Winner and Wonderful Weather

*** Don't forget to scroll down one post to enter the Longaberger giveaway!

The winner of the Thirty One Gifts giveaway is #127, Sarah Robbins.  Congratulations!  Email me (row35401 at yahoo dot com) and I will get your info to Dana.  Thank you to everyone who entered!

I forgot to tell y'all that I got the yellow Clarisonic for Valentine's Day!!! I'm so excited!  I love it!  :)  Cody totally surprised me with it too.  He had me convinced that he had forgotten about V-day.  He gave it to me Sunday night because he couldn't wait any longer.  ;) 

On Thursday we enjoyed the beautiful 70 degree weather.  When Cody got home from work we walked to the park behind our house.  This was Westin's first wagon ride outside.  I pull him through our kitchen and living room but we haven't been able to go outside until Thursday.  He LOVED it!

Every time I would turn around to look at him, he would smile so big!  I think he would have been happy to ride in it for hours.




How is he old enough to be "playing" at a park?!  I'm sure you are sick of hearing me say it but I just canNOT believe he will be one in two weeks!  Where did the time go?  I mailed his party invitations yesterday and I actually teared up walking to the mailbox!!  I'm crazy!  I absolutely love the stage he is in and I love watching him grown and learn new things daily but it truly feels like just yesterday that he was a tiny 5 pound 14 ounce baby.  Okay, I have to quit talking about it!  Haha  I hope y'all have a fabulous weekend! 



Thank you!

I love the pictures. His sweet smile just warms my heart.

Don't ever stop asking how did he grow up so fast. I remember feeling that way with my first born and probably with his sisters too. The 2nd and 3rd babies first years go by even faster. My son turns 11 soon and honestly it feels like yesterday that he was going on his first wagon ride with a huge smile on his face. I think the hardest part of mommyhood is watching them grow up so fast...such a blessing but emotional at times. Enjoy celebrating his first year...every stage is just so much fun and wonderful.

Yay for getting the clarisonic. How do you like it so far?

I know time is flyiing by!! Sounds like a fun day with the family! It reminds me that we need to get a wagon for the summer!! So how did the face thingie (sorry forgot the name) work? Did ya love it?? So far everyone loves it...so I still deciding if I wanna try it or not! Have a great weekend too!!!

Those are some great pictures of him at the park! What a cutie pie!

Alex and Jill said...

All of those pics are so good!! You know I totally understand how you feel. I tear up with just about every new thing Amelia does and her 1st birthday about sent me over the edge. LOL I had forgotten that Westin was such a tiny baby too!

Rebekah said...

Hello! I wanted to let you know that I have awarded you the “Versatile Blogger” Award as well as the “Stylish Blogger” Award. You can find both, as well as the instructions at my page.
I have followed your blog for a while and love reading about your decorating ideas as well as your posts about Westin. We were both expecting baby boys at the same time so it was fun to read your posts last year before he arrived while I was waiting to meet my son too :)

I remember when you were waiting for him to be born! My baby girl turns one month old this week, and I agree- you blink and the time is gone!
