Birth Announcement

Better late than never is what I keep telling myself. These are Annalyse's precious birth announcements. My dear friend Anita did these as a part of Annalyse's baby gift. I told her the colors and what I wanted it to say and she worked her "magic." Thanks Anita so much!! (you can check out her work at

Gigi has been in town for spring break. Yesterday we headed to Tulsa for lunch, shopping, and the aquarium. Mamaw and Papaw had already planned on going to Tulsa for Mamaw to shop. So they met up with us at our favorite restaurant Ted's Escondido's. We had a great time at the aquarium. Thanks for a great week!! Thanks for coming to see us Gigi!!!

Olivia Grace

Isn't she so cute!!!

Spring Snow

First day of spring and we get a foot of snow. Yes, it was CRAZY!!! But Sallie the Snowgirl came back to see us. While some of us Mommies braved the weather to go shopping, some of the Daddies worked hard to make Sallie and another HUGE snowman.

Birthday Party

Happy Birthday Presley! Saturday we went to Presley's 2nd birthday party. It was a gymnastics party. The kids had a great time running around and jumping.

Ruffles and Reptiles

Two of my great neighbors have started a kids clothing business. Very cute clothes for very affordable prices. These are the girls that helped me sew the adorable dress for Olivia Grace last year. So if they can teach this girl how to use a sewing machine, then they MUST be good!!

2 Months Old

I am just a little behind on blogging. Annalyse is now 2 months old (actually it was a week ago Saturday). We have loved every second of her - even in the car seat. This month she has started smiling, cooing, and a little laughing. Olivia Grace loves seeing her smile. She knows just the right things to say to her and has the sweetest little voice when she talks to her. Some of the things Annalyse likes are: being HELD, her swing, bath time, her passy, and someone to talk to her. Some things she doesn't like right now (but we hope to change REALLY soon) are: riding in her car seat and a taking bottle.
Annalyse went for her 2 month checkup last week. Dr. Denton says she's just perfect. Her weight is 10 lb 15.5 oz. Her length is 22.32 inches. Her sweet little head was perfect too (15.24 in). She fell in the 50% for weight, height, and head circumference. She also got her shots. Not fun!! Olivia Grace said she wanted to hold her hand while she got the shots, but as soon as the nurses came towards her with the shots she let go. But she was there for her little sister with moral support. Annalyse screamed for just a second and then cried for a little bit. She didn't have any other problems with the shots though. She is one perfect little baby girl!!

The Weekend

This past weekend Dukes, Aunt Ellen, and Jordan came to Fayetteville for a "baby fix." It was a great weekend. Olivia Grace had her first soccer game of the season, so they got to see her play. She was so excited for them to watch her. She did a great job and made several goals. After the soccer game Brent, OG, Jordan, and Dukes headed off to the Razorback basketball game. They had great seats (4th row). Too bad they LOST in the last minute!! While they were at the game Ellen and I (and Annalyse) went for much needed pedicures!!! We finished off the day with dinner at home and roasting marshmallows over a fire. We had a great visit and they enjoyed being able to see Annalyse and OG. Thanks for coming!!!!
