It was really nice being in STL this time around and being able to baptize Evan whenever it worked! We have a new parish that we belong to and I love it. The priest who did the baptism was fun and I think it will be a good fit for us, when we go to church :) The boys were SO good, Connor sat on the riser and worked with his dry erase markers and Evan slept until Communion.

Right as we were getting ready to go to Communion I was planning in my head that I would go right back to the cry room so that I could feed and change him. I knew he wouldn't make it through the whole ceremony without eating so I knew it would work. About that time he looked and me and let out a HUGE blowout poop. I mean it was one of those that went up his back, on my dress it was pretty funny. We got him changed and fed and we were on our way!

The proud parents! 

Sweet little guy, he did so well! He didn't make one peep the entire time :) 

With his Godmomma Caitey-Lou!

I love his sweet face in this one, such a good little man!

With his awesome godparents, Caitlin and Patrick! I think they were very excited and they have already been awesome, Evan is a lucky little man!

This one TOTALLY cracks me up, Connor was really good throughout the whole ceremony but he was ready to go home at this point so he is sitting behind us. Funny little stinker! 

Once again G outdid herself with his yummy cake! Not only did it look good, it tasted good too :) 

He was flirting with Grandma Nancy!

Sweet, sweet boy! He did such a good job at his Baptism and it was so nice having the whole family over to celebrate with us! We did pulled pork sandwiches, salad, chips and cake! It was delicious and such a great Sunday afternoon. I know he is going to grow up being a sweet, sweet little man!

Evan is ONE Month!

 How in the world does time go so fast with a little bitty wee one in the house!? I don't know how my sweet baby turned one month old before my eyes! He is the sweetest little baby and I am so incredibly thankful for him. 
I told Bj that I still think we have room in our family for one more, but when I look at Evan I realize that he has been missing from our family for all these years. I just feel so happy and lucky to have him with us. 

Sweet baby smiles are starting this month and I LOVE it! I just don't think there is anything like that sweet, sweet precious innocence! 

You still aren't sleeping much at night, more during the day but that is to be expected. You eat A LOT, I swear you are nursing every two hours. It takes a lot of work to make chucky baby rolls :) 

I love this one, somebody was all finished with the photo shoot :) Connor found the "just born" sticker that I didn't use and wanted me to write 4 on it, I thought that was really sweet that he wanted in on the photo sessions! 

I love these two with all my heart - I can't wait to see what month 2 brings! 


This is a picture heavy one, but I just have so many! I thought I would lump them all into one :)
I just love pictures of a sleeping baby, they are SO stinkin cute! 

Our first walk as 3! You can tell, but Evan was in there in the ergo :) 

Connor loves writing his letters, he has mastered Evan - he even knows how to spell it on his own, I love it!



Sometimes I have a hard time putting him down, I just love snuggling with my sweet, sweet baby boy!

My first smile I caught on camera! 

This time he was sleeping at the park :) 

Sweet big brother!

Telling secrets!

Baby burrito!

Connor practices tummy time with E everyday - he even gives him stickers when he does a good job holding his head up :) 

First time in the shopping cart at Schnucks! I wasn't sure where I was going to put the groceries! :) I am at least thankful these car carts are much easier to maneuver. 

He loves his new name sign!

I couldn't love these two anymore :) 

Cute, cute kiddos and Evan's first trip to the zoo!

Connor's school picture for 2013 - I was pretty happy about it considering I forgot it was picture day :) I still don't know why they like to comb his hair straight down!
Did you know that Jake the pirate lives at my house? He does!
