Delaney | 2 Months

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.

We thought life was perfect before she came along, but since her arrival life has been a little extra sweeter.

She has the prettiest blue eyes and a perfect little mouth. She is cooing and smiling all of the time, and really likes her mama.

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.

She is perfect in every way.

She is a very sweet baby, and likes to be held. She is definitely our little snuggler.

We are completely smitten.

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!

Every morning around 4:00 AM Deek wakes up and heads down stairs to his office to get a jump start on his school work. He’s always been an early bird, and says that he gets his best work done in the mornings.

We’re happy to say that we have reason to celebrate in the Dubberly house! Because of all of this hard work Deek was officially granted PhD candidate status earlier this week! Basically, he has completed all course work requirements for the PhD and just has the dissertation to finish! One last step until we have a Dr. Deek in the house.

Congratulations, Deek! Thanks for working so hard at everything you do, and we’re so proud of you. We thank God for you every day!

Judson’s First Birthday Party

Judson's First Birthday!
Judson’s First Birthday!

A few weeks ago we all packed up, and took a trip down to Georgia to celebrate Judson’s first birthday with family. We had the party on Mrs. Laura and Mr. Brian’s back porch which is one of Judson’s favorite spots. He loves swinging on the porch calling the ducks.

Our theme was baseball, and we had a great time. Aunt April was sweet to take pictures so Deek and I could enjoy Judson and the party. Judson loved celebrating his first birthday with family.

NaNa and Papa’s yard looked beautiful with flowers blooming everywhere. JuJu did all of our grocery shopping for us, and came in really early to help cook and decorate. Aunt Meagan helped so much with getting the finishing touches just right. Aunt Kristina made our yummy cake and smash cake.

And…because Judson says there can’t ever be a celebration without lots of balloons Granddaddy, Daddy, JuJu and Aunt Meagan blew up a lot of balloons! (over 200 🙂 )

Thanks to everyone who came and those who helped. We couldn’t imagine celebrating Judson’s birthday any other way!

Here are some photos from our fun day!

What a fun day!

The Birthday Boy

Yesterday we celebrated Judson’s first birthday. It’s hard to believe that he was once this small.

Judson is our little delight, and we had such fun celebrating him all day. He even had a little birthday party at his babysitter’s house!

JuJu, Grandaddy, Aunt Mae, Aunt Kiah and Uncle Trent sent him 19 balloons. They also sent Mama flowers!

Thanks for my balloons!

If there’s one thing in this world that Judson likes, it’s balloons…and running around in his birthday suit is a close second. So the combination of the two was definitely in order. Here’s us after our birthday bath:

We’re also a big fan of having Happy Birthday sung to us, and birthday cake is pretty good too!

Hooray for birthdays!

We will be heading South in a few weeks to have our official first birthday party with family! We can hardly wait.

12 month stats coming soon.

Chasing is the key word there.

Judson is quite the walker and quite the talker!  We love to read books and ride our Thomas the Train.

This is my new favorite book. It's about Grandaddy's tractors.

We’re planning a great first birthday party down in Georgia in a few weeks.

We’re going with  a baseball theme, and there will be lots and lots of balloons because those are Judson’s favorite!

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!

There’s no clinic today for me! That means a day filled with my favorite two boys.

Judson and I will be getting our last minute gifts wrapped. He is such good help!

I’m pretty good with a roll of wrapping paper.

We will be packing up for our trip to Georgia too.

I can’t wait!

And we can’t forget to bake some cookies for Santa to go along with a nice glass of milk!

Does Santa share?

You’re giving him ALL the cookies!

May your Christmas be filled with as much joy as your heart can hold…ours sure will be!

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.
