Week 47 Highlights

Week 47 Highlights

Holy cow! Where is time going? Five weeks until you’re ONE!

I’m trying hard to savor these moments as they fly by!

Saturday was a busy day for us both, but we spent most of the day apart. Nancy took Remi to visit some family while I took care of some things I don’t ever have time for.

She LOVED all the attention and fun. She and Grandpa had a fun time, and they saw lots of family including Uncle Dwight (pretty sure that’s his finger she’s pulling) and Uncle Joe and Aunt Verlene.

Grandpa is so smitten with this little girl.

We spent Saturday evening together and she had a little trouble falling asleep. I wonder if her molars are coming in? Either way, she was ready to play Sunday morning!

Sunday she wore her buttefly romper (again…I love it!) and did some playing before church.

We were together in the floor (and I wasn’t ready yet). I was trying to get her pic to send to Daddy, so I had my camera on. She crawled over and gave me the BIGGEST SWEETEST KISS EVER. I snapped a pic. It’s not flattering of me, but I don’t care. I love this.

She was SO HAPPY at lunch after church. She was playing with Grammy and was laughing it up.

Sunday evening, she and daddy got some time together (since he had worked overtime over the weekend, he was gone at bedtime all weekend) and they read a counting book. He’s just the best with her.

And these pics aren’t flattering, but they are memories. Family snuggle time on the couch! I love my people.

I’m teaching her the art of the outfit selfie. 🙂  I got to wear a Hanson shirt to work, so it was a good day.

She was a ham a LOT this week. Silly girl!

We sometimes take morning videos for daddy when he’s working.  She was being SO silly during this one.

She helped Daddy fix her toy. So big!

Before her ear follow up, she got to come say hi to my work friends. She loved our seating area! (and thank goodness, ear infection is gone!)

Next week may be a little limited since I’m gone for part of the week for work. Hopefully daddy and the grandmas will send me lots of pictures!


Week 22 Highlights

Week 22 Highlights

This week seemed to zoom by in a flash. I’m in Easter choir and there are extra rehearsals, so I’ve been gone extra for rehearsals. That makes our time together even more special.

Saturday evening, we did a little bathtub swimming. Since Ty was working on his truck, it was just me and Remi. I usually put on a swimsuit and get in with her, but since I was solo, I stayed out.

She doesn’t smile much while swimming, but she splashes and kicks around, so I know she likes it.

We got into the toy box and added some new toys to our rotation, including this “purse” I bought her. It crinkles, has some key chewers and even a little crinkly money attached. It’s adorable. She held onto her purse while we “shopped” at lunch.

She wore some SUPER CUTE Ric Rac and Ruffles to church! Everyone loved this outfit!

We spent some time at Grandpa’s over the weekend. She was the center of attention. Tyler’s cousin Kelsey is holding her, and Nancy, Grandpa and Uncle Dwight are all gathered around. 

Great grandpa and his girl. Precious. 

So that was week 22! So much fun happening around here!


Weekend Recap: O-Fish-Ally a Good One

Weekend Recap: O-Fish-Ally a Good One

We have fully embraced Tyler’s new hobby this weekend- fishing. We did a lot of it!

But it was a busy weekend. I’m surprised I’m not totally wiped out because I really didn’t get much napping or resting in!

Before I start the weekend recap, here was a highlight from last week- buying milk that’s good past my due date! I’m due October 2! What?!

Friday at work we had a fun baby shower for my coworker, Lyndsay. We celebrated her and her sweet baby girl and then I met up with mom to hit Sam’s and Kohl’s.

While we shopped, Tyler got the boat ready and we all met up and hit the water around 6 p.m. Tyler traded our golf cart for a fishing boat. It’s pretty nice! Two fish finders, the main motor and a foot-operated trolling motor, spaces for 7 to sit.

He’s into bass fishing now. I was fishing for catfish, but didn’t catch any! He wanted to bring these home to stock our pond, but his water tank wasn’t pumping in any water. He’ll have to check on that soon.

Saturday was his family reunion. He had to work, which originally I was pretty sad about. Going without him isn’t the same.

However, I saw the PD post this on FB and was so proud of him. Saturday there was a police-loving little girl who had a birthday party and Tyler and this other officer showed up. The PD posted the picture of them with the kids….and then this guy left a comment about Tyler. I’m so proud that he embraced his calling and does his job well.

Saturday after the reunion, I came home and hit my PJs and the yoga ball.  The poor dogs HATE the yoga ball since they can’t sit in my lap! ha!

Pippin was relieved when I finally hit the couch and he could crawl all over me.

Sunday morning, we spent some time out on the porch before church. It was the first feeling of fall and it was GLORIOUS.

After church, we waited for Ty to get off work then headed to Grandpa’s for Tyler’s birthday celebration. Our friends Lauren and JJ came and brought their little boy, Ryan. He loves Tyler. They were playing with grandpa’s weights here.

While we ate dinner, some rain blew in…but then it was cool and perfect outside. So we headed to the pond to fish!

A beautiful rainbow greeted us.

Tyler caught several little bass and 3 big ones! Brad, Kelsey and JJ did some fishing, but they didn’t catch much. Tyler attributes his catches to his “Purple Power” lure! He LOVES that thing! ha! Too bad he lost it at the end with a too-big-to-catch catfish. The fish got away with his lure!

We got home after 9 and hit the hay pretty quickly.

Now we just anxiously await the arrival of this baby any day now!

How was your weekend?


Weekend Recap: Fun and Family

Weekend Recap: Fun and Family

This weekend was great. Refreshing, relaxing, and fun.

I took a half day off work Friday to go get a massage (got a certificate for my birthday and it was burning a hole in my pocket).  Then I did some shopping (Hey TJ Maxx hey!).  I met up with Tyler (who is off on Fridays) and we walked the dogs and then headed to town for a movie/dinner date.

We saw Jurassic World, which was great. I am not super familiar with the Jurassic movies…but it was good.

We decided to get burgers afterwards and tried a new-to-us place.  The burgers were good.  Tyler got a big double…and finished every bite. 🙂

 

After dinner, I had rehearsal.  They walked through the first act…and it was so fun to see what they have been working on during rehearsals when I’m not there.

 

Saturday morning, I was up early to help the 4-H kids run a break station for the True Grit ride.  It’s a charity bike ride in town that offers 35, 50, 75, and 100 mile rides.  We ran the first break stop.  It was hot, so we had lots of visitors. 🙂  

 

Saturday afternoon, we rescued our neighbor’s goat.  They are out of town, but a friend of ours is taking care of their house and animals.  And little Shadow got stuck.  So Tyler had to use bolt cutters to take out a section of fence and set him free.  

 

Sunday, I sang at church (video here– I sing during the offering right before the sermon )

Then we had lunch together and waited for Tyler to come home. Once he got off work, we headed over to Oklahoma to visit Grandpa.  Mom, Nancy and I took a walk to see the horses.

 

And I may have chased this bunny into the field trying to catch it.  I want a bunny so bad.

We loved visiting and hanging out.  I loved this picture I snuck of Grandpa and Dad visiting in the living room.  They are quite a pair! IMG_2172

 

So that was my weekend.  Lots of fun and family time. How was your weekend?
