Happy Thanksgiving Ya’ll!

It was one year ago today that I wrote and posted my first blog entry.  One year.  Whoa.  I enjoy looking through our pictures often and writing about them so hopefully one day Wesley will appreciate it too!  Let’s review what we’re thankful for every day…

How about these two??

Even though they only take silly pictures!

And Nim


And Papaw Gary because he reads to you…


And Cousin Paige because she lets you have a whole roll and then water from a “big girl” glass…

And then lets you rest here…

That tickled us all so much! I think Paige really enjoyed you giving her so much attention!

How about being so very thankful for our new home and hosting our very first Thanksgiving dinner there!  I asked Nana, “when did we grow up????”

We love our times with family and friends!  And we count those blessings as being some of the most special!  We cannot wait for Christmas memories coming soon!  Until then, thank you for all of your love and hope you enjoy many more posts from us!

P.S.  I googled that punctuation but I’m not sure I got the correct answer.  The way I understand it is, if trying to show ownership use -s’ otherwise use –es…neither look right to me so I went with -‘s.  Mom would probably know the correct form.  Dad gummit!

P.S.S.  I’m pretty sure that’s not a word or even spelled correct…ha!

Wesley Kay is 10 months old!!!

Only one more of these until you are one year old!  Pick me up off the floor now!  I cannot believe you will be one soon….

Let’s talk about what’s going on now.  You are still a great sleeper, sleeping about 10 hours per night.  Naps are still inconsistent but you have two of them now and go down for them pretty easy. You take four bottles per day with about 28 total ounces.  You eat your baby food well but fuss a lot to feed yourself.  Such a big girl!  You wave bye bye and hi.  And it’s so funny for me and Mrs. Shirley when you start to wave bye bye as soon as I pick you up when I get to her house.  You love to read and especially love My Little Pumpkin that Riley and Harper gave you for Halloween.  It has a “peek a boo” storyline.  You also still love all the Baby Einstein movies.  And you are still not doing the traditional crawl but seem just happy doing the army crawl all over.  You are working on pulling up and are very good at pulling up on everything to your knees.  Still love your sweet potatoes and bananas!  You bring us joy every single day and we do not know what we did before you came along.  Nothing as worthwhile as this!  We love you very much and cannot wait to see your happy face at Christmastime!

Daddy got him a deer too!

Get use to taking pictures with Daddy’s big deer because he’s pretty good at hunting them!  I know he enjoys it but he really looks forward to you in the stand with him one day.  I hope you’re ready in a few years!  Hunting for him will never be the same!

You will look so good in blazing orange;)

Riley Morgan!!

Riley got her first deer!  We are all excited!  She couldn’t wait to show off her picture at school.  Scott was really proud of her and was bragging about how big the doe was!  You go girl!  Harper is now ‘chomping at the bits’ even more to be old enough to shoot one himself.  Let ‘em walk this year Harper…then bring ‘em down next year!  Just don’t pet all over them!  We found out he is very allergic to deer.  How strange?!?!

And here is a picture of our future deer slayer…

Race for the Cure

Wesley got to experience her first of many Race for the Cure events!  She had a good time despite the cold temperatures! She is so observant and loves to people watch so this was just what she wanted this weekend.  Of course to us, it means so much more.  And guess what?!?!  Wesley made her first tv appearance!  We were waiting to watch Nana in the survivor parade and a reporter noticed the cute flags and adorable baby and proceeded to get our story.  Remember, we have a great history of Race for the Cure races.  We were married on that day three years ago!  Let me take you back to that day in history….

0370852204013 Here was my first race day interview!  As if my wedding day in general wasn’t nerve racking enough!  It was fun though!  Look at my cute pink veil!  Compliments of Mandy H. 

0370867571013 Here’s a good pic of Wesley’s Papaw Gary, Nana and Daddy that year!

0370852226013 And the coolest shirts ever!  Compliments of the super creative BFF Kelly! 

0370897852013 Look how many fans I had that day!  And they all turned around and came to the wedding and reception that night.  Blessed!

Ok…back to present day (or a few weeks ago, not years anyway). 

IMG_0055 The group picture in front of the big pink ribbon is always good.  Our group is expanding;)

IMG_0060 IMG_0061 And look!  Awesome shirts again!  Compliments of Kelly of course!  She is so creative!

IMG_0066 And last…our brunch trip to Applebees.  I think this picture with Nana and Wesley with her cute shirt made by my friend Sarah is the best!  Looking forward to many more Race for the Cure days.  It will always be one of my best race running times!
