those who love us

i am so thankful to have been raised by my mama. she has endured so many trials in her lifetime and because of her undying faith, she always comes out ahead.

her incredible strength, wisdom, and guidance are gifts from God. i hope that i will be the mommy to perry that my own mama has been to me.

i don't think that we really realize how much our mothers mean to us until we become mommies ourselves. we also have no idea how much we need them! perry's chelle is on speed dial and has received many calls a day for help over the past 8 1/2 months. don't know what we would do without her!

our little girl has blessed my life in incredible ways in her very short lifetime.
her daddy honored me this weekend with breakfast (pancakes and biscuits), a sweet gift basket (put together by mr. b himself!), and the best card.
i can't remember what life was like before i met that guy.
my memory is even a little blurry of the time before miss p came along!

we miss you and love you chelle! can't wait to spend a few days with you!
happy mother's day to all of the mommies, grandmommies
& to those that love and act as mommies!

rain, rain

we have had several days of glorious rain. mr. b and i sat outside on wednesday evening and watched it pour. it was a sight i know we will miss in just a few weeks.
while it is much needed, i am officially about to lose my mind.

while playing inside, little girl and i are working on her crawling skillz. she pretty much refuses to do anything but roll around... or cry when i put her down...

but she loves to watch it rain!

have a wonderful weekend. hope it's filled with many blessings!

getting big

our baby girl is growing so fast.
she prefers this swing...

to this one!
i know that there will be many more changes to come (very quickly)
but the swing has been with us from the very beginning.
i wasn't quite ready to see it go!
it's amazing how the littlest things can rock your mommy world!

sing over me

a few months ago, when perry was really small, i noticed that she responded really well to praise music. i would constantly do my best kari jobe impression and sing the revelation song - for awhile, it was the only song that she would fall asleep to. she perks up during worship at church, and now she "sings" along on sunday mornings. to be honest, it warms my heart greatly that my baby girl loves music as much as her mama, but even more, i'm thrilled that she seems to prefer the sweet songs that we sing to our Lord.
a few days ago, my precious friend and new mama lindsay, introduced us to Sing over Me.

it's a beautiful cd filled with worship songs and lullabies that bring peace to both mommy and baby. i was looking for that perfect cd, and after other great suggestions from friends, this one tops our list.

 wednesday of last week, the high was 104. ridiculous texas, ridiculous april.
i had a super long to-do list but during the am nap time
(yes, PLB has been taking MORNING naps, praise the Lord!)
i decided that we needed a plastic pool.
she loves it!

while in sulphur springs this past weekend, perry got a feel for the big pool!

sweet girl had a wonderful time! she also scarfed ate some of chelle's potato salad...
hehe our little girl LOVES her food and will eat pretty much anything!

yesterday, she took a quick dip...
i am blessed beyond measure!

i have a little helper when i make the bed.
she's the sweetest, prettiest sidekick that i could have ever imagined...

she's so happy;

and makes my heart melt almost every second of the day!
i love my little helper!
