This onesie says it all! My precious little boy you were worth every ache, pain, tear, poke, sick morning, and my last month on bed rest! You are my everything Cannin Blake, and Mommy wants you to know if it's in my power you will never endure any hurt or pain! I will take it all away. Right now Cannin is napping and I read these blogs about these poor babies, and I can not express my love for him. I could not imagine being in their shoes watching their little ones slip farther away from them. So Cannin and I are praying for Baby Kayleigh, and praising because Stellan went home!

It has been a few days since I have last blogged, and I can't stand it! I have been so busy. Cannin is growing like a weed. He ate his first cereal from a spoon today eventhough I didn't want him too...only because this means he is growing up faster than I realize. We had a great weekend relaxing by the pool and another milestone for Cannie...he sat up in his stroller like a big boy :( I am so glad he is progressing like he should but man does it tug on my heart strings. Here are Cannin and Daddy having a conversation and laughing. I love these little moments when I catch them two doing things like this!
Yesterday the Sullivans welcomed their baby boy to the family. Amy and I made a roadtrip to Dublin to see that precious little guy! I can't wait till Casey brings him and the girls down here so I can see them again! Here is Keigan and I last night at the hospital.
We also got Cannin his jumper yesterday! It is too stinkin cute! He loves it...His legs are still a little short to reach but he does his best! Only a few more months buddy and you will have it down like a pro! So this post has lots of pictures but I know Grammie will love it! Until next time...Have a blessed day!

I really don't have a good title for today because we did nothing! It is still raining on and off all the time...I'm ready for this storm to pass! When Dustin got home we did go walk around the mall that was fun, but I was ready to get Cannin home because we forgot his pappy! I was so nervous our entire trip because I didn't have an extra on me either they are in his other bag!
I love this picture I took of Cannin. It makes me think he was thinking WHAT!?
He has so many different faces and such a personality to him already..I'm gonna have my hands full! So say a little prayer for

Have a blessed day!

Rain, Rain, Rain

It's raining outside and really nasty. I wanted to go out today and walk or at least go walk around the mall. JC Pennys is having a fantastic sale, but I just hate dragging poor Cannin along in the rain! I really need to be cleaning this house, but again just not motivated to do it!

Here is Cannin yesterday at Amy and Justin's. I just love this picture. He is growing up into a little boy, and it is just breaking my heart! Don't get me wrong I can't wait for him to grow up so I can tell more about his personality, watch him walk, and have a conversation with him, but I would keep him this size forever! His poor little life started out rough, but he has become the best baby! He wakes up in a good mood and stays in one unless he's hungry or sleepy. Mommy has spoiled him to rocking every night before bed and no one can do it like she can! He will cry and cry. I love it though that is a special time for both of us while unwinding from the day!

Here is my quote for the day I thought this was very true: This is our purpose: to make as meaningful as possible this life that has been bestowed upon us; to live in such a way that we may be proud of ourselves; to act in such a way that some part of us lives on. Oswald Spengler>

This has been a fabulous weekend! I started working at a salon, and Cannin got to stay with his Aunt Amy and Daddy. I missed him like crazy but it was also good for the both of us to spend some time apart. Today I did Amy's hair and it looks great! I'm so glad she loves it. Cannin is growing like a weed. He will go next month for his shots and check-up. I'm already dreading it.

So Cannin what have you been up too?
*you are still in size 1 diapers
*you are talking so much
*you are trying to laugh out loud and it's getting there but still a little trouble
*you are sleeping better through the night up about every 5-6 hours to eat!
*you are trying cereal in your bottle and you love it!
*you are growing to much slow down!
* you love to watch t.v and baby einstein movies
* you are starting to love tummy time. YEA!!!
Mommy can't believe you will be 4 months old next month seems like just last week I had you home for the first time!

From our home to yours have a blessed day!

It's Monday!

Happy Easter! I know it's a day late...but I'm a day behind with coming in from Indiana. We had a blast! We got an offical tour of Kentland from Amy and the boys! Cannin had his picture made in front of the cannon on the square and everything! I love this little smirk he has! Reminds me of his Grumpies and Uncle Jar-Jar.

Cannin was so tired this is what he did after all the fun we had this week...Just precious.

He had 2 egg hunts one at Cindy and Bill's and one at the courthouse up town. There is so much candy I can't believe it. And oh my did the Easter Bunny find our house. Cannin got so much it was unreal...I'm afraid of what Christmas will bring....(Grammie)

Ashton was such a helper he picked out all of Cannin's clothes for the week, and he loved to rub lotion on him! Here are the boys watching t.v. They did this alot this
We had so much fun..alot of laughs that brought tears...I needed it. I did nothing but play cards and relax all week...Hope everyone had a great Easter like we did!

Have a blessed day!

Fun in Indiana

We are having a great time in Indiana. I am so glad Cannin and I decided to join Amy and the boys and make the roadtrip. It was a blast! I loved hearing "He's agravating me...He's touching me....He's looking at me" and Cannin laughing the whole time. Grandma Cindy and Pawpaw Bill have been very welcoming we feel we are a part of the family.

Last night we played cards while the boys were at their other grandmas. It was so quite except the roar of laughter you would hear from us adults. Dinner was excellent but I am really looking forward to tonights! Fried Chicken..(grandma style).

There is snow on the ground, but it's melting fast! YEA!!! I want Easter weekend to be beautiful. I am so ready to have my little one's first egg hunt, and for him to see what the Easter bunny brought him!
Cannin wants to shout out to his Grammie for her to get to Ohio ASAP!! He says he misses her like crazy and wants to see her. Oh and I need some momma time too~
From our house to yours Have a blessed day!

Indiana Here We Come

So the title speaks for its self. Cannin and I will venture out of Ohio with Amy and the boys to spend a week in Indiana! I am beyond excited. We will be staying with her parents so watch out Cindy and Bill here we come!!! I will have tons of pictures to post! We are still begging Grammie to come see us! We miss her bunches, but we know she has to work. Bc we know Grumpies just sits at home and doesn't do his drawings right Grammie LOL....

Here are some pics I took yesterday of Cannin! He loves this sock monkey. He could sit and stare at it for hours.

Here we are Cannin and I... We love taking pictures I know you can never have enough!

Cannin is 11 weeks old today my where has time gone! I have decided to post updates about him as he gets older. I am not very good about keeping up with scrapbooking. Lord knows I love to do it but yeah! This could be why Amy is doing it for me> THANK YOU!!!!

-You are sleeping better at night! You only wake up unless you have a tummy ache or to eat!

-You are still in a size 1 diaper. Mommy doesn't want you to grow.

- You HATE tummy time, but you can lift that head up high!

-You have learned to lay an enertain yourself somewhat.

-You LOVE your bouncy seat and swing. We use these daily and for hours.

-You love to stare at the puppies, and they love to give you kisses!

-Baby Einstein is your favorite when we turn it on you instantly calm down

-You are my everything, and I couldn't imagine my life without you Cannie B.

On another note we have one more year left in the military and then we will be moving back to Texas. I can't wait. I am so ready to be around my friends and family. I hate missing holidays and birthdays and pretty much everything. It's hard to hear everyone having a good time when we are here by ourselves. Don't get me wrong we have met amazing people and I will be sad to leave them. But I feel where I am at right now in my life I just need my family!

From our family to yours Have a blessed day!
