My Birthday Baby

Two years ago you entered our lives & nothing has been the same since. You are our little ham. Always making us laugh. Always wanting to be in the middle of everything. Always full of love, cuddles & kisses. Early this morning I took photos of you just being you in our front yard. You are so funny & giggly. And you absolutely LOVE your lovey. This little bunny goes everywhere with you. During your well check appointment today you held tight to it for the entire time. It calmed you & kept you from crying, even during your shots. And during your check up we found out you have gained a little weight. You are now 24 pounds 15 oz (15%) & you are 34.25" (40%). You have definitely entered the terrible twos. You love to say no & you already throw temper tantrums. But for the most part you remain a very happy child. And as much as you smile this is your signature face. Holding bunny with the cutest little smirk. We love that face. And we also love watching you sleep which is what you were doing at 9:50am. The exact time you were born. Peacefully sleeping in your car seat. I can't wait to see what this year brings. Your personality will continue to grow. You will make us laugh & smile all the time & I'm sure you will push our buttons but we love you just the same. Happy Birthday Baby Boy!


Sneak Peek

If you head over to Erin's blog you can see a glimpse of our very 1st professional photo shoot. We had so much fun even if it took a little while to rally the boys. And you won't be able to tell but Joey was by far the most difficult to convince to have his photo taken.

And remember I'm not just big I'm actually 12 weeks pregnant in this photo :-) Just happen to be growing a lot sooner this time.


10 on Tuesday

1. Jimmy is still very much enjoying his vacuum cleaner that he received for Christmas. It never fails that when we vacuum he runs over, grabs his & joins right in. 2. Rick has been traveling a lot for work lately & because of this I have learned that I would hate to be a single mom. We miss Rick & need him here & can't wait for the traveling to relax a little.

3. Joey is still trying to convince us that he is ready to give up his naps but as you can see he clearly isn't. 4. I am enrolled in an online photography course that I'm really enjoying. I get to take lots of photos but it takes up most of my free time so I haven't been taking as many photos of my own kids. I'm hoping future assignments will have me taking more photos of the boys though because my camera misses them.

5. Totally random but worth noting. Johnnie is finally starting to try more foods while at school. He doesn't always like it but it is nice that he is more willing to at least try some new food.

6. Luckily the weather on the weekend has been nice so the boys have been enjoying being thrown around the trampoline by daddy. We just had our 1st professional photo shoot with a great photographer who lives in Alabama. As soon as a sneak peak is available I will share the link to check it out.
