Big girl bed

Bryan and I have been enjoying uninterrupted nights of sleep, so we thought what the heck why not take our chances and break Braxton's bed down to a toddler bed. Crossing our fingers she stays in her room/bed all night long. Will keep you posted.

My day with Miss B

So today Braxton got to play, play, play the day away. I was doing office work and was a bit distracted all day.
We started the day as Snow White
and by lunch we were tattooing ourselves
Couldn't help but laugh

Growing up

Just thought I would post about what my kiddos have been up to.
Bayler: He is working on site words from school. Every night we do our flash cards and he loves showing me all of his work he does at school. He still loves his chocolate milk, blankets, and nature shows. He is currently hooked on Phines and Ferb (on Disney) and Call of the Wildman on Animal Planet. He is going to play outdoor & indoor soccer, and also T-ball this year. Bryan is going to help coach his team. We can't wait. He is growing like a weed, just had to go buy him all new pants! We do a donut date every Thursday morning, just me and him. He looks forward to this day all week, no matter how early we have to get up. I love our special time too. Also he is very helpful with chores around the house. Hope he continues this well into his teen years
Braxton: Miss B is into the "terrible twos" with an extra act of sass and drama. She is potty trained (shoosh) she loves her high heels, hats, braclets, and rain boots. We can't leave the house without her rain boots. We are growing her bangs out. She has a kitchen in our kitchen and she plays like she makes food for all of us. She is starting to put sentences together, it is too cute. Her and Bay have a love hate relationship. Sometimes I am more like a ref rather than a mom. Braxton and went to the mall the other day and she is a great shopping buddy.

Well hope everyone had a great week and continue to have a great weekend

Happy Birthday Nicole

Happy birthday to my cousin Nicole. We have been best friends since the day I was born. We all had such a fun time celebrating her birthday on Saturday. She use to give me a hard time because she was older than me....but now that we are turning 30 I must admit I don't mind her being 30 a couple weeks before me, I can still say I am in my 20's just a bit longer! LOL
Can't wait for a girls weekend away for our presents to each other

Not a way to start

We have already had a fun/interesting weekend and it is only noon on Saturday. Bayler had his first sleep over. Well he hosted his first sleep over with his best bud Wesley. He had been counting down the days all week. The boys did great. Pizza, popcorn, movies, adventuring, and then attempting going to bed. It took about 30 minutes for them to finally fall asleep. They were making each other laugh, telling stories, and pretending to snore. Lots of giggles before they dozed off. Donuts this morning and then Wesley's momma came and got him. About 10 minutes after they left and about 5 minutes after Bryan left, there was a loud scream/cry from the backyard. I look out and Bayler had stepped on a nail. Frantic I called everyone I knew and got all the answers we needed and now my Saturday looks back on track. Hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend.

Daddy's girl

I remember looking at my dad just like this. I hope Bryan and Braxton continue to build a close relationship as the years pass. A bond between a father and his daughter is so important. She loves her daddy so much and I love hearing Bryan's voice rise a notch when he talks to his baby girl. Bryan does this thing with both kids just at random times, he says "Guess what" and Bayler and Braxton always follow with: "I love you too daddy" it was something started with Bayler when he started talking. It always makes me smile when I hear that little conversation between them. Just wanted to share this because I thought it shows her crazy love for her daddy
