Yikes!  Yesterday I went to the dentist...the first time in a VERY long time.  I was so nervous!  As it turns out, I have to have a root canal done on Tuesday and boy am I scared!  I've never had anything like that done before!  I've had my 4 wisdom teeth pulled, but nothing else really.  So, think about me on Tuesday!  I am bummed though, because I have to cancel Kellen's speech session, which I have been fighting with the insurance company about and finally won, but now I have to cancel.  I will reschedule though. 

Happy Friday!  Its Easter weekend!  I can't wait to dye eggs with the boys and hide them!  Even though I think its supposed to rain.  Yuck!  Can't the Easter bunny do something about that?  We are going tonight to get the boys some fun Easter stuff.  I think we are going to get Kellen books since he absolutely loves books and reading.  Who knows, maybe he will start to read before he even talks!

I forgot to post that Grayson is now GROWLING!!!  Its pretty funny when he gets on all 4's, sways his shoulders back and forth and growls all at the same time!  Char says he looks like a gorilla!  Its hilarious!  I will try and record it for yall!

Cute and Not So Cute

The past week has brought some really cute developments, and a not so cute development.  Cute first!  Grayson is now getting up on his knees in crawling position!  And he rocks back and forth!  He is going to start crawling soon!!!  He is now in the blowing raspberry phase too!  And, he started doing this cute little dance where he rocks his shoulders back and forth!  OMG, I love it!  And he shakes his head "no" now too!  What a stinking cute!  Kellen continues to make my heart smile!  He started giving REAL kisses!!!  He leans in and gives me a kiss ANY time I ask for one!  LOVE!!  He gives Evan and Grayson kisses too!  Gosh I love that kid!  Char and Amber took Kellen to a birthday party and he had a blast! 

Ok, the not so cute.  Grayson is trying so hard to NOT nap during the day!  He actually succeeded yesterday too.  Exhausting!  He didn't eat much either, so maybe he is just going through some change.  As for Kellen, he is still not saying many words, and its obviously very frustrating for him.  He will be seeing a speech pathologist next Tuesday and I hope she gives me some tips!  Anyways, when we tell him "no", or stop him from doing something that he wants to do, he ear piercingly screams.  Oh man.  Its rough!

Picture update to come soon!
