First Hair Cut!

Somebody was in desperate need of a little shape up, he could no longer pull of the Trussville swoop. His hair just seemed to always fall right back to his eyes. It has been a long time coming but like the good mommy I am I just couldn't do it until he turned one!
We ventured over to Kuttin' Up and saw Ms. Carlee who also happens to cut daddy and brothers hair. Since he is still so little he got to sit in mommy's lap which is pretty much his location of choice! Ms. Carlee went to work on my very cooperative little boy and after ten minutes his hair was whipped into shape and he could see again!



He is now so very handsome, not that he wasn't before but now he has a nice clean hair cut! Ms. Carlee did an awesome job, we just love her and she knows just how to get the job done especially on squirmy little kids and she makes all the men in my life look so handsome!


I am sure hoping that all haircuts go as easy as his first one went but I am not so sure we will get that lucky! I do love that his hair cut didn't really change his appearance to much after all he has always looked more like a big boy then a baby to me because of that hair.

Class Party!

Charlie's 3K Class celebrated the birth of Jesus before they started Christmas Break. They has Pizza, apples and a Birthday Cake. All the kids had a great time and it is such a great way to teach them the true meaning of Christmas.
There were a few extra special guests that got to come and celebrate too! I am not sure if they enjoyed it as much as the big kids but they were good sports while they watched them eat!

This little guy even got to enjoy some of the food too while sitting in his big brothers seat. He is growing way to fast and he is loving every minute of turning into a big boy, mommy not so much I want him to stay a baby forever! And just a side not check out those blue eyes, they are killer in person and I know he is going to break some hearts, he is such a flirt already!

Charlie even brought some gifts for his teachers even though they were celebrating Jesus. I was only able to get him with Mrs. Jill, he could not stand still long enough to take a picture with Mrs. Rhonda he is just such a busy kid! He might not have wanted to sit still though because a certain little brother of his was playing with all the big kids and he needed to rush over to him to get his play on! Happy Birthday Jesus!


Hip Hip Hooray for Coleman's 1st Birthday!

I told you guys I would be back to do a full birthday post on our youngest little boy! It was a great day spent with family and friends to celebrate the first year of Coleman's life. I am pretty sure he will not remember much of the day but for mommy it will be forever ingrained in my mind!
The theme for the party came from a stuffed animal that my mom gave Coleman shortly after he was born. It was a Hippo made like a sock monkey and was very fitting for a winter birthday party. The guest of honor was decked out in a hippo outfit smocked by his RaRa but when cake time came he was stripped down to a diaper, and loved it!



Little man loved every bit of his cake and had I left him in front of it he probably would have finished the whole thing! I would not have blamed it as it was so very good and I enjoyed it as much as he did, he takes after his mommy loving sweets. His big brother could care less about them, which still blows my mind!


There was sure some excitement at the party, we had a rocket launcher which all the kids loved and a little excitement when my dad caught him self on fire! I will definitely be sharing this story with Coleman when he gets older and I hope he laughs as much as I did when it happened!


Now that I have talked about the party lets move on to the boring details of the first year of life that are for mommy so she can always remember. At one year, my little boy is still not walking but is a very fast little crawler and is pulling up on everything and getting into everything within arms length. He will eat just about anything in sight but refuses to drink milk, which is driving me a little crazy. He absolutely loves his brother and will laugh at just about anything he does, which really is my favorite thing in the world!



He is still a little bit but you would never know that when you watch him eat! He has yet to creep his way on to the chart but he is just the size he is suppose to be at 16lbs12oz and 28 1/4" long. I mean lets face it he really doesn't have much chance at being super tall since it doesn't run in the family! Luckily this go round we aren't going to be running all the test that we had run on Charlie so that is a relief. We have just determined that our kids our small and that is just perfect for us!We love you so much little boy and are looking forward to watching you grow and change and explore as you enter your second year of life. Just promise me one thing you won't grow up to fast, mommy is just not ready!

Cookin' Kiddos!

These days the only way I can even think of getting dinner ready and on the table is if I have a little help from my two cookin' kiddos! It had started out with just Coleman, because well lets face it he can not be left alone for a minute, who knows what he will get into. Charlie decided to join in on the fun because he doesn't want to miss out on anything!
Generally they both get a spoon and for the most part Charlie ends up not wanting the one he is given and trades with Coleman. The also get one bowl to share and sometimes a little. Coleman usually just chews on his spoon as evidenced below while big brother does all the cooking! On this particular night I must have been generous because it appears that Charlie got a second spoon form me and he still doesn't look happy. You do what you have to though when you want to get dinner on the table at a reasonable time.




Coleman tends to get bored after about ten minutes and trades his spoon in for his paci and sometimes he even decides to take off and see what kind of trouble he can get in to. For the most part though this little tactic has bought me enough time to get dinner going and daddy usually gets home in time to rescue me so that I am not stepping over anyone while I finish up!

