My sweet boy, at 9:30p.m. Uncle Kyle trying REALLY hard to entertain Trying to figure out how much brownie can fit!!
Gone are the days when Paxton can go with me to the store or salon. When he was a baby we could not wait till he played and smiled...don't get me wrong, but....those days of sleeping in the baby carrier are GONE (and I miss them). We ventured out to the mall for the first time in awhile...and now the last time in awhile. He was terrible. I needed some new shirts for the growing belly and Paxton would have none of it. SueSue, Uncle Kyle and myself were all physically and mentally exhausted by Paxton at the mall. Uncle Kyle was extremely gracious and gave me a couple minutes to actually look around, but it was still a nightmare. He has caught an attitude: car keys, cell phones,THEY don't work anymore. And of course he would not sleep in the nice cozy stroller, but you would know the minute his bottom hit the car seat he went to sleep the little booger. We have learned that he is extremely sensitive. Whenever Rusty tells him no he gets beside himself, I must not bring the force because he shakes his head no at me and continues. This must be one of those growing stages all must adapt too...I miss you baby carrier. Did I mention he has a new bedtime of 10:00!!! We have done the crying thing it goes on for hours, We let him up for our own sanity. Here are a couple pics!!

We're back

" Entertaining himself" The best book ever invented My Sweetie Pie!!
We're back...we have been rather busy, I am not sure what we have been doing but we have been doing something. We are still not walking but I hear this is a blessing. We have not been sick at all the entire first year and then the year came...breathing treatments and horrible diarrhea for 8 days (the kind where you cut the clothes off)...thanks to Abby, Sarah, and Tiff who on our girls day "lay out at the pool" got to help me clean up Paxton's issues every hour. I truly appreciate it!! I am helping coach a soccer camp at church, 15 weeks pregnancy and blazing hot sun do not mix:) We have missed SueSue and Grandpat as they have taken a trip to Mexico. The good news is: our brick has arrived at 26 Brookhollow let's start building. Here are some candid shots of Paxton around the house. He absolutely loves to read, my mom bought this book were you record your voice and the child can read and turn the pages all by their self: I highly recommend, it gains me an extra 10 minutes a day. We have had a number of toys in the corner of the living room for months now, and yesterday it was as Santa had arrived and Paxton finally figured out/remembered they were there, so throughout the day lately I see him over there playing away. We also are no longer a vampire as you can see, Paxton's middle teeth have arrived. Paxton was thrilled to have a chair that was his size. He sits in it and just looks at the arm rests in disbelief that it could fit him so perfectly, thanks Big Daddy and Grandma!!
We will be heading to Belton for the Kennedy wedding, I can't wait to be there for a week and catch up with old friends... Hope all is well!!
