This is what we do

If Colson had it his way, he'd be taking his naps with Lewis.
Last night KC and Colson grilled up some fabulous steaks! They were a-mazing! Thanks to the turtle bbq we received from KC's grandma when we got married. It's charcoal and produces the best grilled food. Colson helped of course.
Colson also helped me make some pie-dough today. He couldn't resist the flour on the table, and I couldn't resist telling him not to touch it. He loved it. It was messy, but he loved it. What else can I say? I'm a sucker....or maybe I'm just a fun mom that likes to say "yes"...or maybe I'm both. (What would pie-dough be without the help of an excavator anyway?) We took scraps of the dough, like we used to do when with my mom when I was little, and we sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on them and baked them up and ate 'em for a little treat.
Has anyone noticed that Colson has had that red firecoat on in every picture? It's an understatment to say he's obsessed with it. He wants to wear it everywhere, and he almost does. He's sleeping now and this is my chance to get some organizing done.

In Style

My friend Anna, from over at Sugarline, showed up at my baby shower with this awesome quilt for Lewis. He's been snoozing in style ever since.

Lewis has a comfy spot on the clothes dryer after his baths. He seems to love hanging with some warm towels on top of the dryer while it's vibrating beneath him. I think this technique could be in the family for awhile.

Lewis is getting so big already. Today I put him in some jammies that were 3-6 mo.!!!
Bath time with Daddy. so precious.

Colson and Grandpa

My father is the best playmate for an adventurous little boy. They flew kites, chased pheasants, chased down a police man and a fireman, went to breakfast together, ate cinnamon rolls, dug in the dirt, rode the escalator, watched an excavator, and played the harmonica. For Colson, my folks' visit was all about Grandpa.

Grandma & Grandpa meet Lewis

Lewis was a delightful boy for his Grandma and Grandpa this past week. It was wonderful to see them together. Grandma snuggled with Lewis while Grandpa took Colson on adventures, and mama got to do all sorts of selfish things, like run to the store with no children, and exercise, and shower whenever I felt like it, and nap late in the afternoon. Wonderful!

things to gobble

Ok, are these stout little legs not the cutest? Yes, I could gobble them up.
We braved Winco today. I'm proud to say that I have finally put these grocery bags to use. I bought them quite some time ago and kept forgetting to put them in the car. Alas, this is my 3rd time using them and I quite enjoy having them around. They carry waaaayyyy more than a regular plastic or paper bag would, thus making trips from the car to the home much more efficient. This becomes significant with my little ones. Speaking of efficiency, I need to make use of my time with 2 children snoozing. I've got toys littering my living room and a mountain of clean laundry that needs some maintenance.

3 Weeks Old Already

I am keeping my eyes wide open, enjoying every stage, every cuddle, every wrinkle, every tiny baby part. I have been through this before. I know how fast it goes.

Dragon Slayers in Training

Colson loves Lewis already. He frequently asks me to wake him up from his naps, and when Lewis is awake he asks me if he is looking at him play with his toys. Today I had to make Colson stop giving Lewis tennis balls. He would set them up on his lap and say "here ya go baby". Thankfully, Colson has a tenderness about him and he really seems to care about others. This is very precious when played out already brother to brother. I'm so excited to watch them grow together. Colson is already planning on teaching him how to slay dragons. And when we asked Colson what was important for Lewis to know, he said in response, "Cars and Trucks!" I'm feeling outnumbered around here, but I suppose I'm used to that with 3 older brothers and no sisters growing up. I like boys and am sure thankful for the ones I've been given.

On an unrelated note, today I've seen clouds, sun, rain, and snow. I'm ready for some warmer weather. I'm ready for spring. I'm ready to not see a fresh layer of snow on the ground when I get out of bed in the morning. There is a high of 70 degrees this weekend. that's the word on the street at least. and that would be just what the doctor ordered.

The Story of the Big Boy and His Big Day

Yesterday was a BIG day, for a BIG boy, who went BIG Potty, in the big potty. His mama was so proud of him that she took him to the ice-cream shop to get an ice-cream cone. The boy loved the treat, and never had an addicent in his pants again!

(ok the end is wishful thinking. But this was a BIG step, a hurdle in fact, and it needed some celebrating).
