Wow...I'm so behind...this could be long!

Here's our little man just being himself...the life of the party! This was an old lampshade that I was going to throw away, but why do that before you can get the best use out of it?!?

Charlie's really been into the movie Toy Story lately, so I guess he's got cowboys on the mind. Doesn't he make a cute one? (Hat, Boots, and Horse courtesy of Pawpaw and Gran)

Oh, and if you didn't know, cowboys also make very good gymnasts. My cowboy can stand on his head!! (Yeah, just check out that belly in the background!! Huge!)

Who needs pants out on the open range?

Charlie and I discovered a new game to play in his room...

Which one's Charlie?!?

This is how I happened upon my little guy the other day...doing the itsy bitsy spider in momma's laundry basket!

Charlie loves to take his socks off and check between each of his toes for a "piece" (of toe jam or sock fuzz)!! The only thing is, his toes are so ticklish, he can hardly stand to do it!

Here, he decided to try on Daddy's shoes and socks. He's got a way to go before he can fill those shoes!

Charlie has also become a little apple lover lately. Here, I'd given him a red one that he decided he didn't like (I tried it because it was smaller) so I gave him a "pink" one. Then he decided that he wanted them both! I really wouldn't mind this at all except that after a couple of bites, he usually decides he just wants to chew a bite up for a while and then spit it out in momma's hand...gross!

Charlie's grandparents got him a computer. He loves it! He can identify most of his letters in one game, tell which item is the biggest in another, and then another favorite is one where he gets the monkey on the screen to play some music! He works really hard and then just dances and smiles!!

Charlie is getting to be such a big boy! He is getting really good with a fork. Here, he's using one of his own, but most of the time, he asks for momma's, meaning he wants to use a big metal fork like I do. He still does pretty well with that too.

This has been classic Charlie for a while now. Every now and then, he decides he's tired of using his hands or a utensil to eat with and he will just go for it with his face. We call him our little puppy! Here, he dropped a raisin on the ground and decided to eat it up instead of picking it up! Who knows?!?

I hope that is a good update! I'll try not to wait as long between posts from now on...although with Piper so close, you may have to cut me some slack! We'll be sure to post quickly when she arrives though so you can share in our joy! I'll see if I can't get at least one or two more in before she gets here so you can see her nursery and maybe some pics of a shower the ladies at church gave me.


Please Pray for "Pawpaw" (Stephen's Dad)- he was just diagnosed with inoperable lymphoma. He will begin treatment soon. So far he and Gran (Stephen's Mom) are positive (as are the doctors) that the tumor will respond favorably to chemo.

I love each picture and explanation! He is one of the CUTEST cowboys! (my cowboys usually didn't even wear a diaper!!)
He looks so big sitting at the table with his computer.

I love the cowboy boots and I love the lamp shade!! Micaiah will cry for an hr when I bring him in! I loves to be outside!!

Fun! Ella has the same computer that her Nana and Papa gave her as well. He's adorable!!

Great pics and update! Praying for you as you get closer to your due date and for Stephen's parents as well as you and Stephen as you help support and encourage them! Love ya' and miss you!

Love your update! What computer is that? Matthew could use all the help he can get. He really isn't too interested in "academic" stuff. Colors, letters, and anything else he has to sit still to learn are not going well for us! I hope you are feeling well and looking forward to seeing pictures of Piper soon!

Your belly looks great, by the way!

HAHAHAHHA!!! Your little boy bends over and eats his food off the ground - that is hilarious!!! I think I would just die belly-laughing every time he did that. How cute. He's also quite the flexible little fellow. Thanks for the cute pictures!
