Oh alright! I'm sorry it has taken me so long to post new pictures. My camera batteries died and I seriously don't have any new pictures to share. I'll have to rely on my family members and the ones they took. The pictures above were taken in a beautiful park in downtown Memphis. This picture is on our family Christmas card this year.

I bought new batteries today so I'll have plenty of pictures to share of Noah's first Christmas. Such sweet memories! I hope you all have a wonderful time with family and friends.

Praise the LORD, for a child is born! The Messiah. The Savior, my savior! Hallelujah! Love, Kayci and the boys

Happy Halloween

Thursday was the Halloween program for Truitt's preschool. He was a Cowboy and Noah was the proud little brother as a Giraffe. Getting Truitt dressed was fun until the boots came on. He threw a major fit and when asked to sit by Noah and put his arm around him the tears ran harder. This picture was snapped in that moment.

My little cowboy

His program was cute, but he didn't do much until........ the Ghost busters theme song came on and then he was dancing/marching all the way out the gym.

Noah the Giraffe

oh no..falling...falling... can't stop it...

The wranglers and belt Truitt wore were Josh's when he was little. Did you catch the JOSHUA on the back of the belt? That happens to be Tuitt's first name as well. (no, not a Joshua truitt the second)

The belt buckle is, of course, the Alamo.

Happy Halloween everyone. Enjoy the pics!
I LOVE this holiday for the sheer fact of giving candy to children. I also love to see the creativity in the costumes. Happy Boo! - Kayci

2 months old

Yesterday was Noah's two month birthday. I can't believe it! He's so big and the sweetest baby you could imagine. He's so quiet, sleeps well, and is starting to smile. We've had many visitors so I've been behind on blog posts. I'll be posting quite a few in the coming days. Beverly, Jenny and Malaya and my great Uncle Richard and Aunt Janet - Thanks for coming to visit! We loved every minute. Love, Kayci

Richard and Janet stopped in Memphis on their way to see grandchildren. I was so thankful. Truitt loved visiting their camper.

26 days old

This sweet little outfit was given to us by a family from our church. How did they know it would be so perfect for him? One word...adorable!
Truitt REALLY needs a haircut. His blonde curls have recently become wings, and I wish I could have gotten him into the salon to see miss Kelly before yesterday. Yesterday was, of course, picture day. Oh boy, we may not be buying school pictures this go 'round. Ha. Enjoy your day. - Kayci

I just caught part of the memorial service on Good Morning America for those lost on Sept. 11th. Wow, what an emotional morning. I remember exactly where I was when it happened. I entered the campus center at ACU and saw everyone huddled around a TV on the wall. At first I thought it was a special effects show, but when I realized this was real life panic set in and I HAD to find out immediately where my brother Korey was. My oldest brother worked for a financial firm based in NYC at the time and he had to make trips to NY often. Thankfully he was not on any of those planes, but could have been if the attacks had been two weeks earlier or later. I can't imagine the pain I would feel today if my wonderful older brother had died on a plane or one of the towers that day.

To those that did experience loss that day, I'm so sorry. My thoughts are with you, especially those children who lost a parent/s.

Where were you that day?

10 days old

Martha - sister-in-law (but like a blood sister)
Keith - older brother

Today Noah is 10 days old. He is precious and happy much of the time. I did survive my first day yesterday by myself with both boys. I think I did pretty well. When my parents left on Saturday morning it took me a while for reality to set in - my mom and dad had left, the help was gone, they weren't on a quick run to the store. I cried my tears and took a deep breath. Josh HAS been a great help and there's no one else I'd rather raise a family with. Thank you Josh.
My brother Keith and his family (Martha, Reese, Anna Wren and Claire) came to visit all the way from Montgomery, Alabama! We loved having them here and it meant a lot that they came all that way. Thanks to all who have given food, time, prayers and gifts. My family has been blessed by your love. - Kayci

Fabulous Baby Shower

Two Sundays ago our church gave Noah a baby shower. All of my best Memphis friends were involved and made me feel so loved and special. The food was great and the presents were many and precious. I'm constantly reminded how blessed we are. Thanks to all involved with pulling the shower off, those that were able to come and those that sent a gift. I hope we all get to meet little Noah VERY soon. Just 8 more days until my due date!! Yippie! Love, Kayci
PS. I finished writing all of my thank you notes in a week!! I'm so proud of that. It took me a year to write my wedding notes. : )

Very pregnant - this was yesterday.
