I have an infatuation with you sweet boy! You are more precious with each passing day. I want to bottle this age up so much from your chunky legs to cuddles to smiling every time I look at you. You are my precious boy!

Dixon’s 8th Month

I am trying to understand how in 4 short months we will have a ONE year old. When did this happen? Dixon is getting so big and cuter by the minute. We can never get enough of him.CD9A6885CD9A6890CD9A6892Dixon has been becoming more and more independent this month.

Changing his diaper or putting clothes on is like fighting a war. Teething has been hard on him. His top two teeth are trying to come through. He eats oatmeal in the morning and a fruit or veggie in the evening. We let him try table foods often such as bananas, avocado, beans, sweet potato, brownie, coke, pickles, chicken, ice cream, donuts, lemons, crackers, popsicle and tomatoes. In one day he crawled, sat up and pulled up. He can only be held if you walk around with him. Unless it’s at night, he turns into quite the cuddle bug. He seems so happy though. His smile shows up all the time. He’s become very vocal and loves hearing himself. He has a few more rolls and thicker hair. He can fall asleep in a car before you get out of the driveway. He’s very observant and always has been. For example, riding in a vehicle, he can see us in the mirror when we turn around. Every time he finds us in the mirror he giggles and smiles as big as he can. I don’t think he can get more precious. I could eat him up daily!

Dixon’s 7th Month

It’s hard to believe, but we are on the downhill to one. Our butter ball is 7 months old and full of smiles, still not sleeping through the night, becoming quite the wiggle worm and has two toofies! CD9A5741 CD9A5742 CD9A5745 Dixon had an adventurous month!

IMG_2287

I feel like Dixon is changing so much this month. He no longer likes being on his back. He has to be moving squirming constantly. He tries to talk all the time. My favorite thing is how smiley he is. Every time he makes eye contact with you, his big grin lights up the room. He is still a good cuddle bear when he’s sleepy. He eats like no other.  Not only is he eating baby food twice a day, but he hasn’t slowed down his milk intake. He still longs for a bottle around 3am and I just can’t let him cry it out. I hear is tummy growl and quickly hand him a bottle. Speaking of bottle, he can hold it! This has been a huge help. Especially on road trips. I no longer have to pull over to feed him. I’m pretty sure once he starts sleeping though the night that I’ll think this whole kid thing is easy. Right? He is such a good baby and brings so much happiness into our household and lives. I am starting to forget what life was like without him.

My 1st Mom’s Day

Mother’s Day could possibly be one of my favorite holidays! Mom’s deserve all the praise and love in the world, and it’s great to see each of you get recognized for it.

My 1st Mother’s Day was everything! I spent the day with my boys enjoying a picnic and then a crawfish boil. It started with my tiny love who had my favorite flowers, peonies! David said Dixon was worried sick about getting them to me.
CD9A8698 Then we headed to Fontainebleau State Park for a picnic after a quick run through Popeyes. Fried chicken and sweet tea are the way to my soul food loving heart!CD9A8701We found the perfect spot amidst the cypress trees on the beach.
CD9A8703 The weather was perfection and Dixon was taking it all in.CD9A8711 CD9A8712 CD9A8713 CD9A8715 CD9A8716 CD9A8720 CD9A8726 He liked how the sand felt under the blanket. CD9A8728 CD9A8731 CD9A8733 CD9A8736 CD9A8738 CD9A8740 My boys. CD9A8749 CD9A8753 CD9A8754 This pretty much sums it up.CD9A8760 Then we ventured into the water.CD9A8764 CD9A8765 Dixon loved getting his piggies wet.CD9A8766 CD9A8768 CD9A8769 CD9A8772 Until that chilly wave behind him crept up his back.CD9A8777 CD9A8781He recovered nicely, but wasn’t letting another wave get him on his watch.
CD9A8782 CD9A8783 CD9A8790 CD9A8792After spending time just the three of us, we headed to Aunt Sarah and Uncle Trevor’s house for a crawfish boil with my Hammond family.
CD9A8794 CD9A8796 No crawfish stood a chance with these two.CD9A8801 It was a happy afternoon filled with sunshine, food and conversation.CD9A8803 CD9A8806 CD9A8808 CD9A8815 CD9A8825 Trevor and Sarah put on a delicious boil! CD9A8827 CD9A8830 CD9A8833 CD9A8835 CD9A8836 CD9A8837 CD9A8839 CD9A8840 CD9A8841I am honored to share a day with these women!
CD9A8843 CD9A8844 And Dixon is loved beyond measure..CD9A8854CD9A8857 CD9A8859 CD9A8862 CD9A8865 The little one was wore out! CD9A8867David also found the cure for teething…CD9A8869 CD9A8875It was everything my heart needed! Thanks to David and everyone else for making it one that I will never forget!

