Cute Boots!

My mother-in-law just sent Catelyn the cutest pair of rain boots. Needless to say...Catelyn loves them and they have been the shoe of choice since receiving them. Thanks again Jackie, for the precious shoes!
The cutest little boots.
The cutest little girl! :)

Recharge with the Fam

This past week, me, Catelyn and Tripp loaded up and headed to Huntsville to spend a week with my parents and my sisters family. I always have such a great time when I go, and it always proves to be just the recharge me and the kids need.

One for the Baby Book

Catelyn was sitting beside me today while I was changing Tripp's diaper. I could tell her little mind was working, and I could also tell she was processing "parts" of Tripp that she had never processed before. Here is how the following conversation went:

Catelyn: (GASP) Mommy!!!!

Me: What Catelyn

Catelyn: What did the doctor do!!!? (Tripp had been to the Dr. the previous day)

Me: (somewhat laughing) What do you mean?

Catelyn: (hand balled up in a fist held in front of her hips) he messed "it" up!!

Me: (laughing a little harder) it's ok...he's not messed up, boys are made different than girls.

Catelyn: (wide eyes) OH!!!

That precious, little girl never fails to get a laugh out of me on a daily basis.

Mom...I love you and you're the Best!

My amazing Mom!!
This past week was week four of some type of illness in our house. It's been ridiculous! Catelyn came down with the stomach bug first, followed by Tripp, then I got it and Will caught it two days later. My sweet mom had been on stand by for some time, since we couldn't seem to get well around here, but finally this past Friday morning, I had to make the call. Will and I had both had awful nights, with many trips to the bathroom, so at 7 am I called my mom with an "I need you" plead, and her response..."I'm on my way baby!" She's awesome! Immediately, I felt some relief. She drove 4 and half hours, putting herself at risk of catching this nasty bug, just to come take care of us. Because of her, Will and I were able to get some much needed rest with the confidence of knowing our kids were taken care of. Not only that, she did laundry for me, cleaned my kitchen, fed the kids, brought us groceries and the list goes on. Thankfully, I started feeling better while she was here and was able to spend some good hang time with her too. I appreciate her more than she'll ever know. So mom...THANK YOU and I love you very much!!!!

My two sweet babies!!

What do you do when your to sick to go outside,
but not sick enough to just lay a fort!
Tripp hanging out in the walker while we took
advantage of a GORGEOUS afternoon!
After I pulled the kids around in the wagon, they ended up playing in
there together for quite a while. It was cute to watch them.
