Prayers to the Easter bunny

Alright my sweet sweet ac has the Easter bunny's powers a little bit confused. This was her prayer at dinner "God is great God is good let us thank him for our food. Especially chocolate cause it's my favorite. Can you please put extra in my easter basket. Amen".


I think she might be a little confused!!:)

Max turns 6 weeks old!

Busting at the seems! Maxwell is growing so fast...he's already in 3-6 months clothes!

Mom of Two

So many of you keep asking me how it feels to have two kiddos.....IT FEELS GREAT!! I am loving every minute with sweet Baby Max. I love watching Ava Claire interact with him and try to "teach" him things...I really love it when she tells him "when you get big like me you can do this Max"...she thinks she is so "big" now!

She has settled in smoothly...she loves him so much and loves to help with him. He also loves watching her...he is amazed by all of the things she can do. She helps me keep him entertained. She loves dancing and singing for him...he will just sit and watch her! Very helpful to me too....especially when I try and cook. She gets to be on baby duty...and she LOVES being in charge!

Max is a sweet baby...he sleeps well at night and is pretty mild mannered. his biggest flaw is wanting to eat AS SOON as he wakes up...makes it kind of hard to go to dinner...because when he wakes up he wants to eat that minute! So we're still working on trying to learn to wake up happy...but who am I kidding?? I rarely wake up happy and ready to go. It takes me time I'm trying to be understanding.

There are moments when I have to stop and remind myself that he's only 6 weeks old..he's just been out-and-about so much earlier than AC was...that I keep forgetting he's still just a little guy.

So, to answer your question, "how do you like having two?"....I LOVE it! I am trying to enjoy every single minute with this sweet baby...because this might just be my last baby :( We haven't totally ruled out a third....but it kind of seems like we will be content with these two precious angels and not be greedy for another. But we shall see..... :)

Big Sis

Big Sis is soooooo proud of her little brother...she absolutely loves getting to hold him...especially when it is all by herself! She just laughs the entire time...and big ole Max looks HUGE on her! These two kiddos are so precious! Max just watches her...he thinks she is so cool too!

My Little Bunny

My sweet little Max dressed up like a bunny. His big sister said "he is the cutest bunny ever"...and I have to agree with her!

Max lovvves to stretch out on his changing table...he just stretches everytime you put him down. Hoping he stretches enough to make those legs longer...right now, he is long in the torso and not so much on the legs!

Soccer Mates

Ac and her little soccer mates at practice. She is having a blast playing soccer this season. Matt is coaching and he is loving it too. It is so fun to watch them on the field trying to score goals! Too cute!

Soccer Princess

My sweet little girly-girl is playing soccer this season. Don't worry....she's not losing her girly-girlness either....she periodically stops for photos (and poses on her own) while playing. She is a hoot!


SO thankful for these sweet kiddos!

Park Fun!!

We love the park!!! AC was playing soccer with daddy and Max was snoozin while I strolled him!! It was a fun family told us we should have brought food for a picnic....funny girl!

1 month old!!

Baby Max is 1 month old today....hard to believe he is already a month old! Time is quickly passing....

Can we keep him forever?

My sweet Ava Claire never ceases to amaze me! She is the sweetest kiddo ever! She woke up this morning and came into my room. Baby Max and I were laying on the bed watching the news. She immediately gave him a kiss and said good morning to him...then she looked at me with those sweet eyes and said "mommy...I really like Baby Max...can we keep him forever?" Absolutely melted my heart! Of course I replied with "yes, of course" and she smiled realllllly big, kissed him again, and said "Baby will always be in our family. We are so lucky".

So, people keep asking me "How's AC doing as a big sister?"...I think she's doing just fine!!! :)
