so much to say

I know it's been forever, but I'm finally getting a moment to update the blog.  Having 2 little boys takes up pretty much every bit of my time.  I guess the main problem is that Andrew hadn't been sleeping very well at night, so as soon as we got both of them in the bed, I rushed off to sleep myself.  But we've hopefully gotten into a better rhythm, so here is your long-awaited update.  (I know you've all just been on pins and needles waiting!)We've been pretty busy actually, considering how young Andrew is, but he's a great traveler and I think enjoys being out and about just like his brother.  We went to Kentucky to visit with David's family who hadn't been able to see Andrew yet.  Here are some pictures from that trip.

This is David's dad's side--Pop and Gaggie, as we call them.
And this is David's mom's mother, Memaw.
We also took Andrew to church for the first time on the 10th.  I was mostly excited because it was my first opportunity to dress the boys in cute little matching outfits.  Thank you to my mom for buying them their sweet little outfits--they looked great.

Here we are about to leave for church.  Apparently Bogie wanted in on the family photo, too!
This is the whole crew (my side and David's) out to eat after church.
We've also made a few trips to Lewisburg to hang out with my family, but for some reason I don't have any pictures of that.  But I'll leave you with some of my favorite pictures from the last few weeks.  
The first one is Campbell doing one of his favorite things--swiping Andrew's pacifiers.  Of course, Andrew doesn't care because he seems to pretty much hate all pacifiers.  I've tried 5 different kinds now, all of which seem to make him more mad when he's crying instead of soothe him.  The bad thing is that the only way to really calm him down is to nurse him, hence the sleepless nights.  But like I said, he's doing better now.
And this last one is my sweet little Andrew learning to smile.  He's flashed a few really good ones, but of course not when I've got the camera ready.  But I love this one anyway.  His first one was on Valentine's Day--what a great gift for Mommy!  And Daddy was home to see it, too. Thanks for checking in on us.  I'll try to do a better job of updating, but I make no promises. :)
