hello baby.....


That was a quick five days away.


quick.


We left Thursday morning...and just got home.


I was going through all of the photos and there is


only one of me.


just one.


obviously...because i'm the one behind the camera...


taking pics of the kids all weekend.


I broke down and bought a winter jacket before i left for the mountains.


Do you see the snowboarders behind me....


watching me...


like i'm going to hop on my board...


and tear up the mountain...


in my jeans.


Do you know a lot of people wear jeans while skiing?

I'm serious.


I saw a lot of acid wash jeans.....


actually...


i saw a lot of things...


but i won't go there....


cuz this is a family blog...


and i want to keep it a happy place.


Anyways.....


hello there....i'm back....but one of the reasons i went


was to see this guy:




As of right now i am in serious withdrawal.


i'm hurting bad.....


like a junkie....









my ovaries kicked in to high gear over the weekend while


visiting my new nephew.


Preston.


I clearly remember my whole family standing around..


ooohing...


and


aaahing...


over the baby.....


and as i am holding this sweet baby..


i turn around to bryan...


and say...


it's time...i'll meet you in the bedroom in five.









At that point he disappeared.


gone.


i haven't seen him since.


I have a small feeling he's not on board with me


to have another baby.


oh well.
a girl can still dream right...
and i have her name all picked out just in case.


Anyhoo...this little guy was what i needed over the weekend....


i could have eaten him up..


actually...


i did...


but my sister in law had to stop me...


she practically had to grab Preston from me...


but all is good now.


I got my baby fix.
{now i'm just going to go and see if i can find that hiding husband of mine...}

what a sweet lil love!

Martha said...

He is toooo sweet! Oh my...I am going through withdrawals...which is NOT a good thing...so glad you are back and enjoyed your time!

Kristin said...

Love the picture of you and all those precious images of Preston.
Just sweetness to the full in a post...and funny too.
Like I would expect anything less.

Hoping you are happy and life is going well for you.

traci said...

what a precious little guy. i would have been hogging him all weekend too. i love babies - as long as they aren't mine. way past that point.

congrats to the florabella winners. you will love them!!!

BonjourRomance said...

Bonjour,
Preston is adorable, what is it about babies that makes us go all sappy? Looks like you had a great time with your family and in your fabulous jeans too.
Have a good one!

LovelyMissKait said...

The little one is precious! And you had me cracking up with your "see you in 5 minutes in the bedroom" remark. You know that kind of pressure takes a toll on a person...performing on command is not always possible. LOL

This sort of thing happens to just about every one of us. When we see a new baby so new to the world it makes us wish for another one. My 2nd baby is now 7 years old and I still haven't gotten my sleep rhythm back on track...one little detail to think about. :)

Have a great day!

case of baby love huh? adorable little one. love that shot of you too

Melanie said...

He is adorable and you look very cute with all your winter attire on:)

I love the name Preston too.

paige said...

oh goodness, he is beautiful!!!!

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Oh so precious. Such a cutie. So glad you had a great time. Hugs, Marty

Annie @ The House That Jade Built said...

Congratulations Auntie - He's a beauty! I know what you mean, I have baby itch lately in a bad way - it's not good!

mimi charmante said...

You know, while I adore them, I am FINALLY at that stage where I don't wish for more. This is a very. good. thing. because I worried that I would never get here and before I knew it, would have 8 kids...
Glad your back - time to get planning again!
bisous

Bonnie said...

Glad you enjoyed your mini-getaway. Very adorable baby you got to snuggle with. :)

I think the snowboarders were intimidated by that awesome jacket. They knew if you wear jackets like that you will tear up the slopes. :)

Happy Tuesday!

Erin said...

Can we say torture?!?! I'm ACHING now and I just had another not long ago! lol My husband would disappear too. Four is our limit, I think. Unless, of course, I find another husband. But I think I'll keep the one I have. :)

Amanda @ Bits and Pieces said...

"Meet me in the bedroom in five!"

You CRACK me up Kasey. Hilarious. Love that Lola has a "date night" with Dad too... how sweet. And bowling, seriously... Midwest thing for sure. We never do it out here but ALL of the TIME back in Illinois!

