15 months...and 15 weeks...

Smith had his 15 month check up yesterday....He had FOUR shots and mark my words....that is the LAST time I will take him to the doctor alone! He is a GROWING boy and here are his stats:
27 pounds - 90th percentile
33 inches - 95th percentile
I love this little guy SO much!...despite the fact that he broke the face and lens OFF my camera! I am hoping Santa might drop by my house with an early Christmas gift soon so I don't miss TOO much action! I did get a few pictures this week and will update them when the Halloween festivities conclude tomorrow!

In other news, I am 15 weeks pregnant now and feeling MUCH better. I am getting a lot bigger and hopefully moving into the "Awe, She's pregnant!" mode and out of "Is she pregnant or is she STILL carrying that baby weight? Bless her heart!" mode. One thing is for sure....the BAGEL BITES craving is back! It's not that I want to eat them all the time, it's just when I eat them I could eat 50 of them! I'm sure that will go over well with the SCALE!

Have a great weekend!

with STELLA and DOT!

I have never been a big fan of home jewelry shows so I was a little hesitant when my sister-in-law told me she was becoming a consultant for a jewelry line and wanted me to have a show...but then.....with one look at this new, celebrity-desired line...I. WAS. IN.LOVE!

Don't take my word for it..check it out here. It is called Stella and Dot and has been seen on Oprah and in several magazines like InStyle! If you're anything like me, you will want EVERYTHING in the catalog!

So, I am hosting a show on Tuesday, November 10th. If you live close and want to come, just let me know and I will get you the info, but for those of you out of town, or if you can't make it that night, please check out the website!
If you want to order something, just email me and I will tell you how to order on-line so that Jessie and I get credit for our show!

Remember that Christmas is coming up... what I plan to do and TREAT yourself! THESE are numero uno on MY wish list! Have fun shopping!

cheering and dancing...

hanging out at the game...

cheering and dancing...


The greatest moments of my life these days are watching Reed and Smith interact and play with each other. I don't know if this is because I feel so blessed to have a husband who loves me and our children unconditionally OR if it's because I have a husband who acts like he's THREE! I think maybe it's a combination of the two. Either way...It bring me pure JOY to watch them together. They play all the time and they play HARD! I have lots of videos of them playing together but I have chosen to spare you (and Reed) from watching them all. (After all, he is a professional. a grown man. I wouldn't want you to judge. :))

I just couldn't help but share THIS video with you....I started videoing about 20 minutes into the "Mr. Bear Game" so they were both getting a little tired and maybe even delirious at this point!

the belly is back...

Baby #2 is really starting to make his/her presence known...I am getting bigger day by day! Reed tried to take a picture of my belly and I think it is a great depiction of our what our lives are about to be like....I am starting to feel a lot better. I wasn't sick at all with Smith and have been really struggling with nausea this time around. I am already having some really bad back pain (and I am sure that carrying around my 30 pound child isn't helping!!!) But besides all the expected things that are going on...We are doing great! We go to the doctor on Monday for a check-up so I will update more then!

Smith and I went to see Tizzie for her birthday this week! When we came home today, Daddy had gotten Smith a surprise!!! He had gotten him a new toy! Daddy said he saw it on tv and thought Smith would like it! HE. WAS. RIGHT. Smith LOVES his new toy! See for yourself...

Thanks, Daddy!!!

where'd the ball go???

Smith is learning to hide things and thinks it is so funny when Daddy puts the ball up his shirt and they ask - "Where'd the ball go, momma?"

showering the bride

My friend Foley is getting married in a few weeks and some friends and I - along with our sweet mamas - had a great time hosting a tea for her this past weekend. The bride and hostesses.
We all graduated high school together and it is always so fun to get together!

When we saw Bully from a distance, Smith kept reaching for him and pointing...but as soon as I sat him down close he lost it! I may be a mean momma but I was determined to get a picture!

Smith LOVES books!

He also LOVES music and dancing! BUT the band was so loud as they marched by...
he was holding on pretty tight to Tizzie!

I didn't think he would EVER give the cowbell back! He was having so much fun!

Pizza for supper! Yum-my!

More Cowbell???

happy birthday Garrett!

We helped Garrett Kosko celebrate his first birthday on Saturday! Smith had so much fun and momma here was WORN. OUT.

This was our "attempt" to get a picture of all the kiddos!
Smith and Garrett cruising around the yard in their cool cars...

Smith, Mary Cameron, and Garrett

Smith's first CHOCOLATE cupcake!....and he LIKED it.

Happy Birthday, Garrett!

off to school

Smith loves going to school.... When I tell him it's time to go he runs to the door and waits. I tried to get him to pose for some pictures but he was being a little teased...

rub my belly....
