More Happenings

Here are some more random pictures from our camera. Adam really doesn't like his church shoes. They are really stiff and a little too big. Right after I put them on him last Sunday he cried and ran to the entryway. When he came back he was holding his frog boots and saying "help". Poor baby, I still made him wear the church shoes. I'm mean like that.

I'm glad that Adam's girth makes this picture modest enough to post. Scott went to give him a bath one night and threw him in the tub with his socks on. Adam sensed that something wasn't quite right.

Adam's latest thing is climbing anything and everything. It started with the train table in his playroom. He used his blocks to get up but was unable to get down. No problem, he would just scream until I came to rescue him. We solved this problem by lowering the table and rearranging the room a bit.

I just love this picture. Adam loves walks and always wants to go out the door in the morning. Scott was nice enough to take him for a short walk one morning before work. What a nice Daddy.

I was moving our pictures from the camera to the computer and decided to share a few of the more amusing ones. I took this one a while back. I found this gorilla while cleaning Adam's playroom. I'm not exactly sure what transpired but, seeing as Adam still has all of his limbs, I'd say he won.

We visited Lollypop Farm (our local Humane Society) a couple of weeks ago. Adam was in heaven. There were volunteers out walking dogs, which he stopped to pet. Plus tons of farm animals. He especially liked the ducks.

We went to Strong Museum on a Friday night with some of our friends who have kids the same age. I don't know about you, but it looks like Mrs. Finkle and Scott are having more fun than the boys.

Getting ready to go out one night, Adam insisted on wearing my necklace and cried when I finally took it off of him so we could go. What can I say? The kid's got taste.

This picture looks so sweet, doesn't it? Adam looking out at the bird feeder. Yeah. Look at his right leg. Um, that's his diaper. And no, it wasn't just wet.

That's all for now. I think I still have some more to upload. So, stay tuned.

The Good News and the Bad News

Many of you have noticed and commented on my baby ticker that I added to our blog. We went for an ultrasound today to date the pregnancy since we weren't sure on the due date. The good news is that we saw the little heartbeat and everything looked great. The bad news is they pushed my due date back 10 days. I'm now due on December 12th. The really sad part of this is that I wore maternity pants a couple of weeks ago when I was actually only 6 weeks pregnant. Can you say loser? Yeah, I know.

Houston, We Have a Problem...

Adam is a great kid. He does new things everyday and is constantly surprising us with his creativity and ingenuity. Well yesterday he did something that, while amazing and quite funny, makes me think that he is really going to keep us on our toes.

We were outside and I was planting flowers in our flower boxes. Adam stayed nearby for most of the process but towards the end started heading toward the sidewalk and saying, "choo, choo". He's been obsessed with trains lately so I figured he just wanted to go on a walk and, since he'd been so good while I did the planting, I obliged him. He took off down the sidewalk and I just followed several feet behind him. All the time we're walking he's saying, "choo, choo". Along the way we saw a dog (another obsession) and he stopped to pet the dog, but after the dog walked on he went back to the sidewalk said, "choo, choo" and kept walking. By now I was starting to catch on and so I kept following thinking to myself, "no way".

We live about 3 blocks from the library and there is a back path from our neighborhood that avoids major streets. We take this path to the library at least 3-4 times a week. And that is exactly what Adam did. He walked the three blocks to the library, through the door, and right to the train table, without any direction or prompting from me.

The only thing I can say to assure you that I didn't prompt him is that I had no intention of going to the library. I was in my yard clothes and I hadn't showered...or brushed my teeth. Any of you who know me well know that I wouldn't willingly go into public that way.

Scott says we need to start locking the door. I say, if we ever can't find him, we've got a pretty good idea where to look.
