Five Things Friday

It's Friday! Friday comes around a lot faster during the summer, and there is only one Friday left before my boys go back to school. We have some fun things left to do before summer is over, so we better get a move on.

No More Diapers! I am so proud of Judson. A little determination and hard work paid off and our #4 son is out of diapers. The look on his face says it all. He cracks me up when taking pictures. Four out of five kids are potty trained. It has gone so fast and I cannot believe I only have to do this process one more time.

The Magic of Motherhood. The Good Stuff, the Hard Stuff and Everything In Between. This book is hard to put down. I have loved reading it. My sweet friend, Sheena, gave me this book when Lincoln was born and I have loved pouring over its pages. 

Christmas Stockings. I know, the words August and Christmas don't go together, but I need your help. I bought Lincoln's stocking last year on sale after we found out we were having a boy last December. I need to drop off Lincoln's and a stocking for Chris and myself to be monogrammed. My question is do I put Mom and Dad on our stockings? Or Chris and Kate? The boys want me to put Mommy/Daddy, but I'm thinking maybe the more formal Mom/Dad would be better (in a few years they probably won't be calling us Mommy/Daddy...which I don't even want to think about). I go back and forth and need to decide so I can beat the Christmas rush!

Sleep Regression. My sweet Lincoln was the best little sleeper but in the past two weeks, he has decided that he needs to get up four times a night. We have entered the 3/4 month sleep regression stage. This momma is TIRED. I decided to do some research...thank you google. What I discovered was that he is most likely overtired. I am trying some tips I found in the article and I'm hoping things will be back to normal in no time. I will keep you posted.

Twelve years. Sunday, August 6th, Chris and I will celebrate twelve years of marriage. I remember our wedding day like it was yesterday. I remember the carefree days of traveling the country with my new hubby and now we are here, at year twelve, with FIVE little boys. There is no one I would rather have by my side and to do life with than this man. I love you Chris. Here's to the next twelve, I pray they be just as fun and exciting!

Happy Friday, and please let me know what you have put on your stocking, Mom/Dad or your names? Also, any tips you have on beating sleep regression, please send them my way. I appreciate your help!
