Splash pad fun!!

Now that Jeremiah's walking, we went to the splash pad with our friends Shanna, Bailey, Kim and Lily. Here we are eating lunch:

J and B. So cute - they're almost the same size!

And after being terrified (and hungry I think) J enjoyed the elephant - he didn't like the water (well he did enjoy the stuff pooled on the ground) but as long as he wasn't splashed, he was happy.

And...I guess he figured out where to get money already. Yikes.

Happy 10 month birthday, Jeremiah!

Here are a few fun pics from today. In the last month he has changed so drastically, I can't believe it. He's walking all over now. :-(

Eating dinner:

Daddy and J enjoying the beautiful Phoenix weather

Mama and J by the fountain

Having some fun

Swimming with Seth

It was fun in the sun on Friday! Jeremiah cried when he got splashed in the face but then got over it. Yay!!

Puppy overalls

Aren't they cute? Thanks Bubbie!!
(Lily wanted to get around J but he wouldn't move and she wouldn't walk on the grass...made for quite a conundrum.)

Playing in the sprinkler.

Today Shelley and I headed over to Encanto Park to visit "Enchanted Island." It was fun!!

J rode a truck:

And a helicopter:

And finally a relaxing ride on the train.

It's official.

He's walking. :(

I'm sure he'll just get better and better. He improved so fast today I was seriously shocked. He just...kept taking more and more steps and I just stopped counting. He's not even 10 months yet. *hides under table and cries*

In the last month, Jeremiah has gone from having 2 teeth to 5 (almost 6) teeth, from crawling to standing to walking, and is completely feeding himself. Makes a woman want another baby!

Happy birthday, Ari!!

My little cousin Arianna is turning 7 today and her party was yesterday up in Anthem. My mom and I and J headed up there to celebrate. Jeremiah ate pizza for the first time and he loved it, especially the crust!!

And Shawn and I both think he'll be full out walking in a week. Yesterday he was taking 6 steps at a time before falling down. Noooooooooooooooooo!!

Friday, April 18, 2008, look at those

TEETH!!! Like, they are so...BIG!

This is what Daddy and J were doing:

And this was an 'oops' picture but ended up turning out ok.

PS anyone who can name the song I'm sort of plagerizing with my title gets e-cookies for life.

Shhh...don't tell Shawn!

He didn't think I should post this because, well, I forget why. But I thought the grandmas would like to see it.

Jeremiah. 9 1/2 months. A few wobbly steps.

I can't think up a cute title..

...for all these pictures.

When Jeremiah was first born he always used to have one eye open and one closed, so we called him "Pirate boy." Here is a glimpse of him grown up!

Jeremiah with his Grandma and Grandpa.

I'm not sure what happened to his shirt.

And he was so ready for bed. It was 545pm.

Excuse me, do I have something on my face?

J had spaghetti for the first time tonight.

Uhhhh...I think he liked it - what do you think?

Standing up is hard work!

First...sitting position

Next, using toy to propel self to feet

Finally standing!


(He did catch himself, I was shocked because I thought he was going to fall flat on his face!)

And his face in this picture is so beautiful to me for some reason. I don't know how else to describe it.

A day at the park

Yesterday was beautiful, so we took a walk around the lake at Cesar Chavez park, which is right by our house. It was so nice!

Looking north across the lake:

Rockin' the 'hawk:

Going for a swing:

Feeding ducks (and Jeremiah watching them)

Looking towards the mountain (south)

Then today Shawn was doing some work in the front yard. Jeremiah was helping him sweep - can you see the pure joy on J's face? He was having the best time pushing the broom. It was so fun to watch.

Halfway through for some reason I forget and turn the camera - whoops! But the video isn't so much about what you see, it's about his adorable silly laugh. I love that laugh.
