This is one of the few smiles I got from him this week. He is much better today, but boy has he been a handful this week. It's got to be those mean toofies! I am so ready for those stinkin' things to break through. They have put my little man through enough anguish!! This picture is from this afternoon...I had to tickle him to get him to laugh. We are now taking pictures with Daddy's camera, and I must say, I think I like it better than my camera!!
Can you say "Yabba Dabba Doo"!! Poor baby...I can't even find shoes for him because the fat pads on his feet are too big! Check out those red toes....I guess it's from all of that jumpin'! He kills me how he just jumps away...on his toes! Maybe his new love for jumpin' will slim those chunkey legs down a bit!
We are getting really tired of our boring toys....the ones that don't bounce. Case in point...the Bumbo seat. He's not a big fan anymore. This is what he does now when you put him in it. Can we say he has just a little bit of Hinton in him?!!

No pictures today...you guessed it, my camera died. Oh well, I'll just have to use Joe's until I can scrape up some extra money to buy the one I want! Sweet Lexi girl did wonderful in surgery. Dr. Wellons had already prepared Jay and Amy (her parents) that she may have some motor deficits on her left side after surgery as a result of him "being more aggressive" with removing the tumor this time. Well, she showed him! After she woke from surgery she was moving BOTH arms and legs, and asking for her mommy!! She is still in the PICU tonight, but should get moved to a regular room tomorrow. Oh...the best news of all...her repeat MRI this AM showed NO EVIDENCE of the tumor!!! Yeah for Lexi! For those of you who kept her in your thoughts and prayers....THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!! God is so good and He works in wonderful ways! Thanks again!

As most of you know, my little cousin Lexi was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor in December 2006. At that time, she had surgery to remove the tumor. Since then, she has been getting repeat MRIs to track and see if the tumor is going to grow back. Unfortunately, it did. She will be having brain surgery again at 7:00 tomorrow morning at Children's Hospital. Please remember this sweet angel in your thoughts and prayers for the next few days....our family really needs it. She is the sweetest, most precious child and it kills me to watch her go through this. I am confident that God will take care of this sweet baby and her family!
We went to Rachel's and did some swimming to wear him out for the ride home yesterday. This was him when we got in the car.....it last for ummm maybe 15 minutes. That was definitely the car ride from hell...4 1/2 hours of fussing. He slept for maybe 2 out of the 4 hours. The rest was crying. I made mother stop and let me buy some Benedryl....that didn't work either. We will not be making any more long trips with this little monster for a while! And to make matters worse, he's been like this since Friday. If we don't get those stinkin' toofies soon, mommy is going to pull her hair out....I mean it!!
Trevor did not make it to dinner Saturday night, because he wore himself out at the pool, and then REFUSED to take a nap before we went to dinner. So he got to stay at the house with Mi Mi and sleep. Brady Cole did not mind being the center of attention, though. He was so entertaining. I got a really good picture of me and Rachel, but of course you can't even see us because it's so dark (sorry Rachel :( )
These are a few of the pictures I took on the beach. There were not much to choose from all of the dark pictures I got. I thought I had some cute ones of Brady Cole and Rachel, but they're so dark, you can't make out what's in the picture. This little man DID NOT care for the beach AT ALL. I did catch a few smiles here and there. The pictures that he is smiling in, he is butt-naked. Him said it was too dang hot on that beach!!

My friend Missy let me borrow this thing that she used for her little boy in the bath. I wanted to wait until he could somewhat hold himself up before we used it, so it is definitely time! He had a blast! I just love that lil' sweet smile he flashes when he gets excited! Oh, and he's definitely found his man part...he's going to pull it right off one of these days!
Yesterday, Hunter and Kelley came by to visit. Bless their hearts, they were so tired in these pictures. The last time Trevor visited with Hunter, he was kinda shy. But not today. Poor Hunter probably got tired of hearing him jabber. They were both about to fall asleep in these pictures, and they did as soon as we put the cameras up!

This past Friday, we had our Mullet Party at Chris Jolliffe's house. I have to say, it was one of the funniest things I've ever seen. Some of us really went all out. Notice the NASCAR cake, compliments of Scott Russell. Notice my friend Michelle who came barefoot and pregnant. It was a hoot! I also remember why I don't party anymore!!!!
