Happy 4 months (a day late!) Bent!


Happy 4 months sweet, sweet boy :)

You weigh 16 lb 10 oz...oh I just love those cheeks, my little husky-fit baby.

You are in a size 2 diaper.

You wear size 3-6 & 6 month clothes, size 1 shoes.

Your routine is the following:

-wake up 6:30ish, bottle.
-back to bed.
-wake up around 8:00, bottle.
-coffee & morning chat with momma/nap nanny snoozing from 9ish-11:00, bottle.
-tummy time/play mat fun.
{You have really started to pull on your toys & have a strong grasp.}
-lunch around 12:30. bottle + half a container of baby food.

{you have tried sweet potatoes & green peas so far, love both of them-yay!}
-nap around 1:30-4:30ish. bottle.
-play time.
-6:30 bottle + half a container of baby food.
-cuddle time with mom & dad.
-8:30-9 bottle.
-bed time! :)

every wednesday you spend the afternoon with your Shu-Shu & one or two days a week you go to Mawmaw & Pawpaws...the rest of the time, you come to work with me & GiGi...with that being said, we get NOTHING done because we cannot help but play with you all day.
once a month you spend the night with Benny B & GiGi...funny how now that you're in the world they find new reasons to "drop by the house" or Benny B needs "something at the office" when you are with me ;)
you are one very loved fella & I am officially second fiddle. ;)

...oh my sweet boy. You are growing up too fast.
I feel like this past month you truly went from a newborn to a baby/big boy.
{insert sad momma. tear. tear. tear}
You no longer like to be held like a doll, but up on our shoulders so that you can see what's going on...always afraid you'll miss something!
my mom told me from the day that I had you that I needed to cherish the days when you'd just lay in my arms & cuddle...I just didn't know how numbered those days were going to be.

Your giggles & squeals fill our house with happiness.
Every where you go, people {especially the ladies} fall in love with you.
I have to pinch myself daily to remind myself that you really are ours.

This past month you traveled to Myrtle Beach & Charleston, you helped celebrate my birthday + Uncle Tootie's, and many other fun events.

Life before you is a blur.
You are our whole world...
oh sweet Bentley.

We love you, we love you, we love you.

what we've been up to!

Last week I turned 26!

Seriously, when did all of us get so old?!

Thanks hubs for throwing me a sweet dinner with our family & friends ;)

Fall has hit the B household.

Mums have been planted.

Halloween decor has been placed throughout.

Pumpkin candles & coffee are enjoyed daily.


This weekend was all about enjoying the beautiful weather!

Saturday we headed to the annual Greek Fest.

cold beers paired with yummy food, count us in!


Bentley started eating baby food this week!

this is pre-sweet potatoes.

yes, if it is not nailed/bolted/screwed down, you can rest assured that it will be in Bent's mouth/.


Dear Bowen,
We are ready for your grande arrival!
Can't wait to meet you little fella!!!
We love you already,
Jake, Candace, & Bent

We're moving!

...not literally, just figuratively.

a certain gummy-grinnin' little boy moved into his crib this week.

{insert sad momma}

JWB & I made a promise to make the transition after Labor Day.

so proud of my little man!

last week me, Bent, momma, & Kel packed our bags & headed south for a little vacation, tour-de-SC style.

we started in N Myrtle for salty air & sandy feet.

[i never get tired of that view]

[Bent's first dip in the big salty!]

and ended up in Charleston for some shoppin', strollin', & sippin'.

[Bent's stunna shades got every lady's attention in the 843 area code.] his expression.
needless-to-say, he was ready to get away from us & be back with his daddy.

great trip :)
