Ho Ho Ho

Tucker went to visit Santa Claus today. As you can tell from the picture, he really didn't know what to think about this Santa business. He didn't cry at all, but wasn't too excited about being there either. He did seem to be a little more excited about the elf who made him a balloon doggie while we waited in line.

9 Months Old

Tucker waiting at the doctor's office

Our baby is 9 months old already! We can't believe how fast he's growing up. Tucker went for his 9 month check up on Monday and he is perfect-the doctor said so! He weighed in at 18lbs 10oz and was 27" tall. He didn't have to have any shots at this appointment (Yay) but just had to have his finger pricked. At this point, Tucker enjoys crawling like a pro and pulling up on things. He has a habit of making a mad dash for Ares' bowls if they are the floor at the same time he is. With his new found mobility, Tucker passionately dislikes being made to stay still, which makes for challenging diaper changes. He recently said "dada" and "mom" for the first time, but he doesn't repeat these performances very often, yet. We've also discovered that Tucker has a small allergic reaction to cinnamon (it gives him a very, very rosy face).

Thanksgiving 2009

This year we spent Thanksgiving in Oklahoma and were able to see both sides of the family. We started out in Maud visiting the O'Daniel's and then went to Edmond visit the Miller clan. We have so much to be thankful for this year, our health, our family and especially our little bundle of joy Tucker.I couldn't believe the weather was so perfect on Thanksgiving Day!

Tucker tried to help make pies, but no one would let him near the ovens!

I guess Tucker wasn't impressed with the food on the table and decided to see how the dog food tasted instead.

Somehow I managed to not get any pictures of the Miller family while we were in Edmond. We stayed at Staci & Jeff's new house that they had moved into the day before Thanksgiving. Sounds like a hectic time to move and then host Thanksgiving the next day, but the way I see it, it was perfect! They had all the free labor of their family helping to unpack!
