The Face

Is this not the face of exhaustion!?!? Today was Caleb's 2nd Birthday Party! We all had a blast with lots of friends! (and got a bit too much sun!)

Mordakiah got a hair cut today! Could he look any funnier!?!? We had to hide all the mirrors in the house so he wouldnt know to be embarrased!

Got Milk!?!?

I'm having blog issues. I publish a blog, but it never shows up. Normally my posts are mainly pictures, and might have a caption....this doesn't happen then. My blogs choose not to appear when i've written a story! So the short of it (again):
Soon after Gracie was born we discovered she has a "bubble pallet" which makes it difficult to nurse. Meaning: 30 minutes of nursing would get her one ounce of milk (a home nurse came and weighed her to see), and i would be bleeding from her trying to latch. so i quickly switched to pumping. Meaning: every few hours i pump (switching between 3 pumps, but mainly using a hand pump because it gets my milk out the best). Thank goodness for our new van with "privacy glass"!
So our 5 foot freezer is almost full of milk now. (the boxes you see are full of milk, and the shelves on the door have milk as well!) i dont know how much longer i will be pumping. it's trying. putting it lightly. right now its not too bad because after being pumped, the milk can actually stay at room temperature for 6-10 hours without having to be refrigerated. so i just bring the bottle. no cooler. no heating. once i stop pumping i will be thawing, heating, having coolers, and a way to heat the bottle while out. not looking forward to this! plus, we will be out of freezer room soon.
i dont want to sound ungrateful....i have been blessed to be able to keep my milk supply up while pumping (totally different than while nursing!). i am blessed to have so much milk stored. i am blessed to be able to still give Grace my milk, and all the benefits that go along with it!
However, if you feel like saying a prayer than Grace will be able to latch so we can nurse...that would be great!

Caleb is now TWO! Which now means he has an excuse to throw fits, not listen, argue, not nap, and only do what he wants, right?!?! He had a great birthday! Daddy came home early from work (and let him do whatever he wanted..."it's his birthday"!) and Titi and his great Grandma and Grandpa came over for dinner. I can't believe my little larva baby boy is TWO! :)

Caleb loves to share with Gracie. I love it! Its so cute, he just does it on his own.
and, or course, he wants to show Mordakiah (who wants nothing to do with the moving and roaring dinosaur)!

Trying out the frisbee!
Toys, Toys, Toys!
This is by far Caleb's favorite gift...his dinasour! He treats it just like he treats Mordakiah!
...and the dragon (which he later let eat some cake!)

Coloring Eggs

Almost forgot to blog Caleb's favorite part of the day...coloring the eggs! He was wrist deep in color after the excitement of the wire "spoon thing" wore off! His favorite part was the splash as he dropped (threw) the eggs into the color!
