What we've been up to...

...A LOT, actually!  A whole, whole lot...hence the 2 week lull in posts...oops!  Sorry!  It has been a crazy past two weeks, but as the song goes, "I love this crazy, tragic, sometimes almost magic, awful beautiful life!"  We've had Shawnee's Kindergarten graduation, Jack's BFF Holden was born, end of school year stuff, visitors, sickness (poor Jackbaby!), and tons of other stuff!  Here are some pics of what's been going on and I will elaborate more on other stuff later.

PS, Did you know our boy is 8 weeks old today?!?  He's 2 months on Sunday and we got for his appointment on Tuesday...unbeknownst to him, he will be getting SHOTS!!!  Mama is dreading that :(

Mommy and her boy :)


he and his Daddy are the loves of my life!

believe it or not, this is our first family photo!

raise your hand if you're bout to have a blowout in the middle of cousin Shawnee's graduation!  Yes, Jack Thomas?!?

apparent relief

can't believe he's so grown!

our new little first grader!

the Daddies and their boys!

Jack and Holden finally meet...cradle to grave BFFs!

wait?!?  I'm NOT the only baby here?!?  Ugh!

smiling is his new trick...and I L-O-V-E, love, LOOOOOOOOOOVE it!!!!

My poor babe...but still as smiley as ever, even through the runny nose, coughs, watery eyes, and endless sneezes!

such a sweet personality!

6 weeks!

Since Baby Jack is a whopping 6 weeks old today, I thought I'd share some pics of what he's been up to - from holding his head up to his first time at the pool, Jackbaby has had a busy past few days and I am L-O-V-I-N-G. LOVING this time with our little guy...he's a growing, growing boy!

look at me holding my head up during tummy time on Daddy's chest!
What I am doing?!?  Oh ya know, just loungin' by the pool...gettin' my tan on

Watching TV with my Uncle Kody :)

He even puts his hands like this on his own

look Ma, no hands!!!

fell asleep on the couch in Mommy and Daddy's room while Mommy was doing laundry
sitting up like a big boy!  and completely enthralled with the TV...ahhhhh


the cutest yawn I've ever seen!

looking around at Jack's house


it's going up!

sometimes, I need some's so heavy!

this cracks me up - his facial expressions are hilarious!
