Giving Thanks

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with our family. I am so thankful for the life God has given me and for the sweet husband and baby boy that I get to walk through life with.

Lawson tried his first "meat"...baby food turkey and rice. This face pretty much sums up how much he liked it! I think we will be skipping over the pureed meat product.


8 Months Old

Weight: Around 19 lbs.
Diapers: Size 3
Clothes: 6-9 months
Lawson is crawling like a mad man and just started pulling up on everything the day before Thanksgiving. Of course I missed it because I saw him trying, turned around to get my camera, and then turned to find him already standing.
He is eating like a champ! He nurses 2-3 times a day, takes 2 pumped bottles a day, and eat at least 3 jars of baby food, plus Mum-Mums, Puffs, and tastes of all sorts of stuff. His favorite food seems to be bananas.
Lawson smiles and laughs constantly and is a happy boy. I absolutely love being his mom, and look forward to each new stage of his precious life.


Meeting Nolan

Thanksgiving day was an exciting day this year. We got to meet Lawson's cousin (our nephew) for the first time. He is only three weeks younger than Lawson. This is Lawson waiting at the airport.
He was born in Japan since his dad, Jeremy, has been stationed there and has been overseas for the past 8 years. We headed to the DFW airport to be there when they landed. It was so much fun to see Lawson and Nolan together for the first time. Nolan is so full of personality and so cute!! It will be so much fun to watch them as they grow up together. Jarrett's mom was so happy to have both of her grandsons in her arms.


Trick or Treating and Formula

For Halloween we decided to have our friends over to our house for homemade chili, Frito Pie, desserts and trick-or-treating. Jarrett's mom also came down to be with Lawson on his first Halloween.
We had so much fun trick-or-treating this year. We only actually took Lawson to one house since he can't eat candy yet, but we had a great time going around the neighborhood with all of our friends.

In other news....Lawson took his first bottle of formula this weekend. Barbar fed it to him and he drank it right down. I've tried formula before, but this is the first time that he drank it. Still not sure if I am ready to completely wean him, but it's a start!

Mobile Baby

Lawson has started army crawling! It seemed to have happened over night. One day he couldn't get his chunky little legs up and then the next day he was ready to go! It is adorable and still a modified crawl with lots of belly scooting. We have had the best time playing with him on the floor and trying to get video of him. He can move pretty fast on his belly!
