Annika loves to be outside, especially in our front yard.  Normally that wouldn't be a problem.  But, with Asher being so mobile and us having horrible grass for crawling, it makes it a bit of a challenge.  Today he was happy in his toy and Annika was happy running around.  

Well, happy for a little while at least!

Father's Day

Father's Day was pretty low key this year, but it was still nice.  We started the day at Jan & Greg's.  Greg smoked chicken and ribs and it was delicious!  Then we came home and for dinner Derek wanted pizza.  He ran to Papa Murphy's and they had a kid pizza kit so he got one for Annika.  She had a great time making her pizza!  Asher just hung out and was pretty mellow no matter what we did!

8 Months

Asher is 8 months old!  He is crawling everywhere and loves to pull up on anything he can.  He prefers to be standing, but has figured out that crawling is the fastest way to get around.  He cut 4 teeth on the top, all in the same week!  He now has 6!  He is still not sleeping through the night, but does nap pretty well.  He doesn't like to be in one place too long, which made these pictures very challenging!  Not sure of his stats, but he is wearing 12 month clothes and is a big guy!

New Bike

Annika got her first bike!

How did this happen?  My baby is not only crawling but pulling up on everything!  How did he get so big so fast?  I love seeing him move into each new stage, but I hate how fast it is going.  I do now remember why I hate having hardwood floors.  Every wrong move comes with a loud thud and a screaming baby.  Not to mention the bumps and bruises on his head.  Poor guy.

Curious George

Today Annika and I headed down to Crown Center to meet some friends and see Curious George.  It was fun to hang out with friends, but also to have time with just Annika.  The exhibit was fun and we were lucky that it was not super busy.  Annika has started watching Curious George on the PBS app on the iPad so she knew exactly what was going on!
