Big Week

We have had a BIG week!

I'm back at work.

It was also Sydney's turn to be line leader and for show and tell at school, and yes (!) , this is a really big deal :)

Jeff's parents visited all five of us early in the week and played with the kids while I was teaching.

Sydney visited my parents late in the week and got to see the Disney Princess Ice Show in Lexington.

Luke's good friend Emma Kate (and her parents Sarah & Ben) came over to hang out for a while.

Granny and her sister visited Saturday on their way through Bowling Green.

Thankful for our sweet kids, supportive family, special friends and a "2nd job" I enjoy when I have to be away from the place I love being most-home.

This is currently Luke's idea of "tummy time."

Welcome Spring!

We have all 4 been so excited that spring...and spring here! We have spent many hours walking & playing outside since Wednesday, with a couple more days forecasted to come before it gets cool again. Sydney and JJ have been loving playing on their swingset and with other toys outside once again!

And this little boy has been content napping on and off in the shade!

Sydney, JJ and I play lots of hide and seek...I mean A LOT!

So, earlier today, I'm home with the boys and I realize that it's quiet...haven't heard JJ in a few moments :)! I start looking for him...not in the family room, my room, kitchen, his room, but then...


Never a dull moment around here...and I love it!

Today, JJ "helped" me fold laundry. I swear, this little boy makes me smile a thousand times a day.

Luke's Checkup

Today, we visited Luke's doctor and he received a great report. His doctor said he seemed to be the picture of health, which was such wonderful news! He weighed in at 12 lb, 6 oz and measured 24.5 inches long. This puts him in the 95th height percentile, 90th in weight and 75th in head size.

Luke is bigger than both Sydney and JJ were at the age of 2 months (except JJ's very large head)! I am not surprised as I guessed he would be.

He was amazingly good at his appointment and only cried a matter of a few seconds when he got 3 shots! We are really enjoying our sweet and precious baby boy!

Luke @ 2 Months!

Today our sweet Luke turns two months old! He is doing so well & and we will go and check in with his doctor later this week.

Lukey, at two months, your smiles are beautiful-you smile a lot for us! You are "talking" more and more to us. Sydney is always trying to make you say "coo coo." You love being held, and especially like to nap while we are holding you. You also like hanging out in your swing. You have been sleeping through the night for almost 2 weeks now!!! For the past 10 days or so, you have slept from about 1030/1100 to sometime between 7 and 8 in the morning...way to go! We still swaddle you in the Miracle Blanket every night, which you love. You still have lots of hair, although you are losing some on top of your head in the front. You do not cry much at all, only when you are hungry or if you want to be held. You never cry at night when we put you to bed, which continues to amaze us. Your content disposition reminds me of your big brother JJ. You are growing fast and seem to be such a healthy little boy! Pretty much, you are just amazing! We love you!

Princesses love princess parties!

Princess Sydney dressed as Cinderella this past weekend for the special princess party at her school. She had been so excited about this event for a long time! She and her princess friends had their nails painted (by this mom) & makeup done. They ate "princess food," and just enjoyed playing and being together.

Here she is with her favorite friend at school, Reese.

Of course, princesses also have their own special transportation :)

And, princesses love eating cupcakes too!

Take a close look and you'll see Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Tiana, Belle, Rapunzel, Jasmine, Ariel and others...are they not so adorable?!
