6 weeks!

I had my post-partum check up today--everything was great! Sitting in the waiting room at the doctors office I couldnt help but think about how different I feel with Charlie at 6 weeks than I did with Caden. As I have posted about previously I had a HUGE battle with post-partum depression with Caden and honestly do not really remember the first 8 weeks of his life. With Charlie it has been SO different...with a lot of help, a lot of prayer (and a little "just in case" medication) I have not had the same struggles this time:0 (of course there have been some "bad days" but nothing to the extent of last time). Enough about me, let me tell you about my sweet little Charlie.

People say that each kid is so different and even at such a young age my boys are proving te validity to that statement. Here are some things that make Charlie completely unique:

-he loves to be swaddled up nice and tight (caden hated to be swaddled from day 1)

-Charlie does not like is paci...yet

-he hardly ever cries. seriously.

-Charlie is nursing like a champ (caden was on formula only from the time he was 2 weeks old)

-he is sleeping great (about 4-41/2 hours at night...woohoo!)

it still amazes me how fast they grow! here is a sweet picture I snapped of my baby Charlie tonight...


almost 19 months and we are still working on the art of feeding ourselves:)

This past weekend was SO busy that it has taken me until today to recover from it:) We were going nonstop from Thursday morning until Sunday night! We had a great time but I think we were all pretty worn out by bedtime on Sunday. Above are some pictures from the weekend!

Happy 4th!

brotherly love

We were on the go all weekend, but had SO much fun:) We had dinner with the Stovers Friday night and the rest of the weekend included being outside all the time, swimming, golfing, church and a wedding reception! Here are a few of my fav pictures from the weekend...

Me and my Babies

Old Dog, New Dog

Caden's lovey is a sweet little puppy that he got when he was born. I have posted on here before about the agony of trying to find the exact same puppy for him and no luck...until this weekend:) My girlfriend Sherri was going through some of her boys' old baby stuff and lo and behold a PUPPY!!!! Exactly like Caden's--with the tags still on it! I could not believe now we have two puppies. I took a picture of the two side by may be hard to tell from pictures how different they look (or how really gross, well "well-loved") the original is!
