This past weekend we made our first trip back to Abilene since Taos was born. There were MANY family and friends who were anxiously waiting to meet him. On Saturday my sweet friend Courtney and her mom had a little shower for us to introduce Taos to everyone. It was so fun to see lots of family and friends that we don't get to catch up with often enough. We are so blessed to have such good friends to open up their home and give us such a nice shower. Thank you Teri and Courtney. I didn't get a ton of pics on my camera, but here are a few below.
Nona and Papa said he had grown so much since they saw him when he was born.
Sitting with Aunt Kallie
Meeting Pop (my grandpa) for the first time.
Meeting Grandmomma (Casey's grandma) for the first time.
Casey's cousins Kristie and Shelly with Mimi in the middle.
Me and Taos and my cousin Cristi with her son Heston.
I was so excited that my Aunt Cherry came to meet Taos. She is actually my grandpa's (Pop) aunt so Taos would be the 5th generation since her! Wow!
Courtney holding Taos with her sweet little girl Brookelynn. Court looks so good - you can't even tell that she is having a baby at the end of this month.
My good friend Blandi who I haven't seen in forever. She is also preggo - so excited about all my friends and their babies!
My aunt Karla holding the little man.
Avery and dad enjoyed some fun in the pool at Casey's aunt and uncle's house - after all, the temperature was in 100s that day!
Swimming with her cousin Boone.

Big Boy Jeans

So I'm assuming it has something to do with being a cowboy and wearing jeans 7 days a week - but my husband just insisted that Taos have a pair of jeans. We got this cute pair from Uncle Lance and Aunt Kallie when Taos was born and Casey couldn't wait for him to wear them. I'm sure that these will just be the first of many pairs of jeans that we will go through around our house. I have to admit that he does look pretty darn cute in them.... we'll see what Taos thinks about them.
Looks like he thinks they are alright... just sitting in his bed.
Wow - look at that temper. Not sure if he's mad at the jeans or mom making him sit up in his bed like a big kid :) It almost makes me laugh when he gets this mad. He's still so cute.
Already riding a "bucking horse" on daddy's knee. Looks like the jeans have Taos' approval! I love my boys and their jeans.
