An Apple a Day...

Keeps the frownies away.
I can't be sad when I look at him. Not that I have any reason to be sad right now.
But just in general. :) He's a happy-maker.
Looking back at a few weeks ago...pre-haircut and front tooth still hiding...
I find myself smiling at the pictures never posted. Wondering how I ever filled my days with anything that didn't include Elmo, sticky floors or unidentifiable food on the rug. Thankful for every goofy smile and the existence of non-dangly earrings. Marveling at how I somehow ended up with the baby I had always dreamed of - even after what seemed like a nightmare. And thankful for the simple joys of eating a juicy apple...or at least gnawing on one. :)

The Big Picture

Thanks to my good friend Sarah I've changed up our blog look. :)
It's like seeing Jet on the Big Screen! lol.
I can't get enough of him...but I guess I'll share a little.
Getting ready for lunch on the patio with the Jet-Man.

Kitty!


Where'd Kitty go?


How do I get down from here?

Trying to lure Kitty with a banana puff...look closely and you'll see it.
Needless to say it didn't work. :) Oh well.

Elated to be Eleven

Whoo-Hoo! Ta-Da! Hip-Hip-Horray!
Jet Montgomery 11 month's today!
You're nothing but sunshine
Through and through -
Eleven months sure looks good on you!
You make us smile in a special way,
You're more and more fun every day!
I can't believe how fast you've grown,
Or how quickly time has flown.
Your brilliance and warmth are easy to see,
You make home on the floor such a great place to be. :)
It's a beautiful day!
The weather is pretty!
So cruise the house and chase that kitty!
You're learning to crawl toward the right spot -
Maybe today is the day she'll get caught!
Love.
You.
Baby.

PT Cruiser

So we're sittin' around the kitchen...
Having a good time...
When we see something!
Is it a bird? Or a plane?
NO! It's Super-Jet!
And he's moving across the floor!
So I guess Jet's PT (physical therapy) is paying off (which we knew 'cause he is doing so great!) because now he is officially cruisin! :)
Okay - so maybe there's a 1 mph speed limit...but he's going!
The little man is finally moving in the forward direction. He's been scooting and twisting and pushing himself backwards for a few weeks now and has eventually gotten to where he wants to go (or more often than not... gets stuck under some furniture)..but now he is driven! He's motivated and he's goin' for it! Sometimes on hands and knees for a few "steps"...but then he goes right down for the army crawl. Saturday night was the first we'd seen it and I captured the below video Sunday afternoon. By Sunday night he was even better! Boy when they learn something they LEARN FAST. He's not too fast for me yet, and we're still working on building those muscles so he can up his speed and agility little by little -but this is HUGE for us. One of those little things that can be taken for granted unless you've had a doctor tell you it may never happen. Now that was before Jet was born - and since we've been TOLD he would crawl and walk etc but to actually SEE it is so uplifting. We're so happy for him. He's wanted to do this for so long and now he's getting somewhere. :) So YAY Jet! You got it and you're gonna keep gettin' it till Mommy is chasing you down the hallway. But only that one time...cause then you're gonna obey me and come when I call you right? :) LOVE YOU BABY!!!

Festival Fun

On our way to downtown Kennesaw for some good ol' southern festivities! :)
The Big Shanty Festival has been around ever since I can remember and I grew up coming every year since I was a little girl (even last year at 8 months pregnant!) and this weekend it was Jet's turn to experience it. :)

Just 5 minutes away in the heart of Kennesaw...
...there's fun-filled train rides, homemade ice cream, boiled peanuts, bbq, funnel cakes and lots of booths set up for games and selling one-of-a-kind treasures.
It was the perfect weekend for a festival and a gorgeous afternoon to go.
A Balloon for the Baby!
Happy is the boy with a balloon!
His smile sweetens my heart.
He kept trying to get out - I unbuckled him and he almost did!
He looks so big!
Homemade peach ice cream! The perfect Georgia treat. :)
Open wide!
Sharing a bite with Mommy. :)
Sugar for my sugar.
Faster Daddy!

Who's that little boy with the blue balloon?
Yes You!
Where is your family?
Oh there you are Daddy!
Time to get in the car...so it was time to say bye-bye to the balloon...
He didn't even cry. What a sensible little guy.
Somebody's got that "I need a nap" stare... :) I guess we should call it a day.
Happy Sunday Everyone!
