Draft Weekend

Thomas is 6 months old now and still has his blue eyes! He had his 6 month dr. apt. on Friday and all went well. He is 28inches long and weighs about 18lbs, which puts him in the 95th percentile for height and 60th for weight! He has two teeth coming in, right now they are bumps on his lower gums.

We enjoyed Draft weekend as a family...watching each and every pick. Mr. Irrelevant was a S.C. player...GO GAMECOCKS!

Pete did some "spring cleaning" while we were watching the draft!

Thomas LOVED it!

He is still working on sitting up. He does a very good job for short amounts of time.

This was by far his messiest meal yet!

He loves to grab his hair now and at meal time that just makes a mess. He also likes to blow "razberries" and spit food all over mom.

He is just super cute!

Muncie Childrens Museum

Thomas has had an exciting week! He turned 6 months old on Tuesday and Wednesday we went to the Muncie Children's Museum with Ginger and her girls Riley and Parker. Thomas had fun strolling around!

The girls made "sand art" at the end of the day.

Flower Face Riley!

Hanging With the Guys!

One of Tommy's college roommates, Steve, came into town on Monday. Steve and Pete played with Thomas most of the day and he LOVED it! They read books to him...together and just played played played!

Apparently Thomas likes Nerds.

Steve and Thomas.
Thomas is very very close to sitting up on his own. He can do it for a little while before he...

falls over!

Thomas had just woken up from his nap and Mable was super excited to see him so she was following very closely!

Pete giving Mable bunny ears.

Pete was busy teaching Thomas how to "creep". Again he can do it for a little while and then he...

falls! Good catch Pete!

Thomas is wearing a onesie with Steve's picture on it.
We had a great time with Steve and Pete! Thomas loved having people other than mom and dad to play with.

Playing with Dad

Thomas had fun watching all the funny faces Dad was making!

We had a beautiful Saturday and went for several walks in the BOB!

It finally feels like spring around here and we are noticing more and more the signs from Mother Earth. The trees we planted last fall are starting to get leaves and even bloom. The above picture is from one of our maples.

Our Virgin Mary statue had a rough winter. High winds, snow and sleet all took a toll but she still looks as beautiful as ever!

Mable thinks so too!

These are of our Japanese Plum tree which is in the front yard. Beautiful purple leaves and tiny white flowers!

We hope your Saturday is as beautiful as ours has been.

Hoppy Easter!

Thomas really is a "Chick Magnet"...people stop us all the time to say how cute he is! Of course when they find out how old he is they have a look of shock on their faces...apparently he is big for his age...who knew!

Here he looks like he is mad he has to eat that carrot but really he LOVES them! He has had them twice this week and finished EVERY bit!
