Times like these

It seems lately that we all have just wanted to put our heads in the coffee mug. Sleep has been a scarce thing for us the past few days. I feel as if we are on the up and up though. We are still recovering from that horrendous fever BellaRose had the other day. Worth took her to the doctor yesterday morning just make sure everything was okay, and it was (hey we are first time parents over here). Doc just said she is probably still sore from the fever and that is why she is not sleeping, also I just know she is getting some molars, she has not stopped grinding on her hands.
Every morning we have "family fun time", Worth goes and gets Sweet Girl and makes coffee. We have coffee in bed while we all hang out. This is what BellaRose does EVERY TIME she sees the coffee mug. I guess this is what she thinks we do, which is almost pretty accurate. She sits there and sloppers all over the mug breathing heavy. It is a sight to behold!



Little Bean got her big girl car seat the other day, a gift from Big Poppa and T-love for her birthday. Although she is far from being a big girl as she only weighs 16 lbs "something" ounces (Worth went to the doc not me, so that is the weight you will get). I could not believe she has only gained a few ounces in the past couple of months. I am not sure if you have seen this baby eat, but she can chow. She is just getting taller and and taller, but gaining no weight (I might just be a little jealous). So we got the big girl car seat b/c she is just way too tall for the baby one now. Oh this just makes a mother want to cry!
We went to the lake at camp yesterday to take the dogs and Worth for a swim, and let Rainy jump off the diving board. I just had to put BellaRose in her bathing suit and cover up even though there was no way she was getting in that cold water. Come on, how cute is my little baby!

We had horrible wind the other day. It was almost apocalyptic. I was terrified and Worth who would probably be a hurricane chaser thought the wind was "a bit much". We woke up the next morning and fared pretty well compared to most people around. Enormous trees were down all over Black Mountain. Hundred year old trees just gave up the fight. I often wonder about that, why a tree just comes down one day after battling so many storms. I guess they just got tired, sometimes I think I understand.


Got to go on a bike ride yesterday. BellaRose was screaming not wanting to go to sleep as it has been the past couple of days and I just had to get out! Worth suggested I ride my bike, and that I did. It has been awhile, and I only rode to the bank, but it was still glorious. I hope to get out on the ole cruiser a little bit more now. Look how beautiful she is, cleans right up.

I love your family fun time- I think that's such a great idea! I only WISH someone brought me coffee every morning- that's awesome- so nice of Worth and BR. I cannot believe she's already in a big girl carseat- so cute! We have Britax just the bigger one for the boys because of their height. Great carseat!

Walker James Kirkland said...

I'm jealous of your bike ride! I'd get rundown around here! :) And congrats to BR on the new carseat!

Hi Sunday~ I can't believe our little ones are turning one next week!! Amazing how fast this last year went--wow! I'm so glad to see another "tall" and "not-gaining" little one. Jaden is the same exact way...growing, but not gaining weight I was beginning to wonder if he was the only one....can't wait to see how tall they will be one day!! Oh, and don't they just love forward facing in the carseat!!!!
Can't believe that wind, our aunts/grandma got hit real hard in Delaware too..Glad all was okay.
Hey, I have a picture I have to send you....do you mind sending me your email address. I totally thought of you when I saw this!! :)
take care! ~Heather

#1 I want to hang out on your deck- it's perfect...well before the wind, but knowing you it is already back in shape! #2 Love the bike and the toto basket on the front :-) #3 BR is too cute in her swimsuit coverup.... I wish I looked that cute in one and last but not least #4 reading about "fun time" in the bed makes me excited for baby William to get here.....

Will has strange love for our coffee in the morning too, he says coff coff coff over and over. they are so funny aren't they?
Oh the cruiser, can't wait to see that out again on the streets of BM. Love the beach cover up, I want one just like it.

I can't believe I hadn't seen this post yet. (shhh don't tell blogs I've been cheating on them with facebook) I think that picture with the coffee mug is awesome, you should give that mugshot to courtney

sunday said...

Oh my goodness Becky of course! I did not even think about that!

Sunday,
I was so disappointed that Seth and Annabelle got to come to your house for a cookout without me! I wanted to, but I was REALLY tired. Maybe next time.
Seth is dying to plan a trip to visit Annie and Adam in Boston. Maybe we should all go together sometime.....

And, I like your bike too.

And, I think the best thing about a baby turning one is the transition to front-facing int he car. They are so much happier.
