Ashley, that is such an awesome list and I admire both of u guys. You are blessed! Oh, I had to smile when I read " his passion for hurting people". I was like " what, cobb wouldn't hurt anybody?!?". Haha it's late and my mind isn't working.

I so wish we lived closer together. Conn and Jason are so much alike - merciful, encouraging, fanatical about clothes and shoes, awesome runner, hates being short, going to doctor's visits, passion for hurting people, lives for fantasy football, best friends with father-in-law, great daddies, could lay in bed all day and sleep... Wow! The main difference is that Jason isn't funny like Conn - and I totally do not mean that as a negative against Jason. He's just a more serious person.

Another reason I wished we lived closer because I so think we'd be friends - all the things you said in your reply to my breastfeeding questions. Thank you so much. Everything you said made perfect sense. It would be so nice to be around a family that isn't scheduled because then I wouldn't have to feel like I'm a failure as a mom. We aren't scheduled people either...and quite frankly, I love it because Jackson (and hopefully Allison) is so flexible.

Thanks so much for the advice. I think I'll pump after each feeding and also when she goes for a long time in between feedings. I prefer to feed her myself, but I would like the comfort of having something in the freezer for emergencies and date nights. And hey, I don't think you are crazy at all. I think you are totally balanced!

Thanks for the advice yesterday. Now I have another question for you! Is Maggie's middle name Mae, or is her first name Maggie Mae? We are thinking about putting the name Mae in for a first name, but we also already have a middle name that we really like so are trying to pair the Mae with a shorter name to be the first name. Does that even make sense? Just wondering!
