Are you serious, Leah?

Yes, I'm serious.... I know I got all sappy on you guys with the last post, but I just wanted to let you know that I can still throw down like a 24 year old.... so we pulled out the ol' beer bong!! Last week Tiffany came in town from LA, and Annette, her and I went out! What a blast!! We even got our 4th meal at Taco Bell on the way home. Delicious!!

I just couldn't imagine life without him...

Am I allowed to post this... it was way to hard not to... wouldn't you?... or am I going to be a bad mom for posting this... but look at those rolls... and those butt cheeks.... will he be mad at me one day.... oh who cares- he's precious!!!What about this... have I already posted this one... he's just so cute in this pic.. it's my favorite... I think I'm obsessed.
This one is precious too... he found his feet last week... he likes to put them in his mouth... he'll do anything to hold them... it's adorable...

Even when LJ is confused, he's a doll!! He always makes this face... what a cutie.... I just love this pic!!

I would post more, but this blog system only lets me post 5 per blog... I'd post all 500 if I could. He just makes life grand, he makes every day special, he makes life so much better, he's perfect!

Who would have thought a few years ago I would be blogging about my first baby?? Not me!! He was a surprise, but a wonderful surprise. He's such a blessing... making every day special to us. We're so lucky to have him and when parents say they would do absolutely anything in the world for their kids... trust them... because they absolutely mean it... no questions asked.
God has sure blessed us. I couldn't be happier.

It's Daddy's 28th birthday!!!!

Happy 28th Birthday Daddy!!
LJ and I are so blessed to have such an amazing man in our lives. He comes home every day from the financial world with so much energy to play with us. We're so lucky to have him! It's hard to believe 5 months ago, LJ was this small. He's now eating 2-3 meals of baby food a day and about 4-6 bottles of breastmilk. I think sitting up may be a bit delayed since he's so big, and especially very top heavy. What a precious baby- he sure is a peach!

I have the best girlfriends in the world!!

I have the best girlfriends in the world!! I have been so blessed to have such good friends, who are always including me in their plans even though I'm the little ol' mama from the southside. Last week I went to Adobo, a tequila bar downtown, with some of my pledge sisters. It was a blast!! In the picture below is Molly Paschal, Carrie Clevenger, and Emmalee Frey, who just got engaged-- what what!! Side note: one of our pledge sisters will be on the next Bachelor. Be looking for her-- Molly M!!!

I've also been able to stay in pretty good touch with my girlfriends from high school. With the occasional texts, random get togethers, and short phone calls, we manage to keep up with each other. I'm planning on going to lunch with Marcy Mayhew this week- she has a 4 year old boy, so she's gives me plenty of advice.

Lastly, I get to meet the girls I used to work with for lunch about every other week. They have babies around the same age as LJ. Hanging out with other moms has been so helpful. All of my friends have truly made me the person I am today. It's so nice to have other girls to lean on when things get tough... it's especially nice to go to lunch with them for the occasional gossip session- hehe!! Sloane and LJ are still getting used to each other. Although Sloane is 3 1/2 months older than LJ, LJ has her beat with his weight. HE IS A CHUNK!!! We took family pictures yesterday at Valle Vista Golf Course. We had so much fun with the babes. They did pretty well. We're all so lucky to have each other and live so close. I can't wait for the babes to grow up together!

5 months old today!!!

Happy birthday to LJ!!We can't believe he's already 5 months old. It's so crazy how time flies. Life seems to be treating us well. Big Joey has been dealing with the ups and downs of the market at work, I have a working interview tomorrow for a one day gig during the week, and we still manage to find time to go out for a few drinks every couple of weeks. It's just too bad I don't get out more-- maybe I wouldn't try to make up for it all in one night- hahah!!
Little man is laughing all the time. It's hilarious!! He still loves his jumperoo, and he especially loves rolling over. He had croup last week, so that was tough on the whole fam- but he's all better now... back to being an eating machine. He weighed 21 1/2 lbs at the Doc's office last week. Dr. Kidd likes to make that comment, "He still hasn't missed a meal, has he??" You know that's a big baby when a 2 year old got weighed immediately following him at
25 lbs... Geeze!!!

My mom gets to watch him on Fridays. LJ loves both of his Grandma's houses!!!
