Busy Saturday

Amery and I had a busy Saturday this past weekend. We started off with a playdate at Julie's house where there were four other babies to play with. These first two pictures should give you an idea of the (happy) chaos:

Then we headed over to Ryan and Kelly's house for their housewarming party. They just bought a house in our neighborhood. The little guy in green was Amery's buddy at the party. His name was Phoenix and for some reason Amery kept trying to chew on his toes.

We finished off the day with some play time with Aunt Jen and Uncle Derek at our house:

11 Months

I know, it's blurry. But what can I do? The kid moves fast in all directions all the time. This is the closest thing I had to a genuine smiley 11-month-old photo.

We usually get a bunch of pictures like this before we get a good one:

We recently introduced Cheerios and they're a big hit. He's careful to get every last one:

Unless there are too many to eat, then he shares with others:

He also learned the proper resonse to "How big is Amery?"... sooooo big. (Where did this little game even come from? It seems that almost every parent and grandparent I know plays it).

Spending time outside after papa gets home:

And his favorite time of the day - naked play time after bath:

The End.

He's been clapping for a while now, but I finally got it recorded. The scoop he's playing with is his favorite "toy" of the moment. It's this weird melon-baller/ice cream scoop combo that I've had since college.

Found it! Playing catch-up.

We found the camera battery charger! I don't have a lot of time this morning, but I wanted to post a few quick shots of what we've been up to the past couple of weeks:

We met Grammy's new kittens.

Loved on Kona.

What happens to your shirt when you love on Kona.

Found the stairs (new gate arriving via UPS today).

Got contained so mama can start dinner once in a blue moon.

Tried spaghetti for the first time. He liked the first couple of bites and spit out the rest, so I guess the jury is still out.

I have stuff to post, I do. Just as soon as I can find the charger for our camera battery...
