Our Weekend in Pictures

We had a pretty laid back weekend. Not a lot going on (which is a good thing). Sometimes it's nice not having so much to do and just enjoying time with my little family.

I didn't get around to blogging at all last week. We spent the whole week working on potty training. It's going good, but I don't think I'm ready to blog about that yet, but I will eventually. :) We took Bryson's to the aquarium for his birthday. We visited my dad and his family out in Texas. Bryson had his three year check-up and I want to do another day in the life post now that I have two! So I have a lot to catch up on!

But back to our weekend....Friday was probably the only day that we didn't have anything to do except for my physical therapy that morning. We hung out at home for the most part and watched the Olympics that night. I am borderline obsessed with the Olympics! I just love them. I could sit on the couch and stuff my face with food and just watch it for hours. Ha! And I'm glad that Clay enjoys it too. Not quite as much as I do. He's not wild about the gymnastics but he knows that's one of my favorite events and so he'll let me watch it without huffing and puffing.   

Jaxon enjoyed watching his first Olympics. 

On Saturday we went over to my in-laws to celebrate my FIL's birthday. Nana made baked spaghetti with salad and breadsticks. It was really good. We love us some baked spaghetti. Clay and I eat it about once a week. It's really simple and quick. 

Bryson and Owen sitting at their Cars table. I couldn't get everyone in the picture from where I was sitting and sweet Jaxon lounged out on the pool chair while we ate. He was such a good baby. 

We are BIG game lovers around here and my BIL found us a new game, ladder golf. I'm not good at explaining how it work, but we had so much fun playing. And it's something us girls can play too.  

Pawpaw and Jaxon

Owen and Bryson with Uncle Jimmy and Aunt Bebe kicking the miniature beach balls around. I wished I would have gotten a picture of the boys' faces. They were both beet red after running around all evening. 

Sunday we went to my in-laws church. They celebrated his birthday with lunch after church. And then went back over to my in-laws so Bryson could swim and spend time with Aunt Erica and Uncle Seth before they had to go back home. 

Jaxon had a rough morning so I didn't get to take any pictures during the day. 

And last night Bryson wanted to watch Veggietales The Pirate Movie and I was soooo excited! I can't tell y'all the last time he's wanted to sit in our bedroom after his bath and watch a movie. And what made it even better was him asking Clay and I if we could lay down with him and watch the movie too. Oh how I've missed these special moments with him. We need to start doing them more often again. 

I hope y'all had a wonderful weekend.

July 16: We stopped at the Duck Commander store before we left home. Clay and I LOVE us some Duck Dynasty.

July 19: Our friends Shawn and Katie came over and brought their adorable little man Ethan. He was born just a few weeks before Jaxon. I loved getting to see them.

July 20: Clay can always get Jaxon to laugh. It's the cutest thing!

July 21: My baby turned THREE years old today! After work I went by Krispy Kreme and got us some doughnuts to have for breakfast. Can you tell he's enjoying himself!?!

Happy Birthday Bryson

Happy Birthday to my sweet baby boy! I can't believe you are turning THREE today!! Daddy, mommy and baby brother love you so very much. :)

birthday eve

My sweet little Bryson~

I can't believe you will be THREE tomorrow! Where has the time gone? I remember like it was yesterday getting a call from Dr. H to let us know that we would be having you a day earlier than what we had planned. I was nervous and excited all at the same time! I couldn't wait to hold you and see your precious little face. You have been all I ever could have imagined and you have brought me so much happiness and joy over the last 36 months!

You have the kindest heart I know for a little boy. You are always so concerned for others when they are sick or hurt or crying. You always want to make it better. You love to give kisses and hugs. And you still let me sing to you at night before you go to bed. I soak up every one of those moments because before I know it you'll be at that age where you don't want to be seen with your momma anymore and will definitely not want me to hug and kiss you in public.

You are always the life of the party. Always making us laugh! You can be so serious in one breath and then say something the next minute that has us rolling in the floor. You vocabulary has just flourished and I can't believe some of the things you say. Your favorite thing to say right now is "On you mark, get set, go!" You probably say it at least 100 times a day!

You are so smart. You know your ABC's, your colors and numbers. You love to work puzzles and you have such a good memory. You learned your very first bible verse this year and I can't wait to start teaching you more.

You have been such a momma's boy up until a few months ago. Since your daddy has been home this summer you have loved spending time with him which I adore! I know there are so many things that he will need to teach you later on in life that I can't. 

Your world got kinda' turned upside down a few months ago when we welcomed little brother into our lives. You have been amazing with him. You adore him so much and are very protective of him. I know Jaxon will be so proud to have you as his big brother. 

I am so amazed by you every day. Some days I just look at you and can't believe you are mine. I'm so thankful that the Lord has allowed me to be your momma. I pray for you every day and that the Lord will use you in an awesome way. I know He has big plans in store for your life and I can't wait to watch.

I Love You So Much, 

Wednesday, July 18, 2012


The day I found out Bryson was going to be a boy I was over the moon excited! I had always thought of myself as a "boy mom," and was thrilled that Clay would have a boy to call his own. To teach him how to play sports, someone he could watch Auburn football games with and to show him what it means to be a Godly man and how to raise a family of his own one day.

Raising Bryson has been one of the major highlights of my life. He has taught me so much about myself in his 3 little years of life. He has helped me become a better person and has taught me the meaning of what unconditional love really is.

When we got pregnant with baby #2 I had secretly hoped for a girl. I had seen several of my friends with their girls and saw how much fun it would be to dress a little girl up and do all those fun girly things. Plus I had always dreamed of having 3 children: 2 boys and 1 girl with the girl being the middle child. Ha!

