The past month... beware a long post!

So its been a while since I have updated our blog. Life has been crazy around our house. Jeff has been working long hours between the golf course and Blue Valley Irrigation. I keep busy between being a mommy, working and helping a dear friend prepare for her wedding day. And here is what Josiah has been busy doing...

Just a little exersaucering... this great invention will entertain him for a long time!


...hanging out with Mr. Giraffe before eating cereal.
...catching some zzzzz's. He has been sleeping so well at night!

....having lunch with his friend Meryl who will be moving away in a few weeks!

...swinging. Daddy built this incredible swing set for Josiah and he absolutely loves it. Josiah takes after his daddy as loves being outside.

...waking up in the morning all smiles! Such a happy boy when you let him wake himself up. More like mommy when you have to wake him up before he's ready - not all smiles!

...wrestling with Uncle Caleb and winning!

...consoling Uncle Caleb when he loses. Who could be upset with this sweet little snuggler (Josiah - not Caleb!)

...learning from the best. Grandpa just had his tractor repainted and couldn't wait to show it to Josiah.

(couldn't help but include a couple pictures of this). We all determined the tractor was "parade-worthy" now.


...sitting up almost all by himself. Josiah is really starting to get better balance and needs less and less support each day!

...getting his first haircut, well, just a trimming. We decided it was time to trim the few really long hairs (see them sticking out from his forehead) as they were creating a weird comb-over.
... and here is the after haircut picture. Daddy did a great job for using a scissors around the squirmy little guy.

Well thats all for now! I assure you more pictures to come after this coming weekend!

Here is a new photo to hold you over... more to come! Daddy built Josiah a swing set this past weekend and Josiah loves to be outside and swing.

Sittin' pretty

video

Josiah has been doing a lot of changing and developing recently. He always seems to be doing something new. He has really started grabbing for toys and playing with them. He also now enjoys sitting up more than laying on his back. He can't balance himself, but if he is propped up he can "sit" for about 10 minutes or so! We have also invested in a garage sale find - an exersaucer! He loves it and keeps discovering new toys on it.

I will try to post some new pictures soon, but enjoy this video for now.
