Happy Valentine's Day a little early

Stationery card
View the entire collection of cards.

Just ordered a free Valentine card from Shutterfly using the code CARD4U, and I thought I would share it with you.

It is an exciting time here at the Axe house. Both boys are really something.

Some funny/interesting things with the boys as of late are:

  •  Brady is almost 15 months old, he has 13 teeth, he has been waking since he was 11 months old. And he has a temper. He will headbutt or try to hit me when he is frustrated. He still has his amazing blue eyes and he is still pretty much bald.
  • Brandon is over 3 1/2 years old, and he is in preschool and loving it. Discipline is our concentration with him currently. So not fun. He is learning so much, I am so proud of him. 
Glad to get to post in 2013. Yippee!!!

Until then,

What a difference 6 months can make?

 Brady is now 6 months old, and we are having fun!!

He is such a great baby!! He is fitting into our family nicely. He is wearing size 3 diapers, 9 month clothes, and he weighs 17 lbs. and is 27 inches long. He got his first tooth a couple of days before he turned 6 months and the second tooth appears just a couple of days later.

Brandon has enjoyed being a big brother, he is a big helper. Brady looks a lot like my baby pictures. I think Brady will keep his blue eyes, he has a sliver of brown at the top of his left eye so I guess that makes him an extra special blue eyed boy. Brady can roll over, sit up unassisted for long periods of time, and he gets on all fours and rocks so he might be crawling before I know it. He is now sleeping a little better, he goes 7-9 hours between feeding at night. He has started rice cereal and is taking to is nicely.

He just makes me smile when I see him, especially when he flashes a smile. He gets that from his Daddy. His personality is pretty easy going, and he is a Mama's boy.

Until then,

New Arrival and Twinkies

We welcomed our new baby boy on October 25, 2011. He was 9 1/2 pounds and 20 inches long.

Brady Lane Axe

We got Brady's name from a former Razorback Baseball player that is now a Christian singer, songwriter. And Brady's middle name is Lane and that is my Grandma T's maiden name.
Brady sleeps in our room in a bassinet, and he goes 2-3 hours between fee
dings with 2 stretches of 5 hours each day.
Brady Lane Axe will be 12 weeks old tomorrow and he has been a super baby. As far as stats for him now his is over 13 pounds. He is wearing size 2 diapers, and size 3-6 months clothes. He laughs and smiles a lot. His brother, Brandon, asks to see him all of the time. The trick with both boys is giving Brady the attention he needs (diaper change, nursing, and rocking to sleep) while trying to give Brandon the attention he wants and needs.

We have had lots of holiday fun with the boys this year. I was a scrooge and did not even put up a Christmas tree this year.
I thought I would put up the boys newborn pictures and see if you all can pick out which one is which.

Too much fun!!! The top picture is the scrawny Brandon, and the bottom picture is the fluffy Brady.

Well, Brady is awake from his nap so I better check on him.

Until then,

Fast Summer

We had a fast summer this year, it could be that I don't feel like we really enjoyed the summer because we stayed inside so much because of the heat. Or, maybe time is passing faster for me.

A few things we had go on this Spring/ Summer was I went on an overnight Girls Night Out to Oklahoma City in May. I was only 16 weeks pregnant at that point so traveling was still pretty comfortable. We took off on a Friday afternoon, eat lots of food, and shopped 'til we dropped, then came home on Saturday evening.

Then on June 10th we had the baby gender reveal party at my parents' house. We are having a BOY!!! I am so glad. His name will be Brady Lane.

Then we spent parts of three weeks of June and July in Branson at my parents', Jeremy's parents, and our time shares. We played at the pool some, went to Silver Dollar City some, but mostly stayed indoors where it was cool.

We did go to the Springfield zoo twice this summer. It was just the right size zoo. Brandon enjoyed seeing all of the animals. And I think the grandparents enjoyed the zoo too.

While in Branson, we only go out to eat once or twice so we are happy to be out at a restaurant.

The Branson Landing is a fun place to walk by Lake Taneycomo and to see the shops.

Being out in the sun, wears us out. We made sure a nap was on the agenda most everyday.

VBS is always a highlight of the summer and our theme was Pandamania.

The middle of August my parents, Brandon and I went to the Tulsa Aquarium. And it was great. I loved that it was inside and cool, Brandon enjoyed seeing all of the big, brightly colored fish.

I attempted to make Brady a sweet pea gown with his name on it today, and well, my spacing did not go as planned, but I got it made.

Until then,

New bedroom flooring

I know it doesn't get more interesting than seeing someone's new flooring, but this is what I got. We have lived in our house for almost 13 years and we have never changed the flooring in our bedroom. So, after several months of trying to decide what type of flooring to put in this room, we finally came to the decision of porcelain hardwood looking tile. It is from Interceramic, and the color is Golden Saddle, style Timberlands. It has a real antiqued hardwood floor look and I love it.

So I have the look of hardwood, but the upkeep of tile. A perfect combination for me. Now, we just need to get the furniture moved back in this room so I don't have to sleep in the living room another night.

We have an exciting month coming up with Brandon's 2nd birthday party at the end of the month, so I have a lot of planning to do. It should be fun.

Until then,
