Sutton is 9 months!

Sweet Sutton Henry is 9 months! 
He continues to be such a happy, content child.  He is ALWAYS smiling with those sweet dimples.  He loves his brother, and will follow him around the room wherever he goes. He is still a huge Mommy's boy. He must be next to me if I am close by.  No one else can hold him for long when I am in the room.  He makes my heart melt daily.  Whenever I go to pick them up at Miss Lily's, he crawls so fast to my feet and pulls up for me to pick him up!
Sutton has two bottom teeth, and one of his top front teeth has just broken thru.  He can stand up for a few seconds without falling, and pulls up and cruises on everything.
Just recently, he has really gotten attached to his bear lovey.  It is magical to him. He can be extremely fussy and mad, but give him his bear and he is immediately ready for bed.  We now have four of these magical bears!  He is still a thumb-sucker and he takes his bear and wraps it around his fingers while he goes to sleep.
He also will put the bear lovey in his mouth and crawl around the floor with it.  It beyond sweet:)

Cohen and Sutton will just laugh out loud at each other while we are in the car.  Co will do something, Sutton will copy him, and then they will just cackle.

Now, for some pictures of these perfect boys!

Co said "cheese" when he got in this box. I took his picture, then he said,
"I want more cheese in the box!"

There is the magical bear lovey.  Just not so magical in this picture:)

These boys are so, so much fun!  Chad and I think we have the funniest family. We laugh at the crazy things Cohen says everyday.  He is such a funny, sweet, boy!  He is always watching out for Sutton.  He will see Sutton crawling towards the cat food, and grab the bowl and put the cat food on the table, and say, "No cat food, Sutton!"

Much Love,

Wild, Crazy Summer!

I haven't updated the blog in awhile, and apologies for this post not having any pictures.  My camera is in Cohen's room and I dare not wake him to get it.
This summer has been the busiest, craziest couple of months in my adult life.  But God has held my hand and eased my anxiety throughout this time.

I'll start in April....I got a phone call from a recruiter asking if I was interested in taking a job as a clinical specialist.  I was not looking for a job at all, however I decided I would interview for the position and see where God led me.  I was very, very prayerful that God would lead me whichever way He knew was best for me and my family.  Well, the first week of June I received an official job offer letter, and.......we got a contract on our townhome!  The day before we got the contract, the townhomes across the street burned and 3 families lost everything. So sad, but everyone was unharmed. Praise God!

My new employer!

A month after we got the contract on our townhome we bought another house!  Well, it is being built and will be finished in February.  We are very excited to be building our home where our family will stay for a long time, God willing.  I have already envisioned the home very full of so much love and laughter with our boys running up and down the stairs and playing ball with their Daddy in the back yard!  It is just a few miles away from us now, off of Concord Road.  We have had to go speak with the builder a few times and when we drive through the neighborhood Cohen says, "Big house. Cool house. Mommy, Daddy, Cohen, Sutton get a new house?!" His best bud Woodson also lives the next street over. This leads him to say, "Woosson's house! I want to see Woosson!" Then he screams when we pass Woodson's street.

I also got a new work phone, which means my primary phone number will change. This is a bummer because I have had the same cell phone number since 1997! 

Lovin' this crazy life!
