We have a new camera!!! We just got it in the mail today and are excited to see how this thing works. We've been using a Kodak Easy Share digital for a few years and decided to upgrade since are now taking so many pictures. Here's what we got from Newegg.

Chattanooga Trip

Last weekend we went to Chattanooga for Ross' graduation. We didn't actually go to his ceremony because we didn't think 2 babies would do very well trying to sit still for a couple of hours! :) So, while Ross was graduating we visited the Chattanooga Aquarium. Bryan and Allison (and the rest of us) really enjoyed seeing all the fish, turtles, sharks, penguins, etc. Bryan tried to reach out and grab the fish through the glass. It was priceless.

Anyway, Ross' graduation party was at Pa's house. We got to visit with lots of family that we haven't seen in quite some time. It was great to see everyone. I wish we could have stayed longer!!

Oh, and Bryan did WONDERFUL in the car for 5 hours! He's a trooper, that's for sure!

I Love When You...

*get very still to watch Praise Baby

*talk into a cup to see what you sound like

*laugh when you've figured out how to do something new

*say "ba ba ba"

*laugh at Simba for no reason

*smile at strangers

*have your daddy hold you to pull the cord on the ceiling fan

*watch my mouth move when I talk

*scrunch your nose to huff and puff

*give kisses and kiss yourself in the mirror

*concentrate on an object before you "go for it."

*scream to the top of your lungs just because

*...I just love you!

Happy 9 Months Baby! We love you very much!

Happy Mother's Day Mom

This is my first Mother's Day, but I wanted to recognize my mom today. This is a picture of me as a newborn getting some good moma lovin! :)

Thank you mom for bringing me in to the world. Thank you for all of your guidance and unending love. Thank you for being one of the wisest people I know so I can turn to you for advice. Not just any advice either, but godly advice. Thank you for making our house a home and now a place to come home to and feel loved. You certainly are the best role model for me. I pray I will be half the mom you are.

I love you!

Matt as a little boy...cute huh!?

Looks Like Love

Laughing at Simba

Bryan has been loving Simba for a while now, but last night he started laughing at her. I was sitting on the floor with him and she was up in her chair. Next thing I knew Bryan spotted her and started cracking up! I mean a full belly laugh! He did it several times. This is him laughing at her again this morning. :)

One Year Ago Today

Here are ML and I one year ago. (ML left) Matt, Mom, and I went down to Apalachicola to help ML set up Allison's room and enjoy some time on the beach. So strange to think this is how we looked last year! Now we are chasing the little ones that were growing inside of us!

Psalm 139:14-16--I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

One Cramped Fish

So here's our betta fish, Theta. Yes, that's a flower vase that he's in, and it's totally my fault. He had a nice, big fishbowl to swim around in, and I broke it tonight while cleaning it out. I was washing it out on the inside and trying to rotate it around with soapy hands, and it slipped and hit the side of the sink, and proceeded to shatter all over the place. I'm not sure how I managed to keep from getting cut, but I didn't. Theta is happily swimming around in clean water, there's just not much room to maneuver now! :)
