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 9 months Old!

Our first tornado in the master closet with Preston

Scooting on his car by himself

Watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and enjoying his baba while mom washes the sheets

Playing with Izzy, his new little buddy

Good times with his cousins

Pulling up by himself! Uh-oh

Preston's first haircut

Our baby boy is becoming such a big boy so fast! He is growing right before our eyes. It is so much fun to watch him learn and grow every single day! We took Preston to his 9 month well visit and he is in the 75th percentile in height and weight. he's a big boy! He is at a really fun age right now. Some of Preston's new things include:

  • Moving up to stage 3 baby food

  • Crawling (its still somewhat of a scoot, but he's getting it down)

  • Pulling up on everything

  • Says: Mama, Dada, Baba, Baby, Book, Boo, Lala, Nana and bye-bye (some of these aren't completely clear and I'm not sure he knows what he's saying yet, but he gets a lot of words out of that little mouth)

  • Waves bye bye

  • Claps his hands

  • Does the Indian (pats his hand on his mouth while yelling)

  • Gives us sweet eyes (smiles and squints)

  • Is more interactive with his toys (can scoot on his little car by himself)

  • Has 8 teeth

  • Eats lots of snack foods by himself (including Cheerios, Yogurt bites, Cheese puffs and toddler cookies)

  • Gives the sweetest hugs/kisses

  • Copies anyone who coughs or clears their throat with a fake cough (pretty cute)

  • Laughs when we laugh or when someone on TV laughs

  • Lets out pretty loud yells that he thinks is hilarious

  • Plays ball with Izzy

  • Rolls like a log from Steve to me back and forth

  • Got his first big boy haircut!

  • Road on the boat for the first time

  • Sat in the master closet to avoid his first tornado with mom and dad

    • He is an absolute joy! We love every minute with our little man! We are truly blessed!!!

      Lake Fun!

      Ready for a boat ride Nana!

      Our fabulous captain!

      First boat ride!

      Getting sleepy

      Our friends Z and Nikki

      Fun in the pool

      Cute faux-hawk

      Look at my muscles

      Now that Summer is in full gear, we made our first trip out to the lake house! We spent Friday and Saturday just the 3 of us and Nana, then some friends of ours joined in the fun Saturday evening and all day Sunday. It is always such a great time out there! Preston got to take his first boat ride! He was adorable! He really enjoyed it and ended up being rocked to sleep by the waves. He was precious in his little boat coat. =) We didn't get him in the lake yet, but we did manage to get a little kiddie pool for him to play in. He had a great time (and mom had fun styling his wet hair).

      A couple of my team members

      A couple of weeks ago we got to attend the annual Jimmy Buffett concert in Dallas. Since I work on the Margaritaville brand, we plan lots of fun activities around this event. Unfortunately we missed some exciting family time in San Angelo, but we managed to have a good time at the concert anyway.
