Autumn's Officially Crawling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, yesterday was the DAY!!! Autumn has been crawling about 2 or 3 steps for a couple of weeks now, but had NO desire to go any further. And with her being my 2nd I have not pushed her to do anything in a hurry b/c I realize now how quick time flies! Needless to say, last night Montana had jewelry laying in the floor on the opposite side of the room and I look up and Autumn was off to get it! After crawling at least 6 or 7 steps (and all the way to the jewelry) Montana gets in front of her and says "No Sissy, that's mine!!" as loud as she can. Anxious to see her crawl again, I move Montana out of the way and move the jewelry and she crawls about 4 more steps to it. All I can say is our house is fixing to be turned upside down b/c now Autumn can get into everything of Montana's and that is gonna cause some fights!!! Autumn has been pulling herself up for the past month and having no desire to crawl until now, so I see her walking in not TOO long!! And she now has 5 teeth, we are working on #6 at the moment.

Montana's swing set is 1/2 done, we'll have to finish the other part tonight. But, the slide is on and we had to slide a million times last night!!

I hope everyone has a GREAT Friday tomorrow!! (I will knowing that I am off for Labor Day on Monday)

Well we survived the trip to Lubbock and had a great time by ourselves!! We ended up buying Montana a metal swing set, so tonight we are putting it together for her!! I will post pictures later of her playing on it. At the allergy dr. Levi got put on allergy shots which should be here in 2-3 weeks and he will take one every week. I think this will really help him, especially in the long run!!

With our internet down at home I haven't posted any pictures lately. Here are a few until I can borrow the internet again!! (And the guy isn't supposed to be here until Sept. 9th to fix the internet- there is a chance before but we'll just have to see. I am going to go NUTS before then)

She looks so sweet in her cap!!

She likes to pull her cap off!

My sweet baby asleep in Daddy's arms!

This is my "Goof-ball" :)
She loves to take a bath in Autumn's tub!!!

A quick pic before church and Montana wanted NO part of it!!
(I look like I am CHEESING!)

Blah, Blah, Blah!!!

Our weekend was pretty blah, blah, blah, but we did get to enjoy just hanging out at the house!! Montana is in that phase where she is REBELLIOUS!!! So we spent all weekend pretty much spanking her or making her to go to her room for time-out, and that gets OLD so quick. Autumn was very fussy and finally on Sunday I figured out that she had another tooth, one of her front top teeth. This makes tooth #3, and she turns 1 in less than 2 months!! Dang time is flying!! On Sunday the girls went and stayed with Ma and Pa (Levi's parents) for about 1/2 a day while we cleaned. We got their room organized and rearranged, now it is time to tackle the office!! YIKES, I am dreading this one. They are going to visit Patsy and Rodgie (Levi's aunt & uncle) tomorrow night for a few hours after we get home, so I am sure they will have a ball!

We are going to the ranch rodeo in Wichita Falls this weekend, so I am sure we will have LOTS of excitement from that. Until then, Have a great week!! And if you're wondering where Autumn is in these 2 pics- she was occupied playing on the porch with Grandad!!

Montana doing her favorite thing- feeding Bo Bo, Wild Thing, Susie, & Charlie (the calves)

Montana helping wash Belle
It has taken us 2 nights to cut all the balls out of her hair, but she looks so much better now!!

...Clowns, Parade, Rodeo, Horses, What Else?...

What a crazy time we have had over the weekend!! To start it off on Thursday night the girls were in a clown contest. On Friday was the parade, BBQ, and rodeo. My brother Todd and Sheri came in for that day, and then on Saturday Sheri and I and the girls went to Childress to shop at Owens. By the time I got to Wal-Mart the girls had me stressed!!!! They were both tired and 2 of them just makes it seem twice as bad. Sheri says it wasn't as bad as I thought it was, but once again sorry Sheri for having to deal with that. At the rodeo Montana did the calf scramble Friday, but then chickened out on Saturday. Hutton rode a sheep Friday and so Montana wanted to, but guess what, she CHICKENED out on Saturday!! Big Surprise!! :)

On Sunday we went to ride the horses, first time since Autumn has been born. Montana loved it when she was Autumn's age, but guess what- she was scared!! Big Surprise!! We made her do it and she liked it after we rode for awhile. When I was a little kid I was the exact same way, so I am just paying for me. My Dad says, "She sounds just like her Mommy!" And the last night we went and visited MeeMaw and PeePaw. Autumn slept almost the whole time we were there and Montana ate a cookie and drank milk!! (She HAS to have that everytime we go to MeeMaw's)

Belinda- I blogged before a week-YEAH!! And Amy- tell Case he can join us to ride horses anytime!!

And I leave you with a ton of CUTE pictures!!
