I have baby fever

Baby fever... I must be crazy!! What crazy person with a 4 month old and no sleep has baby fever???? I am just so crazy in love with Collins ( and Jack of course ). You would be proud of me - I left Collins in the church nursey for the first time today. Of course I left instructions that if he makes even a small wimper to call me out. So they did - church was basically getting out though. So of course I rushed back there to find him fast asleep looking as sweet as ever. They said he cried for a minute before he went to sleep so thats why they called me out... so glad they did. I know I am a little over protective. Whatever gene that God gives parents they enable them to leave their babies for extended periods of time, He did not give me. I am so glad we can afford for me to stay at home with my babies because I think I would just die if I had to leave them everyday!! Speaking of leaving them we have the Marriage Retreat coming up this weekend and I am so excited about it! I am pretty sure everybody and their cousin is coming so I know it will be tons of fun! Of course I am already having anxiety about leaving the boys. Jack is going to Paw Paws and Collins is staying with my mom.
On a funny note... I was told to "Chill Dude" by Jack today. Chill Dude... are you kidding me???? Where did you hear that I asked? Brendan quickly reminded me that he heard that from me. I guess I do tell him that frequently. I had to tell him that he should never tell Mommy to "chill dude".
Well better get to bed.
Oh ya... No need to call mom - My baby fever doesn't mean you are going to have another grand baby any time soon.

4 months

Well, I haven't been the best blogger lately! We have been so incredibly busy - with fun stuff!
Since I last blogged I have had one of the best weekends! Me and 7 of my girlfriends got together for a slumber party. It was SOOO much fun. We have all been friends for a lifetime and we have so much fun together. We ate yummy food, drink a little wine, and talked all night long about girl stuff! It made me appreciate my friends so much more and feel sorry for those that don't have great friendships because they are so important! Brendan kept the boys and did a great job!
Valentines day was wonderful as well. Brendan's parents kept the boys while Brendan and I went to a 5 course meal at Iz The Place. It was wonderful - although it took 3 hours! Thanks Grammy and Papa!
Other than that we have been so busy with small groups and play dates!! I have never been so busy in my entire life! It is certainly a fun kind of busy!
In Jack news - he caught his first fish! We got him a kiddie pole, so we took him down to paw paws farm. First cast out a 2.5 pound bass jumped on the line. It was so big Bren had to throw down the poll and pull in the string ( I don't think those polls are actually meant for catching fish ). Jack was so happy, jumping for joy!
In Collins news - he turned 4 months Sunday! He is getting so big and loves to watch Jack. He weighs 12.12lbs ( 10th %) He is 25.5 In. long ( 50th %) and H.C 16.75 In. (60th %)
He is so sweet and still likes to share his sweetness in the middle of the night! Yes, he is still getting up at night! I am very tired to say the least.
Here are a few 4 month pics:

Just some of the free things I got the month of January!!!
