13 Months and Good 'Ole Bluebonnets!

This weekend we headed down to Nacogdoches. Paul's brother Andy is in Texas for a few days visting family before heading to Afghanistan for about 6-7 months. It was great to see him, even if for a short time, before he heads off to the war. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers while he is over there.

I have been wanting to take Lane's pictures in bluebonnets for awhile now, but have not seen in good spots around Keller to take them. So, on the way home yesterday, the side of the highway was just covered with them, so we stopped, on the side of a major interstate ( very safe I know) to take pictures! Lane liked sitting in them! Last year he was a teeny tiny little thing so we opted for no bluebonnet pics, so these are his first ones!!

In other news, Lane was 13 months yesterday!! Another month gone by! So Lane, here are some things you are doing at 13 months:

  • Down to 2 bottles a day.
  • Sleeping through the night!!
  • Not the best nap taker at home.
  • Loves to play outside.
  • Is a very picky eater....I have no idea where he could have got that from (LOL!!)
  • Some of your fav foods include chicken, rice, beans, any kind of bread, jelly, crackers, cheese, your breakfast bars, eggs on occassion, and you love milk, and apple juice.
  • Is officially in the "walker room" at day care, which looks like an actual preschool classroom.
  • Understands phrases such as "lets go outside", "I'm gonna get you", and "lets take a bath".
  • You are definitely finding your voice now however still working on words!

Oh, you are growing up so fast! Mommy and daddy love you very much!

A Funny Surprise

This afternoon when I got to Lane's daycare, I saw a funny little surprise..... he had a mohawk!!
His teacher is too funny and said Lane's hair is the only one that will do this, and he doesn't seem to mind it! I thought it was too cute not to share!

He spotted a dog in the pic below and was intently listening to it bark!

And this one is of my two favorite boys before Lane going off to sleep!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter! I hope everyone had a great holiday! This Easter weekend went by fast, as usual. Overlooking the weather, today was a good day. Lane got his first taste of Easter. We started off the morning at home, getting ready then seeing what the Easter Bunny brought Lane! Then we did a quick egg hunt in our living room before we headed to Arlington and met up with the family for church. Lane got a small taste of egg hunting Friday when his day care class had an Easter "party"!

Here is what Lane got from the Easter BunnyGetting good pictures of little man is getting harderd every day! he is very active and does not want to sit I take what I can get!!!

This is my bunny...
I want to carry itOh, it's heavy!
I found one!
He was so cute carrying his basket around everywhere
After church we all went to my aunt Terry's to spend the day. It was great being with the family.
Here is my nana with all but two of her grandkids (Britt and Rach) and her only great grand-son!

Amanda and Jared with bunny cookies
Lane with his cookie....he had a couple bites
Jared, me and Lane.....our attempt at dying eggs with little man...didn't go so good, he just wanted to grab the dye and throw the egg!
Here is Lane playing on the trampoline....there were about seven of us all around it and Lane was very tired at this point but just going on pure energy! He was hilarous on this, he was running around to everyone laughing and being silly!

I love this one!

Aunt Terry made Lane his special bunny cake for his first Easter! So cute!

And no Easter would be complete without an egg hunt! Thank goodness by late afternoon the sun came out, so it was perfect for going outside!
Off I go.

He kept wondering off, so daddy helped him out a bit!

All in all it was a good day. Lane played ALL day and had NO nap! So he was out by 7:00 this evening! We missed my mom and sisters but we thought about them and can't wait to see them soon!
Oh, we were supposed to have tomorrow off, but no I'll be in school making up for a snow day....BOO:(

Cutie Pie

This past weekend was pretty busy. We had Titus' birthday Saturday, then Paul went to the Nascar race on Sunday, so I spent the day Easter shopping in Arlington with the family! It's so fun actually getting to shop for Easter basket stuff! Anyway, here are some pics of Lane at Titus' party. First....Lane got some Crocs for his birthday and they are the cutest little things! This was his first time wearing them and he walked pretty well in them! Thanks cousin Amanda!!

Decorated in sports of course!My cute little boy...I love this outfit!

I wanna walk everywhere!

So strong! Just taking a break
The best one I could snag of them!

Here ya go Titus

Another break!

and I leave you with this picture. When I got home today I put Lane in his room to play and I went into the kitchen to put in a load of laundry...and in no more than two mintues, I walked back to check on Lane and found this...

Oh Lane!!!

Opening presents, well Paul and I are! We lost Lane after he opened his lawn mower!

Cake time...there were so many people taking pics of Lane!

Yum ,Yum
This is pretty good!
I need a drink
I love those eyes. He didn't go as crazy with it as I thought he would! He ate at it for a while but never just dug in and made a huge mess!
All finished
Need to play some more....
And push my lawn mower some more!

As you can see it was a busy day! I loved having my mom and sisters in town. Sadly, they all flew out Monday morning. I think Lane had a great day!
