7 months

Yeah, so getting this little booger's picture made with his "sign of the month" is getting harder and harder. He is in to EVERYTHING! My mom actually caught Tripp on top of a basket the other day. He had climbed from a box and on to the top of the basket. I think he watches his big sister for tricks way too much! He continues to be a lot of fun and a happy baby, regardless of what his Grampy says! He thinks Lucy McLean hung the moon and she can make him laugh like crazy. He loves to swing and EAT EAT AND EAT SOME MORE!!! He stands up on everything now and can walk around furniture. He has beautiful blue eyes with eyelashes that most women would pay for. He grins with his mouth wide open and kisses with his mouth open too! We are enjoying every second with this little man!

The Rowan County Fair

My oh my what you see at a fair. I am hoping that God puts blinders on children and that they don't see what we as adults see! Have you ever looked at that People of WalMart website? It is seriously like that X's about 3,000I don't want Lucy McLean to get any ideas. On another note...Lucy McLean had a blast at the fair this year. We ate yummy, greasy, overpriced (except from the WRHS FFA booth)food...rode on rides and saw the animals from all of our local farms. Tripp even enjoyed some lemonade! Ryan wins the AWESOME daddy award for squeezing his 6 ft long legs in to all of the kiddie rides. We had no melt downs... not even when we left. Lucy McLean simply said "Bye Bye Fair...Have a Good Day"!

Rah Rah

As Sara put it perfectly, I have certainly had a "coming full circle moment'' the last two weeks. During both games, Lucy McLean has decided that she is now a cheerleader. She loves being out with my girls and "cheering with them". She even runs and flips. She has made the news paper, cable tv, and our local television's Friday Night Football! The girls are great with her and besides her being in their way on occassion, it has been pretty fun to watch! Here are some pictures from this big girl's adventures as a Falcon!

I love that she even prays with them!

3 Days for Crying Outloud!

Yep, we lasted three whole days at preschool before we "didn't get a smiley face". I knew this day was coming, but I didn't expect for it to happen so fast. Lucy McLean kicked a little boy because he was trying to get in the playhouse with her. Some may want to justify her actions (heck her mama kinda does), but dang if it isn't a little embarrassing to be in education and having a child that misbehaves at school. I felt a little better that my principal has had to go pick up his 3 year old because he was "getting a little too wild". What will she become?

1st Day of Preschool

She was a little excited! When I left, she said "Thanks mom. Love you. Bye Bye" She earned herself a smiley face. Let's see how long that lasts ;)

Life at Grammy & Grampy's House

We have officially been with Grammy and Grampy for a month. Things are going well BUT THE HOUSE IN BREVARD IS STILL FOR SALE. Lucy McLean and Tripp are loving having grandparents (and dogs, chickens, pigs, extended family members, etc) around. My mom is keeping the kids during the day while we are at work. I am not sure how she is doing it all. Lucy McLean is loving playing with puppies and welcomes her Grampy every afternoon when he gets home from work. She loves "Grampy's shop". I think it is mainly because he keeps Grampy cakes, chocolate, and sodas in his shop. We ride around in the golf cart and have been attending a lot of Falcon football games. It is good to be home!

6 months of pure sugar!

Our big man turned 6 months on the 20th of August. Here are a few things about this chunk a monk!
  • He weighs 21 pounds
  • He is 30 inches long
  • He loves food...all of it (especially pickles, tomatoes, bananas, and green beans)
  • He has been crawling for almost a month
  • He pulls up (when he does it in his crib, he can't figure out how to sit back down)
  • He still loves to watch his sister
  • He is obsessed with his Grammy
  • He is in a big boy carseat now and loves it
  • He likes to ride with the windows down
  • He sleeps with a blanket and his middle finger and ring finger in his mouth (like he is saying "I love you")
  • He grins with his mouth wide open
  • He grabs your face and tries to kiss you
  • He loves to take baths
  • He loves to be outside
  • He chases the dogs
  • He is still not in to sleeping all night. He wants to make sure his mama and daddy don't forget about him throughout the night!
  • He loves to swing
  • He is pure sugar and I could eat him up!

Our 29 month old is pretty sweet too! ;)
