I don't have any pictures or video yet, but the little monster is crawling with ease now. He only crawls when he thinks no one is watching. He's pointing out all the "little" things on the floor that I never see. I just follow him around the house and observe what needs to be baby proofed next. Let's just say I have a lot of work ahead of me.

It's perfect timing for him to learn this new skill. Christian has a little cold and is particularly needy right now. So, instead of just sitting in the room where I left him crying he just crawls across the room to where I am and cries. It's pretty convenient for him.

It feels like it's going to take a whole year for his top teeth to finally come in. Eventually they will come and he will be able to bite with much more force. I'm sure I'll enjoy that! :o) My particular favorite moments are when he forgets he already has teeth on the bottom and accidentally bites his own hand. You have to feel a little sorry for him, but at the same time it's so funny.

Hopefully I will have a video or pictures of him crawling soon.

The Zoo

Sea horse

Christian and I went to the Zoo for the first time yesterday. We had so much fun. Here are some pictures of different things we saw.
A gorilla sleeping.

A sea lion swimming.


Christian loved to be outside and see all the different animals.

This is Christian and I in front of some monkeys.

It was such a beautiful day to be at the zoo. We look forward to many more trips to the zoo this year with our friends. Thanks Shalena and Dillon for spending time with us!

We decided to give Christian his first real haircut this morning. It mostly turned out, surprisingly, but the front is no good. Hopefully over time we can figure out a good system. It is definately a 2 person job for now. So, we have to style it either in spikes or faux-hawk or the like until we can figure out how to fix the front of his hair. It's too short and cut straight across...bad idea, but he moved his head right as Dave was cutting..what can you do at that point? We just know to be faster next time. I just can't believe how much hair we cut off of our 7 month old. Most kids I know are 2 before they have a lot of hair to cut. Okay...maybe at least 1.
