Seven years.....WOW, how time has flown!! It feels like yesterday we stood before God, our family and friends in a little, country church and said our vows.....what a beautiful, special, perfect day it was!! Seven years and 2 kids later, I can honestly say that our love has grown deeper. Is our marriage perfect....of course not.....but I know, that no matter what, I have someone that "always has my back"! I know that Matt will teach our boys (by example) to be loyal, honest, hard-working, gritty, independent, loving husbands and fathers.
I feel so unworthy of the life the Lord has blessed me with, but I'm soooo THANKFUL!!

After school we went to McDonald's to play for a bit before the boys' 3:00 doctor appointment. Mom met me there to help, because "genius" me scheduled the boys' appointments at the same time....NEVER AGAIN.....at least not until they get a little older. If Mom wouldn't have been there, I would have lost my mind! One of us had a kid the whole time. The boys had check-ups and both had to get shots. When the nurse came in with her gloves on, Sawyer was telling her to go away....he knew what was coming. He had to get one shot in the arm. She barely got all the medicine in before Sawyer yanked the needle out of his arm and scratched his arm with the needle in the process....yeah, not good!! Both the boys checked out great.....here are their stats:
Sutton - 16.2 lbs - 75th percentile
24 1/4" - 35th percentile
Sawyer - 38lbs - 95th percentile
39" - 85th percentile

I had a wedding to go to on Saturday right outside of Birmingham. We were going to take Sawyer and make it a family weekend, but he got sick (see previous post) so we decided to keep him here and I went on to the wedding with Mom and Dad. We decided to make a stop at the Cheesecake Factory at The Summit and do a little shopping. The Summit has a Pottery Barn Kids, so I bought Sawyer a shelf to go in his room, bought the boys matching shorts from Gymboree and a couple things from Baby Gap. That's about all the time we had before heading to the wedding.
Back at home, Matt and Sawyer had a good day. Since Sawyer still wasn't feeling 100%, they stayed in all day. Mimi and Pops kept Sutton most of the day. When I got back home, I noticed that Matt and Sawyer had cleaned the house, which I thought was very sweet. Sawyer had picked up his playroom all by himself, which I was very pleased to hear! All-in-all, it was a great day. As I said before, it was suppose to be a family weekend, but I have to say, it was nice to get away for the day, and Matt and the boys had a great day too.

Me: Hey, did you just try calling me?
Matt: umm....when do you think you'll be home?
Me: not too much longer, why?
Matt: well, the baby won't let me put him down and sawyer almost choked on a piece of candy so he's now upset.
Me: you didn't let him have a lifesaver did you?!?!
Matt: uh, yeah, I thought you let him have them.
Matt: well, then we need to throw them away....why do we have them anyways?!?
Me: Because they are MY candy....i'll be right there!!
How is it that I'm home with the kids day-in and day-out and I manage to keep the chaos to a MODERATE level, but he is left alone with them for an hour and I get the "phone call"....LOL!!
