Vote For Tyler!

I took Madison and Tyler to have their picture made when Tyler was just six days old.  Madison was way more interested in all of Kelli's props than having her picture made.  We tried to bribe her with "Tic Tacs."  We were able to get a few great shots of the two kids and then it happened.  Madison tripped over her ADORABLE long white dress and busted her lip on the floor.  Session over for Miss Madison and Jason took her home.  I stayed for several more hours and just received Tyler's amazing photos.

Wanna see one of Tyler??  Fancy Pants photography is holding a contest.  Tyler is letter "M."

Bluebonnet Photos

Well it wouldn't be Texas without Bluebonnets.  I had these pictures taken the week of Madison's second birthday by Amber at Sprout Imagery.  All of the photos turned out beautiful.. here are a few of my favorites!











Madison wore a fall version of this dress in her six month photos.  I liked it so much I bought this hot pink spring version.

I'm such a stalker...

I was invited by my friend, Cassie, to attend MOPS with her this morning. I did MOPS in NC, but did not sign up for one when we moved here. She has invited me several times in the past, but I was not able to go for one reason or another. She titled her invitation e-mail to me "Big Mama." As soon as I saw the subject I was intrigued. I figured she was going to tell me how great she thought her blog was because I had recently mentioned her in a post. I opened the e-mail and about peed in my pants when I saw that she was going to be a speaker at her MOPS group.

The stars aligned and I was able to go. Jason is still home on paternity leave so he took Madison to school while I nursed Tyler. He flew back home to give me the car with car seats to go meet Cassie. I wanted to follow her to the church since I had no idea where I was going.

Cassie and I jumped in line to get breakfast and I glanced back and saw her walking in... I squealed and said OMG.. that's her. Cassie just giggled. Big Mama spoke on fashion.. and she looked oh so cute!



Toward the end of her speech I had to nurse Tyler. Big Mama (aka Melanie) finished up and stood around for a little while chatting with a few of the moms. I realized that she was about to exit. I quickly got myself somewhat put back together and started running for the door. I had a girl I just met following me so I could try and get a picture with her. I about tackled Big Mama at the elevator. Tyler spit up and I gushed.. she was so sweet. This photo cracks me up. I look a mess.. like I was running after a celebrity with a 12 day old in my arms which I guess is what I was doing! I'm loving the burp cloth on my shoulder and I swear my face is a little red from embarressment!


Don't worry!!  More Tyler only pics to come! ;)

Madison and Tyler Live!

video



The main question I get from everyone is "how is Madison with Tyler?" I figured the best way to explain it is to show it .. post nap nappy hair and all! I have been so nervous about having two babies, but it's wonderful. We are so blessed..

Madison's First Haircut

It's true.  She's two and has never had her hair cut.  I've been saying for a while now that it was time.  She has started to look like a rag-a-muffin.  Since I'm having this baby in two days (yes.. I'm being induced at 39 weeks) today was the day.

(Here is me and the baby about to ride up the elevator to my dr's appointment yesterday where we got the big news!)




And here is Madison's big haircut!

Before... looking a little rough.. :)  She was very happy to climb into the fire truck.  She kept saying "ride" for me to turn it on.  I'm not really sure why she is licking the steering wheel!





Happy as a clam with a tic tac (aka sucker) and Dora.




Looks so much smoother!!
