This is 2 weeks plus a weekend review. Two weeks ago, Robbie was out of town on business during the week. It was the longest time so far that I had both kids on my own. We survived. (With some afternoon/evening baby sitting help from Mimi.) How some moms do this every week, I do not know. They have my utmost respect! (I am the worst speller in the world. I kept spelling utmost with a p [as in upmost] and couldn't figure out why spell checker kept telling me the word was misspelled.)
Jake was a captain in that week's football game. So proud of him & the team. They came from behind to win the game. Rob was still out of town and was actually on a train during the game. So I was trying to watch the game, handle Hollon and text him everything that was happening. It was such a good game, I hate he missed it.
Rob was still out of town that weekend, so Friday night, we had a movie night. Jake got to pick everything we watched and then we all fell asleep upstairs. And Jake pulled his own tooth out!
Saturday was my grandmother's (Maw-Maw) birthday. This is my last grandparent living and she is such a very special woman. Maw-Maw lived just right around the corner from us growing up, so I basically saw her every week for 18 years. I have so many wonderful memories of playing with my cousins at her house. They threw her a birthday party at the nursing home she lives in and I was glad the kids & I were able to come for it.

Later that afternoon, the kids & I headed back to Birmingham. Hollon was screaming, so when I stopped to get gas, I fed her a squeeze packet of baby food. She had eaten everything from the packet, so I let her hold the empty container the rest of the ride back. I should have known something was up she was so quiet. We make it back to Birmingham and as I go to get her out, evidently, was there just enough left over that she had squeezed it all over her & the carseat.
Thankfully Dad came home on Sunday!

Tuesday was Mimi's birthday and Wednesday was Dad's birthday.

I used to always take a picture of Jake before daycare. For some reason I never do with Hollon. I guess because I take so many other random pictures of her, I never think to do it before school.
|Happy Friday! I'm about to go to Nana & Gran's for the weekend!|
