life through instagram {#2}

my sweet girl has to hold something when she sleeps. 
look at that tight grip...

little man is a great eater! we've been blessed that he pretty much likes anything i put in front of him, or at least he tries it. breakfast: eggs with cheese and spinach, toast with jam, and fruit salad.

this past weekend, one of the islands where i live had their semi-annual island wide garage sale. my mom, sister, and i go every year...twice a year...we get coffee and donuts and head out for about 6 hours of treasure hunting. this is me and my sis goofing off.

jude playing in one of my finds from the sale...a radio flyer toddler push wagon. msrp $ cost $5.00! woohoo! i got some great deals this time!
the one downside of all my garage sale and consignment shopping...2t doesn't always mean 2t!
these $3.00 pj's are his size, but not! the shirt is wayyy to small!

i just love this girls smile! look how her whole face smiles!

we've been making tents in jude's room after we moved him to the toddler bed! oh my, i didn't tell you we moved him to the toddler bed! it's been a long 2 weeks, but he's doing well. i put a sheet over the bed and tie it to a chair in his room. i'm thinking about making one of those adorable tents i've seen on pinterest for him...we'll see. by the way...i love black and whites!

jude has the lights that make stars and the moon on his ceiling. we put it in the tent.

i was amazed that my two year old caught a grasshopper and ladybug all on his own! he was so excited!

the grasshopper is to the left. he picked our weeds and put them in there for the ladybug. i was so afraid he was going to smash them and then i was going to have to teach him about death! thankfully he was careful. we waited till daddy got home, so he could show him what he found. then, i told him we needed to let them go to go be with their families. he was ok with that and took them out and threw them in the grass...yes, he threw much for being careful.

last night i went to a going away party for a sweet friend of mine that i've known since college. she's moving all the way across the country to washington! the party was at a place called fear no easel...cute huh! well, it was so fun! we painted a picture of the cooper river bridge. the fun thing is, anyone can doesn't mean it looks great, but anyone can do it.
