Merry Christmas Warner - a little early!

Warner got one of his Christmas presents early this week - a little table & chairs just his size. Buddy & Kissy gave him this for Christmas and since it's a little hard to hide such a big present, we let him go ahead and start enjoying it. He LOVES this little table. He sits at it and reads his books, plays with his toys, and has even wanted to eat on it the past few nights - looks like we may be getting rid of the highchair sooner than we think!!

my little climber - he climbs on everything these days!!

Santa Clause - attempt #1

Warner was NOT impressed with Santa and would not even get near him. He was holding on to my dad for dear life. I grabbed him and put him on his lap thinking we could get one little picture - not happening!!! He screamed bloody murder, and I just couldn't do that to my precious little boy. So, we did not get a picture with Santa and probably won't this year, but there's always next year.

Now he's happy since Santa is out of sight!!

We're in Texas for the week and having a great time!!! Pat & Gibson, Kissy & Buddy, Chris, Warner & I and Meme - the whole gang is here!! The next time we are together our family will be a little bigger - Gibson is due in February and we can't wait to find out what she's having. Thank you Jesus for blessing our family in so many ways - and for giving us a holiday to just stop our busy lives and give thanks to You!!

Warner's 1st art project!!

I was so excited yesterday when we picked Warner up at the nursery and he had this in his hand!! His very first art project!! We color at home all the time, but I was so proud of this little project. I know this is only the first of many! He is really growing up...

Ready for Church

I'm posting this today because I won't get a chance tomorrow...
Has anybody heard that song by Kenny Chesney, "Don't Blink"? I don't really like the song, but the lyrics are so true.

Don't blink
Life goes faster than you think
Don't blink

I cannot believe that "my baby" will be 18 months old tomorrow. Where does the time go?? That sounds so old!! He is so much fun these days - climbing on everything he can get his little leg hiked up on, chattering to anyone that will listen, giving sweet kisses all the time...He is so FUNNY!! Chris & I are having a hard time disciplining him because it's so hard to not laugh at him. The other night he was in the ice machine taking the scooper, filling it with ice, and throwing the ice on the floor. Chris started laughing and I said "you can't laugh!!" Then he got a spanking and as I was explaining to him why he got a spanking he starts "talking" back to me with his little hands out like "I don't understand why I got a spanking."

10 facts about Warner:

  1. He LOVES to give kisses - all you have to say is 'Can I have a kiss?" and if he's in the mood he'll run at you and give a smack on the lips with sound effects and all.
  2. When it's time for bed, we say "Warner it's time to go night night." He'll take off down the hall saying "nigh nigh" and head for his bed.
  3. As soon as you put shoes on his feet he thinks he's going outside and will head for the back door.
  4. He is so happy when he wakes up (in the mornings or after his nap) and he'll want to play in his bed for a while. Some mornings he'll play in his bed for an hour before one of us goes and gets him.
  5. He loves his little elephant that he sleeps with and when I go in to check on him while he's sleeping, most of the time the elephant is over his face or right up next to his face.
  6. His favorite word is "no no no" and he is not afraid to use it!
  7. He is very shy around people he doesn't see often (takes him a little while to warm up) and he'll either hide between my legs or put his head down on m shoulder if I'm holding him. I LOVE that he feels so safe with me.
  8. He LOVES LOVES LOVES his paci!!!!!!! We have limited it to bedtime and nap time, but a lot of times he wants to play in his bed just so he can suck on that paci.
  9. When we are in the car he HAS to have his juice - it is not pretty when mommy forgets to bring the juice.
  10. He is a very good snuggler! In the mornings Chris usually goes and gets him and puts him in the bed with us and he will get right up next to us and snuggle. By far my favorite time of the day - what a great thing to wake up to every morning.

I love that I get to spend all day with this little blessing from God.

You can wrap this one in MAROON & WHITE!!!

YAY STATE!!! This was our first game in 2 years, and boy did it feel good to be back!! And even better to take our son to the place Chris and I love and the place where we fell in love. We had so much fun and even more fun since we won!!! GOOOOO STATE!!! Warner was so good during the game and even took a 45 minute nap amongst the screaming and cow bells!! We definitely decided we've gotta get to Starkville more - so much has changed!!

my boys walking to the game looking so sharp in their MSU attire

so entertained!!

airplane!!! Warner LOVES airplanes!!

we couldn't believe he slept through all the commotion - he slept through the interception and touchdown, halftime, and the interception after halftime - the most exciting parts of the game and he slept!!
