Let's go fly a kite....

The boys colored these kites a couple weeks ago and then we waited for the perfect windy day.  Which we didn't have to wait long for.  One good thing about Oklahoma wind, I suppose.








They loved it!  For about 10 minutes.  Ha.

21 weeks

A few days late but.....



How far along? 21 (22) weeks - 21 weeks by my original calculations but they moved my due date up after my ultrasound so really more like 22.  But I'm going to keep track by my original weeks.
Total weight gain: 12 lbs. as of last week...I'm sure I've put on 1 or 2 more. I'm trying not to stress too much about it. But I do feel like I look bigger in person than these weekly pictures??
Stretch marks? no
Sleep: this week has been rough because of Gra's surgery.  So not very much, which is obvious by my tired eyes in the picture
Best moment this week: celebrating Keith's birthday
Movement: mostly just flutters and random light movement
Food cravings: nothing specific this week...but pretty hungry all the time. And I have been eating a lot of cereal, frosted flakes to be exact.
Gender: GIRL
Labor Signs: nope
Belly Button in or out? eh, kinda flat if that makes sense
What I miss: nothing yet
What I am looking forward to: Keith being able to feel her move
Milestones: booked our newborn photographer

On the mend...

It's been a doozy of a week.  Gra had to have a 2nd set of tubes put in on Tuesday and had his adenoids removed.  Overall, he's doing pretty good.  Not sleeping much (which means none of us are sleeping much) so mornings are a little rough because that is when it's most evident he's not feeling like himself.  

Pretty excited first thing Tuesday morning.  He knew we were going to the doctor so they could fix the boo boo's inside his ears.

Aren't brothers the best?!  It is so amazing watching these 2 become best friends and develop such an awesome bond!




All I wanted was 1 pic of them laying there together.  Below is what I got.  True life!  I'm learning to embrace them and all their sillies.  And they cannot keep their hands to themselves.  Ever.




Coming out of anesthesia is always rough.  Makes kids crazy (well, at least in my experience, with this kid, which thankfully isn't much!)  Luckily he slept most of it off.  I was more than happy to sit there and hold him as long as he wanted/needed.  We got in some good snuggles that day.

I'm so thankful everything went smoothly and praying Gra continues to feel better each day.  And more tubes and adenoids out overall makes him feel better.  And so thankful for minor surgeries for minor issues.  
We don't take our healthy kids for granted!

Happy Birthday Keith


Happy Birthday to my incredible husband, who I most definitely don't deserve. 
I'm honored to do life with him!

Jump, jump, jump

The weather has been teasing us lately...we'll get a few nice days and then back to cold.  We've been sneaking outside every chance we get.  Late last week the boys enjoyed jumping and I enjoying snapping some pictures of them.  We all soaked up the sunshine. 

As they get bigger, they are looking so much alike to me!!








Everything turns into a wrestling match.  Everything!

Figured it was time to start my weekly updates.

Total weight gain: 12 lbs. so far
Stretch marks? not yet...
Sleep: still pretty good - I have a little boy who still isn't the best sleeper so that doesn't help.
Best moment this week: enjoying the nice weather outside with my family.
Movement: starting to feel more and more little flutters, which I love!
Food cravings: ice water with lemon
Gender: GIRL
Labor Signs: none, thankfully
Belly Button in or out? eh, kinda flat if that makes sense
What I miss: nothing really
What I am looking forward to: Keith being able to feel her move
Milestones: halfway!

Saw's {super hero} 4th birthday party

We celebrated Saw's 4th birthday with a belated super hero themed party in Birmingham.  It was actually a joint party with Harper, which was so much fun and very convenient!

His invites.

The back of the invite.
He will surely kill me one day for putting this picture on his invitation but seriously, how could I resist!  It is adorable and was perfect!


My aunt made the banner and the cut outs and they turned out so cute!!




The birthday boy LOVED having his party at a bounce house.  He was seriously in heaven!

Everyone had a blast sliding!

I mean....their smiles....nothing better!! Nothing!!  They both loved it!








So happy to see Sarah and Cameron!

This party was super low key but I loved planning it with my sister.


How sweet are these brothers?! 
{most of the time} ;)

Cousins







We had so much fun celebrating Sawyer and Harper.
I'm thinking four is going to be a really fun year!!
