Porter and Friends

I don't know where the time goes. I keep taking pictures, thinking "Oh! this will be great for the blog" Well now I'm finally posting them to the blog:) I absolutely love this one!! I put him in the Exersaucer and he was just fascinated! He's really too small for it, but we've been wrapping him in a blanket to keep him propped up until he can do it better by himself. I'm just glad I had the camera handy!

Last Sunday we went to Benton's 1 yr birthday party (David and Sarah George's little boy) They let him dig into his own personal cake. It was too cute!

Porter was just chillin' in his seat for the first part of the party, then he woke up for this cute smile.

Benton opened his presents and I think he just ate up all of the attention. He loved the drum set from Mama and Daddy.

On Sunday night Hannah came over from Clemson to visit us and Porter and we treated Hannah to Smoke on the Water for a birthday supper.

More Smiles!

I have really enjoyed watching Porter develop lately. He been smiling so much and he loves playing under the Baby Einstein. I'll post a video of him playing soon. It's so much fun to watch! He's just discovered that he has hands and feet in the past few weeks. He just stares at his hands sometimes and you can just see the wheels turning! Here are some new pictures. When I change his diaper, he looks up at the banner on the wall that has "All Creatures Great and Small" on it and just smiles and kicks his legs.

My Little All Star

Porter was being kind of fussy this morning, so I thought I would try out the Bumbo seat. He loved it! So of course I had to pull out the camera. He looks so big sitting up like that:) We went to Target to get a present for some friends of ours last week and I found these cute overalls and just couldn't pass them up!

Christmas 2008

Sorry it's been so long since we updated our blog. When I have free time during Porter's naps, there are so many other things I think of that I need to do other than post to the blog, but I'll try to be better about it:) We had a wonderful Christmas with our families. Porter and I went to my aunt Beth's house in Lexington on Christmas Eve and celebrated with my Dad's side of the family. John couldn't go because he had to work, and we really missed him, but we had a very yummy brunch with them and enjoyed our time there. Christmas was a whirlwind day as we spent Christmas Eve at our house in Greenville. We had our little family Christmas very early Christmas morning. We read the Christmas story before we got out of the bed, and then we opened our presents. John helped Porter open his little present. Santa only brought him one thing...the book Guess How Much I Love You, since he couldn't ask for anything yet:) Then we packed up and went to Sumter and had brunch with John's family. It was great to see John's brother, Richard. Props to him for the digital picture frame! What a great idea! Grandmommmy Mary made caramel pecan rolls, which tasted fabulous as usual. We visited with them and opened presents until a little after 2, then we went to Mayesville to open presents with my immediate family. Nana, my mom, had some appetizers including a really good new dip and toasted butter pecans (some of my favorites:) My sister's little girl, Haley, and Porter enjoyed their first Christmas together. We got some really cute pictures of Haley with antlers:) We stayed there for an hour or so and then went to my grandparents house to celebrate with my extended family. We ate supper there and opened presents. We really missed our grandparents this year as they both past away last year, but we all enjoyed the day and I'm so thankful for all of my family. Whew! We were exhausted at the end of the day, but it was all worth it! John drove back to G'ville and Porter and I stayed in Mayesville. Click here to see more pictures.
