Hospital Visits and Haircuts

my Dad has been in the hospital for the last few weeks, so we've been visiting a lot! This picture was taken when we had all the boys in his room celebrating my mom's birthday. Thankfully, he is home now!

a beautiful sunset that I got to see a work a few weekends ago 

The boys got haircuts last week in preparation for the beginning of school. Fisher got 4 inches cut off, which he wasn't excited about initially, but now he loves it.

we made a trip to the Collierville Town Square to explore the trains.

Cow Appreciation Day, Splash Park, and Other Happenings

Cheesin big before church a few weeks ago!

wearing his Uncle Jacob's baby outfit 
It was Chick-Fil-A appreciation day a few weeks ago. We love us some CFA, so of course we had to participate! The boys had fun and were good sports about their mamas being a little bit crazy.

My little sister's gender reveal! We're finally getting a girl in our family!!

he fell asleep like this and I was trapped for almost an hour
Fun at the splash park!

We took the boys to a movie. Sullivan has never been to one before, but he did great! Although, he was ready to go before it was over. Finding Dory was so cute!

Baker is 11 Months Old!

* Baker weighs about 18 pounds.
* He wears size 6-9 month clothes, and he wears one size cloth diapers and size 3/4 disposable diapers. 
*He's now a great napper! He will take 1-3 naps a day, and it's been so nice to (mostly) get him to nap at the same time the big boys do in the afternoon. He naps in his pack and play or in the crib. 
*We have FINALLY gotten to the point where he's a good sleeper! We moved him out of our room and into the crib, and put the big boys together. So now Baker only wakes up once a night or not at all, but we're working on the older boys actually sleeping instead of playing. 
*He's figured out how to climb up the stairs.
*He loves the dog!
* He's a great nurser and he loves it!
*He is rotten to the core. He is so spoiled by me! He fusses as soon as he sees me and generally doesn't want anyone else to do anything with him .
*He loves to clap! He really enjoys it when I do "pat a cake"
*He waves bye and has finally turned his hand to wave outward. Sometimes he likes to wave with both hands. 

*He drinks water out of his sippy cup like a champ!
 *His eyes are most definitely brown, but sometimes they look hazel. 

*He's our little ginger, which I just love! My strawberry blond baby. 
*Food:he loves all fruit, but pears are his favorite still. 
 *He is crawling everywhere! He also pulls up on everything he can and he'll also take a few steps around an object (like the table) while holding on to it.
*He has 8 teeth-4 on top and 4 on bottom. 
*He loves to play with any toys that the bigger boys bring him.
*He says "mama", "dada", and "byebye" ("dyedye"), and "na-na", which I think is like "no no"
*He is ticklish! He laughs so hard when I tickle him! I love seeing the dimple on his cheek pop out when he is smiling big.
*He is so rotten! He loves to be held and lets you know (very loudly) that he doesn't like it when he gets put down. 
*He loves bath time! He loves to kick and splash.
* The older boys are still madly in love with him! They are always kissing on him and petting him. They want to sit right beside him all the time, and pick him up, which gives me a heart attack. it's so very sweet. 
* Nicknames: Baker Baby, Bubby, Baby, Baker Boo Bear
