Pumpkin Patch

 Not much to say here...just a wonderful time with family at the pumpkin patch this year.  I must say...Derrick, Melissa, Hannah and Nathan are our family away from home.  We couldn't be luckier and I'm so grateful God picked them to be in our lives.  We don't get to spend as much time together as we used to, but we always have a great time none the less.  We love you guys!  Can't wait to take another great vacation together next year hopefully!!

Sweet Baby Toes

Is there anything cuter???  This is what I saw peeking out of the blankets while Reid was playing in his swing.  Had to grab the camera!!  I will try my hardest to have pictures of all 3 boys...not just the first :)  I know it can never be equal...but I'll try my hardest!

So back to the toes.  I might just miss this the most when I have no babies they all grow up.  Don't think I'm crazy, but I love to rub baby toes on my cheeks.  They are so soft!  I showed Justin this and he looked at me like I was crazy!  Believe me...I don't do this with other people's kids..just my own boys when we play.  I've done it to all 3 of them (when they were infants) and just this time showed Justin.  I thought he might like to rub the soft little toes on his cheeks, but he didn't understand :)  It's kind of like my love affair with chomping on their squishy cheeks.  It's just the little things I will miss as they get bigger.  They are only this little once...when they are older they might not take kindly to me chomping on their cheeks or kissing their toes.  haha!!! 

If you're reading this...let me know the little silly things you used to do with your little babies that you miss :)

Hello World!!

Hello blog world!  We're still here...just not on the computer that much.  With the nursing and loving on my baby it doesn't leave much time for blogging.  When faced with the decision of a shower or normal choice is a shower and I think everyone would thank me for that!!  Especially Justin and the boys :)  Haha!  So...I have a few minutes while I'm waiting for Reid to fall asleep before rushing to take a I figured I would upload a few pics!

How are the boys doing you ask?  Still doing great!  I even snuck a few pics of Aiden playing with Reid yesterday...and then again this morning both boys were loving on him while I got my shoes on.  I love the times they play with him on their own accord...not just because I ask them if they want to hold him.  They both look after him so well and think of them as "our" baby...not just mommy and daddy's baby.  It's so sweet to watch!

  This is Aiden's first time picking him up all by himself.  Mommy has been a bit protective since Reid can't hold his head great yet...but since Aiden was on the bed I let him do it all by himself and he was awesome!!  So gentle and loving.  Such a sweet boy!

 Reid loves when Aiden talks to him!  Isn't this the cutest thing!

Max and Aiden both talking to Reid this morning before school.  You can't see it here, but Reid loves them and focuses on them so well when they talk to him.  He definitely knows them and smiles at them!  Can't wait to watch all 3 of them interact with each other as they get older.

Hangin Out

We're not doing a whole lot of anything lately other than getting some house projects done and just hanging out and enjoying ourselves.  Not much to blog other than we are all happy and healthy :)  Boys are doing GREAT with Reid and we're getting adjusted to our new little family of 6 (5 humans and we can't leave Brody out).  So...just so I don't leave the blog alone too are a few pics :)

We do get out of the house every once in a while.  The boys and I went to the zoo for a birthday party.  We got to see the animals after the party and this was too cute to pass up! I know they argue and pick on each other...but they really do love each other.  It melts my heart!

 And to celebrate our 8th anniversary, Justin and I went out to dinner.  Normally I would say it was too early for a date night, but anniversaries are different.  It was nice to have some adult time.  I was tempted to drink some wine on the special occasion, but I knew I would fall asleep on the table.  Maybe once Reid starts sleeping through the night I can have some.  We had a great time...even if we were sleep deprived :)

So what do Reid and I do during the day when we aren't nursing??  Sometimes sleep...sometimes eat and at other times we just look at each other.  He's so precious I'm just trying to soak up all the baby time I can.  I know these 12 weeks off work will go by too quickly!!

I can't get enough of him!  He's 1 month old already!  Hope you enjoyed the pics :)  See you in a few days with more pics I'm sure!!
