Moseleys hair was really long and shaggy. He started doing the frat-boy head jerk to get it out of his eyes. Hilarious but probably not good for his eyes or neck :)

We woke up this morning and after Chambers ate and went back to sleep I sat Moseley on a barstool in front of our outdoor TV and went to work. It looks so much better and must feel better!

King of Pop

An homage to MJ on the back of a car in Mobile Monday. Reading it made my momma and I tear up and then we laughed thinking that this guy loved Michael a lot. At least more than the view from his rearview mirror!

My Two Boys

I am into matching the boys outfits right now. I made Chambers' john-john and Moseleys' shorts and just paired them with polo's they already had.

Houston, We Have Teeth!

Chambers, at 8 and a half months has his first two teeth! They had broken through when he woke up this morning. Moseley had 4 teeth at 6 months so I was wondering when (and if) he would get teeth. I truly had no idea he was even close until my friend Kirk pointed out that he was teething on Saturday. I may start calling Kirk the baby whisperer!

Sewanee, TN

We headed to Sewanee a few weeks ago to see my *cousin* Emily Rose de Juan get married. It was a very fun weekend. 

We headed up to Decatur on Friday afternoon to drop the kiddos off. That is right, we left them at home!! Then we continued on to Sewanee, TN where we stayed at Elizabeth Dotts' fabulous place on the bluff. The first night we ate with the Dotts family at the Monteagle Diner, a wonderful greasy spoon in Monteagle, TN. 

Then, Elizabeth, Kevin and I headed to an after-after-rehearsal party on Chastain Lake. Saturday, we had a brunch at the Monteagle Inn which had FABULOUS shrimp and grits. Then I headed with some of the bridesmaids to get hair done while Kevin, Staples, and Harris Oppenheimer helped load the libations for the wedding.

The wedding was that night at All Saints Chapel on the campus at Sewanee. Growing up Episcopalian, that church is the holy grail for us. It is gorgeous! 

**Side note: We drove Kevin's parents Beetle Bug up so we could leave our car equipped with the carseats with them. There is a bug in one of the stained glass windows so that was neat.**

The Reception was at the Sewanee Inn and had a fabulous Water Table. This is where they offer all kinds of juices such as Lavender infused Lemonade and Strawberry-Watermelon water. For those of you who don't know, I don't drink beer, ever. And I rarely drink anything else. I don't like the way it tastes so this was my kind of addition. I must have had 7 or so glasses of the lemonade :) The food there was also wonderful. 

Some Family pics

Sunday we woke up and spent the morning and lunch with Staples and Nancy. That was wonderful. When we left to get the boys I was soooo excited to be able to hold them. I had missed them so much.

Ye Olde Tuck Inn

A few weeks  ago we headed to Atlanta for a few days to stay with our friends, the Tucks. Katie and Andy have a little boy who is just under a year older than Moseley (Sam) and a little girl who is 16 months old (Lily). We also got to see Lee Engwall/Lee Buffington and their new precious girl, Laura. And of course, Uncle Steven (Chambers godfather). 

Sam and Moseley play really well together and Sam is so smart. Moseley always comes away knowing more than before. 

Lily is just adorable and I love holding her :) We decided that Lily needed a real baby to push around in her stroller. 

Notice how Chambers (8mo) is the same size as Lily (16mo)

Morning picture fun!

Moseley looks more and more like my brother every day.

Sleepy Kevin, and no he isn't naked you just can't see his PJs :)

8 months old today!

I can't believe my baby is 8 months old. 

Things he does - 
1) Mastered sitting up at 6 months so now he can sit himself up from laying on his tummy. He can also reach over very far to grab things without falling over. 

2) Not crawling. I am so ok with this. He has gotten on his hands a knees several times so he is strong enough but has no desire to be fully mobile. He also skootches around on his tummy in all directions.

3) Holds his own bottle, even though they are few and far between.

4) Does not pay attention when nursing. Even though I will nurse to a year, he just makes it take so long b/c he wants to see what is going on around him. 

5) Eats 1 meal a day (around dinnertime). Usually some cereal and homemade baby food. I made all of Moseley's food and have loved making Chambers as well.

6) Grabs at everything! Necklaces, toys, food. He is fast and very precise. He can grab the pendant off my necklace before i have even finished picking him up. 

7) Eats Puffs and Cheerios off his tray. He is very good at the pincer grip and getting food straight to his mouth. 

There are tons more that I am forgetting but for now I must go nap... 

8) Oh and he talks non-stop. Lots of Mamamama and Dadadadada and blowing raspberries.
