It Feels Like Summer!

We recently bought Kay a kiddy pool to go on our back porch and today was the first time she played in it.  We had a blast playing in the sprinkler, and I say "we" because I think I had as much fun as she did!

She was so happy she kept giving me kisses... I think this summer is gonna be lots of fun : )

A Toilet and A Wedding

Well... I know moms everywhere always have stories of how their children are drawn to the toilet... some seeming compelled to throw things into the toilet.. because of course its a huge hole with water in it so why not? 

I have caught Kay throwing empty medicine bottles in the toilet once... and while fun it was for her, I made sure she knew that throwing things into the toilet is not an option and that there would be further consequences for her actions should she do it again. 

Today I am upstairs and I notice quietness.... that is never a good thing especially if Kay is out of my sight.  So I walk in the bathroom with suspicion and I see Kay standing by the toilet smiling.... I look inside the toilet and find her little hand splashing around in the water playing with a piece of left behind toilet paper....GROSS!   (at least it wasn't poop I thought and I could have imagined worse).

I have the feeling this is just the beginning of the nasty toilet stories I will have to tell in the future. haha!
She can be mischevious... but she has such a sweet personality that it just makes me melt!

On another note, here are some pictures from Cale and Jessie's wedding we went to this weekend.

 Doesn't Joey look handsome?

Kay ready to go with Silky Bear in hand!

My mom came and watched Kay a while and helped me make the Groom's Cakes for the wedding.  We got it done and she was a huge help cleaning up in the kitchen.  Thanks Mom!

Some Daddy Daughter dancing... I think Kay was wondering what kind of dancing some people were doing haha.  

Mommy and Kay awaiting the couple to depart!

Conratulations Cale and Jessie! We love ya'll and are so happy for you and your new life together!

A Toddler & A Getaway

This past weekend 2 great things happened.....

Kay started walking!  She has been able to walk for a while but has been too timid to let go of our fingers... but this weekend she just let go and hasn't wanted to crawl since! I can't believe I can call my baby a toddler now...she is really getting big and saying new words all the time.

This was taken as we were leaving for the 2nd great thing... Joey and I's babymoon weekend. 
Joey's parents graciously offered to keep Kay for a weekend so we could have a getaway before Jane comes.  So we pricelined a hotel and got the Adolphus in downtown Dallas for a VERY good price!  It was the fanciest hotel by far that either of us have been to and we felt very pampered. 

There was a full day of shopping (mostly window shopping lol)  and Joey was so patient with me as we went to about 20 different stores trying to find a dress for me! haha.  It would have helped if we could have actually been looking in maternity stores instead of trying to fit into a regular dress : ) .   We finally found one at the end of the shopping day and my feet were killing me!

This was me at 27 weeks pregnant with Kay on our babymoon in San Marcos....

And I thought it was neat that I was 27 weeks pregnant this time too!

We were also there for my best friend Blaire's surprise engagement party.  Congratulations Blaire and Dwight! I can't wait for the wedding : )

It was a nice refreshing time for just Joey and I and for just "me" time... but I discovered that "me" time isn't near as fulfilling as it used to be.  Being a mommy brings way more joy and fulfillment to my life and the Lord has grown me through not having the "me" time I sometimes think I need. 

Besides... being with these two is way more fun : )
