Pedicures and Flowers

So, there isn't much that can make a girl feel better than a pedicure and fresh flowers, right?! I have been wanting (and needing) a pedicure for a while. Sandle weather started a long time ago in Las Vegas. So, I took an hour or so the other day and went and got one. Boy, do my feet feel good-almost as smooth as Austin's cute little bum!

Our back yard is in full bloom right now (a little killer on the allergies) and the roses are so beautiful. Bekah wanted to give some to her teacher. So, this morning before school we went out and cut a couple stems. She was so excited to give them to her teacher that I think there might have been a little extra bounce in her step and she walked across the black top to line up :) When we got home, I decided to go cut my own bouquet. I deserve it, right?!

7 months old!

Austin has hit the 7 month mark. It is rotten how fast kids grow up. I love the snuggly newborn stage that doesn't last long enough. If I could change things, I would make that stage last about 6 months at least. Anyway, the week of Austin's 7-month "birthday", he got a tooth and decided it was time to sit up like a big kid. He has also learned that if he screams really loud, he will get attention from someone. At least he still loves his mommy the most-that is the best part of being a mom-the unconditional and constant love from a child!

He could sleep anywhere!

Rhett is a typical 3 year old boy. He goes, and goes, and goes, and goes until he crashes. He always seems to crash in funny places. I swear this boy could sleep on a cold slab of cement in the dead of winter if he was tired enough. We have caught him is some funny positions. Here a few of them. He was so tired the other day that he laid down on the stairs and couldn't even finish the bread that he had just asked for.
