Just Showing off...

My precious baby.
He'll be 3 months on Friday.

My super cool girl, showing off her "addagator" from Florida.
He likes to chomp things.
It's becoming a problem:).
She'll be 3 in 2 1/2 months.

And, what I really wanted to show, just couldn't leave those cuties out...
Mitchel's present for Valentine's Day.
I thought this was SO cool.
They make all sorts of super sweet, super special pictures.
I'm going to order pics for both our kid's rooms, too.
They're in my list of great things on the right side.
LOVELIFE. (you can click here too)

And I mean it too, Mitchel:).
My first favorite...

Snowy Days

Just like the rest of Northeast Texas...
The Mershawn household woke up last Thursday morning to lots & lots of SNOW.
Mitchel got up with a certain giddy-ness that always let's me know something's up, then quickly came back with that little boy grin on his face....
"It's snowing."
Me (half asleep- after all I had been up only an hour before nursing)- "I know. The weatherman said it would be."
Him- "But, it's really snowing. Just thought you might want to know."
Thanks :).
He's so cute.

He went on to work.
Miss P got up & she and I bundled up & played outside until I could no longer take it. (about 30 minutes...hey, give me a break, this is NOT Texas weather)

Daddy came home early & the 2 of them went back out for more fun.
I played for a few minutes, then used baby Tuck as an excuse to go in:). 
(my mom's laughing right now...so me.)
I'm such a weinie.
It was SO pretty though, so I did have fun. Just cold fun.

Tucker spent his day inside.
Poor guy. I never even considered taking him out in it.
He's been battling a cold for almost 2 weeks now (grr), he has no bundle me up clothes, & I could hear my Nana....don't you think it's too cold out there for a baby?
He did get to stare at it through the window though.
He watched and watched as those huge flakes fell.

Cheeseburgers for dinner.
Made me happy.

Hot "shl-o-o-o-o-kit," monkey jammies, & Pinkalicious by the fire. :)

Day 2 & they were back at it.
Mitchel took Parker on a "walk" that landed them in the middle of a field.
I gently reminded him before they left that she was only 2 & not a grown man & that it was COLD.
They were gone an hour & 10 minutes.
So much for the reminder.

They built a giant snowman.
Dug & dug in the snow.
She told him she was cold.
He said, okay, let's take some pictures.
She did it.
She said her toes were cold.
He remembered my advice & headed home.
She did not freeze to death & he was sweating.
Crazy guy.

She had a blast.
Came home & drank more hot "shl-o-o-o-o-kit" (my new favorite word to hear her say).
And talked about the snow all day.
I love the change it brought.
The excitement.
And the reminder of the Lord's presence.

Happy Balemtime's Day

Lovin' is so fun:).
Especially on Valentine's Day.

We had a fun morning.
Parker's been waiting for this day.
Is it Balemtime's Day, yet?

She was a happy lady this morning.

And he's too cute to resist.
He was so ready for a nap right here.
I missed the smiles, & all I could get out of him was this.
That's okay. Still a sweetie.

And for a good laugh...
A conversation with my 2 year old tonight:
Me: "Parker, why didn't you tell me you had to poop on the potty?"

Parker: "Uuuummm....because.....I believe in JESUS!"

Well...I'm glad for that:). But I would also be glad for poop in the POTTY.

Countdown 1 year {2 months}

Saturday was this guy's 2 month birthday.
Life with him is still extra sweet.

Tucker is still very laid back, only cries when he's hungry or bored.
His days are filled with smiles, coo's, conversations with the ceiling fan, any light, our bedroom walls, his sister, his mom, & his dad.
And of course diapers, baths, playtime, & sleep.

He can now sleep 5 hours straight at night...sometimes 6.
He loves to play on his back, getting read to, & is starting to enjoy tummy time a little more.
I still seem to be a favorite to talk to & smile at, which...man...makes me warm & fuzzy inside.
He loves his dad, too, & follows him around the room with his eyes.
We're his favorite snugglers. :)

Today was his 2 month check up.
He had 3 shots & 1 oral vaccine. :(
Makes my stomach turn to watch.
Yuck. He's been sad today. So, I've been giving extra snuggles today. Only fair...
But, he's full, has tylenol in his system & is sleeping peacefully right now.
Tucker's weight: 13 lbs 7 oz (85%)
His height: 24 1/8 in (90%)
His head: 16 3/4 in (95%)
So funny. But he's SO cuddly, & I guess that's why.
Lots to love. :)
That's our boy. We love him so very much.
Happy 2 month birthday Tuck!
