Christmas Card 2010

Okay-so I know that the last time I blogged was way back at the beginning of the summer- Memorial Day weekend to be exact, so here I am-finally. We have been very busy with-well, life and blogging has taken a back seat. I am hoping to do better about blogging, especially since I haven't recorded much of Brady's 1st year!

The real purpose of this post is to tell you about a fantastic offer from Shutterfly. Shutterfly is a great website where you can order anything photo. Cards, calendars, invitations, and so much more! We have ordered several things from Shutterfly in the past and have always been happy with their products! This year, we are going to order Christmas Cards from Shutterfly because they are offering 50 free Christmas Cards to bloggers! I'm here to show you some of their beautiful cards that we are going to choose from-they are all awesome and it's going to be a difficult decision!

I especially love the cards where you can put multiple pictures!
This card is beautiful! I love the monogrammed letter in the middle with the photos around it!
Another photo card that I love is this square one! I love that it's not your typical rectangle, but it's a square with multiple photos all around! Plently of places for pictures of Marlee and Brady!
I also like the card that just has a spot for one picture! It's almost impossible to get a perfectly posed family picture with two little ones, but in case we do, I know which card we'll choose!

So many choices, now which to choose? You'll have to be on the look out in your mailbox to see which card won our vote!

Oh, and if you need any ideas for Christmas presents, we love giving calendars! You can personalize them with birthdays, anniversaries, and special occasions! Not to mention all the fun pictures you can add to it too!

Hope you all have a fantastic Christmas season!

Memorial Day weekend in Huntsville

The last few years we've gone to Huntsville to visit my parents over Memorial Day weekend! It's fun to go with James, Audrey, and Courtney, and now Brady too!! Next year there will be 4 grandkids running around! Speaking of running, there's a 10k race that we've run in the past, and are planning on running next year! We always have a good time and this time was no different! The girls got to ride the carousel and play in the fountain at their outdoor mall! Fun times! Can't wait for next year!

Summer Fun!

Just a few random pictures from the last few weeks!! We've had a fun summer so far getting together with friends to play or swim!!! Can't wait for the rest of the summer!!


One Month Old!

One month old-already! Wow!! I can't even tell you where this last month has gone. We are getting adjusted to life with two kids-it's busier, but we wouldn't trade it for anything! Brady is getting sweeter by the day! He is more alert and awake during the day and is a little more predictable as far as his schudule goes. He eats every 2 hrs during the day and about every 3-4 during the night (up 2x at night). Not too bad! Marlee loves her her little brother. Every morning she asks to "See Brady". When I take her in to see Brady, she says "Awww, sooo sweet" or "so nice", and pets his head! It really is sweet!! She also loves to give him sweet kisses!

Brady has given us a few smiles (we have yet to catch one on camera) and is also cooing and starting to "talk" to us!! Looking forward to seeing more baby milestones in the upcoming days/weeks!!

Brady Edward is here!

Our sweet baby Brady Edward is here! He joined our family April 29 at 6pm! We went in that afternoon around 2ish to be induced and by 3, my doctor came in to break my water, by 4 I was getting an epidural, and by 6 Brady was born!! It was a little scary for a few minutes during the delivery as his heartbeat dropped and he almost got stuck, but thankfully Dr. Robbins was able to get him out by delievering his shoulder/arm first then getting the rest of him out! When he came out we were all shocked at how big he was!! A whopping 9 lbs 6 oz, 20 inches long! WOW!! I was thinking in the 8 lb range, not a 9 lb baby! The next few days in the hospital were great, we got great sleep and had lots of visitors! As we were getting ready to leave on Saturday, we were told that we had to stay an extra night because Brady had a slight case of jaundis and had to be under lights till the next morning! That was hard, but we wanted to make sure he was healthy so we stayed an extra night! We were finally able to leave Sunday evening about 5:30pm and were so glad to get home!

our first week at home has been great! Marlee loves her little brother and is so sweet with him! My parents have been a HUGE help this week! I don't think I could've survived without them!!!

We are so blessed to have 2 health kids at home and can't wait to see what the future holds for them!

Last picture pregnant! About to get the induction underway! 38+ weeks preggo!

Brady is here!!!

Does that scale really say 9.6 lbs?!??!?!