So when we found out Jaxon was a boy I'm not going to lie I cried for about 15 minutes. But then somewhere along I-65 on our way home it hit me... I'm about to be a mother to two boys! And my immediate prayer to the Lord was "please let them be the best of friends! Help them to grow up together loving one another and lifting each other up." It was at that moment I realized what a special privilege it was going to be to raise these two boys and I never looked back at the thought of having a girl.

I'll admit I was a little nervous about how Bryson would handle a little brother moving in on his territory. Would he be upset with me when I would have to comfort Jaxon and not be able to hold him too? Would he know that I loved his just as much even though there was another baby in our lives?

Have ya'll heard that term, a picture is worth a thousand words? I'll let these speak for themselves...

From the moment we brought Jaxon home, Bryson has taken on the "big brother role" like a champ. He loves Jaxon more than any toy car he owns! He is protective, loving, kind, gentle (well maybe not always gentle. Ha!) and a million more adjectives that I can't think of right now at 3 o'clock in the morning.

I have never been more proud than I am right now in my life. These two little boys are the most amazing gift I have ever received. My heart is so FULL!!!

I know one day, not to far down the road, these two will have their share of fights and arguments. I'm sure they will butt heads more than once. But my prayer for them will always be that they will always love each other, that they will remain the best of friends long after Clay and I are gone and that they will always be there for one another no matter what.

"From the fullness of His grace we have received one blessing after another." John 1:16

what's on Bryson's bookshelf

I was inspired by Erin from Blue-Eyed Bride on her post about her "boy mom's bookshelf" and I thought it would be fun to see what's on Bryson's bookshelf right now. 

I started collecting books for Bryson right after we found out I was pregnant. I love to read and had prayed that my children would enjoy it as much as I do. And he does!

I'm hoping our collection will grow as both of the boys get older. And I can't wait to start introducing Jaxon to some of his brother's favorite books!

I've been reading "Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb" and "Are You My Mother?" since Bryson was a baby. I would say these are his favorite. He can recite them word for word now when we read them. 

This was another one of Bryson's favorites when he was little. We don't read it much anymore, but hopefully I can start reading it to Jaxon very soon. I miss reading this one. 

 Currently these are Bryson's favorite. We read these at least 3-4 times a week. He also likes Green Eggs and Ham and Fox in Socks.

We also love The Wheels on the Bus and one of my favorites I Love You Through and Through. I could read that one everyday!

And of course we can't forget about Bob and Larry! Bryson has LOVED the Veggietales since he was a baby. And I love that these books always have such a good meaning!

Erin posted about some great books I want to add to the boy's collection. The How Do Dinosaurs books and Laura Numeroff's collection. I also want to add Yertle the Turtle

We need more books about cars and fish. Those are things he's into right now. So what books are your little ones into?

life planner 2012

Today I'm linking up with Meredith for her 2nd annual Erin Condren Life Planner link-up. If ya'll didn't get on the bandwagon last year, it's not to late to jump on and join this year! All of the concerns most people had last year has been addressed and there are so many more designs to choose from.

When I saw on Twitter that the 2012-2013 planners where coming out in late June, I marked my calendar and at 2pm I was on my computer placing my order. Ha!

I don't think I will ever use another product. This year you also have the choice to choose between a 12 month or 18 month calendar. I went with the 18 month calendar again this year because I'm big at planning ahead for things.

So without further adieu...my life planner for 2012-2013! (sorry my pictures are so bad, i had to use my iphone)

I really wanted to get one of the planners with a picture on the front, but we didn't have a good family picture of all four of us that I really liked. So I hunted around the site for a while until I stumbled upon the "viva espana - chevron" in the bright color. This picture does not do it justice. The colors are so bright!

One of the new features are the LAMINATED monthly tabs! This is probably my favorite feature of the whole planner.

There are 240 stickers to highlight birthdays, special events, appointments, and even a sheet of blank stickers. I had several stickers left over from last years planner so I'm using those to document Jaxon's monthly birthdays. :)

There is a "keep it together" folder and a zipper pouch where I keep my extra stickers, gift tags and stationary. 

And last year when all the talk about which pens were the best to use, I jumped on that bandwagon too and purchased these Profile pens by Paper mate from Target. Can ya'll tell my type A personality is showing? Ha!

If you haven't ordered your Erin Condren Life Planner I encourage you to hop on over to her website and design a planner that works for you. I PROMISE, you won't be disappointed!

Thank you Meredith for hosting this link-up! Can't wait to get a peak at the other planners :) Happy Monday!!!

jaxon clay {3 months}

jaxon you are three months old today!

i know i say this every month, but i can't believe how fast you are growing up! you change more and more everyday. before i know it i'll be planning your one year birthday party. 

you are on your own routine now (which is wonderful for my type A personality. Ha!). you take a bottle five times a day. you wake up at 7am on the dot every morning like clockwork. you take a good morning nap and then two catnaps throughout the rest of the day. 

you are such a happy baby! you love when we talk to you and you will talk back. i think you love your brother more than anyone. you are always so excited when we comes over and talks to you. you will just kick your legs and wave your arms around. my prayer is that ya'll will be the best of friends for life. 

i think i can pretty much say that the passy will not be something you will ever want. you love sucking on your thumb and it's so cute. you'll put it in your mouth and then rest your other four fingers over your nose. it's the sweetest thing i've ever seen!

you love to be rocked which warms my heart. i hope that you'll want to be rocked longer than your big brother. i feel like it's my special one on one time with you. 

i am in love with you more and more everyday! i never would have dreamed that i could love two boys as much as i love you and your brother. my heart is so full and i am so blessed!

~ i love you to the moon and back ~ momma

Stats for the month:

clothes - 3-6 months
