Better late than never...

I know it's a little late but here are a few cute pics from Halloween. We had the cutest duck ever if I do say so myself! Grey LOVES ducks so it was the perfect costume :) I think next year Grey will be a pro at trick-or-treating, this year he just had fun following around his cousins.

He's ready to go!

I had to get a shot of his tail feathers! So cute!

He was more interested in playing in the gravel on the road, I'm sure next year will be different!

We ran into our friends that live in our neighborhood. Chloe was the cutest pirate!!

Kalli and Kaiden checking out all their goodies. Kalli was Tinkerbell and Kaiden was Frankenstein! Cute and scary!

For some reason we didn't get a pic of all the kids together. Maybe next year!

Watch Out!

Grey figured out how to ride on the battery-operated four wheeler, thankfully he knows how to hold on too! It doesn't move very fast, especially in the grass, but he sure has fun riding on it!

So yes, not only does he look like his daddy but he already shares the same hobbies. I swear he's my child too!

Birthday Boy!!!

Today is Greyson's first birthday!! It's SO hard to believe that it's been a year already. In honor of his birthday here are some pics from the past year (I'm not on my laptop so these are all from my phone). Love you baby boy!!

It's been one of the best years of my life! It's a tough job, but I'm so grateful to be a mother!

It's Official! Grey is Walking!

It happened last night (June 25th) for sure! (He took 1 step for me last week but he hasn't done it again until last night) I was watching tv while Aaron and Grey were playing and Grey took his first few steps to Aaron :) I got the video camera out and Aaron set it up to record while he and I coaxed Grey to walk to/from us. Sure enough, Grey took 7 steps for the camera!! My little boy is growing up :( It was a very exciting night and a sad one too...he's just growing so fast, he'll be 10 months next week! I love him SO much and can't imagine my life without him though.

Also, Grey can now say a few words:
Hi (which is more like "Hiiiiiiiii" but he says it and waves sometimes, so cute!)
Buh-bye (every now and then he'll say it when he's waving, it's probably just babble but it sounds like "buh-bye")

Greyson's 1st Motorcross Race

A few months ago Aaron's boss John and his lil family came to town for the New Orleans Motorcross race. John and Lisa have a little boy just a few months younger than Grey named Anthony and he is SO adorable! He had the cutest little faux-hawk! Needless to say, this was a momentous occasion for all of us since it was the boys' first motorcross race :) I was a little worried because we had a loooong day planned, but both babies did great! We left Denham around 10am and headed to New Orleans. Then we went to lunch at Drago's with some reps. Aaron works with. If you ever go to Drago's you MUST order the charbroiled oysters, they were SO good! After lunch we had some time to kill before the races started but it was raining so we just decided to go watch the riders practice. Then the races started at 7pm-surprisingly we stayed for all the races and didn't get home til after midnight! I told ya it was a long day, but we had a lot of fun.

Here are the boys' with their proud daddys.

John and Anthony & Aaron and Grey (notice how no one is looking in the same
Aaron got Grey the cutest little motorcross onesie so he had to wear it at the race!

Grey thought the race was a real nail biter!

This was the only picture of me at the race for some reason, but it's proof that I went!

Half Lizard-Half Boy

So lately Grey has been sticking his tongue out nonstop! It sure makes for a cute pic though! He's teething so I'm thinking that's the reason why. He's got his two, front bottom teeth and is working on one of his front top. I'll have to get a picture of him smiling but it's been hard with that tongue in the way!

It's a bird! It's a plane! No, wait it WAS a bird!!

