We Have A Walker!

Preston has been doing a great job balancing, standing and doing squats.... then all of a sudden on Friday he just took off!  A few steps then on his bottom.... more steps on Friday night..... we are on our way now!  Look out!!!



Little Man- 11 Months!!!

Little man is 11 months and he is everywhere!  He started walking (just a few steps at a time, but we are on our way)!  He is power crawling also (which is when he puts his head down and takes off!), very serious man on a mission.  He also discovered the door stoppers in the house!  He loves to crawl over to them and just play with them non stop!  Such a little stinker, he looks up at us to see what we say then gets a big smile on his face!  We can't help but chuckle as we tell him no!  He is an eating machine and loves to play with his balls, boxes and cups!  Can't believe how quickly the year has gone!

Birthday Party at the Zoo!

Saturday we celebrated our good friend Mia's 8th Birthday at the Fort Worth Zoo!  There were 17 girlies and our little man!  Preston had a good time watching the girls play games and run around before we went into the zoo.  Then as soon as the party walked through the gates, little man decided it was a good time for a nap!  So, mommy and daddy got to see the zoo.... little man.... not so much!  But it was nice to be outside and enjoying the weekend!  Happy birthday Miss Mia! 
Getting ready to leave for the Zoo! 
Waiting patiently to go into the Zoo!
Pretty much the minute we walked in!

Bathtime Fun!

Little man has come a long way in the bath tub.  Now he is a splashing, banging, standing animal!  But it is so fun that he enjoys it so much!  We are going to have to start wearing raincoats with this kid, by the end of bath time the water is EVERYWHERE!  But I will take it! :-)

Clean Clothes for Us!

It's a silly thing to be excited about, but after a nearly two month back order delay we finally have our new washer and dryer!  YIPPEE!!!!! And nothing could be better on a Monday morning than an overdue arrival!  Especially since our old dryer finally died two weeks ago, making doing our laundry a pain and burden on our friends and neighbors!  Can't wait to do a couple of loads of laundry tonight.... wait.... did I just say that?

More Please!

Last night I had to work late and go to a City Council meeting, which meant daddy was on baby duty.  We have been trying out different table food with little man and we found another winner!  Meatloaf and mashed potatoes!
Mmmm.... meatloaf yummy! 
Stop taking pictures daddy and give me more!

Little Man-10 Months!

Little man is cruising along!  Literally.  He is crawling all over the place, pulling himself up and doing his own version of stand up squats!  It won't be long now before he is walking I think, sniff sniff.  He loves to crawl to over to our curtains and pull on them.  This of course is a no no for mommy!  He is eating table food now and doing fairly well.  He was a week into things when he got two weeks worth of sick though.  So it has been a little slower than it started.  But he is a champ and likes most things (except veggies which we are working on).  Between getting sick we had him weighed and he is right now almost 22 lbs!  He is babbling mama, dada, baba.... but they are just babbles (even though we absolutely love it)!  He is truly a joy for us and can't get enough of him!  (Sorry this is so late, once again)
