7 months

My sweet boy!  How in the world are you already 7 months old?  
You are such a joy.  You are rolling all over the place and sitting up by yourself.  We just found 2 teeth coming in on the bottom front and that explains some drooling and you chewing on everything lately.   You still don't sleep well.  You take 3 short naps during the day and go to bed about 6:30.  You wake up EARLY....way too early but we are hoping this passes soon.  Hunter, you are the perfect addition to our family.  You smile all the time and make us laugh.  We love you so much!!!  Happy 7 months!

draft weekend

L and S loved Hunter

Luke giving H some love

I have no idea why I don't have pictures of the little girls.  
Guess they were too busy.

We got to have some fun too!

This past weekend was the 11th annual draft weekend for our husbands.  There are 16 of them.  All great friends from Baylor.   The guys go draft and have a good time together and the girls and kids get together and have some fun too.

Leslie and Ashley don't live in Dallas anymore so they came in town on Friday and the weekend began with pizza and a not at all quiet night at home!   Saturday we met the rest of the girls and kids at the Galleria to play and eat lunch.  Everyone then headed home for nap time.  Then it was off to the pool for a bit.   NEVER a dull moment!!!     The moms met up for dinner that night and we got to have some fun by ourselves too!  It's so neat that our husbands were all fraternity brothers first and now the wives are such good friends.  Love these girls!   Sunday the boys returned about noon and everyone went on their way.   It was a crazy, non-stop weekend but so much fun.  The kids played SO WELL together and it is so fun to see them becoming such great friends too.  Loved every minute!!

first day

I could seriously eat them up!

Today was the first day of MDO.   What an exciting day!  I woke up singing and Abby thought I had lost it.  Don't get me wrong...I had a GREAT summer with my kids, but it was time for some structure and mommy time!!!  Abby was a bit teary, but she did great and said she had a great day.  Hunter could have cared less and even slept an HOUR for them!  Might just have to sign him up for Thursdays!!!

Yay for another year of MDO!!

first soccer practice

Abby had her first soccer practice on Saturday morning.  I signed Abby up knowing that there was a good chance that she would hate it....and I was kind of right.

We started off great.  She was running with the team and following the coach doing everything she said. Then it was time for a water break.  She started sobbing saying she hated it and wanted to go home.  The team got back together and she refused to join them.  I sat her down and we talked about what she didn't like.  She said she was hot and tired of running.  Well, it was REALLY hot and I didn't blame her one bit, but tried to encourage her to finish practice with the team.  She did, but still says it's not her favorite.  We will try again next Saturday.  Lord help us when the games start.  Yikes!

Think we will stick to dance!  : )

simple things

What to do on a hot afternoon after the UPS man brings a new car seat?   Play in the box, of course.  Abby played in this box for a good two hours the other day.  She wanted H to play in there with her, but he wasn't as interested.  She wants to decorate it today.  Guess what our plans are for this afternoon?

time for food

Ready for some grub!

Along with turning six months old comes time for more food!  H seems to be loving some carrots!  I just hope he is a better eater than his sister!
