Food, glorious food!

We've had a big few weeks!

 Mimi and Nongy, and Uncle Cole and Aunt Tiffany came to visit again!  It was also a very special trip since his great-grandparents, Grandmom and Jack, came to visit!

We have introduced him to food!!  I'm not sure how much he's actually eating since it all seems to end up on his face, his tray, his bib, his legs, his eyes . . .  The first few times I made it, it was a little bit clumpy and he kind of gagged on it.  So, I guess that means some of it is getting to his throat.  I've gotten much better though, and he loves it!  He tries to grab the spoon and feed himself, which usually results in him dumping it out.  Suddenly, he seems so old and big to me!  But it is the cutest thing to watch him try to eat.  I love it!

Proud moment for every parent

Drayton has quite the hairline.  I thought I would highlight his best asset, the rat tail.  You will also notice his dreads (it looks like bugs in his hair.)  Classy.

Drayton frozen on Daddy

This video is about a week and a half old, but I just love it. Drayton was just so still, but had the sweetest little expression. Ty said he thought he was asleep.

5 months

Warning: excessive pictures (don't complain and say you won't read my blog anymore when I warned you.)

I feel like Drayton is becoming a real boy! He's still a sweet little baby, but he is changing so fast!  All in the last few weeks, he has mastered rolling over from his back to front (still working on front to back), he is starting to sit up on his own, and yesterday at Kristen's house, he started to try to army crawl!  Today, he started to get his knees up under him!  It is so exciting!  It has been a while since I last posted pictures, so I'm just going to throw up a bunch.  But first, I remembered to take his 5 month pictures!

He's got this look down.

Mimi and Nongy came for a quick visit!

Not only were Mimi and Nongy here, but Uncle Cole and Aunt Tiffany came too!

Last Wednesday, Kristen, Caden and Tate came to camp for a visit!

Then it was on to Longview for the 4th!

bunch of little boys! (*bonus if you can guess the person with the dirtiest hair)
This hair doesn't count in the contest
I love that sweet little face!

Drayton on the nannycam

So, this video might be boring for you. We have loved having this video monitor! It is so much fun (and slightly creepy to some) to watch him play in his crib! I had just put him down for the night and of course, he immediately woke up and was trying to tell me about it. Also, no, he is not lying in a pile of leaves. We got some camo bedding for out at camp.
