I created this blog specifically with Mom & Dad in mind. Even though they can't be here in Oregon to enjoy their grandchildren, I thought this would be one way to help keep them in touch. I am also glad it can be used to keep all of my friends and family in touch as well!
Curtis joked before we left for CA that William was going to come back walking, talking and with a full mouth of teeth. Granted, they do change quite a bit in 2 weeks, but I assured him that he wouldn't change that fast (o: So, William saved his first tooth for Daddy...We noticed it popped through the day we came home. Now I wonder, "What's he gonna look like with teeth?" It's gonna change his smile, but I'm thinkin' it's gonna make him even more cute! (*No pics...can't quite see it with the camera yet)
William got to spend some extra time with his Uncle Maurice during our CA visit. It was a lot of fun watching the two of them bond. Maurice has a way with the little ones. Here are a few pics of the two of them together...

There was always giggles while they were together...from both of them.
We're down here in CA, just William and I, while daddy spends some time remodeling our home. We miss him alot, but it's been a joy seeing my mom and dad as grandparents. It's definitely going to be different around here when we leave. William's been quite the entertainment. I got a halloween costume and brought it down here (even though we won't be here for Halloween). I thought it would be fun to put it on while we went to the pumpkin patch. Here are some pics of our times at the patch...
My little bumblebee!
It felt like 80 degrees...I'm sure it felt a lot warmer inside his costume!

We went and hung out with William's cousins the other day. It was nice so we were playing outside...in the dirt (they're boys...where else?). I plopped William down with Zane, Luke and Cade to play in the dirt with them. They were a bit surprised I let him. Zane was even more surprised when William picked up a stick and started chewing on it. He asked me if I thought he was chewing on it because it tasted good. I told him he'd better try it and see (o: Luke had to check it out too. Conclusion: sticks don't taste good. I then explained why babies stick EVERYTHING in their mouths.
*They later came up with the same conclusion about grass..."It's kinda bitter!" Zane told me.
My little stick eater
Let's see if I can find a good one...
Zane chose his stick and took a taste!
