4th of July


These two pictures could possibly be my all time favorites!  Both of my boys.  My cup runneth over. 

  • Playing on the jet ski
  • Checking things out with Papa
  • Life jacket, check, puff, check!
  • Bathtime with Daddy
I know I'm a little late on this post but when you take a billion pictures it's hard to narrow them down!  So, obviously we spend our 4th of July weekend at Lake Houston with my parents.  Gordon and I both had to work on the 5th (and needed a babysitter since daycare was closed) and my dad was itching to get the jet skis out on the water so they headed our way.  None of us had ever been to Lake Houston so we were all pleasantly surprised.  Honestly, it's become one of my new favorite places.  It's not like your typical lake....lots of people, tons of boats, rough water.  It was such a quiet, peaceful and beautiful place.  The water was perfect for jet skiing!  As Gordon and I rode around together one afternoon I couldn't help but wonder how some people don't believe in God. 
Little buddy even got to go on the jet ski!  Since the lake wasn't crowded we drove him around for 10 minutes in the morning and again in the evening since he loved it so much.  William gets a little startled by loud noises so I was worried he'd just cry.  As soon as we got going (not very fast) and the wind was blowing in our face a little he just smiled.  He smiled the entire time.  He is a true water baby!
As you can see in the pictures above.....he had a little emotional breakdown.  He was fighting a cold the entire weekend and the 4th of July was his worst day.  Nobody got to sleep through the night all weekend long.  I know I say a lot how good of a baby William is.  Maybe I should clarify.....all babies are good!!  It's just that some babies are more fussy, have more gas pains, are colicky, don't sleep as well as others, get more ear infections, require more food and more often.  The list goes on and on.  I guess William is just easier than I expected him to be (I prepared myself for the worst)!  But, believe me, he has his moments.  ....we wouldn't trade a single one of them!
