Plum Adorable :)

I know Sean is rolling his eyes as he reads this!  Haha!  We talked about how to title this post, jokingly, I think, but I thought I'd go for it, no matter how corny!  I hear that's part of being a parent :)    

I mean, this kid was getting after it!

Put plums on the "FOOD I LIKE" list!

Smarty Pants

I thought I'd take some pictures of Dex today (hard to believe, I know), and just grabbed my little PowerShot.  Well, as most everyone's camera does, it shines a red light before it actually flashes (red eye reduction), and whenever Dex would see the red light, he'd squish his eyes closed and smile really big like he totally anticipated what was coming!  It was so funny, I had to take several just to laugh at him!

*side note:  is my English correct?  "as most everyone's camera does..." I thought long and hard about how to property word that.  Ha!  I prefer math, people, not English!

Let's Take This Party Outside

Just gonna come right out and apologize to my family who check this blog 5, 6, 7, (20, 21,22...) times a day, for no updates the last few days!  I've been working on another picture project, and let me tell you, it's eating up almost ALL of my free time...

On Friday after work, it was so gorgeous outside, I took Dex out back to soak up the sunshine.  He stayed on the blanket for a while, but soon ventured off to check out all the little pieces of stuff on the ground that he could easily fit in his mouth.

I like to call this one "curiosity" :)

Where We've Been...

I love getting away for a few days... It's so good to spend some time when work is not on the agenda.  It can get you bogged down and stressed beyond words (maybe that's just me).  Anyway, I am so grateful to Sean for planning and booking our trip to Gruene, Texas.  We stayed at this awesome little B&B and just relaxed.  Browsed main street with the retirees (hehe), saw Roger Creager at Gruene Hall, took a hike around the lake, and ate at some really delicious restaurants! 

Dex didn't go, but he got this sweet t-shirt from his mom & dad :)

As nice as it is to be on vacation, it's also great to pick up the baby and be back home...  missed him sooo much!  Thanks Emi & Pop, for keeping the little monster.  I'm sure it was a real drag for you!  hahahahahahaha!!  yeah, right...

I'll hopefully have more pictures to post soon.  Dex is doing something new every single day (no lie), so I'm just trying to keep up with him and have time to do anything else!  Ahhh, the good life :)

Dex + Bouncy Chair = Friends Forever

I dread the day we have to take this bouncy chair away... I think we may have to have a special ceremony or something! No question, the gift that just seems to keep on giving :) Thanks Aunt J!

Dancing "Chill"

The funniest thing happened yesterday. Seriously. I don't know if it'll be as funny in the video for everyone who didn't get to witness it live, but in person, let me just tell you, it was hysterical. We were listening to some Citizen Cope, and Dex was in his bouncer...Sean was dancing for Dex with his hands in the air, and all of the sudden Dex started "dancing" too! Funniest. Thing. I've. Ever. Seen.

I'm just gonna load you up with some pics since I'm too tired to think... Sean and I went to a concert last night, got home at 2, woke up at 6 (thank you Dex) and needless to say, when I got home from work I was POOPED.  Of course, that meant Dex was up and into everything.  Just a little bit of what we did tonight...

Crawled all over the house...

Tried to get into the cat food...

Played on the stairs...

Crawled in and out of his bouncy chair...

Played on the soft pillows (and rubbed them on his face!  haha!)

Made plenty of funny faces...



Had a tickle fight with momma... (Check out those two top teeth!!)

Played Helped with the dishwasher...

Is this not okay??

O...M...G...it's been 5 DAYS!!

I know, I know... I can't believe it's been so long since I blogged last!  GAWWSH!

Well, my first reason for falling behind is that we made a trip to Milam... I love being there, it's so nice to be "home."  All the kids were home together, so it was extra special for everyone!

Here are a few pics from the weekend...

Dex and his "Aunt Tia"

Dex and Uncle Levi  (we took a walk in the woods over to a rock pit...and as you can tell, Dex was completely impressed.)

The boys at the rock pit.

Walking through the woods.

Dex and Pop (Okay...so... Dex is in a maroon/gray beanie, a light blue/white hoodie, and green/white striped pants...he is his mother's child)

This weekend, I took some pics of Pop & Emi.  So cute :) 

(Seriously, the last three days, all I've been doing in the evenings is editing/playing with pictures I've taken...I blame that for my lack of blogging as well!)

Playing with their grandbaby...

Dex and Emi practicing their "fish face"

Also this weekend, I got to take some pictures of Miss Cassie.  She was nice enough to let me practice my photography on her!  The pics turned out great, but mostly because she's so beautiful!

AND... today I had to privilege to shoot this sweet girl, Avaree Grace!  All together now... AWWWW!!

Some Recent Developments...

He's crawling and climbing on EVERYTHING...

Still loves being naked :)

And still loves the wires... (don't worry, we don't let him chew on them.  We also unplug any wires that he routinely gets to so that they're not "live.")

And he's just as cute as ever!!  :)

Happy Birthday Pop!!  Can't wait to see you tomorrow IN THE COUNTRY!!
