Gangsta in the Making!


Jameson just cracks me up! He's so cool and calm. And tonight, he showed his gansta side. Who knew! Maybe he was reacting to my new "do". Yup! I got my haircut again. I don't have much of a life outside of my boys these days (not that I'm complaining), so getting my haircut is the best I can do to keep it interesting! :)

Man, are we good lookin' or what! ;)

Drool For Sale!

Five bibs a day - lots of laundry
One piercing stare - heartbreaker in the making
A perfect line of drool - priceless

Sleepy Smiles

I caught a precious moment on video yesterday! Jameson and Jackson were having a nap in Mummy and Daddy's bed. Jameson started giggling so I ran for the camera, but all I got was his sleepy smiles. No giggles on this video, but his smiles will warm your heart! Enjoy!

We're Big Boys Now!

My happy happy boys!

Our boys are getting so big! They're sitting up like big boys on our leather couch (sniff). Where did my little babies go? As much as I love watching them grow, I also wish I could freeze precious moments, such as this, in time. I wish they could be little babies forever! Looking at them now, I can't believe they were only 4 pounds when they were born! Time is flying by .... I feel so ... old!

Big chair, little man, and one lonely guitar!

Sweet Dreams Are Made Of ...

Jackson was having one of his favourite dreams - about milk of course!

Please don't wake me! I'm slumbering!

Diapers Anyone?

Living with twins means twice the love ... and twice the diapers! I love when diapers go on sale! This time, I filled up my cart and bought 18 packs from No Frills! That should last us a while, I hope! Thanks Auntie!

Is it too early to start potty training? :)

Again, He Is Not A Toy!

Wanna know why Jameson looks so sad in this photo?

It's because he knew Daddy was going to put his pants over his head that night! Don't ask why! And don't look at me! I'm just the photographer!

Daddy .... WHY?

Here's a clip of my boys enjoying a few laughs on us while we played peak-a-boo with them!

The Baby Whisperer

That's right, it's Auntie! Who knew she still has that magic touch! Auntie was clearly born to (and will always) be a great Mother! She has natural motherly instincts. No wonder we loved hanging out at Auntie's when we were kids!

Nighty Night!

I enjoy having a snuggle or two with my boys before bedtime! Trust me, they like it too! :)

Quality Time

Jax and Jaz got to spend some quality time with family over the weekend! The boys met Santina for the first time and Jax spit up all over his Nani. And check out Pappy's smile ... priceless!

Doctors? Nah! They're going to be STARS!

Daddy's Rocker and Mommy's Star (how fitting)!

So, the boys had a fun day with the film crew from The Mom Show! The guys (Otto, Eric, Matt, and G-Man) arrived at 800am and stayed until 430pm filming a "day in the life" of The Russell Family! It's going to air sometime next year!

Why our family? Because we are super cool, that's why! And the boys were so well behaved! We couldn't have asked for a better day! Even though this particular talk show focuses more on Moms and their wee ones, they did a special piece on Daddies and spoke to Wesley about being a father and how music plays an important role in their lives (given that he is a rockin' musician and instructor). Wesley also got to bathe the boys on camera, which was great, because it meant I didn't have to do it that night! Sucker! ;)

The crew from The Mom Show with Jackson & Jameson

I actually wasn't sure if I wanted to do the show at all. But I quickly realised that it would be a once in a lifetime opportunity that we couldn't pass up! And it'll be something we, as a family, can look back on later in life and enjoy! We can't wait to see it! We'll let you know when it airs! :)

Do You Like My New Hat?

I love waking up to this type of sillyness! It makes tired mornings so worth while! And I swear, I did not do this! This is all Jax!

First Jameson, Now Jackson!

"Hmm this place seems familiar"

Two serious infections in 5 months! What gives! This time, Jackson was the victim of a UTI (urinary tract infection). He started crying early one afternoon, just like Jameson did when he got sick, and we just knew something was up. We gave him some Baby Tylenol and watched him for the afternoon. By 400pm, he was back to his normal self. But at 700pm, a fever spiked and we knew we had to bring him in! He spent 4 days at McMaster on IV antibiotics and will need 10 days of oral antibiotics now that he's home. He's been in good spirits despite his bout with diarhhea and diaper rash. Unfortunately, we missed out on celebrating Halloween with the boys so we celebrated the occasion at McMaster! They wore their hospital scrubs (I know, very appropriate) and mingled with the ladies err ... nurses!

Jackson & Jameson, our little heartbreakers!

We've learned what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger and we've been through so much with these boys already ... nothing really phases us! I guess that's a good thing. We're just hoping that this is it for the time being. As much as we love Hotel McMaster, we love our home better!