Different Types of Mom’s

Tomorrow is my very first official Mother’s Day. They say. I have had so many thoughts about what makes you a Mom. Sure I carried and had my precious baby boy, but Motherhood started before I even met him.View More: http://ltassinphoto.pass.us/nicole-mm-The Conceiving Mom

I believe when a woman makes the decision that she is ready to become a mother that she is a mom. Let me explain. Last year David and I decided we would try to conceive and grow our family. In that moment of conception mommy instincts begin. You are reading and doing just about every possibility there is to get pregnant. Whether you are pregnant or not, you become selfless to make sure your body is doing it’s absolute best to carry your child. There are ups and downs and disappointments and triumphs sometimes. I can’t even imagine what some women have endured and the want and need of having a baby which makes you a great mother in itself. IMG_4886

-The Pregnant Mom

Once you are pregnant, the anxiety is even worse. Every doctor’s appointment you are scared to death that something could possibly be wrong. It could be no heart beat, a birth defect, measuring wrong, you’ve gained too much or too little, gestational diabetes, little fluid, or your body might not do something right. There’s so many things that can go wrong that it’s a miracle to me that so many babies come into this world.

Savannah Kate Photography45– The Mom

She has made it to the finish line by some miracle and is tired and covered in a mystery stain and sticky kisses. To be able to mother a child is the best/worst gift you could ever receive. When leaving the hospital, I was surprised they were sending me into the world with him with no instructions. It really is true though.. You figure it out and it is the sweetest adventure that ever existed. Life had not started for me until Dixon arrived, and it has been a beautiful ride thus far.
View More: http://ltassinphoto.pass.us/nicole-mm-The Step Mom

When a woman can love someone else’s children as if they are her own, that is motherhood. I believe my dad finally got it right with mine. She gained 5 kiddos and became a grandmother JJ way too soon, and she loves each of us dearly. She also makes an exceptional shopping partner and loves her grandbabies. _DSC6902IMG_2961-The Mother-In-Law

I hit the jackpot of all mother-in-laws. I have heard stories of some scary ones, but mine is far from it. She has made me feel like a daughter and loves her grandson beyond words. Especially living away from home, she has gone above and beyond to make sure we are always taken care of. She hurts when we hurt and celebrates in our accomplishments. I will never forget when I was told that I needed to have a c section and she came over to me, fighting back any emotion and grabbed my hand and said, “It’s going to be ok.” She is sometimes strong for me when I am weak. _DSC7952CD9A7670-Your Mom

I never fully understood the sacrifice a mother makes until I became one. I didn’t realize just how much my mom truly loves me until I experienced that love on my own. It’s love at first sight and wanting nothing but the best for your child. It’s doing your absolute best to make sure they are raised right and given all the opportunities they deserve. It’s sleepless nights and worry and guilt. It’s carrying about someone more than you care about yourself. True, unconditional love is what it is and it’s the sweetest gift God ever made. Mom, I cannot ever thank you enough for all the sacrifices you made to help me grow and become the woman I am today. I don’t know what I would do without you on my side. _DSC8173

CD9A7661-The Other Moms (Dad, Grandmother, Aunt, whoever)

Someone out there had a hand in raising you and loving you. They deserve extra love for taking you in because they love you.

To all the Mother’s out there CHEERS to MOTHERHOOD.

Make your day worth it because you deserve it. Celebrate the tiredness, the poopy diapers, and the hours and hours of screams and tantrums, but also the things that make it worth while. There is absolutely nothing better than hearing the first heart beat, seeing those tiny toes, heart-melting snuggles, and being called “Mom”. For being there in every moment, both good and bad. We are worth more than a day. But if we get one day, we should make it worth it. Here’s to the women around the world who put others before themselves and love with their whole hearts. You’re an absolute inspiration.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO DIXON!!

Dixon’s 5th Month

5 months came and went by way to fast! newbornto5month

I don’t know if we are having way to much fun or if the lack of sleep makes it pass by faster. Either way each day gets better and better. His little personality shows up more and more and he just keeps growing so big. He had a couple of first this month and grew a whole 2 inches. Our love for Dixon grows with him.

Dixon’s 4th Month

Our little nugget is 4 months old! How is that possible? As tired as I am it has gone by way to fast. I swear he gets bigger through the night sometimes. He has tried a nibble of chocolate, butter, and icing and starting cutting his first tooth. This month has been eventful! CD9A2860CD9A2863CD9A2870

We were getting close and then teething happened. He talks all the time and is very observant. I love when he gets vocal. He tries so hard to tell me all about his day. He tried cereal for the first time and wasn’t sure about the texture and swallowing. He has been extra cuddly this month which I absolutely adore. I might spoil him rotten, but I know this won’t last forever. I do believe teething is worst than shots. I feel so bad for him that I will do anything to take his pain away. On those days that he smiles extra big or nights that I don’t think that I can wake up, I see that grin and all concerns are forgotten. He is my world and I absolutely love being his mama.
