Too Funny

One of the disadvantages of having a tall kid (he has been off the charts since his 2 week visit) is
he can reach pretty much anything. Today I set my water on our dining room table and the
next thing I know he had it poured all over the rug (thank goodness it was just water) and then preceeded to suck it off of the rug.
I couldn't help but laugh. His sippy cup was sitting right beside me but I guess it just wasn't good enough.

It's Tricky

John Thomas is standing on his own and we expect him to start walking anyday now.

This picture was taken Christmas morning and it is one of my favorites.

Mommy + Daddy = Me

John Thomas is in the middle (as if you couldn't tell from the age of the picture), I think he is combination of us both. I am actually a year old in this picture and I am not sure how old Scott is.

Old Picutres

My camera is still being repaired so I thought I would just post some old pictures that are stored on my computer. Hopefully we will have the camera back soon.

9 Months

I totally forgot about getting John Thomas' 9 months portraits so I had to make a quick appointment at Portrait Innovations. I thought they turned out OK and I can't wait to do his 1 year. He has grown so much and at his last Dr.'s appt. he was in the 95th percentile in weight and still off the charts in height (he is SO tall). He says "mama, dada, and every once in a while we will get a baba when he is waving bye, he has 7 teeth and is currently cutting the 8th. I have really enjoyed being home with him the past 2 weeks and it is going to be hard to return to work tomorrow.

I thought with having 2 weeks off that I would keep up with the blog better but I didn't. We had a busy and blessed Christmas. My "new" camera is broken so I can't upload any of my photos at the moment, I am taking it back tomorrow and will try to get some pictures on here ASAP. These are pictures of John Thomas sitting in a chair that he got for Christmas. This chair was in the children's dept. of my childhood church. My Dad sat in one of these chairs every sunday of his childhood as well as my brother and me. It is special to me and I hope it will mean something to John Thomas one day, Scott and I can't decide if we want to sand it and stain it or just leave it alone.
