memorial day

we took our 1st road trip as a family of four this past memorial day. we had just gotten our (new to us) suburban the week before, and it made it OH SO NICE to make the 6 hour trip. we squeezed ALOT of fun into the 3 1/2 days we were there. court had so much fun playing outside from sun up til sun down and he can't wait to go back!
there was tree climbing to do.... up in the deer blind

beckham and grandad out by the pond

there was playing in the sand.....

there were lots of naps taken....

there was archery practicing....

court had to get in on this action...

there was planting to do......

beckham is saying,....."i luv you, momma!"
now, he's saying... "enough with the pictures already, momma!"

there was snuggling on a blanket to do.....

and of course wearing your baseball hat backwards! girls, eat your hearts out!

mother's day 2010

i know i am WAY behind on blogging, so i am going to attempt to catch up. mother's day this year was SO AMAZING. having 2 boys to share it with just made it extra special. it started saturday afternoon with a pedicure while rhett and the boys had a guys day. i came home to rhett doing dinner with the boys and then he took over bedtime. it was nice to have a break and get my toes done! sunday, rhett and the boys made me breakfast and i got a great pic of the boys and their hand/foot prints. i also got the book I Will Carry You by Angie Smith. rhett knows how much i love her blog, so he thought i'd love her book too - which i do! we went to early church and then to mimi & pops to celebrate with the whole fam over lunch. i don't think court napped that day because there was too much fun to be had! he definitely konked early that night!!

i know that i was meant to be a mother to two boys, these 2 precious boys. and a wife to this man. i was born to be rhett’s wife and court & beckham's mommy. there is no doubt, i know.
i was born to carry the immense heartaches and immeasurable joys that come with being a mom, a mom of two boys i know it. it’s no accident, no random luck of the draw. i am immensely blessed.

happy half birthday beckham

this is WAY past due because we have been sick, sick, sick around here. it all started about 2 weeks ago with this cutie pie getting tonsillitis and an ear infection... which then spread to court, and then to mommy. rhett has yet to get sick, thank the LORD! baby boy was ALL better and then WHAMMOOO! sick again - ear infection and red throat is BACK and we are on round 2 of antibiotics... hoping this stuff kicks it in the tail! so, i'm a little behind on the blogging stuff.....
anyways.... here's the scoop on my little man who i just can't get enough of!!
at his 6 month well check which was right smack in the middle of these 2 sicknesses he weighed in at 17lbs. now, he's back up to 17.7 - trying to gain our weight back from being sick. he is 27 in. long and growing like a weed!! he is talking all the time, laughing, grabbing onto things, almost sitting up, loves to eat, loves to put EVERYTHING in his mouth, rolling all over the place, and just the cutest thing!
he still has the best smile and cutest dimples a momma could ever ask for. he lights up when he sees us or court come in the room and is reaching out to hold everyone. love that!!
i'm really at a loss for words thinking about the fact that my baby is 6 months old already. how has 1/2 a year gone by SO FAST?  today we spent time dancing in the office while listening to some good ole' christian music. i love the dave crowder band by the way. i just love dancing with my boys and LOVE that i will always have at least 3 dance partners!
here is my sweet little man on mother's day. :) big brother was anti-picture taking that day. :(
