Wild Boy!

Murphy has dropped his morning nap, which has led to longer afternoon naps. As a result, he is wild and ready to play when he wakes up! I think he "talked" for 3 hours straight tonight! Here he is playing in his ball pit.
This is a video of what Murphy and Daddy thought would be fun to do while I was cooking dinner. I kept hearing Walker cracking up, so I looked over at them and this is what I saw. He must have done this 20 times before dinner!

A Trip to the Zoo

It was a gorgeous day on Friday, so we took advantage of it and took Murphy to the zoo. He loved the carousel. The man said he was riding "Eat 'em up! Eat 'em up!" the cheetah! Murphy survived, unscathed, but the bull in the petting zoo had other plans for the Murph! He smacked him in the face with his big tail!!:( It must have hurt- he has a little bruise on his cheek!) Talking to Mr. Camel- we'll save the camel ride for next year!
Touching the llama's nose...
and his back!
Murphy enjoyed the animals, but loved all of the pretty flowers- he is a man who pays attention to detail!
Here are a couple of other pics from this week. Here he is getting ready to go to our music class, Kangaroo Kids. He is in the "bouncers" class and loves his teacher, Miss Julie!
Playing during the UT/Auburn game

Murphy loves to play with SiSi (Simonne) and LOVES it when she tickles his belly!:)

Fun Weekend!

It was a really fun weekend, minus the loss to Florida! Here are some pics we took!
Murphy "tailgating" in his PJ's in the driveway before we left to go down to the game! He got to have a fun day with LinLin!
Alex and Mr. Bright checking out the line-ups pre-game
Simonne, me, and Julia all smiles (before going into the game!)haha
After the game at Roosters!
On Sunday, Mindy, Brad, and Riley came to visit! The kiddos had so much fun playing, although, I'm sure Riley was wondering if Murphy was a baby or a wild animal!
Riley really liked Miller, except when he tried to kiss her! Look how cute she is turning her head away! Miller really liked her, too!
It was so wild with two active babies and a big dog!:)

"Hey Murph, is this grass tickling your toes, too?"
"Let's share some grass!"
"I like playing with you, Riley! We both know what it feels like to be almost bald!"
"Whoaaah! I've fallen and I can't get up!"

Murphy has been cruising around the coffee table for a few months now, and has been taking a few steps at a time, but yesterday afternoon and especially this morning it all clicked for him! While still a bit unsteady, he is now walking across the room! Here is a quick video!

Happy Birthday, Lilly!

Today we went to Lilly's birthday party! We had so much fun! Here is a pic of the sweet birthday girl enjoying her smash cake! Murphy really enjoyed the pretty pink cupcakes and ice cream!
Murphy also got to hang out with Lilly's Aunt Callie, who is also his cousin, Allie Harris' godmother!
Murph back at home playing on his sugar high!:) He loved getting to wear one of my cousin, John David's, outfits that "Om" (Gram) made 21 years ago! Thanks for letting us use it, RiRi!:)
This is a shot of Murphy reading in his UT church clothes- yes, we even smock Power T's in Big Orange Country!
Pushing his favorite birthday toy, the bulldozer from Alli Dobbs!

Hanging out in the pack and play before dinner with "B" and "white lovie"! He is a child after his mother's heart with the new loyalty to these two blankies!:)
