November 28th, 2009 Thanksgiving festivities

We had 2 Thanksgiving's this year. Daddy had to work Thanksgiving Day while William and I spent the day at his Mom's with all the step-relatives. It was a great time, as always. It's taken me awhile to get this post up, but I had a few fun pics to post.

Ray, Colby and Jessie decided they'd try William's method of getting around...

Colby just loved William!

The girls (Kennedy & Jessi) and I with William. How they make me laugh.

Our 2nd Thanksgiving was spent in Kelso at my Aunt and Uncle's house. Here's some fun pics from that day too!

One of my favorites...Me and my sweet cousins Syd & Addi

So Sweet...My 93 year old Great Grandma and William...Love it.

November 26th, 2009 Thanksgiving trip to MN

William's first Thanksgiving. We actually made a trip back to MN to visit my Mom's side of the family for the holidays. Curtis had never been and I couldn't remember the last time I had been back to see everyone. We actually left before Thanksgiving Day because Curtis had to work, but were able to spend some quality time with my grandparents, aunts & uncles, and cousins. I'll post a few pics on this post, but there were far too many to post them all. For those who want to see the rest, I'll get them on Facebook...eventually (o:

Nov. 16th, 2009 My First Haircut

Mom decided it was time to give William his first haircut. I know, he hardly has any hair, but those little hair "wings" above his ears were driving me nuts (o: I sat him in his highchair and snipped away. The photos aren't much, but you can see that he decided after the first snip that he wasn't too thrilled with having to sit still. I saved the little "snips" for his baby book.

I also recently gave William a bath in the kitchen sink...Hadn't done that in awhile! It was a nice substitute for our current lack of a bathtub in the house (due to a little remodeling). He loves water; cried when I went to take him out (o:

Nov. 5th, 2009 Pullin' himself up

It's really not going to be long before William's walking. He's learned that he can muster up enough strength to pull himself up to things and he's loving it! He loves holding onto our hands and walking all around. He gets a huge smile on his face and it's pretty cute. Here's a pic of when he found mom's small stool....A very nice height to pull himself up to. He got into a stand and then just stood there for a very long time. Didn't get frustrated, just talked and smiled and bounced around like "Look at me Mom...Look what I can do!" I even left the room to see if he'd cry. Nope. He enjoyed himself for quite a while until he had to figure out how to get down on his own. He made it...little bump on the head, but he made it. I'm sure there will be many more "bumps" to come.

**William's definitely starting to talk too. He says "Dadda" all the time. And when he's not saying "Dadda", he's …

And along came tooth #2...same spot on the top just the other side. Now we're wondering where the front two are..."All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth!" (o:
