Sarah Kathryn at 6 months

Our beautiful girl is already 6 months old!  How on earth?  

Doctor appointment:  We will go for the well check up on Monday...we had to go today for vomiting. You were 17 lbs today.

Clothes: You wear size 3 diapers.  You are wearing mostly 6-9 month clothes.  You are loving being in your dresses, bubbles, and basically anything.  I think you need to wear more comfy stuff, but I love having you all dressed up.

Eating: You eat a 6 ounce bottle every three hours during the day.  You are doing well on your new formula.  We will start food at 6 months. We will start on Sunday due to the fact that you couldn't even keep pedialyte down on your half birthday.

Sleeping:  You sleep all night and we DO NOT go in to give you the pacifier.  Most of the time we turn off the monitor because you do wake up for a second or 2 just to scream and then go back to sleep.  You don't have a napping schedule and you need one.  You also like to sleep on your stomach.  It's hard to do with my work schedule.  And school lets you sleep on demand.  If you are asleep and there is a noise you automatically wake up to see what you are missing.  You love to be aware of everything.

Likes: being held, car seat, riding in the car, riding in the stroller, eating, the paci, baths, your brothers, watching people, smiling, knowing what is going on at all times, Mommy, Gammy, being on your stomach for a little bit, smiling, and laughing

Dislikes: having something go over your head (clothes), being strapped in the carseat, being woken up by a loud noise (brother), being disturbed/interrupted while eating has to be your most hated can't stand having the bottle removed while you are eating.

News this month: You are sitting using a tripod, but are very wobbly.  So cute.  You had your first illness...a little 12 hour bug.  It was just awful.  You threw up projectile style all over me, you, and Bennett.  It soaked the couch, and all our clothes.  We thought you were done because you were happy, but you vomited about 7-9 more times.  It was the saddest thing.  You couldn't even keep pedialyte down.  The nurse said I should take you to the ER, but I just couldn't take my tiny baby up there to all those germs.  You woke up happy and like your old self.  We headed to the doc today just to be sure.

I took these right after your first puke when I thought you were done and happy.  Turns out you were not happy nor done puking. :(

You are so beautiful and I just don't know what we did without you!!!

Fall Fever

Come on, FALL!!  I am ready for some cooler weather and I think it is coming this week! Please!  We've been enjoying having Neil has been so nice to have him home from Tulsa.  I don't want him to go back.  

We went to the Revel which is one of my favorite fall things to do.  It never disappoints.  Here are a few things we've been doing...

After our fall family gathering at Dianne's, Bennett came home and made a "No Girls Allowed" sign.  I think he saw Cousin Cody's sign and thought he needed one too!

This beauty had her 6 month pictures made (at 5 months) and I can't wait to see them!  This was just a sneak peek.

Bennett's bee sting turned into this mass of redness a week later.  He even called us from school to let us know it hurt. Neil spoke to him on the phone and said if he came home then he wouldn't get to play because when we are sick we have to stay in bed.  He figured he was OK to stay at school.  This past Friday he called us to tell us he couldn't hear out of his right ear.  Amy went and checked on him and he was upset.  Neil got to the school and whispered "booger pancakes" in his ear and he started laughing!  He said "oh, maybe it's my other ear!" hahahaha! 

Bennett exercised his artist skills ON THE BACK OF MY SEAT!

Bennett got to go to the Tech game and take picture with Champ.  Nana said he cheered for the bulldogs the entire game.  He also ate popcorn, hotdogs, candy, and whatever else he could get his hands on!

We had an adult night costume party where we left SK with a non-family sitter for the first time.  She did great and so did I!

Happy 24th, Chris!

We love grocery shopping at the mini Brookshire's.

That's my boy!

Sister's first Revel experience.

A very important client got to attend work with us on Thursday,  The power went out at Sarah Kathryn's school so Neil and I had to take turns keeping her at work.  This girl stayed in her carseat for a total of 5 minutes at each office.  It ain't easy working with an infant!

This big boy read a whole book on 10/9/14.  Proud mama!

Henry had to much fun at Mary Ellen's birthday party.

We enjoyed time with our baby girl while the boys went to Ruston for time with Nana and Granddad.

Fall get-together

I was so glad when Dianne decided to have everyone over for fajitas and fellowship.  Aunt Cloie's son and daughter-in-law were in town so that is always reason to get together.  Aunt Cloie, my grandmother's youngest sister, is looking fabulous these days!

me, Aunt C, and Sarah Kathryn

Henry was obviously not in the mood for pictures

Pumpkin Pickin' 2014

Fall is one of my favorites.  I love the cooler weather, everything pumpkin, the fall colors, and fall clothes.  It is nice to finally be able to go outside without being drenched in sweat in 2 seconds.  This is my favorite weather!!!  Pops takes the kids to pick out pumpkins every year at Akin's.  It is one of our favorite fall traditions. 2013    2012   2011  I had plans for them to all wear matching fall clothes, but we went right after school and it was hot and began to rain so I scratched it!

They love getting a wagon and picking out the perfect pumpkins.  It is so much fun!  I love watching the boys run around checking out the best pumpkins.  Henry would just throw any random pumpkin on the wagon not gently at all.  Bennett was more selective and looked at each pumpkin.

Muscle man!



Sarah Kathryn

Thanks, Pops!  We had so much fun!

My babies and me

Days of our lives

Henry reading a monster truck book to Sarah Kathryn.

I had to pick up this angel from school because he felt bad.

He hasn't fallen asleep on my in ages...I loved it, but hated that he was sick!

Super Swinging!

Oh, Henry and his underwear antics...I've never seen so many wrong ways to put on undies!

Un"bee"lievable Grandparent's Day

It's no secret that we love our grandparent's around here.  They are literally the best.  They do so much for the kids and love them like we do.  They act like grandparent's by giving them special treats and privileges that we don't...which is, after all, what they are supposed to do!

Neil and I couldn't do half the things we get to do without them.  We just take 1 special day to honor them and to show them how special they are to us!  We did a "bee" theme and it was a cinch.  It was so easy because I used all of Jennifer's bee stuff from her daughter's 1st "bee" day!  Love borrowing.

We served "bee-bee que" and even wore bee antennae head bands.  We love you, Gammy, Nana, Granddad, and Pops!!  And Carolyn (CC), too!


Nana and the sweet baby girl

Look how cute they are "beeing!"  (I can't stop)

Super easy, but not delicious
