Visiting with Jansen Rae Rutledge

Last week we met our friends Courtney and Justin and their new precious addition Jansen Rae!  Crawford did so good and he even offered her his crayons and did not even cry when I held her. Jansen is so adorable! I can’t wait until she gets a little bigger and can play with Crawford! It won’t be long!! We look forward to many more dates!

Jacob and I had a great time visiting with everyone and Mimi joined us and enjoyed watching Crawford play with friends! Ella was too cute! As she opened a gift she said “oh so cute”!

Happy Father’s Day

We spent Father’s Day at the doctors office! This post is a week late because poor Crawford has been sick for the past week! We spent Mother’s Day last year in the doctors office and Father’s Day this Year!

We just wanted to Wish Jacob and Pop Pop a Very Happy Father’s Day! They are the best in the World! Unfortunately since Crawford was sick and I have been exhausted I did not have any pictures on Father’s Days. Here are a few Recent of Jacob and Crawford and a not so recent of Pop Pop but  a favorite!


Crawford & Poppy2 

We Love you! Thanks for all that you do!!

Sick Day …. or Week

Last Wednesday I took Crawford to the doctor for what we thought was only an ear infection. He had a temperature of 103. We left and got worse rather than better, by Thursday night he had a temp. of 105, and never really got better through out the weekend. So….After having a fever for 5 days and going to the doctor 3 times, we went to see Dr. Alsup yesterday to get his opinion. He took one look and said Crawford’s tonsils look horrible! He took a strep test but so far it is negative. We are waiting a call tomorrow to see what it shows! Crawford was feverless today but very uncomfortable! I could see his tonsils and they are HUGE! Poor thing! He has not really ate in 4 days. We tried giving him this push up pop that he loved a few weekends ago….but I think it gave him brain freeze!! :-)

I have a lot of  to post I am behind on…..most importantly Father’s Day!! Promise to have it in the next few days! Although it was not too exciting since we spent it at the doctors office!! :-) I guess Crawford and Jacob did have quality time on Father’s day in the doctors office!


Oh Yeah…. and on an exciting note…..I got to meet Mr.. Ralph Lauren yesterday!! Well shake hands for like 1 second but it was still very exciting!!  Check back this week. I plan on catching up on my post!

Pool Time & 21 Months

Saturday we took Crawford to the pool. We had such a great time! Crawford played in the baby pool and the “Big” pool. The boys played golf while Crawford and the girls hung out by the pool.

Our little boy is 21 Months Old! Wow! Where has the time gone???? He is so much fun right now! However, every now and then the almost 2 comes out in him. Those moments are few and far between the good times! Crawford is learning so much. He still loves balls, trains, golf clubs, did I say balls, trucks, BUBBLES, books, his blanket (which he calls night night). He LOVES to be outside! He loves to ride on Grammy and Pop Pop’s golf cart! He loves for us to read him books. He is learning so much, he surprises us with something new every day! He says new words that we don’t even tell him, and words that we have tried and tried to get him to say…well….he is holding out on those for now! The word No is his most used word! He says it at least 100 times a day even if he doesn’t mean it. He says it so clear and loud and when he says yes he whispers it!

He gives the best kisses and hugs. He will just run up to me and give me a hug and pat my back! He loves to cuddle especially with mommy!! Yesterday when I dropped him off at school he gave me a kiss and ran off to play. While it is such a good feeling that he is so happy at school and that he does not care that I am leaving….it was all I could do to get out in the hall so he didn’t see me tear up! This afternoon when I picked him up he was in the hall playing…he looked up and saw me and ran into my arms! Oh what a good feeling after a long day at work! On our way home he says da.da…the entire time…for the entire 30 minute ride!

All I can say is this song by Darius Rucker is so true! I can’t believe how fast time is going by! I just want to hold on to these days forever! These times are so precious! We are having the time of our life! Crawford brings a smile to so many peoples face! We love him so much! In three short months he will be 2! Wow!! Turn off the music at the bottom of the page to listen if you haven't heard it (i am sure most have...but its still good to hear again)!

Tweetsie & Thomas

Jacob, Crawford and I went to Tweetsie with our friends Cory, Mandy and Ella. We had such a great time. There was so much to do there we could have stayed much longer however naps were needed by all of us! :-) Thomas the train has become Crawford’s favorite thing! So it was so exciting to take him to see Thomas! Below are a few pictures from our day of fun with Thomas and our friends!

Ella and Crawford holding hands (lasted only for a quick second but was too cute). They are playing in the water and loving it. They were both soaking wet by the end!

The next three pictures make me laugh. The first one Crawford is watching Ella eat the train wishing he had it. The next he is checking out his wondering if he can eat it! The third Ella let Crawford have a bite of her train! Tweetsie20090608_0012



What a long day but a FUN day! Crawford was asleep before we got on the main road home, but look he is still holding on to his Thomas Whistle!!

Visit with Uncle Ryan and WS Firefighters

  Uncle Ryan was working this past Saturday so Jacob and I took Crawford to see him and the Big Red Truck! Crawford LOVES trucks! Every time we pass one on the road he yells “TRUCK”. We had a good visit and then Crawford spotted the bounce house! He had a blast playing in it but I was paranoid the entire time. He was by far the youngest kid in it and all the other kids were walking all over him. I thought for sure he would get hurt. Little did I know he was not in the least bit scared. He crawled to the top and went down the slide. The top had to be over 10 feet. He was having so much fun and would not come out! Every time I would grab him to leave he would start crying. Finally we convinced him to go drive the fire truck!
