Hudson: 40 Weeks

4 Jan

Look at this big guy! He is happy as can be! We are starting to head towards 3 big bottles a day and more finger foods so that should be interesting. My goal is off purees by the end of the month but we shall see. He seems to be hungry constantly. I am sure it’s hard business trying to keep up with that growing body.

His gums are super swollen so I imagine within the next couple of weeks we make have some teethers pop out. Oh the joys of teething…. not looking forward to heading down that road again!

Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

26 May

What a long week (lots of photos this week too)! Chris and I were busy busy trying to get the outdoor kitchen finished for the holiday weekend.

I Chris started tiling on Monday. Messy!

I joined in on the action Tuesday. Took 4 nights to get the beast done (remember we have 2 kids to feed, bathe, and get ready for bed)!

Love lilies!!

I hadn’t gone through our wedding book for a while and happened to glance through it the other day. Although this makes me sad it also brought a smile to my face πŸ™‚

This big boy had his 2 month check-up this week. More to come on that visit on his 2 month post. Let’ just say, he is growing quickly!

Kyler wanted to be apart of Hudson’s 8 week photos

Love this smiley face πŸ™‚

Just love him!

For Easter, Kyler got a new pool towel. I really wanted to get Hudson one as well but the one I wanted was sold out. Well PBK got them back in and I love it! It’s the Octopus Mini towel and it’s perfect!

Kyler’s school pictures!

Hudson and I hit up BJ’s for some party supplies. Poor guy got buried!

We hung the lights at 10:30pm and stocked the fridge for the next day! Not like cutting it close πŸ™‚

We threw our first pool party this Memorial Day Weekend! It was 95 degrees out so it was a great day to be in the pool. My best girlfriends and their families came over and it was perfect! It was fun to think about where we were 10 years ago (lounging around a college apartment pool) to where we are now, laying around with our husbands and kiddos. Much different but still a blast! I am so fortunate to have such a close group of friends. We don’t get to spend as much time together anymore now that we have our own lives to live so I am so happy they were able to make it out!

Fun with Poppa

I made Peach Sangria!!

I used the recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction but made some tweaks to it to make it a peach sangria instead. She calls for OJ but I opted for Peach Nectar. I think I bought the wrong Champagne (made it a bit too dry) so I ended up adding some sugar and peach schnapps to sweeten it up. It was yummy! Perfect for a HOT day!

Firing up the grill for the first time!!

Can’t forget about the drinks!

Our spread

Kyler and Greyson enjoying some snacks together

Besties ❀

We hit up our favorite breakfast place, Keke’s, Sunday morning. I love their apple cinnamon French Toast! Yum πŸ™‚

Kyler enjoyed some pancakes and fruit

Daddy and Hudson enjoyed their pancake as well πŸ˜‰

Helping Chris carry Hudson to the car ❀

My precious family ❀

We hit up Epcot later that day. Kyler rockedΒ the ole Red, White and Blue!

This little guy rode around in style too πŸ™‚

Checking out Nemo

This Memorial Day we had the Gilbertson’s over for some steaks and corn on the cob. We are loving our new grill!

My Cutie on Duty!!

My fishy

I can’t wait to put the finishing touches on the kitchen and share it with you!!! Here is a sneak peak πŸ™‚

I hope everyone had a great and safe Memorial Day Weekend!!!! Thank you to all of you that have served and those of you that continue to serve. USA all the way baby!

Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

18 May

Hudson cracked his first smile this past week. Can’t wait until he is Mr. Smiley all of the time.

Sometimes Hudson reminds me of my brother Craig πŸ™‚ This is one of those times.

Our day consists of rotating him between me holding him the bouncer and the swing with the occasional tummy/floor time.

These came in the mail. Yep, we are now Disney passholders. Kyler’s obsessed with all things Disney and we live in Orlando so why not?

I started working out again this past week. This time I am trying p90x3. We shall see!

Kyler was home a couple of days with me this week. I left her in her playroom for a few minutes so I could get ready (we had to run some errands) and when I came back to get her so we could leave, this is how I found her. She is so random sometimes haha.

We made a trip to my work this past week and Kyler was being so anti-social. As soon as we got in the car, she passed out. Explained a lot!

They love each other

Had fun playing with this cutie!

She wore herself out she ended up passing out!

Kyler joined in while I was doing pushups with p90x. She loves to “work out”

She just loves her brother!

I know he is my kid and all but he is seriously one of the cutest kids ever πŸ™‚

Only 3 more weeks of maternity leave 😦 I am trying to soak up every last minute. Here is to yet another busy week!

Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

11 May

Oh how different this maternity leave is from my last one. Folding Kyler’s clothes while Hudson hangs out.

and of course, tackling this disaster courtesy of Kyler herself

Kyler is a stuffed animal hoarder. The more the better. Here are just a collection of “friends” she sleeps with.

She also started swimming lessons again this past week. She did them last Fall and was great when we finished, however, she was terrified of the pool again.

I love coffee. I also love coffee mugs. I picked up this Rapunzel mug at Disney last week. I figured why not use it while Kyler watched Tangled (for the 120058th time).

Hudson has been wearing 6 months clothes lately (can I please remind you that he is 6 WEEKS old!)

Wakey wakey!

She loves to love on her brother… he on the other hand isn’t so sure about it πŸ™‚

Hudson loves to sit up and look around. So alert!

Kyler had a friend come over on Friday. Hannah and Kyler are 3 days apart and her mom and I have been saying we need to get them together for about, oh 2 years πŸ™‚ Finally made it happen!

Caught her reading my Baby 411 book. Wonder if she picked up any good pointers?

We did LOTS of swimming this weekend.

Funny how in the beginning of the week she went from a scared girl to a little fish! Thank you Ms. Heidi!

All of her friends lined up and watched

So much fun!

Kenley stopped by to say hi but decided she wanted to swim too πŸ™‚

We had dinner over at the Gilbertson’s. Crosby and Hudson hung out πŸ™‚

Kiddo shot!

For Mother’s Day, I am usually with my momma too but she is taking a much deserved vacation right now so we just stayed home and played in the pool.

My sweet baby boy ❀

and my crazy goofy little girl!

Yelling at me to “Get in the water, Mommy!”

Then she steals my glasses. Sneaky girl. (side note: look at that belly full of air!)

Hudson just hangs out and watches

These two are my whole world and make being a mommy the BEST thing that can happen to someone.

Happy Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mommies out there!!

Jenkinsons, Party of Four

8 May

One thing I regret was not getting newborn photos taken professionally after Kyler was born. I didn’t think I would really care and by the time she was here, it was too late. Thus why I booked a session for Hudson. I found Rebecca Luisi Photography online and went with her. Hudson was 11 days old in these photos. I am so happy with how they turned out! Here are a few favorites πŸ™‚

4 May

I started off the week with this. It’s so nice to just walk out to the backyard and enjoy the pool. This is Florida living.

Hudson hung out in shade instead πŸ™‚

Little dude and I ran some errands.. not very exciting but it’s nice to get out of the house

I picked up this book for Hudson. Pretty excited about it!

Thursday was my birthday. The big 2-8. I celebrated by heading to dinner with my sweet family.

Kyler didn’t want toΒ take a picture…

We tried out the new restaurant near us and we LOVED it!

Can’t wait to head here when I can actually enjoy a few of these πŸ™‚

My parents surprised me with a new grill! So excited to use this.

The hubs surprised me with a couples massage. Yes, please!

Hudson was having a hard time getting settled last night in the rock n play so I decided to test him out in the his crib… he did great!

Today, we hit up Magic Kingdom for some fun.

This is how Hudson strolled for the day.

Can someone push me around with a fan and sun shade?

Hudson’s first time at Disney!!

This is how Kyler strolled around for part of the day

The girl loves the carousel

Waiting for the parade to start!

Dancing to the music

Hi Pluto

So Kyler doesn’t like to meet characters BUT she thinks she does. So what does that get you? Her getting really excited to meet them and then when you get up there, a scared and shy little girl. Some classic Kyler dirty looks for ya!

Meeting Cinderella

Meeting Rapunzel. She actually talked to her and asked her to let down her hair. But… no smile.

She didn’t seem to mind meeting Donald or Goofy

Meeting Mickey… she was so excited to meet him until it was our turn in which case, she clinged to Chris and started crying.

They had to ask Mickey to leave and this is the shot we got.

She finally let Chris get near Mickey

As we were walking out the door, she said “Bye Mickey!” and then told us after we left she wanted to give him a hug. Yeah buddy, don’t think that is true πŸ™‚

After being snuggled up all day, he was a happy boy to stretch that long body out

Happy Sunday!

Hudson: 5 Weeks

3 May

He is so alert now! I am starting to see a sleep pattern and he is still growing like a weed.

