Where has the time gone?

Presley, it is so hard to believe that you are almost one! You are 11 months old today!

Picture quality stinks, sorry! Still havent got my camera fixed yet & its killing me!!!

Here is what your doing these days!

*You weight 19lbs
*You can army crawl(but hate it), you would rather scoot on your butt-quite humerous
*You wear size 9-12 months clothes
*You have the smallest feet-still in a 2
*You just got your first pair of Converse to wear at your party
*You have two teeth on bottom
*You do not like Sippy cups but Mommy is working hard on it
*You still love Spongebob
*You love to snuggle
*You have the cutest straight across smile-Adorable
*You can say: Moma, Dada, MiMi, Buba, Babi, and the newest...Duck! She loves rubber duckies!

I am sure there is more but you are wanting some attention from Moma, so I gotta go. Only a few weeks until your big party!!!!

Back to School

I cant believe it but, its already time for kids to go back to school. I know Georgia kids go back early but geez I swear it gets earlier and earlier every year. This year they go back on Aug 6!!!! That is a Friday! How crazy? Anyways! I have been school shopping and one thing I am tired of is those crazy character back packs. My boys like picking out their favorite character, but they are not well made and we end up having to get a new backpack mid-year. So this year I decided I wasn't giving them a choice and decided to go for the L.L.Bean Junior back pack. They didnt pitch a fit either, I let them pick their color. Parkers is red, Peytons is blue :)
It has a lifetime warranty. As rough as boys are the things I figured it was best. Plus right now they are 20% off!!! And I used a promotional code and got FREE shipping!!!! Of course, I had them monogrammed for $6 more. Those character bags are $20 & these were only $24.36-total! and they are monogrammed and have a warranty!!! Cant beat it!!!! I cant wait to get them!

Update and Following

Update on Peyton:
Yesterday when I got home he was really in a lot of pain. His throat was really hurting and he could hardly talk. It took him a long time to go to sleep and once he fell asleep he was up again at 5 =( He has a regular doctor visit today with his peds, so I will have her take a look at his throat to make sure all is ok. Thanks for thinking about him.

And now its time for Tuesday Following!

Tubes, Again!

In April, our middle child, Parker had tubes for the second time only that time he had to have his adenoids out as well. Well today was our oldest turn, Peyton. He had to have tubes and his adenoids out. The procedure went great, the only problem was when the doctor was taking the adenoids out, he knicked one of Peytons tonsils, OuCh! When Peyton came out he was extrememly tired, more than Parker ever was and of course his throat was hurting. I had to go back to work(only got to go to recovery with him) and he went home with Daddy to rest. I hate that I didnt get to be there the whole time but he understands why I cant be, and he was happy to see me while I was there...and of course he loved the donkey I brought him. Please keep him in your thoughts today. Bless his heart, this has been a rough year for him. First the hospital stay and major knee surgery to now this.

**I am sorry I havent been posting pictures lately, my camera has to be sent off to be fixed and I have been able to take it in yet. As soon as I get it fixed I will post birthday pics and the 4th of July. (I know it will be late but I know you all want to see them...there adorable!)

The Vintage Pearl Giveaway!!!

Can I just say that I L.O.V.E this jewelry. I always look at Etsy for handstamped jewelry and other keepsakes and let me just say, The Vintage Pearl is by far, the B.E.S.T. They create unique hand stamped jewelry that is simple, sentimental, and meaningful. Every piece they make is entirely sterling silver, unless otherwise noted in the description. Every piece is handcrafted - charms are cut, filed, hammered, hand stamped, antiqued, polished and brushed with care in their studio. The Vintage Pearl only uses the finest materials in their jewelry! Each letter is individually hand stamped, no 2 pieces will come out the same--making every piece its own creation!

I reviewed the Mother of Pearl. Its hard to describe the feeling I got when I received this necklace! It is one that I will always cherish and will pass down to my children. I had my three childrens name stamped on it. The edges of the charm are slightly hammered and the charm is lightly cupped. The charm is then brushed and polished.

Look at the other great pieces that they have. Simply beautiful!
They even have amazing things for the man in your life!!!

The Vintage Pearl is offering one of my readers a $25 gift certificate to use in their shop for whatever you would like!!!
