If you're anything like me, you don't like posts that have NO pictures....so I will try my best to keep you entertained long enough to read my story!
Here goes nothing....
When I was a little girl, I was maybe a little stubborn. I hear stories all of the time about the hard-headed, fit-throwing child that I was...don't get me wrong - I was cute... I was just cute with a serious attitude.
To paint you a picture, my mother says the one thing that I "threw-a-fit" about the most was my SOCKS. I hated wearing socks because, get this....the "line" (or seam) across the top of my toes was not straight...or it was too high...or too low...WHATEVER I could find wrong! We have joked about this for years and my mama always said, "Just wait until you have children and have to get them dressed for school....I can't wait until they start kicking their legs and ripping their socks off!"
Well guess what MY child's favorite thing to do is?
Getting dressed for school and putting on his socks and shoes! Yep, the 13 month old RUNS to me like charging bull with his head down, laughing, to put his head through the neck of his shirt, then jumps in my lap and holds his feet out for socks and shoes!
To make things even easier...he LOVES getting his fingernails clipped! Have you ever heard of such? He sits by me on the couch and holds his fingers out...he watches so intently and is so curious!
So mama....for NOW at least....I have one cooperative kid!

but our CAMERA has!
I am SO lost. My husband, who loves successfully searching for and finding things that I have misplaced (which is quite often) has given up hope. We both remember the exact moment we had it last and it has truly vanished into thin air!
So, without any precious pictures, I will have to bore you with words for a few days...
Bare with me until we find our camera or buy a new one...

Now...the leaving for school he loves for two reasons...
#1. He LOVES putting on his shoes!
#2. He LOVES his backpack!
I mean he wants to wear the thing around the house!
When I say, " Are you ready to go to school?"
He smiles and goes to get his backpack!

My friend Keely has an awesome blog! She sells monogrammed and appliqued children's clothing, bibs, etc! (She makes most of the clothes you see Smith wearing!) So cute and so affordable! She's having a give-away right now so go to her website to win a cute backpack or a gift certificate!

I remember Andrew as a little kid with a cute little bowl cut
and his chubby little legs in knee socks!
This weekend, Andrew is leaving home and moving to Los Angeles, California. He doesn't have that bowl cut anymore and I am pretty sure he won't be sporting any knee socks in the California sun! I am so excited for him as he begins this exciting adventure.... He will be moving to LA to pursue modeling and acting and we wish him the best of luck!
Most importantly, we hope he has LOTS of fun!
He has done some work locally and here are some photos from his latest photo shoot. This month's edition of VIP Magazine featured fall fashion trends...

While waiting on the doctor, Smith falls and busts his head! It was such a loud, hard fall that the nurses came running in to check on us! It scared me to death! We were glad we happen to be at the doctor's office because it was a bad enough crash they I would have taken him there anyway! The doctor checked him out and said he seemed fine and that I needed to get used to all these bumps and bruises!
Once we finally calmed down from the crash, the nurses returned for his shots! Yep...after all that, the poor kid had TWO shots!
He's a trooper!
and a big head!
