Dex + Lilly = BFF (at least HE thinks so!)

Dex loves Lilly.  Lilly sometimes tolerates loves Dex. 

They're so funny to watch, because Dex will crawl after her, he'll "catch" her, she'll let him rub/pet on her for a minute, then she'll scamper about 10 feet away, and it starts all over.  I think she's being nice and playing :)  She must know that he's a baby and doesn't know any better, because if I played with her the way Dex "plays" with her, I think she would probably claw my eyes out  :)  I always watch them when he gets close to her to make sure she doesn't hurt him if he pulls her tail, and she's never once snapped at or scratched him.  If she gets too much, she just runs away!  Smart kitty. 

Nuzzling his head on her soft fur.  He does this with anything soft, so why should a cat be any different?

First Steps!! Woohoo!!

It's been a long time coming, but Dex took his first steps tonight! Hilarious video below. ENJOY! We sure did! :)

(by the way, don't you love his cool dude look - no shirt and baggy sweats (plus the diaper sticking out the top? Haha!)

Black Eye

Day after...

3 days after...

Notice I picked the pictures where he has the saddest fast :(  He's not really still that sad about it.

I don't really want to explain the big golf caddy thingie in our kitchen (or why it's till there after 2 months), but Dex loves it.  And he think's it's his personal jungle gym. 

I swear he's getting bigger every single day, but he still looks really tiny in this first picture!!

I don't really have many new pics over the last few days.  He's been running a fever (possibly teething??) and has just been cranky.  Hopefully the medicine and hugs will make him feel better and we won't have to go the doctor...

Professional Pics

We had some professional pics done with all three O'Neal grandbabies (Brooks, Gentry, & Dex) a couple months ago and got the disk today.  So exciting!  I just LOVE seeing new pictures, I don't care whether I take them or someone else.  I'm obsessed with that first view of seeing what you've captured!  Such an "ahhhhh" feeling :)

Here are a few shots!

So many more good ones... thanks again to Brandi at b4photography!

I Have No Idea Why...

ALL afternoon with the poly-vi-sol in his mouth...

Rat In Our Fridge..., not really.  It's just Dex  :)

Tiny Spaces

Dex loves to crawl into tiny spaces.  He always pitches a fit when he can't get out, but he still goes in, nonetheless.  I moved my computer and photo stuff into the office (wow, why haven't I thought of this concept before??) which is usually closed off, so he had fun exploring.

I looked over to find him here.

Trying to get out... notice the determined look on his face.

A Few More Pics From The Tracks

This boy was on the move that day (not unlike any other day, actually)!  It was impossible to get him to sit still for a picture, so I finally gave up and just took them of him crawling away from wherever I'd put him.  My gosh, when did he get so FAST?

Hmmm... I wonder what kind of trouble is up here?!

Talk about excitement!

Tia came to hang today... and she's apparently been working on a new trick with Dex behind my back, and he definitely impressed this afternoon :)

Please ignore mine and my sister's country accents in this video! haha! Is it really THAT bad?! Good grief!

These pics are from Easter, but I wanted to post a few pics of Dex's cousins.  I learned my lesson on trying to take all three of their pictures together.  Wow...  I probably took 100 pictures and got NOTHING.   Ha!

Shannon so loving calls this one "Grumpy, Baldy, and Curly".

Beautiful Gentry...

Not much compares to a sweet moment between a girl and her daddy...

Little Brooks-y.  So mad this day, but still cute as ever!

Happy Mother's Day!

I was so happy to be able to spend Mother's Day weekend this year with my mother.  As we've done ever since I can remember, we all wore a rose to church.  Red if your mother is still living, and white if your mother has passed away.  Dex got a little red rose for his first time this year :)  I was so impressed with him, he left it on for a surprisingly long time! 

Here is my mother with her three babies :)  Mom - I can't tell you enough how wonderful you are, and how much I love you.  I can't imagine my life without you and your support has meant everything to me.  I LOVE watching you with Dex, and how much he wants to be with you just makes my heart melt.  You are the sweetest woman in the world!  Happy Mother's Day!!

I never really, truly understood the importance of Mother's Day until I became a mother myself.  It has taken on a whole new meaning, and I think every mother out there deserves to be honored and loved every day, but especially on this one special day.  I hope every Mom felt the love!!  :)

Just a few new pictures of Dex today.  Somebody once told me that he was the most photographed and documented baby ever, and I thought she was crazy.  Now that I'm trying to take a photo a day for my 365 Photo Journal (and Dex being my go-to photo), I'm beginning to wonder if she isn't right... hehe!

His "I'm so glad I'm here right now!" face...

Thinking about taking a step down...
