Hello my mischievous child. :) Ben has been "challenging" me lately (to put it nicely). Poor baby is getting four teeth in at once, but I think it's more an early "terrible twos" thing than it is a teething thing. He is into EVERYTHING, and loves to show off his flair for the dramatic by throwing himself on the floor in passionate temper tantrums on regular basis. And in fun places like the library. Over the weekend, he went on a clothing strike and refused to get dressed, yelling "NO!!" and furrowing his brow anytime I suggested we put on a shirt. I know that he is just asserting his independence, and seeing how far he can push me, I have really had my patience tested on several occasions. My boy is such a doll baby most of the time and certainly gets away with a lot (he is my baby), but I will not be upset when this phase is over.
Hello Packing! We leave for Edisto Beach South Carolina a week from today! We're going with my family and I am so looking forward to relaxing at the beach for a week. But I have a LOT to do before we get to that point! Lists for each child. Getting laundry done. Grocery lists. Beach toys. Getting the dogs boarded. It takes a lot of prep to get away for a week! But I can't wait to get my toes in the sand!
