It's all coming back to me...

Yes, it's all coming to back to me now. The horrors of sleepless nights and "please hold me all day or I'll cry really loud for a really long time" days stacked with two boys with croupy coughs, a head cold for me and a completely wrecked and mis-shapen body. Why do I keep doing this to myself? That's a really great question and I wonder that myself multiple times a day. Maybe I can't resist how sweet they look when they sleep:

Yep, I'm pretty sure I'll do this to myself again. Not anytime soon, but I don't think it gets much sweeter than this!

HUGE shout-out to Johanna for taking these amazing newborn pictures!! She was SO patient (Taya wasn't so sleepy and did not like to be touched when she did finally fall asleep if you can believe it) and did an amazing job. If you need a photographer - check her out at

Baby Sister!

She's finally here and she's still a girl! I can't believe I have a girl, so crazy. Taya Lynn was 7lb 2oz, 20 1/4 inches and a healthy pink screaming baby. Everything went as planned with c-section and she's been a fairly sleepy baby to this point. The sucking reflex is a little stronger than I remember :), but so far so good. I'll let you know how we're doing after I run out of Percocet.

 If you have a weak stomach, you might want to stop looking here! I love these c-section pictures :).

Flag Football Champions!

Well, champions may be exaggerating a little, but the Dolphins did kick flag football last Saturday! Dylan, and by Dylan I really mean Jeff, has literally been waiting his entire life for this moment. Dad coaching and son playing in the first flag football game of the season. It was pretty cute watching 5 and 6 year olds huddled in football stance watching everything but the ball and constantly messing with/gagging on their huge mouth guards. Dylan did awesome, and I'm only partly saying that because I'm his mom. He ripped two flags and had a good block at one point. Not bad for being one of the little guys!

That's Dylan's buddy Cam. They both play defense a little better than offense, Dylan outside linebacker.

Going in for the kill...

And there it is! His first red flag pulled this season! See that little smirk?

Some diving action...

Another play stopped...

The hand off... didn't go as planned but we'll just leave it at this

Check out that face. That's some serious focus :).

I love this picture. Yup, that's Tyler's foot on Dylan's face (both out cold in my bed). This picture is totally representative of their personalities. Dylan is usually so sweet and concerned with others feelings, and well, Tyler - he is a little different :). I'll sneak into their room late at night and find Tyler has crawled in bed with Dylan and has all but kicked him out of his own bed. They love do each other.

It's a girl! ... Probably

That's right, it's been like 3 years since I've posted on my blog. No big deal. I only post 30 times a day on the coupon blog, you think I could manage 10 minutes for my family! Sheesh. What's wrong with me?

Anyway, on to the reason you, and by you I mean the two people who actually will look at this blog, are reading this post. I'm 16 weeks and it's a girl, maybe. I meant the ultra sound tech said she was sure, but it's just too good to be true! I'm just not sold :). Don't get me wrong, I would have been 100% happy with a 3rd boy, but a girl is SO much fun! I can't stop buying stuff. I guess it better be girl.

You can decide for yourself:

I bet your glad I shared that ultrasound picture huh? And just because my boys are the cutest ever and deserve some attention:

Fun in Arizona: (Uncle Todd and Tyler finding "Skippers")
