Hey Friends,

So sorry that I have been MIA. We have had quite the busy week. When we returned from Orlando, I gave my official notice at work. My last day will be THURSDAY, JULY 23RD!!!!!!! I'm a tad bit excited, can you tell?

Looking forward to sitting down and posting pictures from this past week-end. My mom and stepfather were in town and so were Caleb's parents. We had some friends over on Sunday and really enjoyed the company and conversation.

But, Monday hit....and it was back to work for me! Today, we had Ben's ultrasound. The good news is that the little tube behind his belly button has a little hole, but on the interior end. This means 1) there is not a high risk of an infection entering his body because there would be no way to get in. That end of the tube is closed! and 2) He may or MAY NOT need surgery. We will have to wait until next week to hear what the doctor thinks. He's on vacation. But, praise GOD that this is not an emergency and it can wait!

Ben did have his 18-month check up last week. My little man is now in the 75th percentile for height! He is so stinking tall now. He weighs 25 pounds which puts him in the 50th percentile for weight.

So anything else new? (You might ask)

Well, yes......TEMPER TANTRUMS have invaded our little Ben something fierce. He has a will like nothing we've ever seen before. I have to admit that I have been thoroughly embarrassed on three different occasions. I am hyper-sensitive about "what others are thinking".

So, that's the long and short of it for now. Pictures promised!!

we should put ben and lucas in a room together and let them share tantrum-time. boys...

lucas has also mastered the terms "mine" and "no!" somehow, he picked up those words on the same day. hilarious.

We are with you on the tantrums. Anna has started stamping her feet and yelling. She'll stamp so hard she loses her balance. Hang in there!

hey girl, i saw on one of your friend's blogs that you are into couponing... I found out this week that you can actually go onto ebay and "buy" coupon lots....you actually technically pay for the shipping but you can buy like 150 coupons for like $5.

We're in the world of temper tantrums too... fun aren't they? Lord have mercy what happened to my dear sweet boy!

I know it's hard but tell yourself that the people watching have either 1. gone through this before and know what it's like or 2. have no children and therefore get no vote!
