I'm 4 now!

It was great! Big C came running in and told me I must come see right away! I of course went running out, and he went and jumped on the swing and started to pump! Big C was so excited that HE had learned how to pump and no longer needed to be pushed (wow, what a bummer) ;0)! He went on to explain that, "One day I was 3 and the next day I was 4, and all of the sudden I could pump! It is because I'm 4 now!" Amazing isn't it, lol! It was great!

I had told my son last week that a package was coming for him in the mail, wow, big mistake!! Everyday he has gone out to get the mail, and when the package was not there he would ask me when it was coming?! It was cute though to see him anticipate the arrival, and to learn that sometimes we just have to be patient! My sister and brother-in-law sent my son a book (they always give the nieces and nephews books, it is great!) for his birthday, they do not just get any books but my sister will hunt for books that we had and LOVED when we were kids. This year they got him "From Castles in the Clouds"by V. Gilbert Beers. It is about Maxi and Mini Muffin along with Bible stories (there are multiple stories in this book). They use the stories about the Muffin family to help our children understand what the Bible stories are saying. Anyway, it is a great book!!! I don't think it is in print anymore so she has located them on Amazon (correct me if I am wrong)! Big C loves books, although I am not sure who was more excited about this one, him or me! It was fun to read him the stories though and look at the pictures (I always thought the pictures were so beautiful as a kid), and reminisce about my childhood!

Pray for Little C!:)

Sooooo, little C has been basically not eating for two weeks. Not totally, but he went from eating 3 meals plus oatmeal before bed, and nursing or bottles mixed throughout the day. Now he eats 2 meals, breakfast and oatmeal before bed and has only one bottle a day (along with diarrhea). So you are probably wondering why I let it go on so long? Well, he started out with a really bad cold so I at first blamed it on that, he then started getting 2 more teeth (at the same time of course) so I thought maybe that was why. I finally called my doctor today and she wanted to see him. Long story short they will be running a bunch of stool tests on him (good times will be had by all), and if those are clear then they will maybe start him on Zantac. Little C has a VERY sensitive stomach (genetic sad to say); I could not eat any dairy, broccoli, or lettuce while nursing. My theory is that he is getting a stomach ache when he eats, thus he does not want to eat. Now we will wait and see what the tests say, and then go from there. I am not worried, but I do feel bad for him. He is still very smiley and happy, just a little more sensitive and wants to be held more (can't blame him:( So, if you think of it, please pray for him and that we can get it all squared away quickly.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

On a side note: Check out my sister and brother-in-law's blog, she started blogging 2 or 3 years ago (she was the first one in our family, and the first time I had ever heard of it) and then stopped a little while back, but has now started again! Yea! So, let her know you stopped by!:)

Good Times!

So, the last couple of days I have been suffering from a severe cold/allergies. My youngest has also has a cold, poor guy! I had "neb" him at my parents because colds always settle in his chest (since his RSV). He was so good while we used it! I am now on allergy medication so hopefully in the next day or two I will feel like functioning again! I was glad though, my husband had his 10 year class reunion this weekend and thankfully I did not get real bad until after it was over! It was a fun weekend though! My parents watched the boyz at a friend of ours cabin so we could go (thank you , thank you to them)!! I was glad that I knew a lot of his friends from high school, I feel for those that come and meet everyone for the first time. I love the fact that we are both from the same area and know a lot of the same people, it is great when we reminisce! The last pic is Big C with his shirt on like pants and he had his underware on his head, he was laughing hysterically on the floor when I took this picture! Good Times!:)

Sweet Moments in Life

So, I have had the privilege of staying at my parents house for the last 1 1/2 weeks. It has been so relaxing!:) I was able to capture one of these sweet moments! Here are my boyz playing! Big C is showing Little C how to use the toy!! I love these moments as a mom; yea there will always be those moments when they don't get along or whatever, but these are the moments you remember and love!:) I have great memories of myself with my siblings and am excited for my children to have the same! Family is so important and has shaped my life greatly, my prayer is that it will also shape my children's lives in their walk with the Lord.

Announcing!!!!! My mom!!!!!!!!

My mom is now a blogger!! Yea! Come and join her journey into this new world of blogging and on their Timeless Travels!!! My mom is one of my best friends, she is young and one cool grandma!!!

Summer weekends!!!

WOW!!! It has been a little while since I have blogged!! The days have just been flying by, we have something every weekend it seems!!! It is ok though we have been having a good summer!! So, I am going to go over what we have been doing for the last week!! The first weekend in August we were up at a cabin by the lake in our home town. It was great, we did some swimming, tubing, fishing(Carter:)),biking, and relaxing!:) This past weekend was our anniversary, our 5th!!! Yea! I feel so blessed to me married to a man who not only loves me, but is a man who loves the Lord and is committed to serving him! We had a great weekend!!!! We were up at a cabin (the same one from the weekend before) with no kids, in 4 years we have not had a weekend like that other than when we were doing youth ministry stuff (and that does not count)! Our kids were with Grandpa & Grandma W at "Grandpa and Grandma Camp"! All of the cousins were there and they had a blast!!! What a blessing!! What memories!!! We came to get our boys and celebrated our oldest b'day with Grandma!! They had a blast!

The first weekend- Carter was feeding the duck!

We went out on the boat with G & G E. and Uncle it was a lot of fun!
