Spring Break 2015!

Spring Break this was a lot of fun!  And soooo needed!  It was wonderful to sleep in until 7-7:30 every morning.  So so wonderful!  But there's something to be said about a schedule and routine.  I get so much more accomplished when I have to get the boys up and ready so Jackson can get to school on time.  Plus, we get to spend the morning with Jim when we all get up early. ...but sleeping in a little was so nice.

Here's some of the fun we had during our spring break:
Monday was kind of a loss because the boys were acting a little crazy and I was very tempted to sell them all to the highest bidder on Ebay, so we won't talk anymore about Monday...
Tuesday: First, it was St Patrick's Day.  The boys were so stoked for St Patrick's day for the chance to pinch people who weren't wearing green.  They're a sadistic bunch.

The Science Spectrum! The boys hadn't been in awhile, so we let them loose to play and explore.

I completely forgot that they have a little a…

Happy birthday, Big Poppa!

I remember looking at this handsome boy when he was born.  He had such dark features.  Austin was born with dark hair and dark eyes, and I remember being so excited that I had a baby with dark features.  I remember looking at his perfectly round little face and thinking how grateful I was for him.  Jim and I had really struggled with infertility and we were ready to start really invasive fertility intervention when we found out I was pregnant.  Austin has been such a blessing, a miracle, since the moment we knew he was on his way to us.

Austin has always been a little snuggler.  He loved to be held as a baby, which was a total contrast to Jackson.  I loved every minute!  I loved being able to rock him and love him and stare at him.  Jackson was such a drastic life change for me and everything was so new that I don't feel like I took the time to stare at him and smell him and memorize him as I did with Austin.

Austin has always been silly and he LOVES attention.  He loves all eyes…
