Well, I have a million things to get done today... and here I am, sitting at the computer. I decided to leave the house with both boys in tow hoping to accomplish my "million" things list. I received a package from UPS that wasn't addressed to me. I thought I could take it back to the UPS store and they would return it to the sender. In case you are wondering, you can't do that. You have to CALL UPS and have the truck come back and pick it up. What a hassle! I learned this valuable lesson after dragging both my boys through the parking lot, standing in line, and then talking with the UPS store clerk.
I then decided to head to the bank to get my short sale paperwork notarized. Bad idea for a Saturday; however, this was the only day available for me to get it done. Turns out there was only one notary available and she was busy with a customer for 45 minutes. I sat in the front of the Smith's grocery store with my two crying children for 20 minutes before she finally came out and asked why these kids were crying. UM, they are sad because they don't have patience and I neither do I, for that matter.
Well, back to my "million" list and I hope I get it all done before tomorrow because I am looking to have an awesome week next week. Here is to the last few days of my 20's! SO excited to be 30!
Oh, and if you EVER short sale your home... just know it is going to be really stressful no matter what the circumstances may be.

Essential Oils Class

7 Months!

Has it been 7 months, already? Where has the time gone? I really can not believe Nolen is 7 months old today! He is so big and so happy. He is 20 pounds and roughly 26 inches tall. He is such a joy. We have been sleep training for the last month and it has resulted in... well, nothing. Nolen had one break through night where he slept 6 hours but has since reverted back to waking every 2 hours. We found out he suffers from pretty bad acid reflux and still has terrible gas. I suppose those two reasons are keeping him awake at night. Much to my avail, Nolen is officially teething. Poor little guy.
As far as milestones are concerned, he can get up on his hands and knees and attempts to take a few crawling steps. He can sit unassisted; however, he does not know how to get into a sitting position. He rolls all over the house. His very favorite spot remains the jumper. We just love this little guy. Every day he reminds me how awesome it is to be a Mom. I love him, I love him, I love him!

Nolen's first time swimming

We have been swimming at our gym pool since January; however, Nolen has not been along to swim. We took him to the out door kiddie pool the day it opened. He had a blast!! Edward loved swimming with Nolen and, of course, Nolen loved swimming! I just love these two cute little boys!

My favorite quote...

"Only the weak blame parents, their race, their times, lack of good fortune, or the quirks of fate. Everyone has is within his power to say, this I am today, that I shall be tomorrow. The wish, however, must be implemented by deeds." Louis L'Amour; The Walking Drum
