I have a feeling that there will be lots of posts titled "brothers", but here's the first!

New books!

2 new books came in the mail today for Declan! He was so excited to open the box and loves what was inside...Tap Tap Bang Bang and Bears on Chairs. We found these books at the library and have renewed them so many times because he loves them so much! In the video he says they came from "email", he means the mail man:)

Conall's Stats

We just got back from the doctor's office and here's how Conall is measuring up... 10 lbs 5 oz and 21 inches!! I can't believe how much he's grown, almost 3 pounds in 3 weeks! Declan was 10 lbs 11 oz at one month...Conall is doing a good job keeping up with him. Of course this means he'll be a hunk of a healthy baby too:)

4 weeks!

Little Conall D has been with us now for 4 weeks! He goes for his 1 month check up on Tuesday, so I'll post his stats then:) He's had a busy 4 weeks consisting of sleeping, eating and getting his diaper changed! I can't wait to see what he weighs, he's really started to fill out. I think he sleeps so much because he's tuning out all of the noise his big brother makes! We love you boo 2!

Declan is on the bottom:)

2 years + 1 month

Oh, Declan B! He's officially been 2 for a month now and he is loving it! He's adjusted well to having Conall as a little brother and loves to help whenever he can, he even likes to hold him now...he'll say "I pick up":) It's been so, so hot that we haven't spent much time outdoors, but he sure can make a mess indoors! We have been enjoying breakfast outside (it's not too hot because he get's up so early), trips to the library and the pretzel shop! Love you boo!

Cook out!

This past weekend our little family of 4 went to a cook out at my friend Chrissy's was well equipped with a trampoline, bounce house, slide and tons of toys, along with some great food and conversation! Declan had a blast with all of the kids and even went down the slide on his bottom (he normally only goes down feet first on his belly)! Thanks for a fun time Swickhiemer Family, Emma was so good with Declan:)

Here's a look at our little Superman...the little blue Superman shirt is BC's favorite (it's a 12 month size, time to get a new one!), the card he received from a friend for his birthday and flying with his dad is just awesome!

Splash Park

Yesterday we met up with our friends Laura, Mary and David at the splash park. Declan had a lot fun waiting for the water to spray up and running with Mary:) David and Conall mostly slept and ate! It was nice way to keep cool! There's also a picture of Thomas, their puppy that Declan talks about...he loves to get kisses from him:)

4th of July Fun- Part 1

Our 4th of July weekend was filled with days at the pool, walks, fireworks and naps! Declan is loving the pool this summer, so we were there Saturday, Sunday and Monday:) He's getting brave jumping off the side of the pool to us and walking around in water up to his chin! Conall slept pretty much the whole time we were at the pool...of course waking to eat! Declan has a nice tan now, too!

4th of July Fun- Part 2

After the boys took a nap on Sunday we headed downtown to the canals for a walk and to feed the ducks. It was a hot, hot afternoon, but Declan had fun throwing bread to the ducks. Conall mostly slept, only waking up to eat! We grabbed a quick dinner at Q'doba and headed back home to get ready to go see the fireworks! How cute are Dec and his dad? I love both of them in their cargo shorts:)

4th of July Fun- Part 3

Fireworks! Downtown had their fireworks on Sunday night, so we kept Declan up to watch...he loved them! We packed up our lawn chair backpacks and walked a block over to MLK Park to watch, we had an awesome view since we're about a mile away. We had told him earlier in the day that the fireworks would be sparkly colors in the sky and they would go "boom", "boom, boom in the sky" was his response:) People were letting off fireworks and fire crackers all around us, which he loved! Conall slept through all of it of course (as did Declan on his first 4th of July)!

4th of July Fun- Part 4

You can tell it was one fun weekend just by looking at these two:) They crashed on the chair after another day at the pool!

Conall's first bath

With Declan's help, we gave Conall his first "real" bath! Doesn't he look thrilled? He didn't cry, just wasn't sure about the whole thing! Even after he was out, I think he was still confused about the whole thing:)

Conall-2 weeks!

Can't believe he's been with us for 2 weeks now! He's been an awesome sleeper and eater so far. Declan is doing so well with him too! He gives him a kiss every night before bed and likes to help change his diapers:) This has been a busy week...we've been to the doctor, the IMA 100 Acres on a play date and to the library yesterday! This weekend will be all about the pool! And really, how handsome our my 3 guys?!
