Wild man with a hat

So I bought Christopher a baseball hat a long time ago thinking he would wear it b/c Bryan always wears a hat.... Well, I was wrong he HATES it. I have been trying to take his picture with it on and this is the only one I have gotten. Here are some more pictures of him being a wild man on the back of his Lightening McQueen car. I say get down and what does he do but lets go of the back and just stands there. I am gonna have my hands full when he gets older.

Haircut #2

On Saturday, we all headed to get haircuts. We were all in desperate need of one so we made it a family affair. Christopher was not so sure about this haircut so he has a few messed up places that I will have fo fix later. There are some before and after pics of him with his haircut. He looks like a big boy now and it makes me so sad how old he looks. After we got haircuts we ran a few calls with Bryan and then we headed to the park with the rest of Birmingham. It was a pretty day and everyone was taking advantage of it. We had fun running around and going down slides. We stopped by and picked up dinner and headed home to rest. We have had a busy fun filled day.

Lazy Thursday

Today has been pretty uneventful. We went to the shop to eat lunch with Bryan and then Christopher and I went to the firestation to get his carseat turned around so he can now see where he is going. I really think he likes it, he can see everything in front of him now instead of having to look at himself the whole time in his little mirror. We came home and played, he has started standing on his Lightening McQueen car and when I tell him to get down he takes his hands off the back and is just standing on the seat. What am I going to do when he is older. There is no holding him backhe is a daredevil and love climbing on things and making me nervous. We went to Wal Mart and Best Buy with Bryan tonight also and got a few groceries and a few other things we didn't need. Here are some pics of our day.

My CRAZY kid

When I give Christopher snacks throughout the day I put them in a bowl and put them on the sofa and he knows that is where they stay. He usually does pretty good leaving it there, but the other day I left him in the den by himself while I went in the kitchen to start fixing dinner and I heard him laughing so hard. I went to the door to see what was going on and he had taken his cup full of Cheerios and fallen and they were all over the floor. As he would go and try to pick them up and put them back in his bowl Huey would eat it before he could pick it up. It was so cute and obviously very funny to Christopher. Here are some pics of Christopher and Huey eating Cheerios together.

Wednesday fun

Well today I had to go to the shop to help Bryan with some paperwork so Briana ( Travis' wife) and Baby Benjamin came to watch Christopher for me for a few hours. As soon as she got here I put him down for a nap and guess what that little monster did? He slept for 3 hours. I mean he NEVER does that for me, 20 minutes maybe but never 3 hours since he was a baby baby. He must have been super tired for some reason. After I got home Briana and Baby Benjamin stayed and played for a while so it was good to let the cousins play together. Here are a few pics of the boys with some strange looks on their faces.

Playdate with Maddi

Today Christopher and I went over to my friend Samantha's house. She has the cutest little girl named Maddi that cracks me up. We very rarely get to see them and hang out so it was a good visit. They played so hard together and ate a ton, as usual Christopher was asleep before we got out of their neighborhood. Here are some pics of them playing together.

Birthday party

We have had a busy busy day today. First we went to our friend Jackson's first birthday party. We had a good time and Christopher really enjoyed the cheese, balloons and cake. When we left the party we headed over to our friends Ella Claire, Aunt Monica and Uncle Crash's house to visit. They had such a good time playing together. They pulled out toys, got pushed on toys, played with wet wipes., Crash even got in the floor with them and they had a 3 man band going on. I love watching Christopher play (well) with other children (and adults too).

Ball of FUN

We bought Christopher this ball pit for Christmas and we totally forgot to give it to him. We decided to break it out tonight and see how he liked it. Once he found out how to get in it he was in heaven. Bryan even got in there with him (as far as he could get).

Just playin

We are just hanging out at the house today. It is cold and yucky so we are staying put. Here are some pics of Christopher playing with his Lightening McQueen car he got from Maw Maw and Paw Paw for his b'day. For some reason he always gets on it backwards and his big ole hiney makes all the horns beep andmake noises.

Well we finally took Christopher out in his buggy he got for his bday. He was kicked back riding down the street waving at everything. It was so cute. Here are some pics of him in his buggy in the house, he loves riding around the living room or just pushing it around. He is at such a funny stage right now. He makes me laugh every day. :) We went out to dinner with some of Bryans friends tonight and as we were leaving we got a compliment on how well behaved Christopher was. A little old lady stopped me and told me he was a very well behaved child and told me I was a great mommy. That is always good to hear.
