Westin's 10 Month Football Picture

 Westin turned 10 months yesterday, and  this has been a month full of changes.  He is now about to crawl anywhere in the house very quickly.  He has gotten his first tooth, tries to copy most sounds that we make, pulls up on any and everything, and actually plays in William's room with him.  I appreciate how tolerant William is of Westin.  He already watches out for him and protects him where ever he is.  Westin is still a great eater and sleeper.  As long as he has food he is pretty much good to go.  He has always been such a cuddly little boy.  When I put him down to sleep at night I hand him his soft lovie and he wraps it in his arms to go to sleep.

July 2011

 Shay and Westin observing.
 Westin has become mobile this month.  He is now able to travel around the house very quickly. 
 At Landa Park
 Westin stood up in the pantry today and was able to get his puffs.  He is well on his way to independence:)
Westin playing "drop and pick-up" with Mommy. He got his first tooth last week. 
William adding water to the hole he has dug in the backyard.  There obviously isn't much to do in our small rental yard. It sure is easy to maintain though.  
 Westin trying his new baby biscuit. 
 Holding on to his baby walker with just one hand.  He is getting a little closer to walking. 
Who me?  Westin surprised William as he crawled into the bathroom the other evening.

House Update July 2011

 Stucco is almost done.
 I really haven't changed many things in the house from the original plan...with the exception of the tub.  The one I had designed on the plan was a little too boring.  Beau and I came up with this design, and I really like the way it turned out. 
 Plumbing, electrical and gas lines have all been installed.  This is a picture of the boy's bathtub.
 Top floor is painted and complete. 
 Shingles are almost completed installed.

4th of July

 We had a great July 4th weekend. We spent one whole day furniture and ceiling fan shopping with the kids. They held up for the first few hours but, by the last store they were done!  We also went swimming one evening and I took these pics of the boys.  William and I also went to watch Cars 2 and William loved it.  After the movie he asked my how long it was until Christmas because he thinks he needs to get a couple of the new cars. I have accepted the fact that the popularity of Cars is never going to die down around our house.

Summer Outings

 William, Westin and I met Janice and Sunshine at "The Island" in New Braunfels yesterday. 
 There is unlimited amount of space, rocks and water.  What more could a little boy need. 
 Janice, Westin and Sunshine enjoying a picnic lunch. 
 Simon, Zachary, William and Annabelle
 William loved hanging out with the big kids. 
 Westin - 9 Months Old

Annabell was so helpful.  She let William drag her all over the river park.  She is such a nice young lady.

Patient Boys

 I am so excited that these two are starting to play together.  I am hopeful that they will grow-up to be the best of friends.
 Westin has been drug all over the place picking out stuff for our house.  He spent a whole day in San Antonio picking out counter tops and all the tile for our house.  He is very laid back ;) 
These two are troopers.  Here we are on one of our daily trips to our house.  We are so blessed two have two boys that, for the most part, go with the flow. 

Westin - 9 Month Football Picture

 Westin is now 9 months old.  If you look closely in this picture you can see that he is starting to get some curls on the back of his hair. He is now able to crawl on all fours, give kisses, pull-up on the couch and his bed.  He is still a good sleeper and eater. 
 Whoo-hoo... we are finally done with these pictures!
Westin started pulling up on his bed this week.
