Go Redbirds!

We woke up Saturday morning thinking about what to take the kids to do! We had been talking about going to a Memphis Redbirds game, but we weren't sure if the kids would have fun because of the horrible heat and well I know they wont like baseball! We decided we would go and lave if it got unbearable!!

To out surprise the kids made it through the entire game plus the fireworks!! We sat on the bluff so Payton was able to run around and play with the other boys and girls at the game!! Macey Jo was well content just laying on the blanket watching the world pass by! We had a good time at the game and the fireworks were... lets just say interesting!

FYI: Don't ever sit on the bluff for the fireworks! We walked about with ash all over us, but luckily no one got burned!

Payton can have fun anywhere she goes just as long as she can run around!! Macey Jo just loves to be outside and watching everything!!

Such a camera ham!!

So here recently Payton has been such a camera ham!! She is so smily and giggly when we pull the camera out!! I love it. She used to always clam up when we would try to take pictures, but now she is so the opposite!

I mean the excitement on her face is priceless every time. Her beautiful, fun smile just brightens the room!

I hope one day she aspires to be a smile model (do they even have those), because she has a huge grin every time we say Payton smile!!

Haha yea I could only wish to get one smile every time i pull out my camera! Here lately this is what it is like to get a picture of Payton! She has no interest what so ever to smile for me!! Oh well she is still so beautiful and so grown up in these pictures!! But I am still waiting for my big ole cheese!!

Love you sweet girl!

Carrots anyone...

Some cute little girl did not enjoy her very first food... Carrots.
I think she maybe swallowed two bites of it!
I probably should have started out with cereal, but it was dinner time so I said what the hay!

My dad can arrest your dad!!!

I bought this onesie when I was pregnant with Payton!! I thought it was so cute and very true in our family!! So of course I kept it around for Macey Jo to wear too! The pictures say it all! Payton was a baby that had to always be doing something! Macey Jo is very content on just being held!! The one thing they do have in common though... Are their daddy's big blue eyes!!

Sorry about Richard's head cut off here! I guess I was trying to hurry so I could get Payton back!! I love my girls and my husband to death!!

4th of July!

Happy 4th of July from our family to yours!!

The 4th of July is such a fun holiday in my eyes! Great food, great people, and awesome fireworks! We started our afternoon out at Darlene's for an awesome cook-out. Frogmore stew was on the menu there!! It was delicious!! Payton also loved the hotdogs so much she ate 3 of them! I thought she might puke afterwards, but she didn't. After dinner we left to go watch the Fireworks in Germantown. My mom and Tessa were there too!

Payton wasn't has scared as I thought she would be. She sat in her daddy's lap and watched the entire show! Macey Jo sat in my mom's lap with her ears covered. I was so impressed that she pretty much saw every firework that went off that night! We had a wonderful time spending the afternoon and night with family and friends!

My sweet 4 month old

Macey Jo....
I cannot believe you are already 4 months old! Why is time flying by us! It seems like just the other day you were born and your sister was so jealous of you! Now she loves to talk to you and smile at you and you love smiling back at her!

-You weigh 15.4 pounds and are 26 in. long
-You wear 3-6 month clothing
-You drink 6 oz every 3-4 hours usually
-You sleep all night long most nights
-You will giggle but it usually takes an act of congress to make it happen
-You love to smile at your big sister
-You can roll over from stomach to back, you are so close to rolling over the other way
-You are starting to look a lot like me
-You ate your first food which was Carrots, not a big fan yet

Macey Jo we love you with all our hearts! We are so thankful you are ours and that we get to watch you grow! Words can not express the love we have for you in our hearts!!

-Love: Mommy, Daddy, and Payton-
