Ty's first school pic

I just love his smile in the picture.

We originally ordered the green background but they used this background color instead. They said we could send them back and have them retake the pics with the green background, but the more I looked at these pictures the more I feel in love with them. And he actually had a genuine smile on his face, which is SO rare for him! LOL

I look at this picture and think to myself "How in the world did I become the mom of a kndergartner already?!?!?"

Happy birthday, Zane!!!

Today is Z's birthday!! I've already baked his cake, now all I have to do is wait for it to cool so I can put the icing on and add the coconut. (he requested a white cake with fluffy white icing and coconut on top....yum!!) He also asked for steak and fried shrimp for dinner, which also sounds good to me!! ;) We didn't do the present thing this year, and I think it would be really hard to top last years present.....Chase was conceived this date last year! Photobucket I was thinking about running to Dollartree later to get a balloon to tie onto our mailbox.....now THAT would surprise him! Photobucket

Happy Fall!!!!

Wow, summer is gone. This year is just flying by!! We had a pretty amazing summer here. We welcomed our second son in June! He is such an amazing little guy, and totally completes our family. I really love being the mom of two boys!! Another big thing this summer was Tyler starting school. I can't believe he is in kindergarten. He is growing up SO fast!! Yesterday we got his school pictures back, and they turned out AMAZING!! Well, they messed up the background color......it was supposed to be green so we had him wear a light colored shirt. But the more I look at these pics the more I love them.....he actually has a genuine smile on his face! We're going to be mailing them out the end of this week, so once they go out and people start getting them i'll post it here.

I need to get off of here and work on dinner a little more......I took a chicken pot pie out of the freezer that we had made earlier this year (we make at least two pies at a time, minus the crust, and always freeze one) and I just put the crust on it I made and want to check on it. Take care everyone!!!

This morning when I dropped Ty off for school he didn't cry!!! He opened up the van door and I told him to have a great day and he said "You have a great day too, mommy!" He got out, closed the door and was waving to me with a smile on his face! Ahhh, it was so nice to drive away with him not crying. I felt so good inside and yet at the same time got a little choked up to see him so grown up and brave.

Another YAHOO!! moment.....Chase has slept through the night for 3 nights in a row!!! On Friday I broke down and bought him some baby applesauce and he did GREAT with it!! He only had a very little bit on Friday, but Saturday morning and right before bed that night he had some applesauce before his bottle and he got his little belly full and slept all night!! Sunday and Monday nights we did the same thing and it worked!! Ahhh, I feel like a whole new mommy today.........Photobucket
