The Dad Unit and I did our traditional Mothers Day sidewalk drawings. We had fun, as usual, and the Mother Unit loved it. An afternoon rain though didn’t think to highly of our craftwork. Now it’s all gone. Bummer. Maybe we can do it again tomorrow.
These last few weeks we’ve had a couple of milestones of epic proportion in the Richardson household. Yes, Noah was born which we are all very grateful for. Brooks got to meet his new partner in crime a few days after birth when he returned from a networking business trip to Savannah, GA.
Brooks has started eating solid foods. We actually did this over at Shawn & Tiff’s house.. not sure why their house, guess if it got nasty.. anyways. Brooks has also started what seems to be his new love for the Jumping Seat. Honestly, I’d be pretty stoked if they made an adult version of that chair. Its hard to think someone wouldn’t like it.

Today is Noah Christian Richardson’s birthday. Tiffany was a real champ as she delivered Noah who weighed in at a whopping 9lbs. 11oz. All are well and we were excited that Shawn was able to work out through his whole deployment stuff to be around for the birthday and as long as he was.
We hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!! Ours was quite good with the little man in tow. Went down to “Nana & Grandpa’s” house in Birmingham where we spent a few days and Christmas morning, then back home to meet up with some of the Foster Clan (which is always a raucous time).
Christmas morning was highlighted with Brooks showing off his newest skill of rolling over. Yes, we celebrate these small milestones. This was his first successful unassisted rolling over since he was 2 weeks old when he did it for the doctor (we call that a lucky first attempt). This time he did it for Grandpa, so apparently he likes to show off for others, but not so much for us.
Anyways, its a cute video with my dad playing around with Brooks, a few farts, laughable moments, & our celebratory developmental milestone of rolling over.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!! we had a grand time at the Foster household with almost 20 people celebrating with us. We had quite the spread. Our contribution was an Apple Baked Acorn Squash, with some throw in of fruit salad, and macaroni salad (store bought, and was really just for me). You can check out some of Thanksgiving weekend festivities by visiting our November photo set.
went hanging out halloween weekend & the first sunday of november for my annual family reunion. this was the first time that lil’ Brooks was able to meet Great Granddad Brooks, whom he’s named after. we had a great time staying over at the farm and hanging out with my cousins/aunts/uncles & siblings. good times. here’s a little photo slideshow
Anna is a good friend of ours and offered to take photos for us after my nikon was stolen last spring. we were stoked to have her take photos, she’s a whole lot better than me as a photographer.
Brooks was quite the awake child (though this photo doesn’t show that part) for his b’day photo shoot. this made it tough to get some of those ‘serene’ pics you usually see, but i suppose we already have some of those sleeping peaceful baby pics. Brooks was quite the trooper in modeling for about 2 hours with some sporadic breaks.
you can check out Anna’s blog posting with some of our photos from the photo shoot. when she’s had time to go through more of the photos we will link to those so people can order prints if they like (and i know you all want your Brooks professional print).
if you are looking for a photographer, i would highly recommend Anna.
The other day Brooks had a visit from the Piper family. Some of our longest friends. Brooks got to meet & play with the youngest of the Piper clan, Glancy. Here are some Brooks & Glancy highlights. You can visit the Piper clan & their host of eatery treats around the East Nashville area. Pied Piper Creamery (reviews) & Pied Piper Eatery.
