A little catch up...

Wow...my blog has been seriously neglected. I think way back when I promised myself that I would blog just as much once I had my 2nd child just like I had when I just had one. No one informed me that it is hard to do! haha I am blaming those people...certainly not myself! ;)

A little catch up:

Eli turned 3 (my goodness!!) in September and is definitely all boy! He loves all kinds of racecars - pretty much can tell you the difference in any of them whether it be a Porsche, Ferrari, Prototype or Nascar car. He watches Indy and Nascar on TV...it is always on DVR and is his number one request when asked what he wants to watch. He has been obsessed with Kyle Busch and Tony Stewart for a while but also loves Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth, David Ragan to name a few. He calls them by there entire names and is constantly "racing" somewhere. He has about 200 matchbox cars and carries them everywhere and sleeps with them every night. No more paci...no more blankie...just race cars!

He started preschool a couple months ago and loves it! He goes twice a week and is learning so much. He is still a HUGE talker...ha, wonder where he gets that from? He is sweet and loving always wanting to kiss and love on you. He is very strong willed and wants his way but we are worrking with him on this. He has the sweetest curls and the longest lashes...both literally melt my heart. He is my buddy and I am smitten still with my boy!

My sweet precious girl, Molly, turned 1 in June and is such a joy! She is our dare devil...not afraid of anything! She is walking around almost running and loves to laugh and squeal...mostly squeal! :) She loves to climb anything and can climb up the slide and up ladder to the playhouse. You have to really watch her! She isn't saying that much that you can understand but she "talks" all day. She can say: Mama, Dada, Eli, Hey baby and uh oh. She waves bye, claps her hands, pints to everything and loves to play peek a boo. Her most favorite thing to do is to look at herself in a mirror (we might be in trouble!) and play. She can be a bit of a diva and throw some temper tantrums but we just laugh. She is usually in a great mood and is so happy...makes me smile every time I look at her! <3

We moved to Loganville in August and are loving our new house. Lee is much closer to work which makes a difference in how much we see him. We are also super closet to Lee's dad/stepmom and my parents which have been a big help. We are still looking for a church home and hope to have a place soon.

Well, I have TONS to catch you up on but that's all for today. It feels good to be back. Missed this!

Wonderful Day

What a day!! Today I turned 34...not a big birthday...but an absolute wonderful one! It started off with Lee helping me get the kids up and going so that I could take a shower and get dressed by MYSELF!! You other moms know what a blessing that is! :) Then Amy J and Mary brought me breakfast and visited for a couple hours. I have been friends with Amy since the 8th grade and Mary since the 10th grade...nothing like old friends!
I then headed to the movies to see Eat, Pray, Love with Melinda. YES, you read that right...movies...in the middle of the day!! What a treat! Thanks to Mary who took both of my sweet kids to her house for the afternoon. Melinda and I started this tradition last year. We never get out to see movies so we give that to each other on our birthdays. Movie, popcorn, candy...it is SO nice!
I raced to Mary's to pick up the kids...then ran back home to get them packed for a night at Capt and Gigi's. Lee met us at home and we headed to Monroe...mom and dad kept the kids while we had dinner out. Steak and shrimp for me at Longhorns...YUM! Then my dad made his infamous blackberry cobbler with vanilla ice cream.

There were no big gifts (unless you count my used Treadmill that I NEEDED) and no big parties...just a wonderful sweet day with my best friends and family. It was just what I needed! Here are a couple pictures of my family...I want to remember being 34 and being a mama to these sweet babies. They are my life and I am so grateful that I was chosen to be their mom. I am extremely blessed and so thankful for my 34 years! Hears to the next 34!!

Hi There...

Yeah I know...been gone WAY too long!! So much has happened in our little life. First Eli broke my laptop and we have been without a computer until this past weekend. Yes, I have been living off my Blackberry...aka Crackberry. Plus I found out I was pregnant with our 2nd baby in October. We were surprised but so excited! So the last 10 months have been a bit crazy in these here parts! :)

I am going to try and catch up my blog over the next couple weeks. So if you already know all that has happened and don't want to read about it...you might want to check back in! I have missed you guys!!

So excited to be back! Here are pics of our two lil ones...Eli (22 months)and Molly (6 weeks).

Things I love...

about my son...there are so many!

  • his infectious laugh!

  • his ability to make everything wrong in my life melt away with one look...and those eyelashes.

  • his love for his daddy.

  • the way he picks up his food and puts it is in mouth...super cute! {can't describe it}

  • how sucks on his paci when he is really tired.

  • how he immediately lights up when he sees Capt or Gigi.

  • his super cute grunting noises he makes...he will wait to see if you will do it with him and then it never stops...or either he will start laughing!

  • how happy is his 99.9% of the time...I am so blessed!

  • his snaggle tooth grin.

  • his toes...oh his toes!

  • his one auburn curl that sometimes looks like a rat tail. Oh my! ;)

  • how he lifts one leg up when he is standing up reaching for the TV or his books.

  • his love of food.

  • how happy and content he is in the morning.

  • seeing him sleeping on his side or tummy...breathing sweetly. Makes me want to crawl in the crib with him!

....and most of all...his sweet kisses...and my new favorite that he started doing yesterday...a hug!

Eli's Likes and Dislikes

This post may be boring to most...but I really just want to document it for me and for him. This week is all about him! :)

  • Taking a bath or a shower - especially if you pour water over his head or he will go under and blow bubbles

  • Being outside watching things

  • Finding airplanes or helicopters in the sky

  • His paci and blanket at nap or bed time

  • Elmo

  • When Daddy comes home from work - he is becoming such a Daddy's boy

  • Mommy's laptop or Blackberry

  • Any kind of food but I would say Goldfish, tomatoes, yogurt and cheese are his favorites right now

  • His sippy cups filled with water {no juice}

  • Drinking ice water out of our glasses

  • His new fave: taking a drink of water and gurgling or just opening his mouth and letting it all fall out. Results in a VERY wet baby!


  • Being told no - playing w/ laptop, pulling books down off shelf, playing in dog's water bowl, etc
  • Getting his pajamas on at night after his bath

  • When the food on this tray is gone - he pitches a fit - you have to be fast.
  • Driving in the car for long periods of time.

  • Wiping his face after he eats - absolutely hates it!
