New Babysitters

 Jett started at his new babysitter this week.  I cried a lot. They will love him and make sure he is taken care of.  He will be one of a few children.  He is the youngest.  I am thankful to have an alternative to daycare for him, but have had to adjust to him not being with his Great Grandmother.

Boy Blue's Ole Miss Morning


 Jett has grown to love his new play pretty.
 Andrew and his siblings have been super sweet to my growing boy, even working to teach him how to crawl.

 Sadie has been loving on him.
 He has hit a growth spurt and no longer has knuckles, just little pudgy dents where they should be.
 He kicked back and relaxed on B one afternoon.
 He wants to stand more than sit.
 A bib is our new best friend and as much as I hate to see a bib covering up an outfit, it is a must.  His daddy thought that it should be his SuperBaby Cape, rather than a drool stopper.
 His sweet little feet almost fill up his size three kicks, and those fat little thighs caused me to remake several of his little bubbles to make the legs bigger.
 We visited Mamaw for some love before the week at our new babysitter.
 The pool called our name and this little man is part polar bear, loving the water even though it was icy.
We have run around a lot from one thing to another.  Life is busy with our bundle of boy.

At Last

Mallory and Kyle had a great wedding weekend.  Mal asked me during football season if I would help with her wedding.  I agreed and didn't think another thing about it, until at about 8 months pregnant, she called and needed help getting some ideas for the decor at the venues.  
 Friday night our plans took action and I set about my task of coordinating the bridal party.  It went smoothly and the decorations were beautiful.  These two love birds of 9 years finally tied the knot.  Mal has an eye for all things beautiful, note her fabulous rehearsal dress, imported from Europe.

 Since the couple will be living in Texas this was their going away car.  Perfect.
Her mom was a blonde bombshell.

 It was a beautiful day filled with love, laughter, and fun.

 This sweet cheeks boy is sitting up, spitting up, and keeping his parents up at night. 
Weighing in at a whopping 17 lbs. 7 oz., this huge chunk of a baby is happy, happy, happy.

Daisy Kent's First

 My little cousin, Daisy, turned one on the 22nd. 
 Jett was super excited to be out and about and help her celebrate.

 She got a piano and spent the rest of her party playing with it.
 Rayanne came in from Florida to help celebrate and to meet Jett Boy.

 Daisy and Jett inspecting each other.
New favorite cousins.

Summer To Do List

*I have been mulling over a to do list in my head for the summer.  I can't decide if I want to pick one thing and focus on it, like my house, and make all my to dos center around it, or if I want to do all the random things in my head.
*I'm toying around with the idea of taking a Summer Sabbatical from Facebook.  I just am kinda over seeing all the beach pictures, the fun pool day posts, and I think it will make me harbor bad thoughts, since I will be posted up behind a desk most of the summer.
*I have begun a list of books I want to read over the summer, some about school, some for fun, and some for learning to do new things.
*I will post about my To Dos when they are To Done, that way I won't let myself down when I have to admit, I haven't done any of the things I meant to.
Happy Summer!!!

So Sad

I picked Jett up from Mamaw's house Friday afternoon and found him soundly sleeping in his Nap Nanny.  I must say I was so sad, because starting Tuesday he will be going to another babysitter's home.  I am completely excited about not having him daycare, but so sad that she won't be keeping him anymore.  She has been so good not just for Jett, but for me.  She makes me feel like I know what I'm doing being a parent.  She loves on my baby like I would and has him so spoiled, but so would I, if I stayed with him all day.  She looks at him with the same loving look that Cullen and I do.
I started crying as I walked to the car with him, and I didn't stop until I got home. I called Cullen, just beside myself.  I didn't cry when I had to go back to work, but Friday I more than made up for it.  So Tuesday will be a new day, a new couple to love on Jett, and Mamaw will get to focus on getting her knees well, so she can love on our boy when we come visit.
