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!

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 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!

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!

Fantastic Friday!

WOW....It has been forever since I have had time to post, or even read the blogs I follow. I am sorry to my few readers that there haven't been any new pictures of my growing baby boy! To start with we had a great time at Grammie and Grumpies. So much fun we didn't want to leave, but Daddy kept saying please come home! Soon we will be living there and not have to worry about when we will see them next!

He has learned so many new tricks that everyday I wake up wondering what he is going to amaze me with today! He now weighs 17lbs and is 25 1/2 in long. He is eating cereal and baby food and doing very well with it. He tries his hardest to crawl, but for now he just scoots around. Here is my little guy sitting up all by himself. He gets so excited, and I just love this picture.
Cannin calls her everyday and now tells her bye bye! She is convinced he is telling her to come and get him. Here is Cannin at the Texas Rangers game where he got his clothes signed by pitcher Derek Holland! I was so excited we were able to get this because this is something Cannin can keep! I am going to make a shadowbox with the clothes, picture, and ticket!
Cannin loves swimming and hanging out by the pool....

We are off to a 4th of July bbq with Dustin's co-workers, and then over to the Winter household where Casey and the kids are coming for the weekend! Tonight we are going to listen to live music and see fireworks at the rec center! I am so excited that now I get to share all these special holidays with a little one. Where I can teach him our family traditions and dress him up for every occasion! So be prepared for lots of pictures after this weekend! Have a safe and blessed 4th of July!
