Holding Baby Colten

Dressing up

 Cannon wants to be a bat this year for Halloween. He puts in his bat-teeth and says "I want to take your blood!"
 He also really likes to pirates, especially Captain Hook!
His favorite movie right now is Spookley the Square Pumpkin. Check out the website!

NC State Fair 2011

 We had a great time at the fair again this year! Cannon is here riding the swings with Dennis (look closely to find them!)
 Here's Cannon riding his first roller coaster. Check he and Daddy out in the first car.
 We all got to ride the Ferris Wheel! Colt was sleeping in the baby carrier. Cannon also got to ride on a giant slide and go to the petting zoo where he fed the goats and calves carrot slices!

I think his favorite part was riding this pony. They moved pretty fast so I had a hard time getting a good picture. He said "Yee haw! I'm a cowboy!"

Dennis and I enjoyed the food the most. Dennis got a sausage, onion and peppers hoagie, I got a ham biscuit. We split a gyro and fried cheddar cheese. For dessert, I got my favorite fried Twinkie and he got the fried Pecan Pie! Cannon tasted everything and he liked the gyro and the pecan pie best!

Corn crib

Ganyard Hill Farm

 Last Saturday, we went to the pumpkin patch with our friends Adam, Shel, Cassie and Cameron. They had a Hay mountain with slide, corn maze, corn crib (like a ball pit, but with corn kernels), a hay ride, cotton pickin', and pumpkin patch!

After swimming in the corn crib, Cannon had a diaper FULL of corn!

Colten poses for his 3 month pictures. Cannon gets a tattoo!



 
 

This would've been a great picture if it wasn't for all the spaghetti sauce on his face! Dad's handiwork.


Cannon showing off his new tattoo! Dennis took him to a festival on Saturday. What a brave dad he was to bring Colten and Cannon to a festival by himself while I was working. I wish I had a picture. He had Colten in the baby Bjorn (a baby carrier you wear on the front) and Cannon walking. He said he got lots of unsolicited help from other moms that saw him struggling at times. They wouldn't have helped me if I was alone with the kids! 
Cannon wants to be a purple bat for Halloween this year!

Some pics of our time in the hospital




Colten liked sucking on the dogs to get him through his first car ride home from the hospital.


All dressed up and ready to go home! We left the hospital on Thursday 7/7/11. The c-section went well and I recovered quickly -- thank goodness because the hospital room was so small, we were ready to get out of there!


Getting ready to go home and start our life together as a family of 4!!


Love this sweet little boy!!








Our first family photo all together!


Cannon didn't want anything to do with me the first two days he came to visit in the hospital, by the third day, he was willing to give me a hug and sit by me.
