Summer is officially here so we opened the pool! OK, we really didn't open the pool..we actually used a hand pump and hose. Noah couldn't wait to jump in and despite the water temperature he insisted on taking a dip.
I also posted a few pictures from last weekend when we visited Aunt Ru Ru and Uncle Greg's for a Bar-B-Que.

Daddy get off the phone so you can go swimming with me!

Yea, I finally got my own pool...thanks Mama!

I need a haircut real bad!

Who wants a cold one?

Hey! Watch ya looking at? I'm the bad boy in town today!

It wasn't me!

A little update on Noah. He will be 20 months old on Tuesday and I still can't believe how quickly time has passed us by. When he is healthy ( which seems rare these last few months) he has really been on the go. He loves to crawl everywhere, cruise along the furniture, climb up & down the stairs without any fear! A big change from just 6 months ago.

His new "trick" is to crawl really fast into the bathroom and pull up to the toilet....and yes splash in the water! EEEEWeee! You can bet, our toilets have never been cleaner! Oh yea, I forgot to mention after he is done drowning his hands in the toilet water, he grabs the TP and pulls it all they way out of the bathroom. You gotta love this kid's adventure!

I wish I can say his mouth is full of teeth, but can only report what is true ....only two bottom teeth that popped through in March! Still working on eating, which has regressed since being sick. We have made progress with transitioning from bottle to straw cup. He is doing great with the straw cup! I'm so proud of him. I still haven't had the heart to take away his morning bottle (mainly because that is when he will consume the most pediasure without a fight and secondly because he still loves his bottle).

He is also doing well with walking behind his pushcart. His PT thinks SureSteps will help him even more so he will be fitted for a pair in the next week or so. He is not yet standing by himself but I don't think we are too far away. He is starting to test his boundaries, by pushing away from the couch for a second or so. It's so cute how excited he gets.

When he first wakes, one of the first thing he does ( after his bottle of course) is point and say " wa daat? "to everything. I say , my nose, my ear, my eyes, my hair , my mouth , my pillow, my arm and so on. This can go on for 15-20 minutes and at 5am , it feels like an eternity. But so adorable.

Well I hope I covered all the highlights for now. I'll be sure to add anything I missed on my next post. I posted some random pictures below. Enjoy Cheers, Terry

The kayak is still beached, just in case anyone was wondering why Noah didn't have a life jacket.

"Wa Daat?"

Oh darn, I can't reach my hands in that water!

Happy Birthday Nan!

Today is the birthday of the most amazing Mom, Grandmother & Friend I know......Happy Sweet Birthday! I love you so much!

Lots of hugs & kisses from all of us, especially Noah!

I won't say how old you are....but must confess that Dad would want me to at least say that you are only 16 days younger than him...hee hee!
