Christmas with Little Man

Ok, Momma and Daddy.  I'm finally ready to open presents.
My gift to Brady first.
It was a bone...he ate it in about 5 seconds.  I guess that means he liked my gift.
Love my teething teddy from Santa.
Daddy, will you help me unwrap this one?
I wonder how it tastes.
I really like this paper.
Hmmm...SOOOO good!
Hey!  I want that back!

I guess I'll check out the toy.
Oh yeah, I like this too!  Thank you Pamela, Tony, Hayden, and Ana!

I'm not too good at this

Well, once again it's been FOREVER since I've posted anything!  We've been keeping busy with teaching/coaching (Hubby), cakes (me), but mostly just sharing in the amazement at how quickly Little Man is changing and learning.  Eating is one of his favorite activities and he does plenty of it!  We're looking forward to his next doctor's appointment on Friday to see just how much he has grown over the last two months.  He can now grab his rattle with either hand or grab a small stuffed animal with both!  He loves to "jump" (really it's more of an arm workout for Hubby and me) or bounce in his jumperoo.  We're pretty sure he's 110% boy and is going to full of energy for many years to come.  He's already as non-stop as he can be at his age.  Here are some of our favorite pictures from the last few weeks.
Little Man with his great-great-grandmother (Gronnie) on Thanksgiving.
FIVE generations!  Now that is something special!
Santa baby!
We don't think he was too impressed with his first snowfall.  (This snow was not in Newport News.  We were in Vienna with Hubby's parents for the weekend.)
Nakie tummy time!
Fresh and clean little boy.  He still loves bathtime!
Lately Little Man has been going to town in his jumperoo.  He wore himself out on this particular occasion.  After a 5 minute cat nap, he was ready to go again.

Sorry for the delay!

October has been a very busy month for our family! Columbus day weekend we went to Charlottesville for a family reunion with Hubby's family. Little Man met the family--including his cousin who is only four months older!

From Charlottesville, Little Man, Brady, and I went on to my Blacksburg for a few days. Little Man had a great time hanging out with Granddaddy and Oma. Pete and Brady enjoyed their time together too!

Last weekend we went to Vienna and Gettysburg for the first time since Little Man was born. In my typical fashion, I forgot to take my camera! Little Man met his Great-great-grandmother!!!

For Halloween weekend we visited with my college xc coach who has a house out near Lexington. Saturday we went on to Blacksburg. Little Man got to see his PopPop for the 2nd time. He wore his pumpkin outfit out and about in the neighborhood to meet some of the families I used to baby-sit for.

I also kept quite busy with cake orders. To see some of the better ones, check out my cake blog at!

Now that it is November, we are happy to take it easy and stay home until Thanksgiving!
