Happy Father's Day (a few days late...)

I couldn't let the occasion go by without posting this cute picture of my guys on Father's Day.

Update on the house situation: For those who don't already know, we have just purchased our first house! We'll be moving in sometime in the middle of July. We'll post pictures as soon as we can. Woo hoo!

Building Blocks

video

This is a shameless "brag" video! Micah has mastered the art of the shape sorter. We didn't realize this until one day I was sitting on the floor with him, shapes all around and he just popped them in one by one like it was nothing, while humming some little tune to himself. I shot this video shortly after that.

Those 3 little words...

Just wanted to let everyone know that Micah said (his version of) "I love you" for the first time this weekend :-) One small step for Micah, one giant leap for mommy's heart. "I na nu" too, little man.

Backyard entertainment

Here are the promised videos of Micah playing with his toys. You can hear him "counting" as he stacks his blocks at the end of the last one.

New Toys!





Everybody loves new toys--they just get more expensive the older you are! Did you ever think that a box of carboard "blocks" could give so much joy? We hit the jackpot at the garage sales this weekend! Of course, it's the slide/playhouse set that we were looking for. He loves to be outside and we thought that having something like this for him to play on would help burn off a little of that energy he's got! There are no public parks in Arkadelphia with equipment suitable for children of Micah's age, so on the weekends we usually take walks or roam around the backyard picking up monkey balls and pieces of bark--also a favorite Micah passtime. So he is really enjoying this slide combo! I will post some cute videos of the slide soon.

Upside-down

video

Micah loves to be hung upsidedown and every which way, and so was very pleased that Pop Pop liked to indulge him during his visit!

This weekend we found an item for Micah at a garage sale that we'd been looking for for some time. Pictures to come!

Socks!

video

Micah had a great time learning to put shoes and sock on and take them off during Grammy and Pop Pop's visit. Here he is playing a sock game with Grammy :-)

Fun with Grammy and Pop Pop

Ok, Pop Pop. I'm ready for my closeup.
And would you like a size 8, madam?

Bon voyage!
Well, I made it through the surgery and am 11 days into my recovery. I can't say I'd want to do it again, but I am glad I had it done and won't have any more awful throat infections. My parents came down to help us, and we really needed it! Micah had a great time playing with them and showing off all his new skills. I think Dan has recovered from being up at night with me. We had to say goodbye to Grammy and Pop Pop this morning and that was hard, but we're all glad to have things back to normal, kind of!
