To Grandpa's House We Go {Part 1}

I'm finally getting around to posting about our trip to visit my dad and his family. Better late than never is my new motto. I think I've mentioned that before. Ha! I'll go ahead and let y'all know this is more of a post for me and my family to document/remember our trip. And it has a ton of pictures!

We left out the day Jaxon turned 3 months. And I wished I would have remembered to take a picture of our luggage. CRAZYYY!!! I had no idea 2 adults and 2 little people could have that much stuff for a week. I knew this trip would probably not go as good as I would have liked it since Jaxon hates riding in the car. So I knew there would be lots of crying and lots of stops. But driving was better and cheaper than the alternative.

We made it all the way to Shreveport the first day. Bryson was so excited to get to stay in a hotel. He loved it! This is only his second time and he was all over the place. I love the picture above of the boys. I still can't get over the fact that I have TWO boys!
We got into Arlington a little after lunch. And I'm such a bad daughter that I didn't get a picture of my dad with the boys when we first got there. To be honest I'm really trying to balance taking pictures and being in the moment. Not to mention it's a little hard with two now.

We had dinner at Fuzzy's which is an awesome Mexican restaurant. It's Clay's favorite place to eat when we go out there. This time I ventured out and got the fish tacos. They were actually really good. And there fried potatoes and refried beans are delicious.
Bryson had the best time playing with Kristyn. The built a railroad park, barns, towers, racetrack. You name it he wanted to build it. And I've got to find out where my step mom found this blocks. Would be a great gift from Santa. ;) ;)

On our second day the boys played in the pool. B loved the smaller pool that attached to the bigger one. It has a fountain that shoots water out the middle and he would put his cars around the top and race them.

We also got to visit my grandparents out in Frisco. They enjoyed getting to see the boys. This was there first time meeting Jaxon and they haven't gotten to see B in over a year. I was so glad we were able to see them and visit for a little while.
I did my research and found out there was an IKEA less than 5 miles from my grandparents house. We don't have one in AL and the closest one is in Atlanta so I let the crew know we had to stop by there on our way home. I was looking for some cheap white picture frames to hang in the boys rooms. Of course they were out of white, but I did get several black ones and decided I could spray paint them white. 

After looking around in there I wished Alabama would get one. They had some really great things and at a very decent price. I could have spent hours in there.
Bryson loved this spot on the fireplace. So my dad and step mom made him a pallet to lay on. He's such a ham!

Well this wraps up the first few days. The next post will have LOTS more pics. We did a lot of fun things with the boys while we were out there. Not sure when I'll get to it. We have several changes going on with our little family. All exciting, but might take some getting adjusted too. More to come on that!

Happy Monday!!!

So Long Summer

So I know summer isn't officially over, but it has come to an end for us. We started back to school today! Bryson was really excited to get back and so was mommy. Ha! He was ready to see all his friends and his teachers. That's all he's talked about the last two weeks.

I got a head start last night and packed B's lunch and his bag for school. We had to add several things this go round. I packed a few extra clothes since we are potty training. I was nervous about him going back and not being 100% potty trained, but Amanda said he did great and the first thing he told me when I went to pick him up was that he tee-tee'd in the potty at school. :) And of course the proud momma in me stopped on the way home and got him a vanilla milkshake.

It was a little weird when I got back home after dropping Bryson off to only see this little man. It's been four long months since I've had just one and years since I've had one this small all to myself. I love my big boy, but I think I'm going to enjoy getting to spend a few hours of alone time with this little guy.

Do you think he missed his little brother?

I can't believe we are starting another year of school. It won't be too long before he'll be starting pre-school and then he'll be off to "big" school. Although I love getting just a short break to get things done around the house, I know one day I'm going to miss his sweet face asking me to watch another episode of "Octonauts" or listening to him play with Lightening McQueen and Mater. I am so blessed to get to spend so much time with the boys. Heaven knows what I'll do when they are both gone off to school.

Let it Rain

We finally made it to church today for the first time as a family of FOUR! It's been almost six months since I've been (bed rest, arrival of Jaxon and recovering from the broken ankle) and WOW what a powerful and moving service!

We had 8 baptisms in our service and in the prior service had a lady that was 84 years old baptized! What an awesome God we serve!

Lately I've talked about what a roller coaster ride of emotions our family has been on and this past week we experienced it again. But y'all, while Clay and I have been on that roller coaster the Lord has shown Himself in ways I have never experienced Him before! This last week God has reminded us that he is in control! That no matter what storms we face He will see us through. When we feel like giving up He rains down His grace and mercy and shows us just how powerful He is.

Today was Jaxon's first time going to church and he did so well! I dropped him off in the nursery and even though I've been there before with Bryson it broke my heart to leave him. But the ladies loved him and said he did great!

