We have been living the life!  Literally!  A LONG beach trip with my parents where we spent 90% of the time at the pool, boring I know!  Yeah we had a blast.  Mom & I layed out in the sun for 4+ hours a day while babe napped.  We had a "great" trip BACK to the Orange Beach doctor to find out that she was allergic to the Amoxicillin that they had prescribed her the week before.  Nice.  She had some bumps come up that I thought were ant bites and 2 days later had turned into full blown blisters on her feet, legs and arms.  The doc came to the conclusion that it was an allergic reaction to either the Amoxicillin or shellfish, the only 2 new things she had.  So I didn't give her anymore shrimp and got her started on the steroids immediately.  After 1 dose the bumps improved!  Since John wasn't able to go with us (someone has to work!) we were super excited to get home to him.  And he missed us just as much!  We relaxed major the day me and baby got home!
From top right: Scarlet LOVED her float for about 30 minutes a day before she needed to "swim" on her own. (i.e. walk off the steps and go under : / ) She had her very first ponytail as well as first cookie from Publix!  She slept like a champ!  And as always she looked adorable even in 90 degree weather on the patio in footie p.j.'s!!
We had fun in the midst of all the madness of Hangout Music Festival.  As in I totally realized I am toooooo old for that festival shit and hung out with hubby and cuz and drank beer instead of "loved the scene."

Mom and I took Scarlet to Target for some Disney diving sticks because she loved some girls at the pool and we had to play in between finding them.  Duh.  She sure makes a cute bunny!  Doesn't it look like she is wearing a prison jumpsuit? (Thanks Jamie!) She isn't, it's a swimsuit cover up!

This was our coming home to Daddy.  So so so OH so sweet.  Sorry, redundant I know.  But I have never seen a happier boy or girl.  Parenthood is bittersweet I tell ya, it really is.  And I think I like the term "Bettersweet" a little more.  Happy weekend folks, we'll be spending ours together.  Oh & one more thing, my sister The Edwards Edition is having her 2nd addition at about 7 in the morning and I can't ask enough for special thoughts and prayers to be sent her way.  May little H.M.E. arrive safely and his Momma come out just fine.  May little Emma adjust perfectly and may I just freeze time so I can meet that boy before he turns a sweet 7 days old.  Love you sissy & can't WAIT to see you!!!


  1. Hey sissy, I'm in the hospital waiting room! Love the pics, can't wait to see you soon!

  2. Sarah ... What a small world!!! We are just loving Orange Beach and just wish you were to show us how it's done ;) although we all feel like something is biting us in the water. Any idea?
