Over the past few weeks we've had a tag-team of parents visit us. My mom
was here the first week Evan was born followed by Luke's mom. Peggy was
here while we packed and moved and then my parents came back for a
couple of weeks to visit and help us settle into our new home. It seems
like the weeks have flown by and I can't believe it's been 7 weeks
already. Well, this is the first week "on my own" as a mom of two. I've
been fortunate to have lots of help these past few weeks, but now all of
the visitors are gone and Luke's back to work. I'm trying to get back
into a "normal" routine.which hopefully will close the gap in my
blogging. So to catch up, here's a quick picture summary of the past few
Oh and the De Haan's paid us a visit the first week Evan was born and
before we moved. By the way - plug for Cayden.he's walking! Yep he's
only 8months old! Beat Alyssa by 8 months - geeze! You go boy!
But as far as Evan goes. He's certainly a mommy's boy and loves to be
held. He slept with my pink robe for a while because it was the only way
to get him to sleep by himself at night. So cute, hehe.
He's had a couple of poopie blow outs which sucks and is totally gross,
but I forgave him. As far as the outdoor plumbing goes, it's finally
under control and rarely leaks when we take a peek under the hood.
He loves the bath and even likes taking baths with Alyssa.
The older he gets the lighter his skin color gets.the bottom picture was
when he was only a week old and the top pictures are this last week.
He's awake more and more these days which is fun to see him look around
or give you a crazy stare.
He also has a really cute sad face a deep crying voice.
As for Alyssa. Well she's coping pretty well with her new baby brother.
From the start she was very curious, but careful around him. She loves
to give him kisses, but Evan doesn't always like to receive the kisses.
She is a year and a half now and with that comes all the lovely things
of toddler hood. Such as eating mommy's Dorito's, getting stuck in
Evan's chair, or pulling mommy's clothes off the hangers.even though she
knows she's not supposed to do those things.especially without asking or
So when she gets in trouble she has started to give us something we call
"The Look." It's "the look" that I give her when she is doing something
she is not supposed to be doing. I have a hard time not laughing when
she does this.
Her favorite past times include:
Playing in the rain with daddy; because if you don't play in the rain
you don't get to play outside and she LOVES to be outside.
Drinking out of open top cups.especially if it's not hers. "Deets
Watching movies.especially Praise Baby or one of her sign video's. Which
are thankfully not as annoying as some of the other video's we have.
Brushing her teeth.hopefully she'll always like doing that.
Taking naps. just kidding. Naps are not one of her favorite things right
now, but she totally fell asleep on my bed this afternoon while I was at
the computer. I was emailing and thinking, right after I finish this I'm
going to put Alyssa down for a nap and then I turned around and saw
this. It would be nice if all naps were that easy!
Oh and two more things she loves: Her grandparents and reading. So when
she gets a combination she is one happy camper!
Now that I'm a mom of two, I guess I need to go out and buy myself a
pair of "Mom Jeans!" lol This video is soo funny!
