Megow Girls Visit

Thursday, September 30, 2010

Isn't it a blessing when someone does you a favor and you can pay them one back? The day after Crissy watched Kye for us she had her 6 week post pardum appointment so I watched the girls for her. It was a super fun time and of course I had to take some pics for Crissy :) Neela was sooo sleepy, they had an early morning I LOVE having kids over to play as it's a great opportunity for Kye to practice his sharing skills can you tell they are all at ages where they prefer to play on their own? PS: I tried to be a "cool mom" and let the room be a disaster toy zone but it only lasted about 10 min then I felt like I was gonna have a panic attack Kye really bonded with Stevie during this playdate playing cars was a big hit I feel ya Stevie...I don't get basketball either ;) sorta playing together Neela was so sleepy that she went down a little bit early for a nap. While she slept, Kye and Stevie went on their first "date!" We used Kye's little table and th

Play Day at the Megows

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

It's such a blessing to have good friends who you can count on when you're in a bind and need someone to watch your kid ;) Of course, Mrs. Charlotte is wonderful about keeping Kye for us, but they live about 25 min away which is a pain depending on where we need to be. When we went to make our first round of house choices, Crissy said she didn't mind keeping Kye and I was so thankful! Now that they live in Hahira they are only about 10 min away :) She took some pictures of all the kids playing together and I couldn't help but steal them. Enjoy! Stevie, Kye, Neela and Titus (isn't Kye's hand on Neela's leg adorable ?) Kye: The Elton John wanna be ha! he will be SUCH a sweet big brother ...at least most of the time ;) When we got there to pick him up he was having a BLAST in their ball pit...I think I need to let Santa know about that! Kye has SO much fun with the Megow clan! This picture cracks me up! Crissy is such a fun, cool mom to always do such neat

First Round of House Choices

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

FINALLY we're getting started on our HOUSE! I feel like there is so much other stuff going on right now that I'm not really able to be as excited as I should be about building. I mean we may only be doing this ONCE so it's a pretty big deal!!! I realized that I never posted the finalized house plans so here they are (you can click on them to make them bigger) Whenever I ask you guys for opinions or show you new things we're doing to it, I'll be sure to link back to this post so you can remember what the finished house will be! front then back downstairs upstairs Our builder had us go make our first round of choices on things. I was kinda surprised that we picked out windows and doors first. But I guess he had to have enough time to order them? Whatever the reason, it was just fun to do it! I knew going into all of this that I CANNOT even allow myself to LOOK beyond things that are in our budget. The number one question we ask when looking at stuff: "is thi

18 Month Pediatrician Visit

Monday, September 27, 2010

Two weeks ago (I know, I've been too busy living life to actually sit down and blog about it!) we had Kye's 18 month pediatrician visit. It was a pretty exciting one because it's the last of the 3-6 month well-visits and from 24 months on they'll only need to see him yearly for a check-up! Yay! I didn't even realize we had the appointment until late that Sunday night after I'd driven home from my lack-of-sleep weekend in Atlanta. Needless to say, I did NOT have any type of question list prepared. We just kinda winged it like most non-anal parents probably do on the reg! When we got there we had hardly any wait which was WONDERFUL (mental note: make all of Kye's appointments at 9:45 on a Monday morning). They took his stats and they were: 27.5lb (70th percentile), 33 3/4 inches tall (85th percentile), and 19 inches head circumference (75th percentile). We (coughZACHcough) actually had them measure his length twice because the first time he was only 32 in

It's official! As of this morning at about 8:30 our little family is homeless and I've never been more thrilled :) We had the closing to officially switch over our house into my mom's name ! I'm BEYOND thrilled for her to get to move up here and SO happy for us all that everything has worked out so perfectly (God's plan for sure!). We are heading out of town tomorrow for a LONG trip, well many mini trips actually (we're going up to Big Canoe, GA then I'm going to Danielle's for more wedding fun this weekend, back to Big Canoe for the week, meeting Mrs. Charlotte in Atlanta with Kye on the 1st, going to Danielle's wedding that weekend then flying out to Jamaica after the wedding..WHEW I'm exhausted just writing it...imagine how stressful packing has been!) and when we get back Mom will already be here!!! She starts her Aflac training then we are ALL going to Melbourne to move her here that weekend! I'll do my best to blog while I'm away..

Quality time with a good friend

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

I have known Rachael for a really long time...but I don't really know how long?!?! Growing up she actually lived right across from my neighborhood so I know we went to the same school all the way through, but did we ever even have any classes together? The only ones I can think of were in high school! I don't really know how it happened but when I was pregnant I stumbled across her blog (I must have been Facebook stalking?!?!). I was thrilled that she kept so many details of her pregnancy with Macy and parenting tips and struggles on her site and I became an instant-fan. She was SO helpful throughout my whole pregnancy and inspired me to start the very blog you're reading now. (So all of you who just couldn't imagine life without this thing...thank her!). Our friendship is proof that the online world is LEGIT. We REALLY do know each other. We REALLY are friends. Yes, it's ALL online. But that doesn't make it any less real . A couple weekends ago when I

Wedding Shower for Danielle #2!

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

After the fun family shower that morning and staying up so late with Casey the night before I was EXHAUSTED but still pumped for the couple's shower for Danielle and Jonathan that night. Between showers, Danielle, Chelsi, and I just hung out and caught up which was nice. I mean on a girls weekend the more talking the better right?!?! before heading to the shower couldn't decide which I liked better so you get both ;) this is a GREAT pic of you two!!! The shower was at Chelsea's house (a different Chelsea than the one pictured above but she's also a bridesmaid!). I'd actually met her and Laura (who co-hosted) back in April when I visited Danielle's church and I liked them both right off the bat. Chelsea is a mom of three (you cannot tell by looking at her though...she has a 3 year old and twins who are a couple months younger than Kye!) so I knew we'd connect right away. She also has an ADORABLE husband (who has a hunting habit I'm no
