41 Weeks: Mr. Up-All-Night

Mommy is behind again at updating the blog! It is likely due to the fact that I am so tired that I can hardly keep my eyes open! You have not been sleeping well for a while now and neither daddy or I know why.

A few days ago we decided to try cutting out all the foods we have been feeding you and just go back to square one. It seems to have helped. But now we have noticed that you are definitely getting another tooth, so maybe that is the problem. It's so hard to tell, and I feel bad that you can't tell us.
I also feel bad about having not patience for anything, but it's hard when you are not getting enough sleep.

Anyway this weekend you got to have a sleep over with sito and grandpa. They were happy to take you! And they did all kinds of things with you including taking you for a walk and even a quad ride.

Yesterday Grandpa Tom and Grandma Holly came to visit you and we went out to the field on the quad. Grandpa was shooting his old fashioned guns with daddy. I thought you would get scared of the noise but you didn't even flinch. It is so nice to get outside with you more now and I don't have to bundle you up or worry about the cold.

Here are some pictures of you and Grandpa Richard in his green house. You love to pull the flowers from the stems! And Sito bought you a floatie for the tub. You think it's pretty fun!

40 Weeks: Happy 9 Months!

This is how I crawl

I love Billie

Hey little man! Happy 9 month birthday this week. You have now been on the outside has long as you were on the inside!!
You are moving like crazy now. Well you are trying to crawl! It is more like a drag. You use your arms to pull you along but not your legs so they just drag behind.
You have taken to shrieking or screaming loudly which is quite annoying. Mostly because we don't know what you want. On Friday, last week, we went to Uncle Harvey's bull sale and that was a big event for you. You got meet most of the Uncles on Grandpa's side of the family that you have not met yet. You also met your aunties and many other people you thought you were soooo cute. You saw Uncle Darwin doing his job at the ranch and many cowboys!
This week we went from having beautiful weather to a huge snow storm, so bad that we can't even drive on the roads. One day we were walking in our t shirts and the next we needed a parka! I can't believe it. I am going to try to get some pictures of you in the snow tomorrow.
Also something that we have really noticed with you is that you really want to play with Billie and Gingi. It's okay but you expect them to sit still while you pet them, hit them, and pull on their skin. Of course now they try to get away from you and that only makes you mad. So you holler and get mad, but it doesn't make a difference to them.
You also have little interest in your toys now. Well sometimes. You now want to slither along the way you do, like a baby seal, or a snail, and touch everything else like the blue water jugs, the legs of the high chair which you like, and the DVD player. It's amazing how you have improved on your movement in just a few days!
