Lots of updates...

Okay, so it's only been about 7 weeks since I've done a post.. How pathetic?! Where to begin... Alexis is almost 6 weeks old, and weighs 8 lbs. 10 oz. She is a really great baby. She has a two hour cranky period each night, but compared to Cameron, that's nothing! She is very alert when she is awake and is already starting to smile. Cameron is a great big brother. He likes to help: sometimes too much so! He is always anxious to give her her binky, feed her a bottle, kiss her, give her a toy, etc.

Cameron starts pre-school in a few weeks. We are doing joy school, with 5 other moms and their kids. For anyone who's unfamiliar with how joy school works, each mom hosts pre-school at their house for a week. Each week it rotates to another mom's house. So each mom only has to teach 2 days a week, every 6 weeks. We all met up last week and have our schedule all planned out. We are teaching the alphabet; 1 letter a week. I teach the second week, so my letter is B. I've got some ideas, but if anyone has any of their own ideas: let me know! We have at least 1 field trip a month, with a Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas party. There are 3 boys and 3 girls in the group, and they are all very sweet, cute kids! It will be a wonderful experience for Cameron to socialize more, and gain some more independence. (Plus, it won't be so bad for Mommy to have a nice break twice a week, either!)

Other big news: Tyler is going back to school. He starts Wednesday, Aug. 22nd. He is taking a few general classes, and some pre-requisite classes to apply for the radiology program. He will be going to school full time (13 credits!), and working part time. The great news: He finally was able to quit his wonder bread job! He is returning to work at Peterson's (the cabinet shop where he used to work) tomorrow, and is so thrilled to be doing cabinets again! We are so thrilled to be able to have a 'normal' schedule and to see more of him!

Well I think that about does it for now. Check back often, guys. I'm hoping to make these posts fairly regular from now on. We love you all! Enjoy these random pictures. (Sorry there's so many!)

This is one of my favorite pictures of her. She was just a few days old here.

This is our favorite outfit on her. Courtesy of Amy Marshall!

This is Cameron, Abby, and Paxton. They're riding a warehouse cart throughout Cabela's! Haha

She must like this position, since it's the same pose she has 2 pictures up!

Cameron wore Tyler's hat for 2 days straight...

So we finally bought him one of his own!

Not the most flattering picture, but it shows how alert she is!

Me in my new Hollister shirt. I love, love, love it!
