Yes that is a real tattoo. Chris decided to have a wedding ring tattoo. I guess the good thing is he can never loose it. haha

Well are little guy turns 1 on October 5th. Can't believe it's already been a year. He is growing up so fast and we are loving every minute of it!!! Christian has been walking for a little over two months and now he has learned how to open the front door and escape. Never a dull moment.

Catch Up

So, it's been a while since I've posted anything. I have been traveling for last month between Tulsa, California, and home. Hopefully I'm home a little longer this time. The entire clan went to California for a family vacation and I mean almost everyone. We missed Chris and Kasey!!! It was so great to be back in my home town of Orange County. Gosh, it is so beautiful out they.

Christian is now 8 months and crawling. It's a love hate relationship with the crawling. Our world has changed, now I need to go thru the house and start child proofing. He loved California and the beach (so did I).

Here are some updated pictures. As soon as I get pics from Ash and J-nett, I'll post some of California.

A Tree is Growing Out of My Head

Ashley's son Buddy loves to talk. So they other night Ash told him he needed to be quiet for awhile..."But mom my brain cuts when I have to be quiet". We all thought wow and went on with the night.

When they got home she said, "Buddy what did you mean, your brain cuts"....

The following was what he said, word for word:

"Mom, it feels like a tree is growing through my brain and out of my head. The second you tell me to stop talking it starts cutting and all of a sudden the tree splits and it it cuts, up out of my brain."

So we proceed to dig deeper, as if we aren't already deep...he is only 5. Well, Buddy does your brain cut when your playing your Nintendo DS.

Pops his head up from playing the DS, "Oh no as long as I'm concentrating on the screen my brain doesn't hurt. The second I take my eyes off it, it starts hurting again."

Most adults can't put into words how their brains feels, much less a 5 year old.

Tulsa Trip

We went to Tulsa a few weeks ago and had a great time. My mom decided to get a tea cup poodle while my dad was away in China. HaHa So now when I'm there, they have my parent's standard poodle, Allie's miniature poodle, and now a tea cup poodle. It's a mess. :) We had a great time and it was fun seeing Christian with all his cousins. Asleep on the Swing
"The Princess Has Arrived"

"Mr. Hollywood"

"Grandma Lauren's Doing"

Still loving the monkey

Oh so Cute

Here's to 6 Months Old

Yes call me a first time mom...I celebrated my son being 6 months old today. Well okay not officially but i spent a fun filled day with him and took him to do somethings he hasn't experienced yet.

This is how our day went:

We woke up at 6:30am (working on that one) played and then took a walk down to the community beach. (we live on the South River of the Chesapeake Bay) Christian got to play in the sand for the first time and loved it. Only problem was, I had to keep wiping it all off because he kept rubbing his eyes.

Took his morning nap.

Once he woke up we headed down to downtown Annapolis (one of my favorite places) and had lunch and enjoyed the beautiful afternoon. It's amazing how a sunny day on a Bay of Sailboats can rejuvenate a person.

Christian enjoyed being outside and people watching. He was like one of those cute little puppies that everyone always stops and ask if they can pet. Okay I'm not comparing him to a dog but you get the point. Everyone LOVES him. I'm not biased or anything. :)

After that we headed to the park for his first date with the playground. Let's just say I have a feeling we will be spending a lot of time there. He loved the swing and slide very much.

So by this point my poor little child is exhausted. We head back to car, he falls asleep before I can get out of the parking lot. Which I always try to keep him up till I can reach home...and of course fails every time.

Once we arrived home his eyes were wide open and ready to play with Dad. After a little play time we are all ready to go eat dinner. Poor little guy is still exhausted but not wanting to miss out, tags along for another adventure to TGIF.

Now he is passed out for the night. Didn't even have time to give him a bath. Although did manage to get pajamas on.

It's so fun seeing him grow and experience life!!! I can't believe it's already been six months. WOW!!! I LOVE life!!! I LOVE being a mom!!! I LOVE my family!!

Here are some (a lot) of pictures of the little guy:

He loved the new texture of the sand
Had to add my amazing stoller "The Orbit"

The girls next to him were flying high in the air

My Family

I decided to post a picture of my family because my mom is always calling asking for a place to go with pictures of everyone. So here it is.
I Have such a big family and am so blessed to be close to everyone on both sides.

Come on KC and Lindsey you need to catch up with the rest of us. :) On the Meares side Christian is the first grand kid with more to follow. It is so fun having a big family! I love it and love each and everyone of you.

My Daddy

Every time I leave Christian with Chris I come back to find them in the same position...just chilling watching TV. It's the cutest thing. Christian always takes his hand and rubs his daddy's face. This is how I watch TV with my Daddy!!!

My Great Gandma & Grandpa Meares

Today we went and visited Great Grandma and Great Granddad Meares. We had a lot of fun showing them all of my new tricks! I'm so blessed to be able to spend time with them.
This is who I'm named after John Levin Meares.
