We rode the Christmas train again this year. It's like the polar express train. You wear your jammers, get hot chocolate and sing carols and see Santa himself. We had to be in the pic because Trev didn't want to be with Santa by himself for some reason but it's a good family picture. We had a good time riding the train.
I wanted to be in the spirit for the Christmas train and John and I wear our jammers too! John, not so much. He said we would be the only parents to wear jammers but I didn't care. I convinced him we would be the cool parents and sometimes you have to get on your kids level so you can really bond with them. I eventually talked him in to joining us and we had the best time. I wish I had more excuses to wear my jammers in public. P.S- We were the only adults in P.J's. lol
This is a little backward but, on the way back home the heater went out on the train. We made the boys put their coats back on and bundle up. The condensation on the windows froze inside the train. I was scraping ice off the window so we could see out. Trev does not like to wear his coat so he wasn't a happy camper about it. He also wouldn't open his eyes for pics once the lights went out because the flash of the camera hurt his eyes. Pretty funny.
Cruz has a lot of fun on the train. He smiled and talked most of the time. He is laughing in this picture.
He is so sweet. I love his personality. He is always so happy. All we have to do is look at him and he's smiling at us. He talks already and I know you will think I'm crazy but he coos out "I'm good" all the time.
Trevor was waving at the cars as we passed them. He was so excited!!
Finally, proof that Trevor is my child. Everyone says he looks like his Daddy but I think he look like his Mommy too!!
We picked out our Christmas ornaments for the year. This is one of my favorite traditions we have made for our family. Trevor picks out his favorite one and puts it on the tree. John and I pick one out together every year and of course got to pick one for our sweet new baby boy this year. We (or I) chose the little baby booties for Cruz. They are precious!!
Trevor is really into Batman all the sudden. He picked Batman as his ornament. Last year he picked out this old brown car. He loves the demolition derby and this old ugly brown car looks like a derby car to Trev. I tried to show him all the cute cartoon ornaments but he was dead set on the car. It was really funny and represents the stage he was in at the time.
We had to play with Batman just a little bit before he put it on the tree.
Trevor had to ask Daddy for help him get his ornament in the perfect spot. He is pretty picky just like Daddy.
Hanging up his first Christmas ornament. It seems just like yesterday.
I adore these little sweaters I got for the boys at Gap. Trevor is very into pirates and he thinks every time he sees a skull it's a pirate. For instance the poison control magnet on the fridge is a pirate magnet and just doesn't understand why he can't play with it. Silly boy. So when I saw these pirate sweaters I couldn't pass them up. I knew it would make his day!! Isn't that what all Mom's live for?
Trev LOVES his little bro. I was a little worried how he would handle sharing the attention but he has done amazingly well. In fact, the other day I was feeding Cruz and Trev kissed his head, leaned up, put his hand over his heart and said " I always knew in my heart I wanted a baby". Uh yeah, I got tears in my eyes and thanked GOD for such wonderful babies!!!
Love these shoes my friend Julie got for little man!! Thanks girl!
My little Cruz had his 2 month check up this week. Not a big fan of the check ups because that means we have to get some nasty shots. I hate to see them cry. Cruz didn't like them at all but recouped pretty quickly. By the time I got him dressed and in his car seat he had already fallen asleep. I think it was definitely harder on momma than him.
My favorite thing about going to check ups is to see how were growing and boy are we growing. My little pumpkin is in the 97th percentile on weight and the 95th on height. He is a monster!!!
He loves to smile, talk and laugh!! In fact, Aunt Tiffany was talking to him and saying momma. Cruz was trying to repeat her and was making the "a" sound. He might be an early talker like his brother. So excited to see him develop and grow!!!
John and I have been married 4 wonderful years. We have two handsome little boys, Trevor who is 3 and baby Cruz born on September 22nd 2009. I have never been happier. I am having the best time with 2 boys and can't wait for what God has in store for us. I am using this blog as a journal/scrapbook for the boys. I don't ever want to forget all these sweet memories. My husband is part owner at Time Marketing and I own Teazed Hair Studio in Fayetteville.
