Long Time...Lots of Talk!

Our kid's got a lot to say lately, but mostly he favors "Brrrrrlllllllppppphh." He's been doing this thing where he takes a toy (or his hand) up to his mouth and moves it back and forth while while talking. It makes a cute sound so I thought I'd share.

He also says "hi" a lot. And occasionally we'll get a good "Momma" out of him, but I haven't caught that one on camera yet.

It's been a bit since the last update but I'm behind on the videos. So most of these are a little old, but new to you! Michael now has 2 teeth and we have the sore fingers to prove it. He's been chomping away at most things in his path, and some things not so close that he manages to rake over to him.

He's not crawling yet, but he does "creep" backwards. Really, it just aggravates him and he flips back over. As much as he is a happy boy, he does have his moments of frustration. This next clip he didn't get to play with the new toy exactly the way he he had his first tantrum.

But I can't leave you with THAT! Here is a cuter clip of him discovering that Mommy can make a "pop" sound.

Mother's Day

Our first Mother's Day was a lot of fun. We had lunch at Fatz Cafe and then went shopping at the outlet mall. While at lunch Michael tried some new things! First off, we had our first restaurant highchair experience. He handled it like a champ. No problems sitting up on his own but he was a bit bored, so we gave him something to eat.

Since the potatoes weren't much of a hit, I gave him a taste of my pickle. Apparently that was the way to go. By the way, he does have his first tooth in now. So it was rather dangerous of me to have my fingers so close to his mouth.

After wearing both Michael and his Daddy out from shopping all day, we came home and played with the puppies for a while. He still really likes dogs and loves to pet Vega.

Overall it was a great day and I can't wait for next year!
