Timothy finally got big enough that it was easier to put him in the stroller rather than wear him for walks. Plus the stroller makes a good prison for an active Fredrick, haha.
Wesley and his little froggy friend he found on our walk.
A couple of cool dudes. Love Fred's sideways hat.
At the Portland temple. Grandma and Papa were kind enough to babysit so mommy and daddy could have a date.
You have to admit, this kid's got style.
Helping Papa in the shop.
I love that his favorite thing is to be a helper. On tasks that are fun for him of course!
We were flooded out of our apartment for a week of September, and my parents were kind enough to take us in. The kids were in heaven living at Grandma's house! Here they are playing some kind of train/car/spaceship/Idon'tremember game. Love the expressions.
Someone in much too much of a hurry to grow up.
Snuggling on grandma's bed, playing on tablets.
The best part of getting ready for a move for a kid is the boxes to play in!
Wesley helping papa in the yard, wearing Grandma's shoes, his pajama shirt on backwards. Like I said, style.
I have no idea where these boys come up with their games. Or even what this game was. Looks fun tho!
Seriously always happy.
Fredrick celebrated his third birthday (we made it through the terrible twos . . . I'm not sure who deserved the medal, him or us!). We had an angry birds party (our boys tend to latch on to whatever craze Joe and Mandy's boys are going through . . . ). Considering the craziness of our life at the time, this was the best I could come up with for a party.
The boys love to help papa make fresh apple pies. The best part is running the apple peeler/slicer machine!
My funky angry bird cake
He so wants to catch up to his older brother Wesley, who he adores.
Timothy happy to party too! Not even a lack of cake could dampen his spirits.
Angry bird bingo!
Fredrick, we love you so much. You challenge us in unique ways, but your energetic and dramatic spirit brings so much life into our family, we wouldn't trade you for anything. You are the perfect outgoing friend that Wesley needed, you keep me on my toes, and you are full of life and spirit. You have the sweetest heart, and I love your snuggles. You are a smart little fellow, and I can't wait to see the kind of guy you grow into. We are so blessed to have you in our family!
