My baby is now almost 10 months old and that just blows me away. He is crawling everywhere and when I sit him down he will not stay there! He loves to follow Cooper to the playroom and wherever he goes. I will sit him in the living room with some toys and go do the dishes, then I hear a squeal and he is coming around the corner into the kitchen just smiling so big at me!! He is so precious and I am very thankful to have such a sweet boy. Here is a pic of him on our slide in the backyard. Enjoy!

I never thought that I would have a child that would be into Nascar, but of course I do now!! Cooper is very into Nascar these days and loves to watch the races on TV. He knows a ton of the drivers and we have a ton of their cars. He knows what company sponsors the car and everything! So driving down the road today we saw a real race car sitting in the grass in front of a store so I pulled over and took his pic with the car. He wanted to get in and drive it! So here is my big guy by the race car!

Disney on Ice

On Saturday we woke up about 5:30 to get ready so we could wake Cooper up and tell him about the surprise that Nini and Momma had for him. He woke up early on his own and was just so excited to find out where we were going. We told him that we were going to go on a trip to Nashville to see Lighting McQueen from Cars. He was jumping up and down and asking if he was going to get to talk to him! Then we go to get in the car and he trips in the driveway and starts bleeding on his leg. He then does NOT want a bandaid and is very upset, so I say, maybe we could show Lighting your cool nascar bandaid! So he was fine! We got there and walked around and got to see all the tons of stuff they were selling. He got a Cars pennant to hang in his playroom. He also got to stand with Lighting with the Piston Cup championship in the backround to get his picture made. It is now in his room!!!! He had a ball. Mickey and Minnie Mouse were the host and hostess and when they came out he just started yelling at them and waving for about 5 minutes! It was worth the drive to see the excitement in his face when Mator, Sally, Flo, Ramone, and Lighting came out onto the ice! What a great time we had. Here are a few pics...
