Funny story...so at night I will get my stethoscope out and listen to his heartbeat and then Travis will listen..one time travis decided to swap ends and put the ear pieces on my belly and he would talk into the scope part...it's pretty hilarious! He's so excited for him to get here and will be such a great father! OH, aaannnddd...over the holidays Travis changed his first diaper...brady's and he did great! he also helped me give brady a bath two nights in a row! he's definitely got this thing down. It's so fun to watch!
Well, gotta run. The Roby's (Amy, Trae, Nanny/gigi, and granddaddy) are arriving at any moment. they are spending the weekend with us since we didn't get to see them at christmas!
hope everyone has a great new years! talk to you all next year!:)
I can't believe christmas snuck up on us so quickly and then it was gone. On the other side....that just means Ty's countdown is fading away!!! YAY!! We are soooo ready!

On another note, ty's appetite has increased immensely! I feel like I am constantly eating and due to increase in food he is working out a lot more as well...he is moving like crazy...sometimes I feel like he really is going to punch out of my belly! It's pretty funny when my shirt is more of a tighter fit because everyone around can see him on his workout routine! As I walk Cooper I think," one day cooper and ty will have each other to wear out!" hehe! Speaking of our precious dog cooper, I was organizing all the pictures on the computer and figuring out the whole camcorder video thing so when ty gets here I'll know how to show all you how he is growing and I came across videos of cooper when we first got him! lets see if i can figure it out!!!
Anyways, it made me chuckle seeing how he was only 6 weeks old and Travis and I are trying to figure him out and how to make him eat and not be so sad! lol! Cracks me up because it makes me wonder if that is what we are going to do when Ty gets here! Although i have to admit our parenting skills must be somewhat decent since cooper did finally eat(after trying everything possible...who knew baby food would be the trick) and now will eat everything in sight...watch out! and we must be "fun parents" because cooper always wants to be in the house with us! hahahaha! No, I am not comparing Ty to a dog but I think Travis and I will be a-ok! :) and Cooper and Ty will be best buds!
Hope yall have a wonderful weekend...we have a weekend full of christmas parties so it'll be great...and one is the pioneer (travis's new company) party so i'll get a chance to meet some of the people he works with!

As a side note, we got our rocker in yesterday and Travis put it together! so, so exciting! We also put together the swing and pack-n-play! Ty is just about all ready for! It's kinda starting to get a little more real. We still can't get it through our heads that we are about to have a baby and be parents!
Travis went hunting again this weekend. I know you are surprised..this time though for peasants! So it's just me and cooper! hope yall have a great weekend!

Also, this past weekend we (my family) got to babysit Brady since my sister is going back to school to get her Neuropsyc degree (she got the smart genes), which is one weekend of the month from 8am-5pm. So doing that does not entail you to keep a baby...so family to the rescue..and let me tell you she really has to twist our arms tight for us to agree! haha, ya right. we love it! But, the weather wasn't really cooperative with us. The oh so, inaccurate weather men called for snow all week and of course it wasn't until thursday night that it really did..the day Brady and Meme were going to come to town. but here is a picture of cooper in the snow..I can't remember if it was his first snow or not but he seemed to really enjoy it. Anyways, the snow cancelled all schools but was practically gone by noon. So Meme had to stay in dallas and instead of me, travis, mom and dad getting Brady and Meme from abilene and going to the lake we decided to just go get the Bradster in Abilene and bring him back to Midland. So Friday night we played and on saturday around lunch time dad and Travis headed out to hunt.
Since Travis and dad went hunting us girls do what we do best..went shopping! Brady is almost 9 months old and is now wearing 18-24 month clothes! haha! he loves, loves to eat! so mom, brady and I headed out to get him a new wardrobe! and while we were at the mall we stopped by to see santa! Brady did really well for the first few pictures then began to cry...mom-mom to the rescue though! Luckily we did get a few good shots. unfortunately I don't have pictures of that but just know it was super cute! :) Of course we gave casey the pictures. But, don't kid yourself. don't think mom and i didn't put him in one of his christmas outfits before we left on our shopping excursion...here's a few of our photo session! so precious! His socks have reindeer on them with a red pom-pom as the nose..
It's funny because as a girl my whole life (well the later part..and especially now since I am pregnant) I have been told there is no love like the love you have for your children. I have now come to conclusion it must be a huge undefining love because I love Brady so much and he is just my nephew! So, I can't wait to have Ty to experience the indescribable feeling! So exciting!

