One week til ho ho!

Hey Lady Bug,
You are so interested in Santa this year-you’ve already met him twice!



We visited him with barbie in tow at the vet and then we saw him while in Hilton Head.

You have been potty training and doing SO well!

Right now, you are in love with Barbie dog. However, you have your moments when you don’t want her to do something or look at you it seems.

Daddy loves when you say who the dogs belong to. Barbie is yours, Izzy (zissy) is momma’s and daddy’s is PEEEETE. We aren’t sure who Barkley belongs to, but we all love him.

You currently love TV. It is often times a battle to get you moving because of the TV.

You love working on board puzzles and you’re so good at them. You get excited when you finish them.

Next week we will be opening presents and I can’t wait to see your excitement. Hopefully hoho will bring good stuff!

Love you sweet girl.


Hello Fall!

It’s officially fall in Rocky Top. Today we painted pumpkins



You enjoyed painting your pumpkin. You also enjoyed picking out your pumpkins when we went to the pumpkin patch in Ohio.

Last week we visited family in Ohio and then Grammy and Wayno met us in Lexington and took you to their house for a couple days. Daddy and I saw UT beat Georgia and then headed up to see you!

You started potty training about a week ago and you were doing awesome. Then the travels put a stop to it. You’ll be wearing panties soon girl!

Daddy and I became foster parents this summer and currently we have our second placement. You love her so much.  Every morning you come out to the living room and when you see her you say, “awwwww cuuuuuttteee!”

You say, “thank you mommy/daddy” and “I saruu (sorry) mommy/daddy.” SO stinking cute. 

Your favorite movie is Lilo and Stitch (Ste mommy, steee). You demand a tutu when you see the girls dancing in hula skirts.

We recently added a 4th dog to our house. We got her for you and you hate her. Good decision. I think you guys will be friends soon though.


You love to wear your helmet and play on your tricycle and scooter. You love cards-sorting and stacking. You slept with flash cards last night.

Your favorite color is blue and your favorite number is 2. You started dance (tap and ballet) in August. You don’t always love it but you warm up to it after we get there.

I love you, sweet girl. You are growing up and it is so fun watching you.  I am so excited to experience life with you!

I love you!

Catch up!

We have had a great summer so far. We have gone to Hilton Head twice, swam a lot, played at the bounce house place, and had lots of fun! We have become foster parents and we had a baby for about 2 weeks. You loved having her here and wanted to hold her and help her with her bottle. You got frustrated though when you had to be quiet so she could sleep. You love to go to the splash pads.

You’re TWO!

Little Jov,
You turned 2 on Wednesday. We celebrated with Krispy Kreme for breakfast and then went to Chuck E Cheese in the afternoon. We got you a kitchen and a market stand, a bubble mower, doc mcstuffins puzzles, and a play dough set! You LOVE the kitchen and all the stuff that came with it. Later that night we drove up to Ainsley’s house as we started our journey to Ohio for Grandma Rita’s funeral.

Grandma Rita loved you. I’m so glad she got to meet you and love on you.

While we were in Ohio, you developed pink eye. You still did great while we were up there, we snuggled in bed in the early morning hours when you couldn’t sleep.  You are such a good traveler:)

I love you so much sweet girl.
