Vacation, crawling and new teeth!

Its been a while since I've posted anything new, so this will just be a "catch-all" post. First, Jake is crawling! He started crawling a few weeks ago, but I was too busy chasing him to blog about it! He's also started pulling up and even tried to stand from the crawling position a few times. CRAZY! I know its so wonderful that he's reaching these milestones, but its so sad too. He's growing up very quickly.

Speaking of growing up.... we had his 9 month check up (actually did it at 10 months). He was 23 pounds, 8 ounces and 30 inches long (tall?). He is in the 90th percentile for height and weight. I'm guessing this assures his spot on the 2027 Razorback football team! :)
Jake also has a few new teeth! He now has both his front two top teeth, his two front bottom teeth and one eye tooth. He is quite the biter now!! Ouch!

In other news, Greg and I just got back from a wonderful trip to the Bahamas. We went with our good friends, Jared and Lindsey Woodard. It was so nice to just lay around and relax for a few days...but I missed Jake so badly! BUT - contrary to what I believed, he loved it and survived just fine. He got to spend some much needed quality time with both sets of grandparents and my brother and his family. We're so lucky to have such loving family close by to watch him when we need help or a break.

First night on vacation

Eating at Twin Brothers in Nasseau. This is a place the locals call "The Fish Fry." Great food and local atmosphere! We had a blast!
Atlantis! We didn't stay here, but we visited for a day. This place is incredible! A casino, aquarium, water park, restaurants, dolphins, etc...all located at the resort! Wow!
Us enjoying our "Anniversary Dinner.' Both couples were celebrating an anniversary - us 5 years and the Woodards 2. So, Sandals prepared steak and lobster and a special anniversary cake! Greg and Jared set it all up as a suprise for Lindsey and I!

The view from our room - WOW!

This is me touching a starfish at the Atlantis aquarium.

So, for those of you who don't know Lindsey - she is a rock star by night and ad exec by day!

Since my last post, I also got to see an old college friend, Krystal, and her husband and son. I haven't seen Christian since he was born last year (a week before Jake), because Krystal and her family live in Finland...yes- the North Pole! Krystal was in the states for a few weeks visiting her family, so we got to meet up in Little Rock and let the little guys play!

Not the best quality picture (iPhone), but you can see Krystal and I with our sweet boys!

Wedding bells have also been ringing - our friends Alyson and Stuart got married last weekend. Greg went to high school with Stuart and was his fraternity brother in college. Alyson is a friend of mine from my early days in Little Rock. They have been together since Greg and I started dating, so this wedding was a long time coming! :) All joking aside- they are such a sweet couple and perfect for each other. It was a beautiful outdoor wedding right on the river in Memphis. We had a great time ....heat and all!

Alsyon and Stuart's engagement picture - done by Sarah Bussey. GREAT picture!

Greg, Jake and I are headed to the lake this weekend. Jake's first Memorial Day lake vacation! I'm sure the lake will be packed and crazy, but we're going to take the little guy out for a little while anyway! I'll post pics of that when I return.
