Is Anybody Out There?

Several of my most loyal followers have asked where I've been and I'm sure several have given up on me, but I'm back in blogworld. It's been a month since my last post, so here's a few pics of what we've been up to.

Matthew is now a month into 1st grade. It's been an adjustment getting into the swing of homework every night, spelling tests every Friday and REAL grades, but his three week progress report was AWESOME, so I guess he's got it figured out. I'm praying that the rest of the year goes as well as this first few weeks have. He's not playing any sports right now, but he signed up to be a "Bleacher Creature", which means he has a "big brother" on the varsity football team and he gets to run out in front of the team at home games....very exciting.
Here are some pictures of a fishing trip we took a couple of weekends ago. Matthew caught three catfish (two were big ones!)...more than anyone else caught. He was very proud, and we're all looking forward to a big fish fry at Mimi and Pop's.
Colby wasn't so interested in fishing. He spent much of the evening throwing the bait into the tank. This picture cracks me up...typical Colby! His face is healing up well. The pathology results came back fine as was expected.
Ryan turned 1 on the 14th. We had a big football party planned for the 13th, but Hurricane Ike changed our plans. We were unsure of how bad the weather was going to be, so we ended up cancelling his big party. Since Uncle Trey and Aunt Amy were down anyway (for Amy's! baby girl stuff is fun...but that's a whole other post!) and I had already bought cake, we didn't let Ry's big day go un-celebrated. HE LOVED CAKE!! I think he would have eaten the entire thing if I would have let him. He screamed and through a huge fit when we took it away.

So...what's our little 1 year old up to? He's very close to walking, but isn't quite brave enough to take a step. He is into food, the toilet, any little crumb or dirt on the floor, every drawer or cabinet he can reach, etc. He says Bubba, Momma, Dadda (but Matt is usually Momma), and Pop (although I think Pop means "I want to go outside"...imagine that!). He says ball and loves to play catch with his brothers. He is very curious about everything they do...which is VERY DANGEROUS! :) He started out a terrible eater... but now...he loves to eat....he would eat until he got sick if I let him. He ends every meal crying because he wants more. All my kids have been good eaters, but he has both of his brothers beat. I think spaghetti is his favorite. He also really likes mashed potatoes. And.... he has a bad temper! He gets so mad when things don't go his way (definitely a "baby of the family" trait, right Matt, Pop and Amy?)
As I always say, I'll try to update more often, but who knows with this crazy, wonderful life!
Stay tuned!
