Our little man is one month old...

I can't believe our little man is one month old today.  Man, this month has FLOWN by!  I need to go to bed, but I wanted to post this on his one month birthday.  I am going to try to take a picture of John with Mickey every month to see how he has grown.
Justin and I were talking tonight about how we can't believe we have a girl and a boy.  We truly are so blessed!

Dear John - it has only been a month, but I love you more than you know!  I am so lucky to have you as my little man!  I love how you cuddle and don't mind when I give you a million kisses!  I hope you always stay that way! I love you, Mommy!

Easter weekend...

Justin's family came to visit us last weekend (Easter weekend).  I wish I could think of a great story to tell while they were here, but my brain is so tired and not functioning.. I can't think of one.  I am making myself write and wondering.. how do mother's do it with more than two kids?  I have a friend who has five kids.. seriously.. I don't know how she does it!!

Anyway..we mainly hung out at the house and ate ALOT!  Thank goodness.. the weather was perfect so the kids played outside.  Kate absolutely loves her cousin Sara Beth and aunt Beth.  We did go see Disney Live! while they were here.

Here are a few pictures from the weekend.

John with his cousins.

Aunt Beth and John - this is not a great picture of her, she is beautiful!  I wanted to show the mohawk Daddy (Justin) gave John.  It stuck we couldn't get it down until we gave him a bath the next day.

Justin and Brandon with the kids at Disney Live.  This is after they picked out their souvenirs.  Of course, out of all the items Kate could pick - she picked a cell phone.  She is obsessed with cell phones and purses. 

A highlight for Kate - she had cotton candy for the first time.
Easter Morning
Yes, she started eating candy at about 7:30 that morning.

Ready for church...

All things new...

It has been way too long since I have placed a post on here. Since we have a new addition to our family - our blog got a makeover and I changed our url to

During the past 6 weeks ALOT has happened. We welcomed John to our family on March 11, 2010. He was 7 lbs 10 oz and 21 inches long. With this new little one - the past month has flown by!! I am going to try to be better about posting pictures and stories. I don't want to forget this amazing time in my life. I am barely getting any sleep so it is all a blur anyway - hopefully this blog will help me remember.

Here are a couple pictures from the hospital. I will be posting more. Enjoy!

Here is our little man. He scratched his face up.. but he is still so sweet!

Kate loves her little brother!

John is on his way home from the hospital. It looks like he is waving...

Stay tuned.. more to come...
