The grits bar at Sally Kate's birthday party...cutest and tastiest thing ever!

Mary was so kind to share the birthday spotlight with Sally Kate so she got to be first in line for the chicken minis!!

YUMMY birthday treats...

I love that the banner I made for SK FOUR years ago is still being put to good use!! :)

Mary's birthday dinner at Masa...after our AWWWW moment! ;) Haha!!!

Lunch at Angelo's

Camper crawling under the ropes and Collins watching every move he makes!! AHH!

Collinsy going in for a kiss!! 

Had to document the black eye...poor buddy!! Camp felt even worse than Collins did! :(

21 months

I can't believe that Collins is already 21 months! I'm losing track of how old he is...it's just going way too fast!

I'm glad I took these pictures on time this month because Collins now has a beautiful shiner under
 his left eye. He got in the way of Camp swinging a baseball bat...a foam baseball bat, but it still did some damage!! :(

Collins is growing and changing every day! He is saying so many new words! He'll try to have conversations with me and he sounds so serious!! He'll just babble and I have no idea what he's saying, but it's pretty cute. 

Collins is a BUSY BUSY child!!! He is constantly climbing and moving. You really cannot take your eyes off of him. I walked out of the room this morning and 5 seconds later I hear the kitchen faucet running...he is FAST!!!!  

Collins loves to read books...especially books about tractors. He asks to read them all day long. 

Collins's favorite word this month is NO. He squints his nose and says it so funny...I have a hard time keeping a straight face when he does it. 

His favorite foods are cheese, eggs, bananas, grapes, popcorn, and of course lalas! 

He loves for me to kiss his boo boos. 

He's into Mickey (doh doh) and Elmo (melmo) these days. He also likes Jake and the Neverland Pirates. Whenever he sees Jake he'll say "Yo Ho Ho!" ;) It's so cute!!

He's pretty much down to just one nap a day...he'll usually go down around 11 or so. He goes to bed at night around 8 and wakes up around 8 in the morning. 

He's wearing size 2T pants/shirts/longalls and size 5 diapers.

Happy 21 months, you sweet boy!!!


brother and sisters

The week before Christmas, Chandler and Trip were both in town so we made Bebe happy and took a sibling picture!! It's always so hard to get the three of us together at one time and it'll be even harder now that Trip has gotten his dream job as a harbor pilot in Texas. I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO proud of him, but the big sister in me is also so very sad that he won't be living two miles down the street anymore. :( 
We spent the first thirty minutes trying to prop the camera up and do the self timer, but thankfully Trip's friend Brian came to the rescue to snap a few pictures for us!! 

This pic is my absolute fave...

I'm so thankful for these two!!

Can't wait to come visit you where the cowboys live, Trip!! I've already found a sweet Hampton Inn in Lafayette!!
