Random Update

Well, I have not been around much lately AGAIN, we have been sick AGAIN!! I swear if spring does not come soon enough, there is going to be one CRAZY PREGNANT WOMAN IN ARKANSAS!! We have all had a nice 6-12 hour bug of stomach issues, GOOD TIMES!! Luckily it has passed through each and every one of us and I think we are good!! I don't think (insert knocking on wood) there is anything left for us to get at this point...As well as all that, I have been having issues with my pcsyatic nerve already!! I could barely walk Wednesday due to the pain up and down my leg! Luckily it has calmed down and I am better today, but I have a long road ahead...YAY!!

Here are some pictures that have been filed under "Heisman Pictures" =). As yall know, Owen loves him some football. It is really become crazy how much he loves it, to the point that you rarely ever see him without his helmet on or carrying a football. The first words out of his mouth in the morning and after naps "Where's my football?". So I have been snapping pictures of all the funny times I catch him with this obsessions and just know that they will come in handy when he is up for the Heisman in 2026-2027 and ESPN requests photos from his childhood days of loving football =). Enjoy...
Owen falling asleep but still keeping it nearby =)...
And asleep =)...
He loves Shane's ESPN mags...His beloved helmet!Breakfast of Champions - Claire had the virus at this point and Mom was just trying to appease Owen for the moment =)
DISCLAIMER: Shane has warned me that if I do this he will become a ballerina and have no interest in the sport, but we would love him anyway, even in tights =). But I can say from the looks of him now, sitting in my lap as I type, with a HUGE busted lip from falling into a toy while running with his beloved football, I really think Shane has nothing to worry about =) (also, he keeps asking me to kiss his lip over and over again hoping it will stop hurting... MELT. MY. HEART).
Can't have a post without a couple cute pics of Miss Claire...her aspirations...to be on TV =)!
HAPPY FRIDAY AND HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!

So sorry to hear about your pcsyatic nerve... OMG, I remember that pain WELL!! Every time I hear that word I think of the time that Beth had issues w/ hers when she was pregnant, and I would lap her in the office, and say, "HI BETH!!!" each time I went around her. LOL Making fun of how slow she was walking. Do you remember that?! LOL OMG I am cracking myself up. It sure was funny at the time, until I was preg w/ Jonah and HAD THE SAME ISSUES!! haha, yeah, I so deserved that. Hope you don't have anymore issues w/ yours.

Love the football pics of O, and the ones of Claire. Sorry you guys have been sick. That is so miserable. Mabye it's all behind you now!!! =)

I love those "for the love of football" shots! Owen is hilarious how much he LOVES football.

And Miss Claire will surely be on TV one day. She was born with the need to perform. (And she's good at it too!!!)

Claire reminds me of myself when I was little.

Owen is so cute whe he's sleepy. :) I also busted my lip(except it was on a toy box). Hope the stomach bbug has left your house.

Claire is going to be on tv...or on the big screen! (watch out Anne Hathaway! There's a new brunette in town!) I'm sorry that everyone has been sickly! It's this blasted weather! I hate the whole 60 degree weather change that comes with winter/spring! Crazy!

BTW, the whole football obsession is awesome! And when he wins the Heisman, i'll brag that I got to see his baby pictures! HAHA! :)

Kelly Watson said...

Hey Rachel- your family is so precious! I found your blog through my friend, Amy Welborn. I saw on your "question/answer" post that you work for Loreal. Well, there's a position that is available in LR - Territory Retail Mgr - that I'm really interested in and was hoping you could offer some advice/insight. Do you mind to email me at kellywatson@ymail.com? I'd love to talk to you more about Loreal.

Hope everyone gets to feeling better soon!

Thanks!

Save that one of O wearing the printed pjs and helmet. You can collect money from him on a blackmail someday! Thats too cute and wouldn't that be a wonderful shot on ESPN when he gets the Heisman. Oh Yeah,!!!
