After spending four fun filled days with our family in Michigan, we headed to Florida to see Grandma and Grandpa Cherry in The Villages, FL. We drove through a blizzard to the airport in Michigan to a two hour delay at the airport, followed by a four hour delay while sitting on the plane tarmac thanks to a pilot who was over his allotted hours.... Many other little things went wrong too... But with all of that being said we finally rolled into my parents house at 4:00am with one SUPER tired baby! Awful night! But we made it and little man did as well as could be expected!
We had our 2nd annual cookie extravaganza this weekend courtesy of the divine Miss Di Horst and company! We spent the weekend making 13 batches of cookies for friends and family in Texas! It is a whooping of an event, but thanks to the Horsts for the use of their home and kitchen we knocked it out as efficiently as we could! While the ladies baked, then men shopped! Works well in my book. Little man stayed with us gals though and was SO GOOD while we baked! He napped, played, jumped in his exersaucer and was just an overall champ!
Little man was ready in the holiday spirit as we prepared for our baking fun!
This is half of the total number of cut outs and gingerbread's we did!
Preston is 8 months old and growing! He is on the verge of crawling and really getting a fun personality! Not only does he now have his two bottom teeth, but he is cutting all four of his top front teeth at once! (advanced according to our doc!). Though the fangs (canines) have come in first which makes him look like a little vampire! He is talking like crazy and giving us lots of belly laughs! He has has a couple of flights this week and done exceptional on each one! We are lucky as far as that goes! (knock on wood) We started meat this month, which he has done ok with even though mommy and daddy think it's nasty nasty! He still loves his fruit (bananas and applesauce) and he likes his orange veggies (carrots and sweet potatoes). We tried to give him a little juice cut with water but he wasn't interested! Love our little bug!
