Weekend at GG's & Pop Pete's

The weekend before last, Clay headed off to Bristol for the races. So, Mitchell and I decided to take our very first road trip together (by ourselves) down to the Delta. My mom and Pete just finished moving into their new house, so we figured we would check it out and visit Clarksdale since Mitchell has yet to make it there. Well, I must say, I don't think we will be "roadtripping" it alone again anytime soon. Mitchell screamed from about Tunica to Clarksdale (even with a stop off at Uncle James' in Lula). It made me a nervous wreck because it was dark and I could not pull over. Aside from that one little thing, we had the best time down in MS. The McCarras and Abrahams decided to travel to the Delta too! This is the first time we have all been together since having the little ones. We christened mom's house by having a cookout with everyone. As you can tell we had a great time and will have to do it again very soon!

My 1st night away from Mitchell

This weekend marked the 1st time I've been away overnight from my little munchkin. Let me tell you, it was more difficult that I thought it would be! Clay and I flew to Vegas to check things out and we left little bit at home with Granna. I enjoyed my sleep over the weekend, BUT I missed the little booger terribly. When we finally got home on Sunday, Mitchell had more hair and was talking more! It's amazing how much they grow in such a short period of time!

As everyone was leaving brunch....

I noticed that Clay and Mitchell had disappeared. This is what I found-the two of them engrossed in the final minutes of the SEC Basketball Championship Game......

I want to thank Aunt Kendall & Uncle Jmack for keeping the little tike yesterday afternoon while Clay and I went to a visitation. Aunt K-sorry that his diaper did not hold up very well after we dropped him off and that you had to change his clothes...not to mention your own!

If the pictures above are any indication of what you guys will look like as parents, I would say y'all are going to be great! Thanks again!

Today marked a very special day in our family. Mitchell was baptized. The ceremony was short and sweet...however, Mitchell and the other little boy being baptized decided that they could not be very quiet for that long. Once again, Clay swears he wasn't comfortable because of the frilly dress I had on him. But, he didn't seem to mind the gown until I got ready to take it off of him later that afternoon! I have posted one pic from the day and more will come. Thanks to all of our family and friends for sharing in this very special time.

1st Crawfish Boil

On Saturday, a group of us went over to the Steens to enjoy some crawfish. I must say that they were fantastic! I had not had any crawfish in well over a year and partaking in a crawfish boil was a long time coming! We snapped a few pics throughout the day to capture Mitchell's 1st crawfish boil. As you can see, Clay and I barely had to do anything with him throughout the afternoon and that night. As usual, the boys and girls segregated from each other as the afternoon turned into evening. Us girls aren't quite sure how to compete with Playstation 3?!?

Well, we haven't been in daycare but a week and have already caught a cold!! Mitchell is having a hard time breathing comfortably at night when we put him down to sleep. So, I took him to the doctor yesterday. The only thing I got out of the doctor's visit was that he now weighs 14.4 lbs! The doctor told me that I was going to have to weather through it since he did not have an ear infection, sore throat or fever. I guess I should not blame it on daycare--especially since the weather has been so fickle here lately....
