Teething :(

Poor Peyton is having a rough time with the teething thing! Will and Cam both passed thru with flying colors, but not my little baby!

For the past month, he wakes up almost every night crying. I know it's from his teeth. And he's super cranky in the evenings. I give him Tylenol, but sometimes it just doesn't help.

He didn't have any trouble with his two bottom teeth, but he's got 4 (possibly 6) teeth coming in on top and his front teeth are BIG (at least they seem that way) and then the two eye teeth next to them. And I wanna say he has two molars coming in, but he won't let me get my finger in there long enough to feel, but I thought I saw some white buds back there!

I'm sure it hurts like heck! It's probably a good thing that we don't remember things like this from when we were kids! Hopefully all the teeth will hurry up and pop thru and he'll get back to my sweet little Peyton! I miss him! Haha!

Don't mind the chocolate rimmed mouth, but you can see his two big front teeth in this pic! They look like they hurt!

Three Years Ago...

Cameron Reed Flashnick came into this world weighing in at 10 pounds and 3 ounces and was 21.25 inches long! YES, he was HUGE! My doctor pulled him out and said “Here’s your newborn TODDLER!!”

He was born on a Thursday. I remember I finished up work on Tuesday and spent Wednesday with Will. I struggled really bad with having another baby and what it would do to Will. He was only 2 ½ and totally oblivious to all of it! So, we went and saw a movie and then took a nap together! He had no idea his world was about to totally change and he’d no longer have Mommy and Daddy all to himself!

We dropped Will off at Miss Lynne’s bright and early and headed to the hospital. I had to be there at 8. My induction started at 9. I got my epidural around 10:30 and it was AWESOME, OMG! So totally different than my epi with Will. I was numb, but could actually move my legs and kinda feel what was going on, but not enough to cause me any pain. I relaxed for a few hours, as best I could!

My doc came in around 2 and got prepped and I remember looking at my watch at 2:10 and then I started pushing! Cameron was born at 2:27pm! 17 whole minutes to push a 10 pound kid out!! I knew he’d be big, but I was totally shocked when he got weighed and Todd came back over to tell me! I was like, “Huh? Come again? He weighs how much?” Haha!

My Mom brought Will up later and he totally didn’t know what to think! I think it bothered him seeing me in the bed and unable to walk and hooked up to all kinds of wires and tubes. He kinda just looked at Cameron!

And here we are, three years later! Time flies! It just blows my mind! He’s such a little love bug! And then in the next second, sooo ornery and stubborn!! I love my sweet Cameron!!!! Happy Birthday, Sugar Booger!!!

Kindergarten!!!!

I officially have a child in KINDERGARTEN!! How is that EVEN possible??!! Wasn’t he just born like, yesterday??!! It’s just crazy!!

Todd and I both dropped him off and he walked right inside and knew exactly where to go. He sat down to eat his breakfast and that's when I started getting choked up.

I had to wait a few seconds before I could tell him to have a good day and that I loved him. Even when I said it, he looked up at me cause he knew I was crying. I gave him a big hug and we left.

We got outside and I lost it! Todd took one look at me and he did too! We spent a few minutes in the car completely silent and sniffling!

He had a great day though! And has been excited to go back each day, so that’s a positive thing!!

My “baby” is growing up!! *sniffle sniffle*

Rise and shine!!

Atlanta Trip!

If you've been reading this for awhile, then you might remember a post last October.

Last year, Heather and Harrison came to Texas to visit me and this year, Cameron and I went to Atlanta to visit her! Heather just had a baby! Sweet baby Tripp!


This year though, our friend Amanda from Florida drove up with her son Jackson to spend the weekend with us! Interestingly enough, I had never met Amanda. We talk on IM almost every single day and have for about 2 years! Crazy, huh?


It was awesome to meet her and cutie patootie Jackson!!


Us girls got along sooo well! It was like we’ve been hanging out forever! I love those girls!!


And the three boys…who are all ALMOST three got along really well also! There was the expected bickering and fighting over toys, but for the most part they all did great together! And they were soooo cute, OMG!!


We went to the aquarium and got a taste of what it would be like with triplets! EEEEK! I’ll take my three crazy boys at three different ages over three crazy boys all one age anyday!!!


It was a great weekend and we’re definitely going to try and do it every year. I wish it could be more often, but life just doesn’t make it possible!! But now we all have something to look forward to every year!




Feel free to check out the rest of the pictures from our Atlanta trip!
