Judson's Birthday Party

We had Judson's birthday party on Saturday night. He wasn't very interested in his cake, but he did enjoy entertaining everyone. He also enjoyed all of his presents and couldn't wait for us to get them out of the boxes. We missed you Uncle Jeremy, Aunt Melissa, and Cousin Jackson. When you come and visit next time, you will have to check out all of Judson's cool new toys.

Excited about opening his presents.

Hurry up and get this out of the box!

I would rather smile at everyone than eat my cake.

Happy Birthday Judson!

We can't believe our little man is one year-old. Jarrod and I both could not love and adore one little person more than we do Judson. He makes us smile, laugh, and only sometimes get aggravated. ( Like when he bangs daddy's golf club on the tile floor. I keep telling myself one day he will be a little Phil.) It is so much fun to watch him grow and develop into his own person.

Wedding Weekend

This weekend our friends Ryan and Michelle got married at Garvan Gardens in Hot Springs. They asked Judson to be in the wedding along with two other babies. Their part was to be pulled down the aisle in a wagon by the flower girl. On the day of the wedding, Judson had not had a nap all day and was in a very bad mood. When it was his turn to go, I put him in the wagon and he starts screaming. Once the wagon was moving, he stops screaming, but he stands up in the middle of the wagon. Fearing that he might try to flip out, someone in the audience picks him up and brings him out the back door. All of this happens while the poor bride is waiting to walk in. I don't think anyone else will be asking him to be in a wedding anytime soon.

Baby Dedication

Our church does their baby dedications on Father's Day. Since Judson was born at the end of June, he barely missed it last year. This past Sunday he finally got to participate in the baby dedication service. When it was his turn to go down front, Jarrod and I let him walk down since he was being such a wiggle worm in the pew. I guess when you wait almost a year to get dedicated, you get to walk down the aisle by yourself. I wish I had gotten a picture of it, but here are a few we did get.

Fun in the Sun

We got Judson a new pool for his birthday but decided to give it to him earlier so Heather could start his swimming lessons. As soon as I pulled it out of the box, he wanted to help daddy get it all ready. The kid is like his Uncle Jeremy, he isn't scared of work, he just sits down right beside it. Heather said that he hated the pool at first but is really starting to like it. We also got him this nice speedo swimsuit like his daddy's. I will not be posting those pictures.

Future Pledge Brothers?

Judson finally got to meet his good buddy Tyson Seyler tonight. Me and Heather and Joe and Amanda met Kris and Whitney to eat dinner in Camden, it was fun to watch the kids playing together.

Ready to eat some fish.
I don't want to hear another word out of your mouth.
