Sweet Baby Will

I can't believe Will is 3 months old now! He is the sweetest baby... it's the only way to describe him. He hardly cries and is constantly smiling and cooing at you. He lets Taylor "play" with him and is patient with her when she tries to cram a bottle down his throat. :) I think he got both Brett's looks and personality! :) We are so blessed to have him.

I wanted to get a few pictures of Will by himself... Brett was entertaining him and he loved it!

For Halloween, Taylor and Will went as a princess and a dragon. I thought it would be fun to make Taylor's costume this year, even though there are a million princess costumes to buy. I am glad I did it, although I don't think I will be making another princess costume for a long time. Working with the "sassy satin" (as it was called) along with 5 yards of nearly see-through sparkle tulle was not the most fun task! Luckily, Taylor absolutely loved it... you could tell she felt special in it (the jewelry also helped)!

And Will's costume came from Costco. :) He was okay with it being store-bought.
Taylor loved going trick-or-treating. We went with her buddy, Lilley-Grace, and they were hilarious together...

On another note, Will is now sitting in his bumbo... he likes being included at the dinner table now!

Fall Catch-up

Here are some pics from the past 6 weeks or so... the best ones are of Will smiling now!

On his 2 month birthday...

Taylor helping me get Will to smile...

We stopped through Nashville and stayed with Mimi and Grandaddy on the way to one of Brett's interviews a while back... go Titans!

Several weeks ago, Marms, Papa, Nano, and Dado came to see us for the day. Here are some pics of that!

Taylor loves pumpkins this year... we notice each and every one on our way out of the neighborhood. As soon as we find one, Taylor says "Nother pumpkin. I need more pumpkin."

2010 Davenport Beach Trip

A couple weeks ago, we went to Destin with the Davenports. We had beautiful weather and enjoyed the trip, even with a 6 week old! Taylor had fun with her cousins this year...

Will enjoyed his bottles on the beach...

I think Brett was a little more excited than Tay to catch fish...

The guys chartered a boat one day to go fishing. We ate the fish that night and had enough to bring some home!

We went down to the beach on the last night to take some pictures... we actually got a really good one this year in about 2 minutes, despite 5 under the age of 4!

Brett and Will are looking identical...

We are moving...

to this place...

We are moving to Burlington, Vermont! I am not even kidding. Brett matched into an REI (Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility) fellowship at the University of Vermont! We cannot believe it... I am so proud of him! I have to brag on him... There are only about 40 slots for this fellowship in the country and he got one of them. We are so thankful to God for this blessing! And I am trusting that He will help us through the adjustment of this new adventure.

We won't move until next summer and will be there for 3 years.
I guess we will begin looking into some snow suits and snow tires. :)

First 2 Weeks with Will

Will is almost 2 weeks old... so far, so good! Here are some pics from the past couple weeks.
1 week old pictures...

Playing on his play mat for the first time...

Looking at Daddy...

We haven't had a ton of family time with Brett traveling so much, but today, we decided to brave our first outing since we were all together (and it wasn't a million degrees). We went to one of Taylor's favorite spots... the zoo!

Having a snack by her favorite "mingos"

Tay went on the merry-go-round for the first time... she loved it.

And this is after the trip to the zoo... 1st outing with 2 kiddos=pooped.
