easter morning.



party in a box.

grandma sharon sent brooklyn an easter basket FILLED with yummy goodness. and while b loved her treats, we think she preferred playing in the empty box that the basket came in!!


and then the sun came out, and all was well.

mohawks and other madness

we've been having a fun couple of weeks IN THE HOUSE because it's either too rainy, cold, or windy to go outside. sigh. but no don't worry, we have been hanging inside, having a blast. here are a few images of our little guy rocking his mohawk, and brooklyn stealing his toys.

a little big for her these days!

baby parts.

there's no place like home.

soren is home with us, and we could not be happier. he is such a sweet, cuddly, easy little boy. brooklyn is thrilled to have him home. we didn't know how she would react to having him with us, but she has been an absolute angel toward him! she LOVES him, and makes sure he is well taken care of. if he cries, she goes over to him and gives him a pacifier and pats him until he stops! she frequently checks on him to make sure he is okay. and when she wakes up in the morning, the first words she speaks are "where's baby?" i have a feeling these two are going to have a lot of fun together!

we are blessed.

preparing to go home

we took our little guy home on friday - 3 weeks before his due date! here we are getting him ready to make his grand exit...

daddy's little girl

anyone who knows me knows i am a daddy's girl. my father is my best friend, always has been, always will be. i have a special place in my heart for daddy's and their daughters. so when i see my husband with our daughter, i melt. i am so grateful that i married him - not only because of how much i love and adore him - but also because of the incredible father he is to our beautiful little girl. she will grow up knowing how she should be treated by men because of his love for her. what a gift.

Brooklyn holds her little brother

Brooklyn was very excited to hold Soren at the NICU over the weekend. She's going to be a great big sister! As for Mr. Soren James, he is over 5 pounds now and growing fast. He is also taking full feedings several times a day and the nurses think he'll be home in the next few weeks. We are very much looking forward to that day. Stay tuned for Coming Home Party details!

Sleeping and growing

Happy almost spring, everyone! Sorry for not posting about Soren in the past three weeks; I have kind of gotten sucked into the Facebook vortex and update that more frequently these days.

So here is a brief list of skillz Soren has acquired in recent weeks:

1) Coming off CPAP and breathing without any tubes!
2) Moving from an incubator to a big kid crib where he gets to sport all his new duds.
3) Surpassing the 4 pound mark, heralding the arrival of his second chin.
4) Breastfeeding with mom for the first time without one spell.

Here are a few photos of his NICU adventures over the past few weeks.
