Jamaica Me Crazy!

Our trip to Jamaica earlier this month was amazing!  It was so relaxing and fun.  We stayed at Sandals Grande Ocho Rios.  We ended up staying at the Riviera, which is the beach side of the resort.  The food was delish (yum, jerk chicken!) and the drinks were cold and endless.  I can't wait to go back soon! 

I wasn't that great about taking pictures, but I will post some of my favorites.  Now for the pictures:

Here is the view flying in.

The bus ride to the resort.  It was about an hour and a half drive from the airport to Ocho Rios.  We stopped half way and got drinks.  They drive like maniacs there, so it was good to have something to take the edge off!

T.J. and Keith going scuba diving a second time.  I went to scuba school and passed, got dumped in the ocean and had a panick attack.  I ended up snorkling up at the top with another girl that freaked out too.  We were watching everyone below, so that was cool.  Me plus scuba just doesn't add up.  I won't be attempting that again!

Our room.

Hanging at our favorite pool!  It had these daybed type things to lounge on.  So comfy!
They had these beds too, but you had to rent them.  The guys got in trouble for sitting on them:)
Oh, and they are smoking cigars, which they did the whole time we were there!

T.J. going down a water slide at a different pool.
Keith going head first down the slide.

Bowling night

Tonight we hit the lanes at Western Bowl. I am so glad that it's nice there since it's so close.

Miles had fun there too!

Mom and Dad got their drink on!

Then Miles got sleepy!

Then we tried the new Chinese restaurant, JiLi. It was pretty good! We capped off the evening with a little game night. Sorry and some card games kept us going.

Derrick was struggling, obviously:)

Wordless Wednesday

Baby in a Basket & a Milestone

This morning Miles was fussing a little so T.J. went in and put his pacifier.  Miles sleeps on his tummy (I know, I know, we are so bad...but he loves it).  Then T.J. did his morning routine and everything.  When he went back in to get Miles up for the day, Miles was laying on his back.  He flipped himself over!

We have been practicing rolling over and trying to get it on video, then the little stinker goes and does it on his own:)  There hasn't been anymore rolling over today, but I'm sure there will be more soon and we'll try to get it on video!

PS- I did buy more storage for photos last night.  I just need to get the pics from vacation uploaded now.  Maybe later tonight.  I have some work to do now.  Happy Hump Day!

19 Weeks

Mr. Miles is 19 weeks today.  So crazy!

I know I promised our Jamaica update.  It's coming.  I am going to start uploading pictures right now:)

I will not be uploading Jamaica photos now because apparently I am out of free space on my blog for photos.  Anyone else had this happen?  It's saying I need to purchase more storage.

18 Weeks

We are back from Jamaica!  It was AMAZING!  I will post more on that later, though.

Miles turned 18 weeks on Sunday.  We took his picture yesterday, and I'm getting it done today.  What can you expect coming back all relaxed from vacation? 

Today Miles had his 4 month doctor's appointment.  He is 17.09 pounds and in the 84th percentile.  He is 26 1/4 inches and is in the 87th percentile.  His head is 16 1/4 inches and in the 21st percentile.  So we have a big boy on our hands!  He got two shots too, but was a champ.  He only really screamed after the second one and fell asleep soon after. 

I will hopefully get some pictures of Miles that were taken while we were gone posted soon along with a vacation update.

5 simple rules

I saw this here and wanted to share with you.  I think it's always good to be reminded.

17 Weeks

We did Miles' pic a day early since we are leaving bright and early for Jamaica tomorrow.  This was kind of a hard picture to take of him because the whole time he was just wanting to check out the dinosaurs.  I am sad we won't be with him this week, but he is in very good hands with Aunt Keriann & Uncle Derrick.  I'm off to go pack:)

Wall of Miles

We finally got our picture wall finished!  All the frames are filled with cute pictures of our little munchkin.  The frame on the right is an odd size.  We got them at IKEA, and they are European sizes, not our traditional sizes.  So I just filled in the gap between the picture and the mat with some dark brown scrapbooking paper.  I think it looks okay.

Also, I broke the glass on the big picture on the left quite a while ago.  We FINALLY replaced it.  We have had a broken piece of glass sitting in our entryway for about three months.  I checked at Michaels to see how much a piece of glass would be and the lady said about $40 and that I should check out Lowe's instead.  So we did.  It was $7 and they cut it for you.  Score!

3 Month Pics

Here are some of Miles' 3 month pics.  They turned out really good.  He was so happy and smiley in the blue outfit.  Then once we switched him to the red outfit, he was getting pretty sleepy.

I know I've uploaded this on facebook already, but I wanted to document it on here too.

Last night T.J. was playing a little peek-a-boo with Miles and it was cracking him up. This is the first time we've heard consistent giggles from him. He's so much fun!!

Comparing Baby Pictures

It's so fun to look at pictures of Miles and compare them to our pictures or us to see who he looks like.  There are some features that he has that we see in ourselves, but it's kind of hard to say for sure.  I think he looks  a lot like T.J.  But when I compare it to his baby pictures, then I am not so sure.  One thing is for sure, I can look at that sweet face all day long!

Remember when I posted about this frame a few months back HERE?  Here it is finally finished:

So what do you think?  Who does he look like?

Behind the Scenes of the Weekly Photo

I had some extra pictures that I thought I would share from our weekly photo shoot.

First off, we take tons of pictures.  Some weeks we take more than others.  It really depends on how much Miles moves, smiles, etc.  Here were a couple contenders for this weeks photo:

Here is what it looks like when we take the picture.  The whole family gets in on the action.  When the pictures are actually being taken, T.J. is usually up on a chair and I am trying to get Miles to smile.

And we usually finish it up with one or two close-ups.

Then I edit them in picnik, and voila, a weekly picture happens!
