One Month Old

Bubble Time

The other day Alex and I headed outside and played with his new bubble wand that I got from the $1 bin at Target. He loved it. He was having a blast. After deciding that blowing the bubbles wasn't enough excitement, he figured that it would be better to rub the bubbles all over himself. He was so dirty by the time we were done playing that we had to go right inside to the bathtub, but it was a blast!

Birthday Boy turns 3!!!

I can't believe it, but my little boy is 3 years old! A week after Audrey Paige was born, Alex had a birthday and turned 3 years old. He is getting so big. He is definitely in that independent stage, but yet he's always been strong-willed and independent. He loves to run and jump and play outside (or inside for that matter). He is loving his new sister and for the most part does really well with her. He's had his moments, but I can't complain. He has just started to like playing with little cars and trucks as well as Gogos (little plastic creatures). His creativity is growing everyday! I can't believe his attention to detail. He will recognize emblems from cars and other little things like that. He loves to know how things work, which means that I find myself saying, "I'm not sure, ask Daddy!" He is an absolute joy and even though he wears me out everyday, I wouldn't trade him for the world! What a blessing to have him in our lives!

We celebrated at Chuck E. Cheese (easy for me to prepare!)

New Addition...

We are happy to announce the arrival of Audrey "Paige" Thompson, born March 27th, 2010 at 7:05pm. She weighed in at 6lbs12oz and was 19 inches long. She came a few weeks early as she decided to do her own thing and flip around inside. Because of that, we decided to induce labor in order to avoid a c-section should she continue to flip until she came. My labor was longer thing time, but overall it wasn't bad all things considered. She is perfect in every way and we are so excited that she is finally here. She is sleeping pretty well at night which is always a help! We are just busy adjusting to life with 2 kids. Alex seems to like her and is trying to "help out" in any way he can. He also got to spend a few days with Nana and Papa, which he loved!!
