Easter 2014...

 Easter was so much fun this year, we are truly blessed! 
The weather was absolutely perfect, which made it even better. 
Thank you, Jesus, for an awesome day with our families! 

Y'all, I thoroughly enjoyed buying Easter for my boys! This is getting close to becoming my favorite holiday, right there behind Christmas...
I focused on summertime toys, bathing suits, matching summer outfits for my boys, etc. I loved setting it up perfectly for my sweet little loves.

He did not know what in the world he had done to deserve all of his new goodies! He was pumped!!

First things first... his soccer ball of course! 
 Then he had to test out his new trucks!

 Honestly, I didn't know if we would be back at church for Easter considering we had a 6 week old. But we really wanted to go so I got there outfits together last minute. Graham wore his coming home outfit and I had got Gage some summer clothes so I put him something together.

This is our attempt at family pictures, best we could get! 

After church we went to Lee's parents for lunch, hunted Easter eggs, and had a Easter egg hunt with our neighbors.

Somebody was not too happy about outside pictures... it was time to eat! 

I never thought Gage would be so excited about hunting eggs but he was so excited and knew exactly what to do! 

Showing Grandaddy his egg!

Lee's parents with all their grandchildren...

He was so proud of all his pretty eggs!

Decided to do some boy things...

Our sweet neighbors put money in plastic eggs... He was funny running around and around the house searching for eggs. Lee would sneak and hide an egg in front of him so he could find it again...SHHHH;)

 My family came over to hang out and we grilled steaks and had strawberry shortcake for dessert!  
It was a delicious change! 

Our dream has always been to have babies together... dreams DO come true!;)
Sweet cousins telling secrets...

Loving on my precious angel...
 

Graham was very curious about our egg hunt;)

COUSIN LOVE... My heart may explode!

Of course, we had to take a little dirt bike ride to finish the evening! 

Hope you had a wonderful Easter with your families...We are blessed beyond measure!

OTHER UPDATES:
Sweet boy is drinking 5 ounces every 3-4 hours, He moved up very quickly! He is a WONDERFUL SLEEPER... praise Jesus! 7-8 hours every night! He is a wonderful baby but a little more needy than Gage was...mommy's boy already. He is wearing newborn diapers and advanced to size 1 towards the end of the month.  He was smaller than Gage at birth so I got to use my left over newborn diapers and got a LITTLE more use of our newborn clothes BUT he is growing quickly! He naps randomly throughout the day, does not nap as well as Gage did but sleeps well at night so I'll take it! Sleeps in the car well too so that works for me! 
 
I have always heard that going from one to two is diffucult and I have to say I could not agree more.  At first it was CONSTANT and no time to chill. Now we have our little routine down and it has gotten MUCH easier! Going places has also gotten easier as well.
Everyone asks about Gage... He transitioned MUCH more smoothly than I ever imagined. He is SO good with him. I have a post planned to focus on their sweet brotherly love. How about how different they look from each other?! TOTAL opposites! 
You can honestly see Gage's love for his brother.. my HEART IS FULL!

I am so in love with my boys. I have never been more happy in my life... I am constantly thanking God throughout the day and begging him to never take this feeling away. 

ONE HAPPY MOMMA...
