Happy Valentine's Day!

Well can you believe it's already February!?! Each year time flys so fast.
McCoy is 3 months now. He had a little cold so we went to the doctor and he weighs 13lbs. He is getting so big and wants to either sit up or stand up. He has the funniest laugh. It's more of a grunt than a giggle but it sure makes us smile. He has the cutest dipoles when he gives us a big grin. He has been sleeping through the night since 2 months so Blake and I are thrilled to get some sleep! He goes to bed around 9 or 10 and wakes up at 6 or 7. Everyone has asked us how we got him to do that and I think the number thing is that he has never slept with us, EVER! And we kept him on a feeding schedule. I'm no longer breastfeeding anymore... sigh of relief alittle just because I didn't have anytime and I wasn't producing enough for McCoy anyways. I suggest to everyone that if and when you decide to dry up your milk supply to do it slowly. I would go every 4 hours a day, 5 hours a days, 7 hours a day, etc. and then I would pump once in the morning and once right before bed, then 1 time a day. Doing it this way was much nicer because only the first day hurt and that was it! DON'T QUIT COLD TURKEY! And I didn't smell like cabbage=)
Blake has gotten an invite interview to every school he has applied for! So proud of him! In a couple of weeks he will be going to the U and we are crossing our fingers that he gets accepted because it's the cheapest school.
School is going good for both us. We are just soooo busy! I don't have class on Fridays so I get to spend all day with McCoy and I think he enjoys having his momma all to himself.
Rex is still with us but he can't remember anything, like he thinks he got into a car accident. He is way past all the expectations about how long he had left. Pretty sad but he got a pretty neat blessing from a Seventy. My mom is an amazing woman to stay by his side day and night with him.
