mommy can i go to the train store??

that is what I keep hearing daily =)

Brigham was overjoyed when Grandma Holland from Colorado took him to the train store.
He could care less that the purpose of the visit was to buy more Thomas trains and some more track. He was just content to stay and play for hours at the train table!!

They did get him home, and he has been playing and reconstructing a railway ever since!

The visit with Grandma was great. I did feel a tad bad , that she didn't get much time with little Tatum, as Brigham was vying for her attention.
They played puzzles and played trains, and read books, and played with stuffed animals, and basketball and all sorts of things.
Tatum slept thru most of her visit.
Actually that is pretty much all she does. The transition from one to two children has been a sinch!!
Tatum gets up 1-2 times a night (with 5 hours in between) and sometimes, its me waking her up just to make myself more comfortable!! LOL
( i forgot about the waking to a pool on the sheets!!)

We had several outings last week, while grandma stayed with Brigham.
We went to lunches, and to grown up meetings and to bible study.. and yep, she slept right thru all of it!! =)

I am still feeling great and totally contribute this to the fact that I had no drugs.
nada, zip, not a single one.= NO side effects.

not to say I did not FEEL pain during the labor and delivery.. but when it was over it was over. and FAST>
with Brigham, I had drugs right away, and then the epidural. never felt a twinge of pain. I had to be told when I was having contractions and when to push.
I felt lots more sluggish after his birth.

Well, I have been scrapping a little the last few days. I'll post some soon. trying to get my mojo back, and up to speed with pregancy pages, and Brig's third year so I can start those BABY pages.... Oh , I can hardly wait.
HL has paper on sale this week... so I know there will be a trip to get some pink and girly papers =)
Yesterday was a HOT day and so Brigham and his friends Parker and Sadie played in the sand box and in the sprinkler while their mama and I sat w/ the baby in the AC.
I am thinking of getting the lil pool out for this afternoon, supposed to be in the upper 80's.

I'll leave you with a sample of the amazing work that my friend Jennifer captured during Tatum's first photo shoot last Sat.
I am just in awe. They make my heart melt. She is just the sweetest

If you click the link to Jennifer's website, there is a slide show of many more adorable pics. I just don't know how I am going to choose.
The one of her in the little white knit dress was mine as an infant. Then one of her in the basket in the sundress was my mother's dress as an infant!!
