Photo Dump

Here's a hodgepodge of pictures from my phone that haven't found a home on the blog yet! Warning-they're very random!

Because, who doesn't take a nap in their shirt and shoes?

Just hanging out in my new ride!

Roll Tide Roll!!

Almost able to get around by himself

He's 12 already. Or 14. I can't decide, but I do know that he's growing too fast! :(

Fisher is Five Months Old!

*Fisher weighs around 17 pounds.

*He wears cloth diapers and 0-3 month and 3-6 month outfits.

*He can roll over!! But only when he feels like it :) We're still working on rolling from back to front-he likes to get up on his side and stay there.

*He's sleeping in his bed every night

*Breastfeeding every 2.5-3.5 hours (when he takes a bottle, it's usually 5-7 ounces). Since he's been teething, he hasn't been sleeping through the night. He's been waking up 2-4 times a night.

*LOVES to be outside! He can be screaming his head off, and will instantly be quiet when you step outside

*He is smiling, laughing, and cooing all of the time! He's a talker! :)

*He loves to be in his jumperoo or his Johnny Jump up.

*Loves to sleep on your chest or in your arms

*He loves to suck his thumb and his hand. He's now into chewing his thumb and hand.

*Loves bath time and loves to kick and splash

:He has a tooth!! His right bottom tooth is barely through the surface. He has been drooling like crazy since he started teething.

*Nicknames: Peanut, Budders, Fish, Fisher-man, Fishy, Tooters

Happy 5 months Fisher!!!

Fisher is officially teething! These last few weeks have been difficult for everyone. He is by no means unbearable, but when you're used to having such a good baby, changes are hard! He's been drooling like it's going out of style, more cranky, gnawing on everything, and waking up during the night. Several times a night. My least favorite part. :(

My poor baby! We've been doing Tylenol, teething tablets, and teething toys.

Some relief may be in sight, though! His bottom right tooth popped through the skin today! On his 5 month birthday, no less. It's barely through, but it's there! I'm praying for some relief before this starts all over!! No matter his mood, he's still my sweet boy!!

Cold Front

The weather's getting colder! Fishy is ready to go in his hat and mittens. He didn't know what to think when we put him in his outfit. He was frozen in place! Love those cheeks...

Just Another Manic Monday

Doesn't everyone do this on Mondays??

Sit on the couch in their diaper...

Look gangster in their jumperoo...

Go for a ride on the dog, who is convinced there is nothing worse than having a child sit on her!

That'd just another Monday in the Nelson household! :)

Asher's Newborn Pictures

I realized I forgot to blog about Asher's newborn pictures! Julie from 1:17 Photography (she did Fisher's newborn pictures) also took Asher's photos, and she did not disappoint! We can't wait to see all of the pictures, but for now a sneak peak will have to do! You can see all of the pictures here.

my favorite :)

Week In, Week Out

Our week was as busy as usual. Fisher was his normal cute self! This week he figured out that he likes whiffle balls because he can fit his fingers in the holes.

He also took some good naps. I can never resist his sweet face :)

I had a great cup of hot apple cider. Yum!!

I was also into baking this week. I made lemon cookies and pumpkin bread for our work potluck. I just love feeling like a good homemaker :)

Fisher also did so good accompanying me to the doctor to get my allergy shot.

And he and Asher had some good cousin bonding time.

All in all, it was another busy but good week!!

We had a great first Halloween with our little puppy dog!! Fisher got all dressed up and we went to Memaw and Pepaw's house to meet up with Hunter, Noah, Elizabeth, and Asher to show off all of their cuteness. :)
the cutest puppy dog and little lamb that you ever saw!! Fisher now outweighs E by 7 ounces!!

the best picture I got of Noah all night. This puppy was busy busy busy!!

his little tail :)

Holly and Elizabeth, Jamie and Asher, and me and Fisher (please excuse my worked all night no makeup look)

E, Hunter the fireman, Asher, and Fisher

being so cute just wore them out!

this picture makes me laugh so hard every time I look at it!!

blowing bubbles
After our photo shoot and dinner with the family, we headed back home to pass out some candy and then go to bed. I'd say it was a great Halloween! Now if all this candy would just disappear...
