Our boys

Peyton is ready for football to start! This is my Dad's helmet from when he was a little boy. When he goes to my parents house he thinks he has to either wear or carry it around the whole time. Shiloh plays their first game of the season this Friday against Prestonwood, TX. Go Saints!

Parker loves to lay on his blanket and practice kicking his legs. He'll be 3 weeks old this coming Wednesday!

Today was Parker's first Sunday at church. I didn't put him in the nursery and probably won't for a few more weeks. He stayed with us and was such a good boy!

Things got messy during an afternoon snack of yogurt.

Fun in the sprinkler with the Kennedy's.
Peyton's first trip to the beach! We had so much fun. (Watercolor, FL)

Peyton and Daddy having fun in the ocean. He loved it!
Peyton learned to sleep in his "big boy bed!" Rough start but now he loves it.

Here are some pictures from our summer. I can't believe school has already began and summer is over. But that means one thing around our is on it's way! Yeah!

Welcome home Parker

Eleven days ago we welcomed Parker Thomas into our family. He was born nearly four weeks early. I had been having contractions for 3 days. They weren't consistent though. That was until Wednesday. That morning Josh had taken Peyton to GiGi's (Jeana) for a bit and then she dropped him off at football practice with Josh. I wasn't feeling well that morning so they were trying to let me rest. After Josh left with Peyton that morning I begin to lay down and start timing my contractions again. After an hour of that they started lasting longer and getting regular. I called the doctor's office and talked to Allison (my sweet nurse) and she said I needed to come in ASAP to see Dr. Smith. So I called Josh and gave him the update. I told him they'll probably send me home so stay at practice with Peyton and I'll call back and give him an update as soon as I see the doctor. Next, I called Mom and she insisted on leaving work to come be with me. GiGi was next at the hospital to see how everything was. Dr. Smith thought if she gave me fluids through an IV and some meds the contractions would stop. So GiGi went on to her appt. while my Mom stayed with me. However, the contractions kept getting harder and lasting longer. The fluids and med wasn't stopping them. Dr. Smith said, "We need to get this show on it's will be Parker's birthday!" So phone calls and text messaging began to get everyone in place. Josh drove up to the hosptial and dropped off Peyton to Uncle Rick, GiGi left an appt. and Ronnie began on his way too. My Dad was out of town that day. :( We missed him but kept him updated throughout the whole thing. So Parker Thomas was born via c-section (Peyton was c-section so it had to be a repeat) at 3:48pm on Wednesday, August 8th. Things were crazy that day but we were all glad we got to meet Parker early! He was 6 lbs 14 oz. Here are some pictures from the last few days. We are so blessed to have two healthy precious little boys. Thank you Jesus!

Josh can't believe I've done this!

I've been thinking for some time to start a blog about our family. Josh is not sure about it, but we'll give it a try. I will soon update this with some recent pictures of our family.
