It's been a long time.

Remember us?  Well we are still hanging around in the beautiful Oregon.

Zuri is as imaginative as ever and the sweetest big sister. She's obsessed with dance and music, seriously, she can move.  She is one kind spirit, too.

Dot is our power house. She keeps us laughing constantly, silly faces, squawking, you name it she'll do it.  She's currently really big into riding her Strider bike. I love watching her cruise around.  She is fearless.

Rem is 91/2 months already and is a hefty little mamas boy.  He is close to walking by himself and is obsessed with where his sisters are at at all times. His favorite is climbing on their bunk beds. which scares the crap out of me, but he thinks it's a riot. He's straight up exhausting.

 Quite frankly they are the cutest crew ever and I love them all.

Chris took this picture of rem and me about a week ago. It's a good memory for me.

My friend, Whitney Whiting, took family pictures for us about two weeks ago. I was crazy excited since it was our first real family photo shoot since Z was about 10 months old.  Our family has grown quite a bit since 2010.

And these are a few that Chris and I have taken recently. they're pretty cool cats these guys.

Remington Hardy Vial

8 lbs 10 oz. 20 3/4 in of awesome.

On August 4, 2013 at 7:16 pm Remington officially joined our lives.  Making our family of four now into a family of five.  Five. Wow. 

Rem is our first boy and he's a mama's boy already.  I love the little guy.  He's got a very sweet spirit and a strong healthy body. 

Dot was smitten from day one. She tries to get me to pass him off to her all the time, "I-wanna hold it?" it's hilarious.  Z did the same thing as when Dot was born, ignore the new thing and get very nervous when I'm breast feeding. Poor kid. She is starting to pay attention to him now by playing games with him when he's on the floor.

Chris took a slew of Rem pictures the first few weeks and I figured I should get them up before the kid is basically a toddler.  Of course I can't go without mentioning that the coyote pelt in some of the pictures is indeed a kill Chris had a few years ago right after D was born. Nice, right? My man the hunter!

 D had to jump in on a few of these pictures.  She had been running around the farm hence the crazy hair.  She looks awesome anyways.

 My mama came into town from Virginia for a few weeks, which was a-ma-zing.  I hadn't seen the lovely lady in two years! TWO YEARS! Honestly, how did that happen?

The Beach

I'm not accustomed to the Northwest beach days.  When I think trip to the beach my mind goes to my previous California days.  We could get there in 10 minutes, it was nice and toasty, and when we were done we went right home.   Oregon beach days not so much. But this beach day, man, it was perfect.  Great sunshine, warm, windy, and the girls were in heaven.  Hopefully we will get more of these this summer.
