Visits with Grandmas.

Today we had two special visitors, my mom, who no matter how often visits will always be a special visitor, and my grandma Helen from Florida. We spent the day together with the boys. We went out to lunch, played at the house, took naps, went shopping and ended the night at the Empanada House. It was a day full of good fun with great family and yummy food.
Good picture of Owen.
Good picture with Carter, kind of.

Owen 3 months. This week he has started cooing at me and just this afternoon he rolled over from his tummy to his back. Unintentional I'm sure, more like an accident, but who knows maybe he'll manage to do it again tomorrow. Last night was a good sleeping night for Owen. He went from 9 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. The first time all week that he didn't get up at 3 or 4. It was awesome and I'm crossing my fingers that we've turned a new leaf and this will start to be his new norm. I'm loving my happy little man. Here's a big smile caught on camera. Owen loves his grandma and she always manages to get him smiling. Owen and my mom. She's such a wonderful help and it's been great to have her close by. I cringe at the thought of her moving away again next month. I'm praying she finds another nursing job here in Texas so we don't have to be far away again.Carter has five teeth coming in right now so his temperment is hit or miss. Sometimes he loves me, is attached to my leg, wants to snuggle and be held, other times he would rather throw things, whine and have a melt down. I love the snuggles but could do a with a little less melt down. Carter has been a little jealous of Owen lately. Whatever the baby has he wants. Owen's binkie, the swing, the bumbo, the bouncy seat, you name it he wants it and doesn't want to share it. He also manages to climb in or squeeze himself into everything. His new favorite is the swing, he thinks it's hilarious to climb in, grab the binkie and swing while I am nursing. Here he is in the bumbo. When I put Owen in it yesterday Carter charged over to him and I thought for sure he was going to push Owen out. Luckily I caught him in time and we dodged an incident. For the most part Carter is learning to be gentle and cares about where Owen is and is always the first to run over to him if he cries. We're making baby steps and soon enough Carter won't even remember what it was like before we had Owen.

You have such cute boys Angie. and Owen looks like a mini-you! I wanted to meet him when I went to Bear Creek a few weeks ago, but ya'll were out of town!

Ava likes to squeeze into Cohen's bumbo too! She thinks it's fun for some reason - probably because she's not supposed to. That's fun to have your mom around - I love it when myi kids get to spend time with their grandma's too. They just love them so much.

Grandmas are heaven sent.

I laughed at little Carter wanting Owen's things. I guess it comes with the territory when they are so close in age.

Sounds like you guys had the perfect day. I just love naps and shopping... oh, and food! :) Mr. Owen is such a cutie. I love his hair. Carter is a cutie too. Such adorable kiddos!

Sorry, the deleted post is mine, I posted as my daughter! LOL I love the picture of Carter in the bumbo. We have one that color and Ayden gets in it constantly. Well, then again, so do the two older boys. I have no idea why.
