The Hat

How gorgeous is Gus. And how awesome is this hat. And the photo...Thanks to Kelly for taking the picture, Susie for making the hat, and well, thanks to Tom for helping to make such a gorgeous baby....

Jack had a 35 minute breakdown/timeout....but he pooped in the potty (unrelated items)!

For What I am Grateful...

Today was kind of a rough day, so instead of griping about it, I am going to write some things that I am grateful for:

1. My children, without them I would have to find a job during this tough economic time.
2. Nap-time, without it I would not be able to practice saying "BE QUIET" in 12 different languages.
3. Millie, because without her, Porter would not have learned to say, "NO".
4. Sunscreen. My boys are protected, for the short time that I can control them, from doing the same thing to their skin that I have done to mine.
5. Giving birth without drugs. Had I had an epidural I wouldn't know what serious pain is all about.
6. Birds. They wake me every morning at 4:30. Awesome. Thank you birds.
7. The last three pregnancy pounds that I have to lose. Without them I wouldn't have a weight-loss goal.
8. Facebook. Because of you, I haven't read a serious book in a year. (Twilight excluded.)
9. The Subaru, if we didn't have it we wouldn't have anything to spend our money on.
10. HGTV for helping me realize that there are so many things I would like to do to our house.

Of course, I am grateful for so many things and so glad my family is healthy and happy. Daily I have been reminded of how lucky I am, but some days just suck and that is okay.

Photos of Gus

Here is a sneak peak of Guster at his newborn picture session. I had a great time with my new friend (hope it's okay that I call her that!) Kelly Smith. She is so great with newborns! We had fun, even though Gus pooped all over her stuff and my favorite jeans! Photos of Gus. It is going to be so hard to decide which photos to get.

Things are going well. Tom's home this week and I don't want him to go back to work! We're having a great time with the boys. AND, last night Gus slept for 5 hours straight! We can't figure out if this is going to change or if he is just a laid-back mellow baby. But, we are not complaining!!!

The boys are adjusting really well. Porter has been amazing! He has really stepped up this week and has been helpful and just becoming such a big boy! And Jack just wants to keep touching him!
