blue eyed boys

boys and their toys

the obsession started when he was only a few weeks old.....

Blake ALWAYS wants to go for rides on pa's tractor (two of his most favorite things!)

and would CRY when he had to get off

it didn't matter if they were even mowing the lawn, he was perfectly content to just SIT on it

pa has been teaching him how to drive and turn

but as blake gets older (and bigger) it's getting harder for BOTH of them to sit on the tractor
so pa thought it was time for him to have his own!

this was blake's birthday present this year!

he couldn't be happier, he LOVES it
and now they can mow the lawn together!

my 3 month old

where does the time go!? i can't believe it's already been 3 months! i'm sure those of you with more than one child will agree that the second time around sure goes by a lot faster (jayme, you'll have to tell me what it's like the 3rd, 4th, and 5th time! must seem like the blink of an eye! :o)

here are some stats:
weight is 12.4 lbs - 25-50th %
height is 23 1/2 in - 50th %
head is 40 cm- 25th %
the doctor says he's perfect.... (i'm sure he tells all his patients that though!)
some of you may be shocked to know that blake's stats at this age were almost identical! hard to believe when you look at him now!

adam is a HUGE smiler, he loves attention, and looks like he's about to burst into a huge laugh every time he smiles. we've gotten a few giggles out of him, and i have to say it's about the cutest thing ever! we love him SO much, and are so blessed to have him as part of our family!

thanks mommy

so yesterday i wasn't feeling very good... actually i was feeling really sick, i was up all night with nausea (don't even joke about being pregnant, i'm not, and it wouldn't be funny!) and had a horrible headache and sore throat. on top of that blake has been pretty sick for the last couple days, making him extra fun! jonathan was unable to stay home and help out, but my mom happened to have the day off, so i called her and i'm pretty sure she made it to my house in record time! not only did she come help me with the boys, she cleaned my kitchen, did a bunch of laundry, all the while telling me to just go lay down on the couch... she would take care of it. thanks to her i was able to get some rest and both blake and i are feeling much better! i guess no matter how old you get, your mom never stops being your mommy!
mom, thank you so much for everything, you are the best! I LOVE YOU!
