More September

Here are some pictures from the second half of September:

Precious sleeping baby boy!

 

Paxton feel asleep in our bed while I was nursing Weston and I laid Weston down beside his brother and they snuggled close…so precious!

Moments like this make the hard moments so worth it! I love these two precious boys so much!


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.”

Brothers!

With my sweet wee one!

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


Eight Months

Now that Weston’s almost 9 months old, I’m finally sharing his 8 month pictures! {This blog is super neglected!}

Weston is turning into a toddler more and more everyday and it’s so much fun to watch! I’m loving watching his personality emerge!

Milestones from seven to eight months:

  • Has 2 teeth – the bottom two!
  • Crawling.
  • Pulling up.

  • Loves eating! He’s still eating homemade baby foods like carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, etc.
  • Nursing every 3-4 hours during the day.
  • Still only napping in the car or in my arms.

  • Very interested in big brothers toys.
  • In the largest setting in his bumGenius diapers.
  • Still in 6-9 month clothes and wearing some 12 months things regularly.
  • Still a high needs baby but is such a joy who is teaching me how important daily reliance on God is in parenting!

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!


Seven Months

Weston was 7 months on July 22. Here are his milestones from six to seven months:

  • Very first tooth. It popped through on his 7 month birthday.
  • Army crawling – he’s able to move where he wants to.
  • Sitting up! He officially started sitting on the 15th!
  • Looking like a big boy. His hair is growing and with his sitting abilities, he looks so big!

  • Loves eating. He eats about 1/4 cup of food at lunch and supper. So far he’s had sweet potatoes, carrots, green beans, peas, squash, zucchini, apples and pears.
  • Still nursing every 3 to 4 hours.
  • Sleeping through the night but refuses to nap during the day unless he’s in the car.
  • I finally found an accurate description of him – a high needs baby. He always wants to be held and never wants to be alone.

  • Loves playing with his big brothers toys, especially his drum sticks and guitar.
  • We lowered his crib. John David stood him up in it and said we’re going to need to lower this soon. He then laid Weston down, left the room and I turned around to see Weston trying to pull up. The crib was lowered that night!
  • Still in the largest setting in his bumGenius diapers.
  • Still wearing 6-12 month shirts/one pieces and 12 to 24 month bottoms.
