Our very own Halloween decoration...


So, this is Mr. Spider. He lives on a really big web on top of our Japanese Maple tree in our front yard garden. We found him 3 or 4 weeks ago, and Mommy sent Dad and Mr. Tim out to kill it. They came back in after a little while and said it was a good Halloween decoration. Mommy wasn't too happy to hear that. Well some time passed by, and we had a few rain storms. Mr. Spider's web was rained down and Mr. Spider was no where to be found. Dad said he was hiding somewhere. A few days later, his web was back, and he was back on it. Then, the same thing happened again with the rain. Mommy thought he was gone for good. But today she looked out and saw this. I'm not sure if you can tell from this picture (and this picture is of Mr. Spider's belly), but Mr. Spider is HUGE. Like, icky scary huge. Mommy really wants him dead and even had a nightmare that he got on her, but we're not really sure the best way to "handle" the situation. Hopefully we'll come up with something quick so Mommy can rest in peace.

I'm a Zebra!

This is the Halloween costume M'laine got me...isn't it fun?? I think so. I'm not quite sure what kind of sound Zebra's make. I asked Mommy, but she didn't know. Do you know? Please tell us if you do. I need to practice before next Tuesday!

A Weekend in Branson

Here I am last Thursday in my cute overalls playing with my crinkly book. I sure like my crinkly books - I have 4 of them! They are my favorite. I can crinkle them with my fingers and chew on them. What a great toy!

And here I am later that afternoon with my sweater on. Mommy says she can't wait until I stop spitting up because then we won't have to have a big bib on over my cute outfits. This outfit was a hit! This was me getting ready to drive up to Branson to visit Papa and M'laine. They were vacationing in Branson, so we decided to vacation with them for a few days. We had such a great time!

I was so happy to see my Papa and M'laine, and I think they were pretty happy to see me, too :) We had a lot of fun playing and napping together. I gave them lots of sweet smiles.

On Friday night, Mommy and Dad went to see the Andy Williams show, so Papa and M'laine watched me back at the hotel. M'laine got me a zebra halloween costume that is very cool, and I got to try it on while Mommy and Dad were away - Papa got a few pictures on his camera, so we might post some when we get them from him. This is me after M'laine fed me - I was so sleepy that I didn't want to burp, so M'laine thought that if she layed me on her lap like this I might give her a burp. I decided just to sleep instead.

And this is my best friend, Hudson! When we got back from Branson on Saturday, I got to hang out with a few of my friends. Caroline is one of my new friends, too, but she was eating while Mommy had her camera out, so we didn't get a picture of her this time. She's an awfully cute and sweet little girl. Anyways, this is Hudson, and he is a little over 2 months old. We had fun laying next to each other on the floor and kicking our legs.

Well, I turned 5 months old yesterday. Can you believe it?? Mommy thinks time is flying and can't believe that she and Daddy have a 5 month old. Well, I'm getting hungry, so I think I'll go have a snack!

My Fun Week!

During one of my baths last week, Mommy and Dad realized that we don't have pictures of me in my cute towels. So they decided to snap one in my puppy towell. I love bathtime! This is my really cool shirt that my Aunt Jenna gave me when we were all in Colorado last month for Grandpa Jere's birthday. It says Rock Star - I'm gonna rock your world. Aunt Jenna thinks I'm a rock star and she knew I'd love this shirt. I wore it for my cousin Jamey's birthday party on Saturday. It was a turtle party, and I had so much fun! Mommy says I sure was a rock star, which, translated in our family, means super, duper cute! I think Bella is so funny these days. I like to smile and laugh at her, and she loves to sniff me and give me kisses. Mommy and I played "fetch" with her on the floor the other day, and every time she would go fetch her ball and come running back, Mommy would say "Here she comes!" and I would giggle...it was a fun game! A very exciting thing happened this weekend...Grandpa Jere and Grandma Lou got to come visit! Like I said before, it was my cousin Jamey's birthday this weekend, so they came to help celebrate. Since Jamey's other grandma was staying at his house for a few days, my Grandma and Grandpa got to stay at my house for a few days before staying with Jamey for a night! I'm so glad Jamey could share on his birthday, cause I loved having them here! Sunday was a very rainy day, and there was lots of football on tv to be watched. Mommy and Grandma did some fun girl things, while us guys watched football. I'm not usually allowed to watch tv, but here's me sneaking in a little football. Sports have always mezmerized me - I love golf and football! And here I am having to say goodbye to Grandpa Jere and Grandma Lou on Monday morning. Mommy and I had to leave for work so I could go to my class, and Grandma and Grandpa were going to Jamey's house. We were sad to say goodbye, but so happy we got to see them for a few days! Thank you for staying with me, Grandpa and Grandma - I can't wait to see you again at Christmas!

Go Razorbacks!!

Today is a great day. You want to know why? Our Razorbacks beat Auburn!! Now, for those of you who are not from Arkansas, let me just tell you, this is a big deal. Auburn is ranked #2, and this was a huge game. I got all dressed in my Arkansas gear for the occasion. I cheered them on, and I think all my cheering paid off. We stayed ahead the whole game and ended up winning 27-10. GO HOGS!!

I love toys and squealing

Oh how I love playing with toys! They are so fun to grab and put in my mouth. I especially like the ones that make that "crinkly" noise when you smoosh them together between your fingers. But really, anything that I can grab will do.

Lately, I've also realized that I have feet! I love grabbing my legs and my feet and pulling them up to my face. Sometimes I even like to chew on my toes.

My latest thing is that I like to squeal really high over and over and over again! I woke up on Saturday morning squealing, and I've been doing it ever since. I'm not upset or excited...I just like to hear myself squeal. It's a fun noise to make...you should try it sometime!
