Merry Christmas

What a great Christmas. We really enjoyed spending Holden's first Christmas with our family. Cousins Caden, and Taryn, Uncle Daren, Jason, and Aunt Jill all were here to visit. Holden got lots and lots of great toys, a basketball hoop, a ball pit, a play house, and lots of clothes. We are so blessed with such an amazing family.

We had our six month checkup, at seven months and were 16.11 lbs, and 27.5 inches tall. We are pretty much crawling, sitting up, and have one big tooth, and five that have broken through. The top four are in and soon will look like he has dentures LOL. Hope everyone has a Happy New Year.

Holden's First Turkey Day

Turkey day was a success. Holden enjoyed it very much and we were so excited that he was old enough to try things. He enjoyed sweet potatoes, applesauce, and tried some pumpkin pie. He likes to eat everything and if he could he'd eat a steak. However his one tooth wouldn't work so well for that. Today it is freezing outside and we ran errands. I do not recommend this and did not remember how cold it gets outside....and it's going to get even colder. I think I'll hibernate. Snuggle up with Holden, and wake up in the spring to play some more. Brrr! Holden has also started to scoot and maybe he'll start crawling soon. Still not fully able to sit up on his own, but he's working his abs hard and trying. It was also my 28th bday. My hubby and lil man spoiled me with lots of love and presents. I am so lucky for my family. Love you all. Thats all for now. Stay warm friends. Love Holden

Don't Bite

Quick FYI, our first tooth is through. We didn't do too bad, and its so exciting. The small things we get excited about as a parent are funny. But I definitely love it. I can't wait until it's big enough to see when he smiles! I will put pics up as soon as it gets there.

6 Months Old!

Baby boy is going to be 6 months old on Wednesday! Wow! That is all I can say. We have really enjoyed watching him grow. His first tooth is finally going to pop through soon. His poor little gum is a bit swollen and i can feel it in there. He is really such a joy. So happy and always smiling. I haven't updated in a while and definitely need too. Just been so busy with work, I had my knee scoped, and life just gets in the way sometimes. I can't wait to celebrate all of the holidays with friends and family. They seem twice as fun knowing it's Holden's 1st of each. Here are a few pics from October and his first Halloween.

Pumpkin Time

Today we visited the pumpkin patch. Nick, Grandma and Grandpa Hlavacek, and our friend Liam went out. We had a lot of fun. We looked at pumpkins, and even got to see some farm chickens. Fall is the best time of the year, and it was such a beautiful day. Here are a few pics from our little adventure

Grandma Came to Visit!

Yesterday my Grandma Stacy came to visit. I suprised her at the airport and tied an "I love Grandma" balloon to my overalls so she wouldn't miss me when she got off of the airplane. I get to spend five whole days with her and am so excited. Happy Holiday weekend friends.

Teeny Tiny Tooth Poking Through

Holden has reached a new milestone....he's teething. A teeny tiny part of his first tooth is poking through :). And, at only 13.5 weeks old! He is a drooling fool and is sucking and chewing on anything he can get his hands on. Crazy kid. I hope he's not a cranky teether. Eeek. Wish us luck!

August has been a busy month so far...
Lets see, where to start..hmmm. Well, we have just been having a lot of family time which is fantastic. I started back to work Last Monday and Holden got to start daycare. He loves it and all of the kids. I miss him most days, but it's so exciting to come home to him. It makes the days go really fast. This weekend I got to get away and have "mommy time" and Nick with his guy friends for Nate and Kaly's bachelor/ette parties. Such a fun time. Very little sleep, but well worth it. I also met a lot of new fun people. Here are a few recent pics of the little guy! Tomorrow he's officially three months old. Yippee. Its going by so fast.

We had our two month checkup friday July 16th. I am 11 lbs, 23 inches, and my head was 16 inches around. I did a very good job and stretched whe the nurse said to stretch. Then I found out I had to have shots! It did hurt pretty bad, but I was a trooper and only cried for a minute. I was all smiles after and took some good naps. It was also my daddy's birthday. I got him the new Gary Allan cd and a cake.

On Saturday I went to my first wedding. It was such a good time. I wore my best outfit and got to meet even more of mommy and daddy's friends. Congratulations to Josh and Beth Bear! We had such a fun time.

My first time swinging outside

I was a little cranky here

Caden and I had a photoshoot.

Holden, Nick, and I visited our favorite Aunt and Cousins in South Dakota this past weekend. It was Holden's first road trip! He did very good and got lots of rest because he knew he'd have a very busy weekend of playing with his cousins Caden and Taryn. It was a great time and Grandma and Grandpa let us stay overnight in a hotel to get some sleep while they watched HC. 12 hours of sleep for new parents was so much appreciated. We are lucky to have such a great family that is so supportive.
