30 Week Highlights

30 Week Highlights

This week seemed to blur by. Between work, getting everything done (making sure she’s eating solids, going on walks, housework), the weeks zoom by.  We get to slow down and savor the weekends, though, which is nice.

Remi is loving church nursery with her little friends. I love thinking that these girls will grow up together!

We met Tyler’s cousins for dinner Monday night and they got some snuggles and playtime. Remi loves her cousins!

She had a viral infection and was home for a few days thanks to some fever. (PS. Nothing is worse than the text from daycare- “Remi has 102 fever.” Wah wah).  But she was still all smiles most of the time! 

Her little two teeth have broken through! 

That silly virus would make her happy and playing and then pitiful the next.  Poor bear.  Thankful she’s feeling better now. 

On Friday to celebrate going back to school, she wore her police support outfit. Daddy is our hero!

I can’t believe she’s 30 weeks old!


Christmastime is here!

Christmastime is here!

Well, technically Christmastime has come and gone. But we sure did have a good one!

Remi’s first Christmas was great.  The only thing that could have made it better was if Tyler didn’t have to work…but we managed to spend lots of time with him.

The funniest gift was the horse hat that Gigi bought her.

Complete with a mane.

I mean, how funny is this horse-baby?

Remi spent the gift time in the floor in the middle of us admiring the pretty paper.

We made our big Christmas breakfast for dinner since Tyler worked that morning. Monkey bread, hashbrown casserole, egg casserole, sausage balls and waffles. YUM to the max!

After church and lunch, we all snuggled down for a long winter’s nap. Snuggly couch naps are my fave.

We met Tyler in town at one of three places open to eat for lunch. It was a blessing to meet up with him for Christmas lunch, even though it was pretty different from normal. 

Remi did SO good at church. No fussing at all.  And she looked adorable in her Christmas dress!

The night before, we went to Christmas Eve candlelight service. So great to have the whole family there.

Remi wore my old Christmas dress.  Yes, that’s a 29 year old baby dress that my mom held onto!

Our sweet family! Such a blessed Christmas.


Week 8 highlights 

Week 8 highlights 

Holy moly! Another week has gone by. You’re almost two months old! (Right? She turns 2 months on the 8th, right? Even though she is 8 weeks at the end of this week? I think that’s right)…

Anyway, this was a quieter week with some more home time. Tyler worked 1.5 weeks straight until Tuesday, so once he was off work, he was home on his days off to spend some time together. It was nice.

I decorated for Christmas, and I was able to get our stockings personalized! We’ve had these stockings for years. I actually have two more (probably for dogs…but just in case of another baby), but I never put our names on them. I wanted to wait for a child. Well, here they are! I love them!

This girl is LOVING her playmat. BIG smiles.

She wore her first Christmas jammies. Not impressed! ha!

One day we went and had lunch with Tyler while he was working. It was fun to see him, even though he couldn’t really hold her. Too much equipment on his vest. Too many sharp/hard things so not baby friendly.

Other than that, we had lots of playtime, snuggle time, and another great week together.

I’m so thankful for our family and for this time together.


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?
