I had a DNA test for genetic health and ancestry

You may have seen me posting on Facebook about this over the past week or 2, but I recently participated in a DNA test for genetic testing on a review campaign with 23andMe. I was intrigued by the idea of simply spitting in a cup, sending it off to a lab, and having tons of answers about my health and ancestry… but at the same time I was terrified. I went back and forth on if I should do it… curiosity got

Cozumel

Ryan the Baseball Player!

T-Ball for 3-year-olds?! Sign us up!!! I saw a flyer for the YMCA just down the road from us for t-ball and was thrilled that it was just for 3 year olds… I registered Ryan and Steve ran out to buy him a new bat, glove, and balls. He had his first practice last week and did awesome!

They spent some time catching and throwing. Ryan likes to throw underhand so they kept reminding him to try overhand… he started to get the hang of it. Then they got to hit

Happy Summer! A Dickey family photo overload!

Hope everyone had a fun and relaxing 4th of July! We usually spend it at the lakehouse, but this year we got the itch for home improvement… and we stayed home all weekend to clean, organize, and paint! Ah, the things that excite you when you get “old,” haha.

We spent the 4th of July at a friend’s pool for a cookout. Ryan and Rebecca made their own festive shirts and were in bed long before the fireworks 😉 The picture above is the best I could get of the two of them

My baby girl is one: a letter and birthday photos

Ohhhh, Rebecca. Where do I start? It’s such an exciting milestone… to turn one… but it’s hard for your mama, too. The first year flew by so quickly and now my baby girl isn’t a baby anymore. It’s bittersweet. But even if you aren’t a “baby” anymore, you’ll always be MY baby <3

 

You know, before I had you I hated princess stuff. I was never into Barbies as a little girl and I just didn’t get in to the frills and tiaras… I desperately wanted to have a

Rebecca’s 11 months

Dear baby girl,

You’re just a little sweetheart… the other day at the children’s museum another mom asked me if you were “7, maybe 8 months old?” You’re just a petite little girl, like your mama! You’re not walking yet, but you love standing and cruising along furniture or walking with a push toy. Just recently you’ve started attempting to stand unassisted! It won’t be too much longer!

You also love to climb… you can go all the way up the stairs on your own (with someone right

Rebecca: 9 & 10 months

Yes, I’m super behind. Rebecca turned 9 months old on the day we closed on the sale of our home, closed on the purchase of our new home, and moved into our new house… it was a big day! Followed by lots and lots and lots of unpacking… and getting ready for the holidays… Then Rebecca turned 10 months old on the day after Christmas, AKA the day before Ryan turned three years old. I tell ya, there’s no rest around here! So, I’m cutting myself some slack on missing these posts and am
