We had a great Easter this year! Tayson was finally old enough to enjoy (for the most part) hunting eggs, dying eggs, and seeing what the Easter bunny left for him. It was so funny because everytime we talked about the Easter bunny and how he was going to come, he would always say "Foo Foo?". He loves the song "Little Bunny Foo Foo" and thinks that the Easter bunny is indeed, Foo Foo himself! So...we just went with that and told him that Foo Foo came! He loved what Foo Foo brought and had to start playing with the t-ball set, right away!

What Foo Foo left for Tayson and Tristin...

Tayson's Easter basket and goodies...

Tristin's Easter basket and goodies (I didn't have time to get him a custom basket like Tayson's, since he was only 2 weeks old, but we will definitely have to get one before next year!)...

Checking out all of the candy!

"Wow Mom, Foo Foo brought me a T-Ball set!"

The next Babe Ruth!

After we got ready, we headed out to Justin's mom and dad's house for lunch. Foo Foo had been there too! (That bunny really made his rounds!)

When we were done there, we went to my mom and dad's house and ate dinner with them. Don't worry...the bunny had been there too!

We had such a great Easter and enjoyed just relaxing and getting to spend time with all of our family! At the end of the day, the boys were exhausted!

I hope everyone had a great Easter!!

Dying Easter Eggs

On Saturday night (before Easter, I know I am way behind), we ate dinner at my mom and dad's house and dyed Easter eggs. Tayson had a blast doing this! He treated the eggs like they were little balls and would throw them into the dye. His favorite thing to do was put as many eggs as possible into the same color dye. Needless to say, we ended up with a lot of eggs that were the same color!

Tristin's Newborn Pictures

A few weeks ago we had Amber take Tristin's newborn pictures. She just sent me the link to them yesterday and they are adorable!! If you want to look at them, go to Click on Haythron (yes, I know it is spelled happens all the time!). If you need a password, it is Tristin. If you are ever looking for a photographer, she is amazing and so much fun!! Now I just have to figure out how I am ever going to decide which ones to buy!

Happy Birthday!


Today is your one month birthday! I cannot believe that it has been a month already! Time flies when you are having fun!! In other aspects though, it seems like you have been a part of our family forever. We have had so much fun this past month, adjusting to life with two little guys and just getting to know you. You are such a sweet and happy baby and we are so blessed to be your mommy and daddy!

Things I want to remember about you at one month:

*You are so laid back and hardly ever cry!

*You hate to ride in your car seat. Tayson wasn't a fan of the car seat at first either so maybe you will warm up to it, like he did.

*You love to take a bath. You just lay in there and look around the entire time.

*You are sleeping about 3-4 hours at night

*You are eating about every 2-3 hours during the day

*You get the hiccups almost everytime you eat!

*You are taking your pacifier pretty well but it still isn't your favorite thing!

Hunting Easter Eggs

The week of Easter, we practiced hunting eggs with Tayson a few different times. He was such a pro at it...for about two minutes! That was when he decided that he was done with the egg hunting and was going to play with something else! Oh, the attention span of a 2 year old! We had a great time anyways! I'm so glad that we hunted eggs before Easter Sunday because the weather was not good!

My smallest prince!

These are some random pictures from the first two weeks of Tristin's life. He is such a happy baby!! I have the hardest time getting good pictures of him though because everytime the camera flashes, he closes his eyes. We took him to the doctor on Friday for his 2 week checkup and man...this little guy is a good eater! He weighs 8lbs 11oz and is 21.75" long! That means that he has gained 1lb 1oz since he was born and is 1.75" longer! Dr. Froman and her nurse were teasing me, saying, "What do you have in those things? Half and half!!" When we took him for his first weight and color check (at 4 days old) he was down to 7lbs 4.5oz and was 20.75" long!

Waiting on mommy to finish taking her shower. I am always such a good boy while she takes a shower!

Hanging out with Tata, she loves to hold me!!

No more pictures, please!!

Practicing my tummy time!! I'm not a huge fan!

Easter Cupcakes

One day last week, Tayson and I decided to make some Easter cupcakes. He was such a big help! He put all of the cupcake papers in the pans, helped blend everything together and even helped lick the beaters!!
