Happy Birthday Baby (the big one)!

Yesterday was Kyle's 29th birthday. The first birthday we ever spent together was when he turned 15. I still remember agonizing over the tough decision of what to get him.  After 2 hours in Dillard's I finally decided on Eternity by Calvin Klein & a Nautica Shirt. I can still remember the faint smell of Eternity on his shirt after he got out of football practice and it still brings the same big smile to my face.

Kyle is not big on celebrating anything having to do with him so we ended just grabbing a burger and fries with some friends (one who was stuck here from Irene which we were secretly happy about because we only get to see her so often).  It was a fun casual night and no one sang happy birthday so he was happy. 

Happy Birthday Kyle!

9 Months Old...

It has been too long since I have posted but things have been exciting and hectic lately and so much has happened...

Last week marked Dallas' 9 month birthday.  She has now been out of my stomach as long as she was in it.  It's crazy to think about how little and helpless she was when she first came out. Today she is a completely fearless child full of laughter and loud screams of joy and excitement. I know I have said it before but this girl is all daddy. She is standing independently, took her first steps, doing her one legged peg leg crawl around the house at warp speed and if she can choke on it she is putting it in her mouth. She loves taking everything off the bookshelves and out of baskets. She loves to be "chased". Life is filled with laughter, hugs and kisses these days (and some of her very loud screams). 

Here is a photo summary of the last month...

Dallas' First Tooth! No picture for this one, she barely lets me see it but it's there.  We were worried she was going to be toothless forever!
