a Friday morning dip

As the Haffners wind down Amos's week of Noah Break from the office, the elder Haffner boys ventured outdoors for a dip in the morning (before temps hit 90 again, geesh Mother's June...cut us some slack...and these Tstorms could settle down a bit too while we're on topic) while Momma and baby Noah caught some ZZzz.

First things first...fill it up. (Not that Landon really cared, but Amos did heat up the 54 degree water with some piping hot water from the laundry room. But, as mentioned, he could have cared lips and all.)

Why not fill up the watering can too.

... and cool down the slide

Slippery when wet. (Hey, that sounds familiar.)

Take a break...for 1.8 seconds.

Dadda knows awesome water tricks.

Looking for "airplanes" with "glasses" because it's "bright bright bright."

Look who came out to check out the action.

Back in the house, bathed, lunched, chomping down one last grape and headed to the potty and a nap.

more of our first week with Boatboy

Snuggling with Dadda! He is so little! We went to the doc Wednesday and he is up t0 8lbs 1oz....and we started at 8'4 so we are doing great! Boatboy has no problem eating....especially during the night!

A little smirk for you!

Sleeping in his bassinet.

Great Grandma and Grandpa (Amos's Mom's parents) visited the boys Tuesday.

Our sweet LA hammin' it up for the camera!!

Boatboy wide awake.

our famous little racer

Landon's Great Grandpa found a familiar face on the front cover of the bioenergies section of his recent Farm World. Pretty cute cover model and obviously a green thinker.

a likeness

They'll never be able to deny each other, that's for certain.

Fairly obvious point here, but....Boatboy on left and LA on right.

We sure see it. What say you?

More on Boatboy

As Thursday passed into Friday, Amos put the final touches on birth announcement designs. Will it be a Boatboy or will it be a censored?

A couple short hours later, another beautiful healthy baby boy enters the family.

Wide eyed and ready for life.

Boatboy's entrance board in postpartum.

Dadda getting some cuddle time while Momma gets some rest.

Pretty sure he's being forced to listen to emo right here. It can only get better, boy.

Momma loves him to pieces even with a fussy face.

LAcame to see his little bro for the first time. He loved the buttons on Crystal's hospital bed!

Papa and Nana watched LA for the two days we were in the hospital. Not only did he have a blast, but we never had to once worry about his well-being. Well, there was that really bad storm and they did have him in a closet for a couple hours on Friday night. Yeah, that part was a bit unnerving. Anyway, thank you thank you thank you!

LA kisses his new little brother. This is like a 12 on the Cute Meter scale that only measures to 10.

What can a busy toddler do in a hospital room? He can work on his baseline jumper. Ice into the trash can! Two points!

I've got my eye on you.

Proud Father.

Packed up a half a day early and headed home on Sunday morning...

...where big brother LA had a nice surprise for his "Baby Noah" when he woke up from his nap. An elephant. Cleverly named...Noah.

Safe, snuggly and sleepy at home.
