Matt's First Father's Day

Yesterday was Father's Day...and that meant it was Matt's first Father's Day! He has been such an amazing father during the past 3.5 months. I have seen him grow as Miles grows and it is awe inspiring to me. I am so proud of the Dad Matt has become.

We spent the day together as a family unit of three. We woke up at Mom's house in West Memphis and Matt was greeted by Miles and his Father's Day goodies. Miles gave him some Tennessee rocks cups for his whiskey drinks, and made him a little booklet of "52 Reasons Why You're an Amazing Dad." (Got the idea from Pinterest. It was my first Pinterest project!)

Then, we headed home to Jackson. We spent the afternoon playing with Miles, unpacking, and taking naps.

Miles and Daddy

Miles wore a onesie to commemorate the day.

He played in his activity seat that his NeNe and Mommie Cica gave him. He loved it!

But liked chewing on the parts much more!

After our afternoon together, all three of us went over to Mimi and Papa Darrell's house to celebrate Father's Day with some grilled pork chops, potatoes au gratin, green bean casserole, corn and pie. Overall, it was a great day spent with the people I love most. I even got to see my dad for a little while before we left Arkansas.

June Weddings

We have spent the past two weekends in Memphis for weddings. The first weekend of June a family friend of mine got married at FUMC in West Memphis and had her reception in Downtown Memphis.

This is Matt and I at the reception. They had an awesome band and we had a great time dancing.

Then, this past weekend two of our very dear friends got married in Germantown. We are so happy for Erica and Kevin Butler. Matt and I were both in this wedding.

Matt, Miles and I at the rehearsal dinner. We had yummy BBQ from Germantown Comissary!

Miles was just hanging out in his stroller during the rehearsal. He was such a good boy!

Erica and I before she walked down the aisle. She was such a beautiful bride.

Matt and I at the reception, which was at the Memphis Raquet Club. We had so much fun, but we missed our Miles...who spent his night with Honey and Jo-Pa.

This is the picture my mom sent me while Matt and I were at the wedding. She said he loved playing in his activity seat. He is getting too big already!!

Hanging out with Mommy

Miles and I have enjoyed the past few weeks together. We've spent our days watching Sesame Street and Dora, playing, and going for runs in the neighborhood. Sorry it has been a while since my last post....I have been busy with weddings, bachelorette parties, and trying to write a 40 page paper for my last master's class.

Miles is doing well....his blocked tear ducts don't seem to be a problem anymore. I have been putting breast milk in his eyes and it helped clear them up! He is growing like a weed. I tried to put a 3 month sleep and play on him the other day and it fit in the width, but was too short!! I believe we will have a tall young man some day. He is also holding his head up so well! We are so proud of our little guy!

I've taken several videos of our young are a couple.

The first one is of him having tummy time. His Mimi (Elaine) taught him how to do this and he is playing with his favorite toy that his Uncle Brandon got him.

The next video is of him having a conversation with me. I ask him questions and he responds in his own way. It is so cute!! This is one of my favorite things to do with Miles.
