Levi Austin: 5 Months

Here we are..5 months!!
A very quick month has passed once again!
Here is what is going on with Levi at 5 months..

*The most recent thing is that you have started baby food! To date you have tried carrots, squash, and sweet potatoes. You seem to like them all, because you always finish them!! Soon we will try the green veggies, and then eventually some fruit!

*You are taking about five bottles a day, but have trouble finishing them all.

*You are sleeping in your room every night, ALL night!!!! Mommy and daddy are very appreciative of this! You are such a good little sleeper!
*I think I can now safely say that you have moved beyond your screaming fits in the car! Now, going places isn't so bad!!
*You are one of two in your little class at school! A mommy's dream! But also making you one spoiled boy...but that's okay!!
*You are in size 2 diapers and 6-9 month clothes...yes, you are a big boy!!
Your growing like a weed little man!! We love you!!

Hello Baby Food

Today while I was making dinner...Paul was playing with the boys....he put Levi down under his play mat. A little bit later we noticed Levi  and he looked like this....

He had totally scooted off his mat!!!
I'm not sure how but he did! He was right in the middle on his back and wound up off it!! Little stinker!!

Love this smile!!

Tonight was a big night for little mister. We began baby food!!! We choose carrots to start with! He did pretty good with them. He ate about half the jar.
.Here he is waiting....smiling at daddy.

He was ready!

His first taste


Paul was manning the camera and the Flip...he caught this one and I thought it was hilarious!

We will continue carrots for the next couple of days and then move onto another veggie!! I think he will be a pretty good eater!

Bedtime Laughs

I meant to post these last night, but never got around to it. While getting Levi ready for bed, Lane thought it would be funny to get in Levi's crib, so I put him in it. Then we put Levi in with him! Then daddy came over and got the boys rolling!! It was so cute and I think that was the most time Lane has spent in that crib, ha!!

Levi kept looking over at Lane

Holding sweet.

Our Weekend

Sadly our weekend has come to an went by too fast! We had a pretty low key weekend. Friday we enioyed a very pleasant evening in Southlake...dinner at our fav, Mi Cocina, then letting Lane run wild in the courtyard area. Saturday started off with Lane's second soccer game, then relaxing at home doing whatever, then it ended with a Scentsy party where I got some yummy fall scents! Today we spent most of the afternoon in Arlington at a friends birthday party. Busy but fun. For some reason I took a ton of pics this weekend of the boys, so I figured I'd put them all in one post!!
At Levi's 4 month appointment we got the go ahead to begin rice cereal with him, so we started this past week! His very first try he didn't really seem to understand what he was supposed to be doing! He just kinda sat there looking at me funny! But as the week went on he got much better and tonight while Paul was feeding him, he was grabbing for the spoon!

We spent time on the floor playing with this little dog!

Levi LOVES his baths!! Here he was this morning...all smiles!!

For our second game, we played the Monkeys!! This week was a huge turn-a-round! All the boys did great and actually looked like they knew what they were doing! They all followed the ball and tried to take it away! Lane did awesome!! He completly surprised me...he was running all around, being aggressive and scoring!!! He scored two goals...two goals in the other team's net (ha!)...and had two almost go in!! They improved so much just from game 1!!
This was one of his scoring runs!! Dribbling down the field...

...And his kick in!!

Here he is again...the one right in front of the goal!!

Here's the whole team after the game! So sweet!

Levi had another "first" this weekend!! All this child wants to do is sit-up! So we knew it was time to get him a bumbo chair! So we picked one up at Target this morning...and he loves it! He is so stinking cute in it...and his chubby little legs barely fit in it! I cannot believe my baby is already big enough to do this!

Lane loves to play. For the longest time my coffee table was a mini racetrack! He would put all his cars around the table and play with them there. But recently I had the idea to take his trains off his table, put together his racetrack on top, and there you have it, a new racetrack!! This morning Lane decided to make a train track all the way out of his room!
It's a daily occurence at our house for Lane to put on either his football attire or his baseball uniform! Today was no exception! He put it on right before the Cowboy game started...and he also brought out his field rug! It just so happened that daddy put Levi in a UT onesie, so I thought this would be a cute picture!

