Mother of boys

I think I said this in an earlier post, but just after Guthrie was born I had told Brian that I felt that I would be a mother of boys (even though I was totally convinced that Sammy was a girl during his pregnancy- initial instincts are best!). Gosh, I'm so happy that these boys are ours- they are so special and sweet beyond belief. Sometimes I almost can't stand just how much I love them both!

Quite possibly the cutest thing I've seen in my entire life

Guthrie loves the Easter bunny. LOVES him (or her, whatever the heck it is). If G were to make a list of his favorite people on the face of the earth it would probably be Mama, Dadda, Sammy and Easter Bunny tied, and Uncle Woo and Addie tied.

Today there was an egg hunt at our neighborhood park hosted by a local church. They had a balloon sculptor, music, treats, and.....the EASTER BUNNY (EB)! Words and pictures cannot convey how enamored Guthrie was with this creature. Upon arrival, G got out of the stroller and proceeded to follow the EB for over an hour straight. He must have gotten about 30 hugs from EB. He barged in on photo ops with other kids. He hovered around while EB was hugging other kids. I gotta hand it to the youth paster (who was inside that wondrous suit), he was super kind and patient with sweet G.

Before the kids were allowed to hunt for their eggs, there was an egg race: you know, the kind where you balance an egg on a spoon and run towards a target far away. Well, imagine 1.5 and 2 year olds grasping this concept, let alone successfully navigating across a small field to the finish. Too funny. G opted to try to eat his egg...

After the egg race, the kids lined up along an area full of colorful eggs- the paster said "Go!" All the kids scampered about, quickly placing eggs in their baskets. All the kids, except Guthrie- he was booking it straight to the EB, practically tripping over all the eggs in the process. What a sweet guy!

Once I got over my strong rush of love for Mr. G, I tried to get a video of him chasing after the EB. I got literally one second filmed before the batteries ran out on the camera. Guess we'll just have to relive this event in our memory!

These guys truly are sweet on each other...

Oliver Twist?

Pleasant face

That's what we often find ourselves calling Sammy. He's just such a sweet little guy- he's really settled into being quite a laid-back fellow, and super smiley to boot.

This first picture is the quintessential "pleasant face"- a small smirk with little upper lip dimples.

One of Sammy's favorite pastimes (besides gazing at mama, of course) is laying on the changing table- his extra favorite if he's naked too! It's just the right height for Sammy to check out what's going on around him. Often we'll exchange many smiles and coo at each other.

We just may have a thumbsucker on our hands....

Dare I say it? For the past week Sammy has been sleeping 8 and 9 hours at night! Wow, what a guy!

March Madness?

Guthrie has pretty much been obsessed with basketball lately- or as he calls it, "BA-ball!" First thing in the morning, once he's awake and going, Guthrie starts pointing to the door saying he wants to go outside to play some ball. Thank goodness the weather's been amazing lately so we can indeed play.

Here's Guthrie checking out Dada's sweet moves- but the question is: is he laughing with him or at him?

Big 'ole cute face

I wish I was a little bit taller, wish I was a baller..

Check out that goose neck follow-through!

Sammy @ 2 months...

Happy 2 months (a bit late!) little sweet Sammy!

This guy continues to be super cuddly and has started to smile up a storm. He loves having his big brother around- they're such a sweet pair.

We can't help but think that Mysterio had it all wrong. How in the world could this guy be a criminal mastermind?!!

We love you special guy!