Mark 11:24 has been our family verse over the last few weeks. And I can truly tell you I have watched that verse come to life. We serve a MIGHTY and BIG God! I don't always understand His ways, but I know He is watching over us and will always have our best interest at heart.

At the end of the service we sang this short eleven word verse and what power those eleven words had on my heart today.

Let it rain, let it rain
Open the floodgates of heaven. 

Happy Sunday Y'all!

jaxon clay {4 months}

jaxon, you are four months old today!

you have grown so much over this last month. every day i look at your sweet little face and would love to have a million more just like you, but mommy and daddy have decided you will be our caboose unless the Lord decides to be humorous!

you are such a sweet and happy baby. you never fuss or cry. you are always content with whatever is going on around you. 

your laugh is the most precious sound. it makes my heart melt. i could listen to it all day. 

you are still on a good routine. you wake up around 8am for your first bottle and then you eat every three hours after that. you will take two good naps a day and one little cat nap after lunch. your last bottle is around 7-8pm and then we put you to bed and do it all over again the next morning. 

you have started this new thing where you will sing yourself to sleep. it doesn't matter if i'm rocking you or i've laid you down in your crib, you will start humming and it's just adorable. and you still love to be rocked which mommy enjoys very much!

you've been on your first road trip and spent the night in a hotel just a few weeks ago. we went out to Texas to visit Grandpa and Grandma Amy and all your great aunts and great grandparents. you didn't do so well on the way out there, but it got better on the way back home.   

you haven't rolled over yet, but i think it might happen in the next few weeks. you like laying on your side, so i'm sure it will happen very soon. 

~i love you to the moon and back ~ momma

Stats for the month:

weight: 13pounds 6ounces

length: 24inches

diapers: size 2

clothes: 3-6 months

Turtles, Sharks and Fish Oh My!

With the addition to our family in April and breaking my ankle the day before Jaxon's birth, I really didn't have much time to plan a birthday party for Bryson. The momma in me was disappointed in myself with not getting it together and putting my big girl panties on and giving my sweet little boy a party, but I just couldn't find the energy or the time to give him the party I thought he desereved. Clay and I talked about it a few  months before his birthday and thought it would be fun to take him somewhere just the 3 of us and spend the day with just him.
Bryson is really into fish and sharks, dolphins and whales right now so we thought the Chattanooga Aquarium in Tennessee would be the best place to take him. He was so excited the night before and all he could talk about was seeing Nemo! :) I think we watch Nemo at least 3 times a day if not more.
Clay's grandmother kept Jaxon for us so that Clay and I could spend all our time with Bryson. I've realized now with having two how important it is to try and find that time to spend one on one with the older child so they are reminded who much they are loved and how important they are.
The trip up to Chattanooga was pretty easy. Bryson entertained himself with his new Leapster LeapPad and Clay and I had some good adult conversation. We both need that every now and then. Ha!
When we got into the aquarium Bryson went crazy! I don't think he ever stopped talking from the moment we went in til the time he fell asleep in the car.
This was Bryson's seeing the aquarium for the very first time. I wish y'all could have seen how big his eyes got when he first went in. He was amazed by everything.

The seahorse was one of my favorite parts. There were so many of them and they were just too cute.

Bryson getting to see Nemo! I think he said "momma, daddy that's Nemo!" a thousand times. And what really took him by surprise was when he saw more than one. It was so sweet to watch his face.

They had these little holes inside some of the exhibits where the kids could crawl under there and look inside. B thought that was the coolest thing. He was such a ham in there!!!

Daddy showing Bryson the different kinds of fish.

I thought this picture was hillarious! He loved seeing the turtles.

I took waaaaay to many pictures, but I picked out a few to post. I loved the stingrays. And the picture of the jellyfish is amazing to me. They really are beautiful creatures. And it's so amazing to see all of this amazing and beautiful creatures and know that God created each and every one. To look at some of these things I don't know how anyone couldn't believe that God doesn't exsist.

There were several exhibits where they let the kids touch some of the fish. This was at the stingray pond. Bryson attempted several times to touch one, but would get scared. But they would just come right up to the edge and swim to the surface.

This is another picture that makes me laugh!

Towards the end of the aquarium there is a place where you can look up and see the fish swimming over you. Right as Bryson started looking up one of the sharks swam over him. He thought that was the coolest thing! He was afraid of seeing the sharks when we first got there, but I think they might have been one of his favorite things to see.

We had such a fun time with Bryson! Getting to spend time with him and taking him somewhere that he enjoyed. It was much more fun than spending all that time planning and stressing over giving him a party. I know this is something we won't be able to do every year and that's okay. But with everything going on in our lives right now it was the perfect time for Clay and I to spend with our first little boy!

Our very first family picture (hours after you were born), your first birthday, your second birthday and your third birthday.
