Happy Birthday America

This year the fourth was so much fun. This time last year we had just found out we were pregnant. This year we had our little love. We went to the lake to enjoy the festivities. We started it off the evening before with a sunset cruise Captained by Uncle Patchy. The next day the whole family headed up to the lake for a day of fun in the sun and lots of food. We all ate and ate and ate then went for a swim. Unfortunately mother nature wanted us to take a break from all the fun and blew in a little storm. Thankfully it was short lived. Just long enough for Keegan to take a little nap and be ready for more! After the storm blew over we went for a nice long boat ride. There is nothing better than a long pontoon ride for a nice sumer time treat. After our  boat ride it was time to head back in and get ready to head to Birmingham for the fire works. My sweet cousin allowed us to come to her house so we could just walk up the road to watch them. Keegan was in absolute amazement. I had wondered what he would think of them, if they may scare him or if he would even care. Well, we were far enough away that they were not too loud and he just watched in amazement. It was so fun to watch. I love to see him experience things for the first time.

Chi Town with little love...

Keegan went on his first air plane trip to Chicago. I was worked up over him on an airplane and of course he was a little rockstar! Even with our less than ideal travel. We had lots of delays, but after a very late night we made it to the  hotel. The next morning we woke up to big family breakfast. We were in town for a wedding so there were lots of Keeley's, some I had not even met. They were also very excited to see the newest Keeley! It was fun to meet everyone and introduce them to our sweet baby boy! The wedding was beautiful and the reception was wonderful with yummy food. Unfortunately, Keegan was done. After a late night the night before he was ready to head back to the hotel and get some rest. 

The next day we headed over to Sean's Aunt and Uncles for brunch. They had 6 dozen doughnuts! They were so yummy. Keegan enjoyed getting passed around and loved on by all the relatives. 

Or time went to quickly and it was time for Sean's parents to drive us into the city where we would be staying the night to explore. We said our goodbyes and headed out to the Navy Pier. We had fun walking up and down looking at all the sights. We wanted to take Keegan in the fairs wheel he was getting a little fussy but we decided to go anyways. We stood in line and right before you get on they take your picture. Keegan stopped fussing long enough for us to have picture taken then went fast asleep for the rest of the ride. Oh well, we know he was there and have pictures to show him later! After that we headed back to the hotel to rest and get ready for dinner. We walked to the bean and on our way there Keegan went to sleep yet again missing another one of the attractions. We are such boring people we went to the same restaurant that we went to two years ago when we were there. It was still good Sean and I are just boring. One the walk back Keegan was in absolute amazement. All the lights and sounds he could not stop looking around. It was so much fun to see him expensive it all for the first time. The next day we wanted to do a architectural tour on the river. We walked over and got on board.  He started fussing and we thought oh no should we get off? We decided he would be fine and stayed on. Good thing because he went fast asleep. Sleeping through yet again attraction! It was beautiful. Chicago is such a beautiful city with the water and all the different types of buildings. Once we were done we headed back to the hotel to pack and order some deep dish Chicago style pizza, yummy! Then it was time to head home. It was such a great trip and made wonderful memories! 

4 month old Keegan

I know he is mine but please look how adorable this little man is! He is such a joy.
So, it has been a while since I have updated and lots has happened. We have been on two air plane trips and one road trip. Keegan turned 4 months, is rolling over, has found his toes, wants to sit up very bad, and is trying to crawl! I can't believe all that he is doing. I miss the baby stage but he is so much fun now and it just gets better every day.  Oh he also will belly laugh! It is the greatest noise in the entire world! He has been making such fun talking noises. He is such a joy! I am going to try to get caught up on all that we have done so I don't forget anything! Until then I leave you with this little guy!

Keegan turns 3 months

I know I continue to say it but where does the time go. Keegan turned three months old on Tuesday and I can not believe it. He is changing so fast. His ohhhs and choos now make whole sentences and he is just a happy baby. He is pretty much always happy unless he is getting sleepy or we try to put him in his car seat. This new trick of HATING his car seat is not a fun stage. We have no idea why he is so against to ridding in his car seat. He is fine if you are carrying him in it but as soon as you stop moving or put him in the car he loses his mind. Needless to say car rides right now are not so fun. We have tried everything toys, songs, me sitting back there with him, Sean sitting back there, we even went as far to buy a new car seat. So far no luck. Hopefully it will pass. Here are some photos I took of him and his big boy self!

It's Your Birthday

Happy Birthday to the most wonderful man in the world! I am so glad that God decided to put you on this  Earth 27 years ago. You are my other half, my better half. I have enjoyed ever year that we have spent together and I am so happy that we get to spend the rest of out lives together. Our family was perfect when it was just you and I, but now that we have added Keegan to the mix it has only gotten better. You are an amazing dad and you just blow me away with your capacity to love and do all that you do for both of us. You are such a great provider. We sure do miss you when you are gone because you are such a crucial part of us. It is so nice to have our whole family here under one roof. Keegan loves you so much he lights up when you sees your face and hears your voice. I hope he follows in his Daddy's footsteps and becomes the kind of man that you are today. I hope that you have the best birthday ever. I am so blessed to be able to share your day with you. I hope it is all you hoped it would be. We love you! Happy Birthday!

Mother's Day

I am so blessed to be Keegan's mom. He is the best thing that has every happened to me and I love him more than words could even express. I have always know that I wanted to be a mom but I never knew how much I would love it. I am so fortunate to be able to stay home with him and enjoy him all the time. Now do not get me wrong, sometimes it is hard and I get tired and cranky just like he does,but then he smiles with his whole body and my heart melts. I am blessed to have such a sweet angel.

Just as I am lucky to be a mom I am l blessed to have to best mom. She is my best friend and I am able to go to her with all of my problems. We have always been close sometimes we may not see eye to eye but we are always close. She has been such a tremendous help with Keegan. She loves him so much and loves to spoil him rotten just what grandmuthers do!
