Ahhhh, back to normal :)

Normal, in so many ways!!

Boobs, check!

Family all here, check!!

Hampton's feet, check!!!

Brandon and I had an amazing weekend. Yes, we would have done a few things differently. Yes, I already want to go back. And we'll definitely be doing it again!!

The boys seemed to have fun and didn't mind much that we were even gone! They did say how much they missed us though, so sweet! I would have been sad otherwise!

Hampton's feet are back to almost normal! He is wearing shoes again, running around mostly, like nothing was ever wrong. I still have to keep a bandaid and a little neosporin on the heel to keep it covered. But he's bathing again in the tub and healing every day!! He looks like he is healing perfectly. And his 15 month checkup is tomorrow. I know he is growing beautifully! :)

So it took one complete week for my boobs to go from nursing, to engorged, to finally normal!!! I'm so proud of my little man. He did so amazing. It was such a tough transition for him, and now we're snuggling like those things never produced milk once before. Thank goodness!! So proud of me too! 14 and a half months breastfeeding Jackson, 15 months breastfed Hampton! Go mama! ;)

So enough rambling and on to some pictures because it's been too long!!!!!!!!

First day down, so happy!!

Brandon on the beach!

4 years M & B

Occasionally the sun came out.. it was off and on, regardless it was never too cold or too ugly,


Playing putt putt!

I was giggly, and of course Brandon spanked me, lol!

Love my husband.

Saturday on the beach, before all the rain!

Shopping while it was raining. Love my new sticker for the suburban!!!!!

Getting ready, listening to the radio, drinks.. good times :)

Hehe :) Being silly

And apparently Brandon thought we needed a serious picture!

Out to eat! Place we ate after we got married, 4 years ago!

Such an old man ;) Passed out!!

Nasty disgusting creatures and too much milk!!

Mice in April, wth? We had no mice issues all winter and then bam! Ugh, they're disgusting. I probably have a trap in every freaking corner and still nothing. We even have a cat! We're not even cat people but living in the country it's ants and mice as soon as it gets hot and the farmers start working in the fields.

Damn the mice and damn my boobs. They still hurt like hell. I called the doctor this morning and I'm waiting for him to call me back. I hope they have some kind of miracle shot, lol!

I've been eating straight sage. Basically taking shots of it about every hour or so. I'm taking sudafed every 3 hours. And eating peppermints nonstop. Oh and cabbage leaves to the boobs. All cold compress and no heat. Not even taking hot showers. I can't believe how awesome my body is at producing milk! Go me :) But they can stop now please!! Hamp has gone a complete 72 hours plus without. Yay!! So glad we're done. Now my body needs to get the memo!

Vacation Friday!!!! And I can not wait. Boobs hurting or not, me and hubby are going to have a kick ass time!!!

Random update

I'm weaning Hampton and it is HELL. My boobs hurt, I want to cut them off and grow a new pair. He's getting more use to the fact, but at night time he eventually freaks. We've just been having to put him in his crib.. ahhh sad stuff!! :(

Please boobs, hurry and get better, like tomorrow, or now.

Hamp's feet are healing. Bless him, that tough child cut his feet all up on some metal in our barn. Something I never thought would happen. I knew it could, but it's just something that just doesn't happen, but did. He got his stitches out today.

In the midst of all this.. Mine and Brandon's 4 year anniversary is this Sunday. We're going to the beach all this weekend, alone! And God am I goin to miss my kids!!!! But it will be much needed for both me and Brandon. And I know our boys will be well taken care of. We have family all around that is coming together to watch them. Another reason for the whole abrupt weaning and my boobs have only days to get themselves back to normal!! Darnit I have faith they will!! If not I'll be going to see my Doctor tomorrow or Wednesday.

I hate I've been so slack with blogging. It's harder than I ever imagined having three boys. Of course I would never change it for anything though! I love them!!

And dang I need to get back on here and update some of my pictures. My profile picture doesn't even look like me anymore, lol!!
