Bouncin' Baby Boy!

Latham loves to grab both my hands and start jumping up and down, so tonight after he got out of the bath, I set him up in the bathroom door so that he could jump to his heart's delight.

He loved it...as is evident from his facial expressions and precious giggles!

Pumpkin Patch Fun

On Monday Collin, the boys and I went on our yearly excursion to the pumpkin patch in search of the perfect pumpkin.

We saw super tall pumpkins...

...and not-as-tall pumpkins (maybe because it was on it's side - whatever).

We found that pumpkins make good seats for picture-taking.

Finally found it! Ronan lugs the perfect pumpkin to the weigh station.

Look at me! I'm a big boy!

Ronan begged to play on the playground after the search was over.

Collin begged too...

I think you're a bit big for that slide, Daddy!

Guess Latham's new skill

Here are a series of pictures in which Latham is exhibiting his new skill. Can you guess what it is?

Hmmm...what could it be?

Give up?

Here's a clue: he can do it with his left hand...

...and his right.

Yay for another new skill!

Larrabee State Park

We live near a beautiful state park, and so often I completely forget that it is just on the other side of town for us to enjoy. Luckily, my husband remembers and occasionally suggests that we go there for a family outing.

My men way too close to the edge for my liking!

Mommy and her boys.

A nice stranger had picked up a sea star for Ronan to inspect more closely (don't worry, the man said that he was going to return it to the exact spot that he got it from after he was done looking at it).

What a brave little guy - you wouldn't have caught me holding it!

We don't get a lot of opportunities to get all four of us in one picture so we took advantage of the opportunity when we were visiting Aunt Teresa and cousin Lauryn this past weekend. I think it's a good one!

Solid Steps!

Finally! I've finally gotten a video of Latham walking! He started taking steps over a month ago - one or two now and then. Lately though he's been walking up a storm. My mom witnessed twelve steps; the most I've seen is seven. This morning I finally got it on video.

Way to go, little guy!
