36 Week Highlights

36 Week Highlights

So much growing and learning this week! More “baby tricks” and laughs together.

On Monday, I was meeting some friends for dinner and Tyler was tied up with the air conditioner repairmen…so mom came over to occupy Remi until bedtime so I could still go to dinner. Remington looks SO long here. She’s been on the taller side, but seeing all 28 inches stretched out, she looks so big!

We are loving our cute clothes from RicRac & Ruffles big Memorial Day sale. We had this one monogrammed. The red knees are permanent from her crawling everywhere all the time.

I texted this picture to a couple people saying “Tonight, dinner won.” SO messy. Love it so much.

We’ve officially outgrown the 6 month sleepers.  Tall girl.

We went to the waterpark over the weekend. She enjoyed it even more this time. She also took a killer nap with Gigi while mama floated the lazy river alone.

And she looked so stinking cute in her swim suit! ha!

We spent Wednesday evening at the nursing home for their Father’s Day dinner.  Sweet smiles from everyone.

And Remi LOVED the attention from the older girls.

Thursday she had a luau at school. She looked adorable when we left….

But sister wasn’t feeling her portrait at school.

She’s so mobile! Guess I have to baby proof now.  She climbed up on her drum trying to get to the drum sticks.  We only use those when we play together and she wanted them.

Friday evening we had some family over for a cookout. We took her play sink and filled it with water for a little water play. She LOVED splashing and making a mess.

She may not look like it here, but she loved playing with Heather!

Such a fun week together!


My 30th Birthday (the calm before the storm)

My 30th Birthday (the calm before the storm)

I’ll be really honest- I tried to make my own birthday plans this year. I’m big on birthdays, and it seems like plans get thrown together at the last minute and I didn’t want that. But then nothing came together.  Tried to get friends together for a fun day- but the time/date didn’t work.  Tried to plan a spa day, but my masseuse cancelled at the last minute. So I kind of had no plans, which was a bit disappointing.

Mom took me shopping Saturday and tried to brighten my day, but I was in a bit of a cranky mood.  Tyler and I were going out to eat that night, so I was looking forward to that. We left Remi at home with Gigi and headed out.

I asked for a progressive dinner, so we started at Rolandos. We had guacamole and margarita, but I felt like he was oddly rushing me.  We weren’t in a hurry…what was his deal?

Well, his deal was that our next stop was my surprise party! A room full of friends and family were waiting on us and they got me good! I cried happy tears.

Amber had come in from Memphis just for this (so sneaky! She told me she had a training in NWA when we had lunch earlier that day. I thought she was headed back to Memphis).

Remi was supposed to be home with Gigi…but she was there too!

We had a fun dinner and then delish cake!

We got to meet sweet Ella- our friend’s baby. But they moved to Tulsa right after she was born.

I call this the calm before the storm because on Monday, all hell broke lose. On my actual birthday, I woke up at 1 a.m. nauseous. I got sick later and was sick ALL day. Tyler was sick too, and it turns out we all got it from the party. I don’t think it was food poisoning (it took too long to come on) but 11/20 people from the party were sick (so far…I hope no one else falls victim). I missed out on my work party. My people were planning an AMAZING VIP party complete with a burrito bar and a delicious cake. But I was stuck in bed trying not to die.  They did send me pics of virtual Brittney enjoying herself! 18920331_10100116298015463_1850892596052673571_n.jpg

I just know that 30 can only go up from here!


Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day Weekend

Oh we had a fun weekend together! I hated that Tyler had to work, but he joined in the fun when he could.  (These are out of order, but ain’t got time to fix it…so here are the highlights)

We took her to the waterpark on Memorial Day. It was BUSY but we got there when it opened to get seats in the shade.

She wasn’t sure at first, but ended up loving it.

Some play time in the shade….

I loved our matching blue swimsuits and pink hats.  My best girl.

We were there with the grandmas and cousins. We had a great time!

She wanted to be belly down, but the concrete was rough on little knees….so Kelsey helped her leg surf. ha!

She even took a little nap in the shade. The sun and fun will wear a girl out!

She LOVED when I put her swimsuit cover up on her. LOVED the hood. Big smiles.

She took a nap before we ever got the waterpark. My little frog. We used to call her tree frog as a teeny tiny newbie, and she still sleeps with her knees tucked. 

We did LOTS of playtime with Daddy when he was home. He’s the best. 

We were in Hot Springs on Sunday and she wore her red, white and blue then. I am in love with these sweet rompers. She did great in the hotel. Slept her normal time in the pack and play and was as great girl. 

We got to see family in Hot Springs. We got to play with Uncle Neil…

Family picture time. Love this crazy crew. Gavin is only smiling because he’s bunny-earing his dad. 

Nene and Carl were teaching her how to beat on the table. Girl likes to drum!

We went to Caitlyn’s dance recital in Hot Springs and she got some Nene lovings. 

Saturday morning, she was practically asking for a nap. Just couldn’t hang. ha!

We got to see Aunt Sandy and play together at recital. And how cute is our unicorn romper? LOVE. 

So that was our fun weekend: home, Hot Springs, hotel stay, back home, water park. Lots of fun. She’s so easy going and takes it all in.


Mother’s Day Tradition

Mother’s Day Tradition

Our Mother’s Day tradition is going to pick strawberries. It’s a fun time to be outside together, and we get amazing strawberries to take home!

This year, Remi got to come along for the fun!

She looked SO cute in her cowgirl romper.

It was her first time forward facing, and she was always looking down at everything- so you can’t see her face here! ha! 

We found picture perfect strawberries!

This little toodle bug even got to eat one right off the vine. 

Can you say DIVA?

It was fun to spend the morning all together!
