Goode to be Outdoors

 The weather has been so yucky lately, that we haven't had much of a chance to play outside.  But luckily, we've had some good weather this past week so we made the best of it.  I'll admit it, I hate summer.  The heat is not my friend.  My hair gets all nasty, my face gets beet red, I'm more irritable, and I feel like death is just a footstep away.  With that being said, I didn't mind the heat this past weekend.  When you're outdoors with the ones you love and having fun, who cares!  We put on some tunes and let the good times roll.  I'm so grateful for my family.  Crew just loves to be outside (what kid doesn't though?!) playing on his little playset (thanks Mimi and Grandpa Goode), with his water wheel (thanks Grandma and Grandpa Smith), and riding in his wagon (thanks Justin for outgrowing it, lol). 
Daddy and Crew!  I love this picture
He may look angry but quite the contrary. This boy LOVES water

I don't remember what he was saying "Uh oh" to, but it sure makes for a funny picture.

Flash photography, anyone?

 I really wasn't trying to blind the baby with flash, but it does make for some funny photos.  The kid can't stay away from the camera when it's out.  Like a moth to a flame, this kid.  Hahahaha
 Just being Crew

 This one is one of my favorites ever.  Crazy kid!  ;)

Those eyes!!

Blue Angels 2015

I had seriously been looking forward to the Blue Angels coming to Corpus for almost a year.  That's how much I love them.  There is just something so majestic about watching them fly; I am always in awe as I watch them in action.  And isn't it just the best feeling in the world as they fly right above you- the power, loudness, and force that these jets have is amazing.  Love love love them!!!  This was also Crew's first time to see them.  I expected him to cry, but he did not.  He did make some hilarious faces though.  :)  It was somewhere in between awe and fear.  LOL  My mom was also able to meet up with us, which I was grateful for.  Glad she was able to be a part of it.

The Water Gardens

 We went to the Water Gardens yesterday and took a few photos.  The visit didn't exactly go as planned, as he would not be still for even just a second.  I guess that's how it is with toddlers, though.  Ha!  Here are just a handful of the shots we got.  He's hardly ever actually looking at me, but I think we still got some pretty cute pictures. 

 Daddy wrangling the wild baby

 He had only a couple of meltdowns while we were there.  Mainly because he didn't want to be held.  He just wanted to run!  Hahaha

 I love this photo, even though he's running away from the camera.  :)

 Contemplating life.

 Had to tickle him to get him to smile.  Whatever works, right?!

I think he's done with picture taking.  We left soon after, lol.  :)

My boys

 The boys were playing around the other day, and I just had to take photos.  They crack me up!  Don't you just love the way Crew posed for the first photo.  Silly kid!

I have a silly baby with an orange nose.

 Orange is quite the popular color these days, or so they say.  I never was really that into orange, that is until my baby's nose turned orange.  LOL  It's the jarred baby food!  The only carrots and/or sweet potato he's eaten lately have been from Gerber in a baby food jar, which we are staying away from.  Hopefully we can get this all cleared up soon, though I know it's harmless.  Pictures even enhance the orangeyness (yep, made that word up) of it all.  But you have to admit it, orange nose and all, that's one cute baby!  Here he is on the morning of Halloween, orange nose galore.  ;)

Hey!  Get away from there!  And where is your mother?!!?

11 Months Old!

I can't believe you're 11 months old!  You've done so much this past month.  You took your very first steps!!  You still won't take more than a couple of steps at a time, but you'll get the hang of it eventually.  We're so proud of you!  You're going through a biting phase; that's not so fun.  It hurts.  Sometimes a lot, lol.  :)  We still love you, though.  Funny, if I tell you not to bite something, you get angry and just throw it.  Hahahaha  You also started to wave this month, however, I still can't get you to clap.  You prefer to just move your hands up and down rather than together.  Whatever floats your boat, little man.  Whatever floats your boat...;) 
We took a stroll down the Bayfront recently for his birthday photos.  I debated on whether I should wait to post these now or when he was a year old.  But since I took them now, it made sense to post them according to his age in the photographs (at 11 months rather than 12). 
 One of my favs, if not my favorite.  It's just a perfect shot.  

 Very serious, lol.  And though he isn't smiling or even looking at the camera, there's something I like about this picture.  

Oh, that face!  He's just so excited!!

 I can't decide which photo I love more of this set.  They're both so adorable.  

 I was experimenting with different filters, and I just LOVE this one.
