Lately I've been feeling pretty lucky to have these two little guys in my life. I realize that I have those days when I take things for granted...but I've been trying to appreciate every hug, conversation, snuggle, kiss, "love you's" and moment that I get to hang out and care for my little guys.

Oh sweet Damon. You are hilarious, fun, brave, caring, and have an infectious personality.


You are oh so sweet....sure do love you.
You are so much fun, and extremely photogenic
Your brother LOVES you so much, and wants to be wherever you are, and doing whatever you are doing....

I love how much these two love each other.

My darling are the HAPPIEST kid I have ever known. You find so much happiness in any stuffed animal, book, bite of food, toy, or anything else for that matter. You love to cuddle, dance, hum, growl, and laugh at your big brother....

I love that EVERY morning when I sit down to eat my cereal, I suddenly have a little friend trying to climb on my lap to enjoy it with me. (picture taken this morning)

And even with an ongoing ear infection (going on for more than 2 months, seeing an ENT next week) - you are still the most pleasant, well behaved, mellow, happy, child. You even smile at me while pulling on both ears...just dealing with the pain. I sure do love you too.

A Weekend....

A few weekends ago Brixton and I joined a big group of friends (Thank you Heather, Jeff, Dana, Richard, Amy, Larry...etc...) for a fabulous day out at Cox Farms.....

I like Brixton's little profile.

While we were there.... Mike took Damon were here for a couple of days, so that he could do this.....

This was the first day. After the second day...Damon could barely walk (I'm not kidding) ! It amazes me how naturally this comes to him. The video works better if you can make it full screen since it is taken vertically....Check out how he catches air after going down the first ramp.

I wish I was creative, crafty, cute, dedicated, ambitious, and as talented as those of you who have etsy shops. I thought I'd do a little post to pass on a few of my friends etsy sites.... You really really should look these up. They have such cute stuff at really really great prices!

Siena.... makes gorgeous clutches, wallets..and other cute little things......she just added a bunch of new ones! I need to order one of these!

A long long time friend of mine, Celia, makes AMAZING hats! So adorable! I love these.

A very good friend of mine, Chantel, makes amazing jewelry with a friend of hers's the link.

When I had the idea to do this post, I thought I'd have more links to share with you.....I'll find them....

Brixton's traumatic haircut.....

For those of you who have not seen the pics on face book....Here are some pics of my sweet little Brixton before the....duh duh duh.....HAIRCUT. I knew Mike was going to cut it, and I knew he was going to use his shaver thing....(but we NEVER did this to Damon, so I honestly had no clue how short those things actually cut, how naive of me) -

the wispy look....
the sweepy look....
and my favorite....the sweet little curls!
(I have a bad feeling that they will NEVER grow back) - I think that is what breaks my heart the most.

Here is our boy, with a buzzed head.

Even though he is still the exact same little boy, I look at him and feel like he is a different person! Am I nuts?!

When did this happen?!

damon @ 2 months old....
(picture taken almost exactly 5 years before his first day of school)

Seriously....where have the last 5 years of my life gone?! Damon started kindergarten last week, which in Maryland is all day long. (Is it all day in Utah?) He is gone from 8:20 until 3:30. This has been a life changing experience for me, obviously as it should be, and is for everyone. It's hard not to know what he is doing all day, if kids are being nice, if he is listening, if he is having fun, if he's worried, scared, or just fine (which I know is how he feels).

After his second day of school I told him that I missed him, I asked if he missed me too, and he seriously said "No, I forgot about you". I'm not sure I want him to like school that much!

If I knew how to do one of those collages I would...these are the many faces of my Damon....

Ready to roll
Made it there
Damon tries every morning to get in the soccer game with all the big kids. He has no fear.
Lining up....

One last pep talk from Dad
say bye to your brother! so sad.

life. is. changing.

Trip to Myrtle Beach....duh duh duh....

The following are the ONLY pictures that I have from our week long trip to Myrtle most of you know....I had a bit of bad luck during the trip, with my diaper bag being stolen right off of my beach chair....which of course, had my camera in it. So here are the only pics from the trip....(taken from cell phone)

Is blogger being funky for anyone else? I upload the pictures....and then just see the jibberish codes in the posting page.

Mike :)


This was a really good golf shot that Mike made and he was so happy with it, that he took a picture to show me. Since it's one of the only pics from the entire trip, I couldn't NOT post it. :)

Damon's Skate Park Birthday Party

Damon's birthday was at the end of June, but his party was a little delayed, and we just celebrated with his friends last weekend. We rented out a skate park (not my idea, although it all worked out fine), and all of his little friends brought bikes, scooters, skate boards, and whatever else they wanted to ride around on.....

It was ridiculously hot and expected in mid-July in Washington DC....but the kids didn't seem to mind!

Yes, we got all the kids in a picture. Crazy
Can you find Brixton?

Go Cindy! Our sweet sweet neighbor

Ellie was such a good sport!
