Beckett has had so many ear infections so today we went to see the ENT at Vanderbilt. Beckett is not a fan of doctor's looking in his ears but he did like the doctor tools!

Beckett is definately becoming more of his surroundings. He has started to come and sit on my lap when he wants attentions. He wraps his arms around me and just snuggles. Love him!

Outdoor TIme

It was a beautiful afternoon to put the slide up. I've been wanting one for awhile and the Watts gave us their old one! So much fun!
The kids sure love their dogs.

I had ordered Halloween costumes online and got them today! The kids had to put them on right away. So cute!

Baby Hugs

Beckett has started giving the best hugs. He wraps his arms around my neck and taps my back. So incredibly sweet.

Sweet baby hugs and kisses, so worthwhile!

Sweet Memories

Tonight we went to the ballpark and watched Jack play. It was nice to catch up with Melanie and hear some of her stories.
Will came over to play for a little while this afternoon. He isn't going to Methodist Preschool this year and Paityn misses him!

While we played outside today, we found this huge frog! I think one of the funnest things about typing this up so much later is remembering all these little things. Seeing these pictures brings all these memories right back!

Tonight as I laid Beckett down I asked him if he was asleep and he said NOPE! This kid is the comedian of the bunch!

Days Off

Days off with my babies are the best.

Although my job is tough and I get overwhelmed at times, the times like this make it all worthwhile.

First Day of MDO

Today is Beckett's first day of MDO. I thought starting school all different days would be tough but I don't believe there is anyway emotionally  I could've sent all my kids back to school the same day!

I'm thankful that Beckett will be in good hands at the Bethlehem Baptist MDO but it's hard realizing how quickly he has grown up.
Paityn is still taking dance and seems to love it!

My sweet little Paityn is so ready for preschool. 

I remember dropping her off at her first day of MDO and now she is officially in her PreK year!

I think one of the hardest parts of this day is knowing that in one year she will be starting kindergarten!

I know she is in great hands, we love Mrs. Sheila! She has taught at the Methodist Preschool for years. I know Paityn will love her!
Preschool wore her out! Thankful for my mother in law who helps out so much with picking up and caring for my kids while I work!

CME Conference

This Friday we headed to Memphis for a CME conference. While mom and I went to the conference on Saturday, Brandon hung out with the kids. It had gotten to be a long afternoon so mom and I decided to sneak out for coffee during a small break. It was a nice little walk until we got to Starbucks and it started to pour! We tried to call a cab and they said it would be about an hour so we headed back in the rain. At least it was good coffee and company!

After a day of conferences, Brandon and I headed out for shopping and food.

I love our family dates and time away from "life"

These mini vacations are the best!
