Beautiful Fall Weather

It's been so pretty out, with the leaves falling and the wind blowing. We've even had a lot of sun. When it's that nice I get to go to the park and swing in the baby swings. I'm so big and strong that I can hang on without any help from Momma or Daddy. When I get to play on the big mat at the park, sometimes my momma will gather some leaves for me to play with. Mostly I just examine them...
Speaking of examining, when we went to the beach last Sunday, I got to play with the sand for the first time ever. It was really neat!
I thought everyone might like to see another picture of me in my Halloween hat. It's sideways but maybe Daddy can figure out a way to fix that...

Love and Hugs, xoxoxo Eamon

Halloween and other green, slimy things

After a lot of debate I went out on the town on October 31st with a spider on my head, sewn by my mommy in the last hour before it was time to go. It worked out though and with my black onesie and orange socks I was comfy and costumed. As if my first Halloween was not excitement enough, I've been dabbling in new solid foods. I love avocado. Most of the time it will all make it into my mouth, but this first experiment in Rice Cereal Applesauce Avocado Mash (yes, my mommy is a chef and she made this for me...) ended up mostly on my pjs. Mommy and Daddy thought I looked a lot like a monster baby. The picture is at the start of this post...

Now that it's starting to get a little chillier and the leaves are all changing on the trees and fall off, we try to go on family walks whenever there's a pretty day. Last weekend was so pretty we ran off to Greenlake for a walk and at the end of it went to a place for lunch. By the time we got back to the car, I was pretty pooped! When things are a little more quiet and we are driving around, I get pretty mellow.

That's all for now. I'm getting pretty close to crawling so I'm sure there'll be a post about that next time! Unless there are just more pictures of me eating these crazy new solid foods!

Hi Everyone!

I decided it might be easier for you all to watch me grow up on a blog (a web log in long hand). You can look at pictures and videos of me more easily and my mommy and daddy can write things about how I'm progressing with sitting up, eating, crawling and one day- WALKING!

Right now, I'm getting pretty tall at almost 7 months old. I'm 28" and I weigh about 19 pounds, which makes me kind of a bruiser when I'm in my exersaucer playing. I like to jump up and down once in a while just to hear everything go BOOM! I've also started to try crawling... I've got the leg part worked out, but my head, shoulders and arms are being most disagreeable.

Also, my two first teeth are always active. I'm constantly chewing on things- mostly toys and blankies and any kind of fabric really- but my favorite chomp is mommy or daddy's fingers. Ouch! Mostly I'm just becoming a happy little goofball. I've learned how to make a raspberry and that's a source of constant entertainment for me.

More soon. I'll put pictures all throughout the text so you can see how happy I always am. But here's one that shows how my mood can be when I need a diaper change!
I'm sending you all big hugs and kisses! Eamon
