Hayes was in love with her. He was so sweet and wanted to look at her all the time and help with everything! Also Jason said I have to give him photo credit for this so; PHOTO BY JASON MICHAEL SHIFLET!!! ;)
Raising these boys the right way- super smash brothers and donkey kong on the N64
I went to a baby shower while Jason had the boys and B slept the whole time. Go Brighton!
I was trying to copy her face but obviously didn't do very good. Also, my dad asked if I photoshopped my eyes bigger in this picture haha nope, I just have eyes like the powerpuff girls!
Most people know I've nannied for these little boys for the past 4 years and I do weekends with them when their parents go out of town! I hadn't seen them since June or July (can't even remember) because they travel a TON every summer, so when their mom asked if I was up for a weekend with them, I said yes! I was a little nervous just because I've been working hard to get Brighton on a schedule (it's working by the way, she sleeps 5.5-6.hours straight at night then wakes up to eat and goes back down right away for 3 more hours. Little angel baby I tell ya. Schedules are heaven sent.) So it would just mess up her schedule because I didn't want to make the boys stay home all day in honor of a schedule. It really wasn't that bad, though!! Like, with the schedule. She did all her naps in the car if we were out and still slept at night like a dang champion.
Anyways though, it was fun having the boys over for the weekend and seeing them interact with Brighton! Hayes loves her and was always trying to make sure she was happy and sang her lullabies if she got fussy. Ryder didn't really give her much attention haha he was more interested in other things. On Saturday night he called her a 'he' and Jason was like "Ryder, you know Brighton is a girl, right?" and Ryder goes "Oh really??!" It was pretty funny. Their mom had a baby a week after me which was so nice because the boys were already used to having a newborn around and understood that she has a lot of needs.
Jason was an all star and took care of the kids when I had to go to a few different things on Saturday. It was a tiring weekend for all of us! Those boys have so much energy and they say the funniest things!! Remind me not to have 3 kids for a while because all I want to do right now is sleeeeep. ;) I always wonder how people have more than one kid because right now, all of my attention goes 100% to Brighton! But at the same time, I keep trying to plan when we'll start trying for baby #2 and Jason won't have any of that nonsense.... yet...
