photo of the day

I didn't have much to blog on today, and i have been somewhat of a slacker in the blogging department lately (such a busy time of year!) so i decided to show one of my new favorite photos of my nephew C and Booderbean!

I have titled this photo "Ready, Set, GO!"

i can tell they just wish they could jump in!

Baby K 2.0

This is the name my brother has given to our second baby...Baby K 2.0! classic! When little booderbean was in my tummy and we didn't know if he was a he or a she, everyone referred to him as "Baby K", so it just makes sense i suppose.

I have been purposely not posting this week b/c i just loved the though of our little announcement being on the front page of my blog...but it is time. And i thought what better way to go on than to have a little preggo girl update huh!

you can stop reading now if you are not into this sort of thing....but i have a feeling a lot of my posts over the next 8 months will be about this wonderful little being!

Oooooooooh the world is a great place right now!! as I type I am eating a lunch that actually sounded good, smelled good, and is settling quite nicely with my finicky tummy! AND thanks to my brother I have found my new little piece of Heaven: Smoothie King!!!!!!!!!!

About 10 AM I was starving…and the drawer full of snacks and fridge full of other peoples snacks (yes I have been given the go ahead to eat whatever I can keep down from the office mates) did not sound good at all. I mean I am getting very nauseous at this point, and nothing is sounding good.
Co-worker suggests soup from McAlister’s…bingo!
We head that way at lunch time and I got the best little cup of country potato soup to go I have honestly ever had! So excited to find something that sounds good!

I have heard and read on many websites that a good fruit smoothie is the way to go on a preggo tummy that can’t seem to keep anything down, not even water. So after I grabbed my soup I text the brother for a good place to get a smoothie and of course he says Smoothie King—bingo!! I head in and of course have no idea from their large menu what even sounds good. the guy asks what I want and I tell him I have no idea, so he is EVER so helpful and makes suggestions….my stomach is turning as he is mentioning all the food. I tell him nicely that I am pregnant and can’t seem to even get water into my tummy but I know that I need to get some nutrients in me quick. it was amazing! That place kicked it into high gear and had all kinds of great suggestions for me (they really know their stuff there!) and then let me sample all of them that they mixed up before I had to settle on one. it was so great. so I picked one out and I am now in Heaven!

THIS is my new favorite place…pretty sure I’ll be a regular there!

cutie cousins

On the Bridges side of the family there are 4 grandchildren, and they are all BOYS! Getting these boys together is always so much fun, so hectic, so loud, and so full of smiles-hugs-kisses-and sticky hands! I love these boys to death! It is so amazing to me, and so blessing, that you can see the love they have for each other at such young ages! The oldest is C- he'll be 5 next month, then there's my Booderbean-just turned 2.5, then there is J-he's 21 months, and lastly is little G-he's 3 months.
We took some fun photos last weekend when we got the boys together....too bad little G was nursing the whole time, i got no photos of him.
This is little J and Booderbean--such cheesy funny boys!

C looks like he's deep in thought in his favorite spot in the tree.
This weekend we'll all be together again for Easter at Mimi & Papa's and you can bet I will capture some more cousin cuteness!

my pretty pretty niece

This past weekend we got the chance to see our niece all dolled up and looking way too beautiful for her first prom! She went with her boyfriend to his prom in another town. There they had a promenade so we were able to see all the girls parade around in their fabulous dresses. It was so much fun!
Miss Brittney was beaming, you could tell she was so happy! I haven't talked to her since that night to hear all the details of her first prom, but i am certain she had a blast and stole the dance floor!

Of course when Booderbean saw his cousin Britt, he had to be up in her arms!

two. point. five.

For some reason 2 1/2 has been a hard number for me to grasp with Booderbean...for the past few months and weeks I've been saying he's "almost 2 1/2" and now that TODAY he is officially 2 1/2 it seems so sad. Not like this is some major milestone, or some grown up age...but 2 1/2 just seems so big boy for me!

Are you sure you don't want to go back to this size again???

I love you, and i miss you

(this is his new favorite line to say before bedtime to us!!!)
