Brooks – 8 Months!

Baby Brooks, you are 8 months old! I can’t believe how fast this first year is flying by! Here’s what you’re up to!

This month you went to your first movie-Frozen! You loved it! You slept for part of the movie and just sat in my lap for the other part and watched quietly! I took you, Sissy, Griff, Pey Pey & Noah by myself. Because I’m Superwoman!DSC_0128

You are still in a size 3 diaper. You are in 9-12 month clothes.DSC_0125

Figured out how to eat the sticker this month…DSC_0158 People are still calling you “she” and “girl”…Your eyelashes keep getting longer!DSC_0168

Bath time is one of your favorite parts of the day! You wait until time for me to wash your hair and you latch on to my arm like a spider monkey! You think this is the funniest thing ever!

Your breastfeeding/eating schedule is still exactly like last month!DSC_0139

Still no teeth, mommy is thankful for THAT! ;)

Sitting up like a pro!DSC_0197

You became a big cousin to Cason this month. You LOVE him! It’s fun to watch!

You are seriously the best baby. I drag you everywhere and you are just happy where ever!

Just to name a few…This month you’ve been to a closing…


You stayed with me at the hospital all day when Cason was born…IMG_20131205_085034 

Went with me to the dermatologist…


And, of course, we spend a lot of time at the office!

Gingerbread Houses!

Each year for as long as I can remember I’ve done gingerbread houses with the kids! Over the weekend we made this year’s! I went with the village this time so that everyone could have their own. SCORE! Huge hit!

I mean, really? How cute is he? DSC_0975DSC_0994 DSC_0997 DSC_1000

Thanksgiving may very well be my favorite holiday! It’s definitely right up there with Christmas! I love spending time with family and you always have a few days to recover before returning to work!


Yes, the tree was up before Thanksgiving this year! I ALWAYS wait until the weekend after Thanksgiving to put it up but I just could not wait this year!

I can’t do this post without telling this funny story…My Dad has a couple of pet turkeys. They are very tame and friendly. They are attracted to anything red. Wellll Griffin and Peyton had on red shirts when we were at their house. After lunch they went outside to play. We were sitting by a window when like two flashes of lightening Griffin and Peyton went running across the yard…the turkeys were chasing them, one flying, one running! Griffin and Peyton were terrified and white as sheets! So funny! ha!

Roll Tide!

Reece attended her first Bama game this past weekend! She had a blast! It was cold and rainy and she still had fun! Josh took her and the boys, I stayed home with B! Between the weather and breastfeeding it was best for us to stay home! It was a pretty low-key game for our Tide so it was the perfect first game for her! IMG_20131126_093920 ROLL TIDE and bring on the Iron Bowl!

Brooks – 7 Months!

Brooks, you are 7 MONTHS OLD! Sheesh! Here’s what you’re up to these days!

Can we say ham?!DSC_0895 - Being cute, always!DSC_0885 - This age is such a joy! You have the sweetest little personality, everyone in the house is still fighting  over you. I thought by now this wouldn’t be an issue but you are just so lovable!DSC_0887

- You are pretty much sitting up!DSC_0888DSC_0892 - Still no teeth!

- Still breastfeeding like a champ! Yay! PawPaw started making your baby food this month, which is turning out great! You still eat the same foods as last month plus chicken! You also like pears now because red skin pears are a little sweeter so we use that to make your food! You nurse when you wake up, then eat rice cereal for breakfast, then you nurse mid-morning, you have two jars of food at lunch, nurse twice in the afternoon, have two jars at dinner, then pumped milk for bedtime which is Daddy time! If you wake in the night you have pumped milk or nurse.

- Still in size 3 diapers, Pampers Swaddlers are our FAV. They work best, hands down.

- 6-9 and 9 month clothes, with some 9-12 month mixed in.

- Still sporting those baby blue eyes, you’re welcome! haha!DSC_0909

- You finally have enough hair for a baby mohawk! YES! Griffin and Peyton are jealous, just as we knew they would be!

- You started sucking your TOES this month! WHAT?

- Mommy and Sissy call you “B”!

- This month you will become BIG COUSIN to Cason!! YAYYYYY!!!!!! You two will be BFF!IMG_20131121_155147 DSC_0911 DSC_0900 DSC_0926

We love you so much sweet boy!!!!
