So Loved

Back in November Isaiah had more special visitors. His Pawpaw and Nana came to visit. He had such a blast playing with them and we are so happy they were able to come and spend some quality time with us!
Isaiah loved flying through the air with Pawpaw and Nana does the best Donald Duck impersponation.

Pawpaw played football at LSU and they were in town the weekend of the Bama and LSU game. This picture makes me laugh. Isaiah is saying "Oh No,Pawpaw is an LSU fan!"

Tis' the Season (take 2)

Last year we did not take Isaiah to have his picture made with Santa. He had colic and Mommy was completely exhausted. Plus we had a long road trip to make to Memphis and I had to pack everything but the kitchen sink! This year it was a MUST DO on our list. I will be honest with you, I was 99.99999% sure that Isaiah would go into full meltdown mode. I mean a big, hairy man in funny clothes being overly nice and chuckling some strange "ho, ho, ho" sound? I would be a little scared too! However, I also think the screaming baby pictures are CLASSIC and everyone needs at least one (if not more)in their collection.
So, off we go to see the Santa man. His helper Elf started prepping us as soon as we walked in the door. "Now, Mom just take him and approach Santa slowly. Take your time. Talk a little to Santa and act casual." Heck, I wanted to drop him on his lap and run. Bring on the tears buddy! Give Mommy her picture. I know I sound like a terrible Mom right now, but I truly find humor in this. Of course the nurturing Mommy/teacher in me did just as the Elf said. And when it was time, I plopped him on his lap and ran to the camera man. I hadn't even let go of Isaiah yet and he was screaming. HERE IS MY PERFECT PICTURE CAPTURED ON FILM (actually I took of pic of the pic with my phone so forgive the quality).

I don't know who is funnier, Isaiah or Santa! hahahaha!
I was perfectly pleased with the picture and encouarged the camera man and Santa to keep going but they thought we should try something a little different. So for the sake of the grandparents we attempted a shot with a happy baby! Out of sight, out of mind!

I must say that Santa and his elves were super patient, kind and fun with us. We spent about 10 minutes talking, playing and photographing. They never made us feel rushed or uncomfortable. Tis' the season to be jolly!

Tis' the Season!

Gearing up for Christmas in Central Florida when it's still 80 degrees is still not something I have gotten used to. Memphis has already had snow twice this winter and we can still work on our tans! So to help get in the spirit, after Thanksgiving we put up our tree and I had a little photography fun with Isaiah. It is rather difficult to take his picture since he is constantly moving. We also took a trip to Sea World (thanks to Gigi and Pawpaw Pete for our season passes) and saw some great Christmas shows. I LOVE downtown Lakeland. We went to the yearly Christmas parade (which I have no pictures of because I forgot my camera) and Munn Park has all their lights up so we also went exploring. Here are some pictures of our Christmas fun!
