Every year I celebrate father’s day with my mom. Growing up in a single parent household she had to be both the mother and the father. We have our own little traditions. Always a funny card for fathers day & a mushy card for mothers day. And of course other presents.
This year is no different but now I get to add two more dads in the mix to celebrate. How blessed am I.
A new father in law and my husband’s first fathers day.
I lucked out in the inlaw department! My father in law is one of a kind. He is the funniest person I know;) that’s his own quote with a few misplaced words. He does so much for Dalton & I . Hands down the best cook we know. Best pawpaw in the world to our nephews. I can’t wait to see him with Remington Rae. He never asks for anything and would do anything in the world for anyone. He wears many hats husband, dad, pawpaw, chef, mechanic etc… he does them all well… We love you Charlie Hall
Last but not least my hubby. Our whole world is about to change in a month and he is already killing the dad game with flying colors. He has been with me for every step of this pregnany. Every appt by my side. Taking care of me when I was so sick. He is simply the best. Cannot wait too see our daughter have him wrapped around her little fingers….
As many of you know I had a 4 legged brother for 8 years named Nash. Well his name started out as Nash then went to Nash Tater , Tater, TaTa , Taterface. Well you get the point . Without going into to much detail Nash was taken from us Friday night by two german shephard dogs. Our hearts are completely broken. That minature yorkie meant so much to our family. Some people will think we are crazy because he was just a dog. But Nash was never just a dog to us. He was and will always be a part of our family. I loved him far more than I even like most people. He lived like a king while he was here. My mom, Junie & Anita spoiled him every day of his life. He loved taking walks, snuggling, having his belly rubbed, barking and chasing cows. Always cooled down by sprawling out on his belly. He loved going to grandma junies and always waited at night for my mom to pick him up. He had the absolute most cutest personality. I got married last October and he had fallen in love with my husband. Wouldn’t leave his side or his lap when we visited. His neice will be born in a few weeks. I know he would have loved her and big her biggest protector. We are all going to miss his presence but I’m so happy that we had him for so many years. I have included a few of my favorite pictures of this handsome boy 🙂

You will be missed little guy……
By now the whole wide world knows we are having a little girl. We are over the moon and thankful that so far everything is looking perfect! We didn’t care either way just as long as the baby is healthy.
We would like to introduce everyone to Remington Rae Hall, our daughter. Dalton and I picked her name out together. Remington is the make of a firearm. Hence is why Dalton liked it. I liked it because its such a strong name. Her middle name is after a few special people. My mother’s name is Rae. Being an only child and raised by her. She is the strongest most loyal person to her loved ones. I hope her granddaughter gets her strength. My biological grandfathers name was James Ray. Although I never got to meet him my mom has told me all kinds of stories. And we wouldnt be here without him. Last but not least my dear friend from high school Marquita Re’ . She is no longer with us but she was the most fearless free spirit I have ever been around. I hope our daughter has some of her spirit.
OH the joys of pregnancy. The first trimester weeks 1- 13. The first few weeks of course you have no clue and life goes on as usual. Then the excitement with the test and telling your close loved ones. The first month & a half were a breeze. The only symptom I could tell was I was super sleepy and could fall asleep anywhere. Then came the middle of the 2nd month and 3rd month. ROUGH city. I think I threw up every morning for 3 weeks straight. Brushing my teeth became a chore which still is for some reason it makes me nauseous now.
I have realized that baby Hall hates anything pork. First found that out at Christmas dinner when I took a bite into the Christmas ham. Not having any of that. So no breakfast food for me for the next few months. Morning Sickness kicked in full force. Then I got Strep throat and the dreaded flu! My husband is a saint. He took such great care of me! I had to go to the ER 3 times in 10 days.
The great thing about the first trimester is hearing that heartbeat for the first time and seeing that little jellybean on the ultrasound. The future is bright! Now on to the second trimester and seeing what gender our little jellybean is!
We are pregnant!!! So many emotions and thoughts as we found out this news. I knew from the get go I wanted to document everything to show our child one day. Before I get started I know many people have struggled and are struggling with having a precious baby. Believe me I know I was one of them. For you guys hang in there , the lord works in mysterious ways. I truley do believe in God’s timing. I first had an inkling the Monday of Thanksgiving. My period had been pretty consistent after taking medicine to get it back in June 2017. It never came that Monday so I took a test. It was very faint but it said pregnant. I thought no way because it was so light.
So I waited a couple days then took another one. It was the same thing. So thanksgiving night Dalton & I took a trip to walgreens. I splurged for the digital test so there was no reading between the lines… It was late and I was going to take it in the morning. Oh and my mom was,staying the night that night because she was visiting for Thanksgiving. 4:00 am rolled around and I had to pee. Dalton snoring away I go pee and take the test. The digital test is like a little computer. It loads 3 lines then says pregnant or not pregnant. There I stood at 4am standing over that test then it said Pregnant !!!! My life changed forever!! Of course I had to go wake Dalton up and he just hugged me so tight and was so happy.
So before we found out for sure, We decided to tell our parents at Christmas. I had this cute onesie picked out they could unwrap. Well that went out the door . We told them both that Friday…. I went Monday to the dr and they confirmed it. It still didnt feel real. They scheduled my first ultrasound for 12/28 a month away!!
Thank you for reading!!

Wanted to share a few of my favorite pictures of the birthday boy!! My Baby Cousin Kasyn Dale Brooks. Enjoy 🙂
First let me say that I am beyond blessed for the people I have in my life and the people that attended the shower mean the world to me. I am always real and true when I write my blogs, So I can say it was an emotional day. A ton of people were invited and did not attend. I understand that things come up but I cant help but get my feelings hurt. I have to learn to let things go and not expect things from people. Anyways enough of the negative we had a good time and Dalton & I are extremely blessed to have these people in our lives. Here our some pics from our special day. Also want to thank my momma for out doing herself with the whole thing. Blessed Blessed Blessed.
On our way to the shower. Rae Lynn still in Curlers 🙂 Love these two 🙂
