Old Preggo pics and Wood Family pics

A few months ago we had planned on doing our "Sister's preggo pics" but little Nicole had to go and mess it up by being hospitalized and delivering early...sheesh Nicole-so selfish! Haha, anyway so we decided that we would still do our pic and just have Nicole put little Seth where her belly used to be. We are lined up in order of due dates left to right (obviously since Nicole already has little Seth).  Look at all these baby bumps! And for effect sake I put another pic of all the babies together after. 




We decided it would be fun to put Afton in the middle in this one since she's the only girl.



They are laying in order of age from left to right: Seth Logan Compton, Logan David Spencer, Carter Michael Williams, Charles Clayton Pett, and Afton Simone Wood. Man she's gonna love growing up with all these boy cousins!! Or I'm gonna love it! Less drama!

Just catching up..

In order to catch up on the craziness that our lives have been for the last few weeks with reunions, blessings, the 4th, tball, etc., I'm compiling them all into one post. So here is what we've been up to lately in a nutshell...

I took a few quick pics of Afton the other day because she just looked so stinkin cute and was holding her head up so well. I just love how babies look like those characatures with the big heads and tiny bodies and these pics completely emphasize how much babies look like them. Their proportions are just too cute!! It's no wonder that their heads bobble all the time, those tiny necks just struggle to maintain the massiveness of them!!



On Sunday, July 3 we blessed little Afton. We had a bunch of family support and are so thankful for all of them!! Afton was such a sweetie and Dev did a great job. What an amazing comfort it is to have your child given such a sweet blessing from her father!






On the 4th we started off the day with breakfast on the boulevard...pancakes with strawberry rhubarb syrup, eggs, ham, and orange juice. What a way to start a day! Since the breakfast is right there on the parade route we just go right out front to watch the parade. That afternoon we went to Dev's parents' to celebrate Sarah's bday party where the kiddos (and maybe a few of us older kiddos) went slip and sliding down in the pit out back on the slide we made with 2 slip and slides and several garbage bags. There is a video (from dev's phone so very low quality mind you) below of a bunch of the fam going down...After that we followed tradition and went to Freeman park to watch the fireworks. I love it there because it's not crowded and we can play football, Frisbee, catch, or whatever we want while we wait and we have the perfect view of the fireworks!!

 Cal is in her 2nd year of tball and I just love to watch her play. She absolutely loves to get out there and is already so talented!! ;)  




A few weekends ago we went to the annual Herrera Reunion that was in Iona Park this year. The kids had a blast playing all the games and being with cousins. We played volleyball, bingo, horseshoes, and the kids beat the crap out of a pinata. At one point during the kids games I looked over and actually saw Rylan running a race wearing a huge bra...not sure what exactly they were playing but proud to say that was my son...completely comfortable with his masculinity...or something.
