Chandler can Crawl

Chandler can crawl! He has been trying tto for awhile now. He could go backwards and spin all around but he just hadn't figured out how to go forward until today. He looks kind of like an inch worm cause he sticks his hiney up in the air and then plops down. It gets him where he wants to go though! he crawled all the way from his room to Parker's room.
He can also sit up from crawling too. I hadn't seen him do that until today either. I think Shaun may have seen him do it once before though.
We went to the mall today and got a drink and tried to teacher Chandler to use a straw. He learned so fast. It is cute that he can drink out of a straw now!
We took the boys to Build a Bear and Chandler got excited about a puppy so he got a soft cute puppy with a red shirt and Parker picked out a pink minkey with hearts all over it. We tried to see if he wanted a bear or dinosaur or someting but he wanted the pink one. So silly. When we got home he said it was his curious george monkeys mama. He is really into family and who is who. He always is asking things like... where is Reese's mama (he thinks reese is a daddy dog), and is that kitty a daddy or mama. He just wants to know. It's sweet to me.

We had a great Christmas. e spent Tuesday night with Grandma and Pappaw, Wednesday night with Great Grammy and Grandad and Thursday with Nanny and Poppa. The boys got s many clothes and toys I couldn't believe it. It was really fun. Parker really got into it this year. He was so sweet opening gifts. he showed interest in each gift and said thank you to people as he opened them. He was so poite, sweet and excited. Chandler loved that paper and bows of course. He was very excited and had a great time too.

Today was a snow day! WoooHoo! I love snow days!
While Chandler was taking a nap, Parker and I went through his old clothes to see what could fit Chandler. Parker was such a good helper. He put all the socks away and matched up shoes for me. Chandler is already wearing some 18 month clothes and he is only 7 months old! He weighed 21 lbs when we went to Dr. Daley last week. Anyway, we found a cute pair of Jammies. I think he makes a cute spiderman baby.

Also, earlier this morning Parker broke up his goldfish into small pieces and gave some to Chandler. It was cute of him to do and Chandler loved the goldfish.

The Christmas Train

Tonight we went to the Christmas Train in Dry Gulch, USA. They remodeled and it is very pretty there. We had a lot of fun. It was pretty cold though! It started sleeting while we were there and then we drove in freezing rain home. Yikes! But Shaun did a good job, I am just one of those nervous riders. Chandler was such a good baby. He fell asleep when we rode the train. Parker had fun, he loves trains so much. He also got to ride a pony. But, during the whole pony ride, he kept looking a this small little donkey that was standing off to the side. It really was a sweet looking donkey. It looked like the donkey in the Disney cartoon Small One. I think that is why Parker was so worried about him. He thought that he looked sad. When we watched that movie last week, there was a part at the end of the movie when Joseph buys the donkey to carry Mary. The movie never shows a picture of Jesus or Mary, but when it showed Joseph, I told Parker who it was. He said, oh and Mary! It is neat that he is connecting the two together and knows their names.

The Sleeping Haircut

We went to Wal Mart shopping this morning and then we had to head straight to a hair appointment. Parker fell asleep on the way. So, when we got there I just carried him in asleep thinking he would wake up inside for the haircut. He didn't though! He slept through the whole thing!

I Love You Too

Today I stayed home with the boys because Chandler is sick. Poor little guy it is his first time to be sick. He has a sore throat and a high fever. His fever I think is making him feel sick at his stomach so he has thrown up twice. This afternoon when he threw up poor little Parker tried to clean it up. We were playing with blocks on the floor and I went to put the Tylenol back on the counter. I heard Parker say uh oh, oh no! I looked over and Chandler had thrown up all over the floor and the blocks. I took Chandler to clean him up and Parker said " I keen it up mama" and he ran to get towels. I tried to tell him several times to leave it alone, I would clean it after I helped Chandler. But, he just kept going and getting more towels and saying, "it's ok, I keen it up, I do it." Bless his heart. He is such a good brother. And bless Chandler's heart, he is so sick.
So anyway, when I put Chandler down for a nap, Parker and I laid on the couch and watched Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas. I squeezed him tight and said, "Parker, I love you." He said..."Mama, I wu you too." It was so adorable to me. he says I love you all the time but this time was cuter to me becasue he said "too"

Chandler's First Tooth

Chandler's tooth is in well enough now that we got to take some pretty good pictures of it. He looks so cute to me. The tooth right next to it is about to come in too! Guess he will have his two front teeth for Christmas.
