Christmas & New Years!

Ok, so these are a little out of order but I'll tell where each are from and so on. Haha. Hope you like!This is what happens when you don't put a diaper on right. It goes through the diaper, through the onesie, through the p.j.'s and right on to dad's shirt! Even with his ears sticking straight out he is the cutest kid ever! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this picture!Sitting in his bumbo seat that he got from Great Grandma Mona and playing with his Elmo Live that he got from Grandma Brenda. Elmo and I were having a heart to heart. This is the perfect picture of why you don't give young parents toys that talk or move or anything along those lines. OH MY GOD!!!! LET IT BE KNOW THAT DEREK IS FEEDING THE BABY!!!! The two loves of my life. He totally has his daddy's dimples.

Our cute little family on Christmas at Great Grandma Mona and Great Grandpa Bill's house
Justin! This is Derek's cousin Ashely's husband. This was his first Christmas with the fam in Jackson.
Whitney had a little bit too much fun on Christmas.
I love Ashley's p.j.'s! They are SO cute.
Stratton was smiling SO big when Ashley was playing with him. I wonder why... Again, I can't figure out why he was smiling so much...hummm?
Christmas at Great Grandma Marges house with Great Grandma B too.
This picture is such a great picture.
Great Grandma B is such a sweet heart. I love her so much.
This is over at Great Grandma Maxine's house. Uncle G was gettin his baby time in.
The Pantera (a rock band Derek likes) onesie that Grandma Brenda got Stratton. Back to Grandma Marges house. Haha. This is the outfit that Aunt Casey got Stratton. He loves it! So does mommy. Derek got a tool chest from mom and dad this year and he LOVES it! Finally a place for all his dang tools! Best present ever! Little Man is teething SO bad. Poor little guy. :( I think he likes what he got... Yep, he does. Grandma Kathie was reading his new book to him.Aunt C and Uncle Marcus got Stratton "Where the Wilds Things Are" and an ornament to match!
Derek was trying out his new ear muffs. I think they fit. I got an eye mask. I think it makes me look sexy. Great Grandma Marge"s tree was so pretty!

Grandpa Calvin making his appearance on my blog finally! As Santa. Uncle Marcus is so silly! Stratton loves his new bumbo seat. He sits on the couch with dad and watches 24. I like how he spreads out his toesies! This has to be the cutest kid on earth! Our first Christmas tree! Yes, that is all the presents we had under our tree this year. Derek played Santa. This is how you can tell we have a colicy baby. You don't get any sleep but still manage to function. It's still a cute picture of our first family Christmas. hah! Derek got me a video camera that I love! He got me a Nintendo DS too. New Years at Garret and Stephanie's house! Happy New Years!
This is Garrets baby. Marley!

More pictures of Stratton!

I know it's been a really long time since I've posted and I'm super sorry. I've been super busy everyday after I get off work so it's been hard to keep up with the posts. Anyway, Stratton has started sleeping in his pack and play at the end of our bed now and he hates it! I would put him in his crib but he only sleeps for like 2 hours at a time and it's just easier to put him in our room and close to where I sleep. He's still pretty colicy and still cries more often then not. He's getting better though. We went to church for the first second time this Sunday and he did really well. We went with Grandma Kathie, Great Grandma Marge and Great Grandpa John to Church on Abbey. The same church that Derek and I got married in. It's also the church that I grew up in. He did way better than I thought he would. He didn't even cry once. This week Derek is going to have his first full day with Stratton. Our baby sitter is having to go to STL for her husbands surgery this week on Thursday and Friday. My mom is going to watch him Thursday and Derek gets to watch him Friday. I might have to take a half day on Friday. Haha. Anyway, I know you all are wanting to look at pictures of the little man so here ya go! This is our friend Party Nate. He and Stratton were chillin on the couch.
Stratton loves bath time. He splashes and kicks and gets his mommy wet. :)
Stratton loves his Grandma Kathie. She is such a big help!
It wouldn't be an album of Stratton without one picture of him screaming. Haha.
This is his new best friend. The duck! He chews on it's feet haha.
He's such a cutie!
Note all the drool on his shirt. Yes, we're teething.
More drool on himself.
Hangin out with dad on the couch.
This is Derek's favorite thing to put Stratton in. It says dad's team. How cute!
I know this picture isn't very good but it's one of my favorite. Right after I took this picture Stratton threw up all over Derek.
Our cute little family.
Touching our toes to our nose!
Yes. He has a bald spot and yes it's getting worse.
Giddy Up Little Dude!
I think he is the cutest thing I have ever seen.
Gettin sugar from momma.
and Daddy.
Peace dude!
I love this picture.
He hates tummy time but he's getting stronger and pushes with his feet now.
Getting water to drink because his drainage is so bad.
