6 Months

Somebody turned 6 months old yesterday!  He is now rolling over (both ways), eating between 6 and 8 ounces every 4 hours and eating baby food a couple times a day as well.  He has been going down at night by 7:30/8:00 and waking up at about 6:45.  He sleeps through the night most of the time, but we do have a few nights a week that he wakes up off and on, but I just give him his passy and he goes back to sleep.  I can't complain...he is the sweetest, happiest baby and I am so thankful!  I am sure it won't last forever, so we will enjoy it while it lasts!  The only mischief he gets in right now is  trying to get something that he's not supposed to have, like the remote or phone.  He will grunt and grab until he gets what he wants!

Tucker is definitely Talon's favorite person.  Talon watches Tucker's every move and thinks every thing he says is funny.

Mother's Day at the Zoo

Somehow I forgot to post about our day at the zoo back in May.  Mother's Day after church, we went to the Montgomery Zoo and had such a great time!  The weather was nice and there wasn't a whole lot of people there.  Of course I forgot my good camera, so I had to take pictures with my phone.

The rhino refused to get out of the water while we were there.  Probably shouldn't go to the zoo at the hottest part of the day.

Great elephant exhibit!

Talon loved it! Ha...he didn't know what was going on, but he didn't mind riding in the stroller all day!

Tucker thought he could catch the little peacock perched up on the fence.  He ran away, though.

After feeding the giraffes with Daddy...I was feeding Talon and didn't get a picture of that!

Waiting for ice cream!

Tucker loved the tigers!  They were beautiful.

I think that is a bear.

I love the leopards!  Amazingly beautiful animals!  

We had to take a picture in front of the giraffes, they're my favorite.  I can't think of a better way to spend Mother's Day than outside enjoying the day with all three of my boys!

NYC...through my iPhone

I don't have all the pictures from my latest trip to New York, but I had to at least post these from my phone. It was my favorite trip to date. I'm always so amazed how God works things like that out. It is not easy for a mother of two to go on a trip like this, but thanks to my mom and Dane, husband, and sweet Caroline (babysitter), it was possible! Not to mention my sweet dad that financed the whole thing.  I absolutely love to travel with him for a number of reasons, one of which being that he is a pro in the airport (and let me just say, that was pretty important this trip) not to mention that we just have a lot of fun together, which I think is really special. Having a few days with him and my sister with no distractions (i.e. children) was nice, too. Alye and Olin put a lot of effort in to making sure that every thing was perfect, and they succeeded!  I am so proud of my sister and the person that she has become.  To this day every time I see New York City I can't believe that she lives there.  She is a person that I really admire and respect... living that far away from home in such a huge city is something I could never do.  It's a big accomplishment for anyone, but especially for a little girl that used to cry every time her daddy's truck was out of her sight.

It all started with a special chauffeur from the airport...
Olin surprised us at the airport in their new car!
Then Saturday we all went to our first Yankees game!  So much fun!

Next was my first visit to Alye and Olin's apartment in Brooklyn...

Sunday we shopped in Soho...
Sunday dinner at I did not try the bone marrow...

Such a wonderful time!  Thank you all so much!
