Oh Conner!

Conner has become a whole new kid in the past week! He is walking everywhere, and quick! He is getting into everything and learning how to climb on things. He has learned how to order videos on our TV (and that nice $5 charge will be added to my Comcast bill and no it wasn't porn). He is becoming such a ham! His personality has really started to come out!
I am loving this stage!

Lunch Advice

I am having a hard time coming up with ideas of what to pack for Conner to eat for lunch. I usually pack some combination of yogurt, pudding, cut up fruit, bananas, apple sauce and nuggets. He used to eat Easy Mac but won't anymore. I tried PB & J but he doesn't like that either. I am just stuck! Any other ideas???

Grandpa Okeys Funeral

Chris' grandpa, Okey Gillespie, passed away on August 28th at the age of 92 years old. Chris was pretty close to him and for as long as I can remember visited him at least once a year. As people were talking him at his funeral I realized that Chris is a lot like his grandpa. They are both hard workers, like to build things, have a love for the outdoors, will drop anything to help others and love their families. When Conner was just a couple months old we drove to Vegas and introduced Conner to him. It was an amazing experience and I can't wait for Chris to tell Conner about it one day. We love and miss you grandpa!

The Big Birthday Party

We haven't had Internet for the past two weeks so we are going to play catch up here! I guess that we will start with the most important thing first...Conner turned 1 on September 11th! And of course that meant having a party! Conner was spoiled and got tons of gifts! Thank you to everyone! Here are some pictures from his party and I will do his 1 Year Post on Friday after his appointment!
