Houston part 2

One day while visiting the Rabes we took a day trip to Brenham, TX and toured the Blue Bell Factory. They wouldn't allow pictures during the tour, but it was awesome! It made me love Blue Bell even more. 

That evening we walked to the park where this adorable picture happened:

The park is more fun when Daddy comes!

15 months

This photo sums up H at 15 months. He loves trucks and being outside. This week he has been climbing on everything in sight and going down slides by himself. He has also been cutting some teeth which has made him super clingy. That is, unless we are the park which is full of distractions. I am trying to enjoy the clingyness because I am sure it won't be too soon and he will be grown up. Something I hate thinking about.


Here are some highlights from our first day in H town

This is how the majority of pictures with Henry turn out

Kemah Boardwalk. Henry's first ocean sighting.

H could have watched this for hours.

Lockhart, TX

Just returned from a glorious Thanksgiving break. We spent our first weekend in Austin, which I will blog about later, and then drove to Houston. On the way to Houston we stopped in Lockhart- the BBQ capitol of TX.

Our destination

Tummy begins to rumble

The meat and some sides

This my friends is a beef rib. We had a hard time prying it out of Henry's paws. 

Lockhart did not disappoint.

Still here

Oh hey. We are still alive. 
Guess I can't use having a newborn as an excuse not to blig anymore because henry is now 14 months old! 
Look forward to more posts.

Being a mother is

 Helping your baby learn and grow
but wanting them to stay little forever.

This little guy amazes me every single day.
I am so lucky.

To the tune of "my favorite things"

Smiling and eating and burping and pooping
Grunting and squirming and swinging and cooing
Black frames on white walls and bright ceiling fans
These are a few of my favorite things

When I'm tired
When I'm hungry
When my car seat makes me cry
I simply remember my favorite things 
and then I don't feel
soooo bad (sorry that didn't rhyme)
