Latest phone photos :)

We went shopping with his bestie Paisley, He can stand in his crib (we have since lowered it!), he loves his ball pit, he thinks that since mommy has her fall decor up that it's time to wear his Halloween jammies!, he can stand up by the ottoman, and he loves his Noah's Ark little people set that his JayJay gave him :)

It's Fall Yall!!!

At least at my house it is!! :)  I have all my indoor decor up and as soon as I see mums and pumpkins for sale, my outdoor decorations will be done too!!

With all the fun fall ideas on Pinterest these days, I decided to make a fall bucket list!! Of course, this is more for my benefit than Merritt's at this point...but I want to start traditions now!! :)

Doesn't it sound like we'll have a fun fall?!? Tack on my CRAZY fall photoshoot season, Harvest, a friends wedding and we are going to have a jam packed couple of months!! :)

I am most excited about Kindermusik!! We start September 10th and I just know the little man is going to love it!! :)  Stay tuned!!

Photo update!

More snap shots from my phone! He is officially crawling everywhere and getting into everything!! :) we have also transitioned into soft finger foods for lunch and he loves it!! Enjoy the pics!

Merritt 7 months!!

Yes! Seven months!! CRAYCRAY!!!

When he was born I loved him instantly and never thought I could love him more, but I seriously love this little boy more and more each day...especially when he sleeps for 12 hours at night..hehe!! Speaking of sleeping, his usual schedule goes as follows...8:45ish The Farmer gives him two tubs (I call them tubs!) of baby food..some sort of fruit mixed with cereal or oatmeal, then he has a 4 ounce bottle and I put him to bed! So by 9:30 he is usually in his crib sleeping away...he wakes up anywhere from 8:00 to 9:00 in the morning and he gets a 8 ounce bottle, he usually takes a morning nap but the time and length differ everyday. At noon he has two "tubs" of baby food, some sort of meat (turkey/chicken) and a fruit, then he usually takes another nap, again, time and length differ daily. When 5:00pm rolls around he has another 8 ounce bottle and will take another nap, then he is good to go until bedtime! Sometimes I give him cereal puffs and cheesy puffs while I'm cooking supper or if we are eating out, so he has something to do! He loves them, even if half of them end up on the floor! He is getting very good at using his thumb and index finger! He really doesn't have a favorite baby food...he loves it all except peas, but I haven't tried them in awhile! This week I am going to start giving him more "real" steamed veggies and mooshy fruit and see how that goes! He loves drinking out of a straw and prefers his sippy cup with a straw to the other ones that he has to tip up. And he now has 4?teeth! Two on bottom and two on the top!

He still weighs around 21 pounds and is wearing 6-12 month cloths in Gymboree and 12 months in Carters.
He is having much more fun with all his farm toys now and really loves his barn that lights up and makes noise. He still likes anything he can chew and put in his mouth. His favorite thing is trying to get the remote, our phones, or our touch pads, even though he has his own toy version of all three! I finally put his swing and bouncy seat away, but he still gets in his jumporoo sometimes, he really just prefers being on the floor and trying to crawl. Nope, he's not crawling yet but has literally been on the verge for a month!!! He is soo close and the past few days has been doing one or two "crawls" then just falls, but I think it is going to happen any day now! Last night he mastered getting into the sitting position from the crawling position and was pretty proud of himself when we cheered!! He still rolls and spins wherever he needs to go! He can stand beside something if you put him there, but not long enough for me to get a pic!!

He is still a super traveler and mainly sleeps or jabbers away while on the road!

He is also starting to make sounds!! He does his G's very well and you can sometimes catch a BooBoo. The only time he makes the an M sound is when he is mad! He still loves blowing raspberries and making a mess of his shirts!! He loves to smile and laugh and be tickled. Singing Little Bunny Foo Foo is still good for a guaranteed smile! He is really a happy, sweet baby and we are soo blessed to be his parents!! :)


This and that!

We have been traveling again! First to Omaha for The Farmers family vaycay, we stayed at a water park and went to the zoo! It was a very fun time! Merritt loved the zoo but he wasn't a fan of the water park. I wanted to make sure he saw the zebras so he could become familiar with at least one non farm animal! We got him a little stuffed zebra too, so maybe he will start to recognize it.. Hehe...If you must know, I hid the zebra in his toy box since it just doesn't "go" with the rest of his toys! Ha! Oh well, I tried!! The next stop was my company's yearly picnic in Indianola, Iowa. I finally got to show off my little man to all my co-workers! They loved him, of course! For the final leg of the trip, we met up with my fam, they came up for a quick visit before the summer ends! They brought Merritt a big farm to play in and tractor to play with! It used to be my nephew's and i know Merritt will love it as much as Cade did! Here are a couple pics of the trips and a some random ones I had on my phone! The babe turned 7 months last week, so stay tuned for a pic and stats when I find the time :) We also had our 3rd anniversary last week and the Farmer got me the camera Pandora charm!!! I LOVE it and him!! :) Oh and I think I forgot to tell y'all that he got me an embroidery machine for my birthday a couple weeks ago! It's the Brother PE-770 and it is AMAZING!! My momma and daddy got me over 100 different fabulous thread colors too, so I have been using every spare second trying to learn how to use it!! :)
