Quick Updates!

There really hasnt been much going on lately....we all seem to be in our little routine of things. Many of you know but we have listed our home on the market....we know it wont sell fast but we are still house shopping to be prepared, not to mention decluttering and cleaning all the time!

But Andrew is still trucking along picking up more and more everyday. He is saying so many things consistently now.
  • Kitty
  • Go
  • All Done
  • Hi
  • Bye (not bye bye; just bye)
  • Alright
  • Ball

He is getting really good at pointing too, and following my finger when I point to something. Over the last few weeks he has been working on breaking those molars in. He almost has the 4th one all the way through.....he has handled it well though. It comes and goes which is good fo us all.

Now for pictures:

So since Andrew turned 1 he was supposed to move up to the 1yr old room. He hasnt yet and thats bc there isnt any room. So I spoke with the director and he is now on a more stimulating schedule. They are doing art work wtih him, taking him outside more with the 1yr old class, and many other things that he should be doing at this age instead of just hanging around with the babies all day. Sadly this project he got ahold of and as you can see continued to make a mess ;)

In other news, Friday morning this is where I found him after I made the grocery list! Yes....you are seeing correctly, its a crock pot!

We finally made it out to the pumpkin patch, he wasnt sure what to do....but he knew they were "balls" ;)

Andrew and Eli...we are seeing more and more of him these days. Buddies in the making.


Halloween is in a few weeks....we are headed to a party so stay tuned for all the cuteness you can stand!

Kitty Love

Zeke has become more and more tolerant of Andrew these days. He doesnt run away as soon as Andrew comes around, and he even goes up to him for a little pet every now and again. Andrew has realized how oft Zeke is too and has begun to try and lay his head down for a rest when he comes around.....so you know me....I whipped out the video camera. I couldnt miss the 2 babies interacting ;)

Fall is here! This is the best season in NC! So in true fall fashion we headed off to the fair for a family day. We had lunch and just walked around all the exhibits. Its a little too rich for us right now for Andrew to ride rides...esp when we have to buy double tickets to ride with him. Maybe in a few years.

Tim and Andrew are checking out the largest pumpkin on record at the fair this year! It was huge!


Next we hit the petting zoo, Andrew loved it! He held the line up quite a bit.


And finally with the cold mornings we brought out the wind breaker. Andrew is fianlly able to sport his Indians jacket Uncle Deron gave him when he was a baby! Its kind of close to the Braves though and sometimes we have to correct those who arent in the know ;)


Halloween is upon us too, we have Andrews costume but can't share yet. I guess we will take him a few places this year and see how he does.....stay tuned!
