I made it!

It's Saturday morning, and I'm alive and well. I made it through the night! Woo hoo! When I talked to Channing on the phone last night, I told him I probably used more energy last night than we have in a week. I had one front porch light on, one back porch light on, a light on in the kitchen, Asher's heat up really high, and a night light on in the hall upstairs. And this was while I was sleeping, people!
I turned Asher's heat up really high because he likes to be hot when he sleeps. My thought was that if I turned the heat up really high, he would sleep all night and I wouldn't have to go upstairs in the middle of the night all by myself. You may be wondering if it worked....NO! The child (my precious child, btw) woke up every four hours! Can you believe that?! I mean, he doesn't wake up that much when my family's home. Oh well. It wasn't that bad since I had so many lights on.
Today is set to be a busy day. I have to work for Channing on Monday and Tuesday, then we're heading to my family's in Ozark on Wednesday so I have to get a lot done today. On my list...clean my mess of a house (and not just put things away, I need to DEEP CLEAN. Hey Lindsay, is Olivia available? ;) ) and find a specific pair of pjs for Asher.
My boys are having their pictures done by Amanda Traywick in a couple of weeks, and I am beside myself with excitement! If you have not ever visited her website, you must do so. I have a link to her blog on my page...Precious Memories. She is an artist! I cannot wait to see what she does with my boys...and their cousin, Mary Ryan.
We have decided to do the pictures in their jammies. I found jammies for Mary Ryan and Tristan at Pottery Barn. We have chosen their solid red button up flannel pajamas, and they're really cute and classic.
Now I need to find something for Asher that's pretty solid in color and has no feeties. Do you know how hard it is to find jammies for babies without feeties?! The most frustrating thing is that I found a super cute pair (two actually) online but they don't have his size. And because the brand that I found is something only sold in boutiques and avails their website only to sellers, I can't order directly from the company that makes them. Frustrating! So now I have to spend the better part of the morning calling all the boutiques in Birmingham and Montgomery trying to find these pajamas or some that will work.
If any of you know where I can find Little English crisp white smocked button up Christmas pajamas, please let me know! This is what they look like:
If I can't find these pajamas, the next thing I'm looking for is something like this pair, something white with red trim; however, I don't want the little logo on it:I LOVE this pair from Pottery Barn Kids, but it doesn't come in red trim. If it did, it would be perfect!
If any of you know of anything out there like this that I can get pronto, please let me know!
Oh, and are the shopping queen. Would you mind listing every boutique in B'ham that you know of. I've got a few, but I know there are a lot more. I'm going to keep my phone busy this morning!
Oh, and my hubby comes home tonight! Praise the Lord!!!

I've got a pair of red pj's with white trim from Baby Gap. They are size 6-12 months but I can't remember if they are showing signs of wear or not. Baby Gap carries them every year at Christmas though. I saw them there the other day but didn't look at what sizes they had. I can't wait to see the pictures! I'm sure they are going to be beautiful! All Amanda's pictures are gorgeous and with your boys, I'm sure they will be extra gorgeous!
