Learning to walk?

We were at a friends house and Cutter was having one heck of a time pushing the others around on their ride along tractor. He probably pushed it around in a circle about 15 times! He was having so much fun!

The concentration tongue!

On the go!!

Taking a break!!

All by himself!

We are teaching Cutter how to feed himself with a fork. So far he is doing pretty good and he is pretty proud of himself too. Check out these photos to see for yourself.

I want that!

I put the food on the fork and he puts the fork right into his mouth, without even missing the target! No mommy! NO MORE PICTURES!! See I can do this myself!

And a cheese to finish it off!!

Problem solver or Dog watcher?

I can't decide if Cutter has become a problem solver or if he is watching our dogs waaaaayyyyyy too much! About 2 or so months ago, Cutter found a new way to carry a toy from point A to point B. It has taken me this long to get a decent picture of it, because every time I would get the camera he would drop it. Almost like he didn't want any evidence that this was happening. We are in the process of trying to teach him that not everything has to go into his mouth. (Yeah, I know, good luck) However, we having much success with it. The items that Cutter seems to want to put in his mouth have been cut in half and are often soft things, such as a stuffed animal or soft toy. We are still working on it, and it is a work in progress, as is everything we are teaching him.

Corn on the COB!

We gave Cutter his first piece of corn on the cob! He really enjoyed it. I sawed off the actual corn and gave him just the "cob" part.
He wasn't quite sure what to think of it at first, but after holding it in his hand for a few minutes, decided that he would give it a try.

He decided the best way to "eat" it was to suck on the end of the "cob". I guess the juices were pretty darn good! Can you see that smile behind that "cob"??

What a lil ham!

A BOX of fun!

Why is it that the box is always so much more fun than the stuff that comes in it! In this case, it was Pampers box, but still Cutter had a great time playing in, around and on top of the box! Daddy had a great time spinning Cutter around in the box. The box occupied their time long enough for me to get some stuff done in Cutter's room! What fun on a lazy Sunday!

This is what happens when you leave a 10 1/2 month old, alone in his room, for an extended period of time. I have been letting Cutter play in his room, it gives him some alone time and shows him that he can play by himself. Well the other day, I went to go check on him and this is what I found. If you look closely you can see the little spot neat the bookcase where his little bottom was sitting. And this picture should be a testament to just how many books this little man has. He loves, loves books. He loves to eat the books, tear the pages out of the books and more importantly he loves to read the books. Well, I do the reading, but you get the point.
The destruction doesn't bother me! I am sure it won't be the last time I clean up a stack of books! I would have gotten a picture of him sitting in the spot, but by the time I got back with the camera he was moving away from the mess!

Laugh Out Loud!

Cutter loves to laugh. Sometimes he sits in the middle of the living room and just starts laughing. Not just any kind of laugh, but a full on belly laugh - the kind that makes you want to join him. Greg and I haven't quite figured out if he is laughing at us, our pareting skills, the dogs, or just because he wants too. It doesn't really matter, because we just turn to each other and laugh back at him! Maybe that is what he wanted - us to laugh at him! Anyway, the kid is just as cute as can be - I'll laugh with/at him any day!

Not much happening in the Nix house (besides the laughing episodes). Sorry that the post have been kind of boring lately. I figure you come here to see the pretty (I can still call him that, right?) little man anyway, so why write much when the picture pretty much explains itself! If anything new happens, I'll let you know! ~Kristie

OK, so I decided I couldn't wait til after Christmas to get a new laptop - so I am the proud new owner of a Dell Inspiron 1525! YEA, for me! I haven't installed the photo software yet, but once I do, I have some pretty cute photos for you!! First time eating spaghetti, a soapy mohawk and just monkeying around photos, are just some ideas of whats to come!

With those kind of hints - who wouldn't come back for more! I know ya do, so check back tomorrow night and see what Cutter has been up too!

Broken :(

OK so my 50 year old dinosaur of a laptop has called it quits on me! I am crying tears of saddness.

What am I going to do? I loved that thing!

I am working on Greg's work laptop write now, but he doesn't bring it home during the week. I am going to take mine to the laptop vets tomorrow and see if it is worth saving, if not, it may not be until after Christmas when I get a new one. I know that it is nothing serious, it has to do with the power to the laptop, so hopefully (keep your fingers crossed) it won't take much to fix.

My dino has been through it all and has visited almost every airport/hotel in the United States. Computers age like dogs, every year is really 7 years, and I have had mine for almost 7 years! So that makes mine going on 49 years! YIKES, thats old for a computer. I haven't been in a complete hurry to get a new one, because truthfully, this one has done what I needed to do - get on the internet, trade trips for work and load pictures.

My point in posting that I am laptopless is that I may not get to post very often and if I do post there may not be any pictures. Tomorrow after I take the dino to laptop vets, I'll know more!

Until then I am going to go cry into my pillow!!


Oh and today was my birthday, so happy birthday to me! Today you became laptopless! :( But, I did get breakfast in bed, delivered by my lil man with the help of my big man!! :)

Pumpkin Patch, Take 2!

This is about as good as our Take 2 pumpkin patch pictures got! Cutter was once again uncooperative, even though this time Stephanie and Wyatt went with us.Someone please, please tell me this is a phase. I don't know what I am going to do if I have a kid that doesn't like his picture to be taken! I am talking in future tense, because I am holding out hope that it is just a phase!Wyatt, on the other hand, was definitely in the mood to have his photo taken! Here is one of many photos that turned out super cute!!You will be glad to know that I am giving up on better pumpkin patch pictures for this year, the ones I have aren't bad, I just wanted better!! I am still holding out hope for next year!

My Lil' Silly Spider!

Cutter's first Halloween was a complete SUCCESS!! We had a fun filled day of things to do.

We were invited to a Mom2Mom group by Lil O's Mom! We had a great time. Several moms took advantage of a mom with a wonderful camera and very good talent! Cutter wasn't in the best of moods, but she did a great job with what she had to work with! Thanks Kathy!

Our next stop was to Cutter's sitters house, but we got there a little late for the pumpkin painting so we just sat and watched the others eat yummy, green iced cupcakes! Maybe next year Cutter will get to enjoy one with them.

Shoo, are you tired yet, from our fun filled day? Well it ain't over yet! No time to nap at home, so it is cat naps in the car! (And I expect a half way decent kid to go trick or treating, what am I thinking!!)

Well, those cat naps worked, cause once we got home I had a totally different boy than what I had at the play date! This boy totally hammed it up for camera - with his costume and hat on! Enjoy these pictures, I couldn't pick which one I wanted to post so I just decided to post them all!!Cutter loved going trick-or-treating. He hit up about 3 houses, before Mommy called it quits. Mommy felt a little funny getting candy for a baby who couldn't even eat it! So after a few houses, we were back at our house helping Daddy hand out candy. We got lots of oooo's and awwww's at how cute Cutter looked in his costume! I would agree with them 110%.Finally, we were back in the house and Cutter loved, loved checking out all the loot he got! Actually he only got about 6 pieces, but he knew exactly what to do with those 6 pieces. Put. It. Right. In. His. Mouth. And I didn't even get a chance to check it, good thing he didn't get to "eat" it!!Happy Halloween!
