I have made the switch to a private blog. There were several reasons for the change. I have been blogging for about 2 years now. In the beginning, I really think that only my mom and sister were reading. I don't have any of my family living in Tuscaloosa (other than family I married into) so the blog was a way for my family to see pictures from our daily lives. Well, the blog started to become more popular. We had about 100 readers on a day where I put up a new post. I know that is not a lot to many bloggers:) At first, I was flattered. I mean, we are not very interesting people. Then, it started to make me a little nervous. For example, I have a loyal reader from Alaska....logs on several times a day. I don't know anybody from Alaska. I don't like that any random stranger can have such an intimate glimpse into our lives. Also, many of my students commented that they were reading my blog. Now, you all know how much I love my students. However, some of the things that I write about (breastfeeding comes to mind) is really not appropriate for them to be reading about their teacher. Last night I was in bed and an overwhelming feeling came over me that I needed to make the blog private. I told my mom that I knew it was the Lord speaking to me. I actually got out of bed and changed it immediately. I love that we have so many readers, but the goal of the blog remains to create a scrapbook for my boys. I appreciate those of you who are still reading, and I hope that the logging in and using a password is not too much of a pain.

I am so behind with Joey's monthly post. Here are some facts about our five (almost 6) month old.
- He wears 9 month sized clothes and size 3 diapers.
- We tried breastmilk again this month, and it was once again a disaster.
- He is not yet able to sit up. He does the tripod sit where he balances himself with his hands until he tumbles.
- He has still never slept through the night. Actually, we are not even close:(
- He has not had any food yet. We are waiting until he is 6 months old.
- He is able to get up on he knees and hands in the crawling position, but he can't go anywhere once he gets in this position.
- He is a complete "mama's boy."
- He eats about 6 ounces ever 3 hours.
Look who wants in on the monthly picture! I love how Joey is looking at Andrew.

Easter was really fun this year since Andrew was old enough to participate. We also enjoyed spending Joey's first Easter with him. Andrew's class had a party at school. I thought the cupcakes above were really cute. They also had an egg hunt.He was really excited that I let him eat some of his Easter treats on the way home from school.On Saturday, our church sponsored a huge Easter celebration called Easterfest. There were activities for all ages. Andrew enjoyed the duck pond until he was told that he could not take a bath in it. I was not sure what this game was, but my boys played it.Andrew felt like the minister was waiting too long to say, "go." He enjoyed hunting the 14,000 eggs all by himself for a few seconds.Andrew also got his face painted for the first time ever. In honor of his beloved Clifford, he got a red paw print.Hi from Easterfest!Andrew danced to the praise music.He spotted some woof woofs, pitched a fit when we wouldn't let him touch them, and we all went home.The Easter Bunny visited our house on Sunday morning.Happy First Easter to our sweet little buddy!I like this picture because it shows the boys' outfits. The belt was my favorite part.Andrew played with one of his new games while Joey got a bottle before church.Here are my attempts to get a picture of both of my boys smiling together-FAIL!Distracted by woof woof on tv:I got Joey to smile!
