Flash Back

Each month I create a folder in my computer for pictures and video we have taken of Shayden that month. Its a way for me to look back and see how much he has changed and what he was doing new at the time. Today as I was looking at my album from July and I had to laugh out loud at this video. It was the first time Shayden really showed us how he can use that little mouth of his in an unsightly but hilarious manner. I hope you get a laugh out of it as I have today.

Clapping Hands

Shayden decided to clap his hands for the 1st time this evening. This is not something we have worked on and I am not sure why we just never really thought to teach him. But as he has totally taken to music and now requests to have it playing at meal time we engaged him in a little session with his hands tonight and he caught right on.
(He's so bright)

A little video for you as well.

Diaper Dudes

I just thought this was so cute I had to post it. Shayden went to hang with his cousins Max and Eli this week at Max's house - who has a rocking water table in the back yard - so we stripped the boys down and let them go at it. They had a blast and wore themselves out!

In fact Shayden was so tired, I packed him up to ride home like this (okay a little redneck I know) but he fell asleep in the car and was out for the ride home.

Thanks for the play date boys!

Red, White and Whoa...Walking

We had a great Fourth of July weekend in which we enjoyed the time together with family and friends and were very thankful for all those who serve our country and protect our freedom.

A huge highlight would have to be Shayden taking his first steps (still trying to get on video for you...coming soon) which absolutely blew us away. He has been moving around the furniture for a while and using his walker a ton but we still weren't expecting it when he made the first move...about 5 or 6 steps!!! He has continued to practice all weekend and is now transfering between furniture without getting down to crawl. I am pretty sure in the next few weeks we are going to have a walker on our hands. Did I mention he is going to turn 9 months this week - "he is so bright" (wink, wink).

We also enjoyed a great concert in the park - thank you Beatles tribute band and the lovely family members that joined is Shayden getting his groove on.
Happy 4th Everyone.
