Sawyer's Room

Untitled

So, if youve  been reading here for a long time, you might have thought it was strange that I didn't document every single decision related to Saeyer's room. I know! But the truth is, his room isn't done yet! His room currrently is our room, his crib is tucked in next to our bed which has made my life wonderful for all of those nightime feedings. And there he will stay for a little while, after which we will actually finish up that room of his.

For now, we use it to play in, read in, change diapers, and store unsighlty things like the extra stroller and car seats. Eventually those things will go downstairs and I can make that room just for him. 

And just for fun, a few pics of the boys. I love that we use all of the rooms in this lttle house so much. I think we've really made the most of our space :)

Sawyer - Two Months!

Untitled

Two months! Already! This little one has already been here for a whole two months, it seems so surreal. But he's settled right in with us and doing SO well.

He's sleeping great (which I know is going to end when teething comes but it's so good now) and he's eating like a champ. I mean, that TUMMY. He looks like a baby Santa. It's crazy. He's way chubbier than Ben was at that age. It's adorable.

Every day Benjamin seems to fall more and more in love with Sawyer. It's the sweetest thing I've ever seen. I have taken about seven trillion photos of Ben nuzzling him that I fully intend on using as some sort of reminder when they are teenagers and are fist fighting over skateboards or girls or whatever. Just wait boys, Mommy has the guilt trips all lined up for you.  

But ya, Sawyer is one of us through and through. We love you little man.

Easter is coming!

This is the first year that Ben is really going to be into the whole Easter business, and we are SO excited to give him some little surprises! 

We have an egg hunt planned that will be plastic eggs filled with Thomas trains...most of his trains are Imaginarium trains, he only has a few of the actual Thomas set so he's going to freak out. We are going to have them lead to this little backpack!!

Yep, he's going through a major Thomas phase right now so he is going to be thrilled. The backpack will be filled with some little toys, chocolates, and The Amazing Machines Book Set.  He has Amazing Airplanes and it's one of his favs so we can't wait to read them all with the boys! 

We are also going go to a nearby farm for an egg hunt and to meet the Easter Bunny. So excited! Ok, so I might be more excited than I should be. Not a bit sorry!

Sawyer's Monthly Photo (and his first!)

I have begun the monthly photos for sweet Sawyer, and so far he's not all together impressed with the process. But too bad! He will get used to his annoying mom constantly taking pictures of him I'm sure. Here he is fresh out of the hospital.

Untitled

And here he is at a month old. Oh that face!

Untitled

He is more alert than ever and he really is such a good baby. He's sleeping pretty well at night for the most part (still up a lot of course but falling back down somewhat easily) and he's growing like a weed. 

He's been a real trooper around here lately as we've all been hit with a bad bad cold and Ben has needed (demanded!) a LOT of attention...but Sawyer's been cool with it. Such a good little brother he is.

Life with our boys

These days are crazy, and tiring, and still a whirlwind. But these days are so, so good. Billy and I still can't believe we are parents of two little ones. Two perfect handsome gentleman. Our Ben and Sawyer. Oh man, are we ever in love with these two.

Ben can't stop kissing Sawyer. It makes me melt every time. Sometimes he won't even kiss him, he'll just put his cheek next to his cheek and hold it there for a second. Sawyer could not have asked for a more gentle big brother, let me tell you. I'll be reminding them of this when they are punching eachother down the road. 

I think I'm going to need to buy about 10 external harddrives for all the pictures I'm sure to be taking for the rest of my life, right? Geez. 

Oh, and I have started Sawyer's monthly photos just as I did for Ben...will share his one month in a little bit!

P.S. No, I don't let them sleep beside eachother unless I'm there with them. I usually let them fall asleep like that and then quickly run Sawyer out of the roon so Benny can get in a good nap. And yes, all naps take place in mommy and daddy's bed, because why not? 

P.P.S. Ive missed blogging. Still won't have much time for it, but I'm going to kind of try. Even if it's just sporatic. But I won't promise because I've become a blogger flake.

Introducing, baby Sawyer

It's been a while. And, he's here! Our little Sawyer.

On February 10th we welcomes our second little boy into our family. That was officially the fastest nine months EVER.

I has him via elective c section, and it didn't go 100% smoothly...but we are all fine and healthy and home after a short stay in the hospital. Billy took his entire vacation for the year to be with me (poor guy, but I'm sooooo grateful he did it). 

Benjamin has been such a good big brother so far. There were a couple of rough days when we got home (Benny was nervous by the crying and, well, his constant presence) but he's totally used to him now already. We are so proud of how good he's been about the whole process. Such a good boy :)

Sawyer is a very different baby from Ben, so it's taking some getting used to, but we are just happy to have everyone home and together. I can't wait to watch these little ones grow up together!!!

I know I rarelly post but I will be sure to share some more updates over the next little while. And I will be posting monthly pics of Sawyer too.

Our Christmas Tree

Over the weekend we put up our tree! I swear this gets more and more fun each year now that we have Ben. He LOOOOOVED the whole process. He's the best little helper and he got super excited about every single ornament.

I can't wait to see his little face when he sees what treats are hidden under the tree for him on Christmas morning! :)

Ben's Big Boy Bed

Untitled

With this little one on the way, we have lots of changes to make around the house...freeing up the crib being one of them. We wanted to do this early so that Ben has lots of time to adjust to the new bed (he's good with this kind of change anyway, but still) so we grabbed one yesterday and set it all up!

Untitled

This bed wasnt the one I'd planned on getting actually. I wanted the Malm twin in white, but they ran out of them and they told me that they aren't making them anymore! Drat! But, this one is awesome, and it has the added bonus of two nice big storage drawers. Plus, no dust bunnies under the bed, YAY!

Untitled

Ben LOVES it, he was so excited as we set it up, and jumped up on it the second he could. Adorable.

Now, I am concerned of course with him falling out. I've seen various rails and wasn't thrilled with them. Then I saw this one, and I had an idea. I took a large heavy duty cardboard tube (not the flimsy kind, you can't bend it), then wrapped it with a thin blanket. I tucked the whole thing under his sheet, and this thing stays put! 

Untitled

It's quite thick, which is hard to see in the picture, and I don't think he will ever be able to push it out. If we have any trouble with it I will go ahead and get the inflatable one, but for now this seems ok! And I have his crib mattress and pillows/blankets on the ground just in case.

So that's one thing done! Only 7368765 more to work on....
