Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day was wonderful! We spent some quality time as a family and enjoyed hanging out. The day started with a "Christening" from Garrett. I guess that it was not officially my first Mother's Day without getting peed on. I went to open his diaper and it went everywhere. Needless to say both Garrett and I both needed some cleaning after that one. Anyways, after that Bill put together one of Garrett's toys that we have had for a few months. We hung out on the floor with him and enjoyed time of laughter and smiles. Garrett loved his new toy. He actually sat up for about 10 minutes playing with it. The picture below is one of my new favorites.

After hanging out and enjoying some time together we decided to go the Razorback Baseball game. Lots of fun. It was sunny and warm so we had a chance to soak in the sun while we cheered on the HOGS. Not to mention they won against South Carolina 4-2. Overall I had a wonderful first Mother's Day. I hope that all the other Mothers' enjoyed their day as well.

Oh, we have been exploring solid foods. Today we tried sweet potatoes for the first time. He LOVED them. He was actually almost diving for the spoon when Bill was feeding him. This was the first time he was just ready for the next spoonful, we could not believe it. Anyways, another cute one of him.

We got a little picture happy this weekend. He is still working on this one, but he is getting better.

I don't know about you but we think he is pretty cute!

Just before Mommy's Day, I would like to pay tribute to a great Daddy! We love this Daddy!

More pictures

Ok so I guess I was overloading the blog with the last post so here are some more pics.

Just before he tipped over! opps.

What a face!!!! We love this little boy!

We are back

Hello all, sorry for the long delay between blogs. The semester is finally over yeah!!! Summer is here! Garrett is growing so fast. He is now almost 5 and a half months old. Not only is he now rolling over and proping himself up when he is on his belly, we are now working on sitting up. We tried putting him in a high chair at a resteraunt and he really did well. This has been a fun new adventure. He is talking more than ever and working on standing up. He can stand with our support for a few minutes and then he drops. These are the latest in the skill development.

We decided that we needed a weekend away two weeks ago. So we headed down to Mount Magazine, the tallest mountain in Arkansas. They have built a beautiful Lodge at the top of the mountain with lots of hiking trails. We were definately in our element. Garrett loved hiking too. We strapped him onto a carrier and went walking on the edge of the mountain. I would show you pictures, but our camera battery was dead. If you would like to view the mountain and our beautiful view check out the website.

Happy Birthday Grandma!!! We are so excited we are going to visit my parents in Orlando. Garrett wanted to be a messenger for this surprise. Isn't he cute!!!

Here are a few new pictures of our little man!

Pictures of Garrett and I at the Mount Magazine Lodge.

We took Garrett to the Red and White Spring Football game. It was so cute. He actually cried every time they sang the fight song or called the hogs, despite the cute Razorback Gear to cheer them on. I think it was because it was so loud he was not ready for the noise.

One of his many new tricks. He got a little bit of sun when we went out walking at Lake Fayetteville.
