Fred Howard Park

This is from Spring Break, we were able to sneak off to Fred Howard Park, it's like 30 minutes away, totally secluded and awesome!

9mo stats

Bayer at 9 months is...

Weight: 21 lbs 4 0z (75%)
Height: 29 3/4 in (95%)
Head: 18.25 in (100+%) (Guess he got a Dickson head after all)

Bayer is a trooper, he's starting to stand up on everything and walk around the edges of furniture. He finds the weirdest stuff to play with and the dirtiest places to go--like every trash can we own!? He's a total mama's boy. He's starting to get separation anxiety--whoopee! It's sorta cute......sometimes.

He's still an awesome sleeper. He's kind of a picky eater, which is a new development. He will only eat if he feeds himself, which is hard for an OCD dad. I love how we put towels underneath Bayer's high chair every meal. Brandon's made me weird now too.

Bayer has his 8th tooth coming out right now. Its getting to the point where you see his teeth when he smiles and i absolutely loveeee it. Gosh, I don't want him to get any bigger. His cheeks are so soft, fat, and cold=smoochable.

Well, this is a rambling post. Night.

Florida Strawberry Festival

I love Bayer's face, he just woke up. This is the poultry and rabbit show tent.
Eating strawberry shortcake...yum.
My sweet little Grayson was loving the sscake too.
Elle loving the merry go round.
BayBay wasn't too upset he couldn't go on the rides
My dad was having more fun than the kids.
I wish he liked lollipops.

I'm such a wuss, I almost cried when I shot a gun, it's really scary. However, it was really fun because Brandon loves guns and it's important to support each others interests. Last week was Bran's Spring Break so we tried to fill every day with fun activities. More to follow...

Bayer: 8 months old

Our little Bay Bay is getting so big! He's our comfort, fun, and joy. I am so grateful & blessed with such a fun and handsome little boy. Bayer started crawling on the 22nd of February, he also got 5 more teeth in this past week--poor little guy. Bayer has a total of 7 teeth! He loves his teething ring, he holds it for about 6 hours at a time. He likes to find objects and hold them the majority of the day.

He has been sleep trained for the nighttime routine, but we're still working on nap time. He loves his daddy because he is the one who rough houses with him. He sits at dinner with Brandon and I in his high chair and has started to put food into his mouth on his own! YAY!

Bayer tries to stand up on objects and he thinks he's pretty cool while doing so. He loves wheels, meaning his mom loves wheels too. He loves blueberries, strawberries, bread, graham crackers, and oranges. He loves easy mac too.

One of my favorite things about Bayer is to watch his face when we walk outside. The florida sun is bright and he loves it! He get this square face smile.

I love to look at all his pictures and see how much he's changed. It reminds me of how much we've grown as parents and how much our lives have changed. We are so in love with my little guy it hurts!! (gritting teeth)
