Rett is the limb I never knew I had

When Kraig gets home in the evening, sometimes I go out and run errands or take care of some stuff that didn't get done during the day.  
Sometimes, we all go out together and that's a big help...Kraig is a wonderful help.  But sometimes, when I go, I don't take Rett with me or Kraig.  They get to stay home and spend some time together. I'm so thankful that Kraig loves to hang out with him and be a positive example to him.
But I have noticed, especially that last few times that I went out...I miss Rett.  I miss lugging the diaper bag and the stroller and everything else that comes with us when Rett goes out.  It has really been frustrating me because sometimes I just need a minute to refresh myself and have time to recoup from the day.  So, why am I missing him?
I am a minimalist...I like to think that anyway.  I like things to be made as easy as possible.  I like to carry as little as possible.  So, to miss all of that stuff was real aggravating.  
Then, I got to thin…

The Monsoon of 2009

This time roughly 4 years ago - Kraig and I were married.

We got married May 2, 2009.

I don't know if you all remember that like we do.  Granted, it was our wedding day/weekend so we won't forget but it was also the weekend the monsoon came through Chickamauga.

Much like this weekend.

On Thursday before the wedding, we got word that the weather was going to get really bad.  Now, we (I) wanted to get married outside!!!  We didn't buy flowers or things to decorate the church with because we WERE getting married outside.

When we heard how bad the weather was going to be...we had to make the tough decision to move the wedding inside.

It poured all morning long, much like let up long enough to get some pictures outside but not much.  Once we left and headed to our Bed and rained the rest of the weekend.

Here are some wonderful pics from that weekend!  I loved how it turned out.  I was pleased with everything.  Even without flowers and big decorati…

Just a little update...

I guess let's start out with who you really care about :)


Monday, Rett was 10 months.  Where have the days gone?!

He's gotten so big.  I love it but I sure do miss the days where he would let me snuggle him to sleep.

So, let's see...

We had to go to the doctor for a followup from his 8 month checkup.  They were concerned he isn't gaining weight like he should.  Talk about stressing a Mommy and Daddy out.  Well, he's fine.

He is healthy and active.  But he's still not gaining weight.  In 2 months, he didn't even gain a pound.  SAD!  And it's not for lack of trying.  I am still nursing but I have added in baby foods at 2 meals and lots of snacks so either he's just going to be little like his dad and mom OR because he's super active, he's just burning quicker than I can feed him.  Either way, he's not on the unhealthy range...just in the "keep an eye on" range.  We are thankful either way for a fun and active little guy.
