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!

Baby Drew - 4 Months

Little Man,

You are 4 months old and you are just the sweetest thing ever.  You adore your big sister and she adores you!  Its so sweet to watch the two of you together.  I can't believe I was so worried about how she would respond to you when you were born.  She just loves you so very much!

You love to sit and stare at me and just coo away.  You are a pretty chilled out baby and go with the flow.  You also recently found your thumb and have become quite the thumb sucker.  I think it is the cutest thing ever and definitely is one of the reasons you are such an awesome sleeper!

You are the best sleeper at night. You will eat and then when you are done, you put your thumb in your mouth and go to sleep...and sleep for 11 hours straight!  We still aren't quite sure how we got so lucky and where you came from, but we sure feel blessed! 

You are so ticklish and laugh and giggle a lot when we play with you. 

You have done so well with the transition of me going back to work and are taking a bottle so good during the day.  You still like your binky and take it well for naps.  You love to be held and are pretty content as long as you can see one of us. 

You do have a temper if you are overtired...

But most of the time you are as chilled out as can be.  You are my sweet little cuddle bug.  We just love you so much sweet boy!
