Pumpkin Patch

After our Nashville trip, we stayed in Dallas for a few days and got to spend some time with the Ford side of the family.  It is really fun to get to see Drayton with his cousins!  Other than the pumpkin patch, I didn't get too many pictures, once again.  I've got to get better.

We got to go see Grandmother Ford!  4 generations.  Pretty neat.

He asked her where she got her necklace.

She asked him where he got his blankie.

That is pure joy on a little boy's face.  He loves a good steering wheel.

He has much better focus when he's driving.  His mommy has hit 2 parked objects in the last month.

After Florida, Nashville, and Dallas, we are definitely homebound until Thanksgiving.  We had a great time, but it is definitely time to be home for a little bit.

It is always so nice to go home! We went to Nashville last week for a week and it was so great.  However, I hardly took any pictures.  So here's what I got.
Drayton got to meet Aunt Ruth! (and Ben, Andrew and Uncle Nate, but I didn't get pictures.)

My cousin Jessie just had little baby Sam.  He was so cute and little!  My cousin Jenny's little girl, Madison was obviously doing a great job holding him.

Drayton enjoyed the safety of Aunt Jessie's lap.

Macey was very attentive to Drayton.  He wasn't exactly sure about it.

Slappy driving lesson.

Grandma came over on our last day before the airport.  Drayton, Caden, and Tate were all 3 crying and being pretty needy.  This picture sums up that morning.

Excited for our flight.

Florida and 8 months

So, I'm not so great about updating on a regular basis.  I figure, I'm good if I can keep doing it once a month.  So, Drayton is 8 months! (as of a week ago)  He has lost a pound since last month due to him still not wanting to eat!  I have found as of yesterday that he likes puffs even though he gags on them.  He gags on just about everything.  His weight loss is also due to the fact that he is now army crawling everywhere and getting into everything!  He likes to play a lot and is still an easy smile to just about everyone.  He says Ma ma regulary, though I'm still not sure if he says it meaning me. 

We took another trip to Florida with my parents and grandparents.  It was a wonderful trip, despite almost every single one of us having one ailment or another, and the 13 hour drive.

Two little travelers after 13 hours in the car. Ty designed these beautiful onesies in honor of Slappy.

Couple of cabana boys.

Slappy and Drayton all geared up.

So, Drayton hates food and juice, but loves, loves, loves water.  He gets really excited to drink after me.

If anyone wants a free haircut, I would be happy to.

Never a good idea to wear your hair down at the beach.

All 3 boys had so much fun.
He's definitely teething.

Thought I'd advertise one more time for free hair cuts.
