Beau's Birthday

Fearing with his "GiGi" Mosley

I am only two weeks behind here but I thought I would post some of these sweet pictures from Beau's birthday lunch at his parents a few weeks ago.  We also did a 'Suprise" birthday cake and ice cream and singing to him the night before after the Auburn/Furman game. My sweet sister's baked him his favorite "Confetti" cake and it was alot of fun!! NOT To mention he had a HUGE suprise at the Auburn Game.... For those of you who were there you know how boring that game was by the end and a little bird told me that Beau was getting a suprise so I had to pull out my mean wife face and threaten to get really mad if Beau didn't stop suggesting that we leave in the third quarter. Hahaha Oh well, luckily I did not have to be too mean and Beau was glad we waited.  Enjoy!

Four Generations of Mosley men. Fearing is the first "Mosley" great-grandson (the first boy to carry on the Mosley name)

** Oops gotta go pick him up - he is yelling for me.  I will post the rest of the pictures soon!

How Great is our God

The splendor of a King,

clothed in majesty

Let all the earth rejoice,

all the earth rejoice

He wraps himself in light,

and darkness tries to hide

it trembles at his voice,

trembles at his voice

How great is our God,
sing with me

How great is our God,

and all will see

How great

How great is our God

Ever have one of those days that you see something as magnificant as a beautiful sunset and it makes you really think How Great our God really is!?! This morning has been somewhat of a struggle for me. I have been fighting a serious allergy/sinus attack for two days. My head literally feels disconnected from the rest of my body. Fearing is fighting off the ear infection plus he too has some serious sinus/drainage stuff going on- with a little cough and it would be really easy to have a melt down. BUT then I thought I would look through the camera and start posting pics on Shutterfly (I'm about a month behind!) and I saw this picture that was taken in Auburn one weekend. How gorgeous. It made me stop and realize that no matter what I think I am dealing with this morning- it is all pretty trivial. It reminded me that I have a God that loves me so much that he creates beautiful sunsets just like this...because he loves us.

Do you have any of these??

Life Saver! Especially being on round three of antibiotics!
Medicine bottle (with measuring marks on the side) My sweet cousin Krista gave it to me for our shower and boy has it been useful!

A "Little Giraffe" blankie. Fearing's Great Aunt Randa gave this to him and it is the perfect size to go everywhere with us. He loves it!! Not to mention it feels like heaven!!

Duckie ( can you tell we are avid NCIS watchers?? Duckie is the medical examiner!) Fearing loves this little duck and we don't leave home without it!

That's all for today folks!

** New Post below too!


The number three has several different meanings around here these days...

Fearing turned 3 months old last week. Blow me away! I cannot believe my baby boy is already 3 months old (well technincally he is now 3 months and 2 wks). He is such a sweet, happy baby. I thought I would tell a little about what he is doing now and about when he started his new tricks! At 10 wks he started rolling from his belly to his back- at first it scared him but then he was so proud anytime we put him on his belly he would immediately push up with his little legs and let his bottom slowly fall over. I will never forget the first time I went in his room to check on him after I heard him making a lot of noise around 3 am. He was on his back (read between the lines if you have any questions or comments feel free to email me and I will tell you my philosophy for my decision.) He had the biggest eyes like 'whoa' so I turned him back over and put his paci back in- then this became a game- every 15 minutes or so and everytime I went to his room after that he would just smile so big and just laugh! It was SO funny- just not so much at 4am. After several nights of this he decided it wasn't that funny because he was sleepy. Now he is a pro and it makes my day when I go into his room in the mornings and he is on his back and smiles SO big. It melts me. A lot of mornings Beau and I both go in there before Beau leaves for work and Fearing just smiles and giggles for his daddy- love it!!

Also, at 10 wks Fearing tasted rice cereal for the first time. He was switched to formula at around 9 wks and after several days of a runny nose, and congestion I felt like something was not right. I started noticing that he would wake up with a clear nose and about one hour after I fed him he would be SOO stuffy again, so apparently my mommy gut kicked in and I felt it was a possible allergy (not that I know anything about that!) I took him to his pediatrician and talked with her about it- and we decided it was most likely a milk allergy. I switched him to Soy formula and that did the trick!!
But I guess the Soy wasn't sticking to his bones real well and he was just acting like he was starving every 3 hours again (after 8 ounces!) SO Dr. Millie suggested to go ahead and try the rice cereal. Fearing loved it!! It was So funny. Beau gave him his first bite and he just kept looking at him and grinning. Although I felt like 1 tablespoon all at once was to much for his tummy so I started breaking it down to 1 teaspoon several times throughout the day. That seem to work alot better and he is doing SO great with it now. Dr. Millie is really 'old school' and believes in early feeding and I think we made a great decision with starting him early- he is so much more satisfied and such a big, happy boy! Last week on his actual 3 month b'day when I went to pick him up that morning he learned a new sound. He is doing this really high pitch squel. It is hilarious!!! Beau has really sensitive ears and I knew he would have a come apart the first time he heard him...but he suprised me and died laughing. It is really funny.

Some of Fearing's other new things he is doing involve his mouth!! Everything is going straight to the mouth! Actually Dr. Millie told me yesterday that she thinks he might be trying to teeth- boy do we have lots of slober! Fearing loves his Boppy chair and reaches and graps his toys that hang down. He loves his mat too- it has a little monster that hangs down and he has figured out how to grap it and put its foot in his mouth! Along with the usual, thumb, he loves soft, silky things and he always puts them up to his face and they usually go in the mouth too. And I can't forget his duck. He has this little Infantino duck and he loves it! It makes crinkle noises and it has several teething rings on it and we don't go anywhere with out his blankie and duck! DID I mention we think he is a lefty?? I am not sure if you can actually tell at this age but his left hand is his strongest not to mention that he grabs Everything with his left hand! Beau's grandad is a lefty and we would love it if Fearing is too!

Now back to the significance of the number 3.... Yesterday I took Fearing to the doctor where he was diagnosed with his 3rd double ear infection! Bless his little heart! I can only imagine where we are going with this- but we are trying this antibiotic for the last time and then we will go from there. So far about 2 wks after he finishes a 10 day round of antibiotic he comes down with another ear infection. He is still so happy and smiling but I can just tell he is not himself.

Oh and he his now Almost big enough for his little johnny jumper that his Aunt Megan and Andy gave him. He loves trying to stand up and he likes to move those legs!! He needs to get a little bigger before he will be ready to get in it for a long period of time. But I thought I would share those pictures!

OK Sorry for the really long post- I have a few pictures to share and I will update again soon!
