Hey blue eyes!
You are just the funnest little man!
I find so much joy just watching you play with your toys - you smile and talk to yourself... How did you get so grown up?
One new found friend this week is your yellow lovey giraffe, and we have lovingly named him jojo.
You love to squeeze him and bite his head - and he doesn't mind it one bit!
You love to watch us eat - which is scary for mom as it means you might be ready to try solid foods soon!
You always grab for our bananas! I'm not sure if it's the yellow color, the smell or baby's intuition ... But you know they are something you like!
We let you have a little taste and you sucked on that banana until it was nice and slobbery!
This week you went on your first hunt!
Our buck hunt continued, and boy oh boy we got one buddy!
Mom, dad and Kerry went out hunting on Queens Crown in Carey.
Mom and Kerry were hunting while dad was carrying you.
We hiked and hiked and hiked and never really saw anything worth shooting - just some smaller young bucks.
Since dad was carrying you for about 5 hours, I told him I would carry you down to the truck as we were headed out.
And you know what? On our hike out we ran into a buck!
This guy was coming up the draw right towards us!
Momma was so shocked to see him, she barely had enough time to unbuckle the carrier, set you down on the dirt (sorry) and shoot him!
You had your earmuffs on and didn't hear a thing. Although you did cry - you were pretty upset at being left on the ground! (Sorry again, but i was right next to you and picked you up right after!)
So we called dad, he hiked on over to us and found our deer!
We were even more lucky in that I shot him not 50 yards from a blm road!
So we were able to drive up close to him and load him on the truck. Dad did all the work tho... Drug him to the road, loaded him, gutted him at home, skinned and cleaned him!
Since you love to be outside, I'm pretty sure you enjoyed the hunt!
This week you also went on a horse ride with momma!
She was trying to help dad move some cows and went along for the ride.
Momma can't ride too hard with you attached to her, so she wasn't much help.. But it was very nice to be horseback with the best little buddy! You slept most the time, so I don't think you minded it much either!
You are still a bit little to be able to see out of your carrier, so I'm sure as you get bigger you'll enjoy things more as you'll be able to look around more easily.
We went to town again this week and you were the pumpkin king.
We took the rest of the week easy as we had done so much in the beginning of the week!
We spent a lot of time playing with our playmat and exersaucer.
You're still loving bath time - and momma and dad sure do enjoy your shrills and giggles that accompany splash time!
You are getting bigger and bigger, and I just don't know if I can stand how cute you are.
I love you to pieces!
Love you always little man!
