Another Photo Shoot

I cant believe my son is already over two months old and that my daughter is nearing three. Time goes by so fast. Here are some pictures my mom took of my kids while she was here.

We had Tyce blessed on June 2 and had a great turn out. Thank you to everyone who showed up to support our family. It really is a great blessing to receive these children that we get to take care of. I love my kids and enjoy my time off with them. I thought Tyce looked like a little stud in his nice outfit. I guess I am a little biased though.

Photo Shoot

We had pictures taken a few weeks ago of our little guy. It took us a while to get them back but they turned out really well. We are really enjoying our new little blessing.

We did have him blessed yesterday and will post pictures soon!


Alivia has been getting used to having a little brother. She is also getting used to our new home. She has had to deal with mommy and daddy working on the house for the past week and a half. A lot of change for a little girl. But now that things have settled down I have started to notice how well she is adjusting.
We have finally worked a routine where she feels like she gets mom time. and Now she feels like she is part of the family when I have to feed Tyce. She loves to hug him all the time and I know that she will continue to understand that Tyce is a great addition to our family.
We went outside to take some pictures and I loved these so much. She played for the camera.
It really shows her fun personality.

Alivia wanted to hold Tyce as soon as she saw him. Then she started kissing him on her own! It was fun seeing the two of them together for the first time.

Daddy was able to give Tyce his first bath!

Tyce was born a little later than expected! We are so glad that he is here. He has been so much fun to hold and play with. I forgot how little babies come and how Alivia really isnt a baby anymore. He weighs 9 pounds but you would never know it because he seems so small. Alivia has adjusted pretty well considering us bringing home a new baby. The hardest thing is that she feels like she is the mommy and wants to be a part of everything no matter what that means. I walked into her trying to change the babies messy diaper all by herself. That was fun! It is great that she enjoys being a part of him and that we are all adapting to the new schedule at home.

Sibling Love

Alivia spends a lot of time holding her brother. She loves to read to him! She has really enjoyed having him around. I was worried that she would feel jealous of him but she has been great with him. She has a hard time when I need to help Tyce but when I include her she does a lot better.
