Around the house!

A rainy & lazy morning at the Gerda household!

Bath time has definitely turned into playtime!

For the love of FOOTBALL!

Jensen has been enjoying two of his Christmas gifts from last year! He's sporting his Penn State Tee from Uncle Scotty and Uncle Leigh made sure he had a manly football to go with:) As you can see, Jensen is getting ready for his football days!

Jensen is 7 months old!

Our monthly photo shoots are becoming a little more challenging....Jensen loves grabbing the paper and crumpling it up!! So here are two different pictures....One I tried to do by myself and resulted in a paper wad and the second one when Joe was here to help me distract Jensen so he wouldn't try and grab at the paper the entire time!
We had Jensen's 6 month dr. visit on October 1st. He weighed in at 19.0lbs (75th percentile) and measured 28 3/4" (97th percentile). Dr. said everything looked great!
I had to take Jensen to the dr again on October 23rd...Turns out he has a double ear infection, poor little guy! He weighed 19.5lbs - so he had gained about a 1/2 pound in 3 weeks! We started him on an antibiotic, he took a few extra naps and he's nearly back to normal! He slept through the night for the first time in a week last night- Yeah!

Cousin Elle's Special Day

We were able to share in a very special day for Elle...We went to a wonderful baby dedication ceremony at their church! It was a great experience for the entire family! We were so happy to be a part of the day and support the Barfield family! We love you guys!
Jensen congratulates his big cousin Elle with a giant kiss! Sooooo cute!

Movin' & Shakin'

Jensen is a busy little man! He's completely sitting up on his own, rolling all over the place, putting every toy into his mouth and eating lots of fun foods! He goes to school 2 days a week and we absolutely love it! He loves the other kids, his teachers and all the great activities!

Jensen's first 5K on Saturday.....Bailey, Jensen & I partipcated in a 5K for Make a Wish....A beautiful way to start our morning!
Bundled up for the 5K

Lovin' Mom & Dad!

Just can't get enough of our little guy!

Seagrove Beach

Cara and I were feeling a little brave so we packed up Jensen & Elle and took off for Seagrove Beach! By 2:00am, when we had been in the car for nearly 7 hours, we were rethinking our decision!?!? After a good night sleep and a special beach cocktail the next day, we were reenergized:)

Our visit with Grandma and Grandpa Swanee was well worth the drive! We spent 2 1/2 days at the beach- relaxing, swimming, eating and enjoying as much family time as we could squeeze in....The kids loved it and so did we! We had our first Early Bird Special dinner and did some serious catching up on sleep! Let's do it again SOON!

Bestest cousins!

Beach time with Grandpa Swanee!

Life is good!

"Let's build a sandcastle!"

Love you!


Grandma Swanee surprised Grandpa Swanee by flying Molly & Josh to Atlanta the first weekend in October! We had a great visit with everyone....we're working hard to get them all to move here...Unfortunately we have not yet been successful in our efforts:(

We went to Joe's victorious football game on Friday night, hiked at Red Top Mt. on Saturday and went to the Braves game on Sunday. We even found a little time to sneak out of the house to enjoy some adult beverages...what a treat to have Grandma & Grandpa here to babysit:)
