August began and I was huge. haha. I do think though that I enjoyed this pregnancy more than my first...except for 1st trimester, of course. I think summer helps!!
(a little out of order)
Calvin's first car-ride to go visit some friends. My girl reading books. Shopping with my sweet mama. My sweet Texan mama freezing in the northern summer evenings.
::Annie meeting Calvin::
::Annie at the wading pool. This summer in our neighborhood was so fun romping around with this lady.::
Calvin, just a few hours old.
Annie, taking a break from the wading pool to "weeee". (swing)
^^Calvin falls asleep so well in the carrier. Even tonight I got him to sleep by walking around with him in the ergo. Annie was so different...always and only wanted to fall asleep nursing. Crazy how different they are. Also, we had to learn quickly how to hold 2 babies and a book! ^^
It was crazy how she suddenly (like overnight) just seemed so BIG. The new baby came and this baby just grew up on us.
A picture from our first big walk out in the neighborhood as a family of 4. We went to get some cheesecake! Also, newborns are suuuuch great snugglers!!! Got to get it while we can!!
So far Calvin has managed to nap pretty well during Annie's naps, which means I have a good 2-3 hours to read, clean, and nap myself. I think it has really made the transition from 1 to 2 babies alot easier.
Annie has been a sweet big sister. It hasn't been without challenges, that is for sure! But she has covered him with her stickers many times already and always joins him for tummy time. She often wants to do whatever he is doing: having milk, getting bum changes, whatever! She gets in on the action!
Calvin had his first bath at 1-week-old. He screamed through the whole thing (and he really isn't the screaming type!) but now he quite enjoys his baths. Tonight he didn't make a peep...just enjoyed it.
We have still managed some play-dates here and there. Annie and RoRo playing at the splash pad at Fisher Park...we are trying to soak up every last bit of summer we can!!!
3 weeks after he was born and I still haven't cooked. We have the dearest friends and neighbors and church ever!!!
I think with the 2nd baby, every time you try something for the first time is pretty terrifying. This picture was from our first trip to the grocery store, just us. I was so nervous but I've found that once I just get out and try, getting around the city with 2 babies is really no big deal. We just move a lot slower...haha.
I think he is just so handsome!!
I finally figured out how to work the bassinet on our phil and teds double stroller and I'm in love!!!! Definitely would highly recommend this stroller. Its so compact, I can fit into any shop...most people don't even know I have a baby hidden away behind the toddler!
I think he has the cutest little profile. And Annie snapped this photo on the right and I thought it was cute...just a cute combination of fabrics from our couch.
Well, that's my collection of pictures from this August. Maybe soon I'll take pictures of something that is not one of my children. This August has been one of my favorite months ever, I think. Its been such a sweet summer that really, as much as I LOVE fall, I'm not ready for summer to end yet.
but I do have 2 pumpkin spice candles ready to go, and I have plans for my first PSL next week...so I think I'm going to be alright!!!
