So I've decided since I forget to blog and then when I do I have SO much to catch up on that I need to try to blog once a week and I'm going to try to do that on Fridays or at least before the weekend is over!!

We've had a good week! Tuesday night was my first night alone with Sam and we had fun. He crashed about 730pm and slept until 445am. Wednesday night we spent the night with Grammie and it was fun. She let us sleep with her in her king size bed! Sam liked that since he loves to stretch out!

We went up to size 2 diapers this week! My little man is growing so fast and we increased his formula! We have been putting cereal in his bedtime bottle for the last few weeks but I think this weekend we are going to give it to him by itself in his high chair! I am excited about that. Sam has become a bottomless pit! He turned 4 months old yesterday and we go Monday for his check up. I always love to hear that he is doing great but not looking forward to the shots.

When I came home last week Frazier told me to come in the back door b/c something was wrong with the front door. I walk in and Sam is asleep and I think he is walking me down the hall to see Sam but he walks me into the living room and on the mantle is a 16x20 picture of my sweet dumpling. It is my mom's day gift but he couldn't wait and I couldn't either! It was so overwhelming for me. For those of you who know me well I never knew I'd be able to have a baby and I'd walk into friends homes that have pictures all over their walls of their child and then last night as I ate my dinner and watched TV I was in my living room looking at a picture of our son and it just took my breath away. Often in life people question God why this or why that when something bad happens but I find myself saying what did I ever do to deserve this precious life. Not a day goes by that I don't thank God for my beautiful baby!

Please keep our sweet friends Margaret, Darren & Annsley in your prayers. Annsley has RSV. We hope she feels better soon!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
