Prison Break

I had not left the city of Nashville since July, so Sat. the 21st I finally broke free and went to Memphis for 8 days. It was great getting to be with family and friends and getting to show off my precious baby boys!! My mom hosted a Sip and See at her house for people to come over and see the babes ... they were great and it was fun. We took Graham to a Memphis Tiger basketball game ... he was mesmerized and sat so still - I was shocked. We pretty much just spent almost all of our time with all 4 grandparents ... I LOVED having the extra hands!! Gigi cooked a HUGE Thanksgiving feast and we enjoyed celebrating with her family. Kevin and I got to get out most nights which was nice but actually exhausted me a bit since I'm so used to just chilling at home. It truly was a great week and I really loved (and needed) the change of scenery.

Vandy Game

Kevin and I took ALL 3 boys to the Vandy vs. Kentucky game yesterday. We stayed for the first half and had tons of fun except for the loss. Graham was eating something about 95% of the time we were there ... it was the only way to keep him still :) I was telling Kevin the other day how much joy Graham has been bringing me lately. I am absolutely loving his stage right now and our conversations ... he says something everyday that cracks me up. Earlier this week, I gave him a snack (veggie cruchers) that he doesn't really like very much. He pulled one out of his snack trap and looked at it and said "Doggies eat these." I mean, where does he come up with this stuff!?!?!? The babies are doing great ... smiling tons and simply being sweet baby boys. I am a very blessed Mommy!!!!!

Arnold and Danny

Since birth, my brother, Jackson, has ever so sweetly refered to Carter as Danny ... as in DeVito from the movie Twins. I guess the reference is going to continue since sweet little (and I mean little) Carter is still not quite catching up to Luke. I took them in for their 2 month check-up this morning and Luke weighed 11 lbs. 9.5 oz (45%) and Carter weighed 9 lbs. 12 oz (5%). The doctor is happy with his weight ... after all, he has gained 4 pounds since birth. I am not concerned one bit about Carter, it is just weird to me to have such a small baby since Graham was anything but small. I checked back and Graham weighed 12 lbs. 12 oz. at 2 months, but he started out at 8 lbs. 2 oz. Who knows, maybe one day Carter is going to be bigger than Luke AND Graham!!

2 Months Old

Our boys are already two months old ... time is flying!! We go to the doctor for their check-up next week, so I don't have any stats right now. Carter slept from 10:30 to 5:30 last night and Luke awoke at 3:45 but went back to sleep, so I'm hopeful that we're getting close to sleeping through the night. God sure has blessed us with 2 precious baby boys!!!!!

Trick or Treat

We had an absolute ball on Halloween!!!! The weather cleared up for us and we were able to go trick-or-treating. I wasn't sure what to expect with Graham, but it was pure joy watching that little boy run from house to house, pick a treat, put it in his pumpkin bucket, and run on to the next one. Watching his excitement gave me a small glimpse of how God must view us when we enjoy his blessings. Our highlight of the night was seeing Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman out trick-or-treating with their daughter :) Graham ran right in between them and I had to dodge them!! The babies were perfect again by sleeping the whole time. Who know what next year holds in store with all 3 of them running everwhere!!
