I cannot believe my baby is 1 year old TODAY!! Wow....time flies!! I am taking a 1/2 day off work today and spending the rest of the day with Barrett. I can't wait! The big party is planned for Saturday and I have been running around like crazy trying to get the last minute things. Hopefully, everything will come together. I will post some pics of the party next week.

Barrett's First Step

video

On Tuesday Barrett took his first 2 steps by himself. I was so excited. I ran and got my camera and started to video. Jarrod was not with us so I wanted him to be able to see this exciting moment. I cannot believe our baby is about to start walking!! We love him so much and cannot wait for his next milestone!!

Tonight we will be going out with friends to bid farewell to Junior & Holley Kelley. They are moving back to Jackson, AL and we are going to miss them so much! I am sure we will now be making trips to Jackson to visit. They are such great friends!! We will miss you!!

On another note...we have some very exciting news. Jarrod and I will be meeting with our real estate agent next Thursday to discuss putting our house on the market and moving on to bigger and better things. We have been in our house for 3 years now and are quickly outgrowing it. Not to mention, I am tired of doing laundry in "The Dungeon". My washer and dryer are in a laundry room off of our garage with NO HEAT/AIR. We are sooooooo excited!!! Hopefully I can blog about our new house in a few months!! Please pray it doesn't take long to sell ours.

TMI Tuesday Night


Tuesday night I had the pleasure of going to dinner with my Mom and her friends. There are about 10 ladies that get together once a month to catch up and have a little relaxation time. Barrett and I tagged along with them this month. We ate at the new Dreamland Barbecue downtown in the Alley and then walked down by the Riverfront and around The Renaissance Hotel. While we were at the Renaissance, my mom decided she wanted to go and see the pool on the roof of the hotel. Once up there...I knew exactly why she wanted to go. She immediately took Barrett out of his stroller and put him in the water (outfit, diaper and all). There were little water fountains in the pool and he loved them! I did not have my camera with me, but did take a few shots with my camera phone. As for the title of my blog...let's just put it this way...yes children, your parents do have SEX and they do talk about it with their friends!! OMG...TMI!!!

This past weekend Barrett and I decided to venture out to one of Jarrod's Baseball games. It has been so hot lately that we don't do this very often. In fact, this is only the 3rd game we have been to this summer. Well, as I pulled into the parking lot at Patterson Field the bottom fell out. I decided to wait until the rain slacked off a little to get out of the car. When it FINALLY did, I jumped out, unloaded the stroller, unloaded the baby, grabbed the diaper bag and my purse all in time for it to start pouring rain again. At this point I just decided to go on in so that Jarrod would see that I actually attempted to make it to one of his games. After waiting around for about 45 minutes they called off the game. Honestly...I was very happy. It was so muggy outside. Barrett and I would have been miserable sitting through an entire baseball game. We did get a really cute picture while we were waiting for it to stop raining. Barrett loves to play with his Daddy's hats and this is exactly what he was doing in this picture. Just thought I would share it with you. Hope you are having a great week!

Beach Trip

Okay...we have had a lot going on lately and I am just now finding time to update my blog. We went to the beach the last week of June. This was Barrett's 2nd trip to the beach. While we were there we ran into Jarrod's Aunt and Uncle. What a surprise!! We ended up hanging out with them 2 nights in a row. It was so nice to get to spend time with them and catch up. Barrett loved, loved, loved the swimming pool, but was not a big fan of the sand. Thankfully, Jarrod stayed back at the house with Barrett and the girls went to the beach most of the time. Thanks Jarrod!!! Here are some pictures of our trip..







We also have a much anticipated birthday party coming up in August. I cannot believe I am about to have a 1 year old!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyways...I am busy planning his party. I ordered the invitations last week. They are soooo cute. It is all I can do to keep from posting some pictures that I took for his invitation, but I want it to be a surprise. I will post them after I send out the invitations.

Barrett's First Popsicle

Last week my mom and I decided it was time to give Barrett his first popsicle. Thinking that this was going to make some really cute pictures, I grabbed my camera and began to shoot. Well...the pictures turned out pretty funny. This is what I got...


The popsicle froze his hands and he didn't like that at all. We could not make him hold it by the stick. I guess we will wait until he is a little older and try again.
On another note, we just got back from the beach Sunday :( We had a great trip! I will post some pictures soon. Hope everyone has a great week. I am looking forward to the long 4th of July weekend!
