The Square

Hello Everyone,

This baby thing is soooo much fun, but I am getting kind of tired. :) So I try to go up to bed after I feed the baby (around 9 or 10) and Wes holds him until he comes up to bed. Well...last night I was kind of comatose, but I vaguely remember Wes coming upstairs and saying that the baby had peed on him and then pooped on the carpet while he was trying to get something to clean up the first mess.

So this morning I came downstairs and there was a neat little square on the family room carpet. Please note that the square is made out of (1) desitin (spell?) for sore bums, (2) Two tiny diapers, and (3) the wipes box. I asked Wes what the square was for and he said that he was marking the place where the baby had pooped so we didn't step in it. I about died laughing.

Even though Wes had scrubbed the carpet and gotten everything out, he likes to keep clean, so he wanted to clearly mark the area so no one stepped on it. I don't know how long the square will have to stay there--but all I can say is, I hope Wes puts a blanket down next time he changes Cache. :)

I don't know how something this cute could make such a big mess!

OH is our first family picture where I am not dead from labor. :) Love you all!

More Pictures of Baby Cache

This little guy is sooo stinking cute. Here are some pics that we have been randomly snapping of him. He seems to be growing before our eyes (even though it's been about 2 weeks) and it makes me cry every time I think about it. Seriously. I cry. No lie. I love this little baby so much. And, as you can see from the pics, he is everyone's favorite toy now. :) And, hopefully you can see that he is a pretty chill baby. He is usually just happy to be here and I love that about his little personality!

His daddy is the best dad in the whole world. Wes has been such a hands-on dad--from changing poopy diapers to helping me feed him, I have been truly impressed with Wes. He doesn't get nervous about changing him or holding him... he is just a wonderful dad. He and Cache were dancing tonight to get Cache to wake up and eat. I couldn't tell if Cache was afraid or if he liked it, but he woke up. :) Did I mention that I LOVE MY BOYS?!

Some might ask: what in the world is he doing here so early?

We would answer: We aren't sure, but he is the BEST thing that has ever happened to us. I guess Cache got sick of watching his mommy and daddy have all the fun without him, so he decided to come a month early. For the longer version of this story, please email (I didn't want to get too verbose). :) Cache was 6 lbs. 1 ounces when he was born and he was 18 inches long. His birthday is officially August 7!

Needless to say this is the best surprise I have EVER had. I love being a mommy. The joys of holding him and changing a million poopy diapers and just laughing at every "cute" thing he does are keeping me on a little high right now. We have a few changes, like: zero hours of sleep and the washer and drier are constantly cleansing some type of baby clothing, but those are some small trade offs for this little boy. I can't imagine life without him. It is honestly the most humbling and spiritual and FUN thing being a parent. (Why do we ever doubt that?)

Anywho...Here are some of his first mug shots. He has his daddy's HUGE LONG fingers...and he looks like a Brewer through his eyes and nose (although, he looks a TON like Wes did when he was born too!). Love you all!

Family Cabin Trip

This was a few weeks ago, but I wanted to show some of the pictures we took while we were with the Brewers up at the cabin in Strawberry. We seriously love this place because we can do nothing all day and not feel guilty about it. It has been one of our favorite vacation spots since Lindsey and I were super little. Now that she is leaving on her mission (VIRGINIA!), we thought we were lucky that we spent one more family trip up there with everyone.
