jam packed

I think lately instead of getting daily updates, I have been throwing several days and different events in one post since I don't have time to sit and type much these days, but that's ok :) Let's see...last week was a good (short) work week. I had to work 4 days, and 2 of those days I was on field trips! On Thursday I took my TV Production seniors to a Career Academy downtown for the day. It was fun getting to spend some extended time with those kids, since I am usually teaching them just one period a day and most of that time is spent running around crazy trying to help them get ready for a live show.

That evening I went to a local event they have like 4 times a year-lullabies and mudpies. A consignment warehouse packed with baby stuff. Easton got a new ride out of it! I saw the car and thought it would be nice for Easton's walks since he loves going around the neighborhood, it had a handle for me to push while he rides. THEN I realize it has a button to push and it goes :) It is battery powered and came with the charger-10 bucks! Drake laughs when we plug it in, saying Easton drives a hybrid. haha

Friday I took my special needs students out to Fort Pickens for the day and then we went to lunch. Luckily the bad weather held off since we were outside. We always have fun! :) Friday night we headed over to Chase and Summer's house. Easton and Elle played with each other in the kitchen. They were both playing with the magnets and kept taking them and handing them back to each other. We wore pjs and ate Chinese take-out. Awesome night!

And Finally last night we went out for Joe's 31st birthday. He wanted to have an 80's themed party. So we headed out to dinner with 80's pop blaring through our speakers...

Here are all of the couples at dinner...

Oh my gosh. I'm not even sure what to say about this. haha
We had an awesome night-constant cracking up, a lot of awkward stares at our wardrobe, heading to the west side of town to go roller skating (very interesting) And my sweet baby was awesome for the baby sitter. One of my old soccer players watched him and was good about sending me pictures and keeping me posted on him. ♥ Now on to enjoy Sunday with the boys. Have a great day!!

Monday Funday!

Yay for the 3 day weekend! It has been amazing ♥ Today was beautiful so we decided to take Easton for his first trip to the zoo.

I think he was excited :)

We started out in the bird area which was so fun.

What the heck is that thing?!

Oh. my. gosh. I am the luckiest girl in the world!

Then we headed to the petting area :)

We walked around and looked at everything and told Easton what everything was. He passed out as soon as I put him in his car seat. So much to take in! :)

Now I am off to enjoy the rest of the evening with my dudes and then it's on to a short work week! Yay!!!

The many faces of little e.b.

lots of stuff

I have a feeling this post will be all over the place, but that is how we have been this weekend and I am loving it. :) Friday while I was at work my parents went to Panama City for the night since my dad had off so Mrs. Traci kept Easton. He was good for her and I of course got my updates throughout the day. Here he is on a walk :) Man, we made one cute kid!
Once we were both home from work we went ahead and took care of the cleaning and grocery shopping so we could knock them out and enjoy our 3-day weekend! Easton had fun helping us do the shopping.
Saturday was a rainy day, we were supposed to be in one of the floats for the mardi gras parade at the beach but decided to stay home since the weather was bad. So we enjoyed some time with each other and then I made these bad boys...
we were invited to Jenn and Ronnie's house for dinner with the gang and we were in charge of dessert so I decided to go all out. These are peanut butter double fudge oreo cupcakes. I even made the frosting. Go me! :) Here are the 2 coolest guys in the world ready to go have fun!

Easton loved Vivian.
This is what happens when you leave Easton with all the guys in the garage for 5 minutes while you get a bottle ready...

We ate tacos and hung out and just enjoyed each other. Before we, Jenn, and Danielle booked our Vegas flight. So the hotel and flight are done. :) One step closer to Vegas!

Today we were up and ready to go zip lining! We picked up my dad and headed out and my mom watched Easton while we all went. It was cold especially up high where it was windy and the trees were swaying back and forth. We had a ton of fun! Drake was enjoying the gift shop :)

Drake got a video of me...

