Baby Blow Out

I am an over planner and over packer.

My diaper bag always has everything a mom could need or want.

Most of the time these items go unused.

Somehow, I neglected to restock the diaper bag with an extra outfit for baby D.

We went to breakfast as a family. 

The temperature during this time was approximately 10 degrees.

Baby D had a blow out. 


Not a single item of his clothing could be left on his body.


I had to wrap his naked little body in a blanket and put him in his car seat.

Off to Target we went...I bought two sleepers so I would have an extra one in my diaper bag.


This is why I am an over packer.

Do you see what I see?

Baby D is growing and changing so quickly!
He is loving his new Christmas toy.
Suddenly, he is aware of the cool things around him.
We have even noticed him reaching up to touch them.
Mr. Big Stuff!

My handsome boys and little lady in the snow.

(Baby D will have to wait until next year to play with them.)

Miss Ruthie refuses to wear the snow coat I bought her and instead insists on her fancy coat.  Aunt Pretty Princess says she is "just fabulous."

Baby D is 3 months old!


Good heavens this little man is cute!
He is 3 months old today. 
He decided to celebrate by giving a gift to Mommy and Daddy...
He slept from 8pm-8am.
Did I mention he is an amazing baby?
He is a big boy for 3 months old.  He weighs in at well over 16 pounds.  We have been astonished at his rate of growth!
We think maybe he heard a rumor that he is already a big brother so he is trying to get big fast.  I keep telling him to slow down.  He can be a baby too!
We are all smitten with D.  He gets lots of love and kisses through the day.
I am still amazed that God (and his birth momma) chose us to be his family.
We are blessed!

30 Weeks!

My belly is like the Grinch's grew three sizes that day!
I am so thankful for a healthy pregnancy!
Baby E will be here in 9 weeks.
Oh my!
