August = Busy

So August has become our busiest month. It's the month with tons of birthdays (and we might be adding 2 more if Dana's and Brooke's babies come early). We have my brother-in-law, my hubby, my grandmother, my dad and now my little guy! We also have baby showers this month on top of a friend's daughters birthday that we just celebrated last weekend. Needless to say, we are busy every weekend with something. I promise I will post some vaca pics as soon as I have a free moment. I just thought I would post and provide updates on the family. So both of my sister-in-laws are pregnant - due date of Sept. 6 and Sept. 18th. Now both SILs are on bedrest. They are both o.k. but this is precautionary. And both have their nurseries set if the babies do come early so they are in pretty good shape. I am busy planning Marshall's first birthday party - it seems so weird to say that. I'm excited but also I get a little sad thinking about it. It seems just like yesterday that he was just born. Time really does fly by!!! He is a big time crawler now into everything. We have blockers everywhere to keep him out of harm's way. The kitchen cabinets have been baby-proofed and we are working on other areas. His big thing is taking off the door stoppers throughout the house. So when he takes one off, I put it up and leave it off b/c that has become a never-ending battle. Earlier this week, he stood by himself not holding on to anything. He cruises along furniture so he may walk soon - we'll see. He loves playing with the dogs and they are both very good with him! He starts preschool/MDO later this month for 2 days a week at our Church, Hope Pres. He loves going to the nursery on Sunday mornings so I think he will love ti! He is such a joy to be around and so much fun. We feel very lucky to have such a great little boy!

A couple of pictures that were taken by my friend, Heather, for his birthday invitation.

His new face that he makes all of the time...

So he was tired of pictures and did not like the grass at all!
