Don't blink...

This crazy life just keeps going too fast! All I've got are some random phone pictures and a few brain cells that haven't been affected by having a baby. We have been doing a little more of the same over that past few weeks....hanging with drew, working, and trying to enjoy the silly weather we have been having. A lot of heat, rain and now gorgeous temps with blue skies. David, melissa, drew and i flew to nashville, TN a couple weeks ago. Melissa and i had a gymnastics seminar and David had an outdoor/qdma convention in Nashville, the same weekend! Crazy! So we packed up and all went! Justin took us out for pizza night 1 and Ryan took us downtown for some drinks and music night 2. We hired a babysitter for the day and she graciously stayed until 11pm the night we went downtown. It was fun hanging with adults until almost midnight! Drew did great while we were there and was a champ on the plane again. Back home, We spent a couple days with cousins that were in town that we have not seen in a while. Debbie, heather, jennifer and their kids were in town and we had a lot of fun hanging with them. They loved meeting Drew and im sure he loved the attention that he got! We have enjoyed a nice dinner with Jay, Jennifer, Graham and Will Weaver at Snookys. We enjoyed a nice dinner with Billy and Meredith at Patios, sans kids. We are knocking out projects around the house (which seem never-ending, thanks leaky ceiling). Tonight, we are doing family night at the beach house and tomorrow we are doing lunch with a childhood gymnastics friend, Jason Troutman and his son Jax. Tuesday morning, drew and I are heading home (sp) for a dentist appointment and a short visit. Then it's Labor Day! Sheesh. Like I said, don't blink.

Phone Phun

Here are some pictures from my phone/instagram lately.....and seeing that a baby usually compromises one of my hands all the time, I'm thankful for a good camera on my phone.

6 months old....

Drew Month 6
We went to the doctors for Drew's 6 month check up on 8/2/12 and he is growing just fine!  Everything checked out great again and we are so happy about that.  He weighs 18lbs (50%) and is 25.75 (50%) inches long.  His noggin is 17.75 (75%...he's growing into it!!).  You can find out more on what he is into lately by clicking on "Building our Fort", but I wanted to show off is precious 6 month old chair pictures....

Fort Beach/Baby Fest

Every year we have friends come into town to stay at Granny Sledge's beach house and every year brings another type of fun.  For a couple years, it was just adults.  Then it grew to mostly adults, pregnant Becca and a couple kids from other families.  This year, watch out.  We were almost taken over by children under 3.  It was fun none the less and we look forward to something like this every year.  My brother came into town with Cam early in the week while Carly and Grey were in California.  They joined us later in the week and Drew got to hang with his cousins all weekend.  Billy and Meredith came with William (2y) and Olivia (4.5months) and Brian and Liz Shelburne came as well.  Grandparents were in and out as well as Jennifer, Curry, Liza and Margaret.  I'll let the pictures do the talking (mostly kid pictures) but rest assured that everyone got some good play time at the 2012 Fort Beach Baby Fest.
