Happy 2nd Birthday Grayson

I still can't believe today my first born Grayson is TWO!
The past two years have gone by so quickly...
Grayson is so a JOY and FULL of LIFE and we LOVE him to pieces! 

We had a small celebration tonight with the Fisher girls and will have his BIG tractor party on Saturday! 
Today Grayson also had his two year old well visit
HE did great!  I was nervous that he might not like going now that he is more aware of what is going on and where we are going, but he loves Dr. S and all the toys to play with! 
Two Year Old Stats:
Weight: 24 pounds 1 ounce (8.07%)
Height: 31.25" (1.26%)

We have a little guy...

Poor little guy has a double ear infection so we are really hoping by Saturday he is happy and ready to play with all of his friends.  He has been home from school the past two days. 

This appointment was different no shots, I thought he would have gotten shots, but NONE!  He doesn't get anymore shots until he is FOUR!  Also he stood on a scale to be weighed and he had to stand against a wall to get his height.  He did SO good!  I helped by showing him first.  The only thing that Grayson didn't like was when they checked his blood pressure.  He wanted that thing off of his arm ASAP! 

Happy Birthday Sweet G! 
We love you to the moon and back!

My Mother's Day

My Mother's Day was spent loving on my two handsome boys! 
We had a low key weekend just one event on Saturday morning and Sunday morning we had Crew's dedication into our church.  Other than that we spent the days at home!

Which is much needed...because we have BIG and NEW things happening at our house over the next few weeks.  I will share all details when things are final!  Please keep us in your prayers and that all the pieces will fall into place! 
Thanks in advance friends!

All I really wanted for Mother's Day this year was a picture with both my boys.  We had planned to do this before church, but it didn't happen because Crew was crying and Grayson was having a meltdown and ready to leave the house.  So this is the images we got later in the afternoon.

I am actually happy with the candid pictures that Chad took for me.  Thanks honey! 
I hope everyone had a wonderful mother's day weekend!
Just a few more days and Grayson is TWO!

a special thank you Amie Hansen

If you have read my blog for awhile especially after having Grayson you all know that I love pictures!

My sister Amie is a fabulous photographer {Amie Hansen Photography} and I REALLY wish she lived next door to me.  My favorite thing about my sister's work is that she captures a story with her images. 
I see this in all her work. 
It is just not portrait images of children and families smiling at the camera. 
It is moments of families together, it is first moments of baby newness, it is moments of mother's with their children, it is moments of dad's with their children, it is moments of fun and laughter from children, and it is moments of children being children. 
It is images and expressions to cherish for a life time!  I know when I look back on images that Amie has taken for me I remember that special day like it was yesterday.  

We had the privilege to have Amie take pictures of our family twice since Crew was born and we LOVE the moments she captured!
She created a story of a moment in time of Grayson:
his love for TRACTORS

She created newness when photographing Crew with all the tiny details
She captured special moments of me with my boys

Then there are images spent with family that I JUST LOVE!  These images are priceless to me.  Crew was just a few weeks old and my time was dedicated to him, but I was luck to have my sister along side us on Easter weekend and a trip to the Children's Museum to capture moments of our families interacting together.  

What I love about Amie's work is that she sees things differently and captures images that are beautiful.  

My experience with working with Amie as a photographer has been very rewarding.  Not just because she is my sister, but I have seen her work with other families and the memories she has created for them and I know first hand that those families are forever grateful for her time and talent as a photographer. 
She not only creates images for print, but she goes above and beyond with some sessions and creates slideshows of the images and storybooks. 
Create a story now with your family through photography you won't be disappointed!

Crew's 2 Month Well Visit

Crew had his 2 Month Well Visit this morning and I WAS so looking forward to this appointment!
I was looking forward to finally seeing our pediatrician vs other pediatrician's in the clinic.  Chad and I both really like the boys pediatrician and after today's appointment he made me feel so much better.  I addressed my concerns with Crew's reflux and how we are not getting sleep in our house and all he does is cry.  After discussing several options we have decided to try the following method first for three weeks to see if things change for Crew.  We are changing his medicine to Prevacid once a day and we are going to try doing the thickening medicine to a bottle of breastmilk for a night bottle and see if that helps! 
We discussed moving to formula, but for now we all agreed to try this and not rule out breastfeeding entirely.  I would really like to continue breastfeeding, but if things don't improve I will do what is best for our family. 
Chad and I are also going to discuss seeing a chiropractor for Crew.  I have heard from several of you that it works.  We want to see Crew happy and not in pain. 

Thanks for your comments, emails, tweets and prayers for little Crew!

Crew's 2 Month Well Visit Stats:
Weight: 10 pounds 2.5 ounces
Height:  21.25"
HC: 40cm

Here is Crew all stretched out at the doctor this morning
