We recently had a BBQ in Bremerton with my fam and my sissy showed us her new camera! What a difference a nice camera makes! Her and Dean are still learning all the lil tricks but some pics turned out great. I especially love this one of my Gma with Sawyer -

Everyone tells me these two look alike, and I must say, we agree!

Friday was Darby's last day at Northshore Community Co Op Preschool. Which means, it was her last day with Teacher Betsy, our favorite teacher ever! :( I can't believe that Darby was 1.5 yrs old and in diapers when she started preschool, and now she is all done. Next year we're switching to a drop off only preschool, and only because of Teacher Betsy is she ready for such a feat! 
For our last circle time Teacher Betsy called up each child and gave them a hug, a certificate, and some bubbles. And there wasn't a dry eye in the house when we sang the goodbye song for the last time. Us grown ups could hardly get through it! Oy, it's SO hard to say goodbye to such a light in your child's life! Thank you so much Teacher Betsy, for helping Darby come out of her little shell and be just a little more ready for all the new big things coming up in her life! We love you!

Thought it would be fun to show some comparison pics of Darby from when she started preschool and now!

10 Weeks

Happy 10 weeks Sawyer! 
At this point in your lil life you love some things, and you hate some things. Here are some Sawyer tidbits.
You love -
-laying on a blankie and stretching out your limbs
-watching your big sissy run around
-talking to anyone who will listen and talk back
-going to sleep around 9:30pm and waking up around 5:30am...and falling back asleep from 6:30am-9am
-having mommy walk you around the house for hours and hours!!
-lots of milk
-your binky
-your house, you are such a homebody!

You do NOT love-
-tummy time
-being cuddled and held like an infant (let me stretch out mom!)
-spitting up (but you do it ALL the time anyways)
-other people's houses
-sleeping during the day for long periods of time. You're a catnapper!
-being held while mommy is sitting
-leaning your head to the left, but we're working on it!

We love you Sawyer! You have changed SO much over the past 10 weeks, I just can't believe it. You are such a happy baby when you are in your lil bebe comfort zone. I love learning everything about you and spending everyday getting to know you. You truly are a blessing to our family. Can't wait to see you grow and grow <3

Check Ups

Today I took the kiddos in for their check ups. Darby still needed her 3 yr check up done, so it was perfect to get hers taken care of at Sawyer's 2 month check up. They both did great!

 Sawyer was all smiles and coos for the Doc (until the shots, that is) ;)
He weighed in at 13.9 pounds (91st percentile)
Measured 24in long (85th percentile)
Head circumference is 16.1in (74th percentile)
Yay Sawyer! We talked more about his neck/head problem (he prefers to lay his head only to the right) but the doc said to just keep working with him on practicing turning it the other way and we'll check it again at his next check up. 
He is such a good baby. He sleeps through the night and eats like a champ! He still spits up a lot, but it just seems to be his thing! I was worried at first he wouldn't gain adequate weight with all his spitting up, but he proved me way wrong. I also talked to the doc about the possibility of acid reflux, but since he sleeps through the night and doesn't complain much anymore he thinks he's fine. Just a spitter! 

Little miss Darby did amazing at her check up. She hasn't seen the doc in a while, so she shook his hand and said 'Im Darby Lee Crompton and Im 3!' when he came in ;) So cute! He checked her all over and she is the picture of health. He had her balance on one foot, jump up and down, draw, name some colors, etc. She even got to wear the big girl gown. My lil baby girl isn't so little anymore I guess. 

So blessed to have two happy and healthy bebes!!

Love being a Mama

I love my two kiddos! And my lil fam-bam. This Mother's Day Dave was cleaning his brother's roof so I went to my sissy's house for brunch with my Mom and kids. It was so lovely! And to top it off, we got to meet her new 10 week old English Springer Spaniel, Delaney! What a cute pooch :)

Sawyer slept the whole time and wasn't that interested in sweet Delaney ;)
 I got some gift cards so decided to finally get the car seat adapter for my new BOB.... doesn't fit! Apparently BOB hasn't released the infant car seat adapters for the new models yet, and wont be until mid June. How silly! 

My parents dropped this pretty lil sign of Spring off on our porch

And Darby drew this amazing pic of me and her! I know she's my child so anything she does I will see as perfect, but this is pure talent! I was quite impressed. She said we were smiling :)

Then later on that evening Dave, the kids and I went to his parents house for some pizza and more fam time. It was a great Mother's Day! Love my family :)

6 Weeks and Loving It

 Loving my 6 week old lil man these days! It's amazing how 6 weeks can completely change a newborn into a lil baby with personality. We definitely love it! Here are some hilariously adorable pics from last night when big sissy Darby was making him smile and coo. So fun :)

Silly baby!! 
And PS, poor guy....maybe next time we have a photo shoot I'll lay a blue blanket over his pink know, so he won't be embarrassed ;)

Flowers Flowers Everywhere

Holy sunshine! It was beautiful, sunny and 66 degrees today, so we headed to the Tulip Fields in Skagit Valley. The flowers were gorgeous and the kiddos had fun. Well, Sawyer slept in his carrier and Darby demanded to know where the swings and slides were in this so called 'Flower Park,' but hey, we enjoyed the sun and the sights!

Easter Best

I forgot to take pics on Easter Sunday (gasp!) Well, I remembered, but it was after Darby had purple jelly bean drool all over her sweater and Sawyer had spit up all over himself. So I had to torture the kiddos and get them dressed again for some quick pics like a week later. And yes, now I see I could have spent 2 seconds and run a comb through Darby's hair....but hey, I'm still getting used to this 2 kids thing! ;)

Yaaaawn! Boring, Mom ;)

Darby wanted a picture in Sawyer's chair, too, of course.

My big girl learned this year that Easter is 'when Jesus came back to life' as opposed to last year, when she thought Easter was 'the Easter bunny's birthday' ;)

Hope everyone had a fun Easter!
