{Fall Bucket List - Jones Orchard.}

Pennington Fall Bucket List 2014

 I love fall. 
Everything is better in fall. 
The weather is better. The crisp air in the mornings feels amazing and it's just cool enough to layer your clothes. By the way - I seriously love layering clothes. The colors of the trees are better, I love red, orange and yellow trees. Starbucks is even better in the fall. Food is better. Everything is seriously better!

Winter, blah. Least favorite season. But lets not even think about that right now. 
Let's just focus on fall and our family bucket list this season!

First week of Fall and we already check one thing off of our list! 

Apple picking at Jones Orchard!


My baby (toddler?, no no, no....still my baby!) is putting his sixteen teeth to good use these days! 
This was his first real apple. I'm pretty certain that he liked it. 

I love his sweet face so much. 

I know that he will never remember these moments, but I cherish them and I hope that one day he looks back on all of these little memories and knows that we celebrated him every season. We embraced every moment. We showed him our love, not by material things but by spending time with him and letting him experience the world.  That's what really matters the most.

{13 months}

{13 months}


You are hilarious. Your personality is the best. 
Your faces, your smile, your laugh. 
All the best. 

So, you finally watch a little tv. You practically run in the room if you hear Mickey Mouse. 
You dance to the Hot Dog song. 

Well, you dance to EVERYTHING. 
Anytime you hear music....dancing. You bend your little knees and dance.
Cutest thing ever.

You are a daddy's boy.
I get just a little sad when you want daddy more that me, but it's will be back. Boys always need their mamas.

You are so full of life.
We love you more and more everyday. 
Love, Mommy.

Deegan is ONE!!!
 I can't believe it has been a year already. 
Oh and yes, I am a complete slacker on this blogging stuff. 
Serious slacker.

 In my defense - I am chasing after a one year old now. Have some pity on me people. 

 For any of you that stumble upon this blog and do want to know more or follow our day to day, find me on instagramL heyitsmishi7. All the fun stuff is on there, I promise! So, look me up!

Here are some of the photos I took from Deegan's one year session. I wanted something a little different and his first birthday party was nautical themed so this was perfect. The location was a little hard to find at first but my mom told me about this little park close by and can you believe that this creek was a few feet off the path? Perfection. It was exactly what I was searching for!

My mom and Dean helped make this little pallet boat that I love.
It's amazing what you can do with very little supplies. 

And here is our baby boy....I mean toddler.
Wahhhh! That's the sound of me crying. 
It just all happened way too fast!


I think that little pouty face is my fav. I love it as much as his smile.
This boy has mastered so many expressions and each one tugs at my mama heart. 

He is such a little explorer. 
Loves getting into everything. Notices everything. 
Smart as can be.

 This year was so full of first times. 
I loved and cherished every single one as best as I possibly could. 
I can't imagine my life without this little one in it. He has made our little family complete in a way we never could imagined. Although our days are full and our "me" time is about 15 min a day if we are lucky, I wouldn't trade it for anything. I love every moment of being Deegan's mama. 

Deegan's stats:
22.9 oz | 30 in.
Says: Mama, Dadda, Bubba, "Yum, yum, yum" and bye.
Fav. Foods: Blue berries, bananas, watermelon, strawberries, cheese and any kind of bean. He is pretty serious about beans. 
Favorites: Playing outside with sticks, Bath time, and dadda. 
Dadda is kinda his fav. right now, but that is okay. It is amazing to watch their relationship grow. 
Mama is going to catch those snuggles when she can and cherish each one.

{Mixing it up}

Today was a blah, cold, rainy day. 
I can't even explain how ready I am for nice, sunshiny weather. And I am not the only one... I mean just look at him! This kid is ready to play outside!!!
Hurry up Summer!!!!
I am really inspired by Deegan's playfulness lately since he is just learning to play and wanted to mix it up with his wardrobe to show his fun and playful personality off. Oh and I've also been waiting for the perfect outfit for Deegs to wear his H&M hat and this was it! 
Isn't it the cutest?

As you can see I am not afraid of mixing it up with colors/patterns too and since it was raining I had the perfect excuse to rock my leopard print rain boots today!

I can't forget....
This was my favorite photo of the day...Deegs and my sis.
I love them both. 

{6 months}

I can not believe that you are 6 months. I know I say that every month but it is so true. These past six months have been the best months of my life. Every bottle made, every diaper changed, every laugh and snuggle has been nothing short of amazing. You are amazing. You bring me so my joy. 
Six months is by far my favorite age so far. Although I miss you being so tiny, I am enjoying this stage so much. You are developing your personality and you amaze me everyday. You are so smart, sweet and perfect in every way. You love to laugh. I know because I tickle you every change I get. And you love hugs and kisses. I hope you stay my snuggle bunny baby for a long time! 

You are now sitting up and playing with your toys. My favorite mommy moment recently was watching you play with toys and your little friend at daycare for the first time. It made my mama heart happy. You are learning to play and share and making friends. I'm so excited to see you learn and grow. 


 I can not wait for the summer! I know that you are going to have so much fun playing outside. You already love to be outside and love the grass. I see a lot of park visits and playing outside in our future!

Oh and you deleted this whole post while I was typing. I had to type it all over again, but I love you anyways.
Love, Mommy.

{5 months}

You are 5 months now. You are getting bigger and bigger everyday but you are still my baby. You still love to cuddle. Sometimes I tickle you just to hear you laugh. 

You have the best laugh. 

Yes. I took pictures of you crying. You don't like it when mommy can't give you all of her attention. Dishes had to be done little man. Bottles had to be washed. You will understand one day. 
And look at those two teeth!!! 

You look so different from when you were born. I still look at the videos on my phone of the day you were born. It was truly the best day of my life. 

Your eyes are now hazel.
 Just like your Daddy's eyes.
They still turn blue like when you were born if you are wearing blue and they light up when you smile.

You are learning how to sit and play with your toys. 
It is just so fun to watch you learn and play. You put everything in your mouth and try to chew on it.
And you drool  and slobber on everything! 
 I love you just as much as the day as you were born. 
Actually. That is a lie.
I love you more and I know I will love you more everyday.
You are growing up but you are always going to be my sweet baby boy. 
Love, Mommy.
