In light of Toad Suck Daze this weekend, Bub slept in his toad pj's last night.

After breakfast this morning, he changed into his toad outfit that Gammy brought back from Alabama.

We're looking forward to experiencing toad suck this year with our little man. I cannot wait to taste all of the great (not so good for you) food that it has to offer!

On another note, how stunning is PRINCESS Katherine? I thought she looked simply beautiful. As did Pippa.

Have a lovely weekend! I'm off to fold some cloths and blow dry my hair before B wakes up from a nap. :)

3 Months

*3 months*

This has been such a fun month – Bub’s little personality is really starting to shine. He is content, observant and independent (most of the time). He doesn’t mind putting himself to sleep or playing by himself. He is a little charmer. The child knows how to flirt with momma and the other ladies in his life. Like I’ve said from the day he started moving in my tummy…this little boy is AND will be ACTIVE. He loves to be in motion, and now that he is figuring out body parts he is filled with excitement as he moves around. He is going to keep me on my toes; that’s for sure.

His hands find his mouth often and he blows raspberries all the time.

He is really starting to explore. There is nothing better than watching him discover new things. I love watching him figure out what his hands can do, and soon his feet. Currently his hands are more relaxed (instead of having closed fists) and he’s been hitting the objects. Just recently he actually grabbed and pulled on an object he had been staring at – made momma so proud of him.

We have conversations that last longer, now. Of course he “oohs and aahs.” I enjoy every second of it. The giggling is the BEST.

We start our night-night routine at 6:30; bath, feeding, bed. B is usually asleep by 7:30p.m. and wakes up at 6:00 – 7:00 a.m.

Bubs naps are inconsistent. One day he’ll take a 2 hour morning nap and 1 hour afternoon nap. The next day he may only take a few 30 min. naps. And the next he’ll take one morning nap for an hour and one afternoon nap for an hour.

He holds his head steady and upright for a short time. We’re working on mastering this skill.

He is SO fascinated by his feet!

As I was typing this post I couldn't believe in the world is my little love bug already 3 months. It sounds so cliche, but goodness where does the time go?!

Happy 3 months, bub!

SomeBUNNY Loves Me

L.O.V.E that bunny booty!

Bub didn't get his picture taken with the Easter bunny this year. We will try that next year. Hopefully he won't be scared of the bunny like his mom was. I feared that bunny! I'll fail to mention just how long that lasted. It was so bad that my mom and dad had to put our Easter baskets on the front porch so that "he"... "it"... whatever wouldn't come inside our house. I know. I'm a wuss.

Hope you have a blessed Easter weekend!

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead."

Splish Splash

Brody LOVES his baths!

Look at those rolls! LOVE it

And that tummy

I got him in action. As soon as I lay him down after bath time to put cloths on he goes nuts; moving his arms and legs like he's in a race or something. He has the most serious face, too.

Opps! How did this one slip in??? I sure hope its true!

We're gearing up for another fun weekend. Hope you are too.
