Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year!

From our family to yours, we hope everyone had a great Christmas and a safe New Years!

This year we weren't able to go home due to Josh's work schedule, so we enjoyed opening up our gifts with family watching via Skype and FaceTime and then having friends over for a Christmas meal! We are truly blessed beyond measures with loving family and friends.

Josh and I had the luxury of going out for New Years while Grandma Dana took care of Christian!  She came to visit us before Josh deploys and stayed over New Years just so we could go out.  She even got up with him in the mornings so we could catch an extra hour or two of sleep! We had so much fun during her visit!  Did a little shopping, cooking, and playing at home with C.  Christian just loves her SO much!  He had a hard time saying goodbye today. :-( Here are a few pictures of Christmas at home and our New Years celebration at Catch 31!

We have a ONE YEAR old!

Yup...that's right...it's been a WHOLE year! We threw C a Little Man Mustache party and we all had a blast! Seriously can't believe he's one!  On his actual birthday we had a little smash cake session...which he loved of course.  This kid LOVES cake...he would have eaten the whole thing had I not have taken it away. Thank you to Etsy for all the wonderful party items! If you would like to see exactly where I most of the items you can click on the item list at the bottom of this posting and it will take you to that shop.  Enjoy!

Family Update!

Wow...it's been since February when I posted last!  haha  I could sit here and catch you up on everything, but instead I'm just going to post C's monthly pictures since his 3 month ones that I last posted.  Josh has started his work up cycle with the Navy as they prepare to deploy next year.  So lately it's just been me, Reagan (my sister in law is staying with us for the summer!!), and little Christian.  We're making the best of it and having fun....however fun is a whole new meaning when Josh is around!  He got home yesterday from being back and forth home and away for the last month and a half....and hopefully he's home for at least a month of so before leaving again.  I sure do love having my family together!!

Okay so here are C's pictures!!

4 months:

5 months: HAPPY EASTER!

6 months:

7 months:

8 months:

And as we approach 9 months on 8.8.11 Christian is army crawling, pulling himself up on EVERYTHING, climbing up steps, and at 8 months weighed in at 18.5 lbs!  He's discovering new things he can do everyday....his newest being clicking his tongue and smacking his lips.  Everyday I'm thankful for him and how much joy he brings us!

Twist on Waffles!

A few months ago my husband brought me waffles in bed!  Chocolate chip waffles at that!  THEY WERE SO YUMMY!  I asked how he made them....he said, "The muffin mix in the pantry."  Really?  Muffin mix?  So this last weekend it was my turn to try.  We had blueberry and chocolate chip mix in the pantry that I whipped them up and threw on the waffle iron.  Way fast, way easy, and WAY yummy!  Each of these packets made 3 waffles...so not very many, but for a home of 2 we don't need a whole bunch just to go to waste.  I highly suggest trying this people!

My sweet C, 3 whole months old! I can't believe it!  Here are his Navy Sailor Portraits!

Love that foot peeking out.

One of my faves!
 My other favorite! Love those sweet blue eyes!
 Within 5 mins of the last picture he looked like this! ;-) THOSE LIPS!

 I love to kiss those toes!
