Christmas!!

What a difference a year makes. It was a whole lot easier trying to get him to pose for this picture last year!!

FIRST BIRTHDAY!!!

Happy Birthday DJ!! I cannot believe that it has been (over) a year since DJ was born. Time really does fly and they really do grow up too fast. He has finally gotten confident in walking and is walking a lot more. He can say Dada, Mama, Papa, Hi There, and we are working on Nana!!
Playing with Brooklyn!!



Opening presents!!

Hey!! Give me that back!! (LOL!)
The Cake!!!

Hair Cut #2!

Well, we decided it was definitely time to get DJ's hair cut again. I can't believe this is hair cut #2 before he is even 12 months old!!

However, this time, he did not like it!!! He screamed the whole time.

But it does look a lot better!!

One Year Photos!!!

I took DJ to Olan Mills for his one year photos!








She also took a few Christmas pictures. I just had to get this one. He has really taken to screaming lately and this was just perfect!



Then I got a coupon for The Picture People, so I took him there! To me, the quality of the pictures is just so much better.

Walking Part Two!!

DJ is getting better at walking! He will still only walk to me or Damon. He has yet to take off on his own, but I know it won't be too long before he does! And he is so funny when he is walking. It is like it makes him so happy!

A Conversation with DJ!

DJ has finally started babbling a lot more. He still hasn't said any real words, but he is getting close! I just thought this was pretty cute. He is also starting to wave, but he won't really do it on command.

Santa 2008

DJ had his picture made with Santa at daycare. He wasn't screaming, but you could tell he wasn't happy!! What is it about Santa that is so scary to young children??

We have a walker!!

DJ is finally starting to take a few steps all by himself! This was his 2nd night of "practice" at walking. It won't be too much longer before he is off and running!!

11 Months!

I can't believe my baby is 11 months old!! Where has the time gone? In one short month, my baby will become a TODDLER!! Scary thought, huh? Can't you just see the messes that this kid is going to get himself into? And who could stay mad at him with faces like this??

Must have been a long day!

DJ must have had a long day at daycare! I was trying to get supper going so I put DJ in his highchair with some teddy grahams and shredded cheese. I noticed that he had gotten very quiet, and this is what I found! And of course, being the bad mommy that I am, I had to grab my camera first!!

First Haircut!!

Well, I finally broke down and got DJ's hair cut. We went to Great Clips. They were so good with him. They gave us a card that said "Baby's first haircut" with the date/age/etc. on it. They also taped one of his curls to the card. He did so good during the haircut. I was so proud of him. But he doesn't look like my baby anymore. He looks like a 2 year old!


Before:





During:




This is the only time he cried. She had to spray his hair with water to finish cutting it. And he did not like that at all!

DJ and the Puppies

DJ has become fascinated with the puppies lately. He laughs at them every time he sees them! We are keeping them separated for now, because DJ wants to lick them back!

10 Months!

Well, we made it to 10 months before a haircut is definitely necessary! What do you think? Damon gave me 2 weeks to get it cut!

Like Father, Like Son

Damon has always enjoyed working on cars. I think DJ might be following in his footsteps!!

Yes, I think there is something wrong with your car. Either in your seatbelts, or your horn. Yes, I think the problem is in the horn!

Let me just push this back into my shop and take a closer look at that horn!

Oatmeal Monster!!

I think I have created an oatmeal monster! The past two mornings, DJ and I have shared a bowl of oatmeal. I think it is safe to say that he loves it! He made a horrible mess, but it was so funny watching him do it!


video

And he is getting so much better with his sippy cup!

Crawling!!

I finally got a decent video of DJ crawling. I really need to get some tapes for the camcorder! He is getting quick now! And he is pulling up on everything so easily. I bet he will be walking within a month!

9 Months!

I can't believe that DJ is already 9 months old!!! He has grown up so much! He is crawling everywhere and getting very quick. He can pull up to standing on anything and is starting to cruise. Finally, he started babbling and is talking up quite a storm! He goes for his 9 months well check Friday and I can't wait to see how much he weighs and how tall he is now! Here are a few pictures to compare!
