Lost without it

So our trip to the ocean was a blast, but I am sad to say I came home with a broken camera. I feel like I have lost a limb. I feel like I am missing priceless moments that will be permanently erased from my memory without the pictures to remind me. Okay dramatic but all is well because a new life line should be on our porch by Wednesday. It leaves my blog post with nothing but words so here we go.

Last year at this time I was patiently waiting for the arrival of our second boy. Not knowing what life would be after two little ones in our household. I can't believe it has almost been a year. I truly believe that having two babies makes you officially part of the parent club (nothing against only children parents). It is a whole new game juggling two of them though but I love it and I can't wait for more. (Only one more and pray it is a girl, because hubby says his is snipping the supply after the next.)

So what have these two stinkers been up to, well. . .

Nolan are a mama's boy for sure, you can't get enough of your mama which I don't always mind. You have taken about 4 steps so far and I am sure you will be walking within the next couple weeks. You can say "mama", occasionally "dada" and your sweet little "uh huh" when you are being naughty. You look up to your brother and everything he does. You always want the toy he has even if you have the same. You love your binky and mama is thankful for it to (although scared to break the habit someday soon) You are still nursing like a champ even with your 9 teeth, poor mama. You eat like no baby I have ever seen, baby food was not for you and you want everything that brother is eating. You have beautiful long eyelashes and a smile that is to die for. You like to scrunch up your nose and giggle, you sound like a little piggy. I love you to pieces.
Carter bug, my little toddler. My little man all grown up, so indepentdent with a heart of gold. You have learned to love your brother and I love to watch you play. Your hugs are sweet and you like to pat and rub my back when you squeeze. You surprise me with your words, saying "I love you" out of the blue but yet to repeat it again. Hearing it one time will keep me smiling for months to come. Your love of music is unbelieveable, you would dance in your sleep if there was music playing. You make your mama and daddy proud everyday in all that you have learned. You love to listen to books and fall asleep on mama's chest when she reads. You love animals and are hilarious when you inmitate their sounds.
My two little men, I love you so much. Thank you for being mine, thanks for making me your mama.
Love, Mama
