So...we had a kid.

I've determined I have no future as a serious blogger.  It's been probably six months since my last post.  In that time, we've celebrated four major holidays, rang in a new year, had a kid and I turned 30.  That about sums it up.  ;)  Enjoy the pictures!

This little guy became a big brother this year - Yay!

Nicholas Kenneth DiNardo - born January 29, 2014 at 12:47pm - 7lbs 15oz 19.5in long


Brand new

The first picture of Daddy with his boys.  Excuse the mask on Sam.  It was flu season and the hospital has a strict procedure for child visitors wearing masks.
The first picture of me and my boys <3
Me and my little Spud Muffin got lots of quality time together at the hospital because Daddy had to be home with Sam.  It was nice to have that time, but it was also SO nice to go home and be with both my boys.  I'm so happy I was able to leave the hospital the day after delivering!  A completely different experience than having Sam when we got stuck in the hospital for five days due to a slight case of jaundice.

Brand new fingers and toes <3

"I got this"
Cole's first time to the park - big brother loves pushing the stroller.

Such a sweet Daddy
This carrier has been my LIFE SAVER having the two boys.  I used it a little with Sam, but it was a necessity this time around.  LOVE IT!

So...Nicholas was a colicky baby.  That was fun.

My two sweetest Valentines

Six weeks old

My cuddle bug

Sam LOVES cuddling with his brother in his crib

These pictures just touch the tip of the iceberg for how good of a brother Sam is to Nicholas.  If his binky pops out, Sam rushes to put it back in - he is always trying to soothe Nicholas and loves talking to him and cuddling with him.  He really has blown me away with how much he's embraced the role of 'big brother'.  He's such a caring and loving guy.  I love this kid so much!

My silly monkey

Sam turned two and became Mr. Personality.  He is a comedian, a master negotiator, a car enthusiast, at times a gymnast, a crafter (especially if the craft involves food lol), a great conversationalist, a train hobbyist, a backseat driver, and occasionally, if I'm lucky, a cuddle bug.  This kid is hilarious.  I love watching him grow into his own.  Life is getting very fun.  :)

Two months old!  :)

First bath together!  This was one of those parenting moments I was really looking forward to having the two boys so close in age.  I remember being really little and having so much fun with my sister in the bath playing and splashing around.  One of the sibling moments in life that bring back such good memories.

Running errands has become quite the challenge.  I know it will get easier, eventually...hopefully...but right now, it is insane how difficult simple tasks have become.  ;)

First time in the exersaucer

So there you have it.  A very very brief, and not very thorough, catch-up for all that has happened in the last several months.  As always, I will vow to blog more frequently, but no promises.  ;)
