A weekend with famliy

Our families came in town this weekend to celebrate Toby's baptism with us and we did our best to wear them out. We went to the Magic House

to Grant's Farm --we fed goats and camels...Megan had to learn quickly to man-handle the goats or they would attack.

out to eat

and had a wonderful baptism celebration at church and had a beatuiful lunch with the entire group at my mom's house

and if that wasn't enough...we SOLD OUR HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!! now we have no where to go--pray for the Lord to bring forth a house for us.

Toby and Ela had a great time...she thinks he is her little baby...she rocked him
held him

walked him
and bathed him. She had to teach her uncle Joe a thing or two about giving an infant a bath--notice how she is muscling him out of the way to get in there and get the job done.

many of you may not know that for 6 months now I have personally fed Toby every feeding because he WILL NOT take a bottle. Well, the day came when I was determined to break him of this stubborn streak. It took an hour and a half for him to take 2 ounces in the bottle and this was the picture afterwards. (notice I'm not showing what I looked like!) I'm not sure who won that battle, but I haven't given him a bottle since...I guess he won!
these are just some cute pictures...

more pictures

This has been another big week for Toby! He went to his first "O'Doctor" mens softball game and watched his daddy's team win. He was dressed in the team uniform, thanks to our friend Shane Johnston who made Toby his own jersey...just like daddy's.

On Sunday we put Toby down for a nap. I was sure to lay him on his back, as all the experts have instructed us. When I went in to check on him to see if he was sleeping, this is what I found! This is the first back to front roll and we are so proud of our boy. (it's the simple things in life that we find so much joy in!) Toby is now a "mobile" infant and it's now part of his pre-sleep routine to spin in circles in his crib.

I had to capture a picture of Toby, just after his bedtime cereal, watching Sports Center with Joe. What you can't see is that Joe is sitting on the couch wit the same look on his face. What am I in for?

This weekend we bought Toby an exer-saurcer and he is now loving life. He was getting tired of laying on the floor and was ready to be stretching those legs! and what great legs he has...

Last night we went to a surprise party for my friend Stacey...Happy #35 Stace! It was mom's turn to dress Toby...and isn't he ADORABLE! I almost called JCrew to see if they needed a model. Even when he wasn't so happy he is still precious!

He is almost sitting up on his own...but as you can see, I don't trust him yet.

Another milestone in Toby's life...this week he came down with Roseola. He was so sick Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. He had a high fever and was not his usual self. Wednesday the fever broke and out came the rash. It's all over his head and back, if you look closely at the picture you can see the red splotches on his face. The doctor assured me that it doesn't bother him and isn't contagious. He seems to feel better, he just looks kind of funny.
