D's 1st (and ONLY) PBJ Sandwich!


Dalton was thoroughly enjoying these first few bites of his sandwich, and then Mommy noticed him rubbing his eyes, nose, mouth, ears . . . .

By the time I thought about taking a picture, his face had already gone down, but most of the reaction was in his face. He got to ride in the ambulance which he loved sitting up in the ambulance's "carseat" like a big boy! Mommy didn't like it quite as much, that was my first ambulance ride too. When we got in the ambulance his face was so swollen he was unrecognizable, his eyeballs were swollen and bulging out of his sockets, and he was a nice shade of grey. Praise God he did not have a respiratory reaction! So his throat did not close and he had no trouble breathing at all! Whew. Luckily, Daddy and Mommy were both with him when it happened. He was much calmer than we were....until the 2 unsuccessful IV attempts and then the 2 shots!!! . . . .

We will see the Pediatric Allergy Specialist on Nov. 16th to find out exactly what he is allergic to. It may be peanuts only, or anything containing nuts, or cooked in peanut oil. We have no idea, so in the meantime, adding new table foods is off limits!

Happy 91st, Nanny!

As stated by my cousin, Nanny is the oldest person we know!
We are blessed that the Lord has kept her around for all these 91 years. He is working through her...there is not a person I know that doesn't love her. She is the most faithful Christian woman that I know and I appreciate all she has taught me about the Lord! I can only hope that I touch as many people in my lifetime as she has in hers.

A few pics of her party!

Dalton lovin' on his Nanny! (Or Nanny lovin' on her Dalton)
Opening presents. You'd think a 91 yr old would be over the excitement of a birthday and receiving presents, but not this one, she LOVES every bit of it! You can see it in her eyes!
Haha. Dalton sitting in his Uncle Randy's chair that is VERY old! We've all sat in this chair!

Happy Halloween

Where's Dalton?

I think he thought if he got under here, I wouldn't find him. The banging of the toy kind of gave it away. Apparently he likes playing here! He often grabs a few toys and goes to hide. It's so much fun now that he can actually play independently...sometimes! I love to watch him and wonder what is going through his little mind.
A penny for your thoughts.


Nite, Little Monkey!

The weather is so nice, but it's chilly at night for a little monkey! So we tried out the footed pjs! What a cute lil' monkey!

I'm a Country Boy . . .

Growin' up & Cuttin' Hair

It occurred to me this week that my baby is looking more like a little boy! I dressed him for the cooler weather and it was like he transformed before my eyes into a little man!!!
(Also notice that he is not looking at me... this is also typical of a little boy, am I correct??)
Notice the hair over the ears and swoop bangs that most teenage girls and emo boys would die for??? Well, they are no more! I finally caved and let the very trusted and talented, Christy, cut my little boy's locks! :( Sad that he's growing up... but soooo very cute!
Here he is . . .


Bye bye bye

are not just the lyrics from your favorite N'sync song!!!!

They are also the newest words (or word) in Dalton's vocab!

He just goes around repeating it over and over. He must know I'm proud!

He's also pulling up and cruising around the furniture like a little pro... it won't be long before I'm posting that he's taken his first steps!

Can't believe my little booger is 10 months already!

Prayer for the Manross family

The Lord has laid it on my heart to ask for prayer for a sweet, sweet family. I have asked you to pray for them before.
The Manross family has a precious son, Hodges, who is about the same age as Dalton. When I fret over bumped heads and runny noses, I often think of Hodges' mommy, Ashley. I cannot imagine the daily struggles she faces. I get a glimpse of her world through her blog, and I am amazed at her amazing faith! She and Rich are wonderful parents to their children, the ones here with them and the one in heaven. I want to ask all of you to pray for the family for strength and courage to face the next day. After reading what all they go through on a daily basis, even when they are at home, I realize how much we have to be thankful for.
God has a purpose for Hodges and I pray He keeps him here with his parents for a long time!
