Leland got an even bigger big boy bed this weekend.  He had a full size (his crib converted into it), but it was so short for some reason.  We took it down and put a queen size back into this room, after sprucing up the headboard!  My guest will be much happier now!

I'm leaving Leland's name on the wall until closer to September, but I will be changing it to a big monogram of the boys initials (LMR) since they will be sharing this room.  We have a beautiful, white all wood cradle that was given to us, so we will be setting it up on the other wall of this room.

Memorial Day Weekend 2012

We had a very laid back Memorial Day weekend.  Ashley, Maw, and PaPaw came down Saturday, so Jason joined us for lunch at Dreamland BBQ.  After eating yummy BBQ, I took them all to Edgar's (the cake store as Leland calls it) to get a slice of cake.  Other than it being extrememly hot outside, we all had a great afternoon!
On Sunday, Ashley and I treated ourselves to lunch at Chuy's.  Leland is re-wearing his patriotic outfit from last year, so I asked him to stand by the water fountain for a picture.  He smiled as pretty as he could, as you can see in the above picture.  Our lunch was fantastic as usual!
When we got back, we decided to get in the big baby pool out back.  It's not a swimming pool by any means, but it is the perfect size for 2 beach chairs in the water and room for a 2 year old to play!
Doing what he does best....relaxing!

Fun in the sun at the lake....

 Adam came down to spend the weekend with us.  We had a very relaxing weekend just sitting on the dock.  These 2 were going to be slick and go down this green waterslide.  I dropped them off in the boat and they climbed all the way up the ladder to find a gate and a pad lock on the slide!  The owners were smart!
 We went on down to a friends slide and the guys got to act like kids!

Georgia Safari

 We went to the safari park in Pine Mountain, GA a few weeks ago.  It was a lot of fun!
 Jason was terrified for about 3/4 the way through the park.  Leland and I got a lot of good laughs at him.  Leland giggled and giggled the whole way through!
 We rented a van and had buckets of food.  In the park, there were cows, bulls, zebras, giraffes, elk, ducks, pigs, horses, rhinos, lions, camels, and more.

 The zebras were by far my favorite!  I love this picture and am framing it to put in my office.  It is definitely a picture that makes me smile, even on the worst day!

23 Week Photo Shoot!

 My good friend Lindsey came into town last week and was sweet enough to meet us out at Aldridge Gardens for a photo shoot!  I was 23 weeks pregnant with baby Laken.  I have just started popping out with an actual belly that is noticeable in the past week.  I literally woke up with a belly one day last week!  Now I am definitely starting to notice things moving up into my ribs and am getting uncomfortable at night while sleeping. 

I went back to the doctor on the 15th of May (6 months pregnant) and everything looked good!  At that appointment, I still had not gained any weight, but Laken is measuring perfect.  I am almost positive that I have gained weight in the past 2 weeks!!  You know that I'm pregnant, but don't feel like it and then all the sudden you wake up feeling fat....that's where I'm at!!  Leland and I have been walking in the mornings and I am trying my best to watch what I eat and eat more fruits and veggies.  Hopefully I will be just as lucky with this pregnancy not to gain much weight.

 Leland did so good for these pictures!!

 I am in love with the above picture!

 I am pretty sure she snapped in the middle of him saying, "Oh Silly"!
My 23 week baby bump!
