Calvin is HALF A YEAR OLD!

My big one turned 2 and then two days later my little one turned 6 months old.
Time flies.

Can we just look at this smile:

My goodness this kid melts my heart! He is the friendliest, sweetest little munchkin I ever did know. He makes us ALL laugh over here in the Jones household and puts the biggest smiles on our faces. He still is as quiet and calm as ever - half the time you could walk right by and not notice he were there (believe me, ask my brother and sisters), but once you notice him he will be waiting to greet you with that big, toothless grin!

He is starting to really bounce around in his bouncy seat and his favorite activity is still watching his big brother do anything and everything. Nothing gets him more excited. 

He is a pro at grabbing things - mostly his feet and my hair - and he holds on REALLY tight. His 6 month appointment is on Tuesday and we are excited to see just how large this kid really is because he is already wearing 12 month clothes and he seems a lot bigger than Theo was... and Theo was big...

This month has been busy, busy with parties and events and lots of germs and colds. This next month I will be heading to NYC for the weekend and leaving the boys with dada all by himself for a few days. You think he can handle it?! ;)

I did a week with just the two munchkins so I think he will be just fine!

Theo Lloyd is Two!

Theo Lloyd you are TWO!!!

You have made our life so much FUN these past 2 years! You are a talking, walking, super silly little boy. So long are the days of my chubby baby and here you are, my little human. It has been nothing short of incredible to watch you learn and grow these past 6 months.

I also realized how FUN it is to have a kids birthday party! I loved getting to see all your little friends play and run around at The Little Gym this past weekend for your party. Sure, there was crying and whining and all that normal 2 year old stuff, but on the whole you and your friends were just BEAMING! Ear to ear smiles and laughing! It was such a joy to be a part of :)

Here are some highlights from your birthday weekend:

5 month update on Calvin

My sweet Calvin! 
Last month, your dada and I left for a few nights and you were a peach for Grammy - she loved spending time with you and you rocked your first overnights.

 It feels like not much has happened this past month. Just the normal every day stuff.
wake up. work. eat. sleep. repeat. 

You DID get to enjoy your first football Sunday with the family and while you were asleep for the Pats game, your lucky baby charm must've worn off on the team, because we won!

Next month, your big bro turns TWO. 

For now, that is all I have.

We can all look back and remember that at your 5 month mark, my brain was mush.

Disney World and Calvin Turns 4 Months!

Just last month we were in Disney World sweating our butts off and having the TIME of our lives!

I went down for my annual Teachers Pay Teachers conference and when I heard it was in Disney this year I knew we HAD to go as a family! I was so excited for sweet Theo to see all the characters and go on rides and it was so worth it to pack up both kids and bring them along for the ride.

Here are some highlights from our trip:

Theo was honestly the definition of "the happiest kid on earth" and poor Calvin got his very first cold on the airplane and slept like crap for the first 2 nights making it very difficult to keep my eyes open during my conference. After the first 2 nights he started feeling better, coughing less, and sleeping more, THANK GOODNESS. He was our trooper because, well, he is only 3 months old at Disney... it was 100 degrees... and he had to stay in his stroller for like 85% of the 6 day trip. 

Speaking of that 3 month old....

He is now FOUR months old and has been smiling and giggling all the time!
