Teething Bites

Grady has cut his two bottom teeth and let me tell ya it hasn't been easy. Poor guy has fussed and fussed and momma does not know what to do! Tylenol, oragel, teething rings, you name it we've done it. Briggs did not have this problem at all so it is kind of new to me.

We haven't been up to much lately just hanging out at the casa and working my faithful one day a week. I am loving the fall air though. It feels like I am going to school! Does anyone else feel that way? I can't wait for actual Fall to get here, it is my favorite season, but I think I say that for every season when the seasons change.

There won't be any pics on this post because I have seemed to misplaced (like my choice of words here?) my camera. I would like to blame it on my toddler but I REALLY don't think he did it this time. That's a first!

Well if anyone has any tips on teething PLEASE let me know!

In the words of Lightning McQueen!
We had Briggs' party yesterday and it was Cars theme. We rented a bouncy house, had cake and ice cream and basically melted outside in the heat! Briggs hated the bouncy house but as for me I am really sore from jumping and climbing!
He had a good birthday and got a bunch of cool gifts. We got him a four wheeler for his actual birthday and he is a machine on that thing!
Here are some pics from the party.

This is the day my life began as a mother. 2 years ago at 3:40 a.m. Briggs Cowan was born. He has changed our lives and he changes everyones lives he meets. He is such a sweet soul and a playful little boy. His smile will melt your heart and his laugh brings so much joy. He is a great big brother and Grady already loves watching him.

Happy 2nd Birthday big guy!
