Get away dad, this is MINE.

I said I would never ever put a picture of my bare belly on any sort of Internet / social media / etc. So go ahead and make fun of me, I cringe at my own self. BUT I have to do it. Just look at this love. I think Nash already knows he may not like his little brother at times so he is getting in all the peace and quiet and controlling love that he can right now. The boy loves to give kisses to 'yo belly' and his momma.

'I like to help you make everything mom but I don't like to eat it all. Maybe dad will be so happy and surprised when I let him eat my vegetables.'

I just got back from a whirl-wind solo trip to California to visit with my sweet niece, Hannah! The flights were nice and long but thankfully everything went smoothly for this big pregnant lady. And let's face it, it was now or never for a visit! Hannah showed me a lovely time around San Jose, visiting her favorite eating (The Counter, Ike's, San Pedro Square Market ) and shopping (Willow Glen, Santana Row) spots. It was a great 'girls' trip.
Jackson was not too excited about my trip and made me promise next time I went to California he could go. Poor guys, while I was gone their Grandmama came and took the to the museum and Chic-fil-a and Jersey Mike's. Then they met their Tat-Tat and went to Wilson where they did 'special things' and went to Dinosaur Train Live! Then they did boy things with their dad like go to birthday parties and parks... I think they were excited to see me get home?!

Happy 2nd Birthday to the most handsome, sweet, crazy-smart TWO year old, Nash William! So many people love you more than you can ever imagine. Thanks for filling our lives with so much laughter. We celebrated with a few family and friends yesterday at Playnation. You had a wonderful time running around with everyone but you do not like people to wish you Happy Birthday or show you special attention. Your big bro is always close by to make sure you are OK.
Hey Nash are you ready for your cake?!!
Because I sure am!
Yeah I like cake!
Hmm, I think I have been tricked.
Yep! I told ya'll not to sing to me!

Saturday morning soul train with mom. I did not encourage this attire. In fact I would love it if they did not pull out everything in my closet. But boys will be boys…?
Turn this song up mom! They say 'talk doo-doo to me.' That's funny right?
Whoops, note to self, work on car music selection.
Who needs girls anyways.

Charlie and I headed to the Fearrington Inn for a mid-week stay-cation this week. We walked a lot (hello warmer weather!!), ate a lot of delicious food, and did some serious relaxing. I even talked Charlie in to getting a pedicure. He gets the hype now, don't let him tell your otherwise. Grandmama came and stayed with the boys, a vacation in itself for them. It was just what we all needed.

Baby boy needs a name! Since Jackson Arthur and Nash William are family names and to help us narrow down the choices, we are leaning towards another family name. We really like one but anytime I mention it to Jackson he says 'I thought our baby was a boy? That's a girls name mom.' He suggests Jake, Santa Clause, Tree and Jack. Nash suggest Hoppy-doo-dee. So yeah, we are still working on a name over here.
Just winding down before bath time.
