Booked Our Vacation


It's official...I've finally booked our first family vacation!! We are so excited! We have been saving up for this trip since Bryson was born. Clay and I haven't been on a vacation together since our honeymoon. I think four years is long enough. This will be Bryson's first trip to the beach. I hope he will enjoy it as much as his daddy and I do.

Even with the oil spill going on in the Gulf, I still decided Gulf Shores is the best place. There is nothing like Alabama beaches :) If Bryson isn't that wild about the sand, the place we are staying at has two really nice pools. Not to mention going to the beach just to eat is a vacation in its self.

I've got a really busy rest of the week. Trying to finish the last details of Bryson's party. I'm very excited and sad at the same time. I can't believe how fast the time has gone by. He's turning into a little boy right before our eyes. I find myself just staring at him at night while he's asleep or when I'm rocking him. Before I know it he'll be 25, coming home and telling me he's getting married. HA!!!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. The 4th of July is coming up on Sunday. It's one of my favorite holidays. I've got several outfits for Bryson to wear. So we'll be showcasing them in the next few days.

What's a momma gotta do to get a good picture?

I've spent the last few days trying to get some good pictures of Bryson for his birthday card. Ya'll he's a mess!!!! I think he knew that these pictures were of some importance because he was irritable and not very cooperative about 80% of the time. Ya'll I could even get a good smile out of him, which is very unusual since he's always got a smile on his face.











I was able to get a few good shots. I really hope the card turns out good. I'll post the finished product when it's completed. I can't believe his party is less than 4 weeks away. This past year has gone by soooo incredibly fast. My baby is about to be ONE!!! Where did the time go???

11 Months


Bryson - you are Eleven months old today!!!!!!

What have you been up to these days???


You weigh around 23 pounds
You are in size 4 diapers and 12-18 month clothes


  • You are completely on table food except for a few jars of baby food that I'm going to try and get you to finish up this week. Not sure if I'll be able to because you love eating what everyone else has on their plates.

  • You are completely OFF the bottle. Yeah for Bryson!!! It's taken a couple of different sippy cups to find the one you like. We've been through several and this week I think we finally found a winner!

  • You are still sleeping 10-11 hours at night. And taking one morning and one afternoon nap lasting about 30-60 minutes. You are in the best mood after your afternoon nap. And you are usually in the bed by 7 or 8

  • You only have those two bottom teeth, but I think some are trying to come in. You have been drooling and pulling at your mouth alot the last week.

  • You would rather stand than sit ALL the time which wears mommy and daddy out! Thank goodness for your jumper and walker. Still no crawling, but you pull your knees up all the time. Just when we think you are about to take off you will look up at us and then lay back down. You have taken a few steps and I believe you'll be walking and skipping the whole crawling phase.



  • You talk, babble, giggle, and yell constantly. You can say "dad-da, ma-ma, and dye-dye (which means bye-bye. haha!).

  • You love listening to music. You get that honestly! When we are in church and they start singing and playing you are in the pew rocking back and forth. It's so cute! Anytime there is music playing on the TV you stop what your doing and just have that mesmerized look on your face. I really hope you'll be musically talented.

  • You like to play peek-a-boo

  • You are still enjoying your bath time. I believe you would stay in there for hours if we let you. You love to just kick and splash around. I really believe getting you in the pool this summer is going to be alot of fun! At least I hope so.

  • You have started mimicking what other people say and do.

Happy Father's Day

Happy first Father's Day to my baby's daddy - Clay! I love you so much and am so proud of the father you've become. Bryson is so lucky to have you as his daddy! I couldn't ask for a better example for our son. You have waited for this day for a long time and I'm so happy to celebrate it with you. You have been nothing short of amazing and we are very blessed!!!

I let Bryson make a card for his daddy for his first father's day. We had so much fun making it. I know there's not too much to it, but Bryson had a blast!!


I held Bryson's hand and we wrote out the Love, Bryson. It turned out so cute. His daddy was thrilled when we got his card.


Happy Father's Day to my dad, step-dad, and father-in-law. I love you all very much and am blessed to have each of you in my life!!! I couldn't ask for 3 better men :)


Happy Father's Day to all the father's out there today and for the father's to be!!!

It's the dream you give up for someone else
It’s being strong when you’re weak yourself
Though it tears you up you trust again
Hatred loses and forgiveness wins
You turn your cheek when you want to fight. Sell all you have and lay down your life
And when hope is gone you’re the one who keeps holding on
That’s what love is. When you give until there’s nothing left.
And it makes you give the very best. That's what love is.
It can make you laugh and make you cry
It can let you down and lift you up so high
When you find the only reason left to live
That’s what love is

Happy 4th anniversary to my wonderful and amazing husband. I love you so much and cannot wait to see what the Lord has in store for our next 40 years!

First Time in the Pool

I guess I can say summer has officially started at the W House. After weeks of 80 and 90 degree weather we were finally able to take Bryson to the pool today. I was a little nervous that he might not like it, but ya'll I think I have a little swimmer on my hands!


Me and Bryson


He loved playing in his float. The canopy that went over it was a joke. It would never stay up.


Daddy and Bryson having fun


Our future swimmer for the Auburn Swim Team


Isn't he the cutest thing?


Wiped Out


We were so glad Bryson enjoyed the pool. Between my parents and Clay's parents both having pools I think this little one is going to be waterlogged all summer. ha!!

Contagious Laugh

Bryson has been laughing for months and it's the cutest thing! I think all babies are so adorable and cute when they laugh. He always brings a smile to my face and gets me laughing along with him every time! Well I was finally able to catch him on video the other day and I wanted to share it with ya'll.

Don't pay any attention to my voice, but it was the only way I could get him to laugh :)
