Catching Up..


 Our SUPER BUSY summer started way back in May! And honestly, I haven't caught up yet! One of the main events that happened in May was when Taylor and Tyler graduated from Auburn University!! We are so proud of them for working so hard and getting their work done! Here are just a few pictures of our trip down to the Friendliest Village.
Our Entire Family at the Ham Wilson Livestock Arena the morning of Graduation. They have an Ag Breakfast where they teach you to make omelets and make several presentations to Outstanding Students. This was a really fun time for all of us to celebrate Taylor and Tyler's Graduation Day!
The Graduates!




The Entire Family again after graduation. Boy was it hot outside!! Fearing slept through almost the ENTIRE ceremony! He was such a trooper! We finished graduation day off at the Todd's house eating one of our favorites...Ribeye Sandwiches-Courtesy of Mr. Phillip who makes an AWESOME ribeye sandwich. It was so bittersweet for us because Katy Beth was leaving Auburn for the real world and this was our last "Weldon-Todd" Family dinner at  Katy's place! (Fearing spent his first football season at Katy Beth's with Mrs. Beth and Mr. Phillip and then everyone would end up there for dinner after the ballgame. Those are some of our sweetest memories and we will treasure them forever!

We finished Graduation weekend off with an Auburn Baseball game on Sunday. It was a lot of fun despite that fact that it was 100 degrees outside!
We were So excited to get some pictures made with Our FAVORITE!! Aubie!


Fearing LOVED Aubie once again and we got a really cute picture of just the two of them!

We Love Aubie!

Happy Birthday!

Today is one of my dearest friends 27th birthday!! I have some really awesome pictures of us with our boys from a few months ago....but they are not with me! So all I could find at work was this picture of us with Fearing when he was 5 wks old and made his first trip to one of our favorite places...Auburn!

I love you sweet friend. You are the best friend a girl could ask for!

Where I have been...

I know I have been MIA for months (yes, that is plural) now. I really have no good excuses except that I have one VERY busy little boy! Also, my mom, aunt, cousin and I have started our own business. And boy is that A LOT of work!! Yes, work is good but that means it leaves me very little time to do anything other than work and take care of my boys. A quick update on the gang, we are still holding down the fort with my sweet parents, but for a different reason now. We are in the process of working out all of the exciting details for an addition on our house. This has come after much thought and prayer from Beau and myself. We were so torn when it came to selling our little cottage in "tiny town" we LOVE our house. We didn't however love the drive to downtown. But, we feel like we are willing to take the good with the bad and we are REALLY excited about this new adventure for our little family.
In other news, Fearing is doing REALLY well. He has not had any problems with his ears since tubes! Praise the Lord! He did however have a run-in (a 7 day run-in) with the "fever virus" Bless your soul if you have ever had a bout with that...it was horrible. That was over Memorial Day weekend which caused us to miss our sweet friends beach wedding! But luckily Fearing bounced back fairly quick from that!
Speaking of bouncing back... This is really why I have not blogged...I spend all day chasing this!! Fearing is WALKING!! He took his first 'real' steps a few days after his 10 month birthday (June 4). I caught a little bit of it on my iphone (love it, can't remember life before it!). We had a feeling he would be an early walker but I really don't think I was prepared for this! It is exciting, scary and sad all rolled up into one! (Sad because his little life is going by SO fast!). This was right around a month ago so as you can imagine he is much faster and stronger than in the video. I thought I would share for those who want to see. Hoping to be back with a whole bunch of pictures soon!

Fearing's First Easter

I am really behind on posting about Fearing's first Easter Sunday. It really could not have been ANY better! We had such a beautiful day with gorgeous spring weather. It was a day full to the brim! I worked really hard on Fearing's Easter outfit. I did my first "French Hand Sewn" project and I could not be any happier with the outcome. It was overwhelming and frustrating at times but it turned out just how I hoped it would.  Here are just a few pictures from our day.

When Aunt Syd comes home....

She ALWAYS has a photo shoot with Fearing!

She is such a great aunt and when she comes home his little feet don't hit the ground! She scoops him up as soon as she gets here and he is mesmerized by her the entire weekend!! Fearing loves playing with her pretty hair, and he gives her the funniest smiles! EVER!! It makes my heart smile to know that my sisters(all of them!)  love my baby as much as they do.

Lately, we have LOVED skyping with them in Auburn too! It is really funny to see through their eyes how much Fearing changes from week to week. When he first started crawling I put the computer on the ground and accross the room from Fearing and he went tearing toward the computer as fast as he could... his audience on the other side of the screen cheered for him..and it was so much fun!!
We are REALLY looking forward to Easter because everyone will be home together for the first time since Christmas!! Even Uncle Tyler! This next week we are going to Auburn to stay with Aunt Cindy and Aunt Tater and we can't wait!! It is going to loads of fun packed out with LOTS of fun events!

Aunt Cindy teaching me how to play the drums with the old pots and pans and wooden spoons!

***By the way we REALLY miss Aunt Tater too! We can't wait to see you this weekend!

Tubes...

This is last Thursday morning around 5:30 AM. We were Already at St. Vincents getting ready for Fearing to get tubes in his little ears. WOW was that an early morning. He woke up around 2:30 screaming so I picked him up and held him until 3:45 when I had to get up anyway. I got up got ready and then got Beau up since we had to be at the hospital at 5am for his surgery. I won't lie I was scared that they would have to put my baby to sleep...but Dr. Wag. made a good point, it was probably no more harmful than all of the  antibiotics he has already had to be on.
I was shocked Fearing was as happy as he seemed to be. We had to pick him up out of bed and take him to the hospital with NO food or drink...I'm not going to lie about that either. But he seemed to do great.
I don't know why I didn't think to take my camera! But lucky us Daddy has an AWESOME iphone that Mommy really wants takes pretty good pics! I could NOT resist my sweet baby in this tiny gown!

Of course we had to get a 'rear view' photo too.

The closer we got to 6:30 the more ancy someone Beau Fearing became.So we had to do lots of walking, singing and funny faces to keep his mind off the fact that he was probably hungry.

Wonder why Beau looks so tired?

This picture is quite grainy but he finally got extremely sleepy and stayed asleep when the nurse took him from me to go to the O.R.

They kept telling us it was a VERY quick procedure but I don't think either of us were expecting THAT quick!! Literally 20 minutes after they took him from us they called us into the meeting room for Dr. Waguespack to come and talk to us. As soon as we got in the little room I heard them waking Fearing up ( I could hear him crying from where we were) He explained to us how the surgery went and then just a few minutes later they let us go back into the recovery room (Beau and I were headed back there when they came to get us...we could hear him crying and we could not take it!) Once we got back there he was quite ticked off (which we were told to expect) mainly because he was HUNGRY!! All we could give him was juice until we got him home...which needless to say was an awful ride! BUT, once we got home and he got some food in his little belly he was perfect. He was SO happy all day and he actually took a 3 1/2 hour nap (the longest one he had in over 1 month!! thanks to those mean ole' ears!) and so far he seems to be doing great.
