What has been going on..

Well, it has definitely been awhile since I have updated the blog but here I am and I am determined to give it another shot..We will see...

The Sayle family has been a bit busy the past few months. Robert Owen Sayle was born on April 13 at 7:09pm. He weighed in at 8lb 12oz and was 21 1/2 inches long. Despite him being such a big boy, labor and delivery was relatively easy.  He is blessed to share his birthdate with his cousin, Mary Ellis Sayle, who just turned 2! I have a feeling we will never forget her birthday! Life with two children has been interesting, Parker took a few weeks to adjust but is doing great now and really loves being a big brother. He helps with feedings and diaper changes. He loves taking the diapers to the diaper pail and telling me when Owen is crying. He also loves to help with Owen's bath time. It's really cute to see the two of them together, I can only imagine how it is going to be when they get older!

Owen is such a laid back baby; we are really so blessed. He only cries when he is really sleepy, has a dirty diaper or is hungry. At 9 weeks old, he started sleeping thru the night from 8pm - 630am. Anything is possible with sleep! He has been to the Smoky Mountains twice and to Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga when he was only a few weeks old. He is on the go! With a big brother who loves to be out and about, he really has no choice! He loves to look at mommy and daddy and smile! He is such a sweet boy!

Parker has been busy with his summer mother's day out program that he attends three days a week. He enjoys the artwork portion most of all and we have an art collection that is multiplying weekly! We attempted potty training a few weeks ago. He did really well for awhile but accident after accident; we have put that on the back burner. I cannot tell you how old it gets wiping up #1 and #2s off of the floor..He is so busy running around and being "involved" how would he have time to focus on when he needs to go potty?? Potty training is definitely the hardest thing we have tried to accomplish. I will take away that paci any day compared to potty training. Yuck

Wow Amber! You look great for just having a baby! I can't wait to meet him. It'll be so much fun having all four boys together!
