Hope everyone has had a great day. We had company so it was a little hectic here. Alex was so good. He let them hold him and didn't scream!! Yeah. :lol: He even let DH take him after our bath and let me read in the tub (my fav wat to relax) for 20 min!! :D
Lauren: Yikes!! Sorry about the teeth all at once. The good side is that he gets it over with!
Have a great evening!!

Good Mornining All,
Hey, new look around here, huh!! Didn't we have the three little chicks before? Are we going back to an old look or am I just very confused?? Which is totally possible!!
Alex slept for 7 1/2 hours in his bassinet last night!! Yippee. We had to work at it a little bit to get him down. I held is pacifier in and rubbed his back til he went back to sleep when I first put him down.
Hope everyone is having a super day!!

WE are back!!! I am sad cuz that was the best 2 weeks of my life being with such a happy, chatty baby!!! She is a trip!! I giggled how she would close her eyes and grin in CHicago cuz the wind was soo strong!!! SHE IS A DREAM COME TRUE!!!!
Lauren-WOW on 4 teeth!!! Kaylee just got her first one on July3rd!!!!It is really poking out!!!!
Karen--Hurray for being a stay at home mom,..I would love to be a part time mom..I need my time away from things at times...
Vacation with a mentally challenged child is soo challenging..She was soo horrible that I almost lost it..It is hard cuz it isnt fair to the oldest to not be able to look in stores, etc cuz u have a misbehaving child..I realized that I will have no more kids cuz she is way to much to handle...I think I will cry tomorrow at daycare!!!
RR- Welcome back! Glad you had such a great time, even though it was challenging. Congrats to Kaylee on the tooth!! :D
Karen- Yeah to Alex for sleeping all that time!! :cp: I'm not sure I like the new look...
Been having a pretty rough time with Peter, but last night was slightly better. I brought him to bed with us at midnight when he woke up...for the second time. Then he was only up like 3 more times...better than usual!

OK, I'm gonna stop talking about this I swear, but 9 pm to 6 am with 11 - 6 in the bassinett :cb: YAHOO!!
Lauren: Sorry that Peter is so uncomfortable. I hope he feels better soon.
Hope everyone is having a great day!!:p
Karen, don't worry about it, I remember how exciting it is when they sleep more than a few hours!! (Wish it were happening now!!) :lol:
Actually, Peter did pretty good last night. He stayed in his crib all night. Woke up around 1:30, 4:30, 5:15 (kind of a continuation of 4:30) and 6:50.
We've been going to a Bible study at my landlord's church this week, and Peter's been in the nursery. He had a rough day Monday, but he's been good for them the past two days. It's only from 9-11 though. I said, gee, what are we gonna do next week, because it only runs for a week?!
It's disgustingly hot and humid today. My weather channel thing says it's 77 right now, but it feels really gross.
Toof #4 came through overnight!! It's just a tiny bit through, but that should mean relief for him and us!! :lol: He's been pretty happy today. The nursery at church said he even slept for a 1/2 hr.!
DH bought "me" a car seat for my birthday!! :D OK, so Peter gets to use it, but he knew I'd make him send it back if he bought me anything! :lol:
He got a Britax Galaxy. He knew I really wanted the Britax, because of the safety ratings, and he didn't want me to settle for a lessor one, like I was going to, because we couldn't afford it. He got a great deal on it online, and no shipping.
Now I have to see if I can install it myself! Will probably take it to the firehouse and have one of the certified guys check it, or my BIL, who's a cop and is certified to install them.
DH said he ate soup for lunch for weeks to save up for it. What a guy!! :love:

Not much going on today. Alex is sleeping and I'm just sorta sitting here when I'm sure there's something I should be up doing. I'm lazy today :) . I think I've done well though, my house is reasonably clean - I would let anyone come over with 5 min notice to straighten a couple things. I'm caught up on laundry. I've even gotten the baseboard heater thingee cleaned in the living room. I need to do the one in the entry but the oomph is gone!! :).
Lauren: Cool on the car seat. I'm sure Peter will enjoy your BD present very much. When is your BD? Mine is next week. Your hubby is way cool to sacrifice so your boy can have the best seat.
OK, gotta go. Hope everyone is having a great day!!
Today's my b-day Karen! When is yours?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LAUREN!!!!!! Hope you had a great one.
Mine is next Friday.
Thanks!! It was OK, didn't do much...in fact I didn't do anything different, except that DH brought home an icecream cake. Haven't had any yet. Just put Peter to bed...he's still whining.

Good Afternoon everyone,
We are having an OK day today. We hung out outside for awhile. Until it started to sprinkle. Then we came in and had lunch and now he is lying down. Hope he takes a nice long nap. He didn't want to go to sleep last night. It was 1am before he finally gave it up. He slept a lot in the afternoon/evening. I'm going to keep him up today!!
Lauren: Was the cake good? I know I'm weird but I don't like ice cream cake. At least there is one fattening thing I don't like!!
Here are some of the pictures we took last week:

Ok...have to post my favorite expression!!! She is sooo funny!!! I have a page in my baby book with expressions!!!!
Karen--I say post and post the pics..no matter what size!!!
I enjoy them all!!!
Hey V, Thanks! I was wondering where you've been!! Glad to see you pop in, enjoy your company. Adorable pics!! :D
I'm in trouble, I think. Peter didn't sleep much all day, just a few cat naps in the car, but finally fell asleep on my bed around 4:45...and is still sleeping!! :eek: It's 8:45 now!! I keep going in and checking on him and he is out like a light...totally zonked!!
We went to the firehouse and had one of the guys install the new carseat today. It's soo much nicer. He installed it on the passenger side for me, instead of the middle. He said that's the next recommended place, because it's the sidewalk side. It was soo easy to get him in and out! I'm soo happy with this carseat, it's really easy to loosen the shoulder straps to get him in and out without struggling too much with little arms that don't want to bend and be strapped down!! :lol:
I think it's gonna be a loooong night...
I don't think I posted this pic, it's from July 4th at Dh's cousin's house...

RR: Gotta love that face! Hope you are having fun with your company.
Lauren: How was last night? Hope you got some rest.
OK, here's another pic......
