play date

Smith's friend Mary Cameron invited him and Sutton over to play while Sutton and her momma were visiting from South Carolina! It was a beautiful day and they had lots of fun!

ice cream and converse.

Our friend Halie turned 12 this week and she had a swimming party this morning! Of course, it was inside at the Sanderson Center indoor pool on campus.
Smith's favorite part of the party....
you tell me...

He wasn't sure about the water.
I don't think he really remembered his love for swimming last summer!
Heidie and Smith playing games!!!
uh - oh!....the ball went into the water.
Smith got Halie JUST what she asked for...and what every 12 year old girl must have...
NEON pink CONVERSE tennis shoes.
Happy Birthday, Halie!
....AND I also need to give birthday shout-outs to my wonderful sister and fabulous mother-in-law who both celebrated birthdays last week!

look who came to town....

Our friends Lili and Jordan live in Dallas and we don't get to see them very we were SUPER excited that they had time to eat lunch with us as they passed through town this week! They are so fun and such good friends and I hope they come back really soon!
Reed was actually there, too, but volunteered to be the photographer!

grandpa and tizzie are FUN!

a day at the lake

I needed to run an errand yesterday afternoon right about Smith's nap time so Reed stayed with him to get him down for his nap...When I returned from my errand this is what I found.....and the thing that worries me the most is that
I am honestly not sure which of them fell asleep first!!!

the boots.

Gannie sent Smith these cute boots for Valentine's Day
and to say he likes them is a total understatement! He wants to where them everywhere with everything!
When he woke up this morning he came to me with them in his hands,
plopped down in his chair and threw his feet up!
Of course, we put them on and wore them around the house all morning!
Thanks, Gannie! They are a BIG hit!

boy. all boy.

visiting mimi

Reed and I took Smith to see Reed's sweet Mimi a few weeks ago. He wasn't so sure about Mimi, but he LOVED the empty wardrobe in her room!!!

making a wish...

18 months.

Smith is really turning into a little boy! I love it and hate it all at the same time!Smith....
loves Mickey Mouse and dances in front of the tv every morning.
thinks taking a bath is GREAT!
say "bye" to everyone and everything.
has turned into a monkey! a tough monkey!
loves to get your seat when you get up.
sits at his little table and eats well with his spoon.
can do all the animal sounds.
loves to show you his tounge and lips. (the cutest thing ever!)
a few of his favorite things to say -"book," "juice," "cookie," "tizzie,"stell!"
spends most of his time in his tent.
sings "I'm in the Lord's Army" and does all the motions.
gives great "zerberts."
loves being outside and does NOT like to come in.
has a new fascination with "boons" (balloons)...
so shopping in Kroger during Valentine's is...well, hard.
loves helping Daddy with the laundry
and emptying the dishwasher with momma.
LOVES Stella. He chases her and loves on her.
(We THINK she likes him, too.)
loves reading his Bible every night.
His favorite stories are Daniel in the lion's den, Noah's Ark,
and The Garden of Eden....see the theme?
"rrrrroooaaaaarrr," "teet teet," "ssssss,"...
he just loves all the animals!

This is such a fun age! We are loving our little man more and more every day!
