So What Wednesday!

So What Wednesday

So What! If....
  • My son is tiny and everyone thinks he is 2 months younger than he is....tiny is adorable too! 
  • I got up, got ready then got back into bed to nurse Max this morning.  The weather was so yucky this morning when I let the pups out that it totally made me want to get cozy again! 
  • I could {and often do} watch videos of Max laughing way too many times a day.  He is just too cute!  
  • I ate KFC last night for dinner.'s been years...but that crispy fried mess was really yummy :)  
  • {nice follow-up to the KFC announcement} I am running a 5K this weekend and I am so not ready for it!  Good thing it's a Run or Dye race, because they are a lot more laid back & way less difficult! 
  • I want to play this commercial every Wednesday morning.  It's hilarious!

Make it a great day friends!!

High Five for Friday {3}


It's finally Friday! 

This last week has been total vacation hangover!  We were gone all last week with my family at St. Simons Island and now back to reality this week.  Bleh.  Can't we just live at the beach forever?  Alas, real world called and back we went.  At least I have beautiful pictures to look back on.... 
 {1} Our crazy, HUGE family!!  Only missing one brother-in-law.  Yes, that is all my siblings and their kiddos with our parents.  I love it!!

{2} My bug, he is so sweet.  How did I live before him?  He is my heart.  

{3} Boys and their boys.  This is one of my brothers, who had a son just 30 hours before Max was the same hospital!  How fun is that?!  These two are going to be good buddies, just like their daddy's.
{4} This man.  He is so patient, forgiving, kind, and funny.  We have been through a lot....still in a lot....and I look forward to growing old with him and raising a few more kiddos.  Also glad he loves the beach as much as I do, otherwise we'd be in trouble!

{5} I'm sorry...does it get much cuter?!  He melts me!

Happy 4th of July!

We had a pretty uneventful 4th, because it would not stop raining.  Like, ever.  At least we got to spend a lot of time with family, and most importantly, I had 4 straight days with my mini boo Max.  What could be better?! 
This was our cute little family on Max's first 4th of July.  No fireworks for us, thanks to the rain!  Almost all of Atlanta cancelled their shows, so hopefully we will find another one in the coming weeks so Max can experience it!

Here are all of the boy cousins under a year in our family.  From L-R, Asher 6.5mo, Judson 2wks, Max 6.5mo, Benjamin 3.5mo.  These four are going to be T-R-O-U-B-L-E when they can walk and talk.  I cannot wait to watch them grow up together!  

Little man crossed the twenty-nine week threshold.  Where does time go?!  Oh, and he started eating puffs, which sometimes make him look like he has fake teeth in ;)

We spent a lot of time doing this; I love my little snuggles with my tiny guy!  Being his momma is my favorite thing in the whole world....I don't deserve it.  So blessed!

Max man also started sitting straight up over the weekend (for longer than 1 second!)!  No more lean, and our time up is increasing daily.  Yay!  Proud momma! 

And lastly, Max made this noise all weekend long, which pretty much sounds like he is trying to make a fart noise.  You could say he is obsessed with this sound!  All boy already, I suppose :)

That just about wraps up our weekend... Hope you all enjoyed some downtime with family and friends!

Make it a great day!

Happy Birthday, Daddy!!!

Happy Birthday to the greatest father a girl could hope for!  

A man who loves to travel and explore with his family.  Never afraid of a new adventure on the road or in everyday life.  Always looking ahead at the great things to come and reminding those around him that no matter what, God is in control.

A man who always held his kiddos tight, but knew when it was time to let go.   Wise beyond measure, he always has the right thing to say, even if you don't want to hear it... Digging into God's word, this man is filled with the knowledge only the Lord can bestow and uses it to better his life, and the lives of those around him. 

A man who loves his children and cares deeply for their well-being in life, even as adults.  Selflessly giving of his time and energy to care for his family, and always finding time to assist others in need, regardless of whether he knows them or not.    

And finally, a man who loves my mother with all of his heart, showing each of his children and their spouses what a real, healthy marriage should look like.  Loving her was one of the best thing he did for us, as it set us up to know how to love and care for others. 

Happy Birthday, Daddy!! 

No matter how old I get, I will always be your little girl, and will always look up to the man you are.  Thanks for being you!

Love you!!!
