I am 8 months old!

8 months has been a big transition. I am basically crawling - sometimes sideways and sometimes on my feet, but getting around steadily. I am a wiggly worm!  I am also pulling myself up on things - on my knees and sometimes onto my feet.  I have a feeling I will be walking around furniture soon.  I have bruises all over because of my new found mobility.  I am also eating some foods that are not mush - exciting stuff!  The sounds of Da-da, Ma-ma and A-wa (Ava?) have been coming out lately.  Also, clapping and saying "aaaaaaaay!" The coolest thing is that I can do the sign for "more" when I am eating something.  And, I know a lot of Spanish words from Mabel - I even understand when she asks for a kiss in Spanish - I kiss her!

Nanny and Papa visit Sonoma

Nanny and Papa came to stay with us in Sonoma over the summer and we had a relaxing weekend having nice meals, a picnic at Gundlach Bunchu winery and fun in the pool.  More pictures to follow from Papa!

This is us at the winery having our picnic.

Fourth of July in Sonoma

We had a wonderful small town 4th of July in Sonoma.  It is like a movie - exactly what you would think would happen in a cute, American small town. We went to the 2-hour town parade, which was so cute, and had a fun BBQ at the house with Wendy, Tony and all the kids.  We ended the night with fireworks and the Girl and the Fig.  Pretty nice day!
