Christmas night Papa, Nana, Collin, Mamaw and Papaw came over to open presents for them. We were blessed with a Wii and enjoyed having professional lesson from Uncle Collin J Before they left we made sure that we sung happy birthday to Jesus and ate some birthday cake. (chocolate of course!)

Merry Christmas! This is by far my favorite holiday. It is a time to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. A lot of times people get so wrapped up into the gift giving that they forget the whole reason for the season. I pray that Hunter grows up to realize that the presents are a nice but the fact that Jesus was born is even better. Happy Birthday Jesus!
Before Grammy, Grandad, Pops and Mimi came over to open presents, we decided to have “our” time and open gifts. Hunter really enjoys the bath tub and taking a bath so he got some new bath toys and this musical monkey toy that he picked out at the store. Yes he picked it out. We didn’t want to get just any toy so we went to the store and let him play around with everything and this was the one he seemed most excited about so we hoped it would be a winner. It seemed like his favorite toy was his existing toy frog... oh well!!!

The Christmas gatherings have begun. This is Hunter’s first Christmas and I couldn’t wait to see how he responds to the toys, wrapping paper, ornaments and etc. So far he hasn’t really cared to much about the tree.. He enjoys looking at the lights but could honestly live without them. It was a lot of fun decorating the tree this year.. I just put him in his bouncy seat in front of the tree and he had a ball! He thought it was hilarious every time I would get on the step ladder to put the ornaments on top part of the tree. Easily entertained... I love it!
Today Mimi and Pops came over to eat lunch and open presents. So far Hunter has mostly enjoyed the bows and of course eating the paper!

After church I decided it was about time to finally get an updated family portrait. With the way I have been feeling lately I knew they better take a picture with me in normal clothes because before long I will be in cotton pants and a t-shirt. Haha! Thank you Mimi for coming over and taking a few pictures of us... I know it was such a burden J

Hunter loves anything that makes noise and the louder the better! He also enjoys putting everything in his mouth that he finds. The only reason I can come up with is if it taste good then it’s a good toy to play with.. not sure! The leaves are now falling and I knew Hunter would love it, and boy was I right. He instantly started crushing them in his hands and trying to throw the leaves. And before he could really say if he liked them or not... he had to taste them!! Thankfully I caught him before the actually entered his mouth J
*Also at 5 ½ months old, he weighs 18 lbs 5 oz and is 27.5 inches long

We went to the church where they were having trunk-or-treat and then went to Mimi and Pops house to help give out candy. Overall, it was a very relaxing Halloween!

At Hunter’s 4 month check up he weighed 16 lbs 5 oz and was 27.5 inches long. No matter what kind of day I am having... either good or bad.. this stinker can always bring a smile to my face. He will blow bubbles until you laugh or smile at him!!! He is so musically talented J

For one of my grandmother’s birthdays, we had the honor of going out to eat with her and some of our other family members. Hunter does very good eating out and in public. He likes to sit in one of the high chairs at the restaurants but right now his favorite spot to be is still in someone’s lap!

Hunter has officially graduated to the high chair instead of someone’s lap or his bouncy seat at home. From the look on his face I think he is excited.....
This high chair was given to us from Matt’s sisters, Tanya and Crystal. It leans back for easier feeding now, then converts to a normal upright high chair, then a booster seat. How awesome is that!

Big boy is now sitting up pretty well and enjoys time in his Bumbo seat. He just sits there and watches a movie or we play games. These seats are so helpful in allowing him to understand what muscles are needed for him to sit up by himself.
(he is trying to hold all of the excitement in... he can't reveal how thrilled he is!!!)
