8 Month Party and Pics!

Before we jump into the party pics, I want to first say how excited I am for this weekend. Not for my birthday...but for the Susan G. Komen race. It's a celebration of life and we are all so thankful that Mom is healthy and feeling great. Melisa-Beth and I have raised over $2,000 for the cause this year and just hope that this brings hope to many families out there praying for a cure. When I look back on the past four years, I am thankful for how close my family has grown and how strong my faith has become. I can't say I'm thankful for the cancer, but I'm thankful for the gifts that have come from it. My Mom continues to help others that are struggling with cancer and I just know they appreciate her sweet heart so much. Love you Mom!

So, my baby turned 8 months on the 9th and this saddens me greatly! When I hold him he just seems SO big and I can't help but wish for him to stop growing. He is wearing 12-18 month clothes and weighs 21 pounds. I am proud of every roll and every dimple in his cheeks! He is a healthy growing boy and tall like his Daddy. :) He is crawling everywhere and trying SO hard to pull up on everything. He's bumped his head a couple times on different things, because he is a wild man! I get out the frozen peas and he just wants to eat them. :) hehe

Enjoy the pics of his party! It was themed around him crawling and it being everything was creepy and crawly!

One happy 8 month old!

Still only 2 teeth!

He loves to think he's a big boy!

Dirt cups with 'creepy crawlers'!!

Wanting every bite!

Well, ok....just a lick!

Not sure here...he got the why so upset?!?

Hehe...I love creating games that everyone has to play!! The person that got the most creepy crawlers out of the stew won! Mom won!

Eyes closed!
I guess I'll play!!

The object of this game was to sort the creepy crawlers in 30 seconds. Aunt Sis did it!
Good try Matthew!

One sleepy baby!
 Here are Collins' 8 month pics! :) It's getting harder each time. Mary....will you take pics with no charge?!? hehe

Talking to Momma.

The half smile that my Mom has! But, her half smile is more attractive than this!! hehe

There's that smile I love!

Collins, I'm sorry I blew this up.

Busy Body!

All over the place!

Momma, pick me up!!

Love those lashes!
