Happy Mother's Day!

Let me just begin this post by telling you how much I love Mom-Mom and GranDee. My mom came the week J.D. was born to help, and Jim's mom came last weekend. I cannot say how much it meant to me for them to come! Because of my c-section and hernia surgery, taking care of two kiddos has been more difficult than I thought. But I was so thankful to have not only one, but two sweet moms who would be willing to come and help us. Thank you both so much! We love you so much and hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day!

Here are a few pictures from the past couple of weeks. Anna Lee is still loving being a big sister. She loves talking to J.D., kissing him, and holding him. I have been waiting for her excitement about him to wear off...but it hasn't happened yet.

"Hmmm...let me see..."

Look at those cheeks! As of yesterday, he got really bad acne on them. I am not sure what to do about this...especially since we are having his portaits made on Tuesday. I am hoping it will go away soon.

J.D. is one chilled out little fellow. When he is awake, this is pretty much his normal demeanor.

Until sponge bath time. This has been his least favorite part of the day.

But he seems to feel like it is always worth get to be wrapped up in a towel at the end. I love hooded baby towels!

Well, Happy Mother's Day everyone!

I am so thankful to have these two little ones to celebrate this year.

And Happy Mother's Day to you!

I love those kids!

Ryan has said about 1,000 times this week, "We should go get Anna Lee...she wants to go get a donut." I'm like, really, did yall talk on the phone earlier?

Too cute! I remember Shaye came around to liking baths very quickly once she could actually be down in the warm water. Sponge baths were just too cold!

I'm so glad Anna Lee likes being a big sister. And I particularly love the picture of her and Jim at the back door. There's just something precious about a dad with his little girl in her hat, ready to have some fun.
