Mish Mash

This past Thursday, we went to east Texas to visit my grandparents for my Nanny's birthday and Mother's Day. We had a great time and Toots seemed to really enjoy everyone. Tim came by on Friday on his way to Beaumont to see his mom and then came back on Saturday night so he could be with us on Mother's Day. My mom came on Friday night and spent the rest of the weekend. We also went by my other grandparent's house (who live across the street from Nanny and Papa) on Sunday so Toots got to see them for the first time since he was about a month old as well. It was a great weekend :)

Toots got me a cute card and a new charm for my Pandora bracelet for Mother's Day. It's very pretty with light green jewels. I'm also getting a new vaccuum but Tim said Toots was NOT going to buy me a vaccuum for Mother's Day!

This week, we are supposed to be closing on the house. We had our final walk through today in anticipation of closing tomorrow afternoon but got a call late this afternoon that Bank of America's computer system went down so they couldn't get the last document they needed to send to the title company so we don't get to close tomorrow. I was/am pissed! But, as of right now at least, we should still be able to close on Thursday and still move in on Sunday. Please keep your fingers crossed for us that it all works out so we can move this weekend. I really want to be in and settled for Toot's baptism next weekend.

Toots has started a new thing where he has a shrill scream when he gets mad/upset about something. It's actually pretty funny but I think it could get annoying if he does it too much! I read that they will start doing that around this age because they are finding their voice and listening to the different sounds they can make. He is talking A LOT lately as well and making lots of new sounds. He's also sitting up better and can sort of sit up by himself with his hands between his legs, leaning over. He LOVES playing in his play yard and hitting all the toys. We try to rotate them out so he sees and plays with different ones. Right now there is a butterfly on top of a flower (it's a Lamaze toy) that vibrates when you pull it and the petals of the flower make crunchy noises. He isn't strong enough to pull it down to vibrate (it's actually pretty hard!) but he loves crunching the flowers and pulling on the rings on the bottom of it. He also still loves the bells we have on it and likes making them jingle. We also just started using the jumper (picture below). He doesn't jump, but he likes turning around and around in it and seems to enjoy being in it.

I guess that's about all. Again, please keep your fingers crossed for us on the house closing. Also, don't forget to enter the Giveaway I'm having (click the word "Giveaway" to be taken directly to the post). I mean, come on people, it's FREE stuff! What's better than that?!

Hope everyone had a great Mother's Day and has a wonderful week!

The beautiful flowers Tim brought me for our anniversary this past Monday. Aren't they gorgeous?!
Cutie patootie in his new outfit

Again in the new outfit. I think he looks like he's shy here haha. You can't see it, but under the alligator it says "Mr. Cool"

Toots with his great grandparents, Nanny and Papa. I know he is freaking out but I thought the picture was cute anyway.

Laughing with his Nanny. This went on for several minutes. He was getting a big kick out of her!

His awesome outfit from his BFF, Colt. It has a tank on the shirt and says "Major Hunk." Notice the adorable camo shorts!

Very impressed with the Japanese Gardens we visited last week with the playgroup...

First time in the jumper. Mom, whyyyy are you always taking pictures of me? Jeez!

LOVE the last picture... he looks too funny! It's amazing what HUGE personalities such little people can have.

Glad you had a good Mother's Day! (I'm glad you didn't get a vacuum!)
