Here it is!

YEA! While we were playing this morning, Lane was being super cooperative and allowed me to snap a picture of his tooth! It is not completly out yet but on its way! If you click on the picture, it will be bigger & you can see it better!

6 Months

Today Lane is 6 months old!! WOW! He is definitely changing almost every day. This evening went by quick and I didn't get a chance to snap a pic of him. But here are some things going on with Lane now...
*He is cutting a tooth.
*He is in the beginning phase of crawling.
He will get on all fours and rock back and's pretty funny! He actually ends up pushing himself backwards!
*He loves to laugh....but it seems that only Paul can get him really going!
*He is eating one fruit & one veggie for dinner.
*He weighs about 17 lbs.
I can't believe that I have a six month old. Now, onward to the next six!

Hello again!

We're still here, I promise! Just keeping busy. We spent this past weekend in Waco visiting family and friends. It was nice to get away for a bit. Not a whole lot new going on. We are very close to having our first tooth! A tiny piece has broken through his gum. I would like to get a pic of it, but I'm pretty certain thats not going to happen anytime soon! Any time anything goes in his mouth he shuts it!

Fall is finally here! I love this season! I can't wait for the cool days to come. I have been buying Lane man some cute long sleeve clothes! I am now in the process of deciding what I want Lane to be for Halloween...early I know!! But hey, it's never to early to start thinking!

Here is my sweet boy with his sweet smile!! We have all been a little extra happy.....both the Longhorns and the Cowboys are 3-0!!!!!! Let's keep it up boys!!

Lazy Saturday

Today was a very nice, calm, relaxing day! Well somewhat relaxing. I loved the rain and cool air outside, however, inside we were dealing with a cranky baby! For the majority of this past week, we have been battling what we think is a little bug that Lane caught which caused lots of poo poo diapers (sorry but there really isn't a "prettier" way of saying that) which lead to a very bad diaper rash, which will NOT go away...much to our frustration. There is nothing worse than a bad case of diaper rash. On top of that, I'm pretty sure Lane is teething, which is causing his fussiness. There is no fever to report, just a cranky baby with a sore bottom!
I am hoping that whatever he has going on in his tummy will settle down quickly.
In other news, our house has been serving as an evacuation shelter!! My sister-in-law and her family, who live in Houston, came in town Wednesday night and has been with us. Good news is their brand new house survived IKE. We got to spend alot of time with them and Lane loved having Coen around!
They left about mid-morning, and shortly after is when the weather began to change. So, we spent the day inside. I made a big pallet on the floor, where little man played all day (have I mentioned that he is sitting up now by himself!!), daddy watched football, and I graded papers!
Bath time fun before bed!
Now that Lane is sitting up, he can sit in the tub and not in the "baby bath". We also pulled out the bath toys...which Lane loves!!! Every bath now has to have toys!

Family Fun...a week later!

Time is definitely hard to come by during the week with a baby!! This is why this post is a bit overdue!! I promise I'll try harder to post more frequently!

Last weekend Paul's mom, sister, and our nephew came to town! We had alot of fun. Coen is a year today!!! I can't believe how much he has grown. He is so big and is walking everywhere! We really got a taste of what is in store for us once our little man starts walking! It was so cute to see the two of them together. Coen was so good around Lane. He would just walk over to him and look at him and try to give him kisses! They will definitely have fun times together as they both grow older.

Even though the weekend went by fast it was good to spend some time with them! Living far away never makes things easy and it makes you cherish the time you do spend together!
We are going down to Victoria this weekend for Coen's first birthday party!! I know it'll be a good time. Here are some pics from last weekend.Lane and Coen