Oh and get this...it is supposed to snow in Midland today. Currently it is raining and sleet is supposed to come at anytime. I have no idea if it is because I don't plan on stepping outside today! I guess I'll watch for snow flurries from the windows! Not even cooper wants to go outside. he's all cuddled up in his kennel...which is right next to the laundry room. I was going to start some of the bottomless pit I call the laundry but he looked so comfy and peaceful I didn't want to wake him! So cute!
Rewind to last week...Houston was a wonderful time. We got to see so many family and friends, eat great food, go shopping, get our nails done (well, not travis...the girls, the boys played golf) watch football, and movies. FYI..if you haven't seen Blind Side I highly recommend it...such a great movie. For Thanksgiving we went to the Gibbins lake house in Livingston. A great time with family, great food and a beautiful day..and to top it off, the Cowboys WON!! yay!
Cooper got to go on his first duck hunt. I like to think he did great but considering the ducks weren't out to play that cold, rainy morning he didn't get much practice.
Saturday we loaded up and headed back to good ole' midland...home sweet home...just in time for travis to get more christmas decorations out of the attic followed by sitting on the couch rooting on the texas tech red raiders. They pulled it out..it was a slow start but they did it...which always makes for a happy husband!:) During the start of the football game I was talking to my sister and Brady in a different room when all of a sudden we hear Travis yelling at the TV(or the Raiders)and Casey tells Brady, "Brady, Tech must not be doing good because your uncle Travis is yelling at them." haha, it was funny! Sunday, Travis and I were actually early to church (8:15)..pulled up and noticed no cars in the parking lot..turns out it didn't start until 10:00..haha! we obviously didn't get the memo! lol, it was pretty funny actually, we were so confused. oh well, we got the grocery shopping out of the way in the meantime. then my wonderful husband faced the cold weather and put up the christmas lights...then he went hunting..of course! while he was doing that I started finishing up the indoor christmas decor but then got distracted by putting all of Ty's new things up! For once, I found something that is more fun than christmas decorating. Ty got so much stuff and his little room is just coming together! Makes us anxious and we can't wait for his arrival! That leads us to the beginning of this week and the beginning of the post.
Hope yall are having a great week and staying warm for those who are having cold weather!

Travis got a new F150 truck (that is seriously on 20" wheels..lol) and let me just tell you...it was like night and day riding in that versus he F250 diesel. I love it so much better. During our 7 hour drive we didn't have hoarse voices from yelling over the loudness or have the shakes after getting out from the rough ride! It was fabulous..and the heated seats was a great heating pad on my back! :) We still haven't figured out the Sirius stations ( I am used to XM) but we managed to jump from country, 90's, christmas and classic rock.. In fact, (funny story but you might have had to be there) I love, love, love christmas music and I finally found a christmas station so Travis let me have my fun for awhile (secretly he loved it too, he even sang along with me) then the time came when i had to change it and I found Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody which we too jammed out to with all passing cars looking at us awkwardly because at this time we were in san antonio in 4 lane traffic..haha! it was great!
F-I-N-A-L-L-Y we made it to the Roby household with Trae/Grandaddy waiting on the curb for us...and just think we don't even have Ty yet..he might meet us at the Kelliwood entrance or at Fry Road when we come with Ty! Lol. we had a wonderful dinner and then made our first round of tour de houston houses. First stop Trey's new house...our little Trey, 6'3", 27 year old Trey is growin up! ha! His house was great, very nice! Little shout out to Mrs. Everett and Crystal for the womanly decorating advice! :) Second stop, ,Matthew and Christophers bachelor pad! Again, extremely nice and impressively clean...great job guys! Third stop, Tim and Amy's love nest..haha! Also a beautful home! Travis and I were so excited to finally see everyone's "cribs." Now all of you have to come to Midland to see us! :) Later in the week we will finish our tour de houston houses! yes, there is more! :) It's amazing the things you can do when you are somewhere for a week! yay!
Sunday we were given a wonderful baby shower! OH MY GOODNESS!!! All family and friends were so loving and generous for all they did for Ty's arrival. It was incredibly sweet and Ty made out like a champ...he's spoiled already! It was so great to see everyone especially the little one's, baby McCain, precious Peyton (yall should seriously consider putting her in a baby gap, etc. catalog..she's adorable, so pretty) and of course it's always great to see "Lil man Jack." As always dressed adorably...but who are we kidding, you can't be a Robertson/Devine without always looking GQ/cute! :) I can't believe how big he's gotten! Thanks to all who came out to celebrate with us and for the wonderful gifts. We love yall all so much and couldn't thank yall enough for everything yall do for us! We appreciate all of you! Next time we are in town we'll have Ty with us and I know he'll never be put down! :)
Our weekend was very exciting...fast and furious..but fantastic. Now we just have a week of R&R, a little shopping, hunting and golfing for Travis and the best of all...THANKSGIVING MEAL with wonderful family and of course the COWBOYS!!..soooo exciting!
We hope that everyone has safe travels to their destination, enjoy the time with family, have a wonderful feast and GOOO COWBOYS!

Here are pics of the nursery...for now..it's in the beginning stages! but you get the idea...excuse the clutter on the floor. those are presents from the couple shower...so sweet...minus the jumperoo which I set up tonight! so exciting.
We are so excited and can't wait for 14 more weeks until he gets here! yay! He's already a strong little guy..kicking and moving which most of the times feels like he is doing tae-bo in my belly. such a wonderful feeling though! pregnancy so far has been great with no problems and hopefully it'll continue that way!
Travis and I also had our first birthing class on monday...went good. we watched a video of the stages of labor. We will miss next weeks class but we'll pick up with birthing/breathing techniques, so it should get interesting. I'll keep you posted.
I know everyone wants to see what Ty is doing to my belly so i'll post a pic soon for now this will have to do...this is before the shower..and yes, i have started decorating for christmas already! :)
ta ta for now! oh but first here is a shout out of my precious now 7 month old nephew Brady who is crawling and pulling himself up like a champ..so cute!
