Lots of playdates this week!

Jude and I have been keeping busy this week. Of course the week isn't over yet, but I need to blog these before I forget. :)

Jude is learning how to use a sippy cup.

Riley and Roxy hanging out.

Loving his smile.

Before we know it he'll be pulling out the top drawer.

Monday we had a playdate at our friends house, who also happened to be out of town at the time. Jude, Jack, and his other friend Jackson all had a great time swimming.

Tuesday we headed to the spray grounds. Jude wasn't too excited about it.

But he was exhausted afterwards.

Wednesday we met a friend at the mall play area. Jude had alot of fun with his friends. Unfortunately, he continued to push his friends over for their toys, so it was time to leave.

Crawling with Raydon.

Jude enjoying the wall play.

Jude and I had a picnic lunch in the food court.

Today (Thursday) was pretty uneventful. We took Riley to get groomed and did a little shopping. Jude is about to go down for a nap.

This video was taken in the mall play area. I think he was pretending to be a worm. :)

11 Months!

I'm finally getting around to posting his 11 month pictures. He was not in a smiling mood. :)

Man, I love this kid!!!

Nothing but Bug

These are just a few randoms of Jude this week.

Baby boy napping. I love how he snuggles his blanket under his tummy. Sometimes all of his blankets and his socks are under his stomach. :)

Pulling himself up everywhere!

Playing with Daddy and his hat.

 Roxy is staying at our house for a week and Jude has found a new fascination with her kennel. Every time I turn around he's trying to crawl in it.

Watching morning cartoons.

I bring him into the bathroom with me when I get ready in the morning and his new favorite thing to do is go straight into the shower to play.

A video of Jude talking. He's not saying dada yet, but we're trying! He likes to say "baba". This kid has some serious energy.

Napa and Jude!

This weekend I traveled to Napa to my cousin Annie's bachelorette party. It was a freakin blast and we had SO MUCH FUN!! Most of these pictures are on Facebook, but I know some of you aren't on there so here they are again.

Annie and I

Ben from the Bachelor has a winery in Sonoma so we made a stop there. Ben and Courtney (the girl he chose on the show) were there, as well as another co-owner, Danny. We all fell in love with Danny.

Night out

Bachelorette party night

We ate at a place called Gott's for lunch one day. The line was snaked around and we found out this place was on "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives". We now know why. Holy crap it was good!

Wine tasting

Me and Danny!!! *swoon* Holla! I wanted to put him in my pocket and take him home with me. John said no.

Jude riding in the basket today.

John took this picture to send to me while I was in Napa.

Daddy was trying to make a mohawk on my baby.

Another picture John took. Swinging on their morning walk.

He fell asleep one morning while John was on the phone. Haha!

Jude was swinging on his friend David's swing. We went to his first birthday party yesterday. It was a great time, but Jude wasn't feeling good, so we left early. I was impressed that he was holding on so well.

My little batman.

Busy, Busy, Busy!

We have been super busy this past week. My dad, Linda, Zack, and Katie came visit us for a few days. Of course no pictures were taken. I am so bad at that! We had a great time and we look forward to seeing them for Christmas. 

Me and my boys
 John took this pictures one morning while I was still sleeping. Hurricane Jude!

 I'm doing a little decorating in our house. My mom made these place mats. I love the colors! Now we're on the search for fabric to recover the dining room chairs.
 Jude and I had an Ikea trip and I bought the colorful pillows for the couch. We already had the green pillows, but I thought we needed more color.

John and Jude playing with the camera.
 I watched the Custer girls for a couple of hours today. Once Michele came back we had lunch and let the kids play for awhile.
Jude taking all of his books out.

He loves to read!

Michele reading a story while Ella plays with a blanket.

Jude and Ella were both standing and holding onto the ottoman. Ella fell just as I took this picture.

This was taken the night of July 4th. Riley was terrified of the fireworks and kept hiding behind the chair.

Jackson and Jude playing

Jackson pushing Jude over. Haha.

Jude's first pair of clogs.

This picture cracks me up every time I see it. I sent it out to everyone and put it on Facebook. This little puff stayed on his chin for the longest time.
 On Tuesday Jude and I met Michele and Ella for lunch at Chipolte. The two had a great time and Jude didn't stop eating the whole time. Baby boy is going through a major growth spurt!

Trying a green bean.

Jude trying to get to his daddy.

Dont' freak out! This is Jude's new way to shop with me. He's not tall or strong enough to launch himself out. I made sure he was safe before letting him do this.

Shopping at Ikea

These pictures are a bit out of order but I don't have much time to fix it. I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!
