Photo Dump

I feel the need just to dump these on ya! They are piling up and its stressing me out.. so here you go!

Davis and Hank playing on the couch, they love each other!

We went to "elf night" last night. It was great till it started pouring down rain.
He looks a little confused! ha

Hey boy! Gary's mother made Davis this adorable longall. She is AMAZING!

With the penguin

Last weekend we went to Victorian Christmas with the Normans. Brycie and Davis are buddies.. just like their mama's. This Santa was just wonderful!! So sweet

Sweet Brycie, Aunt ashy loves you

One of his many faces he gives us

Eating his cracker and trying to stay warm!

The weekend before that we did the Festival of Lights downtown... Daddy and Davis. D was too distracted by the floats!

Tub Time!

Playing in the water

Playing in the bubbles! We actually hardly use this seat anymore, I just put him in it at the beginning so I can bathe him and them I let him splash around the tub. Its hilarious.. he throws himself everywhere, splashing and putting his face in the water. Its so fun to watch him

Getting Real

Do you ever feel like you cant keep up????

The house needs to be vacuumed....

The laundry is piling up

(this little stinker sneaks into every picture.... don't just lay there Hank, FOLD SOMETHING!)

I cant keep my kitchen table cleared to save my life

I don't have a Christmas tree yet...

Davis's room STILL needs a few touches...

The guest bathroom needs to be painted....

and here I sit on a Friday night, baby in bed, dogs asleep on the couch, Gary had to go to work ... one of his stores got robbed(tis the season)

I'm hoping that this and steel magnolias will turn this week around

I know we have so much to be thankful for and believe me I am, but sometimes i feel the need to "keep it real"

Merry Christmas Ya'll!!

Sweet Verse

I came across this bible verse last night. I will have to say it is one of my favorites. Ive heard lately of some heart breaking losses, this verse brings me comfort.

"People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them. Mark 10:13-16

10 Months

He is actually 10 1/2 months now....

Sweet sweet Davis you are 10 MONTHS! You are the most precious thing to us and are becoming such a sweet and talkative little thing. Love you to the moon and back...

* Size 12-18 mth clothes

* Size 3 diapers

* You have become very picky about your food here recently...sometimes you want it pureed and sometimes you want in in chunks

* tried avocados again mixed with a little applesauce and you LOVED it.

*Sweet Potatoes are still probably your favorite.

*You take 2 bottles a day when you are away from me. Usually one is formula and one is BM. Mommy is having supply issues so it looks like this will be the norm from here on. I'll be lucky if i can keep you going til a year!

* you have 5 teeth. Front two bottom ones and on top you have your 2 front ones and one coming in right next to your right one.

* you are becoming very talkative and are actually saying some more things now. Dada, mama(maaa, when your mad or crying) Baba (bye, Bye? or Bottle?)

* you have started to clap and I just love it. At the parade Saturday you pretty much clapped the whole time.. precious!

* When I start to sing the itsy bitsy spider to you you put your hands together as to mimic the motions that I do along with the song

* pulling and standing up everywhere. My new prediction is that you will be walking by 11 months.. we'll see

* Hank is still the coolest thing ever to you.

* You were sleeping 8:00- 5 but have not been feeling very good lately so you've been up and down with me all night mostly to comfort nurse. I don't have the heart to make you cry when your not feeling like yourself

* you take 2 naps a day. with a cat nap on the way home every day.

This is such a fun age and we are loving watching you learn and grow everyday. BUT(ha) along with this fun age comes a little bit of attitude. You are very opinionated and let us know when you are not happy. You scream and cry when I change your diaper or your clothes. you would think we were killing you! the back arching and rolling over. Boy oh boy... you are as sweet as can be but definitely have a fire in you too.

We are so looking forward to the next few weeks and all the festivities!!
