Week In Review

WOW! I can't believe it has been a week since I have posted. I feel like such a slacker! Maybe I am not the blogoholic that I thought I was! Not true, this has been an isolated incident, I promise. It has been a busy and fun week as we have been adjusting to having two kids. Brian has been off work since Trent was born and he does not go back until December 3rd! I have loved having him at home. I wish he could be home more often! We having been having great fun spending time together as a family. We have not done anything too exciting - it has just been nice to simply relax and play with our kids. Here are some pics of our week:

Our first family photo :)

A couple months ago, Ashlyn was wearing a pair of overalls with a pocket in the front. She became enthralled with putting little treasures in that pocket - food, toys, etc. The problem was that when she was not wearing her overalls, she no longer had her "treasure pocket". She quickly solved this by using her shirt - ANY shirt - as one big pocket. We are constantly finding crackers, fruit snacks, binkis, and small toys hidden in her big pocket!

These pictures were taken on Thanksgiving. We were sitting around eating pie, when I looked over to find Ashlyn stuffing oranges in her "pocket"! This was her biggest treasure yet! What a hoot!!

It is so fun having a boy! I am in love with this little guy. The only bad part about having a boy is the golden arch you get while changing a diaper. There is no controlling that one! I think my laundry has doubled in the past two weeks.

Ashlyn still loves her little brother. She loves to peak at him while he is sleeping. If she hears him cry she will run to his rescue, making sure he has a binki.

Ashlyn has been spoiled with presents since Trent was born. Maybe that is why she loves him so much! She got this My Little Pony from my friend Sandy - thanks Sand!

It is so fun having two babies in the family. Ashlyn was born just 6 weeks before Maggie and it has been fun to watch them grow together. Now we will get to see Trent and Maya grow together. Aren't they adorable?!

It is so amazing how tiny Trent's hands and feet are. I am excited to watch him grow, but I love how small he is now. It is a bitter/sweet feeling.

Bittersweet indeed. I miss my babies everyday. I'm glad I have sweet little Maya and my buddy Trent to love and hold. Cute pics.

Very nice post and pictures. I love the pictures of Ashlyn and the oranges-that was the funniest thing. Funny-the U game didn't find a spot in your week-in-review. Why is that?

Jamie Lee said...

Got a good laugh with Mindy's comment about the game. Ya, why did we not review this? He, he!

It was so good to see you. Thanks so much for being my best friend! I too wish I could see you more often. You have such a cute family. I can't wait for all of you to come visit!

Those pictures of Ashlyn are great! She will get a kick out of them when she is older! You also have a cute family photo and Trent looks adorable-he looks like he is going to have really blond hair!

Maybe Ashlyn wanted to look like her Mommy Pre-Trent? Am I the only one that saw a similarity with the oranges and pregnancy? Awesome pictures. Cute kids! Enjoy Mini Trent while you can...his Daddy is a big guy.

It cracks me up when she puts stuff in her shirt! Apparently when Trent was born she kept putting Reeses Pieces in there...such a funny kid! Great pictures!

I know why you didn't post for a while...you were in mourning for the utes loss! hahaha just kidding! Those pictures are super cute, you have adorable kids! Those pictures of Ashlyn with the stuff in her shirt were cracking me up.

Sweet post...I can't wait to meet him in person. You have adorable children. I loved Mindy's comment!! I wasn't sure if I would rub it in or not, but I guess since she commented, I will leave it at that and be a gracious winner.
