Our Latest Happenings

I'm going to take a moment to catch you all up on what's been going on with me,
since mom seems to have her hands full chasing around my big brother.
I'm 5 months old now and trying my darndest to talk and scoot around.

These pics are from November, this is around the time I discovered my feet!
I absolutely love my feet and how they just seem to be the perfect size for fitting into my mouth:) Mom and dad always cringe when I do though, they think I have sweaty which I think adds such a great flavor!
In this house, no matter where I'm at, I'm always sure to keep
an eye out for my big brother. He can come out of nowhere!
At almost 4 months old, mom caved and gave me cereal
Back then it was the store brand. Now mommy has
fun making my food here at home with the magic bullet
Lane and I bought her for Christmas.
I'm loving my bananas and butternut squash!VROOOOOOOOM!!!! Lane really wanted no part in me hitching a ride.
He let me stay long enough just for mommy to snap a few shots.
My big brother is going to have to learn to share or one
of these days I'm gonna kick his you know what!Hello...
You still here? Well good, because I've got a few
more things to show ya!!Mom and Dad took us Christmas tree hunting with some friends.
We got a kick outta Lane looking like Ralphie's little brother from
A Christmas Story. He got the hang of it after falling over a few times...hehehe
I guess I shouldn't laugh just yet, being that I have yet to stand on my own two feet.After the big hunt, we went back to our girlfriends place to warm up.
It's great being a baby...look at the size of my chair compared to my bros
But regardless, they drug them everywhere that day.

And Lastly, since mom has yet to download Christmas pics, is our lovely Santa photo.
Get a load of this guy...Santa? Imposter more like it!
At least we are looking at the kids standing in line.
This IMPOSTER is checking out the clock...
I may be a baby and all, but he ain't fooln' me
We still told him our list of requests and I gotta hand it to him,
because he was able to relay our list of demands to the REAL Santa:)
Okay, that's all the time I have.
It's time to eat, poop and sleep again:)
Love you all!

Brother Bath Time

We finally accomplished the FIRST BATH (at 7 weeks old!!!)
If he were going to school, Blake may have been the "Stinky Kid"
LOL....very different with numero dos:)

Big Brother splashes a bit too much to share a bath just yet, but he loves his little B!
Current Stats and Haps
*Lane will be 2 in a little over a month.
*He's talking up a storm and amazing us with his vocab everday
*Just a tad shy of being able to ride the ferris wheel inside Scheels! He looks like a 3 year old!!!
*Blake is going on 10 weeks old this week
*At 2 month check up measured a ridiculous 25.5 inches long and 12.8 lbs.
*Already into 6 month clothes
*Smiling like crazy and wanting so badly to talk

It's true. I am now officially out numbered in my own home...even the dog is male (I think we need a new dog...LOL)
Baby Blake arrived as scheduled July 21st, at 9:06 in the morning. Weighing in at 8.1lbs. and 21 inches long. The C-Section was textbook and the healing process is going fantastic. Have had plenty of help from the hubby and grandparents, which makes my life a piece of cake...I feel useless and hate it to be honest. Lane LOVES his little bro! He can't give him enough hugs and kisses. He always enters the room saying "Blake. Baby Blake. Brother...Kisses" It's too cute. Looking down at Blake for the first time, we could all swear he and Lane are twins, just separated 20+ months:) The only difference is Blake's hair isn't as crazy as Lane's was (and still is) and is a tad bit darker. Blake also had a cute little quirk to one of his ears. They are both too stink'n cute! Okay...on to the good stuff and what you're all waiting for!
Let's do this!

Mommy's feeling great!

It's a BOY!

Where has the time gone...?

This update is long overdue (I can just picture you all nodding your heads in agreement). Lane is growing at an alarming rate and doing great. We've recently been trying to transition him into his Big Boy Bed, which he loves...and loves to get out of just as much. I would say we average a once a week sleep in the BB Bed. His vocabulary is ridiculous. His most recent favorite words are delicious and gorgeous. And he's counting to three easily and sometimes 5 when he feels like showing off:)
Cashew will be arriving in a very short 2 weeks (Lane was Peanut...this unknown gender baby is known as Cashew). All is going well, just exhausted. Found out that my platelet count is low, so had to run another test to be sure. If continues to stay on the low side, it will affect how they administer my anesthesia during my fun.
Okay. Enough of the gab onto what you really came to see....THE PICTURES!!!

Just a little FYI to be sure and scroll down past the following post
and catch a glimpse of Lane's Birthday Bash!
Love y'all and hope you're well.

What??? My Birthday's Over?!?!?

I just couldn't stop the partying when I woke
the morning after my big celebration.
Watching the wildlife outside and admiring the last
moments of my decorations.

Gotta love balloons...and static electricity!

Had to share the photo of mamma trying on one of my outfits.
She just couldn't resist it was so cool. She's gotta another
thing coming if she thinks I'm going to let her borrow it!

My Halloween Monkey Business

Mommy was the Zoo Keeper. How fitting is that!I was tuckered out before the first house!Finally home and ready for dinner and bedtime! Hope you all enjoyed your Halloween! I sure did!!!
Love, Lane
Oh yeah...I even learned what a monkey says in time for my trick-or-treating!
