Just Another Day

So I thought I would post even though nothing exciting is going on. My dad is in Kuwait and is headed over to Iraq sometime today or tomorrow. I guess that is about all that is happening.
Noble slept for five hours last night without eating though I did have to force him to eat after those five hours so he could have slept longet but I was nervouse about him going so long without eating. It was nice to get that much sleep.
Brady is working on finishing our laundry room. At least all the sheet rock is up so right now we are working on mudding all the cracks and things. I actually got to help because AJ was asleep and I got Noble to sleep for a half hour. I really like helping my husband but I don't get to do it often with two kids. I hope we can fifnish up our laundry room soon so that we can get our basement done. Our basement is going to be the kids play room and there is one room down there that will become my craft room. I have enough stuff to fill the room too so I am excited to be able to work on stuff and not have to pack it up or keep kids from unpluggung the sewing machine. Anyways, I am real excited to have that done but we want to finish most of upstairs first. Oh for all those who didn't know we bought a fixer upper house in May of last year. It has consumed my husbands time most weekends but he has done a good job fixing it up. He is proud of his new fireplace he fixed up and rewiring the house. It is nice to have wires that aren't as old as the house. The house, by the way, was built in 1910. It has what we call character!! i.e. creaky florrboards and cracks in the plaster wall!! We love our house and we do enjoy fixing it up.
Well, I better make lunch because we get to go to Preston today.

A Two Year Birthday!

So we now have an official two year old. Yeah!! We celbrated his birthdya yesterday because Sundays our rather busy days for us. He enjoyed all his presents. I know he especially liked his new piano keyboard because he is always wanting to play on my piano. He didn't seem to like the shirts he got. He just through them to the side and moved on to the next present.
My youngest seems to have some serious reflex problems. I can't figure out if he needs to go to the doctors and get some medicine or if I should just wait it out. We'll see how tonight goes with sleeping because last didn't go with sleeping.
The break AJ had from me was good. We have done a little better. Fewer fits and less intensity is better to deal with.
This is AJ getting ready to attack his cupcake.



Apparently he thinks you have to eat the microphone in order to get sound out. We are going to work on that.

This is AJ after he went to Lowes and made a squirrel feeder. He looks like he is ready to go and help daddy fix up the house.

A Break

So AJ went to grandma and grandpas house for the past two days. We picked him up last night. I realized that it could not come at a better time. All we had been doing was getting frustrated with each other and so there were a lot of tears shed in our house and not a lot of happiness. So while he was gone I was able to remember all the cute things he does instead of yelling at him, which happens almost everyday now.
I was also able to get my taxes done and go to the doctors without having to chase after him, I was actually on time to an appointment for once. Now that he is back, I am hoping that I can kinda start all over with him and we won't start straight into fit throwing. He seems to have hit the terrible twos, since his birthday is on Sunday and he will be turning two I guess that makes sense. Well, we'll see how much this break has helped us all.

It's a Monday

I don't mind Mondays except I get used to my husband helping over the weekend. I really like having help with the 2 kids and then all of sudden I am left to do it on my own. I manage but I don't get to take care of myself. All mothers understand that. There is no shower, lucky if you get an uninterrupted meal, and hope that you get dressed at least (PJs though are quit comfortable all day).
Grandma has volunteered to take my oldest for a few days. SO he will be gone 2 days this week. I hope I can get a few things done, like catch up on sleep. Our 5 week old has not figured out how to sleep through the night and I figure he won't for a little bit longer. Anyways, I think I am going to use this blog as a way for me to feel like I have a conversation. I seem to lack that during the day. Talking to an infant and a toddler does not count to me.

First Blog

This is my first blog. My attempt with this blog is to keep both sides of my family and friends updated with my little family. So much goes on in my house everyday with 2 little boys and I just want to share that with everyone.
