Something was funny.

What? What did you say? You can’t believe it either? Well we’re in the same boat. Where has the time gone? Little dude is already 9 months!
He’s such a joy, loves sitting up, pulling to stand (with assistance), standing at his little activity table and scooting around. I’m not sure he’ll ever crawl because he seems to be very content with scooting and rolling. But, we’ll see. Standing up is a favorite of his these days. When he’s standing and Troy walks or runs around him, he cackles like crazy. Justin has a quiet voice but is making more and more noises.
We sign to him when he’s eating and we think he can sign “eat”.
Weight: 20 pounds 8 oz
Height: 28.5 inches
He’s such a joy!

From Hope Hull, back to Auburn, to Wetumpka back home and finally to Niceville. We had a very fun several days of Thanksgiving. A few pics to share.
Thanksgiving in Hope Hull:
Colt, Troy and Grandma.
Cousins. Justin (9 months), Troy (2), Addie (2 months), Colt (2), Ryder (10 months).
Grandpa with Troy and Colt.
Josh, Colt and Mary (with Addie). The second picture isn’t embarrassing in the least.
Of course, a picture with Justin and Troy
Troy and Colt went riding on the tractor with Grandpa!

Several weekends ago as Brian headed East to go to the Auburn/Georgia game, the boys and I headed to West Alabama. With a short stop in Montgomery to pick up KK, we were off! Everyone did fantastic going and coming.
The trip overall was great. I’m not the first person in the world to travel with two young children but if everyone else says that it’s a cinch, I’d really like to know their secret! Babies come with so much stuff and I was afraid of leaving something behind. This was the second time I went out of town with just the two boys but having my mom help was HUGE!
We loved going to see my grandmother (Mamama), she’s really great. But, she doesn’t normally have young children in her house. There are knick knacks everywhere. everywhere. everywhere. And those are off limits. Troy minds well but I know it was hard for him to keep his little paws off of things! My grandmother is teetering on 80 but is a spunky as ever!!! She LOVED having us stay with her.
KK played hard with Troy!
He was intrigued by the birdhouse
He loved running, playing on tractors and asking questions. Tons of land and lots of fun was to be had!
Aren’t these the cutest tiger appliques? Love them! Justin’s doesn’t fit anymore. I should have put his on a bigger shirt.
We saw our cousins. Eve loves Justin! Reagan and Troy were crazy about each other.
This “playhouse” is now a storage space for my grandmother’s things. Years ago, it was a playhouse for my mother when she was growing up. When my cousins and I were younger, we played house in this playhouse. Isn’t it adorable? I might have even taken a 5 gallon bucket, added a toilet seat and made a potty in that house. What? Did I just admit to that? Ha, ha.
Troy played with Cookie and loved that his name was Cookie. Last year he was so little!
