Dane's first day of church

Yesterday was the first time we took Dane to church. He was such a good boy, and he looked so handsome.
I think Dane is scared of Cooper in this picture.
Cooper loves getting dressed up for church, he was so excited when we put a tie on Dane too.

Look at all of these handsome boys, I am one lucky lady.

I had to put this last picture on just because Cooper is making the best face ever.

Dane at 3 weeks old

Dane just went to the doctor on Thursday for a follow-up visit. He was one day under 3 weeks old and when they weighed him he was 9lbs 8 oz! I can't believe how fast he is growing he is already starting to outgrow some of his clothes.

Dane 2 weeks old

Mason's Dad took these pictures last Saturday. Thank you so much Allan.
Dane had just had his two week check up, he weighed 8lbs 5oz, and was 21 1/2 inches long.

I love these pictures of the boys together.

Big Brother Cooper

Cooper is loving life as a big brother. It's taken some work to help him understand that he needs to be very gentle with Dane but he is finally getting it. Cooper is so sweet with Dane, he wants to wear matching jammies every night, always puts extra blankies on him, wants to "hug" him all of the time and gets really excited whenever he notices that Dane is awake and has his eyes open. Sometimes Cooper gets upset when other people besides Mommy & Daddy hold Dane, I am so happy that Cooper loves being a big brother and it makes me so excited for the fun years ahead of us.

Whenever Cooper and Dane are on my lap together Cooper says to me "your two boys mommy" he loves it.
This last picture is from today when I was tucking Cooper in for his nap. It had been a really long morning, Cooper had been cranky and Dane was really fussy all night and morning, I was exhausted and didn't know how I was going to make it through the rest of the day. When I tucked Cooper in he was so cute he wanted Dane to lay by him in his bed while I sang to them, and he asked me to help him say a prayer, then when I was about to leave he started begging me to leave Dane in there with him. What a cutie, it's moments like these that make everything we do as parents worth it. I sure do love these two boys.


For Easter we had a great dinner & an easter egg hunt for all the little kiddies at Mason's parents house. It was lots of fun.

Mason & Cooper had fun dying eggs while Dane and I sat half-asleep in the rocking chair.

Cooper loved having his cute aunts here to take care of him

Dane was born Friday, we came home Saturday night. But he had to go back into the hospital on Wednesday for two days. His jaundice was really bad. He had to lay under lights the whole time, the only time we could hold him was to feed him. He had to get an I.V. poor little guy.
