Christmas 2009

We enjoyed our holiday snuggled in the Ozark's (a.k.a Calico Rock, AR) at the Sugg's. These pictures are in no particular order because apparently my computer doesn't feel like working properly and won't let me see the pictures until they are posted. Oh, Well. Enjoy. Happy New Year!

Nurse Kacey

My sister just graduated from the University of Memphis School of Nursing! The family celebrated Thursday night after the pinning ceremony at Old Venice. Kacey will now join the real world in January when she starts at Methodist Germantown. She is working the 7pm to 7am shift on the post operative floor. Congrats, Kacey, we love you!

Much needed update

FYI, It took me a minute to remember my password to log in to my google account. That's how long it's been since my last post. Anyway, Hadley's crawling around and getting into everything. She crawls and scoots around to things I didn't even know existed in our house. My little 7 month old is full of fruit and veggies, except green veggies. She won't even let the spoon get near her mouth if it's green. Our day begins at about 6:30 in the morning, which is super early for me, but so much fun. Hadley is always in the best mood when she wakes up and it's quite contagious.

Matt and I celebrated our 1st anniversary a few weeks ago. Pictured here before we went to dinner with our 7 month old. Don't do the math it won't add up. We had a busy first year, but a darn good one! I adore my husband and family!

P.S. I want everyone to know.....(drum roll) I'm sitting in my own house using my own internet connection!!!!! Yipppeee No longer have to borrow the neighbors unsecured network or drive to the coffee shop

Busy is an understatment

Before, this darling child was seated in the chair, nicely playing with toys.


I walked around the corner for no longer than 15 seconds, turn around, and she has climbed out of the chair and is trying to climb back in. Most amazing fact, Hadley never hit the floor. How does one do that and not hit the floor? Oh Mom, how and most importantly why, did you have two of us so close in age? Yes, I will strap her in from now on.

The most precious lady bug in Memphis!

I Heart the Fall!

Numero uno reason the Suggs love the fall......TEXAS football. Other reasons include fantastic weather (non rainy days), lazy rainy days, pumpkins, gorgeous leaves, Thanksgiving and the Christmas count begins! Only 63 more days til good ole Santa Claus. Back to football. Matt and Hadley usually hang out for at least a few of the games before Matt is off to work on a deck for some friends. Hadley is only allowed to wear her Texas outfit on Saturdays.
Little pregame chat discussing the usual
Wondering if Texas can pull out a win over Oklahoma. To my OU peeps, I was under strick rule not to let Hadley wear her OU outfit. I'll need reinforcements next year to keep Matt away while Hadley gets dressed.

At 5 1/2 months she's a mover and a doer. Hadley doesn't stop moving or talking until she falls asleep. She loves ALL the new foods we've tried which include rice cereal, sweet potatoes, carrots and peas. Carrots are definitely her favorite followed very closely by green peas. Hadley girl rolls over and over and over again and would really appreciate if she could roll back to that toy that she just rolled away from. She is trying really hard to sit up all by herself without slowly falling forward. She's just soo much more fun and entertaining now!

I pretty sure the stork that dropped Hadley off, dropped off a new baby about a week ago. She has completely changed. It hasn't been bad, just tough trying to figure her out while she is teething. Oh yeah! It doesn't help that I have been told and now see for myself, Hadley is the spitting image of Matt and I will NEVER figure him out. (love you hunny) Here's how the conversation went with Hadley's teacher Algonda and I.
Algonda: What is Hadley like at home? Is she quiet?
Me: Well no not really. She talks and laughs and plays in the morning. At night we are a little more settled because she goes to bed fairly early. Why?
Algonda: Well, we really try and play with her and try to get her to smile and she's just so serious. And when we put her on the mat to play with the other kids, she doesn't seem to like it and would rather play in her crib by herself.
Me: that would be my husbands personality

My thoughts as soon as I got to the car: OMG. I would have a child that has no desire to be social. I'm never going to have anyone to hang out with. I'm going to lose this game of child rearing if the next kid isn't like me.
Matt's thoughts when I told him later: That's what I'm talking about!
But she sure is cute!
There isn't a whole lot thats been happening. Matt's girls team is having a pretty good season. Last Friday night, they tied Henry County 1-1, with a goal from Gtown in the last few minutes.

