Travels ...

So I was going to have a blog make over done to this plain jane blog, but I can't get it done. I can't find the hours in the day to do what needs to be done, never mind the things I just want done. hahah So you are stuck with this ... blog for now!
Traveling ...
Lets see, we have been camping at Yogi Bear, had family in town for Labor Day weekend, the race in Richmond, Cancun, and a Panthers game since my last post. I can tell you that while all of it was a blast I am TIRED OUT ... too much! Too much for me! This weekend (well tomorrow) we are leaving for the Charlotte races ... yes I just came home from Charlotte Monday ... Next weekend is my mini reunion party that I have been working on for MONTHS! Halloween is open, then Naji and Jarretts wedding, 1 weekend break and then family in town ... weekend break and then headed to Raleigh for my SnowBE's Christmas! Can we say I am ready to be HOME!

Yogi Bear: Our set up ... 4 camper quads and behind us were 4 other campers with us!

This was the "fun" for most of the weekend!

Play-dough time ... the kids LOVED it!

Bowden ... being the happy baby he now is!

Labor day fun:

Could we be 5?~

So I know that I said be on the look out for a change, but geeze the change has still not happened ... and I was holding out for another post until it did ... but I am giving up on my blog make over. 2 reasons ... 1st I am broke! Broke as a JOKE! Just cut my pay in 1.2 at work to "save" my company. Down from 36 employees to 5. 2nd gave up on the makeover when I figured out that I have to find all of the art work ... OMG that is hard! I can't do it right now!!!

Okay I am rambling ... let me move onto the could we be 5 ...

Over the last 3 days I have been wondering if it is normal that after 5 months of crying (when i found out I was preggo with Bowden) then 3 months of praying for him to hurry up and get a little older so we could get past ALL of HIS crying ... begging people for help because I could NOT handle him, his constant crying and I could not handle the fact that I had 2 babies under 2 ... So after all of that How can I sit here and miss it. Miss my babies, so small and wrinkled ... miss the new born stage with missing it HOW ON EARTH could I have actually said to Andy "we could have another!" He looked at me like I was growing a horn out of my eyes. Bowden walked into day care today. Holding my finger of course, but he walked from the car to his room, then asked me to pick him up, (pull on pant leg and grunts) of course with his big blue eyes and his dimples I could NOT resist! I love that boy ... how could I have so seriously HATED the infant stages with him. He was such a rough baby, really he was ... at 8 months old he was still waking 3-4 times at night. It was tough. It put a lot of strain on me and Andy, our relationship, Tatum, our parents (he was to stay out of day care with them until 1o months, we sent him at 7 months) But my GOSH he is such a good boy now! He is SO SO loving, hugging, kissing and smiling! I want to eat him up! For several split seconds I have thought about WHAT IF ... What if we had another ... I am hoping here that Kimmy will snap me out of this and tell me that it is normal, it is a phase and I am just weird!
