Joel is three and a half weeks old now. Sometimes it seems like he has been a part of our family for a long time already and other times I sit and am amazed and feel so incredibly blessed to have two wonderful, happy, healthy, cute kids.

I have a friend who told me boys were so much more fun to dress than girls. I smiled but didn’t see how that could be true. Now I understand how much fun it can be to dress little boys too. The trucks, dogs and sports paraphernalia takes some getting used to as I’ve grown accustomed to butterflies, flowers and hearts.

My mom watched the kids for a bit the other day so I could run some errands and I discovered how dangerous it can be to walk into Carter’s without the distraction and time limitations of children in tow when you have a new, sweet little boy at home. Great self restraint is required.

Sometimes when Joel is chilling in his seat, Leah pulls up a chair and hangs out with him. On this particular day, she was taking pictures with her camera and trying to get a shot of both of them.

This is how we visit the park. Leah lets off some energy while Joel sleeps in the Baby Bjorn and we all enjoy the great weather.

Joel rocking his first collared shirt with a mixer truck for Grandpa. I love how Joel is looking right up at my mom.

While Joel is soaking up the cuddles and attention from Grandma and Grandpa, Leah is relishing her chocolate cake and ice cream.

What a great way to spend Saturday morning. Joel had a great nap and Leah sat next to the cd player listening to my favourite kid’s album.
