I was inspired by Susan's list earlier this week so I created this layout. It only took me 3 days to get it done. lol I miss just being able to sit down and scrap for hours on end. I guess I have to give up something (partly) to enjoy this little bundle of goodness.

I am going to do one for T as well, but I have to get some pics of him first. I have been pretty busy this week, running around. His last day of preschool is next Wednesday. He starts Kindergarten in the fall! Kindergarten!! It seems like she was just born yesterday and he was born the day before. Time flies when they are little. I am trying to remember to embrace the miracles of everyday because they only happen once and time is too short.

ps-Susan, I got the magazine! Thanks! I paid it forward by offering to watch my friend's daughter while she took her other daughter to the doctor.

A boy and his dog

Well, what used to be his dog. C decided to try his hand at quail hunting this past year and bought a puppy 2 summers ago. The dog, a Brittany, was a beautiful dog and very sweet and loving (even when T kicked, hit, chased, and fell on her). The major problem was that she required LOTS of exercise, and I mean LOTS. And since I was pregnant and then had a baby to take care of, I could not walk her everyday. C never had time to walk her when he got home in the evenings, which means that she had to find ways to relieve her boredom. That relief was usually in the form of digging up the flower beds that C worked on all day to make them look nice. I honestly had good intentions of starting to take her for walks when the doctor ok'ed exercise for me (post c-section). Then we found out that C is probably getting orders for a one year unaccompanied tour overseas with follow on orders (hopefully) to Germany. I am not about taking care of a high maintance dog in addition to 2 kids, one of which will be miserable without his daddy around. Plus, I did not think it was fair to her that she wouldn't be able to go out and hunt/train on a regular basis, which she absolutely loves to do. So, C and I decided to give up the dog. We contacted the breeder to see if he wanted her back and he said he would take her back. C and T drove down today to drop her off. C called once they had completed the task and said that T was very upset about it and cried for a while. He thinks that we got rid of her because she was digging up the flower beds. He keeps telling C that we could get another puppy that would not dig up the flower beds. I feel so sad for him. He aggrevated the dog like crazy, but he loved her to pieces. I guess we will have to get him a rabbit or something. lol Those don't require LOTS of exercise, do they?

They grow so fast

I can hardly believe that my little cutie is 3 months old already!! I took her for some professional photos last week. She didn't do as well as T would do for the camera. But I still got a couple of good pics of her. I came home and took some more of her and some of T, but could not get them together because she was ready for a nap. Next time, hopefully!

While we were at home in SC, C and T went to a minor league baseball game with C's dad and uncle. T had the greatest time! When we got back home, C bought him a baseball glove, and then I got him a bat and a hitting tee. He is pretty good. He can hit the ball when it's pitched to him even. I think it would be funny if he loved baseball instead of soccer! lol C would not be too happy about that though.

That's all I have for now.