Β Summer veggies, yummm πŸ™‚

Tummy time with the boy πŸ™‚

This girl loves her swing set

Just love her sweet face

Mr. Crabby Pants

Ammo’s favorite thing to do is hunting for lizards. Kyler decided to join in (there is one wayyyy up at the top)

A lot of times at school, the teachers will tie Kyler’s hair back. This is how I picked her up on Friday. HOT MESS

Life with 2 kids πŸ™‚ Kyler was having a melt down for no apparent reason then she decided to take her screaming over to Daddy and bumped Hudson which prompted him to start crying… can’t help but laugh sometimes! (Say hi to Mr.Fen who decided to photobomb the picture!)

My sweet snuggly boy

Hudson and Crosby!

I realize Hudson looks HUGE here (Crobsy is 5 months older). Although Hudson has made grown quite a bit this month, Crosby is still much bigger than Hudson πŸ™‚

Weekend trip to Lowes. This girl is too funny πŸ™‚

We finished picking up the supplies for the kitchen.

I am looking forward to enjoying our outdoor kitchen. I am also looking forward to getting our garage back in order!!

I love Florida Living ❀

So does Kyler!

She loves the bubbles in the spa

Just love her!

I enjoyed my first beer post Hudson. Aloha indeed.

The girl loves her shades… in this case, mommy’s shades.

Sand play!

Loving life with my two kiddos! This week I turn 28 and I’m looking forward to celebrating with my sweet family ❀

I’ve hit the treadmill up a few times this week. I’m not doing anything too crazy but just a good walk at an incline. Gotta start somewhere right?

This little cutie just hangs out while I’m walking

He is getting so big!

Hanging out with his bud Crosby

Love this part of my maternity leave!

Grandma and Poppa bought the kids a swing set this past week. This is 3 out of the 6 boxes!

Helping Dad put it together!

That smirk

If you couldn’t tell, Hudson has seemed to put on a bit of weight this week…Our chunker!!

Kyler’s school had a fun filled day on Friday. Easter egg hunt, Easter party and PJ day!!

Side note: Kyler is one clumsy kid. She gets all sorts of bumps, bruises and scraps. Her poor sweet face.

Counting her candies

We colored eggs with Kyler later that night

I was on double kid duty on Saturday while Chris and my dad built the swing set.

Have I told you how much I LOVE our playroom? So great to keep crazy Kyler busy for the most part of the day.

Kyler reading Hudson his new book he got for Easter. She is such a good big sis!

I did such a good job keeping Kyler from figuring out the swing set. I’m not sure what she thought it was but because she hadn’t spotted the swing or slide yet, she just though it was another project her dad was building. It was supposed to be a big surprise as she ran outside to look for Easter eggs.

Well needless to say, while Chris ran for a last minute item at the store this morning, I was washing my hands when I heard “My slide, my slide my slide, my park!!!” I came running around the corner to find her smashed up against the door hiding behind the blinds looking directly at it. UGH!Β 

Oh well, right? Thanks again to my parents for getting them the swing set. Kyler is beyond excited πŸ™‚

We had an AWESOME Easter!! More on that later:)

So fresh and so clean!

Reading Hudson his first book πŸ™‚

and of course big sis wasn’t far away

13 Apr

I will tell you this, adding Hudson to the bunch has somehow made the weeks go by even faster now! Here is what we were up to this week.

Hudson and I decided to join Kyler at Grandma’s house for a day. She didn’t seem to care either way.

On Wednesday, we took newborn photos in the morning which meant Kyler stayed home with us. We watched Frozen (I think I have watched this movie 4 times this week) and snuggled on the couch.

Hi big guy!

She loves to walk in Dad’s shoes…. kinda hard when they are half the size of her body.

The next day, my mom headed out to Orlando and we hit up the plant nursery (trying to get ideas for the 3rd phase of the ongoing backyard overhaul). As you can see (wayyyyy down there), Kyler had a great time running through the trees and plants.

We also headed to the tile store because I needed help picking out ideas for the outdoor kitchen.

Hudson had his 2 week checkup too! Big boy weighs 10lbs now. The doctor said he should have gained a 1/3 of that so he is obviously doing juts fine. Our little chunker! I am trying to soak up every minute of this time. Hudson is quickly losing his sweet tiny newborn feel thanks to his dad’s super big genes (I see him every day and can even tell he is growing at rapid speed).

Tummy time!

Love this little onesie his Aunt JJ gave him! Go Pats πŸ™‚

This weekend, Grandma and Poppa came over to help with the outdoor kitchen. While the boys worked, we took Kyler to the park. She had fun racing Grandma down the slide.

Looking like a kitchen!

We are obviously loving teal around these parts.

We stopped by Jason’s Deli today for lunch went meant free ice cream. So yummy.

She passed out about 2 minutes after this picture.

And this little guy snoozed the afternoon away.

Life is good!!!