Swinging!

We are continuing to enjoy these beautiful fall days and rejoice in the fact that we can play outside without having to come in and change clothes because we are so sweaty! I know Cman doesn't look thrilled but don't let that face full you this boy loves to swing!
You can just see how genuinely excited and happy Charlie is to get outside and get some good solid swinging time. I know he is relishing in showing his baby brother just how it is done and that going super height like "Super Man" isn't scary at all!

These boys really are making my days so much better and brighter and I gladly take the time to swing them side by side even, if it means that there are dishes left in the sink after lunch. I know that I will blink and they won't be asking for me to swing them but will be asking for the car keys to go hang out with friends.


Happy Together

On days like this Coleman couldn't be much happier. The sun is shining and it is cool outside.


Oh and he is watching his big brother ride his bike which makes for some great grins and giggles. Happy Monday!

Super C the Cowboy!

I just shared with you Little Super C, now I want to share with you his bother Super C the Cowboy! I love living in a house with my two little super hero's, they make my life so interesting and they keep me on my toes daily!
Super C the Cowboy is quite attached to his boots and his helmet, no super hero should leave home without them. He should know after all since he is a professional.

On this particular day his super hero duties involved fixing his big green tractor so that he could collect "stuff" for mommy. I will have to say he sure came to my rescue and picked several weeds and cleaned up the leaves from the front yard.


Who knows what he will have to do next, I guess we will just have to wait and see what problems arise in the house or the yard. I am so glad I have a big boy super hero of my very own that not only keeps me safe from the weeds but gives me hugs, kisses and even a little flower here and there!

Little Super C is 10 Months!

It has happened again, yet another month has passed us by and I really have no clue where it went. And with another month passing it means that this little boy is that much closer to being ONE!
In his tenth month with us he finally started to crawl and has turned into a little trouble maker, which I am sure you can see from the last post. There is currently nothing safe from Coleman in our house and that includes Dixie, a magazine, toys and even Charlie!



Now that we have started to experience this fabulous fall weather, I can tell that this little guy is going to love to be outside. He has enjoyed sitting on a blanket and soaking in the wonderful weather and he has also tried to enjoy a little snack of grass as well. He does not have the same aversion as his older brother did to grass, so I have to be sure I watch him closely while hanging out.



At ten months he is still nursing 3 times a day with one bottle at dinner time, which he has started to hold on his own. I learned last night thought that I can no longer sit him on his boppy with his bottle while I cook dinner, he has to be watched like a hawk! After about five minutes of me walking away I cam into the living room only to find that he was gone and his bottle was sitting there. This little bugger took off and was playing with his toys while he should have been eating. He has also taken a liking to real food and is pretty much eating what we eat for dinner every night, it looks like baby food is a thing of the past for this little boy!



I have a feeling that before I know it, I will be sitting down and it will be time to document his eleventh month of life. I still don't understand how time can go by so fast but I guess when you have a jam packed schedule and life full of fun and love it will do that to you! Happy 10 month little boy, I guess mommy needs to hold and and enjoy every little thing because before I know it you will be a big boy!

T-R-O-U-B-L-E!

This little boy is turning into quite the handful! He has been fully mobile for about 4 weeks now and he is into everything. I tried to delay mobility as long as possible but I guess at some point he had to figure it out and figure it out he did!
I no longer can leave a room and expect that he will be in the same place and position I left him in when I come back. Heck, when I come back he may not even be in the same room let alone same spot anymore. This new found mobility means that this momma needs to be on her toes, much like the little munchkin below.



Freedom, or so he thinks has led this little blue eyed angel to take or steal any toy which he can gets his little hands on. As you can imagine this has lead to one very unhappy three year old who is getting a real lesson in sharing from his baby brother now.



As much as I dreaded this stage, two mobile children at once, I am now embracing what has transpired. I forgot how much I love watching a baby discover their world in a whole new way and I love to see the excitement on both Coleman and Charlie's face as Coleman gets better and better!



I guess now that I have actually posted this I am coming to gripes with the fact that my baby is indeed growing up and we are very quickly approaching the toddler stage. But for now I will not think about that because I can't imagine what life will be like with two walkers or dare I say runners!

Taste of Fall

What do you do when daddy has to work on a Saturday morning and their is a hint of fall in the air and you don't start sweating as soon as you walk out the door? First, you beg mommy to go to the park for some fun tiring swing riding....
... and then you have some fun sliding time with your favorite brother, and then you.....

... enjoy your first ride in a swing and love every stinkin minute of it, even if you are still a tad bit little, and then you....

...figure out you are really big enough to do the spiral stair case thing that you have been dying to try for ever, and finally you....

...take your little brother for a ride on the four wheeler that bounces up and down!
