Summer is here!

This is Miles in his exersaucer on the kitchen table while Meme is cleaning the floors.
I came home from my last day of school and here he was with this sign
"School's Out! You're all mine now! Yea!"

Well today is OFFICIALLY my first day of summer vacation! Memorial Day doesn't count since it's a holiday I would have had off anyway! So Miles and I celebrated by climbing back in bed after breakfast for a nap while Jared got ready to go to work! I think he was jealous! We celebrated yesterday by visiting with Aunt Shannon, Uncle Ben, and Anna Lin. It was good to see them and for them to see Miles and how big he is getting! And, of course, Aunt Shannon had another sweet outfit for Miles! (He's wearing the Seahorse outfit today!) We had friends over last night for BBQ- Sam and Hollie Pennington. We also were able to take all of our visitors to our new house! Yes- I said new house! We close on Thursday and move in this weekend! I'll be sure to post pictures of the move next week! We are so looking forward to being in our new home and all of the memories we will make in this home! It is one we plan to stay in forever! I think Miles, Meme, and Jimbo will be the ones who take this move the hardest! We have really enjoyed our time here with Mom and Dad and have been so blessed to have them around during these first 7 months of Miles' life. Eating breakfast with Jimbo, playing chase with Meme, dancing on the piano...I told Mom this morning that she will have to come over and visit in the mornings- PJs and all! God is so good and He knew what He was doing when he blessed me with parents like mine. Miles has something his future brothers and sisters (hopefully) will never have in having this bond with my parents!

Miles playing in the floor today.

We'll let you all know when the Darby household is accepting visitors! Give us a few weeks to unload and then the doors will be open! Please come visit us! Better yet, what are you doing Friday and Saturday?? Bring a truck!

I can't belive it's May already!

As I sat in my faculty meeting after school, I came to the realization that today is MAY is May...the time of year when we receive end of the year check-out lists, book fine collection lists, report cards, etc...and my classroom still looks like it's February! Now I am excited about this time of the year...seeing as I only have a few more days until I can be at home with precious Miles...but I have so much to do over the next couple days! Ah! And here I sit- updating my blog... =)

Miles is just growing everytime we blink! He is six months old now. We have his six month pictures next week. He is a little wobbly, but sitting up. He loves being outside and feeling the wind on his face. He is talking a mile a talk of course. He still hasn't spoken those sweet words "ma ma" but he knows his "da da" sounds pretty well! And, boy, does he love his "da da"!

We've had lots of visitors over the past several weeks. Uncle Clif came home a few weeks ago, then Great Mama (my grandmama Terry) came to see Miles. She hasn't seen him since Christmas. Then Miss Tori and Mr. Lee came to see and meet Miles! I was so glad they came over! Then last week DiDi and Papaw Steve were in town and Miles got the special treat of staying with DiDi all week instead of going to Ms. Amanda's! They had a great time together and Miles got acquainted with his "Aunt Katie" (Papaw and DiDi's dog).

Uncle Clif comes back home this week after his final exams. He is staying in Hattiesburg for the summer to work with the youth at his church and keep his fingers strumming that guitar! Oh, but he will be help us move...hopefully soon! =) We'll keep you updated on that part of our lives...

So that's all for now! I'm sure I will log back in in a few weeks once school is out! May 23! Yay!
