Savanna's 8 year pics

Today I took my niece, Savanna to Morris Avenue and Botanical Gardens to take her 8 year pics! Her birthday was actually in March, but every time we would plan to have them taken it would rain or someone would get sick. Although they are belated, we finally managed to get them taken. I think they turned out great! She is such a beautiful young lady! It's hard to believe she is already 8 years old! She is such a sweetie! I am such a lucky Aunt! I had such a great time today spending time with her and taking pics!

Happy Birthday Quinn!

Today is my sisters 29th birthday! We all went to The Olive Garden b/c its Quinn's favorite restaurant! It was so good! Dylan & Maddie did great! Dylan got her the sweetest card and he colored inside it with different color markers, it was so cute! He also sang Happy Birthday to her which was precious! I got her a gift certificate to a spa, I think she will enjoy it! After we ate Mama, me & Dylan went to Belk and bought him an outfit! Then, Dylan and me met Quinn at WalMart and got a few things! We have had a fun day and I think Quinn has enjoyed it too! Happy Birthday Quinner, we love you!

Memorial Day

My little cowboy

Sweet Maddie Grace

The Coleman Family

So sweet

I love them so much

Today we celebrated Memorial Day by going to my Mama's house and eating some great food! I am so grateful to have such a wonderful family! I got to love on my little Maddie the whole time! She is so cute and she is getting so chunky! I love it! She smiles so much now and is cooing all the time! She is the sweetest thing! Dylan is finally calling her "Maddie" instead of "baby"! I didn't think he would ever say her name! We had such a great day, I am so blessed!

Jason & Ashley's wedding day!

Saturday Jason (my brother-in-law) and Ashley got married in Gatlinburg! We weren't able to go, but I really wish we could have been there! It was so beautiful and they had so much fun! Not only do I have a new sister-in-law, but I have a new nephew! Jacob is so sweet and I am so glad they are a part of our family! I am so happy for them and can't wait for the after party when they get back!! Congrats Jason & Ashley! We love ya'll!

A gift for MiMi

This is our newest project! When Dylan is coloring in his book, he will say, "hanrit". It took me awhile, but I finally realized he was saying "handprint"! So, I found some bathroom tiles we have and let him do several of them! He loved it! Today we took one to MiMi and he was so proud to show her!

Having fun at MiMi's

Today we went to spend some time with MiMi! When we got there, MiMi gave Dylan his new coloring book and crayons! He loved it! Then, she gave him some sidewalk chalk and he couldn't wait to use it! He had the best time on MiMi's sidewalk! He could have colored all day! He wanted Mama to sit and draw with him! It was fun, I felt like a kid again! He loves going to his MiMi's b/c she always has something fun for him to do! The rain started back up again, so we just sat on the porch and watched it come down while Dylan enjoyed a popsicle! It has been a great day!

Love to see him smile

Today Dylan's daycare called me and told me that he was sick, so I went to get him. He didn't feel good and did not act like my energetic, happy baby boy! He was pale and didn't want me to put him down. My poor baby was sick! When we got home, he ate some chicken noodle soup and drank some Pedialyte & 7up. I put him down for a nap and told him we would do something fun when he got up! While he was sleeping, I tried to think of something I could do to cheer him up! It breaks my heart to see him sick! I went downstairs and found some leftover floor & ceiling tiles we have. I wanted to do some hand and feet prints and let him have fun with it! I went ahead and painted the ceiling tile a tan color and let it dry. When Dylan woke up, he felt a lot better. So, I painted his hands and feet with my paintbrush and we started to make something! He loved it!! It tickled him when I would paint his hands with the paintbrush, it was so cute watching him laugh at me! We had fun making these and now I have them in my living room! I put a giraffe print ribbon around the ceiling tile and eventually I am going to hang it up! It made me happy to be able to put a smile on my little mans face! He was so proud that he made something! I love him so much!

Sweet girl

These are some recent pics of Maddie that Quinn sent me! She is so sweet, she sends me pics almost everyday! She is getting so big! She is laughing and smiling all the time! She loves her bumbo too! She can sit in it for about 10 minutes and is getting better at it considering they just got her one! I can't wait to take her to Botanical Gardens this weekend to get some new pics! I love my precious little Maddie!

Good news!!

My best friend, Laci and her husband Anthony are expecting their first child!! She called me as soon as she found out!! She took the digital test today, so she hasn't gone to the doctor yet. I will find out more soon! I am so excited for them! Laci & I have known each other since 7th grade and have gone through so many milestones together! I am so glad that this another one that we can share! Parenthood is the hardest thing but the best thing to experience!! Laci's sister, Shelli has a 3 month old little boy named Jarrett! Now their children will be 1 year apart! They will be so close and I know Laci is thrilled! I am so happy for them and I wanted to share with everyone!

My little man

I wanted to take Dylan to the beach this year, so I called my friend Missy and asked if we could use their condo. She said yes of course!! Their condo is in Orange Beach and it is right on the beach! They also have a heated pool and a kiddie pool, it is perfect! I knew Dylan would love the beach and I couldn't wait to take him! I asked my Mama to go with us, b/c I knew she would enjoy it and I knew that Dylan would want her there! Boy was I right...he woke up every morning and the first thing he would say is, "MiMi"! Can you say...spoiled rotten? The weather was perfect and the food was great! Dylan didn't know what to think of the sand at first, it took him a minute but he warmed up to it! It was so special to see Dylan's face and watch him experience one of my favorite places to be! He was scared of the ocean at first and never really got used to it, but he would hold our hands and let the water hit his feet, it was so sweet watching him soak it all in! He loved to sit in the sand and fill up his bucket and find shells! He had a blast! Now the pool was a different story, he LOVED it!! He even made a friend, her name was Kenley and she was so cute! He had fun playing with her! It was cute to see him flirting at such a young age! He got so comfortable by the pool that he decided to pull his diaper half way down and run around and then took his diaper off! He didn't realize he had an audience, they cracked up at him, it was hilarious! We went to eat at some of my favorite restaurants...King Neptunes, Bubba's and Tacky Jacks! Dylan loved all the seafood and ate his favorite...salad!! My favorite part of the trip other than watching my baby boy have a blast was taking pictures!! I got so many great shots of my little angel! I didn't want to come home, although I knew it eventually had to end! We had a blast! I had such a great time with my family and I can't wait for the next trip!!
