Blessed

This pictures makes my heart so full! I’m so blessed!!


One Precious Child

Paxton loves lots of things: guitars, music, shoes, boots, daddy and outside! Once he had his boots on, he was ready to go ‘side!

I thought he was too cute to not take a few minutes and snap a few pictures of this adorable little man! This is right before he realized I had a camera in hand. 

He sees the camera and is now putting on a show! Oh my sweetness, could he be any cuter?!

I am one blessed mama! One really blessed mama…he’s coming after me to give me a big hug!!


We’re expecting a…

That’s right…it’s a boy!!

We found out last Thursday that we’re parents to 2 sons now! We were hoping this baby would be a boy so Paxton would have a close in age brother. We were thrilled when we heard those words, “it’s a boy!”

Most importantly, he is healthy and everything looks amazing. He’s measuring right on track!

Here is our sweet boy, Weston:

This is my favorite ultrasound shot! He’s just beautiful!

“Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him.” -Psalms 127:3 NIV

We’re excited that we now have a “little brother” shirt to go with Paxton’s “big brother” shirt! {We told our parents and sisters like this!}And I’ve been telling people that I’ll be very tempted if it is a boy to buy matching or coordinating outfits for the boys! So, I had to purchase these adorable plaid rompers when I found them on clearance at Carters for $3.99! {I adore their plaid rompers!!}

 


The Difference of A Year

Posting about Mother’s Day resulted in some reminiscing and looking at pictures from last Mother’s Day! Wow, what a difference a year makes!

Mother's Day 2010

Last Mother’s Day I had a 3-week-old teeny, tiny baby (and was 3 weeks postpartum & still looking a bit swollen!)

Mother's Day 2011

This year I have a 12.5-month-old toddler who’s walking!

I just wonder how different the picture will look next year and how much bigger Paxton will be!


Mother’s Day

I had a wonderful Mother’s Day! We had a lovely morning at church (and I had my favorite Cinnamon Crunch Bagel from Panera for breakfast there!) Paxton moved up from the nursery (where I volunteer) to the toddler room this week, he’s getting to be such a big boy! {And I was not emotional about the ‘big move’! I love my toddler so much, he’s so much fun these days!}

After church, I stopped by Sonic and treated myself to a Peach Sweet Tea (yum!) and then picked up a few groceries! John David beat me home (he was at another campus that morning) and we actually ended up eating Cinnamon Cereal for lunch (I just purchased it and it sounded so yummy…notice the cinnamon trend!) Between the 3 of us we basically wiped out the entire box and boy was it good!

After we ate, we went outside and took some pictures of Paxton and Mama on Mother’s Day! We were able to get a few good shots but seriously, photographing a 12-month-old is hard work!

Love that sweet smile!

We checked out the magnolia tree! He loves the leaves!

My magnolia tree had its first blooms!! What a beautiful gift!

This shot is just funny to me….had to share!

Paxton enjoys playing with my necklaces!

This necklace says “Love is Patient”! I wear it as a reminder of the importance of patience in my mothering, it was quite fitting to wear on Mother’s Day I thought!

Having fun with my sweet boy!

Stealing some sweet kisses!

John David made Hot Wings and Sweet Potato Fries for dinner again this year! Yummy! I also was given some peach rings (again, yummy!!) and my sweet man made some delicious homemade strawberry ice cream!!

I had a wonderful Mother’s Day and I’m just feel so blessed to be called ‘mama’! {Especially now that he is actually saying mama!!}

And we’ll leave you on this silly note…
