Ashlyn and Her Babies

So Far This Week...

My #1 big helper Ashlyn!

Getting ready for his first "sink" bath...

Kittrell was all serious and stuff..

Daniel told Kittrell he had his Uncle Fraiser's hair. That didn't sit so well with Kittrell.

Always sleeping when I need him to be awake, and awake when I wish he'd take a nap!

Kittrell's First Trip to Greenwood!

Last weekend was spent back home in the delta. And I FINALLY have my other baby back! Ashlyn isn't allowed to leave me for 2 weeks at a time ever again. She has been the biggest help this week back home in Little Rock. I actually get my hair washed and my teeth brushed in the mornings now. And I actually get dressed- like I put on real clothes. It's so nice to be able to do that again! Thanks, Ashlyn! Back to last weekend- Kittrell got to meet some of our family and friends, and, of course, he slept the whole time. Also, we all finally got to meet Sofie!! She's so stinkin' cute! Daniel and I think Kittrell and Sofie look a lot alike. (So, that means they are both absolutely adorable!) AND Daniel and I snuck away for a couple of hours for a fabulous dinner at Lusco's with nothing but adults. It was great! We were able to keep with the "Daniel's birthday tradition" of eating at Lusco's and singing happy birthday. But seriously, that food is way too good to let an entire year slip by without eating there again. (Yep- it had been an entire year for us!) I can't wait to get back and visit again. With the fall wedding season fast approaching, we will be frequenting the delta a lot more. And since I can comfortably ride in a car again, we will definitely be back.

Really, Mom...

Ok, so he really wanted me to put the camera down and pick him up. And then he gave me one of those "really??" looks. So I just took more pictures. There is a small chance my son is a little spoiled.

On another note, 2 more days until I get my other baby back!! Ashlyn has been in Greenwood with her Meme for almost 2 weeks! Daniel and I are going crazy without her! And 2 more days until we get to meet the infamous Sofia Jayne- and see Kiki and Javier. It's going to be a fun weekend in the Delta! (And let's not forget Daniel's birthday Saturday... he's getting old...)

Of Course, More Baby Pics...

Here's Kittrell enjoying the British Open this past weekend. Nothing against the Viking Classic, but yes, it was kind of boring to watch. If mama has to watch golf, she would prefer people make the easy shots.

And Kittrell ALMOST let Mama and Daddy finish dinner last night before he started screaming to be held some more... he loves his Daddy!

1 week!

I can't believe my baby boy is one week old today. It seems like this week has flown by! Time, please slow down!

Beginning our life at home...

Abel and Marina are two jealous babies! They have been forced to play with each other since we brought this new baby home who takes up all of our time .. Daniel and I caught them being sweet!

Thank you, Amber, for the gift!! Kittrell loves his new sleeper/seat!!

Kittrell didn't hate his sponge bath, but he didn't necessarily like it, either!

He loves being wrapped up in his towel!

Sporting our souvenier shirt from the hospital!

Daniel and I are loving getting Kittrell adjusted to life at our house. I'm sooo glad Daniel gets to stay home with us this week- He is the best Daddy!

Kittrell Barner Smith

Kittrell Barner Smith
12:45 a.m.
7 pounds
19 1/2 inches long
Absolutely beautiful!

Kittrell was in quite a hurry to get here- must have thought mama didn't need any pain meds before the big delivery! (I really wish he would have asked my opinion, though, first...) Daniel and I had quite the experience getting this little guy here, but it was worth every minute! He's perfect!

I'll be back with more pictures and posts after I sleep for about 2 weeks!

Extra Large Veggies and Friendship

Our garden is doing quite well. We have enough pickles canned to feed an army, and a freezer getting full of veggies. After missing just one day (or maybe it was 2- I can't remember) of picking veggies in the garden plus a huge thunderstorm with tons of rain, this is what Daniel found. Wow.

I'm also happy to share that Marina Katie Funcat and Abel are finally friends! He no longer tries to eat her, and she no longer screams when he comes around. She does, however, still bark at him occasionally.

Good News...

After weeks and weeks of waiting, we are finally having our little boy this weekend! Daniel and I are heading to the hospital early Friday morning to get everything started. And then we wait... even more. But- this weekend is the weekend! I'm so happy that both my mom and dad are home- they get to be in charge of Ashlyn, who can't wait to spend a lot of time at the hospital. Actually, I think she is more excited about having her own money for the vending machines while at the hospital, rather than actually being at the hospital waiting. Anywho- I couldn't wait to share the news!! If you need me this weekend, that's where I'll be. I can't wait to share pictures!! I'm off to clean my house from top to bottom one last time... and to sleep as much as I can between now and Friday morning. Wish us luck!!

Happy July 4th People!

-Playing in the pool as long as we can...

-Vegetable tray, sausage and cheese plate, drunk chicken, potato salad and pasta salad... (I think I just gained 5 more pounds typing all that out)

-Ashlyn's beautifully decorated 4th of July cake... who was I to say no, we can't have cake?!

-A beautiful day today!

-Fireworks tonight! (Small fireworks- like sparklers- not trying to burn down our pasture...)

-A Smith/Upchurch family fun party... we know how to have fun at our house!

Happy 4th of July!!! Have a great day!! (Sweet Ashlyn keeps asking me, "Is Kittrell ready yet?" I have assured her that I think he's going to let us have our party today... I hope so! She is soooo excited!)

It's Friday!!

Mickey Mouse pancakes for Ash for breakfast.

My fear of flying just got worse after watching the news- so this guy gets stung by a scorpion on his flight??!! No, thank you!

Definitely spending some time in the pool today- it is going to get HOT!

Got to make my morning walk around the property. (Like what I did there? I called our yard property to make it sound bigger and make myself sound richer.)


Time to get a spray bottle for the cat. Marina Katie Funcat is about to get soaked every time her claws come out.

Daniel gets home from work early today to play! Yay!

Happy Friday!

What? Did you think I didn't have a picture? Ha. Of course I have a new picture of my beautiful niece! Can I get an AWWWW????
