Pops and Gigi visit during Spring Break

Pops and Gigi came for a quick visit during Gigi’s Spring Break.  Unfortunately her Spring Break was a week before our Spring Break but we still got to spend some good quality time together!

Here is a picture of Cash sleeping on Pops.  As I have mentioned several times before, Pops is the “Baby Whisperer” in our family and can get ANY baby to sleep in a matter of minutes. :) I have pictures of Emma and Foster at about this same age asleep on Pops too!

He’s in his crib!

Around 10 weeks I started putting Cash in his crib during the day for naps.  He LOVES to be swaddled tightly.  So our current routine is that I swaddle him tightly, lay him in his crib, and turn his mobile on.  He loves watching his mobile!

I always offer him a pacifier but he is not a huge fan of the paci!  This is very new for me because Foster and Emma were addicted to their pacis!

Snow time after school!

Foster was SO excited for Emma to get home from school so that they could play in the snow together.  I had Emma’s “snow clothes” all laid out so she could come inside and change her clothes after getting off of the bus… However, she ran home from the bus, threw her backpack in the door, and immediately went to playing in the snow in her school clothes.  There was NO time to waste changing clothes!  Her hat is on backwards by the way!

I’m so glad that kids got experience at least one real snow this year!

Snow time in the morning…

On February 20th we finally got some real snow!  Unfortuantely, Emma still had school but she got to play in it when she got home from school!

The snow really started coming down mid-morning and the boys and me watched it out Cash’s window.  It was SO beautiful!

Here is Cash watching the snow…

Emma’s Valentine Party at School

Emma’s Kindergarten Valentine Party was on Wednesday, February 13th in the morning.  Looking back, I think I may have been slightly insane trying to go to the party with a 3 year old and an infant!  I survived though!

Emma was SO excited to have us at the party.  There were several stations set up around with Valentine’s crafts and game.  Foster, Cash and I travled with her from station to station to watch her.

Here are some pictures of Foster standing by Emma’s “Curry” snowman on the wall outside her classroom before the party started.

Cash was a good baby during the party, he just hung out in his carseat in a corner. :)

Sweet siblings.  Foster puts his hands in his mouth when he is nervous- we are working on this!

2 months old

Cash is 2 months old!  In some ways it seems as though the time has just flown by, but in other ways it seems like he’s been in our family forever!

Just a little bit before Cash turned 2 months old he started becoming really smiley which has been so fun.  He continues to be a prety big boy!  I put him in the same outfit for his 2 month pictures as he had on in his 1 month pictures and you can tell it is slightly tight in the “belly” area!

Cash had some very rough, fussy moments from around 3 weeks-around 8 weeks.  One moment he was very happy, and the next moment he was very fussy.  I’m blaming it on reflux.  However, at 8 weeks he really turned a corner and has become a mostly happy, content baby.  Right around 2 months he also started to sleep much better!  He takes a good nap in the morning and afternoon and has started consistently sleeping a good 6-8 hour stretch at night.  This Momma is very happy about that!

We love you little Cash!


***So, I’m about 6 weeks behind on blogging and it’s driving me nuts.  I know, I know, such a “first world” problem.  In the grand scheme of life, being behind on blogging is not a big deal and should not be a priority!  Moving on…***


One morning before Robin left for work I noticed that he and Cash’s outfits were matching.  So I decided to take a few pictures…

I must say that Robin truly is a Super MAN…. he’s the best Daddy and Husband for our family that I ever could have asked for.  He is a super hands-on Dad.  Our kids adore him and he truly is their super hero!

I pray ever day that Cash and Foster will both grow up to be SuperMEN as well.
