What can I say... having two kids isn't just work... its a lot of work! But the funnest work I have had!
First lets quickly catch up on the kiddos!
Brynlee... oh my sweet girl! She is such a bright, independent, beautiful girl. She is becoming SO big these days. It seems like yesterday we were celebrating her 1st birthday and I am now planning her 2nd birthday in just two short months. I swear the time just flys by. She is getting smarter and smarter with every day. She loves to sing (mainly her ABC's, wheels on the bus, itsy bitsy, and head shoulders knees and toes) she knows the words to all of them. I love nothing more than when we are driving and I can just hear her sweet little voice in the backseat singing to me. It's the best thing ever. She is such an amazing big sister. I was so worried about her being jealous or not liking her brother, but oh...my...god... this girl LOVES her brother. Immediately questions where he when she wakes up and wont go to bed without giving him a kiss... or five. She loves to help me burp him, throws away all his dirty diapers, helps him swing, gives him his binky if he cries. She is just really a GREAT helper. Occasionally she will want to feed him a snack of hers or lay on top of him, but its all out of love. She has an obsession with two baby dolls, I swear its a sign she is having twins someday, so mark my word! She is always carrying them both, never apart. Its the cutest thing. She also loves cars, trucks, choo choos, and planes. She had a great Christmas and Santa brought her a brand new play kitchen that she just LOVES. And she also loves her new scooter! We ride it to the mailbox everyday and shes got it down! I really cannot believe she will be 2 so soon. I love watching every little step of her growth and I wish I had her imagination. It is the best thing ever to witness.
And my sweet boy Beckham! I havent blogged about him since he was born... how sad! This boy is seriously the light of my life. He is the sweetest thing ever. First I will say... he is HUGE! Such a chunky baby and so solid! Future linebacker I am sure! He is full of smiles these days and coo's all the time. I love hearing him "talk". And so does his sister! He really loves his sister. Anytime she is around or comes up to him, he gets the biggest smile on his face. I think he truly looks up to her and I love it. He is already sleeping through the night at about 11-12 hours. Ammmazing. Best feeling ever as a mom is when you get your little one sleeping thru the night. He is already wearing 3-6 month clothes and all the newborn and 3 month clothes are pretty much done for. I just love this little boy of mine. I was always scared to have a boy but it truly is the best thing ever. I love that I will always have my girl AND my boy. I feel like I will get to experience the best of both worlds as a mom and its awesome!
The new year is approaching and I have a few new years resolutions so I just want to write them down so I can reference them back if I happen to forget :)
- No more soda
- Work out at least 3 x week ( I wish I could say everyday but with 2 kids, working full time and trying to be a mom, I am being realistic... I know everyday just wouldnt happen!)
- Be a better wife. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in both babies that I forget to show my husband how much I love him. So I just need to get better at doing little things to show him I care and that he is noticed.
- Save more money. I wish I could be a better saver like Ryan is. I need him to help me on this!
- Blog more! I will do my best at trying to get back to blogging at least once a month. It's a lofty goal since I am so busy but I will do my very best!
