Mobile Uploads and such

As you can imagine life is busy. I am getting the hang of the organizational aspects of juggling two children. I had a good run in the sleep department at night with Chambers pulling a 6 hr stretch for about 5 nights in a row. Now he's not sleeping quite as much but still going for a 5 hr stretch then a 3 1/2 hr stretch at night. I am ok with that but still tired.

If you know me then you know I LOVE to sleep. I can (and will) sleep anywhere at anytime. It's a family trait. My brother's ex-girlfriend used to call my momma's house "the house of sleep" b/c even in high school and beyond we revolved our daily activities around a good nap. Mardi Gras has always been tricky b/c there is so much to do and not enough time for naps. That can usually be solved by getting a hotel room closer to the festivities :)

I digress.

I take a lot of pics with my blackberry these days since it is always with me. I can then email them from my blackberry to Snapfish which is so easy. Here are the links to those pics (beware they are not the best resolution :)

Wow - A whole month!

Tomorrow marks Chambers' one-month birthday. I can't believe I have been a parent to TWO precious boys for a whole month!

Chambers is doing well. He is sleeping well at night also. He still gets up every 3-5 hours but goes right back down to sleep once fed. We are going to transition him to his nursery this week. I will still sleep in there or at least up stairs but I want hi to get used to the room and crib.

Moseley is also doing well. He is back in MDO which he loves. He is having a hard time these days adjusting to the fact that I can't hold him if I am feeding Chambers. This is true especially if the two coincide with his post-nap lovey-ness.

Moseley is so smart. He knows his alphabet, which means he can sing the song AND identify any letter in writing! He can also count to ten in English and sign language and can count up to ten objects. We are working on 11 through 20 but that's coming slowly. Next up, spelling :)

Well I hear Chambers' little cry for food so I had better go deliver :)

My Cuties

James Schiller (known to us as "big James") had his birthday party at the train depot in Calera, AL on October 25th. I did a post on this previously but just got these cute pictures also. We took the pumpkin express which took us to a pumpkin patch and back. It was a very cool real train and Moseley was beside himself. It excited himself so much that he slept the 30min ride home and for 4 hours afterward!
