Catching up...


We have been pretty busy since my last post...life with two is pretty crazy, but also pretty great! 
This was a VERY sad day...after being with us nearly 4 weeks she finally had to leave :(  I cannot even begin to thank my mom enough for all of the help!  It really made the transition to two kids a lot easier!!!  Thank you soooooo much mom (and dad for letting us have her!)!  I love you both so much!  We all cried, but Will was the most pitiful - he just bawled!  It was upsetting!  
Poor little guy...I had no idea he would be so upset!
Will and Daddy playing with his marble race...they love this thing!
Michael had a nice long weekend off so we took Will to the zoo one day and had so much fun!  Quinn was a trooper as well!  The weather was perfect!
Checking out the elephants...could my hair be any stringier (sp?) - seriously!
Checking out the giraffes...
Will and mommy...
Driving the zoo jeep...
Reading about snow leopards....
On the carousel...
Having a blast!
We had a cookout with our neighbors and Will ate so much junk!  Cupcake #2
Those fireworks were bright!
The fam on the 4th....
Love this one...
Quinn's nursery...

Quinn at 1 month!  She is so sweet!

That is so sad about Will! My mom stayed a long time with us too and I was sad when she left. Quinn's nursery is so sweet and she is just a doll. I think she looks like you. It will get better and better. The hardest part for me was the different nap schedules and right when I would get Will down and lay down and fall into a deep sleep, Walker would wake up. Also, did you seriously just have a baby?? There is no evidence. You look great!

Great new pictures! You look fantastic - love the family picture. Quinn's room looks so sweet - you did a great job. I love her little ruffled curtains. Can't wait to see you guys next week!

I am sure your mom was sad to leave too. I am glad she got to stay with you all for so long. Quinn is adorable. The nursery is so cute. Glad you all are doing well.

oh, yeah, Mary Paul has the same marble toy and she loves it...almost as much as Bryan. I can't stand all the pieces it has because it means more pieces to clean up.

I know that was so hard for your Mom as well. I bet your Dad was glad to have her back though. ;) Love the nursery! And she looks so cute & big already in her little chair.
