Loooong Update!!

We have had lots and lots of fun things going on these past few weeks. Weston is doing good and still just as sweet as ever. He turned nine months old on the 27th. I cant believe we have a nine month old! I feel like we just came home with him! When we went to the doctor for his nine month checkup the doctor said both of his ears were infected again so that makes #4. They want to keep an eye on it and if he keeps having problems we will go to the specialist to talk about putting tubes in. It makes us sad to see him sick so much. I know this is a minor thing that lots of babies deal with, but I am still hoping he gets better so he doesn't have to go through that. So, come on Spring!! But we are still very thankful for a mostly healthy baby. He is so close to crawling. He is up on all fours rocking and also does this really hilarious "army man crawl". Its so cute and its been so fun to watch him learn all theses different ways to get around. And as of right now he still doesn't have ANY teeth! none, zero, zip! I know he wants to eat more food than he can right now, but he gets choked too easy if he cant gum it enough! So Puffs are still his favorite snack for now. And he's starting to grow more hair too, enough that I can actually brush. ha! Its all different lengths and wispy but at least he's getting some! So funny! Our bald toothless baby! We celebrated Myles 1st Birthday on the February the 11Th and went to his adorable birthday party that Saturday, and then Annabelle's 1st Birthday last week. Collin and Erin had us over for a birthday dinner on Tuesday and then her party was on Saturday. It was all so much fun and the parties were all so cute! It made me even more excited for Weston's first birthday...but I'm in no hurry for it to get here. We're just trying to savor every moment of him still being a baby! Last Sunday we had baby dedications at church. It was so special in so many ways. Weston got to be dedicated with his cousin and 2 other babies in our small group. It was such a sweet time and there were so many people there to show their love and support for all the babies. So much of our family came and I was so thankful to see EACH of their faces there. And so was Weston! We don't have any big plans for the weekend but lots of little plans: *I've GOT to do some cleaning that's way overdue! UGH!! *Carters in having another big 50% off sale and I got a 20% off coupon, so we're gonna try to get Weston some spring/summer clothes. Plus they have another $10 diaper bag offer and ours has about had it so I would like to get that too. *We're gonna try to go the boys' baseball games Saturday if it's warm enough. Last week Cole said "I hope Weston can come to my first game." SO SWEET!! *I have to go to Hobby Lobby to get all the supplies to make Aurora and Maddie's birthday banners and start working on them. I've been a banner making fool since Kelly showed me how. They are so much fun to make and a special thing to give to people for their parties. FUN!! *Hopefully at some point sneak in and see anther couple in our small group that just had their baby last night, Liviana Ruth Parker :-) awwww! * Then we have our normal Sunday morning church and Sunday night small group too! Lots of fun things but most of all Im looking forward to doing it ALL with Carson and Weston. and spending time with other people we love. I LOVE THE WEEKEND!!! Ok, and P.S. I know I am waaaaaaay overdue for an update. I don't know why, but I feel like I cant blog if I don't have pictures to go with a post, but that's LAME-O and and I need to just write anyways or I will end up with a looooong blog like this! Sorry!! Hope everyone has a great weekend with lots of fun and love!!
