Momma & Dex

These OBVIOUSLY aren't the best pics of me, but you try holding a 20 pound camera (feels that way anyway) the wrong way and have a picture come out good :)  I think I was resting my chin on his shoulder in order to get leverage to hold that bad boy up.  With those skinny arms... dang, someone needs to work out! 

The thought in the back of my head was "you need to have pictures of you with your son!" and all I really see here is where his huge forehead and bad hairline comes from!  Haha!  Oh well, we tried!

"mom - this is embarrassing."  Note to self - welcome to 10 years from now.

Never Again

I can officially never think that I am a cool chick ever again.  This solidifies my status as just a MOM.  A beat down, worn out, just get me through this shopping trip MOM.  *sigh*

But look how much he loves it!!  :)

Happy Easter!

I hope everyone had a very happy Easter!  We had a good day, church and enjoying family time.  Here are some pics of Dex for your viewing pleasure... 

He wasn't overly thrilled for picture time this morning.

I wasn't sure how he'd do Easter egg hunting, but he picked it right up (literally).  It was very cute :)

This is how he smiles for the camera now...  He's saying cheeeeese, but for some reason he sticks his bottom teeth out!

Daddy Doug was right on hand with some ice cream if Dex ever needed a "break" from egg hunting.  Lucky kid... :)

Daddy & Son!  (note to self... hand the camera off sometimes so you'll have pictures of you WITH your family!)

Happy Easter Everyone!!

Video set up:
- Nothing except this that this is Dex's FAVORITE video to watch of himself!  I've gotta get a video of him watching his video!!  He laughs and laughs and laughs... and then looks around at us to make sure we are also laughing!  Hiiiiii-larious!

Couple of things to set up this video:
- This boy LOVES him some bubbles
 - A $6 bubble "gun" that shoots out bubbles may be the best money I've ever spent.  No kidding.  EVER. 
- Why is it that in all the videos I do, my first response to Dex's misfortune seems to be to laugh?
- Sean and I request you please not laugh at our talking/laughing in the background :)
- Enjoy!!

March for Babies Pictures!!

First of all, THANK YOU to everyone who donated!  I am so appreciative, you don't even know.  We have a lot of very kind friends and family :) 

Here are some pics from the March yesterday.  There were SO many people there, I couldn't believe it.  I had no idea.  I guess I figured there would be a lot, but let me tell you... there were A LOT of people!  Maybe even a million!  Not really, but it felt like it.  I was blown away.  It was extremely sad to see people walking in memory of babies they'd lost, because I can't even begin to understand what that would feel like.  But at the same time, there were so many babies that made it after having such a rough start to life.  It's was a bittersweet time for me.  But I am so glad we went, and that we were able to raise money for a very good cause!

We had to park and then ride a bus to the park for the walk.  Dex thought the bus ride was extremely interesting.

In front of Denny Hamlin's Nascar car.

It was pretty cold when we started!

Emi and Dex dancing.

Not sure what they were singing (?) but Dex looks into it!

He jumped right on in the bounce house... and proceeded to lay down most of the time he was in there :)

His outfit makes him look like a boxer in training.

Emi holding Dex up to get him in the picture with the start of the race.  He's like "what ARE you doing, woman?"

For most of the race Dex either wanted out of his stroller...

someone was carrying him...

or he was asleep!

Awesome time though!  So glad we did it!  Thanks again everyone for your support and to Pop & Emi for making the trip up to walk with us!

March for Babies

The March of Dimes March for Babies is THIS weekend!  I really can't believe it got here this quickly.  I am getting excited about it, I think the weather will be nice and we'll meet tons of cool people (and preemies). 

This is my last ditch plea for walkers and/or donations!  If you're going to be in the Dallas area on Saturday, go to our team page and sign up!!  :)

I will be sure to take lots of pictures to show you guys! 

In the meantime, here's Dex having a big time in Emi & Pop's pool last weekend...

Western Day Parade

Dex and I went to the country this weekend for a little bit of this:

While down there, we went to the Western Day Parade...

Watching them reminded me of a tennis match.  Heads left... heads right... heads left... heads right... 

Overprotected from the sun?  Never!!!

Of course we all had snowcones from The Shack.  Dex being the little prince he is, had to have his fed to him while he relaxed.

My crazy future BIL.  Lord help us all :)  J/K BLAKE!!

So much fun.  Oh, the things you miss from ye ol' country living :)
