Crawford can now saw the three words MaMa...DaDa...BaBa.. In no particular order. If we do not pay him attention he will start screaming and talking but the minute we turn around and look at him he stops. He has long in depth conversations with Molly usually saying BaBa a million times. He usually says Mama when he is really sleepy or is crying (go figure, I think his daddy taught him that) He is getting good at saying Da.Da. Not sure where he learned to scream but if you tell him No he just starts laughing! I can't imagine what our next restaurant experience will be like.

Here are 7 Fun Facts About Crawford
1. He can sit up
2. He is become really Vocal
3. He will be crawling anytime, for now he uses rolling to get where he needs to go
4. He still does not have any teeth but I am pretty sure they are well on there way
5. He loves bath time now that he can get in the Big Tub!
6. He is very afraid of loud noises
7. He is the best baby ever!!!!!!

Jacob, Crawford and I took a trip to Concord Mills on Saturday. I know it is hard to believe but yes Jacob did go! We all needed clothes, well Crawford of course did not need any but we both managed to get him a few outfits while we were there. Of Course, I go for Polo and his daddy goes for Bass Pro outfits. Crawford left with more outfits than we did. So of course Crawford has a stinky diaper while we are there and of course yours truly is the one that changes it. Well Crawford is really afraid of loud noises these days. He must have really sensitive ears! I had no idea the toilet flushing would send him overboard but it did! First of all, I hate changing him in public places b/c they usually are just so gross. Rather than go all the way to the car I decided it would be OK to change him in Bass Pro Shops b/c there bathrooms seem pretty nice. This was before I knew Crawford was afraid of the toilet flushing! So we go to change his diaper and I get him all situated! By the way, he is in to trying to turn over while I change his diaper which is just horrible when you have him on one of those changing tables. So while I am changing this stinky diaper there are at least 5 women in the bath room and they all must have flushed at the same time. Crawford starts shaking and screaming as loud as he can while still trying to turn over, which was making it impossible to change is diaper not to mention I was paranoid he was going to be covered in poop. Then to top things off someone decided to come into the stall right beside the changing table and take care of business. This sent me over the top and I could not keep the laughter in. Lets just say it was not very quiet. I know that it is completely natural but I myself like a little privacy and would never have chose to get in a stall right next to where people are standing. Let's just say this was the longest and worst diaper change! It's Jacob's turn next time. He said there are not changing stations in Men's restrooms. I don't believe him! Nice Try Jacob!

7 Months Old

Another Month has gone by. Crawford is now 7 months old!! We can't believe it. He is now sitting up without support. He still tumbles over if he reaches for something or turns his head but he is doing so good. He can now take baths in the big bath tub and I know he is Happy about that. He was getting too big for the little bath tub!
This weekend was a lot of fun. Bailee, Kaitlyn and Annie watched Crawford while I did wedding stuff with Jennifer and the girls this weekend in Charlotte. It worked out perfect b/c they live in the neighboorhood where Jennifer had her reception. I think they all had a great time and I know they took such good care of Crawford! It was fun spending time with the girls getting ready for Jennifer's big day! I brought my camera but am very sad that I do not have any pictures of Crawford with Bailee, Kaitlyn and Annie or from the wedding. Hopefully someone took some pictures at the wedding and will send them to me!
Here are some pictures of Crawford from Last week.

The Pictures arenot in order. I could not figure out how to move them and I did not feel like re-downloading them.

This has been the first and last time he has done this. I think he would rather sit back and relax and have his Mommy or Daddy hold it. But it sure did help in the morning before work!

Sitting up for the First time

Monday, April 7, 2008

We had a great weekend! Crawford had his first trip to South Park Mall. He loved it. We met Jennifer and her mom and Kelly for lunch at the Cheese Cake Factory. He was so good! It was great catching up. We will all be together soon for Jennifer's wedding in a few weeks! We had a great day but were very tired when we got home.

Crawford can now say his m's very well. So now when he cries or is tired it sounds like he is saying mama. I know he probably has no idea what he is saying but it still feels great to hear him say it. I heard him say it on Saturday night, but was not positive. Then on Sunday while I was at the store, Jacob heard him say it several times. He is still not sitting up, he is close but still falls over after a few seconds. He travels these days by rolling. He rolls clear across the room in no time! We can't take our eyes off of him for a second.

Crawford has so many toys but we always end up playing with the same ones, so I empty his toy basket down stairs so he could see all that he had. He seemed a little overwhelmed. He wanted to hold all of them at once or should I say he wanted to put all of them in his mouth at once.

Below are some pictures from this weekend!
