Brotherly~Sisterly Love

I have to admit, I am LOVING having a boy and a girl! It's so much fun to see just how different little girls are from little boys:-) Both of them are so unique and different in their own ways!! I am so crazy about both my sweet babies!

First swim of the year!

Happy Birthday Shelby!

Macie's sweet friend Shelby turned 2 a couple of weeks ago, so we celebrated with her at her Micky Mouse birthday party at their new gorgeous house in Piperton! Shelby used to live across the street from us, but moved a year ago to her new house, we have missed her so much:-( The party was a blast! The kids played outside on the swing, blew bubbles, chased bouncy balls in the field behind their house, ate cake, and played on this super cool toy called a Jump-O-Lene!! Macie had so much fun that she did not want to leave, hence the MAJOR meltdown she had when it was time to leave:-) Happy Birthday Shelby!

Ready for cake!! YUM!

Their First Matching Outfits!

Precious...Precious.....Precious.....Nothing sweeter than a matching brother and sister!  Oh I could eat them up!  These outfits are ADORABLE!  We LOVE the Shrimp and Grits Clothing line!

Zoo Trip!

So, we FINALLY got around to going to the Zoo for the first time as a family about two weeks ago on daddy's day off!! I have been meaning to take Macie since LAST FALL, but due to being pregnant (yes, I am a lazy pregnant person), we didn't get around to it:-) We decided to purchase a membership so we could go anytime! Macie had a great time (except for getting a little sunscreen in her eye which caused about 20 minutes of drama) and Caleb just hung out in the stroller and enjoyed the ride! The weather was perfect~72 degrees and breezy! We couldn't have picked a better day! Macie LOVES animals so this was an exciting day for her! Her favorite animal for the day was the alligator!! We are looking forward to MANY more trips to the Memphis Zoo!

Mommy and Macie! Macie chose the elephant to take a picture with:-)

About 1 minute after we pulled out of the parking lot! She was worn out!

9 Weeks Old!

Can you believe it! Caleb is already 9 weeks old! I sure wish the last 9 weeks of my pregnancy went as fast as these past 9 weeks with my little man have! He has already grown so much and we have already grown so much in love with him!!! He has started to smile, coo, and laugh!!! At his 8 week check up he weighed in a whopping 13.5 pounds and measured 23.5 inches long and he is already in 3-6 month clothing! He is a BIG boy!! But then again, we seem to make big babies:-) He still is not sleeping through the night, but we typically only have to get up around 2 a.m. and that is his only middle of the night feeding. We are really blessed to have Caleb as part of our family!
