9 Months & Counting

Sailor bug is 9 months old today. I can't believe it. I've had a very emotional past couple of days. Haven's 1st birthday party was today as well. My girls are growing up!! I helped Jenn decorate last night for her party today and the whole time my heart just ached. I couldn't believe Haven's birthday party was already here. Haven is like my second daughter!! It just FREAKS ME OUT that I'm this emotional right now!! I'm am just going to be a WRECK when I have Sailor's party!! I'm am going to need a lot of prayer!!! As most of you probably know from reading my stories in the past... I don't want my baby girl to grow up!!! I love baby-ing her!! If she could just stay this small for a couple of years it would be SUPER!!! But I know it's better than the alternative!! So I'm just trying to take EVERY MOMENT in!!!

Sailor fell asleep on our way to Haven's party today. She slept for about 30 mins after we got there, and then woke up. I knew she was still tired but there was just too much going on. She was okay for just a little while then she started getting really fussy so I made her a bottle. By that time she was screaming at the top of her lungs and there was nothing that Cameron or I could do. Sailor has never cried like this before and no matter what we did she wouldn't calm down. I didn't know what to do. I tried to take her into other rooms but they were all filled with people. Unfortunately we had to leave and take her home. She didn't calm down until I sat on our couch with her and took her clothes off. After that she was fine. There were like 50 people in the house at Haven's party and it was very noisy... so we think that she just got overwhelmed with all the people being around her. I was so sad to see her like that though. She's never cried like that before!!! It was everything I could do to not cry myself while we where rounding up all her things. My heart sank when I had to tell Jennifer that we were going home. I wouldn't get to see Haven tear into her birthday cake or open any of her presents :( But once we got home I was glad that Sailor felt better. I hope that she doesn't get that freaked out at her own birthday party.

To give you a happy ending.... Sailor and I went back over to see Jenn and Haven tonight once everyone left the party. They played together and I got to see all the FUN presents that were opened earlier. The best part was getting to see Haven walk around in the squeaker shoes I got her. SHE LOVED THEM!!! Every time she took a step her little shoes would squeak!!

I'm not sure how much Sailor weighs.... she has a doctor's appt. on Monday. I'm hoping that she will weigh atleast 17 lbs because if she can gain a pound a month from here until her birthday then she can go in a forward facing carseat when she turns one!!! WOOHOO!!! She still is not eating any type of food other than pureed baby food. If you could be in prayer about that we would appreciate it!! I don't feel like she will ever be able to eat anything solid!! She just has the worst gag reflex... and then she throws up!!! And she still doesn't hold her bottle herself (but I secretly like that because I still get to baby her!!) She says Mama, Dada, Baba, Nanana, and her newest letter... T!! She makes the Ta sound!! You go Sailor Bug!! lol She has 4 teeth and one on the way. I love this baby girl. I know I say I don't want her to grow up but I love her more and more each and every day. Her little personality is just so much fun. God has poured out the BIGGEST blessing on Cameron and I!!! Thank you Jesus for this baby girl.

Here are some pics of Sailor today:

4 Chompers

Sailor bug cut her 4th tooth yesterday!!! She's now a dangerous human being!!! She'll strike without any warning...... She likes her pray to be very relaxed, not suspicious, just chillin' out........ then BAM!! She thinks your fingers are french fries!!! But don't pull them out.... you'll only make matters worse!!!

Exciting News!!

So I have actually gone a half of a month without posting ANYTHING!!! Sorry about that!! We have been CrAzY busy lately!! My friends and I are in the process of starting a business together.... for babies!! It's so exciting. We're calling it Baby Britches and Custom Stitches. We want to make some clothing, tutus, tote bags, jewelry, bows, shoes.....ect. We just bought our embroidery machine (IT"S SUPER COOL!!!). Our website is, but we don't have anything on it yet, but you can look for stuff later this fall..... if you have any ideas or requests you can email us at!!!

Anyway, last saturday(08/04) we went to my Aunt Julie & Uncle Vernon's house. All four of their girls (Amy, Mary, Kaye & SAlly) were there. Three of them had babies last year. So we got together and let all the babies play. It was so much fun. I hadn't got to see my cousins in so long and it was such a blessing to get to spend time with them!! Thanks girls for letting me kiss all over your babies!!! THEIR PRECIOUS!!! Here are some pics from the weekend:

These are some pics of my first tutu in progress.... it was a little fluffy!! But we decided to put it on the girls (Sailor & Haven...... or "The Twins" as America has nick named them!!) and see what they thought:

Then on Monday (08/13) Sailor cut her 3RD tooth!! She's growing up guys!!!

On monday evening we went to eat with my parents for my dad's 44th Birthday. Here are some pics of Sailor and her Grandpa:

The Blessings Keep Coming!!

So sunday evening we were able to visit with our friends Josh and Hailey.... Well, on monday, Cameron's parents came by and brought us a HIGH CHAIR!!! Praise GOD!!! We've been needing one so bad! Now it is so much easier to feed Sailor and we can have her at the table with us when we eat dinner. Thank you Grammie & Pops!!


On monday evening our good friends Mitch and Kellie came into town with their beautiful baby girl Laurel Ann. She is 3 months younger than Sailor and just a cutie!! It was such a blessing getting to see them. Thank you Jesus for providing us such great Christian friends to fellowship with!! I wish the visit could have been longer.... and we didn't get very many pictures because the girls were tired after we got home from eating, but here's what we got:
