video time

This was a covert operation to record this. Michael doesn't love being recorded while playing the guitar so I had to sneak this video on Saturday morning.

Banks is a pro when it comes to sitting up... with a little help of course. Plus, it is a sure way to get any stubborn burps out.

just can't get enough

a cabin weekend

The cabin is a magical place as I've mentioned before. Sunday afternoon we decided to have a mini photo shoot with the fam. Thanks to Sam and Chas, their picture taking skillz, and Cam, their camera, we have these.

Summer is almost

This was taken a few weeks ago at my sister in laws wedding.
I just had to put it up for obvious reasons.

do you know the Banker man?

Mr. Banks is 2 months old.
We have successfully kept another human being alive for 2 months...where's my gold star?
The longest yet quickest 2 months of my life. Long because I am still not 100% healed, quickest because Banks is so grown up! He has been sleeping through the night for the last 3 weeks and counting...blessed be. He also treats Mommy to a 4 hour nap everyday in addition to his other 2 to 3 hour naps each day...blessed be. I may be the only new Mommy, or perhaps one of the few, who doesn't feel like a zombie. My secret you ask? Well, the more time that goes by, the more I realize most of this has nothing to do with me. I wish I could say I was so good at this gig that I knew the secret to a good sleeping baby but guess what, I am totally convinced he came that way. I read a baby book while prego that convinced me that if he slept well it was because of my skillz, but I am pretty sure this is bogus. That being said, I think there are things parents can do to help their babies be happy sleepers or vice versa. I just consider myself one of the lucky ones and count my blessings. Being a Mom is pretty much the best thing ever and I mean that with all my heart, and who knew we'd make'em so cute too? That I will claim as being one of my skillz.

a bridal shower celebration

the happy couple

Eli, Katie, and were missed

Cafe Rio copy cat salads...better than the real thing, just ask Annie

we always have to have at least one bad jumping picture

McCaye is getting married and we, her dear friends couldn't be more excited for her. We had a little shower in her honor this last weekend and it was a success.

a vintage baby shower

My cousin Brittany is having a baby girl so we decided to celebrate. Sam collected all the decor from some friends who apparently have a nack for finding treasures. We had tons of fun as families usually do. Once again, Mom and Dad's new house hit the spot.
