Caught a cute one!

Lil Squirt at 9 weeks

Yes, I finally caught a good smile on the camera. Squirt loves to smile and coo at everybody now, but when I pull the camera out he often frowns at me like this....

Hey you funny metal thing, where did momma go?

Then I put the camera down and there comes the smile.
So I was quick and caught one finally....

Hey! Momma is back!


Ok, get ready...get set.... here is a pic. of COWPOKE sleeping in the bassinet for the first time!! He spends most of his day and night sleepy hours in my arms, on my chest, in the sling or in the front carrier I have. And no, he doesn't like the swing or the bouncy seat. Everytime I lay him down asleep on his back he startles and wakes up within a min., but he does like to sleep on his tummy. I know, I know...a big no no. Don't worry, I will keep holding him through most of his naps and loving every minute. Because I know in no time at all he will be walking and won't want me to hold him anymore.

Our sleepy little angel!

Ranch Rodeo!

releasing the steer.

"Rancher" was in the ranch rodeo again this year. A good time was had by all and other than him getting kicked by a calf in the hand resulting in some swelling and scrapes, everybody faired pretty well. The kids had a good time cheering for Dad and he had a good time getting together for one night with all the local cowboys. Their team placed 3rd and they won enough money to pay their entry fee and buy themselves a snack for the way home!

Cowpoke 8 weeks. A happy little fellow.

Flying W Ranch

We always let our kids pick a special activity to do for their birthdays. For the 2nd year in a row COWBOY wanted to go to the Flying W Ranch. Our neighbors/friends  had their grandkids here visiting, so they all went up too. We didn't have much time to look around the "flying w town" this time, but we did enjoy the good food and the great music.

Oh, and little COWPOKE enjoyed the evening from the comfort of his sling. Even in the cool evening he stayed nice and toasty. He was actually awake the entire time smiling at me from inside his sling. Everybody needs a sling; wish I had one babies past; they are great!

All the kids enjoying their meal.

You can barely see the singers in the background. We didn't get any of COWPOKE  that night, so here is one from today...7 1/2 wks. His hair is starting to fill back in and is coming in very light. He is very expressive.
