23 Months

Bryson - you are 23 months old today!

I can't believe in just 30 short days my baby will be TWO! I can't begin to tell ya'll how fast this year has gone by.

You weigh around 30 pounds
You wear a size 2T and just a few 24month
You are in a size 7 shoe

You are growing and changing so fast.
Just in the last few weeks I've noticed how much older you are getting.

You have always been a talker. But now you are starting to talk more in sentences which makes it easier to communicate.

You are still throwing lots of tantrums. Makes me think we are still not over the terrible two's.

Your favorite thing to eat right now is "butter sandwich"...translation PB&J and chicken nuggets. You also love apple juice and applesauce.

You have started saying "Please" and "Thank You" on a regular basis. Next I want to start on adding the "Ma'am" and "Sir".

Your answer for everything is "NO!" I guess I need to work on "Yes" before I work on anything else.

You absolutely LOVE going to church and school. I love all your teachers and can't thank them enough for what they do. You came home the other day and told me about the new girl in your class, "Arianna." You say her name alot which scares me. I don't think I'm ready for you to start liking girls just yet. Ha!!

You have started using a napkin at the table without me or daddy even teaching you. I guess you really do pay attention to us even when we don't even realize. It's the cutest thing to watch you wipe your hands and mouth.

Your favorite thing to do besides playing outside is coloring. When you ask to color you will say "Elmo color mama, Elmo color." And repeat it over and over.

You are growing up and changing sooo fast. I can really tell your turning into a little boy. You have the funniest personality and I love that so much about you!

I love you my sweet, sweet baby boy!

NOT the Father's Day We Planned

This was not quite the Father's Day I had planned for Clay. For some crazy reason and out of the blue, Bryson woke up with a 102 fever this morning, but no other symptoms. Of course church was out of the question and so was getting together with our families.

This was pretty much how we spent our day. In the bed, with Bryson watching movies and me watching the U.S. Open. I'm a closet golf fan for those of you that don't know me personally.

Clay was able to go over and visit with his dad for a few hours which I was happy about.

This was Clay's father's day gift. I got them while they were on sale at Snapfish during Memorial Day weekend. I thought they turned out soo cute and Clay was really surprised! I got him one for the house and the other to take to work (which by the way we are in his last year of school! YEAH!!!)

And I just had to put this picture on here. Bryson made this at school. I don't know if you can read what it says, but it had me in tears. I thought it was really sweet. And of course Clay loved it!

So in a nut shell that was our Father's Day. No exactly like I planned, but somethings never are :)

Happy Father's Day to my dad and stepdad! I love you both very much.

Surprise Trip to Atlanta

Clay surprised me with an overnight trip to Atlanta for our 5 year anniversary yesterday. I was completely shocked and excited to say the least! He and I both are Atlanta Braves fans and so he planned for us to see a game while we were over there.

We stayed at the Melia Hotel. The place was beautiful and our room was amazing.

Some of the Atlanta Braves warming up before the game.

Our seats were awesome. That's Jason Heyward, Atl's rightfielder!

Me and my hubby

The weather was wonderful. It wasn't to hot or to chilly. I thought this was a beautiful picture of the sky.

Y'all are probably wondering what on earth this is??? Brace yourselves...

Deep Fried Oreo's!!!

These little things were YUM-O! And I ate all 4 of them in a matter of minutes. I can't even being to describe how delicious these were. From now on where ever these are sold, I will be purchasing! Ha!!

This couple got engaged during the game. The guy popped the question on one of the side screens. They were just sitting a few rows down from us. So sweet :)

The Braves weren't able to pull out a win, but we did get to see several home runs!

This was the view of downtown Atlanta from our hotel room. Isn't the view amazing?

I hated that we only got to stay about 24 hours, but it was such a surprise and nice to be able to just spend some time with Clay. This will be a trip I will always remember!

5 Years!!!

I set out on a narrow way, many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road

But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
I couldn't see how every sign pointed straight to you

Every long lost dream led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars

Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true

That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you!

Happy 5th Anniversary Clay! I'm so in love with you even more today. Our journey has been amazing so far and I can't wait to see what the Lord has instore for us over the next 25 years.
I Love You!!!!!

Texas Vacation Part One

Last month we took a trip out to Texas to visit my dad and his family. They don't get a chance to see or come to visit us very often, and since Clay was out of school for the summer we knew this would be as good a time as any to go out and visit. There's a lot involved when planning a 10 1/2 hour trip (we decided we were going to drive instead of fly this time) with a toddler. Bryson has always done well riding in the car, but we weren't sure how he would do for this long road trip. Let's just say the ride out there was better than the ride back, but I'll get to that later.

We ended up leaving straight after church on Sunday which was just around Bryson's nap time.

