Labor Day

This Labor Day, we packed up the boys (and Dixie) and headed to the lakehouse for a day of relaxation and fun with the family. Here are a few pics from the weekend.

A little fun in the sun with Poppa and Gigi
Reading time and bath time are always favorites with my boys :)

Daddy and Mama may be Baylor Bears, but Poppa's blood will always be crimson and cream...guess he can't help rooting for a future Sooners fan :)

Hanging out with Uncle Ben...
...and Aunt Jen (thanks for the AWESOME Thomas the Train set!)

2 Months Old

Jasper turned two months old today! Over the last week or so, he's settled down quite a bit, started smiling a lot more and "talking" to us. I'm so glad to be past the peak fussiness stage that it seems all babies go through, and I'm looking forward to seeing J show us more of his real personality over the next few months.

We had his check-up with Dr. Mac today, and Jasper is measuring almost exactly the same as his big brother at this age! He weighed 12 lbs, 5 oz (G was 12 lbs, 3 oz) and was 23.5 inches long (same as Griff). The shots were no fun at all, but Mama came prepared with a bottle to make everything better, and the tears were short lived. Other than the smiling and cooing, there aren't too many developmental milestones to report. Except the fact that the little guy has been sleeping a little better lately - going to bed at 10:00pm, waking up to eat around 1:30am, then sleeping till 6:30 or 7:00am. Praise the Lord for small blessings!

We came home and, while Jasper was napping, Griff and I spent some quality time playing outside - at least as much quality time as we could handle in this endless summer of record-breaking heat. Have I mentioned how much I despise Texas in the summer?? Today is the first day of September (whether the thermometer is willing to acknowledge that fact or not) and I'm clinging to the thought that fall is on its way!
