Growing Up

I've been thinking about writing for awhile, but you know how it goes, busyness gets in the way... Since my first post, both of my babies have hit milestones. My son, Hayden, has improved on potty training. He did really well for about a week, and not so well last week! I think that he figured out that he didn't really need his Mommy to go pee pee like a "big" boy, and decided that he wasn't quite ready anymore. Bummer.

My daughter, Addison, started sleeping through the night at 3 months old. Another big step. Unfortunately, this hasn't continued. She is still in the pack n play in our bedroom because Hayden is still sleeping in his crib. My husband, Lloyd, has to get up very early for work during the week and I think that his alarms (VERY LOUD alarms) are waking her up because she slept thought the night on Friday and Saturday. Oh well, hopefully Hayden will transition soon to his "big" boy cars bed.

We had a great 4th of July at my parent's house. We had dinner and I took a delicious dessert,
Sopapilla Cheesecake, that I found on the LPM Blog. My brother-in-law, Matt, said it changed his world forever! Hayden went swimming in the pool and had a great time, he has been hesitant about the water before. Then, we watched the fireworks show on TV from downtown Nashville. I feel so fortunate and blessed to live in a free country, even when the gas and food prices are skyrocketing! Here are some pictures of us from the weekend.
