It's hard to believe that Hubby and I are the parents of three boys. Baby Brother is eighteen days old today and as always, I cannot believe it has been that long since I woke up at 5:50 AM and as I was getting out of bed, my water broke, and we headed to the hospital. It was a quick and easy labor and delivery, which I felt I was due after long and difficult labors with the other two, ha!
Lots of people have asked "is he a good baby?" to which I [...]

A little over a year ago, I posted some "Fun Facts" about Captain Fussybuckets & Baby D. I was thinking about it the other day and I can't believe it has been a year since I wrote it. It feels like only a few months ago. So, it's time I do it again. The Captain is 4 1/4 years old and Baby D is 2 (almost 27 months). They are so much fun and also can be quite michievous!
Fun Facts about Baby D
1. He loves his pacifiers, still, or [...]

This past weekend, we went to my parents' house and I went through some old dolls and toys. This was about the extent of the brothers playing with my dolls:
The Captain has a love for music and a love for musical instruments. I have lost count of how many instruments he has, but he loves them all and could probably tell you all about each and everyone one. Most of them are toys, but some are real. For Christmas this year, he got a child-sized accordion and a set of real bongos. He also got this super awesome didgeridoo that was MADE by his aunt. She is a music lover, too, and she spent hours on this thing.
(If you're wondering what a didgeridoo [...]

Something strange has happened, but apparently, it's fairly common. Baby D, who just turned 19 months old yesterday, is acting like a full fledged two year old. Just in the past two weeks or so, he's started becoming far more defiant than ever, saying "NEH!" for 'no' and even hitting and pushing us. This phenomena is very odd, because while he was getting into trouble a few weeks ago, he wasn't being defiant and still got his feelings hurt when we corrected him. But now……it's like a different kid….a kid in the midst of the terrible [...]

Today's NaBloPoMo prompt is "What makes your heart leap?" I feel as though I need to change my "What Makes You Jump For Joy" post from a couple of days ago because these are actually two different reactions/emotions, but, I won't. I'll just share with you something I posted to Facebook yesterday. My boys were both enjoying their own bowl of grapes and the instant Captain Fussybuckets ate the last grape out of his bowl, Baby D picked it up, climbed up on the chair to the sink where the bowl of grapes were [...]

This picture was taken when Baby D was only a few weeks old. I'm so blessed to have two little boys who have always loved and adored each other! (now let's just hope it stays that way!)
Oh how our boys are different! Here they are, both at 14 months. The Captain obviously preferred no clothes and a spatula and Baby D likes to be warm and have a paci and Daddy's hat while riding this horse…which I might add, is one of their favorite toys!
