3/13/11 - 3/26/11

Can you believe it's almost April!?!? It has been a very busy couple of weeks. We have been sick for most of them, although somehow Dastan stayed healthy. I have managed to get pictures everyday and I hope to someday get them into my album, along with journaling. I have collected a few things that I am going to incorporate into my album this year...so maybe when I get caught up with it I will take pictures of everything. Well onto the post...

3/26/11 - As you can see from the picture, I was in serious need of a new hair-do. It was my post-pregnancy present to myself. I LOVE how it turned out.

3/25/11 - The cats got a present today. We put catnip on the top tier and then put Bear up there. He kinda got stuck, but eventually made it down. 3/24/11 - Triston reading to Keegan, such a wonderful sight! 3/23/11 - Keegan always watches Triston play his DS whenever Triston is playing it, hoping to get a chance to play it himself. Sometimes, every once in awhile, very rarely, Triston shares it.
3/22/11 - Keegan making flyer's to put up for Aslan. *It's been a week and a half and she still isn't home.
3/21/11 - Dastan is 1 month today. He weighs 8lbs and is 20 1/2 inches long. He is still a very happy baby and usually only wakes up twice at night.
3/20/11 - Today is our 7 year anniversary and to celebrate we played video games. There wasn't a whole lot else we could do, but it was fun just hanging out as a family.
3/19/11 - Tonight was the "Supermoon." The moon is closer to earth than it has been in 18 years. this made it look 15% larger than normal.
3/18/11 - Aslan ran away today. We looked everywhere for her. On Sunday (the 20th) Ian found her, but she was 60 feet up in a tree, in the middle of the woods. We tried everything we could to get her down and we were out there til it got dark. I went back out there Monday morning and she was gone. Sure hope she is okay and that she comes home...we miss her!
3/17/11 - Happy St. Patrick's Day. Keegan did his own hair....red spikes!
3/16/11 - I have been taking a picture of Dastan everyday (usually more than one) and I absolutely love this one.
3/15/11 - Dastan was "airing out" and the boy's were playing with him. We kept waiting for one of them to get pee'd on but it never happened.
3/14/11 - Keegan watching Kitchen Boss. He loves this show...actually he loves all shows that have to do with food. He could probably watch the Food network all day long.
3/13/11 - This is part of our everyday. I wash probably 16 bottles a day, 8 in the morning and 8 in the evening.

Hope everyone has a great week!

3/6/11 - 3/12/11

3/12/11 - I finally got Dastan's room decorated. I am really happy with how it turned out, and he really likes to look at the pictures.
3/11/11 - Koda is always sleeping under Dastan's bassinet. I think it's his way of protecting him. This just doesn't look comfortable though.
3/10/11 - My little fly catcher. I love this picture.
3/9/11 - Daddy playing with Dastan, he was mimicing what Dastan was doing.
3/8/11 - Triston got 1st place in the pinewood derby. We are so proud of him and he is proud of himself. This was the winning car!
3/7/11 - Keegan was tired of hearing Dastan cry. He kept saying "Can you get him to stop?"
3/6/11 - Triston and Daddy making Triston's pinewood derby car. Triston designed it all by himself.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!

2/27/11 - 3/5/11

3/5/11 - Aslan loves playing in this closet. We have gone through it several times and there is nothing in there that would make her want to play there.
3/4/11 - Keegan wanted me to take some pictures of him and he came up with his own poses. This is just one of many, he is such a ham.

3/3/11 - Dastan can lift his head while on his tummy. Triston was being a really good big brother and talking to him to try and get him to look at him.

3/2/11 - My Grandpa passed away today. It broke my heart but at least I got to tell him he was a Great-Grandpa again. I am very sad that I won't be able to go home for the funeral. I miss you Papa!

3/1/11 - My Grandpa isn't doing well so my mom is leaving early so she can be home with him. She has been sick most of the time she has been here, so she is getting in some good cuddle time with Dastan.

2/28/11 - Such tiny hands with some long fingers!

2/27/11 - Mimi making receiving blankets for Dastan with Bear's help. He's not this helpful when it's just me here, all he's does is sleep.

Hope you have a great week!

Two weeks old

Dastan you are 2 weeks old today and in honor of that I am going to share some things I have learned in your first two weeks of life.

1) You are a very content and happy baby. You only cry when you need something or when you are getting your diaper changed.

2) No matter who is holding you, you turn your head to try and find me when I start to talk. I love that!

3) You eat every three hours like clockwork.

4) You are our little Houdini. You like to escape out of your blankets when you are swaddled and you escape out of your clothes at night.

5) You like to "Start your motorcycle" as Mimi calls it. You kick your right leg like crazy. Maybe that's how you escape from things.

6) You make lot's of cute noises. You grunt, squeal, squeak, snort, toot and whimper. My favorite is when you whimper, it sounds so pathetic.

7) You grin A LOT. Everyone says that babies don't grin or smile for a couple of months. That might be true, but I can talk to you and get you to grin at me. Daddy can too!

8) You will lay in you swing for awhile and sleep, but you don't like your bouncy seat at all (yet)!
9) You love being in the cocoon's Mimi made for you. You sleep in them during the day and they are so warm and cozy.

10) You love it when I give you a lotion bath, but you scream through regular baths.

11) You actually like tummy time and can already lift your head up and move it from side to side while on your tummy.

12) You get very quiet and just listen when your brothers sing lullabies to you.

13) When we are holding you on the couch, you love to look at the pictures on the wall. I'm pretty sure you can't see them yet, but you are always looking in that direction.

14) You only pee while Daddy is changing your diaper. You have hit him more than a few times.

15) When you sneeze you scare yourself.

16) You are absolutely huggable, kissable, lovable, and snugly. We love you so much and are really enjoying getting to know you.

Happy 2 weeks, Dastan!!
