Ok so I know I have not been updating. I tried for 3 nights to update and kept losing my pictures, I finally got so frustrated and closed the computer. I will give it another try!!! I first have to thank Lindsay for this CUTE tutu. If your looking for that perfect gift give her a call at http://www.frillyfrances.com/ I spent about 30 mins. in the yard trying to get that perfect picture, but Todd was mowing and Maddi was way more interested in that. Thanks Linsay for offering to send one for the Shake 4 Jake. Everyone will love it and it is sure to be a hit and help raise some money for a great cause.
Maddi has started eating some solid foods and boy is she loving trying new things!





but FYI when you give her an oreo don't take it away. She was so mad because I would not let her hold the whole cookie by herself. Ok so here is where I lose it!!!! I have been trying to move a picture of Maddi eating grits Down here with the picture of her eating mac n cheese, but no such luck! It is driving me crazy and I have been at it over an hour now. I am going to try and just move on. Let me see if I can leave you with a picture of Maddi's new shoes she got this past weekend. They are so cute.
No such luck!!!!! I'm tired and fed up! I will try again tomorrow.
By the way my mom wanted me to be sure to let everyone know that those were tatoo sleeves. I don't have any real tatoos -----YET!!!!

Staci, you could have come down or called, and I could have talked you through it in nothing flat. Much less than the hour of frustration you spent trying!

But, you did get some on there, so way to go! Do you see how to make them bigger? I will come show you some of the "biggies". By the way, was that a LINK I saw in that post?! Sweeeeeeeeeeet!

Staci-
I am the same about getting those blasted pictures where I want them! I usually download all at once then drag them where I want them to go. Istill have a hard time though! Please don't let it keep you from posting! We can figure out what was supposed to go where! Ha!

Now wouldn't you get tick if someone took the Oreo from you!!?!? I would! She is so sweet. How wonderful that she has a cousin her age to grow up with!

OH my goodness what a relief on the tatoos... I was hoping you were not turning into a THUG! LOL

I'd be mad if you took my oreo, too. Love the shoes.....they are a fashion staple.
You'll get the blog thing, just don't get frustrated.
I noticed the tatoo sleeves...I don't have one....YET either, but I won't say it hasn't crossed my mind. My mom said she'd ground me if I got one so pierced the top of my ear:) HA (I was 34!)

Love your blog...Maddi is precious! I love looking a pics of her and Ellie. Hang in there with the pictures. You'll catch on. Hey, at least you've started a blog. That makes you offically "cool," right?!

I don't have a blog, but I do have MySpace. We have two teenage boys. MySpace helps us keep informed on the "who, what, when, where" of their lives. Boys certainly don't give you any details on their own!

Looking forward to more pics.

Staci,

First of all Maddi is so cute and I can see so much of Jake in her.

Second I wanted to leave you a blog tip that will hopefully save you a lot of frustation. You CAN move pictures, but that can be frustrating (even after you have figured it all out). I have found the best way to put pictures in is to start with the ones you want at the bottom of the blog and work you way up and then go and add the text where you want. It is much easier that way.

OMG the dreaded OREO FIASCO!! Been there, done that! I have all but banished them from Bree's sight! My "well meaning" neighbor gave her one to munch on one day and by the time when went inside we were BOTH COVERED in OREO GOO!! Talk about MAJOR MELTDOWN when I tried to remove it from her vise-like grip!!!Never again, we are sticking w/butter cookies from here on out (LOL)!

Ok, so now I actually have my laptop so I can type! Maddi is so cute and sure has grown since I saw her in December!
You guys were leaving the buffet and I was at the counter paying and I didn't want to yell. Ya'll were sportin' JOR Foundation shirts!!!! I think that is how I spotted ya'll.

Lindsay said...

I'm with Mo! You rock Staci.....tatoo sleeves and all, posting pics and linking all at the same time. It's working too because frillyfrances.com was dominated by your readers today!! Way to go...by the way, the child looks adorable in her frilly thing!! I am thrilled to give to such a great cause, but more importantly, I am thrilled to stop to remember a special little soul that taught me oh, so much about life. Thank you for sharing Jake with me. I am a different person because of him!! I can't wait to see pics of shake. Wish we were closer......just how far is Bham from WM?

Zhohn said...

Oh yeah, no way I'm missing the Marathon! I saw those "BELIEVE" shirts ya'll were wearing! I need to order me some more, my two from last year are wore out!

Sue said...

She is so cute . . . .
That picture thing is no easy task let me tell you. I was impressed today by being able to take a picture, load it on to the computer and then put it on my blog. Let me tell you for a middle aged woman who grew up with a regular little plastic camera that was big stuff.

BTW Staci - I say go for it on the tattoo. I love mine and am ready for another one!!!
