Ladies Man

Truer words have never been printed on a shirt . . . Just ask all the women at church!

Sleepy Joey

Now that the weather has turned cooler, Joey loves to take naps in front of the fireplace. His room gets pretty chilly, even during the day, so we don't mind him sleeping there (as long as he's not too close).

Joey's got lots of cute sweaters his Grandma made for him. Now that its finally cold we can actually break them out.

Bath Time Revisited

Now that Joey knows how to splash, he finds bath time lots more fun. Now I just have a problem with trying to convince him its time to come out!

Cereal Time

Joey tried cereal for the first time this past Thursday. He wasn't too sure what to think of it at first, but really likes it now. In fact, if you don't feed it to him fast enough, he starts to cry. It's hard to keep up with his appetite!

Please! I need privacy when I eat!

Meet the Mets

Brian is a HUGE Mets fan(even though they tend to blow the division title weeks before the end of the regular season). I, however, am a big Braves fan. We've been trying to figure out which team Joey will go for. As we live in North Carolina, I'll probably win. In an effort to help Brian out a little bit, Joey's grandparents gave Joey the most adorable Mets outfit.

Who could resist a Mets fan this cute?

Weekend Fun

Joey had lots of fun this past weekend hanging out with his Grandma, Grandpa, and Uncle Craig. He LOVES attention, and to be able to get it from five people at one time was right up his alley.

The weather has recently gotten much cooler, so Joey's had to wear more than his usual onsie. We've even had to break out jackets and sweaters for Joey when we take him outside. Of course, we think he's pretty adorable with them on.
The bear ears really make it!
And if you didn't think he could get any cuter, now here he is in a tobaggan.

Our State Fair is a Great State Fair

Yesterday we went to the NC State Fair. We all had lots of fun and actually managed to get our first picture of us all together as a family.
Of course NASCAR had to be involved in it somehow! Actually, it was more of the National Guard being involved. Anyway, as you can tell, Joey was asleep for a vast majority of our time there. All the excitement from seeing real live cows, ducks, and geese just wore him out! But we got some wonderful pictures so he can relive all the fun later.This is Joey and me at the lighthouse. Its near the old Grist Mill where you can get free hushpuppies! Joey was hoping for his first hushpuppy, but we didn't think he was quite old enough.We also were able to see Smokey the Bear. He would tell you hello when you walked up and wave at you if you waved back. He had a remarkably Southern accent for a forest ranger!
We knew Joey would want a picture beside Cookie Monster, since they have similar eating habits. The sun was a little too bright for Joey . . it's hard to nap with the sun shining in your eyes!We saw Clifford next . . . .Then a picture with the Cookie Monster AND Elmo.Next we went to the National Guard booth. We got this picture with the tank (incidentally the only picture we have from the fair with Joey awake) and the lovely family picture above. Next year Joey wants to do some pull-ups!We went to see the animals next and then Brian and I ate lots of fair food (hint to anyone with a fair headed their way . . . try the fried Reese's peanut butter cups). Lastly we went to see the botanical gardens. We were all VERY tired at this point (I was beginning to wish Brian could carry me around like this) so we decided to head back to the car.We were all very happy when we made it to the car and could drive home. But we had a wonderful time at the fair and hope we'll be able to make it next year from Charlotte.

Weekend at the Farm

We spent last weekend with my parents down in Mt. Olive. While Joey didn't get to see the pigs or chickens yet (he's still a little too young for all that), we did go to the Fall Festival at my mom's elementary school. He also got to see his Great Meana again, and meet his Great G-Daddy for the first time!

Tummy Time

Joey despises tummy time . . . . he's upset that he can't crawl yet. Usually it consists of him crying as he kicks his legs and then cries harder. BUT, as we were doing tummy time the other day, he actually looked pretty cute. And came really close to rolling over. I forget which way is supposed to come first (tummy to back or back to tummy) but I don't think he'll ever want to do back to tummy!

Air Joey!

Some of our friends with a baby about 3 months older than Joey gave us some Air Jordan Nike shoes. He's not a big fan of shoes just yet, but they do make him want to be like Mike! (I think he'll have to learn how to stand first, though). Smiling about all the 3-pointers he'll hit just as soon as he can pick up a basketball!

Notice his excellent head and back control . . . sure to be helpful when shooting free throws!

Here he flies in to dunk the ball
And its good!!! Air Joey wins the game!! You can probably see from the picture where we would want him to play (not UNC like Mike).
