For this child I prayed, and the LORD has granted me my petition that I made to him. 1 Samuel 1:27

Little Hands, Big Trucks

There was only one thing on the agenda this weekend...Little Hands, Big Trucks.  Sam has talked about it since last October, and he was so excited.  We got there right at 9:00 when it started, and the boys got to meet the firemen and use the fire hose.  Then we made our way to every truck, tractor, backhoe, and crane they had.  Sweet Thomas cruised in the stroller and just took it all in.  Other than LHBT, we just spent the weekend together.  We went mattress shopping, made s'mores with Genise, played outside, and took walks. These are the days!

The boys used pots and pans as drums Saturday morning. It was hilarious!

7 Months: TCM

Thomas was seven months old yesterday.  He is growing so quickly!  He really started to show his personality this month, and it's so fun!  

Weight: somewhere around 20 1/2 pounds (We don't have scales in our house.)
Clothing size: 9 month and some 12 month
Diaper size: 3
Sleeping: He sleeps all night from about 8:30-6:00 and usually takes 2 good naps a day.
Eating: He still nurses about every 4 hours and eats baby food at supper time. We haven't found a vegetable he doesn't like. 

He loves watching his brothers.  He jabbers a lot (mostly da da and squeals).  He can scoot across the floor, which is hilarious.  He is trying to crawl, but he can't quite figure it out.  It won't be long.  He also tries to pull up on things, especially our legs.

Thomas is the sweetest baby, and we are so blessed!!

He kept lunging forward, and he thought it was so funny.

I want to always remember those cheeks, those rolls, and that belly.

Weekend with Aimee and Allie Ruth

We had the best weekend with Aimee and Allie Ruth.  They came down Saturday morning and left this afternoon.  We just hung out at the house,went out to eat, and went to church this morning, but as I told Sean after they left, it did my soul good having Aimee here.  The boys had a blast with Allie Ruth, and they've been missing her all afternoon.  I'm kicking myself for not taking more pictures.
