lmc . 8 months

this girl. 

she got her first little bottom tooth on septmeber 24. lots more are coming. 

she is busy as a little bee. following her brothers and happy to be wherever they are. she is a silly little thing. her personality is really shining these days. these photos show that very well. she is so proud of herself when she does something new. 

she's been on quite a few runs with mommy and really enjoys sitting in her stroller and taking it all in. she loves being outside. she will sit in the backyard and watch the boys run here and there and everywhere content to chew on a piece of grass. 

loving these baby days with Lucy!

boys to men . football

we have started having a "boys to men" night every week this fall. we aren't doing extra curricular activities because we wanted to spend that time investing in them at these ages. so we took from them things they've been asking about and also some things they need to learn (survival skills etc.) and came up with an assortment of evenings spent together learning new things.

this week in particular matthew taught them the ins and outs of football. then we played together. 

honestly, it was so much fun. and it just so happened that Clemson played that evening so after we played quite a few games in the backyard, they got to come in and watch a game knowing all of the positions and trying to figure out plays. their little faces lit up when recognized something they had just learned. 

i sure do love boys.

will goes to school

this little cutie has moved on up to the four year old class this year! will is going to pre-school three days a week and he thinks he is the biggest boy around town. really he is. it's been an adjustment for him with tucker at school this year so school for him has been good. he loves it. every bit of it. he comes home proud and so glad to have been with friends. i see a confidence in him this year and it's so fun to watch. living with this boy is nothing short of hysterical.

lmc . 7 months

this baby has blossomed this month! 

she started eating all sorts of food. her favorites being guacamole, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, and oatmeal. she despises baby food and only wants what we have. she prefers to be able to pick it up and feed herself. 

she started crawling on our trip to fripp. then she really took off when we got home. she immediately began pulling up and pulls up on everything. she's fairly determined and is highly motivated. we had to lower her crib which just makes her seem so big.

she is waving and giving kisses. she always responds to her name. she is still extremely attached to mommy but does great if i'm just not around. she will play alone for short periods of time but is so used to her brothers' attention that she misses it when they aren't around. she prefers them and they can make her giggle like no one else. 

little lucy, baby girl, lu gu, goose, caboose, lu, beautiful girl. we love you!

around the house // august

when lu started crawling and pulling up, we were capturing her a lot. AND eating food. AND just loving her brother's love for her. 

will buddy is adjusting to being the oldest home now that his brothers are in school. we have been taking things real slow and i think he may be getting the hang of it for the few hours he's the biggest. 

saturdays and a pile in the back yard for daddy to read out loud! 

just a few things around here this month.

first and third grade

tuck went off to first grade this year. it's his first year at school and i think we have all been a bit nervous about the whole thing. but it has been by far the best thing for him. THE BEST. he is blossoming in every area and i could not be any happier at how well he is doing. he has a most excellent teacher who is helping guide him this year. i miss that little guy around here but the Lord has been so faithful to provide some really good moments for us in the time we have after school. he needs a good snuggle and a good release of energy when he gets home so we definitely make all of that happen immediately. 

grey bear was certainly ready for his first day of third grade. he had his clothes ready for weeks and couldn't wait to start school. he's growing so much. and third grade has been a big change for him academically. more challenging. but he is always excited about learning and is very thankful for new and old friends in his class this year. 

these boys are such a joy.
