State Fair of Texas

Mom, Dad, me, and the boys went to the State Fair of Texas on the last Saturday. Boy was it crowded!!!! We had so much fun. It was hot and very EXPENSIVE, but it only comes once a year so we HAVE to do it. I have to admit that I didn't try anything fried this year. By the time we got a corn on the cob, lemonade, pork chop, cotton candy, and ice cream (I had 2 bottles of water in Ian's bag, thank goodness) that was plenty. Dad and I took Connor on the ferris wheel, I rode the log ride and roller coaster with him, and mom hung out in the shade with Ian. The petting zoo was crowded and all the animals were full. Connor didn't seem to care though, he just soaks it all in.

We are at an great stage right now, I know Connor still needs a nap, but he is very good if he dosen't get one. Which makes outings easy...and days we stay home he just knows he has to lay down. I think I'll make him nap until he goes to kindergarten! :0)

Ian has become my little buddy. He has decided that bottles are NOT his thing!!! He refuses to take one, believe me I have tried at least 3 different types...ugh! Some may say I missed my window of oppurtunity while others say some babies just won't take one. Needless to say he is my side kick. Tommorrow he will be 3 months old and his neck is getting stronger, he hates to lay on his stomach, but loves to cuddle. He only takes a paci when he is very sleepy and will smile for anyone who will talk to him.

These two sweet boys make my WORLD go round! I love you Connor-Boy and Ian-bo-be-an...

MIckey's Rockin' Road Show

A few weekends ago Mom and I took Connor and Ian to Disney Live. Connor had a great time and Ian slept for most of the show. We didn't think our good friends Elly and Katy were going to be able to make it but it turns out they did end up going and our seats were right next to each other!!!!
Katy and Elly at the show!
Check out the new Woody hat Nana bought for him. He loves this hat. We play Toy Story ALL the time and he has found a lasso and can even do tricks like Woody :0)

Ian and Nana enjoying the show!

Buzzzzz Lightyear, Space Ranger!

Little aliens...We have taken Connor now to three shows, he LOVES going!

Happy Monday!

Pumpkin Patch

A few weeks ago dad, Eric, and James went to the Cotton Bowl to watch Tech. When they got home that evening we took a quick trip to the Pumpkin Patch. We had a great time. Mom will say she doesn't like this picture, but any picture with her and my dad loving on my boys I LOVE :0)

Connor took this picture. I love my dad sooooo much!

For those of you who don't know this Connor is living for Toy Story right now. He wanted Ian to sit and have his picture made with him.

Nobody said getting a family of 4 together for a picture was easy.

Connor, Papa, and Ian-bo-be-an riding the train.
I have downloaded pictures to the computer...now I just have to find time to post them. Have a great evening!

Blastball, 2 months, and a trip to the zoo

Where in the world did the month of Sept. go? Here it is almost Halloween, Thanksgiving (by the way my favorite holiday) will be right around the corner, and before we know it Christmas is here! Wow!!! Our month has been busy.

Connor started blastball (tee ball but the kids only run to first base and no one gets out:)) At our first game it was a bit warm outside and Connor was ready to go home after his first at bat. We talked about not being a quitter and finishing what he started. With a quick small bag of fruit snacks and a sip of Gatorade he was back and ready to play.
Connor has the blue glove on and he is standing in the dugout. Waiting on the other team to hit the ball. He wears his hat like my brother and my grandfather. A little cocked to the side. James also said this is the way him and his grandfather wore their hats:)

Ian is growing like a little weed. Still not at the same speed big brother Connor did, but gaining weight and SMILING all the time. We finally have his reflux under control (we think). He is going to continue breathing treatments twice a day until his 4 month check up. Dr. wants to make sure he doesn't aspirate into his lungs. He is sleeping from about 9:30 pm to 6 am. I can't complain. He is such a blessing and big brother is warming up and beginning to be a big help to me. He weighs 11 pounds and 7 ounces and is 22 inches long. He coo's and 'talks' all the time. He loves to be in the bath tub and kick and play. He will not take a bottle, doesn't like the pacifier, but LOVES to suck on his hands:)
Ian is stretching. I have a running rule. If it is after say 3:30 pm and we have some kind of accident and it ruins our clothes...I usually don't put anything back on him until bed time. He loves to lay around in his diaper with his blankets.

Here is the big 2 month old!
Yesterday was our first official trip to the zoo. The boys were great. Ian slept in his stroller, watched the birds fly by, and was a happy little camper. The zoo was not crowded at all so the kiddos got to run and play and we didn't have to worry as much about them than if it were crowded.
