My favorite time of year is coming up,,,SPRING!!  
Spring is so so pretty, not to mention it's when mine and Stevie Joy's birthdays are :)


while playing in the backyard with the kids and sipping on this lovely:

I was all "spring giddy"!! (even my clothes, hahaha)

(come on postpartum body, you only have to whip back into shape ONE more time!!)

I love the Azaleas in our backyard! (P.S. our town is Azalea City)

If I can only keep SJ out of the flowers so they can all bloom ;)

speaking of Stevie Joy, I snapped this pic of her this morning, she will appreciate it :)

Neela will appreciate this:
 (I am pretty sure she sat there for nearly 45 minutes just holding Tommy pretending to drive him around!!)

And, Titus???  Well, brother ALWAYS insists on taking off his shoes when we are outside, it makes no difference if it's Converse, boots, or Crocs,,,brother prefers BAREFOOTIN' IT!!

Just like his daddy! (in college, Seth went an entire year without wearing shoes ONCE!)

 Also, I finally got him using a little bit of signing, in hopes it will help relieve some of his frustration

I love Spring and am so excited about the month of March!!!!!!

Rainy Weekend

It was a yucky, rainy weekend and my kiddos have been fighting off colds, so we stayed indoors a lot this weekend.  We all oooo'ed and awwww'ed over Olive and her perfect little face ;)

and her beautiful, gorgeous EYES!!

I did venture out with Neela Saturday morning to TJMaxx and Toys R Us for a little shopping, it was nice to have some one on one time with just her, Seth and I try really hard to have one on one time with all our kids

Also, I had a Cinderella party during naps on Saturday afternoon, I was pretty nervous about it being 2 weeks postpartum, but I think my belly looks pretty decent :)

Being stuck inside gets us Megows pretty antsy...
We did desperate measures to keep Titus happy :)
This is a teaspoon of ovaltine, haha

His "Joker" face

We LOVE having Seth home on the weekends, the girls just eat him UP!   He is such a cool and FUN daddy!!  I remember as a little girl LOVING to play rough with my daddy,,,the girls are the same way :)

Seth is such a good sport about it too!!

The kids and I did "W" as our letter this week, so we thought it would be fun to make a dirt cake,,it was fun, but not so yummy :(  the pudding burnt :(
Oh well, it was fun and that's what really matters AND they are both doing so well with their letter W, they can draw it and play "I spy" with that letter very well!  I have some smart kiddos :)

Titus ADORES his sisters!  So I knew that he would love having a little sister!  He gets so excited to see her and love on her!!  His favorite part about her is her little toes and little fingers, which I think is so so sweet!!

She's getting so big, it's hard to believe she is 3 weeks old, that's too close to being almost one month old :(  Why does the newborn stage have to fly by sooo fast???

It was a nice weekend in deed, lots of reading,,,

and snuggling :)

Red Light/ Green Light

Our new favorite outside game to play lately has been red light/green light!  The kiddos are so cute,,,they line up at the fence:

*not sure what Titus's deal was here?                                                 

 And I shout out the "Red light/Green light/Yellow light" (not sure if the yellow light is something I made up? you just run r-e-a-l-l-y sloooow!)

Stevie Joy pretty much always wins :)  
She often likes to be the "light" too, as well


This was one of my favorite games to play as a kid, I love that the kiddos are getting old enough to start playing some of these games too, we do duck duck goose, ring around the rosie, hide and seek, tag, etc,,,they are at such a fun age :)

And, of course, we are still loving our trampoline, it's something that the kids never get tired of!  Our neighbors were so so sweet to give it to us!

I LOVE her big eyes!

If they're happy, I'm happy :) :)


and they look pretty durn happy :) :)
I love our back yard!  We are so blessed with how big and fenced in it is, and the fact that it's right off the kitchen, I can let the kiddos play out back while I straighten up the kitchen real quick or throw on a pot of coffee :)

Our Prayer over Titus

 Lord Jesus, you know Titus far better than we do and ever will...

 You knit him together in his mother's womb

You know the number of hairs on his head

  We have faith in you, Lord, to heal our sweet, precious, rambunctious son

We also trust in the plan you have for his life

We walk by Faith

And You Lead the way!

Fear and Anxiety have NO place here!

For our hearts will trust in You!!

Heal me, LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.
Jeremiah 17:14 

In Jesus name, Amen!
