On Monday, I got my highlights touched up and decided to get bangs cut. I figured, it would take some getting used to but I needed a change. Well, when Kelsie cut them, I loved them right away. I was quite surprised. Sorry for the bad picture, but I just used my computer camera.


Also a little update on the boys…

Cole has been saying so many more words lately and is also learning his colors. He also poses for maybe a second when I ask him to say “Cheese.” These are a few of those pictures…



Cole loves water. He knows how to climb up our bar stools and get on the counter, so I tell him the only time I will let him up there is when I can be there. I also felt a lot more comfortable with his feet in the sink so he wouldn’t stand up on the counter and fall, so this is how it started…


And this is how it ended…


Will is getting bigger each day. He is such a sweet boy. The only thing we are really working on right now is letting him cry himself to sleep. I hate it.

Here are a couple of new pictures of him.



Saturdays are Brian’s gardening and fix things days. This last Saturday, he had Cole help him fix the water pipes? outside. Here they are together…

Las Vegas Weather

For the most part, I like Las Vegas for its weather. The times I don’t like it, I REALLY don’t like it. Those times would be: windy days and days that are over 105 degrees. Before the last two windy days this week, our weather was quite nice. It was about 75 or 80 degrees on Monday, so I borrowed my mom’s sprinkler that attaches to the hose and let Cole play. This is the result…

Cole sure is a funny boy. He knows how to please a crowd. The other day he put Brian’s shoes on and I thought it looked funny, so I asked him to smile for me. This is what I got.

Will is a little different then Cole when it comes to rowdy-ness (is that a word?) He prefers softer voices and people. Poor boy has a loud mother so that doesn’t really work well when I am feeding him and trying to show excitement for Cole. We are working on it. Meanwhile, he loves people who are soft with him, like Grandma Tobler. She softly rocked him back and forth in her hands and h fell asleep (which never happens).

I also like this one of Will and Brian. Sorry about the red eyes on Will, it looked funny when I made them black since he wasn’t facing right on.

Also on a side note; I had seen lots of diaper cakes before and thought they were adorable, so for my cousins bay shower, I made one. This was the result.

Will is a big boy

I took Will to his 2 month appointment today. I know he started out as a big boy weighing 9 lbs. 7 ounces, but at his appointment today, he weighed 14 1/2 pounds. Yikes. My little boy is HUGE.

I have been trying to get some pictures of Will but the poor boy has had rashes on his face. He has very sensitive skin. It is clearing up a little bit so I have been taking as many pictures as I can. Here are a couple of my favorite.

Cole loves being a big brother. Anytime Will is crying, Cole will come over to console him. He says, “Baby, baby.”

Last night, we did a little Easter egg hunt with friends at the park. This is one of the pictures and I thought it looked like an Abercrombie ad for children’s clothing.
