Four Weeks Old

Our little Corey Boy is one month old today. He is changing a little more each day and starting to look less like a newborn. He has big blue eyes with white eyelashes. He also has a serious mohawk going on (which I keep forgetting to take a picture of). He is a big boy and everyone assumes he is older than he is. My friend, Megan, from work came over with her two month old (see photo) and Corey was bigger than him. I think that Corey is trying really hard to be the biggest baby ever because he wants to eat CONSTANTLY. :) Here are the photos from the week:
This last picture is of Tate and his little friend Zoe (my friend Emily's daughter). They were playing in the drinking fountain at the mall (instead of the play area....go figure). They thought they were being naughty so I had to get a picture of them being so cute.

Summer Nights

I love summer nights. We love to go outside when the sun is going down and it isn't so dang hot. Nathan has been setting off some sweet fireworks, which Taters loves. This is the good stuff!

Three Weeks Old

Corey is now three weeks old. It is so wierd to think he has only been in our home for three weeks, because we already can't imagine life without him. Corey still loves to sleep and snuggle. He had his first real bath this week and he actually really loved it. We have been able to do some fun things this week to keep Taters occupied. We went to Kangaroo Zoo and Dipidee Bakery and also set up Tate's pool (thanks, grandpa!) in the driveway. Summer time is the best! Here are some photos/ videos from our week. (The photo of Tate in the Big Brother shirt is showing when Tate found my mascara and put it on. We couldn't get it off for a few days...)

Newborn Shots

I took these photos of the boys when Corey was about a week old.

2 Weeks Old

Corey is two weeks old as of yesterday. It is hard to believe he has only been in our lives for two weeks because he fits right in our family. He is changing every day and losing more of his newborn look each day. He still sleeps alot (and eats alot). It is fun to have a summer baby because we are able to go on walks and take him out more. We had a fun day last Saturday with Nathan's brothers, Darren and Julie, and their families. We played at Pinnacle and did some fireworks. Corey went to the dr on Monday and he is weighing in at 9 lbs 10 oz, so he is bulking right back up. Tate is having fun being a big brother and loves to be helpful (thank goodness). We love our little guys so much!

This picture is of Corey on his first lunch outing. We went to the Pizza Factory and he just sat in his seat and looked around. Tate was being so sweet playing with Corey, so I ran and grabbed the video camera. Tate can be so sweet when he wants to be! :)

And, in other news, Nathan won this iPad at work last month for being in the top five of the salesman. He wins things all the time, like the t-shirts that he and Tate are wearing in this picture. Tate wants to wear his Pinnacle shirt everyday and be "twinners" with his daddy. :)

Do these boys look alike?

We are still trying to figure out if Tate and Corey look alike. I think they look similar, but not exactly alike. I gave Corey a little sponge bath the other day (at about a week and a half old) and took this photo:
Then, I found this picture of Tate. He was a month old in this photo, but it is still pretty crazy.

One Week Old

We have been home with Corey for one week now. It has been a great week and I have loved being at home with my boys. Corey has a sweet little spirit and we spend most of our days just snuggling with him. Tate is doing well with Corey and not being too crazy. These are a few photos from our week.

Coming Home

We came home on Sunday, July 4. It was nice to finally be home with our little family. We didn't have any major 4th of July parties, but we did do some fireworks. Nathan had some sweet fireworks and we watched them (from far away) and just had fun being together.

One of the sweetest parts of having Corey in our lives has been to see the interaction between Tate and Corey. Tate has been so sweet with him and loves to touch him, hold him, kiss him and hold him. He is constantly saying how funny Corey is or how cute he is. Corey also recognizes Tate's voice and turns towards him when he hears him. I can already tell that they are going to have a special bond and be good friends. It is the cutest thing I have ever seen and makes me tear up every time I see them together. I love my boys!!
We had the boys exchange presents (well, Tate held the present in front of Corey). Tate gave Corey a glow worm that he picked out at the store and Corey gave Tate a little guitar (which he has already broken). That helped Tate realize that Corey was an ok guy to have around. :)
