JJ is all grown up!! One of the BIGGEST reasons why I induced my labor with Jack, was so that I could DEFINITELY be there to see JJ off to his first day of Kindergarten.  We had his assessment the Friday after I had Jack, and although, I was still a bit loopy, I was able to take him to it... thanks to my mom watching the little brothers to facilitate it!  He did so well and his teacher was so sweet with words of praise and encouragement.  I could tell he left with an excitement for the school year.  It was so fun to be there!!
 He picked out his Spiderman backpack with Grandma and was
 Here is the line up of SOME of his friends from the neighborhood that are also in his class. Pretty fun to have so many friends!

 My personal FAVORITE part of the dropoff, was watching JJ voluntarily open the door for all three classes of the kindergartners.  So cute to watch him perform such a sweet service!! LOVE HIM.

Brody will head to preschool NEXT year.. Time sure flies!!!

Welcome to the World, Jack!

So.. it finally happened!! I will not go into all of the details of our precious baby Jack's birth (since I do have a journal and let's face it.. pictures tell a story by themselves!)

Here are the boys loving their brother.  They constantly ask to hold him and help feed him.  They can hold him, but feeding him so far has been my job alone!

Still Pregnant

My boys appeared in my bedroom like this.  JJ took a big sigh and said "It feels like I will NEVER have this baby."

I guess we are ALL getting pretty excited to meet the new baby brother in a few short days!!!

Finished Product

So, I posted about the topiaries I wanted to make and the Ballard Desgin Mirrors I wanted.  Here is the finished product!! I really am loving the added light and cleaner look on top of the piano.  I am feeling like the main floor is done with decorating for awhile.. Now on to all of the upstairs bedrooms!!

Preschool Graduation

JJ is so grown up! This week he graduated from preschool.  These past few months have just hit me like a ton of bricks. I can't believe how quickly time is flying.  When I took JJ to kindergarten orientation, I nearly  broke down thinking about the wide world he was about to enter.  JJ did great up until that night when we let him watch the DVD Miss Kathy sent howe which was a compilation of pictures from the year. He came into my room sobbing that it was over.. so worried that he wouldn't see his friends or Miss. Kathy anymore.  It was a poignant moment for him as he realized a bit about growing up and moving on.. It was maybe more so sentimental for me, his mom, to watch him have those feelings.
Before the graduation, there was a little program, and JJ did so well. WIth each round of applause, JJ tried to hide is grin.  He got to dance "Partner, Partner" with his self-proclaimed "love," Elise.  It was so cute watching him blush as they danced and sung.  I just love this little boy of mine.

Brody watched on with eager anticipation of every song. I have rarely seen him sit so still.  JJ told Brody all about the things that he could expect when he goes to preschool.  JJ is a wonderful big brother and always looking out for Brody (intermixed with teasing him and wrestling).  It isn't hard to see why Brody adores him so much.

 When I think about adding this 3rd boy to the mix, I just melt. I can't believe how fast the time has gone since just 5 Augusts ago JJ entered my world and changed it permanently.  Before Brody was born I couldn't fathom loving anyone with the intensity I felt for JJ.  Then something miraculous happened, and my capacity for love just grew.  They are my entire world!  It is exciting to know that this will happen again when we welcome this new baby boy into our family!
