Find Your Passion

Everyone always tells you to find your passion, do what you love doing, don't waste time doing a job you hate. Well I found my passion. Being a mom. It is the first time I wake up every day and can say those words, "I love what I do." What's the problem you ask? I don' t get paid! So all of this to say---I'm quitting my job!! I'm going to stay home with Myers. I'm going to tutor in the afternoons. So if you think you see me mowing your neighbor's yard-it is me! Or if you think it was me that made your grande nonfat white mocha---you're right!!

Maybe he will sleep in his bed next!

We've Recovered!

We have finally recovered from our long weekend. Traveling with a baby is very different from taking a quick weekend trip with just the two of us. On Thursday we went to Oxford and spent the night. We went to Hernando on Friday because we found out we had a leak at our house. It turned out great because w got to see Niki, Reid, and Mary Abbott. Mary Abbott was so sweet with Myers. She acted like a little mommy. I also surprised my Pleasant Hill teachers. They hadn't seen Myers, so they were very excited when we showed up. I cried a little because I really miss them. Then we went to Itty Bitty where we got Myers the cutest outfit. We went back to Oxford on Friday night. Everyone went to the baseball game and Myers and I stayed at the condo because Birdie Godmother came in from Tupelo to see her godson. She got to hold him and he went to sleep in her arms!!!

On Saturday we planned to go to Aunt Marianna's graduation, but the graduation had to be moved from 11 to 2 because of the rain. By 2 o'clock Myers was ready to go home. Marianna had a surprise party back in Jackson Saturday night and Myers wasn't going to make it if he didn't get back to his house and rest. So we didn't actually get to see Marianna accept her diploma but we got some pics with her in her cap and gown and that's all that counts! We are so proud of her!!! We took a long nap and went to her party Saturday night at Gina's house.

On Sunday we went to church with Nana and Papaw and ate lunch with them and Aunt Jamie at the fish house. I had a great first Mother's Day. I wot a necklace from Myers with a key on the end. Matt says Myers holds the key to my heart. He was kidding, but it's the truth! It has taken us yesterday and today to recover, but we had so much fun!!!! Hope everyone had a great Mother's Day!

Birdie Godmother

Random Lady at Wedding Reception: "Oh, your baby is sooo cute!!"
Birdie: "Thanks, but he's not mine. He's my best friend's baby, but he is so cute."
Random Lady: "Yes, he is a beautiful baby."
Birdie: "Well, thanks. I am his godmother."

(1 Week Later)

Birdie: "I have a confession about Myers."
Kacey: "What did you do Birdie?"
Birdie: "I told someone that I was Myers's godmother."
Kacey: "Birdie, are you hinting that you would like to be Myers's godmother."
Birdie: "I would love to be his godmother!!"

We are not Catholic, but my child has a new self-proclaimed fairy godmother.

One Month Old

Myers was one month old yesterday. By the way-if he was born on the 31st and the month only has 30 days, do you celebrate on the 30th or the 1st? We celebrated on the 1st. I had always seen people make signs for their babies with the month on them, and I thought there could be something I could do on a onesie. Being the crafty and cheap (more cheap than crafty)couple that we are, Matt and I saw these onesies on and decided we could make them. Here's the result. Not quite as good as etsy's but cute!!

Newborn Pics

We got Myers's newborn pictures made on Monday. I love our photographer. She photographed our wedding. She was so good with Myers. I haven't gotten the proofs yet, but she posted two pics on her blog The pics are really sweet.

We've Done It!!

We've officially started a blog. We can't help it because we are completely obsessed with Myers and we want everyone to see him. Myers was born on March 31st at 11:28 a.m. He weighed 6lbs. 15 oz. and was 20 in. long. We are absolutely in love with him. I take back everything I've ever said about crazy moms because I am one. I just stare at him all day and think everything he does is advanced. He is one month old today and I cannot believe it (I used to hate when moms said that). Yesterday he smiled at me when I smiled at him. No it was not gas. I made him do it fifty times to make sure. Here's a pic.
