We had a great Mother’s Day! The boys got me new running shoes and a new camera! I started the morning with a run then we went for brunch at the Park Ridge Country Club! We spent the rest of the day playing outside! Here are some pictures!
Benjamin is already three months old! It is crazy how fast time seems to be moving! He is such a happy baby and enjoys being outside, reading with his brother and even is more tolerable with tummy time now! He is trying hard to roll over. His little hand just gets in the way! He weighed in at 11 lbs 15 oz for his three month visit. He enjoyed his trip to Florida this month as well. Here are some more pictures! Here are some of our favorite pictures of the month!
Today we enjoyed spending the day in the city marching for babies with our PwC friends. Ethan didn’t want to sit in our stroller too long, but Benjamin did great! Ethan much preferred running alongside his buddy Ryan (and trading toys with)! After the race he enjoyed hanging out in the tent with Ryan and Molly, Ellie, and Cullen.
We parked at my parent’s condo so logged a total of 8.3 miles today (the actual walk was 3.2 miles, but adding in the mileage too and from the condo).

We have had a great time on Marco Island for our extended Spring Break! Ethan, Benjamin and I have been here for 11 days and Ben has come and gone for a total of 5 days. We have had a great time with Mimi and Pop pop, Libby and Matt, Grandma and Grandpa Lewis, Mindy and Scott and the extended Lewis family who were down in Marco Island for the first time for Bre and Kelly’s beautiful wedding! Here are some pictures from our trip.
Ethan loved the plane ride. It was his first trip where we bought him a seat and we were upgraded to first class! Not a bad way for Benjamin to experience flying!
As soon as we arrived, Ethan hopped in the pool with Muncle Matt,
Ben and Pop Pop. Benjamin enjoyed tummy time poolside with Aunt Libby, Mimi and I.
Ethan enjoyed playing on the beach with Aunt Libby and Mimi. Benjamin and I sat on the dock and watched.
The boys got dressed up for Bre and Kelly’s pre wedding dinner
The next morning the boys and I went to breakfast with the Lewis’s to celebrate Grandma Dawn’s birthday!
Bre and Kelly’s wedding was beautiful! We had a great time.
Emily and Alex came for the day! We all enjoyed their visit and were sad to see them go back home. Ethan keeps asking for them to come play!
we enjoyed hanging out at the beach and pool
Ethan loved going down the pool slide at the Marriott! He wasn’t tall enough but they let him go down anyway. He was so proud of himself. Benjamin napped in the shade.
when Ben came back yesterday, we took some pictures at the beach
On our last full day we spent the morning at Mackle Park, Ethan’s favorite, and at the pool. It was a great trip!
Benjamin is now two months old! At his two month appointment he weighed in at 10 lbs 14 oz (25 percentile) and 23 inches long (55 percentile). This month he increased his nighttime sleep to between 10-12 hours a night! What a champ! He continues to be on a 3 hr eating schedule during the day.
He hated getting his two month shots.
He is otherwise very happy! Here are some pictures from the month.
We had a great time visiting the Easter Bunny today at Lollipop Seeds! Ethan was a bit skeptical at first, but warmed up when the Easter gave him a present . Benjamin did not seem to think the Easter bunny was strange at all! Here are some pictures from the visit!
Benjamin is now a month old! He is doing great! We went to the pediatrician yesterday and he tipped the scales at 9 lbs 12 oz (44%) and is 21.2 inches long (33%).
He has been nursing well and spending his days doing what little ones do best: eating, sleeping, cooing and smiling! We are having a lot of fun watching him grow and Big Brother Ethan has been a big help with diapers, singing to him and reading him books! It is adorable to see the two interact. Benjamin also enjoys his nightly bath. He has been a great sleeper so far usually giving us between 6 and 9 hours overnight and he is falling into a three hour schedule during the day. He was baptized this month as well! Here are some pictures from this month!
