Demolition Man




Is this not a great portrait picture, who needs a professional studio. What a precious, precious boy I have. I don't mean to be bragging, but I cannot help it! He is precious to me more than life! We have such fun together. His latest fun thing to do is for Ron or I to build up some blocks and for him to demolish them. His new nickname is "Demolition Man." He may be destined for engineering. I have written previously about his love for books. His favorite book is Goodnight Moon. All I have to do to get him to come to me is to start reciting the words and he comes a crawlin' This is helpful when he is about to get into something I don't want him to.

He is now nursing two times a day and drinking Organic Whole Milk the rest of the day. It is actually a relief more than sadness I feel as I wean him down. I do plan on nursing him in the morning and night for awhile longer. I enjoy these times. He is really growing up.

As far as Ron and I go for our 4th anniversary, we are going to let my mom keep him and us go spend a day at the lake together. We are going to buy some steaks, grill out, swim, and just relax! I think it will be great! Also, we recently received a financial answer to prayer. God is taking care of us.

congrats on getting him down to 2x a day. i've been wondering how that's going to go with us. we're having to give little bit a bottles at noon and 4pm b/c my milk supply has REALLY gone down! she was still SO cranky after i'd nurse her so i finally gave her 4oz and it made her happy. marietta and i can't figure out what happened but oh well. we made it for 8 1/2 months w/o having to supplement so i call that success! i'm still nursing her at 12 and 4 too but just giving her a bottle afterwards.
hope to see you/talk to you soon!

Have a great anniversary celebration! Don't worry about Justice for a minute - he'll be just fine with Grandma!

I stayed at home with our two for years and don't regret it for one minute. I had to play catch-up with technology when it was time to go back to the "working world," but it was worth every financial "sacrifice." We were fortunate that DC had great insurance for all of us for practically nothing in those days. It seems that insurance coverage is one thing that drives women to have to go back to work when they'd rather be at home.

We too struggle from time to time financially with me staying at home. A lot of sacrifices have to be made, believe me I empathize. I also believe that if you really feel God wants you to stay home, things will work out. It sounds like it is. Have fun on your anniversary! It will be nice for you to have a whole day with just your hubby.

I envy the lure of "Goodnight Moon" - I wish I had something like that that would deter my boys from their demolition!

Justice IS precious - you can brag if you want to!

Your anniversary sounds like a lovely day - enjoy!

(P.S. - Did you get my comment on your T13? I didn't have another way to contact you...)

That's great news about your answer to prayer!

Justice is definitely a cutie! I love his nickname.

My little one really loves "Goodnight Moon", too. It's a classic. I loved it when i was a kid as well.
