This boy is teething, and although he looks happy he has been a did bit grumpy, he just wants to cuddle all the time, I guess like his daddy!  He is so cute, whenever he gets upset instead of crying he just starts giggling!  I know he needs to sleep, but its just so dang cute it makes me want to keep him up!

This is a very very rare moment!  I told halle that she could stay up and watch TV with mommy because she has been such a good girl lately!  She started cuddling with me!  Thankfully a friend was over to capture this unique moment that never happens!  I sure do love this rambunctious girl, she keeps me active and I need that!

You'll never find another father as good as Greg!  I can say that and I know many people that feel the same way about their hubby's but really Greg makes every moment of every day matter and count to his kids.  I am so thankful that he is so good with them, and I feel so blessed that he loves them as much as I do.  Our favorite time of the day is morning time!  Greg is home for a little while and we spend every second enjoying each others company.  

On the road again, we are always on the road again!  We moved on sunday from Tallahassee to Mobile, and it wasn't to bad, we are just exhausted.  Sunday is our only day that we have as a family, because greg is gone every other day, so to be driving for 5 hours was a bit of a toll.  Halle had fun riding with her daddy, and Dax about lost it, being with me in the car!  He is such a good boy and patient most of the time, but sunday was the first day he was not very happy about where he was, or what he was doing!  We  LOVE our new place to say the least, it is SOOO nice!  Greg did an excellent job in picking this housing out!  We are having fun, but I cannot wait to be back in the comfort of my own home, it will come soon enough!

St George Island

We have been very fortunate because Greg is such a good talker to get a job where he travels every summer, and this summer we got to go to sunny FLORIDA!  It has truly been amazing, and I am so glad that we get to make such fond memories with our kiddos!  I am so proud of Greg for providing for our family and I am so thankful that he is beside me through the thick and the thin.


I think about all the fun silly weird stuff I used to do with Halle, when she was just as little as Dax is now, and I do not want him to miss out on all the silly pictures later!  I cannot believe that my little man is almost 5 MONTHS!  He is such a big boy and I love him oh so much.  He is so happy and giggly all the time and I am so glad that he is a member of our little happy family.
And yes I am well aware I look like an idiot, and Dax has the same picture in all the photos!

She's 2, a beautiful 2!

I feel so blessed lately to have such a wonderful family! I would have never imagined I would be so happy being a mommy! Life is different and so exciting, and very very tiring, one day I might just maybe catch up on my sleep! But I am so grateful for Halle and I pray that she knows how much I love her! She is a bright ray of sunshine in our lives and we love her dearly! At her 2 year Dr appointment she was pronounced healthy! Which I already knew! We were also given the fun fact that height at age two can be doubled and thats the height they will be with they are older! So Halle is predicted to be 5'8"!! Holy cow! She is going to be so tall! Even if she is near that it is going to be awesome!


Since Greg is such a incredibly hard worker we are able to go on vacation with his work every year! We are a lucky couple and it is so nice to get away before the craziness of the summertime hits, its almost here and I am starting to freak out!
This was Daxs first experience with the water! He was afraid his daddy was going to drop him! I know that Greg never would, and soon he will learn that as well!
Our friends were also blessed with a brand new baby boy and they brought him as well so Dax had a friend!
Believe it or not Dax had a WONDERFUL time! He loved being by the ocean and the sound of the waves made him Zonk! Even though in this picture he was mad two seconds before that he was sticking his tongue out at us (which is his new favorite thing to so:))
Our flight home was LONG, but our little man is so patient and relaxed he is such a great and wonderful baby! We had fun, and thank goodness for Mama Small for watching our beautiful baby girl! Next time I think I would rather go with just Greg and I, but I enjoyed my sweet baby boy!

His First Trip

Well Daxy Boy got to come with us this year to Cancun because I am still breastfeeding, and he is such a good boy! He had a great plane ride and now Dax and I are just hanging out in the hotel room. Greg works so hard every year that they send him on trips and I had the bright idea of wanting to go, I am now reconsidering my not so great decision to take an infant to a resort where spring-breakers are everywhere. Anyways, pray we will survive.

