Meet Beau!

Beau | 6 Months

After a brief blogging hiatus we’re back, and we have the sweetest little baby around to introduce.

Beau McKinnon Dubberly. There’s never been a happier, sweeter, more easy-going baby.

We’re all huge fans of this little guy.

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.

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.

Delaney just turned 5 months last week!

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.

Big brother Judson thinks that she’s pretty special too.

Here are a few outtakes from our newborn photo shoot. Judson is a great assistant!

This is as good as it gets for our little ten month old! Judson had no time for his sticker wearing this past weekend.

Judson is standing up without assistance and even has been taking a few steps. He loves to share, to read books, and to play with his toys.

Hi!
Hi!

He has a great appetite, and has been trying new foods lately. He says, “Mmmmm!” to Mama’s mashed potatoes. He’s also a big fan of macaroni and cheese. Judson puts his eight teeth to good use.

Judson says Mama, Dada, and dog. We think he even said, “Amen!” after the blessing the other day. 

He gives the best slobbery kisses and his hugs make you melt.

It's time to play!

It’s hard to believe that we will be celebrating one year in just a couple of months! What a little gift.

Sweet Girl

We had our anatomy scan just a few days ago, and we are so excited to announce that we are expecting a girl!

She kicked and wiggled the entire time during our ultrasound…much like her older brother! The ultrasound tech, Brittany, also did our anatomy scan with Judson. She commented on how wiggly our little lady was, and had to take a few re-takes to get the images she needed. We were happy to see our girl for such a long time!

Our sweet girl likes to keep her hands up by her face, and keep her little head over in the region of my right hip.

Judson announced the good news to our families with a bunch of pink balloons! He’s going to be a great big brother. We hope she’s ready to play because we have a big brother who is an expert!

Before we had the ultrasound all of our family members weighed in so congratulations are in order for Grandma Shirley, Aunt Mae, Aunt Chele, Jonah and Poppy for guessing the correct gender! NaNa, Aunt April, Uncle Greg and Cam get honorable mention because they guessed it would be a baby. haha

We can hardly wait until June!

This sweet darling is 9 months old! We are quite the little mover, and will probably be walking any day now.

He has 8 teeth. He says, “Da-Da” and “Ma-Ma” but never on demand. He has the cutest little voice. He enjoys eating whatever Mama and Daddy are eating, and has a great appetite.

See!

We had our 9 months check up with a new pediatrician, Dr. Diamond, last week, and Judson thought she was really nice. She let us play with her stethoscope and otoscope!

I'm not so sure about wearing this sticker.
