Apparently I can't pull off everything I see on Pinterest. I attempted a mini photoshoot at home with just me and both boys.
This was my photo inspiration: (after posting these, I realized they got cut off on the right edge, click on the inspiration pic to see the whole picture)
and this is what I got:

Maybe when Dom gets a little older it'll be easier....I hope :)

way too much time some time on Pinterest....and it has won me "the best mommy ever" award a few times this week. We made a soccer game with a shoe box lid, a piece of construction paper, 2 pipe cleaners, a cotton ball, and 2 straws (as seen here).
here and here, I knew he'd be excited. He cut out the planets (ok, he cut out one and I did the rest)....
Then he used a pin and poked holes in this paper to make constellations. When it got dark we shined a flash light behind them and saw the "stars" on the wall.
I'm so glad he loves to learn and do cheesy stuff with me. I hope Dom wants to join us one day!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY HANNAH! Last Monday was Hannah's 4th birthday. I can't believe it! Mostly, because it means my baby is gonna be 4 in less than 4 months....holy crap.
She is such a sweetie and has the greatest laugh I've ever heard.....and Vince lights up when she's around. We love you Hannah!

Pretend that I posted this before the Steelers lost to that Tebow dude. We had a good time getting all of us dressed up to match (Daddy was matching too but he avoids pictures like the plague).
Probably would've been better to videotape the dance b/c still images just don't do it justice...oh well, maybe next year :)
Sorry, I've been slacking on the blog for the past few weeks. Work is INSANE....more insane than usual (thanks to Walgreens) so I'm plain exhausted by the time I get home. Anyways, sweetie pie has turned 4 months during this time. Here's a few "I'm 4 months old now" pics for your viewing pleasure :)
I thought for sure it would be a hit but he just seemed "ok" about it...not nearly as excited as I was :) I think when we get to the really good stuff he's gonna love it.
For comparison: I found a pic of Vince in the same highchair (below). I don't look at Dom and think they look alike but when I see baby pics of Vince, I realize how similar they are....except Vince is 9 months old in this picture and about the same size as Dom.

Yes, I call him DommyPoo and yes, I'm sure he's gonna hate that nickname but if you saw those big sweet brown eyes and nuzzled those soft chubby cheeks you'd understand. He's SUCH a good baby. Have I ever mentioned on here what a good sleeper he's become? I think I've been afraid I would jinx myself. We put him in his crib at 7pm, he falls asleep on his own, and he sleeps until (about) 6am. I give him a bottle when he wakes up, put him back in his crib, and he sleeps for another 1-2 hours. It's amazing and we are incredibly lucky. Here's some pics of my sweet baby:
