One morning...

Mornings are his best! Last week I ran to the summit to return one thing and got him out to hold him. He loved looking around so we decided to walk around...then he fell asleep. It was so nice just walking around and looking. He loves to be held for sure. My mom and I took him to the summit a few days ago as well and he did the same thing! She held him while I searched for a dress for The Gala and then was able to look for a little bit.. it was nice! 

I can tell the reflux still bothers him and it's a day to day thing but some days are better than others. I know he'll grow out of it. He has had several nights sleeping from 8:30-4:45 and 8:30-5:30. I hope that stays because that amount of sleep has been fabulous! 

Beckham loves to hear you sing the abc's, still loves to look at his sister, and loves a good walk. We left him for the first time this weekend when we went to ATL to a wedding. The break was a much needed one but both of our kids were great with their grandparents. It's nice to be able to have a break and not have to worry!!! 

ATL wedding

Jeremy and I planned a weekend in ATL and then I found out one of my close college friends was getting married so we planned it the same weekend. It was gorgeous weather and some much needed time away from the kids. We did some shopping and eating out. We had a blast at the wedding! Thanks to my parents and Jeremy's mom for keeping the kids! 

Nope...not pregnant again, the flap part of the dress just did something weird in these pics
Janet...another college friend who lives here in Birmingham too

And the last picture!!! Kitchen counter tops replaced (bc of crack but same marble ones) and the new farmhouse sink and faucet. I love it!!!

2 months old!

2 months old and I can't believe it! The sweet smiles, coos, laughs...I love it! He is growing too fast. He has decided that he likes his swing now, and the bathroom floor with the heater on is still a favorite too. Lots of commotion, talking, loud music in the car, makes him happier than just silence. I guess that's a good thing : ) 

Charlee Kate has adjusted very well to him and loves him. She gets so upset when he cries, especially if the reflux is bothering him because it's a piercing cry. She has truly been a big help! God knew what he was doing for me when he gave me Beckham at this time ❤️❤️😃

More snow...

This round of snow was definitely different than the snow 2 weeks ago. However it came fast like it did 2 weeks ago. It was gorgeous and the night sky was SO bright, which was odd but made it so pretty. Our neighborhood crew set outside to play, make snowmen, and make snow cream. They had so much fun and even had snowball fights. The memories Charlee Kate has made are wonderful.

More beach time!

What a great beach get-a-way! We thought of staying a few more days because more snow and ice are on the way to Bham!!! However, lots going on this week so we want to be home just in case the ice and snow happen to escape us. We couldn't have ask for a better time at the beach and weather was amazing!!! It was last minute and such a good decision. So thankful my parents have this place so we could get a change of scenery and a little rejuvenation. 

Jeremy and Charlee Kate...we were sitting outside some shops having a snack!

Building a sand castle! They had fun. She decorated it with shells
He took a good nap on the beach!
Still snoozing good! All bundled up even though it was 64 degrees.

I still stop and think I am living in a dream with this healthy baby boy and little girl. So much goodness!!

Beach Vaca!

A well deserved change of scenery! I am all about winter but being inside so long was driving me crazy! Jeremy had work to do at the beach, we had lots of kitchen work being done at home, so off we went! Beckham did surprisingly well on the ride down. Only has to stop once and he slept the rest of the time. 

When we arrived!!
The first night was cold but a fire at the beach is fabulous!
We did a little shopping! Who knew Saks had headbands! Well...a headband is CK's favorite so she started trying them on. We did walk out with several but none of these.

Sitting outside, enjoying lunch! 

Jeremy and Charlee late looking for seashells. Chloe made it to the beach with us too.
Beautiful sunset!
