One step closer....

To finally having a yard! Its taken three years to get this far and I can finally see some hope! Here is to many summers of running bare foot in the sun... right outside our home!!!!

Thanks to everyone who helped out!

one month old!

Seriously can you believe Nash is one month old already. Time sure flies around here! He is the best little baby. So content and hardly ever cries. When he is hungry or has a dirty diaper her grunts. He still isn't a fan of sleeping in his pack and play but we are working on it. He gets up about 2 a night which isn't horrible but he isn't the best at going back to sleep. We are working on that also! He is the cuddliest baby ever. He snuggles right up and I am loving it. I finally have a boy in the house who likes to cuddle. Its fantastic! He has just started smiling and I love it. It melts your heart! I know this little boy needed to be in our family at this time. I thank my heavenly father daily for the amazing blessing he has been in our life and for the amazing blessing of having two healthy little boys. Life is amazing! Happy one month Nash!

14 months

My little man feels no longer little these days! He is getting so big. He is turning more into a toddler everyday now. He is a little pistol and keeps us on our toes all day long. He goes and goes and goes. He makes us laugh all day long. He repeats most words we say to him. He thinks every animal moo's. He loves loves loves dogs. He gives lots and lots of kisses. He loves his milk. He can make a mess in a minute. He is 100% boy. Loves being a big brother, sometimes too much! Thinks he can swim in the bath tub. Loves to tickle toes. Favorite thing for breakfast right now is Special K.  Can still eat fruit with the best of them! Thinks talking on the phone is awesome. Is obsessed with Mickey Mouse anything.
Has to take all his blankets out of his crib and walks around with them on his head!
Thinks Nash's car seat makes a good seat to watch movies in!

Don't you wish your house looked like this everyday....

because if you do I can lend you a crazy one year old! Oh how I love my little boy but he sure knows how to make a mess in two seconds flat! Madden is a ball of fire. He never stops moving, ever! He go go go's all day long but I wouldn't want him any other way!
 The other day we were getting ready to leave and I put Nash on my lap like this and he passed out in two seconds. We couldn't stop laughing at how funny it looked! I can't say it enough how awesome of a baby he is! (Don't judge our pink boppy!)

One more just because I can't get enough of him!

A day at the zoo.

We went to the zoo for Labor Day. Surprisingly it was everyone in our little families first time but mine! Madden loved it and mooed at every animal.

Madden geared up and ready to go!
First time at the zoo for these two fellas.
This is how Madden rode a good percentage of the time!
This is how Nash rode the whole time! He is such a good baby!

He liked the fence a little bit more than the monkeys!

After the zoo we went to my moms. This is Maddens favorite place to sit there!

So this is love

I can't get enough of my boys! I absolutely love them! I look at them and can't get over how lucky I am to be a mom to them. I always heard you will never know what love is until you have kids and I can honestly say it is true. I would do anything for these little guys.

Double the Trouble!

Having two kids has been quite a change around here! Some days I think I got it down, while others I want to go back to bed and start the day over! I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world though. When I had Madden it was so nice to be able to leave him on the couch, in the swing, or under his hanging toys. That is not the case with Nash! We have a big brother who loves to give way to many kisses and tries to play trucks with Nash! The other day I snuck into the bathroom for a second of alone time and came out to this....
Madden decided to check out the baby on his own and scooted the pillows and made steps. Needless to say we don't leave to baby alone on the couch anymore when Madden is around! Still pretty cute that he loves his brother so much!
Its been hard to figure out how to spend time with Madden while taking care of a newborn. I forget how much work a newborn is! I am so thankful to Karson though for helping out. I don't know how people do it on there own.
Handsome little man getting a little tummy time in!
 A lady Karson works with gave Nash these cute little doggie slippers and I love them! He looked so cute kicked back sleeping with his legs crossed!
Nash loves being able to take a real bath now.
Can't you tell by his smile! ( even if it is just gas!)

I love being a mom. Even through the hard days I wouldn't trade being home for anything. Its amazing how you can fall in love and continue to keep falling with each baby!
