Baby Boy # 2 has a name!

Baby Boy #2 has a name...

Braden James Slocumb

Of course we had to use a name that starts with a "Br" like the rest of us or he would feel left out. (This means that I will have to change the name of the blog soon...any ideas?)

We are so excited about this little addition come to our family in September! We liked this name when Brock was born but we knew that we wanted to use Brock because it was my maiden name. We took some time deciding on how to spell Braden since there are multiple ways. We chose this spelling because it has "Brad" as part of it. James is my grandfather's name. He adores Brock and I know that he will love Braden also. Every one else in my family seems to have girls so boys names are easy to pick : )

We are off to the beach tomorrow with my family so we will update with pictures when we return!

Destin, Florida

This past week we went to the beach with Brad's family. We were gone Tuesday until Sunday. We went to Destin, FL and stayed at Silver Beach Resort. It was very nice and we had a great time. Brock got to do lots of swimming in the pool and he also got to play a lot at the beach. He had fun playing with his cousins (Wilson, Emery, & Bryggen). The weather was perfect and the ocean was beautiful the whole time that we were there. It was great! Here are some pictures from the trip. Thank you Mimi and Gaga for the trip...we had a blast!

7th Anniversary

Today Brad and I will have been married for 7 years! Can you believe that? Time flies! We have been together since October 1998, got engaged in August 2001, then married in June 2002. Since then, we have bought a house in Villa Rica, Georgia (where we have been since the wedding), both completed our Master's degrees, joined a church that we both love, met some wonderful friends, had a precious baby boy, Brock, in December of 2006 and are expecting our 2nd little boy in September 2009. WOW! Not to mention time that we have got to spend together as a couple. This season of our life is very busy but we are making some really great memories. We look forward to many more years to come!

Baby's Room

We have been trying to decide what theme to use in the baby's room. I sold all of Brock's stuff on Ebay so we have to get new bedding. (Every baby should get their own anyways, right?) I thought that I wanted to use blue & brown turtles called Mod Turtle. I had liked it for a long time. Then I changed my mind and wanted to use sailboats. I looked and really could not find any sailboat pattern that I liked other than Pottery Barn Kids and that was just too expensive. So, here is what we are going to use...

I love it! It is called Farm Friends by Global Baby. It is discontinued so I will have to find pieces that I need on Ebay. However, I was at Marshalls on Saturday and saw the 4 piece crib set. I did not buy it then but yesterday went back and it was on clearance for $20...WOW! What a deal! We are going to use black furniture (which we wanted to use all along) and accessorize with black gingham. It is going to be so cute, I cannot wait! We will post pics of the Nursery when we get it all done which will be months from now but at least we have a theme : )
