We've been busy bees over here...
This week has been full of Harrison re-cooperating from being eaten alive by mosquitoes for ten days, getting poison ivy in several areas of his body, a serious sinus infection, and a pulled muscle in his back...Bear Grylls has got nothing on him. And now our grocery bill will most likely double because he is literally a bottomless pit, and eats constantly.  It's funny how easily I forget that...

Jack was also sick this week with a little cold but nothing slows that kid down.  We made it outside today for the first time this week only for him to play basketball in the rain and do some good puddle jumpin...probably wasn't the best thing for his runny nose, but he loved it.  

How I've avoided all the sickness between my boys throughout the past several weeks, I'll never know, but I'm giving credit to my prenatal vitamins.

And I've had such a blast photographing some cute families lately.  And Georgia is so green and gorgeous it makes it that much more fun to use it as a backdrop.  If you can stand the humidity, that is.

A Dr. Pepper kind of day

This single parenting/being pregnant stuff ain't for sissies.
Jack was a little challenging difficult today.
He wouldn't eat anything..that I wanted him to eat, anyway.
His nap time consisted of him throwing his pillow, blanket, sippy cup, and Buzz (his sleeping companion) out of his crib over and over until I knew there was no hope in getting him to nap.
And he seemed to be taking note of everything I put away and he would pull it back out again as soon as I left the room.
Sounds like fun, no?

But then about an hour before bedtime I sat in his room with a container of yogurt while he played. And it didn't take him long to see what I was eating, and he was sitting next to me waiting for a bite. After about a minute he obviously thought I wasn't feeding him fast enough so he took the spoon and yogurt away from me to feed himself.
How could I stay frustrated with him when he looks like this?
 He was kind enough to leave me least two whole bites.
Even on days like today, I love being a mom.
I highly recommend it.
