I love my life...

My sweet baby boy turned 5 months old a few days ago. It is hard for me to believe it. I love this age and I love being able to stay at home with him, watching him grow every minute. This month:
-he loves to laugh at Ozzy...he thinks his dog is sooooo funny!
-his favorite baby foods are green beans and pears
-he is fitting into 6-9 month clothes, but of course they are a little long for him since he is in the 15% for height.
-has discovered his tongue
-enjoys playing in his exersaucer
-has a pretty set schedule and sleeps really well
-rolls over
-loves it when his daddy comes home

It is so amazing to see the growth and development that babies go through at such a rapid pace. He is changing and getting more and more personality everyday. Mark comes home from work most days and swears that he looks taller. We've had a lot of fun with him this month. We were able to go to our ward Christmas party(until we had to take him home early due to over-stimulation), Bethlahem in Burnet, Zilker Park, and lots more. Anyways. Here are some pictures of our sweet baby.

Tis the Season...

I absolutely love the Christmas holidays. Everything is just so much more exciting. Our house is full of decorations and we have our beautiful tree lit up every evening. Mark put up lots of pretty white lights outside on our house. It is finally getting colder so we can bundle up, drink hot chocolate, and have a fire. (and of course being able to wear hoodies all the time to hide the extra fat from eating too much this month). We get to go do fun things like the trail of lights and the Bethlahem scene out in Burnet. And of course, we can't forget about baking all of those yummy treats. But most of all, I love to spend time with our families. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and I can't wait until everyone comes to town for Christmas. Just wanted to share some of my excitement with you. Here are some cute pics.
