tea time.

i'm a little teapot,
short and stout.
here is my handle,
here is my spout.
when i get all steamed up
here me shout.
tip me over and pour me out.
 tea, tea, tea for two.
would you like to pour?
tip the pot into the cup
and then you'll have some more!
time to share a pot of tea,
some for you,
some for me.
let's take turns and always say
please and thank you.

it is no secret that i am a terrible pregnant person.
i get sick, like really sick.
i'm pretty demanding and pretty much just a joy to be around. 
andy has been beyond amazing while caring to my
 every want and need, we seriously 
wouldn't even know what to do without him.
goodness i love him so much!
and this little angel of a baby doll. . . don't get me started!
 i am loving this downtime with just me and my girl.
we love sonic ice, stickers,
 running around in diapers 
and swimming 'til our hearts content.
(sidenote: aren't june's nike sandals hysterical? 
my mom found them for her and i'm so glad she did.  
they have made the perfect backyard, water, play shoes ever. 
go get your girl some!)
i'm so thankful for the sweet and patient hearts
 that both junie and andy have.
we can't wait for this new little life to get here
 so we can have some different kind of downtime.
come on november!

you're gonna miss this.

andy is going to read this and think this is a total joke. 
when june was tiny and he would come home for lunch
 or at the end of the day and sometimes things just hadn't really
 jived that day; naps didn't go as i thought they should have
 or i felt like all i did that day was nurse june
 or she had blown out her diaper all over her carseat
 for the sixth day in a row. . . 
pretty much all of the new mom stuff that i know with 
this next angel i'll be better prepared for.
 he would jokingly sing the chorus of this song to
 me and i would smile or maybe even punch him in the arm.
i love country music but we don't really listen to a whole lot of trace adkins.
 it is major cheeseball,
but it's so true and it's definitely our little inside joke.
it's rare that she lets me rock her to sleep, much against my own desire, 
i would cuddle that baby girl all day long if she'd ever sit still enough for it. 
but on this day she did and
that song played through my head the whole time.
i smiled and cried at all at the same time because
 it's such a random soundtrack for our life but it's so true.
 as i laid her down in her crib
i had to snap this picture.
i am going to miss her being tiny so much.
she is growing so fast.
she is so much fun and just the sweetest,
 most precious little girl that ever was.
she runs through the house saying 'mommy, mommy, mommy'. 
she wants me to 'hold you mommy' at every meal.
we have so much fun together everyday.
she tells me all about the things we do together
 and oh! how i hope she never forgets our memories.
i love being your mommy junebug.
i am the worst facebook member that ever was.
it seems though that whenever i do get on there i find the best stuff.
my sister in law posted this video a while back and
 it just seems so fitting to share with y'all on this very special mother's day.
it made me cry for my own mom and how endlessly
she loves us and how selfless she is and just how i don't know what i would do without her.
i hope i am half the mom to june as she has been to me.
love you mom!
happy mother's day!

june is quite the ham.
you would never know this if you saw her out and about but get
 that girl where she is comfortable and
 boy howdy someone better cue the curtain.
love this little character of ours!

mommy fail.

thomas the train was in our neck of the woods a while back. 
my friend abbie took her luke one day so
 when andy decided to take a few days 
off i just knew it would be the perfect outing for us!
june's crazy for trains.
unfortunately, i didn't know how big of a shindig this
 was and was just certain that we could show
 up and just get tickets then and there.
boy was i wrong!
it was quite the event that we now will be better
 prepared for next year when hopefully thomas comes back.
however, i think it's safe to say june still had a pretty fun time!
sweet angel girl.

the greatest of these is love.

we have had lots of good trips to abilene this spring. 
unfortunately, during my blogging hiatus many of them have gone un-noted.
these pictures pretty much sum it up for the three of these lovebirds.
i love looking at them and hope you will too!
what memories are made of. . .
 these next few are to commemorate junie's
 favorite past times at bapa and tooties house. . .
 climbing in and out of the toy trunk,
 sitting in the tree,
 riding in the golfcart and feeding the ducks,
 and running around the putting green "playing" golf with bapa.
his dreams are coming true! :)
love this extremely sweet life the Lord has blessed me with living.
my cup truly runneth over.

hoppy easter!

who doesn't love easter!
this year we kicked off our easter weekend back home 
with my parents and waited patiently for andy to 
get off work and meet us at the ranch 
where we finished our easter celebration.
i'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
it was a great weekend centered around celebrating our RISEN Lord, 
loving on family and kissing all over our little bunny june.
the three most vital things in life.
hope you enjoy the recap.
