Catch up!

I have been a horrible blogger, I know.  So here is a quick update on what has been going on and also on Thanksgiving.

This picture pretty much sums up what has been going on and also explains why I have been MIA lately. 

We went to Decatur this year for Thanksgiving and for the 1st time in my life, I was at the adult table.  Every year before, I was just a progressively nicer kids table, you know, the table got bigger, but still all the same people, just older than the year before.  This year kevin and I sat at the adult table, not because we are adults, but because we transported the most important person to the festivities.  Rory was of course seated with the adults and Kevin and I, by default, were too.  She had her own little place setting complete with place card and Sterling Silver Cup and Spoon.  Don't worry, she isn't spoiled or anything!

I was VERY glad that both Mama Sue (my MOther's mother) and PeePaw (Dad's Dad) were able to be there and even more glad that I managed to remember to get a picture of Rory with each of them.  She is a lucky, lucky girl and I can attest to the fact that they  think that she is pretty much the best thing ever.  Not that I disagree!

I am including this one since it is just too cute not to.  Rory was all about walking around and Sarah Grace was more than happy to satisfy her need to roam.  Thanks Sarah!

I had to include a picture of one of "my babies" with my baby.  It doesn't seem that long ago that they were this little.  Now, they are almost 15, wow I can't believe it!

Growing up, I always had a dress for Christmas and of course, Mom always saved them.  I knew that I wanted a dress for Rory for Christmas that was all her own.  I didn't want one, however, that was the traditional red and green since she will also have mine, which is red and green.  Mom mentioned that she had an angel plate that she always wanted to smock for me, and just never did it.  I knew that it would be perfect. Well, the idea blossomed from there and she decided to make her a coat too.  It turned out really well and I couldn't be happier.  Rory looks like such a little angel in it and the coat and hat make her look like a little china doll.

Well, that is all for now.  I am busily preparing for Rory's 1st Birthday.  Uhh, can't believe it has been a year. It has been the best year of my life, we are so blessed to be her parents, so, so blessed!

11 months

11 just doesn't seem possible.  We went to the Botanical Gardens today and I was amazed at how big you looked standing there looking at all God's creation.  I hope, sweet girl, that you will stop and see the wonder that God has created around you, I hope that you will always love to laugh, I hope that you will always know how much your Daddy and I love you.  You truely are our miracle, Rory Meredith.  We are so blessed to watch you grow.  Could you do us a favor though, and slow down?

Just a second

  • I have asked you all to pray for Sweet Stellan before and so I will renew that request. Stellan is in a fight for his sweet little life right now. He was just taken into surgery with the hope of a resolution of his SVT without catastrophic repercussions. Please take a second and say a prayer for this sweet baby, his sweet Mama who just had to put her sweet baby boy on a bed to be wheeled away without knowing if it is the last time that she would see his sweet precious face this side of heaven, and his anxious father who is boarding an airplane to get to Boston as soon as possible so that he can be with his wife and baby and for the doctors who are quite literally Stellan's only earthly hope at this point.
  • God, be with Stellan and his Mom and Dad. Guide the surgeons hands, may they be your hands, in healing Stellan's sweet little heart. Bring Stellan through the surgery with results so miraculous that only you can be credited. Place your angels as a hedge of protection around this family, and all those involved with Stellan's care.
  • UPDATE: Stellan's surgery was a success, he is SVT free. He is not out of the woods yet, they are having some trouble with bloodflow to his right leg. Please pray that bloodflow can be restored and he will come through just fine.

Ten on Tuesday--Wednesday

  1. It is November already, I don't even remember October.
  2. Rory took her 1st big spill this past weekend, at my In-Law's house. I was in the kitchen, apparently everyone in the living room thought that someone else was watching her, she went down the steps. I FREAKED out! Rory screamed, she is fine, has a bit of a black eye and a bruise on her hip. It still makes me sick to think about it.
  3. I have Rory's Birthday invites done, I just have to get them printed.
  4. Last year at this time I was 8 months pregnant and miserable. I can't believe that it has been a year already!
  5. I am so excited for Christmas and Rory's birthday but I am going to spend too much, I can already tell
  6. We (Rory and I) will be in Decatur this weekend. I don't know yet when we are coming and going, but we will be there at some point.
  7. Rory's new skill of the week...saying Poop (although it sounds like boop). If you ask her what is in her pants she says "Boop" even if there isn't. Great...very lady like don't you think?
  8. I miss my friend Allison. She moved to DC with her fiance 2 weeks ago and I am about to go crazy missing her.
  9. I ordered us new stocking this year. THESE are mine and Kevin's and THIS one is Rory's. Mine and Kev's came in yesterday and Rory's should be in this week.
  10. I can't think of 10...sorry!

Happy Halloween!

Despite fighting off a cold this week and Kevin having to work on Rory's first Halloween, we had a good time! We went to my in-law's house and Rory and our nephews went trick or treating together. They had a good time and all 3 were really cute. Daddy thought that Miss Rory-Bug was pretty cute. I took her tights off of her so that she could crawl without slipping around. She was having a good time, as you can see. Davis and Rory. Davis was "Mr. Incredible" from 'The Incredibles.' Rory thinks that Davis is REALLY funny! Brock was Superman, he was too cute! The Humphrey grand kids are awfully cute...and mischevioius! Mr Incredible and Superman, we were in good hands should any bad guys show up. Brock was clearly not interested in smiling for any pictures. Our little lady bug. Her costume was padded and was hilarious. It was also really warm, so she was plenty warm. I was worried that it would be too hot, you know how Halloween in Alabama is, it could be 85 or it could be 35, you just never know. I totally forgot to get her a candy bucket, so I pulled out the old paint pens and ribbons and threw something together. I had this little tin the in closet waiting for inspiration and voila...candy bucket today...who knows what tomorrow. We like Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
