I'm on a roll with posts today!!!


I was trying to catch a few cute pictures of the boys this morning. I seem to pull out the camera whenever they're together like this....poor Caleb, the only pictures we're going to have of the poor child is ones with both of them!

Anyway, Sammy was holding Caleb and he gently put his hand on Caleb's head and then layed his head down. I quick snapped the picture before they moved...or so I thought! Wouldn't you know Caleb spits up! And when have you ever seen spit-up caught in mid air like this?? Lunacy!

My husband thinks I'm nuts!!

So we had this pig roast at church yesterday. I was signed up to bring a dessert. It was a PIG roast...what else would I bring???

Piggy cupcakes of course!!!!!

Caleb

Here's a quick video of Caleb. Of course he barely giggles while I'm taping him, but before and after he giggles a ton! Kids!! =)

Mommy's little helper

Sammy loves to help me do laundry. It's great for me because he keeps me going all day long and we get lots done, but he doesn't understand that we have to wait for it to be done to put more in! He also drives me crazy sometimes when he "helps" fold! Oh well! It's good that he's learning to help around the house! (he also loves cleaning windows so I'll have to post a picture of that soon!)
In this picture he had one of Daddy's t-shirts over his head. Silly!

My baby is growing up!!


Hebrews 5:13
For someone who lives on milk is still an infant and doesn't know how to do what is right.


Ok, he's still an infant, but he is now eating solid food (if you can call soggy baby cereal solid!). He had his first taste on Saturday. He seemed to really like it. Granted he only eats a Tablespoon or so, but that's not bad for just starting out!

Labor Day....From a Mom's Point of View!!


From Wikipedia:
Labor Day is a United States federal holiday that takes place on the first Monday in September. The holiday began in 1882, originating from a desire by the Central Labor Union to create a day off for the "working man".

hmmmmm..........how about the working stay at home mom??!!
I remember like it was yesterday the first time I realized that moms don't get a day off. Sammy was just a few weeks old and I woke up in the morning sick as a dog. I remember thinking, "wait...I don't ever get a day off. No sick days, no personal days, nothing!" On call 24/7! That's a mommy's life. Moms know the real meaning of labor day...we do it every day! We don't even get weekends off and they created a special holiday for themselves! Silly!
Sometimes when I don't feel good or didn't sleep well because of a newborn waking during the night I'll say to my wonderful husband in the morning "I'm calling out sick today". He lovingly rolls his eyes and says "yeah! right!"
Don't get me wrong. I LOVE being a mommy. I truly never imagined that I would get married, let alone have these two beautiful boys! Growing up I always had the recurring dream that I was the single jet-setting aunt who dropped in on my sister and her beautiful home with kids running everywhere. I would give them gifts and snicker as she made them all dinner. Then I would leave and that was the end of the dream. Now I find myself doing what I never imagined, but always wanted!
There's no better job than being at home with my boys. I have no desire to ever go back to work! I love being with them!
I guess they can have their Labor Day, but I'm throwing a stink next Mother's Day if I don't at least get to take a nice nap!! =)
Happy Labor Day!
