No Nap but Painting

Friday we were over at my parents house in the afternoon so that I could finish working on Stella's costume for Halloween. I put Stella down for a nap in my old bedroom and was downstairs feeding Rhett a snack when I heard a bang come from upstairs. I wondered what it was because Stella had been up in bed or about 45 minutes. When I got up stairs I was not a very happy momma. Stella had gotten up and into the closet in my old bedroom, she had found some paint and was painting everything with her fingers, most of the paint went on her cute clothing! Well, we no longer have this outfit because it made it into the trash!

One Crazy Girl

Stella loves to watch movies on our portable DVD player and so we let her as a treat. The other day I walked into her room to check on her and she had climbed up on her changing table and was watching the movie from there.

Isabella and Nicolas Birthday Party

On Saturday we got to go to a beary special party for Sister Isabella and Brother Nicolas. It was a Bernstein Bear themed party and a lot of fun. My photos did not turn out really great but here are a few that I was able to get. This was really neat, Lorena painted the brother and sister bear and the kids got to all have their photos taken with it.
Stella was being her normal self at the food table taking bites with out anyone watching or so she thought. Wonder when she will realize that her momma always knows!
Nicolas and his one of his grandmothers.

These are of Gigi and Rhett hanging out at the party. He was very happy to be in his Gigi's arms all afternoon.

Just Because

Just because he is so darn cute! Those big blue eyes and that pretty red hair, he is also starting to get a second chin. My tiny little baby is getting bigger every day.

I found out today why Rhett does not take naps in his own bed very well. He is still sleeping in the pack in play in our room at night but I was trying to start putting him down for naps in his own room so that I could get use to it and then start maybe moving him there at night. I could not figure out why he would never end up sleeping in his own bed. Well, today I discovered the reason! Stella has been going into his room and using this leather stool to get to him in his bed. She is such a mess! She was looking at me going "Momma, Rhett wake up!" Needless to say the stool has been taken out of his room and he takes wonderful naps in his bed!

These photos are after Rhett had just had a bath, Jason loves to take Rhett's hair and put it up in a little Mohawk! Of course you will also see that if the camera is out Stella must have her photo taken also.

My Little Teenager

I have to say a big thank you to the person that invented the portable DVD player. It has been a life saver with a newborn and a two year old. I do not like for Stella to watch a lot of TV but for those times that I need her to be calmed down or she needs a nap and will not go down it has been a life saver. She thinks that she is big stuff to have a "TV" in her room. I was looking at her the other day and could not believe how grown up she looked.

Rhett 6 Weeks

I can not believe that Rhett is already 6 weeks old, time is flying by so fast. He is such an amazing little man and a perfect addition to our family. We have switched his formula and this has made for a much happier little guy, he is now eating 4 to 6 ounces every 3 hours. He loves to sleep on his tummy, will sleep for 4 or 5 hours on his tummy but on his back an hour tops. I have given in and just let him sleep on his belly even though they say he should be on his back. He gives the sweetest little smiles, especially when you play with his hair. I love his hair, it is such a pretty color and I really hope it stays reddish. God really did bless us with a wonderful little man, we love you Mr. Rhett!

Babby Carrier

Jason has made fun of me for using this baby carrier because he thinks it is something a "hippie" would use, well Tuesday night when Rhett was wanting to be held but Jason needed to get some things done he did not think it was such a bad idea! I had to take a photo of him using it, he was not real happy with me!

Pumpkin Patch

Saturday we took the kids to the pumpkin patch that is right by our house. We meet up with Connor, Parker, Scarlett Bell and their parents. It is not a huge pumpkin patch but the kids got to run around and have a good time. They loved the wagons and all the hay to climb up on, Stella pretty much just wanted to do whatever the boys were doing. Rhett was a trooper and just hung out.
