The past two months have flown by, I can't believe it. I feel like I'm always saying that though. Cooper is going to be 9 weeks on Tuesday. So far, adjusting to being a mommy of two has been fun and difficult at the same time. There will be moments of the day when its really hard or crazy, and then there will be many other moments of the day when its very relaxed and quiet. One minute Cooper might be crying to be held or fed, and Brayden might also be crying about something and it will be loud and intense. Another minute they will both be sleeping and it will be so quiet! One thing that is different this time around is that I haven't been able to take as many naps as last time. Most of the time I don't get a nap in, but with Brayden I would usually nap at least once a day. Surprisingly I've been able to function ok without them. Somehow I just keep going on with the day and what I have to do and it works out. I've also been potty training Brayden the past few weeks. I took off his clothes and let him hang out around the house naked for a few days. He had a few accidents on the floor (as I expected-and had planned for), but I think that was a little eye-opening for him of how it felt to need to go. Now he will usually tell me when he needs to go, (or I just take him so he can try to go). I wish I could post a pic of him in his cute dinosaur underwear, but I thought that might be a little weird for anyone who's not us or his grandparents. But trust me, he is cute in them. He's also been loving Cooper and is really sweet to him. He calls him "Baby Super". Not on purpose, thats just how he says it. So cute. :) Here are some of my favorite pics of the past two months:

This is a pic I just had to throw in here although it seems a little out of place. Brayden's daycare had a little party for us and our teamates because we will be moving soon and won't see them anymore. They brought kimonos for us to try on and had a traditional Japanese tea ceremony for us. It was so sweet, and wearing the kimono was so fun!

Lol! Cooper looks just like Mike! Love that first pic. And Brayden has gotten SO big and SO cute! He has HAIR! :) Just in time to become a big brother, huh? :) Thanks for the update. Can't wait to see you in a couple months!

This is so random, but I found your blog through Amy Finch's blog and recognized one of your posted pictures with the Chase family. I went to school with
Kacie for a few years in Indiana- how crazy.

Oh Erin, the boys are so very handsome!! I'm glad to hear everyone is doing well. I hope that at some point our paths will cross again and we'll get to see each other. Good luck with the potty training. By far my least favorite thing I've done with Vincent. :) Can you believe that cute little baby that pooped on Mike's leg is now three and goes horseback riding! And you have TWO, wow time goes so fast. Wishing you and yours the best!!

Lots of love,
Lauren (In AZ)
