Wowsers

This is a video I took this afternoon after church, I'm impressed at how well he did on his own. If you watch at the very end he manages to stand on his own for a few seconds before sitting down too.


I saw a friends newborn at church today and I can't believe how quickly they grow. It is hard to think that he was that little not even a year ago.

10 Months

This little man is 10 months old (okay, really he is almost 11 months now, but I finally got pictures taken today and had to share them).



At his check up last week he weighed 22 pounds 10 ounces and was 30 inches tall. His doctor was slightly concerned about his head being so large, but I reassured him he just inherited his mom's big head.


I love that you can see the progression of the pictures because his hair was wet for the beginning pictures since he was right out of the tub and it is dry in the later ones.


Wen loves to stand up. I think he views crawling as a means to get to something that he can pull himself up on. He is beginning to walk places with help from mom or dad holding his hands for balance and is really good now at cruising along the furniture.

Mobile Man

Here are the first signs of forward movement we've had from Wen, this last week.

This video is the first one I was able to get. It is from March 24th.



This video is a bit longer and you can really see his army crawl with flailing legs. He is getting quicker though.


He has already tried to crawl outside after his sisters who left the door open and gotten into lots of things, the most memorable so far was the package of ritz crackers that Malea had left on the floor. He crushed the 4 or 5 crackers that were left in the package and then proceeded to swing the package around raining down a shower of crumbs all over the living room.

Tea Party

In January we finally got the girls' room painted. I let them pick the colors (with a little guidance) and I have to admit it looks super cute. The sister missionaries were looking for some service to do and jumped at the chance to come paint which sped the process up immensely.

To celebrate having the room all done (minus the curtains), the girls decided we needed to have a tea party in their room with pink cookies. So we did just that followed up with a dance party!









(I love this picture of Malea because it totally shows her little personality)






A new trick for Wen

Today Wen learned how to put the balls into the gumball machine. Kaidrei was so proud of him when she saw it. She got so excited for him that he just started giggling.

Laughter

The other night Kaidrei was running around being extremely hyper. Wen was loving it. He kept trying to get the ball she was holding when she would get close enough. Kaidrei started tossing it over him and he was laughing so hard that we had to capture the moment.
