oh no baby…put the thumb DOWN! I promise you, it wasn’t worth the thumb guards, retainers, pallet expanders, and braces. But you do look so, so, so cute. Baby Croft 001

Sorry, son! You’re cute from EVERY angle!

Work it, Work it..

    One day, my ridiculously expensive camera was giving me an awful time. All we needed was one simple picture but I just couldn’t get all my settings right. After nearly 45 minutes of not understanding why colors were being blown out, etc. I realized I didn’t have my UV filter on. Ugh. Marcus, in the meantime, had to do this..

Hilarious. I am refraining from posting the nearly 500 others from his job as a stand-in for lighting…

A library

     When a good friend of mine was pregnant, she put a lot of energy into careful building a library for her little baby. I thought that that was a pretty brilliant idea & a good way to avoid purchasing every adorable little boy outfit I lay eyes on. Since I figure my son will have/receive plenty of clothes, I too have started picking out books for my little man. I am a little bit picky with children’s books… I think there is a lot of less than quality books out there… so I was thrilled when my mom told me she spied a bunch of Little Golden books at a local antique mall. Classics!!

Richard Scarry & Beatrix Potter are a must!

Any other book suggestions? I have many more on my wish list but thought this was a pretty good start!

Beach trips after mass nearly every Sunday.



AND, oh yeah…..

I put my two weeks notice in. I’ll be hanging up the lifeguarding suit at the end of this month! I’m still in shock over that news myself…

Happy July friends! Hope y’all are making the most of Summer!

Waiting on Charlotte

     One weekend in the crazy, busy month of June. My sis-in-law {Y’all know Emily, right} and I threw a baby shower for Becky. In case you are confused, Becky is Emily’s twin sister and one of my 3 fabulous sisters-in-law. Becky’s baby girl, Charlotte, is due in just about a week and I’m getting giddy with excitement!

I love you, son.
