Beach Trip Recap

So we had a pretty good time at the beach. Besides some of the unnecessary drama that ended up happening....it was fun. The baby really liked it. I wasn't sure how he was going to react. We took him down to the water almost as soon as we got there (after a little nap, of course). I thought it might be too loud for him, but it wasn't. We stuck his feet in and he screamed! The water is still pretty cold so I think it shocked him. It hasn't really had a chance to warm up yet, it'll be better when we go in August.

The next day we set up our canopy and just relaxed next to the water. The baby fell asleep on the quilt we had for him. Then when he woke up his sister buried him in the sand. And when I say buried, I mean really buried!!! Haha! He was eating handfuls of sand. I was a little panicky about it, but I figured I better get used to it...I do have a boy after all!

He also really loved the pool. They had a heated pool so it was nice and warm. I think he could have stayed in there all day! He looked so relaxed in his little float.

All in all it was a pretty nice trip.

These top teeth are killing us! I have had a screaming baby for two days now and there is no sign of it getting better! As frustrated as I get I still feel soooo bad for my little one. That's really what makes it sooo frustrating! I want to take his pain away! I'll give him some medicine, it'll help for a little bit and then he'll start screaming again. I can't stand seeing him in pain!!! The bottom teeth didn't hardly bother him at all so I'm surprised these are hurting him so bad. Please keep my sweet baby in your prayers. And maybe after he gets the top two he'll have a break for a little while!

Destin....Here We Come!

WOW! It's been a rough week so far...and it's only Wednesday!!! The baby is working on getting his top two teeth in and they are killing him. Seriously, the bottom two were not that bad. He has been really whiny...especially today. I just feel soooo bad for him because there is nothing I can do :(. On top of that I've been trying to work some, pack for our beach trip next week, and take care of every other little thing that mommies and wives take care of! Haha!

We had a great weekend though. We went and ate at our friends Dan and Jen's house Saturday night. Our other friends Stacy and Jeremy were there too along with all the kids. We had a really good time! And of course Sunday was great too! We went to church and ate at Mamaw's house (yummy!).

We are leaving this weekend for Destin!! YAY! I am so excited. I haven't been in years and have been having major beach withdraws! I'm so ready to be there...mainly so I can stop stressing about all this packing! I always WAAAYYY over pack. Does anybody else have that problem??? I can't help it. I just know if I don't pack it then I'm going to get down there and need it. And I just can't see buying something I already have. Anyway, I'm sure when I get back I'll have a ton of pics to share. I hope everybody is having a good week!

Here are some sweet pictures of my little man :)

It's Been A While!

So I got a new job where I can work from home...yay! It's just keeping me SOOO busy! Every time the baby lays down for a nap, I have to get on the phones. Of course I could do it when daddy gets home at night, but I would much rather spend that time with him and our baby! So needless to say, I don't have much time left to blog, clean, do laundry, wash bottles, shower, all that other stuff I usually do while the baby's asleep! I just have to work it in there somewhere! But so far, I'm liking the job. It's a pretty easy way to make a little extra cash for my family, we'll just see how it goes. It's always nice to feel like your contributing some.

We really haven't had a lot of other things going on. This weekend my 12 year old step-daughter came and stayed with us. We had a really good time. We shopped, ate, and took her to church with us on Sunday. It's nice having her around. She's a ball of fire and a great help with the baby (who, by the way, has his 2nd tooth now!).

It's going to be a busy summer for us. This month we are going to the beach with Adam's family, my family is having us over for the 4th of July, and then we are going with my fam to the beach in August! FUN! Also, throw in there working, VBS(vacation bible school), and taking some time for ourselves. It's going to be busy, busy, busy! Hope everybody is doing well and having a great summer!

Here's some pics from the past weekend!
