Terrific and Two

My little Wesley peanut went from this,
to this cute tot,
to this handsome two year old boy.
He was able to celebrate a little early with Grandma and Grandpa Johnson after Fredrick's blessing,
And then with more family when we went up for Connor's blessing. (Yes, I chopped my hair off. Mandy's mom is a hair genius and I love it.)

And then finally on his birthday with Grandma and Grandpa Weatherspoon.
Wesley, I love you. You are such a special boy. You have a sweetness about you that is so rare to find. You are so much fun to have in our home. I love your hugs, your cuddles, the cute way you are saying your words, your excitement about life, the way you love to read with me, and how good you are with your baby brother. We are so blessed to have you in our home as one of our family.

Thanksgiving 2010

This year we spent Thanksgiving in Salem, and LeGrand experienced the joy of having paid holidays. Such a great concept! My mom brined a turkey for all the carnivores, while I tried a VeganDad recipe which was a little labor intensive, but really delicious. Next year I think I will use my mom's famous stuffing for the inside, but other than that these are definitely a keeper. If you are of the meat-eating persuasion you should at least check out the chutney recipe--so delicious!

That is a face that has been drinking the wonderful secret-recipe holiday punch! It is a good thing that recipe makes a ton, because it is seriously "yum."
Out for an after-Thanksgiving walk!

Look at me all cute!

All bundled up going to (sleep) look for a Christmas tree with Grandma and Grandpa
Wesley's favorite part is the remote that controls the outside Christmas lights. The neighbors probably think my parents are sending out some kind of Morse code every time we visit.
I loved watching the season be magical for Wesley. He was so cute and excited about everything.
Fredrick was equally cute, if much less aware of what was going on. Don't you love their matchy outfits? (Thank you grandma and black Friday sales!)
And speaking of being matchy, look at our fun Christmas jammies. We all had matching ones thanks to the Children's Place outlet. You can see that LeGrand was absolutely thrilled to be decked out.
Look at this goofiness!
Our Christmas baby.

Fredrick at 2 months

I know that I am dreadfully behind. My excuses this time come from the fact that our laptop cord broke, and after we replaced it I was into the full-on rush of Christmas projects about which I'm always overly ambitious. The rush is over, so let the posts begin!

This was a picture of Fredrick on his two month birthday. He is such a good baby. He is on a pretty regular schedule, waking up twice a night and at two months he was starting to recognize us and we got the first little smiles. So fun! We love this little guy so much. He's a big baby . . . at this point he was already over 12 pds! His dimples are a constant source of delight to me.
