Look Who's Gangsta

I found a baby picture of me that I thought looked so much like Eli. So I recreated it, and here are the results......

Eli 2008

Yeah, not so much, but trust me in real life when you are holding him, he looks like me, I promise!

Owen also wanted in on the action. He looks 6 years old in this picture. Everyone said once you have another baby, the older child will look SO much older to you. I now believe them.

Eli 3 Weeks Old

Here are some funny new pictures of Eli. I was finally able to snap a few while Owen was taking his nap today. He is defiantly filling out. The last one was the only smile that I was able to catch and his eyes were shut, can't get them all.

Pros & Cons of Private Blogging?

Decisions, Decisions??


So I need some advise. I am debating going private. It's not like I have a ton of traffic anyway, but I post a lot about my kids and the more I think about it the more freaky it gets. On one side I am pretty psycho about protecting my kids and I don't want to be stupid about putting my kids out there. But on the other hand I myself am a blog stalker and I like finding old friends and even friends of friends who have cool ideas, stories, and pictures. I am at a loss. Also, I don't understand exactly how it works. From what I do understand, I have to get everyone's email address and then send them an invitation to view my blog. But Once I make it private, how does someone contact me to ask for an invite. Am I suppose to not let everyone in the world see my blog, but then give them all my email. I noticed that Katie of Katie's Cafe made a new email address for her invite requests. Personally, when people make their blogs private, I sorta feel like maybe they don't want me reading it, so I don't request an invite thus I no longer keep up on their life. I would hate to think that "normal" people who want to see about my not so exciting life, would not ask for an invite. It's too bad people can't just not be creepy, cause I like that I can keep in contact with friends and family by way of the blog. Maybe social networking should be left to myspace and facebook, and blogs, at least this one can be reserved for just friends and family.

I would appreciate any and all input in making this HUGE decision.

more pics of my boys

Things are good around our house. The new baby is starting to figure out the whole sleeping at night thing. He is eating well, and going to be out of all his cute new 0-3 month clothes before we know it. Owen has begun to acknowledge Eli's existence, a step in the right direction, and mom is hopefully finally getting over this cold (which by the way has kept me from sleep far more than this newborn!) So all in all we are good, and getting better. Thanks to everyone who has stopped by, called, and or emailed in the past 2 weeks, we appreciate all your kind words and support.

here are a few cute pictures of my boys:

Ya, as you can tell from these pictures, I decided to stop getting Owen dressed, its really cutting down on laundry!

here's Owen hanging out with his new BFF, T.V

Cutest Dad Ever!
