Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

Preston is 7 Months Old!

Still looks at Blue for the first pic every month

Then he starts playing And now for a pose!
My boys sitting on a patio in the recent beautiful weather
My little snuggle bug
Daddy pats the table and then Preston does the same, its our new game
Such a cutie
Our favorite time...Sunday mornings after Prestons first feeding, we all crawl in bed together and watch cartoons. Last Sunday both of my boys fell back asleep!
Little Studd
Ready for a game of golf!
Loves his toys
Going for a stroll at the outlet mall
Preston is his overalls his big cousin Riley picked out

I know I say it every month, but it is so hard to believe that our lil man is 7 months old!! He is getting so big! I think at every age so far i've said that this is the most fun age so far, but we are truly having so much fun with him at this age! The latest things Preston is up to these days include:

-Enjoying tummy time

-He can do somewhat of an army crawl (that may be ambitious, it might be more of a scoot on his belly)

-He will mock us now-if we tap on the table he will follow and do the same

-He has started enjoying banging on things/banging things together

-He can sit up totally by himself

-Gets pretty close to a crawling position

-Can roll back and forth with no help

-Has started eating meats

-Moved to Stage 2 baby foods

-Is approximately 20lbs! BIG BOY!

-Loves giving mommy and daddy hugs and kisses

-Loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (laughs when they sing) and Jake and the Neverland Pirates (I think this is secretly daddy's favorite too)

-Loves to laugh-he's such a happy baby

-Still loves his baths and splashes all over the place (it's messy but worth the laughs)

-Has started sitting up and playing with his toys in the bath

-Celebrated his first St. Patty's Day

-Drank juice for the first time (Mott's for Tots of course)

-Is learning how to drink out of a straw

He is such a cutie and does fun things everyday that we just love! I am having so much fun dressing him, he's like my little baby doll! =) Life is just wonderful, we are so blessed with our amazing son!

It was great catching up and getting to see her precious offspring!

We all had a wonderful dinner and lot's of fun hanging with the family. Preston even enjoyed a little cake! ;) Here's to another great year for grandma!

Preston's First St. Patty's Day

Kiss me I'm Irish!

He is a lil Charmer! Yummy Green Dinner

Even Preston had his own Green juice
Preston celebrated his first St. Patty's day this year with the family. We had a good time with Stephen's family. We had everyone over for a fun green dinner.

The menu consisted of:

Green Spinach pasta with pesto alfredo sauce

Green salad-spinach, grapes, green apples, cucumber, bell peppers, walnuts and feta cheese Shamrock cheese bread

Green "Kiss Me I'm Irish" cookies

Green beer

Green wine and Preston got a green sippy cup of Mott's for Tots

Preston also got a fun green bouncy ball, green sippy cup and green snack cup for St. Patty's Day from mom and dad. We had a good time celebrating the fun Irish holiday!

Crashed out in the back seat, we wore him out!
A couple of weekends ago Stephen had to go on a trip for work, so Preston and I met Shelly, Riley, Kaylin and Nana at the lake house for the weekend. We had lot's of fun! We had some lazy down time which is always nice, did some fun spring shopping, the girls got pedicures and we most importantly got to spend some good quality time with the fam. I think Preston enjoyed watching his cousins play. He can't wait to get going right along with them! We wiped the kiddos out, they were exhausted after all the fun! Good times for sure!
