First Family Beach Trip

Beach Sunrise

Beach Sunrise

Back in September when the dust started to settle after our whirlwind move from Kentucky back to Georgia we took our first family trip to the beach!

I just found a spare second to go through the photos, and they bring back all of the fun memories.

Judson is a natural beach lover. All the sand in the world to dig, and you can take breaks to play golf. What’s not to love?

Delaney was born to be a beach babe too! She was still in the phase where most of her days were spent napping so the majority of her time was spent on the patio or in the condo.

Sick Babies & Merle Haggard

December has been a rough month in our house. The babies were kind enough to not get sick at the same time, but it’s meant we’ve had a solid two weeks of coughs, fevers, ear infections, runny noses, and lots of tears.

We have not had a lot of sleep.

Deek and I are pretty sleep deprived, and the other night while we were propping each other up he reminded me of the wise words of the Hag himself.

If we make it through December

Everything’s gonna be all right, I know

It’s the coldest time of winter

And I shiver when I see the falling snow.

And because of the aforementioned sleep deprivation I found it to be the funniest thing I had heard in a long time. So now it’s our official theme song for the remainder of the month. Yes, we have a theme song. You should really get one.

Thanks, Merle.

And thanks, Deek, for being my best Okie from Muskogee.

Waving at the neighbors!

Judson has a few favorite spots in our new house. One of those is standing in the dining room chair by the window observing the neighborhood. The fingerprint smudges on the window tell the story, and we love those little smudges!

Deek and I love his little personality. He’s so bright and curious.

Pumpkin Bowling

I love a little boy and a little pumpkin picking as you can tell, but sometimes when you have a little fellow as active as my Judson you go pumpkin bowling instead.

Trust me. It's a real thing. I invented it.

Trust me. It’s a real thing. I invented it.

Allow Judson to explain.

Pick your pumpkin.

Pick your pumpkin.

Give it a good pitch down the driveway. Repeat this step with as many pumpkins as your mom has.

Applause is appreciated after each pumpkin roll.

Once you're out of pumpkins you go pick them all up!

Delaney | 6 Months Stats

This little cherub celebrated her 1/2 year birthday just a few days ago! So we had a quick photo shoot while big brother was taking a nap, and we tried on our Christmas dress for good measure.

Delaney wasn’t really in the mood to have her picture taken.

However, we got a few good ones anyway because she is the absolute best baby and cannot take a bad picture!  Just ask her mother, father, grandparents, etc, etc. etc.

No crawling just yet, but she can roll over with the best of them. She smiles and laughs all of the time. She loves kisses and hugs, and thinks big brother is the most hilarious person alive.

She is rolling over and actually seems to enjoy tummy time!

She squeals and coos, and loves to be told how pretty she is…which there’s no shortage of people willing to do that!

Hi!

She has started trying baby food, but the jury is still out on what we think about that. She makes the absolute funniest faces when you feed her. Apples seems to be our favorite so far.

Big brother Judson is our favorite person around. We could watch him play all day! She giggles any time he runs by with his golf club in hand.

I’m 3 months old!

Delaney turned 3 months old this past Saturday, and I cried a little on the inside (kidding…sort of). Time really does fly with the second baby.

Hi, Mom!

She is the happiest little lady. Smiles and coos all of the time. Loves one-on-one interaction!

This is one of my pouty faces. Works like a charm!

She is a great little eater, and is growing every single day.

Sweet little lips!

She is very sassy, and will let you know when she isn’t pleased with how things are going.

These Days…

This sweet little honey bee…

Loves her mama, laughs a lot, smile lights up her whole face, has deep dimples.

Is on a tummy-time strike and isn’t a huge fan of bath time.

She looks like her daddy. Acts like her mama.

This little monkey…

Pats you on the back when he hugs you, shakes hands like a grown man, runs everywhere.

Has a golf club or ball in his hand at all times.

Watches entirely too much Curious George.

Teach us to number our days… Psalm 90:12

Do you see what Granddaddy and JuJu are letting me do?

Recently we moved back home to Georgia from Kentucky. I never officially wrote about that little experience. It’s been a good one. A little stressful at times for me. We finally found our missing can opener last week (thank the Lord), and everyone is settling into a nice routine.

One week after Delaney’s birth my mom, Judson, Delaney and I hopped on a plane and headed South. Deek and his dad stayed in Kentucky one final weekend to load up the moving van and say good-bye to our church.

The babies and I stayed with my parents until Deek made it into town.

Judson discovered the water hose one afternoon while we were playing outside. Delaney snuggled in Granddaddy’s arms. JuJu played in the water with Judson. I took pictures. A fun time was had by all!

Our little girl turned two months this past Wednesday.

It feels like she was born just yesterday, and at the same time it feels like a lifetime ago.

She is a great little eater, and only wakes one time in the night.

You could set your clock by her. She requests an early morning snack at precisely 3:00AM each morning. We are happy to oblige.

She watches everything big brother Judson does, and he is already showing some protective instincts towards her.
