Happy Fall!

Well, it's FINALLY fall! We had a few cool days last week which were so very nice but then of course this weekend it soared to 94 degrees again! UGH. I'm so ready for cold weather! However, on a lighter note, Landry has been a very busy little man! We've played outside a lot, enjoyed spending time with his cousin's and has been helping his daddy do demolition!
We were outside last week and the little Mr. discovered the sprinklers! He played with them for about an hour off and on. He'd even go get his toys and put them in the water!

Needless to say, the kid was soaked! But he had such a great time! I hope he grows up loving the water!
Last weekend we went to Landry's cousin's birthday party. We had a good time even though he was really fussy. It was odd seeing as how he's usually a really good baby, but I think it may have to do with one of his front teeth finally coming in last week.
He got these glasses in his goody bag from the party and he LOVES them!
Getting ready for lunch! He's on table foods almost completely now. Some days he eats really well and other times he just spits everything back out!
I guess this is his attempt at a serious pose!
Also, last Friday Landry's girlfriend, Ella was born! She is absolutely precious and Landry is so taken with her (even though he did hit her) so we're working on being nice.
I've been thinking of painting my hutch in my kitchen. And after coming home one nite from visiting ms. Ella, I found Chris painting it for me!!!
Here it is BEFORE
Here's a sneek peek.....
And here it is! I LOVE it!! He distressed it and everything and it turned out even better than I ever hoped! He even took my Believe sign and painted it black and distressed it for me too so it will show up now! (that's why it's not in this pic)
Last Thursday was our 4 year anniversary and Chris suprised me with gorgeous flowers! He also had ordered a new lense for my camera! It's a zoom lense (which I used to take this picture!!) It is so great and I couldn't be happier!
Here's this little Mr. playing in (under) his bouncer outside
Of course I had to use my favorite subject to try out my new lens!! Isn't he just the most handsome thing ever?!
He's learned to bear crawl... so now he does it all.the.time. I swear I just knew he'd be walking by now since he crawled so early, but he just has no interest in it. It is funny to watch him bear crawl though, he's so good at it now he can almost run!
He also used to HATE grass! Any time you'd put him in it he'd get off asap. So yesterday I walked out in the yard to take the picture above and he follwed me out there!
Mom, me, Landry, Trissa and Kaleb went to park the other nite across from my parents new house and played. Landry really enjoyed the swings this time and I actually got several cute pictures! (go figure 2 days after I get a new camera lens, I leave it at home! Thanks mom for letting me borrow yours!)
Here's Kaleb and Landry (they're buds!)
Isn't my nephew handsome!

That's all folks!! Hope everyone is enjoying the beginning of fall! Have a fabulous week!

A little of this and that

It's been a while! For some reason, having a 9-10 month old is hard work! Needless to say, he keeps up on our toes! Luckily for me I can still put him in his bouncer with some puffs and he'll entertain himself for a little bit. Not so lucky for his Grammy that he learned how to crawl out of his walker. I guess he figured it slowed him down too much.
I love this picture! I think I have the most handsome little boy ever. And no I am not biased. wink wink.
We went to the cabin while Chris had several days off and enjoyed a long weekend in the mountains! Too bad we had to come home!

This is how Landry's trip went! He got to watch Tom and Jerry, PraiseBaby and the Flinstones. We borrowed my brother's dvd player and it worked out great! I'm thinking we'll invest in one of those someday!
This is how he loves to ride in his carseat. For some reason, he likes to prop his left foot up.

Chris' cousin's family got to join us for a few days. Collin is 2 1/2 months younger than Landry. They're finally starting to "play" with each other. (aka Landry hit's Collin, Collin retaliates and pulls Landry's hair)

Yum, mashed potatoes. Good stuff!
Rene', Josh, and Collin at the park
Our family at the park
And at the 8th wonder of the world... the Log. We had to stop on our way home. The last time we were here Landry slept thru the log, he enjoyed it much more this time. Can't you tell?!
And now to this weekend. Chris was off the whole weekend so we had lots of daddy time. Landry's figured out that if a door is cracked open he can go through it. And believe me, he does.
I guess he decided to eat his puffs in the garage.
His daddy making him come out back
For some reason, the kid will NOT put his knees down onto a rug. So he bear crawls til he gets past them. It's hilarious!
Addi and her buddy
Here's our attempt at his 10 month pictures
You can tell this great idea stands no chance whatsoever Here we go!
Back off dad, it's mine.
I told you I didn't want my monthly picture taken
Luckily I had dumped the water out that had been in here for the dogs.
Chris says Landry gets his noseyness from me
Seriously glad there wasn't water in there!
Playing with daddy after bathtime. Do you notice the total disaster in his room? He loves to pull his books off the shelves. Oh, and are those not the cutest butt-cheeks in the world!
Hi daddy, your hat is so cool!
I'll tell you one more time mom, NO more pictures!
Googly eyes at daddy
Do you ever notice how Landry is never looking at me? He always looks at something or someone else. I was telling Chris how jealous I was of other people because their babies would sit and look at the camera for their picture. That's obviously not going to happen for me.
I finally got a picture of the vampire teeth! Everyone I have talked to has thought this is the weirdest thing. Babies are not supposed to get fangs before they get their front teeth. Like my mom said though, when he bites you now, it's like a stapler going through you.

He decided that the right sleeve wasn't really workin' for him anymore an decided to get rid of it! Sometimes I wonder what is going through his little mind.
And this is how me and the hubby spent Saturday nite. A nice fire in the chimenea, cool weather, and a glass of wine. Perfect!
Hope everyone has a great week!
