Happy Birthday Hot Stuff!

Happy Birthday to Grant! Finally we are the same age. I hate that I have to be older than you for 6 months each year. Now we are both oldies! haha

Some reasons why I LOVE you --

*Because we are best FRIENDS

*You work so hard to provide for our family (I've known you since high school and I've seen you grow from a boy to man. I think you are amazing)

*You are the best daddy. Drake and Logan adore you and I'm so happy that you are so involved in their lives. You can never resist Drake when he wants you to play with him and that is why you are sooo sweet

*Because you are HOT (especially your smile)

*You act so tough and masculine all the time and don't like to be all lovey dovey but I know that you are teddy bear underneath it all

****There are many more reasons but I hope you know that I love you more than you can possibly imagine**** Happy Birthday BUG :)

Help! Advice Needed!

My little Logan is 8 months next week. I'm still exclusively nursing him and I'm SO ready to start the weening process. For the last few months he has been waking up in the night (sometimes every 2-3 hours) and there was a time he was sleeping through the night so it feels like we are taking a huge step back. And in the day he nurses every 3 to 4 hours so I feel like his appetite is growing and I can't keep up. Here's what I've tried so far.... I've been trying to give him more solids, but he is still only eating 1 and 1/2 to 2 a day. I offer him bottles w/ formula and he REFUSES to drink any. He cries and screams and then I usually give in. He sometimes pulls at my shirt and I feel if I don't ween him now, it will be so much harder later on. He will drink an oz or so of apple juice from a bottle so it seems he doesn't like the taste of the formula. I called his Dr and they suggested going cold turkey but warned me that there will be a few really hard days ahead but if he is hungry enough he will take the bottle. I'm not sure what to do?!? I guess since I'm already up so much in the night I should just do it and not give in. And if it were just Logan I think I would be trying harder but I have Drake too. And I am not sure I can handle TWO fussy boys at the same time. If anyone has any advice I will take it!!

Beach Time

When we visit Florida, I think my favorite thing to do is go to the beach. I love the sand and the water and the warm sun. It is so relaxing and I wish I could go everyday! The only bad part was the nasty sunburns me, Whit and Grant got on our backs. We were so busy reapplying sunscreen on the babies, we totally forgot about our backs! Sick! Anyway here are some of our beach pics :)

Disney World

We had such a fun time at Disney World. It was a lot of work to go with the boys, but I'm so glad we did. There are sooo many pics so here's a slideshow. After Disney we spent most of our time at Whit's house and at the beach. So more pics to come!
