Hanson Happenins

Mer sportin' her happy harvest outfit has an EXCITING announcement to daddy PASSED the Bar!!! Yippee Ki-YAY!!! (A special thanks to granny debbie for the outfit!)
Meet Travis Hanson, Esquire AKA my awesome stud muffin. He has taken the oath and is an official Texas Lawyer.
His business partner and good friend, Todd, joined us for the grand swearing in ceremony.
Our newest buddy Judge Hatch introduced Trav at the ceremony.

As you can see, we have experienced some exciting happenings lately. Trav passed the Bar-PHEW and a holla woot woot-and also landed an amazing job. He is a lawyer for TTUHSC (HSC is the Health Science Center). He started his job last week and is really enjoying it. It's weird to say, but we just might be perma Lubbockites. Yup, we always swore up and down when we moved here that we'd only be here for 3 years and then we'd up and leave....but look at us. We really love Lubbock and have no qualm whatsoever with staying (other than the wind and bad allergies). Overall, we are so fortunate that Travio was able to land this stellar job, are counting our blessings and are fixin' to enjoy LBK a touch longer than expected. p.s. thanks to good insurance, I get to start allergy shots-yay.

Now onto our lil' Mars Mars Bo Bars. She is getting so big. She's almost 7 months old and is a tad over 13 lbs. What a heffer aye?! She's long and lean-5th percentile weight and 50th height.

She's not one for sitting on her bum bum, she'd rather lock her lil' leggies as straight as a board and stand all day long.
Check out these here chubby bubby thighs
These pics are deceiving because she really doesn't like her bumbo all too much-DaRnIt- I soooo wish she did. She will sit in it for about 2 minutes and then she'll try/succeed in boot, scoot and boogying her way out of it.
Boy oh boy do we love our little worm. She brings so much happiness, giggles, joy and love to our lives. Not to mention sleep deprivation, loud crying and lots of drool. All in all, we couldn't ask for more in a lil' munchkin. We heart you Mer and are so thankful for you!

Congrats Trav on passing the bar! That's so exciting. I'm sad that you will prob remain in Lubbock. We love having you guys around, but it seems that's where you're supposed to be. Mer is getting so big! She's so beautiful and I love the chunky legs. You guys r such a beautiful family!
