And this...

(catching up on pics)We have a four year old in the house.  No, not this one.  But he was happy to celebrate!
Here he is!  
Our favorite place to eat. SNAPPY TOMATO! :)
We spent a lot of time camping this summer.  It was great!
I have a pic of Graham's first time in the cart like a big boy.  Need to find it to compare!

Gav's laughs are the best. (it's hard to see but you really just need to hear it!)

9 Months

How is Gavin 9 months old already?  I need him to stop growing so fast!
But... he won't no matter how hard I try or wish.  
I know this pic is blurry, but that's how fast he is these days!

At 9 months Gavin:
  • weighs 16 lbs 12 oz.  My biggest baby! :) 
  • is crawling everywhere and pulling himself up.  His favorite place is the kitchen. Whenever the fridge is open he high tails it over there. 
  • has three teeth in and is working on his other top one as we speak
  • eats mostly what we eat.  He never really cared for baby food.  He loves goldfish, green beans, yogurt and scrambled eggs.
  • adores is big brother and sister (and the feeling is mutual!) It's so sweet to see Graham with him and Grace is very responsible with him.
  • takes all formula now.  Our nursing ended right around 9 months exactly (thank you teething!)
  • sleeps all night from around 7-7:30 pm to 7-7:30 am.
  • is super smiley and happy almost all the time!

Breaking News!

Breaking News at the Hartman House.  Grace has lost her top tooth!  It was dangling for a long time and she was totally looking all snaggle toothed.  But with some encouragement from her Dad she pulled it out!  

My big girl! :)

Conquering my fears.

My family came to visit this summer and we decided to take everyone over to camp Indicoso to do the zip lines and ropes course.  Aaron, Hannah, Adam and I braved the course. 
We also called Grandma Shirley up!  She had just retired and what better way to celebrate than an adventure!
So....  I've been married to the man who builds these things (he built this one!) and he climbs these all the time.  But I've never gone on one!  I've always been pregnant when we have had the chance.  So.  I got up to the first platform (with some help. Ha!) and then promptly panicked.  Like crying, ugly face, moaning icannotpossiblydothis panic.  Shane was great and gave me the option of getting down but no way was I quitting.  What you see above is me moving through the course.  What you cannot see if my panic and you cannot hear my moaning!  
Hannah rocked it though!  She was nervous I'm sure but she did it all!
Aaron and Shirley were ahead of me and they didn't even think twice about doing it!  Adam?  Not sure this was his most favorite thing to do but he did it too!
And... I lived to tell about it!  Ha!  This was before the zip line and I was singing praises to the Lord that I was going to get down. :)  It made me super proud of Shane for how hard he works building things like this for kids to experience.
