Anyway, after Beau is done eating we will give him his spoon to play with in his chair. ( I am careful to make sure he doesn't hurt himself with it) It is so cute because Beau will grab the spoon on the correct end and put it in his mouth correctly. I am thinking this is good for his dexterity and to practice feeding himself one day.
Ben notices that he only grabs the spoon with his left hand!!! BEN: SEE I TOLD YOU HE WAS GOING TO BE LEFT HANDED and I am like OK lets test it. So we grab it from him and set it down, grabs with left hand, we move the spoon closer to his right hand, reaches over and grabs with left hand, we put it out of reach on his right side and he stretches with his LEFT HAND.
So I guess my son really is left handed. We will continue to test the theory. I just thought it was funny and worth sharing. It is funny Ben and I are both right handed and the only person that is left handed in either of our families is my dad. He will be so proud!!

This is our Christmas card picture. There is this one red ordiment on our tree that he just stares at. It is so funny. He grabs the limbs and pulls kinda hard I am afraid he might knock an ordiment or 2 off the tree. I guess that is a vision into the future.
He is growing up so quickly he is no longer acts an infant, he has grown into a baby boy and soon will be a toodler. I am afriad he will be standing sooner than we are expecting. He loves to stand and play. This weekend we visted the Alday family and it was so fun to see Beau interact with Callie and Hayes. I can't wait for him to be able to run around and play.
Extra random pictures: These are too cute not to post. Beau is really starting to enjoy his high chair. A whole new element has been added to dinner time.

For Thanksgiving Ben, Beau, and I went to Ben's Granny's house in Milton, FL. We really enjoyed our visit. I always look forward to visitng Ben's family. It is a time of relaxation, good food, and family; some of my favorite things in life.
Granny put Beau in the laundry basket. She said "back in the day" that is what you did with babies. They can sit up and play and their toys
are never out of reach. It is a great idea!!
Beau loved the laundry basket! He watched Daddy mow all the leaves up for his Great Granny.

It also appears that my son my be an IT guy when he grows up!!! Doesn't this remind you of that online trading commercial...
Beau had just woke up and I could here him talking to himself in his room. So I snuck into his room to watch him and he was playing with his blanket. It was so cute, he was looking at all the colors and just talking up a storm. These are the picts I took, SO SWEET! He always wakes up happy it is the most precious thing I have ever seen!!

Ben and I have so much to be thankful for. This year has been wonderful. We have enjoyed another year in our beautiful home, and have been blessed with a wonderful son. Sometimes I feel too lucky. I could have never imagined my life to be so perfect. Ben and I have good health, loyal friends, loving family, a strong realtionship with our Savior, and continue to have a unbreakable bond together.
"And if a man prevail against him that is alone, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken."

25 inches long!!!!!!!!!!!
I knew he seemed like a long baby. He only weight 12.8 lbs, he is long and skinny. Not like his mama, thankfully!!
He is developing so quickly last night I was reading him a book before his bath and he was trying to hold the book and turn the pages. He was facinated with the bright colors on the pages. Of course we were reading Bambi in the Medow, daddy wants to start him early.
