Baby Drew - 5 Months

Little Man,

You are 5 months old and just as cute as can be.  You are so squishy and cuddly and I just love snuggling with you early in the morning. 

You are such a happy little guy and always grinning and laughing at us. 

You love your big sister so much and let her love all over you.  She is always hugging and kissing you and call you "handsome."  It is the sweetest thing. 


You are starting to roll over and still hate tummy time.  You are grabbing at everything in front of you and pulling things to your mouth.  You started loving your Sophie and your owl.  You love being sang to and love when I play pat-a-cake with you. 


You also love your feet and put them in your mouth any chance you get. 

The only time you get fussy and cry is when you are tired and ready to go to sleep.  You love your sleep just like your sister.  You still LOVE your thumb and I still think its the cutest thing ever. 

We love you little guy, and love how perfect you fit into our family.

Mothers Day 2015

I had such a great Mothers Day.  Andrew really made it special.  That morning Lo and him made me a delicious breakfast of strawberry pancakes and cream cheese syrup.  It was so good!  Lo was so sweet all day and kept saying "Happy Mothers Day!"

This little guy decided to be a little turkey and fight sleep all day.  Really I think he just wanted my undivided attention to remind me that it was indeed Mothers Day. :)

We had my parents and my brother Cody over for dinner.  Andrew made ribs and pork and then had Lo help him make a cake.  It was yummy! 

After dinner, Lo and I painted our toenails :)

It was a great day, spent with my very favorite people. 

And never will a day go by that I don't feel so very blessed to be able to be a mommy to these two amazing little human beings.  So thankful God chose me to be their mom!

Arkansas Road Trip

Andrew had a bike race in Arkansas over the weekend, so we decided to make a family trip out of it and head on a little road trip. 

We left Friday morning and drove to a really neat safari/petting zoo in Gentry Arkansas.  It had some great animals!  Lo loved it! 


Then we headed to Little Rock.  Lo took a nap in the car and little man did so well and didn't make a peep.  Lo is so funny with her naps.  We said, "Lo time to take a nap in the car."  She said, "ok" and went right to sleep. 

Once we got to Little Rock, we headed out to eat dinner and met up with Andrew's Aunt Peggy.  We had a great time walking around and talking with her. 

Saturday, Andrew had a bike race in the afternoon.  We went to the Farmers Market in the am and then Lo, Drew, and I walked around a bit before Andrew's race.  It luckily went right by our hotel, so we sat outside and watched him race for a bit, before heading up to the room so they could nap. 

"Mommy take a pic of my boo-boo..."  And this is the face she give me...

Five seconds later she smiles for another pic.  HAHA!

That evening we went to dinner and then just hung out in the room.  It was nice and relaxing.  I walk out of the bathroom and see Lo laying by Drew holding his hand.  So sweet!

Sunday, the kids and I walked to Andrew's race a mile away and pretty much feared for our lives on the walk over, ha, but we made it!

Andrew raced in the morning and probably would have won the race, but he decided to wreck his bike instead of winning the race someone hit his back wheel on the last turn causing him to wreck.  Thankfully he was just a little beat up and not hurt too bad.   

We then headed home, stopped a couple times to eat and feed the baby, and made it home early evening.  The kids were sooo good the entire trip.  Drew didn't make a peep going there or coming back and he slept 11-12 hours both nights.  Remind me again where we got this angel baby?!  Lo was great too!  We had such a great time cheering on daddy and hanging out as a family!
