The Backyard and garden

Here are a few pictures of the backyard. It was hard to get a good picture of the whole thing. We put in 22 tons of rock around the edges. 2 garden L shaped beds that are 12 feet long and 4 feet wide and 18 inches deep. We (well, they) also put in curbing and sod. The whole yard is set up on timed irrigation including lines laid under the rock for future plants. (Citrus trees are soon to follow) The garden is doing well. We have probably 80 tomatoes between 10 plants that are waiting for a little warmer weather to turn red. We also have several peppers. This weekend Seth also planted 3 different kinds of melons, cucumbers, yellow and green zucchini and way too much okra. Lily planted every seed this weekend. She loves being in the garden with her Dad.
The flower picture is one Seth asked me to take for specifically for Katie. It is from one of our Passion vines.

Easter in the Morris home

Yes I know it wasn't actually Easter, but for a few reasons (mainly that I thought it was Easter) we decided to celebrate today. Here are a few pictures of Lily's egg hunt... and my attempt at a pretty sister picture on the new grass. Overall a good day, except that I found out Lily is now the nursery bully... wonder who she got that from :)
Lily thought I had to take a picture of every egg she found. Note that she is wearing the same dress she wore last year for Easter. I would put a little link to it, but I don't know how and I still want to blog about our backyard.

this is how I found Lily the other day

I guess its a step up from the other thing she asked me to suck on this week.

baby smiles

Mayan is 6 weeks old today. She is still a very easy baby. (she is sleeping in her swing right now) She is smiling alot now. Her favorite thing is when Seth sings to her. She tries to sing along. She coos and even laughed yesterday. She is getting bigger every day. She has grown out of most of her newborn clothes. She is a little chunkier than Lily was at this age, but she still isn't really fat. Soon I will post about out backyard... it's finished, but the patio is still a mess, so I haven't taken pictures yet.

Mayan is one month old!

So I started this almost 2 weeks ago when Mayan turned a month old... Inlaws came, backyard got finished, Seth got in a wreck Lily with a double ear infection and pink eye... Mayan in her 6 week growth spurt. life happens... so here is what I wrote originally and someday I will write about the rest. In the mean time enjoy a bunch of pictures.

I can't believe she is already a month old. She is still a very easy baby. She still naps in her swing and starts the night out in her co-sleeper. she only nurses 2-3 times in the night. She enjoys her tummy time and focuses on pushing up on her legs. She still eats like a champ (except when she is gassy) She has a bit of a tough time in the morning, but she still doesn't cry- even when she is hurting. The only time she really cries is if you change diaper when she is tired and hungry or if I make her wait a long time to eat when she is hungry. Overall she is a very easy baby. Her favorite past times include: nursing, staring at her daddy and sister, smiling and peeing most times we change her diaper (which is why she is sleeping naked in my bed in some of the pictures)

Lily has gotten a little better. She isn't rebelling so much at bed time, but still just wants to watch tv in the loft most of the day (which I make sure to limit)She is enjoying having her grandparents here for the week.

Oh and to make everyone jealous I included a picture of the bacon wrapped mango orange shrimp my dear hubby made for dinner tonight :) I love having a man who cooks.
