Sailer Boy?

Here is one of the pictures from Wyatt's photo shoot. :o)
I've never had his picture taken with a themed look, as soon as I have time, I'll get the other poses scanned and posted (and hand out the one's I got for the family).

It's Country

If anyone knows anything about me, they know I listen to mainly country music. Recently I've been listening to Sugarland a lot. Ok, call me a dork if you want, but I can relate to one song more than others. The name of the song is 'Stand Back Up'. This seems to be the story of my life. I get shot down, but I always end up back on my feet. My vicious cycle of life. The reality of my job in Branson ending is getting closer, just 3 weeks away. (yeah, it's on my mind ALL th time).

Here are the lyrics to the song:

Stand Back Up by Sugarland

Go ahead and take your best shot
Let her rip, give it all you’ve got
I’m laid out on the floor, But I’ve been here before
Yeah, I may stumble yeah, I might fall
I’m only human, but aren’t we all
I might loose my way, But hear me when I say

I will stand back up
You’ll know just the moment when I’ve had enough
Sometimes I’m afraid and I don’t feel that tough
But I’ll stand back up

I’ve been beaten up and bruised, yeah
And I’ve been kicked right off my shoes
Been down on my knees, more times than you’d believe

And when the darkness tries to get me,
There’s a light that just won’t let me
It might take my pride and tears may fill my eyes

But I’ll stand back up
I’ve weather all these storms but I just turn them into wind so I can fly
If what don’t kill ya makes you stronger,
when I take my last breath, that’s when I’ll just give up

So go ahead and take your best shot
Let her rip, give it all you’ve got
You might win this round
But you can’t keep me down
Cuz I’ll stand back up

And you’ll know just the moment when I’ve had enough
Sometimes I’m afraid and I don’t feel that tough
But I’ll stand back up

And you’ll know just the moment when I’ve had enough
Sometimes I’m afraid and I don’t feel that tough
But I’ll stand back up

I hope you have the opportunity to hear this, you will be touched by this song.

Enjoy your day!

Cowboy Cutie Pie

I know I surely can't be bias in saying I have the cutest cowboy ever! Ok, maybe he wasn't being a cowboy, he was actually trying to be a superhero with his blanket as a cape. And I get to get -n- give hugs and kisses everyday from this little man!

Good Morning!

Wyatt wanted his picture taken this morning, why? Because he's 3? How can I refuse this request? Last Saturday morning I took him to get his picture taken to a local studio in town. I needed his picture taken since it'd been way over a year since his last 'annual' picture. I justify the money to be spent with 'this may be the last time I can afford it in a while' next year, we'll probably go with K-Mart or something like that. The photographer put him in a nautical theme, a little boat, a hat (so Gilligan style). I got to pick out my package last night which will be one of those pictures that Wyatt will kill me when he's older (when I show his girlfriends how cute he was) but they really turned out very cute and this is a once in a lifetime I will do something like this. I'll scan one as soon as they are done. In the meantime, Wyatt has always been excited about taking pictures so here we are this morning, just as we were going out to the car. I so love this little man!

On my way to work, I can't help but think about how soon my 'good' job is ending. I've only had a few interviews and I have to remain optimistic considering somehow and God only knows, but things will work out in the end. So as I am driving, I see this truck and wished I had a little Elfin Magic of my own. Maybe if I call the number?

More Oldies but Goodies

First time "Granny" got to
hold Wyatt, of course she
had to be supervised by our
little professional

Not a surprise, more
slobber! Wyatt was 2.

Getting to eat his own
all by himself!

I must have said something
odd, but what? He's only
6 mos old.

Just so darn cute!

This is him stuck trying to crawl through his leapfrog, he always like crawling under and through things, still does.

When you know he LOVES his Christmas present!

I guess it was nap time.

His first look at a frog at the Zoo on his 1st birthday, he wasn't too sure about it.

This is what happens when your daughter takes your picture and you don't know it.

This is what happens when mom takes a picture and her daughter doesn't know it.

This is your hair when you let a 3 year old (Emily) style it.

This is the cutest ever face you get when you dress your child as Jesse from Toy Story.

This is the sign you will see when you are going to Louisiana when you let your daughter navigate.

Well, I think we all know how this happens.

This is when a mother to be overstocks

More overstock

The smile you get when you know you are loved.

Ugh? Spider Man Song?

I had to be a little sneaky to record him singing so I set the camera on the countertop. Wyatt has been singing this song for a while and as far as I know he hasn't seen the movie where this theme song originated. He really loves to sing, his all time favorite is itsy bitsy spider, but has also been known to sing, ring around the rosies, twinkle twinkle little star, rock a by baby and other songs I haven't been able to get him to sing while I"m recording. He's too much of a ham in front of the camera.