Last night my Aunt Michelle came over to do some family history research with me, we both were not familiar with the website and the process so we went to the Family History Library together to get the run down and start building our family tree. Well afterwards we decided to get some dessert at Chili's and visit Robin at work, which was fun :) FYI-My headlights were really bad so Aaron, being the good hubby that he is, ordered me new ones and installed them for me the night before. On our way home after Chili's out of the corner of my eye I saw something BIG flying towards us and then BAM, it hit my car on the frame between the windshield and the driver's side window! I was so freaked out and didn't know what I hit at first because it was dark, but I soon put everything together and realized a bird flew into my car. That was the first animal I hit and killed :( (Hopefully it'll be the last!) It was a good thing that Aaron replaced my headlights because they were reeeeally bad, I probably would have thought I hit a person if they hadn't been replaced! So sadly a bird lost it's life last night, I'm pretty sure it was an owl too. I'll be holding a memorial service tonight for all those who wish to attend.

There's No Place Like Home...

So last night we had some really bad thunderstorms. When Aaron and I went to bed we saw on tv that there was a tornado watch for our area but we didn't think much of it and went to bed. Well, around 1:30am Aaron and I both woke up to some really loud rain and then hail... Once Aaron said it was hailing I asked if he thought there was a tornado near us because the wind was SO loud, well we immediately jumped out of bed. I ran and got Greyson out of his crib and met Aaron in the hall were he told me to get in the closet with Greyson. I was shaking by this point I was so scared! Not to mention I was scared for Aaron because he didn't get in the closet with us! Crazy guy! It felt like I was in the closet forever but i'm sure it was only a few minutes then Aaron came and got me and said it was over but our patio cover didn't survive. We were just so glad that we were all safe and our home wasn't damaged too bad. The news didn't say anything about a tornado touching down in our area but Aaron and I both think there was one. Especially after seeing the damage this morning.

Hurricane Gustav didn't blow it down but a bad thunderstorm and possible tornado sure did! I guess that's what homeowner's insurance is for, looks like we'll be getting a new awning and possibly a new roof. I'll be sure to post pics of the replacement, hopefully it won't take too long for us to get it all fixed! The worst news is there supposed to be more bad weather tonight, I pray everyone stays safe!

Here comes Greyson Cottontail!!

I know 20 years from now Greyson will kill me for this picture but I had to do it! He's so adorable! Plus it's getting me in the mood for Spring and Easter!
*Yes, I do dress my child this was taken right before he got dressed one morning. Check out that Budha belly! That's our chunky monkey, I mean Greyson Cottontail!

How time flies!

Ok so it's been a very long time since I've updated my blog... I have no excuses, I just never seem to get around to it.
So here an update since the last post, Greyson is now 6 months old! Crazyness! We went for his checkup this week and he's weighing in at 18lbs and is 27inches tall. He is officially getting into things, he hasn't started to crawl yet but that doesn't mean he can't get around. He's quite the roller/scooter! Last night he managed to get on the tile in front of the fireplace while I was cooking dinner so when I looked over to check on him, there he is on his tummy just smiling at me on the tile. I went over to move him back on the carpet since he sometimes does face plants when trying to roll over or scoot and right before I got to him he pushed up on his hands and knees. This was the first I've seen him in the "crawl" position so I was very excited but unfortunately because he was on the tile I had to move him so he wouldn't bump his head when he lost his balance. He'll be crawling soon though! Grey is also babbling a lot lately, it's so cute to hear him talk and the expressions he makes while talking are adorable! I just love that boy!

Well here are some random pictures from the past 3 months...

Boys in blue! Grey & Papa on the 3-wheeler.

After the 3-wheeler ride we all took a walk through the woods, Grey discovered leaves for the first time. He was so intrigued :)

Of course Daddy let him taste the leaves too. I thought I had a pic of him eating them but I guess not. He's all boy!

Grey is now eating some baby foods, here he is in his highchair. At this point he's had: Peas, carrots, sweat potato, banana, and the rice cereal and oatmeal. Next up is squash! Yum!

We've just recently introduced him to the sippy cup. He has no problem holding it and getting it to his month but I think he enjoys chewing on it rather than drinking from it, that may be because theres only water in there now. I'm sure when he starts drinking juice he'll love it!
