Great-Grandpa Gilbert

My Great-Grandpa Gilbert passed away
on November 22, 2010. He was such a sweet Grandpa.
Even though he has like a million grandchildren and great-grandchildren,
he always made me feel like I was special when he saw me.
He'd give me one of his sweet smiles and hugs.
These are the only pictures I have of him recently.
It's a bittersweet passing, he's finally reunited with my Great-Grandma
and I'm sure they love being together again.
Love you Grandpa!

I've seen this picture many times,
but just realized it was of my Grandparents on the
day of their wedding. They're so good looking!!

Grandpa's 90th birthday party. I was pregnant with Avery,
his first Great-Great-Grandchild.

Grandpa holding Avery at the hospital,
I love his face in this second picture.

Okay, okay....here's a few pics of the momma....

PRICELESS- I love my girl.

(Poor Jax was so hungry, he's searching
for his food!)

I've been feeling bad that I haven't taken any pictures with my kids
since we were in the hospital. My face has been a little weird looking, but I want pictures with them, so here they are!
Oh, and my face is looking way better then it did 5 weeks ago. Right after I had Jax, I developed Bell's Palsy. It's a temporary paralysis of the face, and it can happen to anyone, I was just one of the lucky ladies that got to experience it after having a baby! So, I was diagnosed with it about a week after Jax's birth. Luckily, things are starting to get back to normal, it's not 100%, but I'm able to lift my eyebrow, move my mouth WAY more than before and I'm not in pain anymore. So we're just hoping that things continue to get better!

Bathing the Babies

We attempted bathing Avery & Jax together....
talk about a workout! Jax kept sliding down
into the water up to his mouth, swallowing water.
But he loved it! FINALLY!
And now Avery begs to take a
''bubble bash'' with "baby Jax" everyday.
I tried it all by myself a few days ago
and Jax may or may not have gone in all the way up to his nose while I was
scrubbing Avery's hair.

I L.O.V.E having 2 babies!!

Halloween 2010

We went to the wards

My two little monkeys!
Jax is 1 month old!

Jax, you love to:
be held 24/7 by your mommy
quiver your little chin when you cry
sit in your swing
sneeeze 5 times in a row
make cute noises when you breathe after you eat
be swaddled
kick your feet
toot while you eat

You are such a sweet boy, we love you!

I CAN do this!

Today I dropped off
G-ma Boyce to go home
after 10 awesome days of help.
Before that, G-ma & G-pa Watson were here for a week.
Before that, aunt Ray-Ray was here for a long weekend.

Now....I don't know when family will come again...(HINT HINT)
Let's just say I had a mini-heart-attack/panic attack/hysterical moment
as I pulled out onto the road.
Avery was screaming from saying good-bye
and I knew Scott wouldn't be home for a good 3 hours.
But....I said a little prayer, turned up the music
and sang along (to drown out the screaming)
and by the time we got home, both babies were asleep.
I carried baby 1 in.
Then went back for baby 2.
I laid baby 2 on the couch, put a blanket on her
& carefully took baby 1 out of his car seat, wrapped him
up and laid him down on the chair (and he actually slept!).
I was able to:
text my sister using both hands,
watch last weeks Grey's,
make lasagna for dinner
either baby woke up.


Jax's 1st bath
at home

Poor little guy....

Well, it lasted about hmmm 2 minutes?
This boy definately doesn't like bath time....
