enough said

Yes, it is blurry, but it's the best I could do.

Yes that is a Miller Lite bottle. I have nothing to say about this.

This was before her very first trip to the pool. The swimsuit is a 6-9 month and it's too small!

Helping Daddy move dirt to fill in the giant hole the pool left.

Happy Baby


It has been a while, but so much has gone on. In case you were wondering, the closer a teacher gets to May the busier she becomes. This past month and a half has been a blur. School was super super busy. My very first class graduated 8th grade. I can't wait until they graduate high school. It will be so interesting to see how much they have grown and matured! At school they are building new classrooms. I am one of the "lucky" ones that will get a new room. But for right now they moved me to a room about half the size of my old one. Please remember this is the 2nd time in 2 years that I have moved classrooms. But when I get in this new one, I won't move for a long long time.

Nora Claire...she is 9 months now. She has 6 teeth and is trying to walk. She takes about 8-9 steps and gives in. She hasn't figured out that it is faster to walk somewhere rather than crawl. She never stops moving!!! She looks more like a toddler now than a baby. She is so sweet. You can ask her for a kiss and she'll give you her open mouth kiss. She also gives 'loves" aka hugs. She has developed her own personality which can be sweet sometimes. She loves her baby. She has one at the babysitter, my car, and the house. She drags her baby everywhere. We found out that she loves the pool. I am going to try to post some pictures here shortly. I have alot of catching up to do.

Anthony got a truck! We got really lucky and found a great truck. I will post pictures of that also.

Life is passing us by!

Life is flying by right now. There is just not enough time in the day to totally enjoy it. I guess I enjoyed my Easter Break a little too much. I did want to come back to school, but I didn't want to get up THAT early. It is only 28 days working days until Summer Vacation!!! I am looking forward to that! I promise I am going to upload some pictures tonight or tomorrow from Easter and Avery Island. Let's see if I can do a real quick update on everything...

My birthday was great. Really it was just another day. Anthony got me a new digital camera. I just have to figure out how to get the optimum use out of it. We boiled crawfish at our house. We had to do it in the garage because the outdoor kitchen is not up to Anthony's standards just yet. The crawfish were great and the company was even better.

Easter break went by too fast. We got out of school early on Thursday, April 9th. We left Rayne Friday morning. It was a long drive that seems to get longer with a 8 month old. Yes, Nora Claire is 8 months old!! That is so hard to believe. She is walking with holding your hands. She is standing by herself right now some times. She just started doing that yesterday. She is going to be walking all too soon.

Well, hopefully I will get those pictures tonight.

These are just a few from Easter. When I get a chance I will upload some more. It takes so dang long to upload I will have to find some time. Does anyone know of an easier way?

pictures from this weekend

Here are some pictures from this weekend. We realized that we didn't have any of Nora Claire since she turned 7 months old. So we took some or attempted to.
Is it sad that my sister has to tell me to post on my blog...yes, very. I am trying to stay up-to-date on this, but it is really hard right now. Nora Claire is SOOOOO SOOOOO active right now that it is hard for me to get time to even get on the computer at night.

Speaking of Nora Claire...she is now crawling everywhere and pulling up on everything. She would much rather walk holding your hands everywhere than crawl. She is definitely going to have Anthony's complexion. We went outside for a little bit this weekend and she already has a tan. I think she is also going to have Anthony' curly hair. This morning I had to wake her up to go to the babysitter and she had a little wave going on. It was too cute. I am about to make a statement and I know that many people will have alot of opinions, but please if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. Yes, Nora Claire does sleep in the bed with us. We did it out of necessity the first couple weeks-football and the lack of sleep-and have just continued. I told Anthony that as soon as he was ready that she would go out, but he hasn't said anything yet. She does usually get up at least one time a night. Form whatever opinions you want, but it was our decision and we are prepared to deal with the consequences, whatever they may be.

It feels like life is flying by us. NC is 7 months old!!! I'm sorry, but that is so hard to believe. She is developing her own little personality and now that Anthony doesn't have football or basketball we see him alot more! She loves her Daddy. This week I have play practice at school so Anthony gets to pick her up everyday and play with her until I get done. They get to spend some good quality time together. I still think that she is going to look like her daddy, but some people have different opinions. I have some pictures to post later. Life is just flying by. Her last check up-around 2/20 can't remember the exact date-she was 27 inches long and 17.8 pounds. She is wearing alot of 12 month stuff already. She can fit in some 6-9, but alot of the pants are too tight on her little tummy, but the 12 month stuff is still a little long. Not by much though. We will be in Monticello on Good Friday thru the following Friday. I don't know how I am going to manage to pack that much stuff to last us that long, but I guess I will figure it out.

Oh, almost forgot. We had to move up to a big girl car seat last week. Her feet were hanging off the end of the carrier. She loves her new one. Hopefully this will make trips to AR alot better. They weren't horrible to begin with, but now she can see me and not get freaked out as easily. Now I just need to get a DVD player for her. She loves watching Sesame Street, Barney, and Elmo. She watches these while she is at the babysitter playing. No, she doesn't just sit her down in front of the TV. She always has the TV on NC just plays and when she hears the music for the each show she watches them for just a little bit and then gets back to playing. It is really cute.

Why I'm Here

My husband and I live several hours from my family. I started my blog so that my crew in Arkansas can keep up with my family, which recently went from a 2 member household to 3. I teach, and my husband coaches..... so I often have a lot to VENT as well!
