Looking back at 2009

2009 has blessed us beyond words.

Our new house is (finally) done!

And Reese enjoyed the last days before becoming a big sister.

It's a boy!

Welcome Cru Joseph Buchman

My lucky charms.

Cru's first Easter

Cru's first 4th

Vail, CO - first family trip accompanied by Aunt Cheyna

Reese turns 3!

Cru's becoming even more of an ornery little boy.

Our first trip to Vegas

for Ty and Audrey's wedding

We're not in Kansas anymore!

Cru learned to crawl on his hands and knees instead of army crawling.

We have a lot to be thankful for.

We wish you a Merry Christmas!

I couldn't have asked for a better year. I can't imagine what 2010 will bring.....

Happy New Year!

10 months

Yes, we had a lot going on this past weekend, but no, we did not forget that little man turned 10 months old.

10 months! Wow, I better get movin' on party plans.

Cru at 10 months:
  • is still long and lean and now wearing 12 month clothes
  • crawling everywhere
  • 8 teeth (4 top, 4 bottom)
  • his favorite room in the house is Reese's room, which is a giant choking hazard!
  • back to eating baby food, although prefers the real stuff. His favorites are puffs, Ritz crackers, and bread with jelly.
  • still takes 2 naps a day
  • still doesn't sleep in
  • loves light sockets and puts absolutely everything in his mouth (total opposite of Reese)
  • started doing this new stance where he gets on his hands and feet and puts his butt up in the air, kinda like a girl trying to do a push up. Don't know what's up with that.
  • he's a dancer!
  • he's got this out-of-control hair that sticks up everywhere, but I love it!

His bashfulness and boyish ways melt my heart.

And so does that smile.

I just love him so!

Happy 10 months, Bubba!

The day after Christmas Festivities

Usually, after we open presents at home Christmas morning, we head to Chet's parent's house. However, this year we had to celebrate the day after because Aunty Chancey got stranded in KC due to the blizzard-like weather.

We're so happy she finally made it.

Quick pic before presents.

Now that's a tutu!

Cru wasn't exactly thrilled

but soon got into it. (who cares about the clothes)

A worm you can train! Ha!

Love this outfit....thanks Chancey!

A double jogger just like Mommy's!

He just woke up so he wasn't thrilled.

However, someone else was.

Reese opened all of her presents a little too fast, so she helped everyone else.

Where's that going, Daddy? The garage?!

Reese said the heck with you guys and moved onto her stocking.

She was smart because it was loaded with goodies.

Smitten over Uncle Caid.

Cru was still waking up when it was stocking time.

So guess who helped?

Grandma and Grandpa's turn.

After presents, chow time!

Good times! Reese was tweezing Grandma's hair.

Thank you Grandma and Grandpa for a full day of fun! We love you!
