TODAY STARTS A NEW DAY! The princess is upgrading her crown for the Queen headpiece! Nobody messes with the Queen because they know she means business, keeps order and wants her subjects to live happy lives.
Today mommy is taking back control of these little tantrums. By avoiding them all together. We will be using more one on one play time, soothing music and less of the TV being on, staying in your room more and ignoring when you drop your food on the ground. You are still too little for time out, but when we get to that point you better believe the Queen means business. You are a snuggly little gentleman and you are so good for a majority of the day, but we need to fine tune little man. I will be researching message boards, calling your Pediatrician for advice and nipping things in the bud. Expect lots of snuggles, kisses and some more hardcore Queen discipline. Love, Queen Cory
This is your new "home"...outside. The weather is about to be beautiful and you driving me crazy with your barking. LG tried to help me by giving me a "bark box" which did not affect you in the slightest. You bark when I pick W up, put him down, we get a snack, we get a drink, we breathe. So...I'm taking back control of my sanity and you are going outside to join the squirrels. I'll let you inside during nap time and after W goes to bed. Those times of day you are the same great baby dog I have always known and love. The rest of the day you act bat shit crazy. Scratch the door all you want babe, but the Queen means business. I am the MASTER of this domain! Love, Queen Cory
The rest of the list I will hold myself accountable for and will work on gaining order back in my kingdom. I'm considering (and being considered for) a contract position at Nissan where I will be able to work from home. To do that I need order in my home...routine, peace, happy subjects. All these shall be achieved ASAP! Stay tuned....I look forward to a long happy reign of Holder Haven.
And Chad...if you are reading this....if you don't get my Fall/Halloween decorations down from the storage bin holders I can't reach....I will command that College Football be banned from the kingdom on Saturdays!!! ;)
Long life the Queen!

Here is a picture of Del and the guys entertaining the crowd. Dierks Bentley and Vince Gill came out...gotta love Nashville. Always musicians joining in on sets.
I make a big deal about the Ryman. I love it and it is one of my favorite places in Nashville. You just feel the history there and the shows are always amazing. We will be hitting up Wilco this weekend actually. I enjoy everything about it...one of the greatest venues of all time.
Walker explored quite a bit, played with some stroller wheels, ate some grilled cheeserie under a shade tree and even saw a police horse up close and personal. He was not impressed...maybe because he didn't want the fuzz to know he was around stirring up trouble! ;)
It was a really fun day and I am excited about our other planned fall outings that will be going down soon.

I have gained 3 pounds so far...so not bad, not bad at all! I'm really going to try to keep it under control this time. As I type that statement I have Krispy Kreme donut sugar flakes on my shirt. Ha! I'm blaming that on getting blood drawn and feeling light headed. Uh huh...yeah that is it. So far Baby B is craving fruit smoothies and fried chicken, especially buffalo flavored fried chicken. I not as hungry as I was with W and that is huge difference in these pregnancies. When I am hungry...chicken time!
W is learning the way of the tantrum lately. Who would have known this kid would have such strong opinions?!? I mean...I am so passive and never have strong emotions. I would think my child would be the same. Ha Ha, yeah, right! The kid is a chip off the ol' block and wants what he wants. He really hates having boundaries. Again...I have no idea where this comes from.
W is also learning new words, but once he says them he is on to the next things. Word bank so far: Momma, Da Da, dog, book, car, toot, ball.
He is a big ball of love and I enjoy each and every day with him...even with the tantrums. Can't wait for him to show Baby B the ropes of how to be a good baby.
