SEC Championship

I headed to ATL to watch Auburn play South Carolina in the SEC Championship the first weekend in December.  Many thanks to Pat for letting me go and have fun with my college girl friends while he stayed here and took care of Will!  He'll be doing it again, for four days this time, when I head to Glendale in Jan to watch Auburn play in the National Championship Game!  WAR EAGLE!

Pat and Will hung out with our good friends.  Will and Grayson are big buddies and have the best time together.  Thanks Melissa for all the cute pics!

Christmas is Coming!

I am so far behind in blogging.  We have had a super busy December.  It is my hope that I am able to catch up this week and get more blogging efficient in the new year!  Check back for several posts in the next few days.

Here are a few pics of us getting ready for Christmas!  Will has thoroughly enjoyed the tree and all the ornaments on it.

Will is 9 Months Old

Will has accomplished a lot in his short little life.  Most of all, he has changed so much since December 1 (Will's 9 mo bday).

Stats at 9 Months:

  • Still low crawls all over the place.  I was beginning to believe that Will wouldn't really crawl the traditional way, but on Dec. 10, away he went.  He still prefers the low crawl.  He can get around faster.
  • Pulls up on everything.  He had trouble pulling up on the coffee table(it's a little too tall), but on Dec. 11 up he came!
  • On the 12th, he walked around the coffee table, pulling all of it's possessions to the floor as he passed them!
  • Weighs 21 lb 7 oz.  He's slimmed down a little!
  • 30 1/2 in tall.  He's still off the charts in height.  I hope it stays that way.
  • Waves bye bye
  • Has some allergies....to what, who knows....that cause him to break out into hives for just a short period of time.  They come and go so fast you can't really make any rhyme or reason of it.  I had some allergies like this when I was younger.  Doctors could not figure out what it was and I eventually grew out of it.  You can tell that he was breaking out in the doctor's office while we where there, but was fine by the time we left.
  • Is absolutely my WHOLE WORLD and the JOY of MY LIFE!
Love you sweet baby Will!

Thanksgiving Day!

Pat and I are blessed with families that live so close.  We never have to travel far on holidays and we are always able to be with the ones we love.  Thanksgiving is a long day for Pat and me.  We start at my parents house for lunch and finish at Pat's Dad's house for an early dinner.  Needless to say, we are stuffed and tired by the end of the day.  But, We are thankful!  Will was a trooper and traveled along with us to all of our destinations.  He was the star of the show at both houses and is so loved by everyone.  I can't wait for him to be old enough to enjoy and remember all this LOVE!  He blesses our lives daily and we are most thankful for him this Holiday Season!
