somebody's smiling!

Archer is 7 weeks old today, and yesterday he started grinning for the first time! Here are a few pictures I caught of him...he is getting so big and is a GREAT baby. I can't believe he's almost 2 months old already.

And here's Brody yesterday before church. I couldn't get him to smile for some reason.
He loves pants with "pockets" and gets really excited when he realizes they have them. So he walked around the house just like this until we left for church. How funny!

Brody's summer

I'm playing catch up with some pictures from summer. Here's what Brody has been up to...and every picture is outside if you notice. The kid would live outside if we'd let him...

He went on his first golf trip with Daddy and Coach. Now everytime we go through the neighborhood he tells me he wants to play golf and hit the ball off the tee!

He also got a "Harley" from Gigi when she was in town. It is SO hot in Houston right now but we go out anytime we can to play on it

We also have a few neighborhood pools he has been to LOTS. It has been so great to have them. This one is actually right across the road and we can see it from our front yard. Again, everytime we go past it he says he wants to go to the pool :)
(He kindof looks like a little frat boy with his sunglasses hanging on his neck, and I cannot get these things away from him. They actually have just about ripped to shreds and will be "disappearing" soon)

And last but not least the "big" neighborhood pool. This one keeps him entertained for hours!
(again you might not be able to see it, but, sunglasses hanging on neck---check)

So that's about it, other than being a SWEET big brother!!!

my "little Brads"

Brad's parents have a neighbor who does photography and asked if she could take pictures of Archer and Brody for her portfolio- so of course I said yes! Here are some of the sweet pictures. Please excuse the bare booty...hopefully Archer will forgive me someday for posting it :)
Archer looks JUST like Brad even at 10 days old!

quiet trees

I love nature, and I've always loved big, full shady trees. They are especially beautiful during the fall (which I cannot wait for!) when the leaves change. Here are some of my favorites...

Happy Fourth of July!

Today we dressed the boys up in their red, white, and blue and headed to the 4th of July parade with Brad's parents in The Woodlands. Brody LOVED it, and Archer snoozed through the whole thing. Luckily a big rain had come through yesterday so it wasn't quite as hot as it has been here lately, but it was still pretty sauna-ish.

Here is sweet Archer. I can't believe he will be one month old this week! (and yes- he is in the same bassinet thingy in this picture. He spends a lot of time in there. One of my favorite purchases!)

after the parade...looking EXHAUSTED and hot
