Next weekend we are going up to Breckenridge with Baba, Papa and the Kesters for a weekend family getaway.  More updates to come after that, I’m sure!

Until then, a few other random pics from the month:



Mom had a patient to see in Evergreen, so dad and I tagged along this past Saturday.  Dad and I took a nice stroll around the lake there while mom did her work.  I really like going to see this patient with mom because he has lots of animals – a bird that talks to me, 2 cats, 2 dogs and 3 HORSES!  Here are some pics of me with the animals.

I’ve been spending a lot of time at Gabby and Granddaddy’s house this past month because mom has been working more to make up for our trip to Virginia. BUT even more special than my daytime visits was the 2 day slumber party I got to have with them. Mom and dad decided it was time for a weekend away, so they left me with Gabby and G-daddy while they went to Salida for camping, biking and a wedding. I think I got the better end of the deal!

I turned 9 months old in July! We had to go to the doctor again, but this time they didn’t give me any of those nasty shots – thank goodness! Mom said they pricked my foot to get some blood, but I didn’t even feel it – too busy reading my book to notice. The doc says I’m growing just fine – gaining weight (up to the 25th percentile now – 18lbs, 11oz), growing tall (28.25 inches), and man is my head getting big (75th %ile)! No wonder mom is having a hard time getting my shirts over my head. I also have 2 new teeth, for a total of 6 (4 top, 2 bottom). Now that I’ve figured out this crawling thing, I can make it from one end of the house to the other in no time flat. The crawling is fine for getting places fast, but what I really like to do is stand up on things. There’s a lot more to see when you gain a few inches. I also have a new toy that I can hang on to and push while I walk behind it. Pretty hot stuff. I’ll post some new pics of my new toy soon.
