Happy One Month Cai!

Wow has this month flown by. Yesterday Cai was one month old and today marks the beginning of the second month. I want it to slow down-i love my snuggly sleepy baby. Right now he is a super easy baby...eats...sleeps...poops...poops some more...eats LOTS more. AND on and on that cycle goes.  He is starting to become a little more alert and has snuck in a few smiles in his sleep. Last week Cai weighed 8 pounds 4 ounces. I can only imagine that by next week he'll be well on his way to 9 pounds!  It is so fun to have a boy in the house! Once in a while i've caught myself calling him 'she' and i just have to laugh-all we've known is girls for 6 years!  BUT I am sure he'll remind me soon enough he's a boy...can't wait for this adventure! :)

And just for he is at 1 week...

Guess What? My mommy tells me i'm a big girl now because i like to go in the potty chair. I think she's right, after all i have a baby brother now and mommy says if i go in my diaper I'm acting just like him. I don't want to be a baby like Cai, so i think i'll keep up the good work. I have an occasional accident (although sometimes i do it on purpose for attention-don't tell mommy) but that's ok! I'm getting really good at doing the potty dance, but i think mommy is getting a little tired of it ;o) Oh-and guess what? I get prizes when i potty good-don't tell her that's why i do it :o)
Enjoy my little potty photo shoot. I was super excited that day that i accomplished something SO BIG!


Since Ava rides the bus now (and she LOVES it) we decided to take a walk and meet her at the corner yesterday-i was ready with my camera since i wasn't able to take a picture her first day. While we waited we played in the puddles (don't worry-you didn't miss the rain...just sprinkler runoff).

This little boy is so sleepy. Sleeps 75% of the day. He sleeps anywhere-even the middle of the floor. Once in a while he wakes up and wants to be held, but the other times are for eating and 'other messes'(lol). I'm wondering if I'll know what to do when this sleepy stage is over, BUT for now I'm enjoying every minute of it. LOVE my sleepy boy :)

1st Grade.

Ava headed off to first grade yesterday! So glad i could take her to her first day of school...last year i was SO sick her first week of school. I remember laying in bed crying because i was missing this new chapter in her life. This year Ava is 'experienced' and happily waved goodbye to me when we left her class. So much changes in a year! Oh-and she gets to ride the bus too, which she thinks is the coolest.

AND of course Marin wanted to be part of the photo action too. Love that she loves to pose for me now!

Photo Shoot {#3}

Ok. This is Cai's last newborn shoot. I promise. Its my favorite. Can you see why? The only thing i realized later is that he is a one-eared monkey. lol. For some reason one ear just kept flopping down. Still darling though. On another note, today Cai weighed 8 pounds 4 ounces and he is 3 weeks tomorrow! Can you imagine how big he would have been if i would have carried him to term? (he was delivered 3 weeks early). I'm kind of glad i didn't have to find out :) Right now he is the perfect (if there is such thing as perfect) baby. Eats. Sleeps. Poops. AND he does ALOT of each of those 3 things. I definitely have a BOY!

*my favorite-its being framed!*

Brother Love'n.

So yes, my girls are still here. I realized i've been neglecting taking pictures of them but thought it was time to get them back on the blog! Marin & Ava are loving their baby brother...constantly giving hugs and kisses. Thankfully those germy kisses have slowed down (but not from mama)and i havn't had to tell them 'hands off' for awhile. Life is settling in as a family of 5. Daddy was home all last week, now Grandma is here this week, so i've been a bit spoiled. I suppose i should say it will really settle (or stir up) when Grandma leaves. haha.
