Fall Fun

FALL IS FUN!!! We have been crazy busy these last few weeks catching up from Will's 1st birthday bash. Sorry for such a break in posting but here are some pictures to catch up. We have had a cousin's wedding last weekend, Preston turned 1 month old, and Will has been cutting about 6 teeth !!! Poor baby! (Actually we only have 2 that have cut the gum but the rest are coming and meltdowns are an every day occurence now). After picking out the perfect pumpkin in the patch (which Will loves to hug and chew on) we carved it the other night, cleaning out the insides while Will chewed on the pumpkin lid !! How funny he looked when it didn't taste quite what he was hoping for!!! Our picture below shows are wonderful artistic ability! Ha ha. Preston is growing like a weed and almost weighs 10 pounds but we are having some gassiness problems... seems he is having terrible gas and clenching up in pain after feedings as well as spitting up excessive amounts of his meals and crying in pain. Please pray for us and him as we are trusting in the Lord to take care of this issue. The doctors seem to think it is reflux and tried symptom relief with no results and now have put him on medicine. They say they aren't too worried since he is gaining weight really well but its hard to see your baby in pain. It has only been a couple of days now on the medicine but the dr says it takes a week before we can physically see results. So we are being PATIENT...but as some of you know, that is not my spiritual gift by a long shot. Also in other news, I am going back to work full time hopefully only temporary. I will start night shift in 2 weeks working 6 pm to 6 am 3 nights a week and working every other weekend. Woodie will also work at Sprint but the market here isn't as flourishing as it was in Louisville therefore we are temporarily sticking with it until something else opens up. We are having to get childcare for the boys and I have desperately searched so I don't have to put them in daycare... its not that my boys are too good for daycare or I don't think children receive good care there, after all I was practically raised in daycare from 6 weeks old. Its just that I don't want a total stranger taking care of my children all day. I mean there are days where I (a total sinner) run low on patience and speak a little harsher than I should to my toddler and they are MY flesh and blood. Anyhow, so we met a really sweet college gal from the University of Mobile and she was looking to do some nannying this semester. The Lord knew my desires and placed her in our path. So she will keep the boys in our home 4 days a week so I can sleep in the daytime and until Woodie gets home. The boys are growing so quickly. Where does time go? The other day Woodie commented on how they are "momma's boys" and I thought to myself, "I'll take them anyday. How sweet they are and how fast they grow up." I am sooo thankful for the Lord providing in every little thing for us this year has been a busy year and much has happened but in it all, we can say .... God is SOOO GOOD !!!
