Putting up the Christmas tree

Since we were out of town for your 7month picture with Sojo, we had to take it today.You were quite the squirmer so this is the best I could do!

I love this picture as you gaze in amazement at the tree. I think you love the lights!

Our Isham family tradition- sleeping under the Christmas tree the first night we put it up! How fun it is to have you join our sleeping party now :)

Daddy read you your bedtime stories and a special Christmas story..and before I knew it

you and Daddy were OUT!

Aunt Tiffany!!

You finally got to meet your Aunt Tiffany today! She is so good about keeping up with you on your blog here, but couldnt wait to get her hands on you. Since she was in town visiting family we decided to meet up on the road home at Cracker Barrel... it was so fun!

After a LONG ride home you were so excited to get out of the car seat and just crawl around. The first thing you did was scoot under the coffee table and started biting on the bars :)

Aunt Missy!!

Your Aunt Missy came to meet you today! It had been a long time coming for you to meet your Mommy's best friend from high school... and it was so neat to see you two together too!

We went over to Cici's house to check out the tree she put up and you just loved it and wanted to touch all the ornaments.

Then we had the Isham family Thanksgiving dinner.
Whew that was a busy visit in Tennessee, huh? :)

Jack Jack and family pictures

We got a special visit from Jackson and his mommy Amy today. It was SO great to see them because we miss them so much.. and it was even more fun because you are big enough to play together now! We even had to make you two match with the carhart overalls his Granna got both of you... SO STINKING CUTE :)
Notice the John Deer boots you were rocking as well... another hand-me-down from Jack!

We had Isham family pictures taken today with your Uncle JC, Aunt Leann and cousins Tristan and Olivia.

Family loving

We went to church with Mimi and Potts today! This was very special because it was the church that your Daddy and I grew up in and there were so many people there who were wanting to meet you. Mimi and Potts were very proud to show you off :)

Then we headed over to Dede and Poppy's house to celebrate Poppy's birthday. I have already taught you the secret move to get your uncle moose.. the FISH HOOK ha!

Susu spoiled you with one of your favorites- drinking water through a straw.

and Mamaw and Frank loved on you as well

Camille played with you and you just loved Jessie the dog too!

We went back to Cici's to get you in bed but you had to play with your favorite before-
Aunt RACH!!!

Let the spoiling begin!

We woke up Saturday morning and tried your first bananas at Cici's house. I definitely think they are your very favorite!

Cici and Pipper were so excited to have you at their house and they had new toys for you to play with- you were most entertained just talking to them :)

We went to meet your cousin Olivia for the first time! She is 5 weeks old!! Now there are 3 grandkids.

Mommy loved seeing a little on in pink :)

Daddy and Mommy got to go to one last UT game for a date and you stayed at home with Cici, Pipper and Aunt Rach.
Oh the joys of being back in Tennessee!!!!!

Off to Tennessee!

We are headed to Tennessee today! We are so blessed that Daddy gets a whole week off for Thanksgiving so that means we get even more time at home with family and friends for the holiday!! We have our bags packed and are ready to go... even down to your "off to grandmas" shirt :)
You got so excited when I asked you if you were ready to go to Tennessee that you were moving your arms up and down with excitement. I got a little video of it too :)

All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth

I finally got a picture of your two teeth! And you wont be having to sing the song "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth" anymore :) I just love this picture of you son. All smiles as usual!
Here is a close up on the teeth!

Im sad because you cant really tell in this picture but you had put bubbles up on your chin in the bath today. I think Mommy went a little crazy with too many bubbles this time ha!

Our sweet friend Chelsea came to visit today! She spoils you rotten every time we are at church and we were so excited to have her over to our home for the first time. She loves her some Griffin :)

Lil Stinker that now loves to NAP!

I captured what you do when you wake up in the morning on video. It melts my heart every morning when I see you peeping at me :)

Isaac and Lily came over to play with you this morning while Mommy and their mommy Christina had adult conversations. Those are important for mommys to have!

We headed to church tonight and as usual you were the center of ALL the girls attention! We found this shirt at Target and boy is it you to the T.

PU Lil Stinkers!!!

For the record today was the day of the turn around for you in the napping world. You went down for a morning nap for 1 1/2 hrs and then went down again after lunch! I finally learned that you dont really do well "crying it out" so instead I lay you down on your stomach, give you your pacifier and animal to hold and then pat your back until you fall asleep. The first time it took 15 minutes for you to calm down but then the second only took 5. I have been praying for this day for a LONG time ha.... now I have time to get a few things done :)
