Brand new woman!

I am so thankful that lately we have gotten mostly all smiles out of this little man! Goodness for this past month or so JR and I would look at each other ALL the time and say, "Does he ever stop crying?!?" He literally was fussing if he wasnt being held, HATES the car seat and was fighting naps like crazy. Well now....


We not only have a boy who naps BUT also HE IS SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT!!!! Ah I could scream its so glorious haha. The last 4 out of 5 nights he has slept from 8:00pm-6:30am and I cant believe it! With Griffin it took until he was 5 months old before he conquered this and I know it has a lot to do with us getting him good and full before bed! I had learned with Griffin to make sure he took a bottle his last feeding so he would get good and full without falling asleep first. So with Carter we did the same and because he is such a piggie he also started eating extra before bedtime. He eats at 5:00, 6:30 and 8:00 before going to bed and this has worked to get him good and FULL!!!


It is crazy how much uninterrupted sleep will change your life :)



Griffin and I were so thrilled that we took a trip to Chickfila to celebrate while some people were looking at our house. He had his first ice cream cone and LOVED every lick! Check out this adorable video of how it made him giggle :)

I have also been taught something simple and yet profound by our little 2 year old this week. Listen to the song he literally sings 100 times a day.....
