We love our Cousins

Last week was a fun week of seeing cousins! Since we are going to be a little busier over the next few months, we wanted to make a few quick trips to visit! Sydney was cheering in Winona on Tuesday afternoon. So, Truett and I went to check it out. Despite the poor rain that never stopped for two weeks, we only got to stay for 30 minutes before the bottom fell out. We did see Landon too but he was too busy playing with friends to get a picture. Sydney is so grown up! I can't believe she's a cheerleader!! She loves it!
Thursday was Madelynn's actually birthday party. So, Truett and I went to celebrate and spend the night with the Sassers! Madelynn was so excited to have baby Tru at her party and to take over her room for the night. Thanks, Madelynn!!

We love our Burnham cousins!!!

Welcome to the world Baby Gage!

Born September 28, 2009
4:34 p.m.
6 lbs. 5 oz.
19 3/4 in.

This morning Truett and I made a quick trip to Jackson to meet Baby Gage! It was so fun and I was so excited. He's tiny ... so sweet! I even got to change his diaper. I didn't even change Truett's diaper in the hospital. Angie was doing great and her same ole self ... dying to get her IV out. I sure hope they finally granted that wish after I left.
What a blessing that Baby Gage is here and mom and baby are doing great!

Praying for Mom and Baby Gage

Tomorrow one of my dearest friends, Angie Stallings, goes in to spend overnight in the hospital to be induced Monday morning. She's been on bed rest for the past few weeks with high blood pressure, swelling, and all the things a pregnant woman has to endure. Sweet Angie! You're going to do great! Please pray that she, baby and dad will do great and that all will go well on Monday! We can't wait to meet BABY GAGE!!!

Pray for The Sullivans

I don't even know this family but after reading my friend Janna's blog, I discovered this story. The Sullivans are friends of she and her husband through the Air Force and were stationed with them overseas. Please read their blog and pray for this family!

From Bumbo to Big Boy

No, this is not a post about Truett just now eating solid food! This picture was just too cute. BUT it is a post about his new high chair! Some people wouldn’t be so excited about something so big and bulky to go in your house, but ME, I’m SO excited that Truett finally has a high chair.
I think the best advice I could give a parent if you don’t have every single thing for your child before he/she is born would be... try to live without it as long as you can! I told Ryan after we got Truett’s Bumbo, we’ll just get a tray and that can be his “high chair” until we really think we need one. That’s just was we’ve done and oh how thankful I am that I don’t have to put the baby on the coffee table to feed him any longer! HA!
Saturday, I made a trip down to Jackson to buy a high chair and see Bebe and Pops. Suzanne joined us for lunch and we all four made the trip to Babies R Us to pick out the perfect high chair! If you know me, I’ve been trying to think of every way possible to come up with an alternative or find an antique chair that I could refinish. BUT I finally realized the other day, I have a child and my house is going to look like it! Thank you, Jesus for that freedom! So, we touched and felt and put Truett in the one we liked most. He absolutely loves it! Ok…well maybe that’s just me! But he can sit up high anywhere we put him and it’s too cute! Thanks so much Bebe and Pops! What a blessing!!

Mom and baby so excited about our new chair!

Happy Birthday to EVERYONE!!

That's what September seems like in the Berry and Burnham families! There are birthdays all over the place! So, since I've been a blogging slacker, I decided to compile them into one post. I really do love you guys! But since 2 of them were yesterday and one today, here goes nothing!

September 17 — Oh Bella! She's so silly and boy does she love her Uncle Ry Ry! Bella is a super silly girl. She loves babies and especially baby Tru. She loves to WATCH you change poo poo diapers and all that a baby entails. For a SIX YEAR OLD little girl, she's quite intrigued by it all. Happy Birthday, Bella Wella! We love you!!! Hope you enjoy your fun bath stuff!!

Well, how do you wish your sister's happy birthdays when they were born on the same day?! No, not twins! My older, middle sister, Melanie, and Ryan's older sister, Suzanne were both born on the same day, same year!! September 20, 1976! Isn't that crazy!
Suzanne is the greatest sister to Ryan. She is all heart! She will do anything in the world for anybody! The girls LOVES to shop and loves to sparkle! I'm so thankful for her in our lives!
Happy Birthday, Auntie SU!

Melanie is the greatest sister to me! You know how when you can't call anyone else because they won't understand...SHE WILL! She's a great mother to three crazy kids and the wife that does her best to keep it all together! HA! She knows how to put you in your place but only because she loves you and expects the best!
Happy Birthday, Aunt Mel!!

Last but not least is someone's special day TODAY!!!
Happy Birthday to Madelynn! She's a tough little girl and she's 3!!! She knows how to hold her own in between those two boys, but she's still ALL girl! She loves Dora and Diego! and anything PINK!! Happy Birthday, sweet girl!


Downtown Jubilee

For the past 2 years since we have lived in Grenada, we haven't been able to make it to the Downtown Jubilee. So, for the short time that it didn't rain, we went to check it out and see what it was all about! It was a nice little festival around the square with fun things for the kids ... nothing like the Natchez Trace Festival and a little bigger than the New Hebron Pulpwood Festival. We just enjoyed getting baby Tru out and strolling him around. As you can see, he was a delight as usual!

Truett went to see his Aunt T (as she likes to call herself) for the afternoon while I stayed around the house and helped Ryan on the house. YES!!! We're still working — Ryan especially! We're almost done with the little things on the inside but still have a long way to go. Truett always has the greatest time with Mrs. Teresa. He was watching the Bulldogs get beat by Auburn when I went to pick him up! He's learning early that the Bulldogs mays not win but at least have fun watching them! Thanks so much, Mrs. Teresa! You and your family are such a blessing!

OMG ... Have I told you how FABULOUS she is?!

Ok ... so, you saw my maternity pics taken by my friend Beth aka B.Mofoto. Well, she came to see us yesterday and took these fabulous pics this afternoon. How blessed am I to have such a fabulous friend?!
She's in MS until she stops getting bookings which means she just might move here!! HA! So, email me if you're interested or check out her facebook. It would be totally worth it!

Here are a couple shots she let me have in advance ... LOVE THEM!

A Visit and New Shoes

Over Labor Day weekend, I went to stay with my mom and dad because Ryan had planned to be out of town all weekend. Well, he didn’t end up getting to go. So, Tru and I went anyway and shortened the trip by a day. We had to have some shoes for church. So, good ole KO came through and we went to Leonard’s for a sweet little pair of baby shoes … the first ones I’ve bought. (such a blessing to have family hand things down!)
So, Sunday morning Tru was looking super spiffy in his outfit from Hayes and Wilkes and his new shoes!
Saturday night we paid a visit to the Henrys too. It was great to see their amazing new house that they have worked so hard to construct and to see Mr. Abb. Please be in prayer for him as he is suffering from cancer. Mr. Abb and Mrs. Theresa are dear friends of my mom and dad and have been through so much in the past two years! Truett was just a little ray of sunshine for them that day! ☺

After a Good Nap

Truett is nothing short of a happy baby! What a blessing he is! It is so fun to go in every morning to get him up and during the day from a nap. Well, Monday afternoon he took a four hour nap, (he hasn't been feeling so great—note the hoarse laughing) we had a SUPER DUPER special treat after changing his diaper. It's so funny how words can be so entertaining for about 10 minutes and never again! Enjoy this sweet baby boy!
