First Razorback Game

We went up to Fayetteville this weekend to cheer on the Hogs and visit my family.



Shad LOVES his MommaShad (she still doesn't have a name! Any suggestions?!)


Shad and his 2nd cousin Kaitlyn.


Isn't his outfit cute? My mom made it!



We tailgated with Kent's parents, George and Gail.


And I was able to run 7 miles!

Six Months


Our sweet Shad turned 6 months old yesterday!

He is so much fun and such a happy baby.


He is sitting up with no support and lunges forward onto his belly to get a toy out of reach.

We love him to pieces!

Shad decided he hates peas...







We ran errands today and both had blue on.


Happy Weekend!

Crib Time

Shad slept in his crib for the first time last night!



It may seem a little late to just now be sleeping in his crib, but its not because we haven't tried!

He just really loved his bassinet, but his head was literally against the wicker edge.


He seems to finally be ready for some more room. His arms are free, but his legs are still swaddled. It worked last night, so we will keep trying!

4 Month Visit

Shad had his 4 month visit and shots today. He weighed 17.2 pounds, which puts him in the 87th percentile. He is 26.5 inches long which is the 93rd percentile. Such a big boy!


Waiting on our doctor.









The doctor suggested introducing one new food a week so we started with peas today!


Thinking about it....


Yummmm!

MommaShad Visits

Yesterday I started another full month of bootcamp and my mom came down to watch Shad.


They are best pals!

Lazy Sunday

Shad and I were going to run errands today but the kid has not had a bowel movement in THREE days. I am scared to take him anywhere for fear that we will have an poop explosion in public!

Kent did an amazing job with the shrimp boil last night.


We will have lots of shrimp based meals in the near future...I made shrimp bisque and fancy cheese toast for lunch. Tonight we are having Cajun shrimp pasta. Yum!


I got new "work" shoes yesterday. Love them!


Shad was four months yesterday! He would not sit still for me.


This was the best I could get.


This is month 1, 2, 3, & 4.


Kent and I call the jumper-roo Shad's "happy place".


We hang it in the living room doorway. There is a mirror where he watches himself jump.


He just jumps, jumps, jumps!

Errands & Seafood

Today our little family of three ran errands, snuggled our sweet baby and now we are about to have a shrimp boil.

Here's the big guy in his polo shirt and swim trunks! Too cute.


Kent went on his yearly red fish trip in Venice, Louisiana last week. It's basically as far as you can drive south, then you hit water and start fishing! He goes with 25 other men and they stay on 2 house boats.


He brought back 100 pounds of jumbo shrimp and we are boiling a little bit of it tonight with corn and red potatoes.


We've gotten into a bad (but wonderful!) habit of taking a nap together. I love snuggling this baby!


I took a before/after yesterday of myself to put on my bootcamp page so I can be accountable and encourage my people. This picture is one week after baby and about 100 days later. I seriously thought I was SO skinny in the before picture. Crazy me!

June 1!

I'm going to (attempt to) blog everyday this month.

Today Shad and I are at the pool. He's hanging out in his stroller and I'm trying to turn my super pale skin a darker shade.





Kent captured a sweet, everyday occurrence last night. Kisses and giggles with momma and baby!

Weekend Roundup

We discovered Shad loves to jump!


He wore himself out and just fell asleep!


I snagged this HUGE all wood buffet off Craigslist for practically nothing.


She said she was selling it because it was broken. Do you see that handle on the second drawer hanging down? That's what she called "broken." I got home and put a screw in the back and it's fixed!

I finished these chairs and I LOVE them!


My dear friend Tonya stayed with us on Friday night.






Saturday morning Tonya went with Spencer and I to the Warrior Dash in Amity (near Arkadelphia).


It was an obstacle course 5K which included crawling under barbwire, fire jumping, climbing 2 30 foot walls only using ropes, swimming over 5 rows of barrels in a swamp (it was gross) and finished up with a crawl thru a bunch of mud.









There were 6,000 people that ran this 5K. I saw the results last night and I placed 13th in my age division (female, 20-29 yrs). I seriously have not ran more than two miles since I was 7 months pregnant. I wish now that I would have trained a little, I could have won some money!

Kent fixed a huge manly dinner on Saturday night.


We got lots of snuggles from our precious baby yesterday.


Shad's mothers day present to me was taking a 3 hour nap so I could get a bunch of painting done. Isn't that what you want to do when you get a little free time?!?
