A Little of Everything!!!!

I know I am blogging about this a little late...but...for Spring Break we headed to Winter Haven, Florida! My parents live there and it is where I grew up! It only about 45 minutes outside of Orlando...so you can imagine we had a blast! BA had a lot of "firsts" that week! He had his first trip to a theme park, first bite of "solid" food (cereal and sweet peas), first time riding in his big boy stroller...Enjoy the pictures. I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying this beautiful spring time weather! Have a great Easter. Take time to reflect on what Christ did for us as he suffered and died a cruel death on the Cross. What an amazing thing! Praise the Lord He did that for me!

We visited Seuss Landing at Islands of Adventure at Universal Orlando

Universal City Walk lights up at night will all kinds of fun - due to having a baby we no longer get to participate in any sort of night life...but that is OK we would not trade it for anything!

Riding in my big boy stroller!
Meeting Popeye and Olive Oil! BA was very interested in Popeye. Please excuse the fact that I have a whole lot more weight to lose after carrying my sweet boy for 9 months! (Boy...pictures sure do let you know when you need to fix something!)
Wes (or Uncle Bubba) (as Caden and Paige (my sister's children) call him) with Caden!

Nick Studios at Universal Studios Orlando

Hanging out in my stroller. BA is and was such a great baby that day! He enjoyed taking in all the sights!

My first taste of cereal. BA was not to sure about the whole spoon thing, but he has since gotten the hang of it and loves his food!!

Daddy giving me my cereal for the first time!

Uncle Bubba and Baby Paige. Obviously Paige is no longer a baby....when my sister found out she was pregnant with Paige, Caden started calling his new sister, "baby Paige" and it has stuck...that is what we all call her now :) I love nick names :)

BA hanging out with Auntie Summer (my sister)!
Hope you enjoyed your spring break as much as we did!
Love to all!!!

BA turns 3 months old....

Here are a few shots from BA's 3 month session...kind of a month late getting them up since he is now 4 months old but oh well!!!
He is growing like a weed...rolling over, holding his head up, laughing, "talking" to us, discovering a love for baby food and baby cereal...I could go on and on!!! Wes and are enjoying every moment - watching him grow and discover! Enjoy the pics!
*Of course Wes took them! I love having a husband that is a professional photographer!!!

FUN....in the Snow

On Friday, Feb. 12, it snowed in Troy!!! It was so beautiful! We got around 5-6 inches of snow. Of course I was off work for a snow day because us South Alabamians do not know how to drive in the snow....so Wes and I enjoyed the day watching the snow fall and hanging out with BA!

We took BA outside for a few minutes to capture a couple of pictures with him in the snow....he liked it for a few minutes, but some snow hit him in the face and he let us know he had enough!

BA is 3 1/2 months old and growing like a weed! Wes had to take him to the doctor last Wednesday because a runny nose turned into a small infection...so we are on our very first dose of antibiotics. He weighed 13.3 pounds and is around 25 inches long - he is very long and skinny! He is wearing 6-9 months size clothes for the length but everything is too big in the shoulders and waist! I have a feeling I am going to have a hard time keeping up with his growing as far as clothing is concerned :) BA continues to learn new"tricks" (as Wes and I call them) he is smiling, laughing, cooing at us and his toys, loves watching Baby Einstein, smiles when he sees mommy and daddy, and holding his head up very well while on his tummy....we are loving every moment! We have also started transitioning BA to sleeping in his crib - he has been in a cradle in our room since he was born. I think this has been harder on me than him...I like knowing he is right beside me, but I am working on it! Wes loves working from home and hanging out with BA during the day! We feel so blessed that photography has allowed Wes to work from home!

I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day!

We miss and love you all!

Organizing for 2010

So we all make New Year's Resolutions...and this year is no different for me...
Although we did not manage to stay awake to see 2009 turn into 2010, I am still making a resolution! My resolution - to organize my tiny cottage! Now that I have a sweet baby and his numerous toys, swings, bouncy seats, diapers, wipes, etc...taking up some space, our 1200 square foot cottage is slowly closing in on us! No, this will not be the house we grow old in, but I would like for it to be organized while we are here! Now, let me just say that organization is not a characteristic of mine, but for 2010 I am going to try my best! The biggest issue is our teeny tiny closets! Since this cottage was built in the 1940's closet/storage space is well...non-existent! I have bought some storage cubes from Lowe's that my wonderful husband assembled and I put them in BA's closet to organize the diapers, wipes, bath products, etc. I am thinking of putting them in our closets to make the space more efficient! But what I really need is some creative ideas! If you have any, leave me a comment and let me know what they are! Another critical issue is this...my teeny tiny dinning room is going to become Wes's home office. No, this is not an ideal situation but it is the best right now - with the photography business booming, he needs the space to spread out his computer stuff, camera stuff, and printing stuff! So, I am going to have to search for some creative ideas to make it flow with the rest of the house....I don't want it to look junkie. With all that said, shoot me some ideas! Have a great Weekend!!!

Love yall,

Go Troy Trojans and 2 month check up!

Wow...2 blogs in 2 days...is this girl for real?!
So today we had our 2 month check up for our sweet BA...
He weighed 11lbs. 12oz. and was 24 inches long! He is a growing boy! He also got his first set of shots :( (I think he did better than mommy did)! He did rather well...he let out a loud cry...one where you have to remind them to take a breath...kinda cry...and then daddy picked him up and he calmed down...and by the time we had made it back to the car he was asleep (probably from the Tylenol) God Bless some Tylenol! So all was well and the doctor said he looked fantastic and was developing normally. Now you know the Special Education Teacher in me makes sure we are hitting developmental milestones!
Here are some pictures Wes took when he was just a week old!

On another note....The Fabulous Troy University Trojans are playing in the GMAC Bowl tonight in Mobile, Alabama! Just wanted to give a shot out and cheer for my Alma Mater! Wes and I both graduated from Troy and we love our little school!

Hope everyone is staying warm - we have a chance of snow tomorrow here is beautiful Troy, Alabama...hope it happens!

Blessings, Meagan

I am still here....

So since my life has dramatically changed (for the better) I have kinda abandoned the blog...
On November 3rd, 2009 we were blessed with an amazing gift...our baby boy, Brock Allen arrived at 4:23 pm! He weighed 8lbs. 15 oz and was 21 1/4 inches long!
With all the feedings, diaper changes, laundry, holding my sweet little boy, tummy time, and just being a mommy I have had little time to even look at a computer. With that said, I love motherhood! What a special and amazing miracle Wes and I have experienced! My labor and delivery went very well...slightly painful as my epidural did not take on one side...but it was all worth it when I laid eyes on my sweet little man! He is perfect in every way...and we are so blessed to have a healthy baby! He is a good sleeper and loves to be held! We have hit the 2 month milestone and he has slept a straight 6 hours several nights in a row! I have been blessed to have a long maternity leave but will be going back to work on Jan. 19th. It is bittersweet...Wes will be taking over at home once I return to teaching. He has turned in his resignation to Troy University and will be a stay at home dad and a full time photographer! Our photography business has been growing like crazy so we have made the decision to push it even further into a full time career! Please pray for us as we take this huge step of faith and trust that this is where the Lord is leading us...and if you know someone that had a need for a photographer...send them our way...we do travel! (http://www.wesrobertsphotography.com/)
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year! Happy 2010...I will leave you with some newborn pictures of our sweet boy - Brock Allen!!!

Lots of Love for 2010,

Meagan xo
