Low Crawling Cruiser

Our friend Kim calls my style of getting around..."low crawling"!

I've recently discovered I can try to pull myself up on things like the kitchen chairs.
I've helped my mommy realize how dirty her floor really is...she'll try to do a better job of sweeping and mopping now that I'm cruising around more!

Off to more exploration!

Remembering my grandpa John today

Today 15 years ago my grandpa John went home to be with his Heavenly Father (John 14:1-6). We miss you grandpa John!

Different Swinging Styles

With temperatures in the low 70's this week we've spent more time swinging at the park. Notice the difference between the way my Papa pushes me (catching some air) and the way my Mama cautiously pushes me!

Tennis Ball Prowler

I had fun sneaking up on this tennis ball all over the living room. My new form of locomotion is bear crawling to all sorts of toys now!

I'm not yet swinging a forehand like Emma or "lobbing like Mary"...but a tennis ball sure motivates me to slither around the room!

Yes, success!

Future Pilot?

My Papa has always wanted to fly a plane. Maybe I'll be a pilot someday as I sure like flying my little plane from Auntie Teddy and Uncle Kevin! I also like looking for airplanes up in the sky like Emma!

Graduating to the Front of the BOB

For the past 8 months I've primarily sat in my car seat attached to the top of the BOB stroller...but now I've graduated to sitting up front on runs and walks with my parents. I often look up through the sky light to make sure I'm not alone down here!

The motion of the stroller still puts me to sleep in this position too!

My View of Track Practice

It's a great view of the athletes racing by on the track from down here!

Future Oregon Duck?

As a young Papa dreamed of being an Oregon Duck. He's already "planting the seed" in bringing back this football from his recent cross-country trip to Salem, OR.

Notice how I've tucked the football under my arm...good technique for a running back!

Notice how I keep my eye on the ball...this is key for a good defensive player!

Now it's time to rest and use my football as a pillow.
