He's Finally Doing It!!

.....crawling that is! He's not real great at it, he's still kinda wobbly. But hey, he's crawling nonetheless. Can't believe my baby boy is growing up and on the move! The easy days are over. From here on out, he'll be all over the place. Maybe I'll lose some weight chasing him around!

Yes, my house is messy. Don't judge me, I am cleaning it today. Promise.

I've been tagged!

My sweet friend Ari tagged me to do this thing, well, let me just explain it like this:

1. choose the 4th picture folder on my computer.
2. choose the 4th picture.
3. explain the picture.
4. tag 4 people to do the same.

The 4th folder on my computer was something totally random that Ross put on here, and I have no idea what it is. So, I started from our pictures together. And there were several folders that only had 3 pictures in them! Frustrating! So, I kept going to the next one, hoping that the next one would have 4, and I came across this 4th picture...

This was the day I was shopping for my wedding dress! Obviously that wasn't the dress I ended up wearing. But, this has a story behind it, so let me tell it. We were at David's Bridal. My mom, sister and I. We had been there for HOURS trying on dresses. It was exhausting, frustrating, yet exciting. So, I put on this dress. I originally didn't want to even try it on because Ross doesn't really like the strapless look. (later I found out he really didn't care what style the dress was) But, as soon as I put this on, I felt like it was THE ONE. I felt like a princess in it. I absolutely loved it. But of course, it was too expensive. Way out of my price range. So, I talked myself out of getting it, thinking that the less expensive dress was the wiser choice. I did love my actual dress, I still love it. But, I always wonder what it would have been like to wear the princess dress.

For anyone who doesn't know what dress I actually wore, here it is...

Oh! And I've got to tag 4 people!

    1. Emily Wilson
    2. Kelly Church
    3. Cassie Griffin
    4. Lauren Butler

    Basketball, baby!

    We went to an ASU basketball game last night, which was Jude's first live sporting event! Our sweet friends, Lisa and Kevin, invited us and we had a blast! Even though we're not big ASU fans, I love basketball...and realized how much I'd missed going to the Grizzlies games. And I still want to make a Tigers game at least once!!!!! Anyway, as for Jude, he actually did really well during the game. He was pretty mellow until the end, then he started to get excited. Maybe it was the [little bit of] Hawaiian Shaved Ice I gave him, hehe. Oh, and the Red Wolves won, too...by a lot! Yay! The other team only scored like 40 points the whole game. Pitiful! I'd like to think it was because we were there. ha.

    Here Jude met Howl. I thought he would be scared (a duck puppet on the computer has been known to scare our little one), but he wasn't. I was so proud!




    Can you see his top tooth coming in? :)

    The Ferguses + Kevin (and some people in the background)

    Also, I told Lisa that if I could help it, Jude would be more into basketball than football...but not if his daddy has anything to say about it!

    Faux Vacation

    Ross, Jude and I went to Memphis a few weeks ago for vacation, since we can't afford to go on a real one. Here is my favorite pic from the trip. We were at my sister's house, just lounging around and watching tons of mindless crappy tv...with both babies piled on me. :)

    And here is Jude and his cousin Shawn...

    He's getting the hang of it...

    Jude's not quite crawling yet, but he's getting closer. He just can't quite figure out the coordination of it yet. But here, you can see him trying. It kind of looks like he's dancing (or rocking) to the music, but the music is really just there as an incentive to get him to crawl towards the loud, shiny phone. :)

    Halloween & Pumpkin Carving

    We were lame and didn't really do anything for Halloween. Nope, we didn't even dress our child up. But, at least we carved a pumpkin. Here are pictures from that event,



    Jude started to get upset...he wasn't in a good mood

    Here is the infamous sad face. I love it, but it's so dang sad!
    Happy Halloween from the Fergus family!
