Remember when we went to Sweetfields Farm last year?

In case you need a refresher, click here. :)

I absolutely LOVE this place.  The jury is still out as to whether Bennett likes it or not, but I know Remy had a great time!  Bennett is definitely testing us with his two-year-old tantrums and frustrations lately.  He is still learning to communicate what he wants and needs, and sometimes when he <<finally>> decides he is ready to enjoy a moment, everyone else is ready to move on to the next fun thing.  Being a new mom to a toddler is a tough thing.  I haven’t learned the best way to discipline my child yet, he pretty much dictates how things are going to roll… and sometimes this can be pretty embarrassing.  BUT we will get past this, and hopefully I can look back some day and say to myself, “you did a good job, mama!” HA! Hopefully…

Back to the subject at hand, Sweetfields!  This year the treehouse playgrounds were a BIG hit for Bennett.  He must have went up the steps and down the slides a hundred times!  He wanted nothing to do with the horseback riding, nor the tricycles, but the antique tractor was definitely a favorite again, as you can see from the pictures.  Remy enjoyed looking at all the animals & standing in the pumpkins.  Every day he becomes more animated and fun loving!

The weather was much nicer this year, we had a little breeze and it was slightly overcast.  I remember last year being pretty brutal with the heat.  We all enjoyed the fresh popped kettle corn again- so good!  And had some pretty awesome photo ops of course!  This farm is so much fun, and I’m hoping it becomes our little tradition every year!


Remington James :: Four Months Old

I was reading the post from Bennett’s four month update, and as I was catching up, I could not believe all the similarities. Remy is rolling from front to back, back to front. He is giggling and coo-ing for anyone and everyone. He’s a great eater (at least 32 oz. a day!). By this age, Bennett was already playing in the Jolly Jumper, but I haven’t felt as confident putting Remy in it yet, only because he doesn’t hold his head up quite as well as Bennett did. But he is getting there. We have been doing much more yummy time and he is lifting his head much higher than before. Maybe within the next week or so he can try some of Bennett’s old activity toys.

According to his measurements from the pediatrician, he is 16.13 lbs and 28 inches long. The medical assistant couldn’t believe how long he was, she made me lay him out again so she could remeasure. Sure enough she was accurate. 28 inches! Gonna be a tall dude!  Remy has officially found his toes and loves to play with them.  I haven’t caught him with his foot in his mouth yet, but I’m sure it’s going to happen soon!

This little guy loves looking at himself in the mirror, can grab things that are in front of his face, he is starting to sit in a bumbo for small periods of time, and enjoys hugging a lovey.  He loves to kick his legs as hard as he can, enjoys listening to music, and finds the water features of the pool soothing enough to sleep to.  He is so precious!

In the middle of our little photoshoot this afternoon, we had an unexpected photo bomber!  Good thing he’s cute ;)

Gah!  I love these babies!  So freaking much!


Happy Valentine’s Day!

True love is when a mom has her first attempt at matching her boys pajamas for a super cute picture on Valentine’s Day and they are NOT having it… all patience and joy evaporates in an instance, yet somehow, the mom just doesn’t care and posts the photos anyway… yep, that’s true love.
