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!

Teddy Bear Picnic-Henry

We had such a great time at Henry's teddy bear picnic.  I am so glad that it was Henry's snack week so I could do something special!  Mrs. Rose told me they usually have honey sandwiches so I made teddy bear shaped honey sandwiches, teddy bear trail mix, and gummy bears!  They kids loved bringing their bears to the table and they LOVED the gummy bears.

I loved these little picnic bags...I ran them right through the printer.  I didn't even know it would work!

Sweet thang,

Henry and the only bear we could find.  I tossed all the others before we moved.

Henry and me


Such a cute little class!

And just for fun...

Sarah Kathryn is 5 months old!

Our beautiful girl is already 5 months old!  How on earth?  Time flies when you're having fun and even when you're exhausted!


Doctor appointment:  none this month

Clothes: You wear size 2 diapers and I have a feeling we are about to be in a 3.  You are wearing mostly 6-9 month clothes.  I got to put you in a couple long bubbles...they are my absolute favorite.  You just look so cute in anything, though.


Eating: You eat a 5 ounce bottle every three hours.  You are doing well on your new formula.  We will start food at 6 months. Dr. C said they are wanting people to wait until 6 months now...fine by me.  Baby food is not my favorite thing.

Sleeping:  No more swaddling.  In fact, after I wrote the 4 month post I stopped swaddling you.  Girl, you need to sleep!  You don't nap much AT ALL.  Lakasha said you might sleep 20 minutes a morning at school.  At home, you like to know what is going on all the time.  Last night was the first night I did not get up to feed you.  The past 2 nights I've fed you and you only took about 2 ounces.  So, you don't even need to eat!  You just get up.  I turned off the monitor last night and you were just fine and dandy this morning.  You sleep with both arms up above your head and always have.  That's how the boys sleep, too.

Likes: being held, car seat, riding in the car, riding in the stroller, eating, the paci (sometimes), baths, your brothers, watching people, smiling, knowing what is going on at all times, Mommy, being on y our stomach for a little bit, 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 thing...you can't stand having the bottle removed while you are eating, and being on your stomach for more than a little bit.

News this month: You are busy!  You do not lie still at all.  You roll and move around on the floor and in the bed.  You are still our sweet baby girl that we love so much!!!

Bulldog Flag Football

We had an unusually cool morning for our first Bulldog Flag Football game.  It was such a delight.  We took Henry to his soccer shots and before we went to football we had to stop at the house to get pants and jackets!  We ended up staying outside the entire rest of the day.

Brother was such a good boy, he just played or sat in the chair and played on my phone,

Go team!


Sweetest girl and sweetest Daddy

We even have sweet t-shirts to wear to the games.  They say "fear the bite!"

Loves. the. Mouthpiece.







Oh, and here's my dad who walked across the field during the game. :(


Our second game wasn't near as pleasant.  Aunt Becky came and I was so glad she did!  We had to go all the way to North Desoto.  It was painfully hot.  

Bennett was talking about how he was going to beat up the griffins and I said "no, we aren't going to beat them up." His coach said "Oh, sorry mom!...we told them that!"

Anyway, Bennett was doing such a great job blocking the probably 5th graders on the other team. One kid at least 5 inches taller than Bennett threw him on the ground because Bennett was such a fabulous blocker.  Mama Bear was not happy.  But, Bennett got right up and ran over to the kid and got in his face (in a football way)!  I was so proud!!!  He was running off the field and I was saying "GREAT JOB BENNETT, You did your job! yesss!  You did GREAT!"  I was that mom.

And do you know what he did?

He looked at me with a mad face and COVERED HIS EARS!!!!!  That stinker!
 hahahahah!  I love my biggest boy!!

The main thing I want my kids to learn from sports is how to be a humble winner, to play fair, and to lose with dignity.  We are teaching these lessons all the time.  I just don't want anyone to mess with my babies.

Happy 65th, Dad!

We had a fun-filled, LOUD evening for Dad's 65th.  We went to Roma and it was delish!  They put us in a back room probably because we had 6 adults and 5 kids.  After a little while of us all being there they closed the doors to our room.  SK had a 10 minute scream fest and the boys ran around like hoodlums.  Thankfully, no one could see us. I wish Neil would have been there!!!  Sarah was sweet to hold Sarah Kathryn and Carolyn took the boys to the restroom for me.  It takes a village.  Dwight, my dad's friend, said "whew, I'm not used to all this noise." He left right after he ate.  ha.


The boys shopped for Pops' birthday gifts and he ended up with some good stuff.  Root beer which he loves, a baseball night light, a monkey balloon, a gun/spur set, and a mini fishing pole.  After they gave him the gifts he said "what am I supposed to do with all this?"  It's the thought that counts, Pops.



Dwight was a huge help!  He even cut up Henry's food.




Pops and the 3 beautiful babies!

Carolyn just needed Mary Collins and this picture would be complete

Here's the LOUD crew minus Dwight, who left early.

While Daddy's Away...

While we are sad and lonely while Daddy is away...we do keep busy.  

Bennett got to enjoy his first flag football practices.  I realized he looks like a little baby out there with all those first graders.  They all wear Under Armour and he wears mini Boden.  He is growing up too fast I tell ya.  He is 1 of 3 kindergartners on the team.  We thought we were playing with our old friends from FB, but the Y put him on his school team.  Neil said this is good because he remembers when his mom signed him up for Cub Scouts with a friend he didn't attend school with.  He said he would wear his uniform to school the day before his school friends did.  He would sit alone as all his friends got picked up for Cub Scouts! haha!  Poor kid.  We are sticking with the school team.


He LOVES his mouth piece.  He has also changed his favorite color to orange,
Henry got to spend the weekend with Nana and Granddad.  He had so much fun playing in a box, doing puzzles, eating at Sundown, and getting plenty of attention.  It did make me happy when he said he was ready to come home to see Mommy! :)  Thanks, Nana and Granddad for taking care of our sweet boy.
Nana said he did the whole puzzle by himself!
I got away for a fun girls night while all of our husbands were at College Football Island.
Leigh was supporting her brewery!

Lindsay, Sarah, me, Nikki, and Leigh

Bennett was excited to go to Bass Pro

Daddy is home and I finally got a good night of sleep.  This mama is EXHAUSTED!
