Business in the front, Party in the back....

Okay, so Leyton got his first haircut in December! I teared up watching it get cut, but it was seriously time. Leyton had been sporting a mullet for some time. I never could bring myself to cut it because I kept holding out thinking that his hair might start to curl in the back. Nope.... he has very straight hair. It got to the point that when anyone saw him, they would say, "Oh, business in the front, party in the back!" So, off to see Mrs. Judy we went. It only took like 3 or 4 snips, but he did so good and sat so still! And yes, I kept his hair from his first haircut!

He was playing with this toy in the waiting
area, and fell asleep!!! Everyone started laughing
so hard he woke up! It was so cute!!

He played with hair clips the whole time...


Leyton's First Birthday!!!!

I really cannot believe that my little boy turned 1 year old on December 8th!!! It seems like we were just in the hospital having him, but then again, I really cannot remember what life was like before we had him. We celebrated Leyton turning 1 with a family supper. All of our families came, along with Leyton's Godparents (DD, Lewis, Hunt & Gaines, and Brennan and Mary Grace). Mary Grace was sweet enough to take a ton of pictures of Leyton at his party, but I have not downloaded them to our computer yet, so I just have a few that I snapped along the way. Leyton had a great time, and he got so so so much stuff!!!

on him, but he would not leave
it on for long.

Leyton's mini cake just for him!

The big cake for everyone else

First Thanksgiving

Leyton had his first Thanksgiving this year! It sure was a great Thanksgiving. With the scare we had with Jason, and then getting the good news that he had an infection and not a brain tumor (we got the good news the night before Thanksgiving), made for a very thankful day!!! We had Thanksgiving lunch at my cousin Chris's house this year. We had so much good food! And Leyton had a great time!! He loved turkey and mashed potatoes. He also loved playing on Chris's pool table. He would chase the balls all over the table and throw them in the pockets.

We went over to Madge's house that night to have some snack food and visit with the Marleys. Minette and Bo came in town with their 3 girls. Leyton is about 2 months older than Reed, so they got to play and share food a little bit.

This is his first time in his forward facing car seat! He
likes it so much better!

Fall Leaves....

Okay... I know that I am WAY behind on posting, but life has sure been busy in this house since November! These are some pics of Leyton over at the Marleys house in November. They had beautiful leaves that had fallen off one of their trees, so we could not resist taking Leyton's pic in all the leaves. He had a blast playing in them!!
