Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Happy long weekend everyone! Of course as a stay-at-home mommy what is the difference between weekday, weekend, or holiday. Even better, what's the difference between middle of the day and middle of the night. Its all the same to a hungry baby!! But I am not complaining because I am grateful for my 2 healthy boys and I'm glad that Alexander is eating well and growing (a lot!!) and that I have enough milk to nourish his sweet little growing body! He is already wearing 6 month clothes at 7 weeks old! We go to the pediatrician on June 1st and I'm very curious to see what that boy weighs. Benjamin goes in too for his 2 year appointment. Fortunately Shawn can go too so I won't have to do it on my own.

We are enjoying a fairly lazy weekend. Shawn and Benjamin spent the morning cleaning up the back yard which was a mess from all the rain we've gotten over the last week. It rained every day last week! I think its letting up finally though because today has been mostly sunny. Hopefully it holds out because we were invited to a barbecue tomorrow. I spent most of the morning feeding Alexander. He's eating less than every 2 hours today. I think we may be going through a growth spurt.

In scrapping news...

Inspiration Lane is welcoming a bunch of new designers and they are having a blog train to celebrate. It is a very cute Pirate Themed kid called Swann and Sparrow. Here is a lo I made using Steel City Scraps portion of the kit.

A final note-it just started pouring...AGAIN! I guess the rain is not over! Well, we are in a drought so all this rain is good. At least we got some outdoor time this morning!
