Mums the Word!!!

When we were at the Walmart yesterday, Merritt helped me pick out this little mum. They don't have the big ones out yet, but I thought we could go ahead and get started on our fall decor with this one! I had to hold it the entire time we were in the store, because he didn't want me to put it in the buggy with him for fear of bugs being on it! ha! We decided to plant it tonight and he was no longer worried about the bugs?!? It turned out super cute in my boot planter :)







Then he played for a couple of hours and looked like he had gone swimming when it was time to go inside!! We are ready for fall and cooler weather, but not for winter and snow!! Stay tuned for more fall decor! After all, August is pretty much the same as Autumn!!

Rainy Afternoon!

We had a fun/busy morning playing at our friends house, then going Walmart...and of course stayed too long! This led Merritt to take a longer than usual nap, and when he woke up it was raining! Boo! This craft was shared on our MOPS facebook page, so I thought it was the perfect way to spend the afternoon inside! Very fun! :) While he very good at counting to 10, he is not great with his colors...so anything we can do to learn them better is a winner!

McCoy Everett 3 months!


3 Months old and sweet as can be!!

He has finally turned the corner of having to be held all the time, Hallelujah!!  He loves to lay under his activity mat the most, but enjoys his bumbo seat and swing as well!

He is now sleeping in his crib for naps and bedtime, un-swaddled and in a sleep sack! He doesn't even wake up at night crying for Wubby...I remember Merritt doing this, so it is a welcomed change! He takes a morning nap for an hour or two, times vary and still goes down for an afternoon nap from around 1:00pm to 4:00pm. His bedtime and eating schedule have stayed the same.

He is wearing 3 month, 3-6 month, and 6-9 month clothes depending on the brand and has moved up to size 2 diapers.

Tummy time is still not his fave, but he continues to be very strong and holds his head up really well!

He is starting to like Merritt more and more and usually smiles and laughs at him! He loves to laugh, smile, and coo at The Farmer and I too!

At his 2 month appointment on the 28th, he weighed 14.5 pounds and was 23.5 inches! Almost the same as Merritt! Mommy's big boys :)

We love you to the moon and back Coy-boy!!

and they still look so much alike!!

Ice Chalk!!

I have been wanting to make this ice chalk all summer and finally got around to it today!! It is so easy and super fun!! Here is the link: http://www.readingconfetti.com/2013/05/ice-chalk.html I have also seen chalk paint, which is the exact same thing, just not frozen.

helping me mix it up!!

since he usually tastes everything he helps me with, he thought this should be no exception! Needless to say there was only one lick!! haha! 


adding the food coloring

chilling in the freezer!

such pretty colors!

we broke them all out on the sidewalk and he had a blast (and so did I!!)

McCoy, on the other hand, was not impressed!! :)


"I have the best Mommy EVAR!!" tehehe :)


they melted into a beautiful rainbow!!