As mentioned previously, Hadley and I traveled to east Tennessee with Matt for one of his soccer tournaments with the Germantown girls. Disappointingly, my camera ran out of battery before we even left the hotel for his second of four games. :( I did get to capture a few shots of Hadley and Matt in the room Sat. morning.
This is what happens when your stuck in a hotel room with extra time on your hands.
The fact that they are both looking at the camera at the same time is AMAZING! What a pair! I dare them not to smile. Hadley got to sport her outfit that one of the mom's on Matt's team bought for her. Germantown's colors are red and white just in case you didn't catch that. This was before their second game which they ended up losing. But, they only lost by two goals to the team that hosted the tournament and is ranked top 10 in the state. Germantown won their third and fourth games of the weekend posting a 2-1-1 record for the weekend which was awesome. The girls and Matt did better than anyone could have expected. We're just so proud.
My cousin Summer is a freshman at Briarcrest and her team also played this weekend. In their off time she, my aunt and uncle, and some of the other Briarcrest girls cheered on Germantown with Hadley and I. Hadley loves her Summie! Great job this weekend Summer!

We had to come all the way to the Marriott in Knoxville, TN to get internet this time. Oh, the distances we travel to document our precious little Hadley.
Although desperate, don't think I would travel seven hours just for internet. We are in KnoxVegas this weekend to cheer on the Germantown Lady Red Devils soccer team. I think we have cheered more for dad than the actual team though. He's really good at coaching. They tied their game last night 0- 0 against a team from Kentucky. They are about to play their next game here in about an hour or so. (don't really know, just along for the ride) I'll post more on the weekend later. Just thought I would take advantage of the free internet. Happy Saturday!

The adventures in No Internet land

Yep, its been FOREVER and that just how its going to be if we don't get out own internet. I tried to go up to the coffee shop for free wi-fi tonight and somehow ended up sitting in my car in the Mcdonalds parking lot next to Holiday Ham Co. with a $5 starbucks. Might as well pay monthly for internet right?!

Any who....lots going on with the Suggs. Matt and has started school and soccer, meaing he is home for about an hour each night. I usually hang out with Hadley after work while Matt gets dinner ready. We go for walks, sip on some formula, chat, take baths, you know whatever.Hadley is a very busy woman these days. She talks up a storm, tries really hard to roll over, and flails her arms and legs for fun. Once she goes down for the night Matt and I get to hang out for about 10 mins. before we both pass out as well. Lifes Good!
A couple weeks ago Hadley got to spend a WHOLE weekend with her Keddie and Papa in Arkansas. I'm not really sure what really went on but whatever it was it fun because pictured below is what she did the whole way home plus a little longer....
What happens at Keddie and Papa's stays at Keddie and Papa's and thats okay!

Hadley also went on her first date. Sorry, Matt, a play date. It was love at first slobber. John Mason is the son of a friend of mine and he was born a week after Hadley.
Aren't they just adorable!!
My car's running out of gas. Gotta Go. Talk to you in another couple of months. :)

Family Time

Since being accepted into the Sugg family and having gotten to know them, I have learned a few things. One thing in particular is that when you don't want to go somewhere relatively important like church or school, you request to have family time instead. For example Matt, Hadley, and I have family time every Sunday morning and instead of church we sleep in, have breakfast, hang out in our pjs, etc. You get it. So, Hadley thought it would be wise to have family time this morning with her aunt, cousin, and gma instead of going to school. Kate took these pics this morning. Thanks for the updated pics. (which I stole sorry)and thanks to Kate, Keddie, and Mer for a fabulous morning! :)

It's been a while

So sorry about that. There just isn't enough time in the day. Anyway.....nothing much has changed. Hadley is weighing in at 10 lbs and 13 ounces. She is smiling and laughing and having all kinds of fun. She refuses to sleep during the day, but sleeps like champ at night, so its all cool. Hadley had her first sleep over last night. (reason why I have alot of energy today) Matt and I enjoyed some much need time out with friends while Hadley spent some time with my mom and dad. I'll stop now so you can look at the pictures. We know thats why you all (Keddie) read the blog right! Happy Funday!
Okay so maybe not all smiles, but still so cute. So sad but so cute.
She and Colonel Stan had a great conversation. They really have a lot in common.

Where the wind comes sweeping down the plain....

