When Mommy and Daddy are Away....Baby will play

Miles got to spend some one on one time with Honey, JoPa, Uncle Joe and Randi this past weekend. He was so excited Friday-as you can tell by his cheesing in this picture. We left Friday afternoon and had dinner that night at Meemaws.

Then, on Saturday, Matt and JoPa went hunting and Honey and I hung out with Miles.

Miles has a new high chair at his Honey and JoPa's house. Well, it is not really new because I used it when I was little. He loved getting to eat breakfast in his "new" chair.

That afternoon Miles took a little bit of a nap (as much as an 8 month old can while Daddy is watching football) and Honey and I ventured out to Walmart. At Walmart....we ran into this guy......

Yes, it is Michael Myers. It was an employee who dressed the part, and I am not going to lie, he was kind of freaky.

That night, Matt and I went to a wedding for a friend of his from high school. We had the best time! We got to see some of his best high school friends and their wives.

Mrs. Cleek, Mrs. DeBerry and Mrs. McCulloch

We had a blast! Congrats to Taylor and Julia!

While Mommy and Daddy were away.....Miles was at play, having the time of his life with his Honey, JoPa, Uncle Joe and Randi. Randi sent me this video while we were at the wedding....

Miles turned 8 months on Sunday, the 28th. More pictures and MILEStones to come! Hope everyone has a fabulous week.

Laughing is the Best Medicine

This video you are about to see will make you smile so if you don't want to smile....DON'T WATCH IT! I caught Miles laughing at a bag a few weeks ago. I love his little laugh so much! Hope you enjoy it.

Fall Fun at the Farm

This weekend we spent hanging out as a family. Miles got to visit his first farm on Saturday. Since the weather is absolutely amazing, we ventured out to Donnell Century Farm in the Spring Creek area. If you have kids, live near here, and need something fun to do you should definitely go out there. It is a really neat experience. I think Miles might have been a little too small for what they had to offer, but he seemed to enjoy himself. I feel that next year he might like it a little bit more.

Here are some pictures from Miles' first farm outing:

Miles got to ride on a John Deere tractor just like Jo-Pa used to do.

He also got to touch some real cotton for the first time.

Miles didn't really like the goats and horses, but he did like the chickens.

Our sweet family of three!

Daddy took Miles on his first trip down this huge slide....

He seemed to like it.

Miles wanted to bang on the pumpkins.

Miles loved touring the farmer's market maze with his Daddy.

Falling in Love with Breaks

Two weeks ago....I had fall break, which meant that I got to spend every day with my sweet little Miles. We watched Seasame Street, crawled around on the floor, went to practice for a singing show I was in, visited with Honey, and took family pictures.

Sunday-Tuesday of Fall Break we went to Arkansas to celebrate Honey's birthday. I think Miles got more presents and attention than Honey did. Honey and Jo-pa gave him a laughing Elmo and Meemaw and Papaw got him his first musical instrument-a piano.

Here's his reaction to the piano:

Wednesday night I took little man with me to practice for Dear John, a show benefiting the Jackson Symphony. I sang three songs in the show-Oh Darling, Beautiful Boy, and In My Life. The show featured Beatles songs and allowed me to appreciate the Beatles because I never really have liked any of their songs. Miles was so good during our three hour rehearsal. He loved to hear everyone sing, and even moved his feet to the beat of the songs a few times. I truly believe he is going to be some sort of musician. That night my mom came for a short visit.

Thursday, Honey, Miles and I went shopping around Jackson. Miles enjoyed himself and his new hat I bought him.

Oh...and on another note...that day he slept in this target basket for at least 30 minutes while Honey and I shopped! He was so tired. That night, Matt kept Miles while Honey, Mimi, and Papa Darrell came to hear me sing.

Friday, we hung out as a family and Matt got a new ride.

 We are so happy about his new truck. He didn't have room for Miles' car seat in his old truck and it was about to break down! That night Mimi hung out with Miles so Matt could come and hear me sing.

The next day we went to a gorgeous house in Jackson to take some family pictures. (More pictures from that when we get the CD of images in from our amazing photographer Megan Seals.) It was such a gorgeous day to take pictures.

But the photo session wore Miles out!! He slept the whole way home and didn't want to wake up for us to take him inside the house. I thoroughly enjoyed my first break of the school year with Miles!
