Well as many of you know we have been on a mad search for day care. My mom's time has come to an end and with Chatham turn FIVE MONTHS on Thursday we thought we should get on with the hunt.

It was slow to start and many wait lists later we have been accepted! To my FIRST CHOICE day care no less!!! HOW EXCITING!

Starting one week from today (Sept. 1st) Chatham will be a student of Abernethy Child Development Center!!

Get ready for LOTS of new and fun storys to be shared!

I think he'll be a people person!

Chatham is becoming quite a social butterfly!
We went to the park with the Cook's and the Rainey's Saturday for a family picnic- Chatham got to swing and go down the slide- he LOVED it!

He even decided to sit up all by himself that morning so he was able to show off his new trick for the other kiddo's that day.

Thursday was our town parade (Old Soldier's Reunion) we went with Grammy Hokie (Chatham's Great Grandma), Gram, and uncle Al. We were just a few tree's down from the Rainey's. And the Cook's came to hang out for the actual parade. This is a picture Kathleen took of us!

This is the group shot of all the little ones at the park (Chatham, Anna, Freddie, and Caden)

Just barely hanging on...

Things are crazy in our neck of the woods...

Teachers coming back to school, Chatham about to be five months old, recouping from a week of vacation, starting our search for a day care, and then just life in general....

Finding time to blog is becoming few and far between, but I don't want my loyal veiwers to feel left out- pictures are on there way...and many stories to go with it.

Just wanted to make a post to let you know I have not abandoned ship and Chatham is busy as ever and can't wait to share his latest, greatest adventures with you all!

Blogging Hiatus...

We are going on a Stay-cation!!! We are going to stay with Aunt Ma'am (that's my Aunt Carrie for those of you who have known us a while); her name has been changed since I am now AUNT CARRIE!!! We don't want to confuse the little ones.
The WHOLE family is going to Aunt Ma'am and Uncle Grumpy's for the week to swim, eat, scrapbook, hot tub, relax, eat, and just have fun (did I mention eating?? we always have GREAT food there)
So there will be no more blogging this week but I will have A TON to report when we return.
Including this past weekends fun- CHATHAM GOT BAPTIZED!!!!
He didn't cry, there was no spit up, and he wore THREE outfits, by mama's choice, not by need. And might I add, TWO of them were worn with NO BIB!!! YAY!

Thank you to everyone who came to church yesterday to witness my little boys rebirth!!!

It's Friday again...So show us your Life-

Today is Show Us Your Reception and Honeymoon day at Kelly's Korner- click HERE and check it out!!!
This is Mosteller Mansion, where the reception was held- and here are a few of the tables my mom and Al decorated! The Mantels ALL over the mansion were gorgeous!

There were LOTS of toasts- and this is the only shot they got with no tears! Suzanne even brought me her napkin because my Daddy made me bawl!

Mama and Daddy shagged and I danced with nearly every man in the place- haha! (The black and white of my daddy and me is my favorite, I don't know what happened to the lens, but there isn't fog are anything, just a cool natural effect)

Our cake was delicious and a major center peice of decor in the "main room"

Our honeymoon was in St. Thomas and it was beautiful....

We stayed at the Wydham Restort at Sugar Bay
This was our nightly "perch" outside the restuarant to watch the sunset.

Prayer Request

I ask that you all take a moment today to add to your prayers Dr. Ken Yaussy, his wife and two teenage daughters. Dr. Yaussy has been fighting LONG and HARD to beat the brain cancer he has suffered from for over a year now, and sadly yesterday afternoon the battle became too great and he passed on to be with the Lord.
Please pray for his family and friends as they try to find comfort and peace during this difficult time.

On the Move...

I have yet to capture it on film but Chatham is rolling over, from back to tummy. He's like a mad man! I went in his room about 4:30 this morning (when he woke up- grrr! Where'd my sleeping boy go???) and he was on his tummy pushed up just looking around- I flipped him back over on his back and before I could leave his room he was back over on his tummy- just laughin' away!
He continued to flip for the remainder of the morning and even a few times at Gram and Poppy's house this afternoon (show off- hehe)
Friday was Chatham's 4 month check up and things are going well- we were given a few more tips on minimizing the spit up/reflux situation at hand, and that seems to be going well. Height was in the 60th percentile at 26 inches- and weight is 75th percentile at 15 lbs. 12 oz. Of course he got the second round of vaccines and was quite a trooper about it, he has a small welt on his leg still, but no fever and still smiling and giggling. He has been particularly fussy and as I mentioned before not sleeping through the night right now, but who knows- maybe we're beginning to teeth???

This weekends shout out from Chatham are to his friend Whitney who is home from the hospital and off of her antibiotics (she had pneumonia)
to his friend Caden who has sprouted his first tooth!!!
