Oh my Apple Pie!

Mmm Delicious!

Saturday we were able to drive to Willcox to go to Apple Annies!

We got to pick apples

Eat lots of great Apple flavored food!

And spend time together :)

And take home 2 delicious apple crumb pies!

We can't wait to go back in a couple weeks for the pumpkin patch and corn maze!

Michaels Blessing Day

Michael was blessed on July 17, 2011

It was a beautiful day.

We were so grateful to all our friends and family who came to support and be a part of the blessing.
(especially Ashley and James who made a slight detour on their trip to NY, Jeff, Kelly, and the girls who waited 30 hours in an airport to be able to make it And my Dad who flew in from CA!)

And thanks to my dearest hubby for manning the waffle iron and my Dad for cooking up the sausage!


My parents moved to Tennesee not too long ago and in August we got to visit them there for the first time!

Michael had his first plane ride and was absolutely amazing! Every time we got off of the plane people would tell us what a great baby we had (like we didn't know!) Then they would comment on how adorable he was, so many people tell us he should be on TV.
Maybe I'll look into that ;)

TN was a lot of fun!
Michael got to visit his Grandma and Grandpa.
It's so beautiful and green!
We got to stroll downtown, see the Grand Ole Opry and enjoy some live music with dinner at a small restaurant.

Nashville is my kind of place. I LOVE country music :)

We also got to take some family pictures!
My Mom and Dan are fabulous photographers :)

Next time, we will see the parthenon from Percy Jackson!

And a cute crying picture just for fun

My dear friend Lisa, who I went to high school with and went through my pregnancy with (while she was pregnant with her beautiful baby girl Aubrey!) has a fantastic blog!

She even actually updates hers more than once a month! ;)

(don't worry I'll update mine soon!)

YOU should follow her! She's doing a giveaway right now and I kinda (a lot) want to win! :)

4 Months

I can't believe my little man is now 4 months old!

His 4 month appt is tuesday and I'll fill in his stats!
He weighs 14 lbs 14 oz (49%)

He is 26.5 inches long (92%)

and his head is 43 cm (68%)

I have one LONG skinny kid :)

I feel like Michael at 3 months was a completely different baby than Michael at 4 months!

Michael rolls like a pro now

tries REALLY hard to sit up

loves sitting in his bumbo at the kitchen table

reaches for all kinds of toys

puts EVERYTHING in his mouth

chews on everything

LOVES to be read too

LOVES bath time, although he's not quite splashing yet, just kicking

Laughs at everything, even Mom now :)

FOUND his feet!!

Smiles when he sees anyone, everyone says he is the happiest baby they have ever seen!

Still sleeps like a rock ;)

Has even gotten comments about how he looks like his dad!

pays so much attention to everyone and everything around him

Talks all of the time, especially to toys and people he knows

can lift his head so high off of the ground

watches everyone around him eat

tried a lemon for the first time

flew on a plane for the first time (across the country!)

makes lots of bubbles

and he loves to look and smile at himself in the mirror!

We are going to start rice cereal this evening, which will begin a whole new adventure!

We love our little man, monkey, bug and are so grateful to have him :)
