Okay, so I don't have a ton to write about lately, but I can't click on the blog and see that fruit pizza again. It is annoying me.
Sweet bug-eyed baby in his sleep sack. Thank you, Megan. Ever since you gave it to him, he has slept from 8-5:30. I love that!!

So, I thought I would write about this little monkey. We are still trying to come up with a nickname for him, since we use all the other nicknames on his wild big brother. The only consistent one is "Slumpy" because he is always slumped over in his carseat. Heath thinks this name is going to give him a complex, though. Nanny calls him "Baby John."

P.S. - Heath is not crazy about always having to be the background model for my pictures. You can tell his hot-natured self doesn't wear much around the house, and I think it is hilarious that it is accidentally documented. He doesn't find it as hilarious.

I took this Baby Buyer with me to Market in Atlanta on Friday. He was a champion!! I loved it. He loved his Infantino baby carrier and stayed in it from 10-6 without fussing at all (except for time to eat)! We thought it was funny that they made us sign our lives away on a waiver and print him a badge to get him in. Also, the lady printing it could not get Lindsey and me straight from our licenses. She tried to tell us that I was Lindsey and Lindsey was me - even handed her the waiver to sign. We don't look THAT much alike.
He got a lot of looks at Market. I forgot he was there, except that I could feel his weight on me. He slept all day. People would look at me with weird faces, and it would take a second for me to remember they were looking at him, not me. Most people were very sweet and loved on him, but a few people said "How old is he? Should he be here?" Thanks. But he did fine, thank you. At one point, he and I went between some showrooms in a back hallway to feed. I explained to these sweet ladies that I was sitting with on the couch that I never thought I would be one of those people that breastfed in public (except for last year at the Galleria at a birthday party when Abby kept photographing me by the carousel, thank you Abby C.). They were very sweet, and of course I had my "Hooter Hider" on, so as to keep it classy :). Anyway, we got to talking and they had just placed a large order at a store. The man who owned the store walked out and commented that we looked thirsty and proceeded to bring frozen margaritas out for all of us. Thank you, John Burke! Score for Mommy. He also earned some male leg warmers with his smile. Trying to figure out how to use them!

Here are some of the finds from Market. How fun! We are going back in October to scout out some more fun jewelry for Christmas presents.
This little guy is so fun. I really want to encourage people contemplating or preparing to transition from one to two children that so far it has not been bad, thank GOD! I know that is not the case for everyone, but we are rolling along! Not to say everyday is easy, but not too many major meltdowns.
Turner at 2 1/2 months
John Burke at 2 1/2 months - do they look alike? Sometimes they do to me, sometimes they don't. I hear more often that they do!

Turner gets a little air time. Last week we went to a 30th birthday party for a friend. This car was parked outside. Turner has just learned to say "car", and he jumped out of our car squealing. I thought he was squealing about the balloons on the mailbox. However, this is what caught his eye. I picked him up to look at it, and he jumped in. At first I was embarrassed - Heath was already inside, and I was trying to get him out quickly. I didn't know whose it was!! I would run to one side, and he would run to the other. Then I went around, he ran back. Et cetera. Finally I figured I would get a picture with my phone and then gracefully dive in and capture him, which is what I did. I love this phase because he is talking so much more and making me laugh, but 19 months is WEARING me OUT! At least I am not pregnant and can halfway run after him!!
Breaking and entering at such a young age
