Remember me?

Well! Hello! I'm back! Life has been a little hectic lately so I am very sorry for the delay! :) But, I come bringing pictures so that should smooth things over, right? (smile)

I'll start by saying I have no Easter pictures... (gasp!) shocking...I know... however, I was very sick on Easter and my husband played 2 services and so the only picture I do have is on my cell phone. I will figure out how to get that onto the computer and then show you. I've even thought of putting him in his little outfit again and taking more pictures.... hmmm... maybe I should have done that and never told you! hmmm.... :)

Instead of catching you up on my life for the past few weeks, I've decided to skip to the present (don't you worry... you didn't miss much) and show you pictures of this weekend! Here we go!

Introducing Ellie Ruth Patterson
weight: 8 lbs 6 oz
length: 21 inches

Proud daddies, Wes with Ellie and Steven with Eli.
It's amazing how much of a difference there is in 3 months!

Ellie you are so precious!!!

Look at her little face!! Rachel she is perfect!!

She loves having her little hands by her sweet face! SO cute!

Me and the kiddos!

Me, Rach, and Mere with the little ones!
Eli and Ellie you kids are so dang cute!

haha... Ellie loves to hold her arm in the air while she is sleeping!

um Rach, can you EVEN believe that we are moms?!??!?!?

haha... here we are tyring to show how Ellie had the longest fingers! They are the same size as Eli's! she definitely gets that from Rachel!

One last snuggle with Ellie before I had to go :(


It was such a great trip to Abilene! We stayed with Wes' family, which was of course so great, but his mom was sick and didn't get to spend too much time with Eli :( But Wes' aunt Malta just sent me some pics from last weekend when we were there so I'll have to post some of those after I see them!

Love you Ellie! Welcome to the world! :)

Birthday Love

Well I am officially 26 years old! I don't feel any different than I did at 25... except now I am a mom! crazy!!

This is a GIANT fortune cookie that my parents sent to me at school! One side is like this and the other side was covered in chocolate, M&Ms, and all kinds of goodness! Yum!

And some sweet teacher friends bought me a cookie cake! I love those things!

My birthday was great! I got yummy snacks at school and then my family took me out to eat at Pasado's for Mexican food! Meredith came along and brought another giant cookie cake! (sigh) I guess birthday calories don't count... haha... Anyways, it was actually a celebration for me, Wes, and my dad since our birthdays are literally just days apart! It was a lot of fun and my brother called me from London and I loved that too!

I hope this week goes by quickly because next week is SPRING BREAK!!! Very exciting!

Eli updates: he has now found his hands and feet! So fun! He's also started "talking" a lot more which Wes and I adore! His little voice is so precious! We're still working on tummy time... he hates it! Hopefully he'll start to like it or at least tolerate it... He is such a blessing and I don't know how he is so perfect! Oh! Also... he's been drooling a lot and chewing on his "passy" a lot! Too early to teeth? Not sure... I didn't get any teeth for a really long time however Wes had 2 teeth when he was 3 1/2 months old! Eli's almost 3 months! we'll see...

Flowers + Door Decorations = Tears

I just wanted to show you what I saw at school on Monday. Leny, the teacher across the hall, decorated my door with Eli's pictures! So sweet of her, but of course it make me sob! haha... geez, I am crazy... but here is the door:

And these are the flowers that Wes sent me that day! They are GORGEOUS! My whole room smelled so good! Thank you honey! xoxo
