8 months, and Thanksgiving trip!

Well little man is eight months old now. He is so big, and this stage is so much fun!! This past months has been full of firsts...
  • He has 2 teeth on the bottom. The first tooth wasn't that bad, but we've felt every ache and pain with the 2nd one. Poor baby just could not feel good!!
  • He can go from his stomach to sitting. I love going in to his room in the morning, and he is sitting up waiting on me, and at times he is already pulling the bumper down looking :)
  • He can CRAWL! He started about a week ago, and hasn't stopped. He's not fast by any means, but he gets where he wants to go. His favorite thing right now is the dvds. No matter where he is in the den, he goes straight for them. I think we'll be moving them a little higher now.

During Thanksgiving we went to the beach with my side of the family. It was fun, and a little restful but with 5 children in the house under 10, there is rarely a quiet moment. HA! While we were there, we got ice cream. I told Joe not to let little man have any...but one turn of the head, and looked who Loved it!! It was so cute, because of course he doesn't know how to eat it, so he just sucked it like a bottle!! The last picture sums up the two boys. Sam is laid back, and goes with the flow. Little man is wild and constantly moving or yelling. We went out to eat at Sara j's and Sam sat quietly and just played...while Joseph smacks the table and yells...and constantly laughs. Oh we are going to have our hands full with this little one..but we'll love every minute of it!!

Until next time...

Loving you is SO much fun!

Exciting news lately!! On Friday, November 13 I think I was having a guilty moment because I had been away so much.. so I went and bought little man his first big boy toy! I say big boy, because it's the first one he's got that makes noise, and sits up! He seems to like it ok....he really would rather just eat it! But the remote is by far his favorite toy!! He claps his hands when it comes near him, and cries when it's taken away!! Must be a man thing!! Another exciting thing is little man has his first TOOTH!! YAY!! We knew it was coming, he's drooled a gallon the past few weeks, and everything goes from his hands to his mouth. But poor baby, we didn't notice it until it was already cut through. Hope he didn't need tylenol!! HA!!
And lately he is loving bath time. He never really minded it but WOW at the fun he is having now! Little man used to sit, and barely play with I feel like I need to wear a rain jacket to bathe him. He constantly, him, the floor, and everything in between!! It's so much fun and I laugh the entire time!!


Until next time...

2 years ago...

Two Years ago changed my life. I had waited so long for this day and it was finally here!! We had dated for 5 1/2 years, and it was finally happening. We planned, and everything was perfect. We were married. We were happy. And it was perfect!! Looking back we were so young..(haha)...and never would have imagined what the next two years would bring... I walked down the aisle that day with my amazing daddy, and into the arms of my amazing husband. He is def. everything that I ever wanted in a husband. I always look what we've been through!! But looking back, I would walk this same road again, as long as Joe was beside me!!

We have had so many ups and downs in the past two years, some planned and others not so planned!! We have cried, laughed, yelled, and hugged, but every night we go to sleep knowing whatever the world throws at us, we'll take it head on together.

The best thing about these past two years was the birth of little man. I always knew Joe would be a great daddy, but I never would have imagined he would be this good. This day, and this view from the bed was the best ever...we were a family, and it was the best feeling!!

Happy two year anniversary Joe......Can't wait for the next 22!!
Until next time...

Halloween..a bit late!

Happy Late Halloween!! Here's our little pilot who was mighty adorable if you ask me!! He did great on Halloween but was give out and went straight to bed when we got home. The outfit was a little hot, so we only wore it for pictures!! This was about the best I could do for a group picture!! Ava of course always smiles, and Joseph and Sam are obsessed with each other. Joseph for some reason loves to look at Sam and laugh, while Sams expression never changes!! The night was so fun with these three!
Is he not the cutest spider ever?? We always joke that Sam get left's like he's the middle child! He is so laid back and just up for anything so I thought I would make sure he had a picture of his own on the blog. He def. was the cutest, chunkiest spider I've ever seen!!

So this is what we did today!! Big Joe has been battling a head cold all week and if finally caught up with me and little man!! We mostly hung out all weekend with my mom because she was babysitting Sam and Ava....but today we were just pooped, and both of us were sneezing and coughing! Luckily we never ran a fever, so we hope after a day of rest, we both are ready to start the week feeling good!!

Until next time...