And I'm not sure if I ever did blog about his first roll.....but yes, little man is rolling!! He rolls to his's so cute! He has very good head control, and loves to just look around!

Watching Lane play is very good entertainment!!

Well that's it it's time for another week...On another note...Is anyone else super excited about Parenthood starting this week!?? That is my favorite show and I can't wait!! Have a good week!

Happy Me

I was greeted this afternoon with a sweet Erin Condren "life planner" came!!! I ordered mine about three weeks ago after seeing them everywhere! They were seriously adorable and after looking them up I knew I wanted one! However they were $50 bucks and at first I thought no way would I pay that for a planner! I eneded up finding a coupon and after it all I only paid $25.87..score!! And Oh My...they are SO worth it!!! It is insane!!! It.s big, heavy duty, and super colorful!! Love!

Heres mine...

I couldn't get good pics tonight...but the colors are much more vibrant!
 I love these pages for dates!

A full spread month at a goes all the way until Dec. 2012!

It has stickers for birthdays, games, and such...

and also blank stickers!

It has a "pocket divider"...I love this...perfect for coupons and whatever else!

It came with a ton of free gift tags...probably close to 25!!

A zip lock!

The back page is another monthly view...this one is laminated!

Even the box it came in was adorable!!

It seriously is the cutest thing! I can't wait to start using it...however I really thought I would be able to carry it in my purse...but after seeing it...I may have to get a bigger purse!! You should definitely check out her website! Paul has been laughing at me all can anyone be so crazy about a planner is what he's thinking...well babe...ME!!!

A Special Game Day

It's definitely that time of year...Football Season!! And we love football in this house!! And more importantly...we love TEXAS football in this house! I was born a Texas fan and I love that I was able to convert my hubby into one as well!! He was an Aggie when I met him! And now I get to raise two more sweet little Longhorn loving boys!!
So this past Saturday was pretty special because it was Lane's first time to go to a Texas game!! We knew this year was the year to start taking him and we very excited! He loves all things sports and he was so ready!
So we headed down to Austin Saturday morning.  After one minor, okay major, setback with Levi, (if you follow me on FB you know what I'm talking about, ha) we were off! We went with lots of my family in tow! My cousin is a freshman there this year, so we headed to Jester to check out her dorm first!
Zach, Papa, Paul and Kelly  (for some reason I didn't catch a pic with Bree)

After a bit of visiting, we headed towards the Co-op, but detoured through campus! This was our attempt at a family shot...not great...Lane wouldn't smile!

Daddy and Lane

Haley, Lane, and Paul...Lane really wanted to ride a bus...hence the sad face!

After everyone stocked up on UT goodies, we headed to Trudy's for some pre-game eating and drinking! Mexican Martini's were yummy!! Thanks Kelly!

Lane opted for an afternoon nap!

Then we all made our way back to my papa's truck for some more pre game festivities!! Here are all the kiddos: Haley, Zach, Jared, Lane , and Garrett

Me, Kelly & Papa, Paul (doing what they do best!)
There was more family with us, Robin, Terry, and John...but I didn't get any pics, sorry guys!

Jared, Lane and Haley sported some UT eye and face gear!! Lane was super excited at this point!


Daddy and Lane

Family shot inside...we had great seats!

These four set together

Lane was in awe of everything...his eyes were wide and he watched everything!! I love this...his little hand over his heart!

His eyes didn't leave the field...and by kick off he was singing Texas cute!!

It was an awesome time!! Lane did great. He did say a couple of times that this game was "taking forever", ha! To top it off Texas won!! This was definitely such a sweet memory! I can't wait for a couple more years when little Mr. Levi gets to go to his first game!!
