Just after delivery, I'm looking a little out of it... I'm finally able to move without pain, though the bruises from delivery still itch like crazy and are giving me fits.
My sweet boy. He is such a doll. He's eating like a champ and sleeps better during the day than at night.

Our little drama queen. Holy moly she is giving us a run for our money. She climbs on everything and is testing her limits. She does everything for attention right now (not at all related to the baby) so we are trying to figure out how to correct her and get our point across without making a huge fuss out of things and giving her what she wants. Tough one, that.

Dad had to take Zoe to the park to burn off some energy the other day. Between the hundred degree heat and me being pregnant, we've mostly been in the house lately. According to Cody she absolutely love the slide, but wasn't sure what the mulch surrounding the play ground was all about.

Rhys loves to swing, but he still likes to lean backwards so it's hard for him unless it's in an infant type swing that has a higher back (which we have in our backyard).

I don't remember if I've shared this before, but this is Rhys in his gait trainer. And this is usually his expression. He is doing really well in it, but we are still having major issues with him pitching fits any time he is made to do something he doesn't care to do. We just had his nutrition/eating "disorder", OT and PT consult for private therapy this week and we are very excited about the team who will be treating him. They have great ideas, a ton of fantastic equipment to work on and have created some very aggressive goals for him to reach. just based on preliminary talk it looks like he will have school in the mornings and probably have various therapy 3-5 days a week. Hello, mama is going to be busy shuttling kids!

Rhys is 3 years, Zoe is 16 months and Beckett is 1 week old!

Candice they are just beautiful! I cracked up at the pick of your mini-me in her towel! Wow does she look just like you! I'm glad to hear your pain level has gotten better. C-sections stink! I love the name Beckett! He is gorgeous! Praying that things settle for y'all a bit and you can enjoy this new chapter! Can't wait to meet him! Lots of love! Crystal
