First Love

Could it really happen?!! Could River fall in love with my bestfriend's daughter? Would that not be high school bestfriends' dreams come true?! Yes, I know Emi Kate is 2 1/2, but as they get older - she could be a "cougar." Or will their new baby due in January be the one that steals River's heart? I'll have to pin my hopes on Emi Kate because that's all I have to work with now.

Amanda, Heath, and Emi Kate came up for a visit a couple of weeks ago. It was so much fun to have my bestfriend from high school and her family hanging out with us. We had loads of pure enjoyment watching River interact with Emi Kate. It was like he knew...she's a tiny human like me. He thought everything she did was funny. She would roll a ball, and he would crack up which would lead her to do it more. They were very entertaining! I loved watching the spawns of the dynamic duo (Amanda and Kari) playing together. There were times where I could see us in them.

I quite enjoyed having them here, and it made me miss the Ashworth family even more. Here are some pics...

"Shhhhh, Baby!"

"I think she's into me."

"Will you be my girl?" HIGH FIVE!!

"I'm going in for the smooch."

"She likes to cuddle."

Blog Neglect. River Update.

We have been crazy busy lately! Therefore, our blog has suffered the consequences of neglect.
So, just to fill in the blanks, here is a little update of River.
He is wonderful and he is growing like crazy! That just about covers it.
He wants to crawl but can't figure it out. He wants to walk, but can't keep his balance. He talks in baby talk all day long and is getting louder and louder the older he gets.
He loves to play and be tossed around and tickled alot...who doesn't?
He loves his mama, but is getting around to wanting his daddy a bunch to play.
He doesn't know physics yet, but he is eating alot of people food. We (meaning mostly Kari) put veggies and fruits in the food processor and turn them into mush and then freeze it in these ice trays. When it is time for him to eat, we just throw a couple cubes into the pot and warm them up...voila!, baby food. He loves it. He grunts and growls and kicks and yells when he is eating. I think he is trying to say "GIVE ME MORE!". I am teaching him to say please and be patient. I'll let you know how that goes.
We go to the doctor next week for his 9 month check up. Hopefully everything charts out as normal.
