1- We sat above the lights, I'm not quite sure Ole Miss even has seats above the lights, but Bama does and oh dear Lord the walk to my seat almost put me in preterm labor.
2.- I firmly believe that Nick Saban sold his soul to the Devil and when the Lord comes again, the Bama football field will open on the 50 yard line and consume him.
3. They are proud of the all their championships...they said the word championship about 400,764,321 times in the pregame spill.
4. Their band is really, REALLY good.
5. After 30 minutes in my seat, I look over to see my dear friend Joanne making her way up to the row in front of me over one section....it really is a SMALL world.

I feel like all I post about these days is babies. Pontotoc is having a bit of a baby boom these days, my friends are having a baby boom, and babies are everywhere. We had three friends have babies in two days. First off on Monday, Mary Collins Jefcoat was born. Shortly after her birth Collins Kate Waldrop was born to Justin and Lauren Waldrop, and on Tuesday Mary Kylie Lovorn came into the world a week early and by a surprise c-section.
Leslie, Haylee and I made our way to the Women’s Center to visit these moms and babies.
I must say that seeing them all at one time set me off a bit. The minute I held Mary Collins she began to cry…I won’t say it didn’t make me a bit nervous. After visiting with Lauren I realized how tired the new parents were, and then seeing Molly who had labored all day only to have a c-section made me a bit uneasy. All moms and babies were fine, but just the uncertainty of it all made the big life change coming for me just a bit uneasy.

On Sunday our Sunday School class showered Anna Claire with baby girl gifts. Chase and Anna Claire have a three year old little boy and as of Monday they have a sweet little girl, Mary Collins.
I say we cut it close because planning a shower within 24 hours prior to birth was risky. Our Sunday School class has grown a lot since we began four years ago. We started with three couples including the teachers. Since then our class has evolved, some have come into the class others have left, but now we have about 10 couples and average about six couples a week. We are not busting out at the seams just yet, but we have grown in the Word and in numbers, and in the coming months we will be adding five babies to the bunch
Mary Collins was the first baby of the bunch and if she is anything like her mom will be the organizer of the group and will keep all our little ones together.

Look closely and you will see Bevo, the Texas mascot.
Taken in the one and only full quarter I stayed for. It had been a long day, I was tired, and my bed was calling my name.

I finally met baby Tyler this past weekend. He is precious and tiny.
Tyler and Mollie came to Tupelo from Hunstville and I was able to help her escape for a little while to window shop and dine, while the grandparents watched Little Man.
He slept almost the entire time I was there and didn't make a peep. He is such a sweet baby. I can't wait to see him again.

How Far Along: 20 Weeks
Size of baby: The size of a Banana
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 3 lbs officially, but unofficially definite gain
Maternity Clothes: I used the rubber band trick on my pants for the first time this week and I noticed that one pair of pants has gotten a bit tighter…maternity clothes are coming for me…
Sleep: I do not feel deprived of sleep at all. I have actually been able to stay up a little later and still get up super early to be crafty. In fact I wake about 2 to make a bathroom trip and by 3:30 I’m ready to tackle my list of projects.
What I miss: I miss muscle tone, a semi flat stomach, and not feeling out of breath.
Cravings: This week I was on the phone with a friend and at the mention of Taco Soup, I had to add the ingredients to my Wal-Mart list.
Symptoms: The baby bump has arrived. I have prided myself in not showing and not gaining weight, but dear heavens the bump is showing almost overnight. Thank the Lord my jeans still fit and I apparently have never worn form fitting tops, because my usual clothes still are my go to items.
Best Moment this week: Still buttoning my old faithful jeans.
Please know the above picture is just for Cullen. Each time we take these photos I try to flatten my stomach as much as possible. Cullen always says...just take one with it poked out...so being silly I did just that this week. Yes, my belly has pooched on out this week, but this dress is not a maternity dress and and no, my tummy does not look like that on a normal basis...but yes I am very aware that it is coming for me.

My brother and his wife brought the kids up this past weekend to celebrate his birthday and my mom's. Of course when they come the world stops and we all sit and just have fun with the babies. While it wasn't Ellie's birthday we saw the dog cake and knew she would just love it.
This sweet boy is six months old. I can't believe it. His little personality is so laid back and he just smiles, jabbers, and scoots around.
He enjoyed eating his fruits and veggies, and was completely happy to just stay in his high chair while the rest of us talked and ate.
