Way too long!!!

I am so very sorry it's been so long since i've posted any updates. I hardly find any time to get online anymore, and when I do it's just a few minutes here and there. Ok, on to the updates!!!

Things here are going well. It's been SO freakin' cold and snowy!! (although, no where NEAR as much snow as they got back home in MD) We've had a few snow "storms" come through that gave us a little over 2" of snow......that's not much, but when it sticks to our road it's nasty!!! And our road is crazy to begin with!! LOL Ty had two snow days in the past two months, which isn't bad. There is one county here in TN that has been out for snow days for 16 days in a row!!! They finally just went back yesterday at a 2hr delay. I am SO sick of this winter and ready for the warmer weather! I'm sure i'll bitch about the heat once summer does get here, though......LOL!

Z had a scare last month with his dad. He's been having trouble for years with being out of breath and complaining about chest pains and just last year was complaining about feeling like he was going to pass out unless someone would touch his hand.....he's stubborn and hard headed and didn't tell the doctor about any of it. One Sunday a few weeks ago he passed out and his pulse was low so they called 911. Turns out he needed a pacemaker put in.......he had it put in on a Monday and was home by Tuesday late afternoon. He's doing much better as far as being out of breath......

Tyler is doing GREAT in school!!! He's still in the highest reading group and his handwriting is getting so much neater. His teacher sent home an interim report last week and said as long as he takes his time with writing it is super neat. Now to just get him to stay slowed down! LOL He's got yet another cold and complains on and off about his tummy hurting, but for the most part he seems to be getting over it. He does tell me his tummy bothers him in the mornings still, but i'm sure it's just nerves.....I did the same thing, and still have a nervous stomach to this day! He's also told me he has several girlfriends in his's SO sweet!! I told him to be extra nice to the girls as one of them could be his future wife someday and he said "Ewww mom, stop saying that!"

Chase is also doing great!! Can you believe he's 8 months old already?!?!? Photobucket Where has the time gone?!? He's such a little stinker........he does this adorable laugh that cracks me up every time. And he is officially sitting up all by himself!!! He's so proud of himself when he sits up without someone holding him. He still has no teeth yet, but is drooling like crazy and putting things in his mouth to chew on, so i'm thinking they will be coming in soon. Another new thing he has discovered is his tongue......he loves to "chew" on it and stick it out! He's also still working on crawling....when I put him on his blanket on the floor he immediately goes to his hands and knees and rocks.....then he slips back down onto his tummy and plays. We're working on waving, and he will occasionally do a super cute wave. He loves his big brother SO much........anytime Ty comes into the room or Chase hears his voice, he just lights up. And Ty is so amazing with him....he is always asking to play with Chase, or to cuddle with him. I just love watching my boys interact with each other so much......Photobucket

We got our taxes done earlier this month and we did GREAT! After we paid some bills we bought a new sofa and love seat!! Our old sofa had had it and it was time for something new. We were going to check out some sectionals, but we fell in love with a gorgeous sofa & love seat......the material is similar to leather, and each piece has two we ended up with 4 recliners total!!! Plus we still have the old one! Photobucket It is SO super comfy.

Ok, here are some pics!!!

My boys.......
