Dad's Christmas Present Fishing Trip

Daybreak at Toledo Bend--3/17/11

Dad patiently awaiting the next bite.

We saw several eagles soaring throughout the day.

Bro. Joe fighting one of our 12 keepers.

Toledo is about 7 ft below normal now.

Our guide....Joe Joslin

Bro. Joe fighting a 5 pounder.

Our largest of the day jumping at the boat.

Today's lunker....4-5 pounder.

It was goose mating season on the Texas Islands.

My best attempt at capturing the eagle while on a boat in 20 mph winds.

This is an eagle's nest...about 6 ft in diameter...they use the same nest year after year.

Dad's final fish of the day

Get the Net!

This was fish 21 of the 22 we caught today. Overall a great time of fishing and fellowship.

Noah is 9 months old!

Noah, you are growing so fast! I can't believe you are 9 months already! Here are some of your stats for this month:

-You weigh 19lbs and I am not sure how long you have been sick several times over the last month so that is why I know your weight! Your check up is next week!
-You are wearing 12 month sleepers and 6-12 month clothes.
-You are sleeping 12 hours at night.
-You are napping two good naps a day.
-You are still not you are SO close!!! You do however roll everywhere you want to go. You get frustrated starting to crawl so you just throw your head over and roll.
-You will give kisses pretty freely!
-You are into everything!
-You will eat any fruit baby food. You do not prefer the veges!!
-You are jabbering and making lots of sounds. You will repeat some of the sounds we make. You do say mama & dada.
-You are still loving your big sisters. If they are in the room you are following every move they make.
-I LOVE your new smile!!! It covers your entire face! You wrinkle your nose and show your teeth!
-You are very friendly...if anyone we see smile are talks to you, you smile and talk right back!
-You LOVE being outside!! We set up your baby swing on the swingset and you can swing with your big sisters. You also enjoy just sitting in your exersaucer on the back porch.
-Unfortunately, you have also had 3 ear infections in the last 6 weeks so we are going to see the ENT in a couple of weeks to discuss getting tubes put in your ears. Both of your sisters have had them so we know once you get them it will make this problem go away!!

We are just loving every minute with you!!! Happy 9 months my little man!!!
