Happy 2 Month's Little Landry!

It is so funny to think that just two months ago, we were all anticipating this little angel's arrival! She is even more precious and perfect than anyone could have imagined:) My sister has done an incredible job during her first 2 months of being a Mommy...Landry is one lucky little lady to have such a wonderful Mommy. I am so impressed with how strong and dedicated my sister has been through the many changes and transitions that a new baby can bring and I hope that come January, I will be able to do just the same. Scooter is a wonderful Dad, who is already completely wrapped around her itty, bitty finger! I am really happy that he could be the father to my niece...again, she is very blessed to have another wonderful parent.
Jason and I absolutely love this little girl and have enjoyed getting to know her and have loved having the time to bond with her. Landry is the first baby that Jason has really been around, so she is being a great little teacher to him. I am so glad she is here to try and help him prepare for her little cousin that will be here in January.
Little Landry...we love you so much and are so happy that you here on this Earth for all of us to love:)

Cutest Things Ever

So, I have always loved little kid plates and cups, etc. Don't ask me why, but they were always so fun as a child and I always loved eating with silver Big Bird fork and spoon and out of my Cookie Monster bowl:) Well, after I found out I was expecting I was in Old Time Pottery and saw the cutest little plates for children! Here's Baby Fill's first gift that Mommy bought:
We were in Auburn this weekend and I had to buy these precious little socks! War Eagle! (the photo is sideways, but oh well!)

Sweet Landry :)

This is probably my favorite picture so far!! Just look at those rolls! She is such a big girl already! Can't believe that she is sitting up so well already to not even be 2 months old yet! She is such a funny and sweet little girl. She definitely has her Mommy and Aunt Emmy's (especially me) spunk in her...she is quite opinionated and head strong already!! I sure do love my Landry girl :)

Blue or Pink?


What will Baby Fill be?...a Boy or Girl? Pretty much everyone has voted that Baby Fill is a little girl. I have not really been certain either way, but I have been more apt to look at girl items. At this point, if Baby Fill is a girl she has a nursery already planned out in my head. We have had 2 people say that it is a boy...one of those two people is a very sweet lady that works with my sister. She has a 100% accurate prediction record over her years and did I mention she predicted my little niece?? So that throws me off a little!

I am the most picky person when it comes to clothes and decor and because of this: I can not find any bedding for a boy that I am in love with. I have looked all over my favorite sites: Layla Grace , Baby Box , Rosenberry Rooms , and a few others, but have not fallen in love with anything. But I have a little more time;) FYI: if you are not familiar with my favorite sites, you must get acquainted!

We should find out if Baby Fill is a girl or boy on August 25th! We can't wait!

Yummy!

In my previous post I talked about great and yummy food that are perfect for the 4th...well we had 2 out of the 3: hot-dogs and homemade ice-cream! Plus some delicious and oh so bad for you peach dump cake!

Our Vanilla Ice-Cream made with my Meme's special Vanilla :)
It tasted just like hers! :)
Peach Dump Cake....so sweet, but so good!

All you need for the peach dump cake is 3 regular sized cans of peaches. I use 1 can of peaches in Heavy Syrup and 2 cans of peaches in Light Syrup (1 drained of liquid). Dump the peaches in a 9x13 baking dish, cover with (dry) plain yellow cake mix, dot with small squares of (stick) butter all along the top, and lastly sprinkle with a little cinnamon. Bake at 350 for 30 min. It should look the picture above when it is ready! * TIP:do not use light butter, it just does not work like it should.

Finished Products :)

Happy 4th of July!

There is nothing that you reminds you of summer and the 4th more than:

Hotdogs!


Watermelon!



&

Homemade Icecream!

Those are three of my favorite things! My Meme made the best homemade icecream! I actually do not really like icecream unless it is homemade...and don't tell me to buy Blue Bell...it is not the same!

We did have plans for this holiday, but sadly they did not work out. We were suppose to go to Michigan for a wedding for one of Jason's good friends (Congratulations Todd and Kortne! Wish we could have been there for your big day!) and were going to spend a little time with Mom and Dad Fill at the cottage. But everything happens for a reason I suppose.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe holiday! Too bad the oil (BP) has ruined our beaches...it truely has taken so much away from all of the people that live there and those that do not, but who had spent many summers and weekends on those beautiful beaches of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Hopefully a resolution is in the near future. Lets pray for all of those who have been adversely effected by this catastrophe.

Love,

Jason & Emily
