A SUPER Dinner

I got wind this weekend of "Super Hero" Night at our Chick-Fil-A for tonight! When I told Lane that he was going to get to wear a costume to CFA he screamed out in excitement...I kid you not!! He has always wanted to wear a costume out in public!! This morning he said he was going to wear Iron Man, but when it was time to change and go....Batman won out!!

We've never been to  a CFA family night before and walking in it was pretty hilarious to say the least! I feel bad for normal people showing up to eat...there were kids running around in costume, it was loud, the cow was out walking was definitely quite the scene!!

But all the kids were having a blast and that's all that matters right!?!
And this particular kid thought this was just about the coolest thing ever!!

This one was just along for the ride, ha!

He got to meet the cow too!!

And thought he was pretty funny!

We had a fun little dinner at CFA...Superheros and CFA...a perfect combo for Lane!!

Levi Austin: 9 Months

Today Levi turned 9 months!!!  Every day this sweet one is changing...
Levi here are some things going on with you at 9 months:
.You are quickly becoming disinterested with your bottles and your baby food. His new thing is when I'm feeding him baby food he blows it back out at me...and he thinks this is hilarious!
You just recently got a new big boy seat at the table...more on that later!
You LOVE puffs!!! I think this child can eat his weigh in puffs!!

This should have been mentioned in your 8 month post, but your first word (just like your brother) was dada....these two love their daddy! He says it all the time! I'm working on making mama your second!
This past month you were moved into infants 2 at school!! That would be because you have decided that you want to be extremely mobile!! You are pulling up on everything now!

You went to the park for the first time and got to swing for the first time! You loved it!
You are such a precious little boy!! I mean look at your sweet face!! We love you to pieces Levi!!

And just because I love a little matching outfit from time to time...

Love these two!
*Update: Paul took Levi this morning to his 9 month check are his stats:
Weight: 20 lbs  15 oz
Length: 27 in.
In the 50% percentile for both...slowed a bit in growth chart but we were told he is a perfectly healthy boy!!

Brother Barricade

Overall Lane has been and is pretty good about playing with Levi. However, here recently Lane has become very territorial with his Nascars and Cars cars...he wants Levi to have nothing to do with him and hates when Levi pulls up to our coffee table to play.  He often tells me things like "Levi wants you to hold him", or "Mommy put Levi to sleep"...anything to get Levi out of the way from getting his cars!
This is something we are working on!
Anyway, this past Saturday the boys were playing on the floor and I was on the couch on the Ipad.  I really wasn't paying much attention to what they were doing, however all of the sudden Lane comes walking into the living room holding his rocking chair saying "Look mom I'm strong". I glanced up at him, again not really giving it much thought, until a minute later. I looked up to see why exactly he had brought his rocking chair in the living room...and that's when I noticed this.....

Little stinker had created a barrier to keep Levi from going to the coffee table and getting his cars!!! I just about died!! Before I said a word...I ran to grab my camera and get Paul. Then of course we had a little talk!

Levi didn't seem to notice!

Very clever of him to think of that I must say! Such a mess!

The Boy with the Dragon Tatoo

While at school today, I hopped on Facebook and found some pretty cute pictures from Lane's school. They were having fun learning about and celebrating the Chinese New Year!
Here is his class

And here is my dragon boy!! I'm pretty sure this was just a pose...because there is NO way my child would actually eat an egg roll! Ha!

I love that our daycare has FB and posts pic of our kids! It's such a nice surprise to log on and get to see pics of them! (And I couldn't resist the play on the fit too perfectly :)

Daddy's New Ride

For awhile now Paul has been wanting a new truck....the main reason was space. His backseat in the Titan was very limited once we added Levi! The middle seat in the back was almost impossible for anyone to sit in and the floor space was slim as well.
The second reason was, well, he just wanted an upgrade! And after weeks of begging me to go look, I finally agreed and we came home with this.....

A 2011 Ford 150! It is soooo nice!! And the space in the backseat is insane! Lane can hold his arm out toward me and I can hold my arm out toward him from the front seat and we cannot touch! And there is plenty of room for someone else to ride along in the back! Paul's in love!

And Lane loves it because it's his favorite color!

Paul is back to his roots with a Ford!

Big Boys

These boys are growing up way too fast!! Seriously...these two are doing new things daily!!
.Last night while grocery shopping I decided to pick up these bad boys for Mister Levi!

He loves him some puffs...and he also loves to put anything and everything in his mouth right now, so I thought it was time to give him something new to "chew" on!
And, just like I thought he would....
he LOVED them!!

Enjoying his first cookie!

Look at those teeth

So funny!! He ate it pretty quickly!! I say they were a hit!!

And Lane...well he has been learning so much this year at school...even how to write his name!! He has been doing it for about two months now...and he loves to write it!!! He can also spell it out!
During bath tonight, he got down the crayons and decided to "color" the tub! I asked him what he wrote and he told me he wrote "Vector" from Despicable Me...he loves that movie right now...anyway I died laughing when he said that! So since he was making a mess, I told him to write his name for me on the wall...and he was happy to do so!

Not bad huh!?

I am so proud of him!

Family Pictures

Back in late October we had some family pictures taken. I didn't want to post them at the time b/c we were using some for our Christmas card...and well I never did post them after, so I thought I should now! We had them done by Kendall Stoy. She is an excellent photographer! They were shot at outside at the canals of Los Colinas. They turned out so good! She got some seriously sweet ones of the boys!

Precious, right!?!? I love that they are holding hands!


Yea for having tomorrow off!!
