Michael is on the move these days !

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

It's been a while.......

It has been a while since I had the chance to update with more pictures. I have been very busy at work since it is only a few more weeks until the final corporate tax deadline. I have managed to take a few pictures over the last few weeks, though.

A few of Michael's new accomplishments - he can now climb all the way up the stairs in our house (not sure that is a good thing). He is also starting to stand up on his own without holding on to anything (I hear this means he will walk soon). We have progressed from the free fall to get down from a standing position - Michael has learned to squat down to pick up toys or sit down.

Our latest adventure has been teething. Michael has two teeth - one on top and one on bottom. He is working on getting two more soon. I have not been able to get a picture of the teeth yet (he's very protective!)

Here are a few pictures from the last month -

We went to Tennessee two weeks ago for the Edwards family reunion. Michael discovered the joys of grass. I personally think he wants to follow in his Papa's footsteps :-)

Michael thought my great aunt's walking stick would be a fun toy. At least the strap on it entertained him for a while.

Caroline decided Michael looked thirsty. She tried to give him his cup, but he was more interested in the grass....

While we were in Tennessee, Michael got to spend some time with his great grandparents. Here he is with my Papaw.
Shhh......don't tell anybody, but he picked some of the flowers.
The highlight of the trip for Michael was the discovery of the Power Wheels go-cart at my Nana and Papaw's. He rode all around the yard until our backs were hurting from having to lean over and hold the button to make the go-cart run. Poor Callie had a hard time keeping up (she's very protective and followed the go-cart all over the yard)

Michael is almost 8 months old now. We took him to the park in Irmo last weekend with his Nana and Papa to take some pictures. As you can tell - he's always "busy"

He likes to help Grammy with her flowers too. I think this one needs more water....
