About Me

My photo
Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!

I love my sleep!

For the last week, Aleck has been transitioning to one nap a day. He was getting harder to put down in the morning, so I have been pushing his nap time back. He goes down in between 10 and 11, but today I put him down at 11:30.

He slept through the entire night for the first time in FOREVER. For the last two weeks he woke up around 3 or 4 am and I would let him cry himself back to sleep. It usually took less than 5 minutes. Aleck would wake up again around 5:00 so I would go in to nurse him and he would go back to sleep. Today, he slept until 6:30. I am not a morning person, so before kids I would have never thought that I would be grateful to get to sleep until 6:30 a.m. Aleck is teaching me to truly appreciate the little things in life.

Aleck is showing an inclination towards drumming. Gee...I wonder why. Could it be the fact that he has at least 12 different drums and he listens to Tom drumming all the time? I got a video of Aleck playing Tom's drum kit last night. I will post the video in the next few days.
