Braxton's Art Work

Braxton has been drawing so many pictures lately, and I don't know what to do with this stack of art!   My fridge is full... my walls are starting to fill, and as any parent knows, It's kinda hard to throw away these pictures. Well I was reading this thing ( I know, I had time to read!!) and It said to scan artwork into your computer and so you just have a disk of artwork for like each year that you can go back and look at!  Great idea I thought so here is the first one!  This one is of our Family :)

Here I am!

Braxton at the Parade... somewhere there is a pic of him a couple years ago at the parade eating licorice!  I tried to find it so I could put them both on here...  Mom do you have it still?

I know it has been awhile... we have been a bit busy : )  So I left Braxton at the restaurant yesterday so I could do a Costco run...  and I was walking through the busy intersection right out front of the store holding the car seat and my clutch fell and popped open!   Stuff everywhere...  and it was windy so everything started flying!!!   I was just standing there in the middle of the road in shock, trying to decide if it was really worth it to run all over in the street dodging cars holding the car seat, and this man comes up behind me and handed me my phone (that I didn't know I had dropped ) and starts grabbing things off the ground.  I told him that I loved him... I know, a little drastic, but thank you didn't seem enough to express how I felt : ) So that was Yesterday. Tomorrow we are off to the Lost River Winery to check it out, because we are doing a catering thing there next month.   Baby Oliver went to the Doc last Friday and was 6lbs!  Way to grow honey

This morning we went to La Conner with Preston and Erin...  Baby's first trip to La Conner!   Then we went and made pasta at the restaurant...  then we came home to meet Braxton!!!  I MISSED HIM!!!  We played outside,  Alberto did some gardening and fixed Braxton's rope swing, then we had tacos...  now we are going to bed!!!  Did I mention what a great dad Alberto is to both our boys???   He has been drawing with Braxton, changing about 40 diapers a day, cleaning the kitchen, folding laundry, working at the restaurant, and giving me tons of love :)

I Just cried a little...

...when we dropped off Brax at his dads house.  He is my baby... and I am worried he doesn't feel as loved... I know...  but he has always been #1 and I never want him to feel like he is anything else.  He wanted to take a picture of his brother with him so he could show everybody, it was VERY cute.

ahhhh... sleep is such a beautiful thing :)

I am ready for the world!   I am rested, showered, I got to blow dry my hair!!!  Braxton is off to school and my honey is off to work... I miss them like crazy, as always, but it is nice to get back into a routine.  We went to the doctor on Monday and everything is great... Oliver is a little jaundice, and down to 5lbs 4oz.  I still can't believe he is here, and this is our new wonderful family :)

Oh my goodness...

It is 5:48... I have been awake since 2:30 with this little guy, and B will be up for school in about an hour and a half...  not really enough time to get any asleep so I guess I will be napping today :)  Oliver was up all night SCREAMING...  Alberto was sure he was dying...  I tried to assure him that is just what babies do sometimes.   I think I will go make Cinnamon Rolls for Brax and Get ready for the day...  I will get more pics on soon!  OXOX Jenny

Mothers day!

Braxton is Amazing!!!  He loves rubbing his brothers back and head, and will let me know right away if Oliver is sad and needs me :)  Alberto went to the store yesterday, and I had both my boys... it was so weird and great to have both these perfect little men snuggled up next to me :) We haven't been sleeping much, and whoever said "sleep when they sleep" is still crazy!  That's when you do laundry, dishes, check your email and update your blog!   We will get him out into the world next week for visits so everyone can see our new little guy :)

Oliver Andrew Costante is here... FINALY!!!

It was perfect...  We went in on Thursday night to the hospital and my contractions started at about 7am on Friday... Oliver was born at 9:34am!  Alberto was AWESOME... rubbing when I needed rubbed, and backing off when I needed some space...  I love this man... and I really have the best most handsome perfect boys EVER!  We are all doing great, just trying to get settled in as a family at home and getting some MUCH needed rest :)  He was 5 pounds 12 oz, but when we went home today he was 5 pounds 5 oz, he is SOOOO small!

Update... NOTHING!

But I am not frustrated at all, and am handling this very well  :)  I started having contractions on Thursday night... they got to every  three minutes about a minute each so we went in to the hospital at 7 am Friday and they said I still wasn't progressing though, so to go home and come back when they get stronger or closer together.  About 2pm they just STOPPED!  They started again about 6pm, but when I woke up on Saturday, they were GONE!!!  What is going on??? Believe me I will let EVERYONE know when this happens...   I just feel like curling up and having cuddle time with my baby Brax until this new one comes.
