"That looks like a cool piece of grass!"
"Good thing I've been working on my fine motor skills!"
"Mommy and Daddy, this is SO COOL! I think I like this outside place!"
There's nothing like putting your toes in cool grass! :)
I sure can't wait to spend the whole summer with my Bubby! :)

Mommy missed your 4 month letter and this one is definitely late.... You are now three days away from being 6 months! I just thought I should update you a little on what you've been up to the past couple months! Firstly, I cannot believe you are already a few days shy of 6 months! Everyone told me time would FLY by but nobody said it would literally race by at the speed of an Olympic runner racing in the 100 meter dash! On Saturday morning, Daddy and I were playing with you in our bed and I said, "Can you believe we have a son?! AND, he is THIS perfect?!" Some days it is still so surreal, I just have to pinch myself to believe it! I don't know what I did to deserve you, and really, I probably don't deserve you, but I sure am glad God decided I needed you! :)
Here lately you have decided that Daddy is just a little bit cooler than Mommy. You literally light up when he comes home. All he has to do is walk into the room and you immediately start cracking up! Mommy loves watching you and Daddy together. You have such an amazing father. You are one lucky little boy. You are his world and he would do absolutely anything just to make you smile!
You are just so sweet! You have such a sweet smile that says, "I love you, Mommy!" When you're nursing, you rub my cheek to let me know you love me. When I'm holding you, you put your arms around my neck and "snuggle me" (that's what we call it). And, oh my goodness Tucker, does Mommy love you! There are no words that come close to expressing my love for you. I have no idea what life was like before you came into it.
Oh my goodness! I almost forgot! A major change since your 3 month letter is that you are in your big boy crib now. We made the transition from your bassinett a few days after your turned 3 months. You made the transition like a pro, it was nothing for you. You slept through the night that first night just like you had always been there. The truth is, Mommy would still like for you to be in your bassinett because your room just seems so far away, but you were just literally too big for your bassinett, so Mommy really didn't have much choice! It helps that I finally convinced Daddy that we needed a video monitor. Now all I have to do to check on you is push the botton and I can see you sleeping soundly! (On your side, that's how you sleep :)
Well, that's all for now. Afterall, in only a few days I'll need to update you with your 6 month stuff :)
Mommy loves you way more than you will ever know!

While we colored Easter eggs, several came close to ending up in your mouth! We haven't even started you on rice cereal yet and you're already diving into hard boiled eggs! When Mommy wouldn't give you any of those bright colored eggs, I guess you thought you would try your luck with Aunt Holli!
"Look Mommy what Daddy and I found!" One of your big cousins, Makenzie, helped you see what was inside.... "What is this? A duck in a bunny suit?!" "What??!! It sings and moves?! Mama, check this out!" After all the excitement of playing with your new toys, you were tuckered out! You missed the Easter egg hunt because you were taking a nap. But, you woke up refreshed and ready to soak up some sun! :) Daddy and Mommy went for a ride....while Memaw rocked you on the porch swing, one of your favorite things! What a busy day! It was time to head home. And, wouldn't you know it, the Easter Bunny visited Mommy at home!
Mommy didn't know that Daddy was going to talk to the Easter Bunny about what to get Mommy, or Mommy would have told him what to get Daddy.... :(
Easter Sunday was just as busy! First, we had church and Sunday School. You looked SO cute in your Easter outfit! Mommy couldn't resist taking lots of pictures of you and Daddy :)"Sure is bright out here! Where are my shades?"
Yeah, Mommy needed her shades too! :) After church, it was time to head to Springfield to visit Nana and all our family there. Nana sure does love you! "Boy, it sure has been a long weekend....These toys Daddy is trying to entertain me with just ain't doing it!" Finally, it was all over and time to head home.
"Daddy, are your sure you don't want me to drive?" (Please note: the car was NOT moving in this picture! We would NEVER drive without Tucker in his car seat. He decided he needed to eat before we could make it home, so we pulled over to satisfy his hunger!)
After such a busy weekend, it is nice to be home. But, sometimes in all that "celebrating" we can get lost in what we're celebrating. We're celebrating the resurrection of Jesus. Our God is very much a living God and is alive today. On Easter Sunday, during Sunday School, we heard an amazing testimony to just how alive our God is and how he is working in our lives, even when we don't know it. I hope that each of you are reminded, not just on Easter and other holidays, but every day just how much God loves you!
Happy first Easter, Tucker Bug! God loves you and so do I!
