Fourth of July


This is a bit late. I’ve been behind on blogging. I wanted to post a few pics from our Fourth of July celebration with the Guisingers. We had a lot of fun eating good food and shooting off our little fireworks while enjoying the barrage of huge ones the neighbors on every side purchased. Who needs to go to the fort for the big show? We’ve got it right here.

Two Months Old

Kaylynn is two months old! She still wakes up once or twice during the night though we had a one week stretch where she slept seven hours straight. Some of her favorite things include the ceiling fan and the flower print on the couch. She smiles and coos at them a lot. She is just learning to control her hands a little bit, and really likes to sit up. Even though she can’t do it on her own she sure tries hard. She’s also my little sneezer and she’ll complain when one gets stuck. She is so cute! I like her perfect swirl of a belly button. I love my little sweet pea!

Playin’ Hooky


On Sunday, we skipped church and drove over to Cannon Beach.  Weekends fill up fast so we thought we’d take advantage of the decent weather on a free day.  Desmond enjoyed flying kites for the first time, and Kaylynn slept through the whole thing.  Of course, we ended the day with clam chowder at Mo’s.

Cutest Kids Ever!

There are so many little moments I miss capturing on camera, but here are a few bonding moments between brother and sister.  Even with all the work they are, I’m totally in love with these guys!


Pumping: Iron & Milk

DSC_0010I got off of my work out schedule when I was down in Albany for three days.  I brought my stuff, but without my normal routine and both kids to tend to during the night and early morning, I just didn’t make it happen.  It’s hard to get back on track!  I’ve only worked out twice this week, but I’ve been eating really good, so I’m happy to see the scale still moving in the right direction.  Today I did level three of the 30 Day Shred, and man, I wish I had three pound weights instead of fives, but it felt good to have sweat dripping off my nose!

I still nurse Kaylynn about once a day, but the pumping rhythm is feeling more manageable and it’s what we’ll probably stick with.  I’ve cut way down on the amount of pumping I’m doing, but I’m still making lots of extra milk and I’m ready to donate to the milk bank.  I estimate that I have about six gallons in the freezer.  Gotta leave some room for food!  My application will be complete once my OBGYN is back from vacation and signs the form.  Hopefully it won’t be long after that to ship some of this off to a new baby who needs it.
