Mark and his train

Mark's figured out how to climb up on his train and make it go. He sure does enjoy riding it.

Mark's (gulp) One Year Check Up

He had a great one. The pedi is happy with the way he's growing and progressing.

He is 21 lbs 6 oz and is 29.25 inches tall. His head is 18 5/8 in. He was a trooper for his shots as usual. The pedi also said she wants him on 2% milk, that whole isn't necessary because he's growing just fine.

We don't go back until his 18 month check up now!

Happy Birthday Mark!

Wow, it's hard to believe a year ago we were in the hospital with a newborn. We were a few doors down and heard his first cry. We looked at each other and smiled, knowing that our son had just been born. And we spent the whole day just amazed, with our son. And he was such an alert little guy, such a sweet boy. He looked at us the whole time, taking us in, and our hearts melted. Wow, what a year it's been!

Happy Birthday Mark, we love you so much!

A year ago today

We got the call that our lives were going to change forever in a week or less time.


Wow, what a difference a year makes!

This is why he was meant to be a Texan.



He's so not a fan of snow.

He's only been in snow two other times in his life, Jan 14 and Jan 17. And he didn't like it so much then either ;)





But we couldn't resist. Since it rarely snows here in Houston, we let him stay up late and play in the snow. He liked it when he was being held or was in his little car, he just didn't like having to actually touch the cold stuff.











And while it's melting, there is still a little snow out there this morning. It'll disappear in a few hours though as the sun warms it up.

Mr Gobble Gobble

Aunt Holly came to visit and took some pictures of Mark at the park. He's wearing his Thanksgiving outfit and some pictures are with his favorite wagon.
