I got to keep a friend's little 5 month old baby boy for about an hour last night. She needed to get a haircut and there are just some things that are much harder to make time for when you have a baby!  I thought it would be great practice for Mason but probably more for John and myself. :)

He is the sweetest baby and didn't make a peep.  Mason did great, but John and I were thinking, "what have we done?!  How are we going to take care of TWO kids?!?"  I know we can do it, but this seems more scary than before!

Emma on the other hand...was not very happy!

Here is sweet Baby Max

And then I had the two of them pose together.

This will be our reality soon.

Happy St. Patty's Day!

Today was another beautiful day and we decided to go to the zoo.  They have a new dinosaur exhibit that is awesome.  They move, spit on you, and roar. Mason loved it!  

Then we went and got the boys' hair cut. I was thinking the entire time, soon we will bring two boys here along with John to get a haircut.  We are going to live in a barber shop.

Here he was waiting patiently holding his new stuffed animal from the zoo.

I also decided to try to make a fun Irish dish since we weren't doing anything today for St. Patty's Day. I've never even had corned beef before.  We made corned beef, potatoes, carrots, and cabbage.  John and I thought it really wasn't too bad...but certainly not an every week kind of dish.

 John made some green beer to go along. Can't celebrate St. Patty's day without green beer...unless your pregnant.  He did offer to fix me some green water if I liked but I kindly declined. :)

Hope everyone has a fun day!

Halfway There!!

We are halfway through this pregnancy and Mason is halfway to three!!! Big milestones today!

Not only that, but it's Friday!  Woo hoo!  Hopefully we will find a storage unit this weekend so we can get the ball rolling on these bedrooms!

Summer Weather

It feels like summer outside. I think it got up to 83 degrees today and sunny! John came home on time today (which never happens!) and we celebrated with eating out! We love Mexican food! We decided to all go outside when we got home. I pulled up some weeds, John filled out his basketball bracket, and Mason tormented/chased Emma. Then he dropped all things because we had a crisis...a boo boo on our knee.

Crisis adverted...

Nothing will cheer us up more these days than a cars bandaid! 

Hope this beautiful weather stays! Although if this is a prequel of the summer...I think I'm going to be miserable!!!!

Reveal Party

I found a few pictures of the little guy that I forgot to post a couple of weeks ago.

Being silly before church.

Running naked from his Daddy who was trying to put his jammies on. He isn't skinny is he?!?!

So onto the bowling/gender reveal night with our friends. We have a lot of pictures of everyone taking the jello shots and I think they are great. We had such a fun night.  

This is before we left. You can certainly tell I'm getting much larger. Trying to cover it up really makes it worse as i look at this picture. Haha. I really feel like it is happening so fast this time.

Lyndsey, Steph, and Robyn getting ready...

Zach and Jake.

Now we are getting more people in these pictures so I will just say some of the girls. 

Us handing out the shots.

And now starting to find out!

Catey found it first! It's a boy!

This idea of course was a tad different, but it was fun.  We just made up a couple of packets of jello, put a small, blue pacifier in a plastic shot cup, and filled with jello.  We did put a little food coloring in there to darken them up a bit.  No one could tell what color the pacifier was before they took the jello shot.  

And then on to basketball and bowling! And fortunately Ole Miss beat UT. :)

Some of the girls at the end of the night.

I love that we have such a great group of friends and we have way too much fun together.  We couldn't ask for better friends. :)


I won't say I wasn't a little sad it wasn't a girl.  I really thought it would be and this is definitely the end of this girl being more kiddos for us.   But after a couple of days, I'm very excited about this little boy!

* him and Mason will be the best of friends! (well hopefully)
* we have all of Mason's clothes (not that I would mind buying all those cute girl clothes)
* if we can't ever sell this house, they can always have bunkbeds to make room for a playroom IF WE HAVE TO
* we have obviously done this boy thing before :)
* John told me to write we were excited because "Boys are cool".
* And finally, I have been wanting a specific purse for a looooong time and John said since we will not be paying for weddings in our lifetime, I could get it! Woo hoo!

It is all beginning to seem a little more real now. We are going to get new bedding for Masons new toddler bed and the baby's nursery. Once we can get the guest room cleaned out, we will start getting Masons room ready. I will post pictures once I pick some stuff out!

It's A...

We are having another sweet baby boy! I had a feeling it was a girl and was a little caught off guard (which is silly considering there is a 50/50 chance) but we are very excited! I've been looking into new bedding today!

His little profile looks similar to

And you can definitely tell its a boy! Ha. This is a shot looking at his booty.

We had a bowling/reveal party last night for our friends and I will hopefully post pictures tomorrow. We had a blast!

Today is our 5 year anniversary. We are going to Restuarant Iris tonight and I am pumped! Have been waiting for months now! 

Happy Saturday!

We haven't been up to much lately besides working and playing. I thought I should write
down some things Mason is doing these days.

When he asks for milk, he makes sure we realize he wants cow's milk. We didn't know why in the world he would ask for cows milk (I mean we have never given him goats milk). But I saw a baby Einstein video at Mrs. Pat's house that was talking about cows milk.

*I've already mentioned this before but he calls my mom Mickey Mouse.  Who knows why.  But the name has stuck and I'm pretty sure this new baby will call her the same  Gami is out, and Mickey Mouse is in!

*This kid loves cars. We have blue car, red car, etc. etc. etc.  It's a serious problem.

*Poor little guy cannot say "truck" for the life of him. We try to have him say T-ruck because it beats "f***".

*He has a ton of little friends at daycare and has gotten pretty good at sharing SOMETIMES. We of course have our moments but at the children's museum, he kept trying to share things with the other kids.

*If you ask what is in Mommy's belly, he will say baby. I don't think he quite gets it but we are getting there. He does say its a baby sister so we shall see.

Speaking of baby, here is a picture at 17 weeks. I will not post many pictures because no one likes to see your body expanding even if it is because of baby. And this baby is expanding my body MUCH faster this go around.

Here is our picture from the children's museum last weekend. It is horrible. Haha

The Daytona 500 came on the other night and Mason was in heaven! He pushed his cars round and round the coffee table.

And when it was time to go to bed, he lined them up like this. Pretty smart little guy.
