Preston – 7 months

I’m doing Preston’s 7 month post a couple days early because he will be celebrating with his aunties and I’m sure I won’t find the time to do it then!

Our little {big} guy is 7 months old already!!

He is always on the go!

Mister busy man!!

IMG_8689

He has been so much fun to watch grow!

IMG_8919

He doesn’t crawl yet–but he is SO close! He actually moves backwards and then realizes he’s going the wrong direction and falls down.

He loves standing more than anything these days, with help, of course!!

He’s been eating baby food about 2-3 times a day.

He loves it so much!! His favorites are prunes, green beans, vegetable medley, apples and mango, banana and pear, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes!! We have been giving him table food as well. He had some eggs and french toast the other day. He also LOVES tomatoes.

He ate the whole tomato and then did the splits to celebrate!! πŸ˜›

He still only has the two teeth at the bottom. Which is a nice break for us! I think his amber teething necklace is working wonders though!! No more fussing teething baby!!

He is our crazy little boy that we love SO much!!!

He is 21 pounds and about 26 inches long. I think he’s starting to thin out since he’s always on the go!! He still loves playing in his jumperoo and playing his piano in front of the mirror!

He’s pretty good at riding in the cart while we shop….

…as long as I give him something fun to play with! lol

IMG_8600

He would rather I wear him though. That way he can sleep.

IMG_8606

He’s the little boy that stole both of our hearts!

IMG_8552

He is loved by so many people and we are so happy to love close to family again!

Labor Day weekend!

We had such a fun and LONG weekend!

image

We really enjoy our new home {and town} and everything it has to offer!

image

On Saturday morning we decided to skip the farmers market and go tailgating for the first football game of the season instead!

image

It was Preston’s first time tailgating!!! {8.30.2014}

image

After tailgating we headed to the Williamson Pumpkin Patch to pick up some sweet corn, veggies, and mums for the front porch! We did a little shopping and then headed to Pepperjax Grill for lunch. {philly steak sandwich…um…YUM!}

When we got back home we took a dip in our little blow up pool! …beverages included!

image

We relaxed the rest of the evening!

{..and i was able to enjoy looking at my boys in their bro tanks} πŸ™‚

image

On Sunday morning I slept in πŸ™‚ and chad cooked us frittatas for breakfast! They were delicious!

We made some homemade apple sauce in the crock pot with apple from Deal orchard.

image

image

It turned out awesome!!!

image

We walked to Walmart for some last minute canning supplies. We wanted to can our applesauce, homemade salsa, cucumbers, and sauerkraut!

image

It was about a 4 mile walk round trip… And it was SO hot out!! {80 degrees, full sun, no wind!}

..but we were able to see some new additions around our neighborhood!

image

When we got home, Chad got to work on making the rest of our goodies to can and freezing our sweet corn.

Preston took a nap.

…and I went to the Mall! πŸ˜›

We had bruchetta {with fresh tomatoes and basil from our garden} for dinner!

It was another great day in the books!

on Monday morning I got up with Preston and I let chad sleep in! I got the house cleaned and then we had cinnamon rolls for breakfast. We lounged around in the morning and eventually took a family nap! πŸ™‚

after our nap we decided to head to Brookside park for awhile.

image

It was SUCH a beautiful day!! 70’s and sunny.

image

Preston got to go on the swing for the first time!

image

He LOVED IT!!!!!

image

AND WE LOVED PUSHING HIM!!!

image

He went down the slide for the first time!

image

image

He was able to ride all the fun animals…

image

surprisingly he did a really good job of balancing on it!

image

but don’t worry, chad was right there to catch him when he started to tip!

image

He was able to watch his first baseball game with Dad!

image

Bentley even got a little lovin’!

image

Overall, the park was a blast!!

image

After the park we went to enjoy a little Foyo at Orange Leaf!!

image

we had such a fun filed day. When we got home we planted my mums for the front porch and continued to enjoy the nice weather.

image

..and then just relaxed in our jammies for the rest of the night!

image

It was an amazingly fun filled weekend!!!

I’ll leave you with one last cute photo of my Pumpkin!!!

Until next time… XOXO
