berries and sweet peas

Well, we're trying to introduce self-feeding and its going ok but REALLY interesting. You should see the colors our skin turns after dinner!!!!! So far, Chip has had blue berries, raspberries, and sweet peas. Of course he loves it all (he just loves to eat!) but he thinks he is something eating the berries! It cracks us up. Anyway, all here is going really well. We are guessing he is about 26 inches long and approx 17-ish pounds. Growing like a weed and pulling up on anything his height that he can get a good grip on from the dishwasher door to the table piano Aunt Heather gave him at Christmas. Not much 'crawling' going on at all. The little he does we consider 'inch-worming' because all he does is drag himself along the carpet on his tummy with little to no leg/feet involvement. ALL hysterical all ways you look at it!

Sleepless in Dothan

So i've decided that the older he gets the WORSE bedtime becomes. The whole 'cry yourself to sleep' thing is torture on us all, going to sleep period is torture on us all, and sleeping through the night seems to be impossible right now with teeth cutting in and that being painful. oh, the things we do for our children and i continue to tell him, "if you weren't so cute i wouldn't like you very much right now!" Well, i guess its my turn to relieve tony from this torturous job. pray for us as we'll be trying to break the sleepless nights this weekend. til next time.....

YAY!!! I just was playing with Chip right before bedtime and as he was laughing i noticed something odd in his mouth. HOT DOG IT WAS HIS FIRST TOOTH! Praise God, maybe that means a decent night's rest just for one night 'til another one decides to start trying to poke through those sweet gums.
well all is going really good around here. i wanted to post some statistics that people are asking about. Chip is now 8 1/2 months old weighing approx 17 lbs. he eats like a PIG and is just as busy as he can be. We've not gotten any teeth in yet but we're trying as hard and as miserably as we can! He isn't crawling just yet but knows that he wants to be able to get up and go but can't so that's a frustration to mommy and him to put him where he wants to be 'til he learns to get there himself. He is pulling up on anything that is sturdy enough and on his level so whether crawling or walking is going to come first, we'll have to wait and see. He is just beautiful with a strong personality... definitely knows what he wants and how he wants it, determined and a little stubborn, maybe... and a smile that melts your heart and a laugh that tickles you deep down.

I want to let everyone know that we've rescheduled his dedication for April 19th (the Sunday AFTER easter) at 8:30 cst at Covenant United Methodist Church on 84 west in Dothan. We've decided that if something goes wrong this holiday we are going to have the pastor come to our house and pray over him in the backyard and not invite anyone again! we don't want 3 to be a charm!!! Please let me know if you can make it because we are wanting to have a brunch at mom and dad's after church. call me or reply to this blog and let us know if you can come! hoping that this finds everyone doing well and hope to see and hear from all of you soon.

Gaga and Papaw's visit

So Gaga and Papaw came to see us this past weekend and it was a BLAST!!! Gaga was a little slowed down by her green foot but we all had a blast and chip was, of course, spoiled a little extra over the weekend. Also, "Aunt" Katie got married and some of these are pics from that.

so sorry

Hello to all the family and friends! We are so sorry that we have been so lacking on the posts lately. The holidays came and went in a blur and then Tony has changed jobs, our internet at home was gone for a while, the store sold and business with all that was a little chaos, etc etc etc. You know how it is, too with an infant. NEVER any time to do little things like update a blog. I barely have time to take a shower every day. anyway, here are the newest pictures and tons more. I hope you all are doing well and maybe now we will be a little better at keeping everyone updated... no promises, though!!!

XOXO tony and rebecca
