We are back!!

Man it has been 8 months since our last post. "Bro" sure has grown and has learned so much since my last post. He will be 20 months in a few days and that is so hard to believe. Where does the time go. He absolutely loves it outside! A few months back I was outside working in the flower bed while Trent was inside cooking dinner and "watching" Bro. I came in after about an hour and the door to the garage was open. I yelled at Trent and asked him why the door was open and he didn't know. I then tried to find Bro by yelling for him and there was no Bro! I started to feel the panic set in. I stepped out into the garage and started yelling his name and still no answer. I then walked out the garage doors and started to scan the yard and then I saw him!!! He was standing at the end of the driveway at the road! I said his full name in a very stern manner and he replies with a wave and "bye bye"!! I felt like an idiot. The neighbors had been driving by the whole time and I had no idea how long he had been standing at the road. I am lucky they didn't call CPS on me. Needless to say the garage door now is dead bolted when we come in! I will post a few new pictures of our little escape artist later along with our March of Dimes Walk! More to come :-)

Oh my I had no idea that it has been this long. It has been crazy around our house the last few months. I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who prayed for me and my family last month. I can't express how grateful that I am to have such wonderful friends!!

We have been busy planning a birthday party for my soon to be 1 year old!! I can't believe how fast his first year has gone by. In just a few short days he will be eating cake and ice cream. We have had a lot of birthdays this September and I have scolded anyone who has tried to give him a bite of birthday cake!! LOL I just want Brodie to have his first taste of cake at his own party. My little man isn't walking yet, but we are getting pretty close to taking those first steps. He can run crawl (that's what we call it ) especially if he hears the fridge door open. He make a mad dash to it. He now has three teeth all the way in and three more peaking through. Brodie and the dog are becoming better friends Brodie even crawled under the bed with her and then SCREAMED until mommy came and rescued him. He must really love his daddy because that is all the little guy will say, dada dada dada. I try my hardest to get a mama in there and he just looks up, smiles, and then dada!! lol. We made a trip to Dr. R. and Brodie has caught up with his age group on weight and length, he may not be in in the 80% range, but we are above 50%!!!

I hope to have some new pictures up soon!!

Well we didn't take home the title on Saturday from the baby contest at the fair, but there is no doubt that he is definitely the cutest baby boy on the block! We had a good time, but it was just SO hot. I kinda feel like a bad mom like one of those crazy pageant parents. EEK I don't think this will be a trend of ours. Trent said "this is the one and only one of these we will be participating in" he thought it was dreadful! I did get to meet a fellow blogger that recognized us so that was nice. Brodie and i have been trying to keep busy lately with his daddy working lots of extra time with all this nonsense going on around town. We have missed him being around. Daycare is closed next week so we have lots of projects planned around home. This could get interesting :-) Sorry no pictures I'm at work and left my camera at home today! I will update on those later.

We go to Riley on Tuesday to have a specialist look at Brodie's arm to see if his birthmark needs to be removed. It is called a nevi and they usually become cancerous. You can kinda see it in this picture on his shoulder. Dr. Ruff said that there was a few different options on how to take it off. One is putting a balloon under the skin to stretch it the they will remove it and close the skin back, and the other would be to do a skin graft. Please say a prayer for us to be able to have the best option for Brodie done.

We don't have any big plans for this weekend. I think that the Wagler's will be joining us at my MIL for the fireworks show at the park. She lives a few blocks away so it is a prime spot. Happy Independence Day to Everyone!!

my how time flys

We have has such a busy month! I can't believe how much time has passed since my last post. My handsome little man will be 8 months pretty soon and I will be planning a MASSIVE birthday party for him before long.

We have been to Alabama and Florida this month. We had three graduations in Alabama then a vaca to Destin, Florida. Brodie did pretty well for all that traveling. I am so glad that we came back when we did. He has been teething sooo badly since we got home. He has had some major fits where he just screams and screams and screams. It doesn't matter what you do for him it isn't going to help oh and did i mention that he screams!!

Trent and I are very excited that our yard is going to be getting fixed. We have major water issues when it rains. It looks like a river that flows into a pond in our yard. It is awful! Gress's are going to be able to fix it pretty reasonably. We will also be starting on some landscaping around the front of the house. If anyone has any good websites that i could visit and get ideas let me know.

We have relay for life coming up next weekend. I am very excited, but always dread how i feel by 3pm on Saturday. Trent will be keeping Brodie while I am gone, but I am sure that they will find their way to the park somehow. We also have a Hembree Wedding coming up next weekend. (sheena get your dancing shoes on!! lol) I will have lots of pictures soon to follow. Hope you all have a great weekend!

How could I forget!!

About Everything we have been up to!!! We recently celebrated my nephew Noah's 6th birthday at Mr. Gattis! He had all of his little friends there and they had a blast :)
For Brodie's Easter party at school I tried to make cake pops. I do not recommend. I was very disappointed in them :(

That night Brodie fell asleep while eating. This was a first and a hoot!!

Trent would kill me so don't tell him I posted this picture of him!! ( don't mind my dirty kitchen)

This is a banner from the March for Babies. Brodie's name was up on top :)

Here are some of our teammates Brandon and Kristi. Trent's brother and his wife.
