Cici and Mimi

Mimi and Cici brought Aunt Rachel into town so she could go to youth camp with us. We were so happy to have them here with us for the weekend!

We went shopping at a consignment store and found your Halloween costume! You NEVER like things on your head but loved this so it was a must :)

We walked around the mall and you got to ride a few rides

Your favorite part though was your new shoes! You immediately wanted to put them on and then posed and smiled for this picture :)

I know my body parts!

You are the smartest boy in the world! Okay.. I may be a little biased, but seriously you are SO smart! A lot smarter than we give you credit for most of the time :)

Tonight was a perfect example.... I randomly started asking you where your body parts were and you pointed right to them!!! You knew your head, nose, ears, tongue, belly and toes! And the first time. The only one you get confused on is eyes, because you want think I am saying ear ha!

I am so proud of you and cant wait to teach you so many new things!!!

Catching up

We have been crazy busy lately but enjoying every minute of you so I wanted to take a minute to talk about what you have been up to.

First of all you are teething like CRAZY! Your 4th bottom tooth has now come in, making your total 8 (4 on top and 4 on bottom) AND on top of that 4 of your molars are trying to come in all at the same time!!! Whew its made for some fussiness... but also for great naps too.

Speaking of naps, I wish I could freeze time as far as they go. You are a PRO napper ha! You typically get up at 8am then go back down from 9:30-12:00 and then will have another nap from 2:00 or 3:00 until 5:00! Its A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! Especially now that Mommy is so tired too from growing a baby inside of her.... it really helps me out that I can nap too :)

You went on your first drive in date with us to watch Toy Story 3. We thought you would just go to sleep on the mattress but we guessed wrong. It was a cartoon on... what were we thinking???

It was Saddle Ridge Ranch VBS at church and it was the perfect theme for you since you love riding horses. You will pretend to ride daddy all the time and even rock back and forth.

You also got to spend a lot of time with your best buddy Heather!
By far your favorite part of VBS was the music and you danced your little bootie off everytime you heard it. You are quite the dancing machine... dancing every time you hear music anywhere and even shake your head and swing your arms now too :)

We headed to the beautiful White Lake campground with the James family for a relaxing vacation to celebrate the 4th of July. You LOVED being in the water. We had to really watch you because you had no fear and would just put your face right in! You are also Mr. Independent too so you of course didnt want us to have to hold your hand.

You adored being at the campground. It meant total freedom for you. You loved being outside all the time and had to carry your shovel with you at all times. There was never a moment you werent dirty, but thats part of being a boy, right?!?

I'm so thankful you love to give your mommy kisses :)

You loved the fireworks this time- clapping after every one and sitting still just taking them all in
