New Blog!!!! {Mrs. Sargent}

I have officially launched my new blog: mrssargent.com !!!
I will now be posting over there...go take a look!




We made a Harlem Shake video!!

My extended family had a Harlem Shake video contest. Chris, Frankie, and I teamed up with my brother Dave and his family. This is what we created. It was hilarious to make...the outtakes are my favorite part! We obviously are nerds cause we spent some serious time on this.


Life with Franklin: 8 Months

This hunk of love is 8 months old! How is he already eight months old? I can't even believe it! It has been the greatest 8 months ever! Living with this boy, and being his mama is the best. 
He is the dreamiest. 

He has lots of yummy rolls. This boy loves to eat. He wants to be an adult and eat adult food. He loves rice the most. He loves dinner every night of oatmeal and fruit and veggie purees. He also loves a treat of fig newtons or to share a banana with me. He refuses to take a bottle anymore, and doesn't even want to try a sippy cup. He's not interested. 

He has the funniest little personality. We already know he is 100% Chris's personality and I love it. He wants someone to be around him at all times. He make hilarious faces, and has the most contagious laugh ever. He is ticklish on the back of the neck and on his sides. He loves to listen to music in the car, play with my phone, and grabs at pretty much everything around him. 

He refuses to even try to crawl. He won't do it. He just wants to sit and play, or be held and jump like a crazy person. He won't attempt to get something that is just out of his reach. He doesn't want to have to try too hard to get anything. Nothing is important enough to him to try to move. I swear he will never ever crawl, but I kinda like it. I don't have to worry about him, and he just contently plays as long as I am in his sights.

He smiles all crazy, with his nose all scrunched, when he doesn't like something. He doesn't like when we sing opera or do something too loud or too scary. If you keep doing it, he will end up crying. 
It is the cutest and saddest thing ever. 

He reaches out to be picked up. He gives open mouth kisses (he is starting to get picky about when he gives these now). He is the most curious boy ever with his eyes always open wide and just soaking  everything in around him. He loves to be out and about, and I make sure we both get out of the house once a day. He loves to look out the window while we drive around and gets excited when he sees the tops of trees. He will hold out his arm with his palm open wide and let out the cutest little sound when he sees something that excites him. Every little thing he does is amazing and perfect and the cutest ever.

We love you baby boy!


Frankie's Threads: Freshly Picked Moccs.

Anyone that follows me on instagram (mrssargent), you know that Franklin literally wears his tan Freshly Picked Moccasins every single day. We love them. They go with everything, they stay on Franklin's constantly kicking feet, and are the cutest ever. I can't wait until he can fit into his other ones. I purchased the grey ones a while ago, and check everyday to see if he fits in them yet. Hopefully he will this fall...they will be perfect for the fall. Susan, the amazing creator of these moccs, and seriously the sweetest person alive, helped us make our collection even bigger. Those cobalt blue moccs have my heart. I can't wait to add the grass suede to our collection, and I am hoping the yellow leather will be back in the store one day!! 

{I get questions every day about where I buy Franklin's clothes, so I am starting a new blog series: Franklin's Threads to share his goods. I love love love dressing him... probably a little too much!}



Easter 2013.

Seriously, everything is more fun with a baby, especially holidays. Getting Frankie dressed in his little Easter getup was too much for a mama to handle... I almost ate him right then and there. Loved seeing him love the rattles and books we gave him. He's the cutest boy around and I love him so!

Happy Easter from The Sargents!


Out & About: A Week In California

{Frankie & I had a lunch date with our best friends Jasmine & Cecily at Fashion Island}

{My gorgeous sister Julie, pushing her twin boys, Ethan & Ben, while holding her one month old in the wrap. She's a rockstar!}

{Franklin's first time on the swings. His little rolly arms instantly started to shake, it scared him to death. I thought it was the cutest (but what don't I think is cute that he does?!?)}

Our family of three took a vacation to our favorite place in the world: Southern California. We had flight credits so we happily booked two tickets, rented a car for cheap, and off we went to visit my sister and her family and her newest little addition... Etta Christine Mitchell. We also lived there for a year in 2010 so we met up with all our best friends as well, and ate at our favorite places. It was so much fun to be in the sun and warm weather. We can't wait to someday live there again. We love taking these trips with Franklin now and showing him everything, even though he will never remember it. He will at least have these photos, since all I do is take pictures of him!
