So I havn't been feeling inspired as to what to post about lately, and I'm actually still not, but I figured I'd at least give the updates of what our family's been up to lately. A few weeks ago we took a 3 day trip to San Diego where we went to the Wild Animal Park and Sea World and spent plenty of time playing in the pool at our hotel (that was Justin's favorite part!) We all had a lot of fun, but boy, vacation wears me out! I always feel like I need recovery time from vacation! Since then we've been busy with Justin's school, swimming lessons, and hanging out with friends. Monday we had our big ultrasound and were able to see that the baby looks great and has all the parts he's supposed too, and yes, we confirmed that it is indeed a boy! I realize that this is the first time I have mentioned anything about this pregnancy on the blog, but I'm assuming that everyone who reads this has known that we're expecting for ages. If anyone is finding this out for the first time, I apologize for the late news, and chastise you for not keeping in better touch with me! Aside from all that we're just enjoying life. It seems that we keep getting busier, and I'm sure that will continue to be the case as we welcome another member to our family later this year!

The 1 Day Mohawk!

So Nazar has a habit of cutting the boy's hair without consulting me, and last week was no different. He decided Justin needed a haircut and starting cutting it with a number 2 (way too short if you ask me!) before I could say anything. Well I went upstairs to shower, and a little while later Justin comes running in to show me his new do! A perfect 2 inch mohawk sticking up from his now practically bald head! He was completely ecstatic about it, but it gave me flashes of his upcoming punk teenage years when he is no longer my sweet mommy loving little boy. Suffice it to say, I told Nazar to cut it off. Well apparently this was the meanest thing I could have said to Justin because he had a complete meltdown. He sobbed and screamed and begged to keep his mohawk. Well eventually we came to a compromise and decided that he could keep the mohawk for the day and that we would take lots of pictures so he could remember it. 2 hours later he was ready to cut it off, but he sure loved it while he had it!

Just Me And The Boys

With the addition of our second son Dawson to our family last year, I'm completely outnumbered. At times it seem like life is just one big noisy, dirty, wrestling match! But really I couldn't be more happy! Justin and Dawson are so much fun (most of the time!) It's been so fun to watch them grow and develop. In an attempt to share our stories and pictures with those of you who are interested, I'm starting my first blog. My plan is to keep you updated on what's going on in our lives, but I reserve the right to slack off every now and then! After all I do have a 3 year old and a 1 year old!
