One month update

I cannot believe how incredibly lucky I am to have the family and friends that I have.  We were granted a good week with my mom in town taking care of us, then Jases parents.  Kendyl misses having pals to play with and have sleepovers in her room.  My neighbors here are amazing and are always quick to make sure im still sane in the blue house. 
Easton (Figaro as Kendyl is adament his name is) has colic or something like that.  He may have a milk allergy, but it has not been "diagnosed" but for the mean time im off dairy.  Oh how I miss my morning cereal!  All we know is he likes to cry.  Other than the crying, we love the little guy and we think he is so cute and a perfect fit into our family!  Kendyl loves the heck out of him and loves to give him hugs and kisses.  She also loves to wake him up, because I guess having a quiet house is not up her alley.  Me on the other hand, I feel like I get a fresh breath when its quiet....unless its too quiet, then I know miss bug is into something she isn't supposed to be.
I hate to admit but Kendyl has been watching a little more tv than I would like her to.  Heck, I am too.  Something to help drain the crying noise, and the nonstop feedings!  Im lucky to get a shower.  I struggle during quiet time if i should shower, clean, rest, do dishes, wash clothes, etc.  Im lucky to get one chore done a day, whether its a load or two of laundry to getting us breakfast lunch and dinner at a decent time.  Seriously, how people have twins or more than 2 kids or kids super super close in age, I have no idea.  Maybe Im missing to secret.  If you have it, pass it this way. 
Easton is a little piggy and weighs in at 10 lbs 3 oz at his 1 month check. I have no idea what percentile that is because my doc said as long as its going up thats all i really care about.  I do know its somewhere around 50%tile.  I love her pediatrician.
We were also able to get our pictures taken by the INCREDIBLE Renee Jacobsen Photography.  She did such an amazing job.  Money well spent!  Seriously Florida friends, get on her! 
Oh and....its time to say goodbye to our blue smurf house.  Im a little sad to say goodbye.  Im a lot happy toget more space.  Kendyl HATES the idea of leaving the blue house and wants nothing to do with it.  As bad as this house sticks out as a sore thumb, I secretly hope they never paint it back to a color that isn't so....out there. 
Jase and I are doing great.  He is busy working and hunting.  Im busy being a mom.  I just signed up for the Disney Princess Half Marathon at Disney World.  I am beyond excited.  I chose my princess to be Ariel.  Now if I can only find the time to train!  :)
Below are just 4 of our pictures....
