I Heart Faces: People's Choice

This week's challenge at I Heart Faces is People's Choice and they have asked to enter your Best Face Photo of the Summer. I decided on the above photo of my Grandpa Kruschel holding his Great Grandson, Elliott. We were getting ready to head out from our annual "Kruschel/Waska" Family picnic and Great Grandpa was getting one last snuggle of Baby E. I absolutely LOVE the smile on my grandpa's face as he is checks out the newest family member!

Life just goes right on ticking...

This summer was completely, incredibly CrAzY! It is over; it was full of family adventures (a few trips to Duluth, our annual Lanesboro Family Vacation, a week-long trip to Hayward, among them...) and family heartaches (Grant's Grandma Dorothy's passing after having a heart attack and having to put down our beloved dog Mr. Pibb, who had lymphoma). We are finally getting back into what feels like a "normal" routine around here...although the next few weeks are jam packed with life. That is such a blessing, life has to!

I Heart Faces: Touch of Sun Photo

To my little man Brendan, there is nothing better than riding a train. In fact, he tells me quite frequently that he wants to drive a train to the North Pole to get presents for everyone...LOVE IT! Here he was in all the great riding-a-train glory on the 4th of July 2010. Just a hint of the bright sunlight beaming down on him; the train car we rode in was used in the movie "Iron Will" and is pretty old. I've posted it today for this weeks' "I Heart Faces" photo contest...check them out by clicking the link below...

Happy Tuesday!

We celebrated B's 3rd B-Day at the end of May with a Pirate themed party. I made the cake!

Riding his new tractor!

Snuggling brothers...B LOVES being a big brother and wants to hold E whenever he can.

B and his buddy-since-birth Ben at the Princeton Splash Pad! Ben's mom and I were in Childbirth class together, due around the same time and we both had our boys a month early. It's been so much fun to watch the boys grow up together!

I LOVE this picture. Elliott's middle name is Frederick, after my dad's middle name. (Brendan's is Alan after Grant's dad's middle name...we've got a pattern going on here ;D) My dad's middle name is for his dad's brother, Frederick, who we call Fritz. Here are all 3 Fredericks together! Fritz was so excited when my dad told him about Elliott's middle name and he couldn't be happier to get a little snuggle time with him at our recent family reunion. Great-Great Uncle Fritz and Great-Great Aunt Dee Dee were calling E "Snickle Fritz" and cooing at him all the while! :D

Oh so busy with 2! is busy with 2 boys in the house. (Pretty sure that's now going to be the theme of my blog ;D) I'm very happy to report that we are still doing great here at the Lindberg Household. E has been a very easy baby; I am so lucky! We had his 2 week appointment on Monday, which went very well. At birth, Elliott weighed 7 lbs. 7 oz., when we left the hospital he was 7 lbs. 4 oz. and at his 2 week appointment he was 8 lbs. 10 oz.!!! He is definitely a good eater and thriving here at home. He is now 20 1/2 inches long (19 at birth); the appointment was quick as he is a happy, healthy little boy :D

Me and my boys...I set up my tripod to get this picture of me taken with the boys. Sometimes a mom's gotta do what a mom's gotta do!

A couple of weeks ago, we had my sister and her kids up to play and meet Elliott. It was great fun watching B, Layney and Liam all playing together and Layney LOVED holding her baby cousin!

On Sunday we took B out to fly his first kite. It was the perfect weather for it and we all had a blast.

Brendan is a great big brother! He is so helpful when I need him to be and he LOVES his baby brother. He's always telling us "He's so cute!" and "We have a happy baby!". I really can't wait until they can really play together...I can already picture them both doing silly things to make each other giggle. :D

That's my quick update for today. Gotta get B outside to enjoy this BEAUTIFUL weather!

A wonderful Mother's Day!

This is how my Mother's Day started today. Brendan had to hold his baby right away this morning and I got this super cute picture on my ipod :D. Things are going great having Elliott at home and we are slowly getting into a routine here. We have been very lucky that, with the exception of 2 nights last week, he is sleeping fairly well at night for a newborn. I will post more later...Happy Mother's Day to all :D
