Next comes the baby in the baby carriage!

Getting ready for baby!

Kevin was great while I was pregnant. Running out to get me powdered sugar doughnuts, Nutterbutter cookies, and 100 grand bars. He also made me yummy meals! Here is one~
a crab salad sandwich and fruit!

And he brought me flowers, aren't they pretty?

And here he is! Nova was born in April of 2006. When they first put him in my arms, he looked right up at me... and I was just amazed. He is such a sweet little boy.
Who does he look like? We think he's a good mix!
Who do I look like

Here he is at about 6 months. I took these pics on our bed set up with velvet and a sheep skin rug. He wet on the rug of course, I guess my photo shoot was just too long!

This was taken the same day, after changing out the rug for a dry one and putting on a little vintage blue bubble outfit with embroidered trains. The drool on the collar adds a nice tough, eh?342IM000230 (2)

Here's our little buckaroo at a year old!

I made his "Wanted" poster birthday party invitations~We had a cowboy party with all the fixin's! We served beef brisket and my mom made a cowboy hat cake.

Then before we knew it he turned TWO! That year Bear in the Big Blue House was his fave. We borrowed a Bear suit and my brother wore it, what a hoot! My mom made an awesome cake once again, will share pics of her cakes soon!

These are the only "professional" pics we've had taken so far. I took him to Walmart and had to argue with the gal to use this first backdrop. I had several changes of clothes and all the backdrops picked out. The photographer did a great job. After the pics came in she wanted to use them in a contest, ha! We have these in sepia as well.

Now all of a sudden he is three. Unbelievable! Where does the time go? We recently celebrated with Toy Story. I always make little shirts to go with the theme. These had the whole Toy Story gang on them, with "You've Got A Friend In Me" written on the bottom, along with my son and nephew's names written on "Etch" -a-sketch. The red hat fits him better now!


He got Woody and Buzz Lightyear for his birthday. I thought Buzz would win out... but Woody is the fave! He was really tuckered out from his big day~

Nap time with his new favorite friend

I think your blog looks great! You are such a pretty mom and Nova is a real cutie! I so miss those days with my son, my only child. He is 22 now and starting med school in the fall. Enjoy your time with him mumma. Cherish every moment. They do grow up fast!

It looks great! Are you loading the pictures first? Also I highlight everything and choose the same size font before I post, because sometimes blogger likes to change it on it's own. I didn't see anything wrong though.

You were such a beautiful mom-to-be. I was an elephant with my second and there are no existing pictures LOL Oh and I think she stole my skinny body cuz I'm still trying to find it ;)

Your son is absolutely darling :) If you had a girl, would you have named her Bonnie Blue?

You're doing a great job at this, seriously. I'm adding you to my sidebar now that you're actually posting something ;)

Have a beautiful day,
rue :)

Rue I see absolutely NO elephant remains, lol! You have a wonderful figure, and you look to be tall? I wish we lived closer, you could come over and play dress-up! I've lost about 80 pounds since I had him, and I still struggle.

Ha.. everyone was sure Nova would be a Rhett! No Bonnie Blue either. I can't share my girl name here because family might see and it's a secret!

I think I'll have to load all of my pics first, it will be easier. Blogger seems to change everything I do. My baby pics are cut off on the side and my wedding pics are distorted unless you click on them.
Thanks for the encouragement and comments folks!

Jeepers, that last post sounded as if I could be pregnant. I'm NOT! Just IF I were to have a girl, can't share the name here, lol!

Mary said...
