fun in the sink

Here's some pictures of Miles and his bath time tonight. I've been putting him in the kitchen sink because it's easy and not such a huge production. As you can see from the picture, I gave him his first mohawk. He is getting quite a bit of hair in the back so it's fun to spike it up!

Our first harvest

Here's a pic of MIles and our first harvest, a huge zucchini that Corey grew in our flower beds! Hopefully this time next year we will have a huge vegetable garden!


Hello All, can't believe another week has gone by and that it is already Monday. We had a really fun weekend hanging out with friends and getting to know people better! I had a ladies night on Friday night which was great and on Saturday we had a birthday shindig to go to. It was a lot of fun, Miles did great, just crawling around, and hanging out with the other kids. He loves anything social. Anyways, I am excited because this week I am going to Greensboro to spend some time with family. My mom is coming back from her road trip through New England. She is picking Miles and I up and we are going to hang out in Greensboro. I am looking forward to getting out of town. Haven't really gone anywhere in a while because of gas prices. So it will be good to get away from the normal routine for a bit. I still have to pack so I can't sit much longer. Just wanted to post some pics of Corey and Miles, Miles absolutely loves his daddy! Every time he comes home he starts crawling and snorting with excitement straight for his knees! It's so cute. They are going to be best buds! Hope everyone has a good week.

7 mo.

I can't believe that Miles is 7 mo. He is doing so much and has really come into his own! He is now crawling, pulling up on just about anything, saying da da and lots of other funny words/sounds and is really exploring this world. He loves to be outside most of all. If he is ever unhappy I just take a blanket outside in the yard and it entertains him for hours. The only problem is he loves to eat dirt and grass. He's starting early!!

This past weekend was a lot of fun. My mom and brother were here taking a pit stop before they ventured off on there road trip through New England. Also, Justin and Nicole our good friends from Durham were here and they brought some of their good friends, now our new friends Dave and Jena. We had a house full, but it was so much fun. We tried to pack as much in as possible. We took them to several of our favorite spots, went to the farmers market, made lunch and homemade icecream and got to go see Baby Mama. It was a lot of fun. Here are some of my favorite pics from our weekend with family and friends!

Thursday pool party

Yesterday we got together with some of our friends for a summer pool party. It was a little cold, so Miles was a little apprehensive about getting in the water, oh well, it was an excuse for him to wear his stylin bathing suit combo!

can't sleep

So it's almost 11:30 and I just can't fall asleep. Corey and I were laying in bed both talking about how stinking hot we are, so Corey just ran out to try and find some ac window units. Pretty crazy. I told him to pick up some ice cream while he's out! Miles has been asleep since 9, and I've been trying to fall asleep, but I just can't. I don't know what it is, maybe the cookies I ate at small group. Oh well, this makes for an interesting night. So what's been on my mind lately.. hmm...mostly just thinking a lot about when Miles was born and what a special time that was. I replay it in my mind all the time. I wish so much I could go back and do it all over again. Now that I've had MIles it seems I have such a passion for birth, and all I can think about is what it will be like next time. I'm really excited to have more children (God willing)! As Miles gets older it's really amazing to see how he is growing and changing so much. Each month he gets a little more confident and a little more mobile. It's just amazing to think that this time 7 mo. ago he was still in my stomach moving around, just waiting to make his debut (7 days late of course)! I just can't get over all that he can do now, he is crawling around, pulling up on furniture and standing up in his crib. He's so mobile, it's a little scary. I guess I just wish they didn't grow so fast. Last night he was sitting outside in the yard in his stroller. I was just watching him, he was so content to watch his daddy water the lawn. He saw a butterfly up in the sky and he watched it as it got higher and higher up in the sky. That was such a special moment for me as his mom, to just watch him get excited and follow the butterfly through the sky. It's the simple things like that make me know that Jesus is real and that he brings such joy to our lives! Anyways, I know this is a random post, but just wanted to let you in on what's been going through my mind lately. Miles you are such a joy and I love being your Momma!! Leaving you with a picture of Miles when he was about 3 days old. Such a sweet baby boy...

some good pics

Well, it's been a while since I've posted anything. I get into these bloging moods where I want to post so much and then I get burnt out and don't feel it for a while. Life is good. It's summer in Asheville and by summer I mean hot! It's not Texas hot but compared to Tahoe, it's pretty darn hot! We don't have ac either so that has been a little interesting. We are thinking about getting some window units for the bedrooms so that we can sleep comfortably. We had a fun weekend which started off with a long walk through downtown on Friday night, followed by lunch with the Collies on Saturday and then hanging out around the house Saturday night. On Sunday I went grocery shopping and stocked up on some ingredients for our weekly menu! I am excited about cooking this week. We are going to have some fun dishes. Well, here are some really cute pics from last weekend. This is Mile's newest friend Quinn. She is the sweetest little girl. This picture was taken at some of our friends yard sale last weekend. We've really gotten into yard selling. It's our Saturday morning fun!
