Household update


 Hi there.  We are all still alive, in case you were wondering.  In fact, we are doing pretty darn well.  It's just that I'm sadly exhausted after putting two kids to bed so I usually go to bed pretty early.  So I'm sorry I'm depriving you of adorable pics of my kids.  Because they are pretty darn adorable.

Sam is just...well, adorable.  Let me think of a synonym...delightful?  Who knew that babies could be this way?!  No offense to Jack but Sam is a walk in the park compared to him.  Smiley at all times, never cries during the day, is dragged everywhere and stays happy.  He will go to anyone and everyone.  And he is super easy to put down at night.  He isn't giving us giant stretches of sleep still at night but NOTHING like Jack.  He wakes up every 2 or 3 hours but if you feed him he goes right back to sleep without much fuss.  It's awesome.


Of course, one of the best things about Sam is seeing his big brother interact with him and vice versa.  Jack is a god in Sam's eyes and he is most excited to see him throughout the day.  He can be fussy in the bath but if Jack pops his head in, he breaks out into a smile.  Tired of bouncing in the bouncer?  Just have Jack come up to him and play with him and Sam is no longer tired of being there.  And Jack is just amazing with him.  He loves Sam and is constantly asking about him.  He exclaims that he would like a sandwich but that "Sam can't eat sandwiches!"  And he'll hug him and say good morning each morning at 6am.  They are best buds and I hope it stays that way.  At least for a little while.

Sam amazed by Jack's storytelling abilities

Holding hands


Perhaps a little TOO much hugging from crazy big brother

But basically we are doing very well.  Very busy with my MOMS Club stuff and all of Jack's play dates.  Sam is a hit with the older toddler crowd so that's cute.  The other day my family came up with so that John and I could get a date night and Sam was, again, great.  And very cute in a cowboy hat.

Jack had some fun too with Grandpa and Aunt Julie.

So we're doing good!  John certainly enjoys having his boys who love basketball and music as much as him.

And I like playing with this cutie while big brother is at preschool.  :)


  1. what timing! i clicked back just to be sure, and what do you know, a new post with adorable bro pics, not to mention the prettiest ever pics of you and sam in blue! yay.

  2. Gosh, that's so sweet! I'm so happy that Jack has warmed up to his brother. Brothers are magical. They just have a strong bond that doesn't need a lot of maintenance. At least, that's how my brothers are. :)

  3. Two Boys!!!! I love that you are loving it. =) They are adorable; you are gorgeous. =)
