Be my Valentine

Happy Valentines Day!! We got Henslee a mailbox from Pottery Barn and put it on the back of a chair. Her grandparents have been sending her cards to put in there and so we opened them up! She loves to look at cards and books.  Here are some cute pics from "her" opening her cards

Half Birthday!

Our sweet little booger is 6 months old. Cannot believe it. She is growing and changing daily. She decided one day out of  the blue after we had been  shoving food in her mouth that she now loves food.. So she is eating peas, carrots, sweet potatoes and AVOCADOS are her favorite!! She hates fruit!

You are our sunshine!! Still not quite sleeping through the night but you are trying. Between all your teeth that keep coming in (you have 2 and 2 trying to come in)  and a couple ear infections you are trying to sleep and for that we are so thankful! You are giggling a lot more which brightens are day. You are trying so hard to crawl. Your favorite thing is BELLA. You scream at her to get her attention and she is just as crazy about you!

Grandparents are the BEST!

A few weeks ago my mom came in town for the weekend and then the following weekend we met Grammie in Lebanon and went shopping for HHH some clothes. We got a ton of clothes!! It is always so great to see my family. They do not live too far but Henslee is growing up so fast and I want us all to love on her every minute we can. Every time my mom comes in town Henslee does something new. She started just babbling on this time around. She is going to come in this weekend so maybe she will be crawling by then. :)

Then the next day Papa and Gigi came to visit. Gigi birthday is Valentines so we dressed Henslee up in her hearts dress. Gigi and Papa brought LOTS of gifts for all of us.. I got a heart paper weight, Chad got a underarmor Auburn jacket (he loves) and Henslee got a little outfit to wear on Valentines (which you will see shortly) and some great toys that she loves.

10,9,8,7,6,5....HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

We had an awesome New Years weekend. Every year we get together with some great friends and ring in the new year, typically in Gatlinburg or some great location. This year however we had it at the Hethcox house. It was just going to be easier with the little one in tow. I just could not send her to her grandparents with her not sleeping through the night yet... not to mention the eating scenario.

Hayden and Yance came from Los Angelos (they were in from Christmas) and Lauren and Dave and baby girl in her belly from ATL

When Henslee saw Hayden it was LOVE at first sight.

We really had a great time... the girls hung out talking (sorry Hayden) about what Lauren was going to need for her new baby. And the boys spent the day smoking some Ribs.. Lauren got Dave a smoker for Christmas so we all got to enjoy that gift... except our little vegan Hayden.

So when the ball dropped we were playing the boys vs girls knowledge game.. btw its not fair cause the guys questions are way easier than girls... But just about 10 seconds before it happened my little bug woke up and I was able to wish the new year in with Chad and Henslee in her room. It was sweet. I cannot wait for next year to see where we go and who all will be the new additions.
