Monday Madness

So mommy has been really busy with me, and she says that's why she hasn't posted anything in a long time. I think she just hasn't done it! I have so much to tell I don't know where to start!
I got to take my first trip to the pumpkin patch, and man did I have fun! I was into everything the animals, pumpkins, and people watching! I got to pick out my own pumpkin and bring it home! We haven't carved it yet that's next weekend Mommy says. We have spent alot of time with the Winter family because mommy says we will be moving soon, and she is going to miss her friends! Here is Uncle Justin being Uncle Justin! He makes me laugh so hard! Here are all the kiddos that went with us! We had so much fun. Here is Aunt Amy talking to me on the hayride back to the car! Here is Mommy and Daddy and Me. There was this giant pumpkin and I wanted to play on it so bad, but the people said George could only be touched! Yesterday we stayed home because I didn't feel good I think all my teeth are wanting to come in all at the same time and boy do they hurt! So Daddy and I watched the cowboys game...
Eventhough they lost I think today will be a good day! Mommy and I are off to see what kindof trouble we can find! Have a great day!

Labor Day!

It has been one crazy week around here! We had a suprise visit from my mom, Wee, and the girls! I haven't been able to upload any pictures yet, so the next post will have tons. It was a quick trip for them, but we had a blast. We went the the apple orchard (we didn't get to pick any because it's not season yet), but it was fun to go and see what all they had in their market! And like any trip we ventured to the Winter house and played some cornhole. Now I am here with Amy helping out with 3 babies and a 4 year old! We are having a blast! This week will be nothing but playdates. Have a great day!

Big boy!

Cannin and I had an eventful morning...I got up not feeling well and with a terrible headache! I figured most of the day would be spent around the house just resting, and watching Can but not getting to close just incase...I felt like I had been beat with a stick. Well after a bloody nose my son gave me I had enough. We had to get out of the house. We ventured to our favorite store...AWWWW!!!!! This is the best place for retail therapy. You can browse at all the clothes, bedding, and alot of stuff I wish I could afford. LOL. But I did find Cannin a little something he has been needing.His very own BIG BOY SEAT! He loves it I hate it...not the seat just the fact that he already needs one. :( I thought I was going to tear up taking out his infant carrier and base...but life goes on and those babies grow up! So when we get home there is a box at our front door! Thanks Grammie,Grumpies, and Uncle Jar-Jar. It of course was full of clothes and toys for Cannin, but that's ok because when you show him his new stuff his face just lights up!

But we are sorry Grammie...Cannin wanted to play with the box more than anything!

Last night this verse kept popping into my mind and I just felt I needed to share it...

Be still and know that I am GOD. I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world. Psalm 46:10

Almost Fall!

The weather here today would make you think it's fall around here! It never got over 70 degrees and was absolutely perfect. The sun was shining and there was a light breeze.
We didn't do much this weekend except spend some time with friends! Casey and the kids came in, and Danielle and Emilia came to visit too. We had some delicious food...thanks Amy and just spent the rest of the night catching up! We are trying to plan some fun things to do every month since we will all be going our seperate ways soon! :( I am so excited for Sept and Oct because I think almost every weekend we have something we would like to try and do!
Cannin is quite the ham lately. Everytime he sees a camera this is his new smile...HA!
He just cracks me up. It's something new everyday! Still no teeth or hair, but we are working on it. :) I can't believe he is almost 8 months old. Time surely does fly. I just thank God everyday I was blessed with such a precious and healthy baby boy! Have a good one!

Monday Blues!

video

So today was pretty blah! I was exhausted only after being up for a hour because Cannin was into everything! I was so excited for him to grow up fast, but now I wish he was still a newborn. He loves to eat, and if you saw his "little" thighs you would gather this. Today I got him playing in his jello though instead of trying to eat it. Usually anything he can pick up it goes directly to the mouth, but not this he would rather squish it between his fingers and make a huge mess...HA! My mom loves the videos so expect more of those, but what is a post without pictures...Here is my little stinker!


Have a good one!

OOPS!!!

