tonight i will be walking in the ACS Relay for Life! woohoo! i'm pretty proud of myself, i just joined my team Aug 1st or so, and in 3 weeks i received $195 in donations. holla! plus at our tent, i am going to be doing face painting..not dinky little face painting on the kids cheek, but painting full-face animals on the kiddos. i was gonna practice on bubba but that didn't work out. he took off running! it might be a couple days before i update again, and add pics. relay is all night tonight, then i have my partylite party tomorrow afternoon. i'm gonna be exhausted but it's going to be totally worth it.
as for the boys, not too much new has happened. yesterday bubba took a 3.5hour nap...not sure what that was all about but i wish he'd do it more often! i got so much accomplished in that time. pooks slept for 2 hours, during bubbas nap, so it worked out well. i'm assuming bubba's sleep schedule is all jacked up because of his teething...he's been waking up at night just fussing. poor kid.
well, someone is covered in peaches so i gotta go. :)

my last post i commented on how bubba is getting so fussy and having temper tantrums, well i figured out why: both bottom molars have cut through the gum line. OUCH! i should have figured this out, he doesn't want to eat as much either. i feel bad for the little guy, so now that i know, when he is fussy i've been giving him some tylenol and that seems to help.
thats all for now, its too late! i know, i'm slacking as a blogger but these kiddos are wearing me out! ;)

as far as the boys, they are both doing great. bubba is starting to throw more temper tantrums, which i guess is to be expected. pooks is really starting to talk, smile, giggle and squeal. they both did super in the long car ride, they even slept the entire way home!
well, here are some pics from this weekend.
*the boys are ready to go swimming!*
*won't bubba love this pic when he's older?*

this one is my favorite! the looks on both of their faces is priceless...love it!
this one is 'ok' but i mostly like it because of the comparison of the boys' sizes. they are 13.5 months apart but pooks is already in size 3 diapers, bubba is in size 4! i haven't had pooks weighed recently but i'm sure he's almost 15lbs and bubba weighs 22lbs. pooks is catching up fast!
here is one of pooks looking ADORABLE! he's refusing to smile but still so cute!
here he is giving elmo a hug. seconds later, bubba swept elmo away and pooks started screaming...end of photo shoot!

i won't even get into all the mgmt/schedule crap that was an issue. the main problem was i worked 5-6 hours without breastfeeding or pumping and my milk supply was dropping--fast! ultimately breastfeeding is more important. i'm not going to give pooks formula because my supply dried up, because i was working; then use my paycheck to buy the formula i wouldn't even need if i wasn't working. hypothetically, if i had continued working i would have ended up switching pooks to formula, which would cost a total of almost $165/month. i only make a little over $500. So is it worth $300 a month to be away from the boys and B 5 nights a week? i think not. so not only did i quit but i didn't give a two weeks notice either. that would kinda defeat the purpose of keeping my milk supply up, if i let it dry up the next 2 weeks.
oh well. i'll enjoy giving the boys baths, going on walks, and actually seeing my hubby for more than 5 mins a day!

i fed him breakfast and started his seasame st. dvd so i could hop in the shower. he's blocked off in the living room and can't get into anything, so it works great for about 10min. (pooks was asleep in his crib). well when i got out of the shower, bubba was standing against the back of the loveseat looking out the front window. he's never climbed up on the loveseat by himself before. but there he was bouncing around, listening to his dvd, on the seat. so i set him down, he crawled right back up again. i finally distracted him singing and being silly. for about 1.5 hours.
for lunch i made him a PBJ. while i was cutting it into 'fingers' i could hear him banging some plastic thing; but when i looked into the living room...no bubba. so i call for him, and i hear the hitting the noise. i look over to find that he has pulled out the chair to the kitchen table, climbed up on it and is sitting on his knees infront of the laptop, banging on the keys. about gave me a heart attack! in one day, where he should have been completely out of energy, he managed to climb on to EVERYTHING!
so my question for the day is, how the heck do you babyproof a loveseat??

how cute was that? he is getting to be so active and talkative--i love it! he's at that age where he is really starting to do so much. he can do mini-push ups already and he is trying so hard to roll over. he sleeps on his tummy and i know one of these mornings i'm gonna find him on his back. its a double edge sword situation though; on one hand he is developing and learning so much but that also means he's no longer my little baby :(

at moms, bubba got to have a 'drumstick' ice cream cone and he played on his outdoor slide, indoors because it was raining. overall it was a good, relaxing day!
Here is pooks, making little faces in bed this morning...
bubba shocked that he did it all by himself!

plus i don't get any time with B. i literally walk out the door less than five minutes after he walked through it. i ramble off the last time pooks ate, tell him whats for dinner and what the status is on that, kiss the boys, kiss him and i'm out the door. he's done great though. i come home to a cleaned up house, the boys are asleep and i don't have to worry about doing anything before i go to bed. he even waits up for me! its nice, but i told him to catch some zzz's while he has the chance ;)
as for pooks and bubba, they are cuter than yesterday! pooks is really starting to smile, grin, laugh and babble. he just 'talks' and talks. the best time is right after a bottle...he is so happy and content he'll just grin. its so cute! i got some really great pics today but i'm too lazy to upload them onto the computer right now. maybe tomorrow.
bubba, man does he keep me on my toes! today while i was changing pooks diaper, bubba stuck his finger in the electrical outlet. he didn't get hurt, but it scared the hell out of him. he came running to me holding his little hand, and whining. when we came out to the living room he kept pointing at the outlet and grunting. poor kid. the outlet cover was right there on the floor. i don't know if B or i forgot to put it back in, or if he got it out. the little explorer, i'll have to really keep an eye on him around that outlet!
