Life with Griff...

Life with Griff has changed everything, for everyone! (in a good way of course).  We have discovered he is a little colicky. {bummer}  He is really fussy at night time...just before or right at bedtime.  Hopefully he grows out of that quick!  I have stopped eating the majority of dairy things in hopes that might help.  We'll see.  It's hard to completely get rid of ALL things dairy, so we will start here and see what happens.  Popcorn seems to be a big culprit...anyone ever had issues with that one?!

The napping is getting better, now that we fixed the see it was broken because Ethan thought he could swing in it too, and actually snapped the little bar that holds it in place...but Grandpa fixed it for us...and saved us $120 of buying a new one!!!  Thanks Gramps!

Oh!  And the basement is done.  The boys have NOT moved down yet, I am a little hesitant.  We still need to put up window treatments and paint Sammie's furniture.  That might take a few weeks, as we are on a painting burn-out. :(

I am completely enjoying my maternity leave.  I can't imagine going back to work and honestly am dreading it.  I know Nick will do just fine taking care of the boys, but he's not Mom! :)  At least I still have about 6 more weeks off.  That's reassuring!

Ethan met a girl at school that makes him embarrassed to talk about!  Hehehe!!  It's so funny.  Her name is Anasia.  I mention it and he stops talking and won't even look at me.  He tells me he plays dress-up with her.  How sweet of him!!  Last week I asked him if he wanted to draw a card for Daddy, and he said "No, for Anasia" this appropriate for Pre-school!?!?  She's a cute little curly blond-ish redhead.  Can't wait to see how their friendship will grow throughout the school year!

And Sam...oh Sam.  My little sweetheart.  He has really had big changes in the last 3 weeks.  He "lost" his Mama, as everyone is saying.  It breaks my heart to feel that he might think like that.  He now prefers Daddy over Mommy...that breaks my heart too.  Trust me!  If Daddy could nurse Griff, he would so I could get that little extra time with Sam! ;)  Overall, Sam is handling it really well.  He is always giving Griff kisses and wanting to help with whatever I am doing for Griffin.
