This weekend has been happy & sad. It was happy because I got to see lots of people that I love - It was really fun to play with Grandma Becky & Grandpa Karroll & Uncle Matt & Uncle Steven. It was sad because we went to my Great-Grandpa Foster's funeral. He was 99 & a really neat man - We will all miss him very much.
I am doing all kinds of cool stuff! I started saying Dada on Friday...I am getting 4 new teeth - 2 on the top & 2 on the bottom...and you can see the other neat things I have accomplished in the pictures below -
I figured out how to pull my arm out of my sleeve!
I found Mommy's pen & wrote on my face. :)

I found the wipes & had fun pulling them out of their box & trying to eat them! And... I LOVE bath time! I have started crying very loud when Mommy takes me out - hopefully sometime soon my plan will work & she will put me back in the tub. :)

The Last Few Days...

Mommy is a little behind on my blog, so I will try & catch you up - Last Monday I had my 9 month appointment with my doctor. He was very pleased with how I am growing - I weighed 15 pounds, 11 ounces & was 26 1/2 inches long. And I didn't have to get any shots!On Thursday we took care of Molly - she really likes my Bebe Pod chair! On Friday night I went to Parents' Night Out at church while Mommy & Daddy went on a date!I am working really hard to reach things! I was trying to reach Mommy's shoes, but she quickly moved them:( Hello!
These pictures are from Saturday, after my bath. I was so happy & being so funny! Mommy & Daddy were laughing and taking lots of pictures because I was really showing off for them! I love to keep them laughing:)
I played with Daddy on Monday because he was off work! I spent the whole day with him while Mommy taught art classes! We went for a walk & played with the soccer ball!

My Trip to the Pumpkin Patch!

Today was such a beautiful fall day! Mommy & I went to the Pumpkin Patch with Sueanna & Ian. I went through a hay maze, I saw horses, goats, pigs, chickens & rabbits at the petting zoo, and we took some pumpkins home for our front porch! I love being outside!
Ian with all the different kinds of pumpkins.

Peek-A-Boo!Playing with hay!
Ian got to go down the slide. Mommy says I will be able
to do that next year!

I am 9 months old! November 2, 2007

This is me in the hospital when I was just 2 days old! I've changed a bunch!
I am such a big boy! Some things about me right now: I love to read books & help turn the pages. If the page has a mirror on it, I love to press my face to the mirror:) I also love to sit & roll the soccer ball back & forth to Mommy or Daddy.
Mommy has started doing baby sign language with me. She is trying to teach me "all done" & "more." Mommy & Daddy also look at me while saying mama & dada all the time - I don't know what that is all about. I just look at them & smile. Are they wanting me to say those words? Today Mommy, Daree, Molly & me were at the Olive Garden for lunch. I decided it would be fun to entertain them, so I started making fish faces & funny sounds with my lips! It was really funny & they laughed. :)

Happy Halloween!

We had so much fun for Halloween - I was a cowboy! I even had a gun! I also had boots, a belt buckle, a sheriff's badge & my cool Texas cowboy hat! We went to Trunk or Treat at our church - this is Mommy & me with Daree & Molly. Isn't she the cutest "Sweet Pea?" Me & Daddy!
Getting dressed to go.
Ok, I'm ready! Where is my horse?
I wasn't sure why I wore cowboy clothes but Mommy & Daddy were in normal clothes. They should have dressed up too!
Daree, Jonathan & their little pea, Molly.
