Okay things have finally slowed down a bit..so today it milestone day!!! Yay! One third of the way down and just about 200 days until we string up the Christmas lights! That gives me the chirstmas spirit and warm feeling just typing it out! we will get there before you know it and will wonder where did the year 2013 go~!

Well I hope everyone has a great and exciting weekend ahead and get a chance todo whatever you want to. I am cutting the grass as soon as I get home because the ppl that are buying our house are coming over in the morning so I want it to lookas good as possible. Now tomorrow me and Brandi have been invited to a buddy of mine's wedding. It's going to be held at a Tallahassee country club. Tal. is about an hour and a half drive from us and it's all back country roads to get there in the fall it would be beautiful and I guess in the spring it will be very pretty too. Then on Sunday I have a Baseball game after Church services we are playing a team that works at roadway it's a freight company and they are suppose to be pretty good..now are they as good as the US Air Force? I don't think so...although I will admit my fallure if we lose! Have a great morning buddies!

Happy Friday everyone!
Just got back from my walk, it is beautiful out already. I stepped outside and had to turn back around to put a lighter coat on today. I am going to work on a menu for next week and a grocery list. I have a few errands to run today including a trip to the butcher. My oldest doesn't have to work today so she is going to tag along with me. We still have to have the glass on her phone fixed so that may be our first stop.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Thanks guys I will certainly ask them this afternoon because I will be picking them up today after work! And merry thanks if I may ask how long did it take before things got better? James is almost 6 months old now,and the thing is he was not like this until after Christmas break then it seems like it stared in January. Thanks for the advice and empathy!!!
I just wanted to say that my babies were over 6 months old before they started to sleep for longer periods of time. I really do know how you feel. It is exhausting and stressful. My oldest was colic and she would only take catnaps. I was weepy for months becuase I was so tired. It is a stage that can feel like its never ending. But they do grow up so quickly, it will eventually be over. I know developmental milestones can disrupt sleep. I remember when my daughter was learning how to crawl. She would wake up crying and I would find her on her knees half asleep. She was probably so confused. We always used those white noise machines in the babies rooms at night, they are soothing and calming. They grow and change and its hard to figure out, especially when you are sleep deprived. Hope things improve soon!

Good Friday morning everyone. Woke up to frost on the ground for the second straight morning. I know it is just "blackberry winter" and will soon warm up but it is great while it lasts. I wish July weather was like this with a low of 30 and a high in the low 60s.

As I shared before, tomorrow will be a tough day for me and we go 'college shopping' with our son.

Have a blessed day and a great weekend everyone.
