Grace loses a tooth

Grace lost her first tooth!  It was only loose for a day, then it came out at dinner.  She has been very proud that she has graduated into the tooth-losing stage of childhood.

Helping with laundry

Max loves Ben’s clothing hamper.  Anything to keep him occupied.  I had to resort to putting him in the laundry basket for a couple of minutes just to get some things done.  Busy busy!

Movin’ on Up

September 16th, 2008 by sarah

Max is mobile…very mobile.  Though he hasn’t learned how to climb the stairs yet (thank goodness!) he still loves going over to them.

Max moves so fast sometimes that I can’t get a clear photo…here he is destroying books.  Guess it’s time to babyproof!

Max loves the grass

September 8th, 2008 by matt

Now that Max is crawling, he has found more interest in adventuring outside.  He played for quite a while on a blanket in the grass in the back yard, checking out the grass, sticks and bugs.

You can see the joy!  Max isn’t completely comfortable crawling through the grass, I think it tickles his legs.  He spends a lot of time crawling around the edge of the blanket, half in the grass.

First Day of School

September 5th, 2008 by matt

This week was Grace’s first day of first grade and Ben’s first day of second grade.  Of course they were very excited and this school year has been going great.  They both like their new teachers and have friends in their class from last school year.

These old pros are ready to rock!

Max crawls for the guitar

September 5th, 2008 by matt

Well, Max has officially started to crawl.  The guitar was an inspiration for him to become mobile.  Here you can see Max helping me play.

What is surprising is how fast the little guy can move!  Time to finish baby-proofing the house.

Baby Bath

Max always has a blast in the bath.  Here you can see he the joy he gets splashing around in his little tub.
