Sorry I haven't been posting much lately. We haven't been doing much, other than Fishy getting all of his molars in, which makes for a lack of sleep for mommy and baby. I'll try to start blogging more soon!

Dirty Boy

We did a little yard work Monday evening. Weeds have overtaken our front flowerbeds, and we're attempting to regain control. Fisher enjoyed "helping". We were all hot and filthy by the time we finished!

Corn is Yummy

We've been loving some sweet corn this summer! Fisher has been enjoying it, too. After we've finished with the cob, he goes to town! He makes the biggest mess but has the best time.


Here are some random pictures from the last few weeks!

Being a busybody and climbing in all of the cabinets!

Playing in his deflated pool

I babysat both of these boys by myself-it was a long day!!

Watching cookies bake-and he didn't get to eat any!

Lunchtime staredown

A nicer lunchtime look :)

Getting into Yaya's Tupperware with his partner in crime

Some new recipes I tried-baked chicken and cheese manicotti

Messy avocado face

Riding in Style

Fisher got a new car for his birthday from his John Pop and Nina. He loves this thing! He opens and closes the door, sits in the seat, stands next to the car and has the best conversations with himself-hilarious. Not to mention, the horn drives Lenny crazy, so we have a lot of fun with that! :)

Fisher is 13 Months Old!

what a mess!

*Fisher weighs 20 pounds, 9 ounces.

*He wears cloth diapers and 6-9/6-12 month outfits, depending on the brand.

*He is getting closer to walking on his own! He cruises on everything, and is a pro at walking behind his walker. He has stood by himself for a few seconds at a time, but hasn't gone from sitting to standing by himself yet.

*He is a climber! Stairs, chairs, you name it, he climbs it!

* He still has a great appetite. Most of the time, he is very willing to try whatever I give him. His current favorites are blueberries and strawberries. He is still working at drinking out of a sippy cup, but is getting better.

*He still loves to be outside. We play outside almost every day, although we don't stay out for very long since it's so hot.

*He's sleeping in his bed every night. He still flips and flops all over the bed. He will stand up in the bed when he wants to get out. He's also gnawed on his crib rails.

* He is loving books right now, which makes this momma very happy! We read multiple books several times a day, and we always read a book before prayers and bedtime.

*Breastfeeding about every 3-4 hours (when he takes a bottle, it's usually 6-9 ounces). He's back to waking up 2-3 times a night, but still sleeping until around 9 most mornings. He is still napping twice a day, usually an hour long each nap.

*His vocabulary is really developing. His favorite word is still "DaDa". He will sometimes say "MaMa". Other words include duck, dog, Duchess, outside, choo-choo, bath. His favorite new phrase is "how do", which he learned from Elizabeth. I'm probably forgetting some, though. His words are hit or miss-sometimes he'll say them, sometimes not. He's also appearing to be picking up on some signs. He understands "milk", and will (somewhat) sign "all done" sometimes.

* He loves to clap and pay Patty Cake. He will lift up his arms if he wants to be picked up. He will give hi fives and wave goodbye or hello (sometimes on command, sometimes spontaneously).
*He loves it when you sneeze or cough, real or fake-he laughs every single time!

*He loves to play in the floor with his toys. He loves anything with wheels; he likes to push his toys across the floor.

*He is giving "kisses" now. He gives great big open mouth slobbery kisses. He'll sometimes do it when you ask him to, but mostly it's just because he feels like it. :) He also likes to give hugs, too.

*He is very attached to his lovie. He drapes it over his face when he sleeps, chews on its head, and talks to it. He now wants to have it when he's not in his crib. We now have two more lovies-one stays at Yaya's and one is for the car. :)

*He is still very much into sucking his thumb. When he's tired he sucks his left thumb and rubs his face with his lovie in his right hand.

*Still loves taking a shower.

* He has eight teeth! He has four on the bottom and four on the top. He's getting some molars now, but they haven't popped through all the way yet.

*Nicknames:  Fishy, Bubs, Bubba, Bubby, Baby, Buddy, Fisher-man, love
