Even thought I knew handing him over to a strager was going to result in a cute little crying picture like this, I was on a mission this year to find get his picture taken. I heard of all these good deals so I was set on getting a good santa at a good price :) In other words, I didn't want to pay a lot of money for a crying picture of Julian and Santa. We decided to go to Walgreens. My friend Selina brought her little girl Ava over and we went to Walgreens. We walked in and quickly made a Uturn when we saw this skinnies most GHETTO santa ever sitting on a rickety chair in front of a really bootleg get up they called a "background." It was funny so we just got in the car and set off to find another Santa. I had heard about Santa being at Old Town Spring so that is where we went. The picture quality was horrible but we have scanners and it's just the fact that I wanted his picture with Santa. Mission accomplished!!

Have I ever mentioned that I love this little boy. He is a big mess an'd into everything, but I am so thankful to be this little guys mommy. I set up the christmas tree Saturday night (early this year because we are going out of town). Sunday morning Julian woke up to Christmas!! He just kept making his happy/suprised sound and pointing. (you'd just have to hear it) But he was more obsessed with the vaccum that was still out. lol! We weren't sure if the tree was worth the fight but has done so well. Plenty of "no no!" but he's doing great. Yesterday his new obsession was the kitchen cabniets. He discovered that if he threw everything out, then it makes a perfect little tunnel just for him.
I washed the carseat getting ready for the 10 hour road trip and this morning he discovered that it was fun toy until he stood up in it and it fell forward and he flattened his face on the floor. oops!
He thinks that crawling up onto the fire place and standing up is fun and we are very consistant with NOT letting this happen. Julian is a little sneeky though. He backs up slowly and sits and smiles and thinks that is ok :) too cute not to take a picture. Then the NO NO and off the fire place came.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

Here are a few pics of our "ALMOST ONE YEAR OLD"!!! WHAT?!!! I can not even believe that Julian is almost one. When I watch him running around everywhere making our lives a living... JOY, I can't even belive he was inside my belly last year at this time. He's supposed to be my little baby but he's becoming more and more independent everyday. Don't get me wrong.. he's still a momma's boy and needs his daddy time too. Here a few picstures we've taken the past couple weeks. Some may be blurry because they were taken with my phone and he never stops moving.

Yeah so the day before yesterday he said "ball" for me like 3 times but he hasn't said it to anyone or me since. So yesterday Ms. Shiloh was trying to get him to say "ball" and discovered that the little dude can seriously catch. No I didn't believe her at first but he sure enough can. He throws it back to you too! Well he throws it somewhere? When we got home he did it a few times for me but he had to shoot the ball in his goal before he would throw it.
Ok so Julian had a great first Halloween!! A friend of our had a party for their kids and their friends and families and so we grabbed our little Spiderman and joined in the fun. Here are a few pics of the cutest spider man ever! He wouldn't keep the mask and hat on at all. He found a little girls "old granny" wig on the floor and thought it was hillarious and then he found her cain. Since he wouldn't wear the mask i tried to put the hat on him but then he just looked more like a doctor dressed up like spiderman so we just went with the no mask. We are looking forward to next year!!

Walking one month after the first steps:
He is now walking everywhere and really doesn't crawl that much at all. Please ignore my phone conversation in the background. Bad timing for a phone call but just wanted to share my cute little boy walking. Notice the video has to be cut off early because he picks up a leaf and decides to eat it. There are so many different kinds of baby food that this little boy will not touch but anthing off the floor is delicious!!

Here is my baby J with his "Baby J" :)

He broke is "8 step" record today. Well on camera at least! I'm sure he's broken it several times but I finally got it on camera. I can't believe how big he's getting. Oh and don't mind the mess in the background. That is called "JULIAN!!"
I've always heard stories of babies falling asleep in the high chair while eating but I really couldn't image Julian ever settling down enough to do that. But I was proven wrong tonight. Julian makes recovering from the flu so much more enjoyable :) Even though I am sure i have exposed Jerry and Julian, I have tried to wash my hands a million times today. I'm praying they don't catch this crap.
My mom is on her way tonight!! And Jerry is leaving tonight to drive to Tenn. I'm sooo glad my mom is coming. This was a very inconvienient time to get sick but sooooo blessed to have Jerry who is amazing and then did i mention.. MY MOM IS COMING!!! yay looking forward to a restful weekend.
Hope everyone is great! Take care

Julian was 9 months on Sept. 5th. We had a great Labor Day weeknd. We traveled to Rotan for a family reunion and had a great time with the gang. Jerry and I decided to start out Friday about the time Julian would be getting sleepy. It was a great idea because Julian slept the whole 7 hours there and then a few more when we got there. Not so great for Jerry and I being awake the next day :). We got in around 3 and didn't get hardly any sleep but we managed to have a great time the next day with countless games of volleyball, softball, kickball, basketball, etc... We came back on Sunday afternoon. Julian took a great nap but then he was awake. He doesn't seem to be a fan of his car seat after 4 hours awake in it. To make a long story short we got 15 mins from home with a sleepy sleepy baby that was TIRED of being in his car seat and we ended up having a car seat, back seat, a baby, and a mommy covered in PUKE!! fun times!! Car seat, back seat, baby,and mommy are clean now and all is well. :)
Julian had his 9 month appointment on Tuesday morning. He weighed in at 22 lbs 9 oz, he is 31 inches long, and his head is still in the 95th percentile. So we are so thankful to have such a healthy happy baby boy. Here are a couple videos I took one day this week after school. He is such a hoot to hang out with. I love being this little guy's mommy.
Video 1: Just a little bit of Julian and Odis playing together. Notice he stands alone now. They didn't know I was in the kitchen with the camera. Of course Odis thought he was alone so the video ends with Odis steeling some of Julian's treats off the table.
Video 2: Julian is a big dancer these days. It started with a singing toy but now he'll dance to anything- even his mommy being silly. I can not seem to get a video of him really "gettin it" but this is just a sneek peek of his dancing. :)

My baby can growl!! :) It's soo funny. We discovered that he would imitate my nephew when Carson was pushing him in the stroller. Now I think it's getting old for him but he'll still imitate us and sometimes even Odis if he starts growling at someone walking past the window.

Oh yeah, she was my roommate for almost 3 years in college and my mom and I were staying with her last night. I mentioned how I was wanting to get Julian's pics taken and she mentioned how she had this great camera and had been taking pics lately and.... shaBANG! she took us downtown Lubbock before my cousins wedding and the magic happend :) SHE is such a BLESSING!! I can't wait to get some blown up and framed in my house. She got soooo many great ones. These are just a "few" of my favorites. I'm too excited about them to wait and really pick out my official favorites. I want to share them!!!
Julian and I are home safe and sound from out week in west texas. We had such a great time. Julian is in MUCH need of his own routine and his own "schedule."
HERE ARE JUST SOME OF MY FAVORITES. THERE ARE SOO MANY MORE GREAT ONES.
