Another month...

Has come and gone by way too quickly. I try to soak in my days with Bo as I know our one-on-one time is growing short. We spend our days playing in the backyard, at the aquarium/museum, napping, eating, and everything in between. He continues to amaze me as he grows and is as sweet as he is wild. What a joy. He makes us laugh more often than not and can bring me to tears with his sweet voice saying "please, mama". Yes, he is beyond rotten yet I pray that we are fostering his heart to feel and express his feelings well. He is very tender and I long to protect that from the roughness that surrounds us daily.

Baby girl Broadrick is growing and squirming far more than I ever remember with Bo. Most of the day I walk around with a point completely stuck out on my right side attributed to a knee or heel of sorts pressing to the point of what feels combustion at times. She is out of room...we are expecting a long skinny baby to arrive in the upcoming 3 weeks.

A few pictures of our last few weeks!
Swim classes at the Y with our friends Amber and Jacks.

Get Naked and Eat Spaghetti night.

Celebrating our sweet baby girl. Bucky's sisters were so sweet to host a family get together at their mom's house. We had such a fun time visiting and everyone brought such beautiful gifts. It was a wonderful time to honor our sweet girl that will be here ever so soon and be reminded of what a blessing it is to be surrounded by wonderful family.

And I am pretty sure this makes me the worst mom ever...the fact that I awoke to a little voice calling, "mama" at 6:15 one morning soon to be followed by my discovering of Bo covered with poop. Where do you even start??? Well, I thought a camera was a great place followed by a shower! Where was daddy??? Running.

And finally Bo's first trip to Athens, GA. We went last week to see 2 college roommates and meet Kristin's new little boy, Wyatt. Natalie is expecting a boy in November as well. My mom made the trip and was a tremendous help with Bo. It was so much fun to catch up with these two girls. Being back in Athens can be a time warp...very hard to believe it has been 5 years since we left there!!!
