Weekend Wrap-up

Such a fun weekend behind us...can't believe this is my last week before heading back to work...

Friday...we went to library story time and then to The Coop to play and Chick Fil A with Brandt and Ella....when we got home for nap I realized that lovie was missing...our first lovie missing moment...I then thankfully remember Isabella setting her down to play with the puppets at the library...thankful she went down for her nap no problem without her and we were able to rescue lovie after nap....

Ready for library time....
This girls zest for life and excitement is contagious....


This sweet boy is getting more and more alert...now if we could have more and more of these smiley, happy moments...life will be grand....
having a blast...

hugging on sweet Ella...

SO excited after we rescued lovie...

Lovie got to accompany us to Target after recovery...she usually takes a nap in the car...after our scare I will be ordering another lovie and recommending she take a night, night in the car more often...

Saturday...we had a blast at the Ellis' annual Oktoberfest....


Santa may need to bring her one of these trampolines...she was obsessed

Sweet Grey and Isabella...little buddies....

Sunday...daddy woke up pretty sick with a cold so we skipped church and he rested while we headed to WinKids for Cooper's 2nd birthday party....

Isabella took a while to warm up since she missed nap time but then had a blast with Kayla....she loves older friends

Love these 2 girls...old gymnastics buddies....friends since 5th grade....

She loves to get to eat at her table these days...how funny how quickly your home has to become more kid friendly and livable...we have officially been overrun with kid stuff and I wouldn't have it any other way though my Type A self never saw it coming...


Excited to go bounce...

My little loves...

Sweet boy practicing his gymnastics moves...

Sweet future BFFs

We have a relatively low key week planned....hoping to finish up a few household projects before the work world returns...sigh:(

Ya'll I only have one week left of maternity leave after this week...sigh, tears, ugh!! I'm not ready, I mean who is....these last almost 3 months have been amazing and therapeutic for me....I have loved being home with Isabella and sweet Cayson...we have lived it up, been productive and probably not near as lazy as I should have been...but with an almost 2 year old that is near impossible!! My sweet girl loves, loves attention and likes her momma to partake in the activities with her....
Our biweekly schedule included library story time...free education and fun!

She has become obsessed with choo choos lately and she was just slightly excited about owning her first choo choo...

We decided to revisit the FM pumpkin Patch with Mimi...it was fun...had a little picnic lunch and really enjoyed it...

Had to pose with Minnie again:)

Picnic lunch...thank you Annie's lunches...perfect, convenient healthy lunch for my little...

This girl...

She wanted to see how tall she was...

The only pic I got of sweet Cayson...he actually slept almost 2 hours in his car seat...thats what happens when he misses his morning nap....




This girl and these boots...apparently well worth the investment since she LOVES them...

Helping mommy with her birthday invites...she was so proud of herself for blowing up the boon:)



$1 Target section for the win again.....bath tub finger paint...Perfection!!

2 months-Cayson

Oh sweet Cayson....how are you possibly 2 months old already...my mom asked me recently if we have reached the point of not remembering life without you and I can say we have...I truly can't imagine what our lives were like without you....life has gotten exponentially busier but so much more fun and amazing...these last 2 months have been such a crazy adjustment....busy with entertaining your sweet sister...lots of play dates, errands (my to-do list while on maternity leave was a mile long), fall festivites have kept us busy....

You HATE your car seat if you aren't asleep in the car you are screaming....you do not stay asleep in it if we go out and about (except a handful of amazing times;)). You prefer to be held/worn in the ergo or Moby Wrap...I honestly can't blame you....The Ergo has been our life saver...I use it to wear you anytime we are out and about, to grocery shop, to Target;) (yes I used that as a verb, Target is so amazing it should have its own place in the dictionary, oh wait, do we even have dictionaries anymore;)), to play with sissy, etc...

We have finally switched your reflux medicine to Nexium (thank you horrible insurance for refusing to cover Prevacid), you choked down Zantac for a month and momma and you can't take it anymore so insert Nexium, only $100 a month, ha but so worth it....you don't love it, but you don't hate it as much as Zantac...

When you are happy you are SO happy....you love to coo and talk to momma...we even heard a few giggles that I can't catch on camera because you then become to mesmerized by momma's phone just like your sissy...

You are so smiley and talkative on the changing table...just like your sissy as well....you love, love the swing and to be held and rocked...your sweet sissy mimics momma shushing you and swaying/rocking you...its rather precious....

You have started to sleep a tad better but still get up 2-3 times at night....you think 6 am means rise and shine....you refuse to go back to sleep unless you are held and cuddled...once again I don't blame you this just probably won't work well when momma has to go back to work....tear:( You still nurse every 3 hours during the day....we do Baby Wise as best we can with an ever changing day and schedule....you are so flexible thank goodness...you go with the flow...

You still have your cranky/colicky moments in the evenings but they are fewer and farther between...I have found that if you get a bath and really good swaddle around 6:30 this seems to help....thank goodness...there still is a strange fussy switch around 5 pm but mommy is learning your needs/desires more and more everyday....

We love you sweet boy more than you will ever know....can't imagine our lives without you...
