Henry is 5 months old!

Henry is such a happy baby!

Grace Ann helped me stage this photo shoot and she is a great stylist!

At this stage in his life, Henry is loving all his playthings: the play mat, the bouncy seat, links, and the jumpy/control center!

Which is great for me because he is still staying put!

However, he loves to kick those chunky legs and gets so excited when he sees his daddy!

Last week, we started him on rice cereal at night and he is a great eater...of course he is! He comes from a long line of great eaters!

Today, we went for a weight check so I could refill his reflux medicine and he is already

17lbs. and 4 oz.

Other important Henry facts:

  • he is belly laughing especially when sister puts on her "show"

  • curious about Oscar

  • loves, loves, loves kisses and being held

  • still attached to paci, but going longer each day without it in his mouth

  • gets bashful and loves to hide in your neck

  • sleeping through night (12 hours)

  • take two naps: 10a-11a and 1:30-4:00p

  • eats every three hours

I am trying to get caught up on posting, but believe it or not I am super busy these days and sitting at the computer is a luxury!

Happy Anniversary Babe!

Est. Aug. 9, 2003

Happy 8th (count 'em) Anniversary babe!

I can't believe that 8 years ago I walked down the aisle and we became a family!
You are the most wonderful husband and father to our children that I ever could have asked for!
You are the rock for our family and the glue that holds us together.
I love you and here is to many many more happy years!

Love, the other babe

GA's 1st movie to see Winnie the Pooh!

Can you tell they loved the movie?!
They were too cute!

I got my ticket!
Giving the ticket to the "movie guy."

The Skinny Arm

I love my girlfriends! I feel so darn lucky to have had these ladies in my life since we pledged our sorority blank years ago! Okay it was 12 years ago...yikes! These are pictures from a photo-op we took before we went out to eat and Russell did a pretty good job of capturing me learning the "skinny arm" pose.

The coaching begins...

Emily and Brittney coaching me!

Almost perfected...

Not too bad, but I think I need to hit the weights, too!

Swim Lessons

Grace Ann took her first private swim lessons in the beginning of July and I am so glad she did. It was hard for at first because let's face it she's 2 and just wanted to do things her way. So after I got in the pool with her and pumped her up (because I knew she could do it) she did really well. Because of those first little lessons she has gotten much more confident each time she swims and now goes underwater all by herself and swims back and forth from me and Russ! I am so proud of her and breathing a sigh of relief! Now if she fell into a pool on accident she knows what to do!

Henry enjoyed swim lessons as well!

Pushing off from the side...

GA and Ms. Jeannie

Oceana was a huge help! She pushed Henry in the stroller while I was with GA

in the pool.

4th of July 2011

We spent the 4th in a very relaxed manner. Oceana, GA, Henry and me and Russ hung out at the island house with Russell's parents. We took Oceana and GA to the beach and Henry got to hang out with Meme! These aren't all my pics, I used two cameras and I can't find the card to the other camera. If I have any energy left, I will post those when I find the card, but chances are that won't happen! But enjoy the ones below:

The fam chowing down!

Just wanted to add this picture of Henry staring at the ladies!
