4 years and 2 months

I still can't believe that we have 2 kids.  Sometimes I'll be driving down the road, bobbing my head to Jay-Z and then I realize that I have 2 car seats in the back.  oh and I'm over 30 years old.  Times flies, right?  :)

Chase's birthday is tomorrow and he'll be 4.  Preston is now 2 months (or 2 1/2 months).  I had every intention to use those cool little monthly stickers to compare Preston's growth each month.  Well, in true 2nd child fashion, time is getting away from me and now it's 2 weeks later with no 2 month sticker.  But I am taking pictures, so I get points for that, right???

First, I want to talk about how much Preston looks like Chase.  Here's a picture of Chase that was taken when he was around 2 months old:

It's crazy to see the similarities. (For the record, the rest of these baby pictures are Preston...)

Chase continues to be such a sweet, sweet big brother.


Preston continues to get happier and happier.  This little smile makes my heart melt.

His little personality is coming out more and more.  He's been cooing and smiling since around 3 weeks and laughed for the first time this past weekend.

 So far, he's sleeping MUCH better than Chase was at this same age.  We put him down around 8 or 9pm and he'll pretty much sleep until about 6am.  Chase didn't sleep through the night until he was 6 months old.

Here are just a few random but funny pictures that capture life at our house.  Last Saturday, we were having a lazy morning.  I looked over from where I was sitting and this is what I saw:

Here is Preston laying beside Chase's baby that he got when Preston was born.  While I was on maternity leave I started getting pretty frustrated because Chase kept asking me to help him take care of his baby.  There were a few times I felt like I had twins.  Not cool.

In other updates, this is my third week back at work.  Things are going well and everyone seems to be adjusting well.  I'll keep y'all posted.  :)
