Cool Friend Makes Me Look Cool?

This is a visual representation of the text on our blog during my first pregnancy and Lee's first 7 months of life. Cleaning has been a hot topic on my mind since Lee arrived!

(I stole this idea from my incredibly cool friend Marlene.  She found it on Wordle.)

Jack

I am a task-oriented person.  I rarely start anything unless I know I can finish it to the nth degree.  Walk into my house, and you will know the cleaning takes a hit from this approach; any cleaning that usually gets done is compliments of Bryan!  (Now, when I do clean, it is incredibly thorough and overdone.  But you would hardly notice because I can only cover a small area at a time with my OCD tendencies.)

Since Lee was born, I have become captive to the desire to create a home for my family that encourages peace and relaxation.  Unfortunately, I have become a hermit to do this, and have neglected that part of myself that needs others around - for accountability, laughter, discussion, prayer, etc.  The Lord has been reminding me lately not to let myself become too isolated, lest I become stagnant.

My best Atlanta friend, Christina, lives around the corner from me, and she has a little boy who is only eight days younger than Lee.  Jack and Lee have met each other only THREE TIMES since they were born!

Christina and I have devised a plan; we will exercise together one night a week for adult conversation, and get our little boys together at least once a month for a play date.  They are both so cute, and Christina's older boy, James, is winning my heart more each time I see him!  Check him out on the video reminding the little ones to share:

Aunt x 2

When we were in Memphis for Christmas, we found out Peanut Weeks is on the way!  My sister (Chloe) and her husband (Jason) are very excited - as are we!  Darla and Gracie were actually the ones who made the announcement to us:


Stay tuned for a new link to their family blog on our site, and find out the answer to the burning question:  If it is a boy, will Jason get to name him Tiger?

Practice Makes Perfect

Lee is working on his form.  Thankfully, he still can only crawl backwards, away from what he wants, but he can scoot forward in the seated position faster than you can turn around!

I had to remove the camera strap because I can't get any good videos of him with it on the camera...

Combined

  
A friend sent a comment one day asking to see pictures of Bryan and me when we were Lee's age.  I often think it is amazing how kids really do look like both parents; it just depends when you catch them.  I still think Lee favors Bryan the most, but he is definitely my boy, too!  Enjoy this little walk down memory lane...

Teeth!

Lee actually got these pretty babies on Nov. 28th, but it has taken me this long to be able to capture them on film!

Safety Hazard

This was not the first time we found Lee like this in his crib after sleeping.  The good news is he is apparently learning to entertain himself in the crib when he wakes up.  The bad news is that we need to figure out how to fix this, no matter how cute it is!

Hey, Mom, what's up?

Um, I dropped my paci.  Will you please get it for me?
