O Christmas Tree

Here's a sampling of an average night...
Our silly girl
Our sweet boy
Starting a project (the tree) and that's all. We got it up and ran out of time and energy to complete it.
So guess trimming the tree and decorating the house will be a week long process :)
Such is the life with 2 babies  :)

Ok so I planted way too many plants this spring and then didn't tend to them............
A hot summer + a very preggo mamma + a toddler + little more sore this time around in every way = a FAILED garden.....
Regardless we did get some produce and last week I just rounded up some last herbs that were still growing and saw this recipe in Good Housekeeping. I ran out of time so I threw the potatoes into the kitchenaid mixer and made them mashed and tweaked them with the herbs I had. Hadn't done that before and it was fun - adding the herbs and Parmesan meant they didn't need butter, that's always good eh? :)

Noah - 2 months

Little man isn't so little anymore! He's 11lbs 6.5oz - 37%, 58% for height and 18% for head! :)
He also had an attached tongue and got that clipped last week, poor guy :(  He is doing better with eating now though - not slurping so much and not taking in as much air that was making him cry & be so burpy.

He has been SO smiley and talkative lately, it's precious! Here are some photos of our 2 month old!
