Are you watching me?
Why can't I go out and play?
Do you still have that camera with you?
This rocking chair was Momma's. Her Pepaw gave it to her.
I love Gramps's head!!!
The whole family!! This never happens!!
I am a happy boy!
Sorry, Grammy! More fingerprints on the door.
I finally got it off the Christmas tree!!
I wonder how long they'll let me play with this.
I think I can! I think I can!
Did you really leave me in this chair alone?
Momma's long hair, before she donated it!!
What a face!
I'm gonna get it!
Ok, since I have been such a bad blogger lately, I decided that I would just post some pics...Hope they all load ok!!

I can't believe that in one month, you will be a year old. This time last year, we weren't even planning on having a baby for 3 more months. You have made this past year so special. You are such a healthy boy now. You weigh 19 pounds, 4 ounces, and are 26 1/2 inches long. That is not even in the 50%tile for an 8 month old, but I know you will catch up. You are crawling all over the place and getting into everything. We make sure we keep all the doors down the hallway closed except the door to your bedroom. You are pulling up to your knees, and just today, you finally figured out you could sit down on your bottom from your knees!! That's the only way you have figured out to sit by yourself. You have 4 teeth, and love babyfood....any kind of babyfood. It seems that sweet potatoes are your favorite, but anything with bananas run close 2nd. You are happy all the time. You are a very content baby, and you have made these past 11 months very special for your dad, Emma, and me. We love you

Mac's first Christmas was great. Luckily, since all our family is close, we didn't have to travel outside of Searcy. We spent Christmas Eve lunch with Randall's family, then went to the 6:00 Christmas Eve Candelight service at church. Mac played "Baby Jesus" in a song that Rhonda Ellis sang. He was so cute and couldn't have been any better for the part. After church, we got out cookies, milk and our traditional McDonald's cheeseburger for Santa Clause. We got up and did Santa on Christmas morning. Both kids were very excited. Emma even did a nose-dive into her toys, which included her first Barbies. We sang Happy Birthday to Jesus, and had some birthday cake we had made for Jesus. We then went to my parents for breakfast, then on to my Aunt Debbie's for lunch. We had a great time, and Mac was so good. I think he enjoyed his first Christmas.
