While we were on vacation to visit our family, the boys trained Miss M to answer to the name "Baby Ironman".  Now those of you that know Miss M know she looks nothing like anything that could be called Ironman. Maybe if they had called her "Baby Stay-Puffed Marshmallow Guy" that would have been a little more accurate. ;)  It's still hilarious though!  Also C kept trying to "hold" the baby while they were playing on our bed in the hotel room...she weighs 25 pounds and he weighs 33 pounds, so you can guess how well that worked.  He was saying things like "Get back here you big baby!" It was pretty funny. :)

The first night of our vacation was awful, Miss M kept waking up and crying LOUDLY for no apparent reason, our hotel room was warmer than any of us would have liked so nobody was sleeping well.  Oh and she also cried for a good part of the ride down there...she'd purposely throw stuff and then be mad when we didn't get it for her.  Finally in the middle of the night I just picked her up out of her crib and set her on the floor by me so I could calm her when she cried...she was very confused but she did go to sleep. Then at like 6:30 a.m. I woke up and peeked over at her...and she handed me my shoe. Thank you baby!  I picked her up and held her in my arms and within 30 seconds flat she was asleep and slept for another 45 minutes. Of course this entire time I had to pee like crazy, so no additional sleep was had by me!

The kids really liked seeing all of our family, I think Miss M really just loves having all the attention and 10 different people who are just dying to hold her.  Of course Granna is her favorite though. :)  We had a good time. The second night in the hotel was much better, and the ride home was pretty good too. Also we got to eat at Chik-fil-a. We don't have one in our city so it's a treat when we can eat there. There was no room in the restaurant, so we just sat on the sidewalk and had a pic-nic!  It was a little warm but at least we were in the shade.  Can I just say that finding a table for more than 4 people is kind of a challenge? What are these restraunts thinking!?  I feel bad for those people that have like 10 kids. They probably just never go out to eat I guess.  The little boys are small enough that all 6 of us can squeeze into a booth meant for 4 people but once they are teenagers there is no way that's gonna happen.

I guess that's it. I do have something else I want to say but I guess it can wait. :)
