A letter to Cole's teeth

Dear Teeth,

Please, I beg of you, break through the skin today. I don't think I can take the screaming anymore. I need sleep. A few hours a night just doesn't cut it. Have you seen me lately? I look like I have been punched in the face. I look like I have two black eyes. I can't take this anymore. I promise I will take care of you. I promise to brush and floss them a million times a day if you will PLEASE just come in!!! I have laundry piled to the ceiling, floor that need to be scrubbed, and I just need a few minutes to myself. I don't feel like I am being needy, a girl needs her sanity and mine is close to being gone. I don't like to see my baby in pain it breaks my heart. So, PLEASE TEETH, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH I NEED YOU TO COME IN TODAY.

With Love,

We are all moved into our new home and we absolutely love it here. Nothing too exciting has been going on just getting things settled and ready to go back to work on Monday. Cole is growing like a weed. He is the cutest little thing ever. He's rolling over, everywhere. He's trying desperately to sit up on his own. He smiles and laughs at everything his big brother does. He's eating big boy food at dinner and loves every minute of it. I just can't get enough of that little boy. His smiles just melt my heart. He is wearing 6 month clothes and some 6/9 month stuff. He's a lot huskier than Hayden ever was. In just the last week he has figured out how to use his hands more. He can pick things up and get them straight to his mouth. We have a feeling he may become a thumb sucker. Not sure yet but we see him with it in his mouth more and more. Here are some new pictures of our little butter ball!

Lots Going on

Our life is a little crazy right now. I feel like we have a million things going on at once. Our lease is up here in Chapel Hill at the end of October. However, we found a house that we love in Fuquay and it is available now. So, we are packing up and moving a month earlier than expected. Everyone is so excited about the move. We will be living in a nice neighborhood on a culdasac where Hayden will have lots of kids to play with. We are excited to be living within minutes from all of my family. It will be nice to have everyone so close by. And the house is bigger with a bonus room. I start a new job on October 19. One that I am excited about yet nervous about at the same time. I decided not to go back to the daycare center I was working at before Cole was born for many reasons. It turns out the center is closing at the end of October. I was offered a nanny position for two little boys that I taught at Parkway Children's Center. I will be making more money, the hours are better I get to be with my children all day. The downside is that it's going to be a little crazy taking care of 4 little boys.

We feel like this move will be really good for our family. Moving to Chapel Hill two years ago turned out to be not what we wanted. However, we have had some good times here. We just prefer to be closer to our family. Our plan is to move next weekend. Sometime this week I will email everyone with our new telephone number and address. Our GMail email addresses are the ones we will be using. Once we get moved I will post pictures and tell you all about our perfect little boys.

By the way, Cole had his 4 month appt. a little bit ago and he weighs 14.5lbs! He is growing like a weed and is just as cute as can be.

Cole's new trick

Masters Champion 2032

This week has been such a long week for me. I'm not sure why but it has really tried my patience. With the stress of finding a new job, our upcoming move, a sick family member, and just life in general, it's kind of taking a toll on me. Hayden is now at that 3 1/2 year mark and his behaviour and listening skills have been so difficult. Some days it takes all I have just to get through the day. On Wednesday Greg rushed home from work to give Hayden and I a little break from each other and took him golfing. They went and played 9 holes at the golf course in our neighborhood. This was Hayden's first time actually playing on a course and he has proven to be pretty good for a 3 year old beginner. We are both pretty proud of our little golfer. I hope it continues and he loves it as much as Greg does. I'm not too excited about the damage it could do on my bank account if it becomes an all the time thing. Golf is expensive!

I do hope this is a hobby they can always enjoy together!

Lazy Lake Days

We live about 5 minutes from Jordan Lake. During the summer we normally go every weekend. However, this year it's been a little different. We have only been a few times. Both, Cole and Hayden love it. I wish we could go more often but it gets a little too hot out for Cole.
