Two Weeks...

Here are some new pictures of baby Talon.  He is still pretty perfect (if I do say so myself). ;)  

We went to Dr. Laubenthaul last Thursday for his two week check-up.  He weighed 7 lbs 10 oz and measured 21 inches long.  (He was 7 lbs 7 oz, 18.5" at birth...I'm thinking he was measured wrong in the hospital?  Unless he is super-baby and grew 3 inches in 13 days)  Of course there is not much else to report...Cameron and Tucker can't wait for him to "do something."  I, on the other hand, wish he would stay this sweet forever...well maybe not forever if I have to get up all night to feed him. 

Camo Cuties

Just had to share this picture.  I'm pretty sure that neither one of these boys would appreciate me calling them "cuties," but I couldn't think of a better word, so too bad!  Tucker and Daddy went hunting yesterday (today is actually the last day of deer season, if you didn't already know ;)).  Tucker loves spending time with his Daddy and I think Daddy loves his time with Tucker just as much.

New Baby and His Nursery

We are still on cloud nine around here since bringing home our newest miracle.  So far he is a really good baby.  Over the past day or so he has become more alert, so we will see if he continues to be such a good sleeper!  Big Brother likes him most of the time.  He made the comment yesterday that he thinks we should give Baby Talon to his cousins, but other than that he is loving being the Big Brother.

Here are some pictures of the nursery.  It turned out really cute.  I wanted it to feel really fresh and clean and I think I achieved that!  I am still looking for a rug and when we get his pictures back I am going to hang one on the left side of the window, but other than that it's finished...thanks to my mom and sister who helped me the day after we got home from the hospital! 

Thank you so much Jennifer for letting us borrow the cute mobile!  It works just perfect!

Notice the adorable giraffe behind the bed that Joanna made for me!  Love it!
 I am enjoying every minute of my life right now and feeling so undeserving of all my many blessings.  God is so amazing!

It's Baby Time :)

I am having a baby tomorrow.  Crazy.  And I just want to document the fact that my "first born" and I are laying in the bed watching Curious George eating cheese and crackers.  There is so much to do, but I am taking a break to enjoy this last little bit of time with him when it is just us.  I can't wait to meet this new little boy and just can't believe that we will be a family of four this time tomorrow!!

"ice" day

 Of course, as always, what was supposed to be a "Winter Weather Event" of snow and ice turned in to an icy mess.  When we woke up this morning I had two very upset boys in my house.  So we decided to get out of the house and head to the farm to see if they got any more snow than we did since it's a little farther north.  No such luck.  But it was a fun day and we got some fun pictures with the dogs.

I love this picture...he was cracking up because he was throwing "ice balls" at the dogs.

Even though it didn't turn out as we hoped, I enjoyed being at home with my two boys all day.  It won't be just us for long!!  Can't wait until Friday!  I will post pics of the nursery soon.  We're ready!

Shower/Party for Talon

So, I had the cutest most fun shower.  Ever.  It was at a cute little baby boutique in town.  We all picked out appliques, cut them out, ironed them on to the onesie, bib, etc of our choice, and left them there for the seamstress to sew them all up.  It was SO much fun!  Perfect for a second (same gender) baby because you already have most of the things you need, but you still want some cute, personalized new stuff for the new baby!
Totally loved the cupcake cake!  Cupcakes are my favorite and I especially love what it says!  Can't wait to say goodbye to this tummy!

Have you ever seen a cuter diaper cake?!?  I feel so inadequate for all the diaper cakes I have ever made!

Once Mom got started she was pretty serious about the whole thing.

Lauren and Crystal getting busy on their projects.

Great friends...don't know what I would do without them.

So sweet for Johnna and Miss Gia to come all the way here for my shower!

And my sweet Sis wins the award for most miles traveled!  Not to mention she didn't feel good. :(

Each time something major happens in my life I am amazed at how blessed I am with people that go so far out of their way to make sure that my family and I feel special and have everything we need.  I feel so unworthy of all my blessings and I know that I can never thank you all enough for what you've done for me and what you mean to me.  Thank you for every thing you've let me borrow, every gift, every call/text/email to check on me, thank you for loving me when I am so unworthy of your love and friendships!
