November Happenings

This past weekend I took Renner on a little outing Saturday. We first met up with one of my family friends from Hardin, Jon and his girlfriend Bri and her son Kayden at Chuy's. Lindsey met us there and we all had a nice lunch together.

After lunch Lindsey, Renner & I went to the Hardin HS football playoff game at Turner Stadium in Humble. After just about 30 minutes of being there, not knowing anyone and feeling out of place we decide to leave. So, before we left I called my brother because he was at the game but sitting on the other side. So he talked me into walking down the length of stadium to see if I knew anyone. That's when I ran into my good friend from high school, Morika. We chatted with her for about 10 minutes and then left.

Then Renner and I went home to rest. A little while later Erik calls to tell me that he and his girlfriend and her daughter were going to Olive Garden if we wanted to meet up with them. So Renner & I jump in the car and head to Olive Garden for a yummy dinner.

If you are wondering where Daddy was during all of this, he was at a UH football game with his brothers. Mike's been so busy with his football season at work that he hasn't had time to enjoy quality time with his brothers and his much loved Cougar football.

Some updates on Renner:

1. He's now clapping his hands

2. He has found the door stop. He likes hitting it and making it go "BOINGGGGG" and then clapping.

3. He likes drinking out of big boy cups.

Last but not least for today, Renner's Gran surprised us Friday with doing an art and craft project with Renner. They finger painted and created Renner's first turkey. It was so cute and I have to go have it laminated! Happy Thanksgiving y'all!

So busy

I know, it's been way too long since I've posted anything. The only explanation I have for the reason why I haven't posted anything is due to our little busy body. He never gives me time to sit down, download pics and write. When I try to get on the computer he cruises over and wants to touch all of the buttons.

Now on to the topic of little Renner. He's now 9 1/2 months old. When he went to the doctor for his 9 month check up he was 20.1 lbs and 29 1/2 inches long. That's 50% percentile for weight and 90% for height. He's definitely growing like a weed.

He's so busy now and all over the place. He loved Halloween and was dressed like "Puss In Boots" from Shrek. I took him to Mrs. Libby Boyce's house then the Longhofer's house, by Ling's to see Mimi and Aunt Paige and then to Daddy's football game. He was exhausted from his first Halloween.

We had a fall bash at my school for all of the kids so I decided to take Renner to it. Poor thing is so exhausted around 5pm that he acted like a zombie.

Gran has done a great job of rearranging the living room for us to give Renner more room to roam. Well, one evening Daddy decided to climb into one of Renner's play centers and got stuck. We were laughing so hard.

Renner is starting to try a lot of different types of food. We took him to Chuy's for Mimi's birthday lunch and one of the waiters brought him a sherbert push-pop. He LOVED that! We went out and bought him some for at home.

This weekend Renner spent time out in Hardin with his Gran & Pa because Daddy had a football game and Mommy was sick. So when I was getting him ready for the country I put him in a camo outfit. He was ready for his trip! (Yes that is a shiner you see on his cheek! He fell on one of his toys and bruised his little cheek bone.) Now I'm waiting for Daddy to return home with our little country boy! Next up...Thanksgiving! Gobble Gobble