We have definetly had a very big adjusting period going on in our home! For better or for worse, Hal is learning to share her time. She is such a good girl, and great older sister. She is so silly and we love her personality, she found the vent the other day, and it was so cute to watch her leanrn how the air makes her shirt fly! And yes she also is teaching herself how to go on the big girl potty! She is such an independent thing and we are so proud of her.

This is our big boy! Growing everyday!

This was one moment that Halle and I got to spend cuddling and laughing! We are so happy and we love spending time together!


He is such a handsome little man!

Here are the newborn pics that dev took a month ago! Weird to think its been a whole month, but then again not to weird because the bags under my eyes tell you that it has been a month! Im a tired mom, and I cannot wait until this little man sleeps longer. He is quite the cutie though, we love him and in one month he gained over 4 lbs! We are so proud of him.

Dax Greg Jacobsen

On Wednesday we were blessed with the most beautiful little boy! We are so blessed to have Dax Greg Jacobsen in our lives and we feel so honored to have him in our family. Greg is already very smitten with this little man.
Our little girl, and always my baby, is very happy that she now has her own little baby to take care of. She makes sure that she gives him endless kisses everyday and helps mommy with many tasks. She is our happy girl!
The birth went very very well! Much smoother than Halle's birth, the day went by very slowly as we waited for our little boy to come and be with us. He was born just after 8 at night on wednesday, and he weighed 6 lbs 15 oz, and he was 20 inches long. Everything was great, and our little family grew! Halle is slowly welcoming this little bundle of joy, she is still trying to figure out if he is here to stay!

She loves her brother, I just have to keep her from smashing him! I think about it often that it is a wonder any of us are alive with siblings, we are so rough, which makes us tough I suppose! Especially if you think about me, after all Ryan was my older brother!

Thanks Aunt Dev

Everyday Happenings

This is what our home feels like because this little girl fills it with such joy and happiness! She is so cute and so contagious. He giggles warm my heart and there is nothing more warming to me than hearing her laughing throughout the house. We found this weird thing on halles toe the other night, kind of like an ingrown toenail, and so we needed to pull it out! She was so brave and didn't cry at all even though I could tell that it would hurt, I know I would cry! So afterwards Greg got a sucker for her, and because he is a sucker she got 2!!
While we were in Idaho, her other Love Bruno, and her would play all the time, from the moment Halle woke up she would say BRUNO, and yell his name, then she would take care of him! So cute! Halle has begun peeling her own cuties, and this morning I handed her this cutie, she went over sat next to Bruno, and began peeling. With every tiny peel she would hand it to Bruno, and he would so softly take it and swallow! When she finally got to the actual orange she looked at it, contemplated, broke it in half, and gave half to Bruno! My heart melted! It was so cute, and I am so proud of my little girl and her willingness to be so good!
We have been so blessed with being able to have Aunt NON live with us! Halle has such a close bond to her, and they have so much fun together, this is just one of the things that I find them doing on a daily basis.

There is beauty all around!

One of Halle's favorite things is to put her shoes on, she is so Fancy! We had her do a mini shoot so we could capture the little simple things that we love so much!
I am so blessed to have such a beautiful girl! I love her, she is so happy and so cute, and I could squeeze her all day long!

Our Little Big Girl

We have so many happenings, hence the lack of posts that have been going on. Gregs Job is very busy, and Halle is so active that by the end of everyday I want to collapse and sleep, mainly because we are about to be blessed with our second bundle of joy! Halle is the light of our life, and we just adore everything that she does! Even when she is being so naughty, Greg and I secretly smile at each other because she is so adorable. She has learned that we are suckers for her words! When she says WOOWRRY (for sorry!) My heart melts! We are enjoying her age so much and we feel so blessed.
This outfit is from my Grandma, and it is so cute! I think that her Aunt Dev has taught her so well because she lined up against the wall and let me take the picture without hesitation!
One reason she may love her picture taken is because she figured out how to work our cell phones and she loves to scroll through all the pictures of herself! So any day now we are expecting our next great adventure and we are so thrilled!
