Our Big News!!!

Miller is going to be a BIG Brother coming April 2009. Trevor and I went to the doctor today for our 12 week nuchal translucency screening. The baby looks nice and healthy with a strong heartbeat. Seemed to be resting most of the visit so the U.S. tech pushed around real hard to get the bambino to move. Well to Trevor and I this was good to see. Maybe a laid back child that does not scream the first 3 months. Doubtfully the case, but one can hope and pray. The due date is May 3rd, but we are looking at an April 24th repeat C/S. I have been more sick this time and have only thrown up once. So far gained less weight, probably goes along with the nauseating thing. We will continue to update when we know more.

Well, here is Our Little Pumpkin in a little patch. We went to a church not far from our house on Saturday and Miller had a great time crawling around the patch. He is not yet walking, but very close. He just does not like to slow down to balance and concentrate on the walking. I am sure it will be soon. We picked out several pumpkins and we will carve them at Grandma's house next weekend. He has just gotten so big and his temper and attitude has been improving. He is a pretty enjoyable child 95% of the time.

Just a cute pic with My Aunt Kim at her wedding

Trip to the ZOO

Miller and Izzy checkin' out the fishes
The "Fam"
I am not so sure about this Billy goat?

Chillin in the wagon with Izzy, Life is good!

Sunday morning we got up and headed out to the zoo. We got there when it opened. The weather was great and the crowd low. So it was a good day. Our friends Angie, Mark and their daughter Izzy joined us. Miller loved hanging in the wagon and just cruising. His wagon rides are some of his favorite times lately. We ended the visit at the petting zoo. He got no nap all day except a cat nap on the way home around 2 and never could go back to sleep. Then when it came bed time he was so tired he could not fall asleep and just screamed. We ended up having to rock him to sleep. This is like the second time he has ever done this since he has been a big boy and sleeps all night. We rocked 3 separate times until we decided we were gonna have to rock him to sleep to get him down. It was really nice to have him fall asleep on me, its been a while.

Miller and his temper

Miller plays hard, laughs often, smiles, gives hugs a lot, but has a little bit of a temper. We don't really know where he got this from. If we tell him no or pop his leg for repeatedly telling him "NO", he will lay on the floor gently and pop his head on the floor sometime 2 or three times. Anyone have any suggestions. We just try to ignore him. Then he will cry. I am pretty good at ignoring him, but Trevor can't stand to see him sad. So Daddy is the hero, but also the sucker. Hopefully this we will grow out of!

Miller started swim lessons on September 24th

Miller has enjoyed his swim lessons so far. He is learning to go under water and blow bubbles. Neither we have gotten very far with. The problem is Miller is 14 months still not walking, but we are just hoping he will learn to swim so he gets from A to B. He does everything that he needs to for walking , but seems a bit scared. We think he will just wake up one day and take off.

Brooklyn and Miller at the Children's Museum

Brooklyn came and stayed with us in League City a few days and her mommy and daddy. We went to Children's museum and tore that place up! Brooklyn was pretty tired of Miller by the end of the visit and cried anytime he came near her to play. She is use to playing a little more indpendently and Miller crowded her space. They have not seen each other since this visit. So maybe things will improve by there next play date.

Miller and Brooklyn's Big Day

Miller new it was a party for him, he loved every minute of the party. We had his party at Gymboree with Brooklyn in Houston. All his and her friends joined us, it was great. Everyone that came was around one and they had a great time climbing and discovering.

Our Fanning Family trip to Colorado. Miller's actual birthday was while we were there. This is the Fanning Family Ranch. It was real nice weather, but pretty chilly at night. Miller took a while to adjust to the altitude in Colorado it took about 2 days, before that he cried alot and only wanted mommy. I think his ear were hurting.

to Dallas

Here is a visit with Brooklyn in Dallas in late June. We found out on this trip that Brooklyn was going to become a big sister. Our summer took us a lot of places. On this trip Miller got a terrible stomach bug and was vomiting the last 3 days. He threw up on Aunt Allison and I believe she still loves him. This was hard Dad was not on this trip. We flew on an airplane while he and I were both sick. Lots of fun!!

Miller in the cabinets

Here I am discovering the cabinets mom has so neatly organized. This is first of many cabinet distructions.

Our June began with trip to San Antonio with Christen, Laird, Brooklyn, Kim, Rob and us. We swam in Gammy and Pappy's pool and played real hard. We are 10 months here. Brooklyn and Miller are 3 days apart.

Miller Then and Now

Here is the Fanning Family on Miller's very special first birthday and now he is 14 months old, bundle of energy that we have a hard time keeping up with. If he is not in a cabinet, food all over him, pooing in the bath tub, banging his head on the floor when he doesn't get his way, or giving sweet hugs and kisses then we don't know what we would do with our time. We have enjoyed watching him grow, change, and develop into our little man.

Well finally!!!

I have wanted to start a blog for a long while. I have finally made myself take time to sit and do it. We have alot we want to be able to share to all our friends and family, so why not blog it. I will be catching you up through our summer till now and then we will start trying to keep up.
