Sunday Afternoons....

Happy Tuesday! 

We had a rocky start to the week.  We thought that Pax was getting yet another ear infection.  Thank the Lord, it was just gas!  The daycare called me yesterday around lunch and said that he just started screaming and nothing they did would calm him down.  I picked him up and took him home to check him out.  Bless his heart, I gave him some gas drops and he had the worst gas EVER!  Needless to say, he was a happy camper the rest of the day.  I feel the need to to apologize to his teacher, Mrs Amber, she had to endure his flatulence all afternoon.  :) 

We had an awesome weekend.  The kiddos stayed with Michael's parents Friday night so Michael and I could meet up with some friends for dinner and a movie.  My birthday is this coming Friday and my friend gave me a gift card to Charming Charlie!  I love that place!  Saturday, Michael had to work (yuck).  I rode with him for a couple of hours and then got my babies back.  Sunday....  we played outside all afternoon!  It was a beautiful day!  The kids stayed in the water the majority of the time. 
I will leave you with this....  I picked up the kids at daycare yesterday afternoon to find Anna Claire wearing an outfit that was not what she arrived in.  I asked her teacher if she went potty in her panties..... I was informed that Anna Claire decided she needed to use the restroom standing up like a boy.  She is not my child.  :)  Gotta love a two year old!
Have a great rest of the week!

Happy 10 months Paxton!

Happy 10 Months to my Paxton! 

I can't believe he will be a year in two months!  Both of my babies are growing way to fast.

Unfortunatley, we had to spend him turning 10 months in the doctor's office.  Poor little guy has two ear infections.  I was so thankful that they just gave him a shot this time instead of putting him on a ten day antibiotic.  He is feeling much better today! 

He is such a stinker.  He is crawling and getting into everything now.  Anna Claire wasn't much of a explorer.  We have to constantly chase after him.  Michael's poor speakers have been knocked off the coffee table too many times to count.  I have a tray with rocks and candles under my coffee table that has been there since before Anna Claire was a born.  She never messed with it.  Needless to say, that tray has a new home on my dining room table.... way out of Paxton's reach. 
The above picture is a small example of a typical Paxton mess. 
His first chocolate chip cookie! 
He apparently thought it was very interesting. 
We got brave enough to give him a white chocolate covered Oreo for dessert last night.  Michael and I argued about who was going to give him a bath.  I won :)  but I did have to peel his shirt off of him. 
Him and his sister play so well together, but he is starting to get on her nerves a little bit.  He pulls her hair and eats her colors.  He was in her room a few nights ago watching a movie and she told Michael that he was getting on her nerves.  Bless her heart.  This is just the beginning I am afraid. 
Speaking of Anna Claire...  my baby girl is 100% potty trained!  For three weeks now!  Yay!  We get so excited about this.  A big accomplishment as a parent in my book! 
Lastly, we had an awesome weekend!  For the kids and I at least.  Michael had to work all weekend.  :(  I loaded the kids up and took them to Brookhaven Friday night.  My cousin Amy, my sister Molly, Anna Claire and I went to a friend's house to get some feathers.

My Feathers
Anna Claire's feathers.
Anna Claire loves it!  She calls it her tiger and doesn't like me to wash her hair.  She tells people that it will bite them if they touch it.  Haha! 

AC and Pax spent the night at my parents.  Amy and I stayed at Molly's house.  It was a lot of fun!  I don't remember the last time that I stayed a night away from the kids and Michael.  Saturday night, Michael and I met some cousins and friends to eat supper and had a great time!  There is nothing like Mexican food and icecream for dessert. :)  Sunday, we went to church and just relaxed the rest of the day.  Can't wait for another Friday! 
I hope everyone has a great week!

AHHH Vacation!

Thank you Lord for sun, sand, and sweaty babies.  :)  We just got home from Gulf Shores, AL.  Can I just say that it was a much needed break.  It wasn't necessarily a relaxing break, but still a break.  The kids kept us busy.  My parents went with us and I felt like they need a vacation from the vacation.  Anna Claire was WILD.  She enjoyed the beach more this year than she did last year.  We actually didn't spend a ton of time at the water this year.  We took her on a dolphin cruise and the zoo. It was some quality Anna Claire time that we loved.  She is getting so big that I feel like we miss so much with her. 

I really love my baby girl.  She has her mama (and daddy) wrapped around her finger AND she knows it.
This picture says everything about his time at the beach.  He loved it!  If you look closely at his mouth, you will see sand.  The majority of my time was spent telling him to stop eating sand.  The result of me not letting him eat sand is:
He is a cutie, isn't he? 
We had a great time!  I can't wait to go back soon!  After we recover from this time! haha! 
I hope everyone has a great week and Happy Monday!
Okay, two more pictures and I promise I'll stop!
  OKAY... That is all.
