3 months.

the cousins!

Laura and the girls came to visit and we had so much fun! Smith was so excited that Anne Parks and Nora came to his "new house" to play!

Trying to get this whole crew to settle down and get in bed is a chore!

I guess this is what I get for asking them to say "cheese"

while they were eating lunch! We had dinner at Randol's, which is a true cajun restraunt with great seafood and a live zydeco band! First, we ate dinner and watched all the cute older couples (in their matching outfits) dance like their life depended on it. They were SO cute! Then....the kids hit the dance floor!!!
(Have you ever noticed that every picture of me is always blurry??? I guess I need to give my sweet husband a photography lesson!)
There was some serious dancing going on. I mean serious.

I pretty sure the crew at Randol's will see us again next time the girls are in town!

bumbo and brother.

Banks is getting so big and strong...AND he is so sweet!

He is so cute when he laughs and coos and I just can't get enough of his "tight" cheeks!

The other day I decided he was big enough to try the bumbo.

He was not a fan at first... But then big brother decided he would show him how its done!!! (good thing I happened to have two of these things, or Banks would have never gotten to sit in one!)

Gannie's here!

Gannie had her spring break a few weeks ago and we were so excited she decided to spend a few days with us in Louisiana! Gannie brought Smith a new baseball tee and they wore each other out playing in the yard all day!!! Banks and I enjoyed watching from the back porch!
Then, we took Gannie to the zoo!

We had lots of fun and can't wait for Gannie to come back and visit again very soon!

throw me somethin' mista!

Now that we have experienced our first Mardi Gras,
I think we can offically call ourselves Louisianans.
Our sweet new friends, the Munoz family, made sure we got in on all the action. Smith, with Alex and Ava, waiting for the parade to start.
The police motorcycles were Smith's favorite part!

The second night we went to a parade it was freezing!!! I stayed in the back of the car with Banks and Smith occasionally jumped in to warm up his hands!
Mark and Tyla rode in the parade and threw us some pretty good stuff!
Check out those beads I caught!

Happy Mardi Gras!

i love you, too!


While we were in Mississippi, we also spent one day in Starkville. Smith had so much fun playing with Sutton;
and I was pretty excited to visit with her mom, too!

We got to see Heidie and Halie, too!
Then we had fun playing at Mary Cameron's house! I didn't get pictures of all the kids, but my how our lives have changed in the past few years.
There were 4 of us there and we each had two kids. There were little ones everywhere!

go AP!

The boys and I were able to spend a few days in Mississippi last week. We got to visit with lots of friends and family; and one of the highlights of our trip was to watch Anne Parks play in her soccer game.
Smith's favorite part was the victory tunnel after the game!
