A little of this, a little of that

Today is the first day in a week that I have actually been able to breath out of my nose.  I have had a horrible sinus infection and it's been awful.  Parker is feeling a lot better after a round of antibiotics.  All we want is to be a normal functioning family again. 

It looks like our area may be in the direct path of tropical storm Issac.  They do expect it to be a hurricane by the time it makes land fall next week.  Part of me wishes that Issac would come this way so it will blow all of this pollen and gnats away. 

I can't believe my baby will be 2 in 10 days.  Wow, time really does fly when you're having fun.  Today is day 5 without a paci.  It has'nt been easy, but it's getting better.  He asked for it only once yesterday.  The pedi was telling me that it takes 4 days to form a habit.  Now, the big news.  On Wednesday night, we were sitting on the couch and Parker tells us he needs to go potty.  I take him and sit him down and guess what?!  HE WENT PEE PEE!  He was so proud of himself. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Busy Month

August has been and will continue to be a busy month for us.  I'm the judge chairman for the Baldwin County Distinguished Young Women program, formerly Junior Miss.  It's so dear to my heart.  I participated back in 1998 and won the Spirit of Junior Miss award.  After college, I contacted the chairman for Baldwin County and got involved in their local program.  I love it and I hope I can inspire young ladies to participate when they are a senior in high school.  I made so many wonderful friends with girls that went to different schools in Washington County.  With that being said, our program is August 25th and I have been busy making sure we are all prepared for the big night. 

I had to take Parker to the doctor yesterday and he has another ear infection in his right ear.  Hopefully he will feel better soon.  We have been enjoying our weekends playing with friends.  My favorite part of the weekend is Sunday.  I absolutely love going to church and then grabbing lunch with our friends.  When I was in high school, I was in a singing group called IMPACT.  It was a christian group and we would travel and sing at church, school programs and things like that.  I guess that's why I enjoy singing my heart out at church. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful week.
