I'm actually doing a weekly post on Monday morning. Can you believe it?!

Sorry I never ended up doing one last week. I just couldn't seem to find the time to write one and, if I did seem to have a little time, I didn't feel like trying.

Toots turned 3 months old last Tuesday! I can't believe it's been three months already. He has changed tremendously since he was first born and really is developing his own little personality now. I did my own measuring and weighing since we don't have a doctor's appointment this month and he was 15 pounds and 26 inches! I didn't do his head circumference, but that's the 80th percentile for weight and the 95th percentile for height. I still have a big boy and I love it :)

We made another offer on a house last week but still didn't get it. They only wanted to come down about $1,500, which was still out of our price range. We are making yet another offer today at 10:00 AM. However, even if we had to pay full price for this house, it would still be coming in a little below the amount we originally wanted to spend, so that would be great. Hopefully it will work out this time. If it does, I'll post pictures of the inside of the house as it looks now.

Friday after Stroller Strides, I went to the Main Street Arts Festival in downtown Fort Worth and also had lunch with the ladies from Stroller Strides. It was really fun and the art festival was very cool so Tim and I went back with Toots the next morning. Saturday afternoon, Toots had his first birthday party to attend for our friends Jen and Alan's son, Conner. It was a Cars themed birthday party and was a lot of fun. Toots did well except after we sang "Happy Birthday" everyone said "yay!" and clapped and it scared him and he started crying really hard. I think we've figured out he doesn't like loud noises because he has reacted that way to several things over the last couple weeks and, when we were at church on Sunday, the orgain was making a trumpet noise that was loud and he kept making a pouty face. Poor baby has sensitive ears. Yesterday we went and looked at a couple more houses, including the one we're making the offer on, and watched the Masters. I'm a fan of Phil Mickelson so I was excited that he won.

Oh, another thing I did last week was join a new playgroup that has a lot of activities in the Keller area. Toots and I went to someone's house for our first playdate and really enjoyed it. It was nice to chat with some other moms and start to meet some new people. I also decided I really should have nicknamed Toots "Hunger Monster" instead because that is what I call him on a daily basis. He goes crazy when it's time to eat and attacks his bottles (yes, bottles...not the breast. Another post coming about that. But, the bottles do have breastmilk in them)ferociously. He is now eating about 7 ounces every 3 hours and last night he ate almost 14 ounces in two hours. My little fatty ;)

I guess that's about all. Hope everyone had a great weekend! Here's some pictures.

We took a walk to the mailbox the other day and it was very sunny so Toots needed to wear his cool new visor.


First nap not being swaddled. This only works if he is dead asleep when I put him in the crib. Notice his cute "Daddy's Helper" onesie :)


I'm 3 months old!


These next ones are all from a little photo shoot we did yesterday when Daddy was making him laugh




(His shirt says"i rule the kingdom" which Tim says is definitely true)

Hey! Glad you all were able to make it on Saturday. Sorry if B was frightened after the birthday song. If I recal, C was the same way. Obvioulsy he got over that, but some things still frighten him & he comes running & crying to one of us for hugs. :) BTW- how did you make your pictures "copyright" so you can't right-click them?? && How did you watermark them??

Hey Jen,
Here is a link to a website that has a code so you can't right click. If you don't like this one, you can google "no right click on blog" and it will bring up a bunch of different sites with codes.

To watermark the pictures, I use You just upload your picture, click on the "create" option and you can add text, stickers, etc. to the picture and then you can save it to your computer or you can save it to Flickr and make your Flickr page private so even if someone could get around the right click, they couldn't click on your picture and be able to bring it up to save it.
