Reading:  The Hunger Games.  I still haven't seen the movie because I always like the books better (i.e. Twilight).  I started it right before C was born, but feel like I never have time to read.  Staying off the internet will probably free up some time.  Easier said than done for me.

Watching:  Ugh, T.V. is in between seasons right now.  We just finished all of our shows like House, Glee, Modern Family, and The Office. We had a months subscription to Netflix so we watched a few new shows like Weeds and Breaking Bad.  None of these are on right now!  I'm ready for my summer shows.  True Blood starts Sunday (CAN. NOT. WAIT) and both Weeds and Breaking Bad will be back on in July.  Also, I'm very patiently waiting on Sons Of Anarchy. 

Anticipating:  A starting to walk.  I think he's just going to take off any second.  Am I ready for this?  Will I be able to chase a toddler with a newborn in my arms?  I guess we'll find out.

Laughing about:  A-man.  Every single day is something new with him.  He's making new noises, trying to talk, standing up, the list goes on.  He's so stinkin' cute and makes the day brighter.  Oh, and C when he's milk drunk.  I love when his eyes flutter and he gets a giant smile. 

Listening to:  Shuffle on Pandora and my friend Christian.  She posted this video this morning and everyone is in love.  I've listened to it a few times and her voice is amazing.

Eating:  I actually just had breakfast.  Soft boiled eggs with spinach and cheese.  Breastfeeding moms need the nutritional calories.  I'm really craving my dad's monkey bread though. 

Working on:  Reorganizing our living room.  The kids need more room and now that A can get in everything, we're making him a huge space that's his.  This project has been going on for 3 days now, haha.  We aren't the best at tackling a big project all at one time.

Wishing:  That all food was good for you.  I love food and I wish I could eat whatever I want, whenever I want.

[Introducing baby2 ... Mr. C]

[A playing with kettlebells]

Just a small update for y'all :)

We welcomed baby2, another BOY, at 5:25am on May 24th.  He was a healthy 9lbs and 21 inches long.  Our family loves him so much and can't imagine life without him.  We never post names on here, so he's "C".  The birth was amazing.  I was in active labor for about 4 hours, got in the birthing tub and he was born 16 minutes later.  We did everything at home again and wouldn't change anything about it.  Maybe I'll actually write out birth stories sometime this summer.  We shall see ...

A-man has grown like crazy in the last few months (if you can't tell by the pictures).  He has 5 teeth with 2 more coming in any day.  The boy is a crawling monster and in just the last few days has started pulling himself up on EVERYTHING.  He'll be walking before we know it and I'm not quite sure we're ready for it.  He has decided that he absolutely loves his baby brother and spends a few minutes each day checking him out.  It's so cute to watch him point to brother's nose, ears, and pet his hair.  I love my boys.

Mom and dad are adjusting rather well to all the new changes.  Our babies are our number one priority and they consume every minute of our day.  I'm loving being on maternity leave and getting to spend every waking moment with all of them. 

Hope everything is well in all of your worlds.  I might be around the blogosphere a little more this summer while I'm off work, but can't make any promises.  We're a busy family!

We're too busy making memories ...

So I'm a terrible blogger, but ya know what ... life is just more important than sitting down to type into the interwebs.  I love all of you readers, but I love my boys more.  I do have some updated pictures for you though!

Our boy is almost 11 months old and baby #2 will be here in about 6-8 weeks. Needless to say, we are super busy and life is so much fun. I'll try and update more, but honestly, I can't make any promises :)

natural progression

Find new object, inspect.

Bang it on another object.

Put in mouth.

This is what A does with EVERYTHING.

Kristin over at Project Baby  posted this video via The Daily What.  SO HELPFUL!

There's also this one done by Christopher Straub for my amazing company.

Ahh, I love scarves.  I can't wait to try different styles.  Every time I do, customers always ask about them.
