August: He has taken to fighting his nap like it is his job. (oh uh uh.)

Baby: She is a busy little baby. During this particular day, Gus fought his nap so hard that he ended up falling asleep on me! I loved it. Although, I believe she wasn't too keen on the whole thing. She kicked and kicked and kicked like crazy, I thought for sure she'd wake him. You better watch it, Gus! She'll be here soon and I have a feeling she's a feisty one.

August: He was fighting his nap one day and so I just kind of rolled with it and brought him back out to play some more. Within 5 minutes, he came to me with arms up in the air. I picked him up and kissed him. He pointed to my lips for me to start singing his naptime song and laid his heavy head on my shoulder. Then he reached his little arm straight out and pointed to the stairs. And he went straight to sleep, true dreambaby style.
Baby: We've been preparing her nursery and calling her by name and falling so in love with thoughts of our daughter.

First Haircut

Jared and I had been taking sides on August's little wispy curls for a few weeks. "You should cut his hair." "No, those curls are SO sweet!"..."I think you are right, it is time for a haircut." "No no, not just yet.." Then last Monday was a snow day that kept us trapped indoors for the day and we had a mutual agreement that it was time.  August was surprisingly tolerable of the whole thing. It is amazing what a little chocolate milk will do! Although August was a super sport about the whole thing, it was still a pretty difficult haircut to get through. In my few years of haircutting, I've never felt heartache the way I did while cutting those soft honey blonde curls. It'll grow back exactly the same right?
But seriously. Isn't he just the MOST handsome?

August: He can't get enough of silly cat youtube videos. And we can't get enough of his belly laughs. And so cat youtube videos all day, everyday.
Baby: It's a girl!!!!!
