My Dad's Mom and Jack. A few days before Thanksgiving she thought she had the flu, but Praise God she didn't, and we were able to see her.
The Bodin Clan chowing down!
Uncle Michael and Jack. Since we aren't going down for Christmas Katie and Emily gave Jack his presents early. They were so excited! His first 2 Christmas presents were a penguin bowling set and a stuffed ball with shapes that fit into it. He loves playing with them!
Big Boy Jack sitting up. I still put a pillow behind him most of the time b/c every once in a while he'll just dive backwards head first. Hopefully he'll stop that soon!
I LOVE THIS PICTURE! Daddy and Jack under the coffee table "fixing" it! Jack is already so much like his Daddy, and Papa, and Grandpa! :) (check out Jack's socks--they are always like this hahahaha)
The guys are discussing what needs to be fixed under the coffee table. I was informed that no girls were allowed--so I just took pictures from outside the "man zone".
Jack army-crawls his way into any tiny little spot that he'll fit. Here he go in between the chair and ottoman. He's saying, "Mommy, get me out!"
Jack is growing and changing like crazy! He does something new every day! He started sitting up by himself about three or four weeks ago which was sooo exciting! He hadn't quite gotten it yet when we went to a Halloween party and our friends' son who is 2 days older than Jack was just sitting there in the middle of the floor by himself. Well, Mommy's competitive drive kicked in and I was determined that Jack WAS GOING TO SIT UP! So we started practicing more, and he did! Yeah Jack! Now he can go from sitting up, down to his stomach and "army-crawling" as we call it. He doesn't crawl on hands and knees yet, but he gets where he wants to go, and FAST! Earlier this week he started clapping!!!!!!! I was so excited! It is the CUTEST thing I've ever seen, and he's so excited about it! And then today I gave him some Gerber sweet potato puffs to try (his first finger foods) and after playing for a while he got one, and then later several, into his mouth! Yeah!!!!!! Brian and I are so proud of Jack! He's learning so many new things and he's so much FUN!

Nana got some good time with her little Jack man. :)
My parents and sister came to see us this past weekend. Well, they came to see Jack really, but that's OK, we know who the star is now! :) We had a great time hanging out and playing and taking tons of pictures of course. Saturday night some friends of ours had a Halloween party that Brian, Jack, and I went to, so we got to dress up! Brian and I were the Marshall and Deputy and Jack was our horse. :) I thought it was cute! (I'll post some pictures later, the site won't let me upload them right now.) Jack was ADORABLE! The party was really fun--tons of kids running around in cute costumes and lots of yummy food! After the party we dropped Jack off at our house and let Nana and Elizabeth have some time with him, and we went to "The Spooky Trail"--an annual tradition that our friends Scott and Paige put on--bascially a scary hayride for the kids. It was pretty funny to me, but some of the kids really freaked out, which was a little hard for me as a 1st time mom. But in all it was good. Sunday we hung out some more and took more pictures. The weather was AWESOME so we spent some time outside with Jack. It was a fun weekend, we really enjoyed having Nana, Papa, and Aunt Besa here!

Jack LOVES to get under the coffee table and play! We say he's fixing things like his daddy. Check out his hammer next to him. He's a Chisholm alright!
This picture is from Jack's first ever football game. He really did love it though he looks a little skeptical here.
I am a slacker and have not posted about Jack's 6 month checkup yet,which was last Wednesday. Oops! He and I went without Daddy for the first time, and I was a little nervous, but Jack was great and everything went fine. I was convinced that he had an ear infection because he had been really fussy and was pulling on his ears some. But Dr. Malak said he didn't, that everything looks great and that he is perfect! Praise GOD! Jack weighs 16.5 pounds and is 27 inches long I think, which puts him in the 75th percentile. He's a big boy! I'm so glad and thankful that he's doing so well. I love this age! He is sooooo much fun! He has started bouncing some in his excersaucer and in his jumper, he cracks us up! And he's getting more and more vocal. He's our precious little baby man!!!!!

The Rose Hill Barbeqe Team: Brian, 1st place for Cooker's Choice; Jimmy Bowlin, 1st place for Chicken; and Rickey Fore, 2nd place for Chicken.
Brian hard at work on his AWARD-WINNING "Cajun-grilled pineapple shrimp"
Father and Son. The BBQ legacy will be passed along.
Main Street during Rison in the Fall. There were lots of people there. I think there were more than last year. Or maybe we just know some people now. The booths and crafts were great. I got a really pretty Christmas wreath and Brian got a fillet knife.

Friday night we went to a Rison Wildcats football game. It is THE PLACE to be on Friday nights in Rison! We had a great time. A big group of our friends tailgate before the game and then sit behind the end zone--this week they cooked a hog and last week they fried fish. It is a BIG deal! Brian says it's "Friday Night Lights" and "Varsity Blues" combined--and it is!
This was Jack's second football game, and he loved it! He lasted until about half-time and then we go home. We live right down the road from the field, we can hear the band playing, see the lights, and even hear the cheers sometimes from our house.
It was a big deal this game because all of the kids got to line up and bust through the banner in front of the players and then run across the field with them. Jack watched in awe. I know he was thinking, "One day I'll be out there too!"
I decided to dress Jack in this cute outfit for church Sunday and could not resist putting the matching bonnet on him too! I was crying I laughed so hard! Brian laughed too, but made sure that I took that thing off his boy ASAP. hahahahaha. Jack is going to hate this picture when he's older! :)
He looks much better without the bonnet. So precious!

We're Mommys now!
Me and Mary Evelyn with our little ones, Jack and Brinkley.
Here they are having a conversation about how great their Mommies are.
Jack was very interested in Grandmamma's walker. She just laughed at him. :)

We had a great time in Madison at my Mom and Dad's (Nana and Papa) house. My sister, Elizabeth has a new digital camera and we went CRAZY with it! We must have taken 200 pictures of Jack. We now have a grand total of over 1,000 pictures of our little man. WOW!!!! How insane is that?
This is our favorite picture from this weekend. He is so precious!
Aunt Elizabeth made us put this Southern Miss outfit on Jack. We always pick on her for loving her "Golden Buzzards" as we call them. Jack didn't stay in the outfit long once Brian saw it. hahaha.
Cool man Jack.
Saturday was such a beautiful day so we put a blanket down in the shade and let Jack play. He loved being outside. Now that it's getting cooler and Jack can wear sunscreen soon, we'll be playing outside a lot! Jack loves playing with my hair and thinks it's hilarious when I blow raspberries on his stomach. I love hearing him laugh!
What a little charmer!Sunday morning we all took a walk around my parents' neighborhood. Jack had a good time riding along and chillin out.
Jack and Zoey, my sister's dog. Zoey and her mom, Belle, are the queens of the house and they were feeling very neglected while Jack was there. I don't know why??? :) Finally, we let the dogs get closer. Jack was so excited! He loves dogs.
Brian took this picture and I am in love with it! So cute!
Drooley man! He's getting two teeth in on the bottom and the drooling gets out of control at times.
