Jonathan David and Goliath... I mean... Roran

Okay, so he's not Goliath, but my nephew seems huge to me! He was born less than a week ago and is as long as my three month old. It's crazy! He's very cute though. Aaron was very intrigued with him too, and he seems to understand the whole new baby thing. I didn't think 2 year olds were supposed to be that smart??!
Anyways, here are a few photos from last night when Darrell and Amanda brought the boys over.
Here's one of Jonathan David and Roran Edward
And the cutie by himself...

I put my blog on Facebook!!

So, I figured out today that I could link my blog to Facebook so now everytime I put a new post on my blog it will post it as a note on my facebook! How awesome is that??!!

Smiley Boy

I haven't gotten December up yet, but I figured that if I didn't start posting again that I may never get around to it. I actually have a few minutes cause the boys are sleeping and I am getting over the flu so housework is not on my agenda. Aaron has had the flu or whatever sickness it is since Thursday... we have cleaned up so much vomit it's not even funny! Thankfully we borrowed Cindi's carpet cleaner. It has made cleaning it up so much easier!

On a lighter note, I thought I would put up some recent pictures for everyone to see. Here is my chunky baby boy! When I took him to the doctor on the 5th, he weighed 11lbs. 4oz. and was 21 1/2 inches long. I love his little rolls!

He is such a smiley baby. He smiles at everything! He especially loves to see his big brother Aaron.

Aaron's favorite thing to play with right now is his Mr. Potato Heads, and Jonathan loves it too. He really enjoys looking at them. We show him everytime we finish one. It's so much fun to play with them as a family!!

Well... It has been a while since I posted. It got pretty crazy around here during the holidays. So, here's what's been going on...
We got family pictures taken... the highlight of the month! Jonathan was 3 weeks old, and I felt like he had already gotten so big. Thank you Kristy for our awesome pictures!!! We LOVE them!! If anyone wants to see them, there are a few of Jonathan on Kristy's website in the babies section, Kristy Hanlon Photography.

Aaron discovered that he could get into the cradle and into Jonathan's carseat, so it was quite interresting trying to keep him from climbing in on top of Jonathan. He has stopped now though thank goodness!On November 17th, we celebrated my 26th birthday. I actually really enjoyed my birthday because I got to spend all day with my boys. This is a picture that I took of Jonathan in a little basket that I got for my birthday, I had fun taking this picture. I was so excited that he was small enough to fit in it. Silly I know, but I loved it!
We celebrated Jonathan's first Thanksgiving with Dan's family, and then after dinner, Aaron and I went down for a nap and Jonathan spent the afternoon laying in his Daddy's arms while he played video games.
At one month old, we were able to start cloth diapers with Jonathan. We have had Aaron in them all the time since the beginning of September. It's amazing to me to see the diapers pile up during the day! Between the two boys, we go through about 15-20 diapers a day, sometimes more!! I currently wash diapers everyday, but it's worth it! Aaron hasn't broken out with any rashes since we started cloth and Jonathan hasn't peed all over the place since we started them. When we switched to cloth, we did it while the diapers were still too big for Jonathan, but he would cry everytime he had to pee in the disposables and then he would pee all over the place everytime I took his diaper off. I am very happy to say that he hasn't done that even once since we switched. The Saturday after Thanksgiving, we went shopping for our Christmas tree. We always go to Lowe's because they have beautiful trees and we only pay $15 for them. Aaron had a blast helping to pick out the tree, and his favorite part was the pinecone he found while we were looking. He held it the entire way home. That night, we decorated our tree and I took a picture of the boys underneath it.
And Daddy decorated Aaron... So fun!This was my favorite picture that I took of them though. I snapped it first thing in the morning the next morning. They were both in very good moods. (hard to get these days)
And on the last day of November, Aaron got to go outside with his Daddy and build his first snowman. They had so much fun, and Aaron was very proud of his snowman. I love how creative the boys can be together. (The arms are the branches Dan cut off the bottom of our tree, and somehow under all that snow, they found enough rocks for his eyes and mouth)
