Magers Forever!

This past weekend I went away on a girls' weekend to celebrate my girl Lesley who is getting married this Summer.  It was my first time away from Baby Beau Beau and good news, we both survived! He was fed and watered and I had a blast with the girls!

The bride to be! 

The best thing about the whole weekend was spending time with the people who are friemily. You know. Friends who are family. The people who know you best. Laugh the hardest at your jokes and support you in everything you do. 

Best of the best. 

Dinner on Saturday night was so good! We followed up by seeing Divergent. We had good laughs all weekend about the movie, which was very much not a comedy so I am not sure what that means. 

Ladies Brunch the next morning. I can think of no better people to spend the weekend with and talk with and just have fun doing nothing too exciting with, but having the best time ever.

I cannot wait for Lesley and Brandon's wedding this Summer! I cannot think of two people who compliment each other more. I know they will live the best life together. Magers forever.

Beau Grows! And other thoughts.

March is flying by a world record pace. I heard through the grapevine that today is the first day of Spring! I for one CANNOT wait for pretty weather. I missed the sun this Winter. So come on Spring! Even if you bring the nasty pollen.

Speaking of things growing like crazy, our main man Beau is growing like a springtime weed! We went to the doctor on Tuesday, March 18 for his 6 month check-up. He handled his shots like a champ. Beau weighed in a 17 lbs. 11 oz. and 28" long!! With a 45.5 cm head haha. He is a BIG boy! He is officially bigger than I was at a year, and 1/2 my height now basically... We are gonna have to whoop that boy early and often. At this rate he may pass up his mama at age 3!  

Playing with his favorite buddy. Beau thinks that A is the COOLEST.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I mean. T-R-O-U-B-L-E!

Bubba and I were talking about how crazy fast time is flying by and how big Beau has gotten. I suppose everyone is telling the truth when they say that babies grow up way too fast. Now I sound like I am 85.  But it's true. I found some fun comparison pictures of B man. 

Doctor's Visits. Hospital, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months.

Chair in his room. 1 week (First LSU game), 1 month (Halloween), 3 months (Christmas), and 6 months (St. Paddy's Day)

Bath Time! (Not sure on ages, small to big!).

I cannot wait to do all sorts of fun outdoor things with Beau this Spring and Summer. I am literally COUNTING DOWN THE MINUTES to our beach trip in May. 

One last thing. Last night we went over to Will and Reba's for dinner with Nana Sue. We had an absolute blast hanging out. We watched the girls perform a Let it Go rendition. They each have quite the ability to perform. E singing "Let it Go" over and over with great passion was hilarious. Then when Uncle Bubba joined in, LIFE WAS MADE.

Here's to Spring!! Because the cold ABSOLUTELY bothered me. :)

6 Months! Woah!

Dear Beau, 

Happy 1/2 Birthday!! You are 6 months old! That is closer to 1 year old than the day you were born. You are the best baby these days! I really think 4 1/2-6 month stage is my favorite so far. You are just so stinking fun! 

You have lots of tricks these days. You like to play in your exersaucer. You love to laugh and smile. All the time. To anyone. Or anything. You LOVE Gertie and Gunnar. You watch them across the room and shake with excitement when they come play with you. You love your teachers at school. You LOVE LOVE LOVE eating. So far squash, pears, and sweet potatoes are your favorites. 

You are an okay roller. You possess the ability, but lack motivation. You basically are content so you just chill where you are at the moment. 

As pictured above, you and your paci have become BFF. As well as Sophie the Giraffe. I believe you may be cutting some teeth. I suppose only time will tell. 

William and you are so fun to watch together. You just crack each other up. You guys are big buds! 

You go to the doctor in a few weeks. We will know how big you are then my guess is huge and huge. You are in 9 month, 9-12 month clothing. 

Beau, I cannot wait to see what this month holds. You are a sweet boy. A silly boy. A sometimes mad boy, but rarely. And most of all you are our boy. We love you so. 

To the moon buddy.
