Fun in the Bath!

Church was cancelled today because of the snow so we had a fun family day inside instead! You werent feeling the best so we put you in the bath because you love it so.

And Daddy taught you how to splash!

We had our own church service, played games and watched movies. It is nice to have just a day to be all snowed in together :)

We had 6 inches of snow come over night and it was so Beautiful!! We rarely get snow here in Wake Forest so it was a sure treat.. AND it was your FIRST!!!

Daddy made some yummy snow cream for us

You were excited to break out your new wagon for the first time

but NOT so excited about the snow suit ha!

We took a little journey down to visit our friends the Lewis family

You and Lily played in her new ballpit

Jordan and Lily enjoying outside

You little one however were not a fan of the cold and instead just wanted to stay all snuggled up in the blanket!

We did get you to touch the snow at least but you still were not very interested.
Oh well! Maybe next year you can actually enjoy it too :)

9 month pictures

We went to visit the Picture people again today for your 9 month shots! I love this one of you standing since its your major milestone for this month.

and your sweet face in this one too

But this one is just CLASSIC! Your Daddy and I just thought it was hilarious! We normally dont like it when they dress you up but since your Daddy is a cowboy at heart, we thought it might be cute. Little did we know you would come with this smirk and attitude like you did. :)

We went over to play in the play area at the mall to show your Daddy how much fun you have.

and you loved having him there!

Then we got home and the two of you had boy time where you roughed each other up... hahah or something like that :)

Happy 28th birthday Daddy!

Today was Daddy's birthday!! We got up and made him waffles and then went to take him cake at lunch. He said that it was his best birthday yet because it was his first being a Daddy :)

You had a bad teething day today and couldnt keep your fingers out of your mouth.. I felt so bad! You did good though staying with the McCulloughs while we went on a date to celebrate. You always do great!

Time to clean!

You had a rough night sleeping because of your teeth and were up by 6am. Luckily with some medicine and a nap with Mommy you felt better. We had a clean out the garage and house day so you entertained yourself in the exersaucer...

and an empty storage container. Silly boy :)

A day with Jackson

Today you, me and Aunt Amy went to the Kids Exchange to get you some summer clothes! You were SUCH a good boy hanging out in your stroller while we shopped.

We went to hang out with Jackson afterwards and before long the two of you were up to no good.... devising a plan to climb inside the dishwasher :)

We had a fun night with friends and you were so excited to have your bestest buddy Jack to play with.

Dancing in the rain

While it was raining outside, we walked around Walmart and enjoyed this dancing bear who sang, "Do you love me?" He mesmerized you with his shacking hips hah!

The weather was amazing today so we headed on a walk to go meet Daddy when he got off. I am so glad you enjoy being outside!!

Puggles is your Awana class at church and you just got this adorable tshirt for it!

Because you are getting so smart and picking up on everything so quick we decided to go ahead and start working on your ABCs too! You just laugh and watch so inquisitively as Daddy calls them out to you :)

Meeting Miss Lottie!

Here you are into everything again while Mommy was cooking dinner. It has become an every day part of your routine :) We got to make a special very dinner tonight though because Lottie was coming home and we were taking her parents dinner!

You got to meet her for the first time and you just stared at her so intently. You also wanted to touch her a few times so Daddy helped you be gentle and touch her... whew it made me nervous though because you dont exactly know what being gentle means yet ha!

What a great picture of you and your proud Daddy and Lottie and her proud Daddy!!

Here is the pretty little girl herself. And yes I do mean VERY little.. she only weighs 5lbs 2 oz! You were 2 1/2 lbs heavier than her when you were born!
Right before we left we were saying goodbye to everyone and you shocked us with how you wanted to tell Lottie bye. Watch for yourself... something we all will never forget!!
Guess its time to say you have had your first kiss :)
