71 degrees

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

It is rainy and hot here today. Two weeks ago, it was so cold you could turn on your heat and this morning, before the sun even came up, it was 71 degrees outside. Whats up with that? I am so ready for cool weather all the time. I just have so many cute clothes to put on this sweet boy that.... um... match! HA!

Holden's clothes don't match at all! HA! And his shorts are 9 month which means they will probably fall off of him at least once today. For the past few days, he had decided to give up his morning nap and just take one nap in the afternoon and one about the time we are in the car on the way home. But I am VERY happy to say this morning he took an hour nap! YAHOO!! But does that mean he won't take one this afternoon?? Only time will tell!

I have so many pictures to load about our amazing trip to Miami! We had such an amazing time visiting with so many family members!  And so many fun memories that we want to be remembered forever!

Holden has been so lucky to meet and visit with so many of his family members on both sides of our families in the past three week. He has been even more lucky to be able to spend a lot of time with all FIVE of his GREAT Grandparents over the past three weeks! Do I have pictures to show for it? Absolutely! Do I need to upload them? Yep!

I am SOO very excited about the next two months in our lives! We have so many things planned with some AMAZING friends and family members that I just can not wait for! From many 1st birthdays to a Halloween costume contest when the only contestant is Holden. HA! I wonder who will win? : ) From corn mazes to dinner with friends who are just like family!

We are so very lucky to have so many wonderful people in our life and I hope that each and every one of you know how awesome you are to us!

Happy 10 Month Birthday Holden!

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

It's official. My baby boy is TEN months old! Ten! When did this happen? Ok so maybe he turned 10 months a few or 3 days ago but we were on a car trip back from Miami and I don't think he was in the mood or wanted to take any picture or sit still for anything once he was out of is car seat! Sweet Holden here is a little of what you are up to at TEN months!
{I did forget to update about his 9 month appt so how... he was 19 1/2 lbs and in the 35% and 28 1/2 inches and in the 53%... or something like that}
You are wearing size 3 diapers still. Cloths of course are crazy for you. Shorts 3-6 months and big but I gave up on 0-3, Pants 6-12 month for lenght and hope they don't fall off, and shirts either 6-12 or 12-18 because you are just so long.
You are now taking about 3 naps a day at about 9, 12 and around 4 on the way home from Campbell's house.
You go to bed between 7:30 and 8:30 most nights

You are such a happy baby and loves people! On our trip last week to MIA he was passed around all week to people he hadn't ever seen before or hadn't since he was only a few days old and he didn't mind at all!
You just got back from a TEN hour trip in the car and you did WONDERFUL!!! Mommy and Daddy were SO proud of you!!
You love to clap and talk
Still no teeth but we aren't worried about them : ) They will come in when they are good and ready!
You are a crawling machine and EVERYWHERE and VERY fast!
You love Elmo, any ball toys, lights, music and loved spending the week with your favorite cousin in the whole world Sophia.. ok so maybe she is your only cousin but you love her so much!
Sophia gave you your first real nick name last week. It was really cute because she couldn't say Holden so she calls you "Hodie". When she says it it sounds like Ho-die and I am so mad we didn't get it on video cause it was SOOO cute!
You like to eat. Sometime. You aren't picky about what you eat but some times you will go a few days and not eat much at all and then the next you eat a ton.
But you do eat just about everything I feed you! 
You got your first tattoo last week. Sorry Grandma : ) It did come off in the bath tub! HA! Aunt Diana gave it to you and then gave herself one too and it was super cute!
I am happy to say that you are going to have a new girlfriend in March!! Campbell's Mommy is going to have a sweet baby girl and you are more than welcome to marry her! Plus you are best friends with her big brother Cam and you love her Mommy and Daddy so this might just be more than perfect! But you do have many other girlfriends too. You are just such a HUGE flirt!
Does your onesie look familiar?? That is because you wore the same one HERE in your one month pictures. In a smaller size of course!

Holden, You are the best thing that has ever happened to your Daddy and I! We love you more and more each day and thank God that he chose us to be your parents! You are such a joy and bring so many smiles to our face each day! We love you so much sweet boy more and more every day!

Driving Away

Monday, October 11, 2010

The other day we put Holden is his car that his Best Friend {ok he has many BF's} Jacob gave him. It used to be Jacob's but now he is too big for it so he was nice enough to give it to Holden to have. And Holden loves it!

 He was moving the steering wheel and everything like he was really driving! It was so cute!!
Honking the horn to make sure everyone is out of his way! HA!

Here Kitty, Kitty...

So Holden has found our cat Hoochie's water bowl in our bathroom. He LOVES water and was so excited to find some that he could reach. He went to town splashing away! And what is a good Mommy to do?? Grab the camera and take a ton of pictures of course!! Oh how I love you sweet boy!

Caught with your hand in Hoochie's water!

Splashing away!
Maybe he thought UGA would back him up if he got in trouble because he brought him in the bathroom too!
He was not happy that I made him stop playing with the water but it was deff bath time!

Hip, Hip, Hooray!!

Hip, Hip, Hooray! Just a little over a day until we are leaving to see this ADORABLE face!! Our sweet niece Sophia who we love so much! Last time they were here was right after Holden was born so I wasn't able to hold her or play with her much. But this time we are going to play so much and have so much fun!! We love you Sophia and we are coming to see you!! See you soon!!

{Also, I have NO idea why I can't get the underline to turn off! LOL Oh well!!}

Pumpkin fun!

Monday, October 4, 2010

Well hello there! I have been a little out of the blogging world for a little bit I feel like. After having Cam Man for a week, I think Jack and I took a week off from doing anything at night and just had fun playing this Holden every night. He is SOO much fun right now and he has the funniest little personality! We have had the BEST weekend lately hanging out with the best friends, family, and neighbors that we could EVER ask for! We are soo very lucky to have so many wonderful people around us every day!  Last weekend, we started the weekend off having a bon fire in the back yard of course. This is becoming an every weekend thing at our house. We have a little fire pit in our backyard and every weekend {on Friday and Saturday and sometimes Sunday too} almost everyone of our neighbors in both buildings comes over for the fire. It is so much fun and a great way to bond with all of your neighbors! Saturday we went and walked around the outlet mall looking for a few things for Holden and then met up with our friends Mandy and Bill for dinner. Then of course came home for another bon fire with our awesome neighbors! : ) Sunday we got up and went to Burt's Pumpkin Patch. It is super close to our house and if you live in North Georgia or so I would highly recommend going there! There were a TON of people there but it is so huge that it doesn't even matter! I even managed to get a few ok many pictures of Holden! There are hundreds and hundreds of pumpkins there. It was freezing when we were there so we weren't there too long but I got some good ones!

 One of my favorites from the day!
 Other Favorite!

 This lip get me every time! He had just fallen between these pumpkins and it was super cold so he just wanted to be held at this point.

 Not sure about them yet...

 His favorite new thing to do is clap at everything!

We had so much fun up at Burt's and I hope that we can make this a family tradition and go back every year!
