Preschool and Playing

Sophie started Preschool!!!! I can't believe it. She was so excited and looked so darling. I couldn't even show her that I was devastated to have her leave. Here in Florida preschool is everyday for 3 hours a day. She is in a little private preschool where they have to wear uniforms. So here she is on her first and second day, modeling (of course) her two different uniforms. 
 Sophie Girl I love you so much! I am so proud of you and can't believe how fast you are growing. I miss you so much when you are away from me. Even if it is only for 3 hours it feels like forever. You need to stop growing and stay my little girl. Like your daddy always says we wish we could freeze you to stay this age forever!! You are our perfect little princess girl! Have a fun year at preschool!!

Day 1: Red Uniform

Day 2: Blue Uniform

Lucky ME!!! Look who I get to spend my couple hours every morning with??? This handsome dude. Mj you are my guy, my chapion, my machete boy!!! I love you so much!

So here are some pictures taken from Damon's Blessing by my incredible sister in law Bryn.  She is so talented! Thanks Aunt Brynie!
It is crazy to see how much Damon has changed in 1 month. The time goes by way to fast. WHY, is everyone growing up so fast?????

Look how different he is. My little chunk!

Always so much fun things to do with my 2!

This little man LOVES the tub. I know I know way to big for the sink but sometimes I get tired of leaning over on the tub. This way is just a little quicker.

Damon Barron Bateman

Damon Barron Bateman was born on May 28th, 7 lbs. 7 oz. 20 inches. He was 2 weeks 2 days early. Mom was doing everything to get him here early!!! She wanted to meet him and didn't want to be pregnant any longer. We were so lucky to have Grandma Cheryl and Grandma Renee come along with Aunts Sydney and Braquell.

Damon is the perfect puzzle piece into our family! He has been nothing but a joy in all of our lives!!! We love him soooo much. We are so blessed to have him in our family and surprise he looks just like his DAD! Of course 3/3 Batemans, 0/3 Barron looking children. HAHAHA!!

Here are some pictures of his 2 months of life thus far.

MJ turns the big #3

May 4, 2011 Michael J. Bateman turns the Big 3!

I can't believe my baby boy is 3!!! I love this kid more than anything. He is so stinkin handsome and so full of life.  He is fearless and a real life super hero. MJ is mommy's champion and daddy's buddy. Most days I pray for strength to be able to mother him, but I couldn't be more grateful or blessed to be his mother. During the day I feel like I am going to need therapy to handle you but every night all I want to do is get kisses from you. I Love You MJ! You are a choice special child and I am so happy that the Lord saw fit to bless me with you.  

You are only weeks away from being a big brother and I can't wait for you to teach baby Damon all your great skills. You will be the best big brother! You are so sweet to little babies and I know that Damon can't wait to come and play with you and be one of the buddies! Mom, Dad, and Sophie Love You so Much CHAMP!! Happy Happy Birthday!!
