It's time for a regular blog entry :D

I figured I'd take a few moments and update about my family!
Both of my boys are sleeping peacefully in my bed. It's been a long day already, my kids like to wake up regularly at 5:00 a.m. But I'm used to it. It does mean earlier bed times, so Bill and I get a chance to relax at night while the kids sleep. Although, I'm usually in bed by 8 anymore!

I'm really enjoying doing my blog these days. I love searching and reading about the free samples and savings that are out there. I like having the opportunity to 'try before I buy' and I'm sure you do too! If any of my readers have anything cool they want me to put in the blog, something you might have come across that others might appreciate, just send me an email through here or on facebook!

So life these days has been great. Cooper will start school next week!! I'm so excited and nervous. I think he will love it. He is so ready. Bennett is doing wonderful, he is really finding his personality. He is 'speaking' more and more! He has two teeth, with more on the way. Thankfully he hasnt bitten me :D although that wouldnt stop me from breastfeeding, I have heard that people wean when their kids get teeth, but maybe I am jsut lucky and have never had any problems with it! My baby is already 5 months old. The time is just flying by now that we have two children! They sure do keep us on our toes. But I wouldnt have it any other way!
Bill is under some stress at his job, he has been warned that the next 7 months are going to be the most stressful of his career thus far. I'm just praying it wont be as bad as he thinks it will be.
I have some big plans for the future. I am hoping to make a trip to Washington D.C. in June to meet up with the wonderful women I have gotten to know through La Leche League international mother to mother forums. Right now, I am planning on riding with another mom who I have already met in person, and her two children. She has a little boy name Bennett as well! It is an awesome opportunity, and I cant wait to *hopefully* meet my friends in person that I have been getting to know over the past 3 years. I found the forums when Cooper was 2 months old and I was having some troubles with breastfeeding. There are no local LLL meetings near me so this was the next best thing. I am so grateful for all the help and the friendships I've aquired. I couldnt have made it this far without them!
If you are struggling with BFing, or just want to talk to other moms for any reason at all (Trust me, we dont not just talk about breastfeeding! But these woman are so knowledgable in that aspect they can help w/ any problems you might be having!) check out the forums at http://forums.llli.org

well I'm off to take a little nap myself. Enjoy your day!

Sorry I'm so slow in replying lol. I just read through the blog right now. But yeah I have a friend who started whining and threatening that it was time to stop nursing her son when he gotten teeth. She did the same with her daughter. Though she did just stop nursing him at 1 year old. But whenever she did that I would just roll my eyes inside. PUHLEASE. I nursed Hunter for abit over 2 years, and he had a full set of teeth. Get over yourself. Lol. Sorry thats my little rant.
