So like all mothers I was so excited to be having another baby last year - a girl.  I shopped A LOT for this girl because I wasn't sure how much stuff I'd get for her since we had 3 showers when we were expecting Teague.  The Target clearance section became a favorite and if I remember correctly I'd make all kinds of excuses to go to Target just to check out the clothes (I may or may not still make excuses to go to Target - don't tell Drew).  This was one of the outfits I fell in love with and may have paid full price for it because I loved it so much.  BUT after my girl was born and started growing I got nervous, REALLY nervous that some of her adorable outfits wouldn't fit her.  But guess what 2 weeks ago our girl got to wear one of the outfits and I was so excited I squealed with delight! (Which by the way I barely ever do - squeal that is.)

Now I need to get ready because we're off to the beach this morning with Auntie Jennie, "Bicah", Aunt Lissa, and Alli.

little loves

Mother's day ended up being a great day.  When Drew came home from church I made surf & turf Mexican soft shell tacos.  It was sooooo good!  I also wanted to mention that Drew and I caught Teague praying.  He had his hands folded, his head bowed and his eyes closed. Maybe he was praying that his hernia wouldn't come back?!?! It was so cute I couldn't stop watching therefore no picture was taken.  Sorry!  Maybe next time.  Then we took this cute photo of our sissis eating outside on the deck with us.  BTW, it was so nice we ate lunch and dinner outside, but it was so stinking bright we realized that we need an umbrella soon!  Happy Monday!

happy mother's day

Let's begin with last night...

We had our Sunday School class over last night for burgers, dogs and a good time.  Fast forward to around 8pm.  Teague comes inside with cold, wet feet and hands - and he's fussy.  My first thought - he's cold, take off wet clothes, wrap him in a cold blanket.  Still fussy.  He's reminding me of times before where he struggled to poop.  My next thought - check his diaper, nothing, let's try the potty.  We sit for five minutes, now he's crying a little harder then I notice his groin is swollen.  I totally knew even though I've never seen it before - it's a hernia.  So I consult with a few other moms and show them.  They all say go to the ER just in case it's serious.  SO off we go leaving Finn with Jamie T. (which by the way she's so awesome for putting my little lady to bed AND cleaning up the house for me - Jamie, I owe you).

I hate the ER because sometimes they take f.o.r.e.v.e.r.  Not this time!  We were in and 20 minutes later the doctor was in - for the record, that's faster than my pediatrician (unless we're the 1st appointment).  The first Doc said we'll do an x-ray and see if Dr. W wants to do surgery.  (I think to myself deep breath mama.  I knew these moments were inevitable, but I wasn't prepared for how I would feel).  Somewhere between waiting for Dr. W and boredom I ran home to grab books and toothbrushes just in case we had to stay the night.  When I got back Teague was climbing all over Drew and the hospital bed.  So I checked it again and it had gone way down.  The doctor ended up sending us home with some instructions and a happy kid! Drama over. Thank you everyone who said prayers for us last night.

Today we're home because I gave Teague a little stool softener and I didn't want someone else to have to take care of his mess is he had one.

Also, Drew asked me what I wanted for my mother's day breakfast and I said sleep!

Happy Mother's Day all you mama's out there!

afternoon away

Our dear sweet friends Jen and Lainey came over yesterday so I could run errands in the afternoon.  Can I just tell you that it's so nice not to have to haul the kids everywhere with me?  I actually made it to 4 stores for groceries to get some good deals in less than 2 hours!  Lord knows if I had taken the kiddos with me I could have easily added an additional 40 minutes being out and about and there is no way I could have stopped at 4 places!  So thanks Nolte ladies for loving on my babies for the afternoon so I could get some much needed shopping done  I owe you!

Last week...

Checkin' out her cute self in her Easter outfit.

Every Tuesday morning we get together with some friends.  That's Shelby and Ethan with Teague.

Can you guess what day that is?  Yep, that's from last Friday and yep, that's my neighbor's house. Are we really supposed to pay homage to Great Britain when there's a royal wedding? Dude we live in the US!

Finn got some Milano cookies from Oma in her Easter basket.  Can you tell she loves it?  I know I do - love the cookies, this face, and the cookie on this face.

So I've been hesitant to put both of the kids in the tub at the same time because Teague likes to pee in it almost as soon as he gets in.  So, we've been making him go on the potty before.  He gets chocolate for going so we both win.  Which means he can get in the tub with Finn and my job gets a little easier.

See that book in Teague's lap?  Yep, that's an "Elmo" book.  Teague has gone from loving Elmo to becoming obsessed with Elmo.  He'll wake up in the middle of the night and scream for Elmo because he can't find his books in his bed.  That's because when he falls asleep we take them and put them up ~ every night.  Or we'll be downstairs and he'll start saying "Elmo" pointing to his videos.  When I say "no", he persists with this pitiful plea almost on the verge of sobs and high-pitched squeals "Elmo".  Then he gets louder and either I stand firm or I cave.  I rarely cave, but I'll admit that every once in a while I do. 

Oh that face!
