WOW!!! it’s june the 1st!! i can’t believe it! i can’t believe that dillon is halfway to a year. i can’t believe that he’ll start eating baby food next month. i can’t believe that he’ll be walking soon. i just can’t believe that we have a son that is getting bigger everyday and that we have another son/daughter on the way!! holy moley!! we had the opportunity to go to nashville last week for a quick visit. ben worked like a dog from memorial day until thursday at noon. i’m not kidding…i think he worked about 50 hours in 4 days. that man is amazing!! i would’ve given up and left it at 5. but ben isn’t like me, and we’re all thankful for that. he is SUCH a hard worker! so, while ben worked, dillon and i played! we did get to meet up with my good friend, ashley guinn davis (she writes for this online devotional from time to time). she was married last june and i had not seen her since then. it was SO good to get to talk to her! and of course she loved dillon 😉 sadly, i didn’t have my camera with me that day, so i did not get a picture of her and little man. anyway, we had a great time at fido’s and i can’t wait to see her again hopefully soon!
after seeing ashley, dillon and i made our way all the way around cool springs galleria. it took us three hours, and only about $40 later did we leave. i think that’s pretty good. 😉 then, we waited for ben to be done with VIP. we thought we’d get to go home, but we didn’t. he worked again until 2:30 am for the second night in a row. we did eat at this great irish pub in downtown franklin that really competes in my books with the irish rover in louisville. the pub is called mccreary’s. i HIGHLY recommend it. it was such a great atmosphere and some of the best food i’ve had in a while. so, we stayed another night in cool springs and then ben worked till about noon the next day. we stuck around and had a good time in nashville for the afternoon…ate at panera, drove around and looked at great neighborhoods, AND ran into our great friends, sheila and julian williamson! we were driving down 21st and i thought i saw their boys kicking the soccer ball around and thought, “that can’t be them.” but it WAS! so, we met up with them for coffee at fido’s (yes, the same place i met ashley) later on in the day and it was so great to see some great friends outside of jackson! we ALL needed it big time!
since we’ve been home, i’ve been really busy and ben has been busy with work. i had a wedding shower for a friend from high school on saturday, so it was a lot of fun to see old friends and catch up.
AND i had three friends that were pregnant and ALL due today, but they ALL had their babies early! i got a phone call from hannah on wednesday morning saying she was in the hospital, then i got a text from adam, leslie’s husband saying that they were being admitted to have their baby boy. well, our other friends, shelley and steven had been having contractions all week and they induced her yesterday! all three moms are healthy and all three babies are healthy! we have samuel trayner fields, weighing in at 8 lb 2 oz and 19 1/2 in (i think), then we have elijah marc lickey, weighing in at 8 lb 9 oz and 19 1/2 in, and then we have addison grace kennedy, weighing in at 6 lb 15 oz and 19 1/2 in. (all three same length!) i’m so glad that all my friends are having babies these days, too! i LOVE IT!! now, if hannah and leslie could just move to jackson, we’d be in good shape 😉
oh, yeah, while we were in franklin, dillon rolled over! YEA!!!! i had been waiting and waiting for this moment. he did it all on his own the first time when no one was in the room with him, then i did catch it on video the second time. it’s not like it was on his stomach…he doesn’t roll over everytime, but he is still doing it, so that’s so exciting! some of these other pics are from sunday night…we were just sitting at home having a little family time, so i thought i’d let you in on that. we love you all! can’t wait to see some of you in less than a week, grammy and paw paw! (and all the aunts :))
he looks so big in this picture!
