We're Back!!!

Wow...back to work for 2 full weeks and blog posts go by the wayside. :( I should be doing many other things right now, but you all need to see my beautiful kiddos and I need a little break!

Beckett is doing awesome! He loves sitting in the Bumbo seat. He is eating 5 ounces every 2-3 hours during the day and sleeping from between 8 and 9 at night until around 6 in the morning (we LOVE your schedule darling). Beckett is starting to hold on to toys, but doesn't really realize it yet. He does not really like tummy time, but will tolerate it for up to 5 minutes at a time. He loves being at the babysitters house to watch the kids. He is adjusting very well to this change. Beckett is smiling all the time and has even laughed out loud a few times. SO adorable! Beckett is receiving physical therapy once a week. His therapist, Ellen, has been unable to come for the past 3 weeks, but started back up again yesterday. It is great because she is coming to Lori's (babysitter) house each Friday. She is happy with how well he is sitting up and maintaining his head control, but of course would like to see him doing a little better on his belly. We can't make him like it! We are working on it though.

Paisley is of course wild as ever! She loves to sing and dance and would be perfectly happy doing just that all the time. She is obsessed with iCarly. She loves to kiss and hug Beckett and tell him he is so cute, whenever there is an audience. At home, she really doesn't pay much attention to him, unless we tell her not to for some reason. That little stinker! Paisley is adjusting very well to being at Lori's also and seems to be benefiting from the routine. Lori is very structured and we love her for this!! Miss Paisley likes to rule, so having some other kiddos (just 2 others every day, 3 one day) is good for her. 

Lots of pictures. Take a deep breath and hold on tight!

Paisley wanted to help with Beckett's bathtime.

What a snuggler! However, Beckett no longer likes to be held to go to sleep. He wants to lay on his side with his puppy blanket right up close to his face to hold his paci in. He holds on to it tight and is asleep in no time. Here's a picture of his sleeping position when he's in his carseat.

I went to several yard sales with my best friend last weekend and I got Paisley this scooter for $2.00!!! She loves it!
So sweet and cuddly before bedtime. Poor Beckett!

This picture of Paisley some of you may have already saw on Facebook, but I love, love, love it! I am experimenting with in all of my spare time (ha!) and love my creations! Unfortunately none of the other pictures have gotten the picnik treatment yet.

Being silly with Daddy. So much more fun to pick up blocks when Beckett is in the container!

Oh, hi Mom! Gorgeous blue eyes---enough already!

Loves that Bumbo seat!

Beckett says Go Cards! Daddy has season tickets, and we are proud supporters from home. Aunt Ha-U knew he would look oh-so-cute in this onesie! Thanks Holly!
He looks so happy to have Paisley laying on him, huh?!?! Hilarious!

If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands!

I LOVE pajama pictures!

Promise the next post won't take as long to view! I've got to keep this up!

In honor of Spina Bifida Awareness Month, here is my FB profile picture.

I love all of these pictures of my two sweeties, but my favorite is the one of Paisley teaching Beckett "If You're Happy and You Know It". Paisley LOVES to sing and I am so happy she is sharing her talent with her baby brother! Way to go Paisley!!

How stinkin' cute is this?! Love each and every one of those pictures!!! You will be thankful you documented their lives so well one of these days; I already am! Gotta say I'm loving Paisley's head band. She looks so grown up. And Beckett, cute as ever. He was born to be photographed!
