Happy Eight Months Nicholas

It seems to me that time is going by much faster than it did when Zack was a baby. I loved it. I felt like I really got to enjoy each month and every little moment that it contained. With Nick, things are moving much faster. For instance, I thought I had at least another week before he'd officially be 8 months old. But nope. Things are only going to go faster now that the Holiday season is upon us.

Here is a look at our sweet, overtired 8 month old....

Happy Halloween

October brought a lot of fun and excitement to our home. We spent almost every weekend at some festival or other. The weather, while not great, has cooled down to a tolerable temperature of 85 degrees....I'm looking for something more in the area of 70-75 but anything beats 100-110!!!

Since Zack can be more reserved about most things, we decided that we'd talk up Halloween and trick or treating. We got his little pumpkin out and let him trick or treat to us for an m&m We read books about Halloween and watched some kid shows about it too. He was all in.

Happy Seven Months Nicholas

It is finally October and finally cool enough to hangout outside. We have been loving the weather! The windows and doors are open and we have fresh air floating through the house. It is glorious. Summer really got to me this year. Most of the time the heat doesn't bother me, but now that I have two kids, one who loves the outdoors, it is difficult keeping them busy and happy while locked up indoors.

October officially kicks off our holiday season. We have the State Fair, Oktoberfest, Pumpkin Patch Festival, Trunk or Treat, Halloween and then we will be well into November and gearing up for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I cannot wait.

Meanwhile, here is a look at our very big 7 month old...

Zachary is Two and a Half!!!!!

I was looking for a particular photo on my phone and ended up taking a trip down memory lane. I enjoyed looking at photos and videos of Zack from late last year... but it made my heart ache. It seems that almost every single day Zack is doing something or saying something new. He is more independent and his imagination is in full bloom.

The corners of my eyes sting with tears because some days, when I look at him, all I see is that teeny tiny baby fast asleep in his bassinet... I blinked and now he is 2.5!!! What the hell! Where'd my baby go?

Here is a little bit about our sweet 2.5 year old...

Happy Six Months Nicholas

I want to baby is already 6 months old. It's going by so fast. We have already put away some of the baby baby things - like the swing, rocker, co-sleeper. I find that I am much more aware of my days with Nicholas. I am really trying to soak it all up and appreciate it as much as possible.

Well, here is how our big six month old is doing ...

Happy Four Months Nicholas

I know, I am so late with posting this. I started writing on Sunday night and have worked on it all week as I've had time. This week I have dealt with epic tantrums, a baby that sleeps like crap, a broken dryer, a broken garage door, cable bill issues followed by cable outage and all on about an hour and a half of sleep a night.

Anyway, July is here and our little Nicholas is 4 months old....

Happy Three Months Nicholas

I feel like I am always saying this, but time is sure flying by.... here we are with a two year old and a three month old. I honestly cannot remember what life was like prior to Nicholas' arrival...let alone Zack's. Our baby boys are growing so fast and I am too busy to find the pause button.

Here is a look at our big three month old...

Happy Two Months Nicholas

I really cannot believe how quickly time is going by. I am excited to watch Nick grow and see him become more and more interested in the world around him. The best part is watching Zack warm up to him. He is so gentle with his brother. I hope they have a good relationship.

Hoppy Easter and such...

We had a wonderful Easter Sunday, although, holidays just aren't the same when you're miles away from your friends and family. I am trying to remember the last time we were home and celebrating with family for a major holiday, but nothing comes to mind. We've been back for 4th of July and Halloween almost every year but I think that's about it.

Also in this post.... Nicholas gets fat shamed...

Happy One Month Nicholas

Has it really been a month since Nick arrived? Time is going by so fast. Nick is starting to lose that newborn look and is starting to look more and more like a baby. I am trying to enjoy every precious moment since I know how quickly it goes by...

Home with baby...

Life could not be better. I am so unbelievably blessed to have two beautiful little boys. My heart is beyond full. We have been a family of four for 19 days and are happy to say that the transition has been a smooth one thus far.

Here is a little bit of what is happening around here...

Welcome Sweet Boy

Well, as promised, I am here to post about the birth of our sweet little Nicholas. It was a long labor and delivery, followed by, what felt like, an even longer stay in the hospital.

Zachary Turns TWO

Today is a very special day for our family.

Today our sweet little Zachary turns two!!!! When I look back on the past two years I am baffled at how quickly they have gone by. He has grown so much in these past two years.

Winter Melon; Week 38

I am feeling accomplished today. This past week was spent finishing up loose ends and making sure that we are ready for this baby to arrive. I am almost done preparing for all of my March birthdays - not including Nicholas, I have 4 birthdays to celebrate.

Another Non-Stress Test down and one more to go. Everything looked great. Nick has slowed down on his movements, so it's been taking longer to get what they'd like. We get there eventually and that is all that matters. I have another ultrasound and prenatal today, which will more than likely be my last since they will be inducing on March 9th, unless I go into labor on my own before then. We'll know more after the visit, since they'll be "checking" me today.