I uploaded the wrong video I wanted to show tonight! Here is Cannin scooting all over the place! have a good one!
video
videoI wanted to do a short post tonight! We didn't make it to the metropark today like we had planned, but that's ok maybe next weekend! We are trying to keep stuff planned with our friends around here since we will be moving soon! Here is a video I took of Cannin tonight scooting...the quality is not very good, but I haven't used this little camera in forever so hopefully they will get better! It was a gorgeous day here...never got over 70. We had dinner with the Winter family at Buffalo Wild Wings! YUM! and then we came home to do a little yardwork! Hope you enjoy the video...!

Super Saturday!

There's not much to report these days! Dustin has had to work nights because of the ORI so I have spent alot of time with Amy and the boys! I've had a good time. I got to catch up on my scrapbooking, and just the latest gossip! LOL...Cannin has been such a good boy. I was kindof nervous being all alone with him while Dad was working late, but he has done so well! No more fighting when it's time for bed we just rock and he goes right to sleep! We spent most of the afternoon in the ER with an infected blister. It was really gross, and I didn't want it to be a spider bite or even staph infection. All is well he got some medicine to kill the infection, and the Dr. was really sweet. She drained it and tried her hardest to not hurt him! I'm really proud of myself because I usually don't do these kind of things alone. But I did! I think I need a suprise just like he got! HA.... Hopefully I'll have some pictures to post later on in the day! Have a great one!

Crazy

It has been one crazy week around here! That explains for no blogs...This weekend was Dustin's birthday. My parents came and suprised him on Wednesday! He was so shocked...He has always given mom a hard time about not being here on his birthday! We spent alot of time just hanging out. We went to the Winter home and ate ate ate! The boys made Dustin the sweetest cards! We played cornhole! Dad had never played before, and when I talked to him this morning he was making a set of boards! LOL Cannin decided he was going to start scooting around on Sunday, and now there is no stopping the boy! This is the first time we have all been together since Cannin was born so we figured a picture wouldn't hurt! It turned out to be a fabulous weekend! I am so glad Mom and Dad got to come and share this time with us! Let's hope this time passes fast till we see them again! Thanks again to Justin and Amy for having us over! Dad and Dustin playing cornhole!

Justin and Amy taking their turns!

Mom and Cannin having some Grammie time!

Tuesday....

So this is going to be short and sweet tonight! Nothing much to report from the homestead! Cannin has been exceptionally cranky because his teeth are almost through! Praise the Lord! This has been a long and drawn out thing for him and I know it hurts really bad! Here is a new picture of my love bug...thanks Amy I LOVE it!
My parents are coming tomorrow to suprise Dustin for his birthday! This has been the hardest secret to not let out! I'm so excited it's been about 2 months since we have seen them, and Can has changed so much since we left Texas! We have a fun filled weekend planned! Hope you have a great one!

Finally Friday!

Yesterday was just a lazy afternoon! Cannin and I stayed home and waited for Dustin to get off of work! I love to watch these 2 when he gets home. Cannin's face just lights up when he sees him drive up. He knows when he is late too! He threw the biggest fit the other day when dad was late. HA! We grilled steaks and baked potatoes last night, and they were so good! Today

we know dad has to work late because he is practicing playing G.I Joe for next weeks exercise so we are going to spend some time playing with Phoenix and the boys at Aunt Amy's today! Here is my little Champ ready to go!Cannin is still eating very well! We haven't had anymore tummy issues, and he is now eating the meals! YUCK! He loves them though. I guess 6 months is the magic age because he is a totally different kid! He is the easiest thing to ever take care of. Well we hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Hanging Out!


This past week we had some visitors come and stay with us! Casey and the kids came from Marysville for a mini-vacation! I hope they had a blast because we sure did! With 4 kids there was never a dull moment :) Cannin loved having the girls here he never took his eye off of them. Us ladies went shopping where we met up with Danielle and Emilia! Friday Amy and her parents made it home to Ohio so we went and spent some time visiting with them! Amy's mom made fried chicken, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, and fresh greenbeans! It was delicious! Thanks Grandma Cindy! Cannin and Makenna thought they needed popcicles because it was so hot out! Here they are enjoying them!Cannin met a new pal this weekend too! He is exactly a month older than him and they played so well together! This is him and Phoenix. He is a doll. Amy watches him now while his mom goes to school so I'm sure there will be some playgroups! Keigan and Cannin had a tons of fun this week just loungin around. Keigan decided to roll over for the first time, have cereal from a spoon, and sit in a highchair and bumpo! He was full of many firsts! The picture at the top is one we took this weekend of all the kiddos except Emilia she is sick! I just thought I would share!

