And a Happy Thanksgiving To All

I hope that everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving! I know that I did! We had dinner at my MIL's house followed by dessert & games...a Thanksgiving tradition! 

This year I wasn't able to go out shopping super early, b/c we didn't have anyone to watch the boys, but we went out at a more decent hour on Friday. Our Christmas shopping is almost complete!

I've posted tons of new photos on my smugmug...for some reason blogger wouldn't let me post any here.

Brennan's First Bath


Yeah, I know...Brennan is over a month old and I'm just giving him his first bath now. Bad mommy. I washed him off up until now, I just didn't fully immerse him!

Anyway, Brennan had his first bath today, and he did much better than I thought he would. He stayed quiet for most of it and just cried a little bit.

First Smile

Brennan smiled for the first time today. I was sad because it wasn't at me, but at Miguel. He did smile at me a little later on, but the first one was to his papi. He has an adorable little smile!


Tonight Miguel and I are going on our first date since Brennan's birth! We are dropping the boys off at their grandparents house and we plan to have dinner and then watch a movie! I'm so excited!

Prayers for Alyson

I just want to ask everyone to keep my dear friend's youngest daughter, Alyson, (who happens to be 1 day younger than Brennan) in your prayers. She is in the hospital for pneumonia and dehydration. Poor baby had to have a lumbar puncture and an IV. She's also on oxygen. I know it's hard for her parents to see her that way. We are praying for Aly & her parents that she has a quick recovery.

1 Month Checkup

Today was Brennans 1 month check up. He now weighs a whopping 8 lbs. (10-25%), and is 21 1/2 inches long (50%). He's a growing boy!

His next visit to the doctor is at 2 months.

1 Month Comparison

Colin - TOP Brennan - BOTTOM

1 Month Old

Baby Brennan is 1 month old today. Oh, how the time has flown! I can't believe that a mere month ago, he was still inside of me waiting to come out!
He is such a blessing to us. All of the trouble and problems that we went through while I was pregnant with him was so worth it because he is such a good baby. I love having him around!
He has his 1 month check up tomorrow, so I will post with his progress!

Good Music Monday

Picture Perfect Thursday

It's Picture Perfect Thursday again! This week my 'Perfect Picture' is of me and my two boys. Even though my niece is popping up in the background, Colin looks miserable, Brennan looks like a blob and I have a half smile...I still like the picture because it is the first (and only) picture that I have of myself with my boys. I hope many more will follow!

There is so much to be grateful for, so I hate to narrow it down each week. This week, I'd like to share how grateful I am to be able to stay home (mostly) with my boys. I'm an RN, and my profession is one that is very flexible with scheduling. I only work 2 days a week (will only be 1 when I go back from maternity leave!), and b/c of that the boys are either with myself, my husband or my mother. I'm so grateful that we are blessed enough with my husbands job for us to be able to do that. I spend quality time with the boys just about every day, and then 1 day a week each, my husband and my mother get to share in that special bond alone with Colin (and soon Brennan). It's beautiful to watch their bond grow!
