Hello Friends and Family!

We have a crazy week ahead of us.  I leave for Texas Friday morning for a wedding I have been planning for the last year.  This is the first one that I designed completely (well except for my own).  I am so excited to take part in Araceli and Adolfos wedding!  And nervous (I want everything to be perfect), AND I have to leave my little Gibson for the first time.  No bueno.  Gibson will be four months old tomorrow (seriously?!?) and I know that Chris will do great with both boys, but I just do not want to leave Gibson.  I considered taking him, but I'm going to be working so much that I wouldn't really get to be with him anyway.  Plus, I'm running the events and decorating the reception, so I really need to concentrate on what I need to be doing.  When Gibson is near all I think about is his cute little chubby legs.  I can not promise there won't be any tears on the plane. 

Thankfully I am not going to have much time to think of it, because I have an insane amount of work to get done this week.  I've got to get everything ready for the boys...bottles, clothes, meals ect. ect., everything ready for the wedding & pack myself.  The boys and I are also involved in MOPS (mother's of pre-schoolers) and our last meeting is this week.  That and all my regular stay at home jobs and I'll be lucky to sleep this week. 

The only time I've spent three whole days away from Christian was when he was three months old and I had to rush to Colorado to be with Jason after his accident.  Speaking of, the anniversary of that horrible event is coming up next week, so keep me in your prayers (along with the whole Barnes family), that is always a rough week. 

The last few weeks have been great here at home.  As you will see in the wonderful pictures below.  We have gone to the beach, spent lots of time outside, taken up running, and even fully potty trained Christian.  He practically did it himself! Gotta love that kid.  Just. So. Easy.  Gibson please take note. :)

Once I get back from the wedding we have a down week, then I have jury duty (!) and then we pretty much leave for Colorado! I'll be sure to post pictures of all the fun along the way.

Love, Nicole

Gibson says hello! We had a rare cold(ish) day here in Georgia so he was wearing some comfy sweats.

Here's a sneak peek of my birdcage centerpieces for the wedding!

Christian giving Daddy hugs after he gets home from work.

Cowboy Christian got to take a trip to the barn and ride a pony. He talked about horses for the whole week after.

Christian riding Freddy. 

Christian was the youngest rider, with the largest head :) He got a  bigger helmet from Miss Leslie to accommodate his noggin :)

He took riding Freddy seriously, and even learned how to make him stop.

He just fed Glitter, but couldn't slow down long enough for me to get a good (focused) shot.

Gibson was not thrilled that C was trying to pick him up.

Much happier now.  How cute are these boys?

Christian is very in to taking pictures these days. He grabbed my phone and said, "Momma say cheese!"

Here are the boys "pretending" to sleep. Gibson was not playing along.  Notice Christian and his super hero cape :)

My three boys

We headed to the beach Saturday to see the sea turtles be released. We missed it, but still had a great time. 

Tybee Island, GA

Gibson slept the entire time.  We consider that a successful beach trip.

Look at Christians adorable wetsuit! Grandma Baksa sent one for both boys and they fit perfectly!Christian would not take his off. 

Really loved the water.

We are teething like crazy.  It is NOT FUN.

Trying to get some teething relief. 

Loved this outfit on Christian.  Just as cute on Gibson.
