We had a great Easter. Papa, GIGI, Joshua and Gaines flew in to see us. We went to church and then headed to the airport to pick them up. Papa had recently gotten his pilot license (as I am writing this blog so has uncle Joshua) and so they got a plane to make quick trips and we were the first stop on


Isnt this the cutest picture of Chad and Henslee?!

We had a great visit and lunch and then back to the airport to see them take off. By the time we got home from the airport they were already landed and back in Knoxville. Pretty awesome. Just you wont be seeing me or HHH on that thing anytime soon :)

We are still really proud of Papa and Joshua for getting their Pilot License!!

Catching up...

So much has happened in the last few months. Henslee went from 6 months to 7 months to now 8 months old. We went to Destin, visited Chad's grandparents and Easter. So I have a lot to catch up on.

First off 7 months old... yay to HHH unfortunately on her 7 month bday she had pink eye.

Poor little Henslee

She was such a little trooper! 

But at 7 months you are finally sleeping through the night!! You are not crawling yet and have got 5 teeth in your tiny little mouth. You are constantly chewing on something or someone. You are sitting up and trying desperately to pull up on anything you can get your hands on.

You have been battling ear infections non stop so we are trying to get you on an antibiotic to cure your little ears. Still your favorite thing to do is read books and scream at Bella

You have now officially gone on your first beach vacation to DESTIN!! On our way to Destin you met your maw maw and paw paw (chad's grandparents)

Maw maw took her strolling and made her some yummy bananas sweet potatoes and squash

We had such a great time.. it was too short so we look forward to visiting them again soon!

NOW off to DESTIN!!
such a little thing requires way too much stuff!!

We went with Papa and Gigi and Uncle Josh and Gaines! We had the best time. While we were there you started to dance in your seat. You LOVE the pool, sand, and Ocean. You are not so great about letting me put a hat on you in the sun but you were great with all the sunscreen! We were so happy you slept  well considering the different surrounding and cutting 2 more teeth!

 First time toes in the sand

 You are looking so lovingly like at your papa
 This is your new favorite toy

 loved loved the pool so I cannot wait for really warm weather this summer and more pool time!

First day was  St. Patricks Day and when we got there GIGI had a cute bib for HHH to enjoy her lunch

What a view from the condo

We had a great time and ate at a lot of great restaurants some more photos of our trip

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.
