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's 1st 4th of July

This is Preston giving me "Sweet eyes"

Our Little Firecracker

We spent Preston's 1st 4th of July at Lake Palestine at the Lucado family reunion. We had so much fun visiting with everyone and showing off our little firecracker. =) Preston was precious as usual and enjoyed playing with our cousins little girl who is only 1 week older than him. What was almost as enjoyable as watching these two, was watching all of the adults taking pics of these two together. It was pretty funny all around. We decided we'd better watch out since Preston was already turning on the charm and patting her leg. Lots of fun was had by all and although it was late and past his bedtime, he got to enjoy some fireworks with mom and dad to close out the celebration!

Preston is 10 Months Old!!

Loves walking around the coffee table
And the recliner

Riding in the BIG boy car seat

Playing with daddy's Father's Day balloons


My cutie

Such a sweet boy

Hard to believe another month has past! Preston continues to grow big and strong and continues to be the love of our life! He is so completely amazing. Everyday it seems he does something new and takes one step closer to being a little boy and not our baby boy. It's absolutely incredible how quickly time flies. In the last month our precious little angel:

-Is almost walking (he took his first two steps on his 10 month birthday)

-Is into absolutely everything. Funny how he wants everything he can't have and his toys are not anything he wants to play with these days. =)

-Is such an explorer

-He is independent. He's already giving mommy the shove so he can go play on his own without being held back

-He is extremely happy! His smiles brighten my everyday!

-He has started blowing kisses

-Celebrated his first 4th of July

-Can stand on his own for several seconds

-Gives the most amazing and loving kisses and hugs

-He is the life of the party everywhere he goes. He's so friendly and outgoing!

-He can put the rings on his ring stacker

-He mocks us laughing and coughing (its pretty cute)

-Is now doing things on command like clapping, high-five, blowing kisses, waving and doing the Indian

-He has moved to his big boy car seat (SO BIG)

-Is crawling everywhere and pulling up on everything!

-We now find him standing and sitting up in his crib on a regular basis

-Is all boy! He tackles his stuffed animals, knocks down towers we build with blocks and hits himself and thinks its funny!

-Still finds time to snuggle with mommy and daddy (my favorite)

He is such a joy and an incredible blessing! I can't even begin to express the love we have for this little guy, he fills our hearts everyday!

Happy 1st Father's Day Dada

This year we got to celebrate Stephen's first Father's Day! Preston and I worked hard to decorate and get everything just right for the special day. We started the morning with daddy's favorite breakfast, then met the family for a celebration for all of the daddy's. We spent the afternoon together, had some yummy cake and celebrated all of these great daddy's! We even got a chance to celebrate the newest soon-to-be daddy in the family...that's right Gene and Steph are expecting a little one!! Super fun news! Can't wait.

Since Stephen is the BEST daddy in the world Preston and I got some fun gifts to make daddy's day feel extra special. We got him an Aggie flag, a washer game for the pool, a bottle of Knob Creek, a photo album of pics of Preston and daddy from this year and a fun little book we made daddy together. I think he liked everything. =) We had a lot of fun and I think daddy's first Father's Day will be hard to beat!
