I love love love this 11 month old. He is so much fun! Pierce is cruising around everything and has started taking steps - we are up to 5. He still has no teeth, but by the clinginess, yucky diapers, and swollen gums, I am convinced there is one right around the corner. I love his smile and his giggle. God sure has blessed Justin and I with him!
Last night, my parents kept P so Justin and I could have a date night and the chance to sleep in this morning. Justin and I had a great time together and actually stayed out past our usual 'bedtimes.' Pierce, of course, had a fabulous time getting spoiled by Grandma and Grandad.

checking out his new 'big boy' shoes - since P has taken a few steps the past few days, Grandma and Grandad thought he needed some new crusier/early walker shoes
and the highlight of the stay - P's first 2 rides on the carousel at the mall

and one with Grandad
Thanks Grandma and Grandad for a wonderful visit! I love you!
I must admit - today, I was that really really proud momma. That super excited momma - yah that was me.
You see this morning while going through our regular routine of saying bye bye to Daddy and Duncan, Pierce said his first word. Yes, you read it right, my baby boy said his first word. And guess what it was - Dunc Dunc - Duncan's nickname. You have probably heard me say before that they are the best of friends, and I was not surprised at all that this was his first word. He actually said it 3 times today - once at the house and twice at MaraLee's.
While we pray that his vocabulary continues to expand, we couldn't be happier that this is where is started!
On Sunday, we headed over to the Leaches house to watch the Cowboy game. The little boys had a great time playing before the game started. I attempted to get a picture of Pierce and Brady in their Cowboy gear before the game started - however it is very difficult to get a picture of a 10 month old and a 17 month old.
If you know Justin, you know that he doesn't cheer for one football team. He is the ultimate fantasy player and cheers for certain players. Most people think he is rather weird for doing this, but I have come to accept it. We will still spend Sunday afternoon and night and Monday night watching football. Justin's dad, however, is a big Cowboys fan, so P is wearing his Cowboy shirt today in honor of the Cowboys and PawPaw.
