Night #1

I'm here in Alabama with the kids visiting family for a few weeks. Needless to say, these were not the original sleeping arrangements of the evening. Somehow, after one and then the other waking up at who-knows-what-hour and both of them crying and wanting to be right next to me, and neither wanting the other to have me, we all found a happy place on a little round fouton cushion in the middle of the living room floor.
Don't you love getting little ones used to sleeping in a different place? Needless to say, we will be hunting down a pack and play today!
This post is dedicated to my good friend Erin Neiner who is experiencing the exact same thing this week =)


And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air. . .
Yes, this is how he sat all throughout the evening of fireworks. If Alex let up the least bit, AJ would reach up and put his hands right back in place. That's o.k. little buddy, one day you will have to carry the weight of protecting and providing for those you love, but for now just sit and let us cover your ears from the scary boom booms.


I hope you all are having a wonderful 4th of July weekend!
AJ almost fell asleep over his lunch today, and that was just too cute to keep to myself.
I would title this: "Tired Boy Tolerating Noisy Big Bossy Sister" any other suggestions?
