guess who is 1 month old already?!?!?

guess what everybody?!?! i'm 1 month old! i am loving life with my big brother court. i'm looking at him in this picture - that's why my mom can't get one of me looking at her. i think my brother is the best thing ever! i am growing so fast and eating ALOT these days. i sleep really good at night and sometimes during the day. there is just too much going on during the day and i think i need to stay awake for all of it! my mom is working on that with me. :) we'll see who wins. i'm pretty sure i've got my mom wrapped around my finger. she LOVES to hold me and snuggle and i would let her all day if i could! my brother loves to help change my diapers and stick the pacifier in my mouth. he loves to kiss me and pat my back. my daddy can't wait to get home to play with me and court. he loves to sing to me and i think he's really good at it. well, enough for now. i've got to get ready to meet santa this year. i've been really good this whole 1st month of life so i think i might get some good presents.

zoo trip

we headed to the zoo on wednesday after my 38 week doc. appt where she said that NOTHING had changed. so, why not go to the zoo?? we had so much fun looking at the animals on such a GORGEOUS day! mimi and pops tagged along with us to help keep up with busy boy. i rented my little motorized scooter since i knew i wouldn't be able to walk the whole zoo and also because that was the only way rhett would let me go. :) can't wait to take BOTH of my boys to the zoo one day.

court found a huge sand box and i think he would have stayed there playing if we had let him. 

sitting on the scooter together. court found the "horn" and i think annoyed everyone around us!

Beckham's Room

we have finally finished the baby's new room. just in time for baby beckham to arrive...... any day now. :) here are the LOVELY ladies that did all the bedding, diaper stacker, pillows, blankets, crib skirt, etc. love it all!! this is melissa's  (my sil) mom and nanny. they did a fabulous job! i just know beckham will love it! :) the only thing missing is curtains (rhett's mom is making those) and beckham's name over his crib. i'm still trying to come up with something cute for his name. any suggestions?

aunt missy (melissa) went shopping when we thought beckham was coming early. she did a FABULOUS job with all the accessories! :)
do you see the shelf over the changing pad? rhett made that! isn't he talented?!?! my MIL nancy painted the shelf and helped with all of the last minute touches for the room. we are so grateful!

i only have the closet door open to show you the shelves rhett made for the closet. again - i have the most amazing and talented husband! :)

and here i am at 36 weeks preggo. i don't think i can get any bigger! :)

halloween 2009

this was court's "2nd" halloween. he was only 7 months old last year, so i doubt he remembers how cute he was then. but, i sure do! this year, he was a fireman because he loves to imitate the fire truck siren. he had a hard day of very little sleep, so i worried that we would be a cranky trick-or-treater. but, he got a short snooze on the way to uncle jon, aunt missy, and cousin cade's house, so he was good to go. we joined them at a church festival and court just loved taking it all in! :)  we didn't stay too long because we were ALL getting hungry. we stayed just long enough to find the balloons because these boys love balloons! then, we headed out to eat and then home to catch a good nights sleep! :)

here is cade....ummmm excuse me, i mean NEMO! :)

the boys and their daddies having fun on the slide!:)

Pumpkin Patch 2009

here are some pics from our trip to the flower mound pumpkin patch this year. i love being so close! :) it was a chilly day, and it was the 1st sunny day in about 2 weeks, so there was MUD everywhere. i think we lasted about 1 hour before the meltdown began. we didn't even get a group pic with our MOPS group! maybe next year. rhett ended up taking court back the very next day so they could get a pumpkin and ride the hay ride - 2 things we didn't get to do when we were there. :) mimi went with us which was such a help since i was waddling along everywhere. next year, i think we will plan on a day when rhett can take off since we will have 2 wild boys! :)
