Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!
Connor has had a wonderful first Christmas...and his Christmas will continue for about another week! We started Christmas at home on Tuesday morning. We had our family Christmas with Mommy, Daddy and Connor on Tuesday morning before we started our 10 day trip over the southeast. Wednesday morning, we headed to Atlanta to have Christmas Eve with Jeremy's family at his grandparent's house. We haed a lot of fun with Gigi and Great-Granddaddy, Mimi and Bobbles, and all of Connor aunts, uncles, and cousins! After a busy, napless day in Atlanta, we headed to LaGrange. Connor was an angel all day, even without a nap! We had Christmas with Sunshine, Granddaddy, Ree and Stan this morning and then Jeremy and I enjoyed our second movie date of the year! Connor, of course, had a great time with Sunshine and Granddaddy! More family is heading to town tomorrow and we will celebrate Christmas with some of them this weekend. We are then heading to Huntsville for more Christmas celebrations at the beginning of next week! Connor will end up seeing almost all of his family in 10 days! So far, we're having a great 1st Christmas!!

What's going on at the White House?

I haven't blogged lately, so I'm going to catch up with a few pictures here! I don't like to blog unless I have cute pictures to show and it is hard to take cute pictures when you are constantly trying to keep an 11 month old off of the stairs! Yes, I know: we need to buy a gate for the stairs. Well, we did but, when we tried to install it we realized that unfortunately, our stairs were not made for babies. The baseboard of the stairs and the height of the banister make it impossible to put a gate on the stairs. So, after more gate searching, we decided to just put a gate in the den to limit him from going to the kitchen where the stairs are located. I'll just have to continue watching him near the stairs when we're in the kitchen! Connor was not too happy after his nap when he found the gate in the den and realized it prevented him from getting to the stairs!
Connor's been eating so well lately! Connor's been eating Cheerios since he was less than 7 months old and we have introduced different table foods throughout the past several months a little at a time, but he was still eating baby food until Thanksgiving. Since Thanksgiving, Connor has not had any baby food because he won't touch it! He only wants what Mommy and Daddy are eating! Some of his favorites include waffles, green beans, peas, mac & cheese, cheese quesadillas, poppy-seed chicken, grilled cheese, pasta, and bread! So far, he eats whatever we offer him! Hopefully, this will continue, but we'll see!

Well, here are a few pictures from the past couple of weeks!

Thanksgiving Week!

Connor and I had a busy couple of weeks. We traveled to LaGrange, then to Atlanta. Connor had lots of firsts: first trip to Fantasy in Lights at Callaway Gardens, first basketball game (LC game), first trip to The Varsity, and first Thanksgiving! I did not take as many pictures as I should have, but here are a few from our week. We had a blast with my family in LaGrange first and then Jeremy's family in Atlanta. Connor shopped and shopped and shopped all over Atlanta and he did a great job! He was a perfect angel the whole trip! We hope that everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving! Now, it's time to get ready for Christmas!

Funny Baby

Connor is SO busy now! He is into EVERYTHING! He wants to get into everything and finds things so fascinating! It is so much fun to watch him...and exhausting!

Learning to climb the stairs!
Helping mommy load the dishwasher!

Diving in the toy basket to get a toy!

Sweet laugh!

Watching for Daddy!

Connor often sits with his feet crossed, almost in indian style! It is so cute! And we CANNOT keep socks or shoes on his feet! He pulls them off as soon as we put them on. I've had to backtrack through Target to find socks that he has thrown off while shopping and I've lost a pair while out shopping! I know people look at me when we are out and about and think what a terrible mom I am for not putting socks on his feet, but let me assure you Connor never leaves the house (now that it is cold) without socks on his feet. And, then I always put the socks back on his feet when we get to our destination (because they are always pulled off on the way to the destination), but I cannot seem to keep them on him! As soon as he sees his feet, he starts pulling the socks off! Any suggestions for keeping socks on his feet during the winter?
They sure are cute feet though!

More Pictures

Connor had a great time with Sunshine and Granddaddy last week! And he is looking forward to seeing Mimi and Bobbles this weekend!

Connor really received two Christmas presents in one last week. He receive his push car (seen in the previous post) and he received the box that it came in! He loves crawling through things, especially his new box tunnel!

Consignment Stores are great! My mom and I went to the one around the corner from my house last week and bought Connor some new toys. Here's one of his favorites...

And, here's another one I bought yesterday!

Happy Fall!

Mommy, Daddy and Connor went to the Pumpkin Patch last Saturday. We tried so hard to get a good picture of Connor in front of the pumpkins, but if he smiled, he turned his head, and if he was looking at the camera, he would not smile. He was fascinated with the hay and kept studying it, so most of my pictures are of him looking at pieces of hay. These are the best ones that I took!

Connor received an early Christmas present last week from Sunshine and Granddaddy. He received a push car and he LOVES it! We have been taking a ride in it every day and some days he lunges for it when we get out of the Explorer! He loves his new car! Thank you Sunshine and Granddaddy!
