Thought I would check in. We have been soooo busy busy busy! Alyssa has started ballet again on Saturday mornings and has also decided to play flag football again this year. Yes, Football! If you know my daughter you would not be surprised at all..and if you know her you would also know she thinks she is the best football player in the world! Pictures to come! School is going well and Alyssa LOVES her teacher this year (which is a blessing since she isn't that fond of learning).

Caleb is doing great. He went to see the cardiologist yesterday for his heart murmurs, and now weighs 13 pounds!!! He has gained 3 pounds in 4 weeks!! He is a great eater, like his momma and daddy! Heart is good too, by the way. He is adjusting to day care and sleeping better at night. Mom and dad are sleeping better to which means we are all happier. :)He is holding his head up really well and has discovered it is okay to lay on his play mat on the floor. It is amazing to watch him discover and examine new things.

I keep waiting for life to get back to normal, but I am realizing this may be our normal and that's okay. I wouldn't change it for anyhting in the world. Love my 2 beautiful children and my wonderful husband. I promise to post some new pictures soon!

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!
