Due Date


On Sunday we took Will to all three services.  We have our adult Sunday School at 8:00, I teach middle school at 9:30 and then we had service at 11:15.  I wore him in Aunt Sharon's wrap and he did really good.  He cuddled up next to me for the almost four (4) hours we were there and didn't make a peep. I did feed him twice; once during Sunday School and at the end of the service.

After church we went to Blue Coast for lunch where Finn somehow got me and Daddy to arm wrestle at the table.  I smoked Michael (I really didn't). 

Once home we all took naps and hung out the rest of the day.


On Monday, Will and I stayed home all day and cuddled.  I go back to work on Wednesday so I wanted to soak up as much snuggling as I could.  I also finished the entire series of Downton Abbey. 

Monday was also Will's actual due date.  I thought about this pretty regularly during the day and got a little bit weepy.  I am not sad to go back to work, I just know that this is my last maternity leave and it is coming to an end.  As for going back to work - I am not dreading it. I am returning to the best possible work scenario.

On Monday evening Michael took Finn for his special night.  They went to Target and to play Put-Put.  Finn got two (2) holes in one.


On Tuesday I went to get my haircut.  My stylist moved to Ohio, but before she did she referred to me to a new girl.  I like her.  I had to take Will with me and he was thankfully good as gold the whole time.  He really only fusses when we put him in his crib.

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.

Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 

Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Mexico Beach

Today I embarked on my first ever “girls’ trip.”  I have always had friends that went with their other girl friends on beach vacations, but I have never been on one myself. 
The trip started at 6:30 a.m.  I kissed the boys goodbye (Finn woke up to make sure that he got a hug) and hopped in my newly cleaned van to head to Robyn’s house. I had originally intended to meet Samantha and Karen in Hendersonville, but I spent a little too much time with the boys and got behind.  Instead, we met at Robyn’s house a little after 7:00.
Once we all arrived, we packed up the van and set out for 109.  The van has really come in handy.  We were able to get all of our suitcases, bag, pillow, etc. packed neatly into the van with room to spare.

We officially hit the road at 7:30 – the destination – Mexico Beach Florida.  Samantha’s mom has a condo that she graciously let us rent at a ridiculously low price.  The crew consisted of Samantha, Robyn, Karen and myself.  Samantha sat up front with me; Robyn an…

Gatlinburg 2.0

In mid-June Finn and Sam accompanied Grandad and Gigi to Gatlinburg.  This is their second annual trip so will refer to it as Gatlinburg 2.0. Michael, Will and I were at home, so outside of some awesome pictures and few sweet phone calls, we don't have a great deal of knowledge about the trip. What I do know is that the trip started with hot Kristy Kremes.  Upon arriving in Gatlinburg, Finn asked if the "hot sign" was on.  Seeing that it was, they stopped in for donuts.

They also went back to Clingman's Dome.  They went last year, but I didn't pack long pants and jackets so they were pretty chilly.  It was also really foggy last year.  This year went as planned; the air was clear and the boys were warm.

One of my favorites!

Another favorite.

And . . . another favorite.

They went to Dollywood later than evening and then again the next day.

It amazes me how pop culture "savy" kids are at 5.  I was never that "in the loop."
