1 Month & 4 Years

The boys had their pictures taken a couple weeks ago. They both did so great and were very cooperative. Grayson was one month old and Taylor is 4 years old. What sweet little men they are. :-)

Testosterone + dishes = mess :-)

Taylor loves to help do everything.....dishes, dusting, taking out the trash, cooking....anything! I am grateful for his help. I don't mean that sarcastically either! I can load the dishwasher and ask him to come start it and he puts the soap in, closes it and pushes the right buttons to get it started. Same with laundry. I fill up the washer and dryer, and he operates the buttons and gets things started. Such a smart little cookie! With our new busy schedule with a newborn, his helpfulness has come in handy many times! This week I was washing some things in the sink and he wanted to help. So, after I was done I gave him a few cups to wash. I went to go get Grayson and when I came back, what a fun little water mess we had at the sink! Those cups were sparkling clean and Taylor was quite wet! He was having a blast, so I just let him finish and cleaned up the mess when he was done. Sometimes I think it's OK to let them make some messes (supervised of course). So every once in a while I will take of my "everything must be clean" hat and let his testosterone go wild. :-)

Brotherhood.....week 5

This was an exciting week for the little man! He got to go to church for the first time. He entered into worship while sleeping in his car seat and decided the preaching wasn't his favorite part just yet, so we camped out in the nursing moms room until it was over. Over all he did great and we are all SO excited to be back at church as a family again. :-) I think he is used to all the loud noises around here with our little musician Taylor, so he just sleeps through it all and doesn't even flinch. If you are wanting to be in a quiet house, ours is NOT it! There are drums, guitars, loud songs, Daddy Taylor duets, etc... randomly throughout the day. I am glad Grayson has adjusted to the noise quite well. :-) We've had a pretty low key week with this nasty Texas weather, but are hopeful this week the weather will warrant a few park days! I am so grateful for these 2 boys. I know we have lots of fun filled memories ahead. What special gifts they are!

Big Smiles
I'm not sure what this face of Taylors is. It kind of looks like he just got Botox. :-)
Thought this may be a cute pic, but no......looks like Taylor has adult size feet!

Trust in HIM

So lately when Grayson starts crying, Taylor will say, "Little Grayson, you just have to trust in God. It's OK Buddy!" Sometimes followed by a song about trusting in the Lord. So next time you catch yourself throwing an adult type tantrum, take the wisdom of a 4 year old.....and just trust in God! It will be A-OK! :-)

Grayson....week 4

Grayson Jack is now 4 weeks old! He's been sleeping like a champ and smiling lots. He is such a joy. He has reached the 10 pound mark this week! He is a growing boy for sure....just like Taylor. :-)

Grammie's Bundle

Grammie, this one is for you! Here is a picture of your little bitties! Love you!


Some of the boys bestest friends are their cousins. They love spending time with them. They are wild, silly and always have lots of fun together. We are so grateful to have family close and for Godly family for our boys to grow up with. We are blessed!

Cousins not pictured: sweet Kaitlin and Eli. I haven't got their pictures with Grayson yet. :-)
