Random...

So...sorry for the lack of posts lately!  We haven't been up to a whole lot lately.  Our summer was great and we went on so many fun vacations!  But it has been kind of nice to just be at home and do what we do I guess you could say.  These are just some cute pictures of Boston I have taken lately.  I know basically every post is about him, but he is our life and he makes us laugh everyday and he brings so much joy to our family.  So I can't help but share that joy and laughter with all of you!

One day he woke up in the middle of his nap and was still tired, but he didn't want to be in his crib, and he didn't want me to hold him either.  So I layed him on the couch and he rolled over to this position and slept like this on the edge of the couch for 2 hours!  I was laughing, it was so dang cute!

Last week, Ryan's dad took him and his brothers to a NY Yankees game so we got to spend the weekend with my parents and Ryan's mom.  We had a blast!  On Saturday it was raining so hard!  So I took Boston outside and let him run around in the rain.  I thought he would like it more than he did, but it was cute.

And I saw these cute little footprints, and couldn't help but take a picture!

Cute moment with grandpa and little Boo!

We went to the treehouse on Wednesday with the babies and Boston and Ian were wearing the same shirt.  It was cute!  Don't they look so big?

I can't believe I haven't posted anything about Boston walking!  He walks like a champ!  At first he kind of waddled like a penguin, and he still waddles a little bit, but is very steady.  So here is a little video of him walking.  Enjoy!

Favorite things for my baby tag!


I was tagged by Amy to tell my favorite things that I can't live without for Boston.  Here they are...

1.  Onesie Church shirts.  When Boston was born, I found church shirts that were onesies at Walmart.com and I love them!  Since they are onesies, they always stay tucked in and they just look sharp.  But I haven't been able to find them for older sizes.  If anyone knows of any let me know!

2.  When I was still breast feeding, I couldn't live without my nursing cover.  It was hard for me to manage keeping the blanket up and not let it fall down or let Boston pull it off.  I wasn't about to pay $30 for one cause I'm cheap so I made one for like 5 bucks!

3.  Also when he was younger, we had a toy zebra that hung from his car seat and when you pulled it down it would vibrate.  That helped a ton when he was crying in his car seat!

4.  His friends.  Boston has learned so much from his other baby friends.  I'm so glad we get together every week because Boston loves them!  

5.  His hooded towel.  I love that it keeps his head warm and I can just wrap him up and snuggle him right after his bath!

6.  A car mirror.  I love to be able to see him while I am driving.  And when he use to cry really hard in his car seat, I liked to be able to see that he wasn't turning blue or anything.

7.  Gerber sippy cup.  My friends told me in the beginning, don't get any other sippy cup.  This one works the best.  But me, being the cheapo, tried all the other cheaper ones first, and he hated them!  It was just hard for him to suck on them.  So I gave in and got the Gerber one and have loved it.  If I would have listened in the first place, I would have actually saved money!  Oops!  You can get them at Walmart.

8.  Mervyns.  Mervyns has been the only store that actually has quite a bit of boy clothes that are really cute and decently priced...that I have found anyways.  I'm so sick of walking into a store that is all girl stuff and way back in the back corner is a little shelf of boy stuff.  It's really frustrating and just makes me want a girl really bad!

9.  Parent's Choice bottles.  These bottles are inexpensive at Walmart and don't have BPA so I don't have to worry about whether or not I am poisoning my child!

10.  My husband!  I would not be able to raise Boston by myself.  Ryan  is the best dad in the world and without him, we would be nothing!  When I worry so much about everything, he is always there to remind me to relax and just live a little.  Thanks honey!  I love you!

Now I tag...Hilary Cook, Kaylee, Shauna and Lindsey!

TAG!


I was tagged by Ally to tell 6 facts about myself...here they are...


1.  There are 2 people in my life that I am absolutely IN LOVE with!  Bet you can't guess who they are!...yep!  Ryan and Boston!  I live my life for these two!  I could not ask for a better husband or son.  I love being a wife and I love being a mother!  I don't think there is any other job in the world that is as rewarding as being a mom.

2.  I like to cook.  Now if you ask my friends they might beg to differ.  I really do like to cook and especially bake, but I don't love to do dishes.  Neither does my husband.  And when you don't have a dishwasher, you tend to be more careful about what you cook...or don't cook so that you don't have as many dishes to do.  So maybe once I get into a kitchen that has more space and a dishwasher, Ryan will get more home cooked meals.

3.  I wrote a song for a piano solo.  I love music.  Not just listening to the radio and stuff, but more so playing the piano.  I also play the flute.  I grew up playing the piano my whole life and now that I don't have one in my home, I realize how much I really miss sitting down and playing the piano for hours just to relax.  And when I wrote the song, it kind of happened as a mistake.  I was just kind of messing around and realized what I was playing actually sounded really good!  Then a neighbor helped me get it all onto paper and now I can say I wrote a song!

4.  I hate scary movies!  Ever since I've been married, I can't watch them!  When I'm home alone especially at night, I always freak myself out with weird scenarios.  So if I watch scary movies, that just wouldn't help anything!

5.  I am addicted to chapstick and lotion.  Without them I go crazy!  When I was younger, I always said if I were stranded on an island and could only take two things with me, it would be chapstick and lotion!

6.  I just learned how to dive a couple months ago.  I know I know!  It kind of sounds pathetic, but when I was learning when I was young, I would always belly flop and it scared me to do it again.  Then I went swimming for one of our "girls days" and they made me be brave and try it.  I did it good!  And it's really not hard!  I was proud of myself!

Now I tag...Kathleen, Melanie Barber, Melanie Jones, and Melissa!

Boston's One Year Old Pictures!

I know these are a little bit late, but my dear friend Shauna took Boston's one year old pictures. She is starting a photography business and she is dang good at it! She is going to be starting a blog for her photography. For more information click here. There were so many to choose from but these are just a few of my favorites. Thanks Shauna!












Isn't my baby the most beautiful thing you've ever seen! :)

MEMORIES!

Well we haven't done anything extremely exciting lately so I don't have tons of pics to show, so I thought this would be a good time to do the memory post that everyone has already done.  I thought it was cute!

1.  As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together.  It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2.  Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you.  It's actually pretty funny to see the responses.  If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're laying the game and I'll come to you blog and leave one about you.  If you don't want to play on you blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.
