Hello Again!

Hi. My name is Becky. Sorry it's been awhile since I've last posted anything. Okay, maybe awhile doesn't quite fit . . . how about MONTHS since I've done anything with our blog. I feel like we have been going 100 mph, and we haven't slowed down. Maybe I can catch everyone up with our comings and goings:

~ BECKY ~
I started teaching school since our last post, and I blame my crazy schedule for my blogging shortfalls. It's been a great year so far, and I'm grateful to have an amazing woman watching and loving my boys while I'm at work. Needless to say, by the time I lay down with Reed at 8:30 to read a couple of books and put him to bed, I am VERY ready for bed too. So yes, I have been choosing to sleep instead of update our blog.
~ BRETT ~
I am proud to say I am now married to the general contractor of Six Point Construction. For the past couple of months Brett has been studying for the two tests he needed to take to get his contractor's license. After many long nights of studying, Brett passed both tests!! I am very proud of him. He is still working for Sierra Homes and loving it, but he just wanted to get his own license now so he could go out on his own sometime in the future. Brett is pretty excited for the next few months, because he has a some big hunts coming up. Normally I love this time of year, but since I married a hunter, I've decided the fall isn't my favorite anymore.
~ REED ~
Well my two-year-old almost three-year-old had definately been keeping us busy. He is looking forward to Halloween, and I'm pretty sure he will be the cutest pirate I've ever seen. I let him pick out his costume on the internet the other day, and out of the monkey, elephant, and dragon Reed chose the pirate. As for the potty-training adventure, we haven't made much progress (unless you call pooping in the garbage can progress). My goal is to hopefully have Reed potty-trained by the time he turns 3 in January. Wish us luck!!
~ JETT ~
Jett is 6 months old now and he is growing like a weed! The last time I took him into the doctor for his check-up, Jett weighed just under 20 pounds. This past month we started feeding Jett solid foods and he's LOVED everything he's tried so far (yellow and orange vegetables). I've been hesitant to give Jett green beans and peas, because whenever I tried to feed those to Reed, I usually ended up wearing them instead of him eating them. Reed hated the green veggies. We have been so lucky to have a wonderful baby like Jett. Compared to Reed at his age, Jett is an angel!! He never cries, is always happy, puts himself to sleep, takes 3 good naps, and can get to where he wants to go by rolling there. We love this little guy so much! Brett has been very involved with Jett compared to what it was like with Reed, because it's so easy to enjoy a happy baby. We are not saying we don't love Reed. It's just that after you raise a baby with acid reflux, anything else seems like a piece of cake.

The only two times that Jett has really cried was when I dropped the remote on his head (it was a accident), and when his elbow dislocated two weeks ago. I'm not quite sure how it happened because I was just holding him in a blanket while we were sitting on the couch. It was while I was standing up when Jett started crying. I knew something was wrong because he was crying. Jett never cries. I took him into the doctor not knowing what was wrong with him. On our way Jett stopped crying, and I noticed his left arm was pinned inbetween his body and the carseat. He was moving his right arm a lot, but not his left one. When we got in to see the doctor, I told him I thought his shoulder or elbow dislocated (I've heard about that happening before). The doctor checked him out and agreed that it was his elbow. As I cried in the waiting room (I didn't dare watch), I heard Jett screaming as the doctor put his elbow back in place. It was one of the least favorite moments of my life. After his elbow went back into place, Jett was smiling and playing like nothing ever happened. Let's just say I hope that never happens AGAIN!!

There's an update on all of us. Sorry about the lack of posts. Hopefully things slow down a little bit so I can keep up with our blog. Even though I may not update my blog, I sure have enjoyed reading everyone else's. Thanks to all of you for being a better blogger than I am!!
