Mason has really been getting into arts and crafts projects. I decided to host a Thanksgiving craft for my MOMS club. I found a turkey craft on-line that seemed do-able for a 2 year old even though the suggested age was 4+. We did a practice one the day before and Mason LOVED it. The day of the craft he made another one and even held his hand out nicely to be painted. I'm sure he would have made turkey's all day if I had let him!

Ryder: 2 Months

I swear time is going faster this time around. My little guy is now 2 months. We had his check-up yesterday. He's doing everything right on schedule and getting so big!

weight: 13 lbs 6 oz - 75th percentile
height: 25.5 inches - 97th percentile
head: 25th percentile

Last week he even rolled over a few times from belly to back. He was a show off for his pediatrician and showed her mommy wasn't lying!

sick boy

It's not often that Mason gets sick but this past week he had a cold and a double ear infection on top of it! Our early riser is usually up at 6am and ready to party. This morning he woke up at 4 so we brought him into bed with us and he slept until 8:30!

and just because he was sick he got a special breakfast. Jelly sandwich with pretzel sticks and fruit snacks. We call it 'campfire'

Chris and his boys

Chris isn't very photogenic but he'll humor me every once in a while.

tummy time

Such a strong boy for 8 weeks!


Ryder gave me his first smiles 2 weeks ago when he was just over 6 weeks.

This boy can not get enough of being outdoors!

baby wearing

Wearing Ryder is the only way I can get anything done. He LOVES his Moby wrap and although there's a bit of a learning curve to get it on I highly recommend it! Once I watched a few you-tube videos I was good to go.

baby platdate

A very good friend of mine since Middle School just moved back to the area with her 3 month old. I'm so excited that our babies can be friends.

Liam tests out the bumbo

who are you?

all bundled

It's getting cold out! Although I believe today is going to be in the 60's - that is not the norm for mid November.


It sure is hard getting a good picture of the 2 boys. Mason loves to have his picture taken with Ryder but he's usually trying to bear hug him, pick him up, or just climb all over him.

trick or treat

Mason had his first time really trick or treating. We went to a few houses in the neighborhood. A lot of our neighbors bought things just for Mason hoping he'd come around. He got some fruit snacks, pretzels and even a couple books!
