Not to overwhelm you...

...but in order to catch you up on pictures from the past couple weeks...
(since i've been slacking, sorry!)...
there are quite a few that you have to look through!

Lets start with Sawyer, since he's easier to photograph these days... 
still not "easy", just easier than Bennett!  
Soy Sauce (as we call him) will be ONE on TUESDAY!!!!!!!!!!! Say Whaaaaat?!!!!
I work on his birthday, but I get off at 2:30 (love my schedule!), 
so we're hoping to take a walk to the park when I get home (weather permitting),
 and then...
of course... 

 Napping with his favorite bear, a Valentine bear from Grandma Lori & Grandpa Dean

 Sweet mohawk, dude!

A great jacket from Auntie Marta in Alaska!

Hey there neighbor cows!

I'm being quite literal when I say we can't leave Sawyer unattended for more than 10-15 seconds, Why you ask?  Watch this video:

And that was actually slow for him to get up there. 
Not joking.

Now a couple pics of Mr. Bennett.  
He has been thoroughly enjoying the nicer weather here lately, he only had one day being stuck inside due to rain in these past couple weeks!
I have also been thoroughly enjoying this new app I got on my phone that puts font on my pictures...
You'll probably be seeing more of these in future blog posts :)

I came home from work the other day and Sawyer was napping on Daddy's lap so I swept Bennett up and we ran outside quick to enjoy some Mommy-Son time in the SUNSHINE!!!!!!

Never ever ever ever will be able to put into words how much I love my babies.

And now a bunch of "two-peas-in-a-pod" pictures :)

Popsicles for "bed-lunch"
(does anyone else use that term, other than my immediate family?!!)

 Oh and here is Sawyer's first "selfie"
(I cannot get over how much he looks like Bennett in this pic!  Anyone else agree?!!)

Family walk to the park the other day:

 And a family trip to 49 Degrees North!

Erik and Bennett did some skiing and Sawyer and I did some spectating.
 Sawyer always tends to get in a daze when he's up on the mountain... he must love nature so much that it just overcomes him!

And for the GRAND finale... a video clip dedicated to Amanda Olive... just so you can't say I didn't warn you about this journey you are about you embark on!!!!  
It's the best and most crazy scary amazing journey EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  

I'm talking about the "two sons" journey just so everyone is up to speed.  Amanda is due in March with her 2nd baby boy, and I know she'll see this because we love to keep up on each other's blogs :) :) :)


  1. I miss your family and your boys SO SO SO very much that this post made me cry to see how big they are getting... Love you! -Auntie Em Vogen ;)

    1. It makes me cry seeing them getting so big too Em :( WE MISS YOU AND LOVE YOU TOO!!!!!!!!

  2. Awesome photos and videos. I have a childhood profile picture which looks a lot and I mean A LOT like Bennett in the photo with his bug hat playing in the snow. I'll have to show it to you sometime. Lots of love from Grandpa Dean

    1. Now that you say that Dad, I can see the resemblance to you in Bennett's profile! I really want to see your picture now. Lots of love back at you :)

  3. Ok, Amy - I've been WARNED! :) (It's a little late now anyway, there's no going back!) Every time I read your blog, I feel like I'm looking into a crystal ball into my future, and I appreciate the heads-up! What I learned from this post: Brothers are the cutest little people of all time, Baby boy #2 will be WAY tougher than Avery (he will have to be!), and it's time to get rid of our glass-top end tables, sooner rather than later ;) Thanks for sharing - again, I SO wish we could all play together!!

  4. Oh my goodness - our lives are SO very similar. And you are right, 2 boys is the best - the brotherly bond is an amazing thing. Your family is beautiful. I love being able to check in and keep up to date with you all! You do a great job on your blog Mama! It's been too long for sure. We don't have any plans in the near future to be up that way. But we are totally jealous of all the amazing snow you been able to play in. We will let you know as soon as we head your way. You do the same if ever you are in our neck of the woods. We miss you all! xoxo
