We Carved a Pumpkin!

Blakely and her Nana had fun carving a pumpkin together!!

Blakely and Doodlebops

Blakely is staying with Grammy and Papaw this weekend. They took her to see the Doodlebops. Which is one of her favorite shows. They said she had such a fun time and when the show was over tried to run back in yelling "doodlebops, doodlebops." Grammy said that she was in total awe of the experience. When we talked to her on the phone all she keep saying is I saw the Doodlebops. Glad you had such a fun time Blakely!!!

Lilly is 2 weeks old

We took Lilly to her two week check up yesterday. She weighs 7 lbs 15 ozs. Dr. Cheshier was shocked she had already gained so much weight. She is nursing really well.
Lilly is a great baby, but I'm hoping she will hold out longer at night to eat. She still is waking up about every 2 1/2 to 3 hours at night. Lilly is also having some nasal congestion issues. We are having to use a humidifier and nasal syringe to help her breath better. Hopefully that will clear up soon. Other than that she is a healthy beautiful baby. We are truly blessed.

Blakely LOVES to dance and wear her tutu. She has had lots of fun with her grandparents the past two weeks. If you notice Blakely is starting to wear big girl panties. Hopefully it won't be long and we will be fully potty trained. Yeah!!!!

Glad to be Home

Things have gone great since we have been at home. Everyone seems to have adjusted really well. Blakely loves being a big sis. She already has been helping us with Lilly-making sure she has her blankee and pacie.
Lilly is great! She has really been perfect so far!
We are so blessed!!!
The picture of her looking at the camera is before bath the one of her screaming is after bath. Needless to say she didn't like the bath very much.
When we put Lilly in the bouncy seat Blakely pulled her chair up beside her to make sure Lilly was OK-how sweet!!

More pictures from the hospital

Here are some more pics from the hospital.(one before she was born-I was ready to have our little girl)
Blakely was able to push the button for the song that is played throughout the hospital when a baby is born. She was so proud. Thanks to all who came to visit and for the calls!
We love our little Lilly!!!

Wow! as Blakely would say

Well tomorrow is the big day! We are anxiously waiting for Lilly's arrival. We have been busy getting the house in order and making sure we have everything we need. Blakely is trying to get use to all the baby stuff in the house-and she makes sure she tells us "this is mine."
We would like to ask everyone to say a prayer for tomorrow. Hopefully the surgery will be around 8:30 or 9:00. Hopefully by Monday the blog will be updated with how tomorrow goes. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Busy Weekend

You had a fun filled weekend. On Saturday morning we went to Olivia Grace's birthday party, then went to your daddy's work picnic and then Grammy, Papaw, Uncle Charlie and Aunt Glenda came to visit. Olivia Grace had a great party and you truly enjoyed yourself. Leslie it was a wonderful party and the castle was amazing!!!
Your dad's work picnic was huge. There were about 15,000 people there. You jumped, climbed and slid in the blowup toys, played games, ate a ton of cotton candy, played on the swing set and truly enjoyed yourself. (I left my camera in the car)
Then Saturday night Grammy and Papaw were coming back from there two week vacation and came by to visit. You loved seeing them. So on Sunday we had a lazy afternoon and a good long nap.

AR/OK State Fair and circus

You had such a fun time at the fair and circus with the Nutts. You truly loved riding all the rides and keep wanting to ride more. You keep saying “more rides, more rides”
You and Bella were so funny-in the car ride it would go fast around the corners and you and Bella would scream with excitement. It was adorable. After the rides and yummy food we went to the circus. You loved it and couldn’t take you eyes off what was going on. We also went to see a few of the animals and you enjoyed that as well. I guess this will start an annual tradition.
