Happy Spring, 8 Months Old!

Happy Spring! April 21st, Call turned 8 months old. I cannot believe it. I think I may say that every month, but really!! Time has gone by soo fast. My sweet baby is now crawling and pulling up on everything. He says quite a few new sounds. Such as, ba ba, da da, ga ga. I haven't heard ma ma yet! He loves to talk while he is crawling around and playing. He has recently discovered that doors open and close. He also loves to pull all the drawers out of my jewelry box while I get ready. And this week he started mimicking what I do. Like if I splash my hands in the water during bath time, he will do it too. It is soo cute. And the best news is that everything from his surgery went well! He has healed up nicely.

My attempt at photography.

I have tried twice to get some bluebonnet pictures. Call is not a big fan of sitting in the grass, even on a blanket. I could not get him to smile or look at me to say the least. In this picture he is really watching a runner behind me!

This face shows what he really thinks about this photo op!

The best shot I good get from the fellow.

Playing in his walker from his Grandpa Gary.

Showing his teeth! He has three now. They are all on the bottom. He is scaling the furniture and trying to get from one toy to the next, while standing on his feet, without falling down. He is very fast on his knees too. If you look away for one second, he is gone! We love this little guy soo much. What a joy he is in our lives!

Birthday Parties

Two of our really good friends have April birthdays. Callie turned 1 and Elle turned 3. Here is Collier at the parties. We had a really fun time hanging out with our friends and celebrating their birthdays!!
Happy Birthday Elle!

Funny Faces

Collier has this funny face that he likes to make when he has congestion i.e.boogers in his nose! It is soo funny!! He scrunches up his nose and blows out of it. We think it is very funny, which makes him continue to do it. Here he is in action!!

We hope it makes you laugh or smile too!!

On March 27th, 2010, seven months after having little Collier, momma was finally able to run her first half marathon since finding out she was pregnant. The last 1/2 marathon I ran was right before I found out I was pregnant. My dear friend Mary Jane trained and ran the Zooma Half Marathon with me. The event was held out at the Hyatt Lost Pines resort in Bastrop. The place is beautiful!! But the race was a monster! It was so full of hills. We definitely underestimated the elevation chart, but we had fun and finished!

Post Half. We finished in 2:09.40.

At the finish line.

She was so proud of herself this was her first race ever!

I love that I have a friend who will run with me!!
