Sunday Floral {Fashion}

This is my first "official" fashion post. I attempted back in the day, but there was too much going on in my life at the time to really keep up with it. Even now, these posts won't be super often, I don't think. When my husband was transferred to where we are now, it was supposed to be for just a couple of weeks, so we put the majority of our stuff in storage. As luck would have it, we are going to be here much longer. So I am stuck here without most of my clothes, however, I am using this to my advantage to buy new clothes ;)

Anyway, I love this dress, I picked it up at Target to wear to church yesterday morning. I almost passed it up in the store, thinking it would not look good on me, but decided to give it a chance, and so glad that I did! It is young but modest enough to wear to church or even for an evening out! These sandals I picked up earlier in the year from A'gaci. I was pregnant at the time, and my feet decided to start swelling around that time, so I am just now getting to really enjoy them!

Dear Kolton: Month Two

Dear Kolton, 

   In your short, but fast 2 months of life you have officially moved 4 times between two towns. You still do not have your own room, which sucks, because I really wanted that for you. Yes, I know you wouldn't even be using it, but I don't care. At least we are in an apartment now. You weighed 11 pounds and 2 ounces just a few days after turning one month old and you now weigh 12 pounds one ounce and are 23 inches long. I have officially moved you up into 0-3 month clothing.  You giggled for the first time. It was at nothing but it was a beautiful sound. It took a couple weeks, but now you smile and giggle all the time. Your smile is the most beautiful smile I have ever seen. You LOVE your playmat, the fox is your favorite. You want my attention way more often now, which is fine, because you are so much fun to play with. We had to change your formula this month because you were throwing up constantly. You still spit up quite a bit, but I have no clue why. You also drool ALL the time! 

    Recently you caught sight of your daddy playing video games, and you think that is awesome apparently. You will turn your head as far as you can to watch the TV screen, and just giggle away while daddy plays. I finally bathed you by myself for the first time, and didn't do to bad, now it is easy peazy, except I am always scared you are going to pee on me! So far you have not.. but still. We celebrated July 4th this month and it was a blast, I think you really love spending time with your cousins. You are growing very attached to Keli. Probably because she is in your face constantly. But you seem to really adore her. :) 

 We have been working on tummy time, you are still pretty lazy with that. Today you finally started putting more effort into lifting your head! I hope you will continue to do that. We are finally letting the dogs around you more. Mia loves you, and tries to lick you constantly, as a matter of fact, just yesterday, she bathed your face before I noticed she was doing it. (That's what mommy gets for looking away for a second) but you loved it and giggled up a storm. Even Lexi is interested in you now, she likes to sniff you and tries to crawl onto the play mat with you. We have taken you to church twice now, two different churches(trying to find one we like) and you have been such a good baby! SO quiet, and you have been complemented at both churches on your good behavior ;) You scream if we take the bottle away from your mouth for just a second. You LOVE your  food haha!

Love you baby boy!
Love Mommy <3

4th of July 2015

 I hope every one had a fun and safe 4th of July weekend! We had originally planned on starting the day out at the parade, but, my brother and his family did not make it to San Antonio in time :( Keith and I decided to take Kolton down to the Riverwalk, and even though I had my camera with me, I completely forgot to take any pictures.. which I am really upset about :( I thought about it, literally the second we made it up the stairs with the stroller.. note to self, Riverwalk is not very stroller friendly... anyway, we headed back to the RV and waited for my brother to get there. As soon as he arrived, he dropped the girls off with us, and had to leave because Mihka, their oldest daughter had been in a car accident... I got all 4 girls dressed and ready and we loaded up the car and headed to Shertz for the fireworks show. We didn't do much, just laid the picnic blanket on the ground, and enjoyed each others company. I gave each of the girls(except Kiki) a turn to take pictures with my camera, which is always fun when going through the pictures to see what all is on there. Haha! We had purchased some noise cancelling headphones for Kolton, but he didn't like them, so we only stayed for about 20 minutes of the show. He started getting a little fussy so we decided it would be best to leave. We needed to get to bed anyway, since we were moving the next day anyway. (I will post about that at another time)

Overall we had a great time, and I am so glad that my nieces were able to spend the holiday with us again for the 4th time in a row :) & hopefully Kolton will look back on these photos one day & see how much his cousins loved spending his first 4th of July with him :)

Fathers Day & Claire's 13th Birthday

         We had a small get together with my oldest brothers family and some family friends to celebrate both Fathers day and my sweet niece Claire's 13th birthday party. We did not get to come to her birthday party so we figured this would be a great way to celebrate such a special birthday.  It was so nice to be surrounded by family and friends & so many kids! This was Keith's very first Fathers day & I hope he enjoyed the day, we were dodging rain and at times couped up inside my dads RV.. all 11 of us. (Good thing my dad's RV is BIG) We managed to get through the day with only one child getting hurt.. which if you know the Nobles "clan" you know this is AMAZING.. haha. Kolton was loved on by everyone there.. although not sure he was all that thrilled about Chrissy.. he cried when she held him.  He seemed to love the rest of the girls though! 

It really was a special day all around:

New Traditions..
I knew I wanted to get something special for her, 13 is a milestone, thirTEEN deserves recognition.  I wanted to incorporate my mom somehow. My mom and Claire were very close & so my dad and I talked about it and came up with (what we think is) a brilliant idea.. and then came the birth of a new tradition.  I figured a piece of jewelry was perfect for a "young lady" I wanted it to come from somewhere classic... Tiffany's made the cut.  But then what? My mom loved jewelry that had hearts on it. She almost always had at least one piece of jewelry on that had a heart on it, & my dad told me the very first piece of jewelry he bought her had a heart on it. So a heart it is. 

Claire received a dainty little silver heart necklace. "A piece of Mimi's heart"  Each girl, as they turn 13 will receive, the same or a very similar piece of jewelry from the same exact place. (& not just the Noble's girls, this is for EACH girl, Claire, Aby, Chrissy, Keli, Kailynn, Kamryn, Kiki & Breelynn)----(not sure about the boys.. we have 4 years to think about the boys, Brian is the lucky one, he gets to be the surprised one haha!)

New Daddy's:
Happy fathers day to this amazing guy right here, my husband, my best friend, the father of our perfect little boy! I am so lucky to have you by my side raising our little boy. I hate to admit that I was in so much pain after giving birth that Keith pretty much took care of Kolton by himself for a few days. In just the short time he has been a daddy(exactly one month) he has already shown himself to the an absolutely amazing father. Kolton is so blessed to have you as his daddy!♥
I also can't forget that he is an amazing uncle as well! I am so blessed to have found a man that cares just as much for my nieces and nephews as I do. & at times has even been a caretaker of some of them on different occasions. Seeing how much he cares for, and helps take care of my nieces and nephews was a glimpse for me of how he would be as a father, and that glimpse told me he would be an amazing father, because he was an amazing uncle!
So... Happy Fathers Day to the best, Daddy/Uncle/Husband there is
Happy Birthday to the sweetest 13 year old! :)
