June 2012

Sweet chubby cheeked baby in one of my favorite outfits!

As I was snapping pictures, he grabbed this toy suitcase pretending it was a camera and said 'Smile Mama!'

Brothers having fun together!

Paxton wanted me to buckle him in Weston's bouncer/rocker!

I love his big, sweet smiles!

My sweet babies!

Another sleep position...this boy sleeps like a crazy man!

Sweet sleeping Paxton.

His very own cup with water!

Drinking from a cup like a big boy! He's learned so much by watching his big brother!

Looking so big with his cup!

He's starting to move...he happily played half under the bed for awhile!

Before we converted Paxton's crib to a toddler bed, we put his mattress on the floor to see how he'd do. We found him like this one night!


Six Months

Sweet Weston was 6 months old on June 22! It’s hard to believe he’s closer to turning one than to the day he was born!

As each month passes, I find myself falling more and more in love with this little guy. I have loved both of my boys at birth but that love just grows and grows as I get to know them better and we form a relationship.

Weston is still one chunky baby…I love his rolls!

Milestones from Five to Six Months:

  • Started solids. I started him about 2 weeks before he was six months old because he was really interested in food. He just seemed to know what to do as far as eating goes but his body wasn’t ready yet. After a few days, I went back to exclusively breastfeeding and started up on foods again once he hit the 6 month mark.
  • Almost sitting up. He leans forward but almost there!
  • Rolling and moving himself all around.
  • Loves to be held. This is both good and bad. I love, love, love that his favorite place to be is in my arms but it makes the days when I’m home with both boys long because he doesn’t want to be put down.
  • Loves nursing. He’d nurse pretty much all day if I’d let him.
  • Not napping! This is another tough trait. I can’t really complain too much since he does sleep through the night but not having a break during the day is difficult. He’s over tired but will not sleep and I’ve tried everything!

  • Adores his brother! They’re really interacting and starting to play together.
  • Getting interested in his brother’s toys. Paxton is not too excited about sharing with brother though!
  • Got into the diapers for the first time. I heard Paxton saying, “No, no Weston!” and turned around to see Weston pulling the diapers off of the bottom of the changing table!
  • Wearing the largest bumGenius setting! He’s a chunky boy!
  • Still wearing a variety of clothing sizes. I’ve finally packed away the last of the 3 month items. Most of his summer rompers are 9 months and I’m hoping they’ll fit throughout the rest of the summer. He’s wearing anywhere from 6-12 month shirts and bodysuits and 12-24 month bottoms! The wonderful thing about him being a second baby is I can ‘shop’ Paxton’s clothes…he wears Paxton’s shorts quite frequently!
  • Loves drinking water out of a cup! I suppose it makes him feel like a big boy since that’s what we all do!
  • Has the best belly laughs!
  • Still chewing on his fingers and everything he can pick up but no evidence of teeth.
  • Loves being worn. My Ergo is wonderful…he does so well in it when we’re out and about and it’s nice to put him in it on those days when I have to get a few things done around the house.


Brothers

We were able to get some precious shots of our boys when we took Weston’s 6 month pictures on June 23rd! This picture is definitely one of my favorites of the boys that we’ve taken so far!


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!


Sweet Baby Weston

These pictures were taken on June 10th when Weston was an ‘only child’ while Paxton spent a week with my parents! We had a fun little photo shoot resulting in adorable photos of a precious little baby boy!

 


Fun, Family and Father’s Day

We spent last weekend visiting my family. We had a fun visit!

Paxton had left the previous Saturday to go home with my parents for a week. He had fun at ‘grandparent camp’!

We arrived Friday evening. We were happy to see our sweet boy…it sure was quiet without him at home! We had a wonderful dinner and played cards with my parents and my sister and her husband.

Saturday morning, we went to Emmy’s 3rd birthday party! We had fun at the party and Paxton had fun playing with Emmy and her new toys!

Pawpaw, Nannie and all the kids! {Paxton, 2; Emmy, 3; Weston, 5 months; Brooklynn, 13 months}

We stayed at Beka’s house for several hours and went out to dinner at a seafood buffet {yum!}

Sunday morning we went to church. After church, we ate lunch and then took some pictures:

My sister and me with my dad on Father’s Day!

John David with our two boys! {The best picture we have…it’s hard taking pictures of babies and toddlers!}

Pawpaw with the boys!

Weston is beyond precious!

With my sweetie!!

Sitting up by himself for the first time without slouching over after 30 seconds!

Our little family!

We spent our afternoon relaxing and then John David and Dad took Paxton fishing!

Mom and Weston watching Paxton fishing!

Paxton fishing out of a boat for the first time! He caught 2 fish but he had the patience of a 2-year-old so he got out long before his Daddy and Pawpaw were finished fishing.

Daddy and Paxton fishing on Father’s Day!

Paxton, Mom, Weston and I all went swimming while Dad and John David fished.
