Caution... The cuteness of these pictures might melt your brain. Don't say I didn't warn you!

This past weekend, Jack, Madi and Mommy went to Arizona to visit Baby Nate. We went to get pictures with all the kiddos and had a great time. At Grandma Lines' house we had dinner sunday night and all the cousins got together and put on their halloween costumes. Madilyn is the cutest baby bunny ever and Jackson is a scurvy (cute) pirate. Arrggghh... Just to brag on myself, I made both of their costumes and they turned out really good. I will post some closer pictures of Jackson when we go to our ward Halloween party this week. Hope everyone is having a great week. I am happy to report that after the combination of two antibiotics, tylenol and motrin Jackson's ear infection seems to be finally clearing up. Yeah!!!

What has the Lines' family been up to?

Hey everyone,
Well time is really flying. Miss Madilyn will be 1 month old on Friday and is getting smarter and cuter every day. Jackson is really getting cute with her and very protective. Last week, I put her in her crib so I could go to the bathroom, and she started crying. Jacks scaled the crib and was trying to give her the binky and showing her toys to get her to stop crying. It was super cute. He also lays down next to her during tummy time and sings to her or talks to her. It has made me proud of what a sweet boy he is and so caring. Madilyn continues to be my little snuggle bunny. Her favorite position is laying on her Momma's chest snoozing. She is by far my snuggliest baby. This weekend we went up to St. Louis to can applesauce and apple butter and go picking pumpkins. Got some really cute pictures of the kiddos. Jackson is enamored with pumpkins and carries his pumpkin around in a wagon. The only downside is he tries to throw them like a ball. Jackson is currently battling bilateral ear infections, he has had a rough couple of days. He spiked a temp on Monday, and napped for 4 hours and layed on the couch so we knew something was up. After a visit to the pediatrician's office on tuesday, tylenol, motrin, benadryl and being on antibiotics for 24 hours is feeling much better now and is back to terrorizing the dogs. Well gotta run- keep leaving me comments love hearing about how cute my babies are ;) PS. I am wearing regular non-maternity jeans!! Yippee (they are my fat jeans but still...) and I can wear my wedding rings again. Hopefully when I get the ok from my doc in a couple of weeks I can start working out to get rid of the curtain of shame.

Miss Madi update

Ok, so do I not have the cutest babies ever?!?

Pooh Bear hat. Cute but too big so Mommy spent all day pulling it away from her eyes.

Ok, so everything went well. If you want the gory details, you will have to call me personally. Miss Madi is now 10 days old and doing very well. Her big brother loves trying to feed her fruit snacks, fish crackers and fruit cups while his mommy's back is turned. He also loves to rub his face against her head and give her little kisses. He does not like that his mommy is not allowed to pick all 28 lbs of him up, but can pick up 7 1/2 lb baby sister. We spent all last week at Grammy and Grampy's house and now we are home with Grandma Lines here. I am sleeping in 3-4 hour intervals, and forgetting to fasten my nursing bras. I walked around for like 3 hours last week wondering why my brand new nursing bra was so unsupportive only to realize both panels were down. Tee hee. I also got tired of trying to take messages at my mom's house for people who were calling to schedule timeshare presentations whilst nursing. So one day after the same lady called 3 times, I told her I was getting a pen and gave the phone to Jacks to wander around talking and pressing buttons until she hung up. Problem solved. Well, keep everyone posted...
