Christmas Pictures


Here are a few pictures from our Christmas. Rylan enjoyed all the excitement from his jumperoo he wasn't up for opening any of his gift so that was left up to mommy (which is why there aren't many pictures.) Natalie was thrilled to see that Santa had brought her everything she asked for and more. Criddle her elf must have put in a good word for her. She got a doll crib, pink computer, bicycle, swing set, and many more wonderful presents. Rylan also got lots of goodies. We had a wonderful Christmas. Hope you enjoy the pictures. More to come soon.

Sweet Boy

I know I am going to regret this when he is one and I can't get him to stop but he just looks so precious. I had to share with you these sweet pictures. I find him doing this every morning when I wake up.

I could not ask for a better baby except for Natalie she was wonderful too. Rylan started sleeping though the night at 6 weeks old. He is always so happy. He only cries when he is hungry. When he coos, smiles, and laughs out loud it makes my day. Here are just a few random likes and dislikes. He loves to sit up like a big boy and watch the t.v. He hates being on his tummy. He love to watch the ceiling fan. He is amazed by lights. He loves his big sister but not when she gets in his face or tries to pick him up which is very frequently. She thinks she is a big girl and has tried to bring him to me on several occasions. I just try and remain calm and ask her to stand very still until mommy can come and get brother. I learned the hard way not to come in the room screaming at her to put her brother down. The one and only time I did that she just looked up at me and dropped him. Don't worry he didn't cry long. Anyways, we take Rylan for his 4 month check-up on the 20th. I can't wait to see how much he has grown. He seems so much bigger than Natalie was at that age. For all of you Tide fans out there.....ROLL TIDE! I almost forgot Rylan is cutting a tooth on the bottom is this normal this young? Natalie didn't get any teeth until she was 7 months old.

Election Thoughts

Well...I went to bed last night with a sick feeling, woke up with a sick feeling but as this day has gone on I feel much more at peace. After reading this verse on a friend's blog I realized that the Lord has a lot to say about authority and government, and bottom line...we as Christians are to respect the authority He has put into place. No, I am not happy about the results of the election, but it's not about me. It's about the Lord and his plan for His world.
"Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgement on themselves." Romans 13:1-2
I will respect Barack Obama as my president because this is what I've been called to do.

More weekend fun

Here are a few more pictures from our fun weekend. Natalie got her hair cut on Saturday. She was such a big girl. She wants me to dry her hair after bath time so that her hair will look pretty like mommy's. Sunday Rylan and I went to Karen's baby shower. It was around Natalie's nap time so she stayed at home with Daddy. Karen got a lot of great gifts. I can't wait to meet sweet baby J.

Halloween Fun

We had a great weekend. Natalie had so much fun trick or treating. We went to the Trunk or Treat at the First Baptist Church and then to the Vandiver Park. When we got back from all of that fun we still had to make a few more stops around our neighborhood so that Natalie could show off her costume. The next day we just stayed around the house and ate lots of candy. Needless to say we had to hide the candy from Natalie. She was wanting to eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Saturday night we went across the street to the Revival Center where they were have a Fall Festival. They had so much fun stuff for Natalie to do she didn't know where to start. Here are a few pictures from our weekend.

Thanks Ashley

I haven't had a chance to blog lately but when I finally decided to log on I was surprised to find that I had got my first blog award from Ashley at Heath Bars and Reese's cups . I am supposed to pass this on to 6 people but I am not sure that I know 6 people to pass this one to so here goes...

1.Shelley at The Davis Family. She is one of my best friends. I love reading about her 2 boys and her sweet sister.

2.Ashley at The Buchanans- Our Life. She is not only my neighboor but also one of my best friends. We tell each other everything.

I could only come up with 2 people because most of the blogs I follow either don't know that I am reading their blogs or are my friends that have already received the award.

There is an end in sight

We have been potty training Natalie for a while now and she a done really well. We still wear diapers at night so that we are not up changing the sheets at 2:00 in the morning. Last night she woke up and said mommy take me to the potty. I was so excited! Hopefully this trend will continue until we are out of them completely.

New threads

Natalie got a sweet new outfit from Sweet Dreams Designs. It is so adorable as all of their clothes are. Here are a few pictures of her showing it off.

A new look

I am new to the blog world and still trying to figure everything out . I thought I would use my first post to introduce you to my kids. Natalie is my 2 1/2 year old princess, and Rylan is my precious 2 1/2 month old. They are my reason for living. I can't remember what life was like without them.