Have a great week!

Another day of nothing much! Cannin and I stayed inside most of the day. It is so sunny here right now, and I would love to take him outside but we have NO shade. So we played and watched a little Baby Einstein. We started out the day with a new breakfast! We tried the yo-baby yogurt, and he loved it. It didn't seem to hurt his tummy at all! YAY!!! We are trying some different foods for him that don't hurt his tummy so far so good! Here is Cannin's new walker. He scoots along on the kitchen floor mainly backwards, but you gotta start somewhere. Ryan decided she wanted to play with Cannin too. He watches every move and just laughs at her.Cannin loves to sit up in his highchair for dinner. Here he is eating some cereal with Daddy.
Then it was bathtime. I think this is his favorite part of the day. He is going to be my little fish. He just splashes and playes with his ducks. Hope everyone has a great day!

Super Sunday~


This weekend we spent time with some friends up the street! We had a cookout and played games. It was nice to get out of the house for a while! Cannin is great almost crawling...trying to push up to walk. I sit here listening to him with the hickups and he is not too happy about them! Friday Aunt Amy and the boys come back to Ohio with her parents and we can't wait! We are so excited to see them! I am going to fix them some dinner Friday since they will be driving in...Amy tell your dad biscuits will be included! LOL Have a great day!

Family

Now that Cannin is 6 months old it was time for new family pictures! We had a blast
watching this little ham! The camera came out and so did the hugest grin ever. There is a picture hanging in the place I have loved ever since Cannin was a newborn, and yesterday because he is able to sit up they did it for me! I love that fish! There were so many to choose from that were really good, and of course it was so hard. I managed though and didn't even spend a small fortune! Other than that there was nothing fabulous about our day! I thank God everyday though because eventhough we didn't have anything special that happened. Everyday is special to us because of that little boy, and we try to make the most of it even if we stay in our pajamas all day long.

Cannin is napping so I figured I would sneak in a line or 2! It finally stopped raining, and I am waiting on him to wake up so we can have some retail therapy! I have a gift certificate on the way to have family pictures done so I think we all need new outfits for that! Hopefully by the end of the week I will have some posted! Last night Dustin and I went out to dinner at the Olive Garden...so yummy! There is really nothing more going on around here...I am always busy chasing after this little guy! but hey it's part of the job, and I love it! He has done very well with his cup! I can't believe how big he has gotten. He does so much now and is at the perfect playing age! Hopefully we will find some good deals, but we are off to shop till we drop!
Have a great day!

Terrific Tuesday!

It was one of those days where Cannin and I never left the house. Which means we didn't get dressed. We sayed in our jammies all day! Boy did we have a blast. Cannin hasn't been sleeping well again at night, so it was nice to just relax. We played and watched movies. He is still in love with baby einstein, but we have been trying some Disney movies too! (Those are my favorite.) Other than this there is not much to report from the home front! The weather has been fabulous...very breezy not over 80 def not like Texas heat that I'm so used to! You can actually walk outside and are still be able to breathe. ha!Here is Cannin after breakfast! He decided he wanted to try and feed himself. You see it didn't work out very well! So he has decided he doesn't want to be a baby anymore I swear. You can't hold him unless you are standing, he would rather lay in the floor and play, he gets so upset if he can't figure something out, or you take something away from him. He is definately all -boy!
Cannin loves when Daddy comes home. He gets so excited so I grabbed a picture of them before he went to change! It is so sweet to see them together. I just laugh in between the scares. I say scares because these 2 rough house like no other already. I walked into the house yesterday to witness this! Oh my did momma almost fall over! I know he is okay, but to me he is still a little baby and to young for this! I look forward to whatever else I'm in store for with these 2! Have a blessed day!

Sleepy Monday...

