Our Mister

This is by far the hardest post I have ever had to write. I accidentally hit Mister with the car, and his wounds were too severe, so we had to put him down on Sunday afternoon. We truly do feel so heart-broken. He was a member of our family and part of our every day lives for the past 4 years, so it is a very tough loss. I know it was a complete accident, but that doesn't make it any easier on me. And Graham continually asking about him is killing me. I am sad he won't ever remember him but happy that he doesn't have to feel this grief and pain. Our house and yard are just not the same at all without him. We have wonderful memories of our crazy, precious little dog and know time will heal our wounds.

Allergic Reaction and Ultrasound

I made Graham his first peanut butter and jelly sandwich earlier this week, and it did not go so well. Within 2-3 minutes after eating a very small amount, he started sneezing and welts were all over his face, arms, and legs. His eyes were watering terribly, too. We jumped in the car to get some Benadryl (Graham was wailing all the way) and it worked its magic. So, a word to all of you moms out there, make sure you have Benadryl in the house before you give your child peanut butter for the first time :) He's fine and has had no more symptoms ... I guess we'll just steer clear of peanut butter ... BUMMER!!
I had my mid-way ultrasound today and all looked good with both Baby A and Baby B. Much to the dismay of many friends and family we did not find out the sexes ... you'll just have to hold out another 4ish months!! Baby A was much calmer and more cooperative for all of the pictures than Baby B. At one point I saw Baby B's foot and I asked, "Is that touching its head?" and the sonogramer informed me that it was touching Baby A's head :) Baby A measured 10 oz. and Baby B 8 oz. which is fine for now, but my doctor wants to continually watch their growth to make sure the discrepancy doesn't increase. I'm feeling lots of movement lately but I can't distinguish one from the other yet. We'll keep you posted!!

Jodie's Girls Weekend

One of my college roommates, Jodie, is getting married in May and came to Nashville for a fun girls weekend. It was so fun having her here, and we can't wait for the wedding next month :)

Happy Easter

We had a WONDERFUL Easter!!! We went to church on Saturday night and then spent pretty much ALL day on Sunday at Jackson and Margie's house eating, hanging out, and watching the Masters. What a special weekend to celebrate Jesus' resurrection and spend time with family.

One cute little boy!!

Visit to Memphis

Neither Graham nor I had left the city of Nashville in 2009, so we thought it was time and took a little trip to Memphis. We had a WONDERFUL week spending so much time with family. He loved all of his time with all 4 grandparents, and they sure do love that little boy!!

Trip to the Zoo

Graham and I went to the zoo this morning with friends Annie and Parker Haralson. The weather could not be more beautiful today ... the kind of day you want to bottle up and have all year round. Graham loved the monkeys, elephants, giraffes, meerkats, and zebras. And of course, he loved it when we stopped for lunch :) I'm trying to cherish these last months of moments with just Graham. I really have no idea what it is going to be like when there are others around to share the love ... boy, am I blessed to get to find out!! Speaking of others, I dreamed this week that I was giving birth and the first baby was a boy, but I woke up before I had the second one :)

There are giraffes back there, I promise

Who cares about animals when there is a golf cart around

I threw this last one in for a smile, and yes, that is spaghetti on the wall
