Life as we know it.

I really need to be better at staying up to date with my blog posts.
Because we keep ending up with these all-over-the-place update posts.
I guess that's how life as a mama of two goes sometimes.
Better luck next time!

Phillip is two months (and one week) old! ahh.
two month check up went something like this:
11lb 9oz (50%), 23" (50%)*
healthy babe.



*side note: jack jack was 14lb 15oz at his two month check-up! - more than 3lb heavier than Phillip!
holy moly, i don't think i realized really just how HUGE he was since he was my first (even though I knew he was 98th percentile ha)

 Jack usually wants in/out/in/out of the stroller so when we went shopping last week I thought I'd just bring the single and let Jack walk.
Um nope. He wanted to be in the stroller.
So we turned it into a double stroller by sitting Jack on the edge of the car seat between Phillip's legs haha!
Poor Phillip.

 Pretty sure I'm the nicest mom ever since I bought Jack a piece of chocolate from the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory while I was on a no sweets fast. I sat there and watched him enjoy every last bite. Pretty sure I salivated the whole time.

A trip to the library these days apparently means playing on the computer?
He was SO EXCITED when he saw the computer.
Before this he had never even played on a computer before!
I guess he has seen his cousins playing enough to figure out that the computer must be a toy.
*sigh*

we went to a kings game with t's work team.
jack jack was SO into it!

 I really don't know why T looks so somber because I'm pretty sure he was enjoying the game too.
Maybe because we got our butts kicked.

Are you ready for the saddest story of our lives?
Mr. Bunny got run over!

So we were at my parents' house and my dad comes into the house laughing so hard.
"marci, you have to come outside and see this!"
so I come out and BAM, Mr. Bunny under the tire!
hahahaha.
Apparently Jack dropped him when he went running for the ping pong paddle/balls in the garage and then my dad ran over him when he pulled in a little while later.
Poor Mr. Bunny!

Tire tread marks and all.
This poor little guy has been put through a lot.

We found out last week that this sweet pup has cancer.
I'm really not nearly as sad as I would have been in high school.
Probably because I almost never see her anymore.
But it's still sad for the poor pup and her best pup friend!
She'll be put down once she's in pain often enough that she has no good quality of life.

Remember how Jack suddenly loves electronics?
Yeah, he was pretty excited about watching his cousins play the gameboy.
[is that a gameboy? i really have no idea]

 Poor Carter probably could barely see his screen since Jack's face was buried in it haha!

Second reason why I'm the nicest mom ever:
Yeah, I built that.
Jack didn't seem nearly as appreciative as would have been appropriate.
That took me a long time!
He played with it for a total of .02 seconds.

Who is this baby?
Surely not mine because he's TOO BIG.
So sad he's not a newborn anymore!

 One-on-one time with this little one does not happen nearly as often as it used to so I treasure the few moments we do get together. We usually read books about cars or play cars or play golf or do anything else that can be easily characterized as "all boy." ha!

I honestly don't know that I've ever seen a FULL rainbow until earlier this week.
How amazing is that?

 Nothing is cuter than a baby post-bath time, amiright?

 Just more proof of the electronics lover he's become.
he actually asked me to play on the computer.
and so it begins.

As I've mentioned before, Phillip gets gas bubbles like every five seconds while nursing.
They are mean.

 But don't let those angry faces fool you.
Two seconds after he finally burps?

He is becoming all smiles lately!
This was a happy face to step out of the shower to this morning:

ohmygoodness.

 PS thanks to grandma & grandpa for the adorable elephant jammies.

 off to fold laundry and enjoy a few moments of peace while both babies nap!
...while watching Parenthood, of course.
