Walker Stone is 10 months old!

My little guy is 10 months old!

Weight: 26 lbs
Height: 31.5 inches
A little thing he is...ha!

He is crawling all over the place, pulling to standing, saying mama, dada, bye bye, waving, and doing the Stone family famous, "How big is Walker? Soooo big!" (As evidenced in the pic above.

He's eating pretty much everything we are...and he doesn't seem to dislike much!

He still thinks his big bro hangs the moon!

He also has a smile that will stop you in your tracks and a head full of gorgeous hair and eyelashes to die for!!

Love love love tho sweet angel blessing!

Almost Christmas!

We have had a busy fun filled Holiday season. One of my favorites of all time. So many parties, events, activities and time spent with family and friends.

One of my favorite things that we do each year is the Happy Birthday Jesus party that we co-host with our friends the Strellers. We invite all of our friends and family to come to a gymnastics gym and we let the kids run wild...then we bring them all together for a cupcake and a little lesson about the real reason we celebrate Christmas. It is so wonderful to hear what these kids of all ages talk about Jesus and how real and raw their love and understanding of him is.

Here are my boys right before the party began. They were rolling around and wrestling on the floor.

We went to our buddies, The Peters' annual Titus Lights Tour this past weekend. Too. Much. Fun. is pretty much all I should divulge about this adventure. This picture pretty much sums it up. And yes, we are wearing afros.

This is when the party first began and its a pic of me and my Natalie!

Jackson and I went to the Thunder vs. Spurs game this past Monday. So fun!!!

Jackson also was WAY WAY WAY overdue for a haircut. Seriously, look at this mullet!!!!!!

This is the after picture. He kind of resembles Cale Gundy is this picture....hmmm.......he says he now runs faster in his basketball games with his short hair. Who knew???

I couldn't find Walker the other day in the house. This is where I found him. Watching his big brother hoop it up in the driveway! Big surprise...SHHH don't tell Jackson, but for Christmas he is getting a real live NBA basketball goal for the driveway. He is never going to come inside. Ever.

We had a special visitor at our house last night!!!! We had some friends over for pizza and cookies and what a surprise when the big man showed up! The kids were floored!

And then this morning....sweet boys were playing on the floor....when Walker turned the lightsaber on all by himself. The force is strong with that one.

Jackson spent the day at the Santa Holiday Camp at the Devon Boathouse. What a blast he had! He ziplined, and there was a reindeer launch, games, rowing, and he even rock climbed for the first time. He had a ball!

This weekend we have NOTHING on the calendar and I am so excited. I want to take time and love on my family, look at Christmas lights, drink hot chocolate, take naps and celebrate life! It's time to slow down and remember Jesus' birthday and how much he loves us and I can't wait to do that with my kiddos!

Hope you all have a wonderful Holiday break! Much love!

I love these little boogers so much it hurts.

Jackson with an afro.

Walker with an afro.

Naked baby. Love him! Wow. Look at my foot. It looks like it is almost as big as he is! Speaking of my feet have seriously grown 2 sizes since I had kids. I started out a size 8. Was an 8 1/2 after I had Jackson, a 9 1/2 after Isaiah and now I am officially a 10! Has this happened to anyone else or is just me????

We had our family pics by the wonderful Shannon Love. Look at my babies!!!!!!

My sweet baby and I snuggling up last week. Love getting to spend so much time with him.

Peek-a-boo! Walker loves crawling in and out of this tunnel!

We went to the coolest Holiday party last week! It was at Wiley Post Airport in a Hangar and we got to take a helicopter ride to look at the Christmas lights. So awesome!!!

Jackson and I had a Mom/Jackson date this past Thursday. We dropped Walker off at Mother's Day Out and went to Starbucks for Hot Chocolate and Board Games. We then met Renzi and went to Jackson's 5 year well check appointment (yes I realize I am super late on this one). Jackson is super duper healthy and is growing sooo much! He is officially 4 feet tall and in the 97% of height. My tiniest baby is now such a tall drink of water! The three of us then went out for pizza and then Jackson and I went to the mall for some Christmas shopping. So fun to spend time alone together.

Walk Man had spaghetti for the first time yesterday at lunch. HE LOVED IT! YAY! He for sure needed a bath afterwards but it is so fun to see him try things for the first time!

Jackson had his friend Cal over for a sleepover last night and this is what I woke up to. Early morning hoops with Walker looking on. So cute!

I have really been praying so hard for the victims of the Connecticut shooting yesterday. It is just so awful and unimaginable. No one should ever have to bury their child. NO ONE. I realize I say that and have actually had to do this very thing, but I can not imagine the heartache of having something like what happened in Connecticut happen to you. I have been praying all morning for peace and comfort to every family member, friend and victim. I want them all to know and feel the peace of the Lord, to know that their babies are safe in Heaven and will never be hurt again. I pray that they will feel God's arms wrapped around them and know that they WILL see their babies again someday and what a joyous reunion it will be. So hard to comprehend right now, I am sure, but I pray they will feel and know this sooner rather than later because without faith in God's goodwill towards you all of the time, what else do you have?

I'm a Psycho Mom.

I feel like I have been a slacker blogger.

Life is just so busy these days!

I will be back soon with some updates, but I just HAD to share this video.

It's from Jackson's first basketball game this past Saturday. After watching it I realized I am a psycho mom. Seriously. Psycho. Watch the last 15 seconds and you will see what I mean.

I'm going to try to NOT embarrass my poor 5 year old next game.

As many of you with young kids know (or remember), sleep is a very precious thing to a mommy. You strive for it, you yearn for it, you crave it. Even when I think I have this getting your kiddos to sleep thing down, something throws me for a loop. Isn't that how so much of life goes??

