This is what Miss W spent her weekend doing! She's a trooper!!

#1 Baby!!

I can't believe it's almost Thursday and I haven't posted!! It's spring break here and things have been kind of crazy!

This weekend was a great baseball weekend. We played 3 games on Sunday and won the championship! SO FUN!! Each boy had to really give their all to win each game. We even had a game winning home run! It was so awesome!!

Of course, Miss Thing was there for the whole thing. She was a trooper! I've added a video to show how she spent her time. She steals anyone's phone she can. We were out there from 12:00 till 9:00 and she was great. Thank you Lord!!

Serious Cuteness



I think this is my favorite outfit so far!! I could eat her with a spoon!!!

We're baseball-ing it this weekend. I'm almost out the door for our first game of the day. The weather is gorgeous and I'm just hoping we win so we can stay!!

Hope you're having a great weekend!!

Sleep Glorious Sleep


Believe it or not, this is how I found Wesleigh sleeping the other morning. So funny!

I can not even believe that it's already Thursday night! This week has flown by, but I have been EXHAUSTED! I am so glad the boys are home next week for spring break. I can't sleep as late as I used to, but any little bit will help. I am definitely feeling my age...OLD!

A very interesting thing has been going on in our house. Richard is now the parent that has to get up with Miss W!! After 4 kids.....Yay!!! We have found that if I go in her room when she wakes up she won't let me leave. I would be in there for an hour easy before I could get her back to sleep. But...if Richard goes in, she lays right back down and lets him leave the room, no problem. While it's annoying that Richard only has to get up for 60 seconds opposed to my hour, I am thrilled to not be the one getting up!!

I love this picture taken first thing in the morning. This was Sunday (our FREEZING cold day). Wesleigh stayed just like this ALL day long! I love all the bedheads! She's right where she wants to be...right in the middle of everything!

Is It Spring...or Winter?!?!

These are three of the cutest boys in the world! Cole is just about my 4th son. He is Braden's best friend in the world and is such a sweetie. He spent the weekend with us.


Miss Cheerleader. It was naptime, but she is always so sweet. She'll just hang out with her blankie and baby.


Giving knuckles to the boys. The boys LOVE this and do this before each game for good luck. Wesleigh loves it too and makes sure she goes to each boy multiple times.


Look how little her fist is through that fence!


Yep...she's a south Louisiana girl. She loves her jambalaya. I thought Bryce looked so funny with his long legs in this wagon. He is really helpful to me at the ballpark.


So...that was Saturday. This is Sunday:
EXTREMELY Cold, VERY windy, TOTALLY miserable!!
I didn't bring Wesleigh out in this. It was just awful. We played like it too. Lost the first game, but the good news was, we got to go home!!

Braden was so funny with that stocking cap on top of his baseball hat ;)


And...just to prove my of our dads:


Come on Spring!!!

So Important

I don't know if you followed my friend Diana on her journey to China recently, but they had an awful scare with their daughter, Sienna. Sienna had to have 7 vaccinations at one time while they were there. These vaccinations made her extremely sick and it was a very scary time for their family. We want to do everything we can to make sure this doesn't happen to another family!

There is a petition HERE that you can sign and help. Please consider signing this so we can get this rule changed! 35 more signatures are needed to get to 2000!!! Thank you!!

Highlight of the Day

DSC_3869, originally uploaded by jbdoughty.

So far, the highlight of Wesleigh's day seems to be when Braden and Cade get home from school. They are always greeted with squeals and excitment. You can imagine how disappointed they are when they get home and she's still napping.

Daddy's Little Girl

Who knew, just a few weeks ago, that this girl would be SO in love with her Daddy. Well, actually, I did. With a daddy like this, you can't help but adore him! It sure is fun to watch, though.


Daddys are always the most fun. Mommy just can't seem to make naptime this fun ;)





Wesleigh lights up everytime Richard walks in the room. She adores him...and he adores her too. After 3 boys, it sure is alot of fun to see him with his daughter.

We have noticed that she gets her feeling hurt much more when Richard is the one to fuss at her. It crushes her. She doesn't think too much about it when I am the one fussing. She also doesn't fight him with bedtime like she does me. She has had a couple of nights lately where she has been awake for a couple of hours in the middle of the night. She'll lay in her bed, but wants me sitting right by her and sometimes, I even have to be touching her. This gets very old in the middle of the night ;) If I leave the room she loses it, but we've found that if Richard leaves, she'll lay there for at least 15 minutes before she'll fuss. Sometimes she falls asleep in that timeframe, and sometimes not. Just ask me how happy I am that he was the one getting up last night!!!
Someone asked when I posted one of these a few days ago where I got this dress and hat. The dress was made by my SIL. I ♥ her!! The hat is from here.

Catch up

I'm playing a little bit of catch up. We've been having some wonderful weather and have been spending as much time outside as we can. These pics were from the weekend (before the earrings).


Again, strolling her baby. This seems to be our favorite outdoor activity...although, she has learned to hit a baseball off a tee ;)


She's pointing at her little stroller rolling down the driveway. She uses the footstep on her stroller as a little seat. It actually works really well at the ballgames. She likes to sit there and eat a snack.


