Long time, No blog...

We've been BUSY! I feel like I've been going non-stop for the past 2 weeks and it doesn't look like things are going to slow down anytime soon.
Scott spent the week with us.

We prepared for Double K day, which I've now realized that I took virtually no pictures of :( Maybe I can get Mary to post some on her know that thing she hasn't posted on in over 3 months!! Or at least email me her pics and I'll post them.
It was a great party and we had fun being with friends and family.

The boys all drank too much

The kids bounced too much

And ate too much chocolate

...note to self, a chocolate fountain and a windy day are not a good combination.

The next morning we dragged the hung-over boys out of bed and headed off to the Great Escape (Six Flags Park)
Where we again ate too much and the boys drank too much.

It was a fantastic weekend!

Ian had last week off from work and it was cold here. Like colder than Fall weather cold. So we pretty much hung out with family....and ate some more! LOL I'm pretty sure I've put on almost 10 pounds these last two weeks!! Yikes!
This little man turned 6 last week! I can't believe it! He's getting so big, it feels like just yesterday I was at the hospital holding him at only a few hours old! He's such a big kid now.

Sami had her first pool experience at his birthday party.

Daddy dipped her toes in the big pool and then Poppy set up the kiddy pool for her and Nana sat with her in it. We put her bumbo seat in the pool and she loved it! She liked sitting in the water and splashing her feet.
Scott's back with us again this week, for some much needed quality time. Maybe I can get him to work out with me so I can lose some of this vacation weight. He's starting soccer next week so we're going to start practicing today.

We took some video of Sami talking last week I'll have to get them uploaded so I can share them too.

Ok, time to get off this ever growing butt and get moving...until next time...

Little Peanut

Can you believe that my little peanut has decided she wants to sleep in her crib! Already!! She's been in the crib for two weeks now. The bassinet was getting kind of small for her and one night she just decided that it wasn't going to work anymore so I put her in the crib and she put herself to sleep! When she woke up for her 2am feeding I thought it would be easier to just put her back down in the bassinet so I didn't have to bring her back to her room. She wasn't having it! She fussed until I brought her back to her room and she went right back to sleep. I can't believe what an amazing baby she is. She really is an easy baby and I know how lucky I am every day. Today she is down for a nap in her crib. This is her first nap in the crib. And she put her self to sleep again! She was cranky and hot so I tried rocking her in front of the fan, tried singing to her, bouncing her...everything and she wouldn't stop crying. I finally layed her in her crib and 3 minutes later she was out like a light! What a good girl!

2 Months

My beautiful little girl is 2 months old today!! She had her check up and is doing great on all fronts. She now weighs 11 pounds 5 ounces and is 23 inches long! She's getting big!
Unfortunately, the 2 month check up also means SHOTS! Ouch! She did good though and only cried when they were putting the shots in and then stopped almost immediately after they took the needle out.

Here is her boo-boo face :(

To catch up...
Sami is down for her morning nap, and this is really the only time I'll have all day to type. Usually I'm laying down with her and getting some much needed sleep, but today I'll sacrifice so I can post a little. There are things everyday that I want to post about but can never seem to get the time.

Not sure where to start really....I guess just a few things...
Sami is going to have a new cousin!!! For those of you who don't already know Jewl is prego with #2!!!! We are so excited for them...and us! She's due in March...I have 2 other friends that are pregnant that are also due in March so it will with out a doubt be a busy month! I can't wait!! Plus, Jewl will be coming home to NY for the pregnancy so I won't have to wait 3 months to meet my new little niece or nephew like we did with Em.
My cousin Jamie is also preggers and due in November with her first. They are having a little girl...which seems to be the trend for November this year since Kari and Beth are both adding another little girl to their families in November.

Babies, babies everywhere! I'm so excited. Sami is getting SO big already! She is so adorable in the early morning. She wakes up with the biggest smiles I've ever seen and laughs at her daddy getting ready for work. It's so cute and it makes me so happy that they have such a wonderful time in the morning before he leaves.
We go to the doctor on Thursday for her shots...wish me luck, lol...her too.

Saturday we brought Sami to the Irish Festival. She loved it! There's really not much for a 2 month old to do there, lol. But she loved the music and we danced with her and she seemed to have a good time. We also watched a few Gaelic Football games, which she also enjoyed. We even got her picture taken with a Leprechaun! Too Cute! Here are some pics of her at the Festival...

Dancing with Daddy

With the lucky leprechaun

And since Mary doesn't seem to update her blog more than are a couple shots of my adorable nephew and niece...

I LOVE Cole's smile in this pic! He is testing for his orange belt in Tae Kwon Do this week! You go little man!

What a cutie!
Ryleigh has earned a stripe on her belt in Tae Kwon Do because she can tie her own! What a big girl!

I love you guys!!
