New Beginnings

Summer is officially over at our house. Alyssa finished up the summer by going on vacation with my parents to Ruidoso for a family reunion. She had a lot of fun with her cousins and got to ride a horse. She spent most of the time outside picking up pine cones and enjoying the nature.

She came back and started school. She is now in the 2nd grade and is super excited. She loves her new teacher and was excited to see all of her friends.

Caleb also started daycare last week. It was harder on mom than it was on him. He seems to be doing well there. He went in for his 2 month check up and now weighs 10 1/2 pounds and is 23 1/2 inches long! What a growing boy. He is hungry all the time (up to 6 ounces and is still hungry every 2 1/2 to 3 hours!!!) so we are now adding a bit of rice cereal to his bottles. He is sleeping much better at night and has almost mastered sleeping through the night. Won't that be exciting when he does!

Here are a few pictures from his 2 month birthday...

Stephen and I are adjusting to life with 2 children rather than just one. It is so hard right now trying to balance our time between them both. It is definitly much harder to have 2 children than just 1! Hopefully we won't fail to miserably and we will end up with 2 happy, healthy, and well adjusted children!
