on september 13 james had his "White Coat Ceremony". The best part was that his mom came to stay with us for the weekend!
here we all are after the ceremony. doesn't james look handsome in his coat?
and here's scott with his grandma palmer.
later that day we all went on a nice walk.
and then we saw this really scary turtle.
apparently he's a "snapper" turtle because he snarled like a dragon and almost bit off more than one of our extremities. i wanted a picture with him because he was such a freaky turtle.
james (the more loving one) wanted to save the freaky turtles life.
scotty had so much fun with his grandma palmer.
we can't wait for her to come visit again.
since we last wrote on this blog, scott has decided to make leaps and bounds in his abilities.
here are a few of scott's new tricks:
you have no idea how big of a deal this is. usually when we lay him on his tummy he
burrows his face into the blanket and yells until we pick him up.
scott was a bit skeptical about his first time on the bouncy chair. but he got the hang of it.
scott has found that he can hold onto things. which means a lot of new things are getting sucked on.
but more than anything scott LOVES sucking on his fingers. this has brought on a whole new challenge when it comes to putting clothes on him. its like playing tug-a-war to get his fingers out of his mouth so we can put a shirt on him!
and scott is getting so much better at sitting up! take a look:
but sometimes the best tricks are the old tricks.
last week we had a few cold days so we had to snuggle scott up real tight when we took him outside. you think he's cute in summer clothes? you aint seen nothing yet...
i'll let the pictures do the explaining.
but luckily summer isn't completely over. this past weekend the temperatures got back up in the 80's so scott and i went to a fun park with some friends. we walked on the beach in our bare feet.
and scott even got to swing on a real swing!
we can't wait for the new week to begin to see what fun adventures we can have!
we'll keep you posted...
