some pictures from the phone :)

one day last week we ate dinner at the house and decided to head to Chili's for a chocolate molten for dessert. jakson was COVERED in chocolate and got a doggy made from balloons. he was one happy boy :)

i love being with my boys all day. this was them one day while i was putting up the laundry

jakson loves shoes and that is an understatement. he is always in someone's shoes. this picture was from the other morning when we walked to a neighbor's garage sale...hahahha, only my child :)

this weekend we finally got to go to south carolina to meet our newest nephew Eli. We decided to leave jakson with his aunt Sis since he isn't the best on long car rides. He had a blast with his aunt sis, click here to see that :) That was a great decision considering the fact that our drive home was WAY longer than expected because we got stuck in traffic from a fatal accident on 1-85. We had a wonderful visit with Laura Beth, joe, joseph and Eli! Eli is a cutie and was so tiny :)

we had to cover little man's head so he didn't get sunburned!

missing our crazy jakson!

cousins, two months apart!

sad the weekend is over but i am excited to see what this week brings!!

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

M.W.O- Mother's Weekend Out :)

When Josh and i first got married we attended a church in our town. We met some really sweet people but never really felt connected or like it was where we were supposed to be. So after we had Jakson we started going to another church, Cedarcrest.

After being at cedarcrest for a little while i decided to try and get more connected to meet some people. I joined a ladies bible study and met some amazing women. I went through three different studies with some of the same women and some new women every study. I met some amazing ladies through it and have really started to gain some awesome friendships. Some of us now do playgroups together once a week. it has been a great thing for me and for jakson.

we decided to have a ladies only weekend. we picked a weekend and got all of our husbands to keep the kiddos while we had some girl time.

we got a hotel in atlanta where some stayed one night and some stayed two. we relaxed, talked, went to the movies, ate, shopped and layed by the pool! of course i missed my boys but had a blast getting to know these women on an even deeper level.

i didn't take many pictures this weekend bc i never felt like lugging my big old camera around but here are the few that i did take...

What a FUN and relaxing weekend, even though i might have gotten less sleep than i do at home with all of the talking we did :) it was so worth it though!

love you girls, thanks for a great weekend!

he is getting an adorable double chin!

holding his head up better. still isn't the best at it but he is getting better.

he is sleeping SO great. goes down anywhere from 9:30-11:00 and wakes up as early as 5:30 or 8 at the latest. once he is up he eats a little and will go back to sleep again.


tummy time is a major fail. he either screams of falls asleep.

he started smiling!! :)


he also started coo-ing. love listening to that sweet little voice.

in the car-- he likes it to be in motion. as soon as you stop at a red light he starts screaming.

takes a paci in certain situations but isn't reliant on one.


CUTE as can be!! we love him so much. especially big brother jakson. the first thing jakson does when i get him in the morning is look for his brother :) makes my heart happy.

i sure do love my little henry tate :)

just pickin' some blueberries

Jakson's Mimi and Pop have some awesome blueberry bushes in their yard and jakson got to go out and help them pick the blueberries a couple of weeks ago. he LOVED it. basically this is how it went--pick and eat, pick and eat, pick and eat. Yes, little man was full of blueberries :)

We stayed for dinner since his daddy was working on our kitchen and we had blueberry pancakes...YUMM!

my cute momma picking her garden

Hope you have a wonderful day

a blogging slacker!!

yes it is true, I have been horrible at blogging lately. it is so hard to find the time to do anything these days so blogging has taken a backseat. Last night I worked on catching up on Jakson's baby book. i would look back at blog posts to fill things in that i had missed and it made me realize how much i LOVE blogging. i would look back on events or stories and think oh my gosh i completely forgot about that. so yes, i LOVE blogging and am going to keep at it so i can look back and remember...

Henry Tate is almost 8 weeks old, wow! i can't even believe it. it is just flying by so fast.

yup, swaddle FAIL.

recent pictures from the phone...

hope you all have a wonderful week :)

However, as it is written:

“What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived”—
the things God has prepared for those who love him—
