Part 2

More on life lately...
These 2 have been bathing together some lately.  I'm not sure yet how I like bathing together.  It is still a little tricky at this point.
Aunt Amanda and Uncle Jason came to visit. 
Sweet Spence sleeping outside

We had some play times with Gray.  These two are definitely the best of friends.
We went to fun day with the church.
Brant loved all the activities.  He thinks he is grown.  They cleared out the jumper for him, and then he refused to come out.
And just for fun a few of Spencey :)

Spence was loved on at a baby shower for his soon to be cousin Kamden.

Update on life part 1

It is so hard to find time to update.  I really really want my boys (and me) to be able to look back and remember these days so even if it is sporadic and all at once I want to try and keep up here.  I started a new job same place different job, and I am busier than ever there and at home.
Well here is part of an update of the past few months....
Papaw and Mimi came to visit us.  They are just eat up...
Daddy teaching Spence to hold his bottle.
We took the boys for a walk on the Trace.  So nice to be so close to it.  I am so helpful with carrying the boys.  I'm barely making it myself 
Just a little family shot
Spence's first time in the "jumpy"
Brant had a fit to get in too.
We love going the park.
Brant loves stacking things and them unstacking and lining them up.
Sweet brothers
Aunt Amanda got the boys new strollers.  We love them!  Spence looks like such a big boy!
This what Brant has looked like EVERYDAY when I pick him up.  He loves it outside!!
more to come....

Spence 3 months

This is Spence right after he turned 2 months old...

This is right after he turned 3 months....

I feel like he grew sooo much in this time!

3 Month update!
  • Weight: Not sure I would guess 15lbs.  He's a big boy!
  • Size: diaper-3 and 6-9 month clothes
  • Sleep usually 6:30 or 7 - 3 and then up at 6.  Sometimes you will go back to sleep for about 30 more minutes here.
  • LOVES :
    •  your daddy
    • looking in the mirror
    • talking to love for us to talk to you and you will babble back at us. It is precious.
    • Brant
    • the swing
    • eating
    • baths
  • Dislikes:
    • the car seat
    • having your nose suctioned or eyes cleaned out
    • the sun shining in your eyes
I say this all the time you are the perfect addition!  You are so calm and laid back.  You rarely ever cry.  You are already sleeping pretty well. You laughed out loud for the first time this month at Brant in the bath tub.  It was precious and we were all there for it.  Since then you are a laughing machine.  We are all the eat up with you!  We love you so much!

Brant at 18 months

Brant at 18 months you....
- Can blow your nose!  This was very exciting for me!
-Have become a tiny get frustrated with us (and vice versa) because you know what you want but can't quite communicate it to us yet.
-Can sign more and say "mo" and you sign please by rubbing both hands on your belly, close enough we will take it plus it is adorable!
-Show us one when we ask how old you are
-LOVE LOVE LOVE fruit snacks.
-You don't get the paci during the day anymore.  We still let you have it at bed time, and everyday has been easier for you to leave it in the bed.  I can't take credit for this your teacher at school just decided to do it cold turkey with all the kids.  She said you have done great.
-Love being outside
-Like to organize things into piles
-Have become the best helper.  You want to do whatever we are doing, and you love to clean Spence's face (not sure he is loving this).
Brant Man,
You are so full of energy!  You are definitely keeping us on our toes.  Daddy and I always talking about how great your hugs are.  You wrap your little arms around our neck and hug us so tight.  It makes our day.  You are a sweet heart and we are continually reminded how blessed we are to be your mom and dad.  We love you sweet boy.
