8 months

Our little man is growing up!  He is rocking on his hands and knees like crazy, any day now he will be on the move!  He loves having his belly kissed and laughs hysterically.  He hates having his diaper changed, and cries as soon as you put him down on the changing table.  He has found his boy parts (typical boy)...  He says ma-ma-ma and a few ba-ba-ba's, but still working on the da-da's.  He weighs 15 lbs, 9.5 ounces and is gaining steadily.We are still doing some homemade baby foods, but have moved on to some table foods which he is doing really well with.  Favorites are yogurt, fruit and banana Baby Mum-Mums.  And watch out if you try to take a pickle away from him!
He is wearing 9 month jammies, and 12 month onesies.  Still in size 3-6 month pants, but they are starting to get a little short on him.  I had to move up to the next size in socks (12-24 months) for our little big-foot.  We've had to start buying some more clothes since Brody has gotten taller than Caleb already!

Time sure is flying by!

A day at the Zoo

After our trip to Kentucky Lake we drove up to Jeffersonville, IN to visit family.  We spent Saturday at the...
with Nate, Shannon and their kiddos. 
We saw lots and lots of animals.  They were so much closer to you than what we are used to at the StL Zoo.  

and of course you always have to see these at the zoo right?!
 Check out how daddy showed Brody all the animals!

Kentucky Lake 2011

We spent the week before Memorial Day at Kentucky Lake with Jeremy, Wendee & their little boy Caleb.  We rented a house right on the lake with its own boat dock, pool and hot tub. 

We started our trip off by having lunch at Lambert’s CafĂ©.  We really enjoyed the  “Thrown Rolls”.  It was so fun to see them launch bread across the restaurant.  Not at all what I expected!They gave Brody a little toy roll to take home.  Cute idea, but I think it looks like butt cheeks!

We arrived at the lake Friday evening and took our time getting settled in.  Saturday morning we took Brody out on his first boat ride.  He did really well and didn’t even seem to mind the lifejacket (as long as he was being held and we were moving!).

We went on lots of boat rides, exploring the lake and checking out some of the coves.  Brody splashed around in the lake in the coves with daddy. 

We tried to make the best of the weather while we were there (lots of storms and the pool & lake water were freezing!) Brody really loves to be in the water, and didn’t seem to mind it being cold, of course we didn’t let him stay in very long either.  
With all the recent rainfall the lake had been pretty well flooded, but we made do with a rocky beach area for Brody to have his first experience with sand.

Aside from being invaded by mosquito’s the whole week and the few severe thunderstorms, we had a great time away!
