How does your Garden Grow?

We finally got our garden planted last week. We planted tomatoes and bell pepper plants. We used seeds for the beans, carrots, green onions, cilantro, and lettuce. I can't wait to be able to use what we grow, especially the tomatoes. The kids check the garden everyday and see if the little plants are growing. So far the only thing we have seen (from the seeds we planted) is lettuce.

Night Terrors

The past several nights O-Dog has been suffering from night terrors. I remember Big D having them around this same age so I knew what it was, but it doesn't make it any easier.

He wakes up crying and he is usually standing next to his bed or sitting up. When I approach him he tries to get away from me and looks at me like I have bugs crawling on my face or like he is looking right through me. I can feel his little heart beating out of his chest. The whole time he is crying, it is not like a little owiee cry, it is a terrified cry. It takes him a while to calm down and by then it has woken up Big D too. Last night when it happened Ryan wasn't home and he had the worst one so far. Big D was really worried about him and was nearly in tears about it all. If you know Big D at all, you know that he is very sensitive to others feelings.(at times)

Last night it was a total of 3 times. Between his night terrors and Miss P's nightly cry when she has to go potty, I am drained. I need a nap.

I don't know how many more nights of this I can handle.

Of course he remembers nothing of it all, so the next morning when I ask him why he was crying he says, "I wasn't crying."

I am tempted to video him, just so I have the proof.

Game Face

Big D's first game of the season was Saturday and it was a chilly one. We froze our buns off!
He did such a great job!

hey, brother!

I had my ultrasound today, and found out that we will be adding a baby brother to the Lewis crew.
As most people know I was hoping for a girl, a sister for Miss P. I am now wrapping my mind around the idea of another boy. Ryan is thrilled with the thought of his own four-some for golf.
I am getting used to it. It gets easier when I look at his sweet little profile and imagine holding him in my arms.
Now comes the difficult task of choosing a name!
