Life has been.....

CRAZY!!!! We have been so busy over the last month! August 29th I started student teaching and I'm LOVING IT!!! I love everything about it! I love the school I'm at, I love my teacher, I LOVE our students and I'm loving the work! It's nice to finally see what our normal routine is going to be like. It's been an adjustment but I think we've all finally gotten into a groove. The biggest adjustment was for Wade. He was use to sleeping to 8 am, now he's getting up at 6:45 or 7:00 every morning. After several rough mornings due to being so tired we decided to move Wade's bedtime from 8:30 or 8:45 to 8:00. That extra 30 or 45 minutes has made a world of difference. By the time the school day is over and I get a good workout in, I'm pretty much wiped and SO ready to be at home with my boys!! We are enjoying our weekends so much! Brody actually has had the last several Saturdays off (that's a big deal around here!) We've all enjoyed sleeping in and then waking up and cooking breakfast or taking Wade to Mcdonald's for breakfast! Then we usually play at the park for a while and head back home for a nap! It's be glorious!

On a different note, last Friday was the first day of Autumn!!! This makes me SOOOO happy! This is my favorite time of the year! I've had all my Fall decorations out since the first week in September!! Pumpkin roll candles have been burning for weeks and I'm still hunting for the perfect pumpkin scone recipe!!!!

Wade has been very busy over the last several weeks! We have FINALLY gotten rid of the pacifier for good, a big leap and a huge relief! He is talking a lot more now (probably now that the pacifier is gone)! He is repeating a lot of things we say and saying a lot of new things on his own! I feel like he has gotten so tall and looks so big over the last few weeks! We had to buy him new tennis shoes for the fall and his foot had grown a size and a half since our last pair! I couldn't believe it!! Needless to say he LOVES his new pair becau
se they actually fit! He has been a big help these days too! I'll ask him to bring me something or throw things away and he is always happy to help! Momma is happy to have the help too!!

Well, this was probably a boring post but this is what we've
been up too! Hope your Autumn is treating you well thus far!

Wade is TWO!

Mr. Wade, I can't believe it's been two years since God blessed us with you! I thank Him and praise Him daily for you! You are such a joy and blessing to your Daddy and I! Oh how you make us laugh these days! I'm actually a little late as usual! Your birthday was Tuesday! Here is what you are up to!

You repeat just about everything we say! You're alway
s asking "Okay?" wanting to know if we are doing okay! You also say "thank you Momma" when I hand you things! My heart melts every time I hear "I wuv you too!" When we put our shoes on you say "Let's GO!!!"

You drop everything to give me a hug and a kiss whe
n I ask, it melts my heart every time!

You are eating like a big boy, the other night you polis
hed off a pork chop and a half!

You LOVE all three Toy Stories and Cars! If you're grumpy these movies usually make you happy!! Mator is your favorite! You received a lot of
Mator objects for your birthday so you are a happy camper!

You've been sleeping in your big boy bed like a pro since
June. The first few weeks took some getting use to but now your a champ! You still love for us to read you a bedtime story before bed and now you LOVE to say your prayers when you lay down. You hold our hands and close your eyes and listen to use pray! It's the sweetest thing!

While you are a little sweetie, you spend a lot of time in time-out these days! Little fits your through for not getting your way earn you a spot there along with a spanking. We are hoping you will soon get the idea!

You want to do exactly what Daddy and I do! You received
a polo hat just like your Daddy's for you birthday and you wear it everywhere! You car a set of keys around when we say it's time to go, you would love to get your hands on the car keys if we'd let you! If we are on the phone you have your cell phone out too! When we ask who you are talking to you just say "k, bye!" and hang the phone up! You like to carry your bag or my purse for me!

You love to lay in our bed and watch TV with us at night! You snuggle down in between us and laugh at your shows!!! And you know you won't get to come back the next night if you throw a fit when we say it's time to go to your bed!

You would live outside if we would let you! The mud is your favorite! I'm not sure how you do it but you can spot the smallest little area of mud from a mil
e away, and trust me, you always get into it!

You love all your friends at Miss Aaron's! You and Tucker have become quiet the buddies, he even fake cries with you if your crying! Y'all play so well together!

Mommy started student teaching last week and you have had to adjust to your new schedule! You aren't too sure about waking up at 6:45! You are t
aking much longer naps due to this!

You LOVE to get your pillows and blankets and make a palate in the floor! You and I lay there and watch Saturday morning cartoons every Saturday!

We had your birthday party at Bodywork's' wate
r park! You LOVED it! We new you would though, you're a water bug! All you sweet friends came and you had a great time! You kept two pieces of pizza in your hands at all time. You devoured your cake too!!

We can't even begin to tell you how much we love you! You bring so much joy to Daddy and I! We are so proud of the little boy you are turning into! You sweet heart makes me so happy! Happy two years baby, we can't wait to see what the next two years hold!
