Update on the Fam :)

I've been waiting to update until I was able to get my camera battery charged again, but I'm still losing the battle of finding the charger.  So I thought I'd just give a quick update on what's been hapening lately.

A while back we decided that we were getting way too many "your little girl is so cute" comments considering we have two boys....so we cut Carter's hair.  It looks pretty good and he did GREAT!  I thought he'd be scared of the clippers, but he let me do everything but get real close to trim around his ears.  It's growing so fast, he's probably due for another cut in about a week or so.  And, yes...I did save his hair.  I wasn't planning on it, but once I made the first swipe with the clippers and saw how much I was actually cutting, I freaked a bit :)

We also have successfully (so far) moved Carter into his "big boy" twin bed.  Sometime Saturday night it appears he crawled out of bed and tried to curl up on the floor.  We assume he crawled out b/c we didn't hear him fall (he does have a rail up that covers 1/2 the bed) but James heard him whimper a bit and when he went to check on him there he was on the floor trying to cover up with his little security blanket (about 1 ft x 1 ft).  Other than that he's done wonderfully!

Henry is starting to babble more and more and sleeps through the night now (meaning he sleeps about 8-12 hours at a time), needing only one late night feed and then only if he goes to bed before 10:00 pm.  Thank you Lord for such wonderful sleepers!  Henry does seem to be teething now, but it's not nearly as bad as I remember with Carter...another blessing!

I'll try to post some pictures from my phone later...and hopefully sometime soon I'll find the battery charger for our regular camera :)


  1. Yay sleeping! I'm a bit nervous about teething...

  2. Jess, sorry it took so long for me to respond :)

    Teething was awful with Carter...he's what you call a "chronic teether", meaning he seemed to never have relief. Henry only seems to have problems sporadically (I'm assuming it's when his teeth are really moving). I'm getting ready to buy an amber necklace for him to see if it helps. It was recommended by two of my friends. We'll see :)
