Lawrence is 10 Months Old!!!: (February 17, 2013)

Lawrence, you are 10 months old!!!! In just 2 months you will be my little one year old!! You are my happy little boy with so much personality!

At ten months old, you:

*** weigh 17 lb 15.5 oz (15% for weight) and your height is 30 inches (90% for height)

*** are still wearing size 12-18 month clothes and size 3 pampers diapers

*** have a total of four teeth...two on the top and two on the bottom

*** are taking only about a 30 minute nap during the day, but go to bed at 5-5:30pm and you sleep until 6:30-7am with two feedings in-between

*** love eating and love eating all of your solid foods. You eat peas, broccoli, carrots, brussel sprouts, hummus, chicken, beef, salmon, eggs, waffles, bananas, strawberries, blueberries, pears, grilled cheese sandwiches, and even peanut butter & jelly sandwiches (after you took a piece of Briana's sandwich and put it in your mouth and ate it...luckily, you are not allergic to peanut butter)

Happily eating shredded chicken

*** are a really fast crawler now and love to follow Briana wherever she goes and love trying to do whatever she does

Taking a ride on the train together

*** Your absolute favorite game is "Peek a Boo" and you smile and laugh whenever anyone plays with you, and you have learned how to put an object in front of your face and take it's really cute to watch!

*** You adore your Daddy and love spending time with him!

Valentine's Day Celebrations 2013

Lawrence, you had your first Valentine's Party this year! Mommy invited your playgroup friends over:

Briana's playgroup also had a Valentine's Day party at Keira's park! These are the same friends you've had since you were 8 months old:) You had a great time playing with your friends, decorating paper bags, giving and collecting Valentine's, and eating cupcakes.

Then on Valentine's Day after dance class, you had a Valentine's party at your house with your friends Cassidy, Keira, Ella, Elle, and Katie. Everyone brought really yummy food (thank you!!), you did heart cookie cutter painting, painted a letter B hook, made a letter B picture with stamps and stickers, listened to Mackenzie read a Valentine's story, and of course, posed for a lot of pictures:)

And an awesome picture taken by Mackenzie.

Happy Valentine's Day Briana and Lawrence!! We love you sooooooooooooooooooo much!!!

Lawrence is 9 Months Old!!!!: (January 17, 2013)

Lawrence, you are 9 months old!!

This first picture is blurry because you are just SO ACTIVE now! You would sit for a few seconds before trying to dive off of the chair:)

You are now officially crawling, and it is so neat for us to watch you explore and choose what you want to do!!! You are also pulling up and standing while holding onto something, and have just begun cruising around the furniture.

You love Briana's trampoline, and you just love standing up there:

You also love crawling in the playhouse and exploring all the fun toys Briana put in there.

Standing at the kitchen is another one of your favorite things to do, and it's even more fun when Briana's playing there with you!

Another one of your favorite activities is playing with whatever Briana is playing with. You just love being with her! Here she is reading a book to you and trying to make sure your foot is warm.

You also love playing outside, and you love swinging in your swing, and crawling around the grass and standing wherever you can.

We love you so much Lawrence and are so thankful for what a happy, healthy, active little boy you are!!!!

Christmas Celebrations 2012

The first activity we did to celebrate Christmas was to go to Winter Wonderland in Hilltop Park. You had just as much fun as last year, and it was even better because Lawrence was with us this year!!!
We didn't take too many pictures, just the ones with Santa!!

We're sorry Lawrence, you were definitely scared of Santa:(

Later in December, our family went to the Safari Park to have breakfast with Santa, and Mackenzie and Ella came too! You girls both had so much fun together...especially decorating the sugar cookies together, and being silly after we left the breakfast.

On Christmas Eve, you put out cookies and milk for Santa and couldn't wait to get to bed so Santa Clause would come!

Look, Santa came and brought you and Lawrence presents!!

Christmas morning snuggles in your matching pajamas!!

Lawrence, you had so much fun helping to unwrap the presents and play with the wrapping paper.

Here are some of your favorite gifts, Lawrence:

Briana, you liked all your gifts and this is your "picture smile" when we ask you to smile for the camera:)

You LOVE your trampoline and jump on it whenever you can!
