our new nephew!

here is our new precious nephew: REESE JACKSON JAMES. he was born on wednesday, september 23 at 12:30 pm. he weighed 8 lbs, 10 oz. and was 21 in. long! i think he looks like his big brother ryan. i don't know why these pics are so small. maybe because i hijacked them off of facebook?!?!!? :) we can't wait to meet this little guy and squeeze those cheeks! :)

this boy loves to be outside!!

court LOVES to be outside. if i even mention the word, oUtSiDe, there is DrAmA until we actually make it out the door. so, last week, when we had some great cool weather, we spent alot of time outdoors. we headed to the park to feed the ducks. court loves the ducks but they get a little too close for comfort, so he sticks close to DAD.

this boy can do some serious sliding. luckily he can get to the top by himself and i just have to catch him at the bottom. this comes in handy being 8 months pregnant. 

he also loves to swing....

here we are playing in the backyard and he is "counting" with mimi. mimi was bouncing up and down while counting, so now court thinks that is how you have to do it every time you count. rhett was so confused the first time he saw court "bouncing" and counting. once he sees you do something, he remembers! smart boy!! he'll fit in great at A&M!!! :)
sitting on the back step checking everything out.

bahama mama and papa

rhett and i got to run away to another country for a pre-2nd baby boy babymoon last week! it was heaven just to be able to spend 5 uninterrupted days with my wonderful hubby. we actually got to have complete conversations without being interrupted! 5 days without a poopy diaper, no cooking, and no cleaning was just what i needed!! :) we did miss court like CRAZY though! he got sick as soon as we left with a high fever, but mimi and pops took great care of him. i think they are in need of a vacation after 5 days with our little tornado. :)  we could not wait to see court when we came home on monday and i've been catching up on all of his sugars and snuggles in between chasing him around. what's up with this rain? we need to be outside!! :)

this was at the airport the day we left. we left out of the same terminal where all of the troops come off the plane. we started hearing all of this applause at 8:30 AM and once we found it, we both got chills. the whole terminal stops what they are doing and applauds all of the troops coming off the plane. it was amazing!!!
dinner out at a chinese restaurant - in the bahamas. nope - no chinese cooks around, but it was still yummy!!

pics from the atlantis resort...

the atlantis resort has a ton of aquariums, lagoons, and animal habitats. so, we had fun exploring the day it rained. 
here are the glow-in-the-dark jellyfish. 

this thing is HUGE!!!!

rhett is checking out the sharks. 

one of my favorite parts of the meal plan was dessert EVERY night. this was just one of them. YUMMM!!!!

last night in the bahamas on our way to dinner. my hubby got a little too much sun. :)
