Birthday Boy!

Our first baby is 6 years old today! He may be a little hairy and have really smelly breathe but we still love him!

 This was the very first day we had Divot! After his first bath!!!

 Sweet Boy chewing on me!

Still my all time favorite photo of Div-Bone!
 this was the summer of 07
 Halloween of 08
 summer of 09 with his cute haircut
this was 2011 right after we got our new camera

Amelia has really started to love the pups and Divot is "more than happy"! He has adjusted to baby sister really well. He is always near her. I saw all the time I don't really need a baby monitor because Divot comes and gets me all the time!

I think he is a great big brother

 Hahaha she was giving some birthday love this morning!

Divot you are still our sweet boy and I love you so much! I knew you would be a trooper when baby was born! You love her just like the rest of us! Happy 6th Birthday to our sweet boy!!!

I don't have much to blog about! Amelia was not feeling good all weekend with a fever. We stayed in all weekend and snuggled with her.
I have a ton of photos in my phone that I need to post. I thought today would be a perfect time to do it!!

I have been keeping busy with all my sewing projects! I soon will be getting a new sewing/embroidering machine.. Thanks to my wonderful husband! Happy early bday and anniversary to me!!!
Look at my sweet girl in this adorable dress I made!!

My friend Mary gave birth to her twin boys on Thursday and this was part of her gift!

I made myself a cute flower shirt!

My co-workers zebra skirt for her birthday!

Our after bath cutie! I don't know what it is about Amelia after a bath a wrapped up in a hooded towel but I can't get enough of it!!! She is so darn cute!

My best friend, Val, and sweet baby on Val's birthday!

My two favorite loves.... loving this photo so much!

Sweet girl today! I love her outfit!

And because Divot needs some blog love! Please excuse his dirtyness... He helped me clean out the flower beds this morning! Which I haven't touched all summer. So you can just picture the mess! I am to ashamed to post a picture of what they looked liked!

For my Notes

We had Amelia's Well Baby check up today so I wanted to document her stats from the appointment. Amelia, you are now in the 10th percentile! You finally moved up! You weighed 13.9 pounds, 26 inches long and your head measured 41 cm.  Tiny princess but getting so big!!
Because it just wouldn't be right without posting pictures of the star of the blog here a few I snapped this afternoon!

Divot doesn't really  know what to think about Baby Sis!

My favorite Girl!

Hope you all have a wonderful day! We are staying in because Amelia isn't feeling her best (not that you can tell in these photos!). We are going to try to stay cool our house gets so HOT in the afternoon.... I can't wait until we are not in 100 degree weather!

Get Caught Up

Geezz..... I know I have been slacking. But I have been staying busy between being a working mom, sewing like crazy and traveling.Speaking of traveling, Amelia and I went to see my parents and sister for the 4th of July. I know we are a few weeks late on posting.. but Hey.. give me a break!
As I mentioned before my parents are in in GA. It was the first time we visited and I can not wait to go back! I braved the trip alone with Amelia. We flew and had a layover so I was some what nervous about getting to my next flight on time. But I did great (patting myself on the back) and Amelia was the BEST baby!! She is such a good traveler! I am one proud momma!

My mom volunteers at the local museum and the director is leaving so they had a little party there to honor her. My mom and the director have become fast friends and I know they will miss each other like crazy!

Amelia giving full blow out sugars!

They live in such a cute charming town. It has that historic feel as you drive through town. Maybe it was the HUGE old Antebellum Homes lining the streets and the beautiful fountain down on the town square. It is a sweet town that you could just drive or walk around all day and find entertainment... walking when it is maybe not 100 degrees plus! I have decided that we will be making a trip in the fall... when I can be outside for more than hour at a time! I forgot to get out my camera when we were driving around. I was to busy looking around!

Because it was so darn hot we mostly hung out at the pool... which is all that I had on my list of things to do! :) Amelia loved and I mean LOVED the pool! She cried every time I would take her out.

She would just slash and squeal while I held her in the pool! I did bring her float but she wanted to be held in the water.She didn't really fit to well in the float, it scared me so we took turns holding her.

We did tour a Antebellum Mansion called Hills and Dales Estate. It was beautiful! I am glad we went! My plan is to go back when it isn't a million degrees out and tour the gardens more. We didn't get to spend very much time because poor Amelia was so HOT! If you have time click on the link to see their website. It is worth it! The Callaway family built the home and gardens. This family owns pretty much everything around town! Kinda reminded me of the Waltons here in AR! HA Here are so beautiful photos I snapped!

this was a swimming pool back in the day!
Jen and Blake sitting in "Lovers Lane"

Another cool thing is that Robert Duvall was there the day before us! I took a photo of his John Hancock on the guest book!! Man, I can't believe we missed him!

The house was amazing but no indoor photographing was allowed! But I did get some really cute pictures of Amelia on the porch after the house tour!

After about 2 days of being at my parents my camera battery died! I was so upset. I didn't even think about packing an extra! So I don't have anymore photos... BOOOO

This is a funny tidbit. On our first flight coming back we had a flight attendant off duty right next to us. As she sat down she said "OH Great, by the screamer! At least she is cute" I wanted to Hit her across the face brag about how wonderful my little Amelia is but she did say she was cute. I told her not to worry because my girl is great on flights and she will mostly likely fall alseep during take off. She shrugged her shoulders made a "yeah right" face and closed her eyes. As it turns out Amelia did just what I said. She was feel to sleep during take off and stayed asleep until we landed! HA The woman did mention during the flight "I guess you were right she is one good baby and a cute one too!
