Cousins, Part 2

Murph and Allie Harris were so excited to see each other!

What sweet cousins!

I guess the old saying, "You can pick your friends, you can pick your nose, but you can't pick your friend's nose," is not always true!

Allie Harris relaxing with her feet up on the stroll...

Murph is quite good at relaxing as well...

Putting our tootsies in the baby pool!

I wonder what in the world they are saying here!

Walker and I trying our hand with 2 babies!

Scooting away!

Loving the big cube at DeeDee's house!

We had a great Memorial Day weekend!

Fun with my Cousin!

Murphy's cousin, Allie Harris was visiting this weekend and they had so much fun playing, going to the pool, and riding side by side in their strollers! Here they are playing at DeeDee's house! Here is a really sweet pic of Allie Harris! I loved holding her- she is so light! What a little sweetie!
Murphy and Daddy in the baby pool! DeeDee took some pics of both babies at the pool, so I'll post those when I get them! Murphy really liked it even though it was pretty cold!

Have a Great Summer, H.G.Hill 6th Graders!

Here are some recent pics of Murph to get you through the summer! Have fun and be safe this summer! If you have a home computer you are welcome to look at our blog to keep up with Ms. Murphy's grandson over the break. We have lots of fun things planned! Below are some pics of Murphy rolling and scooting around. He has so much fun exploring our living room floor!

"Look guys, my daddy put my new swingset together!"
"Getting ready to slide down!"
" It's raining today, so we have to play in the garage!"
"I love it when my Daddy tosses me up high!"
Here is Murphy talking to Macy before bathtime. He loves to stand by the tub and watch the water go in!

We went to a cookout Sunday night. Murphy loves playing with Kellie and Alex. They are so funny!
Alex getting Murph with "the claw"!
The only serious face of the night. I'm sure he's trying to find food in the baby bag!:)
Thanks for checking our blog, 6th grade! See you next year!
Meghan, Walker, and Murphy:)

Our Big Turkey!

We have some good news- Murph is off of the liquid iron! We went to the doctor today for his iron check and he had made a lot of improvement. We also had them check his weight and he is 21 pounds. (Yes, you read that right!:) What a big ole turkey!!! "Hey guys, look at my balloon from Party City!"
"Daddy, I need that right now and I will twist out of your arms if I have to!"
This is a great shot of the top teeth- we will be ready for a steak in no time!!!
The stance again- he has to have a wide base to hold all that weight up top!
He played with this balloon all day long!!! We couldn't find a WonderPets balloon, so we went with the next best thing- The Backyardigans!

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day! We had a great one! Here is a family photo after lunch today! (The apron Murphy is wearing was Big Will's! It really showcases those fat turkey legs-too bad it doesn't really show in the pic!:) A shot of Murph and all of his girls- LinLin, Mommy, and DeeDee!
This is from the other day- He really wants to crawl and is getting up on all fours and rocking a lot, and then-splat!! He is still a rolling machine and gets where he wants to be, so he's happy anyway!:)
Peeking over the bumper pads in his crib- a fun new trick!

And, we're up! We have to move the mattress down THIS week!!!
We have always thought that Murph takes after his Aunt Abby- bubbly personality, never meets a stranger, is quite brave and high-energy, etc., but he takes it to a whole new level here! If we had let him stay in that position too long he would have been in a full split! (For those of you who don't know, Abby is a great gymnast and cheered for Ole Miss!:)
My favorite part of the day today- he wore himself out and fell asleep on my shoulder. This is a rare occurrence for him! What a great mother's day gift!

Busy Boy

Murph has been a busy boy so far this week! Here are some (well, a lot of) pics from his latest adventures...
We were in Nashville Sunday afternoon through Monday afternoon. Here he is playing with LinLin Monday morning after breakfast! He loves to have help standing up! Banging some kitchen utensils together. He loves anything that makes a loud noise- including his own voice!:)
Taking a break for some much needed chewing time- I can't decide if he thinks he's a puppy or a monkey!
We went to Palmer Park behind Belle Meade Plantation with Heather's and Jennifer's kids. Here are the big boys, Bo, Hutson, and Hagen, playing in the creek.
Murph had to watch from the stroller most of the time, but I did dip his toes in before we left!
I love Hagen here- pure joy is written all over his body!:)
Murphy and his newest buddy, Mary Harbin (16 months). She was so sweet!
Murphy loves to ride on his Daddy's shoulder like a "sack of taters"!
"I love to get all of the toys out of my basket..."
"You caught me!!!"

Murphy and Miller- his favorite playmate!
This is why I sometimes think he thinks he's a monkey- he loves to put his toes in his mouth while eating! I have wiped green beans, etc. off of his toes many times!:)
Murphy and Miller are so helpful in the laundry room-haha!
"Yummy basket!"

This is a short video of Murphy and Walker making a little band. Notice I am behind the camera- Murph and the other babies find a beat before me in Kangaroo kids!:)
