Sweet Cheeks & Muffins

I have two super yummy things to blog about today...Lawson who is so sweet I could just "eat him with a spoon"...hope that isn't disturbing to any of you overseas is an expression used down south to describe a baby or child that is just too cute for words.

I mean look at those schmooshy lips...aren't they just so irresistable...kissing those little lips and cheeks is my favorite pass time these days.

At his 2 month check up on the 16th, he was 11.9 pounds...up 3 pounds since his 1 month which was 8.8 pounds. He's getting some chunk on him now. Still the best baby ever...sleeping through the night at 8 weeks...well anywhere from 6.5 to 8.5 hours uninterrupted, that is what I consider to be sleeping through the night.

He is soooo smiley and laughs at us all the time. He has great head control and loves to stand up on our laps and look around. The girls are completely in LOVE...they want to spend every minute talking to him and getting him to coo at them. Nalley's latest things to say about him are: "well I guess he's cooing at me mommy" or when he's hungry "we got a chirky (chirpy) birdie mommy" and when he's upset "mommy he's aaacking" (the "aaaaa" sound that a newborn makes when it crys). She keeps us in stitches wit the funny things she says.

These are my "famous" apple muffins. I took a recipe for apple bread off of the internet about 4 years ago and COMPLETELY changed it. I started making muffins instead of bread 3 years ago and they have been my families favorite since then. Each fall we get apples from friends (a huge bin from Shauna this year...thanks again Shauna) and I make applesauce and at least 12 dozen of these muffins to freeze. They are great for breakfast for the kids or as an afternoon snack with coffee. I'll post the recipe tomorrow...stay tuned!

Lawson's Baby Quilt

I am ashamed to say that I started cutting the fabric for Lawson's baby quilt on the same day that I finished the binding on baby Ashlee's quilt...waaaaaay back in April. Now that it is the second week of September and Lawson is almost 8 weeks old, it is now finished...whew!

I LOOOOOOVE the way it turned out, but what's not to love about this Katie Jump Rope fabric. However, I am questioning it's use in my little BOY's quilt now that it is done. KJR is one of the only lines with any great boy-ish fabric these days, but the problem is that it was already discontinued when I bought this fabric and these were the only ones left that I could find. I know that it is a bit girlish with the use of the flower fabrics, but (PLEASE be honest) do you think that it is too girly for a baby boy? The jury is still out for me. Shayne says it doesn't matter (which means a lot coming from his daddy) and Maybel said, "it is a little girly, but not too much girly" I'm not sure!

Maybel helped me take the full shot picture outside, she is such a good little helper. Today was her first day of 4th grade, she is getting so just kills me! Love that little stinker.

I have TONS more pics to share, like Nalley's photo shoot at the english gardens, our UGA outfit debacle for game day on Saturday, some cute randoms of growing Lawson...etc...but I haven't had time to edit them day.
