3 months old

Charlie turned 3 months on Monday and I went back to work on Sunday. It wasn't as bad as I thought, but I sure did miss my little dude. I can't believe it has been 3 months. It is amazing how much they change in such a short period of time. Sitting in my Bumbo like a big boy.
Me and mommy
Do I look like my Big Daddy?

Carrie and Keith

On Thursday Matt and I went to Atlanta to see Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban in concert and yes they were AWESOME. This was my Valentine's Day present and it was super fun. Ok I am going ot start off by saying that I have loved Carrie ever since American Idol and she was great live too. Now the next thing is I love, love, love my husband and I think that he is super good-looking and the most thoughtful person I know, but let me tell you Keith is HOT. (I already told Matt this, so it is ok for me to say this). Matt thinks I am crazy because I also talk about how HOT Jason Castro on American Idol is too. Something about a man and a guitar I guess. Not to mention Keith was an unbelieveable entertainer. I was really more excited about seeing Carrie, but Keith definetly exceeded my expectations. Yes I would go see him again any day. He was amazing and not to mention we had AWESOME seats. Matt had to join the Carrie Underwood fan club to get them. haha. Me and Matt
Carrie, singing "Paradise City" It was awesome. She rocked. Oh Keith

Keith you are my new favorite country singer. I told you we had awesome seats.

Happy Birthday to ME!!!!

Last Sunday was by 28th birthday. I can't believe that I am that close to 30. It makes me feel really old, but as Alan Jackson says 'it is just a stepping stone." It was great. Birthday cake is my favorite dessert and this year I got two (not on purpose), and of course I had to sample them both. I will have to say the highlight of the birthday celebration is when I opened my mom and Kendell's card. It was a music card from Hallmark that played MC Hammer's "Can't Touch This." Ben was of course hovering over me while I was opening everything and he immediately starts breaking it down. That kid never misses an opportunity to dance or sing, that is why I love him. He makes me appreciate the smallest moments in life. Enjoying two birthday cakes.
Ben bustin a move at Sunday lunch. This picture does not do him justice. We were all cracking up.

Lulu's Lover

Yes this is dog that sat on my sidewalk all day Wednesday. He guarded my front door like a hawk. I could not figure it out and then it crossed my mind that Lulu might be in heat, and yes she is. This little fella had found him a girlfriend and he was not going to let anyone else near her. Sorry little doggy this woman is off limits.
She watched him out the window almost all day and barked and barked and barked. Talk about super annoying.
Just chillin watching the little lover run around outside. This is her spot and it drives Matt crazy, but I have decided that life is to short to worry about trying keep that dog off the chair. Matt bought some spray that was supposed to keep her off of it, yeah all she did was lick it like it was candy.

Derby Days

Well Charlie attended his first EX Derby Day. The girls were loving this EX legacy. No really since I am a KD advisor, I went to watch their Lip Sync and Dance. I must say it was pretty impressive. The theme was decades and they were the 80's. Hard to believe that the earliest that any of these girls were born was probably around 1985-1986. It has changed a lot since I was there, makes me miss college a lot. Oh yeah they love me. Aren't they all so cute.
Charlie with his cool 80's shades on. Sad thing is Kendell really did wear some sunglasses like that last summer and thought she looked totally normal.

Hollywood Here I Come!!!

This past Sunday the first graders were learning about Abraham, Sarah and Isaac. Guess who got the lead role as baby Isaac? CHARLIE FOWLER. Of course I am a tiny bit biased, but I must say he did a magnificant job. Matt and I skipped a little bit of our Sunday school to go and watch. It was really cute, Abraham and Sarah came in first and told the children about God's promise that she was going to have a child. The lady playing Sarah was hilarious, she just laughed and giggled at the thought of having a child at such an old age. Our church does so many great things, but this small skit made me so excited to be a member at Fairview. Not only are Matt and I growing spiritually, but after seeing this I know that Charlie (and hopefully others) will be given so many opportunities to grow and learn about God. Thank you Lord for leading us to Fairview. Abraham and Sarah teeling the kids what God had told them about having a child.
Oh there is baby Isaac making his grand entrance.
Loving it and stealing the show. The kids loved him. Next week the story goes on, too bad Charlie's role as Isaac is over, he is not quite old enough yet.

Growing Like a Weed!!!!

Charlie turned 2 months old last Friday (3/28/08). Matt was holding him the other night and made the comment that he wasn't even a baby anymore. Yes I know he is still a baby, but it is amazing how much he has changed in 2 months. I took him to get his first shots yesterday and he weighed 13 lbs. 2 oz. and is now 24 inches long (according to them). Yes he is offically a chunk. This was taken last Friday, offically 2 monts old.
3rd trip to the Doctor (9 weeks)
2nd trip the doctor (5 weeks)
1st trip to doctor (9 days old). I told you he was changing.

A visit from Chris and Sarah

Chris and Sarah came to visit last Thursday. We had so much fun. We went to Starkville and ate at Mugshots and did a little shopping. Sarah is so cute, and I have to say she looks just like her daddy. Chris and Sarah at Mugshots.
Sarah was so cute with all of her toys. And yes that is a real remote control. I was cracking up, Chris said that Sarah really likes the big shiny silver one at home better.
And Charlie did not show much interest, but we were really glad that he slept the whole time. I know he is trying to fake Sarah out. He really likes her and knows that one day they are going to be boyfriend and girlfriend when they both attend Mississippi State for college (right Sam).
