7 months

Wow, I cannot believe it's been 7 months since I blogged last.  What a slacker.  Our lives are full of busy, busy days as well as full weekends.  Our house is currently trying to get over sickness while we balance daily life.  I will attempt to catch up these last 7 months to my best ability.

Bode Ray Brucker entered our lives and has completely taken us by storm.  He is the happiest baby EVER!  Brad and I were sure we'd be getting payback as Avery was a wonderful baby.  But he has been even better.  I think God knows what you need when you need it and he has blessed us with a wonderful boy.  A mother's love is a strange thing.  I never understood it completely until Bode was born.  How I love my children and my heart has expanded even more for Avery. 

Here is Bode's birth video (no live birth shots! EEK!)

I was at home with Bode for 7 weeks and time was well spent getting into our new life and routine.  He adapted to our home life right from the start dogs and all!  He is definitely a little piggy who loves to eat!

April brought Bode's first holiday and we enjoyed Easter Sunday at our church.  Our first outing as a family of 4!

Bode turned 2 months old!  He is sleeping great and eating even better.  He loves to play under his Play Gym and watches the lights closely.  Avery loves Bode and is such a great helper to Brad and I.  She can change diapers, fix bottles and put Bode to sleep. 

My first Mother's Day as a mom of 2 was perfect.  Brad surprised me with 2 James Avery birthstone rings.  (Avery and Bode's birthstones.)  They are beautiful and I wear them stacked everyday.  We then had a delicious lunch at Charleston's and celebrated my mom as well. 

Another one of my Mother's Day gifts was a photo shoot with my 2 precious babes.  We shot down in the Paseo District and the colors turned out so beautiful!

June, July and August to follow....
