Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween to our little buddy! We are so thrilled to celebrate your FIRST Halloween today. It is such a fun time to dress up and hang out with your friends and that is just what we did. You were the cutest little froggie on the block :)


Cici picked out your costume and even though it was hard to tell sometimes what you were, especially when your eyeballs on the top of your head fell down, you were still just adorable.

We went trick or treating with your friend Lily! Isnt she just the cutest little pumpkin??


I just love this picture of you two :)



You were all ready to go and get some candy with your matching frog bucket.


Daddy showed you what real frogs do by hopping you around


Group picture with all of the dressed up kiddos. Notice that you werent looking at the camera because you were too interested in Miss Lily Lew. You boy :)


Proud Daddy's with the kiddos


Your first house to trick or treat and I think the girls were more excited to give you the candy than you were to receive it ha!


We had a stroller parade going for sure and you did so well just hanging out there the whole time we were going door to door.



When we were finished we headed to our new friends house to watch the UT game. We beat South Carolina.. YAY! Thanks to the Marsh's for having us over :)

TGIF

We had been spending a lot of time indoors this week because of the rain so when Daddy got home today we went out for a family date night! Daddy is the one who feeds you your veggies for dinner so we did that before we headed out.

Olive Garden was the destination for the night and boy was it GOOD! You had a treat too... we discovered that although you do not enjoy water normally, you will drink it as long as it comes out of a straw. And let me tell you, you wanted more and more and more of it :)

Loving some bath time

Bath time has turned into one of your favorite things! I now put you in it sometimes if you are getting restless because it calms you down and you enjoy playing with all the toys in there. The cups are some of your favorite...



But really anything that you can put in your mouth makes you happy

Daddy was taking your pictures and he caught you trying to climb out of the tub!


Yes you just thought it was hilarious haha!

6 month check up

Today we went to your 6 month check up at the doctor. You wanted to sit up on the table and play with the paper this time, amazing the difference a few months makes and your awareness is so much more. The doctor said you were doing just great! You are 17 pounds 7 ounces and 27 inches long. What a big boy!!! You had your vaccines as well as a flu shot.

We tried your first green vegetable today- green beans. And as you can see from your face you didnt like them very much ha! This was really your first try of something that wasnt really sweet. Next time I will know to mix it with something else :)

Tonight at church you were showing off your dunking skill. We are starting ya early so hopefully you will know how to actually jump unlike your mommy and daddy haha!

Happy 6 months little buddy!!

Mommy surely cant believe you are already 6 months old! I will admit I am in denial too, however we got out Sojo for your monthly picture with him.




We also went and got your pictures taken! This is my favorite :)











We also got out your big boy booster seat...


and you enjoyed your first taste of baby food- SWEET POTATOES!!!
Life as a 6 month old:
sleeping 12 hours- yahoo!!
size 3 diapers
6-9 month clothes
2 naps a day
eating cereal for breakfast and veggies for dinner
squealing as loud as you can
reaching up for mom and dad
rolling and squirming your way around
LOVE tags
enjoy stroller time
walking around when we hold your hands
standing is still your favorite position
smiling and laughing all the time
stealing our hearts everyday :)

Lets go vols!

Yes baby boy, its very true... you have been a fan since birth :)
Today we played Alabama... BIG RIVAL. They were ranked #1 and we almost beat them 12-10!!!
You sported your TN sweatsuit because it was a rainy day. I have waited a LONG time to see you in it!!

We went to our church fellowship and hung out with our new friends. You sure do love your Uncle Jacob, who just happens to be our pastor too!

State Fair

These days in the mornings when you wake up you try to sneak a peak and see when I am going to come and get you. Today I caught ya :)


You also really want me to pick you up just about every time I walk by the exersaucer, so you stand up and reach your hands for me!

Tonight we headed to the state fair for a family date night. It was a beautiful night...


We saw the weiner mobile



a nascar racecar




animals at the petting zoo


You got your very first sticker of a cow too :)


You hadnt been in the carrier in awhile so every now and then you would check back and look to see what Daddy was doing ha!



Your daddy tried to get our picture enjoying our carmel apples... tried :)

Charming with that smile and eating your toes for a snack

I swear you are such a cheeser that I am not sure what I am going to do with you! Just look at that charming smile :)


Shoes are a new thing for you right now. You didnt really wear that many during the summer because it was warm and we didnt have to worry with your feet getting cold. Well now it is colder outside so if I am going to put you in socks then I might as well do shoes too. Anyways you are fascinated with them! You really arent totally sold with having them on and kick them off most of the time but when you can get the shoe strings to play with them you like that :)

We got to have a walking date with Lauren and Rebekah today. It was beautiful weather and great company that we needed!! We also cooked dinner for your new friend Canon's parents. You were so funny sitting in your exersaucer while I was cooking it. Normally you are playing but I looked back at you and you had your arms crossed leaned over just acting like you were waiting on me to hurry up and get done ha!


You found your toes!!! And of course what do you do.. stick them in your mouth!!!

Chicks dig me

Chicks dig me.. or at least the shirt that your Aunt Liz got you says so :)
I would venture to say its true though!!!
and I think Aunt Jen would agree because she cant get enough of you!!
We had a day of trying to get unspoiled since Mimi and Potts left. It never fails that when you are held a lot that we have an interesting day the next day ha! You were very clingy and did not want to nap so we got out of the house and went visiting. Momma also had football practice and you charmed all the girls there too!
