Snake Adventures

Today Drew was outside in the front yard and saw this rat snake in our flower bed. He later caught it. He put him in this container and we ooed and awed at him. We decided to take pictures of Drew holding the snake, but the closest thing we got was the pic in the …

See toddler climb out of bed…

See Momma say bye-bye to quiet nap times, See Momma say bye-bye to full night sleep, See Momma lose her sanity! Yes, yes, yes, Alex crawled out of the crib a few weeks ago during nap time. My first thought was “Oh! No! This isn’t supposed to happen to me!” Drew never climbed out of …

Letter to MB

Dear Alex, I’m not one for writing sappy letters anymore, but I was just amazed over the week we spent together during Spring Break. You amaze me. You discover and learn each every day. I love it when you say T-to (thank you) after I say thank you. I’m trying to teach you to say …

We have so many leftovers, it’s not even funny. I’m on some new meds, which I think it’s interfering with my appetite. Anyway, …
