Juice, Pillows & A Cozy Blanket

It's Friday and I am so pumped. I get to sleep in tomorrow (woo hoo), cheer on my Razorbacks (to the best of my ability) and spend extra time with my little family. Here's hoping it's a good weekend.
I gave Campbell some juice for the very first time this afternoon. The poor little guy has always had digestive/tummy problems and juice is supposed to help get things on track....if you know what I'm sayin'. This child has refused a bottle for about 6 weeks now. Actually, I probably shouldn't say that. He refused it for a few days so I gave up and haven't even tried giving him one for 6 or 7 weeks. He thought this juice was pretty yummy though. I diluted it with water quite a bit. I never really imagined I would give my baby juice but if it helps his tummy feel better then I'm all about it. This may be his new favorite part about his afternoons! Plus he likes to hold his bottle like a big boy and he looks pretty adorable doing it!
Last Monday I took the swaddle and Rock N Play away from Campbell for his naps and it has been a nap nightmare around here for the last 11 days. Thirty minutes was all I could get out of him--twice a day--and he has been so tired and fussy. I tried all my tricks and nothing I could do would work. Today I folded up a blanket to make a "pillow" for him and also covered him with a heavy blanket. You know, all the things you aren't supposed to do. My little peanut has snoozed hard for one hour and forty five minutes twice today. And that, my friends, is what I will be doing for his naps from here on out. I mean, I can't really blame Campbell. I prefer a comfy pillow and a nice blanket while I sleep too.
My Mom, Grammy and Grace came up on Thursday night. Gracie is going to stay with us for a week or so and the girls couldn't be more thrilled about it. I thought they were going to pee their pants when they saw each other for the first time in almost 3 weeks. They're the three best friends that anyone could have....