Today was one of the hardest days I have had in along time. Cannin didn't want to sleep, and when he did finally give it up he whined all night! Which means when babies don't sleep neither do mommies! But that's ok...We made it just fine just a little slower than normal. ha! These past few days have been some troubled ones. Cannin had been really sick, not eating, and just flat out not feeling good. I started to get really concerned when this child of mine doesn't want to eat. So not like him. I walked away with an answer from the dr. I wasn't very pleased with..."Oh I'm sorry...wish I could tell you what was wrong with him." ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Few days later I bypassed the base hospital and took him straight to Children's E.R. this was the worst thing in the world...No one knew why he was so sick...He had blood work done,x-rays of his tummy, and a head c-t. Talk about one scared momma....I cried more than he did. He was such the trooper! I can't tell you how happy I am to say after all that he was diagnoised with acid reflux! I mean really we went through all that for acid reflux, but in another sense I am so happy that's all it is, and God truely answered our prayers! I prayed so hard for this little one and for him to be ill just breaks my heart! Here is Cannin after all the test and finally home with his owies!

For being so good Mommy took him, Ashton, and Owen to meet with Casey, Danielle, and their little ones to Chuck E. Cheese. He loved looking at that big mouse! I will have more pictures to post of that trip tomorrow!

Have a blessed day!

Housesitting...

This weekend we are house and pet sitting for the Winter's while they venture off to Indiana to see their family! Nothing much to report here. We think we got Cannin finally squared away on his meds he will need, and he is feeling much better. He had a dr. appt. Friday and they said everything looks great he is progressing ahead of schedule and is right on time with his growth! He almosts weighs enough to be in a big boy seat that's front facing... He will love it because he hates the car and hopefully seeing us will help. I am just trying to find the right one now! We got a big box from Grammie, Grumpies, and Uncle Jar filled with tons of goodies....mainly clothes for my little guy, but mommy and daddy got a little suprise too! No pictures today I haven't been able to clear off my camera card. So plenty to come tomorrow.
Have a great day!

Sunny Summer Days!

This weekend we went to the Newport Aquarium with the Winter family! Cannin loved it! You could tell when he spotted something his little face just lit up! We are trying to hit the fun "hot spots" around the area before we move back to Texas...that way Cannin can say he once lived there, and seen all the attractions!We also had some great German food that was right around the corner from the river! It was fantastic. The guys had a better time than the rest of us there I think because of the dark beer! :)
Here are a few pictures I have been playing around with on a new photo editor I got! I just love them! His big blue eyes just melt my heart! And his little toes...what can I say I LOVE baby feet!

Hopefully after He wakes from his nap we can go swimming! I'm in desperate need of some sun! Have a great day!

lazy days!



Today was a whole lot of nothing for Cannin and I...except our trip to the grocery store! That is one thing I could have went without doing, but it had to be done and I guess it was good to get out of the house! Other than this I finished up cleaning, and we just relaxed trying to recoop from all the fun we had this weekend! Cannin has decided he wanted to sit up so here he is! It is so cute because he gets so tickeled then falls over. My guess is he is so proud of himself and this smile says so....As mimi would say he's smilin all over himself!

I had to post one more from this weekend! I just loved the outfit Grammie sent to Cannin....Here he is modeling it off and saying look at me stand up! :)Have a blessed day!

Yankee Doodle!!

Let me start by saying we had a fabulous 4th of July weekend! We started out Friday night at the vandalia rec center where we listened to live bands and watched fireworks! They were awesome. Here are a few pictures at the rec center! Here are Cannin and I talkin' about how loud it was gonna be, but if he got to scared momma would take him to the car! But we didn't have to worry about that because he slept through the show!Friday night we stayed at our friends house since it was so late when we got in and all the kids were out like little lights! It started raining Saturday so it was kindof a bummer, but it cleared up and we were able to set off a few fireworks for the kids! They loved the sparklers and the pop its! We would catch them throwing those things at each other's feet! Here is the rest of the clan! Makenna, Owen, Ashton, and Tessa


Here are Dustin, Cannin, and I with his first sparkler! He was so interested in them....He watched everywhere it went, and he never took his eyes of the kiddos when they had theirs!


Here are us ladies with our little boys! I just love these two girls! If I ever needed anything I know they are right there beside me! It is going to be a sad day when we have to leave because for the 3 years they have been a part of my family. They know exactly what to do when I am homesick and when I could use a hug because my mom isn't right up the road :( It's hard not having your family during the holidays, but these girls go out of their way to make you feel like you are right at home! My family and I appreciate everything you guys have done for us! Mom tells me all the time she is so glad I have met people like you to help me through the hard times and to put a little ease on her heart knowing we are taking care of!
Have a blessed day!
