My little man

It's bound to happen they have to grow up it only becomes even more apparent when I spend all day taking care of a new baby how big my little guy is now. Even with all his crazy antics we love him more everyday

No A/C!

A week ago our upstairs a/c decided it would take a crapper. Irony that this happens on a friday night when there is nothing we can do about it. Thankfully our downstairs was still working so we had a little camp out downstairs.

I can't wait for them to be best buds

My only consolation for being okay with having another boy was that someday they would grow up and be best buds, we are getting there

My not so brilliant idea

Taygen is pretty obsessed with these dirt bikes we have two that haven't been ridden in forever but we hate to get rid of them since in a few years Taygen will be able to ride them. So every  in and out of our garage Taygen asks to go play on them which be wouldn't to be to big of a deal if it wasn't so darn hot right now and you sweat standing in our garage for even 5 minutes. So on this particular day after telling him no once again and dragging him inside crying I thought why don't I just bring it inside:) Not a bad idea except the bliss only lasted about 20 minutes and then it tipped onto the ground and completely scratched  our concrete floor opps!

Only 2 months later Taygen finally showed some interest in giving his baby brother a little physical attention. While he will get in his face and talk and poke him ( gently) with his finger or quickly give him his pacifier when he makes a peep he has yet to want to actually hold him. Till now...

It started out like this me gently putting Corbin to merely lean on Taygen

After a few minutes of the lean I asked if he would like to hold him he gave me a indecisive look so I took my chance and laid Corbin on his lap. You can tell by the smile he enjoyed it.

Of course like any man he had to have something to play with while he was holding the baby I mean just enjoying him is not enough.

Corbin is such a great baby which is a pretty stark contrast to how Taygen was. At 2 months he is....
Sleeping through the night from about 10 till about 5 ish

He holds his head up great which he has been doing pretty much since birth but he has now mastered it quite well.

We are finally getting giggles and smiles from him that are genuine instead of randomly while he was probably passing gas.

He is so calm and easy and will just go with the flow all day ( a trait that definitely came from his mother)

He is a great little boy and we are just enjoying almost every minute.

p.s. Yes Tay is naked in most pictures I have we are really working on the potty training.

Nana's House

Before we headed up to Washington for the reunion the kids and I got to go spend some time at my parents house we had lots of fun staying cool in the pool and just enjoying being in California other than it really wasn't too much cooler there.

This past week we had a family reunion up in Washington. The weather was nice and cold just how we like it since it's 110 in vegas. We had lots of fun seeing all our cousins and letting all our kids play together. 

Poor mom earned a gold star that day we weren't expecting Taygen to run in the water quite so fast and mom had to go in after him.

The water wasn't to cold but after he preceded to get completely soaked he started to get a little chilly of course this didn't make him want to get out. 

The beach had this long trail that just went all the way down where all these pretty grasses grew I thought it would make a good photo.

Corbin was a good little traveler getting lots of love and attention from everyone.
