What a week!!!

I can't believe my little tiny girl will be 3 weeks old tomorrow!
(Thanks Rachel for this cute romper, she looked so cute for church today!)
Jon went back to work on Monday, and I do have to say I was a little nervous about getting 3 of us ready everyday, getting out with 2, etc. But this week has gone great! Monday morning I ventured out to Target with the 2 children and myself, and as long as we only purchase enough things to fit on the very bottom of the grocery cart we are great! Cade likes to sit in the big part of the buggie, but he doesn't like anything in there with him unless he can eat it right then! Ha! :) He has been really good this week which made it easy for me!
Tatum is doing really well! Most of the nights this week she has only gotten up once and gone right back to sleep, however Thursday night was a different story. She got up at 3:30 and didn't want to go back to sleep at all! I am really glad she is back to her normal routine!
Our friends Matt and Lindsey and their little girl Avery brought us a delicious dinner the other night! Avery is nearly 3 months old and she was checking out her new friend!
Tatum has started smiling alot this week, of course it is very hard to get a picture of it, but I will someday! It just makes me the happiest momma ever when i see this smile....last night I was singing/talking to her alot and Jon and I were just watching her smile over and over! How sweet!
We had a swim day at my moms one day with Cade's cousins, here they are sitting and waiting patiently for me to get this picture before they all jumped in the pool!
Thank you Kimmy for this FABULOUS new bikini! She came over one night this week and brought Tay this teeny tiny little zebra bikini and it fits her perfect! Thanks Kim, I am so in love!

Wednesday night our friends Brandon and Tanna had a gender revealing party! They are having a baby GIRL in January and we are so excited for them! So glad Brylee and Cade will have siblings the same age too! Such a fun party! :)
Thursday Court, Beckham, Ashie (as Cade says), and Mimi came over to play!
The boys had a great time playing together and for the first time, i think, they were calling each other by their names! So cute! :) Ashley and Mimi got some much needed time with Tatum too! :)
After begging, pleading, pretty much bribing Jon, I got to take Tatum to her first girls night! :) Jon had said when I was pregnant with her that she was going to have to stay home with him and Cade (yah right) when i went out with the girls, but how in the world are they supposed to have a boys night (crawling all around McDonald's play place, talking about boy stuff, and who knows what else goes on) with a baby girl!?!? She needed to go with me! So here she is on her first girls night out, she really enjoyed it!
Thanks to mimi for this cute outfit!
Jamie came in town this week and got to spend some time with the little Miss!
She is getting married in March and we got to spend some time with her and the fiance, Allen this week! So excited for them!


What a fun week!

We spent alot of family time together this weekend and I really enjoyed it!

I am SO THANKFUL for my family!

Weekend Wrap

It's already Monday again!
Our little Tatum Lauren is 2 weeks old today! I can't believe how fast the time goes by! She is SO much fun and we are SO thankful she is now apart of our family! I am almost afraid to type/say this, but the past several nights she has only gotten up once, ekkk! Let's hope that doesn't doom us for tonight, I am just so proud of her! We never had that luxury with Cade, so we are super grateful for the sleep! Jon went back to work today, we knew it was coming all along, but it was very sad to see him leave this morning! I have been sending him pics all day, hoping it's been a little easier for him to go back! Tatum had her 2 week checkup today and she has already gained a pound since she was born and grown an inch and a half in length! Good girl Tay! :)
We had a really busy and fun weekend!
Saturday was Isabelle's first birthday party! I can't believe this little girl is ONE already! Oh my! She is super cute and Michelle did an amazing job on her party! Everything was decked out in cupcake theme, way to go Mich!
Tatum's first picture with the girls, we missed Jen and Andrea!
After Izzie's party Tatum and I met the boys for Brenden's 4th birthday party at the pool!
He had a really cute Toy Story party! Why do kids have to grow up so fast?!
Cade had a BLAST at the party and DID NOT want to leave at all!
Happy Birthday Brenden!
Last night we went over to the Erwin's house for a birthday celebration for both Kristy and Ryan's birthdays! There were 8 kids under the age of 2 there....i am missing Kennedy in this pic. I think that would be because one of the many children were falling on top of her! We had a really great time and all the kids/babies were so much fun! How fun for all these kids to grow up together!! :)
After church yesterday we met Mimi and Pops for lunch!
Cade has decided to be a big boy and sit in booths at restaurants now, why didn't we let him do this sooner?!?! :) He had so much fun seeing Mimi and Pops!
My little priss!
Cade and Hudson having a blast together last night, i think they were playing tackle football....such boys!
Kim and Kristy with Tay!
Happy 2 week birthday lil girl!

