Baby is napping...maybe only for a minute, so I'll have to post really quick!
We turned 5 months last Saturday and have had lots of firsts. I'd like to eat before he wakes up too, so this is short!
First cool weather meant wearing our first jacket!
So chubby!
First Cowboys game with Dad!

My 10 year high school reunion!
First trip to the zoo!

First high chair! We have outgrown the infant carrier and moved into a bigger car seat. It makes things a bit difficult b/c we can't sit in the infant seat in the grocery store or in a restaurant, but we still have trouble sitting up. We are going to have to learn quick!

Reading before bed with Dad. Get a look at those fat legs... yes, we feed him cream.

Will's 4 month photos

So in a week Will is going to be 5 months! I love that he's getting older, but suspect that I will miss this time someday. Anyway, here are his pics from this month. I just love these, they are my favorite so far!

I had never heard of it. Apparently Will has the Roseola Virus. So we missed our third Sunday of church in a row (not all b/c of the virus) and are continuing to be shut ins since it's supposed to be highly contagious. The poor little guy has been running fevers, very fussy, and is covered in red spots from the tips of his tiny toes to his "man-child" combover. Having a sick baby is exhausting! My respect for all moms I know (mine especially!) grows immensely each day. We are up all night, nursing more frequently, and just not content to sit by ourselves right now. Praise to God that he finally just went down for a nap. Hopefully it will be a good and long one- for him and me!

I'm really praying that this clears up by Friday. We are supposed to be going to my 10 year high school reunion this weekend in Abilene, but if he's not better we'll have cancel.

So if anyone out there is wondering... I'm still alive.

Lifegroup Swim Party

This post is about a week overdue, but better late than never?

So our church has been in the process of a sort of "lifegroup shuffle" as I like to call it. We are sadly seeing some members of our group go to other groups, but excitedly welcoming new friends as well. We had a little kick off party about a week ago at the Tigner's. It was a lot of fun and I'm really eager to get to know this new group better. Here are some pictures from the day.
Steven grilling- I was just saying that there are two things I always want someone else's husband to be in charge of: 1)Grilling and 2) Driving in Mexico

My mini-hamburger cupcakes! Aren't they the cutest!! I got the idea from this website. They were so easy and REALLY good!