Bryce got on this bike and decided to give Miss Wesleigh a ride. Al the boys got in on it, but I didn't have my camera out. Bryce has been driving his siblings around on something or another since he was 4. I wish my old pictures were digital so I could find the pic of Bryce driving Cade around in his powerwheel dunebuggy. Cade was about 9 months old and having a blast. She loved it! I think she needs her own bike.


Of course, I couldn't let the boys have all the fun. I do have to say that I was definitely the wilder ride. It is so sweet how all the boys are so conservative with her. This bike thing spins around in circles and they're scared they'll hurt her. I knew better and took her for a crazy ride! So fun.


OK, I was asked about what Wesleigh was wearing in yesterday's post. The bow is from my favorite etsy site here. The dress was a gift. It is Baby Lulu.

Have a great day!

Our Big Day

You're just going to have to bear with me. I know there are lots of pictures, but can I choose? I have a number of things to post from the weekend, but they'll have to wait. Yesterday is definitely the highlight!

I have been wanting to get Wesleigh's ears pierced for a few weeks now, but it took me a while to decide that I was actually going to go through with it. Then it took even longer to find a time where the store had 2 people who could do it at the same time, and I could have someone to go with me. I was such a wreck!

Before we went, I took Miss W out because the weather has been so incredible. She definitely put on a show for me ;) Her dress was given to me by Denise. Denise, I LOVE it!! It is so beautiful on her!!
This is the first time she has done this to me. I told her to "smile" and this is what I got!! Oh no!!! We're not really going to start doing that...are we?!?! Of course, I started dying laughing because it was quite hysterical. Don't you love the purse, stoller and baby? I'm quite sure the cell phone is in the purse ;)


I wanted to show you her beautiful bracelet. My mom got this for her birthday. Her initials are engraved on the silver plate. She is so good with it, and it is precious on her. It is TINY.


Here she goes..walking her baby. She's waving "bye-bye" to me.


And blowing me a cute is that?!?

DSC_3824's the after. You've already seen my favorite picture from this shoot, but there were SO many cute ones. I love this one, how she's so dressed up, but the dress is hiked up.



And, one of my absolute favorites. I love how she's reaching out for me. I swear, she gets more beautiful each day. She is such a joy and has added so much to our lives. How did we survive without her?

Notice Anything Different?

I have stressed over this for a week! I wanted to get her ears pierced really bad, but had a hard time getting up the nerve to do it. Richard's little sister met me there and held her while they did it. I was a big chicken! Poor Amanda, the only time she's held Wesleigh is to get her ears pierced. I was a nervous wreck, but she only cried for a minute and they are SOOOOOO cute!

How Did That Get There?!?!

There have been many adjustments in this household the past few weeks. We have only lived in this house for 2 years, so I have never had a toddler here. It has also been 7 years since I've had a 2 year old, so I am relearning lots!!
One of the most comical things I've found is the constant surprise of what you might find in very odd places. I started taking pictures of these happenings because they crack me up.
Not only are my shoes in the trash can, but the trash can is in front of the fireplace.

This is what she does when I'm trying to get ready in the mornings. Richard found this when he went to take a shower a few days ago ;)

Do you know how mad I would have been if I'd been looking for this shoe? Luckily, I was looking for potatoes!

And this would be the washing machine.

We have this post office crate sitting in the dining room from when we got back from China. It now holds the tupperware (and a bow that I spent a good long time trying to find the other day!). ...and since the tupperware is now in the postal crate, the cell phone should go in the tuperware drawer ;)

...and because I know you didn't come here to see my tupperware drawer, I leave you with this sneak peek from the weekend!

Happy Monday!!

My Girl


A few days ago, we had some great weather and were able to go out to play (and take some pics)


Braden grabbed the camera and shot a few of the two of us.



I LOVE these MJ pants! They are a little big so we have to roll the waist, but they are so cute! Wesleigh is still such a little peanut. I haven't brought her back to the doctor, but I don't really think she's gained any weight. She eats good, but is VERY active. I think she's just going to be small.

She loves her brothers...and they think she's pretty great too!


Sleepy Morning and The World's Best Snack

A few days ago, this is what I found when I walked out of the laundry room. What possessed her to get in the dog's bed (the dog she doesn't really like), I will never know. But, of course, before I got her out, I had to take a picture.

She sat on this bottom step with her blankie and her baby for quite a while. Look at her hair! It's getting long enough that she has bed head in the morning! Can you believe there's not ONE bow in this post!!

She made sure that blankie was right there by her or that she was sitting on it. So cute. At one point, she even did patty cake with her baby. Look how much the baby's hair looks like Wesleigh's ;)

Wesleigh took a long nap on this day and when she woke up, the boys were already home from school. Bryce is her snack buddy. He feeds her whatever he has...always. It's pretty funny. This day, she lucked out and got to learn how to dip an ORE0 in milk. She loves ORE0s. In fact, in China, Richard was the only one allowed to feed them to her because she loved them so much.

The eyelashes get me every time. I still just stare at them.

I'm almost caught up! This week has been rainy and yuck, so it's given me a chance to post the pics I've missed from last week. I've been trying to make the blog rounds and visit everyone who left me such sweet comments while we were in China. Wesleigh hates for me to be on the computer and when I even sit in the chair she starts fussing. This leaves me naptime to get everything done. I want to get to everyone, though, because your comments were so uplifting and sweet.
Hope you're having a great week! It's almost the weekend!! YAY!!!
