Gee, Jane, what have you been up to in the last year?? Not much really.

Blog, meet Bennett.....Bennett, this is the blog. (Basically, say hello to Uncle Tam & Katie).

Bennett James arrived three weeks early, on May 17th. After learning he had somehow wrapped the cord around his neck a zillion times, my normal weekly appointment ended with a mad dash home to pack my hospital bag and figuring out who could pick up Alex from Mother's Day Out. It was quite a hectic, but great, day. Bennet was perfect at 6 pounds and 12 ounces, 19 inches. Quite the difference from Alex who tipped the scale at 9 pounds 1 ounce. But God certainly blessed us with a strong baby who came a little early without any health complications or hold ups from going home on time.

Alex isn't sure what to think of Bennett yet. Don't be fooled by this picture. What you can't see are all the cookies I bribed him with to get ONE picture where Alex wasn't licking the baby or that he really isn't smiling as much as he is showing off the half eaten tortilla in his mouth. And he's not wearing pants....because I was the idiot who decided that the first week I was alone with both boys after a c-section, was the week I should potty train Alex.


  1. Ohmygoodness!!! Congratulations, he is perfect! And I love his name. So glad you're alive and crazy enough to potty train right after major surgery, not to mention having a newborn. :) Good luck to you!

  2. Omg!!!!!! You're back!!!! Dying laughing, of course, on your description of the photo shoot! I missed you!!! Love, love the pics!!!! They couldn't be any cuter!!! Can't wait to meet Bennett in person!!! Okay, I ordered Bennett's baby gifts weeks ago but one was custom and had a three week wait and the other ships once a month, so you should be getting them soon. Promise I didn't forget him! Xo! Please blog more!!!!

  3. When I heard your news I wanted to email you & then realized I didn't have your address...
    Congrats on sweet Bennett and holy shit Alex is getting big! Maybe let's get together at some point!

  4. You're back!!! And I'm totally late to the party. Love love the pics! Sweet boys.
