Weekend Getaway

Hey Y'all!
Oh my goodness I am glad to be back!! I missed you guys... and my own bed and my poor kitty and the city!!! We are home and it feels good!
We headed up to my sister Darci's house early Thursday afternoon to meet our new (and only for the time being) niece Meika Madilynn! Who became part of our family on Wednesday. As Her auntie let me tell you she is just Precious!!!! She is so easy going for her mama and daddy *and her big brother Braxten*!
We also spent some time with my dear friend K who I have typed to you all here about. I love her dearly and I want you all to pray for them in the coming months. October 23rd is their sweet little boy's 1st birthday and it will be 1 year since they said goodbye to him. Let me tell you he was beautiful! I just ask that you all pray for comfort and peace as the date gets closer and pray that they find a fitting way to honor him. Also be on your knees for them as they are going to be trying again soon, just pray for peace and that God would bless them.
I also would like if you would pray for us as our house closing is coming up in a few weeks and we will know more about that some time tomorrow and once I know I will pass it on to you all to be praying for a smooth move!
Well we had a fun fulled weekend with new babies, family dinners, football, high school band, friends,and now we are home and I will close this post with pictures of our weekend getaway!



I HOPE YOU ENJOY!!!!!!!

What are you up to now Adlie...





You wear 3-6 month clothes...





You are in size 3 diapers...





You are STILL mostly breastfeeding...





You like to eat some baby food...





You are now saying Mama and Dada a lot





You are crawling EVERYWHERE!!!





You laugh a lot *which we LOVE!!*





You have such a sweet personality and are still such a cuddle bug...





You are now taking a bath in the big tub and you LOVE the water...





You are pulling up on every thing and have started trying to stand alone...





We have started giving you a sippy cup and you seem to like it..





You now sit in the cart when we go shopping and you love hanging out and seeing what is going on!

Please pray....UPDATE!!

***Update*****
I just wanted to update really quick ... My sister and her husband welcomed a little girl in to their family a little after 2pm this afternoon. I am not sure on her weight and length or the spelling of her name right now but I will have some pictures and those updates in a little while but I wanted to let you know my new Niece has arrived and is healthy! Thank you for praying!

Tomorrow at 5:30 am My younger sister Darci is going to the hospital to be induced. She is 41 and a half weeks pregnant and this baby doesn't seem to want to come out! So if you would just say a prayer for a quick labor and a safe delivery of my new niece or nephew!This is my sister at 36ish weeks last month at our family reunion....
This handsome little boy is going to be a big brother by this time tomorrow!!

Not My Child Monday!!!






Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.






Its that time again and this week there is a little twist.. I don't have to admit to any thing!!! but I get to tell you about little miss Adlie!






Adlie does NOT sleep in only a diaper because she hates wearing clothes to bed! Nope not my child!!!






Adlie does NOT seem to find her way to wires! Nope not my child!






Adlie did NOT get to taste ice cream for the first time this weekend! Nope I would not give my child ice cream at almost 8 months old!






Adlie is NOT standing staring up at the TV watching Adult Swim (Metalocalypse) Nope Not my child!!






Adlie is NOT learning to drink from a sippy cup! Nope she is to little for that!!!






Adlie does NOT seem to sneeze and fart all at the same time and she would never laugh after! Not my Child!






Ok seeing as Adlie is still little and doesn't do to much yet to need to have her own nmcm.. Here are a few of mine..






I do NOT have to put Adlie in the bath tub to go to the bathroom with out her getting in to things.. Nope I don't do that...






I have NOT been drinking way to much coffee and end up staying up WAY to late at night!!! Nope not me!






I am NOT in panic mode over having a very unorganized house due to packing! Nope I am not worried about that!






I have NOT been making tons of bows in hopes of my sister's baby being a girl! Nope I have better things to do with my time!






I do NOT go in to crazy packing mode after midnight for some weird reason! Nope not me I am in bed way before then!






I do NOT need to get Adlie back on a normal sleep schedule since she seems to not go to bed until nearly 3am due to our vacation and I have not had the time to get her going to bed normally! Nope my girl goes to bed at 8pm and sleeps through the night! *I wish!!!*





Well there you have it Y'all now go to MckMama's blog and join in the fun!

5 Wonderful years...

Matt and I were married on a beautiful ,warm,and sunny day 5 years ago today! If you would have asked me 5 years ago where I thought we would be in 5 years I think I would have been WAY off... Thought I am very happy at the direction our lives have taken. I love who he has become and even more now because he is our daughters daddy! I love the fact that his face lights up when she smiles or when she says dada! He is the most loving husband! I am blessed to have such a loving husband and I look forward to the next 5 years and the many many more to follow! I thought I would share a few pictures of us...Here is us when we first started dating! Our wedding day... Taken a few nights ago....
