He's 9 months!

So the Bean has hit the 9 month mark, and he is as active as ever.

When given a toy he tosses it to the side just so he can try to get it.
When he can't reach it he start
s crying. I tell everyone to wait and watch him. After a few minutes, he lifts himself on his hands and knees, and pushes himself forward, trying to reach his toy.
He usually ends up on his face screaming, but after the drama, he eventually wiggles his way to his toy.

As a mom, it's sometimes hard for me to watch, but then again seeing him actually start crawling, reaching, and then sit himself up with such pride is a great thing!


This year we spent Thanksgiving with my family. We were all very excited because my Grandparents were visiting from Alabama. It's been about four years since I've seen my Grandmother, and I can't even remember the last time I got to see my Grandpa.
I also had my Aunt & Uncle there, they recently moved here from Germany so it was nice to see them as well.

Here are some random pictures from the day.

All in all, I can say the day went just as I had hoped. I was surrounded by my loving family whom I don't see very often and the food was DELICIOUS! It was an amazing day! I have so much to be thankful for.

Turkey four 8!

This is our family at a Thanksgiving dinner hosted by our friends Joe & Ally.

We had such a good time!
As you can see, the Bean could care less about taking a picture, he's more interested in the pie I'm holding!
