My little tumbleweed.

Jack has been able to roll over for a long time, but he rarely chooses to do it. When he does, he will only roll from his back to his stomach. Well, you can imagine my amazement when I walk back into the room and Jack is about 3 feet from where I left him.

For those of you that have heard me complain about one salary and two mortgages, we have officially sold the condo! We closed on it this morning. A very nice couple paid cash for it and gave it to their son and his fiance. They are about to leave for their house they just built in downtown Breckenridge, CO. Oh, the life of the rich. Haha.

Anyway, it feels like a burden lifted from us.

Auburn Beats Bama, again!!

It took every last bit of effort for us to make it to the Cofield's for the Iron Bowl. We were so worn out from our 5 hour drive home from Andalusia that we really wanted to stay home and watch the game in our PJs. But, this game was way too important! Jack got to see some of the game. He stayed up until about 7:45pm. Then, he spent the night in Karsen Cofield's crib. Amazingly, none of our yelling and screaming woke him up.

Playing with karsen

We are definitely getting an exersaucer for Christmas. He loved it!

Jack was "man enough" to hang out in the pink Bumbo


Jack had a wonderful first Holiday. We spent 3 nights in Andalusia. He enjoyed spending time with relatives.

He continues to prove that he is a "great baby".... There was a bad wreck on the way home and after sitting on the Interstate for about 30 minutes we turned around and went back to Greenville to take Highway 31. We had to stay on 31 all the way to Prattville. It took us 5 hours to get home!!! Jack only complained one time and that was about 30 minutes south of Bham. He just hung out and played with his Freddy.

Aunt Jennifer bought Jack some yellow ducky slippers

Jack put on a nice shirt for dinner with the Rabrens

Jack vs. the Cats

Jason calls me into the den and he has Jack in his lap and Jack is petting Dugan. Dugan was a little nervous, but let this go on for a couple of minutes. Then, Jason sets Jack in the corner of the couch. Sam is sitting above him and he reaches up to pet her. Well, Sam has a lot less patience than Dugan. I ran to get the camera and when I came back, Sam started whacking Jack on the head (with her clawless paw). Jason hits Sam and we both freak out. Over Jason and I yelling at Sam, we hear the loudest laugh Jack has ever made. He thought Sam trying to maul him was hilarious. Below, are the pictures.

Notice Jason's hand in the process of spanking Sam

Jack's baptism Sunday was wonderful. He did great, during the service. Jason and I had planned who would take him out, when he got whiny, but he just fell asleep during the Sermon. Lunch at the house was great. We had a lot of family come over and even some "almost" family.

Jack fell asleep, during the Sermon.

Listening to Auburn beat Tennessee Tech

He was a lot happier on the beach, when the sun was setting
