5 Months

I know I am a little behind in getting this posted, but since school has started back I haven't had time to do anything.  It's hard to go back to work after being off since Feb. 26th!  Oh well, I will manage.   I love Will's school and he does too, so that makes life easier. 

Here are some stats of Will at 5 mo:

-Weighs 18 lbs.  I know this because Will was sick for the very first time at the beginning of August and we had to take him in to the doctor. 
-Found his feet and loves to grab them all the time.
-Is easier to feed, Peaches are definitely a favorite food! 
-Is teething like crazy.  I think a tooth will bust through soon! 
-Loves his Jumperoo.  It's one of the best things we have. 
-Has been to the ocean and loved it!  We still go swimming once a week to keep him "interested" in the water.  Hopefully we'll be able to keep that up during the winter time. 
-Is definitely interested in the world around him.  He grabs for things all the time and rarely stops moving!  He is a kicker.  Miss Julie, at day care, jokes that Will has already run 5 miles before 9 am.  He is ALWAYS moving!
-At 5.5 months, Will can sit up on his own. 
After church, August 1, 2010.  Will is 5 months old!

I'm too big for my seat!

I love my Jumperoo!

On Saturday mornings, I nap with Daddy!

I love to sit on my Daddy's shoulders.

Happy Baby!

My First Time in Bible Class

Will's first time to Bible Class was actually Memorial Day weekend, when he was 3 mo old, but I guess the teachers just got around to taking this picture.  It was such a pleasant surprise and I love it!  I will cherish it always.  This picture was taken August 1 (Will is 5 mo old) and is enjoying going to bible class. The teachers tell me he laughs and coos and is never a problem!  I am so glad he is getting to learn about the Lord and having fun doing it!  It is the single most important thing you can do for your children!

Hilton Head

We headed to Hilton Head, SC for Will's first vacation to the beach after the stop in Atlanta to see the Braves play.   We chose Hilton Head for a few reasons: neither Pat or I had ever been, there is oil in the Gulf, Kelly and James could go with us, and we wanted to go to a Braves game.  We got up bright and early Wednesday morning and made our way to Hilton Head.  We spent our days lying on the beach and swimming in the ocean.  We spend out nights eating well, playing games (Apples to Apples and Loaded Questions were our favorite), and just spending time with each other.  Pat and I were so glad Kelly and James were able to come along.  We all had such a good time together making such great memories for our family.  It's so nice to get away sometimes.

Pat made me flip the bill up.  We couldn't see his face.

First time in the ocean! 

So tired after his swim!

Shower time!  It's hard to get all that sunscreen off.

My lens was foggy because of all the humidity.

More pictures to come!!!!
