Today was just one of those days...we didn't go ANYWHERE. Thank goodness Christie, Brooks, and Karen came over for some lunch and play! Both Michael and I enjoy getting out and about, but the mosquitoes are so bad right now that playing outside was really tough! Anyhoo, I took a couple pics of my sweet baby playing this afternoon. Just thought I would share!

Look at him playing with his foot!

Mouth open as mother, like son :)

He is concentrating so hard!

If you look REALLY closely, you can see his two top teeth!

Clodhoppers and a wagon

We had such a big day today! Michael is now REALLY cruising. He is on his feet more than anything else. So, Mick and I took him to the shoe store to get him outside walking shoes! I love Robeez and Pedipeds, but I don't want him to walk outside in them. We had him sized and fitted with brand new, bright white, early walker Nikes. They are not my first choice looks-wise, but supposedly they are great for learning to walk. So far, so good! Later on, we put together his super cool wagon and went outside for some wagon fun! He definitely liked it, but really only wanted to be on the outside of it, of course...more room to move!

My sweet boy and his pout

Looking over the side of the wagon...
Thinking "Hmmm how can I get out of here!?"

Big boy!!

Ok...this is my first attempt at uploading a video to the blog. Michael is babbling a lot more now. He even knows that Mick is dadadadada. I was trying to get him to say dada on video, but he just kept saying babababa. Then, Mick walked in the room, and he did it! He loves his Dada!

Lily, Michael, and Jackson (and of course their parents) were supposed to go to the pumpkin patch today for a fun day of activities and photos! BUT, it is raining. Oh well...we will have to postpone our trip until next week. Rain rain go away, come again another day!

Today is the last day...

...for invitation pictures. So I took him outside for more. Here are two cuties!

More tries today...

...and I am still not thrilled! I need an assistant. I can't get him to smile, look the right direction, keep him from falling, and work the camera all at the same time. Grrrr...

These pretty much sum it up.

Look how cute this picture is! BUT, it is too dark in his face...and the background stinks. Womp womp!


Ok, so I am trying to get a great photo for Michael's birthday party invitation. Of course, I want to do it outside. So the light was great today and Michael was in a good mood...thought I would give it a try. The leaves are starting to fall..PERFECT! However, I never realized that placing him in front of a tree was such a bad idea. They are exactly the same color!!! Oh well...we will keep trying!

Happy Birthday Suzanne!

Today is Suzanne's birthday so Michael and I went to Easton. We had a FANTASTIC time! We even had time for an impromptu photoshoot! How sweet are these kids?!

Give me an R!

Finally! We were able to enjoy a Ravens game at home today for the first time this season! The boys got in their gear, Grandma and Po came over, and we all had a great time watching the game. Well, at least the first half...then M3 had to go nightnight. :) We had such a great time...I took a ton of snapshots!

Like father, like son!

Michael and Po :)

Playing ball with Po!

Big Boy!

Cheering with Daddy!

Go Ravens!

Watching the game...


Time for a puzzle break with Gussie.

No hands!

Michael is waving with Grandma :)

Michael and I went to Easton yesterday to visit with Suzanne, Grandmother, Lily, and Jack. We had a wonderful time! We played outside, took a walk, and had a yummy lunch. Michael and I already can't wait to go back!

Sweet Jackson!

Michael already takes Jack's toys...

Going for a walk!


What a big boy!

OMG...that is all I can say...

I can hardly believe it!

Michael's official last day of Gymboree level 2 was today! He probably should have moved on a few weeks ago, but as usual, I tend to drag things out...I just get so used to one routine! Anyway, his behavior today was comical! I wish I had my video camera! Hopefully, level 3 can better contain him!

Michael and Zach

Bubbles, bubbles everywhere!

From dinner tonight...he is just getting used to eating cold things...

Much better!

A sweet newborn...

I had the pleasure of taking photos of an absolutely adorable newborn and his wonderful parents today. I am trying to learn my camera and these folks generously offered to let me come into their home and take pictures of their precious son, Caden. Here are a few...please let me know what you think! I can't learn if you don't tell me! Thanks!