After spending our day there we had dinner at my parents and watched the Amazing Race. Now off to shower and bed to enjoy one more day off! So exciting ♥

Love is in the air ♥

Happy Valentine's umm week I guess. :) Yesterday for Easton's first Valentines Day, we went on a date to the park when I got home from work while we waited for daddy to get off. This kid loves swings. Of course once I got home and showed Drake how happy he was again while at the park, I see Drake looking up wooden swing sets to build in the backyard ♥ Drake gave me a gift certificate for a hot stone massage which was hand delivered by Easton. :)

Today my mom offered to keep Easton for the evening while Drake and I went to see The Vow. She let us pick which day we wanted her to watch little e and we chose the day after Valentines. I felt like an old lady planning to go out the day after (to a matinee by the way) so that we could avoid crowds. After the movie we went and got dinner together and then rushed to pick up Easton. Poor baby has been sick for about 3 days now. He is still so happy all day, but it has been a few long nights with him waking up really congested. Hopefully he will feel like himself soon.

Well, off to shower and get to bed. ♥

5 months!

Happy 5 months my baby boy ♥ As you get older, it is definitely bittersweet. I want you to be a baby forever, but as you get older and do more and more it is so exciting to watch. You sleep through the night all the time now :) Sometimes you like to wake up to start your day about 5:30 but you are usually around 6:00. You are still on your same schedule as far as 6,9,12,3,6,9. Your last bottle of the night has your cereal in it. We just fed you carrots tonight at your 6:00 feeding to start heading towards that direction and you did pretty good. We tried a few weeks ago and you hated everything about it, so I figured we would hold off a little longer.
You are 16.5 pounds, 27'', and in size 2 diapers wearing mainly 9 month clothes. You finally reach the floor in your jumparoo and you LOVE it! I just sit and watch you jump like crazy with a big smile on your face. :) You are starting to gargle your slobber lately, not sure why but it is super cute just like everything you do! You always get compliments on your smile and your lashes.

You are rolling over from your back to your front when you go for toys and you sat in the buggy at the grocery store sitting up like a big boy for the first time. You loved looking around at everything. You are an awesome baby! The only cranky time we have is when you fight your naps. Your eyes will be rolling you are so tired but you straighten your body out and try so hard to stay awake. You have times where you do that and then your next nap you will just pass out on your own without us realizing it. hmmm

I love you so much sweet boy and I thank God everyday for allowing me to be your mother.

Almost there

Two more days of work this week. I think I can...I think I can :) I am so excited for next weekend, I will get 3 days off with Drake before his crazy Spring work starts. I still can't believe it is February and Spring is right around the corner. We never really had a winter here this has been about 70 degrees lately.

I just wanted to hop on real quick and post a picture of my handsome guy hanging out in his bumbo ♥ Love those lashes! I am headed to get a shower after getting sweaty at spin, then it's time to relax and watch Idol with my guys! Happy Hump Day!

Please pray for my mom and her health. She has had several medical issues over the years and found out today that she is adding another issue to the list with degenerative eye disease. She has been seeing flashes of light and went to get it checked out...basically the jelly-like substance in the Vitreous cavity in the interior of her eye is turning into liquid is the way I understood. My mom is the strongest person I know and you will NEVER hear her complain or put her problems on display to try and get sympathy from others. I just wish there was something I could do for her to take all of her health problems away. Thanks in advance for the prayers. ♥

Hey guys! Happy Saturday. Today was a great day :). This morning I went and got a mani/pedi and then came home and got ready for the day. We were out and about all afternoon and evening together. We started off at the park. We met Summer and Elle up there for a play date :) Easton was loving the swing. I am so excited that he is getting to where he is able to sit up enough to do some new and exciting things. Love this guy!

He was very interested in Elle the whole time we were there.

We even went down the slide a couple times. ♥

Once we left the park we went and ate dinner at Five Guys. Yum. Then we went and did some shopping. Got a couple warm weather shirts for everyone. Now we are back home and about to watch a movie, so I am outta here! Have a good weekend!!
