Our morning started off with Josh leaving town for Birmingham, AL…..he was up early and gave Maddox a bottle and then headed out.  First thing this morning Carter had to go potty and I went in to turn on the light, Maddox started crying…like a hurt cry.  I come in my room and Maddox had been standing up holding on to the computer and fell and bit his lip pretty hard.  He was bleeding.  I picked him up and went in the bathroom to check on Carter…literally as I am walking in, Carter is falling (he slipped on his soft Pajama pants) andhit his head on the cabinet and bit his bottom lip.  Now both of my boys are bleeding and crying…aayyyeeee.  Breath…recite Philippians 4:13.. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

OK, now after the initial morning drama, the boys and me had a great morning.  Carter and I have been working on his colors for several weeks now.  Either he really isn’t getting it, or he doesn’t want me to know…take your pick.  So this morning I let him pick which color he wanted to make his pancakes.  He chose green, seems to be his color of choice, he wants to wear his green shirt everyday:) 

green-pancakes The boys both seemed to love the green pancakes.  I think Maddox actually ate more than Carter did.  Maddox started eating some “non-baby” food about 3 weeks ago.  He still hasn’t had too much just pancakes, goldfish, he did have a little cookie the other day.  He really seems to like noodles…spaghetti. 

Next, I had planned a PJ day and we were going to stay home all day, but Daddy forgot to take back our redbox movie we had rented so I had to get the boys ready and go take it back.  We took it back to WalMart and picked up some waffles and bananas for tomorrow.  Since Monday is free movie code, I let Carter get a movie.  He picked Kung Fu Panda.  When we got home, I put Maddox to bed and Carter and me had a “date”.  We made popcorn and snuggled up and watched the movie.  It was a good movie, Carter loved it.  He watched it twice today and will probably watch it once more before it has to go back tomorrow. 

Tonight Carter asked to call his “Aunt Anna”!  I thought that was great since we don’t see Josh’s family much he usually only asks to call Daddy, Grandmother, and any of Aunt Yessie (Leslie), Baker Cooper or Mack Mack:)  So, we called Aunt Anna, Carter got on the phone and said “Happy birthday Aunt Anna”…that is really funny considering her b-day is in April.  I have no idea what goes on in the mind of my sweet child:)  I guess he could have been confused because he called to tell his cousin Caleigh Happy Birthday (she really is 5 today, Happy birthday Caleigh!) a few hours earlier. 

So, all in all…I had a wonderful day with my boys!  We miss Daddy and can’t wait until he gets home!
