Merry Christmas

We had a WONDERFUL Christmas!!! We had our own celebration at home on the 23rd ... Graham left out cookies and milk for Santa before his nap. He seemed more excited about the half of a cookie that Santa left than his presents :) We drove to Memphis on the 24th and spent Christmas Eve with Kevin's family ... Graham had a blast with his 3 older McCalla boy cousins!! We had lunch on Christmas day with my parents and Wilson's family ... we missed Jackson's family, but we'll all be together in Sea Island next week. All of my boys were great and enjoyed being spoiled by their grandparents!!

Graham, the Shepherd

Graham was a shepherd in his school Christmas program at church on Sunday morning. He didn't actually sing the song, but he looked awfully cute up there :) My big boy continues to bring me so much joy and does or says something everyday that cracks me up ... today it was a toss up. It was either when he said "poor Graham" multiple times after I had to pick him up early from school because he has pink eye OR when I had taken Luke to change his diaper and I return to get Carter and find Graham sitting in Luke's Bumbo seat facing Carter and having a full-on conversation with him ... so sweet. Can't wait to see what tomorrow brings!!

Diapers, part 3

No, my friends, your eyes are not deceiving you, I only have 2 boys in the picture because now I only have 2 boys in diapers!!!!!!! I have been reluctant to blog about this because now that I've put it out here he's going to revert, but my big boy, Graham, is potty-trained :) About a month ago he saw some friends getting treats for using the potty at school and came home wanting some. We had our fair share of accidents (I'm not going to sugar-coat it, cleaning poo out of underwear is rough stuff), but I feel that we are in the clear now. Yipee ... 3-4 less diapers to change a day for this mommy!!!!

3 Months Old

My sweet baby boys are already 3 months old. I made a big decision to stop swaddling them and putting them in separate beds for their naps. Carter has adjusted easily, but poor little Luke seems to be missing his brother and his blanket. Hopefully he'll get used to it soon ... he has been sucking his thumb now that he's not swaddled :) Carter is pretty consistently sleeping through the night (10:30-6:30 or 7) and Luke usually wakes once or twice for his paci. They are both smiling and cooing lots and pretty content little guys. I guess our next big thing will be starting cereal next month ... we'll see how that goes feeding 2 of them!!
