I think at 8 weeks out, we are finally starting to find a groove with this whole ‘two kids’ thing. I say that now, and in about 2.5 minutes things will change and I’ll be trying to stay above water again. But in all seriousness, the newborn fog lifted around 5-6 weeks and my body has officially adjusted to the sleep deprivation, and I feel like I have a handle on things. Getting out of the house is easier and staying home is easier, and we have had less tantrums and tears (these are not exclusive to the 2 year old). Why am I telling you this? I don’t know…. on to the eye candy!
With summer in full swing we are spending a lot of time outside, and when we are inside you can almost guarantee someone is in just their underwear.
You might have already seen these on my Facebook, but I can’t stop gushing. I left the room one afternoon and came back to see Archer holding Gryffins hand and chatting away to him. I obviously sprinted for my camera, and boy am I glad I did. I know their moments together won’t always be so tender (why are boys so rough?!), so I am happy to have this memory in the bank.
To get my creative juices flowing one afternoon I thought I would do a little mini lifestyle shoot with the boys (story of their life), so we went outside to do our favourite things and I tried to get a few more details than I normally would.

The week ended with some Father’s Day festivities. Believe me when I say we have some pretty awesome fathers in our life – Eric, of course, and both Papa and Pepe are strong influences in our life. I am thankful everyday to not only have these men for our boys, but also for me.
Meme and Pepe couldn’t bring a gift for Eric without bringing one for Archer. He has barely let Optimus Prime out of his sight since he got it.
I can’t leave this post without saying how great of a father Eric is. I have never been more proud of him and the way he continues to rise for us. He is the most hardworking guy I know, and he is already instilling that into the boys. I knew on our wedding day that I was making a good decision, but never did I expect this much good to come of it.
Happy belated Father’s Day to all the great Dads out there!
