Christmas in HTown

Christmas in H Town was lots of fun! We went up there a few days before Christmas and got to see the whole fam and meet new people at the Hodges' annual Christmas party! Knox loved getting to see all the Hodges and of course as we always do in Hereford...we ate way too much!

Thanksgiving in H Town!

At 4 weeks I got my first road trip under my belt. We went to Hereford for Thanksgiving and it was a blast. I love getting to see my grandparents, aunts and uncle because I never have to be put down! My parents ate way too much but the food looked great and when I am off of formula I am going to tear it up! I love my grandmother Sharon, she had a crib set up for me in her room so we never had to be far apart and got up with me every night. My mom was so much happier to see me at 9am instead of 4am! But Sharon was happy to see me whenever! She talks to me and sings to me and I just love her. I even showed her how sneaky I can be...just when she would think I was asleep, I would open one eye to show her HA! I am still awake! But seriously, this woman is amazing, she even heats my towel so when I get out of the bath I am all snug and warm...I am totally getting the shaft from Mom and Dad! Steve-O and I got to hang out a lot and he would feed me and show me all kinds of things..even got to see snow for the first time! He took me over to see Butch and his lovely wife Mary Beth..I really like her :) Butch gave me my first pair of Wranglers with all kinds of fun stuff in the pockets. He put a race car, change, some rubber snakes, dice and then a box of these things called Condoms....Mom said they are just special water balloons but for some reason she won't let me hang out with Butch anymore!?
I got to meet Emma Kate and Easton who are my 3rd cousins and I think we are going to be good friends! I also got to meet Bridwell who is one of my Dad and Uncle Chips bestest first he didn't want to hold me but I convinced him and he was a pro. He brought over his financee Lacy and I really like her...not quite sure how he roped that one in.  I loved being in Hereford and getting to see Aunt Heather, Uncle Cody and Aunt Christy. I get to see them next weekend when they babysit me in Dallas! I loved my first trip to Hereford and can't wait to go back!

Casa de Crazy..

You may have noticed but I changed the title of our blog.......for two reasons. 1. The Hodges Family was just so boring, nothing spunky about it and 2. I feel this describes our life with the addition of lil Knox MUCH better. Since there seems to be so much more chaos now that we have a little one, it only seemed fitting. Like yesterday for example....
Lil Knox has been kind of plugged up lately so I was shocked to see that he had a BM! (as Gan calls it) So expecting something fitting so such a little person I set out to change his diaper. I had NO idea what was in store for me! Let me just put it this way...when Slade walked in the door Knox and I were both exhausted. I had been through 2 outfits for him, 4 diapers, and probably a whole box of wipes. I also had to change my outfit as well. He just kept going, so about the time I thought I was out of there it would come again. In a 15 minute period I had been spit up on, poo'd on and pee'd on! My how life has changed!

Knox's first month....

I can't believe our little nugget is already 5 weeks old! He is such a good little baby and we fall in love with him even more every day. Here are some random photos of him!

Mom put together my bouncy seat and i like it!

T came to babysit me!

I finally got to meet Uncle Thomas!

I love hanging out on my changing table

I LOVE to stretch!

My dad loves to talk to me

Knox's guard dog

So today I went over to mom and dads and was talking to dad in the driveway. Knox and I were about to go on a walk so he was in the stroller. Well Chico was also outside with us and decided that he was going to assign himself to guard Knox's stroller while dad and I were busy. Dad had some plants delivered and it was so funny every time the man (who I am sure was as nice as can be) would walk by the stroller, Chico would back up and stand next to it. He would also follow this man with his eyes as we were all unloading flats of flowers from the truck to the yard. I finally used my brain and got out my phone and took a few pics because it was just so cute. Chico is probably not going to be with us much longer because he is 15 yrs old so I wanted to document this awesome family dog!

this is Chico watching us unload flowers..

this is him watching the man from Smith's Garden Town put the flowers down in the beds..

this is Chico watching the truck cute!

More Photos!

These are the rest of the pics that Rachel took and a few more that she came back to get. I wanted a few outside and wanted a few of the three of us. These are a week and a half after Knox was born. We are so pleased with the results! A little side note: lots of people have commented on my dark hair...actually it was kind of an accident. I went to get my roots done and I was so tired from having a baby ect. that I didn't realize how dark she was getting it. I actually did not even realize it until I saw these pics. It has since been lightened a little. :)

Our first family photo

Should I be concerned that at 1 1/2 weeks he is this thrilled to be in a golf bag??
