1st Trip to the Lake

We took Bryson to lake Texoma this weekend, ear plugs, ear headband and all! He was a little timid at first, but really seemed to enjoy himself. Here he is playing w/ daddy.....

Chillin' on the boat......

Attempt at a family photo....

The motion of the water/boat moving put him right to sleep! It was so nice!!

Hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day!

Nine Months

It's a challenge to get Bryson to sit still for these photos! He wants to be on the move, all the time!
* Bryson's bottom 2 teeth are in!
* He can crawl on all fours, pull to stand, sit down from standing and is just starting to 'cruise' around on furniture.
* His ears are STILL infected. The tubes are working really well though. We met with another ENT today and have a new course of treatment.
* He's wearing 6-12 month clothing and size 3 diapers.
* Bryson's eating more table foods and self-feeding more. He can drink from a sippy cup.
* He pulls up on his crib when he's ready for us to come get him up in the morning!
* He's still such a sweet boy- he's been babbling more and has made many 'friends' :)

My first Mothers Day

Today we celebrated my very first Mother's Day! It was even better than I could have imagined it to be.
As usual, Bryson was up around 6:30am.....Brandon took me out for a dinner date last night (its been so long since we've been to dinner, just the two of us), but we both really like this breakfast place in town- the Broken Egg. Bryson appeared to be in a good mood, so we threw on some hoodies and headed out.
We ran into a friend from high school's parents and they were just thrilled to meet Bryson. We had a great breakfast, but our waitress didn't appear to be in any rush to get us our check. Well, when we asked for it, we learned that her parents had paid for our meal!!! What a special Mother's day breakfast!!
We spent the rest of the day at church and visiting with my family, and then just hanging out at home. Brandon got Bryson's swing hung on the porch- and he LOVES it!
Bryson is cutting his 1st two bottom teeth this weekend. Overall, he's been pretty happy about it- but man, it sure hurts when he gums on us now!
He's still having some ear difficulties....we are going to see an infectious disease doctor soon. The cultures came back from the surgery (from his middle ear fluid) and he has an antibiotic resistant infection, which explains why his ears are still continually draining. This infectious disease doctor is supposed to help us get the right drugs to clear up the infection. I can't wait to have all these ear problems behind us!
So, that's whats new in our corner of the world! Hope you had a wonderful and blessed Mother's Day!
