I Want To...

…remember the sleepless nights.

…embrace my greasy and root showing hair.

…enjoy the scent of her newborn head.

…smile even when I’m tired.

…rejoice in the chaos.

…hold her as much as I can.

…be thankful for diaper duty.

…focus on what really matters.

…hold her close.

…joyfully endure showerless days.

…breathe deeply.

…love fearlessly.

…revel in her innocence.

…be proud of the dark circles under my eyes.

…feel her heart beat against my chest.

…be bathed in peace.

…accept my body for the beautiful giver of life that it is.

…leave no cheek unkissed.

…have no regrets, for I know all too well that this time with her is fleeting. She will be grown and gone before I can blink my eyes. And I want to make every moment count, now while I still can.

I found this on another blog that I follow and I couldn't resist using it! It is exactly how I feel about my precious babies!!

Happy 2 months to you Charli Brooke! You are such a blessing to our family and we can't imagine life any other way!

Take Me Out to the Ballgame.....

This weekend we made a VERY quick trip to Arlington to take Gunner to his first Major League Baseball game!! He loved every minute of it despite the 110 degree weather! I'm not joking it was so hot that our shirts were wet by the time the game started!

Before we left home we searched and searched for Gunner's baseball glove and realized that it probably got stolen from our front yard. Oops! As soon as we got to the Ranger staduim, Gunner started asking for his ball and glove! I really think that he thought we were going there to PLAY baseball instead of WATCH a baseball game. We got him all fixed up with a Hamilton jersey, Ranger hat, and of course a new glove and ball! I think he was the cutest Ranger fan there but then again I'm a little biased!

Gunner loved the area where the little kids could use their tokens to hit the ball! We stayed there for quite a while before the game started! I think that is going to be a heck of a baseball player! That just thrills his daddy and Pawpaw to death!

This was our view from our seats! Eric was not too happy about the seats I got but that is what he gets for marrying someone who is cheap! I think that little dot down there is Hamilton?!?! Hey its all about the experience right?

Gunner watched the game intensely and held his glove up in the air most of the game. Yes we told him that he might could catch a ball eventhough there was no way they were coming up that high!

We had a blast and loved being able to give Gunner some one on one attention! He was pooped by the time we left and was asleep before we even got to the hotel! We were ready to come home and see our baby girl though! Thanks Pawpaw and Yaya for watching Charli for us!
