Isabelle is so lucky. She has the sweetest uncle!
{he is already spoiling her!}

Uncle Garner sent her a gift, an adorable silk blanket. I absolutely love it! I can already see her cuddling with it.

Funny. Today I was watching something on TV (ok. maybe it was House Hunters on HGTV.) and they were in the Grand Caymans. Reminding me of this time when Dyer and I went to the Caymens after I graduated Baylor .. then I remembered that it was exactly 5 years ago today.

I thought I would share:

(I wish we could go back yesterday. Someday we will go and take along the lil' ones. I can't wait.)


This weekend we've been busy bees, working on things like this:

{the blanket, clearly still in the works. and i've been eating sour patch kids and watching who's wedding is it anyway?.}

{the sweet fabric from my nursery when I was little.}

{rowdy. mad after his bath.}

{baby ICH. dancing to gwen stefani in there. i'm sure.}
{and dyer .. well he is busy trying to catch up on sleep before work tonight. 12hours/night in the er x6days per week would wear anyone out. not to mention that he did really well on step 3, that would tucker me out too.}

I can't believe it. I say it often.. time flies.

25 weeks: Head to heels, I'belle now measures about 13 1/2 inches, and about a pound and a half. She's beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat (love it!). As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she'll start to look more and more like a newborn.

Belly continues to grow.
Molding is justaboutdone! (Um, then there is painting.)
Cord banking - registered.
Bedding picked out.
Baby quilt started.
Labor/ delivery 'what to expect' information read .. have I mentioned I have sort of put this part off.

Not checked:
Birth classes.
A million other things. :)


See that.
i. can't. get. enough.

{i have some sono pics of a v.i.p. but our computer/ guest/ nursery room is in a little bit of a disarray and i'm unable to scan pics of that sweetness at this time. soon we'll be in business.}

sweet boy.

Parents x2: that's right Dyer and I already have a little one! Rowdy! Sweet boy was a b-day gift from Dyer a few years ago (ok. its been almost 5.). "Creamy" was a pound puppy with a funny name from the Humane Society, and he has been the best dog!

Rowdy's favorites: laying in a pile of warm clothes, treats, sleeping, tearing up boxes he finds in the recycling when he is mad, loving on his mom and dad, dog fighting, his 9pm bed time (really, he gets up and heads off to his bed at the same time every night), sleeping with DH everynight .. under the covers. His dislikes: other dogs/ animals, when the receiver turns on for the TV, that is about it.

I thought I better give Rowd a little shout out since he may not get too much coverage once little peanut comes.
(This is when we first got Rowdy.)
I realize that there are a lot of Rowdy pics, but when going through the 100 million+ pics of him it was hard to decide. I might add, while looking through pics I realize how fast time flies.

{so this is a little start to something for baby i'belle. i am hand stiching, involving no sewing machine, a blanket for her. the fabric with the blue and pink print was the actual fabric from my room when I was a baby.}

Speaking of she, I had another sono a few days ago and there was confirmation that baby was in fact a girl. She continues to grow like a weed, a sweet 24wk dancing weed!

out west.

A few weeks ago I went to Lubbock and spent some time with the sweetest, cutest of little one-year-olds, Jackson!

It was so good to have a little mini vacation and see Michelle, Jack, and Ross.
{& we had the opportunity to do all things Isabelle!}

Jack and his momma, Michelle!
