Where did Payton learn to walk? and Why isn't Braxton sleeping thru the night.

Well it finally happened Payton was leaving the living room and tripped and smacked his head on the stair going out of the living room to the kitchen. I have to say he has to have a hard head he only cried for 30 seconds and then was running around again. It scared me to death and it didn't split open but boy does he have a goose egg up there. SO last night I had to wake him up every 2 hours to make sure that he was ok. I wish he would slow down. So that was my night.

Braxton has decided to be stubborn and not sleep thru the night. He was doing so good but now he is getting up every 2 to 3 hours. I usually let him cry it out but it still wakes me. I can't wait to get over this. I thought about having another child but I like my sleep.

I will post pictures later of Paytons horn. LOL

10 years ago I was in high school

I have my ten year high school reunion in a two weeks and I just decided to sit down and think about what I have done and accomplished and what life has brought me.

1. Well I graduated college and was a decent division one athlete. .
2. I met my husband
3. Able to be a successful division one track coach
4. Had my two sons Payton and Braxton.

I don't regret any decisions that I have made through the last ten years. There have been times of feeling lost and not knowing what decisions but everything has happened the way God has wanted it to be and I can't question that.

What a big boy

Well since we moved to Illinois alot has changed in Payton's world and all for the better. He has had some speech delay but we are making a lot of progress. His favorite word is Mom and I hear it from the time I get home from work until he goes to bed. He loves cereal and will prepare it himself he just needs help getting a bowl down.

Where did it all begin.....

This is a blog about the lives of a non-traditional midwestern family. I am a full time working mother of two beautiful boys and a wife to a stay at home husband. We were married on June 15, 2002 and were blessed with two boys, Payton (4-19-05) and Braxton (2-08-07).
