May 29, 2010

May 29 my brother graduated from Dade County High School. He was SO happy because he never really was a big fan of school. I can remember the days when I was in high school and he was in elementary school and he would make himself throw-up every morning on our way to school! I seriously can't remember a time that he did like it!! We celebrated with a party afterwards with tons of friends and family but I didn't get any pictures. I was to worn out from trying to keep Jett calm during graduation!! Congrats Cole... we are proud of you!

MAy 22, 2010

My sister got married on May 22. Everything from the flowers to the hair turned out to be absolutely perfect. Jett and I had to make a trip to see the doctor that morning so we were running a little late all day but that is nothing new in my world. We were told to be there at 11 to start hair and all the fun stuff and I think Jett and I finally made it around 2:45! No biggy.... we made it! Poor little guy had a double ear infection once again! We have 100s of pictures but here are a few of my favorites.....

May 21, 2010

On with our busy May!! My sister got married on May 22 so we spent or 21st at their rehersal and dinner following. It was so cute. They had a "country casual" theme that was decorated with bandanas, daisys, and all things country. And the best part was we had Sticky Fingers BBQ which was divine!! Here are a few pictures from our evening!

Oh... and I forgor to mention Jett had been running a VERY high temperature since the night before so I can't believe how happy he looks in these pictures.

I love this picture! Jett getting lot of love from Becca and Bailey.

An Auburn Graduation

My sister graduated from Auburn Uinversity on May 14, 2010. She graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education plus Suma Cum-Laude (a 3.85 GPA or better). I drove down with my brother but left Neal and Jett at home. Neal had to work and I am so glad I didn't take Jett because the graduation was 3 hours long and it was SOO crowded and we were practically sitting on the roof!! I was so proud of my little sister! Now she is just trying to find a job!!!

May 9th

May 9th was our 1st "official" Mother's day (althought I was hugely pregnant last year)! I had to work that day but I got home around 3 so I did get to spend some time with my little guy! He also stood by all alone.. not holding on to anything! What a perfect present!

Catch Up

Well I know I am officialy the worst blogger but we have had an EXTREMELY busy last few months. I am going to try to get everyone caught up on what has been going on with us since the beginning of May! I will do one post at a time... SO May 1st!

We started our month off with another doctor's appointment. Jett woke up not acting like himself and he wasn't eating well so we were off to the dr. Jett saw Dr. Rawlings that day and was not very happy that Dr Smith was not working! I think he cried the entire time Dr. R examined him. He thought he had Strep Throat but thankfully that test was negative but he did say he had some type of throat infection and another ear infection in BOTH ears.... geez!! So another antiobiotic once again.... Augmentin this time. After he started the antibiotic he was MUCH better!

That night was the Mother Daughter Banquet at our church and I debated all day on whether or not to go because Jett was sick. We ended up going and he did so good... as always! We went with my mom, sister, 2 of my mom's sisters, and my cousin Canaan. We had a really good time and we got to spend some quality time with my mom!

A Year Ago Today

A year ago today I had my 38 week doctor's appt with Dr. Bowers. I had an ultrasound scheduled for that morning to check Jett's measurements and weight and my appt with the doctor was later on in the afternoon. I can remember it like it was yesterday! I went for my ultrasound and I got to see the little guys beautiful face and it made my day. She started with the measurements and told me that Jett hadn't gained any weight in the past week and he had developed a Hydrocele. She said Hydroceles were normal in little boys and it was nothing to worry about but that is just something you can't tell a pregnant lady! I was EXTREMELY worried. My appt with Dr. Bowers went great... my BP and swelling were both down but he was concerned about Jett not gaining any weight. He told me we probably needed to schedule a C-Section (which he was already planning on doing due to Jett's weight) for 1st thing tomorrow morning! OH MY... I was shocked but I was SO ready! I can't believe that a year has already passed! He was worth every pound I gained (which was alot) and every stretch mark I still have!!!! He has made my life absolutely perfect!

11 Months

I have been waiting to do Jett's 11 month post until I could get a better picture of him but that just doesn't happen these days. He is so busy all the time. I know I always say this but I am in shock that he is already 11 months old and about to turn 1 year old. He is getting so big and turning into such a little.. I mean big boy.

11 Months
May 12, 2010

  • You weigh 23.3 lbs.
  • You moved up to a size 4 diaper because the 3s were cutting off your circulation!
  • You are wearing 12-18 month clothes.
  • He is still a wonderful sleeper but hates to fall asleep.. he fights sleep so bad!
  • He has always been a momma's boy but he has REALLY turned into one these days and I love it. He always wants to be in the same room as me or do whatever I am doing. He even goes in the bathroom with me!

Always busy.. trying to stand in his bed.

  • He is still a GREAT eater and will eat just about anything. We started eating the Gerber Lil' Crunchies this month and he LOVES those. He has had the Mild Cheddar and the Veggie Dip... we still haven't tried the Zesty Tomato but I heard those are the best!
  • He eats just about any kind of table food and I think he would rather have that than his baby food but I can't say I blame him.
  • He has 9 teeth.. 4 on top and 5 on the bottom. He got one of his Molars this month and he looks so cute when he smiles.
Oh how I love that sweet smile!
  • He smiles all the time and is still such a happy little guy! He is so pleasant and easy going.. He gets that from me!
  • He is a pro at drinking from a cup and he has learned to sip from a straw. He thinks that is funny and it always makes him laugh.
  • We still have the paci but I am hoping to loose those soon.
  • He is SO close to walking.... I am thinking it is going to happen any day now. He stands by himself at time but when he realizes he isn't holding on to anything he either squats down of grabs the nearest thing!

Playing in the ball pit at Natalie and Brian's.

  • He loves to play with anything. He has more toys than he knows what to do with but he is so fascinated by all of them. He really likes the ones that play music.
  • He still loves to dance!
  • He talks more each day and has started to make these screaching noises. I think he finds them funny because he laughs so hard after he does it!.
  • He is starting to be a loud little guy and he is SOOOO active. I can hardly keep up with him and I am just wondering what I am going to do when he starts walking.
  • He is so playful (and amazed) with anyone. He loves to interact with people.

I forgot to tell you how much Jett loves Ice Cream!

  • He plays tug of war with his dad and makes the funniest face and growls when he is trying to get whatever they are "tugging" for.
  • He has started clapping and he claps when he does something good or if someone else does good.
  • He loves being outside and will play as long as we will let him. He tried to eat a worm this month while we were working in yard one day. I am glad I looked to see what was in his hand and heading for his mouth.

  • He rode his 1st horse. Neal and I both grew up around horses and Neal and my dad are both crazy about them.... well I think Jett has the fever. He loves them and rubs on them and plays with them. You can just tell by his face that he is amazed!
  • He hates to sit down these days. He always wants to be up on those feet and moving around. He cruises around all of our furniture.
  • He has the best little personality and is SO much fun to be with!
  • I am so thankful for him and I can't imagine my life without him in it.

Sweet, sweet, sweet... I could just eat up those toes.

Playing outside... he has a fascination with straws.

Helping Mommy in the flower bed. He refused to sit.. I guess laying down in the dirt was much more fun! This was when he tried to eat the worm!!
