April 19th through April 23rd

Enjoying a spring shower!


Friday, April 20, 2012
Kelsey was being such a ham. It was at this point that we realized that we needed to get a highchair and stop using the Bumbo on top of the table.


Saturday, April 21, 2012
So we bought Kelsey a highchair...guess Paige thought it was for her. She climbed up, sat herself down, and asked me to put raisins on her tray.

Do you think the girls miss their brother when he leaves on the weekend? They love welcoming him home by spending time in his room (a room that is usually restricted area).


Monday, April 23, 2012
We knew this was going to happen--just didn't know when or by whom. I'm not sure how she did it  but Paige has now broken two windows...Bree only one!

April 16th through April 18th

Monday, April 16, 2012
Waiting for the bus in the morning, Bree takes advantage of the open space in the road to practice her wheelchair skills.

My kids are fish...they love water! We recently took down our above ground pool because of a leak, so while we wait to replace it they kids are enjoying this little blow-up pool. I think Connor still thinks he's in his big pool with all the jumping he does. 


Wednesday, April 18, 2012
The kids came home from school just as I was finishing up washing the car. That led to an impromptu hose fight in the front yard with the kids still dressed in their school clothes--Kelsey watches from a safe distance.

April 13th through April 15th

Friday, April 13, 2012
Kelsey joined her big sisters for their first combined tubby time. I don't plan on doing this too often as it was a little tight, but as soon as Kelsey is sitting up all three girls will be enjoying the suds together.


Saturday, April 14, 2012
Having a west facing backyard means intense sun in the late day. But Kelsey came prepared with her new sunglasses and who wouldn't love a ride in a pink Cadillac.


Sunday, April 15, 2012
Getting work done on the weekends is next to impossible. My attention is always needed and Paige was feeling extra needy today.

April 10th through April 12th

Tuesday, April 10, 2012
Most nights Kelsey sleeps in her crib the whole night through, but every once in a while she'll wake up to nurse and falls asleep with me in the bed. I don't mind sharing a bed with her because this is what I wake up to...her beautiful little face.


Wednesday, April 11, 2012
The kids decided to play with the bubbles they received in their Easter baskets today. I like this one of Connor, who had a bubble burst on his hair.


Thursday, April 12, 2012
I've spent the past few days pruning the bottom of the huge drake elm in our front yard and it's created a beautiful canopy of shade for us. I decided to lay a big blanket down and spread out some toys for Kelsey to play with as we waited for the kids to get home from school. Miss Kelsey sat for the first time, all by herself ( only a few seconds at a time but it was still amazing to see).

Celebrating 100 days of The Coderre Family

It's time to celebrate! I've managed to photograph my family everyday this year and to commemorate that I decided to do something a little different. With iPhones and camera phones now-a-days, snapping photos of our family has become so easy. I'm guilty of grabbing my phone over my camera all the time. I'm constantly shuffling through all the images, deleting repeats and watching old videos when I realized that many of these memories could be lost if anything happened to my phone. So, I loaded all 900 images/videos to my home computer and chose some of my favorites to post below...100 photos to be exact!

Easter | April 8, 2012

Sunday, April 8, 2012
Easter Day...perfect weather, happy children, and delicious dinner and desserts. We don't get many days like this--everyone in one place just relaxing and enjoying each other. Even though we stayed home and had a quiet family dinner, I still wanted to get the kiddos all dressed up and staged an impromptu portrait session. The jasmine was blooming along our back fence, making for the perfect backdrop to my spring portraits. This is the first "formal" picture of all for of our's not perfect but the fact that they were all happy and still for long enough was what made this picture worth it.

All the yummy treats :)

Connor and Kelsey have such a special bond as oldest and youngest. Kelsey lights up when Connor is around and Connor can't help but love on her every chance he gets.

My littlest princess...

I can't believe he'll be ten next month...

This is Connor's personal favorite...

He's trying to be serious but I can see a hint of a smile...

Our little Bree Bree...

She has the silliest little smile...she gets so excited and every part of her shows it.

Miss Paigey...

The kid's get their beautiful eye lashes from their daddy.

Four children...I wouldn't have it any other way!
