a quote for Maj


Saw this and it instantly reminded me of my sweet, crazy, adventurous Major. 

I've got to get this boy grown without crushing his wild side, but keeping him calm in all the right ways.

4 months with Breaker

Breaker turned 4 months old on July 10.

I had a hard time choosing which chair picture to use this month. He was so cute in each one! 
To get Breaker's monthly chair picture, I always have to wait for Joey to get home because Breaker gives his biggest smiles to his daddy. 

So this month:
Breaker still hates being on his tummy. 

He started giggling and he's really ticklish on his chin. Shep is always coming up to him and tickling him, saying "give me that chin!" 

Already in Size 3 diapers. 2s just we're not cutting it anymore. 

Started reaching for the toys that hang from his playmat. 

Usually goes to bed around 7:30, wakes around 12/1 to nurse, goes back to sleep  easily and wakes again at 5ish, then sleeps until 7:30ish. 

Some of my favorite Breaker pictures from his 4th month...

I love all the pictures we got of him with our family and friends. We loved introducing him to Kentucky!




Pretty accurate representation of my boys. Sweet Shep, calm Breaker and crazy Maj. 

Always happy. And I love this outfit. 


No more pictures, Mom!


Major climbs in bed with him and steals his paci every chance he gets. 


Breaker went to Yellowstone. 

And got to see Old Faithful!

Wish I could stay like this all day.

The last of our Hilton Head pictures!

Angel baby asleep at the beach. 

Shep and Grayson building sand castles. 

Belly shirts FTW. 


How cute is Grayson?


The babies woke up so we had a little photo shoot. 


Breaker's toes in the ocean for the first time!

 I love these pictures of Breaker and Madelyn. 

How sweet are they!?

All 6 of them before we headed out to dinner. 

Dinner at Carolina Crab Co. 

This angel timed his naps every single night with dinner. So with Shep happy with his friends and Breaker asleep, Joey and I ate uninterrupted. It was wonderful. 


We got poured rain on and somehow Amy and Laura's hair still looks perfect and mine looks like a wet cat :(

After he was done eating Shep kept telling me he wanted to go to "the chip store."  Ok.

When everyone's staring at you because you're letting your kid get soaking wet.

Best buds. 

Amy was standing with the babies and people kept asking about her triplets. 

The big boys. 

Ending the night with wine slushies and watching The Bachelorette. My kind of night!

Hilton Head 2016 :: 2

Another morning at the pool.  Breaker's first time in the water! He just dipped his toes in. 


Joey, Shepherd, Tyler, Grayson...and some random kid that wouldn't get out of the way ;)

Little miss Madelyn is already as sassy as can be ;)

At dinner.
Side note: Please disregard my hair in every single picture from our 2 week vacation.  I'm just going to go ahead and warn you.  First of all, it has a mind of its own in humidity.  Second of all, I get every other person in my family dressed and happy and then I do myself last, which means I usually look like a hotttt mess.  Third, I am kicking myself for cutting it.  Long hair is easier to style, even if short hair is easier to manage.  OK, moving on.


So the best thing ever, is having a child that is old enough to sit at the other end of the table with his friends and eat his meal without your help and you can relax and enjoy your meal for the first time in like, four years.

The child whisperer:

So I was done eating and Shep was getting restless so I took him outside to walk around.  This is what he does when I try to get a picture of him.
Side note: He also wore this shirt on our Hilton Head vacation 2 years ago.  Yes I remember stuff like that.  He gets a lot of wear out of his clothes since he grows at such a slow rate.


Went back and got his friends to walk around with us. Little boys are just the sweetest.  I love watching them explore!


Breaker Blue's 1st vacation!

Just missing our Maj!

Ok, so Tyler made up the most fun game. I was obsessed and I wish I could play it right now.
You play in couples and everyone has to write down however many random questions they can think of.  We were googling trying to come up with good ones.  After we played this the first time, I spent the entire next day brainstorming good questions and writing them in my phone.
So to play, put all of the questions in the middle and each person takes turns reading a question.  If a girl reads it the guys have to answer and vice versa.  Then your spouse has to guess what your answer will be.  If you both say the same thing, you get a point.  It was so fun!
We had questions like: 

"What does your spouse do that annoys you?"
"What was your favorite vacation?"
"Who would play you in a movie?"
"If your spouse was famous, what would it be for?"
"If your mother in law was an animal, what would she be?" 

(Rhonda - I know you're reading this and I said dachsund! ;)

Once all of the questions are up, whoever has the most points, wins!
