One Year Pictures!

Our friend Mendi took Hunter's one year pictures. The location in Frisco was great and she got so many great shots of our sweet boy! I'm going to try to be selective in the ones I post so you're not overloaded with pictures! It's going to be so hard to choose which ones to get printed!!!






Hunter brings so much joy into our lives...as you can see from these few pictures! He has such a great smile that is so contagious! We fall in love with him more and more every day!!!

Much Awaited Birthday Post!

On Hunter's actual birthday Jeff had to work, so Hunter and I met Rita, Bryce and Laney for lunch and a playdate at the mall playground. This was a first for Hunter and he seemed to enjoy it!
So BIG!!!
Trying to catch all three together!
He even met another boy there that he had fun playing with!
Mama and her sweet boy!
That night Jeff had an FCA event that Hunter and I didn't get to go to last year because we were still in the hospital. We had to make an appearance this year!

Jeff took off work the next morning and we had pancakes for breakfast...Hunter loved them! After nap we headed to a small pumpkin patch to pick out a pumpkin and have a fun outing to celebrate with Daddy! Here are a few pics!




Then we had Hunter's birthday party at our house! We just had family over and it was a blast celebrating our little man turning ONE!!!

The sign and balloons...it was rainy and the balloons wouldn't stay up...oh well!
Cousins playing together!
Here are some pictures of opening presents. He wanted to jump right in and start playing.




Cupcakes for us! I found the idea online and think they turned out so cute!
The smash cake before! This was my first attempt at decorating and I think it turned out pretty good!
Here is Hunter enjoying his cake once Jeff showed him that he could eat it!

And the cake after...I think Hunter liked it...a lot!!!
Jeff and me with the sweetest ONE year old we know!!!
We have been so blessed by Hunter joining our family! We look forward to celebrating many more birthdays together! We just love him so much and thank the Lord daily for allowing us the joy of being his parents!

11 months old!!!

Hunter plays with his ear all the time. We were concerned about him having and ear infection, but he doesn't...he just plays with his ears! So cute!!!
This scrunched up nose face is something he has started doing more and more! He does it at everything and is a happy face! We just love it!
So done with having his picture taken today and wanting to get down! Such a sweet boy!!!
We cannot believe that Hunter will be turning one so soon! Just unbelievable how fast time really does go. The last eleven months have been so wonderful and we are looking forward to celebrating his birthday soon!

10 Months Old!!!

It is amazing to me that Hunter is 10 months old...I am trying to hold on to every moment, but it still seems to be slipping away so quickly. We love him more and more every day and pray he continues to grow and be healthy!

Oh...my Bible on the table...I think I might go for it!
I'm ready to get down now, thank you!
Are we still trying to take a picture?
Here's a sweet boy being still for a moment!
Trying to get one more shot...but he's too fast for me!

Something to consider...

While "blog-hopping" today as Hunter was going down for a nap I came across and wonderful article that challenged me! What is my perspective in parenting my sweet boy...if you are interested in the article you can read it here. I would look at it if I were you, but that's just me! :)

Going to the lake...

On Sunday morning, since we go to church on Saturday evenings, we decided to head to Lake Lavon with Hunter and have a picnic breakfast! I baked cinnamon rolls for Jeff and myself, made Hunter's cereal and banana, gathered the rest of our supplies and were out the door. Even at 8:30 in the morning it was warm, but we enjoyed the outing so much. Hunter LOVES being outside so we weren't surprised that he had fun. After breakfast and hanging out a bit we packed back up and were on the road headed home to lay Hunter in bed for his morning nap. It was awesome and I think we may be doing this more often!

Hunter and Daddy in the back of the car hanging out before we eat!
Hunter eating his breakfast in his stroller...close enough to a highchair!
Daddy showing Hunter the lake...he loved when the boats went by.
It's hard to tell because I couldn't get super close without distracting Hunter, but Jeff bent down to let Hunter's feet dangle in the grass...Hunter was extremely curious about the grass! It was a super cute moment that I didn't want to miss!
(NOTE: I posted within 3 days of us going...it's a good start for not getting behind!!!)

And with that...

we are officially caught up!!! I am once again pledging to keep up better with our pictures and the events that are happening in our life! I SO hope to follow through because updating so much at once is not easy! :) Blessings to all of you!

Another favorite thing...CHEERIOS!!!

Hunter loves Cheerios! I am probably the over cautious mom that only gives him one at a time and makes sure he swallows before giving him another one...BUT just for fun I put a bunch on his tray to see what he would do. This was the look I got...

I took some away and this is what happened...much better!
Full tummy...Happy boy!!!

The Dishwasher...one of Hunter's new favorite things!

I was doing dishes the other day and Hunter was playing with the tupperware when he crawled right over my feet to get to the dishwasher. When I got back about 2 seconds later with the camera he had already gotten a fork out of the basket!
Look Mom...I'm standing!
I love the belly and the chubby legs!
Banging the fork and having so much fun!
LOVE THIS FACE!!!!
Now every time I open the dishwasher Hunter wants to stand up on the door! We are having so much fun with him each and every day!!!
