Swimming in Blueberries

Standard

Tomorrow is July 4th which means food, fellowship, and fireworks! In one word:  AMAZING! This week has been a busy week and we have accomplished many things. On Monday we went swimming with the Morrow family, Tuesday we picked blueberries, Wednesday we drove to Martin, and now we are just resting and enjoying ourselves.

Blueberry Picking

We have this sweet couple in our church who has a ton of blueberry bushes. Every year since we have moved to Meridian we have travel to their home and picked fantastic blueberries.

 

AP would eat more blueberries than she would put in her basket! When it was time to go home she sat down on a bucket with her bucket of blueberries and said "Momma I just want to sit here and eat my blueberries."

Miles was not very helpful but he sure loved blueberries. He has a little proof on his chin.

I am adding this picture just because I love it. It is not a perfect picture: my children are both out of focus and the blueberry bush has blueberries that are ready for picking. There is just something I like about it, maybe when it is not 11p.m. I will figure out what it is.

 

I am adding this one just because I love him!! Also look at those blue eyes. My oh my those blue eyes.

Swimming

My children are very timid of water that is not in a bath tub. It has taken AP 2 years to enjoy the water and Miles still has not had a successful swim. However, we still love to go. AP dips her toes in and Miles just eats bananas and raisens (which are his favorite foods).

She spends most of her time on the step. This is not a bad thing for a worried mama.

He is just eating. If you are wondering where the banana is it was consumed in one big bite within 30 seconds.

This is Katie and she loves Miles. All the Morrow kids love them some Miles.

This is a great picture of Addie. She is trying to presuade me to give her some more chips. Of course I told her NO and she should get back into the water. I will not describe the fit she threw in response.

I hope that all of you have a Happy 4th and enjoy some food, fellowship, and fireworks!

 

 

2 Years Old!!

I cannot believe that our precious little girl turned two today. I’ve been really emotional about it but I think that is due to the fact that I am also 31 weeks pregnant. We had a nice little birthday celebration lunch. We had some spaghetti and funfetti cake (which had to have extra sprinkles because Addie P. loves sprinkles). Here are some fantastic photos that we were able to get today.

Welcome, Addie Pearl Breeden!

Standard

On March 10, 2011 at 6:53 PM, Addie Pearl Breeden was born! She weighed 7 lbs 12 oz and was 21.5 inches long. She has her mother’s mouth and chin, her father’s ears and feet, and a head full of hair! She is already a blessing and a joy to her parents. We thank God for his kindness to us in this precious new addition to our family.

Now that she is here, expect this blog to be inundated with stories and updates of our little girl. The truly devoted Addie Pearl fan will want to check out Addie Pearl’s World. That blog will feature photos and videos (because WordPress doesn’t like videos very much). We’ll link to the new stuff over there from time to time. Check back soon and often.

Update

Standard

OK, so it has been a while. We are still alive. The past few months have been busy because we’re having a baby!!!

This begins our 24th week. We are having a little girl. She is due around March 10, 2011. Her name is Addie Pearl Breeden. (She is named after Shalaine’s great-grandmother, but there are Addie’s and Pearl’s on my side as well.)

We’ve started a blog for the sole purpose of posting photos and videos of our little pride and joy leading up till the birth and beyond. The website is addiepearl.posterous.com. Every post we do there will be cross-posted here, however, videos will probably not work on this  blog, which is the reason we started another blog.

Anyway, post frequency will definitely increase around here and then explode in the spring. Stay tuned.
