Catching up on things around the house…

Before Collin’s arrival I was busy getting the kids rooms rearranged.   Here are some ‘not so great’ pictures of them. 

Jack and Hailey share a room now.  I’m planning on painting two of the walls a teal or green color (like his bedspread) that way the whole room isn’t lavender! And sorry their beds are not made… at 9 months pregnant crawling into those beds to make them was NOT happening :)

See the missing closet door…add to the project list!


Collin’s room is pretty much done.  Maybe a little more decorating but we’ll get to that eventually. 



See the spot that needs to be painted… That’s another project I need to get too.IMG_6989 IMG_6990

We went down to Cordele for Memorial Day weekend for our family reunion.  My mom won over Hayden by letting him get wet in the big fountain!! Don’t you love his little mohawk :)  IMG_7045 IMG_7046 IMG_7047  IMG_7049 

We’ve started getting in Papa’s pool in the evenings.  It’s been so hot you have to wait till after 7pm to play outside!


Hailey is loving the swimming. She will take her swimmes off and flip upside-down underwater. She is our water baby!  Jack is still leery about getting in. Papa or Daddy can hold him but he really doesn’t enjoy it.  Today he got in a raft and was much more comfortable. He loves the sprinkler so maybe he’ll eventually get in the pool… or not :) IMG_7039     IMG_7042


Here are some snapshots of story time before we put the big kids to bed.  I guess Collin had heard this story too many times…. he was a little bored.IMG_7120 IMG_7126 IMG_7127 IMG_7128 IMG_7129 IMG_7131

I’m loving my cuddle time with this baby.  I just want him to stay this small and soft forever.  I don’t care if I hold him for two hours to let him nap. It will be over so soon and I want to soak up every moment.

He had his first apt. with the pediatrician last Friday.  All was good for being 3 1/2 days old.  He was already back up to his birth weight and still no signs of any jaundice.  We go back this Wed for his 2-week check-up.IMG_7151 IMG_7152

He’s been sleeping in his pack-n-play bassinet, but he recently took his first nap in his crib.IMG_7167 IMG_7168

Oh Stacia, these pictures are so sweet. I didn't take any pictures the day of the reunion. I think these of your mom and Hayden are just precious. I'm like you, I could cuddle the newborns forever! I also have been going in the pool with Hayden, but like you, I wait until late afternoon, when the pool is shaded from the trees in back. In fact, speaking of swimming, Hayden will have his first of two check-out swims today. He will swim in his summer clothes today, then on Monday, he will swim in his winter clothes.
Wish him luck. Love ya, Aunt Sue-Sue
P.S. Did the swing come?

Take your time with those projects because you're right, pretty soon these early baby days will be over!

Love Jack's big eye picture--he's still just the cutest little guy. So who does Collin look like?

Such a sweetie. I love the pictures of all 3 of the kids together. You're right, they grow up so fast.

Love all the pictures of the kids. I love the expressions of Jack and Hailey while they're holding Collin. Those pictures of you holding Collin are beautiful. And you did a great job decorating Collin's room.
