School Pics & Baby Hiccups

Late last week we received the proofs from the boys’ very first school pictures. People commented how well they turned out, and I reminded them the boys are used to having a camera in their face all the time! I scanned the proofs this morning so I could share them with you. The scanning process messed with the color, but you at least get the idea of how cute they came out! (We won’t be ordering any, as we just had those awesome pictures taken by my friend Jen!)




This past weekend, I felt baby hiccups for the first time! I’m sure the boys had the hiccups once in a while when I was pregnant with them, but there was so much going on “in there” that I had no clue what was a punch, kick, roll, etc let alone distinguish hiccups. The other night though, while watching TV, there was a definitely a rhythm to the movements for a solid 5-10 minutes. So cool!

Speaking of the baby, I’m wondering if nesting is kicking in… (again, something I didn’t really experience with the boys because I knew my “job” was to lay on the couch). This weekend I had a couple of big projects in the house I wanted to tackle and I managed to actually get both of them done!

While the boys were outside, helping Nick with yard work…

I was inside, organizing closets. Specifically, I was organizing the closet in the current playroom, soon to be baby room. Organizing that closet though meant (somewhat) organizing other closets in the house. Look at all of the cute pink and purple things I got to put back into that clean and empty closet though when I was done!

That big gift bag is full of little shoes, socks and hair/head accessories!!

This is the bonnet I mentioned last week, that my grandmother sent to my shower. She wore it 78 years ago, and I can’t wait to put it on my daughter and then pass it on to her when she has children!

When Nick came in from finishing the yard he was mighty impressed with how neat the closet was and that I’d actually found places for a lot of the stuff that had been living in there. Jackson said it best though, when he walked into the closet, held out his arms, spun around and said “Amazing!”.
