from those whose walk is blameless."

Hutton Vs Nap...Nap Wins this Time!!

Ever since Hutton started crawling and standing, nap times have become an intense battle!! He's SOOOOO tired, but the moment we head to his room and turn off the lights, the battle begins. He stiffens up and throws an absolute fit. When I put him in his crib, he pulls himself up and stands there just screaming!! I have no problem letting him cry it out because I used to do all the time and he finally learned how to put himself to sleep. However, the last few days, I gave in after about 10 minutes because the screaming is SOOOO loud AND he has an adnoid virus so I was a little bit more sympathetic.

However, today he woke up and was his normal self. He played all morning and roamed the house like a champ. He took a brief 30 minute nap around 11. Trust me, you cant get ANYTHING done in 30 minutes. So around 2:30 he starts to rub those eyes and get really grumpy. I prepared his bottle and got ready to put him down for his 3:00 nap. He drank his bottle and I put him down like I always do but he WAS NOT having it! He screamed and cried and fought as hard as he could. I let that go on for about 15 minutes and then my nerves couldn't take anymore. I went back and tried to rock him and he looked at me and just laughed. Oh brother! He knows how to play mama good now! So I put him back in his crib and walked out. After another 20 minutes or so of screaming, things got quiet. I went to my bedroom and checked the video monitor. He was still sitting up but extremely still. I got closer to the monitor to find that HE HAD FALLEN ASLEEP SITTING STRAIGHT UP with his head propped on the bumper!!!! I could not believe it! It was absolutely hysterical! Poor little guy fought hard, but lost the battle! I was able to capture some pictures! Love his little heart!

Here Comes Trouble!

Now that Hutton is on the move, I've really got my work cut out for me. I made another run to BabiesRUs yesterday to stock up on safety items! He is into EVERYTHING!! I feel like I'm saying no about 300 times a day! Haha! Needless to say, he looks so cute trying to maneuver his way around the house! He just bats those pretty eyelashes at me and I'm a goner! How will we ever discipline the little stinker?!? He's definitely getting a good workout in these days which means he's exhausted by the end of the day! Last night he went down willingly at 6:00pm and slept til 7:30!! I think I was just as exhausted as he was!

My Little Water Baby

Words can't describe how happy Hutton gets when he takes a bath! He LOVES to splash and play! Craig and I end up soaked after every bath! Just wanted everyone to see what his nightly bath looks like and how it fills us with so much joy!

Giggles for Nana

10 Months and ALMOST on the Move!

Well, again, I am in awe of how fast time flies when you have a little one. Hutton turned 10 months yesterday and I just can't believe it! Oh, and just let me tell you, he is a BIG 10 month old! He weighs 24lbs and is like 31"! I'm already having back issues!

I wish I could report that he's crawling, but he's just not. I'm still kind of okay with it because I know I won't be able to keep up, but at the same time, he's getting really frustrated and trying so hard to go somewhere!! I have a feeling this milestone is not far away. Yesterday he was finally on all fours and moving back and forth! Not only that, but when I went to get him from nap time, he was standing in his crib, chewing on the rail! Haha! He's definitely a biter! Teeth are coming in slowly. He has three and is working on the fourth!

The current law for front facing car seats is that a child must be 20lbs AND 1 year of age. Well, he hit the 20lb mark a LONG time ago so we've been waiting on his 1 year birthday. I have been so excited for this milestone because HE hates riding in his car seat which make road trips exhausting. So yesterday, I finally ordered his front facing car seat. I made that my status on Facebook and got nailed by 15 different people about how they are in the process of changing the law to 2 YEARS OLD!!! The differences in opinion of these people was quite entertaining, I must say. However, I couldn't believe that the day I bought the big boy seat, I also discover the possibility of this law change. I was so frustrated. Regardless of what they are working on, I've decided to flip him around any way. He's SOOO big that he's really uncomfortable in his current seat and I think it will be beneficial for ALL of us!

Just got back from a week in Pikeville! It was AWESOME! My mom and Annie were on Spring Break so we got a lot of quality time in! We are heading back in few weeks for Hillbilly Days. Haha! I gave Craig the choice of the resurrection of Jesus or Hillbilly Days and he chose the festival of mullets! Haha! Should be entertaining! Can't wait! Here are some more pictures!
