Life Lately

We have been super busy, hence the lack of blogging. I still have to get Harrison's first birthday pictures uploaded and post about that, but until then, here is what we have been up to:

*Harrison is totally a full time walker now! It is so freakin' cute. I have to get a good video, cause he's fast. He also has this little push car he got for his birthday from sister, and he drives that joker everywhere! He and Emma have "races" with their riding toys. More like he chases her, but she loves it.

*Emma is fully POTTY TRAINED, praise Jesus! She wears a diaper at night until I can figure out/research how to best get her out of her bed in the middle of the night to tee tee. It is awesome! However, while we've been traveling we have been taking our portable potty. She is real good about telling me when she needs to go, and sometimes I have to pull over off an exit ramp for her to get in the back of the Expedition and sit on her pot. Yesterday she "had to poop" and I pulled over to accommodate. She did not disappoint. This is super nice for many reasons, but I also thought this would never happen! Just goes to show you that they will do it when they're ready.

*We had a bomb ass 30th birthday party for sister this weekend. Friday night was cooking in (steaks and twice baked potatoes), then lots of beer/wine and a board game called Battle of the Sexes. Which was totally awesome and we won! Saturday started out with sleeping in, pedicures, Mall of Georgia, relaxation time, dinner out at 5 Seasons Brew Pub, then home to continue wretched excess with beer/wine and more Battle of the Sexes. Sadly, we lost. Sunday was more sleeping in, brother made an awesome breakfast consisting of Cotswold cheese grits and some Waffle House hashbrown concoction. It was amazing! We had a great time just being like the we were pre-kids. Lots of sleeping in and we still had "phantom baby crying" moments where we all swear we heard a kid crying. I also got an AWESOME ice cream cake from Publix. Remember when sister did this hair tutorial? Yeah. Picture. On a cake. With ugly roses. It was too much! 

This was the lovely picture gracing the cake. I'm sure Sarah has a picture of
 the cake and a blog post coming  about our weekend!

*We are heading back to Nashville this weekend for a family reunion and to see Grannie. I'm really excited to go! I missed last year because Harrison was 3 weeks old.

So, we've been very busy and having lots of summer fun! Next up-Harry's birthday recap!


  1. Sounds like a blast weekend!! The food sounds amazing too!

  2. So proud of Emma being potty trained! WTG! How did you even do that or what made you start?

  3. That picture of Sarah KILLS ME EVERY TIME!!!! I'm so glad you had a great sissy weekend with the mens!

    I can't believe you have two grown-ass children - the last time I saw Emma she was still a little bitty thing. I feel like crying - that went by in the blink of an eye!!


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
