Tracee let Keegan take one of her shirts that she took from Rees. He wears it all the time to bed. This is him eating breakfast in it... like a weirdo.
My old man baby (Keegan looked like one too) with freakishly long legs:)
Brothers hanging out
Poolside with Punkin...
Boogers from swimming and shivering. Gross!
Practicing kicking in a tube.
He is such a good little swimmer now. He wasn't crazy about it at first but Julianne kept throwing him in and now he loves it. He even makes swimming pools out of blankets at home because he misses it so much. One thing I really love about my big boy is his manners (most of the time). For example, instead of just screaming "I want Mom" he would say "Excuse me, excuse me." Then Julianne would ask him what he wanted he wanted and then he would say "I want mom." We all got a kick out of it.
This has been quite a change!!! We are all adjusting the best we can. Braxton was one month old yesterday. It went by fast with Keegan but this is going by even faster. My recovery was crappy painful but it was over fast. I couldn't stay down very long this time though because of a certain three year old. I am trying to stay busy so I can stay sane. The mother guilt has kicked in times 10. I feel bad for not playing with Keegan, then I feel bad for not paying attention to Braxton, then I feel bad for not getting Keegan outside sometimes, then I feel bad for forcing Jamon to take him outside for me (not that he has to be forced... he is the most wonderful thing and I love him to pieces). I'm sure most of you can relate to all the fun guilty feelings we moms experience:) I think it means that I just want to be a good Mom. Jamon is keeping me grounded, as usual, so I haven't shed too many post labor tears.
I am very glad to have some really good friends up here. One has introduced me to the library program up here. We went a lot in Phoenix to the story times but up here they do movies and craft days and invite singers/performers and all sorts of stuff. It's been really nice to take Keegan somewhere to play with kids and still get some air conditioning. Yes, I am craving it. My dorm is so FREAKING hot. I am sweaty the second I get out of the shower. Only public places have air conditioning up here and no one was really ready for the heat.
Keegan is a wonderful big brother. It's funny to hear him say things that I do to try and console him like, "I'm coming" or "It's ok, it's ok" or "there we go". He is even trying to give me some pointers. Today the baby was crying and Keegan came over to tell me that he wants me to sing to him. I started to and then he cut in and said, " No! He wants I Am a Child of God." It was pretty sweet. This not working, being at home thing is different and challengin for me but I would not change it. Right now Jamon and Keegan are napping together, Braxton just fell asleep in my arms so now I am typing with one hand and I can hear pine trees blowing around outside my open window:) I love my job.
