I created this blog specifically with Mom & Dad in mind. Even though they can't be here in Oregon to enjoy their grandchildren, I thought this would be one way to help keep them in touch. I am also glad it can be used to keep all of my friends and family in touch as well!
What a joy it is to celebrate Christmas with your child. Not that William was really interested in any of the toys, but he LOVED all the paper, bows and lights (don't worry, he got interested in the toys later)!
My parents came up for Christmas so we were blessed to be able to spend Christmas day with both my family and Curtis'. My brother met up with his biological family a couple weeks before Christmas and was actually able to bring his bio brother and cousin along with him on their trip to Oregon. It was nice to meet them and spend some time getting to know them. Here's a pic of one of the Christmas presents we made with them...some handmade marshmallow shooters.
William's Aunt Lori arranged for all the cousins to have matching sweaters. It was way too cute to see them all matching.
So, our camera went missing for a few weeks...William's now 10 months old and I can hardly beleive how quickly time passes. He enjoys pulling himself up on everything! Mom can't take her eye of him for very long before he's gotten into something (o: He flashes that mischevious smile after I've told him "No" and reaches out to try it again...Just in case mom's changed her mind. He's definitely said the words "Dadda" and "Mamma" and enjoys eating almost anything mom puts in front of him...as well as many things she doesn't (o: Here are some recent pics...
William decided he could help mom with the dishwasher...
My litte boy in his snow hat...minus the snow (o:
Helping Mom wrap Christmas gifts
The smile that melts my heart...Even when he's in trouble.
