fun times

We have had a very uneventful couple of days. Christopher is feeling a little under the weather with his first cold, runny nose and yellow stuff in his eyes. We have the humidifier going at night and I have been putting Vicks Vapor Rub for babies on his chest. He was real grumpy on Thurs. but seems to get a little better every day. Today I was folding clothes and he kept trying to play with the laundry basket so I decided to put he and some of his favorite toys in there and he LOVES it. Notice the pill bottle he is playing with. I filled it with rice a while back and it is one of his favorite toys. Funny the things they will play with. I think he may be trying to escape!!

Ella Claire

My good friend Monica and her baby Ella Claire came over to visit today. I have not seen them in so long and I can not get over how much Ella Claire has grown. Unfortunately both of these children look just like their daddies. :) maybe that will change one day

sweet peas

Ok we have been eating some nasty green beans for the past week and Christopher seems to enjoy them. To the point that he has gotten to where he won't eat his cereal after I feed him his green beans. Today we started with sweet peas and so far he DOES NOT like them. Everytime I would put a bite in his mouth he would have this look on his face like he was going to gag. Needless to say there was more on his bib and me than what went in his mouth.

night night

Bryan snuck this picture while we were asleep. Don't we look so peaceful?

Memorial Day

On Monday we went out to Chad and Maggies. They have a bunch of animals and Christopher enjoyed all of them. Here are some pictures of Chad playing with Christopher and Christopher playing with Paco. We also noticed today that Christopher has another tooth that has broken through.

Happy 1st Birthday Maddi

On Sunday we went to the lake for my friend Samantha's little girls 1st Birthday. It is Christopher's first birthday party to go to. We had a good time and Christopher had a good time eating the sunglasses, playing in the pool and eating ice cream.

Christopher's new pool

On Saturday Bryan decided to invite the neighbors over for a cookout on our new grill. We had a good time and the food was wonderful!!! Christopher decided to take a swim in his new pool with his bathtub toys.

sippy sup

here are some pics of Christopher drinking water for the first time out of his new sippy cup.

baby cousins

Travis and Briana brought over Baby Benjamin today. Please check out the size difference that 5 1/2 months has on a child. Right after these pics were taken Christopher tried to take off his bootie and smack him. He was just so curious.

We went to the Dr for our 6 month checkup yesterday and Christopher weighs a whopping 19 pounds 11 ounces and is 27 inches long. She said he looked perfect and to start giving him some veges. We attempted that tonight and we had green beans. I tasted them first and passed them on to Christopher they were gross. He seemed to do ok with them. Bryan thinks he was starving and that is why he ate them so well.

new stuff

On Monday we got some new toys and rode in our "BIG BOY" carseat for the first time. We went to the Firestation and got them to install it for us so we could make sure it was done the right way.

our new high chair

When we got home Sat from being in Mobile for a week we resorted to our new high chair to eat our cereal. Here are some before and after shots


On Friday I kept one of my best friends little boys. CARTER CARTER and he and Christopher were the best of friends. My dad has a vibrating chair that they loved.

6 months old

On Tuesday Christopher turned 6 months old. It is so hard to believe that he is already 6 months old. We rode to the Gulf to spend the day and have some seafood and Christopher got him some new shades.

mommys clothes

here is my first outfit I have made for Christopher to wear.


Christopher was Baptized on Mothers Day and it was a very special day. Dr. Dill performed the ceremony- he is also the minister that has been a huge part of my families lives. Baptizing and marrying most of us. It was a very special First Mothers Day for me.

my cousins

Here are some pictures of my nephews and Christophers cousins, Gray and Dalton.

Sunday afternoon

We had a pretty uneventful Sunday. We got up and went to church and headed to Sams to look around. Aunt Jennie and Uncle Buddy came to visit to see how BIG Christopher is. He looks like a monkey scratching his head and pits.

Christopher and Huey

We all know Huey is a little "SPECIAL" and Christopher can stay focused on him for a while and it is so funny to hear him laugh at Huey. Here are some pics I took today when Huey ventured up to Christopher. Christopher got a hold of Hueys beard and I bet there will not be many ventures made by Huey for a while.
