7 Months!!!!

Who is 7 months old now? This big boy in his new high chair (thanks Aunt Jane!) eating some Puffs. Sorry for the blurry hand, its so hard to get a good picture these days cause Weston is constantly wiggling! He turned 7 months old on the 27th. Wessie-poo, what are you up to these days........ You are constantly smiling. Everyone that sees you talks about what a BEAUTIFUL smile you have. Its the sweetest smile ever! You take six 6 oz bottles a day. You eat cereal and fruit for breakfast and veggies and fruits for dinner. You are starting to eat snacks and will probably start eating lunch very soon too. You LOVE to eat and I'm always scared you're gonna make yourself sick because it takes so much food to fill you up! You are still sleeping like a champ. You have been since you were about 6 weeks old. Thank you! You love to sleep-guess you get that from your daddy! You are in size 9 month clothes and size 3 Pampers. You keep a yucky cough so we have to do breathing treatments with a nebulizer and Albuterol two times a day. I hope you get better so we don't have to do them anymore! You love to play on the floor and roll EVERYWHERE. When you get on your belly you flap your arms and legs and look like you're swimming. You want to go SO bad. I know you will probably be crawling very soon! You have just said your first word and guess what it is? Ma-Ma! You love to babble lots of different sounds but this one is my favorite. You love to take a bath in your duckie bath tub, love to have company over, love to go to the mall grocery store, or anywhere else where there is alot going on so you can check everything out, love to play with your cool toys you got for Christmas and you love to chew on EVERYTHING! You have been so much fun from the beginning and every day we have more and more fun with you. You are such a joy and blessing to us and to everyone you are around. I pray that I never take the time I have with you for granted and that I savor every single day and hour and minute of your sweet little life. Thank you for giving us the best 7 months! We look forward to every month ahead! Love you so much Wessie-poo!!!!!!!
Here's a picture of our little Santa Baby. Isn't he PRECIOUS!!!!!!We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We had the best one ever! We did lots of running here and there and spent time with lots of people we love!! Christmas Eve we: (I) got up, went grocery shopping, cooked some things for our family get-together went to the family get-together, went to Christmas Eve Service at Westhills, went home to get things ready for the next day, and mom and Steven came over to spend the night. Christmas Day we: Got up, ate breakfast together-Steven cooked us Christmas breakfast- we showed Weston all his gifts and opened our stockings together. Then we got ready went to the Britton's to spend the day over there, and came home to do dinner with Carson's dad and step-mom, Collin, Erin and Annabelle. I know I probably left some things out but that's the most of it. It was all so much fun and took lots of hustling around so we used most of the day Saturday to recooperate!

Christmas Countdown!!

So, Its Tuesday and now 3 days until Christmas. Its all been so exciting this year because we will be celebrating with Weston for the first time; even though I know he probably wont really even know whats going on! This year our family is trying not to go crazy and broke on getting presents for each other but to focus more on making the time we spend together special, and most importantly celebrating the real reason of Christmas....JESUS' BIRTHDAY!! I hope that Weston grows up always knowing what the celebration is all about. Its been a little hard (because everything is SO cute) but we have tried not to go overboard and buy him tons of things that he really doesnt need. The one big thing that I cant wait for him to have is his Radio Flyer pony. It is so adorable and I know he will be able to get use out of it for a long time, and we got it for a great deal which makes it even better! Then we got him some 9 month clothes that he needs since he is starting to bust out of his 6 month stuff. I'll have to get busy packing all those away too. Its always so sad to me to pack away clothes to bring in the bigger ones. It happens too fast!! Surprisingly our December has been pretty calm so far, but I think this week and next will make up for all that. Its all gonna be great though. I hope that I remember to stop and make sure that I am soaking it all in! Merry Christmas week!

Santa!

Last night we went to the Bass Pro Shop in Leeds AL so Weston could see Santa for the first time. He wasnt scared at all, I think he liked santa, especially his beard. He kept pulling on it and I think it was making Santa a little grumpy.....oh well! :-) We had a good time but we got home soooo late. Here's the only picture I have for now. BTW- I need to quit being so technologically challenged and learn how to upload pictures straight to the computer from my camera. I'll work on that.

Finally!

Ok, So Carson's been telling me for such a long time that I need to start blogging. There are so many things lately that we have been going through, with getting married and having our first baby and all that good stuff and this is such a good way to create something that you can look back on and actually remember all of those things! Plus, there are so many different blogs I've been following. It gets so addicting. Its like peoples lives are part of a story and once you start following, it becomes like a book that you cant put down! So welcome to my first post! YAY!
