A Day from Hell

I had a pretty important class presentation today. Since we didn't have anyone to watch Dustin, Kearney decided he could watch him during his lunch break so I could attend my class. I got to class a few minutes late for the first time all semester and when I walked in, my group was walking back to their seats...I had completely missed my entire presentation. Then, come to find out later, just as Kearney was leaving the apartment to go back to work, he T-boned another truck, totalling the other guy's vehicle and smashing-in the front of his. What does this all mean?

Happy Thanksgiving

Kearney, Dustin and I celebrated Thanksgiving at Dad's. Dusting tried sweet potato casserole and mashed taters with gravy. We also took Dustin on his first official hike in an old-school hiking pack. He burrowed himself into Kearney's back and then slept the entire time. Must be nice to be a baby.

Grandpa and Dustin partaking of the delectable morsels of food.

A very cute Thanksgiving outfit from Nana.

Dustin chillin' with Uncle Celtin.

Derek and Dustin are the best of cousins; not surprisingly, they get along quite well.

Pacifiers are Dangerous

I put Dustin down for a nap as usual, and he started to fuss, which I didn't think anything of (becuase he almost always fusses himself to sleep), but then he started to really cry. I went in his room to see what was wrong and he had an entire NUK pacifier lodged in his mouth backwards (so the end of the nipple was the only thing sticking out of his mouth). Can you believe that. I though pacifiers were baby-proof, but I thought wrong. We still give him his pacifier, especially since he's teething, but we take it out of the crib as soon as he falls asleep.

Bubble Blowing Contest

Dustin and I had a bubble-blowing contest one day after bathtime. I thought it was hilarious, although as you can see, Dustin had his game-face on.

Another Good Day

Dustin and Daddy having some guy time.

Dustin became quite efficient at tossing his toys off the high chair. How did I respond to this? I tied them to the chair. Ha, 1 point for Mommy!

Baby Laughing is Contageous

I love it when little kids laugh. Even if I'm in a bad mood, when I hear Dustin laugh, I can't help but smile.

Jogging Stroller and High Chair All in One Day

We borrowed this jogging stroller from one of our friends. Although I thought it was quite awkward to run with a jogging stoller, Dustin loved it.

Dustin's first time in his new high chair. This is the best high chair ever! The seat part of it has no cloth on it at all, meaning crumbs have no seams in which to collect. It adjust many, many different ways. Lastly, also in the seat is a hole, with a container attatched underneath to catch all the crumbs...this container easily slides on and off and can be dumped/rinsed in the sink! Amazing!!!

The Croup

Dustin has croup. Kearney's also sick with something. I feel great! Maybe moms really do have super powers...

This is one of my most favorite pictures of Dustin.

Dustin and Mommy.

Orange Poop

We gave Dustin his first taste of carrots yesterday and today he surprised us with bright orange poop! He's also become a little rolling maniac these days.

I Hate Running

I did a 4.5 mile run today. I really hate running. In fact, I'd rather change poopy diapers than run.

I cooked a kick-ass dinner for Tyrell and JaNell. I wouldn't normally brag...but my cooking typically sucks, so I'm taking advantage of the situation.

First Brick

Britannia and I did our first brick workout today! It included a 1,000 meter swim followed by a 3 mile run. Yehaw!

Too bad we're too big to do legxercises like Dustin.


Angela had Malayna today. She's also stinkin' cute!

I gave Dustin his first dose of liquid vitamins today and I decided I should probably give him another month before I do that again. It was a lot like giving a little kid 10 RedBulls in a matter of a few hours. Use your imagination.

By the looks of it, we must have fed him peas.

24 Years Old

This was the extent of Kearney's Birthday, on his Birthday. We were kind of pissed at each other for some reason, but at least I made him a cake.

Our Increasingly Mobile Baby Elvis

Here's the increasingly mobile part...'s the baby Elvis part.

The Walk

Dustin is a huge fan of crossing his legs whenever he's sitting down. Unfortunately, this crossed-over into his "walking".
