Busy Saturday!

I hope everyone had a good Saturday. Ours was pretty busy! We woke up super early and had a little garage sale. I’ve been trying to get ride of some of the things around the house that we never use. The garage sale went alright. We didn’t get as much traffic as we’d hoped, but we managed to make enough money out of it that made it worthwhile. Taft was so cute in his walker hanging out with us!

After the garage sale, we went to a birthday party for one of Brighams friends. It was a great party! Brigham got to wear his Halloween costume, jump in a huge jumper, eat pizza, cake and ice cream, and watch Natalia open her presents. (Check out my gift wrapping... I love wrapping gifts!) Brigham was so excited when she opened the one from him. I think he thought he was going to get it back or something!

This party was a great preparation for Brigham for his birthday. I think he’s finally starting to understand what happens on your birthday. He’s so excited for his party! Poor guy, he’s going to be disappointed when his party has only half as many kids there and no jumper!

Bath time with the Boys!

I just loved bathing Taft in this infant tub. It fit perfectly in my kitchen sink so I could easily wash him without bending over or having to hold him up. I was so sad when he finally got so big and strong that his feet were hanging over the edge, he was constantly trying to sit up, and he splashed so much that the kitchen and I ended up drenched with each bath. So, here are some pics of his last infant bath...

The next day I told Brigham that Taft was going to take a bath with him in the tub and he was thrilled. They both loved splashing together and kept laughing and giggling. Taft loves the bath toys, especially our foam letters. It’s been a couple weeks and my new challenge is keeping him from falling as he tries to grab onto the side of the tub and stand up... which he can’t do yet. He is so curious and wants to grow up so fast!

This is him trying to stand he just isn’t happy with what he can do.

I love this last picture on the right. The look on his face is just so typical of him. He gives me that look all day long, I love it! And, because I don’t play favorites (most of the time), here’s some pictures of Big Brother who couldn’t figure out what I meant when I said, “No, give me a real smile.” Maybe next time...

Interviewing Brigham

Dancing with Daddy

Best Friends Part two

Just wanted to show off some more pictures of my blue eyed boys. They’re getting so big! While I’m here, I might as well write a little about them as they are right now.

Brigham, 2 years old

loves to:


jump on furniture

jump on or over the baby

eat cereal and string cheese and popsicles

play with Taft

watch “shows”

play with his cousins!

Brigham still has his toddler tantrums, he can be in the middle of a full blown freak out, but as soon as Tyler or I sing “Hush little baby don’t say a word, mama’s gonna buy you a mocking bird...” he calms immediately. I’ve never seen anything like it.

Taft, 6 months old

sleeps great!

hates most baby food, refuses to open his mouth

loves his bottle

rolls, scoots, and sits up

loves taking a bath with Big Brother

laughs when Brig is in trouble

Taft is trying his hardest to keep up with Brig. He get so frustrated cause he can’t keep up! He loves to be held and will let you know when he needs the attention!

Best Friends

I love that my boys are already learning to play together! A while ago Taft woke up from his morning nap. I went in and turned on the light, but left him in there because he was happy and I had a couple more things to do before I pulled him out. I left the room, finished my tasks and came back to my sweet boys, BOTH in the crib, giggling uncontrollably. It was adorable. Brigham was so proud that he’d managed to get himself and several stuffed animals in the crib with the baby. I’m so happy to have these two boys who are becoming best friends. I hope they always will be! Better go... they’re still in the crib and Brigham’s yelling “get me out of here!”, he never did learn how to climb out. It was cute while it lasted.
