Our big boy is 6 months old. He has mastered sitting up and rolling around the floor to get to what he wants. He has started to really notice and play with toys and loves to interact with daddy and I. For the first time this month he has started to fight sleep on some nights. I've put him in our bed to calm him down and then put him back in his crib, but only a few times. Most nights he falls right to sleep, but sometimes he will just cry a little and then fall asleep. He has eaten all kinds of different vegetables and a couple of fruits. His favorite seems to be peas of all things! He gags quite a bit, but will keep eating the vegetables that he doesn't like. It is so funny! He even gagged on apple sauce!! He also loves oatmeal.

Eating a Mum-Mum...he loves them and it keeps him busy while we are eating.


Don't Mess with the Boys

Saturday my boys were watching football together. When I started taking pictures of them, they both looked at me like "Leave us Alone!"



Labor Day Weekend at the Cabin

We spent all of Labor Day weekend at my parents cabin in Broken Bow, OK. It is absolutley the most peaceful, relaxing place. We love to take weekend trips there to get away and relax. My parents came down on Saturday, and Aaron, Ashley and the boys came down on Sunday. We ate an amazing rib dinner on Sunday night with all the fixings and peach cobbler for dessert. I probably gained 5 lbs! We all went out in my dad's truck to look for deer on Sunday night. The big boys and dads sat in the back of the truck. I'm not sure if that is legal, but we never got above 30 mph, so they were pretty safe. There were deer everywhere.
Abram is a great little cousin. He loves to "take care" of Lawson. He is teaching Lawson about dinosaurs in this picture. I asked him if he wanted to be a teacher when he grows up, and he said "I already am. I'm teaching Lawson".
We had a wonderful time at the cabin, and are so blessed that my parents let us use it whenever we want.
