Welcome baby Ricks

Aunt CC had baby ricks at 9:46 this morning...he weighs 4 lbs 14 oz and has his daddy's lips. He's perfect and adorable! I love my nephew (to be named later)...

Jack as Thor!

Today Jack picked out his Halloween costume...after trolling the aisles of super heroes, he settled on Thor...

I typically don't care for the cheesy, store-bought costumes, but this was his first year that he really cared about what he dressed as long as this little man is happy, and he doesn't injure anyone with his "hammer of justice," I'm happy. Plus he looks so dang cute...or strong...or mighty...that's the word I was going for.

(ps: it's a little tight in the crotch he might need to break it in every day until halloween to stretch it out!)

Lila loves Missoni for Target

I'm not one into trends much, but after all the Missoni for Target hoopla, I had to check it out. And low and behold, there was plenty of Missoni swag left at my local Target...soooo I followed the trend and hopped on the bandwagon. I picked up a tote, baby blanket, wine cases, and a media case. Why?!?

But as I'm second guessing my purchases, I'm also wishing I had a laptop because the laptop case was killer...oh marketing...

Boys in the woods...

For Papa's birthday, the boys went fishing. Despite the fact that this fish weren't biting, they all had fun. Jack tossed a hotdog in the pond for the fish to enjoy later, and they went on a hike where they came across a group of deer which Jack identified as white tail deer. (Thanks Diego!).


Ponytails and hair bows only last in Lila's hair for a few minutes before she pulls them out...but they're cute while they last!

Side note: when I put Lila's hair in a mini pony like this, I can't help but think she looks like Wesley from the Princess right!?! "As you wish..."

Jack's First Day of Preschool

Today was my Jack's first day of preschool! Big guy...

It's a program through his daycare, so he'll break out to a separate room on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and his friends will be with him, so it won't be too much of a transition from his norm, except for the special visit days and field trips.

My Jack...growing up in the blink of an eye, and yet still my baby when he needs me. Hopefully, he'll always need me.

Even though the change will be relatively minor, Jack told me he would be shy, but I think he'll be too excited to worry about such.

Here's the last peek before I drove makes my day so much better to leave seeing that happy face...

I love Jack (and Lila's) daycare/preschool. Last night Jack and I were reading the Lion King. As I read the part where Mufasa tells Simba that the stars are the kings before them, always watching over him just as he was, Jack stopped me and said, "Just like Jesus!!" it made me pause, hug him a little tighter, and remember how proud I am to be his Mom.