Tonight is the bachelor and I have NO IDEA who is even on the show right now. AND, I don't think between now and tonight I will have a chance to catch up on my DVR. If anybody knows and wants to catch me up so I can watch tonight I would love that!

Happy rainy Monday!

A week at home with the kids!

WOW, i can't believe we have been home for over a week now!
We are loving the family of 4 so much! Jon has been off work since we had Tatum, but sadly he has to go back to work on Monday! What are we going to do without him?!?! When he went back to work after we had Cade he would call me to make sure I fed him, ha! :) Of course I would never forget to do that!
We have had alot of fun this first week at home, and of course I took a ton of pics to remember it!
Here is Tatum all dressed for church on Sunday!
Cade loves to snuggle with his sister, for the most part he is pretty gentle with her....sometimes he likes to show her her eyes, nose, tongue and it can get pretty rough!
He loves her so much and tells are all the time!
Last night we had a family dinner at my parents house before my dad left today for a mission trip for a while. My granny B and grandad came and met Tatum for the first time!
More playtime with Tay!
Sweet girl, she is like my very own baby doll! I am having so much fun dressing her up and holding this little tiny girl!
My sister just showed up last night at dinner, we were all surprised!
Bath time!
Kenzie finally has a girl cousin to play with, they will have so much fun together when Tatum gets a little older!
Kenny, Reba, and lil Kennedy came to visit, check out her cute little gummy smile! She is SO precious!
I love how Kennedy is looking at Cade here!
Sunbathing....
Tatum did this ALOT the first week until the jaundice went away! She loved it so much, but I am happy I get to hold her anytime I want now!
Swimming

Jon bought Tatum her first bikini as a shower gift and she got to wear it for a bit the other day, well really just for a pic at the pool!
How sweet!
Oh i just love her so much!
I think she might be tall like her mommy, check out those long arms and legs!

Daddy and his babies!

Tatum's first bath, she loved it!


Tuesday Jon went to work for a little while, Cade went to MDO, and Brooke, Gigi, and I shopped a little for Brooke's new house and enjoyed lunch together! :)
These 2 were SO sleepy!

Later that day Brenley and Gage and their mommies came over, we had a good time playing with the kids and chatting! :)
I promise we didn't pose them, the girls just love Gage this much already! Such a ladies man he is! :)
Tuesday was our first little baby G's 2nd birthday!
We usually have a pic with our tree, but we haven't planted it yet at our new house. We went to dinner to celebrate and spend some time together, just the 4 of us!
Sometimes it's so hard to understand why things happen the way they do.....2 years ago i NEVER thought I would have a happy, healthy baby girl and little boy! But if we never went through our miscarriage with our first baby, we wouldn't have these 2 precious children!
God is always SO good! :)
We are SO thankful!
I think this might be my new FAVORITE pic of Cade!
He makes me SO happy!
Jon took Cade man to get his haircut the other day and Tay and I met up with them for lunch, such cute lil buddies they are! :)
Tay and I stopped by the pool for a few mins while the boys swam, can't wait for Tatum and I to join them!


Happy Daddy!

We have really enjoyed all this time Jon has been off work!

He has been a HUGE help to me and he even said today, " how am I going to go back to work?"

We love him so much and SO thankful for him everyday!

Have a great weekend!
