Harrison is 2 months!

Harrison is such a good, sweet baby!  UNTIL I take out the camera for monthly pictures.  He's only 2 months so we've only tried this twice, but both times, my usually perfect, smiley baby turns into Mr. Cranky Pants who wants nothing to do with pictures or cameras or mommy, for that matter.

Here's his 1 month photos:

This was the first picture I took- this might not be too bad!


Here's how ALL the rest of the pictures turned out-


I actually loved how the crying picture came out.  It's how he was feeling.  Frustrated with mommy and her silly camera.

And then it was time for 2 month pictures.  I was excited!  He had a little football outfit, perfect for the season, and I was going to stage a little photo session with Jim's Patriot's helmet.  It was going to be ADORABLE!  But once again, Harrison wasn't having it...

2 months:

These are the first two pictures I took.
This just might work...



And then the screaming commenced...



Ok, this one ^^^ is just adorable!

I needed a new plan.
Just holding him wasn't working.  He would not be soothed.
So I thought, what makes my babies calm down 99% of the time?
Swaddling!
And guess what?  It worked!
Instant happy baby.


So I took pictures with him swaddled.
I didn't get the cute seasonal baby football pictures that I wanted, but at least he was happy!
I even got a smile or two-

Harrison Blake Nuffer, 2 months.


A little about Harrison at 2 months:
Harrison loves to smoosh his face into blankets, arms, shoulders, boobs, you name it!  He can't fall asleep without smooshing his face into something.  I love this because ALL of his ultrasound pictures were distorted or blurred because he was smooshing his face into the placenta.  Literally smooshing that sweet face.  I think it's really cool that he does it outside the womb too.
Harrison LOVES showers!  Baths were a love/hate thing for him, but showers are always a win.  Even if he's tired and hungry and screaming like a tiny crazy man, if Jim gets him in the shower he is instantly calmed.
Harrison loves to sit up and stand up.  He's not much for lounging around.  I tried to tell him that he's only 2 months old and lounging is kind of a 2 month old thing, but he won't listen.
Harrison really enjoys his activity mat.  Neither of my older boys liked their activity mats, but Harrison will hang out and "play" for 30 minutes +.  I even took a shower while he played on his mat the other day.
Harrison HATES tummy time.  Still.  Just like his older brothers hated tummy time.
Harrison is truly a joy.  Sometimes I just smell his sweet baby smell and hold him tight (which he loves), praying that I will remember his baby smell and the feel of his tiny warm body in my arms.  I know, all too well, that this time doesn't last, and soon he will be a big boy just like his older brothers, so I'm trying to take in all I can of my little caboose while I can.

It's baaaaaaaaaack... The Nuffer Family Summer Camp 2018

Man, it's been awhile.  A long while.

The blog is baaaaaack! And so is the Nuffer Family Summer Camp!!!!!

The NFSC is going to be pretty different this year.  The big boys need to be challenged so much more than a few crafts and story books like when I first started the summer camp many moons ago.  With that said, I don't really know exactly what it will look like because I have to test the waters to see what interests them and what doesn't. My mom gave each of the boys a Little Passports membership, so we'll be using those in our weekly themes as well.  I have a preschooler, a second grader, and a fifth grader- needless to say, it should be interesting.  but no big deal, right?
Riiiiiiiiiight.

Every day they'll spend their mornings doing some chores, spending some time outside, reading independantly, doing a little work in grade-level appropriate workbooks, doing an NFSC activity or two, and I think I'm going to teach the older boys to write in cursive. Phew!

Brian and Whitney get married!

Our family has been waiting for this day for well over a year!  My little brother, Brian, finally married Whitney a couple weeks ago.  Such a wonderful weekend!
I mean, how cute are they?!


The first night was the rehearsal, of course, but I didn't get many pictures.
I do have a fun little story, though...
Jackson was the ring bearer, and Whitney wanted him to walk arm and arm with the flower girl, Delaney.  But, he wouldn't do it.  I thought maybe it was because he didn't know her before that night, but no, that's way too simple for Jackson.  Jackson didn't want to walk down the aisle with Delaney because he thought if he walked down the (wedding) aisle with this stranger-girl, he'd be married to her!  bahahahahahahahaha!  That is hysterical!
Once we assured him that they would not be married if he walked arm and arm with this (super sweet) little girl, he was totally fine with it.
But look at their little faces.  And their little fists.  Hahahahaha!  This is t…

A Whole Lot of Random...

You guys know that my children are crazy.  And hilarious.  And random.
So here's a bunch of random moments from the Nuffer Nest.  Enjoy.
Sometimes, you just feel like Yoshi.

And sometimes, a tiny person steals my phone and takes 458 selfies that look just like this:

And sometimes, mom and grandma spend way too much time at Costco.

Other times, you smash your finger in a door and have to take a "quick" trip to urgent care. At least it wasn't broken.


And sometimes, life just gets hairy...

Other times, the Captain Underpants underwear you just got for your birthday has a cape, so you have to show it off by not wearing pants.

Sometimes, you're as cute as can be when you get a free apple at the grocery store.
(You guys, look at that little round belly- I just want to tickle and squeeze him!)



And sometimes, your brother helps you hang on when life gets tough.

Other times, they're there to give you a hug.

Sometimes, your future is so bright, you have to wear shades.
