18 Weeks

When Vince was 18 weeks gestation we found out he was a boy! 18 weeks into his life he is such a happy baby boy! We are so blessed to be his parents!

Mommy's Little Pumpkin

On Saturday, we went to pick up some pumpkins. Vince was wearing his "Mommy's Little Pumpkin" oufit complete with a jack-o-lantern on his butt! We got one for each member of the family and are really excited to carve them soon. The lady selling them even gave Vince a mini pumpkin since it was his first Halloween!

Go Cats!

This weekend was a great time for UK sports.  We started off the weekend with Big Blue Madness introducing the new basketball teams. 
On Saturday, the football team played South Carolina.  SC was favored to win, but the Cats pulled off a great victory.  It was an exciting game!
 We bleed blue!
 Our little Wildcat
He loves being a wildcat :)

Grammy and Pappaw found the costume and they bought a 6-9 months size for him.  Hopefully it will last through March Madness!  We love our football team too, but it's really all about basketball in the Bluegrass!

Playin' Around

Vince made a new friend on the way home from the mountains last week.  He made "Teddy" at a Build-A-Bear workshop in a Knoxville mall.  He loves it when I put Teddy on his stomach and he can feel his soft fur.  He still loves his own hand most of all, though!
He has also started to like his jumperoo!  He can sit up in it good now.  He almost reaches the floor, but not quite.  He played with some of the toys he could reach, but eventually was just satisfied with his hand! haha
He's turning into such a big boy!  I am so happy to be his mommy.

Shows Us Your Life - Kitchen

Here's my kitchen:
When we moved into the house there was panelling throughout the kitchen and attached dining room. When we began removing the paneling to drywall, we had to pull down some of the existing (original to the house) cabinets. We decided then (I pleaded and begged and Grant agreed) to put in new cabinets. We had custom cabinets built to maximize our space (which is small). I absolutely love them! They are painted white and then have a chocolate glaze over them. The previous owner's family had just put in a new oven and stovetop so we bought a fridge and microwave to match. No, we didn't get stainless steel because I didn't want to always have mismatched appliances. Plus, I think the white is clean looking and easier to keep clean than stainless.
I got these canisters at a yard sale this summer. They are CorningWare. I added the little homemade chalkboard tags with some ribbon I had around.
Who says you can ever have too many bottles? - Not Vince :)

The Great Smoky Mountains

This past weekend we headed down to Tennessee with Grant's parents. We spent the weekend in Pigeon Forge and had a great time. When we arrived Saturday, I looked up another blogger, Brit and went to one of her downtown Gatlinburg favorites.. It was called Best Italian and it was pretty good. (The marinara was sweet, which I loved!) Here's a photo of our family outside the restaurant with a little Fall scene.

The next day was cold and rainy all day. We stayed in the Pigeon Forge and Seveirville area to shop and eat. We went to Tanger and got Vince some jeans and new pj's at Baby Gap. Vince talked his mom into a sweatshirt and I got a caramel apple! We ate at Five Guys Burgers and Fries. It was good. Vince had a bottle after we finished eating. Driving through I noticed the Christmas shops and had to stop in. We got a Gatlinburg ornament with a bear and a squirrel to commemorate our visit. Grant also bought Vince a new book called "Mommy and Me." The book is really sweet and so is my husband - I thought that was so thoughtful of him. It shows what Mommy and Baby do all day long together from waking up to going to sleep. I love it because I am a SAHM right now which I am absolutely loving! I didn't think I would ever be able to do this, soI am so happy. I know it isn't long term so I am trying to enjoy every moment until I find a part-time job.
Here's a picture of Vince meeting Santa!  He was really looking around and checking everything out.  We did a quick wardrobe change with a Christmas sweater that Grana just bought at the Carter's outlet.
Here's the entire group at the Chimenys.  I love the creek and all the stones!  It was cold so Vince and I stayed up by the truck and inside most of the time.  The others went walking around some. 
Here we are warming up by a fire in the Great Outdoors.  It's at the park entrance right outside of Gatlinburg.  It felt good after being in the cold air!
