Grandaddy and Ganna live 5 minutes away... HOORAY!!!

Monday, October 28, 2013

Jamie was on call last week so on Tuesday Grandaddy picked up Nicklas and took him to my parents new house to check and see how the painters were doing.

Nicklas loves his Grandaddy so much!!  When Grandaddy is around no one else matters!!





Bless him.... He feel asleep in the car as soon as we left Grandaddy - Mommy is boring!

Wednesday was picture day at school, I really wanted Nicklas to wear his Toms in the pictures but he would rather take them off and play with them.  He had to wear his New Balances instead... they tie up so he can't get them off!

Mrs. Jaime, Nicks wonderful teacher, told me he did great for his pictures!!

Grandaddy, Ganna, Kellyn, and Brooklyn moved into their new house on Thursday.  They now live like 5 minutes away from us!!  This is the first time in 5 years we have lived less than 30 minutes from each other.  I am sooo excited!!

Thursday they all went and picked up Nicklas!!  

Look how excited these 2 are about living so close together!


Brookes new puppy Harper also went and picked up Nicklas - Nicklas was very excited!!


Kellyn made everyone Red Beans and Rice Friday night.  One of the many reasons I'm excited about them living closer.... My sister LOVES to cook and is a great cook!!!  Jamie jokes all the time about how he picked the wrong sister!!  HAHA!!

While we were sitting the table Nicklas, Brooklyn, and Granddaddy watched some TV.


On Saturday Nicklas, Kellyn, Brooklyn and I went to a pumpkin patch.  No pictures were taken because it was a failure.  We did get 2 cute pumpkins for the kids and some Raisin Cinnamon Bread that is delicious.  Other than that we drove and hour both ways for nothing!  Oh well, quality time!!

Yesterday my mom, dad, and Jamie did some more unloading at the new house while Nicklas and I hung out in our pj's all day.  We did go visit everyone for about an hour last night while they were unloading things from the last trip!

Nicklas was so tired from the weekend that he slept until 9:30 on Sunday and then took a 3 hour nap and didn't eat lunch until 3:00! 

Also wanted to document that Nicklas will give me a kiss when I ask for one!!  LOVE THIS!!  I do it all day long!! :) 

We are so happy to have my family back to close to us!!!
Have a great week!


Bronchitis

Monday, October 21, 2013

First I want to let everyone know that Nicklas is walking!!


Please excuse my face in the video... I was so excited we caught his first steps on video and that I was home to see it!

I had asked everyone to by Nicklas size 4 shoes for this birthday gifts because I assumed he would be able to wear them by the time he started walking... I was wrong... so...

I had an excuse to order these cute 3 1/2 size shoes from stride rite... Guess what... They are too small... shipping them back today... mom fail.

On Wednesday night Toy Story of Terror came on.


Nicklas loved it!!

Thursday was mine and Jamies 4 year wedding anniversary.


My sweet hubby sent me flowers... Maybe he felt jealous about spending our anniversary golfing in Charlotte! ;)

My dad had to pick Nicklas up from day care since Jamie was in Charlotte.  Nicklas has never rode facing forward in a car seat before... we are waiting about another 6 months to a year before we turn ours around.  Any how... Brookes car seat doesn't sit rear facing so Grand Daddy let Nicklas ride facing forward.


He was very confused!

Nicklas loves to stand and watch Toby and Sassy play outside



I had not been feeling well all week and on Friday it got bad.  When Jamie got home on Friday from work I went straight to bed.  I woke up Saturday morning and headed straight to the doctor.  They tested me for the flu but praise the Lord it was just bronchitis.  I got a steroid shot and am on steroids and an antibiotic.  Whenever the weather changes my asthma just goes crazy.
  
When I got home from the doctor, Jamie had lunch waiting for me so I ate and went straight to bed and my sweet husband watched Nicklas all day long.  

I woke up Sunday feeling much better but we just hung around the house because I didn't want to push it.

Aunt Kellyn give us the great idea to put a DVD player in our bonus room so Nicklas could have his own TV area.


Thank goodness for Aunt KK, He loved watching Micky Mouse in is own area!


And he loved cuddling with Mommy watching it far away!!

Have a great week everyone!

Zoo and 13 Months

Monday, October 14, 2013


On Friday Nicklas and I went to the zoo with Kellyn, Brooklyn, Rebecca and Chase.






When we got to the elephants Nicklas kept saying... Whoa!  He was so into everything.  Afterwards he slept from 1:00 - 4:30!
We all had a great time!

Last night we had spaghetti for dinner... Poppy showed Nicklas how to use a spoon!





Nicklas also turned 13 months yesterday.

At 13 months Nicklas is:

Wearing 18 months clothes.
Eating anything and everything.
Takes 3 sippies of milk a day.
Only drinks milk and water.
Standing on his own for a few seconds.
Likes to rub mine or Jamies eyelashes when he is falling asleep.
Takes 2 naps a day.
Has 12 teeth.
Says... Mommy, Daddy, Hey, Bye, Uh Oh, Dog, Ruff, Whoa, Bite.
Waves Hey and Bye.
When we are eating dinner he will pick up 2 pieces of whatever he is eating and give them to Sassy and Toby.
Blows kisses.
When I laugh he will mock me!
Will give me a kiss when I ask for it 60% of the time.
Likes to 'jump' on the bed!
When we brush his teeth he now goes 'AHHHHH' and holds
his mouth open!
He has mastered the 'fake' cry!

Nicklas is such a fun kid with a wonderful personality.  I am blessed to be his mommy!



2 weekend catch up!

Monday, October 7, 2013

Last weekend we did some chores around the house.

Nicklas loves helping daddy.

Nicklas and I had a fun lunch together.

Nicklas had a SCARY bug bite.


Jamie took him to the doctor for this.  It was an infected mosquito bite.

Nicklas climbed some stuff.


On Friday Jamie and I took Nicklas to his first dental appointment.  I know its not 'necessary' yet but I am OCD AND a dental assistant who has seem some SCARY things so we took him!





He did AWESOME!!  and his teeth look great!  

After the dentist Nicklas had his very first meal from Chick Fil A!  He loved it!!

Then we tagged along with some sweet friends, Matt and Aundrea, to a apple orchard.










We had a great time!

We stopped by to visit Grammie and Poppy after that.



Nicklas played kick ball with Poppy.

On Saturday we went to Fountain Inn to go to Aunt Het Festival.

It was HOT!






Nannan, Pupol, and Brooklyn wore Nicklas out!!

Have a great week.
