Crawford Caught His First Fish!

Tonight we went over to Jacob’s parents house for a cookout for Aunt Casey’s brother Chip. Crawford borrowed Casey’s nieces fishing pole (which is a pink princess one) and he caught 2 fish! I am not sure he knew what to think. He would not put the pole down and he would not get near the fish!

Aunt Casey and Uncle Ryan helping Crawford fish!

We had no idea that Crawford would already like fishing so much….so Pop Pop is off to get him a fishing pole tomorrow! I know Crawford can’t wait to fish again!

22 Months

We are having so much fun at 22 Months! Crawford is such a ham and he knows it! He definitely coming more and more out of his shell.He is putting more words together and his forming 2 & 3 word sentences. :-) Eat Mama, Eat Dada, No Mama, No Dada, No dog, bye truck, hey truck, mine jeep, my night night, thank you pop pop, eat neigh, draw mama, my draw, my bike, dada truck, my truck, bye truck…..are a few of his latest sentences! He constantly talks around Jacob and I, sometimes getting really frustrated when he can’t exactly tell us what he wants. He does a good job of pointing and crying until we frantically figure it out!  He is starting to learn the alphabet and counts to 3. He still LOVES to cuddle with Mommy! Every night and morning he snuggles up with me and rubs my hair! He cries if I try to get up to get ready to work! He loves drawing on anything and everything (I learned this the hard way). He absolutely would rather be outside than anywhere else. He loves his jeep and bike! He loves to play with molly even though Molly doesn’t feel the same! He pulls her tail which she hates. If Crawford is near the door Molly will not come inside. I have to get Crawford away before she will even consider coming in.

Below are a few of his favorite toys

We do not go far with out Thomas! Often times he wants to take him to sleep! It’s amazing to me house fast they become attach to things.


He loves to play with his golf clubs…he has the set below and a real set that Pop Pop got him!


He loves to play with his tee ball set. He got the one below for his birthday last year. It’s great for his age! It came from target. It blows up so everything is soft. So when he tries to bop me on the head it doesn’t hurt!

21lsFg%2BJuPL__SL500_AA250_  The three men with this set…go everywhere with his. Crawford calls them “Hat” and he wants all 3. He goes around yelling “hat..hat…hat”51SjtosHnML__SL500_AA280_

Jeep….enough said, you can tell from our previous post….he is in love with this thing. I plan on putting a video up soon of him driving!  pTRU1-4025068reg These are just a few of his favorites!

I say it every month…but these 22 months have been the best months of our life! Crawford brings so much joy to us and everyone he is around! He is loved so much! He has taught us so much about life in his short time with us! A day does not go by that he doesn’t make us laugh!

Going to the horse farm….

After Skylar’s birthday party we took off to meet Jacob’s parents in Denton, NC to to see some horses. I changed Crawford into his Camouflage  Polo (this is the one and only piece of camo I have ever bought him)! I figure this way he is still a little preppy?? We put on his cowboy boots and he was ready to go! He ran around yelling “Neigh…Neigh”!DSC_0191 DSC_0197 DSC_0206 DSC_0207

We had to leave Skylar's birthday party early, so Crawford missed out on the yummy cake! Aunt Casey made him Cup Cakes to make up for it! I think it worked! Thanks Casey!

DSC_0257 Below is a picture of the horses here in Winston at Jacob’s Parents….the one in the middle is Jacob’s!


Skylar turns 2!

Skylar turns two and let me tell you it was Hot….Hot….Hot!!! He had a Truck Theme! We had  a great time! All of the kids had Hard Hats! Crawford loved his! Below are a few pictures from the party!

Driving…Driving and More Driving!


Crawford loves to Drive….his jeep…his bike….and his tractor! He Can drive so good with no help at all! He can turn, put it in reverse, and weave around anything. We are surprised he can drive so good! I think he already drives better than his dad!

Beach Pictures Part II

Crawford has so much fun on the Beach. We were not sure how he would be. It seems like just a few months ago he was scared of everything and now he is not scared of ANYTHING! He LOVED the water! He Loved the rides! The only thing he didn’t like was stopping to sit at a restaurant and eat! He would not sit still for a second.


It doesn’t get better than taking  a nap on the Beach! DSC_0005

Watch Out! Crawford and Caleb are driving! They had a great time playing together! Caleb is SO SWEET! He helped Crawford do whatever he wanted to do and loved pushing him in his stroller! I wish the bar was not blocking his sweet little face!
