Last week was my birthday, and Jared really outdid himself! He came to me on Wednesday and said I had a birthday eve present, but I couldn't ask any questions. I went into the guest room where 2 dresses laid. My instructions were to pick one for Friday night. Henry visited with the Learys while we went out. I must say that they took GREAT care of him (Thanks An, Bryan, Riley, Karlee, and Aubree!). Jared and I enjoyed dinner at a really fancy restaurant. It was DELICIOUS!!! I had a fillet and Jared enjoyed rack of lamb. It was wonderful to share some adult conversation over a fantastic meal. Here's a few pics from our night out!
Jared made a memento from candle wax...nice!

Grammy Judy sent Henry a couple outfits. They are so cute! As promised, Lauri and Grammy, I dressed Henry in one of the outfits and put him in the bluebonnets! It was a gorgeous day, and I especially like the baseball cap.

This is the other outfit Grammy Judy sent. He's ready to play for the Mavs!!! Thanks Grammy!

Hi everyone! Boy are things changing around here! I've got pictures and videos galore. Grammy Judy and Aunt Lauri, I took some pics of Henry in the blue bonnets, but I didn't like them because it was cool, cloudy, and REALLY windy. I'll take him again this week on a prettier day and get them uploaded!!!!

I can't believe it's taken me so long to blog about this particular subject, but Henry's nickname isn't "Too". It's weird. That's what I called him when he was in my belly, but it just didn't work out like I thought. So, I'm sure you're wondering what it is...Doodle. It changes from Doodle-bop to Doodle-bug. We call him everything under the sun from Bubba, Buddy, Hank, the french version of Henry (sounds like On-ray), but it always comes back to Doodle. Kind of funny how that works out. Poor guy...I wonder if he'll know his real name.
I've had a few successful job interviews and have progressed to the final rounds. I feel like I may have something soon. (Wow, a lot of unknowns in that sentence!) Anyway, I have a field ride on Friday and an interview with the regional manager on Monday. We'll see what happens. Please be in prayer that I make the right decision regardless.
Henry's trying some puffs...

Jared's trying to get Henry to crawl. He doesn't do anything in this video but you see his little personality.
Henry "scoots" to find a toy. My little Doodle...he's so determined!

Bath time

Henry's new toy..He's OBSESSED with it!
Ready to go swimming! I got this for $3.99 from a consignment store called Kid-to-Kid...It's FANTASTIC!!! This little find is originally from Old Navy! I cannot wait to take him to the pool!!!

I know this is cruel, but he's just so cute when he cries sometimes!

Pooped after a long day!

BUSTED! Mama, I'll help you wrap the present...

Okay, maybe I'll just eat the paper!

Jailbird and Beautiful Day

I was talking on the phone with my friend, Tiffany, the other day when I had just put Henry down for a nap. He's such a wiggle worm these days...this is how I found him when I went to check on him. Please keep in mind that before he fell asleep, he cried for a few minutes. He was staring out his crib like this pitiful!!!!

Yesterday was GORGEOUS!!! Holly and I had a date planned to go to the Arboretum for today, but she called yesterday to see if we wanted to go...YEAH!!!! It was absolutely beautiful. Henry and I had never been, and I was a little obnoxious with my camera (sorry Holly and Lydia). I need to take a photography class because yesterday was a wonderful day to create some pics. Henry was a great subject's a few highlights. There are more on facebook, if you want to see. Today, we are getting to celebrate Lauren's b'day! We are excited to go see her and Justin. Her birthday was actually Monday, but Happy Birthday Aunt Ya-Ya!!!

Mama, I LOVE being outside!

Lydia's a bit skeptical of this photo shoot!
Ok, now we're friends!
