Our Boys

These guys have so much fun with each other...Aren't they cute! My wonderful husband just got me an awesome little mini video camera for my birthday so I'll post video of them in action soon.

This guy gets around!

I'm not sure if I'm ready for walking. My usual view of West these days is generally the back of his head on his way to something I'm realizing I need to babyproof. He's growing so fast. He's still doing the army crawl, but maybe 10% of the time he'll do a REAL crawl! His latest development is waving hi and bye. It totally shocked me! We are always trying to get him to do it and the other day we were talking to my mom on the web cam and she said "bye bye West" and waved and he waved back. So we tried it again and he did it again. We're having so much fun with him as he's becoming more and more interactive with us...he is so sweet!

This is his determined look as he's going for whatever he's about to get into...

Our little prodigy...I didn't help him get into this position at all. The only thing I did was turn it on for him, once he started playing. He LOVES the keyboard.

NOTHING about this set is baby proof. The whole thing is going to have to go!

I grabbed him right after this picture. So far I've been successful at keeping him from eating dog food, but he is pretty determine. Most of the time I've started keeping the laundry room door shut, but then I forget to open it and poor danger is probably starving (you'd really think that if you've seen his latest hair cut!)

He still loves his swing. He won't sit in it anymore, but he climbs all over it. It freaks me out. Sometimes he climbs up the actual swing. He thinks it's hilarious swinging it back and forth, but I'm not brave enough yet to leave and pick up my camera to get a shot of that.

All that action and he's still got his beautiful cheeks. I love it!

McCormick Creek State Park

Last weekend we drove up to McCormick Creek State Park (about 25 minutes away) It was such a fun place. They have camping areas and even an Inn, swimming pools, tennis courts, playgrounds, hiking trails, and big open area between it all. We want to get a group of people together in the fall to go up have a picnic and play football/tennis or something. Anyway, here are a few pics from our day:

Weston LOVED the playground!

It was pretty hot and Danger needed a break!

What a beautiful place to spend a Saturday!

Hodge Podge- Anniversary fun, good friends, and more!

Eric surprised me with Dave Matthew's Band concert tickets on our anniversary. I was really excited, but almost more nervous about leaving Weston for the first time for a full night. We are so lucky to have great friends, Mike and Joy, that took such good care of him! He did much better than I thought and we had a GREAT time on our first date out since Weston was born!! Thanks again guys!

We were so lucky to get to see Abby and Riley our great friends from Arizona! They came in town to visit family in Indianapolis and let us impose on their trip to the Children's museum. Weston loved tagging along with the big kids, but Riley wasn't too sure about having a tag along! (The picture at the bottom is just to show how not excited Weston was to be stuck in his stroller at any time.) We wish you guys were here all the time! We're excited that you'll at least be closer soon!

Turns out Weston can pull himself up to standing now. One day last week, both times I came in to get him from his nap he was standing up and then I was doing dishes and he crawled over and pulled himself up on the dishwasher. Looks like we are going to have to get our house in a little better babyproof shape!

This day I was just trying to do some laundry, but Weston wasn't wanting to hang out alone at all so I was carrying him in the laundry basket from his room to the laundry room. When I set the basket down, Danger kept trying to get to him so I threw him in too. Danger immediately decided he didn't want to be in there and was turning around and jumping all over trying to get out. West thought it was HILLARIOUS!
