Go Colts! Then and Now

One of the lovely things about having two boys is that I have hardly had to purchase anything for Ian to wear! I have many outfits that both boys have worn, but one of my favorites is this Indianapolis Colts one piece outfit. The only crazy thing is that Eli wore this when he was six months old, Ian is wearing it at eleven months. I hope that he starts growing soon, I am almost afraid to take him to his one year appointment.

Ian's First Haircut

I finally gave in to Scott. He has been wanting to get Ian's hair cut for a while and just kept saying that I wanted to wait until he was a year old. His hair was getting pretty long and at times it seemed to be bothering him, getting in his eyes, so we got it cut. My sister used to do hair, so she has given both of the boys their first haircut.

His last picture with all of his curls.

Just getting started...

My handsome, almost one year old.
And I think I will go cry myself to sleep now....

Oh, Eli

My Dear Eli,
What ever am I going to do with you?? You amaze me every day and make me wonder how I am going to do this for 15 more years! The other day when your kangaroo costume came (which you INSISTED on getting), you looked at it and said "I don't want that. I want to be a farmer.". Don't you realize that you are a farmer everyday??? Silly boy!
Today we were going to some garage sales and it was the city wide weekend, which means a special map in the local newspaper. You told me you needed to see the map and then after looking at the map for a few seconds, informed me that we need to head southwest. Now, I know that you hear Grampy and Dad using directional words, but do you know what it means??? I was too scared to see if you were pointing in the right direction....
The other day Ian grabbed your sippy cup and started to take a drink, you told him "No Ian, you're not allowed to drink that." When I asked why, you said "'cause it's coffee mom!"...just because I don't let you drink my coffee doesn't mean you can tell Ian you are drinking coffee!
I love you Eli Edward!

Officially Walking?!?!

So, Ian has been taking daring steps for several weeks. I'm not sure what the requirements are to be "officially" considered as a walker, but I am declaring that Ian is walking! He is eleven months old today (oy, where has the time gone...and note to self: get busy planning the party!!!) and he just walked all of the way across our living room! He has become very purposeful in his walking. He has places to be and a path he wants to take to get there. He just walked across the living room to get to Eli, who was hiding under a blanket. When he got there he pulled the blanket off of Eli and sat down, looked at both of us and clapped his hands...just like we have been doing when he ventures off taking steps! So cute! I will try to get a video of the him "walking" sometime this weekend.

John Deere Pavilion - Picture OVERLOAD

We visited the John Deere Pavilion in August and I just realized that I hadn't shared any of these yet! Eli and Joe had a blast! Ian even was grunting to get on a tractor....must be genetic! We ate at the Iowa Machine Shed (yummy!) and Eli and Joe had their meals brought to them in wagons! They loved it!!!!!

A Couple Steps and Love You

I need to qualify this with the fact that the video isn't the best, Ian is taking steps here and there and there are a few on here and I don't care what you say, Ian just said "Love you" - at least to my ears he did!

I'm So Out Of It....

....that yesterday (Thursday) I posted Wordless Wendesday (which I have since edited and spelled Wednesday right). I only noticed this because when I looked at my blog roll, I saw that there were postings for Phone Photo Friday, and realized that only yesterday I posted Wordless Wednesday....jeez.....
