Hit me again!


When you get sleep, you can say that. It has been so nice to get a little sleep lately. I still wake up to pump so I can keep up the milk supply...but Mattox has been sleeping at least 6-8 hours every night this week!! One night he slept 6 - woke up to eat - and slept another 6. Yeah. That's what I'm talking 'bout! I can handle that. Hit me again! But seriously, he is a sweetheart. He loves to snuggle and I could just eat him up!

Today I was on my way to Jackson when a truck rear-ended me. Thank goodness we are all ok. Mati Claire immediately started crying and poor Mattox slept through it...until it got hot, then he started screaming. Its amazing what people will say and do. The driver was drunk without a license. Then they swapped places and lied to the police about who was driving. The cops arrested both of them! Craziness. It reminded me that cars and possessions are just things - they break and they can be fixed. But you can't fix people. I can't replace my kids. Thank the dear sweet Lord for our safety. The lady passenger tried hard to push my buttons to escalate the situation- and she did in a way- and to that I say hit me again. You're going to jail...and I'm going home. You can keep hitting me with your words... but it doesn't change the truth. So I refused to let her get to me.

that's her in handcuffs! this is what hit me!

Back in 2

Sorry I haven't blogged lately. I won't test my computer's limits by posting any pictures. Its running at the moment. I think Matt and I both are procrastinating buying a new computer when we use our phones most of the time. Anywho...

Mattox is growing up so fast! I can't believe he is 3 months old already. And Mati Claire will be 3 in about 3 weeks. She is getting excited about her Princess Party. Every morning she asks me if today is the day she gets her Birthday Cake. And she reminds us all that DADDY is the one who wants a Princess-themed party... not just her. Hehe. MC still has some potty training issues. We still haven't mastered the bathroom yet and we have an August deadline! Please pray for her ------ and me I guess. I am so sick of cleaning up messes.

Lil man is doing better each day. He has slept 7 hours at night 2 days this week and it's only Wednesday! Yay! He doesn't take naps well. He likes to cat-nap throughout the day because he's afraid he will miss something...um, do I have a socializer on my hands? More so than MC - impossible! He likes to be held and/or sit up at all times! He is starting to despise his bouncy chairs, but I'm sorry Mattox - Mommy can NOT hold you 24 hours a day. As much as I would like to. He laughs alot now and it is SOOOO cute! He'll get choked from laughing...hysterical! He still has dark blue eyes surprisingly...and messed up hair NOT so surprisingly. He's a cutie patootie!

It seems everyone I know has either been or is presently at the beach. I wish I was with you! Oil or not. I will have to sell my soul to get Matt to take us one day. Add that to your prayer list! ;) Swimming lessons went well I think. It wore us all out so we took a break this week but looking forward to more. Mrs. Blair is so sweet!!! Will post pics later!
