Eric is 1 year, 7 months and 1 week old!

Eric is now crawling in between my legs, he thinks its so much fun when my legs grab him as he is half was through!

Eric loves to hide and then reappear behind his bedroom closet door - when he hides, I say, "Where's Eric?" And when he re-appears I say, "There he is!" Eric will now say, "There he is!" he even uses it in the proper context!

Eric is also walking around making clicking sounds with his tongue. If you ask him where his tongue is, he will stick it right out and show you! LOL!

Christmas morning

Wagons are AWESOME!

Christmas with Gran and Papa

Trains are AWESOME!

Christmas with Grandma Linda and Grandpa Bill

Computers are AWESOME!

Dada and Eric play with the KLR after Christmas is over.

Visions of Sugarplums dance in his head as Christmas comes to an end. (I just love how he fell asleep with his hands behind his head!)

Eric is 1 year, 7 months old! (19 months!)

I am 6 months pregnant with Evie

Don't worry, I added the fire and tip jar digitally (I would never let my child that close to fire or loose change!)

Merry Christmas 2009! (I spent 3 hours stringing all that popcorn for the tree, I had to do it in the middle of the night while everyone was sleeping because everyone kept trying to eat all the popcorn!)

Eric is 1 year, 6 months, and 3 weeks old!

This week Eric got his 18-month shots, he was very brave, didn't even cry and got a cool Garfield band-aid! He is now 33.5 inches tall and weighs 26.10 pounds! He also started size 6 diapers this week!!!

We went to visit Santa, but Santa had to take care of an emergency at the North Pole so Eric didn't get to sit on his lap. It was probably for the best, my mommy-intuition tells me Eric's Santa picture would not have included a smile on either face, lol!

There were a lot of cute decorations tho, and Eric had tons of fun running around and checking everything out!

Eric is 1 year, 6 months, and 2 weeks old!

I went to the Dr. today, Evie is growing well, her heart rate is 163 beats per minute.

We went for a walk and took in all of Mother Nature's beauty, just look at all those trees - what great colors! (Eric is pointing to the birds as they fly by tweeting!)

I just couldn't resist making a scrapbook layout with these great pix & colors! The journaling tag says, "We took a walk this crisp Fall morning to look at all of Mother Nature’s beauty - the trees & leaves are gorgeous, and Eric just loved all the birds flittering about. His little flannel shirt and cordoroy pants make me smile."

Grandma Linda took us to the mall and oh what fun there was to be had! Eric ran up and down the entire Mall several times while we ran after him! He stopped for a second to push all 11 of these strollers with one hand!

There was a cool tractor slide.

They had Farmer Mac's Truck...

and Farmer Mac's Truck had Foghorn Leghorn riding in the back!

The kiddie coaster ride was somewhat jerking and not so much fun...

but the jeep was pretty cool!

The bus was the best thing EVER! It had tons of buttons to push and flashing lights!

ok, ok, so the bag originally said "See's Candy" - I just couldn't resist! ;>

Eric is 1 year, 6 months, and 1 week old!

We hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving!

Eric has started rocking himself to sleep - I remember doing the same thing throughout most of my childhood. :) It's strange that he has started now, since he hasn't been rocked to sleep in quite some time. But he is so good at putting himself to sleep now - I am such a proud Moma!

Thanksgiving with Cousin Ashley, Uncle David, Papa Steve, Gran Susan, Eric and Dada!

Dada and Eric reading a bedtime story.

I am 5 months pregnant with Evie, we helped Eric make a heart shape over his new sister with his hands, like a big hug from above! :)

Eric is 1 year and 6 months! (18 months!)

Eric turned 1 and a half on Nov 19th! His new things is putting Scott's shoes on and trying to walk around. He really likes it when Scott takes Bailey for a walk each night and takes Eric along in the stroller. Eric always wants to go outside!

Putting on shoes means going outside, so Eric will put on whatever shoes he can find!

He was able to get these on all by himself and walk around in them pretty well, lol!

Since Eric turned one and a half on Nov 19, I got him this little red and white soccer ball as a little treat. I put it in with some of his other toys so it would be a surprise new toy... you can see how much he enjoyed it :(

Who wants a crumby old soccer ball when you can play with the much more fun and exciting toys from Grandma???

Scott got an early Christmas present from his parents! Thanks Mom & Steve!!!

Our Thanksgiving Dinner, pic 1 (gravy, cheesy mashed potatoes, turkey breast, and peas with a dollop of butter)

Our Thanksgiving Dinner, pic 2 (stuffing and sweet potatoes)

This scrapbook layout was part of an online contest I entered and won! :) The picture is Thanksgiving at Grandma Linda and Grandpas Bill's house, Grandpa Jim was there too! Stay tuned next week for Thanksgiving pix at Gran and Papa's house with Uncle David and Cousin Ashley! :)

Eric is 1 year, 5 months, and 4 weeks old!

Tuesday, when Scott came home from work, Eric said, "Hi Dada!" and ran to hug him. Scott and I were both shocked and look at each other like "did you hear that too or was it just me?" lol! Besides his first two-word sentence, Eric's other new things this week are knocking, clapping when people on TV clap, and waving and saying "baa" (meaning 'bye') after people close the door behind them! :)

Eric loves his kitty cat Mook. On Nov 8, he said "kitty cat!"

I see a fraternity table and lamp shade in his future, lol!

he had his bath, got his new jammies on, and is combing his hair!

checking out the neighbor boy's skateboard... hmmm... (thanks for the super cute shoes, Kellie!)

Eric is 1 year, 5 months, and 3 weeks old!

I'm 20 weeks pregnant this week and I think I have been feeling the new one move for about 5 days. Today we found out the gender of our new baby!

It's a GIRL!!! Her name is Evelyn Evangeline, we will call her Evie Angel. :) :) :)

You are never too young to recycle! :)

Eric and Dada

Eric and Dada 'working' on the computer (because Fantasy Football is important to learn!)

Grandpa Jim's shirt says, "This is what a really cool grandpa looks like"

Eric LOVES music, he helped grandpa jim play the guitar strings as well as drummed on the guitar while grandpa was playing, lol!

Eric had a play day with our next door neighbors

The neighbors have an 11 month old little girl, it was nice for Eric to interact with a baby since he will have a new sister soon.

Eric is 1 year, 5 months, and 2 weeks old!

Eric is now knocking! He will knock on doors, walls, toys, and anything else he can reach! On October 28, Eric's top two bicuspids popped through!

I am now 19 weeks pregnant and had a Dr. appt today. The baby's heartbeat is 165 beats per minute and the doctor says everything sounds good. We will be finding out the baby's sex next week!!!

We had a wonderful Halloween!

We each have a pumpkin: Eric's is the big one carved to look just like the pumpkin Handy Manny carved (its his favorite show so we just had to do a tribute!) Mine is the little one with the stem for a nose, I used a Martha Stewart template. Scott's is the skull and he carved his without a template or anything!!!

The best part of Halloween for Eric was running around the neighborhood!

he was shy when people opened the door...

but when offered candy, he would happily take a sucker. (sorry about the flash in this pic, not sure what happened) He seemed to like suckers the best, meaning he chewed the paper stick of the sucker, he was not interested in actually eating any candy, lol!

Here he is at the last house. The next best part of Halloween, for Eric, was when we finally got home and people came to the door because Eric got to close the door 900 times in a row, lol!
