Bumbo Practice
I know! Bumbos are for 3-14 month babies, but Kingston loves to sit up more so than lying down. I can't argue with that, because I would much rather have a wide view of my surroundings than a view of only looking up or to the side. Soo because he supports his head so well I decided I would give him Bumbo practice... London gets a kick out of it and puts her little chair next to him and chills.
I love watching both of my little bugs playing together in the limited ways that they can at this point. Kingston coos and smiles with London, and London asks; "Mom what is he saying"? I make up something simple and then ask her if she can remember baby talk, I think she is catching on because Kingston is starting to say some pretty silly things as London will translate for him. London gives endless kisses to her little brother and trys to always make him happy when he cries! She is a great Big Sister!!!

Keeping Cool
Yeah! It is hot here in Vegas, so we are always looking for creative things to keep cool. One thing about Las Vegas is the Leisure Services around the City. The resources for Parks and Recreation are limitless. We have several pools close by to keep cool in. Today we went to our favorite pool park, it is perfect with a beach entrance, slides and not much of a crowd! Did I mention it is FREE?! Who could ask for a better reason to play in the water and have fun?! London loves it as the kid area goes to 2 1/2 feet and she can play, splash and pretend like shes swimming without the threat of deep water. Kingston was just chill! I carried him in my Baby Bjorn, and he slept the whole time!

Happy 2 Months

Kingston is 2 months todate! In many ways I cannot believe how fast time has flown, in other ways it seems like yesterday I was still huge waiting for his arrival! I can't imagine life without him in our family. Although it has been a slight adjustment with two needy people, I wouldn't trade anything for the moments I have with my bugs,(even though a few hours alone would be nice once in a while.) I am grateful that Kingston is such an easy going baby, it makes everything that much enjoyable!

We love each little milestone, Kingston is such a happy boy and is always smiling his BIG smile! These last couple of weeks he has been cooing up a storm. I was hoping to grab it all in one video, but with all my luck my memory card was full before I could get his jibber jabber stuff.

So for all the grandparents who are far away and for our cute Daddy who is still in Sacramento, here is a moment of our smilie boy, and a little bit of jibber jabber below.

It is always amazing to be by the Ocean. I love the Northern California Coast and the many beauties we can enjoy! Hope to be back soon! We are leaving back to the dry dessert on Saturday without Rob:( He will still be working on the bathroom for another week. I have got to get back home and get on a routine with these little bugs! I have loved being so close to family and will miss them all! Thanks for the great 4 week vacation whewwww!(all smiles)

Any man can be a father. It takes someone special to be a dad.

What Is A Dad?

A dad is someone who
wants to catch you before you fall
but instead picks you up,
brushes you off,
and lets you try again.

A dad is someone who
wants to keep you from making mistakes
but instead lets you find your own way,
even though his heart breaks in silence
when you get hurt.

A dad is someone who
holds you when you cry,
scolds you when you break the rules,
shines with pride when you succeed,
and has faith in you even when you fail...

Just a quick shout out to all the Dads in my life... Robbie, the most amazing Dad to our sweet little ones, to my fun loving father, Dave and to the best father in-law I could ask for, Mark! Have a fabulous day Boys!!!

Busy Times
Waking up to my precious little bugs

We are still in NorCal playing! Rob is working hard on this bathroom for my Dad so we will be here another week in a half. It has been great spending time with family, having a pool to play in and of course Grandpa and Grandma time!!!

This picture cracks me up! London is showing you her knee pads, under her princess dress while attempting the scooter...silly girl!

Uncle Randy is excited to have another boy in the family. Kingston is the second little guy on both McNicol and Lueck side. Yahooo for little boys.

Kingston time with Aunt Christina

Our meaty BOY!!! Oh! How we love him!!!!

Cousin Alyssa

I haven't posted anything on my little bro's baby girl Alyssa, because I didn't have any pictures. Alyssa is exactly 2 weeks apart from Kingston. Proud parents, Lance and Jessica McNicol. She is a petite little girl, next to Kingston she looks even more petite. Kingston is our little teddy bear growing healthy and strong. I had my brother Lance step on the scale with Kingston on Saturday and Kingston is already 13 lbs. I love having a meaty newborn, he is already so cuddly. Anyhow, here is a recent picture of Alyssa now 3 weeks.
