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!

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!

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!
