Another month

Yesterday I woke up in a total funk. I didn't want to get out of bed at all. I decided I would get my coffee and snuggle with Gus for a little while. I wasn't sure why I was having this kind of morning but I needed to embrace it and deal with my sadness. As I sat in the bed drinking my coffee I got a text from one of my very best friends Sarah. She said, "Thinking of you today, love you!". It hit me like a ton of bricks, today Mamie would be 18mths. I couldn't believed I forgot. I couldn't believe that Sarah remembered but then I thought of course she remembered! Sarah never forgets those important days with anyone. I sat in bed for a while loving on Gus thinking about my little girl. 18mths seems so long ago but it feels like yesterday to me. I thought about how she would be snuggled up in the bed with Gus and I. Her warm little body and sweet smell. I hope she knows how much her momma misses her. There is a hole in my life and he…

Sweet baby time

This morning was just what I needed. Brit dropped Abe off so she could go run some errands before we are all house bound because of the snow. We have been snuggling on the couch by the fire. He has been awake for a while just looking around. I wonder what he sees. We have watched it snow for a while and then I took him into Mamie's room to rock. He feel right asleep so we sat in there for a while just being quiet. I found myself daydreaming about rocking Mamie that same way. It was so peaceful. We are now back on the couch and I have this little snuggle bunny snoozing on my chest. It has been a good morning. Just me and Abe. I really needed this.-SarahSent from my iPhone

We are having a BOY!

Sorry for the delay on announcing the sex of our little Olive. We found out last week that we are having a baby boy and we are SO excited. We would have been excited either way we just want a healthy and happy baby here on earth with us. We already have a name for our sweet little guy. His full name will be Burke Kenneth Adams. Burke (what we will call him) is my mother's maiden name and we have planned to use it since the first day we started talking about babies. Kenneth is after Taylor's dad and that is also Taylor's first name. I wasn't prepared for the crazy emotions I had after finding out the sex. I wasn't sad at all because it was a boy I would have been the same way if it was a girl. It has just been a very emotional roller coaster. I have kind of kept myself separated from this baby. I just don't want my heart to get hurt again. The feelings are SO hard to explain. You mothers out there that are reading this that have lost and then had a…

Snow Day 2011

I can't believe all the snow we got yesterday and it wasn't ice like we usually get. It was nice powdery snow :) Taylor and I spent the morning snuggled up by the fire drinking coffee and just enjoying our morning. The view out our windows was so beautiful. Our main floor is in the tops of the trees out back and it was just amazing to see. I took Gus outside to get a few pictures and man was it quiet. I love the peaceful silence you have after a good snow. Yesterday afternoon we bundled up and headed down to Brit & Jason's to play with Silas in the snow. He was so excited to see us. We had a snowball fight and Jason and Silas built a snowman. Soon after the snowman had no eyes or nose because Silas decided he wanted to eat the cookie eyes and the cold half frozen carrot nose. He thought he was so funny. It was a good day.- Sarah

Our Uncle Stevie

This Monday was one of my very favorite uncle's funeral. For those of you that know me well know about Uncle Stevie and Aunt Sandy. They have been a very important part of our lives since we were babies. I just can't believe he is gone. We all miss him like crazy but have so many wonderful memories that we will cherish forever. Every time I get sad I think about how he must be holding Mamie right now in Heaven. He was so sad when we lost her and I just know he is up there making her laugh with all of his funniness. For those of you that don't know, Taylor and I had a destination wedding planned in Seaside, FL. We all headed down to get ready. I wanted a simple wedding with close friends and family. That was the plan. The Monday before our wedding which was on that Thursday we were all evacuated because hurricane Ivan was headed to shore. We all hopped in our cars and headed back to Arkansas. Most of the guys were still home getting ready to head out along with…
