ta da!

Alright, I finally followed through.

Here are pictures of our family on Easter. There are only a few of Layne in his cute little outfit because he promptly pooped out of his diaper and got the white onesie not so white anymore!

Okay, only 3 tonight. Seems like my computer wants to be a pain in the rear and it has taken me 30 minutes to get these up!!

I will be sure to post more when I can. :)

Thanks for indulging me! :)



Here I am!!! :)

I have been meaning to come post, but have been so busy with life. Sheesh!! Going from 1 to 2 kids is quite the challenge. I guess I had heard that this is the hardest adjustment - but, I chose to ignore it for fear of freaking myself out! LOL

We are doing well. Layne is getting into somewhat of a routine at night. He will nurse at about 10 and then go to bed for the night in his cradle. And he will wake about every 3-4 hours after that. But, we are getting him to bed at that time...which is a start. He was wide-eyed and bushy-tailed wanting to look at his toys at 11 and 12 at night. So, we will take progress when it comes!

I am in the midst of Andy's vacation time. Can someone shoot me now for actually ASKING for this?!?! haha It's nice to have him home, but he completely interferes with my daily routine. Thankfully, he found a job to keep him busy for awhile. Looks like I will need to give him another task once he is done. Keeping him busy is key. Just like my kids....keep them busy and distracted and they won't peeve you too bad. hahaha

I have to upload my pictures to my computer from Easter. I will be sure to come back and post a few pictures that I got of us. It was a nice day!! But, going to church was like completing an Army mission...without the Army support. haha It took all I could to get to church...only to get to church and have to nurse Layne. And I am still not into the routine of wearing appropriate nursing clothes...and well, you can imagine how that scene ended. :) I will leave it at that...

Alright, I will leave you with this layout. One for our family Christmas album. Look at how tiny Bayleigh is! Anyway, this is one I finished pre-Layne. I am still working on getting my mojo back and finding the time to actually sit down and scrap.

And I will be back to post pictures later on this evening!

a tisket, a tasket

Okay, gotta post some more pictures of my baby boy. :) And yes, he is in a little basket. He is laying on a pillow that I stuffed down in there. I couldn't resist. I mean, I won't be able to do this very long. Have to get him used to my torture now. haha

I decided to take some of him in just his diaper. To remember how tiny his little hands, feet, legs, and all his part are. He was asleep until I laid him down in the basket and then he was bright-eyed and not too happy with me clicking away in his face.

Here he is.... Layne at 2.5 weeks old.


He was fairly cooperative. :) And look at those tiny hands and feet!!! This is why I scrapbook - to remember these days.

Layne had a fussy day today. He loves to go for walks though. And our daily walk to get Bayleigh from school was the highlight of his day. Hopefully, he will sleep well tonight. He was up until almost 1 am last night.

Alright, off to change a poopy diaper.

my two cuties

So, I had to take some St. Patrick's Day pictures of the kids together. Little Layne in his "Kiss me, I'm Irish" onesie and Bayleigh decked out in her finest of green. :) And tell me that Bayleigh didn't enjoy holding her brother and smiling for the camera.

Here they are....


How fun is that?? It is so neat to watch Bayleigh try to take care of him and hold him. She constantly tries to console him when he cries....telling him that "it's okay" and "sissy's here." I will enjoy it while it lasts. I know that as soon as he becomes mobile - it will all be over.

Here is my little man all suited up and getting quite uncomfortable being held by his sister's tired arms...

Just wanted to share those pictures with ya. I have tons more to share too....I can't help taking pictures almost everyday of him. He's just irresistible. So cute!! :)

Have a great day!

Still here...

I am still here. Barely hanging on, but here.

The latest - our baby boy arrived! Little Layne Andrew Wildes was born on March 1st at 2:45 p.m. and he weighed 7 lbs, 3 ozs and was 19 inches long. We are all quite enamored with him. Especially his big sister - who just wants to sit and hold him all day long. :)

Here he is at the hospital...

And all that 7 lbs is in his sweet little face. He has little chicken legs and is so tiny. I quickly forgot how little newborns were until this little one arrived. Goodness, so tiny!!!

We are adjusting to life with 2 kiddos. Bayleigh is doing well, but has her obvious qualms about a new little person entering our lives and our home. Especially when he demands so much of my time. I have got to get better at juggling the two better. I don't want her to think that she is second rate, I have to get better about giving her more of my time as well. Hopefully, this won't be the reason she needs therapy as an adult. LOL :)

No real scrapping for me lately. I did finish a page up about sharing the news of our pregnancy with Bayleigh and Andy. I got it done right before Layne arrived.
I also finished a Christmas layout for our family album and will post it as soon as I get it uploaded and resized. :)

Well, off to do some more baby duty. I promise to update with more pictures of Layne soon. He is 2 weeks old today! I need to post his birth story too.

Hope this post finds you all well.
