Today nobody threw up on me.

Today has been a good day.

Today my hands are burnt and rough from clorox.

Today has been a good day.

Today I didn't wipe up any bodily fluids off of the floor.

Today has been a good day.

Today we had popcorn and gatorade for dinner.

Today has been a good day.

Today I watched Elmo and Diego with my kids.

Today has been a good day.

Today I dispensed zero meds.

Today has been a good day.

Today I have yet to take a shower.

Today has been a good day.

Today we opened the windows to let in fresh, clean air.

Today has been a good day.

Today my kids took long naps.

Today has been a good day.

Today my house smells like lysol.

Today has been a good day.

Today the germs seem to be at bay.

Today has been a good day.

We're preventing rednecks here, one hair cut at a time

Somebody got their first haircut this weekend. He was a little hesitant about the situation, but I assured him he did NOT want to be known as mullet baby in the preschool nursery at church.

And here is an after shot. He did really well, as good to be expected from a 9 month old! We didn't get too much cut off of the top. I just told the stylist to take off all the party that was going on in the back. Unfortunately, when the mullet left, so did a tiny little bit of his baby look. But, I didn't even cry, y'all. You should be proud!

Stats & Miscelany

In a very crazy attempt to save myself from 2 trips to the Dr office, I scheduled Jackson's 4yo checkup with Ace's 9month checkup. It went smoothly, but only because my very intelligent mother knew I might need an extra set of hands and volunteered. Have I mentioned I love my mom??? She is such a blessing to me and everyone she knows.

Anywho, the boys did very well and got the A-OK from the doc. The appointment wasn't just a well checkup for both boys, because we all haven't been so well. Jackson and I had strep throat, and Ace has a nasty cold and ear infection. Jackson and I are very much on the mend. This has been the mildest case of strep that I have ever had and it seems to be the same with Jack. Ace, although in great spirits has been feeling pretty lousy. Poor baby, I hate it when my kids don't feel well.

The stats are as follows:
Jackson- 35lbs 3'4". 50% for both weight and height
Ace- 25.14lbs 30.5". GREATER than 95% for both weight and height (off the charts, literally)

I love how everyone tells me "He'll slow down once he starts crawling" or "He'll slow down when he starts pulling up". He's been crawling for nearly 4 months, y'all. He's been pulling up for about the same amount of time. Oh well, I love it. He's our little football player. Believe it or not, Jackson was nearly that big at 9 months. I'll have to pull out his records to confirm, but he was a big boy too.

I failed to post some halloween/ birthday party pictures. Since Jackson's birthday is so close to Halloween, we just had a costume party. Our awesome family and friends were not tardy for the party. (couldn't resist). Look at all the great costumes!

They say it's your birthday!

Where are you going little one, my little one?
Where are you going, my baby, my own?
Turn around and you're one
Turn around and you're four
Turn around you're a young man walking out of the door


Happy 4th birthday to my sweet, sweet boy. Your Daddy and I are just head over heels for you. You bring pure joy to our lives. Your sense of humor, intelligence, sweet spirit, and loving heart amaze us on a daily basis. I don't think I could ever explain to you just how blessed I feel to be your mother. You are growing into such a lovely little human being and I am so happy to have a front row seat to watch that happen.

I love you to the moon and beyond,
