This week

So here are some of the things we've been up to this week...
We taught Smith the importance of watching Minnie Mouse on TV

Daddy took Kensington to the park to play...they didn't mean to dress alike

This is what Daddy and Smith thought of Obama's State of the Union address


We still eat our breakfast together on the floor...please excuse my red robe which keeps showing up in pictures. My mom bought this for me from Victoria's Secret when I was 19...and I still wear it EVERY DAY! Money well spent Mom.


We have a new obsession with Mommy's study and her desk...this child can run off and be up on my chair banging away at my keyboard within seconds.


We're still lovin' those blue eyes!


Kensington finally asked if she could hold Smith. This is the first picture...she looks really nervous.


Now she seems more confident


Patting his head

We've been working on Kensington's manners since before Christmas. She has mastered the word "please" and knows that when she says it, she can basically have whatever she wants because who can resist a child that says please??? I frequently hear "Cheeto please", "outside please", "Minnie please"...in this video, I took away her juice just so you could hear her ask for it back...I'm so mean :)

Let's compare...

From the first time I laid eyes on Smith, I thought he looked like his big sister...not exactly like her...but I think they really resemble one another. Then the other day, he was lying in my lap and I really saw the similarities. What do you think?
Kensington at 3 weeks


Smith at one week (sorry about the photo quality, I only had my camera phone within arms reach)

Redefining normal

Today, we started redefining normal at our house. We had such a wonderfully busy and very blessed week last week but it was exhausting. It was so nice to send Andrew back to work and have my house to myself...and my two kiddos...and yes, my dog.
One week old today...it's hard to believe he's small enough to be cuddling a diaper cloth...that's going to change so fast!



My big girl eating an Eggo and banana for breakfast


I always sort and fold laundry on my bed...today, we had a new "pile"...a boy pile! Look at the blue!


Kensington is taking care of her baby today too


In his swing


We've been saving the Little People Barn that my parents bought Kensington for Christmas for today...I knew she would like a new toy to kick off our new routine. She LOVED it! That's the beauty of kids not remembering what they get for Christmas.


While in the toy room, I noticed this was the time...


Which reminded me of this picture the nurse snapped last week...my baby boy is officially one week old!




The three of us busted out our new ride and went for a walk


Smith enjoying the walk


Little Miss enjoying the new ride...she climbed right in...she really loved being up front




I'm going to love my new normal!!!

Friends and Family

This weekend, we were truly blessed with lots of visits from family and friends!!



Sheaffer and Carter stopped by with a yummy Mexican casserole and delicious brownies...they were so good!

Then, we met Lovie, Papa Jay and Uncle Sean for lunch followed by shopping at Babies R Us


Smith's first visit to a restaurant


Uncle Seanie trying to steal goldfish crackers

Mickey Mouse is outside of Babies R Us, so of course we had to visit


Then, Grandmother and Papaw came to visit




Followed by Casey and Brandon




And then Bryan and Pam



On Sunday, Kara, Tim and Landry stopped by




This is what he wore to church for the first time. He looked so cute!!!

At home...

There really is no place like home...
Lovie and her grandbabies

Smith enjoying the sun...he needed a little light since he was slightly jaundice




First time in the swing

Now she's pointing out his nose


Very interested in the bottle




Ohhhh...it feels good to stretch after being crammed in mommy's tummy
