Potty Training Isn't Fun...

...and we are right smack dab in the middle of it this weekend. But so proud of Reider! He's doing pretty well and had a GREAT afternoon/evening. I just couldn't resist posting a pic of him in his big boy underwear...

My Little Valentine

"For you see, each day I love you more than yesterday but less than tomorrow..."

Ben and I decided not to exchange gifts for Valentine's since we just celebrated last weekend in Nashville... but I was most definitely spoiled by my other little Valentine! Reid was so excited every time he gave me a new card or flower - He'd say "Mommy, I gots a surprise for you!" - melt my heart!

Reid got spoiled as well with some fun Valentine's surprises (new books, DVD's, Lightening McQueen, and LOTS of candy). He was in heaven! Valentine's is ranking right up there with Halloween for our kiddo - ha! I love this pic of of Reider sorting through all his loot from his preschool party!

We hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day and got to spend time with the people that you love!

Happy Valentine's Day!


Reid has loved doing different Valentine's activities this year... we have his Valentine's party on Wednesday that he is looking so forward to!

Lately, he has loved "helping my mommy to cook"... So today we made special Valentine's Day cupcakes!

The best part, of course, is licking the bowl!

After nap time, several of his little buddies are coming over to decorate the cupcakes... should be fun and messy! Ha!

Reid's 3rd Birthday Party

On Friday morning, February 3rd, we celebrated Reid's 3rd birthday at Jump!Zone with 18 of his little friends... I think it's safe to say that everyone had a great time! This post has LOTS of pictures, so here it goes...

We are so thankful for everyone who came to celebrate with Reid! It was such a special day and we are forever grateful for our BIG boy!


‎February 5th is such a special day in our family... 3 years ago today, we were meeting our baby boy for the very first time... He was 48 hours old. Our lives were forever changed!
