So my camera battery died and i couldn't load those pictures the other day. I did in fact go shopping and loved it! I got tons of cute stuff and am so glad! It is nice to have some fun new things in this new stage of my life.

We're all doing great around here and just really growing in all kinds of ways! As parents, Tony and I are learning every day new things and making discoveries about being parents along with Chip who is becoming more observant and curious every day. We constantly sing songs, talk about what is going on in the world and tell stories about silly things. We are always making funny noises, and silly faces to just catch a glimpse of joy and a sweet smile every chance we've got!

I'm getting ready to move my store for hopefully the LAST time but the move is going to be a fabulous one!!! I am moving to where my overhead is SIGNIFICANTLY less which means less stress on us all. We will be doing that the weekend of the 4th of October so keep us in your prayers! I'm hoping that it all goes smooth and that nothing but nice words come out of all of our mouths so let that be your prayer! Hoping that all of you are well and when i get fresh batteries in the camera, I'll definitely post the videos!

So we've been just hanging out lately and are doing really well! i took a video of Chip talking to Mr Frog and am going to make an attempt at posting it, but we'll see. I'm really excited about tonight because I'm going to go shopping for some "after baby"/"sassy mom" clothes! Totally excited to spend a gift card on me, not diapers! **selfish, i know... ** I'll let you know what i found later. hope all is well and we'll attempt to post the video now.

nothing compares to my papa's tummy!!!

smooshing that cute little nose in his sleep, but if you move him, it's not pretty!
he likes it how he likes it....... sound like someone else we all know!?!? (HIS MOMMA!!!)

yes... those are his legs sticking straight up in his sleep.
he must have GREAT abs to be able to hold that pose!

believe it or not, he really likes this thing!!!

the weekend

So we had a really fun weekend! After finally getting over the trauma of the shots we were really able to enjoy the weekend. The day of his shots, i spoke too soon on my blog. When he woke up from sleeping, he SCREAMED at every second that his leg was even remotely being touched. He ended up with a quarter size bruise on his right thigh and he insisted on nursing on the hour EVERY hour until about 11:30 p.m. Mommy cried, baby cried, daddy cried... we were all just exhausted Friday night! Saturday rolled around and the resilience of babies continues to amaze us! Saturday morning, you would have never know anything was wrong the day before! I worked, TOny worked and we went to a friends house afterwards and watched the HORRIFIC auburn game. We left there mentally drained from watching all of that and went home and all went straight to bed. Sunday morning we woke up at the CRACK of dawn and drove to Birmingham for Dane's (our nephew's) 1st birthday!!! What a great time we had up there with the family and with him! He was soooooo good and just really enjoyed the cake AND icecream! We stopped in Millbrook and saw Howard and Dana on the way home, then headed back south. Boy was that an adventure! Poor Chip had been in a car all day and was just truly exhausted! We stopped and nursed him while we got gas right outside of montgomery and then had to stop 7 minutes down the road, take chip out, nurse him again, and walk outside of the car at TEN OCLOCK pm on the side of 231... S-C-A-R-Y!!! While we were doing this, a trooper pulled up and made sure all was ok and was so kind and looped along the medians of the highway 'til we pulled off. We got him in his seat, settled down, and i ended up in the back with him, which i usually don't do, but i sat there and we "talked" for a little bit and then we both ended up falling asleep while TOny drove the rest of the way home. Boy has home not been so nice to get to in a LOOOONG time and boy did we learn our lesson on just how much an infant can handle.We survived it all though and its all a part of this fabulous and exciting journey we're on called parenthood. needless to say, we wouldn't trade any of it for the world! One last thing... Chip is starting to really develop his back and neck muscles and try a LOT harder to pick up his head during tummy time! it wont be long... wow how time flies and how fast they grow.

2 month check up

Hey guys. So today was our 2 month check up and it went really well! Chip weighed in at a WHOPPING 9 lbs 2 oz and measured 22 inches long with a 39 1/2 circ. head. We got 3 shots and the rotovirus vaccine and all went really well! We are just so pleased and blessed beyond reason that it went well today! We've really gotta get on the "tummy time" mat more and work on our back strength but that will come with time. Hope this finds everyone just as well and we'll post again soon!

wow. so i'm HORRIBLE, i know, for not being better at keeping up the blog and the pictures. Chip is just absolutely growing and developing so fast! He is really vocal and just loves to smile and coo when he's got a full tummy and just up from a nap. His favorite place to be is his changing table at home. there is a little frog that sits on the edge of it and he just talks to him for about 10 - 15 minutes each time he's on the table. if he's not talking to the frog, he is talking to the polka dots that are on the curtains. It is just truly amazing watching him grow and develop.

Tony got inducted into an honor society @ school and we are all so proud of him! We'll put pictures up from that later but for now, i'm giong to catch you all up on pictures since... gosh... last week! Sorry for the length between posts, i'll try to do better!

Labor Day

So we had a fabulous holiday weekend. Howard and Dana were down and we spent the whole weekend with them at mom and dads. we all spent the night with mom and dad and just truly had a blast!!! Chip has gotten where he smiles and coos at all kinds of things, loves looking at fans and lights and is just continuing to bless our hearts and make us smile. He truly is a blessing from the Lord that we weren't planning, nor did we know we had room in our hearts for him but boy has he stolen our hearts and our time!!! :-) I hope that you all enjoy the pictures and for the rest of them go to:

Enjoy and God bless!

ps... our congratulations goes out to Wade and Jennifer Spears!!! David was born last night @ 8:40 p.m. weighing in at 8 lbs 8 oz and 22 inches long! Mommy and baby are good, dad is "surviving" and they're all pleased with life!
