The weeks are flying by! We are always so, so busy! Last week, we had something every single night! Thankfully, this week has been a much slower pace. I have had this post in my drafts for over a week now. Hopefully I'll finish it soon. I guess you know it's been a while since you last updated your blog when someone asks your husband if everything is alright at home because I haven't posted in so long. Ha!

We gave my precious friend, Stacy (& her hubby), a diaper shower/baby blessing. She is having her 3rd baby, Landry, next week. We have been pregnant together with our last 2 babies. It was such a great night of laughing, talking, eating and prayer. So thankful for all these couples!

It has been so great having older children while also having a newborn. I have built in babysitters!! Score! Anytime I need to cook dinner, clean, do laundry, etc. the girls are always willing to hold Rhett. It doesn't last for too long, but I'll take all the few minutes here and there that I can get!

Cash had a fire truck come to his school last week. They handed out fireman hats. He wore that thing for days! He even took it to bed with him a couple of nights! Can you take a wild guess what he's going to be for Halloween?

Maggie joined Girl Scouts this year. This is a new thing for all of us. I was never involved in it growing up and Lily hasn't been in it either. Maggie had a mom in her kindergarten class start a troop and almost all the girls were joining. So, of course, we signed her up. Conn and I made a decision that during the Fall we weren't going to sign the kids up for any activities. With Rhett being born and having 2 girls in school full time, we just thought that it would be best to take a few months to get used to this "new" life. Her troop only meets once a month, so we figured we could handle that. :)

Littlest man is doing great! He will be 6 weeks old tomorrow! Wow! We haven't been to a check up since he was 2 weeks old, but the boy is getting huge! Little rolls are starting to form everywhere and there is definitely another chin that showed up. Ha! So stinking cute! He still HATES his car seat and pretty much anything that has to do with being put down. So, we do a lot of cuddling and staying home during the day. We get bored at times, but I just can't take the screaming in the car! AHHHHH!!!!! Praying it ends soon! Other than that, he is perfect!

Over the weekend, Mrs. Janet, Lindsay and Parker stopped by to love on the kids! We miss having Lindsay around, but SO thankful she stops by for visits when she is in town.

Momma snuck away for a couple of quiet, relaxing hours. Heavenly!

My life long friend, Callie, wrote an amazing post on her blog about the ups and downs of motherhood. She is my rock star friend who has had 4 babies in 3 years! You can read her post here.

Hope you all have a great weekend! It's beautiful right now in my neck of the woods! :)

So, it's a long shot, but worth a try. Gracyn was a nightmare in the car as a newborn. She screamed non-stop, then, someone suggested I remove the newborn pillow piece, that forms a roll over their head. I took that out and she was perfectly content from then on. I guess she just didn't like the feel of that bulky thing over her head. It's worth a try!! He is adorable!!! :)

Seriously, drop him off with me. I would love to cuddle him while he still likes to be cuddled!!! :)

Great to see you this morning. You look terrific!!

Kristyn said...

You look great girl! I'm glad that everyone is adjusting well! And I hope that he starts to like his carseat soon :) I'm sure he's going to be in it quite a bit.
