The little boys and I have been having a fun, crazy weekend at home. We were able to go watch my nephew play baseball yesterday morning. It was nice to get out of the house for a bit and see family. This morning Sammy has been refusing sleep (again), so there has been a lot of screaming filling our ears. Then Elijah fell off his bike, face first onto the pavement. It took me an hour to get his lip to stop bleeding! Now he has a nice fat lip. Every time he touches it, he remembers what happened and starts crying. It made me terribly sad that after it happened, the only person he wanted was Dan. He asked for him about a thousand times. :(

I haven't had a chance to take any pictures, but hopefully I'll get some taken soon. My hands have been full! Being a mama to two little boys is crazy, but tons of fun. Before Sam was born, I kept thinking I would dream longingly of my bed rest when I didn't have anything to do except stuff my face with ice cream, but that isn't the case at all. I wouldn't change anything, except maybe having Dan home a little bit more. I love how crazy our house is and I love my boys!!

I am trying really hard to get Sam on a schedule of some sort. He had THREE 4-hour stretches of sleep last night, so that is huge progress. His daytime napping doesn't really have any rhyme or reason yet, but we are getting there. Gotta run...Elijah is yelling at his book and Sam is hungry again.

Poor little Elijah, hope his fat lip will soon be gone.

Can't wait to see some new photos of your two little men!

Have a nice week!

Hi Megan!

Just dropping by to let you know I was thinking of you and your adorable little guys! I'm glad to hear that you're enjoying the crazy life of kids along with the rest of us! haha! Hope Elijah's lip feels better soon, and that Samson allows you some sleep! Love your newest photos - they are so precious!

Lots of Hugs & Prayers,

Wendy (& Emma, too!)

Elijah's star glasses are SO stinkin' cute!
Gosh...what can I say? Welcome to the wonderful world of crazy boys! (wait until they're peeing on everything)
It's a good think they're so cute...
Three 4 hour stretches of sleep is huge..
he'll get into a rhythm soon...and you will sleep again...
and then, Elijah will be old enough to get up with him and play with him so that you can sleep in!!! Just hang a calendar and start counting the days!
(oh gosh...maybe you should go ahead and start teaching him how to make a bottle and climb into his crib...
I'm ALL about the kiddos helping the younger ones!)
(I'm just giggling in my head picturing that one!)
hugs to you guys!

It would be rough with hubby working and away! I only have one and we always have a rough week when my hubby's work keeps him extra. Thank God for their jobs though! Poor little guy - I bet that bike wreck hurt! Hoping today there is a few more naps for baby Samson!

Woo-hoo for 4 hour stretches! He'll be sleeping 8 hours at a time before you know it! I love Elijah's "Oh mah gosh...", sounds so southern! I am really looking forward to watching Sammy (if that still works for you guys) his little double chin reminds me of my little chunker baby! Talk to you soon!
