- 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!

He likes it! He likes it!
I had originally planned on breastfeeding Aleck until he turned two, but as soon as I found out I was pregnant, I decided it was time to start the weaning process. We dropped the midday feeding a couple of weeks ago, so now he only nurses first thing in the morning and before he goes to bed. Weaning has been a challenge because it absolutely breaks my heart for him to cry and ask to nurse, but I have been very consistent with him so the weaning process seems to be getting easier. I have been concerned because Aleck has absolutely refused to drink cow's milk, despite offering him milk with every meal. He would make a horrible face every time he took a drink from his cup. Yesterday, Aleck started drinking cow's milk. I guess he realized that Mommy means business about this weaning thing and if he wants milk, he is going to have to explore alternatives to Mommy's milk.