Hadley took her first road trip to Tuttle, Oklahoma. Don't waste your time looking for it on a map, its not listed. For peace of mind, its about 30 minutes outside of Oklahoma City. Despite location, we had a blast. With 16 total hours of driving time, Hadley slept about 15 total hours. She was a dream to road trip with. Thankfully. It was such a blessing to get out of Memphis and visit with missed family members. Hadley got to see her great grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and great friends. Below is a picture of Hadley being adored by her poppy. Her nanny is not pictured because she, if I had to guess, is in the kitchen preparing for the multitudes that stopped by to visit. Ahh, the joy of small towns!

Nanny, your delicious meals were very much appreciated. Thank you! I tried to add another photo of Hadley and her great cousins Drake, Alexis, and Abbey, but obviously that didn't work out. (thats what you get for stolen internet access) Trust me they are precious. Thanks to everyone for making our visit fabulous! We miss you already.

Happy Father's Day!

Why Hadley loves her daddy....
1. He teaches her how to kill squirrels (note: I said teaches. Matt hasn't actually killed the vegetable, fruit, herb eating squirrels yet - Matt: 0 vs. squirrels: alot)

2. She thinks its funny when he keeps changing her diaper, bathing her, & changing her clothes because he thinks she smells like poop and he can't figure out why. Come to find out while he was changing her diaper, she had pooped on him! HILARIOUS!

Most importantly...
3. He's a great man! As we speak, Matt is outside in the 101 degree heat working on a deck to bring home some extra cash for the summer!

We can't forget about Hadley's Papa Butch and Papa David. They are equally as good grandpas as they are dads! Thanks for everything you do. Happy Father's Day! Love you guys!

Bronzing Beauty

Thanks to our dear friend Becky, Hadley can now get her tan on! Becky bought her the proper sunbathing attire Hadley is sporting in the picture. I wasn't exactly sure how a day at the pool would go with an infant. As shown above, she was adorable and it couldn't have gone better. What I thought would be a longer drive to get there, than actual time spent chilling poolside, turned into a great day with the girls. Hadley was hooked up with an outdoor fan, shade, and a big comfy towel for her to sleep on and most importantly poolside attention whenever she woke up. Great for mom as well because I got to spend some much needed time out in the sun! Sweet summer time!

A perfect pair!

I just couldn't resist the imfamous child sleeping on parent picture! This is a typical afternoon when Matt gets home. Honestly, he needs his afternoon nap more than she does.
Hadley is growing like crazy. Our little miss piggy has gained some lbs. Or should I say ozs in her case. The child has definitely inherited mine and Matt's appetite. She is filling out in every direction. Hadley,also, got her first real bath the other day. For those of you who might be thinking she is a little small for a bath in the tub, you should have smelled her. Trust me. Times called for more than just a sponge bath.

We want to send a shout out to all our friends and family who have helped out these past two almost three weeks. Matt, Hadley, and I have thoroughly enjoyed the visits, diners, gifts, emails, calls, etc. I truly understand the whole "it takes a village to raise a child" concept. Thanks yall!

Hadley Elizabeth has made her debut!

I told you I would have something exciting. Sorry it took so long. Our dear precious daughter was born on Monday May 11. She weighed 6 pounds and 8 ounces. She took her precious time coming into this world (who would think Matt and I would have a stubborn baby). She is by far the most adorable addition to our home. Miss Hadley already has distinct characteristics. She has her momma's nose and her daddy's ginormous hands and feet. She is the light of her daddy's life. I will try my best to post more often as our little Hadley grows!

first post!

We are happy to be new members of the blogging world. We really don't have anything specatular to report just yet. Its a typical wed. here at the sugg house. Matt has finally passed out after Ghost Hunters. That show gets him every time. I am just chillin with my legs propped up. At 39 weeks pregnant, my calves, ankles, and feet probably weigh 15 pounds each. No Lie! For those that have been concerned about us getting everything done (yes Kacey I'm talking to you), WE ARE DONE! Baby no name yet sugg has clean sheets, clean clothes, and a clean room! We are just waiting for her eta which is next tuesday. Yikes.

A picture of her crib. Not that cool, I know. I can't get a picture of the whole room and I thought this was the cutest part. So there.

Stick with me. I promise to do something exciting soon. Maybe. Have a happy thursday!
