Pumpkin Patch

At the end of September, we went to a neighboring town for some fall fun – an apple orchard and pumpkin patch. We managed to get a few really sweet pictures of the boys in the pumpkins!

Our precious little boys!

September So Far

September started off with excitement…we bought a van! We are now the owners of a 2004 Nissan Quest! I never would have imagined that I would be driving a minivan but I am and I LOVE it! Our van has power sliding doors and power lift gate…luxurious and so nice for a mama with littles!

I captured this bedtime story moment the other night! Poor Weston just wanted to be included!

Our baby boy is turning into a toddler! He’s pulling up and starting to let go, I have a feeling he’ll be walking before he turns 1!

Sweet Weston has mastered crawling!

Looking so big in the highchair!

My boys LOVE to eat! I really think about half of my day is simply spent feeding children or preparing to feed them. Instead of lamenting the ever increasing grocery budget, I’m viewing all the food they consume as an investment into my children {and seriously, there are no better investments than children!}

And another little eater, this one is always saying “I’m hungry.”


With my sweet wee one!

This picture is super blurry but their little faces are so sweet! I love these two boys so much!

August 2012

Now that we’re well into September, I figured it was time to finally share about August!

Life has been crazy lately! The boys keep me busy and I don’t have much time to upload pictures and blog so it rarely gets done. However, I’d much rather meet the needs of my kids and have fun with them instead of writing about the things we do all of the time.

Here’s a glimpse into August in the Boreing household:

This sums up life lately, quite the mess! Paxton was ‘helping’ me unload groceries and the Worcestershire sauce bottle was broken. He cut his hand a little bit but thankfully it was nothing serious. I was so scared for a few minutes when he was covered in sauce and I was trying to see if he had any cuts.

Paxton received some stickers in the mail from his Mimi. I do believe half of them were put on me! I walked around with stickers on my back all day.

Paxton was given a set of kid drums by some friends of ours! He LOVES them and we are so thankful for people who love our children!

Christmas in August for Paxton!

Weston is becoming quite a little explorer! He’s found the diapers.

Weston falls asleep in his high chair after lunch some days…precious!

Paxton and I fingerpainted one night after Weston went to bed. We had so much fun!

Paxton insisted on sleeping in his shoes one night. It was one of “those” nights so I just let him.

Weston is now pulling up in his crib…adorable! I am greeted by this sight almost every morning!

“Stop taking pictures and get me out mama!”

Paxton loves playing with pillows!

Sweet, sweet boy!

Precious Weston.

Two teeth!!

Adorable little boy!

I took the boys outside one day in their matching rompers for a photo shoot. It wasn’t very successful, I didn’t get a single good picture of them together but did manage to get a few cute shots!

They look so much alike to me in this one!

Weston enjoys using the side walk chalk these days!

Our littlest artist!

Sleeping in the high chair…

Somebody colored himself a crayon beard.

Cheesin’ with his beard!

Big boy is standing up!

Weston and daddy napping!

So, that’s a little of what happened in August. 🙂

July 2012

Here’s a quick little wrap up of July 2012:

The boys on July 4th! Nana gave them both adorable outfits that they wore! I love this picture of these two precious boys!

We spent the morning/early afternoon with friends and then had 2 couples over to cook out and swim that evening. We had an extremely tired and cranky Paxton tucked in bed before neighbors were shooting fireworks. We ended up watching the fireworks from the neighbors across the street on our front drive! {A nice low key way to spend the 4th with two little ones!}

We took Weston’s high chair out of the chair when we had company over and the next day Paxton insisted on eating his lunch in the high chair on the floor! Too funny…

Weston’s moving around! Exploring under beds is quite fun for babies!

Paxton loves babywearing too!

A new car seat means a new playhouse/barn/fort/rocket for little boys!

I made a batch of peanut butter play dough one afternoon. We both enjoyed playing and nibbling the play dough!

Paxton loved the play dough!

Weston watched us playing with the play dough!

One Saturday John David took 3 naps! {Why can’t my kids nap that much!?!} He was able to get Paxton to nap with him so it was successful!

We bought Weston some teething biscuits…he likes them!

One messy, messy baby!

At 7 months, Weston is really getting into everything! He is army crawling and is fast! I’m not really ready for 2 mobile kids!

And, this is the funniest sleep position of this month…this was how I found im during a nap!

Memories of June

We love visiting the library. Paxton adores reading…he couldn’t wait to get inside to start this book!

Reading another book!

I purchased a juicer at a yard sale for $5 back in May and boy are we enjoying our fresh juice! Paxton loves fresh, frothy orange juice!!

Paxton loves, loves, loves strawberries! We can hardly make it into the house with the berries after we pick them!

Enjoying fresh strawberries on the front porch!

Our sweet little garden helper and our abundant cucumber harvest…we’ve made tons of pickles!

Sweet snuggles with my precious Weston.

I love being his mama so much!

The very same night I rocked Weston to sleep, Paxton was having a hard time getting to sleep. I put Weston down and rocked my big boy (a rare treat for mama…I savor these snuggle moments wit my Pax!)

We love our Ergo…makes outings with two little ones easy!

Sweet boys!

Paxton and daddy!

Chunky, precious baby!


I kiss him no less than 50 times a day! Those cheeks, that forehead, the chubby hands and feet just beg for kisses!

Paxton enjoys the bouncer/rocker…on this day he asked for me to buckle him!

Cheesing toddler!

I love seeing Paxton’s sleep positions! This one is so sweet!
