Playing Catch Up

I know it's been a while since I gave you an update on our little family. Life seems to sneak past me, and before I know it, the end of another season has arrived. I, for one, have cabin fever as Spring plays the tease here in New York. Temperatures will spike to the 60's for a day or two and then plummet back into the 20's with snow and wind. The flowers are beginning to poke through the ground and I had the pleasure of an early spring weeding (literally a pleasure) last week when there was an afternoon of sunshine.
Brian celebrated a birthday at the beginning of the month, and we are looking forward to using his birthday present all Spring and Summer long. Don't you just love the smell of a barbeque? :)
And the star of this show, little man Jake, is really getting the hang of sitting up on his own. He's not quite there, but it's close enough that Brian said we could call it good. Jake now has four teeth, two on top and two on bottom, and he continues to chew on whatever he can get his little hands on. I knew that babies put everything in their mouths--it's how they learn, but I never thought I'd compare my son to a puppy when it comes to chewing on things! Though he's not crawling yet, he can get himself to just about whatever he has his mind set on. He rocks and rolls, twists and turns, until he's either victorious or stuck. LOL! In some ways I wish he could crawl, just because I love watching him progress and develop, and in others I'm happy he can't get into more trouble than he already does.

Oh my goodness, that baby of yours is too CUTE!!! Every picture looks like it should be in a magazine or commercial or something. Hopefully warmer weather gets to you soon. :)

I am with you on wanting the spring to come!
It is so fun watching that little baby of yours grow. He has teeth!

I LOVE the baby laugh video! Baby giggles are the best...and they are contagious!
