Hello? Is this thing on?

Hi! I'm Amy! Not sure if you remember me since my posting has been pretty scarce lately because man has life been crazy!

It seems like when it rains it pours. Brady had that snotty cold last month and then he came down with his first fever this weekend which of course was the ONLY weekend that was entirely jam packed. Of course he decides to get sick this weekend!

We had a family wedding on Sunday that was literally put together in a few weeks (thanks to my free spirited cousin) and my aunt had asked me to pictures for them. I agreed to help out not knowing what I was getting myself into! I have no clue how you wedding photographers do it. I was exhausted. This was definitely a one time thing for me!

 I also have no clue how anyone who has children and works full-time manages to have a life. My house is a disaster, I'm wearing the last clean pair of decent clothes and I had to run to the store last night so that my child will have something other than peanut butter crackers and Annie's graham bunnies to eat.

Speaking of my child, man does he know how to throw a good tantrum. I think he's trying to perfect his skill at throwing himself down.

I do have to share this again! My niece watched him last Saturday while I hosted my first Thirty-One party (which was so much fun) and Blake had a bowling thing to do (have I mentioned I'm a bowling widow?) and she hasn't watched him since he was about 10 months old. She could not believe this kid. He did his little sign for milk and she handed it to him, ran into his room and stood by his bed with his arms up. She covered him up and he went right to sleep! He does this for me too and gosh dang it, we paid our dues and we earned this!!!!!! I'm so proud of him.

I was thinking about his sleeping and how much it really shows how much his reflux affected him. His sleep patterns have improved one million and ten percent. Even though they still get off when he is not feeling his best, which is normal and understandable, it really goes to show that he wasn't feeling good for all that time and that breaks my heart. I'm glad that chapter is over because I know other babies are still struggling.

 I have some big decisions to make and I cannot for the life of me what to decide what to do. It's one of those should do vs need to do vs what is best for everyone else kinda things. I'll elaborate more later but I don't have the energy right now!

It was almost 80 here the other day and today I woke up to sleet and snow with accumulation in the forecast for tomorrow!

My baby boy will be 17 months old tomorrow. That means next month he is going to be A YEAR AND A HALF????



I gotta run and grab a kleenex.

insanity!! I can't believe he's getting so big. Also, the sleep thing is AMAZING and I am insanely jealous.

We just mastered bed time AGAIN this month!!! I swear this is the 1531856 time I have sleept trained.
BUT this weekend I was thinking about Tucker going to be with milk in a sippy cup. He takes the milk and blankey to bed every night. Do you think its a problem??

Nah...heck as long as they are sleeping right.
