This is pretty much how Henson sleeps 99% of the time. Crammed in a corner of the bed, curled up. Since this is how my doc told me he was positioned "on the inside", which is why he WOULD NOT COME OUT, I guess he finds it comforting.

I promise he can breathe, though. How do I know? Well, because he always wakes up. And this time was no different. Except that he woke up with this:

"I am so excited that my 1st birthday party is on Saturday! How come my mom CRIES everytime she talks about it??"

"Mom and dad got too excited to get out my birthday present today (a week early) since the weather is going to be so great this week. So I had to try it out. Some slide, castle, ship type thing. Whatever it is....I. Love. It."

Reunited, And It Feels So Good

(I hate that song. I can't believe I actually made it my title.)

We met our good friends, Cam and Liz, for dinner last night since they were in town

Jocelyn - cutie!

Henson layin' down the mac.

Henson is going around kissing everyone these days. It's super cute, but he better watch that with the ladies.

SIDE NOTE: I was very hungry last night so I got my own meal. I was feeling a little selfish and didn't want to share with Lucas or Henson. So Henson had his very first personal resaurant meal. He ate an entire grilled cheese plus broccoli plus some cheerios. Then he downed an 8oz bottle about 45 minutes later. I think Lucas needs another job to be able to support our child's eating habits for the next 20 years.

This is my mom and her sister, Dana.

Dana with Henson at 2 months old.

Aunt Dana and her son, Joshua, from this past Monday. Yes, her two year old son. So, now I am an 'aunt' to my cousin because it just makes more sense that way.
I just wanted to give a little shout to my aunt. I just love her!

I never did post pictures of the church Baby Dedication table I decorated back in February.
(Plus I need to move that nasty mullet down the page.)

I made these pinwheels out of double-sided card stock. Then I painted dowel rods, wrapped them with ribbon and attached the pinwheels.

I am also a little addicted to making these tissue paper poms.
I didn't get a good picture, but i also tucked a small amount of the button poms in the corners of the table between the tablecloth and the skirt.

Don't Be Too Jealous

Don't hate me because my husband sports a mullet for all of OKC to see.

So, after I had already begun writing this post I noticed my sister-in-law's post HERE.
We are all just too awesome.

Senior Picture Practice

Henson is 11 months today. He thought it would be nice to take some traditional and thoughtful pictures in the back yard.

He Missed Me

I had a girls' weekend in Abilene with some of my best girl friends. Abilene may not seem like the luxurious vacation local, but it's great when your best friend lives there.

While we were there we painted all the baseboards and trim white to brighten things up.

I don't have an after. Totally forgot. But it looks great. Just imagine it.

Meanwhile....this person spent Friday-Sunday in Minco with Papa, Gigi, and Meema. He was very disappointed to wake up to me this morning.
Who can blame him with this ride?
