10 Months Old

Hadley is 10 months old!  At 10 months, Hadley is full of fun!  She is as busy as ever, and never seems to slow down.  This month she has really started to try communicating verbally.  She says "Uh Oh", "Dada", "Mama", and "Hi" regularly.  She can also say, "No" and "Bye bye" but doesn't very often. 
   Hadley can stand on her own but no walking yet.  She has been working on her climbing skills, and loves to climb onto the dishwasher, treadmill, and on the bottom shelf of my dining room buffet table.  She has also discovered the joy of opening (and emptying) just about every cabinet and drawer in our house.  Cabinet locks are being added daily.  :)  Hadley LOVES to dance.  When she hears music, she stops whatever she is doing to give a little dance. It is precious!  She knows the hand motions for pat-a-cake, peek-a-boo, and "So Big!".  She is growing so fast!
  Hadley is almost completely on finger foods.  I try to slip a little baby food in every now and then, but she much prefers to feed herself.   She still has 4 teeth.






 






 
She loves to play in the water table. I have a feeling we are going to have alot of water fun this summer!

Here are a few videos for fun!

Valentine's Day

We had a fun Valentine's Day this year!  Chad and I enjoyed a fun kid free dinner out with friends! Cooper loved making Valentines for his friends at school (and receiving them too!). The kids also got a few special treats at home.  Cooper and I were able to enjoy a special mommy/son date night while Hadley and Daddy spent some quality time at home.
 

 
 

 
Ready for our date night!  He wanted to go to Casa Ole and then to get a candy apple.  He talked the entire night.  Loved our special time!
 
So thankful for all 3 of my Valentines!

Flashback to Football Season


I know this is a little late, but I felt like I need to document our love for Aggie football this season!  Well, I mean, we always love Aggie football, but this year we actually won!  This football season was full of lots of tailgating and celebrating.  The kids and I watched most games from home, but we still got in on some of the Aggie action!
Here is Cooper practicing his Heisman pose!
The Johnny Football brownies I attempted to make for the Heisman watch party we went to.  Seriously, it was like the Superbowl around here! HA!
 


Our Sunday School class "Marooned Out" after the Alabama win.  Our pastor is a big Alabama fan, so we all marooned out on Sunday morning just to torment him.  :)


Cooper stayed up to watch part of the Cotton bowl with me.  "Touchdown!"
 
 
What a fun season!  Gig'em!

Ft. Worth Stock Show.... and a few random pics


 


While we were in DFW, we took some time to go to the Ft. Worth Stock Show.  Chad and I have gone every year since before the kids were born.  Unfortunately, we were there on the last day and most of the animals were already gone.
My little cowboy and cowgirl ready to go!
Cooper loved "driving the hunting truck most of all.

Little Miss loved watching all the animals.  She really loved the roosters until they "cock-a doodle-dooed".  Then that was the end of that! Ha!
 

 
There was a sheep herding competition going on.  Cooper was so interested.  I have to admit I found it pretty entertaining myself.
A Couple of  Random Pics...
 
 

 Hadley's favorite place to play is in the bottom of our pantry.  She just laughs and laughs and thinks she is really rebellious.  Ha!
 
 

A couple of weeks ago, Chad and I went to the Cattle Baron's Ball!  It was such a neat event!  Can't wait to go back next year!

Happy 1st Birthday Marlie!


This weekend we headed to DFW to celebrate our sweet niece, Marlie's, first birthday! She had a sweet shop party, which was the perfect theme because she is just the sweetest little girl.  

The birthday girl!

Madie and Cooper were MORE than willing to help Marlie open her presents.



Everything was so precious and perfect.  Marlie is one lucky girl to have such great parents!  
 
 

The candy bar.  I'm not sure how many times Cooper visited this table, but I'm pretty sure I don't want to know.  Let's just say he was in heaven. 

The food table.  Mike made his awesome sliders! 


Look at that precious smash cake.
Marlie thought it was fabulous too!



Hadley thought this party was great!  She was one happy girl!  Let's hope she feels the same way when it's her turn... but we aren't going to talk about that.


HAPPY 1 YEAR MARLIE!
