Laying Low

My little helper, before a week ago she wouldn't
touch her vacuum & now she loves it

The other day she got home from daycare & by 5 she was already
saying she wanted a bath, so we did just that and played inside all
afternoon! I didn't mind because it has been so hot here lately
so an afternoon inside was a good deal!

We had a tea party, read books and done puzzles.
It was then I realized Aleigha is learning her numbers.
She can count to ten with no problem but she was
picking each number up & telling me what it was.
I was so proud of her!

And this little guy went Monday to get his summer
haircut. He had a few tangles so they shaved him
completely. I was a little shocked when I first
got there to pick him up but I'm sure Bentley
will be much cooler now :)

So that's what we've been up to. Not to much, just laying low!
I hope everyone is having a great week! I'm looking
forward to spending this 3 day weekend with my
family. On Saturday our nieces from Alabama will be
here to spend a month with us and I'm excited.

Gone Fishing

This past weekend our nephew Dareion came to visit.
He loves fishing & so do we so we spent all day
Saturday doing just that. My parents came along also
and even though we didn't catch much we had fun.

Aleigha kept saying she wanted to touch it!

Here's Dareion with his first fish! He's already asking
to come back so he can go fishing again.

When we were looking at these pictures on the
computer last night Aleigha kept saying
"That scare me Mommy", ha!
I thought it was cute, she is the one holding the
fish but looking at it in pictures scared her.

After fishing we went to my parents to grill & swim
and that long day wore this little girl completely out!

Summer Fun

Last weekend we spent most of our time
hanging out with Tyler. Saturday we went to
the park for a few hours to let them play.

Tyler loved playing in the water, he kept trying to
get Aleigha to play with him but she wasn't having it.
She'll get in my parent's pool & doesn't want to
be held, she just wants to go at it by herself but
will not run through water spraing out of the ground!

He found some little boys to have a water war with

When we weren't playing at the park Tyler was riding
Aleigha around in her little jeep.

Since she was sick most of last week we pretty much
stayed home or were at the doctor's office. She is much better
now & is still on antibiotics so were good for now. Hopefully
we stay this way. We've been enjoying the summer heat,
fishing & swimming.
What have you all been up to?

Pre-K Graduate

Last Friday my nephew, Tyler, graduated Pre-K.
We are so proud of him, he's such a smart little booger.

Here he is after getting his diploma!

The graduate & I

Right after his graduation I headed straight to the doctor's
office with Aleigha. She had a barky cough  that would
not stop. She had croup :( She was just getting over
that & Tuesday night she started running high fever so we went
back to the doctor & her white count was 30,000...way to high.
So this little bacterial infection has caused her to get a shot
yesterday & 1 again today. She's feeling much better this
afternoon & I'm so thankful. I hate when my monkey is sick.
Other than that it has been an uneventful week. I hope
everyone has had a better week than us, I'm looking forward
to a very lazy weekend!

Who Knew

Aleigha loves bath time

But Crayola bath drops make it that much better

Who knew colored water would make bath time
that much better!

Happy Mother's Day

Today I am so thankful for this little blessing,
bringing the joy of motherhood into my life.
I don't even remember what life was like
before motherhood. I don't think theres
any better feeling than being called Mommy!
I love you so very much Aleigha.

And then there's my Mom. I am so lucky and
blessed to have such an amazing mother.
I can count on her no matter what. I dont
know where I would be without her.
I love you Momma!

Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderfuly ladies.

I hope your day is as great as mine has been!

2 Year Check-Up

On Friday we headed to the doctor for
Aleighas 2 year check-up
(yes i know we are a month late)
She was being such a little ham once we got
back in the room and she was so
curious about all the babies she could
hear crying in other rooms.

She weighed in at 29 lbs. and was 34" tall,
she's in the 75th percentile for kids her age
My BIG girl!

She only had to the Hepatitis shot this go
around and she handled it quite well.
I think it has to do with the fact that she knew
we were about to leave & she could get a
sucker on the way out :)

She's growing way to fast that it kinda makes
me a little sick at times. I don't want to take
any time with her for granted. I have the summer
off before starting nursing clinicals in August so
I plan on spending all of my time with this
little monkey.

Happy Monday

What a weekend we had! On Friday night
we head to my parents for dinner, my brother
and nephew were there for the weekend so
Aleigha & Tyler got to play...until 11 pm...
she passed out on the way home.
Henry had a softball tournament on Saturday
so Aleigha & I headed back to my parents
to play a little.
They let Tyler ride the lawn mower & he wanted
to pull Aleigha in the wagon so bad, so we let him.

I left Aleigha and went home to get ready
for a crawfish boil some friends were having
and oh did we have fun. I don't think I've
laughed that much in a very long time.
On Sunday Aleigha came home early & went
spent the whole day out & about.
First we headed to the Boardwalk for a little
shopping. Here she is loving on Daddy.

(how cute is she with her little Dora purse)
I dont even bother bringing her stroller anymore
because she loves these little rent-a-cars.

We left there and headed to the park. The
water side opened up on the 1st & I forgot
so she didn't have her swimsuit on but it wouldn't
of mattered anyway. She would get close but
as soon as the water sprayed up she would
run right back to us. Maybe next time!

So we played in the sand instead.

Your going the wrong way monkey!

She had a fun day playing in the sun.
We had a little more shopping to do after we
left the park so needless to say we were
all a little tired by the time we got home.
I hope everyone is having a fabulous Monday!
