I think it is funny to go through pictures to see how your kids compare to each other. The first thing that I noticed between the two is that Boston probably outweighed Lincoln (at four months) by 5 pounds. At this point she had cheeks to spare and Lincoln is pretty normal at a steady 16 pounds. Next, is that Boston had jet black hair while Lincoln's is fairly light and last, Boston had black eyes and Lincoln has dark blue.

Another fun thing that we did was lay out reindeer food for Santa's reindeer. After she went to bed I went to went out side and knocked over the bowl and sprinkled some down the stairs. When she woke up she was so excited that they ate some of the special food.

Boston has really adjusted well to another little person in the house. From day one she has been so hands on, in fact she threw a fit when she coould not hold him right after he was born (at the hospital she would let other people hold him only for a few seconds and then say, "I want to hold MY baby brother.") She has since let up a little, but any chance she gets she tries to hold him and has even figured out that he is getting big enough that she can pick him up herself (yikes). I do have to say though Lincoln loves Boston so much, anytime she starts to talk he looks around for her and once Lincoln finds Boston he will not takes his eyes off her. I love to see the two of them together, it truley shows what unconditional love is.

Be present today and do not worry about the things that are beyond our control :)

I can't beleive it has been almost four months. It is amazing how fast kids grow. Lincoln has gone from sleeping and eating all the time to smiling, laughing, and still eating all the time. Although I am excited to watch him grow I will always treasure the day that I held him for the first time.

This picture was taken about four months ago before the real work began. With the help of our friends, thanks Darin and Peach, we had to jack hammer the concrete, take down old cast iron pipes (you would be grossed out to see what was petrified in them), move drains into the joists and lay new ones in the ground. It was a process, but Boston managed to help out as much as she could.
Mommy's little elf. This picture is my favorite one. It was taken at the hospital on my cell phone; however, I just learned how to email myself the pictures from my phone. Nothing like being cell phone literate even if it takes you ten minutes to type in the address!

So everyone knows that having a new baby is stressful enough, but add breastfeeding to the equation and it kicks it up a notch, especially if your body refuses to help out. Ever since Lincoln's birth he has been a lazy eater and only will nurse from one side and then about an hour later decide to hit the milk bar again from the other side. This was not a problem, really, I did not mind feeding every hour during the day and getting up like a million times a night until..... I got in the shower the other day. As I was trying to enjoy the few minutes of me time while washing my hair I looked down and the little stinker has made me lets say less than proportional. My right breast is back to its pre-pregancy size (A) while the left breast is full cup size bigger and wow can you tell both in and out of clothes. How do you hide this, just stuff a few extra nursing pads on the smaller side and pray that you do not have to nurse in public :) Just another joy of having kids.
Today is the first day that I am attempting to "Blog." To tell you the turth I really am dumb when it comes to the computer. In fact, the first time I learned how to use PowerPoint was in my College Communications class a few years back, which makes me feel a little out of touch with the world of technology (after all elementary kids know how to use PowerPoint). So for today I am just working on the basics, which is good for a person that only knows how to change the font :)
