Scarlett Bell's 1st Birthday

Sunday we got to attend Scarlett Bell's first birthday party! It was so much fun and Melanie did a great job with everything. Stella is really starting to understand birthday parties or should I say she understands that parties equal cake, which she really likes! She got to play with all of her friends and had so much fun.

Daddy's Parenting Style

Daddy's have interesting parenting styles. Instead of telling Stella to get off the back of the couch and making her stop turning the sink on and off, that would have just been way to much work. Jason just put the child gate up in the cut out so she could not reach through anymore. It does not matter I guess that she is standing on the back of the couch and climbing everything, at least she can not longer reach the water.

I do not know why we got Stella a bed because this is how we find her every evening. It is not always in this spot but it is never in her bed.


Stella has found the piano at my parents house and loves it. I have to say it is pretty funny to see her sitting there banging away. On Wednesday evening she found some reading glasses and thought they might help her play better. It was funny to see Jason in his glasses and Stella in hers and once again it tells you how much they look alike. Then of course Jason had to take it to a whole next level ad put black sunglasses on both of them while they were playing.

Sunday Breakfast

Stella loves to jump in our bed, we do not allow this except on Sunday mornings while we are getting ready for church. Stella gets to have her breakfast while we are getting dressed. She thinks she is big stuff watching cartoons and sitting in our bed.

Rhett's Room

No, Rhett has not arrived yet but we do have a room ready for his arrival. There are still some finishing touches but for the most part it is complete. I have been asked for some photos of it, so here you go!The car seat will obviously be put in our car at some point and not be staying in the room.
Jason did an amazing job on this wall! The table is temporary until I find a night stand that I really like for that spot. It will work for the time being.
This wall has some items to be hung over the dresser, they just have not arrived yet. I am also trying to figure out a way to hide the diaper organizer, it is not very cute but very much a needed item.

This is the item that makes the room perfect! My aunt and cousins just sent it to us, it shows the three stages of Busch Stadium! We are huge Cardinal fans and Rhett will grow up to be one also so it could not have been a more perfect gift for him to have forever!

Grape Festival

This week was the 111th Grape Festival in Tontitown. We thought it would be fun to take Stella out to see all the rides and eat some grape ice cream. She had a wonderful time but was sad that the only ride she was tall enough to get on was the merry go round. She loved all of the food and left on a huge sugar high. I have to admit that I love the food also and was on a bit of a sugar high myself.

Stella is just learning how to drink out of open bottles, she is doing pretty good but is really funny if she spills the extremely cold drink on herself.

She really wanted on this ride but the guy would not let her, she was very sad.
A little of the food that caused us to be on a sugar high.

The heat did not make this pregnant girls feet very happy, I know that I have ankle bones in there some were.
Someone asked for a bite of her grape ice cream, I think she growled at them.
Dancing to the band.

Heading out with her Papi.
