Kids WILL Say the Darndest Things!

While standing in line at the grocery store today, Catelyn decided to talk to the bald man behind us by saying... "Hey...your hair's missin'!" I swung my head around to apologize to the man, but fortunately he just replied with a sweet smile and said "your right!" Thank heavens for sweet, understanding people! I think I may have to have a talk with Catelyn about not saying everything that is in that precious little head of hers. I have to admit though that after I was safely away, I called Will and told him of the conversation, and we both died laughing! That girl is hilarious!!!!

Growing So Fast

I'm not sure if it's because we moved right after having a baby, or because Will started a new career or that we're in a new town... but I feel like Tripp's first 10 months went twice as fast as Catelyn. I feel like I just had him, and yet the little guy is going to be a year old in less than two month. Blows my mind! So, I guess this post is me trying to capture his first year a little more in pictures since it seems to be moving to quickly in real time. :) Love you little buddy!

Great Weekend!!

This past weekend was an absolute blast!! Me, Will and the kids were able to spend a gorgeous, fun filled time with Will's parents (or better known to the kids as "Jack and Pops"). We met them at the Memphis zoo on Friday and played for a couple hours, then we went over to Rendezvous BBQ to eat lunch, which Will was very excited about. It is one of those places you "have to go to" if you're in Memphis, and has been featured on Man vs. Food on the Travel Channel. We ate until we were all completely stuffed, and then headed back to Jonesboro to relax a while. That night we ate at home, and then had a birthday cake and present for Phil and Jackie. The next day, we did a little shopping, ate some more good food, and watched ASU play some baseball. The whole weekend was filled with beautiful weather, good hang time, good food and lots of fun!

My 10 Month Old Cutie

Ten months today- craziness!!! My little guy is precious and the sweetest natured little guy!! He is so easy going and loves his big sister. He is a superb sleeper, going to bed at 7 and waking at 7:30. He takes two, two hour naps and is an awesome eater. We started him on whole milk and he's doing really well. He eats all table foods and haven't found a food he doesn't like. Yay! He weighs 21 pounds and some odd ounces and is crawling all over the place. He likes to go for strolls in his walker and he likes to walk while pushing one of the kids sized chairs along the floor. He's pulling up on everything and is taking juice and water out of a sippy cup. He's still my little cuddle bug and I love it! Happy 10 months sweet thing!

Fishy Applique

Last summer, I found a couple of solid, child sized, white t-shirts at a garage sale for 25 cents a piece. I grabbed up all that they had, knowing they would be perfect to put appliques on. I guess because the temperature has warmed up some, and I can feel a hint of spring in the air, I decided today would be a good day to start appliqueing. I searched the internet and found some cute ideas, and then I let Catelyn decide which design I should applique on Tripp's t-shirt. She decided the fishy design looked somewhat like Nemo, so fishy it is! I then went to my "stash" of clothes to be repurposed and found a tube top that had fun summer colors on it and knew I had my fishy fabric. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, and still have enough left over fabric to possibly make Catelyn a skirt. Love me some cheap projects! :)
