On the Band Wagon

Go Steelers!

The past 2 weeks have been full of fun in the snow, play dates, baby showers, catching up with work (since we were off almost all of last week), and FOOTBALL. As most of you know, Steve's brother Andrew is the long snapper for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. We are first and foremost Bucs and Falcons fans for obvious reasons. After that, we are Steelers fans. My mom's family grew up just outside of Pittsburgh. They are big time Steelers fans. When MJ was 3 months old, my Aunt Amy sent him a baby Terrible Towel and he cheered them on to win the Super Bowl that year. So now that the Bucs and Falcons are out of contention, we are joining the Steeler Nation!

Don't worry, Uncle Andrew- I'm still your number one fan!

Please note that I am posting this prior to the AFC Championship game - the confidence of the Jets scares me. haha :)

Let it Snow

I love the snow!

Snow Day! We got atleast 6 inches of snow here last night. The roads are terrible, with more sleet and freezing rain coming our way. Steve had to cancel their work day due to the awful road conditions, and my office closed for the day. The good news is we are having a ton of fun playing in the snow!

"More snow angels, daddy!"

On second thought, I'm pretty comfy just laying like this

We could not believe how much snow had accumulated overnight. Our house and street looked gorgeous this morning. The snow has a light layer of ice on it, so it was a little hard to build a you can see, we made snow angels instead.

Our house covered in snow

Our little street was so quiet this morning

We don't have a real sled since it never snows here, but I did have some boxes from Amazon (my favorite online store) that we used as a make-shift sled. MJ went down our hill on it, but flipped out at the end and landed face first in the snow. It was hilarious! Needless to say, he didn't want to do much more "sledding" after that. haha

Mommy and MJ

Even Ty joined in on all of the fun

Daddy and baby Ty

We will be enjoying more snow later!....

Ty is 3 months old!

So happy

I have been a blogging fool lately! So much has been going on that I just have to post. I cannot believe that Ty turned 3 months old yesterday (January 5th). The past few months have really flown by. He is doing great and growing like a weed.

Hi everybody!

Ty is now a great sleeper. He sleeps from about 9pm to between 7:00 and 7:30am straight (thank you, moms on call)! He is almost exclusively breastfed, but I am starting to have to supplement a bottle of formula per day because he is eating like crazy (atleast 36 oz a day). He likes colors, fans, and anything that moves. He absolutely loves his big brother - his little face lights up when he hears MJ's voice, and he immediately smiles and turns to look at him.

Just chillin' in my Boppy

My best friend from childhood, Kim, came to visit last week. She brought her beautiful baby girl, Ella, to visit. Ella is 2 months older than Ty, so it was fun for us to be pregnant at the same time! Here are a few pics...

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year - 2011!
Carrie, Katie, me, and Erin

We brought in the new year in Jekyll Island at Carrie's wedding. She is one of my best friends from college, and we relived the "glory days" all weekend long! I was truly honored to be one of her bridemaids. It was a beautiful wedding with perfect weather (sunny, 70s, low humidity) and great food. Her husband is a marine, so they did the arch of swords and everything!

Carrie and Burke - the beautiful, happy couple!

Steve, me, Katie, and Ben

A special thank you to my parents, who watched the boys ALL. WEEKEND. LONG. They headed back to their house on Sunday with plans to have a drink ASAP. haha :) MJ and Ty enjoyed the field trip to Grandma and Granddad's house.

Grandma was sitting on the chair with Ty and Belle (see dog in corner of chair)...MJ couldn't resist joining in all the fun!
