This post is going to be loaded with pictures and with info from the last couple of days!

To start off, I took the Little Man to his 2 week appointment. He is growing great! He is now 8lbs and 4 ozs. Also is 21 inches long! He is pretty close to the same size that his older brother was when he was born! It is crazy to think! He is a REALLY good baby and we feel REALLY blessed! He wakes up to eat every 2-3 hours (except last night, he went 5 hours!) but as soon as he is done he goes back to sleep. It is so nice! The other night about about 2:30 I was sitting on the couch feeding him and Little Dude woke up and came and sat next to me. We sat there and talked while the baby ate. When he was all done, Little Dude wanted to hold him and sing him a song. He held him softly and quietly sang "A, B, C, D..." it was really cute!

We enrolled Little Dude and his cousin in soccer. Their first game with this Saturday. It was so much fun! Little Dude is much better than he was last year, and his cousin is learning. They both seemed to have had a really fun time!

Also on Saturday my hubby came home with 40 lbs of fresh strawberries! I was shocked! He wanted to make jelly, I wanted chocolate covered strawberries. After MANY hours we ended up with TONS of both! 41 jars of jelly, a freezer filled with frozen ones, and a counter covered in chocolate covered ones! I was in heaven! A little tired of making jelly (hubby made most of it though) but we can now say that we have a 5 year supply of strawberry jelly!

We were given a swing set from a friend of my hubby's. It needed a few things done to it, but we got it up this weekend. The kids LOVE it! After eating the chocolate covered strawberries, the kids headed out to play, and have pretty much been there ever since (except for sleeping and school of course.). Check out the pictures of them that I added to this slide show! I am very excited to have this now! It has been so fun for them!
