Family Updates

I think I will start from youngest to oldest this time.

Aubrey went for her 9 month check up yesterday. I know I can't believe she is 9 months already. She is doing well and growing like a weed. She weighs 20 pounds and is 29 1/2 inches long. She is sitting up and rolling around but no crawling or pulling up on furniture yet. She does scoot backwards a little when she is on her belly. I can't say that it makes me sad she is not mobile. She is eating like a little piggy. All her fruits and vegetables. We will probably start meats in the next couple weeks. She claps her hands and even on cue. She says la la la la and mouths Da Da Da. We are working on bye bye.

Caleb is a little stinker as always. He is into everything and you always have to keep your eye on him. He likes to pretend to cook but unfortunately wants to use the real oven. We have melted Legos not realizing they were in there. He also loves to put together his flexible race track and loves his babies. His babies are his stuffed animals. He carries them around and rocks them. Puts them in Aubrey rocker and hugs and kisses them saying " Awe Baby". I love that he has such a sweet little sensitive side. He also is in love with the Zoo and is finally starting to venture into the pool a little more(we could barely get him in the water last year).

Jude is enjoying the summer. His hair is white blond and he is working on is golden tan. Which he doesn't have to work to hard. He is into fixing his hair lately. He gets up everyday and and uses Jason's gel to fix his hair. I just did hair cuts and left the top longer so he could spike it. He really enjoyed bible school and is looking forward to starting Kindergarten in the Fall. He is becoming a really good underwater swimmer and is a pretty good bowler.

Ethan is really growing into a big boy. Even though he can push the limits sometimes he really can be a good boy and very helpful. He is also enjoying his summer vacation and becoming very tan. He loves the diving board and slides at the pool. I think he will probably be a dare devil child judging by the rides he chose to ride at our towns festival. He is becoming a more confident reader and excellent at math. He also just lost another tooth on the bottom and has three more that are getting close.

Jason and I are doing great. Busy as usual with work and home life. We have a big to do list of projects we would like to get done around the house this summer.

We are having fun going through our summer fun list. We have spent several days at the splash park and pool, gone bowling, visited the zoo several times, enjoyed our week at VBS and afternoons at the park. Our 4th of July weekend is packed with parties and a Home Depot workshop on Saturday morning.

  2. That little Caleb just kills me. Could be I have a thing for redheads. :P

  3. Jude was cracking me up when he told me about using the gel for his hair!
