- You now have 5 teeth.
- You have climbed onto the dishwasher door and stood up attempting to help unload it.
- You have climbed onto and over any and all baracades the kids have tried to create to keep you in or out of a room.
- You are standing more now unsupported.
- You think it's funny to bite, not bite to bite, but it's more like knawing due to teething. Either way it hurts and you find it funny.
- You give the BEST open mouth kisses.
- You are very attached to mommy, but are really starting to snuggle up to daddy more and more.
- Mommy left you for the first time with daddy and sissy for 3 hrs so I could get my hair done.
- Mommy and daddy also had our first date this month. We went to dinner and you stayed with Grammy, Pops and Sissy.
- We went on our first family camping trip and it was your first camping trip period! You were so awesome!! You loved riding in the boat.
- You swung in the swings at the park for the first time and you thought that was just a blast!
- You are such a snuggle bug and we love every minute of it.
- You tried avacados and mushrooms for the first time this month and you like them.
- You clap your hands.
- You started waving. You are the cutest! You do the open and close hand wave with your left hand and your beauty queen wave with your right hand.
- You also moved into your "big" car seat this month. You love it!

For the last 8 years my husband has been begging me to go camping with him. It's not that I am against camping, I actually enjoy camping. However, our ideas of camping are somewhat different. I think of the Sequoias, or up in the canyon or even over by the beach. Pitch a tent, have a camp fire, smores, games you know stuff like that. Pete's version of camping: Drive 4 hours, go over Kaiser Pass ( a VERY narrow and steap road), boat across the lake (30 min trip which has to be made multiple times to get all people and gear across the lake), hike (small hike, but still a hike) to camp site, bring rifle in case of bears, shower bag for showers every 2-3 days, fish most of the day so we can eat, and a portable toilet set over a hole dug by yours truly. WHAT? SERIOUSLY? Oh my, oh my. I have finally caved in and am giving him his family camping trip. This is where he grew up camping. His grandparents and entire family used to go every year. I am terrified! I know we will have fun, I am looking forward to spending time with him and the kids, I am excited about being in the beautiful mountains too, but there are definately parts of this experience I am still dreading. I will make the best of it for my husband. I will not complain or make things difficult. I will make sure that he enjoys this vacation!! So before we leave on Wednesday for our week long camping adventure I am going to spend the next two days finding all of the positives and getting myself ready to enjoy my husband's way of camping.
