Kyle's arrival

They look ready to be parents, right?

This was Dr. Richardson (aka my dad) monitoring contractions.

Bless her heart Amanda was in labor all day and in the end the doctor ordered a c-section.  This hospital lets the family literally stand outside the operating doors.  At first I thought this was so awesome, but when I could hear my sister upset I realized this was an awful idea.

AND as a side note!  Even if a c-section seems out of the question..ask all about it before you go in!  My planned c-sections were great.  I knew what to expect and they knew all my wishes up front.  I'm not sure if this was just the way this hospital operates or what but I was not happy with their way.    

But all was well and look at this handsome man smirking at his daddy!
These two were made to be parents!  They are naturals.  
I'm super proud of her! 

This aunt thing is right up my alley! 

Uncle Ike is excited too!

This baby boy has been prayed for, for such a long time!  We know The Lord has great plans for him.

The proud grandparents!

The next day we were back for more!

God is good all the time!

Favorite things!

My go to summer shoes for the past two years is a white pair of Madden Girl sandals I found at Marshalls.  I absolutely love them.  So much that the bottom is wearing off!  These below are as close as I have found.  You can find them here.  They go so well with just about anything!

I am also a huge fan of these...
I am planning on ordering these from here!  I had no idea you could order from TJ Maxx online!!

I love OshKosh shoes!  We got some like this for Brant this summer.  They drain water which is awesome.

Friday Favorites: Spence Addition

In honor of Spence's 1st birthday which was yesterday!  I'm doing some of my favorite pictures of Spence this year!  
Here is the first picture of our big boy!  Welcome to the world!
I love this sweet little serious look!
 Just starting to enjoy the bumbo!
 Spence started smiling around 6 weeks!
 I love this!  He's like what is this thing?
 Oh I could just eat up those sweet cheeks!
 Beautiful baby!

 The cutest cow I've ever seen!
 happy happy!  That is truly the best description of this baby!

 Spence is a little cuddle bug especially in the mornings!

 Loves playing with toys!

 His first Christmas was so much fun!
 Food is his favorite!

 bath time is a hit! and he's totally fearless and doesn't cry if he gets water in his eyes.

 Lights up the room with that smile!

Spence has added so much happiness to all of our lives!  We love him so much and are so thankful for this year!  Yesterday we had honey buns for breakfast to celebrate and we are having a party this weekend for our big ONE year old!
