Hot Damn!


What a great proud of our boys. We sent those Gators packing!
Each one of our players came out to win that game, and boy did they win! Everyone kept their heads and for the most part made good and thought out plays. I'm so looking forward to next season, and better yet our championship this year since NC state lost.
(Good job Maryland)

Jimbo did a great job, definitely proved himself!

We love you JIMBO!!

(not sure why all the lettering is so LARGE, guess the computer feels my excitement)

Thankful Heart

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday. I could not have asked for better food and better company. Davis was in the best mood, played and laughed with everyone at lunch (26 to be exact). From lunch we went to my Aunts house for our second meal of the day, I was so full! Davis ate at both places, trying everything from turkey to corn souffle and he loved every bite. Although I will have to say that the sweet potato casserole was probably his all time favorite, it was so fun to watch his expressions as we gave him taste of all kinds of new food!

As I looked around the rooms yesterday I was reminded of all I have to be thankful for. Wonderful family and friends who love our sweet boy so much. I'm so thankful that he will grow up around such solid people, people who know God and are kind and loving. We have our crazy moments just like any other family but in the end we love each other more than the world. There is so much bad in the world, I'm just glad he will always have a safe haven around the people that love him the most.

I wanted to share a story that our minister of music shared with us a while back at church. I think every mama in the sanctuary had tears streaming down their face...

There was a little boy who's mommy and daddy were bringing home his new baby sister, he was so excited for his little sister to be home. He kept telling his parents how much he loved her and how he was going to take care of her and be the best big brother. He asked his parents if he could be alone with her, they just kept telling him no but maybe soon when she got a little older. The mother and father wondered why he wanted to be alone with her and why he was so persistent about it. they just chaulked it up to being a new big brother and wanting to take care of her by himself. Well he kept on asking till one night the mother and father gave in and told him he could go into her room where she was sleeping and sit with her as long as he was very quiet. He was so excited and assured his parents that he wouldn't wake her up. The parents let him go in and as he crept in the room the parents watched from the cracked door. He stood at his sisters crib staring at her sleeping, just as the parents started to walk away they heard their little boy begin to talk to his baby sister.... as they listened they heard him say "Tell me what Jesus is like, I'm beginning to forget"

Such innocence in children, I believe they are all sent directly from him. Perfect and pure. Its our jobs as parents to never let them forget what he is like and maybe we can learn from their sweet hearts.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone, I hope it was a wonderful day for you and your family.

I NEED A NEW CAMERA! any suggestions?? something not to expensive because I'll either 1. loose it or 2. Break it

So around 100-150?

One that takes good face pictures and action shots


Tonight we Made a Mess

Every once in awhile I let go of my "clean" side and let Davis dig face first into his dinner. Well we went for it tonight!

"eating" his pumpkin bowl

{see that sippy cup? finally found one he likes! boy loves him some juice!(mostly water)}

Hello monkey!


Davis did this after I would put a bite of fruit, meat, whatever into his mouth. He would take it out look at it then out it back in... over and over with a look on his face like "what is this!?" silly boy

9 months?

Nope not possible.....

Its so hard to believe that D will be ONE in 3 months...

This age is so fun!! He has such a fun personality and is right on the verge of trying to walk. He pulls up on everything and has stood on his own for a few seconds at a time. I would almost rather him just go ahead and walk now and get up off the floor. I feel like all I do is vacuum and mop trying to combat the dog hair and dirt that he is crawling all over, ugh. He thinks that he can get down and crawl anywhere.. which we all know is not possible. Crawling in publix just isn't exceptable! haha

Lets see what the boy is up too...

* size three diaper
* 12 month clothes
* still eating pretty good, although he is becoming more and more picky
* eating snacks now and drinks apple juice and water during the day, in between nursing/bottles
* still doing great with nursing, I'm the one who has to fight to keep my supply!
* Goes about 4 hours in between nurses
* Pulling up on everything
* STILL not sleeping through the night.. yawn
* has had his 3rd ear infection in 4 months... Dr says we may be on our way to the ENT's office soon
* still only two teeth... oh where oh where are your other teeth d?
* favorite thing is Hank, absolutely loves him
* loves his baths
* kisses the baby in the mirror now, too funny
* Is having a little stranger anxiety now.... freaked out at his 9 month appt. when the Dr got to close
* loves to read at bedtime every night and now helps me turn the pages and lift the flaps
* goes to bed at 8:00-8:30
* Such an easy going personality!!

We love you sweet boy!! I cannot wait to see what the future will bring!

Happy Halloween!!!

Davis had a wonderful first Halloween!

We had him dedicated to the Lord Sunday morning, followed by a wonderful lunch at my moms.
It was so special to have all of our family and friends present for this wonderful event. He was such a good boy too, besides trying to eat my necklace! He smiled and flirted with the crowd :)

Later in the afternoon we took him to a Halloween festival at a local museum/park. We had such a good time visiting with friends and enjoying each others company. After we finished up at Goodwood we went home to eat dinner and take little D around the block to visit neighbors. He loved it! such a cute little pumpkin!!

We had such a wonderful time!! Thanks WD for taking these pictures!

Davis and Dawson with their grandmothers :)

Davis LOVES Dawson! These two are gonna cause us some trouble one day...

Not only are Dawson's daddy and Gary good friends but Dawson's mommy is a very special friend to me... and the grandmothers have been best friends for years! I love small towns :)
