It snowed in Charlotte.... here's the evidence.

Holden loves his new ornament that lights up and plays sounds.... he'd rather it not go on the tree so he can get to it at all times.

Holden helping Dad put the train together...

Dear 8 lb. 6 oz. new born infant Jesus.... don't even know a word yet.

I just need two more minutes! This part isn't quite right.....

I'm not sure who was more nervous about the goat.... Holden or Julie.

Holden had an amazing time seeing all the lights at Charlotte Motor Speedway

I love touching the necklace.... but not wearing it!!

It's for you!

We never taught him to put the cell phone up to his ear, he must have picked it up somewhere...

Mastering the slam dunk!

Who wouldn't dance to those sweet tunes?!

I don't think it's a coincidence...

that he is running his walker wherever the dogs are!

Overalls are an overall good choice

H is for Holden.
Or is this an I?

Hate this costume, I did...

Not sure about these ears, I was

Embrace the costume, I did


Tricycle Racing is a Saturday morning staple


Sometimes you gotta take it slow

But I prefer to go Fast!

I plan on helping Dad mow the lawn next year

Soo Glow-worm

Big things happenin

Holden now:
- has two teeth

-jumps up and down in excitement (occasionally for people but usually for food)

-stands up unassisted

-pats the dogs while saying Da-de (much different from the usual da-da)

-wakes up at 5:30

-moved up to the "Older Infant" room

-gives hugs!

We had to go shopping for warmer clothes after Daycare kindly asked us to dress him warmer since he had been going outside in shorts and a t-shirt with no shoes in the morning when it had been about 50 degrees.

I found what looks like a flower...


but is actually a weed

Did someone say FROZEN YOGURT?


Holden was so pysched about eating some of his moms frozen yogurt that when it was gone, he was so unhappy Pete nicknamed his mood "Separation from FroYo anxiety"

My jeans ride so low my dipe hangs out!

Out for a casual night of fun without Holden....

Is there such a thing as a Macaroni & Cheese birthday cake for my first birthday?

My first popsicle! Sooooo goooood.....

Holden attended a class on how to reach things on tables.... Monty was the teacher.

Holden loves Glo-Worm

But not as much as Dad!!

Baby's First Recorded Steps

He felt the pressure of his 1 year birthday fast approaching..... crawling is like the internet, it's just a fad.

Although adorable, this will not be Holden's halloween costume due to the sweating-possibility factor

Whew~what a weekend!


Baby's First Stroll down the street


after the tears shed over having shoes on, he really loved walking himself outside

We actually bought him something he likes!


It only took him two days to not be afraid of it

more good habits!


Popsicle= 5minutes of happiness


Light reading on a Saturday afternoon


That's my kitten!!
