Connor and I went to vacation bible school a couple weeks ago, and it was a blast. Connor loved going in for praise and worship every morning. He got to do his 2 favorite activities...sing and be cute for all of the women volunteering. I learned a valuable lesson...I will never be in Connor's class again. He was not interested in me paying attention to his friends. What can I say, he loves his mommy! We tried to take pictures of them for a craft project, and this is what we got...

It's hard to see that cute little smile when the ball is as big as him!

I can just hear what he is thinking, "Really, Mom? Get this thing off of me!"

Finally a smile. I know, it's a cornball smile, but I love it all the same.

Almost a Year!

Connor is changing and growing so fast. I can't believe that his first birthday is less than a month away. He loves to read, and he will sit for minutes looking at book after book. I use the term read very loosely. He really just turns the pages over and over.

Baby Einstein videos are his favorite thing to watch, but we can't get him to sit down. He wants to try to touch all the animals as they move across the screen!

We went to Joyland (Lubbock's extremely small amusement park) with our church last week. Connor is still too small for most of the rides, but he did go on the carousel. As you can see from his red cheeks, it was about 100 degrees outside. This did not help the fact that I was breaking out in a major heat rash and had radishes for cheeks and whelps all over my body. Unfortunately for you (Colette) I did not take any pictures of that for your entertainment!

Connor is 11 months old. I can hardly believe it. Here are a few pics from his 11 month birthday...

I keep telling him that maracas are for making music, but he would much rather try to eat them!

He is certainly a blanket baby...I can't imagine where he got that from!
