Momma and My Adventure Weekend…

Momma got to be very lucky and have three whole days just with me while Daddy went to Chicago for a big important conference. 

She acted as my photographer to show you all what I did. 


Tell me if you think she did a good job.

First, we went to Lowe’s.  Did you know that Mommas can go to Lowe’s too?  It’s not just for Daddies. 


But, she took me to the flower section instead of the tools area.  This is better because there is more to touch.  I liked the daisies.


When we got home, I was her supervisor and I helped her figure out how to clean up our porch.


This is what it looked like before I helped.  Notice the pumpkin left from Halloween and the dead flowers left from Momma and Daddy’s wedding.  Oh boy did they need my help. 


After I helped Momma, here’s what it looked like.  Momma and I decided that this is just the beginning.  We’ll go back to Lowe’s for some more plants…including my new favorites…strawberries.



After this we went to Thursday Night where Mrs. Avis took lots of pictures of me and all my cutie baby friends.  We’ll have to wait for those pictures though.


On Friday, Momma took me shopping…I like being outside and with people, but I’m not so sure about getting in and out of my car seat all the time.   Momma was looking for a fancy outfit for Easter, and did not have any luck.  I guess lots of little boys wanted to have them too, because there were none left. 

And, we got to go on a walk.  Momma forgot to take pictures.  Please forgive her!!


On Saturday, we went shopping and Momma was much more successful.  I now have an Easter outfit.  YAY!  

Then, we went to my friend Hope’s first birthday party!    Here’s pictures from her awesome party at the San Dimas Canyon Park.  Coolest Park Ever!


I can’t even believe that I’m at a birthday party in a park.  My favorite place:  the park!


This is Hope.  She’s big, and she’s one. :)


This park has a sand box.  LOVED it!



Checkin’ it all out!




Parks are awesome Momma!



Hope eating her cake.  I can’t wait for that.  SUGAR! :)


Hope, Caleb and I playing with bottles. 


It was a great party!


Daddy’s back today.  And, I’m glad.  Now the whole family can have adventures.

Collin and Olivia at the park….

We had a fun family park day with the Gray family today! 

Here are some funny pictures of Collin and Olivia:  complete with Sarah’s very funny comments.


swinging together

When there is only one baby swing and two babies want to swing, this is a possible solution.

9 Month Pediatric Appointment…


Chompy had his 9 Month Well-baby check today with Dr. Smith. 

Little Guy is right on track with his development.  YAY!

He weighs 17 pounds, 13 ounces  which puts him in the 10th percentile.  He has dropped in his weight gain compared to other kiddos his age, but his doctor isn’t too worried about it.

He is 28 1/2 inches long, which puts him in the 50th percentile.

He also gets to be a lucky little fella and take iron drops after his blood test showed that he was on the low side with his hemoglobin levels (apparently this is really common with breastfed babies).

And, FYI, babies usually get teeth between 6-10 months, but our pediatrician’s kiddos didn’t get them until they were a year.  I guess maybe God didn’t forget to give him teeth after all.

The funniest part was that we had a little bit of a wait before we could go in.  Chompy, as usual, was very social with everyone in the waiting area, smiled and babbled at all the other kids, and got multiple adults to stop to talk with him.  We have been practicing waving at home and we didn’t think that he had started to do it yet, until he started flapping his whole arm today at another little baby, who was just learning how to do it too. :)  Silly boy!

Mommy and Daddy are so excited that he is now cleared to eat pretty much everything but cow’s milk, and table food.   Stay tuned because our family’s favorite meal,  Veggie Tacos, is on tonight.  We’ll let you know how he does!

Oh and, he is soooo fast at cruising around the furniture now and will stand alone for a few seconds.

Future Musician last week. Future Athlete this week?

Chompy’s mascot…

So since Little Chomp got his nickname, he’s been getting cute little outfits and things with the name “chomp”. 

Today, Grandma Nancy found his mascot: Chompy!! 

See the resemblance?
