I was away this long Memorial weekend in Las Vegas with Vickie, my NYC bestie and about 15 other ladies to celebrate a friend's (Julie) birthday. We had such a good time, doing all the things we love to do:  eat, drink, people watch, sleep late, go running, browse in the designer shops and dance into the wee hours. So much fun!

But I missed my boys. A lot.  I came home feeling very grateful for everything that I have.  Mike and I were talking yesterday and we both came to the conclusion that we have never been happier, both with ourselves and with our life together. I'm pretty sure it has a LOT to do with the little people in the photos, below.  I know that children can put a strain on a marriage, but in our case the opposite has happened.  When one of the babies throws an attitude we band together, kind of like, 'It's us against the crazies!'. 

Here are some of my favorite pictures from the last week.

I am becoming obsessed with LW and his sweet little face. He is so yummy.

Lincoln is 4 months old today!

And he can sit up, with assistance.  We love you LW!

First Bath Together

Ever since we decided to have a second baby I'd dreamed about how cute they would be in the bathtub together.  Lincoln is too small to 'play' but soon they will be splashing and playing with submarines and scuba divers.

After I took Link out of the tub Mike quietly watched Hudson play. His imagination is really developing these days.  Cute!

I took a nap with LW yesterday afternoon and when I woke up, this is what I saw.

Mother's Day 2010

Here are a few of my favorite pics from Mother's Day morning.  Hudson found a treat in the pantry that the Easter Bunny had brought for him, then decided that he had already eaten WAY too much chocolate on Easter weekend.

This morning

How cute was Hudson this morning?

Letting Max in.

Then Timber, and letting a cat out.

My mother mentioned that photos with the pacifier are getting fewer and less frequent. And in the photo of him asleep on the couch he's got it in his hand, not in his mouth.  He is willing to leave it in his bed most mornings, even if he does run back into his room after a few minutes to retrieve it.  I'm not going to stress over the giving up of 'Bubby'.  I'm really not ready for him to grow up that much yet.

Tired boy

Hudson fell asleep on the couch on the weekend. It's the first time he's ever done that.  The cat promptly took advantage of the situation.

This is how this morning went down.

I was hanging out with Lincoln. He has gotten very chatty.

Our Weekend

I admit it, Mike and I are pretty tired. LW has been sick this week and H was sick last week so there hasn't been a full night of sleep for anyone in quite a while. Regardless, we had some fun this weekend.  Hudson was moved to a toddler bed and that has gone much better than expected.

Hudson goofed while Mike converted his crib into a bed. Lincoln seemed to be a somewhat willing participant.

After the bed was assembled we just hoped for the best.

Outfit of the Day

Who said I would need to have a girl in order to enjoy dressing up my baby?  I love buying clothes for the boys, especially Hudson now that he's moved into 'little boy' from 'baby'.  I almost find it a challenge to locate cool, fun but cute clothes absent of puppies, trucks, 'Daddy's Little Such-and-Such', trains, etc. You get the picture. It's been a fun challenge as it seems almost every retailer plasters their boy clothes with some version of the aforementioned.

I read several fashion blogs like this   and this   and this  where regular, fashionable women post pictures of their 'outfit of the day'.

This is my version.

Tee shirt:  Crewcuts 'Ahoy Matey' tee here
Shorts: Mini Boden Vintage Cargo shorts here
Shoes: See Kai Run Elliott here

(yes pizza for breakfast)

Link is trying to roll

I found this yesterday when I checked on Link during his nap.
