Smiles and Cereal

I decided to post a ton of pics since I can't seem to get around to blogging but maybe once a week. This past week was a fun one. I took the kids to the beach almost every evening. I just strapped Troy into the Bjorn and ran around with Melia in the sand. We saw some beautiful sunsets. Troy is 2 months tomorrow and is the happiest little boy!!
I love his face!! He smiles and coos so much. He is still sleeping great. He sleeps roughly 12 hours every night getting up twice to nurse but falling right back to sleep. Melia, on the other hand, is waking everybody up! She has a daybed now and it has been tough with her coming in every few hours at all hours of the night "where'd my dee dee (binky) go, Mommy?" Hmmm...Melia I don't know go back to bed!!!! She has awakened Troy a few times and a few times we have found her downstairs looking for us. Last night was better so hopefully the novelty of leaving her room will wear off soon.
This is what I found after being upstairs for a few minutes to change Troy. Melia equally portioned out Cheerios into about 10 bowls and out the lids on them. Dan was very happy to hear this as he hates pouring his own cereal!
Hanging out watching a movie...
Ok Karyn this looks just like you!!! hahahaha Doesn't it? The ol' side stare!
Melia has finally let us put barrettes in her hair! I am so happy about this as her bangs just hang in her face and it has been bugging me. I think she looks so adorable.
My sweetie!
Troy loves to coo at the animals hanging down from his floor mat. So sweet. I could watch him do this all day!
So serious...
Sleepy boy... Troy has been sleeping in our room in his bassinet. Well the other night our fire alarm starts beeping very loud. So Dan goes down to the garage and gets some batteries. We think the batteries might be low causing this. So we carefully move the dresser over and he climbs up and changes the batteries. Troy remains asleep. So about an hour later we are awakened again by loud beeps. Dan jumps up on the dresser as I am whispering loudly "Rip it down!!" He takes it down and it starts beeping even louder in his hands! So he shoves in under his shirt and leaps off the dresser like a cat then races down the stairs and out the backdoor!! hahaha Anything to keep the baby asleep, right?? Well Troy woke up anyway but nice effort, Dan!!
Grandma Frisby is coming out this Thurs. We can't wait to see you! Then Aunt Kiki, Mike and Nash are coming Fri for a week. We are so excited. We hope this week goes by fast!!

That is so funny...seriously anything to keep the baby sleeping! ha ha...make sure your alarm isn't also a CO2 alarm because ours went off because of that and I thought it was the batteries too! We ended up calling the fire department to check for CO2. Anyway, I'm sure you're safe but just a check! Love you

I like the barretts. Melia looks more feminine with them, and very cute. I don't know how you get him to sleep so long. I think they're born that way. I love how they are so interested in things/toys when they're that small.
