Favorite New Toy

I saw one of these cute little cars in Destin this past summer, and had to get my little man one. He loves it! He keeps his hands on the steering wheel like he is driving and talks the whole time you push him!

Such a happy man in his car!

The Grove

Well, I really did not pack well when we went over for the game. I only took suede shoes... go figure. And the grove was so so so muddy, and it misted all day. Not to mention it was FREEZING and neither me or Thornton took a coat!

So what did we do? Wore jeans, tennis shoes, and went to the bookstore
for sweatshirts! That is honestly the most comfortable
I have ever been in the Grove!

Weekend in Oxford

Thornton and I took Leyton over to the Ole Miss vs Alabama game a couple of weeks ago. We were giving an engagement party for Sparky and Jenny Kate in Oxford on Friday night, so we made a weekend of it! I took off work on Friday and headed over to Oxford with Leyton that morning. Jason and Karem came and brought Thomas, and we also got to Eric and Shea and Grafton. Also, Pfeifer came in town for the game from New York, so we got to see everyone!!! The grove ended up being really nasty and cold after all the rain we have had, so Mr. Leyton did not have the best grove experience. We will try again though!

So happy!

Playing with Thomas after breakfast. I didnt have my camera
when Grafton came by, but I will hopefully get
to see them again soon!

We had such a good time!

10 Months

Well, another month has passed by! My baby is 10 months old today. I don't have a ton to report over the last month. Teething has definitely kicked up a notch over the last few weeks. We are cutting 4 teeth right now. I don't have another child for comparison, but everyone tells me that this teething business can get pretty rough at times. I have to say this little boy has not missed a beat during teething, so far! He has been his normal, happy and busy little self. The only way that I can tell he is cutting a tooth is the constant knawing on EVERYTHING and the tons and tons of drool!!! It has not effected his sleeping or eating, so far so good!!

I have a feeling we will not be eating baby food much longer. He is at the stage where he wants to feed himself. He LOVES the Gerber puffs!! He is great at feeding himself with those. And now, when I am feeding him baby food, he tries to grab the spoon and put it in his mouth himself. So, I guess I will have to get better about cooking dinner here soon!!!

Leyton is so so so busy these days! He does not want to be held much. He wants to go go go ALL the time! He literally tries to jump out of my arms at times. I must say that I am surprised we dont have brain damage. I am so glad their little heads are so hard! He somehow got out of his stroller the other day and landed on the ground. We were shopping and I turned my back for 2 seconds and then I heard him crying and he is on the floor!! Of course, I started crying thinking the worst, but he was back happy a minute later. He hits his head on everything, and has even slipped and landed face first on the hardwood floors many times. His little lip was swollen the last time he slipped!

Other than pulling up and "cruising" around his toys, I guess that is really all that I have to report this month. He still "talks" a ton too!! We are taking him to the Grove for the first time this weekend to cheer on the Rebels against Alabama, so I am sure we will have tons of pics to post when we get home. And Halloween is just around the corner! He is going to be a little lion cub and I cant wait!!!

Ready for Halloween with our pumpkin pjs!!!

Whenever he sees me with the camera, he immediately
starts grinning and crawling toward me!
I hardly have time to take a picture!!

He loves to look through his books
