Texas Trip

I really really wanted Ike to get a happy surprise for his birthday.  Ike sacrifices so much for our family.  So when I was thinking what would Ike want more than anything I decided it would probably be time away from us a guy's weekend.  So the Walker's and I planned for us to come out to Texas and Ike and Kyle could camp then hunt and fish some.  It was a great plan!  The boys were great traveling to there.  We did get detoured for a little bit because of a tornado making its way through.  I wish I had pictures of soaking wet Ike and Brant.  We hung out in Walmart and got the boys dry clothes till it passed.  
These four played great together!  And the boys came back early they missed us so much.  Great daddies!!

 Toddler issues...

These two happy as can be

One of our MANY stops on the way home.....The boys were DONE with the car ride!

Spence 10 months

  • Weight: 27 lbs 
  • Size: diaper-5 (same as Brant) and 12 month clothes
  • Still No teeth!  Still no teeth!!!  Can you believe it?!
  • After tubes he sleeps even better!  I think we are going to have to start making bedtime 7:30.  He takes a nap around 4 at school so he is not quite ready at 7.  If I wait till 7:30 he will go straight to sleep with no fight, and lately sleep through till 6-6:30.  He does better in the pack and play in a room alone than in his bed with Brant in the room.  I plan to try again with that this weekend.  
  • LOVES :
    • Brant
    • Daddy
    • Standing up
    • Eating 
    • Crackers, fruit pouches
    • Being outside
  • Same-Dislikes: getting dressed and cleaning his face... those are really the only two things that upset him!
  • He can drink from his cup pretty well.
  • He is crawling all over the place and pulling up on everything!
  • No change here....Food:  Loves to eat!  He eats any and everything.  His lack of teeth is not stopping this boy.
  • He is taking only formula now.  He didn't miss a beat with the transition.  I'm sure it's age and teething but he started being a very distracted eater.  He is the same with the bottle, but I just decided formula was fine.  
  • Spence's is still so sweet and happy.  He is determined!  If he sees something he wants he will do everything he can to get it.  I love seeing his little personality develop.  

He had to get tubes this month and was a champ.  He did not cry one single time!  Ike would want me to note that he wanted his daddy the whole time.  Where are the emoticons so I can make a frowning face!
