Happy Birthday Kelly!

Today is my best friends Birthday! She is Kelly, of "Kelly's Corner" blog. She will get her best present ever in a couple of weeks when Harper is born. I am so looking forward to us hanging out with our girls. Kelly knows me and makes me laugh like no other friends. I love you! Kelly and I lived together for 7 years after college. She is like my sister, for sure. I would post a picture, but Steve changed something on the computer and I don't know how to find them anymore. We are having lunch today and Emily and I are so excited. We love being around Kelly. Kelly, I hope your day is WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sarah Kate and Wells

I kept SK's little friend, Wells, today for a little while. We loved having him here. SKwas so excited to have a friend over to play. She screamed with excitement. I think it was a little much and a little loud for Wells. Look at his expression. Notice SK kept her hand on him most of the time. Both their Daddies went to Mississippi State. Come back to visit us any day Wells!

A Visit From St. Nick

I fed SK some carrots on Sat night. She was not too excited, but I think she also might have been too full to want them. She had just eaten some rice cereal. Thanks to our wonderful neighbors, Santa and Mrs. Claus came to our neighborhood. Emily told Santa that she wanted a Tinker Bell toy. Emily had a wonderful evening!

Glossy Lips

I told Emily that I wanted to take her and SK's picture since they were dressed alike. Emily went and got this "Nerd" flavored lip gloss and insisted Sarah Kate have some too. Sarah Kate was loving every minute of Emily putting the "lipstick" on her, as Emily calls it. I am sure it probably says..."not recommended for children under three" somewhere on the package. I didn't figure it could hurt them. Ready for the picture! These little shirts were a Christmas gift from my cousin. Emily was thinking she was looking good...... and I have to say, she was! Emily was yelling that Sarah Kate was getting her. Merry Christmas!

She Did It!

Sarah Kate slept all through the night! Went to bed at 8:30 and we did not hear from her till 6:40. Tuesday night I just let her cry when she wanted to be fed. I did not pick her up, but I would pat her and give her back her pacifier. She cried for two hours straight. It made me so sad, but I think it is the key to get her to sleep. Thank you Lord for answering this prayer!

No Rest and Thanksgiving

I have not posted in a while and I was just hoping I would be able to report that Sarah Kate is sleeping through the night. NOPE! But....I am very encouraged with her sleeping lately. I tried a combination of just giving her water, rocking her back to sleep and crying for 5 to 15 minute intervals. She has slept 6 hours for 2 nights in the last last couple of weeks. When we went to my folks for Thanksgiving, she woke up every hour the first night. I was so tired. On our travels to South Arkansas, we stopped at my school: Ouachita Baptist University! I love that place! I told Emily that this was mama's school and she said at least 10 times, "I want to go to Mama's school!" I hope she is still saying that 15 years from now! My parents recently returned from Hawaii and they brought Emily this lei. She was proud. Mama, me and Sarah Kate on Thanksgiving night. Emily having fun with cousin Kendall.