Mikal said...

Those ovaries are cruel... I was over it once too...now waiting for "the first" grandbaby, and they are back! 51 days and counting!

LuLu & Co. said...

Look at the sweet baby face.... my ovaries are kicking into gear just seeing that face!!

LuLu

a.love said...

You look SO cute!! Want to trade legs!? Look at those skinny thighs, girl!! Jealous :)
HAHAHA to ovaries kicking in!! What IS it about a baby that DOES that?! Preston is Perfection!!!

Debbie S said...

I like seeing my niece and nephew, but it doesn't make my ovaries kick into gear, it does the exact opposite! Love em and give em back. :)

Leah C said...

Oh my goodness, Preston is a cutie! And I get it completely...the withdrawals...my youngest "baby" is 10 now. The DH says "not a chance..."! Guess I'll have to wait and get my "fix" when my grandbabies come along:) So glad you got a chance to hold that lil' guy!

fawn said...

Cutie PIE.

Gail said...

Now you went and made me hungry for a baby fix! :) Sweet...sweet baby.

Lemonade Makin' Mama said...

Nothing gets me like a baby fix! I have a new little niece that I'd keep in a heartbeat, only her mother doesn't want to cooperate. Whatevs.

henzy said...

haha.. did you find him yet?
gorgeous baby.. its amazing how they lay there doing nothing yet you can spend hours on end just staring at them.

Jacky {The Sweetest Petunia} said...

Oh boy...Kasey, your new little nephew is absolutely precious!! Love me some baby. :)

Julie Harward said...

Oh, I loved this post! And yes, I know that feeling (the ovaries kicking in), nothing like a baby to have that feeling! Poor hub..gone into hiding..so funny! Very cute baby..I can just feel that soft skin and smell that sweet baby lotion! So, where did you go skiing? You need to come to Utah..greatest snow on earth you know. We have spent many weekends skiing with all kids..the best times ever! Come say hi :D

Dreamy Whites said...

I am so glad I found your blog! Found it via Morning T. I am from a very large family. There are 10 of us. I have a sister who has 8 boys, a sister who is due to have her ninth, and well I have 5 wonderful kids.
A newborn baby is always so precious. Your pictures are amazing. Thanks for sharing.
Take Care,
Maria

annie said...

gabrielle said...

He's too cute! Looks like a little man! My husband hides when I talk of a fourth, as well! Good luck searching for him!

Teresa said...

Oh how PRECIOUS you are!
I know...
you thought I was going to comment on how PRECIOUS Preston is...well he is precious...but you...precious as well!
I adore that you wore jeans on the slopes...I so don't have any of those ski pants!!!
Do tell me...where did you get that ski hat and scart to match...LOVE THEM!!!!
Where did you all go sking?
My sister...Melony...you emailed her just recently about your IKEA sofas...they are wanting to go skiing over Spring Break but the skiing here in the Northwest is not good this year.
I wonder where you went?
Happy Happy Day Precious one!

Oh! Those pictures are making my arms ache to hold a newborn! What is this spell newborns have on women? He's beautiful.

Jerri said...

So Kasey I have been wonderin' where you've been and now I see you were gettin' a baby fix...he is tooo cute...or maybe you've just been "busy" tryin' to quiet down those ovaries of yours :)
Good thing mine are gone...alas I will just wait for grandbabies...I hope Ash shares!!

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

You're a funny lady!!! But he is a sweet little bundle...he could make just about anyone want another baby, couldn't he?

As for jeans and skiing....I never owned a pair of ski pants...never will....denim all the way, baby!

Alyssa said...

Simply Mel said...

I guess my ovaries are shriveled up since the thought of another little baby makes me keep my pants all buttoned up! :) But boy, Preston IS realllllly cute!

I won? Wow! Lucky me! Over-the-top excited! You make me scream with excitement .... MERCI BEAUCOUP KASEY!

These Simple Minutes said...

I could smell his sweet li'l baby neck right now! If you set your ovaries out, they'll find your man. Oh, yes! They'll find him!

Tracey said...

Oh he's definitely yummy! Just too cute!!! You know Preston was the name I wanted for Braden...just couldn't get S on board with it!