This little guy has always been my fabulous sleeper. I swear he slept 12 hours a night from the moment we came home from the hospital. He napped consistently every day until about 3 months ago (he's 5!), and he still takes a nap on most weekends. Oh, and this SOON as his head hits the pillow he is out like a light.

Now, some of you may recall what an AWFUL sleeper Isaiah was! Seriously, every hour he was up during the night.

This precious booger is my "in-betweener." He's a better sleeper than Isaiah, but not nearly as good as Jackson. Here is during a nap after church in the car. He had missed his nap that morning so he was a flipping mess when we picked him up from the nursery. The girls who were working with the babies looked a little *too* happy that we were picking our fuss ball up. Ha!

Here is another example of how Jackson can sleep anywhere. We had been to Mary Poppins and we were dropping his friend Lauren off in our neighborhood and I looked back and Jackson had moved from his car seat to this seat (still not sure why) buckled himself back in and was out.

Again, with this little booger....He has figured out how to go from laying down to sitting up and scooting and rolling around everywhere. This was the morning I discovered his new trick. Needless to say, we moved his crib mattress down that night because I kept having this vision of him catapulting himself out of the crib. Renzi said that sounded pretty far fetched, but hey...babies can catapult...right?!??

Jackson always falls asleep in our room after his story and prayers...this night I was clearly tired too. Renzi snapped this photo of us before he took J back to his own bed. Lordy lordy...look at my hair! Bed head before the night even started!

Booger has been sleeping so much better the last week...going to bed at 7:00 p.m. and sleeping all the way through the night without waking up. Except.....his wake up time is now right about 5:55 a.m. EEK!!!!!!!!! This was yesterday when I looked over at 8:00 a.m. and he was falling asleep in his breakfast!

And Jackson must have been tired yesterday morning too because after I moved Walker to his crib from the high chair I went back to the living room to find this! Passed out under his tent that he built that morning.

Oh sweet sleep. How much I love thee.

Why is it that even if you are getting sleep you never feel as if you are getting enough?

Our week

We had such a fun week last week and ended with a FAB weekend....

Here were the highlights.....

Jax and I went on a Mommy/Jackson date to the Thunder Game. So much fun!

We acted pretty silly during car pool one morning!

It was beautiful this past week so we took advantage of lots of park time. Here is Walker playing in the sand at one of the parks with his buddy Mason!

Renzi had to work late one night so the boys and I loaded up and headed to Ted's. It was Walker's first trip and it did not disappoint. It's safe to say Walker is now officially a lover of Mexican food just like his big brother and his momma.

Friday night Jackson invited his friend Lauren on a "date" to see Mary Poppins at the Civic Center. These too cuties were so precious. We went and had hamburgers and french fries before the play.

And then we headed over to the Civic Center. The play was amazing and the kiddos loved it!

Jackson lasted until about 10:00 p.m. before he CRASHED in his daddy's lap. Lauren hung on until the end! Both kiddos were sound asleep in the car on the way home though.

And a major highlight this past weekend was one of my bestie's Jackie came in town with her husband and spent the weekend with us. We went to Norman to the OU game Saturday together and had the best time. Swirls and queso at The Mont, shopping and tailgating at Blush and the game! We ended the evening back at home with the kiddos and Sara and Ryan Walker and Hideaway pizza! Great day.

This is such a busy time for us....anyone else feel like they are running around like chickens with their heads cut off??? Hubs and I seem to have work events almost every night these last few weeks and we are sooo ready for a break at Thanksgiving. And to top it off, Walker is now on day 37 with a runny nose....and he likes to wake up at 4 a.m. for the day these days. Oh Lordy Lordy.

Thanksgiving...where are you???? :)

Halloween and 8 months old!

We had the happiest of Halloweens here at the Stone house this year!

Jackson was Raphael of the teenage mutant ninja turtles and Walker was Yoda.

Here is Jax before his school costume parade.

Cuties on the porch!

Walker was so funny to watch. He didn't exactly love being in costume but he was such a cute Yoda.

We went over to our friends house in our neighborhood for pizza and then all of the kiddos went trick or treating all together. Walker and I hung with everyone until they left and then we headed home for bed. Jackson and Renzi had the best time!

Here is a pic of the whole gang!!!

And Walker turned 8 months old on the 28th! This past month has been full of ear infections but hoping that they are over now that he got tubes in his ears last Thursday!

He is 23 pounds of love! He has his two bottom teeth and he is almost crawling! He gets on all fours and rocks back and forth and then thrusts himself forward or backwards. Hilarious.

He loves his big brother and lights up whenever he is around. Melt my heart!

We love you Walker Bear!

I was just looking through some pics on my phone and I just love seeing so many pics with Jackson and his friends. He is so blessed to have so many wonderful buddies in his life!

Love this picture of Jackson and Lauren downtown. Sweet sweet Lauren. She's going to be my daughter-in-law someday if I have any say in it. :)

Precious CJ Heskett! We love this big 3 year old to pieces! Always full of life and full of laughs.

Love these pics of Jackson and Lilly......just cruisin in her backyard in her Escalade. No Big Deal.

Uh oh....they are up to SOMETHING!

And love these Soccer Buddies! Love that they get to play soccer together and learn about teamwork together!

We have been to a lot of birthday parties is the Walkman at the Science Museum!

And afterwards at another birthday party at Fuzzy's downtown. Cuties!

Also discovered while looking through my phone were a couple of videos that Jackson had taken of himself. Oh. My. Goodness. He's whispering, but I *think* he says, "I'm going to give a concert and sing and invite my whole family."
