Newsletter: 9 Months

Daddy is running late this month.  Sorry, I got sick on your birthday and am just now getting better.  Woo hoo!

This past month was another very packed full of fun month.  It seems like we never stop these days.  Things have gotten much warmer temperature wise so we have been enjoying some out-of-door activities.  You two both love to be outside and take in the sun and fresh air.  There were many more walks in the jog stroller, and a couple of runs (or at least one:)!)

We also rode the bikes to church twice.  The second Sunday we did so was quite eventful.  I was pulling you 2 in the trailer when I blew my front tire about 1.2 miles from the house.  So I moved the trailer to Mommy’s bike and she continued while I walked home (remember to pack a spare tube next time).  I met up with her as service was starting (missed SS).  After church we went to a SS picnic at a local park.  Well we (I won’t throw anyone under the bus here) thought the picnic was at a park south of the church so we headed there.  Turns out it was at a picnic north of the church so we headed that way and met up with everyone, a little more tired and sweaty, but we got there before the party was over.

This month was your first time to attend our annual Crawfish boil.  We had quite the showing and some great mudbugs supplied by Nana and Pop.  Neither of you really had an idea what was going on.  And Abs slept through much of the party, much to the chagrin of most of the attendees who really wanted to catch a glimpse of you two.  But it was a great time none-the-less.

This month we also headed to Houston the visit the Morris clan.  You two headed down with Mommy, Nana and Pop, getting to sleep in their trailer for the very first time.  I came down a day late due to Memorial day traffic.  We had a good time, and you two got to swim in a pool for the first time.  You were both a little apprehensive at first but loved it in the end, getting to splash and kick to your little heart’s content.  While at the pool we saw some cool floaties that we picked up for you at Target.  You both loved sitting in them when we got to use them at the Stelzer’s a week later.

You have both continued to be excellent eaters, and have begun eating some non-pureed food, such as green beans, bananas, and bread (or pizza) crust.  Broken into pieces of course, but you both love trying to pick up the pieces and get them to your mouth.  You have also moved on to sippy cups for you beverage consumption.  This is still a work in progress as it is too fun to fill your mouth by biting on the spout and letting it drain out of your mouth.

G, you have gotten very strong and sit up very well on your own, turning from side to side and bending and reaching every which way to grab what you want.  You also love the exer-saucer now, as well as standing next to your music table.  You have also taken to rolling all over the place to get from place to place.  I’m guessing you’ll be on the move in no time.

A, you are the crawling machine.  Actually, you are more interested now in pulling up to standing on whatever is sitting in front of you.  This includes people, tables, chairs, your bumbo, etc.  The only bad part is when you get near my legs when I have shorts on and you grab tufts of leg hair and tug and tug.  Ouch.

That’s it for the month.  We’ll fill up this one as well I’m sure, loving every minute of it.
