Big Boy Seat

Well, I was told that I haven't updated in a few days...so, I guess I had better!! There hasn't been a lot going on with us lately, but of course, I always have pictures! And...Luke did get his big boy carseat this weekend. It is still rear facing, but at least it is bigger and more comfortable for him!!

Luke's new pajama's....they glow in the dark!

Hey Mom...can I have some of this yummy stuff??

I think I need to text Memaw and see when she's coming to see me!

I have just "met" these ladies through blogworld as we all have baby boys about the same age. It's so nice to be able to read about other mommies and babies and see how Luke compares to everyone! Plus...I just love looking at pictures of other families! Be sure to visit their blogs! With this award, comes the rules:

7-Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they've been nominated.
So with the rules in place...here ya go!
7 Things You May Not Know About Me:
1. I went to a small country school from 1st grade-12th. At that time, everything was in one building with 3 different hallways (one was Elementary, one was the Jr. High wing and the other was the HS wing). And...I only had 19 in my graduating class!!! I loved the small school/family atmosphere.2.I was in FFA during High School....and showed sheep!! To this day, I hate sheep and will not use JOY dish soap!
3. I love to read! Unfortunately, since Luke has been born, I've only been able to start and finish 1 book.
4. I have many, many, many pictures framed around my house! Since I live far away from family and friends, I like to have reminders and see their "faces" constantly! Plus, Luke needs to see these pictures as he grows up.
5. I've met OJ Simpson! So, this may not be the greatest thing....but, I still think it's cool. We were headed to a NASCAR race in South Carolina and met him in the airport at Charolette. My Grandma didn't believe us until we showed her the picture of me and my dad with OJ.
6. I love sports! I really miss following my brother and watching him play...so many wonderful memories! Now, I have to settle for going to professional games or watching them on tv. I can't wait until Luke gets to start playing!! :) I'm going to be the best baseball mom ever!!!
7. I love holidays! I'm so excited that I get to decorate for Christmas for Luke. I am also looking forward to playing Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, etc.

This was a stretch...it's hard to come up with 7 things...so I hope I didn't bore you too much! Now, the 7 bloggers that I nominate are...

Tonight I finally got Luke's costume! I had seen it online and in some catalogs....but, I finally found it in a store and bought it! I CAN NOT WAIT FOR HIM TO DRESS UP FOR HALLOWEEN!!! Now, I'm just praying he will be walking...it won't be near as fun if I have to carry him! Oh, wait...I didn't tell you what the costume was! Well....I'm not going to....NOT YET!! You have to wait until Halloween! But...I will leave you with a few shots of the costume and maybe you can guess what he is going to be!

Luke Got Mail!

Today Luke received a surprise package from Memaw and Grandpa. Inside were several cool things (and even something for Mommy): a new pair of pajamas, a new shirt, a few small basketballs, Luke sized pumpkins...
and the most special gift....a jacket made by Memaw! It is the cutest jacket that Mommy has ever seen and she can't wait for it to get cool enough for Luke to wear it. It was hard to get a picture of the jacket on Luke because he won't sit still!! But....here it is!!!
Mommy's silly monkey with his new monkey jacket!

It even had a special tag "Made with love by Grandma"

Memaw...Luke says Thank You very much!!! He can't wait until you and Grandpa get here!!!

Yucky Bug!

Well...it took Luke a little over 10 months, but his first little bug has hit! Let me just recap our night/morning for you! Last night Luke seemed fine. We were eating dinner and while he took a drink, he started coughing/choking...kinda like when we drink and it goes down the wrong pipe. So, I lifted his arm, and all of a sudden, it was like a water facuet. He started spewing everywhere....GROSS!! I get him out of the high chair, get his clothes off and put him in the bathtub to get cleaned up. I thought everything was a-ok! Well, he threw up a little bit on the floor later, but it wasn't much. As I was cleaning it up, the faucet turned on again....all over my clean little boy AND the carpet. I cleaned him all up again and put new jammies on. I decided to give him some pedialyte since he had thrown everything up. I wanted to keep him hydrated. Well, wouldn't you know....he threw up all the pedialyte!!! Another pair of jammies!! Luke and I were both miserable! I couldn't get him to go to sleep, so we tried laying in my bed and the recliner. I finally got him to sleep about 1:30 or so. This morning, I gave him a little formula and some toast for breakfast. He seemed fine. So, we got all dressed and headed to the babysitters and work. Well....we got about a mile down the road and he threw up everywhere in the car!!! What a mess!! I called work and told them I wouldn't be making it! I just talked to the doctors office and they said I was doing everything right...yeah for me! He is only allowed to have pedialyte and I'm to give a little bit every 30 minutes or so. He's kept it down so far....so, let's pray that it stays down. She said "the bug" usually lasts from 24-48 hours. Oh, and let me just mention....this kid does not act sick. Luke has been talking up a storm, playing, laughing, watching tv and pushing his toys all over the house.
Since I gave you all the nasty details of our last 18 hours, I'll leave you with some pictures of my wonderful little man!

Happy Grandparent's Day!!

Today Luke is celebrating his 1st Grandparent's Day...we only wish Memaw and Grandpa were here to celebrate with him! He (and mommy, too) is so ready for them to get back from Ohio!!! Thank goodness they will be here in a little over a month (we haven't seen them since July)!


Grandmas and Grandpas are everything nice.
Like presents and candy and raspberry ice.
And chocolate fudge sundaes, with cherries on top.
And popcorn and peanuts and grape soda pop.
In winter or summer, in rain or in sun,
Grandmas and Grandpas are wonderful fun!

Here are a few pictures of Luke with his Memaw and Grandpa...

HAPPY GRANDPARENT'S DAY TO THE BEST GRANDPARENTS EVER!!!
Now....HURRY and get back to Texas!!

Snot Boy

Luke has had a horrible runny nose for the past few days. I'm guessing it's just allergies or the weather changing, because otherwise, he acts normal! But....he does HATE having his nose wiped! I wish this runny nose would hurry and run somewhere else, because I'm tired of fighting him to wipe it! Here are a few pictures from the weekend...and, of course, you can see the snotty nose in just about all of them!


I love books!

Look at me!!! I'm a big boy!

10 Months Old

Today my sweet baby boy is 10 months old! He is growing so fast! It's hard to believe that he will be a year old in just 2 short months. Of course, I already have his birthday party all figured out and most of the decorations bought! :) In the past month: his 8th tooth has finally broken through, he LOVES to eat big people food, he started sleeping through the night again!, has been standing on his own for just a few seconds and then sits down, climbs and/or crawls into EVERY cabinet or drawer that he can, babbling more (he's said momma a few times!),and he's started drinking a little bit of real milk! Luke is now wearing 12-18 month clothes and still wearing size 3 diapers. I LOVE BEING LUKE'S MOMMY!!
