This is my nephew William. Doesn't he have the greatest blue eyes?
He and Nana came to visit while Chuck was out of town.
It was nice to have another adult around and for the boys to be able to play together.
He loved the Harley. I'm sure it'd make Big Daddy proud.
The boys enjoyed having someone to drive the fire truck while they put out fires around the yard. It's a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it.
And I have to share this photo because it was so sweet to have a picnic with my dear friend Dalinda and all our kids. So fun! Except that Chandler kept crawling into her lap trying to eat all her food, ha!
Then we went to Austin to celebrate William's first birthday.
My sister Desi was in a car accident. We're so thankful she survived!! She was hit by a big hauler truck. She's got some damage in her arm and back. I'm so glad she made it through ok. We've now deemed that Lexus makes some very safe vehicles.
Nana & Charlie
Me & Chance (thanks, Anna!)
And this is a familiar sight on most road trips. I'm not complaining. ;)
Chandler has a new thing. It's called "Attack and suck on Momma's face."
See any resemblance?!
He's been practicing grabbing things. Can you see the pea in his hand?
He's also been practicing revenge on his brothers. He's always crawling all over them. I think he's getting them back for the torture before he was mobile. Wrestling won't be far behind.
I LOVE our neighborhood. One morning Chuck heard a noise and opened the curtain, only to find 2 bucks going head to head. He wasn't able to catch the action, but he got this shot of one of them.
And another morning, I opened the curtains and enjoyed watching a doe and her fawn play in our backyard. She got this close - no zoom used. And the fawn was just frolicking everywhere. I kept wondering if he'd slide down the slide. LOL
And one random day, Charlie actually asked me to take his picture. How could I refuse that?!
One day the boys' friends William & Elizabeth came to visit, they had a meal on the porch.
And Elizabeth and Chandler took their turn with the fire truck. Yet again, another girl that I love being around. What is it about being around little girls that so intrigues me?! (Maybe the lack of them in my own family...)
And this is William, not to be confused with the nephew, but the friend. He is so cute. He and the boys solved a mystery in the backyard, complete with finding clues and footprints. He's a clever kid!!
Lastly, here's Chandler, and the reason I had to lower his bed. He's pulling up to standing and trying to stand alone (his record is 5 seconds today). I'm just waiting for that first step...
