Davis has the cutest curly hair, & we just love it. Until now, it's been very manageable and adorable. Lately, I've been getting pressure from some of the men in our family to cut it! For a while I thought there was really no need, since it just keeps getting curlier and curls up to his little head. Lately, it's been getting a little wild though! He sometimes looks like a mad scientist. David called him Albert Einstein the other day. It's killing me to think that we may have to actually cut it (trim it) soon. As for now I'm going to hold off and see how much longer we can make it! He's 16 months old and hasn't had a hair cut yet. It seems we're a little behind schedule, since his best friend Kooper has already had 2 and he's only 6 months old!!!

For the past few weeks my husband, David, has been wanting to try this crazy "Master Cleanse" diet. He had good intentions and really wanted to do it to be healthier & "cleanse" himself. Not just to loose weight, like most women would do. Anyway, I thought it sounded crazy, and tried to talk him out of it. Lemon juice, maple syrup, cayenne pepper, & water is what the mixture is made of. Yuck! This diet consist of only that mixture for 10 days. I think he was determined to see what his body could handle more than anything.
Saturday was the big day. He went and bought all the ingredients which ended up costing more than we thought, due to the special syrup. But, I guess since he would not be eating anything else for 10 days, we would actually save some $ this week. Saturday morning he started it and seemed to be very excited at the challenge! Saturday afternoon, things were going pretty good. Saturday night, Davis & I went out to eat with my family and left David at home nursing a headache. By the time we got home (8:00) the diet was over! And I think that one day was cleansing enough. I actually think it's a little funny, but I would never say "I told you so". Well maybe I would!
So I guess the answer is....Not to Cleanse. Or maybe just cleanse a little, Like for one day!

Davis is on the verge of telling us everything that's in his pretty little head. I just know it! He is full of so many stories that are just teetering right at the surface. For now, I'll just settle for cute little chatter and silly gibberish! Here's a little clip of him telling his daddy something really important!

Today while sitting with Davis in our rocking chair, I was thinking how precious these moments are right now. Davis is 16 months old and being his mom is more wonderful than I ever could have imagined! He's so great & every month that he gets older, seems to get better & better. I loved the baby baby stage, and now I'm loving this stage. I can't even begin to imagine how the next stage will go. Which make me think about our new arrival coming in October. In case you didn't know, we are thrilled to be adding a little baby girl to our family! If I really think about it and let myself simmer on it, I can get worked up about this new baby & Davis- meaning that I am a little anxious as to how I will handle my baby boy & a new baby girl at the same time. It's a little bit unsettling sometimes when I try to imagine different scenarios with 2 little ones. Just as I was sitting in the rocking chair this morning, thinking about that same thing, my precious baby boy had drifted off to sleep. He was getting comfortable & rolling over towards me, when my unborn baby girl kicked and rolled at the same time. What a precious moment. I have one precious baby in my arms, one precious baby in my belly, and I'm feeling them at the same time. As I looked down at my little love bugs, I couldn't be more amazed at how God works in our lives. I knew that everything would be fine and this new chapter in our lives would lead to many more precious moments such as this. The plans he has for us are truly amazing and I can't wait to see what else he has in store for our family. That one precious moment on an ordinary Saturday morning, will always live in my mind, as one of the sweetest times of my life. I know I'll still remember it, when my babies are gone and starting families of their own. These time are truly precious moment & I know there's more to come...

Wow, How easy was that?!?!?!?! Setting up this blog took me about 2 minutes. Now I can see what all the hoopla is about! I've been meaning to do this for a while now, so here it goes...
Thank goodness for peer pressure. Because all of my friends have one, I had to join in too. It will be a nice way to share what's happening in our lives. Check back for updates on the fam and reports on our baby girl that's on the way! Gotta run for now.
Live, Laugh, & Love!