This was him in the car in Walmart's parking lot before we even left our town :)He ended up taking a 3 hour nap which was perfect because we had planned to be on the road about 5-6 hours.

I know I've mentioned this before, but for those of you with toddlers, the portable DVD player is a MUST have! I think we watched so much Bob and Larry that Clay and I could recite all 8 movies. Ha!

We stopped in Meridian, MS to get out and stretch our legs. I posted this picture because I thought it was just too cute! I love my two boys!!!

This was the big bridge in Vicksburg, MS. We were traveling through there about a week after the flooding. I've got some other pictures from on our way back home I'll post later. I really couldn't believe all the flooding. Most of the roads in Vicksburg were shut down.

We finally made it to Monroe, LA and found a hotel there.

Now this was the part I was nervous about and dreading. Bryson has never stayed in a hotel before so I wasn't too sure how it would go. I fell asleep pretty early due to the fact that I had worked the night before and had been up for over 24 hours. So needless to say I was completely exhausted. Bryson ended up in the bed with me, but Clay said he didn't go to sleep until about 10:30pm which is soooo past his bedtime. Oh well!

We finally got on the road about 11am. This is the view from where Bryson was. Doesn't this look like the life? Watching your favorite show, snacking on a slice of cheese and drink in hand.

We finally made it to my dad's house just before 5pm. We were all pretty exhausted, so I didn't get any pictures of the rest of our day. My dad and Amy were thrilled to see Bryson. They couldn't believe how much he had grown since their last visit.

On Tuesday Dad and Amy thought it would be fun to take us all out to Ft. Worth to go on the train ride through the city. It's times like these that make me wish I lived in a bigger city with so many fun things that I could do with Bryson.

Grandpa and Bryson waiting on the train

There was a river across from us and you could see the turtles and ducks. Bryson was fascinated by all of it!

Grandpa, Bryson and Grandma Amy

This was another one of those pictures that I just had to post. Clay took this one with his iphone. I thought it was precious. I can't believe my baby is turning TWO in less than six weeks. He is growing up to be such a little man!

And because y'all know what a HUGE football fan I am I had to post this picture of the Dallas Cowboys new stadium. It really is something. Clay and I are itching to get back out there during football season to watch a game.

I'll try and post the 2nd half of our trip tomorrow. I'm taking a very short overnight trip to the Gulf with my friend Mary. She and I both need to get away for a day and just relax.

A Counting Surprise!

A few weeks ago I finally caught Bryson counting on video. He's known how to count to ten for several months and I just haven't been able to get it on tape until the other day.

Y'all will have to excuse mine AND my son's southern voice :) Bless his heart, he gets it honestly! And I had to cut the video short because Bryson got so excited he stood up in the tub and I didn't find it appropriate to show you him in his birthday suit. Ha!

I also did a Mother's Day post. I'm catching up little by little!

Something Borrowed...Something Blue

I did a little reading while I was on my blogging break. I actually needed to catch up since I was a month behind according to my schedule. I don't know what I was thinking trying to keep up with a reading schedule when all I do is follow around an almost two year old all over the place. Ha!

I did however skip over Redeeming Love which is what I intended to read for the month of April. That book was just entirely too long and with everything that happened here in Alabama during that time, reading was kinda' put on the back burner. I think Redeeming Love will be one I read on the way to the beach in the next few months.

So this was the book I picked up to read instead. I have read Something Borrowed a loooonnnng time ago, probably back when it first came out. But I couldn't quite remember all the details and since they were also making a movie I thought this would be the perfect book to start off the summer.

Emily Giffin did NOT disappoint! And I have to say that the movie was pretty much in line with the book, which I love!

Since I finished up Something Borrowed within a few weeks I picked up Something Blue next. I really enjoyed this one more than the first. And I'm hoping they will also turn this one into a movie.

I think I ended up finishing this book within a week, which is saying a lot for me! But it was one I couldn't put down. I forgot how much I loved Emily's books. I think I might have to put Heart of the Matter somewhere in the mix. I hear it's pretty good too.

Have any of y'all read Emily Giffin's books and which ones did you enjoy?

Hope y'all are having a wonderful Monday :)

Coming Back...

Hey there blogger friends and family...

I can't believe it's been a month since I last posted. There has been alot going on in the W house that I can't wait to catch you up on. I've also got to post about the 2 books that I finished and my sweet little boy's 22 month post (that's mostly for the family :) I don't know when or if I will get it all typed out in the next few days. Clay has been gone to a basketball camp all week and will be home today, so we're ready to spend some much needed time with hubby/daddy!

I hope y'all are doing well. Again, I can't believe I've been away from the blogging world this long. But the time away was very much needed!

Can't wait to catch y'all up on my crazy life :)
