life in pictures - time is flying!

These two are in love. Which is a good thing?!
 Whitty anticipates Madden waking each day. It's cute and annoying all the same.
He wants to SMOTHER him with love...literally!
My daddy dressed me can you tell?
 This picture sums up our relationship
 Playtime is stressful!
 or not!
 this little 3 year old has been giving me a run for my money lately...speaking of I get paid for this job?
 What mom?
 the constant touching...
 car wreckage!!! this is what happens during nursing...or while I am trying to multi-task!
 Whitty has been perfecting his building's cute. He has become quite the perfectionist though! Oh boy!
 And he constantly wants to wrestle!! The minute Jordy walks in the house...Whitty is making the hand motion for contact! His preschool teacher has been having issues with ROUGH play at we have been trying to cut it out...but I believe it is good for boys to get this's just been hard for Whitty to differentiate when rough is okay...taking suggestions!!!
 Just driving up the canyon...

 Big brother celebration at the Emporium (MILKSHAKE  PARTY)
and a little light sabor action afterwards
 Being silly is the name of my game!!!!
 More smothers!
 Whitty and I went up the TARGHEE with Madden in tow a few weeks ago...we got my pass...threw some snowballs...and stomped around in the snow...Whitty was excited to ski...I am debating on whether to sign him up for the preschooler program!

 Look at the "pork chop hairdo"
 Mommy and Madden
 It's a date...we went out on the BIG town of Victor for some food at the new ressie called Station...and then for some DARTS at the brewpub...wish my eyes were open.
 Thanksgiving turkey a family..and look even Wynnie joined us!

 excited about turkey!
 Meeting baby bestie "Anne" had her sweet baby girl...she is 2 days old here!
 The meeting...neither would look in the other's direction!!!
 Whatcha talking about Willis?
 the best...those first few weeks when the baby just "FROGGY" sleeps on it!
 I have been begging for more hooks in the that we could hang more stuff...and so Whitty could reach some hooks too. Jordy did this for me! I love it.
Brother to brother talks
 Sometimes you just have to put your child in a's been done in my classroom and it GETS done at works...try it!
 meanwhile...the angel sleeps!
 and that dang elf keeps messing around here!
 It's all smiles from here on out...right Madden?!
 Well...after 16 years on earth...we decided that Wynnie should be laid to rest. She was old...had lots of tummy trubs...super stiff and had elevated blood was so hard to do. I was in a bit of denial about it for a while until Jordy had to do some work on me. Wynnie now lays to rest in our front berm under the 3 aspen trees. Before she left us...we had a little dog party. We ordered an ice-cream cake that we all enjoyed...even the dogs...and we let Wynnie have as much as she wanted. She went peacefully and happy right beside Jordy and I.

1 MONTH AND other little things.

Madden is 7 weeks today...but I am NOT that far BEHIND!
 After 4 weeks of pretty much EYES closed...Madden has now decided to open them a bit more!

 But he is still a sleepy little guy...Whitty was not this sleepy....maybe it's cuz he's 3 weeks early...
 Seems like everyone is sleepy except for the NIGHT owl mama!
 Sometimes I amaze myself at my ability to carry on. Sometimes I am ONE IMPATIENT person...but mostly with this robot here and my hubs...bummer for them!
 This is becoming a weekend HABIT...making pies...or other little treats...

 This little guy is beginning to look at me but LOVES to look for at AT Whitty McKay Griffin.

 While the wee one sleeps we have still managed to get outdoors. It's not much...but it's something.
 And sometimes I just bring the wee one with me...which he loves...
 And then this is the product of wearing your baby!
 Sometimes we make it out for ice cream...mostly we make it to gymnastics...but I don't have any pictures of that. We have been regulars tho. We go usually every Monday and Tuesday for an hour. It's helps Whitty to get his ya-yas out and for me to get OUT somewhere safe with the baby...and to not feel anxious...
 And sometimes we just VEG out on PBS...thank god for cable right now!
 We are pushing up hard...doing some tummy time...
 Madden loves the occasional swaddle...not always tho. WHitty wouldn't sleep without the swaddle...or the swing...or the shhhhhhhh....or the.....
 THis one just goes to sleep!

Such a snuggle bug. We love these new pjs from Bill and Bev Reed. They are always so kind to send us gifts for both boys all the time. So sweet.
