Puerto Rico

We took this trip back In November but it was too wonderful not to include in my blog. I promise I was born to live at the beach. The weather was wonderful. I only worked out once the entire trip because any free time I had I wanted to be by the pool, not in the gym:) My mom was able to go with us which made the trip. I wouldn't had been able to do it without her! We took a few turns staying in the room with Maxwell when he napped but she did most of the napping duty. Lots of sun, fun drinks, pool time and the whole reason we went - Flyer Basketball

These pictures pictures were taken the day before we left for Puerto Rico. We had fun playing in the snow but were so excited about getting to the beach and sun

After a 7 hour (yes, 7 Hour) delay we are on our way:) 

Life is good

John Thomas' favorite part of the trip - the slide. He went down this slide at least 1million times 

Proof that Tommy was there;) Daddy worked the whole trip while we played. Thank you, Tommy!

I'm back

It makes me sad I have gone so long with blogging! My boys are growing and changing so much and I hate it's not documented here. After renting for three years we finally decided to buy a house in Centerville, Ohio. Between moving, two boys, working, trying to grow my Advocare business I have been busy!! We also bought/moved in October when my husband started working 10+ hours days, 7 days a week.

John Thomas is doing great! He is such a good boy. He is an amazing big brother. He loves Maxwell!! It makes me so happy to watch them together.
John Thomas' teacher quit (because of health reasons) during the middle of the school year and we ended up moving him to a different school. I was nervous about the move but he has done amazing, no problems. I believe this was actually a blessing in disguise and we are very pleased.

Maxwell is growing and rolling. At his 6month appt he was 20lbs (90%) and 27 1/2inches (90%). He is a big healthy boy! He wears 12-18 month old clothes. He still is not sleeping through the night.
7 1/2  months old and I consider it a good night if I only had to get up twice. I can not wait until the day I get 6+ hours of sleep a night. I am sure I will be able to conquer the world;)

Maxwell has been on three flights so far - Minneapolis, Puerto Rico and Alabama (my first time flying alone with two boys)

A few pictures to catch up a little
