When Chris said the word t-ball a few months ago...he couldn't even get it out of his mouth before I said, "absolutely not!" I had many reasons...he's too young and do we really want to start that? were just two of the reasons. Well, I gave in and let them have their little father-son thing. Tonight we had our first game...and I'm sooo glad I gave in to this one. Warner did so good, but most importantly he had so much fun!! Go FNB! Go #3!!

8 months

Sweet baby boy,
you are 8 months old today!! There have been so many changes in you over the last month. First of all, you are growing! You are over 20 lbs now. You now have 2 teeth. I was beginning to wonder if they were ever going to show up...and then they came in right at the same time. You are fitting pretty perfectly in 18 month clothes. You are getting a little picky about eating, so I'm having to mix a little fruit in everything you eat. Sometimes I feel a little guilty making you eat some of the combinations - like bananas mixed with turkey. You are crawling EVERYWHERE!!! We are having to child proof things we never had to with your brother! You like to dump out any laundry basket you can find and play in the dirty clothes. Just recently you started opening drawers and pulling everything out. You are so fast! How can you go from just crawling to perfected crawling in such a short time? When I walk in your room to get you after a nap this is how I find are pulling up!!
I know I say this all the time, but you LOVE your brother!! Just today in the car he had you laughing harder than I've ever heard you laugh.



the funniest


You make my life so full.
We love you!!

Juke Joint Festival

Saturday I ran in my first 5K...with my daddy! How many people can say that they ran a race with their 60 year old dad?! This was my dad's 6th or 7th race - he even won 3rd place in his age group. It was such a speical moment that I will remember forever. We've already signed up for our second race together in a couple of weeks.

After the race we went back and got the rest of the crew. Warner loved the petting zoo

and riding this tractor

the pig races are one of our favorite things

it was such a fun day and such a great event for our community

Warner's 1st Field Day

Warner had his first field day at school this weekend. He was only involved in 2 events, but like his teacher said, to them it was like the Olympics. He did so good - participating correctly in all events. We were so proud of him!

The teams marching on to the field...Warner was the first in line for his team - Go Gold!

Ready to start his first event

Go Warner!!

His whole class lined up for the fun run

random pictures

Warner loves to take pictures with his brother. This morning he asked me to go get the camera.


Warner recently gave up his naps, but lots of times he will fall asleep at some point during the day...this day he fell asleep in time out.

This is where you'll find Jackson when we're outside - in his walker moving along.

These pictures are my new favorites! My heart just burst looking at them. I love my boys, love having boys, love how much they love each other, love dressing them, and love dressing them alike. Chris is such a good sport!

my baby - growing up too fast!

My boys have such a great daddy.
