Silly Sisters

 Sometimes these two drive me absolutely crazy, but most of the time they are silly and fun.  I'm glad that they are such good friends (when they're not fighting)!!

We took some pictures of TJ the other day and they didn't want to be left out.  I am definitely not a great photographer, but I'm happy with the pictures considering I was trying to balance TJ in one arm, get some light through the rain clouds, and not drop the camera!

2 Months

It's a couple weeks late, but here are a few photos of our little guy at 2 months:

At 2 months he:
* is 80 % for weight
*  50% for height
* only waking up once or twice a night (hallelujah!!)
*eating about every 2 hours during the day
* spitting up all the time (bummer!)
* has a somewhat consistent schedule during the day (kind of)
* making lots of fun faces
* likes finding himself in the mirror
* tolerates his sisters quite well

A Little Organizing

We went through all of our stuff (yet again) now that we're going overseas to weed out anything we don't want to hang on to.

Here's a picture of the mayhem:

Hannah having fun while helping us:

Sofia as well:

After an hour or two the girls were no longer as enthusiastic.  They wanted to dress up as I happily got down some dresses.  Then they requested a movie.  I'm a pretty big stickler about avoiding the tv, but I was happy to oblige them so we could finish up sorting/cleaning/organizing.

I forgot to take an after shot, but we have less stuff, and it's more organized!!

The girls are becoming more and more opinionated on their clothes.  Lately, I haven't really cared too much so long as they are wearing clothes.  Here's what their outfits tend to look like.
Hannah tends to go with a theme.  Today's is blue!
Sofia rarely has any reasoning behind her clothes, but this day she did go with stripes.

Love it!!  Let's be honest, did they really have much hope for any sense of style with me as their mom?!  Not a chance!!

Blessing Day

A couple of weeks ago TJ was given a name and blessing at church.   We named him after his Grandpa (Thomas) and his Dad (James).  It was a neat blessing (really, can there be a bad one?) and I just hope that TJ ends up something like either of his grandpas or his father.  Here he is right before church.  He was pretty sleepy, but I knew we would never get any photos after church.
Notice...they match, and I didn't even pick out James' tie for him!!  Way to go hon!

Here he is trying to keep his eyes open.

Sleep finally won, but the girls couldn't resist getting in a picture with him.

My only regret of the day was that I didn't get a photo of him with his dad and both Grandpa's.  Other than that it was a great day!

All Smiles

These are a few of the faces he was making for us this morning!
