It has been awhile since I have blogged. I have needed to catch up. These pictures of Titus are actually from July. Aren't they cute! He is just so precious I could eat him up. He is such a sweetie pie. I call him my "punkin." We haven't had the easiest of times with him as I am sure he is teething. He is back to waking up in the middle of the night and won't go back to sleep unless he is nursed. It is also hard to get him to sleep at night. Thank goodness for baby Tylenol. I have to practically give him it each night otherwise he won't sleep and is so uncomfortable. Poor little thing! And, as the title of the post says, he is on the move. On Aug. 15th, he rolled from stomach to back for the first time. He was so proud to show us his new trick as we would clap and praise him emphatically. He is also scooting backwards, not fast by any means, but he will arch his back push his hands and go backwards. Justice was at least 9 mos. before he was doing this. You could put Justice in one place and come back and he wouldn't have moved. Titus though is really trying to go places. We had Justice and Titus' portraits taken at the end of July. They were adorable. We took them in overalls with white shirts. So precious! We had our first car trip with Titus too since my last post. Titus is not a good car rider, horrible really. He cried 90% of the way to Birmingham. What a mess! We had a good trip though visiting my brother. While there we had an appmnt. with a doctor to get ready for Titus' sugery he needs to correct a urinary issue. He has to have surgery in January. It will not be fun at all! It makes me nervous and I am dreading it. Well, I hope to post later, right now I am really tired. I am posting after putting Titus to bed and I am ready for some rest after a busy day with my two sweet boys.

Justice is 2 years old! I can hardly believe it! I have a two year old! We had such a blast throwing Justice his first official birthday party. Last year it was just family and very low key. This year we invited his play friends and their families and had a great, great time. The kiddos played and were very well behaved I must say. We had BBQ, watermelon, cake and ice cream. Everything just went so well. I couldn't have been more pleased. As I prepared for this party I thought about the many years ahead of birthdays and how I want each year for my kids to feel special and loved on their important day. I treasure them so much and want them to know they are a blessing to us. We don't go overboard by any means. I am not going to spend hundreds of dollars as some parents do. I think you can let your kids know what they mean to you in much simpler ways, but the depth is still there. One funny story from the party was when we started singing "Happy Birthday" to Justice, he just beamed with pride that everyone was singing to him and he held his fists in the air and shouted with glee "Bur-DAY!" and kept shouting it over and over as we all laughed. He was so cute. He was also all over the place. You could hardly get a good picture of him, but he enjoyed himself thoroughly. He didn't even stop to get cake and ice cream. We are truly blessed to have him here!
His favorite gift that day had to have been the baloons as you could see below. We also got him a play lawn mower, a play tent (he loved!), T'Ball set, punching blow up toy, and a coloring book with wonder markers. From Maw-maw he got a play cement truck, from neighbors Ayden, Josh, and Anna he got a bat and ball, a truck from Little Richard, Wendy and Richard, and from Jean and Lee Douglass he got Leap Frog Letter Magnet Set. Everyone was so nice to think of him!
