Catching up Part 7 - The Rest of December

Here are the final pictures from December (with January and February still to come).

Owen and mommy napping on the couch...with Owen's arm around mommy :)

Happy birthday Sabrina!

Fischer's Christmas party at Parents' Day Out (he was sitting in a shorter chair...he's not THAT much smaller than everyone!)

This is Fischer's buddy, Aaron. They are in all classes together on Sunday, Tuesday, Wed, and Thurs! (we both attend First Baptist and send our boys to PDO at Faith Baptist)...everytime I tell Fischer we need to run "errands," he thinks he's going to "Aaron's" house :)


A picnic on a warm winter day.

Our sweet baby Owen.

First real bath (after belly button finally fell off)

Owen usually cries when he loses his paci (which is often!), but this one time I found him like this, just licking it instead :)

One of the few times I was dressed nice in the 4 weeks after Owen was born...we were visiting family at Dustin's cousin, Brian's house.

When my family was in town, Dustin and my dad replaced our old windows with nice, new ones...Fischer really wanted to help. He got his plastic tools and told us he was "workin' the windows" :)

This is what we call "scary clown"...Dustin made this mask back in high school, and Fischer likes to pretend to scare us with it.
Shaving with his new bath toy he got for Christmas...sometimes he and daddy shave together :)

The Dad Life

Hair Style

I have been growing out my hair, but now I am debating as to whether I want to continue or not. Please check the pictures to the right and vote on which you think is best for me. And if you were wondering what the pics are from, the short hair is from Christmas 2009, the medium is my engagement portrait, and long is my high school senior portrait. :)

Catching Up Part 6 - Nana, Papa, and Auntie

Here are some more pictures from when Nana, Papa, and Auntie came to visit the week of Fischer's birthday and Christmas:

Snuggle time with Auntie :)

Fantasy of Lights at the University:

More snuggle time :)

Christmas Eve:

Fischer was a pro at his scooter the first time we took it out into the alley!

Then he realized it was easier to just let Papa do the work :)

At Jump for Joy:

You do the Hokey Pokey...

Catching Up Part 5 - Fischer's 3 year Portraits

These are the portraits of my sweet boy when he turned 3. He is really into monster trucks, more than any other toy, so we included them in the pictures...

Sledding Videos

If we get enough snow here (which so far has happened only once a winter), we can go sledding at Dustin's parents' house. There are no real hills here, but they live on the frontage road of an overpass that has only 4 houses and a plant nursery on it, so there's no traffic. Here are this year's sledding videos:

Here's Daddy's run with Fischer...

And here's mommy's run...who do you think did better? :)

Here's Fischer's first attempt to sled by himself:

And very proud of himself afterwards:

Now his second attempt to sled by himself (better than the first)...followed by Daddy's run where he ended up in the street!
