Sweet Potato Pie

Like a true Southerner Beau loves Sweet Potato Pie!

He is doing a great job using his spoon, most all of the food makes it to his mouth! He is growing up so quickly it is amazing!

Beau is really looking forward to Thanksgiving at his Great Granny's in Pensacola. See you soon!

Going to get the trash can.

Beau loves to walk all the way down the drive way with Ben to get the trash can on Wednesdays.
And we have a long driveway.

I thought these would make the cutest pictures- but it was a little hazy.

Beau is 13 months old
He weights about 19 lbs ( we are hoping to turn his car seat around any day!)
He can run short distances
He and Ace are learning to chase each other- the laughing is music to my ears!
He can climb on and off his toy truck and plane.
He is starting to sit and read his books and is repeating sounds.
SNAIL- he says NAIL
We have introduced the potty before bath time and he loves it! (He has pee pied in it once!)
His favorite snacks are Cheetos puffs
He loves to throw ball and we are working on his golf swing!

AND he is the sweetest boy on earth!

Ben and I have been thinking about selling the house and we have finally taken the plunge!

Although home prices have dropped in the recent year; Havana seems to be holding it's value fairly well. Our short term plans are to sell and rent in the Downtown/Mid-Town area where we will be closer to work. We are both very excited about our decision. Right now we have the home for sale by owner for $345,000. Our home was built in 2007; has 3 bedrooms 2.5 baths and an additional office/bedroom. In a few weeks it will be listed with Mattice & Mattice. If you know anyone looking for a newer home in Havana- send them a link!

Please pray for us while we sell and hunt for a new place to live- we feel like this is the next step in Gods path for our family!

Beau's First Birthday!

Beau's first birthday was July 3rd! It is amazing how quickly time flys- it seems like we were just bringing him home from the hospital. Ben and I have been so blessed by his sweet smile! This child never ceases to amaze me! He is learning so quickly and is more proficient in pronouncing "Ace" than "Momma"- I shouldn't be surprised really....

His birthday shirt- we had to loose the shorts. (they were falling off- 6 month shorts on a 1 year old child....)

His Plane from Grammy and Grandad!

Working the gears...

Beau and his best buddy "Ace"

Beau got lots of presents and enjoyed playing in the tissue and paper.

A ball- Beau loves to throw ball!!

Birthday Cake- and I made it! Beau wasn't sure why everyone was singing...

YES, that is a frog- I knew what you were thinking. I am not exactly Martha Stewart- but it is the thought that counts right??

At first he was just eating icing. I think that was his favorite part- Buttercream!

Yummy CAKE!

On Wednesday Beau and I went for our 12 month check up-


Weighs 18.6 lbs- mind you he was stomping on the scale, accuracy???
27.5 inches tall
Percentile: 5% still a little ball of muscles.

He is babbling all the time, eating anything you put in front of him, holding all of his own bottles and sippy cups, walking and sometimes attempting to run, and my favorite milestone- HUGGING!

Ben and I both are looking forward to this next year!
